Agree or disagree. ūüėõ I wanted them in different houses.

George=Gryffindor, his heroism in protecting Olivia against that maniac
Paul=Ravenclaw, because he's so clever

Otherwise Hufflepuff is a good fit for Ringo the good-natured glue of the band, and John in Slytherin for his comment "we were the biggest bastards on earth"

Hmm.. my impression is that Olivia saved George from that maniac...

She did, but George was also very brave and tried to protect her too.

It also maintains the "House that doesn't really matter" into account as a metaphor for Ringo. But at the same time, like you said, he is the glue of the band and Hufflepuff keeps the peace.

Only music can save us.

John could fit be in Ravenclaw since he was the "intelligent" Beatle, but Gryffindor is suitable as well. Is he Hermione? a-hard-days-night-paul-4

Some here would want Paul as dessert - and at every other meal time.

I mentioned this over in the Things You Know Are Named For Beatles Thread. Here's another twist: https://www.9news.com.au/world.....engagement

Meghan - John Lennon
Kate - Paul McCartney
William - George Harrison
Harry - Ringo

Good thread revival...

Beatlebug said a long time ago

John: Jupiter 

Paul: Mars 

George: Earth 

Ringo: Pluto   

Hmm... upon revision:

John: Mars (warlike, fearless, adventurous, can't stay in one place)
Paul: Venus (love, gentle, good with people)
George: Saturn (enigmatic)
Ringo: Earth (sociable, life-giving)

...
Or you could reverse George and Ringo:
George: Earth (has gardens)
Ringo: Saturn (has rings)
a-hard-days-night-george-4

Although if you go by astrology then it's
John (Libra): Venus
Paul (Gemini): Mercury
George (Pisces): Neptune
Ringo (Cancer): Moon

(Funnily enough, none of their zodiac signs happen to share ruling planets)

I saw some HP metaphors up yonder that I disagree with. 

I think George is the easiest; he's almost certainly a Ravenclaw. He basically devoted his life to acquiring knowledge and wisdom, and he was a very wise person.

John is probably a Slytherin. He doesn't really fit any of the other houses and tbh he just feels like a Slytherin to me.

Ringo is sorta tough. He's probably a Hufflepuff, but I could also see him being a Gryffindor. 

Paul is the hardest. He's super nice and vvvveeeeerrrryyyyyy hardworking, so he'd make a magnificent Hufflepuff, but Ringo is more of a Hufflepuff than he is, I think, and he could also fit as a Gryffindor... I don't know. I think he's a Hufflepuff.

 

The above is rock-solid proof that I have no life whatsoever. john-lennon-salute_gif

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 I have spent years trying to convince various people that those are their correct houses! (Although Paul is Gryffindor. Definitely).

...probably because not many signs share ruling planets. They do, however, share elements: Lennon and McCartney's signs are both Air, and Harrison and Starr are both Water signs. ahdn_george_01
