As the Huffington Post points out, the MTV Movie Awards put two fandoms right up against each other – those of us that love The Hunger Games and wanted them to do well in their nominations, and the legions of fans supporting Harry Potter. Then there’s a bunch of fans that love BOTH.
The Huffington Post decided to do a bit of a mashup and ask the question – what would happen if the characters from The Hunger Games were sorted into Hogwarts houses?
You can click here to see what they decided, but at least for Katniss, Peeta and Gale, this is how they see it:
Slytherin might get a bad rap, but hear us out on this one — it’s not always a bad thing. As a tribute, she’s ultra-focused on survival, a classic Slytherin trait. If she were a Gryffindor, she might sacrifice herself in the Games so that another tribute could survive (the way Harry was willing to die for the good of others in the final scenes of Deathly Hallows). Instead, she’s a fierce competitor with a deep instinct to survive.
Everyone’s favorite District 12 cutie is a Hufflepuff. He’s kind, selfless, and cares deeply for others (including Katniss!). Even as a child, he saved Katniss and her family from starvation by giving her bread. But it’s not all fun and games for Peeta; in true Hufflepuff fashion, Katniss rejects Peeta the same way that Remus rejected Tonks, a Hufflepuff.
Gale has Gryffindor written all over him. He comes from a poor family, but doesn’t let that get him down — family is everything to him. While Katniss is fighting in the Games, he takes over her responsibilities to her mother and sister and asks for nothing in return. We think he’s a lot like Ron Weasley, who would do anything for his family and friends.
