   Ilvermorny origins and houses revealed!0 Comments

J. K. Rowling has updated Pottermore with new information about the great North American school of magic, Ilvermorny.


Its creation:


  Accio Quote:
The great North American school of magic was founded in the seventeenth century. It stands at the highest peak of Mount Greylock, where it is concealed from non-magic gaze by a variety of powerful enchantments, which sometimes manifest in a wreath of misty cloud.



Founded by an Irish witch:


  Accio Quote:
Isolt Sayre was born around 1603 and spent her earliest childhood in the valley of Coomloughra, County Kerry, in Ireland. She was the offspring of two pure-blood wizarding families.



Names of the four houses:


  Accio Quote:
Horned Serpent – a ‘great horned river serpent with a jewel set into its forehead’

Pukwudgie – ‘a short, grey-faced, large-eared creature’

Thunderbird – a creature that ‘can create storms as it flies’

Wampus – ‘a magical, panther-like creature that is fast, strong and almost impossible to kill’



The sorting ceremony:


  Accio Quote:
The Sorting Ceremony is not the only major difference between Hogwarts and Ilvermorny (though in so many ways the schools resemble each other). Once students have been allocated a House they are led into a large hall where they select (or are selected by) a wand. Until the 1965 repeal of Rappaport’s Law, which enforced very strict conformity with the Statute of Secrecy, no child was allowed a wand until they arrived at Ilvermorny. Moreover, wands had to be left at Ilvermorny during vacations, and only upon attaining seventeen years of age was the witch or wizard legally allowed to carry a wand outside school.



School uniform:


  Accio Quote:
The robes of Ilvermorny are blue and cranberry. The colours honour Isolt and James: blue because it was Isolt’s favourite colour and because she had wished to be in Ravenclaw house as a child; cranberry in honour of James’s love of cranberry pie. All Ilvermorny students’ robes are fastened by a gold Gordian Knot, in memory of the brooch Isolt found in the ruins of the original Ilvermorny cottage.





How exciting!

   Pottermoe reveals the History of MACUSA0 Comments

Pottermore has been updated with writing from J. K. Rowling about the History of MACUSA.


  Accio Quote:
The Magical Congress of the United States of America, known to American witches and wizards by the abbreviation MACUSA (commonly pronounced as: Mah – cooz – ah) was created in 1693, following the introduction of the International Statute of Wizarding Secrecy. Wizards worldwide had reached a tipping point, suspecting that they could lead freer and happier lives if they built an underground community that offered its own support and had its own structures. This feeling was particularly strong in America, due to the recent Salem Witch Trials.
