Hufflepuffs are considered the underdogs. The nice guys. Some have even gone to the extreme of saying they’re leftovers. Well honey, grab yourself a nice cuppa, sit yourself down and lemme tell ya: HOW DARE YOU?! YOU ARE EVERYTHING WRONG WITH THE WORLD AND PROBABLY SHOULD NOT EVEN CONSIDER YOURSELF A POTTERHEAD YOU – YOU &@*!#$(^ sorry, it’s naughty to swear BUT YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO —
*takes a deep* ok, let’s get down to business! (you sang that didn’t you?)
1) Name one bad Hufflepuff… I’ll wait…
Exactly. Maybe some of the Huffies have been slightly irritating in the book but we don’t get much worse than that. Slytherin has Voldemort, Gryffindor = Pettigrew, Ravenclaw = Quirrel but Hufflepuff? Nope.
2) Celebrity Hufflepuffs
Are you trying to say Josh Hutcherson (aka Peeta from the Hunger Games!), DWAYNE ‘THE ROCK’ JOHNSON (inner fangirl squealing!), Jimmy Fallon (The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon!), Katy Perry, Leonardoo DiCaprio are LEFTOVERS? I don’t think so.
3) WE GET DIGGORY!
Cedric Diggory, good-looking and heart of gold is a perfect Huffie. (Just saying, Robert Patterson would rather play Cedric over Edward – HA TWILIGHT!)
4) We also get Tonks
Was Tonks lame, boring and pathetic? No, but she was just, loyal and trustworthy. Plus she was a metmorphic half-witch who RIGHT AFTER GIVING BIRTH went and gave the greatest dark wizard of all time a run for his money!
5) The Hufflepuff dorm is right next to the kitchens!
No wonder Helga Hufflepuff was famous for food-related charms. I understand now that my love of food is only a sign that I’m made to be a Hufflepuff!
6) Ever asked yourself who founded Hogsmeade?
Imagine no Hogsmeade. No butterbeer, no Three Broomsticks, no Zonko’s Joke Shop, no HONEYDUKES?! Yes, you guessed right Hogsmeade was founded by a Hufflepuff!
7) Hufflepuff has the best house ghost!
Let’s face it. Nearly Headless Nick was irritatingly whiny, the Bloody Baron is just really scary, the Grey Lady is just sad all the time but the Fat Friar? A fun, loveable, friendly ghost all the students love!
8) The Hufflepuff common room is just a ray of sunshine!
Beautifully calm and soothing, it’s built kind of like a badger’s sett with lovely honey-coloured wood tables and a welcoming portrait of Helga Hufflepuff herself! Not to mention the lovely greenery Professor Sprout brings in!
9) J.K Rowling praised her daughter for saying that everyone should want to be a Hufflepuff!
The Queen herself!
10) The Queen says a lot more about Hufflepuff house!
Hufflepuff is her personal favourite house because next to Gryffindor, Hufflepuff had the most number of students in the Battle of Hogwarts. Not to show-off or be reckless but because it was the right thing to do. That’s the essence of Hufflepuff!
So fellow Hufflepuffs keep Huffling! We rule!
If you’re not a Hufflepuff – its ok, read my other blog posts (sorry no Gryffindor, I mean let’s face it, you guys don’t need convincing that you’re awesome do you? Keep doing you!)
