(Note: in the way I’m using these terms, the primary is WHY you do things and the secondary is HOW)
Hufflepuff/Hufflepuff for Wallace Fennel. There’s a Puff tendency to make need-based calls—sticking by the person who needs you most, rather than the person you value most—and Wallace does that. Puff secondary, too, I think— Wallace wins his wars with kindness, decency, and friendly charm.
You’re a marshmallow, Veronica Mars. Veronica is a Huffllepuff primary, too, but a burned one. She drops her friends to stand by her dad, but that’s as much about his perceived need as her loyalty. And when her friends need her—when anyone needs her—Veronica jumps to help, even if she shades it in her jaded, cynical grumble. Slytherin secondary—she’ll model anything to get her way, but she does seem to prefer to model Puff. I thnk she might have used to be all Puff. Maybe that’s why she gets on so well with Wallace.
Hufflepuff Weevil, too. He’s got a burning sense of loyalty, commnity, and duty. He’s got a Gryffindor secondary (charges at things, is always himself), and a second, posturing level of Gryff modeling on top of that.
Keith is some sort of idealist House. While he sometimes chooses to betray his ideals to help someone in need, he feels guilty about it in a way that Veronica, for instance, never would. Slytherin secondary? A bit of subterfuge hardly makes his heart skip a beat.
Slytherin primary Logan, with a loud, combative Gryffindor secondary. He tries to pretend he’s Slytherin all through (his dad is a Slytherin/Slytherin who models Gryffindor— who pretends to have a Gryffindor secondary in order to play the part of the rash, rakish hero, and to give him something to blame his abuse on. “I have a temper.” Aaron Echolls is disgusting). Logan got the loud, heroic, honest secondary his dad pretends to have.
Lily- Slytherin/Slytherin who doesn’t even bother modeling. Lily’s selfish, morally dubious charisma is so refreshing to have in a character whose role sets her up to be the grieved angel. She’s the fridged innocent, the femme fatale, AND the manipulative, beloved best friend without any simplification or contradiction.
Hufflepuff Duncan Kane— reacts strongly to perceived need, and sacrifices his own happpiness and future to do the right thing by the [spoiler]. I do think he’s probably happier now, out of the rat race. Secondary? Gryffindor maybe. What do you think? I never really jammed with Duncan.
I think Mac might be our solitary Ravenclaw bastion. We’re a little loyalist heavy in this show. Mac’s got a Ravenclaw secondary, certainly: her methods are clever, strategic, full of technical skill. She feels like a constructed primary House to me: Ravenclaw or Slytherin. But she seems to have more of Ravenclaw’s detachment than Slytherin’s self-interest. Ravenclaw/Ravenclaw? Discuss?
Piz is a Hufflepuff/Hufflepuff. He and Wallace get along for reasons, after all, and it follows Veronica’s pattern of having Puff boys who she adores but who she arguably uses to make herself feel like a better person. She keeps trying to claw herself back to the long-haired, softly-lit flashbacks!Veronica. She keeps trying to bury all her sharp curiosity, her mischievious ambition, and all her dangerous coping mechanisms back into a shell of sweetness and innocence that died with Lily.
Watching Veronica learn better— watching her come to embrace all her sharp edges once again, to bury herself in a world that needs saving, to remember that she is dangerous before she is kind— was one of the most rewarding movie tickets I have ever purchased.
