I have become very obsessed with Harry Potter really quickly. I was nominated by a lovely lady which I now can’t find 🙁 so if you nominated me, please let me know!!
Here are my answers!!
What house are you in?
Gryffindor. I thought I would be in Ravenclaw but who knew!
What is your patronus?
What is your wand?
Maple wood with a dragon heartstring core, 12 ¾ inches and quite bendy flexibility
‘I have often found that those chosen by maple wands are by nature travellers and explorers; they are not stay-at-home wands, and prefer ambition in their witch or wizard, otherwise their magic grows heavy and lacklustre. Fresh challenges and regular changes of scene cause this wand to literally shine, burnishing itself as it grows, with its partner, in ability and status. This is a beautiful and desirable wood, and wand quality maple has been among the most costly for centuries. Possession of a maple wand has long been a mark of status, because of its reputation as the wand of high achievers. Extract from Wand Woods by JK Rowling
What would your boggart be?
A black mamba. This is the most poisonous snake in the whole of South Africa. I once was at a snake sanctuary with some kids for a camp and they were talking about the different snakes and how poisonous they are. I have had nightmares about it since then haha! In general I like snakes but I think just the thought of it being able to kill you in no time is super scary!
What position would you play in Quidditch?
I would be a Keeper as I was always a goalie in hockey and I think I would be really good at it!!
Would you be a pure blood, half blood or muggle born?
I was a Muggle until recently and then I quickly became a Pure Blood! I become very obsessed with the books and movies. I read all the books in like 6 weeks while working 4 jobs!!
Here is the list:
Muggles: People who haven’t seen the movies or read the books
Muggle-borns: People who have only seen the movies
Half-bloods: People who have only read the books
Pure Bloods: People who have read the books and seen the movies
Deatheaters: Pure Bloods that look down on Muggle-borns
What job would you want after to have after graduating Hogwarts?
I would want to be a potions teacher. I have always loved learning and teaching people -although I would never want to be a real teacher- and I think I would be good at it.
Which of the deathly hallows would you choose?
No doubt about it, I would have Harry’s cloak of invisibility. The amount of pranks I could play and the snacks I could eat 😉
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This is when we meet Sirus Black. He was an amazing character and the book as a whole had me on the edge of my seat.
Least favourite book?
Harry Potter and the order of the Phoenix. This is the first book where we meet Professor Umbridge. I have never not liked a character as much as I do not like her. She is someone I really wished I could slap across the face. She was so rude and uggghhhh I am getting annoyed thinking of her lol.
Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban. I think this is by far the best book and movie for so many reasons. I think I may change my mind at some point but right now, I will stick to this one.
Least favourite film?
As a whole I think ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of fire’ has to be my least favourite movie. I may have cried. I did
Rubeus Hagrid is definitely my favourite character of all time. He gave his everything when he was doing something, he loved unconditionally and he always tried his hardest. He will forever be the best character of the whole series.
Least favourite/most hated character?
DOLORES UMBRIDGE. I DO NOT LIKE HER!!!!!!
Favourite teacher at Hogwarts
Hagrid takes the cake here too. He would always try and show the kids that even the ‘scariest’ animals are cute and harmless if you take the right approach.
Least favourite teacher at Hogwarts?
Professor Trelawney. I just don’t like her. She probably meant well but I really feel like she faked most of the ‘visions’ she saw and was a bit of a drama queen. She just annoyed me as a whole.
Do you have any unpopular opinions about the series?
As much as people like Professor Snape and whatever. I just didn’t like him and everything he stood for. He loved Lilly and yet treated Harry like smeared poop. I know that Harry’s parents weren’t perfect but don’t take it out on the kid. He targeted people and openly showed his favouritism which is such bull. Yes, I cried when he died because he meant well BUT he was still a horrible person and I don’t appreciate him.
If you could save one character from the finale battle who would you save?
Fred Weasley. They were some of my favourite characters. The love hey had and the laughs they provided was just the best thing. I think it was unnecessary for him to die and to make me cry more than I was already crying.
I really loved this tag and I nominate anyone who is a Potter Head to do this. What house are you in? Let me know x
