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
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.
But
AH
HOGWARTS.
Ahhhh.
