This is kinda just my musings on how certain couples would have gotten together and other headcanons about them in a non-despair au. I’m going to cover Ishimondo, Naegami, Komahina and Soudam. I’m keeping this PG-13 but I might do another later that’s has my 18+ headcanons.
okay it is time to use the sleep, but i’ve seen a bunch of
those paladins in the hogwarts houses posts and i DISAGREE WITH ALL OF THEM so
here we go
look. i understand why you want to put her in ravenclaw. i
get it. she’s super smart and loves technology, has an instinctual intelligence
that just blows the rest the rest of them out of the water, and a passion for
tech that fills this girl’s tiny body with joy. i understand why you want to
put this girl in the smart house. but – no.
pidge’s actions speak not about a love for technology and
knowledge – but a love for family. the whole reason pidge is in this crazy mess
to begin with is because she was searching for her father and brother. to find
them she concealed her gender, went under a fake name, got accepted into the
academy, then slowly picking away at any information she can scrap up to find
her family. that takes patience. her success is the product of thankless hard
work to achieve a goal that’s had no results. but she endures and pushes
forward, because above all pidge has loyalty to her family.
patience. hard work. loyalty. look i’m sorry but our
adorable tech nerd is a hufflepuff.
that brings us too –
all too often shoved into hufflepuff because of his niceness
or ravenclaw because he’s an ace mechanic. but neither of these quite fit.
hunk’s most prominent trait in this series is his fear. he’s
scared all the time. he’s cautious when no one else is, is hesitant about
taking risks the others jump into head first because he is afraid. this, of course, can only mean one thing: our
hunky hunk is, obviously, a gryffindor.
courage is doing something even though you’re afraid. by
that definition, hunk is the bravest person on that team. when push comes to
shove he’s always there, when it matters he doesn’t hesitate. he pulls his
courage to the fore and does what needs to be done.
also hunk is obviously the most chivalrous person on that
team. need a gentleman to show you a good time, walk you home, lend you his
jacket, and expect absolutely nothing at the of the date so he’s delighted by the kiss on the cheek you
give him? hunk is your MAN.
literally he’s so gryffindor im crying.
okay i’ll admit our sentient ball of angst threw me for a
loop since his defining characteristics are: anger, prickliness, and cluelessness
(honestly this poor boy cant catch a break). he’s not a ravenclaw, he’s not
particularly loyal, i wouldn’t define him as brave so much as desperate, and
slytherin is so wrong for him it doesn’t even bear thinking about.
but then i realized keith’s defining characteristic : self
hatred and an appalling lack of self esteem. like ye, he knows he’s a great
fighter and a great pilot, whatever. but the only friend he has is shiro, and
he never really clicks with the rest of the team, with pidge always with her
head in the clouds and hunk and lance each other’s best friends, and
somehow even when keith tries to be nice to lance the other boy ends up getting
upset anyway. and keith’s got SECRETS and a PAST and he doesn’t even like
himself, so why would anyone else? and he’s loyal to shiro, sure, but i don’t
think that’s because he’s a loyal person or values loyalty in any way, but
because shiro is all he has, so of course he’s protective of him.
this means that keith goes into … gryffindor!
look giving every day 110% when you’re uncertain and angry is
really hard. but keith is always, always there for the other members of his
team. he threw his lot in with them with reckless abandon, even though he’s keeping
secrets from them and thinks that they don’t REALLY like him, even though keith
is dealing with heavy shit in maybe not the best way he gets up every day and
does his absolute best to be the BEST he can be for the people depending on
idk that takes a hell of a lot of courage and bravery as far
as im concerned.
oh my salty winter teenager. people think you’re a gryffindor
because you’re brave, or a hufflepuff because you’re loyal. but that’s not the
case. you, my child, are the lone slytherin on this ship.
look, no one ever said slytherins were subtle. lance’s
loyalty and bravery are functions of his ambition. he wants to be the best
always. the best pilot, the best shot, the best with the ladies. hunk is his
best friend and pidge was on his team and he tries SO HARD at the academy to
make them into one cohesive team of people that work together, and he probably
would have succeeded if pidge hadn’t been hiding a giant secret. because he
wanted the BEST team.
is he particularly cunning? no. is he resourceful as all
hell and is everything he does aimed at being the BEST in some way? you bet
okay this one is SO OBVIOUS. he’s a great leader! he leads
with patience and kindness and as gentle a hand as he can bear to have in these
difficult times. he wakes up early to train, he believes in training long and
training hard but not burning anybody out. he believes in fair play, in doing
the right thing even when the right thing is painful or hard. he is intensely
loyal to the paladins for no other reason than they’re his.
he’s brave as a function of his loyalty, of his sense of
fair play / righteousness. he’s ambitious in this same way too, the stronger he
is and the more allies and power they have the more he can keep his team safe,
the closer they come to restoring peace and fairness to the universe.
honestly has anyone been MORE of a hufflepuff since helga
herself like come on
