The Sorting Hat

So, it seems that I've been gone for quite some time. Honestly, things have been crazy around here. My first book is in the pre-production stages and I've been completely swamped with getting it ready. Of course, I can't work ALL the time. Sometimes I have to take breaks and/or procrastinate and let my brain relax. Break taking inevitably leads to taking a quiz about which Harry Potter character you are.

I've always felt like a Luna Lovegood and that's exactly what I got. The thing that surprised me was that when I put my result on Facebook, everyone else felt obliged to comment on how I'm so obviously a Luna. Apparently I might as well just be walking around in radish earrings and spectrespecs. I guess part of my Luna-ness is not really understanding/caring how other people see me.

Anyway, this led me to much (again with the procrastination) consideration about how to sort the TOS crew into Hogwarts Houses. The core group is pretty easy:

Or, if you're more of a traditionalist: 

I felt pretty proud of myself when I came up with these things so I figured, why not sort everyone else into their houses?

Well, this is about as close as I could get: 
Honestly, pretty much everyone under the Spock/Kirk/McCoy trifecta can either be sorted into Gryffindor or Huffelpuff but whatever. I put Scotty in Slytherin because he jumps to defend the honor of the Enterprise but not the captain, he's rather cunning, and he tends to purposely over-estimate the amount of time it'll take to fix things to get Kirk off his back. Uhura's like, crazy smart and talented. Sulu ends up being a superb starship captain. And Chekov is Chekov. He's basically the most Huffelpuffy Huffelpuff of the 23rd century. 

I started thinking about the rest of the series, too. What do you think? Any Star-Potters/Potter-Trekker/Potter-ies out there have ideas about how to sort TNG-Enterprise? 


  1. Love it! As for TNG...
    Riker oozes Gryffindor; Dr. Crusher is Hufflepuff (I think a lot of doctors probably sort into Hufflepuff- The Doctor being a notable exception); Although Picard has quite a few Gryffindor characteristics, I'm putting him in Ravenclaw- I think that's where he leans most. As for Slytherin- we don't have to stick to main characters, do we? Commander Shelby is my Slytherin- sly, cunning, & oh so ambitious!

  2. LOVE THIS POST!! Oh, I hope you do more! My husband and I do this sort of thing for fun, sorting various characters into Hogwarts houses or D&D alignments, etc. I'm pretty sure we've done it for the whole crew of Voyager and DS9!

  3. What were your results, Kelley? We need to know!

  4. I hadn't thought about Scotty that way, but you make a really good point!
