Tbh everyone says Dip should be a Ravenclaw but I think that's wrong. He's smart, sure, but he also doesn't care about having to get his hands dirty if he needs to. He'd def be a Slytherin.
@headful-of-feathers requested me awhile ago to make a post explaining why I feel Slytherin fits the best for Dip in terms of Hogwarts Houses. I was just gonna make a separate post about it, but this ask has given me an opening.
First, let’s start off by destroying the stigma surrounding all ‘smart’ characters belonging to Ravenclaw House. That’s not true; just look at Hermione Granger who was indeed at the top of her classes and valued intelligence but belonged to Gryffindor House. Being kind, smart, brave, or ambitious doesn’t mean you instantly belong to a House with those qualities respectively. That’s stereotypical, and the Sorting Hat judges much deeper than that.
So, I’m going much deeper than that.
