Let’s Hope Hogwarts Doesn’t Have Facebook: Social Advice From Every House

Some representatives from each house of Hogwarts — Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, and Hufflepuff — are here to answer your burning questions on how to best conduct yourself around others! Some are really looking out for you, and some are looking to amuse themselves. Some are overthinking it completely, and some have not yet discovered how to think. But they are really, really good at Quidditch! They’re great at it! And here is the fun part: they are still available to take your questions! Send an email to the makers of this video, Not Literally Productions, and ask them your questions: not [dot] literally [dot] productions [at] gmail [dot] com.

    While completely hilarious, I do have to say I’m a little over the “Hufflepuff is the house for failures” thing. Don’t get me wrong, I love the video- but the house stereotypes (Hufflepuff = pathetic, Slytherin = evil) thing annoys me. The Slytherin girl was great though!

    I always thought of Hufflepuff as the “good with people” house.  You know, loyal, friendly… If anything, they would be the ones who *should* be writing an advice column.  That was the only thing that irked me about this video.  (Otherwise it was awesome.)

    Puts on Harry Potter Wizard’s cap: People kind of constantly get the general idea about the Houses wrong. While I see a bit of the Gryffindor in the Gryffindor advice, it isn’t really spot on. Slytherin was better and I enjoyed the Ravenclaw ones. Didn’t like the Hufflepuff interpretation, though. They’re not tongue-tied cowards. In fact, the only other Hufflepuffs that were ever given the time-of-day in the books were pretty much kick-ass: a Tri-Wizards champion (who happened to be a heartthrob–even before Pattinson personified him) and a morphmagi auror who married a werewolf (and sired his child).

    In any case, it’s cute.

    I can’t enjoy something that people think it is alright to insult Hufflepuffs.

    As a former Harry Potter fan (I’ve been disconnected from the magic community, I guess), I have to say its sad how the fandom has turned from innocent fanfics to dating counseling jiberish.  I’d have to say that I’m sick of the stereotyped Hufflepuff nerd and the Slytherin bitch.  

    Furthermore, I would strongly recommend not to watch the other videos from the “Not Literally” channel (if you are, by all means, a raised Harry Potter fan), since you’ll find that not only does this turn from the innocent wizard story we were raised to into a “girl thing”, but the values and book’s morale changes significantly (basically teaching you not to get wasted in a Hogwart’s party and wake up with a Hufflepuff next to you.  You definitely don’t want THAT to happen.) 

    What I’m trying to say is that its pretty sad to see how they’ve changed the book’s meaning into a college dream (filled with booze and afterparty sex). Is there a reason to why we thoroughly try to blend the misleading Kesha with the valuable lessons of Harry Potter?  Is that the kind of role model we want kids these days to grow up to?

    A “girl thing”? You say that like it’s a bad thing.

    I love Harry Potter and grew up with it, but people relate to stories in different ways. I agree that the original material should be read before indulging yourself in the other stuff online, but I hardly think that the new interpretations of the book by various fandoms ruins the experience. 

    And have you *read* HP fanfics?  I would hardly call many of them, especially the ones I personally like, as “innocent”.
