Xavier Finch From Uncovering Lily Gets Sorted

August 10, 2018



In Uncovering Lily, our hero Xavier Finch tells the heroine Lily that he is a fan of Harry Potter and claims to have been sorted into Gryffindor.


I’m struck suddenly by how oddly date-like our dinner has become, and even more confused by this man’s odd behavior. Ever since we sat down to eat, it seems like he wants to get to know me. Almost like he wants to be friends. I highly doubt that this man lacks friends. So why does he care whether or not I’m a fan of Harry Potter? Incidentally, I am, having grown up reading the books and seeing the films. He claims to have taken an online quiz that sorted him into Gryffindor, but I’m not sure I believe him. He’s clearly a Slytherin. ~ Uncovering Lily (Chapter Eight)


I hacked into his web browser history, don’t ask me how, and found the answers he gave to the Sorting Hat quiz. He wasn't lying, he was sorted into Gryffindor!
