Sorting Throne of Glass character into their Hogwarts houses
Disclaimer: This is my opinion, if you disagree then that’s not my problem.
Celaena Sardothien - Gryffindor
To me, it was very clear from the beginning that Celaena Sardothien was a Gryffindor. Celaena is confident, brazen and loves the spotlight. She knows she looks good, she knows she is good and most of all; she knows she’s the best. Some might call it arrogance, Celaena would name it confidence. She is brave, though self-righteous. Look at her actions in Pirate’s Bay. She’s stubborn, yet courageous. This is reflected in nearly all her actions throughout the first four books. (starting at Assassin's Blade and ending at Heir of Fire). Celaena let Sam take the lead when it came to a crucial point, while if she were a Slytherin, she wouldn’t have relented. Some would say Celaena is ambitious for wanting to be the Queen of the Assassins but I disagree on this. If she were truly ambitious, she would have chased her rightful title, one with much more power, rather than aiming for a role that she in the end did not even want, choosing her love over anything else.
Dorian Havilliard - Ravenclaw
The famed bachelor prince, the flirt and overall; the future king of Adarlan. When we meet him, Dorian gets written off as the handsome prince looking for his father’s approval, when in reality Dorian might be one of the smartest characters. He uses his wits and intellect multiple times throughout the series. Dorian is compassionate, loves reading and is unapologetic for it. However, let’s not forget his darker side. The fiercer part, the protective side. Dorian is bright, yet cunning. Some might place him in either Hufflepuff or Slytherin- but would anyone but a Ravenclaw have outsmarted Maeve and survived the aftermath, instead of glowering in it’s victory?
Chaol Westfall - Gryffindor
I don’t feel like I even need to explain this one. Come on. This man screams Gryffindor, the self-duped hero trying to save the “love” of his life by accidentally pushing her into the arms of her actual soulmate. The brave and stubborn son, standing up to his father for what he believes in. The loyal and brave friend, ready to sacrifice himself to save those he cares about. Chaol is literally the definition of a goody-two shoes Gryffindor. No doubt he would have become prefect and then headboy. Sarah J Maas compared Chaol to Cedric but personally, I think that does not bode well with him, but rather someone else I’ll mention later.
Nehemia Ytger - Ravenclaw
Nehemia does what needs to be done. From the beginning she had a plan and carried it out perfectly. A little too perfectly- considering, well.. She keeps her mind straight and focuses on the ultimate goal, doing what needs to be done. She is smart, brave and yet not too reckless. Some might place her in Gryffindor for her ties to the rebellion and the sacrifices she has made but if you look closer into the things she has done, you’ll see the precise actions. The careful thinking and the absolutely outsmarting she had done. Without her, neither Dorian nor Celaena would’ve gotten far. On top of that, this girl literally knew how to read wyrdmarks and taught Celaena. The sheer patience she’d need for that.
Aedion Ashryver - Hufflepuff
Brave, Reckless, Loyal. What a perfect Gryffindor, right? Wrong. Aedion Ashryver is a Hufflepuff and if you disagree, well.. Aedion’s whole character is based on loyalty. To his Kingdom, to his cousin. So far, that he’d even consider marrying her, which by the way, is totally gross. He is righteous and has a strong sense of justice and no matter what he had to do, he’d do it for them. Decisions and actions based out of loyalty and patience- because hell if I had to wait a decade for my cousin to return, I would have crumbled. A Gryffindor wouldn’t have served the enemy and a Slytherin would have climbed his own way to the top, rather than staying loyal and acting out of that ideology. “But Indy, Hufflepuffs are known for their low-self esteem..” No, fuck that? Have you seen them? Cedric Diggory? Man, those Hufflepuffs are hot and they know it- yes some of them are modest but certainly not all of them. Sjm said Chaol was the Cedric of ToG, but I think Aedion comes much closer.
Sam Cortland - Hufflepuff
This will get me hung but I do believe Sam is a Hufflepuf. Yes he is brave, fierce and a little reckless- but are those the traits that he values? We see throughout the book how kind and compassionate he is, but also how sympathetic he is. But that isn’t what made me put him in Hufflepuff rather than Gryffindor. It also isn’t his moral compass. It’s his modesty and fairness. His patience and his hard work. His fairness. This man was whipped for Celaena and rather than giving up, he fought for her in the shadows. I think that symbolizes his house.
Aelin Ashryver Galathnyius - Slytherin
Cunning, Ambitious, Driven, a Strong-Leader, self-reliant, ruthless, arrogant (though if I say so myself, it’s totally deserved). Aelin is a literal Slytherin. Some say it’s the other way around, that she is a Gryffindor and Celaena a Slytherin. But there are many key points throughout her storyline that prove differently. Let’s start with Sam’s death. She lost him because he formed a plan on his own and wanted to carry it out his way. Celaena agreed this once and look where it got her. Then she got sent to Endovier, lost another friend and got reminded and reminded again of her past and who she truly was. When Celaena died and Aelin rose in Heir of Fire, the house alignment officially changed for me. Even if it was a long way coming. Aelin is ambitious and driven to get back her home, some even might call her power-hungry after Rowan had asked her if she would take over the world and she had said, maybe one day. Seriously considering it. A Gryffindor would have never even entertained the thought.
Rowan Whitethorn - Slytherin
This is honestly a tough choice. Rowan could fit in multiple houses and yet, part of me screamed to put him into Slytherin. Rowan is cunning, resourceful and nothing if not a little judgemental. I don’t really have much to say here, for I genuinely think this is where he would be placed. Though many might disagree. I think that Rowan also shares a lot of traits from other houses yet what he values most would place him here. Besides, Rowan is a little too ruthless for another house. He’d do anything, I literally mean anything to get what or who he wants.
I once said Chaol would have sacrificed Aelin for the world (gryffindor), whereas Rowan would have sacrificed the world for Aelin (slytherin).
These are by FAR not all characters but this took me a lot of time. So if you’d like to see part two (or a court of thorns and roses one, please let me know).

PERCY JACKSON DREAM-CAST (The Greek Gods)
My friend @queenslayerthepoet and I decided to fancast the Greek gods and this is what we came up with. (To be frank, I am quite proud of this list.) That said, this is a dream-cast. The actors/models chosen are solely based on how I imagined the gods to look like and how their appearances were described in the books. Realistically, I can’t see these people working together, but a girl can dream right?
He was Aquaman. That’s all I am going to say.
This might not be anyone’s first choice, but I will stand by it. Also, Rob Pattinson never fails to surprise, so I think he can pull this off.
OR Alfie Allen
He captures Hades’ gaunt look perfectly.
OR Gary Oldman (And when I say Gary Oldman, I mean this:
OR Tom Hardy
But I feel like Tom Hardy will end up making him likable and Ares is not supposed to be likable. At least, not in the first book.
Several actresses and models of different shapes, sizes and races to show beauty is subjective.
She has the intelligent eyes and the intimidating look I imagined Athena to have. All she needs is contacts.
This is the one I am least sure about. Artemis is supposed to look like a teenager and I couldn’t find anyone who better suited the image I had in mind. Perhaps a young Leighton Meester?
I know he has gotten a lot older after Hunger Games, but this is EXACTLY how I pictured Apollo while reading the books.
Curly black hair? Blue eyes? Elfish features? Can rock a suit? Colin Morgan is your man.
A lot of us tend to forget this because of the things she has done, but Hera is supposed to have a motherly look. She is the goddess of marriage and childbirth after all. And Rene Russo did kick a little ass as Frigga, so she would make a good Hera, in my opinion.
