Lilu had to think about that for a minute. "Not entirely, at least eventually. When the students do come here, there's only going to be a few of them and they're all going to be in Ravenclaw tower, but I'm assuming you'll sort them according to age rather than personality traits to start." She made air quotes around 'sort'. "And I do think that the idea of houses isn't all bad. You need to have a way to organize classes, foster friendly competition for points and Quidditch, but I don't know. It never seemed very...practical? To sort according to personality or family. What if one year you have twelve very brave kids and none who are cunning? Would you sort them all into Gryffindor and none into Slytherin? And for that matter if it is based solely on character traits, why are the years always even? I can't believe there are 10 brave kids, 10 ambitious kids, 10 smart kids and 10 hard-working kids every single year, so there's already some sort of manipulation going on." She trailed off, knowing she'd been babbling a bit, but she did feel strongly about the Sorting system.
"I've never minded ruffling feathers when it's worth it, and I think this is. It will set Britain apart from the rest of the world, and if we become a bastion for the marginalized I don't think that's a terrible thing. I don't know if anyone has thought further than goblins, but it stands to reason it'll happen eventually." She'd have to remember to mention that to Remus, see what he thought about it. "Yes! I'll be working with Remus. Our first steps, after the goblins, is going to be making contact with the beings right here. The mermaids, the centaurs. Whatever else might have taken up residence in the forest in the last eight years. At least, that's what I think we'll do. We need to form relationships with them, as well as wizards abroad."
She grinned at the shift into Gobbledegook. His accent and pronunciation really were quite good. Better than her own, she thought, but she'd get there. "2028. Just before everything went down. And you?" It was a basic start to a conversation, but it would get the job done.
