I took Pottermore and I got Ravenclaw, so I'm glad my friends and me don't have to die any time soon. I can find a solution! <<<I got Ravenclaw and Slytherin XD XD I guess my solution involves killing someone.
I don't think Hogwarts sorting "is what you want to be", but what you will become. Like with Neville, he started out timid, but became brave. The sorting hat sees what is in your heart, but also can give you the chance to choose to be different.
