From day one I’ve wanted to be in Gryffindor. This isn’t because I fancy myself as particularly brave, or that I really felt like I fit in there. It’s much simpler than that. I want to be in Gryffindor because that’s Harry Potter’s house. Go ahead and laugh, it’s OK.
I’m one of those people who relates to the main character. Someone who latches on and loves them, for whatever reason. While Harry Potter isn’t my favorite character, I have always felt like we’re friends. (I realize that my true Harry Potter craziness is coming out in this post.) When I first started reading Harry Potter in high school, when only 3 of the books were out, I devoured them, read them in study, and wandered the halls of my high school, pretending that I was at Hogwarts too.
My three best friends were Harry, Ron and Hermione, and I couldn’t wait to read again, just to see where we all left off. I can always tell when I’m reading a good book because I think about it constantly when I’m not reading, and feel like the main characters are my friends too.
Naturally, since Ron, Hermione and Harry are my best friends then I would be in Gryffindor too. So that is why I have Gryffindor robes and a Gryffindor scarf. It’s also why I refuse to take any type of “which house should you be in,” tests, because I’m afraid it will place me somewhere else. Away from my friends.
