I am ecstatic to announce that the amazing blogger @its_justellen has nominated me to take part in the Harry Potter tag. Being such a huge fan, I’ve wanted to do this tag since I read Cassie’s post, so I’m sending a massive thank you to Ellen. Check out her incredible blog here.
Now, let’s get to the questions…
- What house are you in?
According to Pottermore, I’m in Slytherin! People may say that this house has a bad reputation but I’m proud of this result because Slytherin creates strong leaders who are proud, ambitious and cunning. The best of the best was formed in this house (Merlin!) Also, I think their common room is the prettiest. However, I’m not sure if I look good in green but the colour matches my eyes.
- What is your patronus?
I took this test on Pottermore and got a dolphin! I’m not going to argue with that. I absolutely love dolphins and I’ve always wanted to swim with dolphins. They’re such an incredibly intelligent animal, so I’d be happy to have one as my guardian.
- What is your wand?
Ebony wood, 12.5″ in length with a phoenix feather core and slightly yielding flexibility. I can’t say I’m happy with this. Ebony is a bit of a boring wood and doesn’t look very attractive and my wand isn’t as strong as I’d like it to be. However, phoenix feathers are beautiful and my wand is surprisingly long so it’s not all bad.
- What would your boggart be?
I think, like Molly Weasley, my boggart would be the corpses of my family and friends. This is a terrifying thought to me because I hate the thought of my loved ones being hurt and seeing something like this would be my worst nightmare.
- What position would you play in quidditch?
I’m really terrible at sport. I tried in P.E at school but chose to just stick to writing. Therefore, I’d probably be the keeper, staying out of everyones way.
- Would you be pure-blood, half-blood, or muggle-born?
Well, my mother isn’t a fan of Harry Potter, my father likes the films and my step-father is a big fan and has seen all the films and read most of the books. So, if were going from these facts, I’d say I’m half-blood.
- What job would you want after graduating Hogwarts?
I think, like most of the main characters, I’d like to return to Hogwarts to teach. I’d love to specialise in the control of magical creatures but I’m not sure I’d be very good at it.
- Which of the deathly hallows would you choose?
I’d 100% choose the invisibility cloak. Think of all of the fun I could have if I was invisible but also it would give me everlasting protection.
- Favourite book?
I’ve got to choose the Goblet of Fire. I loved reading the book and the Triwizard Tournament had me hooked. I think I read this book the fastest over all of the others.
- Least favourite book?
I honestly can’t choose, I’ve never disliked any of the books. I’ll say Harry Potter and the Cursed Child because I still haven’t gotten round to reading it yet!
- Favourite film?
Got to be Deathly Hallows Part 2 because that’s when Hermione and Ron first kiss and I’m soppy and enjoy things like that. But it also ties a lot of knots for me and feels a bit like a goodbye to all of the characters.
- Least favourite film?
Unfortunately, it has got to be the Goblet of Fire. It just didn’t live up to the books standard for me and I’m never really as interested in watching it again as I am with the other films.
- Favourite character?
How can I pick just one!?… It’ll have to be Luna Lovegood. She’s just so wacky, has a crazy sense of style and has “an aura of distinct dottiness.” I was always just mesmerised by her character and I think Evanna Lynch played her perfectly. She’s always really nice to everyone and she always seems to know what to say to cheer people up. We should all be a bit more like Luna.
- Least favourite/most hated character?
- Favourite teacher at Hogwarts?
Minerva McGonagall. I feel like she’s severely underrated. She’s an amazing role model for young women, particularly Hermione and I think she holds a degree of female power which is good considering most of the power appears to come from males. She also has a stern exterior but really she’s a lovely person and I’d love to have her as my teacher.
- Least favourite teacher at Hogwarts?
I mean… It’s got to be Snape, right? I love to hate him. But, you have to really don’t you.
- Do you have any unpopular opinions about the series?
I think Harry should have married Luna and not Ginny. Discuss in the comments below.
I had SO much fun writing this post, so I really hope you’ve enjoyed reading it. I nominate a fellow Harry Potter fan @laura_jayyne to have as much fun as me.
