Sort me!

  1. Collapse )
    What sort of profession in the wizarding world would you choose and why?
I'm not really familar with all of the professions, so let me check real quick and find the right one. Ok, I looked it up on Harry Potter Wiki and the profession I would choose would be a musician. I know muggles can be musicians and you asked me what I would do in the "Wizarding world" but technically wizards can be musicans too. So, Hah! I would choose this because it's hardly considered a job in my book. A job is where you have to work, and to me, playing music that people enjoy isn't work; it's pure fun. Having people relate to your feelings and thoughts that you put out there would bring people together, which is a wonderful thing. Because of this, I believe music has the ability to make the world a better place. Also, if I'm going to be doing something for the rest of my life, I'm going to make sure its fun and worthwhile, otherwise I would feel like my life is a waste. Living for nothing isn't exactly a great plan to me.

  1. You have to venture deep into the Forbidden Forest one night. Pick one Harry Potter character other than Hagrid and one object (muggle or magical), besides your wand, that you'd want with you.
I would choose Harry Potter to venture deep into the forest with me. I would choose him because he is loyal(therefore he wouldn't turn his back on me in the middle of a crisis), he is an auror(hence he is awesome at defeating dangerous creatures), and he is hot. Wait-What?
Anyways...the weapon I would choose wouldn't be my wand, but it would be the Elder Wand. The Elder Wand is the most powerful wand. Ever. 'Nuff said.

  1. If you had the opportunity to live forever, but your family and friends did not, what would you choose? And if you did choose to live forever, what would you do with eternity?
I defintiley wouldn't want to live forever. Especially if I had to live in this place called Earth. Alot of the time, I find life meaningless so I don't see the point in living forever. Now, if my family and friends lived forever, I would want to live forever with them because we need eachother for support and love. Of which, noone can truly live without. Without love, there would be no feeling left besides hate and lonliness. In my opinion, living in hatred isn't a pleasurable way to live.

  1. If you could travel back in time to one point, when and where would you go? Why?
I have no idea. I would probably go back in time to a point in my life where I could use the knowledge I have now to change that point of time for the better. This would most likely be when I first entered seventh grade. During this time, i didn't talk to anybody and I was extremley suicidal. I didn't understand what the feelings I had of not belonging, isolation, worthlessness, and hoplessness were so I merley thought I was doomed to a life of misery. But later on I realized that all of the confusion of feeling like I was ment to be someone else came from me being transgender. I would go back in time to reexperience seventh grade without the suicidal feelings.
Actually, if I had the choice, I wouldn't go back in time. My expeirences are what made me who I am today. And if I did go back to that time and place, although I would feel less suicidal, the people around me wouldn't change, making me living in that point of time pointless. Even now, I feel like living is pointless. Even if I did feel happiness, what would be the point of feeling so? What is the meaning in life itself? There is none. This knowledge is very depressing to me, but I wouldn't commit suicide because there wouldn't be a point in that either. There's not even a point in typing these words right now.

  1. What HP character do you identify with most and why?
This is a really hard question for me because in my opinion, I can't exactly be compared to anyone. I am a very unique individual. Saying this makes me think of Tom Riddle a.ka. Lord Voldemort as he changed his name to something very unique just because "Tom" was a very popular name. He despised being like other people. I guess, in some ways, I am like Tom. I know what it's like to love, but I hardly do, for I have trouble trusting people and opening up.
So maybe I'm more like Harry Potter. Harry is brave; as am I, he is pure of heart; as am I, and he is loyal to his friends; as am I. I am brave because I do what I need to do, even if I am scared to or I don't want to. An example of this would be sticking up for myself and my friends when we were being harrassed. I am pure of heart because I do not wish to cause harm to others and I wish for things to be truthful and righteous. I am loyal to my friends because if I didn't want to be friends with them, I would say so, not talk behind their back or something to that extent. And to be ture friends with someone, you must be loyal without it having to be a chore.

  1. What would you see if you looked into the Mirror of Erised?
I would see myself in my true form(as a man because I'm transgender and currently have a woman's body), happy and successful with my current family happy and my future wife and children happy. This is my greatest desire because to live life honestly and happily is the most you can get out of life itself. I would be living honestly because people would see that I am a man, not something untruthful like a woman. I would be happy because I would feel like I could live for something; to make sure my children never felt the way I did, that they never had a thought about life being pointless because they were too busy being happy.

  1. Do you believe that moral actions should be judged by the intentions behind them, or by the consequences they create?
Honestly, I think the answer to this question is obvious. Actions should be judged by the intentions behind them. An insane person could kill someone, believing that they are evil, and that in doing so would bring world peace. This action doesn't make the person bad, it makes him good. Even though a life was lost, it is the intention that should be judged. To judge someone is determine if they are good or bad. The outcome of something they did has nothing to do with the intentions behind it.

  1. What was your ideal job as a kid? Has that changed? What is your ideal job now?
My ideal job as a kid was to be an author. It hasn't really changed; I just have more options. My options are: an author, musician, psychologist, or comic book writer. My ideal job now is either of these options. I have no idea which one to choose. I wish I could choose all of them, but that would take up way too much of my time. (Unless I had that time turner thingy. Lmfao)
I would love to be an author because I could bring the reader to another world; a world where everything makes sense and they are not waiting for their father to come home and beat them. And I would be putting a piece of my soul out there for everyone to see, and if people would acknowledge and communicate with my ideas; whether it be positive or negative, then I would feel like I accomplished something; getting my word out there in the world, having a recognized thought.
I would love to be a musician even more than a writer. It's basically the same reasons, but I think music is more powerful in sharing thoughts. Plus, music is just enjoyable to listen to and I would love to entertain people and make their day better.
I would be honored to be a psychologist because I love to help people out with their problems and the way people think fascinates me.
To be a comic book writer would be awesome because I love to draw and images provoke emotion in people just as music can. My reasoning is basically the same with being a muscian and writer.

  1. If you were able to invent one spell, potion, or charm, what would it do, what would you use it for or how would you use it, and what would you call it?
I would invent a potion that cures all mental illnesses the potion drinker has. This includes depression, mental retardation, autism, etc. I would call the potion "Life Saver" because that's basically what it is; a life saver. Life Saver would permantley eliminate all the mental illnesses in the world; making it easier for people to have a happier life. Something that I myself have a hard time accomplishing. And to see the world for what it really is, although extremley ugly, is beautiful in itself.

  1. If you were to face a boggart, what would it turn into? And what does it turn into when you throw the counter-spell, Riddikulus?
The boggart would, ironically, turn into myself. A twisted, demented, evil form of myself. I say this because my greatest fear is that I will turn into a monster/ I am one(meataphorically speaking). I don't know why I fear this but sometimes I think that I am a monster, a horrible person, that I'm not good enough.
When I would say “Riddikulus” the bogart would turn into a flamboyant gay man with rollerblades, a half shirt, and polka dotted tights.I can’t believe I just described Show Pony, Gerard Way’s character, without realizing it at first. Well, the image is pretty funny.

  1. What do you look for in a friend?
My ideal friend is someone you can talk to about anything, someone who wouldn't walk out on you even if the whole world did, has a good sense of humor, and is kind. I think the reason why I would like a friend like this is obvious; it would be awesome.

  1. What trait most annoys you about other people?
Selfishness; when someone HAS to have their way and is not willing to compromise whatsever. That annoys me SO much. I think these people are so involved in their own world that they don't realize other people exsist and have feelings too. In a way, I kind of feel bad for them because they are so selfish they can't realize things the way they really are; not about them.

  1. What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
2. Good Intention
3. Honest/Fair
I am insightfull because I can look behind the reasons of people's behavior. I have good intentions because I would never want another to suffer. I am honest and fair because I see no reason to lie unless you're ashamed of yourself/what you've done. I am artistic and musical because I just am.

  1. What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
1.Low self-esteem (I don't think highly of myself for reasons I don't know of. Probably because people my age have teased me harshly for being so different)
2.Distrusting of strangers/acquantinces(I believe that noone will understand or like me. Probably because my family doesn't comprehend or understand that I am actually a boy; that I am someone.)
3. Laziness/Lack of motivation(You wouldn't feel like doing stuff if you thought that everything was pointless either)
4. Gender identity(This isn't neccessarily a weakness, it just makes me weak because of all the stress it causes)
5.Greed(I have stolen money from relatives and products from stores but I have recently stopped. It makes me feel good to know that I can get something without giving anything. Perhaps a coping method to feel like I have some control over my life.)

    1. Define in your own words the following key traits:
    • Courage:Despite being afraid or not wanting to, they push their fear aside in order to do what needs to be done.

    • Loyalty:When someone stays with someone and doesn't betray them.

    • Intelligence:Thoughtfullness, not neccessarily knowledge of facts

    • Ambition:The desire to achieve
