go lemmings go
The Harry Potter test surprised me. I thought I'd come up as Hagrid or something, but:

# 1 Harry Potter
# 2 Hermione Granger
# 3 Ron Weasley
# 4 Ginny Weasley
# 5 Albus Dumbledore
# 6 Minerva McGonagall
# 7 Remus Lupin
# 8 Neville Longbottom
# 9 Rubeus Hagrid
# 10 Charlie Weasley
# 11 Percy Weasley
# 12 Draco Malfoy
# 13 Bill Weasley
# 14 Fred/George Weasley
# 15 Voldemort
# 16 Severus Snape
# 17 Sirius Black
# 18 Gilderoy Lockhart

Oh, and the Sorting Hat would put me in Ravenclaw. Raise your hand if you're surprised.

(Maybe later I'll manage to come up with an entry that contains actual writing. It could happen, ya know.)

So I'll ask here as well

As far as I've read, the houses are:
Gryffindor: The house where we put noble young heroes and sidekicks
Slytherin: The house where we put weaselly villains and sidekicks
HufflePuff: The house where we put most everybody else
Ravenclaw: The house where we put Susans
Do the last two houses develop personalities of their own in later books?

Hufflepuff seems to be for the Marthas, patiently beavering away. Cedric Diggory, who gets a lot of screen time in the fourth book, is a Hufflepuff.

Ravenclaw is supposed to be for the intellectual types, as contrasted to Gryffindor, which emphasizes bravery (to the point of not looking before you leap, apparently). ?Celia? Chang, Harry's "not-exactly-love-interest-but-girl-I'm-intrigued-by" is a Ravenclaw, IIRC.

Of course, I don't have the books handy to reference. (Who *did* I loan them to? Arrgh.)

What's a "Susan"?

Something I've always wondered...

So why did Hermione get sorted into Gryffindor and not Ravenclaw, with her obvious academic leanings? Story, sure, and she's a great friend for Harry and Ron, I like her a lot, but it never really seemed to fit, given the general school definitions floating around out there.

I utterly agree, although we do get hints of her gutsiness in the first book, and I think it gets nicely expanded on in the fourth. Putting her in Gryffindor is about as subtle as "all the bad guys came from Slytherin".

I thought somebody had told me that more than one person named Susan was admitted to Ravenclaw, when I asked about it earlier, and then they couldn't think of anybody else except Ms. Chang.

In the fourth book, one of the Gryffindor girls (Padma Parati? it's clearly an Indian name) is noted as having an identical twin in Ravenclaw.

In general, I'm noticing the books get more complex as the main characters mature. (There are even some hints that Dumbledore might have hidden depths, and I'm looking forward to seeing those followed up.)

I'd really like that, and hope the kids don't mind.
Yesterday on our monthly CostCo run, Leigh Ann picked up the big four-book box, and so I figure if I'm sneaky and can find a book of the approximate size and color to replace them with, I can scurry off with the last two and get all caught up.
