Viele Leute sagen, dass Slytherins und Gryffindors zwei Seiten der selben Medaille sind.
A lot of people say that Slytherins and Gryffindors represent two sides of the same coin.Gryffindor, SlytherinJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
Wir sind keine schlechten Menschen. Wir sind wie unser Emblem, die Schlange: geschickt, stark und häufig missverstanden.
But we're not bad people. We're like our emblem, the snake: sleek, powerful, and frequently misunderstood.Slytherin, SchlangenJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
Speaking of eccentrics, you'll like our Head of house, Professor Filius Flitwick. People often underestimate him, because he's really tiny (we think he's part elf, but we've never been rude enough to ask) and he's got a squeaky voice, but he's the best and most knowledgeable Charms master alive in the world today. His office door is always open to any Ravenclaw with a problem, and if you're in a real state he'll get out these delicious little cupcakes he keeps in a tin in his desk drawer and make them do a little dance for you. In fact, it's worth pretending you're in a real state just to see them jive.Joanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World, über Professor Flitwick

Unser Emblem ist der Adler, der weiter steigt, wo andere nicht mithalten; unsere Hausfarben sind Blau und Bronze und unser Gemeinschaftsraum befindet sich an der Spitze des Ravenclaw Turms, hinter einer Tür mit einem verzauberten Türklopfer. Durch die großen Fenster des runden Gemeinschaftsraums kann man auf das Schulgelände herab schauen: den See, den Verbotenen Wald, das Quidditch Feld und die Gewächshäuser. Kein anderes Haus hat so einen unglaublichen Ausblick.
Our emblem is the eagle, which soars where others cannot climb; our house colours are blue and bronze, and our common room is found at the top of Ravenclaw Tower, behind a door with an enchanted knocker. The arched windows set into the walls of our circular common room look down at the school grounds: the lake, the Forbidden Forest, the Quidditch pitch and the Herbology gardens. No other house in the school has such stunning views.RavenclawJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
Unser Emblem ist der Löwe, die mutigste aller Kreaturen; unsere Hausfarben sind Scharlach und Gold, und unser Gemeinschaftsraum befindet sich oben im Gryffindor Turm.
Our emblem is the lion, the bravest of all creatures; our house colours are scarlet and gold, and our common room lies up in Gryffindor Tower.GryffindorJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
Unser Emblem ist der Dachs, ein Tier, das häufig unterschätzt wird, weil es zurückhaltend ist, aber sich, wenn es angegriffen wird, gegen viel größere Tiere verteidigen kann, sogar Wölfe. Unsere Hausfarben sind Gelb und Schwarz, und unser Gemeinschaftsraum befindet sich im selben Korridor wie die Schulküchen.
Our emblem is the badger, an animal that is often underestimated, because it lives quietly until attacked, but which, when provoked, can fight off animals much larger than itself, including wolves. Our house colours are yellow and black, and our common room lies one floor below the ground, on the same corridor as the kitchens.HufflepuffJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
Another cool thing about Ravenclaw is that our people are the most individual – some might even call them eccentrics. But geniuses are often out of step with ordinary folk, and unlike some other houses we could mention, we think you've got the right to wear what you like, believe what you want, and say what you feel. We aren't put off by people who march to a different tune; on the contrary, we value them!RavenclawJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
Ravenclaws are famous for clambering over each other to get good marks.RavenclawJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
Unser Emblem ist die Schlange, die klügste aller Kreaturen; unsere Hausfarben sind Smaragdgrün und Silber, und unser Gemeinschaftsraum befindet sich hinter einem versteckten Eingang in den Kerkern. Durch seine Fenster schaut man hinaus in die Tiefen des Sees.
Our emblem is the serpent, the wisest of creatures; our house colours are emerald green and silver, and our common room lies behind a concealed entrance down in the dungeons. As you'll see, its windows look out into the depths of the Hogwarts lake.Slytherin, SchlangenJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
Niemand kann sagen, dass Hufflepuffs keine netten Menschen sind. Tatsächlich gehören sie zu den nettesten der Schule.
As for the Hufflepuffs, well, nobody could say they're not nice people. In fact, they're some of the nicest people in the school.HufflepuffJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World

Now, there are a few things you should know about Hufflepuff house. First of all, let's deal with a perennial myth about the place, which is that we're the least clever house. WRONG. Hufflepuff is certainly the least boastful house, but we've produced just as many brilliant witches and wizards as any other.HufflepuffJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
A portrait over the wooden mantelpiece shows Helga Hufflepuff, one of the four founders of Hogwarts School, toasting her students with a tiny, two-handled golden cup.HufflepuffJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
The entrance to the common room is concealed in a stack of large barrels in a nook on the right hand side of the kitchen corridor. Tap the barrel two from the bottom, middle of the second row, in the rhythm of "Helga Hufflepuff", and the lid will swing open. We are the only house at Hogwarts that also has a repelling device for would-be intruders. If the wrong lid is tapped, or if the rhythm of the tapping is wrong, the illegal entrant is doused in vinegar.HufflepuffJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
Hufflepuff house is haunted by the Fat Friar, who was executed because senior churchmen grew suspicious of his ability to cure the pox merely by poking peasants with a stick, and his ill-advised habit of pulling rabbits out of the communion cup. Though a genial character in general, the Fat Friar still resents the fact that he was never made a cardinal.HufflepuffJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
Wenn ich etwas kritisieren müsste, würde ich sagen, dass Gryffindors Angeber sind.

Gryffindor house is home to Nearly Headless Nick, who in life was Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington. Something of a snob, and a less accomplished wizard than he believed, Sir Nicholas lounged around the court of Henry VII in life, until his foolish attempt to beautify a lady-in-waiting by magic caused the unfortunate woman to sprout tusks. Sir Nicholas was stripped of his wand and inexpertly executed, leaving his head hanging off by a single flap of skin and sinew. He retains a feeling of inadequacy with regard to truly headless ghosts.GryffindorJoanne K. Rowling in Wizarding World
