Although I adore Harry Potter and the wizarding world, I do not support or agree with the views and opinions of J K Rowling on Trans and Trans rights. I fully support the trans community.
I was browsing through social media the other day, and I came across a post by one of my favourite bloggers Jenny In Neverland called The Harry Potter Tag. Well, obviously, I just had to check it out! In the post, Jenny answered 17 questions on Harry Potter (books and films), and I wanted to join in too!
I adore Harry Potter, I have done since the first film came out, and I discovered the magical world of HP. After seeing the movie, I read the books, and I haven’t stopped reading them since. I am obsessed. If I got my letter today, I would honestly go back to school without any hesitation!
I just love getting lost in the books (when I can!). They feel like home if that makes sense? No matter how I’m feeling or where I am, they make me feel safe and content. Do you have a book like that? Or are you reading this like, ‘Lisa, what are you talking about??’
Ahem, let’s move on, shall we?
If you want to find out what your house, Patronus and wand are, head over to Wizarding World.
1. What House Are You In?
I was sorted into Slytherin’s house. At first, I was a bit disappointed because everyone wants to be a Gryffindor, right? But after reading the qualities of a Slytherin, I started to feel better. Apparently, we are sleek, powerful and misunderstood – totally me.
2. What Is Your Patronus?
A Crow. I had a little Google of the qualities of a crow, and apparently, they are very intelligent. They are also known for their loud and distinctive ‘CAW CAW’ sounds, so, you know, same.
3. What Is Your Wand?
Cedarwood with a phoenix feather core, nine ¾” and reasonably supple flexibility.
4. What Would Your Boggart Be?
This is such a tricky one. An easy answer would just be a spider.
Otherwise, it would be the same as Jenny, which is death or the unknown. But I don’t know what the unknown looks like. So, maybe that or a clock. I hate that time moves on so quickly, and there is not a thing I can do about it.
Whoa, that got deep.
5. What Position Would You Play In Quidditch?
To be honest, I probably wouldn’t make the team. But if I did, I would probably like to be a Seeker.
6. Would You Be a Pure-blood, Half-blood or Muggle-Born?
Tricky. I feel like I would probably be a muggle-born, but Slytherins typically only take pure-bloods, so honestly, I am not sure?
7. What Job Would You Want To Have After Leaving Hogwarts?
Probably similar to my dream job now – to own a cafe or bakery with a little shop on the side filled with trinkets.
Or a wandmaker, that would be pretty cool. I actually have a Harry Potter wand. Yes, I am that cool.
8. Which Of The Deathly Hallows Would You Choose?
The Invisibility Cloak, it has to be. Sometimes it’s nice just to disappear for a minute, compose yourself and come back ready and fighting. And also to spy on people!!!
9. Favourite Book?
I remember in school, someone had Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban, and I read a few paragraphs. I later went to see The Philosopher’s Stone at the cinema and read the book, but I’ll never forget that ‘magic feeling’ I got from reading The Prisoner of Azkaban.
10. Least Favourite Book?
None of them. I love them all.
11. Favourite Film?
Probably The Philosopher’s Stone. I suffer from anxiety and I have a few films that I watch on repeat constantly when I’m going to sleep as they calm me down. The Philosopher’s Stone is always top of the list.
12. Least Favourite Film?
Again, none of them.
13. Favourite Character?
Hagrid. I love Hagrid. He is so sweet and kind. I used to dread something happening to him in the books.
14. Least Favourite/Most Hated Character?
Can anybody really answer anything other than Umbridge! Well, maybe Volde-…..You Know Who.
15. Favourite Teacher At Hogwarts?
Possibly Flitwick, possibly McGonagall. I feel like you’d be able to have a laugh in Flitwick’s class. And obviously, McGonagall because she’s awesome.
16. Least Favourite Teacher At Hogwarts?
17. Do You Have Any Unpopular Opinions About The Series?
Nope. I’m one of those crazy fans that loves everything about it 🤣🤣
And just because I’ve been talking about Harry Potter, here are some of the pictures from my trip to Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London:
This was, honestly, one of THE best days out that I have ever had. Look at the excitement on my face in the first picture!!
I actually had so much fun with this post. I’ve been feeling a bit flat and sad recently, and this has really cheered me up!
I’d love to hear your answers to these questions. Who are your favourites? What would your boggart be? Let me know in the comments!
