The Harry Potter book tag is a rabbit trail of confusion as to it’s origins, but I’ve taken this from All Things Wordy who took it from Musings From Neville’s Navel who took it from The Ultimate Fangirl. Right, I think I’ve given as many people as possible the right credit. This post is solely Claire because Nikki, while a HP fan, lacks the manic obsession I have with it. Don’t be surprised if she gets sarcastic on me in the comments.
But what? How am I to choose a single tome from this magnificent series to be classified as my favourite? I like the Philosopher’s Stone because it first introduced me to magic, the Prisoner of Azkaban because it expands on the magical curriculum and Goblet of Fire because it introduces me to cultural/international witches and wizards. How am I to choose? Oh hot damn… Goblet of Fire then. As well as Philosopher’s Stone. You need to give me those two!
I’m actually able to determine this one a bit better I think: OK, so, I’m going to go with Goblet of Fire and Half-Blood Prince. Yes. Don’t ask me why, that’s a post unto itself.
LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK?
Chamber of Secrets hands down. All Things Wordy and I both agree on this one.
LEAST FAVOURITE FILM?
PARTS OF THE BOOKS/MOVIES THAT MAKE YOU CRY?
Oh all of the deaths. The first time I cried was when I read about Cedric dying then I cried when Sirius died, and I pretty much sobbed for hours when Dumbledore died. Like hardcore crying, crawled into my parents bed and said WHY DID HE HAVE TO DIE? They were massively confused and unimpressed. My last set of tears were for Hedwig, Fred, Lupin and Tonks. I was gutted especially about Fred and Lupin.
In the film? Dumbledore, Fred. When I saw his body, even thinking about I can feel my throat get lumpy.
IF YOU COULD HOOK UP WITH ANY CHARACTER, WHO WOULD IT BE?
Hermoine- let’s make this happen shall we? Or a 30-year-old McGonagall .
Hermoine-Luna-McGonagall and, for the men I’m much stricter: Ron and Lupin.
LEAST FAVOURITE CHARACTER?
Lockhart was annoying but not to be hated.
Hmmm… like hated? I am not a fan of Greyback at all, the Death Eaters in general- to cause such pain to your fellow humans just because they don’t hold up to your idea of perfection, it baffles and hurts me. I can’t stand Lucius and you know what, I HATE DRACO. Obviously Voldemort is stuck on that list.
“Not my daughter your bitch!”- my main G- Molly Weasley
LEAST FAVOURITE QUOTE?
FAVOURITE MUSIC FROM THE FILMS?
The classic OST, the introductions really, that’s my ringtone. I really do love the set when Harry and Dumbledore go off to find the island, it starts off haunting and then the choir starts belting it out. It’s called Journey to the Cave.
WHAT WOULD YOUR PATRONUS BE?
A honey badger but let be known that I’m not a Hufflepuff, that’s just what it is. I am sure of this. Don’t question me.
IF YOU COULD HAVE THE RESURRECTION STONE, THE INVISIBILITY CLOAK, OR THE ELDER WAND, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
Not the Resurrection Stone unless it could bring me back. Dammit I’d like to say the Invisibility Cloak or the Elder Wand but power lies within and not with your tools, so I’ll say Invisibility Cloak.
WHAT HOUSE WOULD YOU BE IN?
I’d be a hatstall between Ravenclaw and Slytherin. I’d like to say it would put me in Ravenclaw but in reality I think I’d get put with Slytherin. Pottermore seems to think so, I’ve gotten it like 6 times. Actually ALL TIMES, even when I try to trick the damn thing. The house merch I own is Ravenclaw though.
IF YOU COULD MEET ANY MEMBER OF THE CAST, WHO WOULD IT BE?
The cast? Evanna Lynch.
IF YOU WERE ON THE QUIDDITCH TEAM, WHAT POSITION WOULD YOU PLAY?
I wouldn’t be on the Quidditch team, you couldn’t get me on the damn broom without kicking and screaming.
WERE YOU HAPPY WITH THE ENDING?
Nope, nope, nope, NOPE.
HOW MUCH DOES HARRY POTTER MEAN TO YOU?
His world and not just him, it means life for me when I was down. It means friendship when I was alone. It means survival. The whole series for me, is about my survival and I go to it for comfort whenever I need a reminder to do so.
So, how do you disagree or agree with me? Are you ready to spill your Harry Potter secrets?
