actually extremely likely. in fact, any pair benedict and martin play together I am most likely to ship.
CREATIVE TITLES WERE NEVER AN OPTION...

INB4 random person's, "YOU DON'T CARE FOR JOHNLOCK? WHAT SORT OF HEARTLESS MONSTER ARE YOU?!?!"
#1: I have reliably been informed that I don't have a heart. ;D
#2: I prefer John permanently friend zoned for some reason. I guess I took his, "I'M NOT GAY, I'M NOT GAY, I'M NOT GAY, I'M NOT GAY, I'M NOT GAY, I'M NOT GAY, I'M NOT GAY, I'M NOT GAY, I'M NOT GAY," seriously.
#3: Even if John did have a thing for Sherlock, and vice versa, it would be so much more fun if Moriarty got in the way of it every single time by being a giant creepy Sherlock troll fanboy of doom.
The guy is a Slytherin.
He would die in Ravenclaw. Can anyone picture him having the patience for the Ravenclaw entrance? It would be like, "here! Have a riddle," and he would be like, "you horrible door. I have no time for your riddles. I don't even like riddles." He probably wouldn't even know the answer half of the time. It would be like, "what's green and spits fire?" and he'd reply, "A DRAGON, OBVIOUSLY," and it would ask, "WHAT KIND?" ...then he would scream, "DO YOU THINK I CARE ABOUT ALL OF THE TYPES OF DRAGONS? IS THAT IMPORTANT?"
Seriously. I can actually see him standing there and yelling at the door. Even if it didn't reply. He would continually yell at it, and someone would ask him if he wanted in, and he would tell them that he was busy because he was so caught up in being angry at the door, that he would no longer want in... and at one point he would just start talking to the door instead of being mad at it because he thinks better when he talks aloud... then he would just end up being known as that kid who sits there and talks at the door. The door would be his only friend in Ravenclaw.
...and while I rather enjoy that headcanon, I really don't think he'd be a productive Ravenclaw. He'd be better off talking to a chess set or a skull in the Slytherin common room... At least he'd have made it past the door.
We've have seen how Ravenclaws treat those who are different than the rest of them, so for Sherlock It would probably feel like living with Donovan and Anderson with superiority complexes. because honestly,Im sure they would goad him because AT LEAST THEY CAN GET INTO THE COMMONROOM.
I would hate to see the retaliation Sherlock would dish out at them because you know he wouldn't STAND FOR THAT and we all know what he likes to keep in the fridge.
For the whole Slitherin thing I think Sherlock Learns knowledge to use it for his advantage. Instead of Ravenclaws who learn facts just to spout knowledge. Sherlock learns to use the fact for the work.
And plus THE SOLAR SYSTEM. WHAT KIND OF RAVENCLAW WOULDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE EARTH ORBITING AROUND THE SUN?
Everyone in Ravenclaw would be classified as an enemy. It would be terrible... they may even fall out of windows...
...and Sherlock is ambitious. The guy will only take on hard cases because everything else is boring. He's shrewd, ambitious, and I'm pretty sure he deleted the concept of, "rules," a while back. Everything about him says Slytherin. Some Ravenclaws just insist he's in their House because they refuse to accept that anyone of superior intellect is not a Ravenclaw... and everyone else who thinks he's a Ravenclaw should just stop playing Sorting Hat right now, because they're doing it wrong.
Tom Riddle was brilliant, and he was a Slytherin. Hermione was also brilliant. She was no Ravenclaw either (obviously). Intelligence does not translate directly into a Ravenclaw sorting. Especially when you add the fact that Quirrell was a Ravenclaw. He was a brilliant fool. Lockhart was also a Ravenclaw. You don't have to have a low IQ to be a moron. Not all Ravenclaws are smart in any productive manner, and not everyone who is intellectually gifted is a Ravenclaw.
I could rant all day about how he isn't a Ravenclaw.
...and I'd like to see someone explain why he would be a Ravenclaw given that he would probably burn all of his ties and claim he misplaced them, smiling all the while. That combined with the fact that he deletes information he deems useless from his brain, and that his middle name should secretly be, "I-AM-SHERLOCK-HOLMES-AND-WHAT-IS-RULES," I can say quite honestly that if he was a Ravenclaw, I would be surprised.
I forgot that Quirrell and Lockhart were also Ravenclaws... But you know, most Ravenclaws never seem to mention that...
Your right. Why do people make Sherlock a Ravenclaw. Im just curious, because I cant rap that concept around my mind.
Yes, they do frequently neglect to mention those two. I don't wonder why. I would be too embarrassed to mention either. Sort of like how Gryffindors rarely mention Pettigrew.
I can't wrap my head around the concept any better than you can, trust me. He just isn't a Ravenclaw. My guess is they under-analysed it, and refuse to admit being wrong.
this is really cool ok
