Rubeus Remus Potter. You were named after the only two people at Hogwarts who seemed to give shit about me, because come on who else would I name you after? A verbally abusive dickbag who was in love with my mum and gave me shit all my life and someone who convinced a bunch of children that they needed to be soldiers? What kind of awful aspirations would that make you end up having? Come on son I’m not an idiot…

(terrible incoherent headcanoning sry)
I feel mixed, cuz I almost feel like Hufflepuff is the easy answer in some ways? Because it suits him so well, since loyalty is his most defining trait and he cares so much for others and puts them before himself.
but, like Neville, I think Daryl would be surprised by his own bravery; he’d earn the right to Gryffindor’s sword the same way Neville would and would never hesitate to do the brave and self-sacrificing thing for the sake of the people he loves. I think Daryl would accept himself in Hufflepuff; think he should be in Slytherin like his brother and father; and be genuinely surprised and doubtful of his worthiness to be in Gryffindor.
If you go with the popular headcanon that nobody goes into Gryffindor by default; they all have defining characteristics of other houses and then are sorted into Gryffindor because you choose to be be in it as you choose to be brave, it is so easy to imagine an eleven year old Daryl, expecting Hufflepuff (because his father has called him weak since he was a child) and hoping for Slytherin (not for any sense of self-worth but so he might be accepted and unabused)— and then thinking as he sat there, with his feet not touching the ground God, though, I wish I could be really worth something like a Gryffindor one day.
and then the hat roars it out and he doesn’t understand it, and he doesn’t accept it about himself, the same way he doesn’t accept Rick’s trust in him even as he continuously earns it.
IDK I agree Hufflepuff is perfect for him but I kind of love him being in Gryffindor.
