When Pottermore got started, this blog was a way for people who had not yet gotten their letters to take advantage of those who had. Now that Pottermore is open to the public, it's more of a glossary, a compendium of all the exclusive new content in Pottermore, all in one easy place.
You'd think I wouldn't need to say it, but if want to experience Pottermore for yourself without it being spoiled, DO NOT READ ON. Obviously.
Congratulations! I’m Prefect Percy Weasley, and I’m delighted to welcome you to GRYFFINDOR HOUSE. Our emblem is the lion, the bravest of all creatures; our house colors are scarlet and gold, and our common room lies up in Gryffindor Tower.
This is, quite simply, the best house at Hogwarts. It’s where the bravest and boldest end up – for instance: Albus Dumbledore! Yes, Dumbledore himself, the greatest wizard of our time, was a Gryffindor! If that’s not enough for you, I don’t know what is.
I won’t keep you long, as all you need to do to find out more about your house is to follow Harry Potter and his friends as I lead them up to their dormitories. Enjoy your time at Hogwarts – but how could you fail to? You’ve become part of the best house in the school.
