If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? You know, there are so many things that need changing, but they’ve been there forever… and although they’re not pleasant, they sort-of make the world what it is. I, for one, really like the world. I may be full of war, poverty, hunger, etc., but when is it not? (wizard world) If I could change one thing about the world, it would be the system of currency. Maybe it’s just because most of my life I have been using muggle money, but it still seems so much easier to figure out than Galleons, Sickles and Knuts. Wizard currency is very random and, at times, very confusing.
What makes a person respectable? I usually give someone respect based on how much respect they give. Someone that sits there and treats nobody around them with respect, in my opinion, doesn’t deserve any. Rich, poor, royal, dog, cat, man, woman, none of that matters. It’s that “treat others as you would like to be treated” stuff from kindergarten that really affects the way I look at/treat other people.
What do you look for in a friend? I look for someone I can trust. So often we find ourselves with a friend that betrays us, and I’m no different. I have been screwed over and betrayed and mistreated by more friends than I have been enemies. It doesn’t matter if we like different music, movies, clothes, people careers… what matters is that II feel that I can trust them and that they can trust me.
What are your hobbies? I have a wide-range of things that could be considered hobbies. Get rich quick schemes are a hobby of mine. I’m always coming up with some new business venture just trying to earn myself a couple of bucks. They never work or usually lose interest. Other than that reading, the internet (more of an addiction, really), Harry Potter… and I mean it. My room is currently being transformed into number twelve, Grimmauld Place and making new things. As weird as that sounds, it’s true. I’ve recently discovered how to make butterbeer and home-made cosmetics.
Have or would you give time and money to a charity? Time, yes, money no. The reason I never give money is… well I don’t have any! Although, I always give clothes, food, coats and if they need it, time. I’ve recently discovered I am a pack-rat and am always trying to get rid of all of the stuff that’s piling up in my house, and they need it.
What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish? Short-term goals, that’s all I have. I want to finish my room. When I’m done I want to show it to HP fans and not have them say “this looks nothing like grimmauld place…”. A very small and seemingly meaningless goal, yes, but my goal none the less. I recently left school and this is what fills my days and I have been putting A LOT of work into it.
Who is your role model? Oh wow… I don’t even think I have one. I’ve had John Lennon, Jimmy Page, DaVinci, the usual you know. Lately I don’t have role models, or idols. Most of the people I look up to, if at all, are musicians. I would never be able to get up on stage and sing something I wrote and I can’t even play guitar in front of one person! I think the reason I always looked up to them is, I’ve always wanted to get up and perform in front of people but I’ve never had the guts. Other than that, and I know this will sound absolutely ridiculous… Molly Weasley. For the last couple of onths I’ve been thinking that growing up to be Mrs. Weasley, well it wouldn’t be half bad. She is amazing. Not only does she do all of the “mom” stuff (which is a pretty big task considering her children and the number of them) she cares for all other people, she’s helping to save the world (there’s that ridiculous part) and she is just a phenomenal woman. She does EVERYTHING.
What trait most annoys you about other people? The thing that bothers me the most is when women who are pregnant smoke/ do drugs/ drink while pregnant. This makes me angry to the point of tears. I know it’s not a quality that everyone could possess, but it bothers more than anything in the world. You are endangering that life of someone who can’t fight back and doesn’t even know what’s going on. They’re depending on you for life and safety, and you are putting them in severe danger. It’s not fair.
What do you want to do for a living? The universal question! I have been asked this nearly everyday since I was 10! The answer has always been, and remains, “I don’t know.” I am currently… well I guess the proper term is a “Drop-Out”. School is something I feel is wasting my time and it makes me very unhappy. I’m not stupid, but I hate school more than any other place on the planet. It really is just not for me. I don’t want to do anything for a living, I want to do everything. There is so much I want to do in my lifetime that picking just one would be totally unfair… to me and the world. If I was a wizard my dream job would be an herbologist or an Auror. Fighting evil with magtical plants is where it’s at.
If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do? Forget revenge, that’s dangerous. I would just do my best to help them get through it. With or without magic. As important as physical healing is, mental and emotional healing is the most important.
Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason? Considering what each one does, I could never even bring myself to try. I have no interest in killing, causing pain or controlling another person. Thos curses are unforgivable for a reason. The things those curses do are unforgivable even in the muggle world. My conceience would just eat my alive.
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities? I am loyal and brave when I need to be. I have eyes like a hawk and ears like a rabbit, I pay very much attention to details. I’m also killer on a broom.
What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities? Animals. Animals are a weakness. It could have fur, scales or feathers, I don’t care I’ll probably think it’s adorable and want to take it home and play with it. I am a daydreamer. A crazy daydreamer. I can space out for days. I’m slightly agoraphobic… aka a Home-body. As soon as I step foot outside the house I become paranoid… that’s when I pay attention to details. I don’t follow a lot of things through. There are so many things I want do that I usually abandon one thing to get something else done. The something else is often something fun, but of no help to anyone. Substance abusers. Although I hate addicts more than anything if I see someone who is intoxicated and needs help, I’m usually the first one there. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve been thrown up on or hassled for pain killers.
Define in your own words the following key traits:
Courage: Doing something that is very hard for YOU to do. Over-coming a fear to do something that needs to be done no matter what. Putting yourself in harms way, for the good of others.
Loyalty: if you are loyal, the thought of betrayal will never even come into your mind. Someone trustworthy who will stick by their friends no matter what. I think a great deal of courage is essential to being loyal.
Intelligence: I don’t exactly know how to define intelligence, but I do know that intelligence is not limited to book smarts and an academic education. I think intelligence and instincts tie in together and when you are smart enough to go with your gut and trust yourself, you’re incredibly intelligent.
Ambition: Your drive! It’s what keeps you going, and started you off in the first place. Ambition doesn’t necessarily include doing great things, and is not limited to career paths, but I think you’re ambition is really what controls the pursuit of happiness. I think you’re ambitious only if you know what you’re doing will contribute to you being happy or fulfilled in some way.

Age: 18 (I’ll be 19 in December)
What house do you think DOESN'T fit you? I hope I do not offend, but I do not belong in Slytherin. I don’t want to stereotype and say that everyone in Slytherin is cruel, or favours dark magic… but I’ve noticed quite a few do. I just don’t think I would be very happy or get along with very many people in Slytherin… I’m what you might call a hippie.
Where did you find out about us? gracelessiv’s user info. I don’t actually know that person, I just somehow ended up there.
