Hogwarts Houses When Scared
  • for anon
  • Gryffindor: thinks of the stakes, and what they're challenging. They seek support in memories of loved ones, and try to convince themselves they must face their fear
  • Slytherin: reviews backup plans, and what they would do if everything goes terribly. They try not to show their fear, knowing others can use it, but they confide in those closest to them
  • Ravenclaw: tries to reason out their fear, checking if it's rational, and seeing what they can do about it. They tend to understand that they're afraid and deal with it as soon as possible
  • Hufflepuff: retrace everything they've done, and see if they have truly done the best they could. They try to be logical and objective, but don't feel shame in admitting they're afraid

Sherlock characters Hogwarts houses (Opinion list)

Always that disclaimer of “disagree If you must, just don’t think I care enough to argue about it”. Enjoy.


Sherlock: I’ve gone over this many times but I guess I’ll go over it once again. A lot of people assume that he is a Ravenclaw because he’s smart. False. Sherlock Holmes is a textbook Slytherin. Yes he’s smart, but he’s smart about what HE likes to know. In the books for example he doesn’t care to even know that earth revolves around the sun & he even goes as far to say that he doesn’t care to even remember the fact. A Ravenclaw would NOT act like that. Sherlock is just a snarky, sarcastic, SOB who has very singleminded goals and aspirations. He isn’t a bookworm if the book doesn’t pertain to what he’s doing at the moment.

Mycroft Holmes: He’s fantastic for a sarcastic one liner. He’s like Sherlock but he’s even more of an asshole in my opinion. He and Sherlock constantly try to one up each other, but they don’t have similar goals necessarily so it never gets too rough. Totally a Slytherin.

Mary Watson: Two words… DECEIVED EVERYONE. She’s fantastic. Also very resourceful and has straightforward goals / aspirations.


John Watson: He’s brave, daring & it takes a bit of recklessness to follow after Sherlock. Absolutely brilliant friend. I just feel like Gryffindors would do the John thing and just make faces if they disagreed 😂

Greg Lestrade: Also a very obvious Gryffindor. Courageous and daring. He’s very friendly and seems like he would be popular with other humans.


Mrs. Hudson: She’s just a cute little puff. Ya gotta love Mrs. Hudson. Fave. PLUS she just kind of loves Sherlock & that’s just a cute little like family Slytherin/hufflepuff thing ya feel ❤️

Mixed houses…

Molly Hooper: This is only based on the show BECAUSE THERE IS NO MOLLY HOOPER IN THE FREAKING BOOKS. Anyways… she’s like a mix between Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. She’s absolutely brilliant at what she does so I’ll credit that to Ravenclaw. She’s got hufflepuff traits too though like she’s loyal (even when Sherlock is awful to her lol), she’s a hard worker, she’s V PATIENT (with Sherlock again lol). Like idk she’s both in my mind. She doesn’t fit in just one house.

Jim Moriarty: This is gonna be an unpopular opinion to many because he’s the bad guy… but I wouldn’t say he’s 100% Slytherin. Like yes his goal is to beat Sherlock, but he’s kinda brilliant and he’s got the cocky thing from Gryffindor. So like he’s a Gryffindor/Slytherin/Ravenclaw. He’s so calculated and ingenious, but again he’s a cocky bastard & he’s very straightforward with his goals aka he has one goal in a sense.


Anderson and Sally: I loath them. They don’t deserve to go to Hogwarts.

The Houses as Music Things

Hufflepuff: A chorus of multiple voices. The warm strum of a guitar. Words that get stuck in your head. A note held over several beats. Tambourines. The fading of a song into silence. Feet tapping to the rhythm. A song that makes you want to dance. 

Gryffindor: Drums beating steadily in the background. Quick, excited lyrics. A solo trumpet. Someone humming in the background. Low, husky voices. The explosion of sound as a song begins. Clapping. A song that makes you want to cheer.

Slytherin: The sound of a single violin opening a song. Slight variations in the wording of the chorus. A voice hitting the high notes. Clever lyrics that are missed unless one listens closely. The whisper of a singer taking a breath. A song that makes you want to smile.

Ravenclaw: Echoing, breathless voices. The long pause just before the music swells. Piano keys chasing the melody. A slow crescendo in sound. Duets. The vibrato of a practiced voice. Flutes trilling like birds. A song that makes you want to dream.

Slytherin: she got mad because I didn’t give her enough attention.
Hufflepuff: is it allowed to get mad because of that?
Ravenclaw: I would spend half of my life mad at people


I really hate when you say something Harry Potter related and someone does the whole “ITS NOT IN THE BOOKS SO WHY DOES IT MATTER??!!!”“

Like can’t you just appreciate the movies as a separate thing?? Seriously??

Yes it wasn’t in the books.

But people are allowed to talk about it, don’t get your knickers in a twist.

ID #32096

Name: Marco
Age: 17 to 18
Country: Spain

I love adventures, hate routine, have never found any sense in rules and dogs bless my entire existence. I travel a lot due to my parent’s job; some of my favorite places are Iceland, Peru and my kitchen, where my mum hides the rare and precious chocolate. I would like to study graphic design, art or history.
I like reading absolutely anything; from Harry Potter (Gryffindor!) to Shakespeare (King Lear makes me cry). My parents have made my music taste by long car drives listening to Queen, Louis Armstrong and Beethoven, so pretty much like any good song. I will play the same song on repeat for a week and, for some reason, from all the meaningful songs in the entire world my favorite one is “Feliz Navidad” glee version. I don’t know, it makes me happy and I love Christmas. I like playing sports but I am actually bad at it. It’s just for fun really. I enjoy art, nature and lasagna.
I have really bad ideas more often than I’ll like to admit and I easily get in trouble. But I like to help others and I would say I give good advice, even if I never follow them. I have a really open mind and terrible taste in humor and clothes.
I speak Spanish and English and like two sentences in french so…

Preferences: Nah. Just no Racist/sexist/homophobes/dead brought back to life by an evir wizard or an evil wizard.
Also we don’t have to share same sack interest

Headcanon Ravenclaws, Hufflepuffs, and Slytherins commonly go into one another’s dorms to hang out. Slytherin Prefects hand Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff Prefects slips of paper with the updated passwords. Hufflepuff Prefects draw out the sequence you need to hit the barrels with. Ravenclaw is easy af to break into, but someone’s there to help if you get stuck. 

Gryffindors are the only ones who think it’s against the rules to go into another houses dorm. 

Gryffindor As Favourites
  • Animal: Now, I know you'd expect a lion. But the thing is lions just run around hunting stuff. (No lionphobia)But you know which animals are brave? Zebras. Yes, I'm going there. Hear me out. Zebras go through life as prey, cross rivers full of crocodiles, and regularly run from predators. That's either gotta require bravery, or stupidity. And to be honest, considering our patron saints are Albus "Calmly" Dumbledore and Harry the Boy who was Oblivious, stupidity is in our ancestry.
  • Colour: to be honest, I think red and gold are good choices. They're bold. Alternatively, I think neon and hot pink would fit our reckless and bold house.
  • Song: I think something like "the Best Day of My Life" by American Authors or "Viva la Viva" by Coldplay would fit. Both songs are epic and seem to have a bigger, beyond theme that fits the adventurous side of Gryffindor.
  • Movie: HARRY POTTER! No, just kidding. :) I actually think that there are three classic movies that might apply to Gryffindor: "Peter Pan", "Alice in Wonderland", and "The Wizard of Oz". All three involve a daring adventure in which our hero/heroine/protagonist is whisked off to a magical and strange land. These could also work for Ravenclaw, because they exercise the imagination.
