Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a fun week, mine has been relatively quiet so far, but I’m going to see Mamma Mia with my friend Ellie tomorrow as an early 21st birthday present (in a happy coincidence tomorrow will be exactly one month till my birthday!), which should be awesome! Anyway I was tagged for this by Never Not Reading and I’m super excited to do it because I’m sure it’s no secret by now how much I love Harry Potter (if it ever was), so this tag is right up my alley (I would make a bad joke about Diagon Alley here, but I’ll spare you). So here we go, the Hogwarts tag:
Are you a pure blood, a half blood or a muggle born?
Neither of my parents are particularly into Harry Potter so I guess I’m a muggle born? Just like Hermione!
Which wand chose me?
My wand is a 12 1/2 inch, spruce wood with a phoenix feather core. It has surprisingly swishy flexibility. Apparently spruce is a difficult wood and requires a firm hand (so basically, it’s stubborn, just like me!). Pottermore describes the ideal user of a spruce wood as a bold spellcaster with a good sense of humour. Phoenix feathers are the rarest core types and are often very picky when it comes to potential owners and are hard to win over but have the most versatility when you do-that’s good, I wouldn’t want an easy wand, I prefer a challenge! I’m surprised I got such a flexible wand, I’m not the most flexible of people!
Did I take an owl. cat or a toad with me?
I took an owl, obviously! I’m not big on cats and there’s no way I’d want a toad. This is only of the options though, if I had a choice of any animal I could bring to Hogwarts with me, I’d want a puppy!
Where did the sorting hat put me?
What house did I want to be in?
Well when I was a kid I wanted to be a Gryffindor, but I think now I’d rather be a Ravenclaw.
What lessons are my favourites and least favourites?:
-History of Magic-Okay so Binns is supposed to be really boring, but imagine you get taught by someone else, I think this class would be fascinating! I’m a total history geek, so of course I’d love learning about the history of magic.
-Charms-This seems like one of the classes you learn the most magic in? So I think I’d like it.
-Transfiguration-Turning random objects into other things? Sign me up! Plus I love McGonagall 🙂
-Quidditch-Does this count? I just really want to do Quidditch and the real kind, not the muggle version that involves running around with a broom between your legs.
-Defence Against The Dark Arts-If you had a good teacher like Lupin, this class actually sounds really cool!
-Herbology-I am so not a gardener! I’d probably kill anything I tried to grow in this class.
-Muggle Studies-Okay so I’m sure this is seriously interesting if you’re a pureblood (and not an ass who believes muggles are beneath you) but if you’re a half blood or a muggle born you’ll have experience of the muggle world, so I doubt it would be as fun.
-Ancient Runes-I’m sure this class would be interesting, but it sounds really hard!
-Divination-Sorry, I don’t believe anyone has the ability to tell the future!
The form my patronus takes
According to Pottermore, it’s a Manx cat, which uhhh…..no? I don’t even really like cats much. I’ve always thought my patronus would be a horse, like Ginny.
What does a boggart look like to me?
My boggart would be the same as Ron’s, I’m absolutely terrified of spiders!
Do I partake in any magical hobbies or school sports?
Like I said, I’d love to play Quidditch! I’m terrible at ball sports and don’t have great aim so I probably wouldn’t make the team, but I’d love to give it a try!
Where would I find myself hanging in my free time?
I reckon I would probably spend a lot of time at Honeydukes’ since I have a bit of a sweet tooth!
What would I most likely get detention for?
Probably being late! I wasn’t always the best at making it to class on time so that would be likely.
What career do I want after leaving Hogwarts?
I don’t really know! I’m a journalist, but I wouldn’t want to work for the Daily Prophet. Being an Auror sounds way too dangerous. I wouldn’t want to be a teacher, not even at Hogwarts. I don’t know, I might just have a muggle job!
Any Harry Potter fans out there, considered yourself tagged!
