Folks over at gayreign started a discussion about which houses the Dark Avengers would go to if they’d gone to Hogwarts. It was determined that Daken would go into Slytherin and Bullseye into Gryffindor (Mac there is a Hufflepuff — he’s loyal to anyone who gives him food). I went on and mused about it for a while and this is what I’ve come up with so far, if I would ever do a Dark Avengers-Harry Potter AU:
While incredibly intelligent and masterfully manipulative, Akihiro is at a disadvantage at Slytherin because he’s a half-blood son of a Gryffindor (Logan). This was why he resorted to making allies in other houses early on, which he inevitably betrays and fucks around with. No one really likes him but he’s charming enough that people forget that fact when he’s in front of them. It doesn’t hurt his mother is a Veela and he inherited her…unique powers of persuasion.
Lester is a mudblood Gryff that doesn’t get along with anyone from his house except sometimes Wade Wilson, who is permanently cursed with a Dark Arts spell and also clinically insane. He has a die hard rivalry with one Matthew Murdock and loves to piss the seventh-year Frank Castle off. He hangs around slimy folk like Norman Osborn enough that somehow he’s considered part of that group, but he’s more of a free agent of chaos. He loves dueling people and absolutely never misses when shooting spells. He was briefly on the Gryffindor Quidditch team before he got kicked out for fouling too much and breaking some kid’s face.
Akihiro and Lester enjoy pissing each other off, pushing each other’s buttons 24/7. They wouldn’t hang out as much as they do but they share all of their classes (except the extra curriculars: Daken has Study of Ancient Runes and Arithmancy, while Bullseye has Muggle Studies and Divination). They enjoy teaming up and beating people up / scheming to make their lives miserable / seducing folk / causing general havoc in class.
I like the idea of Mac being this wimpy-looking kid that is a natural prodigy at select branches of self-Transfiguration, and has mastered a single Charms spell that gives him the ability to climb walls. Everything else he’s either mediocre or terrible at. He also loves to skulk on the ceilings and down the halls with his hood up, scaring people. He can most often be found in the kitchens, terrorizing the house elves by claiming he’ll eat them if they don’t give him more food.
