– Day 21: Pick one character to bring back from the dead –

Who would I bring back from the dead… Fred Weasley! There were a lot of unfortunate deaths, and my first instinct would be to say Tonks, but I don’t think she would be ok without Lupin. And Fred, poor Fred, was way too young!

– Day 20: If you got to meet one member of the cast, who would it be? –

I gave this subject a lot of thought. Initially I thought I would go for Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Matthew Lewis or Evanna Lynch. But as amazing as these kids are, I think I would like to meet a lady that I truly admire,  for her long career, and that is Dame Maggie Smith.

I love her work, I have for several years, and her acting is flawless. And she seems like such a cool human being. So if I could only meet ONE member of the Harry Potter cast, it would be her, because she’s freaking amazing!

– Day 19: Do you prefer the books or films? –

Is this question for real?! I prefer the books! Obviously! No offence to the movies, they’re great, but nothing can compare to the source material (not in this case anyway). The books are full of side stories, hints and wonders that the movies don’t even begin to grasp… So, BOOKS!!!!

– Day 18: Least favourite book? –

I will start by saying that I do have a least favorite Harry Potter book, but that’s just it: it’s a least favorite, I still love it, but just not as much as the others – it still comes ahead of several others books that I love.

That book is Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I honestly can’t give you a specific reason, I would have to re-read everything to give you some points, but overall it’s the one I find most frustrating to read. Hermione is not in a huge chunk of it, it could be a reason… But we meet the Burrow, and I love the Burrow!

– Day 17: Favourite Harry Potter fan adaptation?

Confession time here… I NEVER watched any Harry Potter fan adaptation… Sorry 😦 !

It isn’t because I’m against it or any nonsense like that, but I just read the books for the first time a few years ago and I became good friends with YouTube quite recently, and I don’t surf around there for long. I just never really got into it. I watched a trailer once about the Marauders, but that was about it.

So I’m unable to answer the question for today. Sorry again.

– Day 16:Expecto patronum! What form does your patronus take and why? –

For this one I had to take a test – several actually… Honestly, I think my patronus would take a form of a raven…

Raven:

Raven is a strong symbol of both creation and destruction. Wisdom through intelligence, observation and challenge. Raven is strongly tied to the spiritual world, living in a constant state of otherworldly awareness. Raven people tend to be very introspective and savor time spent “alone”. The opposite side of the same coin as a crow.

(the Quibblo quiz agreed with this)

However, the Zimbio quiz told me that my patronus would most likely be a rabbit! What?! Now, I love Luna, but neither of the descriptions below apply to me 100%.

Rabbit:

Self-sacrifice, humility, family. Rabbit people tend to be soft-spoken and non self-assertive. The symbol of the rabbit is strongly tied to the cycle of life, death and resurrection. The rabbit is also a symbol of luck, health and clear-sightedness.

The Buzzfeed quiz told me that my patronus is a cat!

Cat:

Curious Cat represents a balance of strength in both physical and spiritual, psychic and sensual powers, merging these two worlds into one. Curious, intelligent, and physical adept, cat people tend to live in a world of their own.

patronus

 

So, I agree with the first and last. Something between a Raven and a Cat 😉 (though I’m more inclined for raven).

– Day 15: Pick three characters to be your best friends at Hogwarts? –

Wow, just 3?! Ok, I can do this! I think I would go for the girls, mostly because I love how their friendship is written in the books, Ginny at the center of it.

First, Luna Lovegood. Luna is so fun and quirky, but she’s always honest and will always have your back. Besides, she has wisdom beyond her years and she loves unconditionally.

Then I would pick Ginny Weasley. She’s super protective of all her friends and has a kind of no-nonsense attitude that I’m quite fond of.

And finally Hermione Granger. I mean, someone has to rally the troops, and even though I think we would but heads a lot, she’s a great friend. And she’s determined and helps everyone with their homework, even when she says she won’t.

– Day 14: Team Voldemort or Team Harry? –

This is a bit like the question from Day 10, that asked Hallows or Horcruxes… Is anyone going to pick Voldemort?!

Just to make it clear, I’m picking Harry, obviously, and I don’t even think I actually have to explain myself, right?

I’m picking Harry’s team because they are the good guys, they’re fighting for peace and equality and for all the right reasons. While Voldemort is fighting to conquer death, because he’s afraid of dying and wants more power!

So yeah! I’m Team Harry! Order of Phoenix and Dumbledore’s Army and all that stuff!

– Day 13: Your least favourite movie? –

As I had said a while back in The Harry Potter Tag, my least favorite movie is Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.

The two first movies were crucial to the establishment of this franchise, for sure, however the kids still couldn’t act much and the design was still not 100% perfected… While that was more than ok in movie 1, because we saw the magic for the first time, and all the world building, on Chamber of Secrets it just didn’t work for me. Also, it might have something to do with Chamber of Secrets being my least favorite book as well.

And as much as I will always be thankful to  Chris Columbus for bringing the Harry Potter magic into our screens, I’m glad he stepped aside for the 3rd movie, when in my opinion, the movies got a whole lot better…

– Day 12: Favourite ship? –

I actually have 2 huge ships within the Harry Potter Universe… I mean, I ship a lot of other people, but these 2 are strong.

Ron & Hermione

I don’t care what J.K. Rowling said a while back about this being a mistake or whatever, Ron and Hermione complement each other so well… I shipped them since they were kids, so awkward around each other, never really knowing how to demonstrate their feelings… with Ron always standing up for her, but never truly admitting it. And then the jealousy… Book 4 was hard for Ron! Book 6 was hell for Hermione! But I love their relationship, their foundation of friendship and all the things that were never said throughout the 7 books, but that you could feel through the pages.

““Hang on a moment!” said Ron sharply. “We’ve forgotten someone!” “Who?” asked Hermione. “The house-elves, they’ll all be down in the kitchen, won’t they?” “You mean we ought to get them fighting?” asked Harry. “No,” said Ron seriously, “I mean, we should tell them to get out. We don’t want any more Dobbies, do we? We can’t order them to die for us -”

There was a clatter as the basilisk fangs cascaded out of Hermione’s arms. Running at Ron, she flung them around his neck and kissed him full on the mouth. Ron threw away the fangs and broomstick he was holding and responded with such enthusiasm that he lifted Hermione off her feet. “Is this the moment?” Harry asked weakly, and when nothing happened except that Ron and Hermione gripped each other still more firmly and swayed on the spot, he raised his voice. “OI! There’s a war going on here!” Ron and Hermione broke apart, their arms still around each other. “I know mate,” said Ron, who looked as though he had recently been hit on the back of the head with a bludger, “so its now or never, isn’t it?””

– J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

Lupin & Tonks

Individually, they are two of my favorite people in Harry Potter, together, I love them to death. Oh, I suffered when she was so in love with him and he still refused her, I cried when he abandons his family, I smiled so much when he gets back to them, and then I was destroyed when both of them died, leaving Teddy… 😦

Tonks-and-Lupin-2

Still, they’re still amazing, and I shipped them from the moment I realized that Tonks was in love with Lupin.

““You see!” said a strained voice. Tonks was glaring at Lupin. “She still wants to marry him, even though he’s been bitten! She doesn’t care!”  “It’s different,” said Lupin, barely moving his lips and looking suddenly tense. “Bill will not be a full werewolf. The cases are completely-”  “But I don’t care either, I don’t care!” said Tonks, seizing the front of Lupin’s robes and shaking them. “I’ve told you a million times….” And the meaning of Tonk’s Patronus and her mouse-colored hair, and the reason she had come running to find Dumbledore when she had heard a rumor someone had been attacked by Greyback, all suddenly became clear to Harry; it had not been Sirius that Tonks had fallen in love with after all. “And I’ve told you a million times,” said Lupin, refusing to meet her eyes, staring at the floor,“that I am too old for you, too poor….too dangerous….” “I’ve said all along you’re taking a ridiculous line on this, Remus,” said Mrs. Weasley over Fleur’s shoulder as she patter her on the back. “I am not being ridiculous,” said Lupin steadily. “Tonks deserves somebody young and whole.”  “But she wants you,” said Mr. Weasley, with a small smile. “And after all, Remus, young and whole men do not necessarily remain so.”  He gestured sadly at his son, lying between them.  “This is….not the moment to discuss it,” said Lupin, avoiding everybody’s eyes as he looked around distractedly. “Dumbledore is dead….” “Dumbledore would have been happier than anybody to think that there was a little more love in the world,” said Professor McGonagall curtly…”  ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
