I wasn’t tagged for this, but I saw this brilliant post over on Zezee’s blog and even though I didn’t get tagged… this was too good to pass up!! Especially on Harry Potter’s birthday!
And if you’re wondering how I know that date, my answer is…
Am I a pureblood, half-blood, or muggle born?
Probably half blood- my family are batty enough that there’s got to be a wizard in there somewhere… but then there’d also be a lot of oblivious muggles I reckon
Which wand chose me?
Did I take an owl, cat, rat, or toad with me?
I couldn’t pass up an owl, even if I’d want a cat! Which is a pretty contrary answer, but whatever, who could say no to this face…
Where did the Sorting Hat put me?
What house did I want to be in?
Ravenclaw- isn’t that how the hat works? It takes your feelings into account 😉
What lessons are my favorite and least favorite?
Charms (what’s not to like?)
Defense Against the Dark Arts (let’s kick some dementor butt!)
Divination (if not taught by Prof. Trelawney)
History of Magic (I never get why no one likes this- it’s *history* + *magic*- basically it’s fantasy books!)
Arithmancy (I’m assuming it’d be like maths, which I liked up until my last year of school and then I got bored)
Astronomy (it’d send me to sleep)
Study of Ancient Runes (ditto)
Care of Magical Creatures (upsides and downsides- the upsides being nifflers and hippogriffs… the downsides being blast-ended skrewts)
Divination (ARGHHH THE FUTURE IS SCARY- STAY AWAY!!)
Herbology (ughh basically biology)
Potions (Snape who, let’s face it, was a horrible teacher + chemistry = yeuch!)
Muggle Studies (ermm real life? Who’d pick that?)
The form my patronus takes:
Ocicat- I was so happy with this, cos as I mentioned recently, my favourite animal is an ocelot, and this is pretty darn close!
What does a boggart look like for me?
Ermm a crazy person? A clown? A high building? I’m pretty easy to scare… I mean just ask any of my family members- I jump when they enter a room- so yeah- it’d probably just be someone going “BOO!”
Gosh I’d have the lamest boggart ever.
Do I partake in any magical hobbies or school sports?
Haha I’d love to think that I’d be good at quidditch- but let’s face it, I was never good at/interested in school sports. I’d have been that really cool kid that hung out in the library all the time with the books 😉
Where would I find myself hanging in my free time?
Hehe okay, time for some naughty school confessions: I was very very good at hiding in all the schools I went to. Here are just some examples: in a secret corner of the music room I discovered was the perfect nook for reading (plus you could leave your book there before the lesson and read to your heart’s content- result!), anywhere where there were overgrown foliage, under the stairs, behind the shelves in the library, the careers room (no one was ever there), the roof (which makes sense, I *am* a monkey). It’s a wonder I was never caught- either way I imagine, even at Hogwarts (especially at Hogwarts!), I would be anywhere I wasn’t supposed to be. I’d snaffle that Marauders Map in a heartbeat and end up in the Shrieking Shack before you can say Alohamora!
Also the message of this story for anyone under 18: stay in school kids! (But more importantly, if you’re gonna misbehave *don’t get caught*)
What would I most likely get detention for?
Reading at my desk, writing things unrelated to class, duelling (I mean if I could manage to create epic battles with just a ruler- imagine what I could do with a wand!)
What career do I want after leaving Hogwarts?
This one’s actually really hard, cos I don’t know that many wizarding careers- I’d say writing for the Daily Prophet cos it’s the closest to writing I can think of (I could be the next Rita Skeeter… ugh what a thought)
