Two days ago I finally got my Pottermore-mail. One day after Hanna had received hers. Of course I was super-excited! :D
I was looking forward to getting a wand and to being sorted (though the latter actually scared the shit out of me) and to be part of it all. And I have to say: I'm loving it. There's not a lot you can do yet, but the parts that are active are lovely. I'm totally happy with the graphics and all the little details and the extra-info <3

So I got my wand :D 10 inches, pear, unicorn-core, slightly yielding. If you've received your wand you can also read about the traits of the different components. It said that a unicorn core is very unlikely to let itself be turned to dark magic and that it had never happened to pear-wand before, meaning that a wand like I have now will always choose an owner who is very unlikely to turn to the Dark Arts. Seems like I won't be a wicked witch ;)

The part I was most scared of (but also most excited for) was getting sorted. I've been a Gryffindor for almost eight years, in several online-communities and after even more online-tests. My superawesome self-made cloak had red velvet lining and a lion-badge, my friend made me red/yellow wristwarmers for christmas last year. I have identified with this house for a long time. A friend recently told me that 'If you aren't a Gryffindor, I don't know who is'.

But for some reason I knew I wouldn't get sorted into Gryffindor again. And I was right. I'm a Hufflepuff now. And I know it fits, somehow. It just feels weird... I was really upset after the sorting. But I was even more upset when I read comments by fellow 'puffs, saying how much they hated this house and how they wanted to delete their account and get a new one because 'Hufflepuff sucks ass!'. People, grow up, please, it's just a game! And then I tried to find the good in all that... and hey, we have a common room full of plants (some of them are even dancing!) right next to the kitchen and we most certainly have the cutest heraldic animal :D That badger is waaaay better than the lion (that looks almost as retarded as the Finnish one :P).

But I will most certainly not change the lining in my cloak because I hate yellow. I will, from now on, be a mixture of both houses. After all the Gryffs are the people the Puffs get along with best.
I'll be a Hufflepuff, alright, but I'll always be a Gryffindor at heart. A badger with a lion's heart, so to speak. It can't hurt to be good and brave, can it?

Also, my superawesome friends from school are coming over tonight and we're having a barbecue <3 I'm really happy we're doing those meetings more often now. We did the first 'revival' last year in October and within the blink of an eye 12 hours had passed. We were having so much fun :D We did another one earlier this year and now we're doing the next tonight. I'm really looking forward to it. The Tzatziki is already waiting in the fridge, so are the veggies and the stuffing for the mushrooms. Wheeeeee! <3
Four hours until I'm done with work...
