imaginary circus

Writer, fangirl, bon vivant. My interests are all over the map. I love good stories however they come packaged.


Liker of coffee and words. Occasionally cranky. tumblr elderly. I apologize in advance for my tags.

KyrieAnne and I are debating what Hogwarts House Anne would be in. She’s saying Slytherin. I said Ravenclaw, but I could see an argument for Gryffindor.

Though I also think it depends on when she attends and who her family is. A Muggleborn in 1870s Hogwarts would have been pretty sad in Slytherin, I think.

I’m going with Muggleborn orphan from Derbyshire (because that’s what a history search on last name Shirley told me.) Same class as Dumbledore. They were both fetching red-heads. Ravenclaw. Head girl.

What say you?

    As much as an argument could be made for any house, I see so many parallels with Luna Lovegood that I can’t help but...

    I think I’m convinced - Anne is Slytherin. She is quite wily.
  6. anonsally answered: I did a bit of a poll about Sorting Anne a while back. I ended up thinking Hufflepuff.

    This is great. I love her. I knew she had reasons. :D It’s impossible for us to say if Anne would be a Muggleborn or...

    I do get some of your arguments for Slytherin. It just doesn’t seem right though. Okay, so we have Anne, full of whimsy,...

    I’m not going to defend this theory to death; I agree Anne Shirley could be sorted into a lot of different houses and...
  15. scarletwinterraven said: Plus she’s always asking questions. I mean, how perfect is that for the house that needs to answer a question to get in their common room?
  16. yesknopemaybe answered: I feel very strongly that she’s not a slytherin. I could see her equally in gryf or ravenclaw. She gets a little more hufflepuff as an adult
  17. imagineagreatadventure answered: Gryffindor or Ravenclaw would be my guess. I think it’d almost depend on her mood that day though.
  18. lulabo answered: Ravenclaw—her inquisitiveness, her curiosity. I think. Now I want to take a sorting quiz pretending I’m Anne.
  19. belovedcreation answered: I say Ravenclaw, but I am totally a ‘Claw so I’m biased. AND DAMN SHE HAS A HUGE IMAGINATION!
  20. cribblesticks answered: Yeah I dunno, I think I used to have a strong opinion about this once upon a time but now I don’t know. I lean towards R but…
