I was reading an AU fanfic of the Harry Potter 'verse that diverged in year 5 and took Hermione to a place I'm not sure the character would go and it made me wonder about choices I've made in my own life over the years at various turning points. To get myself out of the introspective and slightly dark mood that put me in, I decided to go through the process of generating an account on Pottermore by answering as I would have answered when I was a teenager, at least to the best of my ability. This time, I was sorted into Hufflepuff instead of Gryffindor, my wand would have been English Oak and phoenix feather instead of Cedar wood and dragon heartstring and my patronus would have been a ginger cat instead of a thestral. My Ilvermorny house remained the same: Thunderbird. Anyway, I just think it's interesting how the cynicism and hardness that developed from my initial idealism through life experience were reflected in these little quizzes. Has anyone else done this? What were the differences in your results, if any?
