As you walk into the Great and gaze around, surrounded by your fellow first years, you are in awe of the ceiling which shows the night sky twinkling its many stars to you. Thousands of candles floating above the tables adding warmth to the hall. The older students watching as you and your fellow first congregate near the high table where sits a stool and a patched and frayed hat, that looks like its seen better years. The Deputy Headmistress Minerva McGonagall walks up to the stool and patiently waits as the seem of the hat rips open like a mouth and begins to sing:

"Oh you may not think I'm pretty,
But don't judge on what you see,
I'll eat myself if you can find
A smarter hat than me.

You can keep your bowlers black,
Your top hats sleek and tall,
For I'm the Hogwarts Sorting Hat
And I can cap them all.

There's nothing hidden in your head
The Sorting Hat can't see,
So try me on and I will tell you
Where you ought to be.

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve, and chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart;

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil;

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
if you've a ready mind,
Where those of wit and learning,
Will always find their kind;

Or perhaps in Slytherin
You'll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.

So put me on! Don't be afraid!
And don't get in a flap!
You're in safe hands (though I have none)
For I'm a Thinking Cap!"

The song finished McGonagall steps forward and says, "When I call your name, please come and have a seat and I will place the sorting hat on your head." As she unfurls the scroll and call the names you become antsy and you hope the house is right for you, soon she calls your own name and you step up and take you seat onto the stool, the hat floats over your head and soon its upon your head and your world becomes black. You then hear a voice, "Hmm, now where to put you?"
