I never thought I was a lion. I am one for being truthful, and for example, while I am very brave, I'm only noble when it concerns my close friends. And things like that. When I started on the internet about two years ago, I really was a Slytherin, I used my wisdom to get what I wanted and such. But I think these places, (places like think) have turned me slightly more into a Slytherin.

I have a really good site to find out your house, I wont post it, because I'm not sure if it's allowed, but it gives youscores out of, I believe, onehundred, for each hfouse. I useualy ge t seventies for Ravenclaw, with Slytherin about three points behind, Gryffendor is within ten points behind, and Hufflepuff usually falls at about 50% the grade of the others. I'm anything but loyal, and pathetically lazy...

I'm the one a tschhool who goes around awing the teachers because, to express my self, I use bigwords.

If you w ant an idea of me, by the wa y, take Luna Lovegood, add a spectacularly short temper, determination, and the ability to understand WHY everyone is being all weird to me.

*Beruthiel wanders into yet another forum area*

Ahh, what was it that made me want to be an Eagle? Why was it the Sorting Hat put me in Ravenclaw?
My fellow Eagles, I can say only this: While the Lion uses his strength to obtain his greatest desires, the Snake uses his wiles and cunning, and the Badger uses his heart, Eagles combine the best of all three.
A true Eagle acknowledges the pride of all the Houses while using his or her own strength, cunning, and heart.

Plus, Ravenclaw is all about logic and wisdom, which are not always the same thing.

I actually wanted to be in Slythie, but I figured I would be a Ravenclaw. I'm too nice. But I love Ravenclaw, because I love to learn things and like to think things though. Gryffindor? No way! Professional coward here, complete with high-pitch scream. :lol: But seriously, there is much too much focus on Gryffindor. Course, it is Harry's story after all.

why did i want to become a ravenclaw? well, before i really got into harry potter books my friends were all over them. they would sort out all their friends and they would just be in whatever house they wanted them to be. i was in ravenclaw apparently. and once i came to hol, i got sorted as ravenclaw even though i wanted to be a slytherin. i could never be a gryffie, not brave enough. couldn't be in huff, not nice enough.. couldn't be in slytherin, not sly enough.

and besides, blue and bronze rock! i really like it because my room irl is painted the same clue as ravenclaw colors..

Choose to be in Ravenclaw? Every online sorting test I have ever taken has put me here, so I guess it's just where I belong...though really, I don't think I'm smart enough to be a Ravenclaw, I am certainly proud to be here.

I am a reader, and love learning, but I am also somewhat brave, and hard working. I could even be a Slytherin as I am quite ambitious, and at times self-centred. However, I thought I would fit best in Ravenclaw or Gryffindor, and chose Ravenclaw for the final question because I wanted to be with people who were here both to learn and socialise, and learning is very important to me

Knowledge is key.

In RL, that's my main emphasis--and I guess it just carried over. I adore learning, though I may hate to study, and enjoy pure wit and cunning more than any bravery or hero-type defeat. I express myself through writing, music, and personality, and that's what I feel the Eagle stands for. Tall, proud, and confident of what it is. So much more than physical features.

When I started reading HP, I was all for Griffindor. To me, they rocked hard.

But now that I think about it, Griffindors, to me,charge into things too fast. Ravenclaw seems more appealing now, and I wanted to be in that house. 'Sides, I don't fit into the 'hero' thing too well.

I would have to say the use of logic over braun or power or bravery...I mean, I'm a pretty courageous person, but I ALWAYS think out solutions before I act on them...and I think that the books could give us a little bit more on the other houses

Postby Anonymous » Wed Jul 13, 2005 1:07 pm

In online quizzes I'd taken I got sorted (pretty much equally) in both Gryffindor or Ravenclaw, depending on the tests. I've always prefered Ravenclaw, cause I think I value knowledge above bravery and I think I have more of the first. I don't think I'm really that brave.
Also I've always been a very logic person, I always look for an explanation for everything, and try not to act irrationally. I prefer to think twice, always.
Knowledge is, to me, one of the basic engines that move our world. It makes us learn and improve, so I consider it a very important key in our lifes.
Oh! and I also love reading :lol:

Go Ravenclaw!

Hey Kaitlyn, Ravies don't have to be cowards.
We love to learn, and learning leads to knowledge, and knowledge leads to wisdom... and wise people don't need to fight...

Well, eagles are made up of smart people.
And throught the boook Eagles are also NICE!!!
Anyway, I've always liked Ravenclaw,
bravery sometimes isn't my thing.
It is better than Slytherin (sorry Serpents!!)

It's becuase I am really smart and I am not brave at all. And I really like birds.... And blue is my favorite color. There's lots of things. :D

Well, when I first started reading HP, I thought Gryffindor was really cool. But then Ravenclaw sort of fits my character. I'm smart (kind of :roll: ) and logical and wise (well, my RL friends say that anyway), and...I dunno, it just feels like I'm in the right place with my Eagle mates :)
