Examine the CanonFandomQuestions of the Wizarding WorldThe Four Houses

With the rise of Pottermore, some fans view Pottermore’s sorting quiz as an unimpeachable authority on which house you belong in…but what if it did not choose what you hoped? What if Pottermore, or any other sorting quiz for that matter, sorts you into a house you know you do not belong in? This panel will be providing you all the opportunity to hear a discussion on the importance of choosing your own house and on the belief that we know ourselves better than J.K. Rowling.
