HP/Hogwarts AU
« 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.)

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. ^^

@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?

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.

@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~

@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

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?

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?

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.

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!

@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.
