Seven Reasons Ilvermorny Is Better Than Hogwarts
Following the changes that NoMajNet is making, I decided to make a list of seven reasons why Ilvermorny is better than Hogwarts.
1. It’s on a mountain!
Mount Greylock or Bust! The English countryside has nothing on a breathtaking mountain view!
2. Wands stay at school!
No worrying about fighting the temptation of using your wand outside of school on breaks!
3. A No-Maj founded a House!
James Steward was one of the four founders of Ilvermorny. As we all know, James is from a family of No-Majs. Isolt found him in the woods one day and it was love at first sight.
4. The Houses are named after creatures!
Bless Newt’s heart, he would probably love this tidbit! Instead of being named after people (because who likes those, am I right?) the four Houses were named after magical creatures. Which I am sure is preferred by all.
5. You can pick your House!
If more than one House wants you, YOU get to make the decision of where you go! Plus, you don’t have to wear some smelly old hat!!
6) No set expectations!
The Hogwarts Houses have super detailed descriptions as to whom they let in. There is none of that in Ilvermorny! You have a very vague description of what the mascots may favor, but no one knows exactly what they look for!
7. School Unity!!
All of the Houses wear blue and cranberry robes. There is no separating, dividing, or hating by the color that you are wearing under your robes. It’s all the same!
Say good-bye to our Hogwarts Houses! Ilvermorny is here to stay!
