Yay, I just got a wand!
It is a Rowan with Unicorn Core, Thirteen and a quarter inches, slightly yielding (if that means anything at all)

Just wondering what anyone else got, and how they answered the questions... Wink

What is considered to be the average length of a wand?

According to the website, most wands are between 9 and 14 inches.

Just because it seems appropriate, and in case of any questions:
Quote :

Many wandmakers simply match the wand length to the size of the witch or wizard who will use it, but this is a crude measure, and fails to take into account many other, important considerations. In my experience, longer wands might suit taller wizards, but they tend to be drawn to bigger personalities, and those of a more spacious and dramatic style of magic. Neater wands favour more elegant and refined spell-casting. However, no single aspect of wand composition should be considered in isolation of all the others, and the type of wood, the core and the flexibility may either counterbalance or enhance the attributes of the wand’s length.

Most wands will be in the range of between nine and fourteen inches. While I have sold extremely short wands (eight inches and under) and very long wands (over fifteen inches), these are exceptionally rare. In the latter case, a physical peculiarity demanded the excessive wand length. However, abnormally short wands usually select those in whose character something is lacking, rather than because they are physically undersized (many small witches and wizards are chosen by longer wands).

Wand flexibility or rigidity denotes the degree of adaptability and willingness to change possessed by the wand-and-owner pair - although, again, this factor ought not to be considered separately from the wand wood, core and length, nor of the owner’s life experience and style of magic, all of which will combine to make the wand in question unique.

Heh. I got another account for my RP character Velan, and I got the wand wood pine:

"The straight-grained pine wand always chooses an independent, individual master who may be perceived as a loner, intriguing and perhaps mysterious. Pine wands enjoy being used creatively, and unlike some others, will adapt unprotestingly to new methods and spells. Many wandmakers insist that pine wands are able to detect, and perform best for, owners who are destined for long lives, and I can confirm this in as much as I have never personally known the master of a pine wand to die young. The pine wand is one of those that is most sensitive to non-verbal magic."

Velan got the loner wand XD

Is this quiz the same as on Pottermore?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

If so, I have willow, dragon heartstring, 11 3/4 inches, unbending.

Edit: According to Luna, my wand is pine, unicorn hair, 10 3/4 inches, hard. Hmm... That's kinda boring. I prefer the other one much more. Razz

Damn. Do you know any websites that have the same quiz?

Also, is this the same one for houses?

I'm trying to find out what I would have without actually making an account. Razz

i recognise some of the questions, but i can't be sure that the quiz-maker-person has interpreted them right.

i've got an idea. why don't you tell me the answers to all the questions, and i'll check it against some data i found a while ago (some idiots did the quizzes many times to see what happened)

i'll post the questions to the wand quiz too if you like Smile
