    21 Things Only Non-Harry Potter Fans Know To Be True

    My house is Slytherpuff. That's a thing, right?

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community what they're sick of hearing about not being a Potterhead. Here are the irritating results.

    1. You've been asked "HOW do you not like Harry Potter?!" so many times, you've lost count.

    2. And it's painful to hear, "you only don't like it because you've never tried to."

    3. Your friends are always shoving theories in your face, when you don't even know the original story anyway.

    5. You can never tell people which house you're in, because you don't even know all of their names.

    8. You don't know which Quidditch position you'd play, because you know nothing about Quidditch at all.

    9. You don't know how to answer, "What's your Patronus?!" — because you don't know what that even means.

    10. You are constantly having to convince people that there's nothing ~wrong~ with you.
