I finally got my Pottermore welcome email! It's so awesome! I don't know how many of you have actually accessed Pottermore yet (if you have, or are yet to, please give me your username so I can add you to my Friends list!), but I know that when you get a chance to you'll love it!
So far I have:
-found out Professor McGonagall's background

If I was really in the Wizarding World, the Sorting Hat would place me into Hufflepuff, in which I would suffer from disappointment at my House's terrible Quidditch performance, terrorizing at the behalf of Slytherin, scornful looks from Ravenclaw, and pity at the behalf of Gryffindor.
I have hope, however. Tonks and Cedric Diggory were great wizards, strong and intelligent. JK Rowling even considers herself a Hufflepuff. But I can't help but wonder, maybe if I answered one of the questions differently...
Great. My Pottermore homepage now proudly displays a badger. Very frightening.
