Aloha my wonderful merfolk!
As I previously mentioned when I did the Harry Potter Story tag, I adore everything about the Harry Potter-verse. So much so that I can’t believe it has taken me this long to do the Harry Potter tag. Shame on me!
I found this tag on Underland to Wonderland but I’m sure there are many versions of it on YouTube you can also watch and take inspiration from if you wish to do your own.
The below image I have borrowed from Underland to Wonderlands post. Correct credit given. Click the picture for a link to her wonderful blog.
1. What is your favourite book?
I have to say Deathly Hallows. Although there are many deaths in this book, it feel it truly ties together everything. I love the horcrux aspect. I loved reading about the Battle of Hogwarts. Everything we had read and understood up to that moment, all came to a head. Yeah it was sad because my favourite ever book series was coming to an end, but I felt like it was such a good ending; minus the nineteen years later part.
2. What is your favourite film?
I have two that take the top place as they’re difficult to pick from: Goblet of Fire and Deathly Hallows Part 2. Goblet of Fire because its the return of Lord Voldemort, and David Tennant is in it. I love the Triwizard Tournament and the introduction of other magic schools from across the world. Deathly Hallows Part 2 because it has the Battle of Hogwarts and some of the most beautiful music I have heard in any Harry Potter move.
3. What is your least favourite book?
I don’t really remember any of the books striking me as awful, or that they were my least favourite. I enjoyed them all.
4. What is your least favourite film?
Half Blood Prince. Burning down of The Burrow; didn’t happen in the book! They put that instead of the battle at the end that helped the Deatheaters escape. How do Deatheaters murder Albus Dumbledore and then just saunter out of the castle setting things on fire and smashing the place up without anyone putting up a fight or at least wandering past to see what was going on? Just no.
5. Parts of the books/ films that make you cry.
All of the deaths, especially Fred’s. Hedwigs hit me pretty hard too. I just remember thinking, WHY?!
6. If you could hook up with any character, who would it be?
Ooh, I’m not sure. I don’t think there would be any. It would just be cool to be friends with them all.
7. Who is your favourite character?
Bellatrix Lestrange – Helena Bonham Carter is such a babe!
8. Who is your least favourite character?
Other than the obvious Dolores Umbridge? Like I swear people hated her more than Lord Voldemort. I didn’t like Lavender Brown. She was so annoying and needy in the movie and it just annoyed me.
9. What is your least favourite line?
Anything said by Harry in the Half Blood Prince. For some reason in this movie, they tried to present him as this cocky arrogant butt hole and it just comes across as proper cringy. And the use of the word tosser? Nope. Done.
10. What would your Patronus be?
Probably a dog of some sort.
11. If you could have the Resurrection Stone, Invisibility Cloak or Elder Wand, which would it be?
The cloak of invisibility. Imagine the places you could go with that? You wouldn’t have to pay entry for anywhere! I could travel for free, get into the Harry Potter Studio or Disneyland without paying! Free trips!
12. Which house would you be in?
Friends told me I would be in Hufflepuff. Everyone online questionnaire I did told me I would be in Hufflepuff. Finally, Pottermore confirmed I was in fact a Hufflepuff. I’m no longer ashamed of this fact and I am a proud Hufflepuff.
13. If you could meet any member of the cast, who would it be?
Helena Bonham Carter <33
14. If you were on the Quidditch team, which position would you play?
I don’t really do sports but if I had to choose a position, I’d probably say beater. I am awful at catching so that rules out Chaser and Keeper. I’m not particularly quick so seeker is also out.
15. Were you happy with the ending?
The main ending, yeah I was pretty happy with it. Harry won, people were avenged and the Wizarding World could get back to normal. The nineteen years later part I felt could have been left out. I was happy with knowing Harry won. It was obvious he would get with Ginny, that Ron and Hermione would be together. It could have been left at that.
16. How much does Harry Potter mean to you?
Harry Potter means everything to me. If it wasn’t for Harry Potter, I wouldn’t have met my best friend and sister from another mister. Harry Potter has gotten me through some dark times. It has given me some awesome memories. It has allowed me to make friends I wouldn’t have found without it. I feel like I owe a lot to JK Rowling for allowing us to share in her magic world.
I tag every Potterhead who hasn’t already done this tag, to do it and share with me how much they love Harry Potter and the Wizarding world.
