If you're reading the Harry Potter books, or on a website in the fandom, then Ravenclaw is a house in Hogwarts.

The attributes of Ravenclaw are knowledge and wit. The house colours are blue and bronze. The founder is Rowena Ravenclaw, and the head of house is Flitwick.

However, if you're a Detentionee, it means the sexiest house. Much sexier than you.
You see those Ravenclaws over there? Yeah. They're sexier than us, aren't they?

The Hogwarts house for smarty-smarts in Harry Potter.
Most people who read Harry Potter think they belong in Ravenclaw. Why? Well, come on... alot of nerds (such as myself) read Harry Potter, and nerds are usually, smart, and Ravenclaw is for the brainy ones, so... :D

P.S.- If the above made no sense, you belong in Hufflepuff. =]

Founded by Rowena Ravenclaw

One of the four 'houses' at Hogwarts.

Usually consists of the smartest students.

Their mascot is the raven.
Said Ravenclaw, "We'll teach those whose intelligence is surest."

(D&D, fantasy games) to cheat, swindle, or double-cross someone, especially if done by means of magic.
That stupid, half-breed elf bitch used mage hand to ravenclaw me during a dice game at the Smiling Dragon Inn.

The cramp one gets in their hand when fingering a girl for a long period of time.
I gave myself a major case of Ravenclaw but I love her so it was worth it.

Ravenclaws are preppy. There is only one exception to that rule, and that is Alley Kitten *nods*
