I’m HawthornWild12691, if anyone wants to connect there. My wand is ebony, 11 inches, with phoenix feather, supple. And I’m in Hufflepuff. And I couldn’t be happier with either of those, I didn’t even have to lie about anything (I’m kind of Gryfflepuff anyway by temperament, so I wasn’t sure which one I’d get). :-) I have a black cat, too. It’s really cool to finally find out about the Hufflepuff common room, which is the only one you don’t see in the main series. It will be interesting to find out if there’s any more Hufflepuff information in this thing, because you really didn’t hear much about them at all in the books. And they sounded so interesting.
