Anyway, yeah, I’ve been on Pottermore and will still be for a very long time it seems. This blog is going to illustrate the words ‘inconsistency’ and ‘random’ in the coming editions of most illustrated dictionaries. I’m serious. I’m like, insanely trying to not be driven crazy out of excitement ever since I joined and was sorted into Gryffindor. It’s been magical and it’s been only the journey through the first book. Some of my students are there too, which makes the whole matter of being on Pottermore even crazier.
Luqman Hakim: Teacher, mind if I steal a bit of your time?
Me: Yeah? (as I fumbled with my things before rushing to class that morning)
Luqman Hakim: I’m in Hufflepuff.
Me: Oh, that’s great! We should duel!
Nuqman was even bolder, ‘Teacher, I’m in Slytherin.’ That look on his face. Haha. Priceless. ‘You’re in Gryffindor?’ That other look on his face. That one eyebrow that was raised? God.
Syafiq Amran even called me FeatherAsh at one time. Which was so Pottermore I couldn’t even!
So, I have been:
What!? No, seriously just where the heck did I go wrong? Why isn’t it brewing? Wait..what’s that green smoke! No! My cauldron, IT BROKE !@#$%^&*()! I need to get a new one, don’t I? And it’s crazy expensive plus I’m not earning anything! Picking up galleons in the school isn’t paying for new cauldrons! And why the hell aren’t platinum ones sold? 43 minutes to brew a potion! I have other stuff to do!
I have also been:
What wand is this Slytherin boy using? Petrificus Totalus, spell cast potency – 145!? Just seriously what wand wood and wand core is THAT!? I practiced, OK!? I just – I don’t wanna talk about this. Mine’s Alder, 11 and a half inches. Core – Dragon heartstring, slightly springy. Nadiah! Yours is like one of the largest wands in Pottermore database! 14 and a half! Mental!
Jasmine: How did Kak Aimi land in Slytherin?
Me: I think what baffles me more is just how seriously we’re taking this. Just. Crazy.
Jasmine: (laughed out loud, for real)
Honestly, I don’t even know what I’m doing here anymore. Many of you are Harry Potter fans, yes? I think you guys should really check out Pottermore. Get registered. Get sorted. And take the journey through all the books yourselves. I don’t think you’d be disappointed.
And if you decide to be in, don’t forget to add me up – at Hogwarts, I am
a proud Gryffindor. Will I see you there, people?
I hope so.
