Jessica over at Ever The Crafter did a Harry Potter tag and while I realize I just did one, this one is way better. So I figured, what the heck. Also, I realize that I didn’t post this week. The weeks that I have off from school are so rare that sometimes I just do nothing for awhile and lost track of what I meant to do. I’m also working on a Halloween short story with a few other bloggers and of course NaNo prep. I will endeavor to do better, as always. So without further ado…
What house are you in? I am, apparently, a hat stall. I have always come out fairly even between Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw. As our queen, JKR, has said that the hat always takes choice into consideration, I consider myself a Hufflepuff.
What is your patronus? The Pottermore site says a dapple grey mare, so a horse, essentially. Personally, I’ve always been very fond of raccoons, so I suspect that if I had real magic that’s what it would be.
What is your wand? Hazel wood, 10 1/2 inches, unbending with a unicorn hair core. Hazel wood is very sensitive to the owner’s emotional state and hazel wood wands often refuse to work for other wizards. Unicorn hair tends to be the most consistent of all the cores and it is very loyal as well. So my wand is very attached to me, which makes sense because I’d be very attached to it.
What would your boggart be? I am honestly not sure. I’m scared of falling and, generally, the dark but I’m not sure either of those could be boggarts. Some kind of monster maybe?
What position would you play in Quidditch? Probably a seeker or maybe a keeper. I am smaller and can be fast. I’d probably be better as a keeper, since I can get very defensive when it comes to people I consider my team.
Would you be pure blood, half blood, or muggle born? I can’t see myself as pure blood unless it was a family like the Potters or the Weasleys. Actually, I could see myself as a Weasley…
Which of the deathly hallows would you choose? The cloak. I don’t even have to think about that. Who wouldn’t want an invisibility cloak?
Favorite book and least favorite book? Favorite is Prisoner of Azkaban and least favorite is Chamber of Secrets.
Favorite film? The Half Blood Prince, for the amazing abilities of Alan Rickman. Yes, I know, it doesn’t follow the book well. I don’t necessarily think it has to.
Least favorite film? Yes, Chamber of Secrets again.
Favorite character? To pick just one favorite… Sirius. I adore how that character is written. There are so many sides to him and you feel so many emotions towards him. I would feel angry with him and feel sad for him all at once.
Least favorite/most hated character? Well Umbridge is easily the most hated. That woman was the definition of nasty. I think she’s one of the most despicable characters in the story. A lot of other characters have flaws but they also have horrible things that happened to them that explain those flaws. We never really hear anything about Umbridge’s back story but I don’t think she had a tragic childhood like Snape so she’s just a… well… anyway.
Favorite teacher? Flitwick. We never hear much about Filius in the books (and even less in the films) but I was always intrigued by him.
Least favorite teacher? Ugh, Lockhart forever and always. I feel sure Dumbledore thought it would be hilarious to watch Lockhart screw everything up but he was such a pompous jerk.
Do you have any unpopular opinions? Besides thinking that the sixth movie was the best? I don’t think that Fudge was a horrible person. I know that a lot of people felt that Fudge was almost as bad as Umbridge and I agree that his behavior was not great but I also think that he had a lot of reasons for his behavior that explains why he did those things.
