You probably know, by now, that I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. If not, well, I’m not sure how invested you are in our friendship! Kidding…kind of 😛 Anyhow, when I saw that Michelle of A Geek Girl’s Guide did The Ultimate Harry Potter Tag, I knew I had to do it, too. Even though I’ve already done a Harry Potter Tag, but who’s counting? Anything to keep the magic of Harry Potter alive is okay by me and it’s October so there’s no better time, am I right?
| THE ULTIMATE HARRY POTTER TAG |
Favorite book? My favorite book is a draw between Azkaban and Deathly Hallows, but really, I love them all. It’s hard to choose just one!
Least favorite book? My least favorite book is Chamber of Secrets. Even though it really creeped me out, as a kid, I just find it really slow to read now.
Favorite movie? My favorite film is Prisoner of Azkaban. The cinematography, music, and just everything about the film was perfect. I really wish Alfonso Cuaran directed more of the HP films.
Least favorite movie? My least favorite movie is Half Blood Prince because it was not accurate at all. I just do not understand why they lit the Burrow on fire. Someone explain this please???
Favorite quote? There are so many, but it’s this, lesser known, one that always sticks with me :
“It was, he thought, the difference between being dragged into the arena to face a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high. Some people, perhaps, would say that there was little to choose between the two ways, but Dumbledore knew – and so do I, thought Harry, with a rush of fierce pride, and so did my parents – that there was all the difference in the world.”
Favorite Weasley? Fred and George, for sure.
Favorite female character? Hermione, of course!!
Favorite villain? Bellatrix – because she’s so insane that she’s arguably more crazy and gone than Voldemort. Least favorite- read: Umbridge. I never thought I could hate a fictional character so much. I hated her more than Voldemort, if that’s possible.
Favorite male character? This is difficult, but probably Dumbledore because he’s such a badass!
Favorite professor? McGonagall.

WOULD YOU RATHER?
A. Wash Snape’s hair, or B. Spend a day listening to Lockhart rant about himself. Wash Snape’s hair. Someone’s got to do it!
Duel A. An elated Bellatrix, or B. An angry Molly Angry Molly is probably the lesser threat of these.
Travel to Hogwarts via A. Hogwarts Express or B. Flying car Hogwarts Express because the trolley, the train ride through beautiful country and seeing the boats/thestrals!
A. Kiss Voldemort or B. Give Umbridge a bubble bath Oh God – give Umbridge a bath, I guess..
A. Ride a Hippogriff or B. Ride a Firebolt Ride a Firebolt, obviously!
BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATION
Is there a character which you felt differently about in the movies VS books? Ron. I always felt like they really dumb him down in the films. He’s a lot more clever in the books, but they give all of his exceptionally witty remarks to Hermione in the films.
Is there a movie you preferred instead of the book? Yeah, no. The books are far superior.
Richard Harris or Michael Gambon as Dumbledore? Both! They were both so amazing at the role that I hardly noticed the switch.
Your top thing (person or event) which wasn’t included in the movie that annoyed you most? The scenes from Half Blood Prince which show how Voldemort obtained certain horcruxes. Also, the scene that annoyed me the most that they decided to include (burning down the Burrow) wasn’t even in the books so I don’t get it???
If you could remake any of the Potter movies, which would it be? Half Blood Prince!!

Which house was your first gut feeling you’d be a part of? Gryffindor. Because I’m a Gryffindor, obviously.
Which house were you actually sorted into on Pottermore (or another sorting quiz)? Gryffindor, obviously.
Which class would be your favourite? Defense Against the Dark Arts or Charms. Both sound pretty awesome.
Which spell do you think would be most useful to learn? Wow, that’s a tough one… Expelliarmus seems like it would be really useful in all sorts of situations, as shown by the book, so I’ll take that one!
Which character do you think at Hogwarts you’d instantly become best friends with? Hermione or Ginny – I’m probably a mix of both.

If you could own one of the three Hallows, which would it be? The invisibility cloak!
Is there any aspect of the books you’d want to change? This can be a character, and event, anything. I wish that more was explained about Voldemort’s motives and Snape’s history. They’re fascinating to read about.
Favorite Marauder? Sirius Black! He’s the coolest uncle you never had.
If you could bring one character back to life, which would it be? Dobby! Why the hell did he have to die?!!?
Hallows or horcruxes? Neither. Live your life. Both sound like they’d be more trouble than they’re worth.
