What You Should Know About: Hufflepuff
In a lot of ways Hufflepuff is considered the joke house of Hogwarts.
They don't seem to get a lot of attention
They don't seem to have any great rivalry with any other Hogwarts house
They're not the smartest
They're not the bravest
They're not the most cunning
But that doesn't mean you should mess with Hufflepuff, here's a few reasons why.
Hufflepuff's are exceedingly loyal and just. Fair and kind
Let's not forget, that when Voldemort came to attack Hogwarts and demanded Harry, they were only a split second behind the Gryffindor's in raising from their seats and surrounding Harry.
It was so close it was like the two houses rose as one.
Also, during the triwzard tournament Cedric trusted Harry enough to take his word about the dragons, and in turn told Harry about the second clue and taking a bath
They've produced plenty of powerful wizards who can help change the world.
More so than any other house, Hufflepuff seems to make more powerful wizards and witches that leave their mark on history, true the other houses produce wizards and witches who go down in history, but that happens every generation or so, while Hufflepuff seems to pop them out every year.
Goods with plants
We meet the head of Hufflepuff soon after Harry gets to Hogwarts, prof. Sprout, but we also find out later that the common room has plenty of colourful plants and flowers in it, which can give a calm and happy atmosphere, keeping people stress-free in times of exams and such.
It's also said a good number of people who have found the discoveries of plants and improved potions came from Hufflepuff, but we also know some have a penchant for animals as well.
They're unconventional thinkers.
Sticking to what is known is okay, but sometimes you need to think a little weird if you're really going to discovour things, or solve things, or invent things, or change things. But not only that, their thinking also opened the doors to many others to Hogwarts over the centuries.
Let's not forget, Slytherin was all for keeping the school pure blood only.
Keeping all that's been said in mind, there is one thing you should never, ever forget about Hufflepuff.
Don't. ****. With. Hufflepuff.
Think about it people:
No school rivals outside the norm
Produces many powerful wizards
Loyal, determined, patient, hardworking, tenacious
Not only will Hufflepuff **** you up, but they'll do it in ways others won't think about, they'll do it in ways no one sees coming, in ways no one can link it to them.
There are many rules at Hogwarts, written and unwritten, one of the unwritten rules is: Don't **** With Hufflepuff
You might see them as happy, go lucky stoners who don't stand out. But it's all a facade
Hufflepuffs have friends. Many friends. In lots of places. Important places. Common places. Places you think you're safe, but you're not.
They're almost like the mafia of wizard Britain, only much nicer. They'll shake your hand and get to know you before shooting you in the back with a spell.
So please people, for the love of everything you hold dear. Just remember one thing.
Don't. ****. With. Hufflepuff.
