No kidding. I always felt that two of Rowling's real failings in the series were 1) never providing an interesting Hufflepuff; and 2) failing to provide a single heroic Slytherin at the big fight at the end (unless you count Snape, but it's bothersome that not a single Slytherin kid stayed behind).
Hmm . . . looks like I'm a Hufflepuff too."I cut my hand up real bad."- Ark
If I ever do Harry Potter RP, one of my character concepts IS a non-evil Slytherin.
Slughorn came back after taking the Slytherin kids to safety in Hogsmeade, and he's a Slytherin. But the point that not a single Slytherin *kid* resists Voldemort is well taken.
You know HP and the Methods of Rationality? I was startled and then convinced by his observation that the only two houses that really matter are Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw, ie the people with the brains to have ideas and the people with the work ethic to make them happen. The other two houses are about thwarting eah other, which isn't very productive, all things considered.
Everyone knows the Hufflepuffs ride the short broom to school.
According to the Potter wiki (http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Hufflepuff), Cedric Diggory and Nymphdora Tonks were Hufflepuff. Go figure...@Jenna: I'm with you. First thing I thought of for a character idea. @Rob & Theron: Agreed. You'd think at least one Slytherin kid would have actively fought against Voldemort.@richard: Hah! So true. :)
Funniest thing I've seen all week. Thanks, Monkey.
Slytherin just seemed to be a house for baddies. I never understood why the school didn't, when a child was selected for Slytherin, just have them quietly killed in order to avoid future difficulties :)
Hahahaa! Just took the Sorting Hat test (http://www.thealmightyguru.com/Reviews/HarryPotter/Docs/Quiz-House.html), and turns out that I'm... Hufflepuff :)
I'm lactose intolerant. I took an online sorting quiz. I'm a Hufflepuff LOL
