Here are the more specific answers in regards to my previous vague entry.
Name: Rhiannon aka Saiyaness
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? I still stick by my want of alcohol eradication, even though I'm well aware there's as much chance of that happening as world peace being declared tomorrow.
Who is your favorite Hogwarts teacher? Professor McGonnagal, as aforementioned, due to her no-nonsense attitude, her wry bemusement at the antics of youth and her inherent authority over them.
Who is your favorite character in Harry Potter? My feelings for Remus Lupin are torn between pity and respect, the first in obvious regards to his condition, the latter being the way he's handled it. Lupin always was beyond his years, even in childhood and it's no surprise that world weariness has caught up with him physically. I think for such a person to have experienced the horrible losses this man has, on top of the many grievances felt because of the beast he becomes, I still regard him as an incredibly strong person within who is capable of continuing his life and helping others despite his own demons. My evaluation is probably incorrect to the intellectuals of the HP fandom, so excuse me. I still favour Lupin regardless.
Who is your least favorite character in Harry Potter? I feel immense antipathy toward Percy Weasley because he seems the black sheep of the family, and misses that fire that burns inside the rest of the Weasley's that makes them special. The eldest children have left and built lives for themselves, but despite that it now seems Percy holds his family in ill-favour, as if he's turned his nose up at the family name too, as a Malfoy might do. I apologise for not being able to give further elaboration on the subject but that's what I feel.
What makes a person respectable? I strongly believe in a person needing to earn respect before it can be acknowledged even though I don't believe a person has to have made great accomplishments in order for it to be noticed. Personally, I prefer presentable people, with a firm knowledge and usage of ethics suitable to the society as a whole, and a demeanour suitable for whoever they might be talking to individually.
What is your take on religion? I was raised with many religions, and all of which have left me feeling empty, preferring to escape the tendrils of a belief system and cling to something more solid like science instead. I will never berate someone for their beliefs, and I admit to having turned away religious followers before, (most of the time ones I'd been involved in before) but I think weariness of world-religion-wars, not social retardation, had led me to scientific facts. I believe in evolution, despite true-bible-findings on the Discovery Channel or whatever. Either way, I don't particularly care.
What do you think about house elves? I like the idea of them being paid. One shouldn't work without pay, even if creatures such as them were created for that purpose. I think Dobby is a good example of independence and free-will though, even if it was bought.
What do you look for in a friend? Personally, my loyalty is hard to obtain, so basically I look for someone I know I can completely trust, even if it's just one person. Trust is everything to me.
Would you rather have friends and family or money and success? Friends and family, even though I'm bent on financial security, yet rest assured it's in the best interest of my family and their well-being, even if my given money is ill-spent. I will strive for succession when my family is self-secure.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? My apparent negative attitude toward life. Some bitterness is genetic, unchangeable, the rest is like bile eddying inside of me, growing day by bitter day. I can change it after I remove what causes me to harbour it within me but still...there's no easy fix.
What do you feel is your best quality? My intuition, and ability to act on it in suitable situations, mainly when someone is feeling horrible, and only I'll pick up on it. It pleases me to know that showing you care makes others feel better. I admit I've used it to get myself out of trouble before.
What are your hobbies? Making up entire worlds, and creating stories and characters within them, even if it never makes it to paper. Sometimes I write, sometimes I draw. Other times it just becomes one of many worlds I wish I was a part of. Making up characters has got to be an all-time fave though. I thoroughly enjoy reading too, whether it be a good fantasy/sci-fi series, fanfiction, history, science. I also love multimedia, whether it be movies, documentaries, anime <3 and what-not. Most of all I love my job, where I get to work with tons of animals, and then come home to all my own.
Do you want to have children? I'll make that decision when I'm older and wiser. I tell myself no, even though I'm told that's selfish. Why is it so selfish to bring a life into the world you can't afford to raise? Nevertheless, I see myself living happy and alone with my many pets.
Have or would you give time and money to a charity? In regards to some charities, I see it as pointless, especially if you don't see the results. I actually sponsor a child in Ethiopia and we exchange letters but I suppose that's different. Unfortunately I've never been particularly inclined toward a charity to want to devote a great deal of time and money upon, so thank you for making me feel guilty for that. >_<
If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do? Heh. Being an extremely possessive person, anyone or anything that touches my property, that includes friends, will meet a very sore end. You mess with the bull, you get the horns.
What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish? I want to be acknowledged and respected for the things I do, not chastised for the things I don't do. In regards to my future interests, (which are animal related) I want to expand my horizons, and gain a lot of knowledge. Mind you, I can't do this until I'm positive my family is secure so here I remain.
Who is your role model? My two wonderful bosses who took me in, looked after me and continue to do so. They started from nothing like I did and accomplished so much, even if it's only a singular business but despite that they're understanding, patient and forgiving when small wrongs are done. I wish I could be as headstrong as they are, and still be human at the same time. I respect people who are so 'together' in life.
What trait most annoys you about other people? A human's ignorance to that which they don't understand, whether they've been improperly educated on particular subjects, or easily influenced by outsiders in a desire to fit in.
What do you want to do for a living? I work in a fantastic pet-shop at the moment. I still don't know where I want to go from there but I'm interested in pet retail, as long as it's ethical. Mind you my pay isn't self-supporting, so one must obtain education in order to get a high paying job to live independently.
Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason? I said yes before, even though I thought afterward, 'I'm way too forgiving to do that' I mentioned earlier that possessions of mine harmed will suffer but even then wrong-doers should be dealt with legally. I think I'd show mercy.
What house do you think DOESN'T fit you? I said Slytherin before but after the previous evaluation apparently I'm good for it, which doesn't bother me, but I don't think there's any wrong or right answer on the matter considering people are sorted for their talents and strengths, not necessarily for their personalities...sometimes.
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities? In no specific order, 1)Intuition, 2)Logic, 3)Acceptance, 4)Suspicion and 5)Sympathy. I'm a good judge of character, but even if I accept someones beliefs straight off the bat that doesn't mean I trust them, but I can still pick up bad vibes instantly which had always worked in my favour. Despite that I'll still offer sympathy or a lending hand to strangers when it seems no once else will help them. I'm still no saint though, so that top 5 was the most difficult.
