In your How I Met Your Mother sorting, you put Lily as Gryffindor and Robin as Slytherin. Why did you not reverse it? Lily is extremely manipulative, stopping at nothing to get her way, very controlling, and ambitious, all Slytherin traits. Robin, on the other hand, takes a lot of risks, such as moving from Canada to become a news anchor, and has been shown to be very brave throughout the series, making her very Gryffindor like. Can you explain why you put them each there?

Lily is ambitious, sure, but she also has a fiery and expressive personality. 

And Robin… Robin’s ambition and workaholism is her entire driving force as a character. Everything you mentioned as her bravery is very much instead her ambition. There is no question.

“I love everything about her, and I’m not a guy who says that lightly, I’m a guy who has faked love his entire life, I’m a guy who thought love was just something idiots felt, but this woman has a hold on my heart that I could not break if I wanted to. And there have been times when I wanted to. It has been overwhelming and humbling, and even painful at times, but I could not stop loving her any more than I could stop breathing. I’m hopelessly, irretrievably in love with her.”
