In case you didn’t know, I am obsessed with Harry Potter.
The books? I’ve read them so many times I’ve lost count. The movies? I can practically quote them. But a Harry Potter tag? I have yet to do one.
Although I wasn’t technically tagged for this, I’ve seen it floating around (specifically on Lily’s lovely blog), and I just had to participate. Because guys, it’s a Hogwarts tag. 😉 Maybe after I do this I’ll finally get my acceptance letter?
At this point in the post, all the Muggles have left and all the Potterheads remain. If you’re a Muggle still here, I beg you to read Harry Potter, you won’t regret it. And without further ado, let’s unlock this post. Alohamora! Somebody please stop me, I’m having too much fun.
Are you a pureblood or a half-blood?
I’m a half-blood! My dad loves Harry Potter and got me into reading them, while my mom doesn’t like them (or at least, she hasn’t given them a proper chance).
That makes me a half-blood- one parent with magical blood, one without.
Which wand chose me?
According to Pottermore, which is the best Harry Potter website, by the way…
“Cherry wood with a unicorn hair core, 10 3/4 inches, and quite bendy flexibility.”
Did you take a cat, owl, or toad with you?
If you didn’t know, I am obsessed with owls. I mean, if you could see how many owls are in my room… *stares at all the owls surrounding me*
Is it any surprise that I would want to take an owl? Besides, I love Hedwig.
Where did the sorting hat put you?
I am a proud Hufflepuff!
I always wanted to be a Gryffindor, since that’s what Harry-Hermione-Ron were, but after being placed in Hufflepuff, I think it’s where I’m supposed to be. Hufflepuffs are trustsworthy, loyal, and kind- things that I hope I am.
What lessons are your favorite and least favorite?
My favorite is Transfiguration, because I love having Professor McGonagall as a teacher, of course. And I love transfiguring pieces of wood into books for even more reading material!
My least favorite is Potions, because I can’t get the hang of it and I always end up ruining it. I also don’t like History of Magic- not because I’m not interested in the history of magic, but because the professor is so boring.
What is your Patronus?
Also according to Pottermore, my patronus is a St. Bernard dog. I was not expecting that, but that’s all right. XD
What does your boggart look like?
I’d have to say my boggart looks like a giant spider. Not necessarily like the spider from Harry Potter, just like any creepy spider.
I’m terrified of spiders.
Do you partake in any magical hobbies or sports?
I’m a big Quidditch fan, but I’m not athletic enough to make the team, so I usually just attend all the games and cheer loudly for Hufflepuffs (or, if Hufflepuffs aren’t playing, Gryffindors or Ravenclaws).
Oh, and I love participating in wizarding chess tournaments. 😉
Where would you spend your spare time?
The library, of course! (Though not in the Restricted Section.) I spend time there studying, reading, and practicing magic on stacks of books.
I also spend a lot of my time in Hogsmeade with my friends, going to Honeydukes and the Three Broomsticks (for butterbeer only).
What would you most likely get detention for?
*gasps in horror* Hopefully I wouldn’t get detention! If I did, it would probably be for skipping Potions class and going to the library instead.
What career would you want after graduating Hogwarts?
This is such a hard question! I think I’d either work in some branch of the Ministry (nothing major, maybe Muggle relations) or become a stay-at-home-witch, like Molly Weasley.
And that concludes this tag. 😉 If I don’t get my Hogwarts letter (by owl, of course) in the next 24 hours, I’ll be severely disappointed.
Since I didn’t technically get tagged for this, I’m not going to tag anyone, but please do participate if you’d like to! Spreading the Harry Potter love is a wonderful thing to do, and then we could go to Hogwarts together, too.
Finally, I just wanted to make a quick announcement that I will not be posting this Thursday (and sadly I didn’t post last Thursday either). I’ll also be slow at responding to comments and inactive at commenting on all of your lovely posts for the next few days, because I’m going out of town. But I’ll see you all again next Monday!
