I’ve seen this tag floating around, most recently on Nova from GalaxyLocks’s blog, but I can not find the creator! If anyone knows, please let me know.
I wasn’t actually tagged for this, but I really wanted to do a tag, and this one seemed like fun, so…here we go!
Am I a pureblood, half-blood, or muggle born?
Definitely a Muggleborn! The entire rest of my family is so far from magical. Well, they want to be, at least, but sometimes weird stuff happens with my mom’s family, so maybe I’m a half-blood?
Which wand chose me?
Applewood: Applewood wands are not made in great numbers. They are powerful and best suited to an owner of high aims and ideals, as this wood mixes poorly with Dark magic. It is said that the possessor of an apple wand will be well-loved and long-lived, and I have often noticed that customers of great personal charm find their perfect match in an applewood wand. An unusual ability to converse with other magical beings in their native tongues is often found among apple wand owners, who include the celebrated author of Merpeople: A Comprehensive Guide to Their Language and Customs, Dylan Marwood.
Phoenix Feather core: This is the rarest core type. Phoenix feathers are capable of the greatest range of magic, though they may take longer than either unicorn or dragon cores to reveal this. They show the most initiative, sometimes acting of their own accord, a quality that many witches and wizards dislike. Phoenix feather wands are always the pickiest when it comes to potential owners, for the creature from which they are taken is one of the most independent and detached in the world. These wands are the hardest to tame and to personalise, and their allegiance is usually hard won.
Length: 10 ¾”
Flexibility: Slightly springy
Did I take an owl, cat, rat, or toad with me?
A cat, for sure.
Where did the Sorting Hat put me?
What house did I want to be in?
Honestly, Ravenclaw, but I would have been fine if I’d been sorted into Hufflepuff.
What lessons are my favorite and least favorite?
Favorites: Charms, Divination, History of Magic, Astronomy, Transfiguration, Ancient Runes, Care of Magical Creatures, Herbology, Defense Against the Dark Arts.
Least Favorites: Muggle Studies (I’d probably be bored, but who knows), Potions (I think I would actually be ok at Potions, but not under Snape), Artithmancy.
The form my patronus takes:
I was so scared to take the patronus test because I was afraid I would get something I really didn’t like or feel anything for. (Is that weird?) But, I got a big cat, which didn’t surprise me at all, and I haven’t come across anyone else with a leopard patronus, so that’s cool. If I could choose my patronus, it would probably be either some type of cat, a penguin, or an octopus, so I’m happy.
What does a boggart look like for me?
I’m really not sure. I feel like I’d have the same kind of boggart experience as Molly in OotP, though, so I’m glad those things are fiction
Do I partake in any magical hobbies or school sports?
I would like to think yes, to both, but I’m not sure. I would probably try out for quidditch, and probably not make the team. I wonder what kinds of clubs and stuff Hogwarts students had, besides quidditch, though. Were there art clubs? Writing clubs? What about photography? Did Hogwarts have a school paper or anything like that? Depending on my options, I would either be super involved, or I would just spend my time trying to organize a book or writing club if there wasn’t already one.
Where would I find myself hanging in my free time?
In the library, almost exclusively. I’d probably also try to sneak into the kitchens every now and then, and I would probably hang out with Hagrid and whatever the creature of the week happened to be.
What would I most likely get detention for?
Ok, in muggle school, I think I got detention once and it was for chewing gum. But at Hogwarts? I’d probably get it for being late to class, sneaking out of my common room to explore or meet up with friends in other houses, and that sort of thing.
What career do I want after leaving Hogwarts?
Oh man, I have no clue. I would probably want to write, though, so either working as a journalist for The Quibbler (yep, I wouldn’t go for The Daily Prophet) or writing for a magazine, or…a novelist? Was that a thing in the wizarding world?
The end! I’m not going to tag anyone, but if you want to do it, do it!
