A Magical Q&A For #HarryPotter20

Monday, 26 June 2017

20 years ago today the Harry Potter world was born. Can you believe that? The first instalment of the phenomenal series, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, was released on June 26th 1997. All day I've seen tweets, news segments, blogposts and photos on social media full of people uniting to celebrate the boy who lived.

I myself am a complete potterhead (that's potterhead not pothead) and I'm wholeheartedly obsessed with the entire potter world. As a way to pay homage to my favourite books, films and characters I wanted to do a Q&A all about Harry Potter.

1) What house are you in?
Ravenclaw. When I took the Pottermore quiz I was expecting Gryffindor but actually ended up being lumped in with the wise, witty and outspoken house. I'll happily take that.

2) What's your patronus?
I was really hoping it would be a cat but it's actually an Osprey.

3) Which is your favourite book?

I don't know why but I really loved reading The Chamber of Secrets. I just loved reading parts like the flying car and travelling by floo powder even though it's not my favourite film.

4) Which is your favourite film?

100% Goblet of Fire. It's amazing.

5) If you were at Hogwarts, which class would you like the most?

Probably Transfiguration.

6) Favourite Quotes?

"Happiness can be found in even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light".
"The ones that love us never really leave us".

7) Favourite Weasley?

Fred and George count as one right? I couldn't choose between them.

8) Favourite female character?

Luna Lovegood. She's just so adorable.

9) Favourite male character?

This was hard but probably Sirius Black. 

10) Favourite professor?

As much as I love Mcgonagall, I'd say Proffessor Sprout. One of my favourite scenes is from The Chamber of Secrets in Herbology with the mandrakes.

11) Favourite villain?

I feel like everyone would say this but I think Bellatrix Lestrange. Even though she's completely evil and killed my beloved Sirius Black, I actually find her hilarious.

12) Books or films?

Is this even a question? Obviously the books. So much is left out of the films and the detail just makes the story even more magical.

13) Is there a character you felt differently about in the films?

Yes!! Ginny!! She actually really irritates me in the films and is shown to be so boring but she's so badass in the books.

14) Which character would you be friends with?

Definitely Hermione. Could you imagine how good your grades would be if she was your best friend.

15) If you could bring any character back to life who would it be?

How can I only choose one. Cedric Diggory comes to mind because the way he died was just awful.

16) Which of the three Hallows would you most want to own?

The invisibility cloak. That would be insane.

17) What would your Boggart be?

Spiders. I absolutely hate them. Even the tiny ones.

18) Was Snape bad?

I've debated this so many times, people find this really controversial. I personally think that deep down in the grand scheme of things, he wasn't a bad guy. Of course, he was horrible to Harry and gave him a hard time but he was always looking out for him behind closed doors.

19) Which spell would you want to learn the most?

Lumos because as embarrassing as it is, at 17, I hate the dark.

20) Favourite couple?

I really love Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks.
