The Daily Harry Potter

The Great Hall of Hogwarts was a sight to behold. The enchanted ceiling reflected the night sky, with stars twinkling and the moon casting a soft glow over the long tables where the students of Hogwarts sat, chattering excitedly. At the front of the hall, the Sorting Hat perched atop a stool, its brim folded in a knowing smile.

I, along with my fellow first-years, stood nervously at the front of the hall. The Sorting Ceremony was a rite of passage for all Hogwarts students, a moment where we would discover which house we would call home for the next seven years. The four houses – Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin – were legendary, each with their own distinct traits and characteristics.

As the Sorting Hat began to sing its annual song, a sense of anticipation filled the air. The hat’s voice was deep and melodious, echoing through the hall. It sang of bravery and loyalty, of intelligence and cunning, of hard work and patience, and of ambition and resourcefulness. Each word seemed to resonate with me, making me wonder which house I would be sorted into.

Finally, the Sorting Hat finished its song and the sorting began. One by one, my fellow first-years were called up to the stool. The hat was placed on their heads, and after a moment’s pause, it would call out their house. The hall would erupt into cheers as each student was sorted, the Gryffindors cheering the loudest for their own.

Then it was my turn. I walked up to the stool, my heart pounding in my chest. The Sorting Hat was placed on my head, and I felt a strange sensation as it seemed to peer into my soul. It whispered to me, speaking of my traits and characteristics, trying to decide where I belonged.

“You are brave,” it said, “and loyal. You value friendship and camaraderie. But you are also ambitious, and you have a sharp mind. You are a hard worker, and you value patience and persistence. You have the traits of a Gryffindor, but also those of a Slytherin.”

I held my breath, waiting for the Sorting Hat to make its decision. After what seemed like an eternity, it finally spoke.

“Slytherin!” it announced.

There was a moment of silence, followed by a loud cheer from the Slytherin table. I walked over to my new house, feeling a sense of belonging and acceptance. I was a Slytherin, and I was proud.

As I sat down at the Slytherin table, I looked around at my new house. They were a diverse group, but they all shared a common trait – ambition. And I knew that I would fit right in.

In the Great Hall of Hogwarts, I had been sorted into my house. It was a moment I would never forget, a moment that would shape the rest of my time at Hogwarts. I was a Slytherin, and I was ready to embrace all that it meant.
