5 Fandom Friday - If I lived in the Harry Potter universe

As the new US houses were announced right before I wrote these prompts I thought it would be fun to write one based on me, if I lived in the Harry Potter universe. Enjoy!   My Hogwarts House would be….   Originally when Pottermore first came out I created an account and was sorted into Slytherin, however, after signing up again recently (I’d lost my account details) I found myself sorted into Ravenclaw.
