Have you seen this Buzzfeed article where YA authors sort their own characters into Hogwarts Houses?
1. There were very few Hufflepuffs and Slytherins and a TON of Gryffindors and Ravenclaws. What gives?
2. I think that Slytherin has such a bad reputation, and that Hufflepuff is the house without a strong stereotype. Sort of the "leftover pile", if you will. No author wants to think that they created a character without a strong personality, so very few would choose Hufflepuff.
3. I would definitely argue some of these. Do we really think Alaska is a Ravenclaw? And what about Hazel and Gus? Do you agree or disagree?
PS- there are more authors than just John Green, I promise
Check it out and let me know what you think!
