“Those patient Hufflepuffs are true and unafraid of toil”
According to Hagrid, poor ol’ Hufflepuff have always had a bit of a reputation as ‘a lot o’ duffers’. Strong words, but why does this Hogwarts house always draw the short straw? Why can’t people just be nice? And who doesn’t love badgers?
Stay tuned for the ‘Fascinating facts about HUFFLEPUFF’
1)Hufflepuffs rule the world.
In the wizarding world, Hufflepuffs likely grow up to hold the jobs that must be done though no one wants them. While the glamorous jobs are snagged up by Gryffindors, the corrupt ones by Slytherins, the complicated ones by Ravenclaws, Hufflepuffs are back here making sure the world is still running. Without Hufflepuffs, everyone would be in big trouble.
Hufflepuffs are known for their hard work, dedication, patience, loyalty, and fairness. Best of all, they demonstrate these qualities at every turn. Newt Scamander is one of the hardest working individuals in wizarding history. Professor Sprout worked tirelessly to produce a remedy for the petrified state victims of the basilisk of the Chamber of Secrets faced. Tonks waited so long for Lupin to propose to her. Cedric Diggory died in defense of Harry Potter, his competitor, after offering him the Tri-Wizard cup for first place because “it was only fair.” Hufflepuffs are amazing people and you should consider yourself genuinely lucky to have them in your life. If you yourself are a Hufflepuff, you should be proud- but then, Hufflepuffs are also known for their humility, so you’ll probably just blush and shrug it off.
3)The fewest dark wizards from this house
Say what you want about Hufflepuff. Say that they’re boring duffers, or stupid, or that they have no prospects- whatever you want. At least they’re not evil. In fact, of all the houses, Hufflepuffs are the least likely to turn to the dark side. But there are no dark wizards from Hufflepuff! They’re too busy being awesome people to turn evil.
4)Some Of The COOLEST Witches & Wizards Are Hufflepuffs
Cedric Diggory was a Hufflepuff. While he didn’t win the Tri-Wizard Tournament for highly unfortunate reasons, he was a damn good competitor. He handily defeated his dragon, was the first to bring Cho Chang up from the nymph infested lake, and would have received first place in the cup if he’d survived. He was also a damn good quidditch player.But he wasn’t the only one.Was he?
Nymphadora Tonks, of the Order of the Phoenix, also spent her time at Hogwarts in Hufflepuff- and she’s one of the coolest chicks in the series! Newt Scamander of the new Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is also a Hufflepuff and we’ve still got a lot of movies to learn just how fantastic he is. We haven’t even mentioned Helga Hufflepuff, the founder of the house, nor Professor Pomona Sprout!
5)Hufflepuff Is Kind Of The Party House
Ravenclaw is full of a bunch of nerds, preparing from age eleven for lucrative careers in wizard accounting or some boring but successful career like that. Slytherin is full of treacherous snakes, always plotting and likely to turn evil at the drop of a hat. Gryffindor is filled with bold, rash, impulsive, and typically well-intentioned people that are always looking for a chance to outshine their peers. Hufflepuff? They’re the chill people you actually want to hang out with.
Hufflepuff’s common room is likely consistently stocked with butter beer. It may also have a slightly herbal stench to it, if you catch our drift (they huff and puff, alright).
6)All Hufflepuffs Joined All Gryffindors In The Final Battle Against Voldemort
In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the students of Hogwarts are asked to rise to the occassion and repel the forces of Voldemort and his army in a last stand to save Hogwarts and the safety of the wizarding world. The houses chose as groups what they would do. Hufflepuff was the only other house to decide almost whole-heartedly that they’d stay, and they didn’t do so for pride or glory; they stayed because they knew it was right.
Each houses’ vial contains a different precious gem according to the color of the house. Gryffindor had rubies, Ravenclaw had sapphires, Slytherin had emeralds, and Hufflepuff had diamonds. Out of those options, Hufflepuff sure does sound like the best house!
8)Oof! One of a kind MASCOT.
Gryffindor’s got a lion- yeah, that’s pretty awesome. Slytherin’s got their snake, which seems befitting of such a malicious and creepy house. Ravenclaw has an eagle (not a raven, despite popular assumptions), which fits their regal and lofty demure. Finally, Hufflepuff is represented by a badger. What?Yep!
9)The Common Room Is AMAZING
It’s basically a hobbit hole straight out of Lord of the Rings. With low ceilings, earthy floors and passages, rounded passage ways and walls, and cozy furnishings, you’ll want to spend all of your free time lounging about here. There’s also an abundance of plants and flora all over the common room, which may just seem like a pretty decoration, but actually oxygenates and refreshes the room. Patchwork quilts and black and yellow blankets lie all around the sun soaked dormitories and common room.
Aah! That’s soothing.
10)It’s J. K. Rowling’s Favorite House!
That’s right. Step aside Gryffindor, you’re not everyone’s favorite.
After the creation of Pottermore, when disgruntled users would complain about being sorted into Hufflepuff, J.K. Rowling herself, a self-proclaimed Gryffindor in fact, admitted in interviews that Hufflepuff is indeed her favorite house. “This may surprise people but it is the truth… Gryffindors comprise a lot of foolhardy, show-offy people, that’s just the way it is. There’s bravery and there’s also show-boating. The Hufflepuffs weren’t trying to show off, they weren’t being reckless. That’s the essence of Hufflepuff house.”
So!! These were some of the facts about the most underrated house ever!
