If we're looking at it logistically, I would have gone to Ilvermorny not Hogwarts (unless they take exchange students. Do we know if the wizarding schools have abroad semesters or accept students outside their pulling areas). So when it was announced that there was a written history written and a sorting test, I was more than curious about it.
The history of Ilvermorny is enchanting, as surely expected seeing that J.K. Rowling wrote it herself. The chance to uncover more of the wizarding world always gets me excited. I feel a particular fondness for Isolt Sayre, more than I expected honestly, because of her Irish heritage. I am many generations removed, but nonetheless, partially Irish (like 1/3 I think).
For those that don't know, Ilvermorny has four houses modeled from Hogwarts. They were named by Isolt, her husband and her two adoptive sons. They are Thunderbird, Wampus, Horned Serpent, and Pukwudgie. They are all named for magical beasts native to North America (I think). Each of the houses have character traits and representations that have become associated with them.
The Horned Serpent represents the mind and is said to favor scholars. The Wampus represents the body and is said to favor warriors. The Thunderbird represents the soul and is said to favor adventurers. And the Pukwudgie represents the heart and is said to favor healers.
Alright, now that we've got the back story, let's get on with it shall we? I took the test and was sorted into Pukwudgie! -- It seems like it's pretty accurate because I do think with my heart. I am a very empathetic person which makes me sensitive to others' struggles. Pukwudgie favors healers and, to take that face value, I wouldn't necessarily say I'm a healer. I'm not great with medicines and I am absolutely lousy when I am sick. But I do care about the mental and spiritual health of those around me. I've been known to have a shoulder to cry on and an pair of ears ready to listen. Sometimes, healing comes from both of those things.
So while this is fun, I'm not particularly attached to this school or any of the houses, like I am Hogwarts. I just think it's neat. Maybe my fondness will grow overtime, who knows? But for now I remain fondly a Hufflepuff and a Pukwudgie. Peace.
