Harry Potter Moment of the Week #86

hosted by Uncorked Thoughts and Lunar Rainbows Reviews.

Which non Harry Potter characters would do well at Hogwarts?

Dustin from Stranger Things would rock in either Hufflepuff or Ravenclaw, though I suspect he's Huffling. This kid is smart but also he's a ridiculous 13-year-old kid, who loves DnD and he's loyal to his friends. He would completely dig everything that goes on at Hogwarts, the ghosts, the moving staircases, the magic, all of it.

Alyssa Gardener from Splintered by A.G. Howard would hold her own at Hogwarts. I imagine she'd either be Hufflepuff or Slytherin. I'm leaning toward Slytherin. She's familiar with hidden worlds within our contemporary world, I don't think it would be a stretch for her to be successful at Hogwarts.

I also feel like the vast majority of the Lunar Chronicles gang would do extremely well at Hogwarts, though some of them would take a while to adjust to the idea that magic is real and not just bioelectric manipulation. Cinder, Scarlet, and Thorne would be Gryffindors, Wolf, Cress, Kai, and Jacin would be Hufflepuffs, Iko and Winter would be Ravenclaws.
