Awaiting Sorting

  • What sort of profession in the wizarding world would you choose and why? I would love to be the Hogwarts librarian. I would enjoy working at the library because I personally love literature. I find libraries to wonderful places and I enjoy helping people find books. I would want to work at the Hogwarts library because not only is it a library but it’s a magical library. I mean can you imagine the kind of awesome books that must be shelved there? Seriously that would be my dream job!
  • If you could teach one class at Hogwarts, what would it be and why? Teach? Not exactly my calling to be honest. Still if I had to pick a class I would probably pick History of Magic. I find history as a subject to be fascinating. I'm pretty sure magical history must be full of interesting stories and events. Also I would choose that because the teacher in cannon is just awful. I mean he takes all the joy out of trying to learn what should be a very important and interesting subject. I believe that if the subject was taught in a more engaging or interactive manner the class would have been better liked.
  • This year, The TriWizard Tournament is being held once again and you're of age. Do you put your name in the Goblet? Why or why not? Sweet Merlin, no! I would absolutely die of embarrassment if I had to get up in front of all three schools and fight dragons and merfolk or whatever the tasks for the tournament where. I would probably have a nervous breakdown if I was actually chosen. No thank you, someone else can have the eternal glory and the ulcers. However I would probably help and support whoever became the Hogwarts champion.
  • If you could choose your animagus form, what would it be and why? Well this is assuming you can have some sort of magical creature for your animagus, but if I could chose my animagus form I would want a winged cat. I saw an awesome picture of one on deviantart once and I remember thinking that if I could choose any animal to turn into it would be that one. It was a kind of awkward and silly looking leopard-ish cat with double white wings. It just reminded me of myself. I think I am a very cat-like person, I am lazy and I tend to want to socialize with other people on MY terms only. The whole wings thing is because I think it would be awesome to fly, but funnily enough I am terrified of heights. I think having my own wings and being in complete control of whether I fall or not would alleviate some of the fear. Although I guess if magical cats are out of the question something like Crookshanks wouldn't be so bad.
  • What HP character do you identify with most and why? Luna Lovegood is my kindred spirit. She's definitely the character I identify with the most. The first time she was introduced in cannon I knew she was going to be one of my favorite characters. I love her because I can see a lot of myself in her. We're both odd and really looked down upon or laughed at by most of the people in our chosen high schools. My friends actually say people used to ask them why they were friends with me because I was so odd. I was the kind of girl that would walk into things (people, lockers, pillars, doors, etc) because I had my nose stuck in a good book. I would laugh out loud as I was reading or I would talk to myself without even realizing it. I'm sure my obsession with fanfiction and Harry potter could be likened to Luna talking about Ministry conspiracies and Nargles. I think that Luna was a wonderfully eccentric character and more then that she was comfortable in her eccentricity. She never apologized for being different and I admire that about her.
  • What would you see if you looked into the Mirror of Erised? I think I would see myself as being truly content and happy in my own skin. I would see myself being happy with the person I am instead of wondering what could be better. I would be surrounded by my friends and I would be smiling and laughing and enjoying life.
  • If you won a million dollars, how would you spend it? Well it varies honestly from day to day. Mostly I would set at least half aside to pay for schooling and housing. Next I would give a quarter of what's left to my mum and my sisters. I would give another quarter to my dad and my other siblings. I would put most of the rest away for savings. I would probably leave like 5,000 out for splurging. At least I hope I would have the sense to use the money like that, however I will be the first to admit I have awful money management skills. It’s very likely I would save half and splurge half. I might give half to my family and save a quarter and splurge a quarter. But the first instance is what I would TRY to do.
  • What was your ideal job as a kid? Has that changed? What is your ideal job now? As a kid I wanted to be a veterinarian. I was convinced that was what I was going to do all the way up to like sixth grade. That's when I saw how much blood and other bodily fluids where involved, not to mention the grades I would have to get. So yeah I decided that wasn't going to happen. I kind of waffled back and forth up until senior year when I decided I want to be a librarian. I enjoy libraries and I love books so it seemed a natural choice. I’m still trying to decide exactly what kind of librarian I want to be but I figure I got like three to four more years to figure it out.
  • 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? Hmm, not sure if it’s already been done but I would invent a spell to make a Grimourie (is that the right spelling?). Now I could be wrong but my understanding is that a Grimourie is a collection of knowledge kind of like an encyclopedia. I would create a spell that could take a book and make something like a database of knowledge. It would link all the books in a library to the book the spell is cast on. Then all you would have to do was say a subject, author, keyword, whatever and all the books on that subject would show up in the book. If you wanted just a short paragraph or essay on a subject instead of the whole book you could get excerpts from all the books, kind of like reading online books. If you wanted to read the book itself you could say a command and the book would fly to you. The Grimourie would be self updating so you could as many books as you would like to the book. I would use the Grimourie as a database/card catalogue or as a way to index my personal library. The spell would be called Gelamencientia.
  • 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? It would be either a giant creepy crawly insect (roach or spider) or a group of people pointing and laughing at me. I have awful stage fright and I can't stand creepy crawly insects, seriously I shriek and jump on furniture if I even think I see a spider or roach. Let's see how to make them amusing; well in the case of the insects I would copy off of Ron in the movie and put roller blades or maybe party hats or something silly on them. If it were the people I would do the clichéd picturing them all in their underwear. Only I would make it embarrassing underwear with puppies or clowns or something on them.
  • What do you look for in a friend? I look for people that have a sense of humor about themselves and life in general. I want friends that will laugh with me when I do something ditzy or embarrassing. I want friends who I can be myself around and I don't have to worry about looking like an idiot. I want people who would be right next to me walking into walls or rambling on and on about meaningless and off the wall topics
  • What trait most annoys you about other people? I absolutely hate people who think they are god's gift to humanity and that they know all the answers to everything. The kind of people that are always right and your always wrong, and are really insulting about it to. The kind of people who think we should all be a certain way and that those who deviate from that certain way are worthless abominations or something. In short I hate those who are intolerant, narrow-minded, hypocritical, and judgmental.
  • What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities? My five best qualities are my willingness to learn, my tolerance for other people, my ability to laugh at myself, my love of reading, and once I get started my ability to work hard. I view these as my best qualities because I think they help make me a better person. I think a willingness to learn and a tolerance of other people will help me become a better member of society. I think the ability to laugh at myself and a love of reading make me a better friend and a more interesting person. I think the ability to work hard, once I get started working, is important because it says that I won’t be afraid to work for what I want.
  • What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities? I am an incredibly shy person, it used to be so bad that my therapist diagnosed my with social anxiety disorder. I've gotten a little better but I still tend to hold back and not try new things. I am a very introverted person, I'm also lazy and I procrastinate a lot so I tend to spend most of my time by myself on the computer. Seriously the only kind of social life I have is money nights with three of my closest friends, and it took my 19 years to work up to that! I am also very pigheaded at times. When I don't want to do something I will not do it, not only will I not do it I will through a temper tantrum if they try to force me. So to recap my top five worst qualities are: Shyness, being Introverted, Laziness, Procrastination, and Stubbornness or being Pigheaded
  • Define in your own words the following key traits:
    • Courage:Courage is standing up for what you believe in and letting no one tell you any different. Courage is also being a leader and being willing to step up and make changes if you feel there needed.
    • Loyalty:Loyalty is sticking by those you care for know matter what. This is being someone's friend even if everyone else thinks there weird or odd. It is supporting in your friends and trying your best to help them be better people. Loyalty if being an awesome friend to those who are friends to you
    • Intelligence:This is actually a pretty wide ranging word. It can mean those who are book smart, those who know everything there is to know about certain subjects. People who are academically inclined, those who are chalk full of book smarts. This can be those who are just naturally smart they don't really study they just naturally know things, either they have excellent memories or they just instinctively grasp certain concepts. Intelligence is also those who know people and body language, those who can read the world around them.
    • Ambition:The desire to go places, to be more then what you currently are. The desire to put everything you have into achieving a certain goal. These are the people that devote everything to finishing a certain project.
