About This Quiz

Just imagine the stress of being a student at Hogwarts. You have to leave your family behind to go to a school where right outside there's a tree that just might beat you to a pulp. The woods are full of monsters, the paintings all watch you and there are ghosts in the bathrooms. Not to mention the giant snakes, giant dogs and giant everything else that might kill or maim you. The staff mostly seem like nice people, but this school is dangerous. You really need someone to comfort you and make you feel safe.
