I WAS JUST HAVING THIS ISSUE!!! I'm messing with a Hogwarts AU in my head, and Roy is a problem for me. Riza a bit too, but that's a different story. First I thought Slytherin for Roy for the reasons you so thoughtfully illustrated, and then I'm like ugh not quite. I kinda see him in Gryffindor if not Slytherin but I'm so torn. I mean I put Ling in Slytherin because he's ambitious and he doesn't care AS much as Roy about others (but still does ie. Lab Fan). Pretty much I'm so here for this.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE RIZA WOULD BE SORTED. In the art I referenced in my post, she was a Hufflepuff, which I can totally see, but Riza is also extremely Gryffindor for me? I don’t know, man. I don’t know. 

LING IS SUCH A SLYTHERIN. He very literally fused with the sentient manifestation of greed, of all things. I mean.

He’s the perfect example of a Slytherin who ultimately has a kind heart, I think. I could see Ling as a Gryffindor as well. I guess he’s like Harry, teetering in between based on characteristics but ultimately falling into one because of values. 

Yo, if you ever turn this AU into a fic, let me know because I am very down to read it. Harry Potter and FMA are my two favorite things in the world.

Roy is such a pickle. So you think it’s between Gryffindor and Slytherin? I feel like Roy embodies Hufflepuff as far as hard work and loyalty, but I also see Hufflepuffs as somewhat gentle people? And I think about Roy torturing Envy for two straight episodes and think, “Tonks and Cedric would never.”

Gryffindor and Slytherin seem more within Roy’s character. AHHGHSOAFGJH ROY, GO ON POTTERMORE AND MAKE YOUR WHOLE TEAM TAKE THE TEST.
