Eagle is cool!!! I like the Ravenclaws since the first time i read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.. Actually, i watched the movie first before read the book, and i like the sound of 'raven' and 'claw', when Professor McGonagall mentioned it in front of Harry Potter and the others..

Being the intelectual, smart, and elegant... why not being an eagle??!!!

Horribly tragic, Scarlet. And nice, Ginny.

...and also because I enjoy hanging out with the slightly crazy (in a good way), arguing, intellectuals. It makes for enjoyable entertainment.

On a different note...

Ernest Slughorn wrote:What led me not to ask for Ravenclaw was that it valued sheer wisdom. I didn't find that fair, as not everyone can be smart.

Well, if not everyone can be smart, they go to a different (but equally good) house. That's what makes us so unique, we have something some of the people in other houses lack, as they have traits we might lack. Which, because of the balance, does make it fair.

Plus I find sheer wisdom (as well as intelligence) completely, awesomely awesome.

Funny story, I was actually a Hufflepuff when I went on the Harry Potter website quiz when I was eleven. But then a whole lot of crap happened in my family and I changed because I had to. So partly because it had to be mostly Ravenclaws that diagnosed me and my dad and my brother with our things, and partially because I really dislike yellow, I decided that I was going to be smart and Ravenclaws are smart and so I became a Ravenclaw.

Is that even allowed? To change your house after you've been sorted? Probably not in Hogwarts, but here it's fine. Lucky for me!

I find Gryffindor very overrated and quite a boring house. Gryffindor is the only house we really read about in the books. Plus I always found Luna a very interesting character, and she came from Ravenclaw. When I answered the sorting hats questions, I did it as honestly as I could - so I didn't choose to be an Eagle. I, in fact thought I was going to be a Slytherin, as I'm very proud but quite cowardly, any sense of danger and I forget all loyalty, and run. But I wasn't surprised with my results when they came through, because I love books and puzzles. I'm very happy to show my intellect though my house! I got sorted into by far the best one!

Rekindling this thread. For me, i've always adored books. I want a library in my house when i get a big enough one. I always assumed the Ravenclaw common room would be littered with interesting books and bookcases. *Sigh* it sounds like heaven to me.

In regards to my personality, i'm a bit of a perfectionist, which i've been trying to curb. I love learning and love doing homework, which is weird but there you go. Even the annoying stuff i kind of enjoy, because it's so satisfying when its all done.

Another interesting topic...

Aidan - you're not alone in thinking the Ravenclaw common room sounds wonderful; I feel I'd have enjoyed it a bunch, as well.

Why I originally wanted to be an eagle, though? If we're talking about way back, the first time I decided on Ravenclaw, it was pretty much because blue was my favorite color, birds were my favorite animals, Gryffindor and Slytherin didn't sound all that appealing in the books (too many extreme personalities and too much drama, maybe?), and I suppose Hufflepuff wouldn't have been bad, but eww yellow. So, yeah, kind of shallow. >_<

Over time, luckily enough, it turned out that Ravenclaw - valuing wit, intelligence, love of learning, creativity, intellectual curiosity, etc. - ended up being the house I best fit into.

I've always wanted to be a Ravenclaw, since I first read the books. In my mind, they were always the intelligent and creative, and what I've inspired to be.
