You Can Now Enroll at Hogwarts Via MOOC

Meet Hogwarts Is Here, a fan-run online wizard education, in which you can "enroll at Hogwarts, collect your textbooks and begin taking our 9-week courses online. You can now progress through all seven years of schooling and be assigned a professor, homework assignments, quizzes and more." The most popular course is Defense of the Dark Arts, naturally, and here is the answer to the most important question: you have to sort yourself. [Via AV Club]

Do I put myself in the house I really want to be in, or do I acknowledge what house I know I am deep down (Hufflepuff)?

There's the rub.


@Statham I always get sorted into Ravenclaw by quizzes and such, but I know in my heart that I would be sorted into Hufflepuff (or beg the sorting hat) because this is their common room: http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Hufflepuff_Basement

<3 <3 <3


@adorable-eggplant DAMN. I did not know that existed (because as the page says, "The Hufflepuff Basement was the only common room that Harry Potter did not enter at some point."). Blatant discrimination


@saraldn 'Puff 4 eva. I'm rereading the Goblet of Fire at the moment and am reminded of just what a raw deal they get, but it's all leveled out by the sweetness of having a common room off the kitchen.


@adorable-eggplant @Statham i am sorta afraid i am slytherin y'all

Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that)

@j-i-a if I may, I would say that your clever responses to your player haters indicate a cattiness not unlike that of a young Draco Malfoy, and I mean that in the best way possible (let's just pretend there is one.) However, you do not possess any of the pure evil of a Tom Riddle type, so I don't think you're full-on Slytherin. There are lovably witty and intelligent characters who shut down their haters and live in other houses, I'm sure.
Do you speak French? Because Beauxbatons would probably love you, and we secret Hufflepuffs would cheer for you at the Triwizard Tournament.

did i really just write all that


@j-i-a Annnnd that just inspired me to spend (too much?) time reading up on the Slytherin problem: http://bronzedragon.tumblr.com/post/30187808385/the-problem-of-slytherin

I've got room in my heart for my Slytherin sistren. Ambition is just another world for hustle (or maybe that's ambition + industry, but still).


@adorable-eggplant Oh god, I sorted into Ravenclaw already and I've made A TERRIBLE MISTAKE.

That common room is DOPE.

Suggestion: I like "ladies first" a whole lot, but if the Hairpin ever needed a new tagline, I recommend "a site for self-sorted Ravenclaws who are really just Hufflepuffs in denial"


made it amazing in your own way :)@y
