Harry Potter: Percy Weasley has no place in Gryffindor according to these fans, a debate stormy but legitimate

Percy, ugly duckling of the Weasley siblings?

Molly and Arthur’s third son stands apart from his siblings for being a part of the family. the Ministry of Magic, to which he devotes disproportionate admiration and trust. He's the only Weasley to not to believe Harry when Lord Voldemort returns, and to follow to the Ministry's instructions to the letter. A decision that separates him from the rest of his family until the famous Battle of Hogwarts, during which he fights alongside the Order of the Phoenix.

On Reddit , an Internet user started a debate about the legitimacy of from Percy Weasley to; be part of Gryffindor.According to him, his place was more in the Slytherin camp, because of his ambition and his side. quite conceited and boring.

I feel like all the Weasleys were perfectly suited to Gryffindor, except Percy.
Charlie works with dragons, Bill is a curse breaker, the twins are rule breakers, Ron confronted her worst fears multiple times and Ginny is arguably the most daring of all the Weasleys.
But Percy is not like ça.
The most audacious thing to which he took part is when he bet; 10 Galleons on a Gryffindor win over Ravenclaw when he didn't have that money.
Don't get me wrong, I don't think it's out of place at all. Gryffindor, but from what I saw, maybe he belonged in another House.
I personally think Slytherin suits him better. He is everything Salazar liked to see in his students: He's ambitious and hard-working, he likes to be in a position of power, he's successful at what he does, and he's a pureblood (even though Percy himself don't really care about that, it always helps to get into Slytherin).

It is true that unlike his brothers and to his sister, much more Rock'n'roll and disrespectful of authority, Percy likes order and stability. by official power. He is very careerist. So many characteristics closer to the Snake than to the Lion! But it should not be reduced to these aspects of his personality. As pointed out Harry Potter fans, the redhead has other strings to choose from. his bow to assert his place in Gryffindor.

A brave character, but unlike other weasleys

Faced with; These arguments (which are otherwise entirely valid), other Internet users have highlighted more positive aspects of Percy Weasley, in order to legitimize his red and gold uniform. One of the first points is that, despite his young age, 17, immediately took his place among the adults during the Death Eater terrorist attackoccurred during the Quidditch World Cup. A very brave positioning from a teenager!

And that's not all. Percy went to against his family and everything he was taught because he believed he was doing the right thing for the good of the wizarding world. He did not deny his family for fun, but because he really thought the Ministry of Magic was right. Go to Going against the dominant thinking of the people around us requires a lot of guts.When he realized that he was wrong, he did something very brave, and extremely difficult. He faced his parents and to his siblings to apologize, admitting that he was wrong. down the line. A courageous and humble position, especially for someone persuaded to always be right!
