Neville asked the Sorting Hat to be put in Hufflepuff because he found Gryffindor’s reputation bravery intimidating.
The first Harry Potter novel was published in 1998, the same year that the final Battle of Hogwarts take place. “I open at the close.”
Just curious about these two facts because the majority of them were really quite interesting (I’m re-reading the series now!). I checked my Philosopher’s Stone book and it says it was published in 1997. So maybe JK Rowling met Harry before the final battle at Hogwarts haha.
And I wonder if the Neville thing is true, because Harry asked the hat to not be put in Slytherin and was put in Gryffindor. If Neville asked the hat to not be put in Gryffindor, shouldn’t that mean he would be put in Hufflepuff? I mean, there’re other factors of course, and he certainly belongs in Gryffindor after all, but this just seemed to contradict what happened to Harry. I think the hat probably knew that Neville wanted to be brave and be in Gryffindor secretly even though he said consciously that he wanted to be in Hufflepuff.
Just thought I’d post because I am re-reading it after all. On the third book now, just finished the second earlier today. I’m starting to appreciate Harry as a character moreso than I have before. He really is fairly brilliant.
Don’t click the thing if you haven’t watched the finale yet. This is the thing:
I finished it.
Started reading it yesterday.
Finished it today.
…good gods what have I done?
So my thoughts throughout reading, may include spoilers so..
Reading Tsubasa is emotionally draining. I highly recommend it.
I found it online and started it yesterday. I’m on chapter 136. So many references to other CLAMP works, good gods. I don’t recognize most of them because I’ve only read Clover, watched Cardcaptor Sakura and read the first omnibus volume of the Cardcaptor manga, and am reading xxxHolic. So I feel like a lot of this going straight over my head.
…some things never change.
