Title: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: Weisel on February 19, 2015, 06:42:13 pm
Hogwarts AU, anyone? Like the high school AU, only magical and terrifying.

FIRST AND FOREMOST, who's in which house? I think Shion would be in Gryffindor (nearly Ravenclaw, but his desire to do what's right is greater than his desire for knowledge), Nezumi and Inukashi both in Slytherin, and Safu in Ravenclaw.

Shion is definitely a Gryffindor. There's no question about that.

The only part of Harry Potter that is like No. 6 is Azkaban. Or maybe if Voldemort was Ministre of Magic O.o Let's hope that neither of those things happens...

Okay, as for other people's houses. I think I would put Inukashi in Hufflepuff or Gryffindor. Safu's definitely a Ravenclaw.

As for Nezumi. He's tricky. I could make a case for him being in any house except Hufflepuff. I think that most people tend to put him in Slytherin. I agree that canon Nezumi would probably be a Slytherin. But if he didn't have the tragic backstory... maybe not so much.

I think it would be interesting if we had one character from each house. That would be a cool thing, imho. If we put Inukashi in Hufflepuff and assume Slytherin for Nezumi, it's definitely doable. They could be known as the friend group from all four houses or something.

When I was reading the end of No.6 volume 2 last night since I couldn't sleep, I was like "NEZUMI IS SUCH A SLYTHERIN DAMN." (it was when he got the note about Safu and was like "well I could share this with Shion like I'm expected to but that would hurt me in the end, so nah.")

I had a lot of trouble placing Inukashi... I first thought Slytherin since they're all about fighting for themself in canon, but what would Inukashi be like outside of canon...??? What a tricky character. I thought I had them figured out.

Ahhh this is super interesting!  I love seeing everyone being put into houses, though somehow my ideas always deviate...
I actually considered Hufflepuff for Shion, based on how as a twelve year old he chose to help Nezumi despite everything and not even caring that much for losing his privileges and education, and being friends to everyone and everything, unless your name is Rashi but then you deserve it lbh. (Also, the common room is close to the kitchens ;) And wasn't there this saying 'don't **** with badgers/Hufflepuffs'?) Gryffindor would be really good too though, I actually keep forgetting Gryffindor because all the main characters in HP are already in Gryff, haha. I think everyone would think Ravenclaw for Shion, but I don't think he'd be put there in the end, just like how everyone thought he'd just steamroll through the special program and become a top elite. But then he helped topple the government instead, oops... So yeah maybe just Gryffindor then, haha.

But yes, Safu is definitely a Ravenclaw, though she also has some characteristics from the other houses. 'I don't care how dangerous it is, I want to see Shion!'
And yeah, canon!Nezumi seems most likely a Slytherin. I'm not sure how much of his background shaped him, considering how often and how young he got told to only rely on himself and so on... hard to say if he was already leaning to that kind of attitude.

I agree with @Vox for Hufflepuff or Gryffindor for Inukashi - maybe ultimately Gryffindor from the Sorting Hat? Because look at the ending in the Correctional Facility there... Then again, @Weisel also made a good point with Inukashi mostly looking for survival, but after meeting Shion, we see other sides of Inukashi. Hm. Hmm hmm hmm. Difficult to sort people just by four main characteristics.
I can't help but looking at the HP characters. Someone on tumblr made a stance for how the main trio is a representation of all other houses but in Gryffindor: Harry would be Slytherin, Hermione a Ravenclaw and Ron a Hufflepuff, but their individual bravery put them in Gryffindor in the end, which sounds like a nice theory to me. (Now if only I could find that post again, because I'm sure they put it much better than I just did.)


(And then my brain started on the adults and I got stuck on Rashi as Umbridge and I'll show myself out now, I clearly stopped making sense a while ago.)
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: lawlya on February 20, 2015, 04:24:42 am
I actually thought of Shion as a Hufflepuff too xD Wasn't there a post on tumblr that once said that Hufflepuff is the house for those who can't really be sorted into one of the others because they have characteristics from all? But if it's not Hufflepuff then definitely Gryffindor ^^
I never thought about placing Nezumi anywhere else than in Slytherin ^^" I think he would still fit, even without his background. He's quite manipulative in canon and I don't think you get this good if it's not in you either way. If I remember right it was said that Slytherins know exactly how to get what they want?
Safu's clearly a Ravenclaw but Inukashi ... on a whim I'd say Gryffindor xD I mean they're really careful around people but like them really fast when they get to know them. That's a bit like the behavior of a dog (I just can't analyze Inukashi without referring to dogs it seems xD). So, imagine little Inukashi trusts new friends very quickly but like all people has to learn that there are false friends - especially with their background; being brought up by dogs and all that. So they're starting to be careful at first but once they're sure about someone, they want to protect them even though they may usually seem coward - with their habit of staying out of trouble at all cost. Isn't that bravery?

On another note: Wasn't there a survey that sorts you into houses? We could take it as different characters to get a better idea about that whole thing ^^

Slytherin house values ambition, cunning and resourcefulness
Ravenclaw values intelligence, knowledge, and wit.
Hufflepuff values values hard work, patience and loyalty.
Gryffindor values bravery, daring and nerve.



Slytherin:

Ambition:
Nezumi when it comes to getting rid of No. 6.
Safu when it comes to Shion. But I’d give Nezumi more ambition points. XD

Cunning:
Nezumi gets what he wants. He’s manipulative.
Inukashi is also a bit cunning and knows how to get their information. But again, I think Nezumi is definitely the most cunning character.

Resourcefulness:

Nezumi (for example: mini robots, manipulation, making plans)
Shion (using the dog to bring Shionn to Inukashi, naming mice, and treating wounds in emergency situations) But again…Nezumi is way out in front of him.

My ranking: 1.) Nezumi    2.) Safu, Inukashi, Shion



Ravenclaw:

Intelligence:
Safu, Nezumi, Shion. They are all intelligent. According to the diagram in the No. 6 guide, Safu’s intellect is the best: http://listenforthelove.tumblr.com/post/73825811223/no-6-main-character-profiles-1-3-shion-nezumi
So Safu is winning! Yay! :D  But Nezumi and Shion are also very intelligent, so they could be Ravenclaws as well.

Knowledge
Again… Safu, Nezumi, Shion. Again, Safu is the best. Nezumi knows a lot, but like Shion said, his knowledge is not very categorized. Shion also knows a lot, but he could learn more. And then we also have Shion’s outstanding memorization ability. But I also think, Safu wins.

Wit:
Safu and Nezumi. Wouldn’t put Shion here… ^^° Nezumi would also be a good Ravenclaw.

My ranking: 1.) Safu   2.) Nezumi   3.) Shion



Hufflepuff

Hard work:
Yeah, I’d put Inukashi here. They have several jobs, like a dog hotel, dealing with goods and food, lending dogs… I think Inukashi is working hard all the time!
Followed by Shion… School and part-time job, and then he’s washing dogs. And then of course the Restructural Committee.
Nezumi can work hard, but I think he’d rather be pretty lazy. X’D If there’s no need to work, he wouldn’t work. 
Safu’s learning, but I think she never actually had to work part-time or something. There was no need to do something like that. But I could imagine she’s also a hard worker.

Patience:
Well, definitely not Nezumi. X’D And not Safu, she said so herself, when Karan asked her to stay and wait for Shion.
I think Shion is the most patient character. He has to wait the whole **** time. And he likes kids, so he HAS to be patient. X’D
I think Inukashi is also patient, when they need to train the dogs. Or when they waited to get new stuff from the CF. I think they need a lot of patience.

Loyalty:
Inukashi!  And also Shion.

My ranking: 1.) Inukashi    2.) Shion   



Gryffindor:

Bravery
All of them! Nezumi rescued Shion even though it was extremely dangerous, Shion rescued Nezumi, and both of them entered the CF to safe Safu…
Inukashi helped the boys in the CF. They are all very brave.
Hm… Okay, Safu’s intention is rather daring, but she was very brave in the CF.
But I think Shion is the bravest. He rescued Rico, he nearly got killed when the vegetable seller wanted to shoot in the crowd…

Daring:
I think Shion is the most daring character, but just because he doesn’t know the West Block yet, that’s why he opens the door without any hesitation and he’s unarmed the whole time but he doesn’t care at all. Or… that he told Yamase his opinion concerning the city.
Safu is also daring. She wants to go to the West Block just to search for Shion.
Nezumi is a little bit daring. He’s just daring when there’s no other way to achieve his goal. (For example getting caught during the man hunt to get into the CF…)
But all in all he’s not very daring, because it means endangering his life. Inukashi is the same.

Nerve:
Shion… ^^° Definitely Shion. Letting in a stranger, treating him… he’s able to react in absolute emergency situations (choking Sasori, getting a gun and killing Rashi before he can kill them…), operate on Nezumi while the **** building is going to burn down to the ground and forcing Rikiga to hand him the car keys… forcing them to go into the city together with them while everything is on fire. He sure has some nerves.
And also Nezumi. I mean he was able to remove the pupa from Shion’s neck. He’s stealing cars and stuff like that. X’D

My ranking: 1.) Shion   2.) Safu/Nezumi  3.) Inukashi



According to those characteristics, I’d put Shion in Gryffindor, Safu in Ravenclaw, Nezumi in Slytherin and Inukashi in Hufflepuff, even though all of them have characteristics for at least one of the other houses. ^^

Post by: Vox on February 20, 2015, 09:44:17 am
@Ahiku that is a really nice analysis, and I also like that you came to the same conclusions that I did XD

Shion in Gryffindor makes the most sense, because of his pigheaded bravery and desire to charge in without thinking about things. I mean, doesn't he kinda remind you of Harry sometimes? He's not passive enough to be in Hufflepuff.

Now we just need pictures of all of them in their school uniforms.

What do you think their favourite subjects would be? I bet you Inukashi would love Care of Magical Creatures. Shion would probably like Botany.
Also, what do you think their magical backgrounds would be? Muggle parents or no? I'm wondering... what if everyone who was in No. 6 in the novel are ancestrally witches and wizards, but West Block residents are muggles? Or what if vice versa?
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: Ahiku on February 20, 2015, 10:40:04 am
Hmm...it sounds legit that people in No. 6 are witches and wizards and people outside of No. 6 muggles.
But somehow I'd like Inukashi to be a pure-blood, with a large family just like the Weasley family.

Nezumi is an orphan and lives with horrible foster parents. ^^° or alone...whatever. XD Hmm... I'd say he's pure-blood.

Karan is like Mrs. Weasley... and Shion's friends are spending most of their free time together in Shion's house. I think Shion is half-blood. Karan is a witch, but Shion's father is a human.

And I think Safu is a muggle-born, living together with her Grandmother.

Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: listenforthelove on February 20, 2015, 10:51:15 am
@Vox: oi, passive? Tonks was a Hufflepuff! :D but yeah, Gryffindor makes sense for Shion. And whoa, @Ahiku, super extensive analysis! So great!

Shion would love herbology of course, haha.
Safu... hm. Transfiguration, maybe? That's canonically some of the most difficult magic, right? I can't really think of an equivalent for cognitive studies in the wizarding world...Care of Magical Creatures of course for Inukashi, what else. Nezumi, I wonder. Defense Against the Dark Arts? Potions?
 

As for backgrounds - hmmm. I guess Nezumi's parents/family were probably special in the wizarding world, to keep with canon. Not entirely sure in what sense though... But definitely a reason to make him a threat for the government. Maybe also something with a prophecy?

Inukashi - muggle-born, or parents unknown so thus magical heritage unknown? The HP universe equivalent of No. 6 would probably keep talented tiny witches and wizards in Chronos to groom their talents, but I don't know how much that should say about their heritage. In canon, the government doesn't particularly seem to care about that as long as your kid is smart (Karan was a single mother and all - but then again, they probably knew everything of Shion's background/father anyway), so I wonder if they'd care a lot if the kids were pureblood. (Otherwise Shion would probably never make it into Chronos to begin with, unless Karan could somehow prove Shion's father was pureblood.) I'm kind of tempted to make Karan a Muggle actually, but hmm. Or maybe a witch who decided she preferred life as a Muggle better, I don't know - she seemed really happy to have to work hard to make her living rather than live off the luxury provided for her in Chronos. Whatever the case, she'd run her bakery without witchcraft and no-one would believe that because everything takes so good, haha.

Safu: I only just saw @Ahiku's reply (hence the above not really relating to what you said, sorry!), but I think Muggle born would go well with her indeed. Although her whole background is kind of similar to Neville's... For as far as we know it, anyway. We never do find out what happened to her parents or when they died.


I'm just throwing stuff at the wall here to see what sticks. It'd be great if we could work out some big AU together though! Team work and all~
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: Vox on February 20, 2015, 12:06:12 pm
@listenforthelove okay so maybe the word I was looking for was "sensible" XD
(I'm a Hufflepuff too so... XD)

Nezumi would definitely like Defense Against The Dark Arts. Probably because he is interested in the Dark Arts themselves. But Shion won't let him try them. Unless it's for a really really good cause. XD

What if Karan is a squib but was lucky enough to have a super-magical son? Like, her parents were both magical but she wasn't and it skipped a generation? And she had planned to marry a muggle and live a normal life but then Shion had magic and so that didn't happen?

Inukashi is definitely muggleborn, in my mind. I could see Safu as coming from a family of magicians, though.

As for Nezumi... you're right, he has to be special somehow. But how? Maybe his particular family had a certain gift which is rare in the wizarding world but potentially either very useful or very dangerous... like Parstletongue, but more useful... of course he keeps it hidden... I mean he could just come from a family of straight-up shapeshifters - that would make sense with his whole nature connection, and his acting/disguise thing... or what if his mother is actually just some kind of nature spirit so he's not even human... idk, I think that one is reaching a bit too much.


I think we should make a post about this on the RC blog and invite more people to join the conversation. Since this is so interesting and all o3o
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: lawlya on February 20, 2015, 12:10:44 pm
I can just imagine Nezumi stealing books about dark spells from the forbidden part of the library and Shion finding him with them xD

I really like the idea of Karan being a Squib <3 Question is: Did Shion ever meet his grandparents and if yes, did Karan ask them to play being Muggle for the sake of Shion and her husband?

And yes to more people joining the conversation! AUs are so fun x3
Ahiku, you think we should open a thread for our Panem-AU too xD?
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: Weisel on February 20, 2015, 12:17:16 pm
What if Nezumi had some Veela blood in him and that's why everyone's like "DAMN SON, YOU FINE AS HELL" like they are in the novels?
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: lawlya on February 20, 2015, 12:24:46 pm
Good idea! Is he aware of it? I mean if his parents died when he was young and he was brought up by a grandma or left alone in some kind of orphanage, it could be possible that he doesn't know that he has Veela blood in him.
Apparently Veela can seduce others with their looks, singing and dancing; it would fit ^^ And since there aren't any male Veela in the canon universe of Harry Potter and it's unknown whether male descendants have any heritage of their Veela blood, there's a lot freedom. Could explain Nezumi's grey eyes for example.
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: Ahiku on February 20, 2015, 12:43:06 pm
Ah, I like the Veela idea a lot! :D
Well, that would make him special, indeed!

Ah, okay, I thought about it...
Inukashi is a muggle-born (just thought a family that's like a bunch of dogs is a bit like the Weasley family XD foxes...dogs...whatever), but muggle-born is better. I could imagine that Inukashi is an animagus...and Nezumi as well. Dog and rat.
Safu's background really reminds me of Nevilles... So maybe her parents aren't dead, but hm...almost.

The squib idea is great... but somehow I'd like it when Karan would pretend just to be a squib or a muggle. For whatever reason... because I totally love strong moms and come on, it would be sooo cool when Shion or one of the other 3 is in danger and suddenly, she pulls out her wand and is actually a pretty powerful witch... maybe she just decided that she doesn't want to be a witch anymore.. like listenforthelove said. XD But well, that's just my idea.
"Don't touch my baby, you ****! *kills evil witch" Shion, Nezumi and Co.: O_O MOM!/ MA'AM!

Ahiku, you think we should open a thread for our Panem-AU too xD?
Lol XD Yeah, why not!



Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: listenforthelove on February 20, 2015, 01:28:22 pm
@Vox: haha you are forgiven ;) (Technically I'm a Gryffindor according to Pottermore but sssh) Yeah, 'sensible' is a good word for 'puffs.

@Weisel: The Veela heritage for Nezumi is a great idea, I love it!
(Didn't some wands have hair of Veela in them in France? I'm not sure if that's even relevant but I just remembered, haha.)

@Ahiku: haha yeah now Karan just sounds like Mrs. Weasley, I dig it. Only the other way around; rather than a mother of many children and coming from a big family, she's from a small family with just Shion, but both take in other kids as if they were family just as well. AHh~ Karan as a Squib would be nice too though. Hard to pick, it's not exactly like we can have a middle ground here XD;

Just a random thought, but maybe Inukashi has a connection to werewolves? Like, gets along with them super well or turns out to be related to one or something. Completely random but I suddenly had werewolves on my mind, so there you go.

@Ahiku: Inukashi and Nezumi as animagi would be very neat, though I guess that's for later years huh... super difficult and all. But I like it~ 
(Hm, does that mean that they + Safu and Shion make a new Marauders' group?)


And ohhh what would Shion's and Safu's patronus be? (Rat/mouse for Nezumi and dog for Inukashi seem like a given, haha.) I'm kind of tempted to go with rat/mouse for Shion too, if only because your patronus can change shape and often takes a shape relevant to your significant other (e.g. doe + stag for Lily and James) because they're so often the source of happy memories, so eh.
... That got away from me there a bit, oops.
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: lawlya on February 20, 2015, 01:54:05 pm
Yes, some wands have the hair of a Veela in them. Would be cool if Shion had one, wouldn't it?

Hey, Inukashi as a descendant of a werewolf would be really cool. And it would make sense considering their love for dogs :) Or maybe they even are a werewolf? That would make them even more alike the Marauders xD

Ah, Patronus are really difficult >.< But yeah, I'd probably say Shion would have a mouse or rat but I'm not so sure if Nezumi would have one too? Inukashi would definitely have a dog though - they're too much like one to have a different Patronus. Safu though ... I don't really now.

And after reading the welcome letter of Hufflepuff I'm all the more sure about Shion being one but I'd be fine with Gryffindor too. It's probably a close call and would end with the Sorting Hat asking him where he would rather be ^^
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: listenforthelove on February 20, 2015, 02:06:57 pm
@lawlya: haha, yeah, Shion's wand was what I was going there for, caught me!

Hmm, Inukashi as a werewolf... well, I guess that would nicely parallel how people give Inu strange looks in canon (so you'd substitute being raised by dogs and treating dogs as family by being a werewolf).

I just got thinking, what if Nezumi's patronus became a snake? And everyone would assume it's because he's a Slytherin, but instead it's because of Shion's scars (which he probably got by some magic accident if he wasn't born with them in this AU), but he's so not gonna talk about that. It's totally because of Slytherin, yup. (Because a patronus is supposed to protect you and is born from happy memories, so... yeah. I am very subtle. And of course the obvious Bible reference, what with Eve and all.)

Safu, hmm... something in me said 'horse', but I have no idea where that came from. Maybe a bird? Shion did compare her to a bird in flight in the end, so that could make sense. (She could definitely have an owl though if nothing else. I only just remembered they're allowed pets in Hogwarts XD)
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: Ahiku on February 20, 2015, 02:35:38 pm
@listenforthelove
OH god, I totally love your idea that Nezumi's patronus is a snake... and that it's of course just because of slytherin. Hehe! That's a really cool idea. ^^
And Shion's scars... totally an accident.

Ah, but do you know what's too bad? When Nezumi and SHion are in different houses, they can't share a bed together. I bet they always sneak out at night and fall alseep somewhere together. I could imagine that the invisibility cloak belongs to Shion. Maybe something he got from his dad. (I mean Shion's father made a cradle for him in Beyond. Maybe he left the cloak in the AU instead.)

Hm...Safu's feelings for Shion are also pretty strong. Maybe her patronus is a mouse and Shion's is a rat. o.o Ah... but well, most animagi may take the same form of their patronus... So Nezumi's should be a rat, since he's a rat then. But I like the snake idea better. >,<
It's fitting for Inukashi, though.
Ah, it would also be cool when Safu's patronus is something special, like a phoenix.
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: lawlya on February 20, 2015, 02:43:17 pm
Wohoo, parallel thoughts ;)

And yes, a snake would be perfect. Not only because of Shion's scar but also because snakes "devour" mice so ...

Ah, yes. The pet thing. Would be too bad with Shion owning a cat and Nezumi a couple of mice, wouldn't it xD
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: Vox on February 20, 2015, 03:49:33 pm
Okay, first off, I love the Nezumi-veela thing. Yes pls.
I feel like Safu's pet would be an owl. Or maybe a raven.
And werewolf Inukashi is good. Let's do it.

As for the more complicated issue of patronuses. If Safu, Shion, and Nezumi all had mouse patronuses (Shion's changed to be like Nezumi's, Safu's changed to be like Shion's) it would be like the mouse trio XD But I don't actually know that Nezumi would have a mouse patronus to begin with...
IDK if you guys know this, but after [HP spoilers!!] Fred died, George was never able to cast another patronus. So what if Nezumi is never able to cast a patronus until after he meets Shion? So if his patronus was supposed to be another animal before, we'll never know that it wasn't a snake?
I feel like initially Shion's patronus would have been something else, and IDK what or if it would change to match Nezumi's probably
Inukashi's would be a dog of course, but what kind of dog?? A mutt??
As for Safu, what if hers is a bee O.o

Just so everyone knows, I made a tumblr post about this thread, so we may be joined  by other people. IDK. :3
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: listenforthelove on February 20, 2015, 04:07:58 pm
@Vox: oh, ravens are great!! They're super loyal to their owners, right? That'd be nice for Safu. (Oh right, Youmin has crows... well sucks to be you Youmin you can just go away then.)

Omigosh though, a bee for Safu XD Or like a swarm of bees. Well, tbh if I were a Dementor I'd go running for the hills for that. Good choice I'd say.

But I'm here for Nezumi not being able to cast a (good) patronus until after meeting Shion, gosh. (Or after getting close to him, depending on when they meet in this AU. Like if they're still 16, that would put then in their sixth year, which old good enough to learn how to cast a patronus. Harry was a special case in his third year, but by his fifth it seemed most of the DA seemed to do just fine to summon one after a while.)

Hm, a super loyal dog breed for Inukashi, like a labrador or something? Or maybe something tiny and unassuming, like a pug or something, pff.

Thanks for the post to the RC blog! Let's hope more people will join us~

I can see Yomin as a DADA teacher?

Post by: Weisel on February 20, 2015, 04:49:50 pm
@peridotRapture welcome! And yeah, I can totally see that! I bet he'd have a heck of a time keeping his class under control and he'd get all riled up over it, which would only make the students act worse. Not every day, just when everyone's restless.
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: lawlya on February 20, 2015, 04:54:59 pm
I don't know, when I read Yomin as the DADA teacher I just imagined the Major as headmaster and Labcoat as the potions teacher xD

Post by: listenforthelove on February 20, 2015, 05:03:49 pm
@peridotRapture Welcome here!! Ohh, that's a very good one~ yeah, he'd probably get riled up as @Vox said, haha.

@lawlya: omigosh though, the Mayor as headmaster, help. XD I was first trying to think of something else for Labcoat, but Potions teacher sounds good if we keep him in a Hogwarts setting.
(I think I initially would have picked the Mayor as Minister of Magic and Labcoat as whatever equivalent for Voldemort, since he thinks he knows eeeeverything there is to know and the Mayor is ultimately more like a puppet to his scheming. But then again, with that plan I ended up with Rashi as Umbridge, and now I'm still picturing Rashi covered in pink and kittens and I. H-help.)

Would Rikiga be a teacher, by the way? Because I can't help but think he got expelled but is still on the premises somewhere, actually pretty good at his job when he's sober, whatever he teaches. History of Magic?

Post by: lawlya on February 20, 2015, 05:17:13 pm
@listenforthelove: Your setting is good too. And makes perfectly sense. AND RASHI IN PINK OH MY GOD!
Then, if we go with "Hogwarts is the good side", how about Rikiga as headmaster x'D He would adore Shion of course and Nezumi would get detentions for nearly everything he does. But the way you describe Rikiga here ... is pretty much Hagrid. Minus the alcohol of course. But he was expelled and then became a teacher ^^"

@Weisel: headcanon accepted XD

@lawlya: ah yeah, I was thinking the opposite of Hagrid (expelled as a teacher for Rikiga, not as a student as in Hagrid's case). But yes yes yes on shamelessly giving Shion all the points and putting Nezumi in endless detention (and Inukashi too I bet). That would definitely be a thing.
Can someone be both headmaster and teacher? I don't know many adults in No. 6 I'd comfortably put in the headmaster position to be honest, help. XD Well, maybe Rou.

I think it would work out. I had class with my headmaster xD

And yes, I caught up to that but the similarity was too much for me to not mention it ^^"
Though Inukashi would just easily get detentions when they insult Rikiga again (which is like, nearly always except when Shion's with them xD).

Yeah, Rou as headmaster sounds good. And he could teach McGonagalls class. Since he seems to like giving people names after animals.

DID I HEAR HOGWARTS AU? Pardon me as I pop out of the woodwork.

I like the Shion analysis as a Gryffindor or a Hufflepuff, but I'm going to have to disagree personally. (SORRY)
I think Shion looks like a Gryffindor, but really is a Ravenclaw.

While Shion does grow into a strong young man who values love and family and has a lot of courage-- I can't see him wanting to be a Gryffindor.

Students are sorted when they're 11. Shion at age 11 is not looking to be a courageous monkey he's looking to expand (or explode) but not to be brave.

He kind of says so himself when describing why exactly he chose to take care of Nezumi; "I was no cold-blooded monster. But I also wasn't teeming in compassion and goodwill enough to extend a hand to anyone who was injured. I was no saint. I hated dealing with hassles and disagreements. But I'd taken this intruder in. "

When Nezumi asks why he of course pulls the 'you look like a little girl' card-- but what he's really thinking is:
"And your eyes were a strange color that I'd never seen before. And they drew me in."
(Yes yes I'm pulling THAT quote)  http://9th-ave.blogspot.com/2011/06/eng-novel-no6-v1ch1b.html (http://9th-ave.blogspot.com/2011/06/eng-novel-no6-v1ch1b.html)

For Shion, as a young boy, his curiosity and attraction to Nezumi trumps his desire for self-preservation. He's not trying to be brave there, and he doesn't see his action as brave-- he's curious.

He does a noble thing, in saving Nezumi-- Shion is a good person. But he's a curious person before he's a brave person. So I'm smelling Ravenclaw off that.

ALSO, the sorting hat takes personal preference into account. For someone like 11 year old Shion who's kind of burnt out on humanity-- I can't see him wanting to be among the company of Gryffindor-greats. He doesn't see himself as nerve-y-- and I think would potentially think the opposite.

Also also, since the purpose of sorting is to allow growth in students, I can see Shion longing more to grow in knowledge more than grow in bravery. Shion is lacking in cleverness-- I see him as the type of person who really sees the box, but struggles with thinking outside of it due to his upbringing kind of shoving him in there. Ravenclaw while being the 'smart' house also is a house of self-expression and quirkiness (Ex: Luna Lovegood) so he definitely has some room to grow there. He is witty. He's got a sharp tongue in the novels, and thinks on his feet-- he's just rotten at expressing it-- something living in the Ravenclaw house would help him with a lot I think. So it's a really nice fit for him character-growth-wise as well as immediate character-wise.

I do agree with Slytherin Nezumi. I think he'd honestly be better suited for Ravenclaw, but with a tragic backstory (I think muggleborn Nezumi with parents killed by a house fire caused by a wizard, might be interesting to bring some of the No. 6 vs. Shion dynamics in... Though I'm REALLY digging part Veela Nezumi, jeez it's a toss-up) and being AGE 11-- I can see him wanting to keep himself nice and safe and dangerous looking. He's also a sharp guy and Slytherin would definitely help him grow. Though I'm not sure this growth would always be for the better since a lot of Nezumi's cunning and stuff is born from a dark place...but hey, it's what he'd ask for.


OH GOD THIS WAS AN ESSAY I HAVE A PROBLEM UH...

@secretagentfan thanks for showing up! that was really interesting!
i want to reply to all of it later, but i'm a bit busy at the moment, so let me just propose this for now:

we don't know much about how the veela are viewed by the wizarding world in canon. given their general attitude towards other magical creatures, it's not too much of a stretch to imagine that they don't treat them very well, right? and if nezumi is actually half veela (instead of just 1/4 like fleur) then it's very possible he's gotten sh*t his whole life because of it. since there's not much about veela in canon (and this is an AU) we could easily make some really sad headcanon like half the veela got wiped out by wizards or whatever. because you're right, the nezumi-is-mad-at-where-shion-comes-from thing is important.

...what if he doesn't even go to hogwarts. what if he taught himself magic and lives in the shrieking shack, and then his life is really interrupted when werewolf!inukashi shows up in there one day.
too much of a stretch???

Hiii :d I've found this AU thread via tumblr too, thank you for sharing it!

I totally dig the idea of Nezumi being a Veela. They're known for being temperamental, beautiful, good at singing, fierce warriors. what more could you want?!
(source: http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Veela (http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Veela))
there's also a tidbit on here about how if a Veela's hair is pulled out, they die or get horribly disfigured. So, what if one night, while Shion and Nez are hanging out, Shion accidentally pulls out a hair of Nezumi's and freaks out and Nezumi covers his face with his hands and screams... before bursting into laughter and says that since he's half (or quarter or whatever) Veela, he's not bound by that rule (and he's not even sure it's real in the first place).

I totally see Youmin as the DADA teacher!
and I actually kinda saw Rikiga as someone like Filch, where he's a squib and a caretaker of the school. He spoils Shion with candy from Hogsmeade. I just can't imagine him being a teacher at all... (That, or I'd put someone like Getsuyaku in the role of caretaker of the school and he keeps Inukashi's werewolving secrets or something. ;n;)

@secretagentfan: never apologize for essays, that was super interesting to read and I think you bring up a lot of very good points! It's very hard to sort someone definitely in one of four houses anyway. I personally always felt a bit opposed against Shion being in Ravenclaw because it's so easy: 'oh he's the smart one, so Ravenclaw'. If there's no motivation beyond that, I get a bit sad (because in that sense, Hermione should have been a Ravenclaw too, but she got sorted into Gryffindor regardless). But you brought up much more than just that, so I'm much tempted to agree despite my initial complaints.

Shion's curiosity is definitely his major characteristic, and also explains why he approaches people the way he does. Though he's more likely to think out of the box than some others in No. 6, he definitely needs help with that - living in the West Block helps there in canon. I'm just wondering in how far he craves knowledge over learning, if you catch my drift, and how far it'd influence Ravenclaw over another house. (I'm not sure if I even put that in the right words, never mind how relevant it is to the discussion, words how do I >_<.)
I am also forever in doubt in how far Shion is a genuinely kind person - because Nezumi is really quick to cut it down, to say he's all nice words and nothing else, but I still feel there's a strength in that. Not in all cases, but still. Considering Shion grew up in Chronos, I'd imagine that compassion and empathy aren't qualities he often got to pull out, but Shion still seems to possess them and showcasts them. Sure, he's curious too, but if it was just his curiosity, his treatment of Nezumi (and others later) might have been more sterile. He doesn't really seem to think he has to be nice to other people (e.g. Safu with her coat, though we just have Safu's judgment to go on that) - he just is? Does any of that make sense?

But you're also very right in bringing up that a house is for the next seven years and that it has to help you grow as a character. Luna Lovegood is an excellent example of someone you'd not immediately suspect in Ravenclaw, but gets sorted there anyway.
Hmmmm. Hm hm hm.


Hmm, can't we have both Veela!Nezumi and his parents being killed by a wizard? I'm not sure how much half-Veela (or quarter-Veela) counts towards being pureblood, so if you go with the 'No. 6 only wants really pure bloods' line, then he'd still have good reason to be so against them.
... Wait that's basically what @Vox said, I seem to have skipped your comment earlier. Uh, yeah, I agree XD; great point, we can do pretty much whatever we want with Veela (I don't think Pottermore pulled out a lot more on them, did it?). I mean, all we know for sure is that 1/8th male Veela is definitely possible (because Fleur and Bill had a son), so earlier in the bloodline should be possible too I'd say. Maybe rare, but that would still tie in nicely.


@lawlya: Rou as Transfiguration teacher is pretty excellent! Wasn't Dumbledore too before he retired as teacher? Somehow I see quite some parallels between the two tbh... With trusting the wrong people to make the right decisions and so on. Not sure how big a case you could make out of Rou trying to use Nezumi to change things the way Dumbledore did with Harry, but...


@Meopat: welcome here and thanks for joining in! Ohhh, I really like Getsuyaku as the caretaker, I dig it. Maybe he can get in trouble for keeping things a secret to mirror canon (but not too closely okay please?).
And thanks to your link, I realized that Veela hair makes a wand 'quite temperamental', hmmm. Interesting... (and assuming Fleur didn't murder her grandmother for her wand, that does seem to disprove that hairpulling thing, but I'm gonna guess most wizards wouldn't know XD)
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: Ahiku on February 21, 2015, 06:10:47 am
Ahh, I want to share another headcanon:
Imagine Safu and Shion are both Ravenclaws (according to No. 6’s elite class) and Nezumi and Inukashi are lepers, since they are not 100% human. They live in the forbidden forest.
In that article we also learn that Veela's "have power and ability over storms" and that "They often appear as beautiful women, but are known to morph into swans, snakes, horses, or wolves."
(Here we have the snake again…)
As for Inukashi, I could imagine that whatever… A werewolf raped a witch (or they had an affair) and that witch was Inukashi’s mother, but got scared about the consequences and brought the baby into the forest to leave it there. It was raised by other wolves or dogs or some other creatures in the forest, but their magical blood is strong, and Inukashi can’t ignore that they are a half-blood.
As for Nezumi, I think his parents were a wizard and a Veela and like someone mentioned earlier, they were killed by wizards (maybe even “Voldemort-lab-coat-man”). They wanted Nezumi, to experiment with him, since he’s the first male half Veela. But maybe another old Veela helped him and they fled into the forest… where the old Veela taught him that he’s not allowed to trust wizards, that his Veela blood is stronger, that his mother was a fool to get involved with wizards and that her death was the price she had to pay. But that it’s not Nezumi’s fault, since he’s just a child, that’s why she can’t hate him. But she died when he’s 10 and he has to live alone, and the other creatures call him Nezumi, since his hair and eyes are grey and he’s acting like a little mouse to survive in the forest. (At least until he is old enough to fight.) He and Inukashi know each other… and maybe they also give each other jobs…
One day, he tries to control a storm, but it got out of his control and disturbed some…freakish dangerous creature that injures him and tries to get rid of him. He’s able to flee… and meets Shion in Hagrid’s hut outside of Hogwarts castle. Shion sneaked out to test his invisibility cloak and whatever…our No. 6 Hagrid is gone… ^^° Since the storm was really horrible, he decided to stay in the hut and let Nezumi in, treated him, cooked him a little bathtub full of tea and stuff like that. Nezumi uses magic without knowing it, something like…cooling his tea with help of magic, without knowing it… And Shion tells him: “Yo, Nezumi, you’re a wizard! O.o”
Well, then they separate again and when they are 16, Shion gets in danger (I mean it’s Hogwarts, so there are enough reasons…) and Nezumi helps him. Or Shion wants to meet him and runs into the forest where Nezumi has to save him, because everything in ther wants to kill Shion.
(After a short period of denial, Nezumi started to learn magic by himself… maybe he even sneaked into Hogwarts to learn, and since Rou is the headmaster, he knows it, but he let Nezumi do as he likes, since he’s the headmaster and knows everything and whatever. X’D I mean Rou likes Nezumi. Maybe he even…gives him a wand, like leaving one next to Nezumi’s hideout. And Nezumi can defend himself better with magic. While students just learn DADA, he actually has to fight against evil creatures.)
Nezumi could enter the school through pipes… maybe there are pipes from the lake and he can get in there as a snake, since Veelas can morph into snakes. And he should live close to the sea, since Veelas like bodies of water.
When we follow the story of No. 6, Shion has to leave Hogwarts… and then he’ll meet Inukashi in the forest… and Safu comes to search for Shion, but gets captured…for whatever reason and throw her into Askaban… XD And they have to rescue her (and this time she’s not going to die!).
(And when Shion and Nezumi are in the prison… their patronus start to change.)

Yeah, but it's not like they're just gonna send a student in the woods just because they get expelled. They'd rather send them back to their parents xD

Except ... Let's imagine in Shion's fifth year, Rashi shows up as Umbridge, telling the students all things about how magical creatures are lesser than they are, dangerous and murderous, etc. Shion, of course, is gonna try to tell them otherwise without telling them too much about Nezumi, ending in detention and a forced warning from Rou. That's what get's ultimately Nezumi's attention that there's something going on and that Shion might be in danger.
In Shion's sixth year, Rou is suddenly brought to Askaban and the headmaster position given to Fennec. The teaching schedule is drastically changed and Shion can't stand what they learn now and tries again to tell them otherwise, leading to him being expelled from the school and since the minister is now Lab-Coat (aka Voldemort), he gets send into the woods as a warning for all other students who might want to rebel too (with the reasoning - if you're so sure that magical creatures aren't like we're teaching you, see how they treat you once you're within their home). And that's where he meets Nezumi again.

That would also factor in that Rou is in the same building as Safu when Nezumi and Shion get there - Askaban.

OK I'm writing this while reading so this might look weird and I might say things that were already said. I disagree with things and I really want to see the discussion going in a different direction but I missed the whole thing TT^TT

Houses: yes, I see where you're coming from about Nezumi in Slytherin, but consider this: No. 6 people are 'pure blood' (excuse me I read it in my native language and I'm translating directly from that, so I might be saying the terms incorrectly) and West Block people are not. So that would make it impossible for Nezumi to be in Slytherin. I have to admit I imagine Safu in Slytherin, because she's an elite, and she love perfection. I'd see Shion in Ravenclaw,, because he's curious, and Inukashi at Gryffindor. This leaves Nezumi to Hufflepuff, which I think would work 'cause i don't thinl he'd really care.
It's been a while since I read Harry Potter, but I really can't see Nezumi as a Slytherin. Not all Slytherin people are bad, and I think Safu would make a great Slytherin student. Also- SafuKashi with Inukashi being scared of Safu's parents not approving Safu's relationship with a mudblood while Safu doesn't really care? sign me up on that.
Also snakes eat mice so no Nezumi in Slytherin.

Favorite subjects: Nezumi- nothing (or any class he has with Shion) Shion- something theoretical I'd say. Like a type of history? Whatever class that lets him be creative with magic. Safu- potions (because I imagine Safu as the not-direct-opposite of me and I'm a physics person so Safu is a chemistry person). Inukashi- magical creatures things.

Patronus: Nezumi mouse Inukashi dog Safu wasp Shion deer (no particular reason for that one...)

i'm sorry i kinda skipped and skimmed lots of it cause i wanted to be back on track so I might have missed some important analysis.

Post by: Vox on February 21, 2015, 11:59:44 am
@AoYokai actually, I really like the idea of Slytherin Safu. And Hufflepuff Nezumi XD
You kinda totally overturned what we said about the houses previously... I wonder if we'll actually come to a consensus XD
Ravenclaw Shion is still a good idea in my opinion... and Gryffindor Inukashi if we still want one in each house, otherwise Inukashi can stay in Hufflepuff.

I still disagree about the whole Nezumi/mouse patronus thing. I'm still voting snake.
Title: Re: HP/Hogwarts AU
Post by: listenforthelove on February 21, 2015, 12:16:54 pm
Pff, yeah, I guess the whole sorting is a lot harder than it seems at first sight. I don't remember who suggested it, but maybe that 'answering quizzes pretending to be one of the characters' is not such a bad idea after all XD; I guess we can say for certain that certain characters don't fit in certain houses (e.g. no-one's suggested Ravenclaw for Inukashi or Slytherin for Shion), but otherwise... haha let's take a vote XD Oh well. We can have fifty different AUs because never too many AUs! (Or is that just me? Right? Okay I'll show myself out.)

@Aoyokai: what way did you want to turn the discussion in? House-wise or different things to discuss? Because I'm sure we can still do that! I mean, I don't think so far any two people have disagreed on houses for all characters, so...

But yeah I don't think anyone was suggesting Slytherin for Nezumi because it being the 'bad house' or 'pureblood' (though depending on when this AU would be set - post-Deathly Hallows, Slytherin started to take in half-bloods and Muggle borns, right? I'm not entirely sure where I read that but I was pretty sure that was the case?). More like - cunning, ambition and resourcefulness do all fit Nezumi. Though of course, no-one fits one house 100% - obviously, see all the posts above XD Slytherin Safu is an interesting idea, hmmm.

Safu liking Potions is something I can totally get behind, because it seems to be very text book based and rational - do x and y in this quantity and result is z. I think she might enjoy that?

Yeah, I'm with @Vox with Nezumi's patronus being a snake... I feel like mouse/rat would be too - well, convenient too, but it's a name he was given, not necessarily what he might consider his protective animal. Or however that even works with patronuses - it doesn't seem you can really influence its shape consciously? I don't know, I haven't caught up on Pottermore in years, so if anything has been revealed there I'm out of the loop, oops.

Post by: Weisel on February 21, 2015, 12:48:29 pm
I think part of the issue on agreement is that we're all thinking a little differently on how everyone would be... Like, canon universe characters would sort differently than characters that grew up in the wizarding world. For example, the deal with Shion not feeling compassion for Nezumi and only curiosity when he showed up in the window, he'd grown up never experiencing any kind of suffering, nor actually experiencing it himself. He's been forced to be completely detached from that kind of situations, so maybe if he'd grown up outside of No.6's elite system, he might think differently at age 11. (I mean, he acts totally differently in the West Block say when Rico is choking on that nut...) That's my thought, anyway. And I don't actually expect us to all agree on houses for everyone. :)

I just don't like the Slytherin=bad stereotype. Yes, most bad people came from Slytherin, but it doesn't mean they're all bad. That's why I'd like to see Safu as Slytherin rather than Nezumi. I just feel like Nezumi is only Slytherin on the surface, but not on the inside. Safu would be a great example for the opposite- doesn't fit the stereotype of Slytherin, but she's a Slytherin on the deeper level. In my opinion...

Thinking about it again (as I said, I skimmed through this whole thing) snake would fit Nezumi better. I still want to find something better though...

@Weisel Nezumi being bullied by some Slytherin students (I imagine he would have a similar background story to Volde-however-you-spell-it-in-English only completely mudblood) and Shion letting him into the Hufflepuff dorms to hide, which might be against the rules (i don't remember) and then they both get detention and that's how they meet? Also, it's the first time Shion is exposed to discrimination of mudbloods and yeah...

Would you look at that. I tried taking the pottermore quiz as Shion and I got 77% Hufflepuff, 60% Ravenclaw, 55% Gryffindor, and 15% Slytherin--
Here's the link if you guys are curious and want to try for yourselves: http://www.gotoquiz.com/pottermore_sorting_quiz_all_possible_question (http://www.gotoquiz.com/pottermore_sorting_quiz_all_possible_question)
H-HUFFLEPUFF!?

That does bring up an interesting question-- I can see Shion digging the animals. Not as much as Inukashi, but he's still got that thrill for living things. The box question was kind of interesting to me because even though there was a box with the mark of merlin and one with a thing that said "I open for the worthy" I don't think Shion would hesitate to immediately go for the box that had the LIVING THING inside of it. I feel like for Shion living creatures are always going to trump the pursuit of knowledge or bravery. MAYBE.

I'm not the biggest fan of using the pottermore questions for fictional characters though-- I feel like they're the sort of questions that can kind of vary A LOT from interpretation to interpretation. It's interesting to think about though!

Hnnngh but that's why Hogwarts AUs are so great-- plenty of alternate (And still totally viable!) character interpretations! BRING ON THE AUs.

The way I see it, if they're thought out beyond "Well Shion's a cutie so he's Hufflepuff" or "Shion's a smartie so he's Ravenclaw"  or "Nezumi can be an **** so he's Slytherin"-- I'll be able to get behind anything-- and that'll still be just as 'correct' as any of my own head canons.


I see Nezumi as Slytherin because for him I see cunning as greater than the pursuit of knowledge.
It's not a bad thing to be a Slytherin! In fact, I think Slytherin's are the most practical of all the houses and Nezumi would fit right in. Of course in terms of character GROWTH I feel like Nezumi's VERY cunning already and Slytherin would serve to help him grow in that and run the risk of making him cross that boundary of cunning vs. manipulative.
That's why a lot of dangerous people come from Slytherin-- they are smart-- not always classically so, and they learn to embrace that.

That's why if you go into Slytherin as a morally ambiguous person you're gonna leave it morally ambiguous and knowing how to USE it. Which is why some sketch people come from Slytherin. But it's not a bad house! It's just a sharp house.

I think Safu could totally fit right in--

I HAVE MORE TO SAY BUT I have to run so I don't get to finish this post and reply more specifically.

I'm not so sure about that Nezumi and Slytherin thing. Sure he was the best at many things but it was because he had to learn them to survive in such environment that was West Block and rest on NO.6 hell. As kid he wanted to travel and sing. As older he often spend his free time with books that he love.
Both he and Shion are smart to remember so many lines from so many books. Nezumi is really smart but he give feeling like, if he gone to school, he wouldn't care for grades and slack off. So Ravenclaw wouldn't be so bad idea.

If he meet with Shion before school he might just wanted to go to that house because Shion was choosed there.
Little Nezumi could meet Shion year or more before after his parents got killed, the might been wizards, and Shion helped and feed him him. Karan can be mugole. Both of them let Nezumi stay in their house but Nezumi disappear after few dats because he didn't want them be mixed in danger things from wizard world. No one yet know that Shion have power too.
they meet again in first day of school at Hogward.
At ceremony Shion was first choose into Ravenclaw and Nazumi when put hat on his head wanted to be with Shion there and that happened.
With time everyone were wondering why Nezumi is there if he such lazy parson (for Ravenclaw level) when in comes to study (still he get middle good grades). He won't tell about it even Shion until a lot later when they 16 and starting to realize they have deeper feelings for each other.       

Safu better fit Sytherin because she always thought about herself first then others (that's feeling I got about her since that scene when she say she don't care what Shion would wanted, she going to do what she wants).

Okay, I tried to make the test for all of them:
78% Hufflepuff – Shion (followed by Gryffindor)
78% Ravenclaw – Safu (followed by Slytherin)
83% Gryffindor – Inukashi (followed by Hufflepuff)
72% Ravenclaw – Nezumi (followed by Slytherin)

Weird... I chose other things for Nezumi and Safu... o_o° But it doesn't differ that much from my first analysis. (Shion - Gryffindor/Hufflepuff,  Safu - Ravenclaw/ok I forgot the other choice...but I think it was rather Hufflepuff... Inukashi - Hufflepuff/Gryffindor, Nezumi - Slytherin/Ravenclaw)

Post by: Meopat on February 21, 2015, 08:01:20 pm
Wow, there's so much discussion about houses! :D

Personally, I feel like they can really fit anywhere. I think we forget that you can also /ask/ to be placed in a certain house (like what Harry did; I don't know if that was just an example of being brave so it automatically equated to him being in Gryffindor - someone posted the tumblr theory earlier about how the three main characters in HP had traits that would've suited the other houses, but they were placed in Gryffindor possibly simply because they were brave enough to make that request.)

but to be honest, I can actually kind of see Shion as a Slytherin too. Thaaat is if you're basing his character from the novels. Saaaay, his infamous line: "Destroy everything." Nezumi's also always accusing him of using words of kindness that are empty and self-serving. (but that's a small example, Harry's also shown Slytherin traits multiple times. Can the AU have a portion where the sorting hat is just like, "wow, you're so versatile, idk where to put you. :l" and then maybe Shion freaking sighs because he's not even thinking about the sorting, he's thinking about those grey eyes he say one night and the sorting hat's just like, "ok, we'll just put you where he is then." ) I'm personally also thrilled by the idea of Shion and Safu being childhood friends, expecting to get into the same house, then they're not and Safu's devastated. )

@Meopat: yes yes yes on Shion and Safu being childhood friends who thought they'd end up in the same house! That would make sense, since they grew up in the same environment and everything, but they're still different people. Of course, some of the sortings above put them in the same house anyway, but I really like this one, goodness. (Shion ending up in Nezumi's house because of his own super subtlety re: those grey eyes is also pretty darn great omigosh.)

I guess the only option if we want to make it one big overarching AU here is to let majority rule through the polls re: the houses, since there can be cases made (and have been made) for nearly everyone in nearly every house, huh... ideally that would mean everyone would have to compromise somewhere, but not too much that they'd feel shut out.

@meopet: harry's suggestion was taken into account by the sorting hat because he didnt want to be in slytherin. It wasnt an cample of bravery, but of also wanting to be with his friends, who were also in gryffindor (though that wasnt his main purpose since he said "not slytherin, not slytherin."

Anywho, I believe that this could go something sort of like the Marauder's story instead of the golden trios! Because Inukashi is a werewolf like Lupin, and there are three other main students (Shion, Nezumi and Safu!) and they would go through te process of becoming an animagus for Inukashi so that she doesnt feel left out and secluded from everyone for having her being a werewolf a secret.

@kinsdura: You're right! I really need to go back and refresh my HP knowledge. T_T

I think some people inferred that "being able to make a request of the sorting hat" (whether it's: 'I want to be in Gryffindor!' or 'Not Slytherin'!) as a sign of being brave because you're trying to take fate into your own hands instead of letting the Sorting Hat decide for you. (also, it takes courage to ask for things! ... at least, that's the case with me. orz)

And omg, would Nezumi take the role of Sirius? The sorely misunderstood and imprisoned one? XD

@Meopat: bRO YEAH nezumi would so be the one to take the rule of sirius! Though i'm sure no one would be like Peter since none of them would betray each other.

But YES like if we had to compare, the James in the group would probably be Shion, so just imagine Shion saying something out there like "what if you put a werewolf on the moon? infinite werewolf?" And Nezumi would just say that the werewolf would "die without the proper equipment on yOU MONSTER" and safu would just interject saying that the effects would be the same because the moon still has phases regardless if they're on the moon or not, and inukashi is just kind of trying to fugure out the right time to hit one of them for possibly thinking of sending her to the moon in the first place.

Okay, by popular vote, 75% of us think Safu would be in Ravenclaw, and the rest of us think it would be Slytherin.
I've changed the poll to be about Nezumi. Please vote!

Here's the question... do they have a/the Maurauders' Map, or other teacher-detection item? Because I feel like that's the sort of thing Safu would make... Also I'm imagining some Hermione-like adventures with the Polyjuice potion...

I would say that, to make it easier to write about with regular HP fandom knowledge, they would have the Marauder's Map, however, I like to think Safu is really good at charms and stuff, so she made a looking eyeglass that allows you to see whomever you wish at the castle. Though it has the flaw of being able to be sneaked up on by someone you arent looking for, it also has the added bonus that it can only activate when one of the main four are holding it (activation is by touch, sort of similar to how the Snitch work.)

Also, I would like to think that Shion acquired the Invisibility cloak from his mom when she found it at a muggle store for a cheap price. (She claims that no one wanted it because it was so ugly but she found it felt like home to her.)

@Kinsdura Oh I like the Safu looking glass idea. That's p. great.
Lol it's a good thing Shion has the invisibility cloak, because if it were Nezumi or even Inukashi, very bad things would happen.

Also, sorry it took me so long to wrap up the Nezumi poll, but popular vote puts him in Slytherin. Next up is Shion! :3

Thank you!! And yeah, if Nezumi or Inukashi ever got ahold of it when Shion wasn't there they would probably pull pranks on Rikage XD
