‘I bet you pick up guys like this all the time,’ said Owen as he climbed in and shut the door.
‘It’s the car,’ Jack smiled. ‘Everyone digs the car.’
The SUV surged forward. ‘So, where are you taking me tonight?’ Owen inquired politely. ‘Dinner? Pictures? Underground car park?’
‘It’s a surprise.’
A chain-link fence flashed by, topped by old plastic bags caught on the barbed wire and fluttering in the wind.
‘Charming spot,’ Owen remarked.
‘Industrial estate,’ said Jack. ‘Weevil country.’

sort the companions too maybe? :)))

i was practically falling asleep as i wrote the one last night, so i had to wait until now, i’m afraid, but i’m ALWAYS A SLUT FOR DW HOGWARTS AUS

rose is definitely gryffindor to me, she always fights for what she believes in, and, obviously, she is incredibly brave. i’ve seen her sorted into hufflepuff which i guess works because she’s protective of the doctor and her family, but her actions are certainly more gryffindor, and she definitely values bravery as well. (if i were using the @sortinghatchats method, i’d say she’s hufflepuff primary gryffindor secondary)

jack is difficult, because he has quite a few aspects of all the houses, but overall i think i’d go with slytherin for him - the ways he saves the world in torchwood are often doing something bad for the ‘greater good’ (e.g. killing his grandson), and he has the slytherin trait that i love so much of not necessarily caring about everyone, but he has a few people close to him that he would unleash hell on anyone who tried to hurt them. also, he’s cunning and manipulative, and i’d say he was quite ambitious before becoming immortal.

the obvious choice for martha would be ravenclaw (and i actually sorted her there in my now dead and buried hogwarts au ask blog), but i think hufflepuff suits her slightly better. her main priority is her family, she was incredibly loyal to the doctor (which blinded her for a while, stopping her realising how much of a dick he was), she was kind to all the minor characters, and she’s very hard working. then again, i feel like she may be more likely to choose ravenclaw, so who knows.

i’ve always thought of donna as a hufflepuff, and that hasn’t changed, but i think she has quite a few ravenclaw tendencies as well. she definitely values kindness, is very protective of her family (even if she won’t admit it in the case of her mum), and she has a very loyal friendship with the doctor. she is also hard-working, as shown by her mission to find the doctor again in ‘partners in crime’, but that could also show that she’s inquisitive, hence the ravenclaw tendencies.

amy, rory and river are gryffindor, hufflepuff and slytherin, respectively. i don’t have detailed arguments for these three but i really don’t think i need to, they are the epitomes of their houses tbh.

ive sorted clara into every house before; after s7 i was like 'i… don’t…… know…….. but maybe hufflepuff??’ which we now know is incredibly incorrect lmao. after s8 i was very adamant that she was slytherin, but then after s9 im realising she has quite a few gryffindor traits. overall though, definitely slytherin. the scene in dark water when she tries to get danny back is 300% slytherin, and she would almost certainly risk everything to save the doctor à la heaven sent. i think there was a line in hide when That Woman was practically dying because of the metebilis 3 crystal, but the doctor was still in the pocket universe, and That Guy was like 'she can’t do it’ and clara said 'SHE HAS TO!’ which is super slytherin. she’s also manipulative, as shown in that scene, and her scenes with bonnie, and i’d say she was quite ambitious, particularly in the way she tried to keep up her normal life and her tardis life. the gryffindor recklessness only really came about because of danny’s death, so i think naturally she’s slytherin.

while bill was still in the queue to be sorted, the hat went 'right, she’s probably a ravenclaw. could be a hufflepuff though. a few gryffindor traits.’ then the hat touched the top of her afro and screamed 'RAVENCLAW!’ and that was that. she’s just!! so!! inquisitive!!! and so eager to learn!!!! the doctor is literally teaching her everything, she asks a million questions (that aren’t even necessarily relevant) every episode, she picks up on the tiny details (such as the bugs being a weird present in 'knock knock’), and once she’s interested in something she wants to know everything about it (the ninth legion). as a lesbian ravenclaw, i welcome this lesbian into ravenclaw.
