    We continue the house pride celebrations and today it’s the turn of Gryffindor house.

    Gryffindors can be proud of the bravery and courage displayed by members of their house. They can also be proud of being the only other house apart from Slytherin to have been awarded the Pottermore House Cup so far, meaning that this is their chance to repeat their victory and draw level with Slytherin overall.

    Whether displaying their house colours or participating in our creative challenge, today is the day for Gryffindors to roar. So, get ready to be creative and parade your pride in the Great Hall and your common room, as well as on Facebook, on Twitter using the hashtag #GryffindorPride, and on other social networks. Let everyone know how proud you are to be a Gryffindor!

    Gryffindor-themed Facebook and Twitter cover images
    For the last house pride week we created some cover images for your Facebook and Twitter profiles. Having seen how much the community enjoyed and used them, we’ve decided to create some new cover images that we hope you like:

    The awarding of the House Cup is only a week away, and today’s the day we celebrate all things Hufflepuff, who currently hold the lead in the House Cup standings.

    Hufflepuffs can be proud to be members of the most loyal and trustworthy of houses. They have much to be proud of but, since Hufflepuffs aren’t known to be boastful, you may not be aware of some of their more illustrious members, such as Newt Scamander – the authority on magical creatures – and Hengist of Woodcroft, who founded Hogsmeade village.

    So Hufflepuffs, get ready to be creative and parade your pride in the Great Hall and your common room as well as on Facebook, on Twitter using the hashtag #HufflepuffPride, and on other social networks. Let everyone know how proud you are to be a Hufflepuff!

  • 09/06/13--09:10: The best of house pride week
  • In the run up to awarding the fourth Pottermore House Cup we asked the Pottermore community to display their house pride, and we have thoroughly enjoyed celebrating each house and witnessing the amazing and diverse ways that proud Pottermore community members celebrate their affiliation.


    To help you display your pride we shared some cover and background images for Facebook and Twitter profiles, which you can find here for Slytherin, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor and Hufflepuff. We also took a poll of some of your favourite wizards and witches from each house, challenged you to share your pride and gave the younger ones a creative challenge. Read on for our take on the best of house pride week!


    We really hope that you enjoyed house pride week and now it’s time to take all your pride and turn your attention to the awarding of the Pottermore House Cup as every point earned still counts. In accordance with past award ceremonies, the hour-glasses displaying the house points will be concealed on Tuesday and the winner will be unveiled on Thursday in the Great Hall.

    Creative challenge
    We prepared a creative challenge for younger members of the Pottermore community, and out of all submissions received, we’ve chosen eight of our favourites of each house crest and created the collages below.

    Thanks everyone for participating!



    Poll Results
    We organised a poll for each house asking the community to vote for their favourite witch or wizard from that house. You can find the results below.


    Slytherin Poll Results: Your favourite witch or wizard from our poll (Facebook and Pottermore Insider results)

     


    Severus Snape might not be everyone’s favourite professor in Potions classes, but the Pottermore community voted for him as their favourite Slytherin wizard in this poll.

    Ravenclaw Poll Results: Your favourite witch or wizard from our poll (Facebook and Pottermore Insider results)


    Garrick Ollivander was your favourite Ravenclaw wizard in our poll, and it comes as no surprise, given that his fine wands have been put to use by many members of the Pottermore community when duelling or brewing potions on Pottermore.com.

    Gryffindor Poll Results: Your favourite witch or wizard from our poll (Facebook and Pottermore Insider results)


    The witches were the stars in Gryffindor’s poll, being the two most popular choices of Pottermore community members. Hermione Granger was voted the most popular Gryffindor with more than 30% of the votes.

    Hufflepuff Poll Results: Your favourite witch or wizard from our poll (Facebook and Pottermore Insider results)


    Hogsmeade may be a favourite with Hogwarts students, but it seems that popularity isn’t enjoyed by its founder Hengist of Woodcroft. Instead, Cedric Diggory, Hufflepuff’s Quidditch Captain, was voted as Hufflepuff’s favourite wizard in this poll.


    Our favourite Pottermore.com comments and tweets

    Over 10,000 messages were shared about house pride week on Facebook and Twitter as well as Pottermore.com, showing the great pride members take in belonging to their houses. These are some of our favourite messages from members of the community:

    On Thursday September 12th, yellow shone through the Great Hall as Hufflepuff won the fourth Pottermore House Cup. Members of Hufflepuff were seen in high spirits in the Great Hall under their house banners, surrounded by loud cheers. Members of Slytherin, Gryffindor and Ravenclaw brought pride to their houses by graciously accepting defeat and congratulating the winners.

    It was a hard fought competition and during the past four months each one of the four houses held the lead at one point or another, but it was the hard-working Hufflepuffs that managed to reach the award ceremony on top. It is the first Pottermore House Cup victory for Hufflepuff house, which we’re sure makes it all the more special for them.


    As a reward for winning the House Cup, members of Hufflepuff house will receive 24 hours early access to the first instalment of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Hufflepuffs will receive a Pottermore.com Owl Notification to let them know when the early access begins.

    We know that Hufflepuff house worked hard to win, but for the first time we’re bringing you some insights about what else members of the four houses got up to on Pottermore.com between this House Cup Championship and the last.


    The Pottermore team would like to congratulate all Hufflepuff members on this well deserved victory, and commiserate Ravenclaw, Gryffindor and Slytherin. Now that the fourth Pottermore House Cup has been awarded, it's time to turn your attention to the next Pottermore House Cup and help your house achieve victory by winning duels and correctly brewing potions.

    Last week we conducted a poll of some of your favourite Pottermore.com Moments from Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Having read many of your comments beneath Moments, it was quite difficult for us to choose ten Moments for you to vote for, but it seems it was even more difficult for the Pottermore community to decide which of these ten was their favourite with 'Riddikulus', 'Honeydukes', 'Lupin's Tale' and 'Time-Turner' being the most voted for as can be seen below.

    (Left: Pottermore Insider votes, Right: Facebook votes)

    Although there wasn’t a clear winner, the Moment that came top of our poll was 'Honeydukes' for Pottermore Insider voters and 'Time-Turner' for our Facebook voters.

    Are you surprised by the results of this vote? Which Moment was your favourite and why? You can discuss your favourite beneath that Moment on Pottermore.com, as well as on our Facebook page or on Twitter using the hashtag #PrisonerOfAzkaban

    ‘Fine!’ said Hermione suddenly, getting up and cramming Unfogging the Future back into her bag. ‘Fine!’ she repeated, swinging the bag over her shoulder and almost knocking Ron off his chair. ‘I give up! I’m leaving!’
