SO I FINALLY MY POTTERMORE OWL AND OMG I GOT SORTED AND OMG I'M IN GRYFFINDOR.
To quote my fellow Ravenclaw-turned-Gryffindor Housemate, Evanna Lynch (who plays the lovely Luna Lovegood in the HP films):
hhhh umm errrrrr.... Just got sorted. Slight identity crisis. Need to sit down and process this... #pottermore
I'm in Gryffindor. #Pottermore #confusion #shock #pride #happiness
I don't know what to do. I feel like Jo just told me I'm a man. I'm SO utterly confused.
Gryffindor! Woahhh what an honour! I'm so happy! But confused! But happy! BUT CONFUSED. #Pottermore #farewellravenclaw
Dammit, now I have to change my whole bleedin' wardrobe!!! #pottermore #butredandgoldarenotmycolours
But you know what, the idea is warming up to me, and after all, JK Rowling wrote the questions herself so it is the most accurate test out there. I suppose this is what it feels like if you grew up in the Wizarding World with a predetermined notion of what House you'd belong to (like Draco) only to find out you're something else. Anyway, Hermione and the Weasley twins were in Gryffindor, so hey, you can be intelligent and creative and still be a Gryff! So yeah...
Add me! I'm ShadowCastle9. If you do so, kindly indicate your username first in the comments section, otherwise I won't accept you since you might be some rapist (sorry).

Been meaning to do 2 things for a while now:
1) Update my devID to reflect my new haircut and color (dyed my hair brown for the first time!)
2) Draw myself with a goose for once, since that's my username after all!
Coming from my Harry Potter high (just finished rereading books 1-3!), I ingeniously decided to kill 2 birds with one stone: Presenting to you my new devID featuring my new 'do and Goose Patronus!
So I thought about it, and realized that Art truly makes me happy, it's what I produce it to make my loved ones happy, it's my stress-reliever, it gives me a sense of personal satisfaction, and it inspires me to keep learning and strive to be better. My artist persona is, as you all know, blastedgoose; thus, the Goose, which represents my art, is my ideal Patronus, the symbol for hope and happiness in my life.
Let's not forget my love for Disney of course! Probably too small to tell here, but I'm wearing my trusty Mickey Mouse watch and Mickey-printed Vans (both real!). Close-ups here: [link]
Patronus loosely based on this awesome tutorial: [link]
Here is a version that closes-up on just myself (vain! hehe) -- you can see the details better! [link]
