Hogwarts House Sorting
Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated


Welcome to housesorting! This is a livejournal community based off of the Sorting that occurs in the Harry Potter series. In this community you will fill out an application and get sorted into one of the four houses at Hogwarts (Gryffindor, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff).

Once you have posted your application, people will start commenting leaving their opinion on which house you belong in. After you recieve one comment from someone, you're allowed to comment on other entries and state which house you think other people belong in. In a few days the final decision will be made and you'll get stamped into a house. Once you're sorted into your house you can interact with other memembers in your house, earn house points and comepete for the house cup!
