I always wondered if the sorting hat tried to even out the first years by houses, or did the true character of the kid outweighed a the need for balance. I mean there are only so many beds in each dormitory.

Ya, what if 90% of the kids in one year were all Ravenclaws. It would really mess things up.


I love that observation about how odd it was for McGonagal to be wearing green robes! Nice discussion about the extra ghosts. I thought that poltergeists can have contact with physical objects (like Peeves and the walking sticks). I remember that Hermione mentioned that the Sorting Hat talked about going to Ravenclaw.

I really love the Pottermore behind the scenes info. I never got into that site. Maybe one day I will.

I completely forgot the school song was a thing. I love Martha’s story about reciting it with a fellow super-fan.
