Ohh I feel like I’m opening a potential can of worms here, especially after
that last episode. But hey, you asked, so you shall receive. (Remember
we’re talking about everyone’s eleven-year-old selves, here.)
Emma: Gryffindor, on account of being brave, smart, and loyal.
Charming: Gryffindor all the way.
Hufflepuff, because while he’s brave, smart, and cunning, above
everything else he’s about Good Form, honesty, fair play, and patience.
Regina: Gryffindor. The Sorting Hat debated putting her in Slytherin, but she begged it not to, because that’s where Cora was. And while she does have a ruthless streak, she’s also strong and brave and inclined to help others, and lacks ambition for the sake of power.
Robin: Gryffindor, with a strong sense of fair play and courage in spades. He’s even got a lion tattoo.
Rumple: Slytherin, because he’s cunning, ambitious, and prepared to step on others if it’ll get him ahead.
Belle: Ravenclaw, because she’s intelligent, smart, and focuses on that to the point where she sometimes misses or ignores what her heart or gut try
to tell her.
Neal: Slytherin, because for him as well, it’s ultimately about what he wants. He’s pretty good at manipulating people and not above using underhanded means and forbidden magic to get what he wants.
Henry: Hufflepuff, because he’s open-minded, a believer, and a firm advocate of fair play and tolerance and acceptance.
Zelena: Slytherin, for obvious reasons, and because the house colours suit her very well.
