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).

 

  

Eh, I don't know. Is he loyal? Yes, I'd say so. Is he hardworking? Yes, very. Is he patient? He spent three days perfecting Maxwell's Silver Hammer so yeah, I'd say so. Seems like a Hufflepuff to me. The only reason I would consider putting him in Gryffindor is to have one Beatle in each house.

Love one another.

I would definitely put Paul in Slytherin without question.  It's so obvious to me I genuinely can't imagine him being anything else.  Paul puts on fronts, he's referred to as the PR man, he cares a lot about privacy, and is also very ambitious (which can apply to Gryffindor I admit, and is usually why they get mixed up).  Also it's worth noting that none of these traits are necessarily "bad", they just read Slytherin.  In fact I empathize with most of these because I can see them in myself and I'm a Slytherin.

John is probably a Gryffindor. His brashness and attitude, makes it very clear that he's not afraid to speak his mind.  Though he does often change it since his thoughts are so influenced by emotion (which also reads as very Gryffindor to me).

If I'm going one per house I'd say George is Ravenclaw.  I think the fact that songwriting didn't come as naturally to him as it did Paul and John in the beginning, made him want to experiment with more complicated chords and dissonances (which can be seen in Blue Jay Way , Savoy Truffle , and Only A Northern Song ), and weird time signatures (like in Here Comes The Sun ).  I get the vibe that he approaches songwriting more like it's a puzzle to solve, which seems very Ravenclaw to me.  I could be way off on this, but this is my impression.

Ringo seems like the Hufflepuff.  He's the mist likeable of the Beatles and the only one no one had major issues with at the time of the break up (which is why John and George wanted Ringo to go talk to Paul about the album release issue). I'm not married to this assessment but it seems probable.

Paul? A Slytherin? I don't see it. He's ambitious, sure, but he's so self-assured and people-oriented and, y'know, Hufflepuffy.

Love one another.

I think those traits could be considered Hufflepuffy.  The thing for me is I've always heard that Paul is very friendly on the surface, but he only lets people really close to him see his deeper self.  I feel like Hufflepuffs wouldn't be as closed off.

Which seems more Gryffindor than anything else to me. I do annoy my fellow HP fans by having weird interpretations of house traits, though.

Meeeee

Also I see you're point about it being Gryffindor.  I think it's also pretty Slytherin though.  The overlap between those two houses happens alot.  I find myself disagreeing over those house placements the most.

I think Paul would make a good Gryffindor. But he would make an even better Hufflepuff.

Shall we call this debate resolved? Perhaps we can go on to discussing other Beatley people now...

The Beatles as Miles Davis albums

Ringo: The Birth of the Cool (1957)

Chilled, groovy, and above all, cool a-hard-days-night-george-4

Miles-Davis-Birth-of-the-Cool.jpgImage Enlarger

John: Bitches Brew (1970)

Bold, out there, often extreme and polarising, always pushing for artistic experimentation. 

Miles-Davis-Bitches-Brew.jpgImage Enlarger

George: In A Silent Way (1969)

Reflective, ponderous, wise and one that most of us will probably never come close to understanding.

Miles-Davis-In-A-Silent-Way.jpgImage Enlarger

Paul: Sketches of Spain (1960)

Ambitious, melodic and friendly with a sometimes more abrasive edge.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

@50yearslate Why would you make Paul Gabby Gabby?

(don't read if you haven't seen the movie and want to)

She's selfish and manipulative. She pretended to care about Forky only to use what he told her about Woody against him, and then held Forky hostage and used him to blackmail Woody so that she could steal his voice box. She is literal scum.

I disagree with quite a lot of that. She may have used Forky to get Woody's voicebox (which was pretty cruel, I admit) but I was focusing more on her authoritative personality and her desire to be loved.

Love one another.
