I am Ravenclaw with Hufflepuff leanings. Is that a thing?

30 Days of Harry Potter - day 16: House you would want to be in

Maybe it's because I've always identified with the house, but I feel like Ravenclaw is the house that has been most poorly treated by Warner Brothers¹. For some reason they changed the house colors from blue and bronze to blue and silver and the house animal from an eagle to a raven. If you want a scarf for any other house, you can just buy it from the Warner Brothers store, but if you want a real, authentic Ravenclaw scarf then you have to have a sister with mad crocheting skillz.

¹ Although the scarlet of Gryffindor looks pretty purple on my screen.

I think the better question is "Why would the house called Ravenclaw have an eagle as their animal instead of a raven?" I mean, by naming the guy that turns into a dog Sirius and naming the werewolf Lupin, Rowling proved she didn't mind skipping subtlety entirely, so that's not the issue.

Raven is an adjective to describe the color of the eagle's talons!
