Best Hogwarts Houses

The Top Ten
1 Ravenclaw

My house, Ravenclaw, is, in my not-so-humble opinion, the best house because we are accepting, intelligent, creative, quirky, and yes, even crazy. We don't hide our flaws like Gryffindor or Slytherin. We embrace them like the Hufflepuffs.

Thank you for finally noticing and recognizing Ravenclaw as the best house! We are smart, cunning, and willing to learn. They break the rules at least 5x less than all the other houses.

Yes! Ravenclaw members are open-minded, which is a great quality, and they are willing to learn. Also, the Ravenclaw Common Room is the most stunning of them all.

2 Slytherin

THE BEST HOUSE. I don't get all the prejudice against this house. Our traits weren't evil, cruel, and mean, they were determined, ambitious, cunning, witty, and intelligent. THERE IS NOTHING BAD ABOUT THAT. And just because the symbol is a snake, snakes are misunderstood animals, just like this house is misunderstood. I'M a nice person and I'M in Slytherin.

I felt perfectly fine with Gryffindor at first, but once I saw their attitudes that every single person that gets sorted into Slytherin is bad and that they're better than everyone else, I started to hate the house. Slytherin isn't the evil house as everyone calls it. It's just the house for those who want to work hard and succeed.

3 Hufflepuff

I like Hufflepuff because, first off, and no hate towards other houses, but I feel that Hufflepuff is way more compassionate and inclusive. Despite it being severely underrated, characters in Hufflepuff shine through with their bright personalities.

Although I am a Ravenclaw, I'll try to support my fellow Hogwarts house and make it sound intellectual because the smarter you sound and spell, the more convincing it'll seem. Hufflepuffs are said to be kind, and that is a strength we should all embrace, rather than take for mere weakness. Come on, we're better than that. They are also patient, a skill not every human being has learned to master. I, myself, could do with some crash courses on how to be more patient. Plus, they are humble and gentle creatures, and allow others to move at their own pace.

I am friends with two Hufflepuffs, and while even they can grow a bit stubborn, they are nice and warm-hearted. J.K. Rowling herself actually stated she is part Hufflepuff. If you're still not convinced, go onto Pottermore and check out the Hufflepuff invitation - it'll change your perspective on being a Hufflepuff. Also, Tonks was one. With Hufflepuffs like Tonks and that one lady who built Hogsmeade, you can never go wrong.

By the way, it's so tacky when you use slang and spell things incorrectly thinking it's cool. Sorry, those were Ravenclaw instincts.

4 Gryffindor

Gryffindor is my favorite in the movies but is not the best. They come in at #2 as they have one of, if not the best, wizards to ever exist, which is Harry Potter.

I mean, who wouldn't pick Gryffindor? It was the protagonist's house, and the other houses weren't fully detailed in the books as much as Slytherin and Gryffindor.

Go Team Gryffindor! We're awesome and a million times better than Slytherin! Slytherin should be last because who would like an extremely mean teacher as our homeroom?
