A first year Ravenclaw nervously approaches a Prefect and tugs on their sleeve.
Prefect: Hmmm? What’s up?
First Year: I was just wondering…..do the teachers expect me to get perfect grades because I’m in Ravenclaw?? If they do I’m in the wrong house because my grades have never been good!!! *on verge of tears*
First Year: …..*wait’s expectantly* 0^0
Prefect: *laughs loudly* If that were true most of Ravenclaw would be in the wrong house!
First Year: Ehhhhh?! @~@
Prefect: The Ravenclaw house boasts the BEST and WORST grades in the entire school. At LEAST half the house has trouble passing their classes.
First Year: But why?…. I don’t understand, isn’t Ravenclaw supposed to be for people who are good at school and stuff??
Prefect: Not quite. Ravenclaw values knowledge and as whole… there is nothing that is not worthy of being learned. However, we tend to be… picky… about what we learn. For many Ravenclaws, the desire for knowledge only extends into their areas of interest.
First Year: So they only want to learn about stuff they like?
Prefect: That’s right, and if they don’t care about a subject they don’t even attempt to learn it. It’s the reason Ravenclaw produces more “Specialists” than any other house. So don’t worry about your grades too much and just learn… in whatever way works best for you.
First Year: Hehehe… Is it really ok for you to be telling me not to care about my grades? ^7^
Prefect: Probably not, but you have all year to figure out your grades… Now begone with you! *shoos away* I have a wizard chess match to win.
An adorable piece from inuneechan that reminds us that the few words given to us to describe the Houses only scratch at the surface. Thank you for this glimpse into Ravenclaw House!
