I’ve given some serious thought to the question of whether Sherlock would have been a Ravenclaw or Slytherin. Sherlock has the moral ambiguity of Slytherin, but I don’t know that he’s ambitious enough. Could see Mycroft as Slytherin though.
Oh, I definitely think Mycroft is a Slytherin. And Moriarty. In my head that’s what separates them from Sherlock, in a way, though all three share similar skill sets.
You know what? Maybe I’ll write a bit more about this. Hold up.
