i don’t really have a preference, the silver is just more readily available for stuff to purchase. i wish they did make more bronze/blue Ravenclaw merchandise!

however, the comic itself was… not really funny. xD i’m sure some Leaky Ravenclaw members can come up with a much more clever or witty ways to make this same point, lol.

Ha! this is so perfect! I’ve noticed that they almost never wear the cloaks anymore in the movies, it bugs me.

I didn’t realize it was different. After all those trivia questions when I answered blue/silver and raven, my friend who was reading the first one didn’t corrrect me. Maybe I read the books longer ago than I thought.

Ravenclaw’s colour is BLUE and BRONZE, face it, we keep it to the book because they come first.

So true and so sad – I was reading SS to my class the other day and I overhead two kids: “I like the movies so much better.” “Yeah, me too.” It really let the wind out of my sails.

That is a funny Cartoon! I say that the books came first, and what JKR decided for the school colours should count more than the movies. The cartoon shows how seriuosly some of us take canon!
