Selection Characters sorted into their Hogwarts Houses

So I’ve seen a lot of other fandoms do this, and I don’t believe I’ve seen anyone else do this (correct me if I’m wrong) but I’d like to sort our favorite selected and royals into their hogwarts houses! Me and @skylars-selection worked very hard, and credit to her for having great input! I’m basing these off of the house descriptions and if you have anything to add, anything you think should be changed, or anything at all, feel free to add onto this post! Without further ado…

(It will be formatted like this:)
Character: house: reason why:

America Singer/ Schreave: Gryffindor: She’s very daring and brave, often known for doing stupid things.

Maxon Schreave: Hufflepuff: Maxon is incredibly patient with America and he’s a very hard worker.

Aspen Leger: Gryffindor: Aspen is daring, brave (he risks his life as a guard) and he has hella a lot of nerve.

Lucy Leger: Hufflepuff: Lucy has been working to survive since she was a young girl, she’s very loyal to America, and she works very hard at everything she does.

Kriss Ambers: Ravenclaw: She’s very intelligent, I mean she was a part of the rebels and was able to infiltrate the selection without anyone realizing. She’s also very witty.

Celeste Newsome: Slytherin: Celeste is so cunning and ambitious, she was able to get innocent little Maxon into a full on make-out session. She had a huge plan for how to win the selection and was close to winning.

Marlee Tames/ Woodwork: Gryffindor: My original thought was Hufflepuff but one of their main qualities is loyalty and… well you know why that doesn’t work. I think she’s a Gryffindor because she was very brave and daring to be with Carter and take that canning. (Sky thinks she should be Hufflepuff still.)

Carter Woodwork: Gryffindor: He’s risking his life as a guard and also by having an affair with a selected. This just makes sense.

Elise Whisks: Slytherin: Elise was raised from birth to be intelligent and she’s very driven to be perfect, even though it isn’t her choice.

Clarkson Schreave: Slytherin: Not to enforce the whole “Slytherins are evil trope” but Clarkson is very ambitious, hungry for power, and he’s also very cunning.

Amberly Schreave: Hufflepuff: Amberly is loyal beyond belief to her husband, even after he cheats (although she might not have known, it’s still remarkable she stayed by him through everything he has likely done. She must’ve suspected something) and she was originally a 4, and she valued hard work.

Eadlyn Schreave/ Koskinen: Slytherin: Eady is ambitious and driven to be great, granted it’s because she has big shoes to fill, but I feel like that’s most Slytherins. She’s also very stubborn.

Ahren Schreave: Gryffindor: He acts on impulse, not thinking of consequences. He’s driven to do brave and daring things, and he’s very chivalrous.

Camille de Sauveterre/ Schreave: Hufflepuff: She is pure and loyal to Ahren, going as far to elope with him. Eady says she always appears calm and collected, like stuff doesn’t get to her and she’s just very charming and easy going. (Sky brought up that on the other side of things it takes a lot of poise and intelligence to uphold this demeanor, possibly making her Ravenclaw).

Kaden Schreave: Ravenclaw: Hands down, no doubt in my mind, Kaden is the living embodiment of a Ravenclaw. He has a constant thirst for knowledge and just has a true passion for learning.

Josie Woodwork/ Schreave: Slytherin/ Hufflepuff?: Josie has always been into being in power and claiming the bit of power she does have. However, I’m caught in a crossroad because after she let that go I feel like she’s definitely a Hufflepuff because she works hard to help Eady and she’s loyal. Tell me which you think.

Osten Schreave: Slytherin: Osten is very mischievous and cunning, sneaking around and pranking everyone all the time. He’s driven to create chaos.

Kile Woodwork: Ravenclaw: Kile is very into architecture and learning and being intelligent. He’s also very witty and sarcastic.

Fox Wesley: Hufflepuff: Fox is really good natured and very much go with the flow. He plays fair and always tries to lighten the mood and he’s a hard-worker.

Hale Garner: Gryffindor: He’s a brave dude, I mean when he first met Eady he was very upfront and bold. He also stepped in nobly when the people threw tomatoes at her.

Ean Cabel: Ravenclaw: We don’t know an astounding amount about Ean, but we do know he offered Eady a deal, one logically based instead of passion based. He also got quite a few of the trivia questions right and we know he writes. I would say he’s very intelligent.

Henri Jaakoppi: Hufflepuff: Henri is all around a very easy going, loyal, and patient guy. He works hard to learn English and he’s always so dedicated to his cooking.

Eikko Koskinen: Ravenclaw: He is fluent in two languages, which is no easy feat. He is also incredibly witty and has a very intelligent aspect to him. I also contemplated Hufflepuff for his ability to calm Eady, but I feel Ravenclaw is more accurate. Do you agree?

Marid Illea: Slytherin: I think it’s safe to say that this one is obvious. Marid went far out of his way to try and ‘seduce’ Eady purely for the crown and throne. He even tried convincing the media of it. He’s cunning in his tactics, seeming like a good guy at first before turning when Eadlyn wouldn’t cooperate.

Also, a note. I think a lot of the palace staff are Hufflepuff, due to their hardworking, and I think a lot of palace guards are Gryffindor, due to putting their lives at risk for the royal family; that’s very brave. Of course this isn’t true in every case, just in a general aspect. 

So here is my completed list! Forgive me if I’ve forgotten a character, it’s midnight and I am exhausted. So again, feel free to voice your opinions. I really want to know what you guys think. Is this accurate? Anything that should be changed? Thanks guys!

Selection/ Hamilton crossover

Alright so recently I’ve been thinking a lot about the selection/ Hamilton crossover thing that seems to come up a lot (does everyone in the selection fandom love it? I feel like they do) so I have compiled a list of characters mashups.

Disclaimer: These are based on my opinions and character traits, so the schuyler sisters are not related and genders are not taken into consideration while casting.

Alexander Hamilton- Obviously America Singer, and here’s why: constantly forks up, still precious and loved, tries to do good- ends up doing bad, star of the show. (ex: How does a Singer, red head, 5, and a poor girl, get into the selection for a princes heart? [to the tune of ‘Alexander Hamilton’] there’s a reason I’m not writing musicals lol)

Eliza Schuyler/ Hamilton- Maxon Schreave: is too pure, doesn’t deserve the stuff they put up with- especially from their partner, gets betrayed by lover but forgives them, beautiful. (ex: Do you know what my father said when I told him I was in love? He said I do not approve of her, she will never be a one. [to the tune of ‘Burn’] seriously I’m sorry I’m so bad at writing these crossover things, I should just leave it to people like @prince-consort-erik)

Angelica Schuyler/ Church- Marlee Tames: so good, doesn’t end up with the guy she originally wanted, such a good friend, strong af, willing to do anything for loved ones. (ex: I remember that night, I just might regret that night for the rest of my days. I remember the dancing and good times and smiles on everyone’s face. I remember that dreamlike ballroom, looking like a dream that you cant quite place. But Carter I’ll never forget seeing your face. [to the tune of ‘Satisfied’])

And Peggy- Natalie Luca: totally forgotten after awhile, vry nice, not much to say about either of them? (ex. Natalie confides in me ['Helpless’] sorry peggy doesn’t give me a lot to work with in this one)

John Laurens- Aspen Leger: in love with ham/ ames, soldier, idk I don’t have much reason for this one. (ex. Me? I fought with her. ['Alexander Hamilton’])

Marquis de Lafayette- Princess Nicoletta: European, everyones fav, both beautiful, amazing people, always trying to help our star, besites with ham/ ames, fun drunk. (ex. Give it up for Illea’s favorite Italian Princess! Nicoletta, I’m taking this horse by the reigns, gonna help America win ['Guns and Ships’] I’m actually sorta proud of this one lol) 

Hercules Mulligan- Elise Whisk: is around because of connections, actually an amazing person, not much to say here either it just seems right. (ex. We need someone on the inside that’s right Elise Whisks! gonna create a peace treaty with new asia and win the selection, then shes done. ['Yorktown’] I know I know this was horrible)

Aaron Burr- Kriss Ambers: does something bad, actually an ok person, fandom has mixed feelings about them, some hate them (me honestly), some love them. (ex. Even though we worked like the very same kind, soon the Southern Rebels began to climb. How do we account for the rise, man this group is non stop. ['Non-Stop’] OR It must be nice, it must be nice, to have Maxons heart secured. [Washington on your side’])

George Washington- Queen Amberely Schreave: so good, helps make good decision, fights for good, too pure, doing their absolute best for the people they care about, defends lee/ Clarkson even though they don’t deserve it. (ex. Can I be real a second, for just a millisecond, let my guard down and tell you girls how I feel a second. Now I’m a queen and a role model for a country full, I love my husband but he can be quite distant, you know? ['Right hand man’] god I love her)

Miss Maria Reynolds- Celeste Newsome: seductive and beautiful, actually just a victim in their situation, super great person forced to play a role, please don’t hold my babies accountable for their mistakes. (ex. My parents doin me wrong, tellin me, saying to me, everything that I have to be ['Say no to this’])

Charles Lee- King Clarkson: given power- shouldn’t have power, gets shot, stupid, idiot, idk just bad at their jobs. (ex. I’m a King WEEEE! ['Stay Alive’])

Samuel Seabury- August Illea: just wants people to listen to their opinion, honestly that’s it, I don’t have much which is what I say on every single one. (ex. Hear ye hear ye! My name is August Illea and I present “Free thoughts on the proceedings of the caste system”  ['Farmer Refuted’])

Thomas Jefferson- Queen Daphne of France: likes France, generally not liked in fandom, idk I needed someone and couldn’t think of anyone but her, it seems to fit ok (someone fill in an example for me, I’ve been doing this all night and cant think of a good one.)

Phillip Hamilton- Eadlyn Schreave: kid of eliza/ maxon and ham/ ames, does stupid thing but overall is pure, acts on impulse. (ex. The suitors say that’s about where the resemblances stop, I’m only 18 but my mind is older. Gotta be my own person, like my mother but bolder ['Blow us all Away’])

That’s all I’ve got people, I couldn’t figure out where King George the third fit in (he also seems like Aspen aka the bitter ex lover, except I like John Lauren better, idk tell me what fits better) and I couldn’t decide who James Madison would be. I was grasping at straws on some of these *cough Jeff/ Daphne cough* anyways I’d love to know your thoughts on this, what you agree or disagree on, feel free to add your changes/ opinions.

Also I’m gonna tag some people who I think would enjoy this list @eccentricbooks @theheirofillea @the-selection-bitch


I really want Selection fanfics of various Christmases:

  • Maxerica’s first Christmas together
  • Their first Christmas with each of their children
  • Each of their children’s favorite Christmases
  • Report specials about how they decorate the palace
  • Inviting America’s family to spend Christmas at the palace

There are so many options out there!!! 

If Maxon Schreave were Adele.

Maxon/Adele: hello… My dear

America: I’m NOT your dear.

Maxon/Adele: I was wondering if after all these girls you’d like to meet, to go over, princely things.

America: Please. Stop.

Maxon/Adele: they say that loves suppose to be easy, but I’m still tuggin my ear…

America: that’s it, I’m leaving.


America: omg really

Maxon/Adele: for mending your heart

America: wait what

Maxon/Adele: cause it don’t matter, Kris clearly, acts the princess part.

America: go away

Maxon/Adele: it’s so typical of me to fling myself at stupid girls I’m sorry. I hope, that you’re well, did you ever make it out of that caste where money never happened? It’s no secret, that this whole dang show is wasting both our times.



America: *kicks him in the shins*

"Mom, exactly how many rules did you break?"

Well, let’s see….

1. Meeting Maxon before the Selection

2. Insulting him when he gave her what she wanted

3. Kneeing him in the groin

4. Not to mention her not keeping one of her maids in her room at night

5. Telling Maxon she broke curfew on a regular basis

6. Telling Maxon she would be only his “friend” (yeah like that lasted for long) and expressing she wasn’t there to win but would stay to be Maxon’s inside person in the Selection

7. Hearing about the Rebel attack during the photoshoot

8. Calling him Maxon instead of Prince Maxon during the Report interview

9. Her letting Aspen come in to her room and kiss her

10. Having her maids go in with her at the first Southerner attack 

11. Receiving Gregory’s diary (even though Maxon gave it to her)

12. Going into that room in general

13. Telling her father about the book

14. Is dancing with Aspen at the Halloween party one?

15. Running to Marlee to try and stop her caning

16. Fighting Celeste

17. Meeting Aspen afterwards

18. Her hearing from Aspen about the southern provinces and the king’s demoting of sympathizers

19. When Maxon left for New Asia and she met up/made out with Aspen

20. Reading the military report on the rebel attacks

21. Oh, and let’s definitely not forget her suggesting to undo the social system of Illéa on national television

22. Knowing the secret about Maxon’s back.

23. Is attempting to seduce Maxon one?

24. Sneaking out of the palace with Maxon to meet August and Georgia, well after curfew I might add

25. Suggesting that she asks Nicoletta to give money to the Northern rebels. (That could be considered treason)

26. “Technically” jacking up the Convicting

27. Maxon and America almost frickle frackled

28. And finally, after Maxon proposed to her, she’s caught with Aspen

I don’t think her wearing pants was a rule broken, since Maxon gave them to her, and he said she could only wear them on Saturdays, which she did.
