It gets me all tingly inside.Avatar ImageAstoria Lane says: I love Alex's songs he always has a catchy way of saying what all of us are feeling!! Especially with Pottermore.. I always saw myself as a Hermione type character with smarts but with bravery too and thought always that I would be in Gryffindor but would if I'm sorted into Hufflepuff or even Ravenclaw? I doubt I would be in Slytherin but my fiance would haha!! I guess we will see when I get my chance to Beta test!! Hope it comes before the end of September!

Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: I would definitely freak out if I was put in the wrong house. I'm a Ravenclaw (even though I'm a Gryffindor on here). If I was in any other house I would be so mad. and those pictures are hilarious!Avatar ImageMudblood_and_proud says: YAY! they chose my pictures!!!!!! i sent them ages ago and forgot all about them!!!!! this is such a lovely surprise sitting in a boring class!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU LEAKY!!!!!!!!!!!! LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagejustfollow says: That vid was hilarious. xD I TOTALLY GOT SORTED IN THE WRONG HOUSE. I always thought I was Gryffindor, but apparently I'm Slytherin. >__> LOL.Avatar Imagegracieg18 says: oh my wizard god! i'm in alex's pottermore video! i'm the one holding the not hufflepuff sign :)Avatar Imagechikitcorpuzvesterbaek says: Thanks for brightening up my dreary, rainy day. Specially LOVE the Leaky cauldron type of person!Avatar ImageLexitheAuror says: That song definitely describes what I've been feeling this past week. And tonight got sorted! Into Hufflepuff! I knew I'd either be Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff, but I was still surprised. I was expecting to answer more questions when all of a sudden "Hufflepuff!" showed up on the screen in big letters. It doesn't mean I'm not smart, only that I'm modest about it.Avatar Imagetom legolas says: lol that last one is soo funny >_< soo awesome!!!Avatar Imageshanerbaner says: What if Pottermore DID sort me in the wrong house!? I'm SO having the worst week ever! There is no way that I'm Hufflepuff!!! I think that they are just putting people in the [nasty honey]badger house because no one would actually want that. I'm making a new account in October if they won't let me change.Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: lol that last one is soo funny >_< soo awesome!!!Avatar Imagetrip_le_threat says: Ha! I for sure saw all of that when I went to see Hp7. lolsAvatar Imagelpierich says: I was at leakycon when I saw it the first time so they all where the last one! The one gril started cry and just could not stop. It was so funny.Avatar ImageGarnetGirl says: My best friend was totally the first year student. I took her to Hp7 p2 midnight premiere and she converted.Avatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: I went and saw the movie again yesterday and had a "Leaky Cauldron" sitting in back of me -- LOL! I guess I am a splogger --but I don't know what that is!!!! Thanks for the laugh!Avatar Imageweasleywannabe1997 says: OMG I am so *not* a splogger! Just looked it up., Thought it meant an older blogger or fan...ARGH! Too funny! Avatar Imagehonigmuffin says: … am I the only one who immediately thought of Kat Rosenfield's SparkNotes slideshow when reading the title? And then I scrolled down and saw that it IS her slideshow. The pictures were drawn and titled by her. I just think the credit should go to the creator, not the person who sent in the pictures without mentioning where she got them from.Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Where's the sixth type? I only see five. I too had to look up 'splogger,' and I still don't understand why it's being applied to the picture of people like me who seem 'too old to be a Potter nerd.'Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Cute song. But if the Singing Crones had written it, you can bet that all the verses would have actually rhymed.Avatar ImageAceba says: hahahaha!!!! I think I'm sort of the Leaky Cauldron, especially during the last movie. :0)Avatar ImageRavenclaw98 says: Will leaky have a thing were we can change our houses if we do get a differnt one on pottermore? I feel very conflicted and scared.Avatar ImageAnaconda Beastie says: Firts... I'm definitely The Leaky Cauldron Tipe XD I was already crying and i wasn't even in the cinema yet, crying in the waiting time, that's awesome!! hahaha XD then I had to stand the stupid "The Smurf" 's trailer D: hahaha Second... I love Alex... of course haha And, yeah i've been thinking about being sort in the wrong house. The worst thing is that... it suppose that the question come from JK Rowling herself... so if you get sorted in the wrong house, it'd be kind of the real thing, no?? D: I wonder if I can talk to the Sorting hat and tell him "Not Slytherin, not Slytherin >.<" hahahahahhaAvatar Imagehonigmuffin says: @WeenyOwl, here's the original slideshow: … also, in this case, a Splogger is a SparkNotes blogger. The entry at refers to something different.Avatar Imagejyassa says: wow thats so good!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Har-Har!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Har Har Har...Avatar ImageEmmaline10248 says: lol i love the pics but ugh pottermore is driving me crazy!!!Avatar Imageglow_freak says: He's put all our fears to music! I don't want to be in Hufflepuff!Avatar Imagecamila_black08 says: Yeah, I was just like The Leaky Cauldron one. But,really, the logo part is exciting. And there were A LOT of people like the second First Year Student.Avatar Imagecamila_black08 says: And I loved the music!!!!Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: I love them all! I'm definetely The Leaky Cauldron :) I would be happy to get in any house! Don't go dissing on Hufflepuff because I'm Ravenpuff and I'm proud of it! But I SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO WANT TO BE IN RAVENCLAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope Jo doesn't fail!Avatar ImageKessalia19 says: lol I'm a mix of the last 2 types. And as far as my house-- EVERY decent quiz I've taken sorted me into Hufflepuff. (maybe 2-3 put me in Ravenclaw) pfft. I'm a proud 'Puff! Oh and ShanerBaner ~ THAT NASTY HONEY BADGER WILL -FIND- YOU!Avatar Imagealexweasley12 says: ROFL !! LOLOLOLOLOL !!!!!!!!!! THIS WAS SOOO FUNNY !!Avatar Imagemolly43 says: That song by Alex (which by the way was beautifully sung) relayed my fears. I picked Gryffindor for my house on Leaky Cauldron, but I think I may be in Hufflepuff on the Pottermore site. It's crazy but the song actually brought tears to my eyes. I loved the video though. also I looked up “splogger” and it means someone who copies someone else’s blog posts and calls it his own.Avatar ImageTylerg1 says: I am definitley the last one of those pictures. and I dont think anyone wants to be hufflepuff. I am either a Gryffindor or Slytherin, but if i somehow get sorted into ravenclaw, i wouldnt really mindAvatar ImageHoggyWartyHogwarts says: I was definitely the last type: The Leaky Cauldron.Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: I am pround to say that last picture is exactly how I was when the movie started. Lol, and throught the entire, wonderful thing, a sob mess! :D Avatar ImageViccy6 says: Haha, I am so that last picture! And loved the video <3Avatar Imageizziewitch says: Too bad Pottermore won't be able to follow what Harry told his son, that the Sorting hat takes your preferences into consideration. It would be horrible to be sorted into a house you thought you were totally unsuited for (I'm thinking Slytherin).Avatar ImageRadiance says: Love the pics from Sparknotes, and LOVE that song. Dear God, it's what I've been thinking about all week. D:Avatar ImageRadiance says: PS: Splogger is what they call "Sparknotes bloggers" on Sparknotes, haha~Avatar Imagenickyh says: i say a leaky cauldron when i went to the cinema... IT WAS ME!!! i cried all the time!! i just couldn't stop!! hahahhaAvatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: Thanks Leaky :) I'm not even remotely ashamed to admit that I'm the last picture! :D I.Was.A.Sobbing.Mess. I'm a tiny bit scared about what house I'll be sorted into, I think I have more qualities of a Gryffindor than any other house. As long as I'm not a Slytherin then I'll be happy whatever house they put me in. I just want my welcome email WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA.Avatar Imagewandmastercalum says: I wouldn't mind if I wasn't sorted into Ravenclaw because either way I'm finding out more about the Harry Potter world either way.Avatar Image1HarryPotterFan123 says: Ha ha ha!!!! HILARIOUS!!!!!!! I'm definately a Leaky Cauldron, although I didn't actually cry when the WB logo came on XD those were hilarious!!! And I lovveeedd the song!!!! Avatar ImageAmberMV says: I got my house! Add me :) HeartShadow95Avatar ImageLaserschwert says: HAHAHAHA I was definitely "The Leaky Cauldron" XD i also cried whenever snape had a part!Avatar Imagejacket says: We had a leaky cauldron in our theater at midnight! They were bauling their eyes out! Anyways, I love fun fridays! I hope they keep happening!Avatar Imagemoonstone nox says: great song... I hope I receive my mail soon ... but I'm terrified to be sorted ... in the wrong house!!! Never thought the 'sorting ceremony' would scare me that much!!!! OMG, did Harry feel this way all those years ago?Avatar ImageKittyVD says: Haha, I could use this laugh (after what happened in Belgium... :() thx Avatar Imageselenialovegood says: This is awesome!! I love Alex, he is awesome!!! I'm so going to sing this song all the time when school starts!! I love his voice!Avatar ImageRonWeasleyIsHot says: HAHA this is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! I can't stop laughing!!!!!Avatar ImageCocoaPuffs1580 says: I CAN'T WAIT FOR MY POTTERMORE WELCOME EMAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope it comes before the end of September. I think I'll be in Ravenclaw. Avatar ImageWeasleyWonder says: I love the pics! I laughed histerically at the last one, that is so me! The song is totally awesome too!Avatar ImageGarnetGirl says: My sister "forgot" to tell me about the Magic Quill until the very last days. And I couldn't get in. Now I have to wait until October with all the normal Harry Potter fans. I am not a normal Harry Potter fan!!! Anything's cool with me for the sorting. Except HUFFLEPUFF!!! *shivers at thought* Not Hufflepuff! NOT HUFFLEPUFF!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageXaviri78 says: im the leaky cauldron =.(Avatar ImageXaviri78 says: im the leaky cauldron =.(Avatar Imagexpj2000 says: lol,rofl,lmaoAvatar ImageDavidTheUnready says: Evanna Lynch just got sorted in pottermore, and it wasn't Ravenclaw... worrying times ahead...Avatar Imagehewy says: That song is so clever! Evonna Lynch (Luna) got sorted got sorted into Gryffindor according to Pottermore - so we must be on the look out and hope it gets us into the right house. Still anxiously awaiting my e-mail invite.Avatar ImageKatnordy5 says: Great song! All the houses have good points you know! I haven't been able to go onto Pottermore yet although I was magical but I am still waiting for my time to enter the website. Avatar Imagefriendofblob says: That's creepy, I've been having the very same fear! o.oAvatar Imagebudgie says: I will always be a first year student.Avatar Imagevespasian68967 says: Alex's song was great. I'm hoping for Hufflepuff, but Ravenclaw wouldn't be too bad. I could probably even live with Slytherin, but Gryffindor? I think I'd just leave, wouldn't you? ;)Avatar ImageWeasleyisourking99 says: Oh, I can't wait for my Pottermore owl! I got in late, so I probably won't get it for ages, but still!Avatar ImageMoonlitFox says: lol,Great song! Avatar ImageExpectoPatronum512 says: Loved these so much XDAvatar Imagecerizesicat says: omaygoood. hahahahaAvatar Imagegirlatty1 says: I think it's a real problem. I look bad in green.Avatar ImageAshBirdie says: I love the song! :)Avatar Imagejedisakora says: I love that song. ^^ I think that pretty is much one every ones mind. I want Gryffindor (says all of my Gryffindor stuff), but i'd be happy with Ravenclaw. ^^Avatar Imagehandhrfan18 says: i gotta say i love the last cartoon. i was the same way and my friend acted the same way like sayin it is just the WB logo XDDD. oooh memories <3. i also loved the song and it made my day even brighter! :D, hopefully i get sorted into the house i deserve :3Avatar Imagemencia says: I would sooooooooo freak out if I end up in slytherin, any of the other three would be ok with me but pleaaaaaaaaaasssssseeeee NOT SLYTHERIN!Avatar Imagemoglet says: What's with all this anti-Hufflepuff attitude? For goodness sake, whatever we're sorted into we'll have fun on Pottermore, and by the way Hufflepuffs can be clever and brave but we don't value bravery or cleverness as the most important qualities of a person. And remember Tonks was a Hufflepuff, among her other qualities she was brave and clever or she couldn't have become an auror.Avatar Imagekiwimci says: I'm having the same freak out. Not Slytherin, not slytherin, not slytherin. Please please Ravenclaw of Gryffindor!Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: @Moglet, and what about Cedric Diggory, also in Hufflepuff, who was brave, handsome and decent - and good at magic too? @mencia, @KiwiMcl, I hope we're not forgetting about the Bravest Man We Ever Knew, who was a Slytherin, and also loyal, clever and loving (though he hid that part quite well). Don't you think it might be fun to have a persona that's a bit different from your everyday one?Avatar Imagemencia says: @ Valeria-Johanna Snape is a unique case, Voldemort was slytherin, it gives me the creeps to think I might end up in the same house as him. like I said I won't mind being in Gryffindor, Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw, anyone of those will make me happy just NOT SLYTHERINAvatar Imagemoglet says: Tonk's mum was a Slytherin, and she's a good person, and Regulus Black was a Slytherin who gave his own life to help defeat Voldemort and Slughorn is also a Slytherin, he might be somewhat self serving but he's not a bad person, so if I happen to end up as a Slytherin I really won't get upset. I'd hope to be a Hufflepuff as I think that's right for me, but I won't lose any sleep over it if I'm not. Avatar ImageKittyVD says: More Welcome Emails have been send out. Still not me!! :'( Why did I register on the 2nd day, so not fair... :(Avatar ImageLily Evans30 says: Not Slytherin Not Slytherin Avatar ImageLily Evans30 says: I'm a Gryffindor... I hope :'( Avatar ImageOxie says: Well said, moglet. I believe I'm a Hufflepuff but got sorted into Ravenclaw. Maybe I should get a blue and canary yellow scarf. :)Avatar ImageLinaHP says: I want to get on Pottermore so badly :( I'm still waiting for my email :( And I would like to be sorted to Gryffindor or Ravenclaw:) Fingers crossed! Good luck everyone on your sortings. I hope you will all be where you want to be :)Avatar ImageG.Weasley says: I LOVE the song!!!!!!! I really hope i get sorted into Gryffindor!!! i'm nervous..........but i want my welcome e-mail!!!!!!!Avatar Imagesunny2017 says: I loved the song!!!Avatar ImageFelisAmoris says: I went to the midnight showing, but weirdly enough, there were NO leaky's :( I felt like I was the only one sobbing through the whole movie! I took my friend and boyfriend with me, but they were only there because of me. I feel so looonely, it's like everyone that used to be a Potterhead like I am, has moved on!Avatar ImagePaitrix says: lol! i luved those pics....xD they were just sooo true!! o.0Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: Now I'm worried..Avatar Imagemencia says: anyone know when the next batch of emails will be out?Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Hahaha!
