|Fandom Sorting Meme

Stolen from Kat
Ask me a fandom from my list and I will sort at least 5 characters from that fandom into the four Hogwarts houses.
A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones
Crime and Punishment
Gone with the Wind
How the Steel Was Tempered
Once Upon a Time
Pirates of the Caribbean
Queer as Folk
War and Peace
Institute for Noble Maidens
I'll pick Sherlock BBC and Star Wars
Sherlock - Ravenclaw
Mycroft - Ravenclaw (with a Slytherin tendency there and here)
John - Hufflepuff
Molly - Hufflepuff
Moriarity - Slytherin (regretfully; it's people like him that give this house a bad name)
Obi-Wan - Gryffindor
Qui-Gon - Hufflepuff
Palpatine - Slytherin
Count Dooku - Ravenclaw
Anakin - Gryffindor (amazingly - I almost went with Hufflepuff too,but I think the brashness and wanting to be someone are more Gryffindor traits. Like Moriarty is all that is wrong with Slytherin, Ani is all that is right with Gryffindor, IMO)

Moriarty is Slytherin, yes. So is LV. Some people in my house really need waking up. I might put Sherlock in Slytherin if he wasn't so enamoured of his own mind.
Anakin yes yes yes
Palpatine, so ambiguous, hard to tell his motivations, just makes him more Slytherin.
Some people in my house really need waking up.
What do you mean?
I don't think Sherlock really fits Slytherin that well. He has some ambition (ie: solve ALL the cases1) but everyone has some sort of ambition, and he's already best at what he does, so it's hard to attribute ambition to that. Also, his cleverness seems to be more of a Ravenclaw sort.

Hmm. I agree with all your Sherlock sortings except for Mycroft. He's obviously very intelligent and values cleverness, but he's also ambitious in his own way I think, and definitely interested in power, and exceptionally cunning - I think his temperament/choices are more Slytherin, with intelligence in the service of other things, where Sherlock values intelligence for its own sake.
Very interesting meme!
Perhaps you're right, he does have a very Slytherin quality to him. I think I just didn't want to put him into the same house (read: category) as Moriarty. But then again, I think this just goes to show once again how diverse the houses are and how the various house traits can manifest themselves differently and to different ends in different people.
