If I was lucky enough to attend the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, I would have been sorted into the Thunderbird House! Just like J.K. Rowling herself!
A fan asked her if she’d reveal her Ilvermorny house for $10, and this was her response.
Donate it to your favourite charity. I'm a Thunderbird. https://t.co/MKXrHFcPQM

Are you a Thunderbird, Wampus, Pukwudgie or a Horned Serpent?
Once you have been sorted, the results will give you a little bit of information on your house. It doesn’t tell much more than physical characteristics and basic personality traits, however.
And many of you have speculated that these houses are similar to the Hogwarts houses, they are not.
There is no equivalence between Hogwarts and Ilvermorny houses, but don't diss Hufflepuff! https://t.co/ey0VdC542f

The interesting thing about the Ilvermorny sorting ceremony is that new students stand around the walls of a circular hall and one by one they stand in the middle of the floor in front of statues of the houses. The statues will react if they want the student in their house: Horned Serpent’ crystal set in its forehead will light up, Wampus will roar, Thunderbird will beat its wings, and Pukwudgie will raise its arrow into the air. If a student is chosen by more than one house, the student chooses their house and very rarely will a student will be chosen by all four houses.
What House did you get sorted into?
