It’s Harry Potter Week!
Guess what Potterheads? On June 26th, it will be the 21st anniversary of the famous book that we all come to love, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. It was originally published on June 26th, 1997. Although it was published in the US until September 1st, 1998, it’s the original date that matters here. In the spirit of the anniversary, Margaret at Weird Zeal has set up a Harry Potter Week to celebrate it! (I’m just finding out about this now, so I’m quickly typing this up to participate!) This is going to be fun!
On Day 1, everyone is celebrating by doing the Hogwarts Tag. The original creator was not found, so if you know who the original creator is, say something! Let the tag commence!
1. What house are you in?
I am in Slytherin! I always thought I’d be in Gryffindor but I was sorted into Slytherin by the official Sorting Hat on Potter. I was shocked to found out how the house described me perfectly! Cunning, ambitious, resourceful, shrewd, and determined? Most likely me!
I swear, I am not evil.
2. What is your patronus?
According to Pottermore, it is a Manx Cat. I’m not sure what it means to have a Manx Cat as a Patronus. I feel no relation to it. If the Patronus had to be of some sort of relation, it would be either a dog, a wolf, or even a pegasus. (Yes, a pegasus.) I just hope that one day, Pottermore will allow to retake the Patronus test as we can change overtime. Perhaps I’ll get something thats more me.
3. What is your wand?
Spruce wood with a Dragon heartstring core 12 ½” and Slightly Springy flexibility.
A good, powerful wand. Good enough for me.
4. What would your boggart be?
I really don’t know what this would be. I can’t even think of what it would be. I would hate to see a beggar take in the form of my dog in bad shape. I never want that to happen.
5. What position would you play in Quidditch?
I would either be a Keeper or a Seeker. I’d be a Keeper due to experience in defense and goalie in sports when I was kid playing soccer. I also love the idea of racing around on my broom trying to find something, so I would love to be a Seeker as well.
6. Would you be a pure blood, half blood or muggle born?
As much as I would love to be a pure blood, I have a feeling I would be a half blood. I don’t think I would be a muggle born.
7. What job would you want after to have after graduating Hogwarts?
This is an interesting question because I have this thought for a while since playing Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery. I would have loved to use magic for good as in making people better. I really liked the time when I got to work with Madam Pomfrey. She even said I should take the position when she leaves 😉.
8. Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?
Invisibility Cloak. I refuse to touch the wand and the ring. Nothing good comes from those.
9. Favourite book?
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire! I always liked the idea of the competition for some reason. Sad ending though….
10. Least favourite book?
I like them all. I shall not tell one is lesser than another.
11. Favourite film?
Deathly Hollows 1 & 2. I cringe to much in the first two movies for some reason…
12. Least favourite film?
They’re all good, but the first two movies. I don’t know why, but it just makes me feel weird. I laugh at random parts as well for unknown reasons (even to me).
13. Favourite character?
I think I would have to go with either Neville Longbottom or Luna Lovegood.
14. Least favourite/most hated character?
15. Favourite teacher at Hogwarts?
PROFESSOR MCGONAGALL! She’s the best of all the professors at Hogwarts. I would love to take transfiguration with her any day. I think I’d be superb at it. (Yes, I took that extra lesson in HP:HM, and defended her against Rita.)
16. Least favorite teacher at Hogwarts?
As much as I would like to take Potions, I would not want Snape as a teacher. I’d be annoyed with him everyday. (Umbridge as well, but I don’t consider a teacher/professor. She wasn’t even close to that.)
17. Do you have any unpopular opinions about the series?
I don’t think so??
18. If you could save one character from the finale battle who would you save?
Colin Creevey? I think he deserved better. Or Fred Weasley so I can make Molly happy again. She would love to see Fred again. (Also, her fight scene will Bellatrix is one of my favorite scenes.)
19. Would you rather take Divination or Care of Magical Creatures as an elective?
I love creatures, and I think some divination would freak me a little. It would really mess me up a little.
20. What pet would you take to Hogwarts?
Give me an owl. A good, strong, beautiful owl.
21. Would you enter your name for the Triwizard Tournament?
If there was a death & danger-free guarantee maybe? Otherwise I’ll be in the audience.
22. Would you rather drink Butterbeer or Pumpkin Juice?
23. Would you rather have the marauder’s map or a time-turner?
I would really enjoy the marauder’s map. Sometimes I am just really nosey on what’s going on and I would really love to go exploring some of the unknown hallways.
24. What Hogwarts ghost would you like the most?
The Grey Lady or Nearly Headless Nick.
25. Would you join the Frog Choir?
26. Would you rather get a pygmy puff or Weasleys’ Wildfire Whiz-bangs?
27. The Hogwarts Express trolley is passing by, what do you get from it?
28. Would you sneak into the restricted section of the Hogwarts library?
Probably not. The only exception if a Professor has given me permission for whatever reason.
And that’s it! That’s a lot of questions! Since this is a celebratory tag, I am leaving this as an open tag. Anyone thats want to do it, can go do it. Have some fun!
