Sorting Hat: Riverdale Edition

The Sorting Hat is very wise, and knows exactly where to place first years. He even takes requests into account, considering he was going to put Harry in Slytherin, but due to Harry’s insistence, placed him in Gryffindor. In the words of Albus Dumbledore, “It is our choices that show us who we truly are, far more than our abilities”. So, I decided it would be fun to sort the Riverdale characters into Hogwarts houses. The characters are a very unique, and I am curious to see which houses they would be sorted into. Major spoilers ahead!

  1. Cheryl Blossom

Cheryl Blossom is the HBIC, and she’s not afraid to let anyone know it. However, despite her queen bee status, Cheryl does have a softer side, considering her close relationship with her late twin brother Jason. His death really crushed her to the point of attempted suicide. Then, she showed us an even softer side when she revealed her crush on an old friend, and Southside Serpent, Toni Topaz. Cheryl was even a Serpent for a bit, and then she started her own gang for Toni when they were kicked out, called the Pretty Poisons. So, Cheryl is a bit hard to place, she is good but also rules the school with an iron fist if things don’t go her way, so I believe Cheryl belongs in Slytherin!

 

2. Toni Topaz

Toni Topaz was a force to be reckoned with when she appeared on our screens in season 2. She started off as a Southside serpent, and befriended Jughead when he attended Southside High. Toni even posed a threat to Jughead and Betty’s relationship for a bit, but then she revealed she was really into girls, and set her eyes on Cheryl. She saw through her tough exterior and got Cheryl to open up to her and the two have been in love ever since. Unfortunately, since season 2, Toni hasn’t had much of a storyline, her on screen time consists of her being with Cheryl, and sometimes helping her out of situations. However, Toni is still a major force and isn’t afraid to put anyone in their place. So, due to her bravery, I believe Toni belongs in Gryffindor.

 

3. Jughead Jones

Jughead Jones is the writer of Riverdale and the King of the Southside Serpents. He does everything he can to protect his family and friends. He and his girlfriend, Betty, are also good at putting their detective skills to good use in solving the crimes that take over the town. Jughead’s sleuthing skills and overall intelligence landed him a spot at Stonewall Prep, which also led to him faking his death to put an end to all the wrong doings at the school and to put his classmates in their place. Jughead’s intelligence is what helps him solve all the mysteries in town and helped him figure out the mystery of Stonewall Prep, so I believe he belongs in Ravenclaw!

 

4. Betty Cooper

Betty Cooper is a very interesting character. She starts the show as the sweet girl next door that has a crush on her best friend, Archie. Then, she befriends Veronica Lodge, and starts to date Jughead, as they dig into the mystery surrounding Jason’s death. As the show progresses, Betty becomes very strong willed and determined to right all of the town’s wrongs , especially when she cracks the case of the black hood and learns her father is the one behind the mask. She then begins to question her own mind and does everything she can to not be like her father. However, it doesn’t help when her mom sends her to the Sisters of Quiet Mercy or joins a cult, and she does her best to save her mom, sister, and her friends from the hands of Edgar Evernever. More recently, she helped Jughead solve the mystery of Stonewall Prep, and Betty is just another force to be reckoned with. She is the town detective and I don’t think she gets any sleep. So, due to her bravery and nonstop ability to right wrongs, I believe Betty belongs in Gryffindor!

 

5. Veronica Lodge

Veronica Lodge strutted into Riverdale season one as the new girl in town. She quickly befriended Betty and gave Cheryl a run for her money as HBIC, but Veronica has bigger things to conquer than the school hallways, like her father, Hiram Lodge. The battle for power in the Lodge family is never ending and Veronica is not backing down from her father.  She is doing everything she can to make a name for herself and prove to her dad that she doesn’t need him. It doesn’t help that Hiram framed her boyfriend, Archie, for murder and did a lot of other shady things in Riverdale. However, Veronica does get her business skills from her dad, at just seventeen she owns a speakeasy and has her own brand of rum. Her father tries to sabotage her businesses, of course, but Veronica doesn’t back down easily. So, I believe Veronica belongs in Slytherin!

 

6. Archie Andrews

Archie Andrews has changed a lot since the first season. In the beginning, Archie’s main focus was music and his secret affair with a teacher. Then, in season two, he became Hiram Lodge’s main target, considering he was dating his daughter Veronica. He was framed for murder, and in season three he went to jail for a bit until he was broken out. Ever since his time in jail, Archie’s main focus has been boxing, and doing the right thing for youth in his community. After his father’s death, Archie has also been focusing on keeping his dad’s legacy alive and doing what’s best for the community. He even moonlights as a masked superhero to help people in need and to put a stop to bullies and drug dealers. Archie tends to lead with his instinct and his fist, instead of logic and reason sometimes. So, I believe he belongs in Gryffindor!

J.K. Rowling Removes ‘Harry Potter’ Copyright To Allow Teaching

Many things have changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and that includes the way children are being taught. Now, author J.K. Rowling has granted open license for teachers to use the Harry Potter book series as a teaching tool while kids are being homeschooled.

Teachers are now allowed to read from Rowling’s books via video recording in order to teach their students. It is very important for children to keep reading, especially in times like these. So Rowling and her agents the Blair Partnership have temporarily taken away the copyrights to allow teachers to read the series to their students.

Of course there are certain guidelines that teachers have to follow when they teach by using Harry Potter. The guidelines have been posted on Rowling’s website. Teachers can record their videos only by using secure school networks or educational platforms. However, this license is only temporary and the videos will be deleted at the end of the school year.

Teachers anywhere in the world are permitted to post videos of themselves reading from Harry Potter books 1-7 onto schools’ secure networks or closed educational platforms from today until the end of the school year (or the end of July in southern hemisphere).

Teachers all over the world can now read Harry Potter to their students, allowing them to open the children’s eyes to magic and adventures while they are being homeschooled during these uncertain times. You can follow along with the hashtag #HarryPotterAtHome – just don’t read under the stairs.

Drop Everything, It’s Gryffindor Pride Day and Here Are The Tweets to Prove it

Hey! Gryffindor enthusiast here. I know what you’re thinking: “but are you actually a Gryffindor?” Yes. No, I did not take every sorting hat quiz available on the internet multiple times until I got Gryffindor. Yes, I took the *official* Pottermore quiz, and yes, I got Gryffindor the first time. Settled.

It’s no secret that all Hogwarts Houses have dedicated members with the pride of their loyalties running deep through their veins. Every house has a day to shine, and it’s time for Gryffindors near and far to unite and celebrate. Clearly, I have a lot of love for my house. But trust me, I’m not the only one. Check out these tweets by members of Gryffindor House expressing their pride.

How To Be “More” Slytherin For Slytherin Pride Day

Today’s March 21st, so, you know what that means. It’s SLYTHERIN PRIDE DAY! Which is absurd given we are the best Hogwarts house. A celebration commemorating the Slytherin house should be celebrated throughout ALL of March. If you were fortunate enough to be placed into Slytherin, you are an ambitious, resourceful, and cunning leader.

 

 

ON WEDNESDAYS WE WEAR GREEN

This does not take into account our high sense of style! Here goes Draco stirring up some some trouble with Harry Potter. “You can’t sit with us,” Potter!

JOIN THE DARK SIDE

Everyone knows that the Slytherin house is notorious for producing evil witches and wizards, however, that is a long standing misconception. You are only evil if you give into evil, which is enough said for me. I present to you, the evilest of them all, the Dark Lord?

It’s a birthright 

Slytherin is all about tradition and lineage. This house also corresponds to the element of water, which is going to be my main determinate in this evaluation. For all my astrology lovers out there, if you are a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) you might just be more Slytherin than any of those who self-identify.

 

 

Don’t let it get to you though, if you believe you are Slytherin at heart, that’s all that matters. STRUT THAT PRIDE (especially with this Slytherin Edition of the series)!
