I don’t do an awful lot of tag posts on my blog but there’s always a few that I can help but sink my teeth into and get involved with! And The Harry Potter Tag was one of them! As I’m sure any Harry Potter fan will agree with! What house am I in? What’s my patronus? What position would I play in Quiddich?
I might not be the most hard core Harry Potter fan (if you want one of those, check out The Dee Who Lived!) but like most, the Harry Potter universe is one that I can’t help but be enchanted by. The creatures, the lessons, the castle – it’s just magical. And I’m yet to find anyone who doesn’t wish that they could have gone to Hogwarts! And like most, Harry Potter was one of the first series I really got into as a kid!
So without further ado, let’s get into The Harry Potter Tag! I didn’t personally make this tag up – I can’t for the life of me remember who it was as it was years ago. So feel free to do this tag yourself on your own blog – I’d love to see your answers!
Let’s get into… The Harry Potter Tag!
1. What house are you in?
Slytherin. I’ve signed up to Pottermore twice (forgot all my details first time, idiot) and I’ve been sorted into Sytherin both times. I’ve also never had the option to choose right at the end of the quiz; where my boyfriend and my mum both did. Every other quiz I do I’m in Slytherin too – so it’s pretty much a slam dunk this one!
2. What is your Patronus?
My Patronus is a Mastiff (again, through Pottermore!) I’m not sure how a Mastiff represents me – big and clumsy perhaps? But I love dogs, so I’m not complaining!
3. What is your wand?
My wand is: Hornbeam wood with a Unicorn hair core, 10″ and Surprisingly Swishy flexibility.
4. What would your boggart be?
This is a great question, I wish they’d create a quiz for this on Pottermore because I’d be down for that. Perhaps death? Or the unknown? Something like that. I’m not really scared of anything physical. Apart from toads – I hate those so perhaps it’d turn into a big ugly toad.
5. What position would you play in Quiddich?
I’d be inclined to say a Seeker because I’m really good at catching things (honestly, my boyfriend could throw me some chocolate from the other side of the garden and I’d catch it with one hand!) but the Seekers get a lot of attention and are under a lot of pressure so I’m not sure how I’d cope with that! If not, perhaps a Chaser.
6. Would you be a pure-blood, half-blood or muggle born?
Well, going by how consistently I’m put into Slytherin with literally every quiz I take, I’d probably say pure-blood. But my mum likes Harry Potter and my dad isn’t interested so it’s probably more so half-blood.
7. What job would you want to have after leaving Hogwarts?
Owning a magical book shop in Diagon Alley, of course! Or if I’m going for something a bit more ambitious maybe a teacher; transfiguration? That’d be cool! Nothing within the Ministry. I’m no good with politics!
8. Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?
The wand. I think the cloak would lose it’s novelty after a while. I mean, there’s only so many things you can do whilst invisible. And I think the stone would carry too much pressure and responsibility.
9. Favourite book?
I have a confession… I’ve not read all the books! Sorry! I’m missing the last one. But I will get around to it – I promise! However my favourite book is The Chamber of Secrets because it’s my favourite story-line throughout the series.
10. Least favourite book?
Order of the Phoenix. I just don’t particularly enjoy what happens in that book and film. It doesn’t draw me in.
11. Favourite film?
Again, probably Chamber of Secrets. I just love the storyline in that book/film. But I also loved The Half Blood Prince as a film, I think that was done really well. The Prisoner of Azkaban is another favourite too. Okay that’s 3. Sorry.
12. Least favourite film?
Again, Order of the Phoenix. I just think that one is generally… boring.
13. Favourite character?
Hermione – always! Harry Potter would have died in book one if it wasn’t for Hermione. I love her character arc and what she stands for and she’s always been such a huge inspiration for me.
14. Least favourite/most hated character?
15. Favourite teacher at Hogwarts?
Professor McGonagall, always. Powerful, strong women all the way!
16. Least favourite teacher at Hogwarts?
Can I say Umbridge again?
17. Do you have any unpopular opinions about the series?
Umm… not really. I haven’t seen The Cursed Child and don’t really want to. Is that an unpopular opinion? I thought Fantastic Beast was good but it wasn’t Harry Potter and I’m not in any particular rush to see the second one.
