I didn’t know these “Tag, You’re It” kinda things existed, but holy balls, I’m so excited right now!
A chance to profess my undying love for Harry Potter? I’ll take a whack at it.
I found this tag on the lovely Katie Rose’s blog (@katiessanctuaryblog), which can be found here! After perusing her answers for a bit, I thought to myself, “Well, why the hell not?”, and that brings me to here and now, y’all.
CALLING ALL POTTERHEADS — HERE WE GO!!!
Least Favorite Book?
-Oh lord, I hate questions like these because I hate having to choose! But…erm, and don’t judge me for this…The Half-Blood Prince. Why, you ask? Well, Dumbledore *SPOILER ALERT* dies, which was tragic, and because it felt like it was more of a filler book to drive character development and get us to realize the Hermione and Ron love each other. We got it. We don’t undestand it nor accept it, but we got it [end rant].
Hmmm…The Sorcerer’s Stone, The Prisoner of Azkaban, The Goblet of Fire, and The Deathly Hallows Part II. They’re all phenomenal in their own right and each one of them holds a special place in my nerdy heart.
Least Favorite Movie?
-Like the book, The Half-Blood Prince. Sorry, don’t hate me.
Parts That Made You Cry?
–*SPOILER ALERT* When Cedric died, when Sirius died, when Lupin and Tonks died, when Fred died, when Harry “died”, when Dumbledore died, when Lily and James died, when Snape died…I think you catch my drift, right?
If You Could Date Any Character, Who Would It Be?
-Well, I’m married, y’all. But in a pretend world: Sirius. It would be a thrilling adventure.
“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” -Dumbledore, The Prisoner of Azkaban. This resonates with me on such a deep level that I didn’t even have to think of the question for too long; the answer jumped out at me.
Fred and George for sureeee. Do they count as one? A Weasley entity? Well, it’s my tag responses so…they do.
Favorite Female Character?
-Hermione and McGonagall: both strong, resilient, intelligent women. I remember I would get teased a lot, especially in elementary school, because of my hair and my teeth. And when I found a character who had the same problems as I did turn out to be such a badass, I knew there was hope for me yet.
-Voldemort, hands down. There’s something so alluring about him…I’ve always wished there was a book from Voldemort’s point of view.
Favorite Male Character?
-Snape and Harry. They are so intrinsically entwined that you can’t like one over the other. It’s impossible.
-Professor Lupin, because chocolate really does help.
What Would Your Patronus Be?
-A wolf, that’s for sure.
What Would Your Boggart Be?
-Dead versions of the people I love; I have abandonment issues. #help
WOULD YOU RATHER:
A) Wash Snape’s hair, or B) Spend a day listening to Lockhart talk about himself?
–SNAPE’S WEAVE FOR THE WIN.
Duel A) an elated Bellatrix, or B) an angry Molly?
-Bellatrix…because I could out-crazy her crazy!
Travel to Hogwarts via A) Hogwarts Express or B) Mr. Weasley’s flying car?
-Hogwarts Express, ’cause I wouldn’t want to break the rules.
A) Kiss Voldemort, or B) Give Umbridge a bubble bath?
-Could I kiss the Tom Riddle version of Voldemort instead? LOL.
A) Ride a Hippogriff, or B) Ride a Firebolt?
–BUCKBEAK FOR THE WIN.
AND IF YOU MADE IT THIS FAR, JUST KNOW I LOVE YOU LIKE RON WEASLEY LOVES BREAKFAST, LUNCH, AND DINNER.
