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.
