Okay, now I'm curious.

In my Sorthing Hat Poll, most people ticked Hufflepuff and/or Ravenclaw. Some ticked the tickybox choice. None of these were a surprise.

Why did some people click Gryffindor? More to the point, why did indigocat check Slytherin?

I wouldn't call you Slytherin, but you are very good at getting things done, and if you were a Hufflepuff you wouldn't mind housework.



I don't think I know a single Griffyndor. How much bravery is required of us day to day? Baruch Hashem, life is safe enough for us that we don't often have to display our bravery.

There are many forms of bravery. One, for example, is to completely change your way of life even if it goes against your upbringing.

I'd say you're brave.

Me, I just do what has to be done. I think that's Hufflepuff.



Well, by those standards, you'd be in Griffyndor, too. Aren't you a BT?

I suppose. But none of the Houses are pure. Look at the characters in the books. Percy has proven his bravery (he fought as hard as his older brothers in GoF), his ambition, his intelligence and his ability to work hard. He'd have fit in any House, but as a Weasley he could only be a Gryffindor. Hermione could as well, if she weren't a Muggleborn - she may not be ambitious, but she is clever.

Cedric Diggory was quite brave and very noble.



I'd really like to see a good Slytherin for variety. I suspect it will be that kid who could also see the thestrals.

Phineas Nigellus. Severus Snape - he's not a nice man, but he's not an evil one, either.

Terrence Nott might well be "good." And, you know. I hold out hope for Draco. Not so much out of a hope for redemption, but out of enlightened self-interest.

Because of your fic. Considering some of the things that you do to the characters in your fic, you'd may a great Slytherian. Especially longer fics, things seem to be going well, then wham, there is angst. Slytherin is a very good thing in a writer. It keeps us coming back for more.

Plus, I hold you responisble for getting me to read Harry Potter. You dangled Beautiful Boy in front of my noise, and I was hooked.

Ah. So, my stories are evil. That's not so terrible. :)

Got another long one in the works right now.
