I think I fit that description pretty well. I'm not really brave like the people in Gryffindor but I am extremely loyal and always try to be open minded and fair....so I guess that's why I like Hufflepuff lol. Plus, Tonks was a HufflepuffThese belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal.
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil.
I agree, you have to look incredibly deep into the book to find out the clues about all the houses, and even then, they aren't all represented well.152 views, 22 votes, and 9 replies. Hmmm.... :b
BlueBamboo, I agree that there isn't equal representation of each house in the book. It's not very fair. And also I don't think Slytherin was created by the founders to be a house of all bad characteristics - actually, quite a few of their characteristics can be taken as positive in the right context, such as slyness. I don't have one of the books in front of me, so that's the only one I can think of, but I hope you get my point. :b Just as well, as you said, Gryffindor members can be self-righteous instead of just confident and brave. As I got further along in the series I started to get annoyed with Harry for that reason.
Also, for everyone, if you could elaborate on why a certain house is your favorite that would be awesome. Especially Slytherins (is it because Alan Rickman was hot as Snape in the movies? ) Actually, especially everyone, because the other houses are so under-represented. I think you'd have some interesting reasons for liking Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw.
And because talking about HP is fun.
