If we're on the topic of the house mascots... Ravenclaws... Gryffindors... People are talking about why the Ravenclaw animal isn't a raven, but NO ONE notices that the Hufflepuff animal is a freaking badger? It's not Badgerpuff. I mean yes, the badger might represent the characteristics of their house. But what about the damn Huffles? (I'm pretty sure the name of the house founder wasn't the be all, end all on what the mascot was haha)
hahahaha see no one was even thinking this far ahead…
(In response to you and the Anon wondering why Ravenclaw isn't a Raven) The animal for Ravenclaw isn't a Raven because Ravens, though viewed as intelligent are often seen as omens of ill fortune. The Eagle is a much more appropriate symbol for the house as it's seen as a symbol of wisdom and learning, and is actually related to the Raven, which is more often viewed as having a cunning intelligence and is really more appropriate for the Slytherin House.
I like the eagle as the crest for ravenclaw, I think its a beautiful animal to represent the ravenclaws. The eagle itself has skill, vision, and inspiration like many in the house. In addition to this, the eagle was historically a symbol given to those of ingenuity and distinction. I think if the crest is beautiful with the raven or with the eagle and im just proud to be a ravenclaw and being a ravenclaw has much more meaning then just what the crest looks like.
I don't know why people are weird about the Ravenclaw animal being an eagle. Gryffindors isn't a Griffin. I don't know.... just because her name was Ravenclaw, dosen't mean the animal has to be. It upsets me that the films changed it to raven, and the colours. It upsets me even more when people say it SHOULD be a raven.
nothing shouldbe anything…it’s JK’s world and we’re just living in it…
good point about Gryffindor!
let’s not get started on a list of things that are upsetting about the films..
