View Full Version : OT - Harry Potter Fans

I just found the perfect valentine gift for my DH. :inlove:

Alivan's is selling "Red Hot Cauldrons of Love" - this is a new offering by them. It's pretty cool - a cauldron full of HP candy and either a scarf or a wand.

I'm probably going with the wand because I want to make the scarf myself.
(He's a Ravenclaw, I'm a Gryffindor...)

Any other Potter fans have cross-house romances? ;)

It is far more complicated in our house. I am a Gryffindor, hubby is a Ravenclaw and son is a Hufflepuff.

Not sure... My husband and I haven't been sorted just yet... but I bet we are in seperate houses!

We are huge HP fans in this house (especially me ;) )
That "Cauldron of Love" sounds great!
By the way, I'm a Hufflepuff, my daughter (eight) is a Gryffindor, and my husband is a ...
Slytherin (seriously!) :lol:

Here's a great place to get sorted (http://sorting-hat.com/sorthat.htm), Dannah!

I think my father was a Gryffindor as well, but my sister is a Ravenclaw. Didn't bother with mum, she's a muggle. :rollseyes:

I'm pretty sure my MIL is a Hufflepuff. She's sweet and loves to bake - I've learned tons from her.

Well it's official...

I'm a Gryffindor! :happydance:

Is the HP candy those awful jelly beans of every flavor? Have you actually TRIED those? They are sooooooo nasty.

I am a Ravenclaw. Not sure about DH and the kids (DH is not an HP fan and the kids are too small to sort yet). Must make myself a scarf sometime.

I'm a Ravenclaw and DH is a Gryffindor. Oh scandelous!

I'm a weirdo. I actually like the Bertie Botts beans. Sardine is my favorite flavor! Grass had a piquant flavor suitable for after dinner.

The fizzing whizbees are nothing like the book, however, and were a real disappointment. It's just pop rocks with a fancy package.

I can't wait to try the ice mice. mmmm. tasty rodents....

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! To my surprise, I'm a Griffyndor. I would've thought Ravenclaw. DH is Ravenclaw. Yes, it is scandalous!

Well my DD and I went to see GOF the day it came out...tomorrow I"m taking Mom to see it! :happydance:

Well, I've sorted as a Gryffindor. My husband never has been sorted officially, but his favorite character is Snape, so I'm figuring he has Slytherin leanings :thinking:

Well I am a Gryffindor and my husband is a Hufflepuff! So we are a cross house family!

01-21-2006, 04:03 PM
My husband and I are Ravenclaws! Yes, both of us. I took the test first, and then my husband did with me looking over his shoulder, and the only question that we answered differently was our favorite class... I said charms and he was transfiguration (which was the first one I chose and then changed to charms!)

SO is a Gryffindor, while I'm a Ravenclaw. :D Cross house romances are awesome. :D
