My quiz isn't perfect, so you might not like your result, but please comment and tell me which house you were placed in!
Professor McGonagall appears beside you, "Come, come, we haven't got all evening," She manages to push you through the gigantic wooden doors into the Great Hall, even though you're frozen with fear.
Seemingly hundreds of students are seated at four tables. While you and the other first years are walking up to the front, they begin singing a song...
You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;
Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;
Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.
As you stand in a line with the other students in the hall, you glance up at the ceiling. It seems to be made of glass; you stare in awe at the galaxies and stars which shelter you. Losing yourself in the beautiful surroundings of the night sky, floating candles and numerous delightful banners, you don't notice the first student stepping forwards to be sorted.
"[Your name]!" Professor McGonagall shouts for the second time, "Please come up to the podium!"
You snap out of your daydreaming and cringe with embarrassment, seeing that all the students are staring at you. You run up to stand beside the Professor and look at her, awaiting further instruction.
"Now, as it had an unfortunate boxing match with Peeves, the Sorting Hat is currently unfit to attend." McGonagall looks down at you, explaining the situation, "Instead, I will ask you a series of questions. Your answers will determine which house you are placed in."
You force an excited smile, though your stomach feels like it's so full of butterflies that it's going to implode!
"Question one," She begins...

Professor McGonagall smiles down at you, "Very good. You're finished."
"What... what house am I in?" You ask nervously, your voice shaking.

Professor McGonagall gently places her hand on your back and turns you around so that you're facing the whole school. You feel the eyes of all your future classmates on you. But it doesn't frighten you, these people will become you friends. Hogwarts will become your home.
The galaxies and stars beam down on you as the Professor addresses not only you, but everyone, "Let me introduce, [Your name], the newest addition to [Your house]!"
The school erupts with applause, mainly from your house, and it echoes for at least a minute. The Professor pushes you slightly forward and you proudly go and sit down at your house's table, being swamped by handshakes and claps on the back.
You know you're going to enjoy yourself here.
