My greatest misfortune would be to marry into a family who would carry me as their shame. As I have been required to carry my own mother, her apparent crime to be born Negro and mine to be the evidence. Since I wish to deny her no more than I wish to deny myself you will pardon me for wanting a husband who feels forgiveness of my bloodline is both unnecessary and without grace.

The Lionhearted Girl
Peggy Carter and Steve Rogers in Hogwarts AU

"You know, I still don’t know how to dance.""I’ll show you how. Just give me a second - I need to, um -"
"Peggy… are you interrogating someone at the moment?"
"I’ve just left him Stupified in the Room of Requirement, so yes, I am going back right now." Slipping off her heels, Peggy shoves them at Steve. "Hold onto these - and I will… I will find you later. Ten minutes tops -"
"I’ll come with you. The dance can wait."


Ten years after Voldemort was defeated, Gryffindor student and Head Girl, Peggy Carter, navigates her final year. However, not all it as it seems as the magical world is beginning to face threats from Neo-Death Eaters. After certain dark magic artifacts are stolen, Hogwarts is no longer a safe haven. It seems that Hydra, one of the biggest and most active rebel groups, has infiltrated Hogwarts. What if The Ministry of Magic is equally corrupted? What use is asking for its assistance? Peggy takes it upon herself, her boyfriend, Steve Rogers, and his secret organisation, The Howling Commandoes, to smoke out Hydra’s moles within the walls of their beloved school.
Recently orphaned, Steve has been reduced to a shadow of his former self since the passing of his parents. Meanwhile, Peggy has her NEWTs to be worrying about if she wants to make her mark in this world by becoming an Auror. Not to mention she must organise the Leavers Ball, but that’s the least of her worries at the moment.

Avengers - Hogwarts House Analysis #2:

Steve Rogers - Gryffinpuff (strong inclination towards more Gryffindor tendencies).

Steve Rogers is perhaps the perfect embodiment of such characteristics as loyalty, daring, kindness, and fairness.  He is both adventurous and cautious at the same time, preferring to devise strategies before entering a battle but also willing to rush into the fray without one.  Rogers isn’t one to discriminate against a person based on qualities that others might, such as race, gender, sexuality, or creed, or even characteristics such as bravery, honesty, or intelligence (most notably exhibited through his personally choosing the members of the Howling Commandos, the first desegregated military squad).  While he’d rather resolve situations without violence (since he opposes it vehemently), he is far from above fighting fire with fire.  Top that off with an indomitable will and sense of justice, and you have Steve Rogers in a nutshell.  Due to these combined personality traits, he is best fit within the combination House, Gryffinpuff.

It is perhaps his more Hufflepuff nature that creates the almost ironic difference between Steve Rogers on duty as compared to Steve Rogers off duty.  When not playing professional at S.H.I.E.L.D. or fighting villains under the guise of Captain America, Steve Rogers is much more of a passive person.  He prefers reading and drawing to parading about as the life of the party (which he more-than-well could given his popularity).  His more calm pass-times may even come across as reclusive or avoidant to some, when in reality this is simply his subconscious way of balancing out the more reckless and volatile side of his own personality.

When it comes to friendships, you’ll be hardpressed to find a better friend than a Gryffinpuff - as long as you remain on their good side, that is.  Rogers is no exception to this trait, and the reasons why are as follows.  He is a very amiable man, willing to talk to just about anyone and offer them the benefit of the doubt in more dubious situations, however, he also relies heavily on his intuition and instincts.  Once trust is gained, he expects it to be kept due to the fact that he is loyal to a near fault, very rarely willing to give up on another person and more inclined to dig his claws in when the going gets tough.  This is not just limited to people, but to his ideals and morals as well.  While it is extremely difficult to make him consign you as a lost cause, once he has, forgiveness is something you’ll be hard-pressed to receive (partly out of injured pride, partly out of actually being hurt by your actions), especially in cases where he feels betrayed.  Gryffinpuffs take betrayal to the heart, and while they won’t hold grudges against you, they’re simply more likely to remain upset.  It takes quite the bond for a Gryffinpuff to forgive betrayal, especially in a person as stubborn as Rogers, so to receive that sort of leniency implies that the friendship means a great deal.

As far as romantic relationships go, Rogers falls right into the Gryffindor category; loving the person with all he has to give.  Oftentimes a relationship with a Gryffindor personality is much like a friendship with one, since they’re the types who prefer relationships that feel more like intense friendships rather than just romantic escapades.  One of the major downfalls of any sort of relationship with a Gryffindor is their knack for saying things before thinking them through.  Most of the time, the comments aren’t even intended to be insults, and they realize only seconds later that what they said could be interpreted as such, causing them to fumble over their words and only make matters worse.  Rogers can also fall under the category of a ‘hot-head’.  While he is beyond patient (mostly due to his more Hufflepuff nature), when the right buttons are pushed the lion comes out and oftentimes the lashing out that ensures is not a pretty sight.

It is the combination of both Gryffindor and Hufflepuff characteristics that make Steve Rogers apt to lead and function within the Avengers both on and off the battlefield, bringing both the tactics and the brazenness to follow them through.

But women can never be careful enough, can we? If we take naked pictures of ourselves, we’re asking for it. If someone can manage to hack into our accounts, we’re asking for it. If we’re not wearing anti-rape nail polish, we’re asking for it. If we don’t take self-defence classes, we’re asking for it. If we get drunk, we’re asking for it. If our skirts are too short, we’re asking for it. If we pass out at a party, we’re asking for it. If we are not hyper-vigilant every single fucking second of every single fucking day, we are asking for it. Even when we are hyper-vigilant, we’re still asking for it. The fact that we exist is asking for it.

This is what rape culture looks like.

This is what misogyny looks like.
