Hello, fellow book lovers!
HAPPY HARRY POTTER DAY!! 😀 The 31st of July is truly a sacred day. The birthday of the Chosen One, and
our queen JK Rowling.
So, I was stalking bloggers I found under the “Harry Potter” tag, and I found this really cool one done by That Weird Brown Girl, and I JUST HAD TO DO IT. IT’S PERFECT FOR THIS MOMENTOUS OCCASION. Why would any Potterhead pass up this chance?
The last half of the Prisoner of Azkaban and the first half of the Half Blood Prince. I know, I know, I’m weird! But I love the end of PoA where Sirius manages to escape with Buckbeak (whoops, spoilers) and Ron gets Pigwidgeon, but the beginning with Aunt Marge and stuff? Nah. And the beginning of HBP is really fun and nice because Harry and Ginny have just started dating, Harry’s good at potions, everything’s awesome, but then the ending. Need I say more?
Least favourite book?
Order of the Phoenix. Obviously because of the Sirius dying part, but also I just thought it seemed really boring and long and dragged out. (Then again, I read it for the first time at the age of 7 and anything that wasn’t action was boring.) (Not that I’m bragging or anything.)
Am I allowed to say Fantastic Beasts or is that cheating? From the Harry Potter series, definitely Goblet of Fire. The visual effects were amazing, and obviously Robert Pattinson playing Cedric.
Least favourite movie?
All the movies were meh. Don’t get me wrong, the actors were amazing and I loved it – but I’m one of those fangirls who’s like, “The books were better than the movies!” So, I could probably pick out everything wrong in all the movies, but I don’t do that. (Or do I?)
“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if only one remembers to switch on the light.” -Albus Dumbledore
“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and above all, those who live without love.” – Albus Dumbledore
“It is our choices that show what we truly are, not our abilities.” -Albus Dumbledore
What, you expected me to pick just one?
Fred and George ❤
Favourite female character?
AHHH THIS IS HARD. Probably Luna… but also Ginny because she’s honestly so?? Badass??? And Luna is everyone’s favourite kooky Ravenclaw.
As much as I love Voldy, I’m going to go with Barty Crouch Jr. His past is so beautiful and traumatic,,,, I love characters with sad backstories.
Favourite male character?
DRACO, HANDS DOWN. (Sorry, Harry.)
Hmm, probably Professor McGonagall (for obvious reasons) and Professor Flitwick (because he isn’t appreciated enough and also #RavenclawsFTW).
Would you rather a) wash Snape’s hair or b) spend a day listening to Lockhart rant about himself?
I’d probably be shipped off to Azkaban for murder if I was faced with b), so I’d probably a) wash Snape’s hair. It can’t be worse than spending 24 hours with a self-obsessed narcissist (wait, that’s redundant).
Would you rather duel a) an elated Bellatrix or b) an angry Molly?
I don’t want to die just yet, so I would duel a) an elated Bellatrix. Molly is seriously a force to be reckoned with.
Would you rather travel to Hogwarts using a) the Hogwarts Express or b) a flying car?
As much fun as b) sounds, I value my attendance and the Trolley Witch’s treats, so I will probably go by a) the Hogwarts Express.
Would you rather give a) Voldemort a kiss or b) Umbridge a bubble bath?
Would you rather fly a) a hippogriff or b) a Firebolt?
Is there a character you felt differently about in the movies?
I loved book-Ginny, but found movie-Ginny a little boring.
Is there a movie you preferred to the book?
OVER MY DEAD BODY.
Richard Harris or Michael Gambon as Dumbledore?
Your top thing that you wanted in the movie that wasn’t in there?
Luna’s commentary of the Quidditch match (in the Half-Blood Prince)! I was *so* looking forward to see her amazing comments and general craziness. 😦
If you could remake any of the Harry Potter movies, which would it be?
I’d probably remake the scene showing Voldemort’s death, and make it exactly like the book. The point of it was to show that he died as a mortal, not with all the glitter and sparkles and nonsense in the movie. Honestly, Hollywood has to hype up everything.
Which house was your first gut feeling you’d be a part of?
My mom used to call me a Hufflepuff (she’s a ginormous Potterhead; she was actually the one who introduced me to the series), so I always thought that I’d be sorted into that house xD
Which house were you actually sorted into on Pottermore?
RAVENCLAWWWWW. CAW CAW CAWW EAGLES UNITE!!!!!!! *clears throat* Sorry. I have strong feelings about #RavenclawPride.
Which class would be your favorite?
Probably Transfiguration (because Professor McGonagall) and Charms, because the most useful spells are taught in that class. Side note – on the old Pottermore, the one where you could duel and go to classes and stuff, I used to be amazing at Potions. So I guess I’d enjoy that class, too. 🙂 (TBH all the classes are awesome??)
Which spell do you think would be most useful to learn?
Oh, there’s a bunch: Alohomora (who knows when you might need to pick a lock), Aguamenti (if you’re stuck in a desert and your water supply ran out, this would be helpful), Expecto Patronum (because Patronuses are really cool), and, of course: Expelliarmus! For obvious reasons.
Which character do you think you’d instantly become friends with?
Luna Lovegood. We’re both misunderstood Ravenclaws who have slight affinity for crazy – and we both have a common hatred for Nargles.
If you could own one of the three Hallows, which would it be?
The Invisibility Cloak, duh! I’d be able to sneak around wherever and whenever without anyone catching me!
Is there any aspect of the books you’d want to change?
No. As much as I hate some of the character deaths, they all were important to the plot and staying true to reality. And JKR constructed the whole world and characters beautifully ❤
PADFOOT!! Sirius is my favourite I love him ❤
If you could bring one character back to life, which would it be?
Probably Fred, because I love him and George definitely misses him.
Hallows or Horcruxes?
Horcruxes just sound painful to me; so Hallows for the win!
DO YOU LOVE HARRY POTTER, TOO??? What’s your house? Patronus?? If you could bring any character back to life, who would it be? Who are your favourites?? Tell me everything down in the comments below!
