News by You

Today, Pottermore announced the winner of the second House Cup. Last year the Slytherins won, but this year they weren’t so lucky.

The second winner of the Pottermore House Cup is Gryffindor with 48,538,348 points!

Slytherin is in second place with 48,495,275 points, Hufflepuff is in third place with 48,438,276 points, and Ravenclaw is in last with 45,455,773 points.

Pottermore has not announced the prize for the Gryffindor’s yet, but I would expect it to come in a the next week or so. If there’s any prize at all.

Are you surprised Gryffindor won? Were you one of the students trying to earn points for your house?

Pottermore recently released the final chapters in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, so now all eyes are on the release of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. No date for the first chapters from the third book in the series has been announced. We suspect they won’t arrive until early 2013.

    Can’t wait for Prisoner of Azkaban to come out! I think Gryffindors will get early access to the last padlock next to Diagon Alley called “Games Hub” probably a 24 hours early of access because you will earn points probably so they have a very unfair advantage there so they need a short time of early access. Can’t wait for the POA again and hopefully J.K. Rowling will write a quiz judging at least one of the three

    Either Ravenclaws or Hufflepuffs should win the next two.


    • Slytherin_Pride

      Nope: Slytherin

  • Hermione Granger

    How fitting is it that Slytherin won the first one, and then Gryffindor upstages them for the second? :P

  • Daughter of Eve

    I’m gutted Slytherin didn’t win again. Well done, lads and lass’, we’ll try again next time.

    Congrats Gryffindors.

    • Slytherin_Pride

      CONGRATS GRYFFINDORS?!!! They probably cheated >:P

    I thought Slytherin secured the win this time around for sure, so I was definitely surprised when I saw Gryffindor had won! Congrats lions!

  • Lucas Mass

    People still go to that site?

    • HarryHungerAvatar12

      excuse me?

  • yrchmonger

    Did Dumbledore give them a bunch of points again for “saving the world” or some other nonsense so they’d win?

    • Kate

      Sorry, that only occurs in the books.

      • yrchmonger

        Yup, that was the joke.

    Very suspicious, Slytherin had been in the lead for months.

    • Kate

      So? It seems known that when a cup draws near, people work harder. Gryffindor was inching closer to Slytherin, and were almost close by the time the totals were hidden.

  • Kate

    I’m very proud of Gryffindor for winning. :) All the houses did great, really. The totals were all kind of close this time around. <3

    yay! how have i not heard this? i’m in gryffindor! i didn’t really contribute many points though, my dueling spells suck, as do my potions skills.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Maria-Wang/542480760 Maria Wang

    WOW close call! Good one Gryffindor

  • Alexis

    Yay Hufflepuff wasn’t last!

  • Plat

    Omg yesss! I went to the ceremony page and was so shocked! I thought for sure Slytherin would win again. Congrats everyone!

  • Emily

    Good job Gryffindor! And good job on not being last, my fellow Hufflepuffs ;)

  • thegarbar13

    I forgot Pottermore existed…. #sorrynotsorry

  • sa_fi_ra

    Gryffindors get their common room’s artwork as wallpapers and screensavers. I would say not nearly as great prize for winning as the new chapters Slytherins got. Congratulations to gryffindors! Maybe Hufflepuff will win the fourth House Cup since we were last when Slytherin won and now we’re third. Next time second and then win :D

  • matthewhpg

    What did Dumbledore do this time?

  • http://harrymyland.com/ Harry Myland

    Wait, has it really been A YEAR since Slytherin won?? No way has it been a year.

    Has it?

      The house cup is awarded on Pottermore after all the chapter of a book have been released, and is not awarded exactly a year after the previous one

      • http://harrymyland.com/ Harry Myland

        Aaaaah, okay. Year as in House-Year as in when a book wraps. I get it.

    I was surprised when I went to the Great Hall and saw that Gryffindor had won. Slytherin had been in the lead for months. But seeing that their prize is not as good as the one we (Slytherins) got last time, I couldn’t care less.

    • PotterPotts16

      you really are selfish

      • https://www.youtube.com/TheBabarSuhail Babar Suhail

        How am I being selfish? Please explain

  • http://twitter.com/Diana_spn Diana

    Yaaayyy!! When I first entered Pottermore I truly thought Slytherin would win….. Freaking happy we made it and Gryffindor won!!! YAY #ProudGryffindor

  • Han

    OMG WOW – Gryffindor get wallpapers for their computers? Thats the best!

    Ehm, not quite.

  • SnitchSocks4Dobby

    I feel bad. I haven’t even tackled the new chapters yet. Guess I know what I’m going to be doing this weekend I’m Hufflepuff but congratz lions! :)

  • HPForever3 :)

    We Gryffindors won because the points that Dumbledore was supposed to give us in our first year were delayed to this year. All that can be said is that he was truly sincere when he said, “Yes, well done Slytherin. Well done, Slytherin.” :P

    Either that or Harry and Ron defeated another basilisk and were awarded 100 points each plus a Special Services to the School Award. (It still baffles me that Hermione never got one. I mean, technically Harry and Ron were only able to defeat the snake because she did her research in the first place!) All said and done, Gryffindors have been stealing the awards from both Slytherins and basilisks since 1991…er, 1992…decline in July 2012 and rebuttal in November 2012! :P All good nature house competition. (For the most part…)

    Although, would it be traitorous of me to root for Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff to win the Cup for PoA? I mean, Gryffindor and Slytherin have won one each. It would be really fitting to go down the line of the houses. I think Ravenclaw should win PoA and Hufflepuffs should get the glory they’ve been after in GoF. Then in OotP, I am going hardcore Gryffindor FTW! I guess we really are show-offs, aren’t we? :P
