I’ve been tagged by the lovely SunkissedScribbles to take part in the Harry Potter Tag – yay! You may know that I’m a huge Harry Potter fan, but if you didn’t know that then you’ll enjoy my post answering all the Harry Potter questions. So, sit back, relax, and read on!
What house are you in?
I am a proud Hufflepuff. I’ve been sorted twice by Pottermore and both times have been put into Hufflepuff, which I’m very pleased with! Our common room is near the kitchens, so plenty of cake!
What is your Patronus?
I’ve just had to reregister on Pottermore to do the Patronus quiz, and it turns out that my Patronus is an otter! Perfectly fine with that, otters are cute and they’re clever!
What is your wand?
Pottermore tells me that my wand is vine wood with dragon heartstring core, 12 3/4″! At home though, I have Luna Lovegood’s wand on my bookshelf as she is my favourite. I do like dragon heartstring though!
What would your Boggart be?
No question – a spider. Or anything with more that four legs. Any creepy crawlies. Shudder.
What position would you play in Quidditch?
I’ve always thought of myself as a Chaser, as I don’t think I could deal with the huge responsibility a Seeker would have. 150 points to catch a tiny winged ball? No thanks, I’ll take the huge red Quaffle instead!
Would you be pureblood, halfblood, or muggle born?
I think the most interesting wizards and witches are half blood – could you imagine having both the wizarding world and the muggle world? I think that would be amazing to be a part of two of those worlds.
What job would you want to have after graduating Hogwarts?
I think I’d enjoy working at one of the wizarding bookstores – who wouldn’t? – or I’d love to do something that involves working with all of the magical creatures. Like Newt Scamander but not taking a case full of creatures everywhere. Give me a job working with Nifflers all day?
Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?
The Invisibility Cloak
The Order of The Phoenix, for many reasons. The introduction of Luna, and the fact that she became such a strong character for the group. The companionship of Dumbledore’s Army, and having that purpose and drive to help Harry succeed. The inclusion of the Inquisitorial Squad. Fred and George’s dramatic exit from Hogwarts, and all the pranks they left in the school. The threat of Voldemort and Harry’s desperation to make people see sense. Ahh, I love it so much.
Least favourite book?
It has to be the Chamber of Secrets, if I have to pick one. It’s just one that didn’t grip me as much as the others.
Prisoner of Azkaban! After the first two films let me down a little, it was so amazing to have this film be that little bit darker. It was also brilliantly directed and I was very impressed when I saw it. Plus the inclusion of Lupin!!
Least favourite film?
I’m going to confuse you here; Order of The Phoenix. I saw it three times in the cinema, and each time I thought I’d fallen asleep because so much was removed. I know it was the biggest book, but how can you cut the legendary ‘Weasley Is Our King’ song?! Or how Cho’s friend ratted out Dumbledore’s Army and was hexed because she signed the contract? Or even the fight between the Weasley twins and Harry against Draco, resulting in Quidditch bans? It was such a shame to see my favourite book butchered and broken up into something barely recognisable. The only good thing that film did was perfect Luna.
Have I mentioned Luna yet? Duh. Luna is my absolute favourite – she’s unique, kind, and loyal to Harry. She’s not afraid to show that loyalty when Harry is being attacked by the Ministry and the Daily Prophet, instead choosing to fully support him. Luna was such a free spirit too; always so carefree and interested in the strangest things! Plus she skipped everywhere. Luna is a brilliant character.
Least favourite character?
Mundungus Fletcher. The guy is such a slimeball and a conman, and always tries to weasel his way out of situations. His betrayal in Deathly Hallows only made me hate him more and see how truly cowardly he was as a person.
Favourite Hogwarts Professor?
This definitely has to be Professor Flitwick! I love the idea of learning Charms, and he was an excitable teacher who I’d definitely enjoy learning from. I didn’t understand why they changed his appearance in the movie though; going from a bearded, white haired man to a dark haired, stern looking prof?
Least favourite Hogwarts Professor?
I didn’t like Professor Quirrell. Yes I know he was being possessed by Voldemort, but he was weak as shit and did nothing at all. I feel like his DaDA lessons would have been incredibly dull compared to those like Lupin or Mad-Eye.
If you could save one character from the finale battle, who would you save?
Fred. No questions asked. George didn’t deserve to have his brother ripped from him, and I cried so much when I read it. I still cry when I see it happen in the film.
