Re: Throwaway Remarks and Minor Details...

For instance, it`s only a minor detail that Hermione is a Gryffindor, but surely she should be in Ravenclaw (the house that favours the academic)? I`m sure that that`s leading somewhere.
Everybody refers to Ravenclaw as strictly a house for those who are smart, but it's not necessarily so. It's a house for those who have wit and cleverness. Hermione is only so smart because she memories books, which, don't get me wrong, is still smart, but it's different then the natural wittiness and cleverness that some people have without trying. THe houses are choosen on a person's true being. Some one could easily study their head off for their whole life to try and get into Ravenclaw, but the sorting hat would look more at the qualities that a person is born with, the way a person is inside. HErmione is smart but she studies hard to become so, however a more defining and more natural characteristic is her courage. With all she's been through with Harry and Ron, there is no way anyone can deny she is brave and that is something one cannot learn from a book.
