My Place in Hogwarts
Tagged by Paige at Books and Belle, here is the amazing Harry Potter tag! I love hopping on Pottermore and researching my Potter traits, so this tag will be so much fun to complete! I also adore Harry Potter in general – I mean, how many readers out there don’t?!
I’ve recently started rereading the books via Audible and I’m falling in love with the wizarding world all over again – I still can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the release of the first tale!
Thanks to Cassie at Zombie Goddess Beauty for creating this awesomely fun tag! 😀
P.S. It’s been such a long time since I’ve read all the books and seen the movies that answering some of these questions will take a bit of research on my part!
What house are you in?
I’m a Gryffindor through and through! Every single quiz I’ve taken regarding my Hogwarts house – even away from Pottermore – has sorted me into Harry’s house!
I’m honored the hat thinks I possess the traits of chivalry, bravery, boldness, courage, and daring!
What is your patronus?
My patronus suits me so perfectly, it’s unbelievable! A basset hound is my loyal charm and it’s so perfect – we had a wonderful basset hound – Blue Girl – for years and I loved her SO very much! When I discovered my patronus, it was after Blue Girl’s death and it made me feel like she is truly watching over me from above!
What is your wand?
My wand is made of willow wood, is 13 and three quarters inches in length with a unicorn core, plus, it’s quite bendy! 😀
What would your boggart be?
My boggart would just be a toxic asshole.
What position would you play in Quidditch?
Honestly, I couldn’t give a rat’s ass about playing Quidditch! This could probably fit under the unpopular opinion question, but the Quidditch chapters got on my nerves.
Would you be a pureblood, half-blood, or muggle-born?
I’m a pureblood, plain and simple! 😀
What job would you want to have after graduating Hogwarts?
I think it would be neat to sit on the Council of Magical Law. Back in the day, I wanted to be a lawyer, before social work called my name. I’ve always enjoyed arguing about the facts and think I’d be cut out for the job!
Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?
I would pick the Elder Wand, not only because Harry got it from one of my most favorite characters, Draco Malfoy, but because it symbolizes the ultimate wizard as well as the Master of Death, which is kind of creepy, but cool at the same time. As a Gryffindor, I think the Elder Wand represents true bravery, that’s for damn sure.
Least favorite book?
I don’t think I ever finished Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – by the time its publishing rolled around, I was getting sick of the series. So, by default, it’s my least favorite. I feel like I’m writing blasphemy right now! I’m from the era of readers whom were around when the books were being released one by one and I was probably exhausted by the time the final installment debuted.
Plus, it’s such a long book – I simply ran out of patience in reading it and was truthfully ready to move on from the land of Hogwarts. I am rereading the series via Audible and I absolutely adore the books’ narrator, Jim Dale, and I will definitely be listening to all of the books, so I’ll eventually get back to this one.
I think this is the single Potter tale I actually gave away, albeit to a sweet foster child, who adored Harry, when I was a caseworker.
Favorite and least favorite movies?
I can’t really choose a favorite or least favorite movie adaptation because, well, I don’t remember them! I know I didn’t watch them all either, so it’s quite impossible for me to accurately pick.
Least favorite/most hated lead character?
Again, I think I’m writing blasphemy here, but all of the Weasleys, especially the twins, just got on my nerves. It really irritated me when Harry wound up with Ginny and Hermione with Ron. I can’t pinpoint what it is about the supposedly most awesome family ever – perhaps it’s because they are awesome – but they’re just gross.
Favorite teacher at Hogwarts?
I adore Snape’s snark and going through the books wondering just which side he’s truly on! I think he would be my favorite teacher in real life – I’m drawn to dark and spiteful characters – in real life and in the fictional world.
Do you have any unpopular opinions about the series?
I’d say I’ve mentioned my primary unpopular opinion already – that the entire Weasley family just grates on my nerves!
If you could save one character from the final battle, who would it be?
I would totally save Snape! I was devastated to learn he kicks the bucket!
