Neville Longbottom and Peter Pettigrew: An Experiment in Sorting

I have long been troubled by the fact that Peter Pettigrew was sorted into Gryffindor; of course, for reasons of plot it makes sense since he needed to be close friends with the rest of the Marauders, and Hogwarts tends to be cliquey with their Houses. However, I also knew J.K. Rowling does not make decisions willy-nilly, so I still couldn’t reconcile how a character who is entirely motivated by fear could be sorted into Gryffindor.
