This meme was posted over at Big A little a and Kelly invited anyone who was interested to participate. Since it’s a rather amusing meme, I thought I’d steal it and join in!
1. Butterbeer or pumpkin juice?
Well, I’m not a big fan of anything I can think of butterbeer tasting like, but I am a juice fiend, so I’d have to go with pumpkin juice (even though I’ve never tried it).
2. What house would you most likely (or want to) be in in Hogwarts?
I’d almost certainly be in Ravenclaw. I’m a total nerd, not particularly ambitious and not notably brave. Everything about me screams Ravenclaw. Which is cool. I like Ravenclaw.
3. If you were an animagus, what animal would you turn into?
Hmm… tough one. Probably something small. Maybe a songbird of some type, but I don’t know nearly enough about birds to have any idea what type. I’m talkative and like the sensation of weightlessness and flying (heights definitely don’t scare me either), so songbird seems a good choice.
4. What character to you empathize with or resemble best?
Of the main characters, definitely Herminone – again with the nerd thing. I have a soft spot for Luna too, thoughW. She has such interesting ideas, but no one ever listens to her. I totally understand that feeling sometimes.
5. What position do you play at Quidditch?
Well, assuming I’m allowed to play (I have very little athletic ability), I’d go with keeper. I’m not fast or agile, my throwing and catching suck, and I’m not terribly strong, so that pretty much rules out beater or chaser. My eyesight sucks, so I’d be a horrible seeker. I’ve got a very good sense of how to tend goal, though, so I think if I had to play I’d be keeper. I wouldn’t be very good, but I’d be better at it than I would doing anything else on the field.
6. Which teacher is your favorite?
I like Professor McGonnegall. She’s tough but fair and she’s got a flair for the dramatic at times. Besides, she’s interesting. I’d love to hear her story someday.
7. Any Harry Potter 7 predictions?
I’m running an HP book club at work and the kids usually have way better ideas than I could ever come up with, so my predictions change frequently. Currently I think that Harry’s likely a horcrux, which explains the prophecy and complicates things nicely from a storytelling perspective. It just makes so much sense. I totally didn’t come up with that, by the way. I also think Hermione isn’t going to die (she’s the token girl, so she’s safe). Beyond that, I currently have real theories I’m backing. There are lots of interesting ones I’ve thought about, though (the magical world ending and Mr. Weasley running Hogwarts as a school for wizards learning to join the muggle world was one of my favorites for sheer amusement factor and cleverness, but I don’t think it’s likely at all).
That’s it! If you want to join this meme, please do! I’d love to see what more people think!
