  • What sort of profession in the wizarding world would you choose and why?
    I would work at Flourish and Blotts, the book store of Diagon alley. I've always loved to read, and having access to all of those marvelous and wonderful books would make my head swim. All of those magical books at my finger tips would give me access to some of the greatest power in the wizarding world. Also, the store's location would put me at, basically, the centre of the wizarding world. A good deal of notable shops would be located close by, and the constant swirl of new people would give me a never-ending source for gossip, stories, and news. In short; power.

  • If you could teach one class at Hogwarts, what would it be and why?
    Potions: because i love the art. As i do not, in this muggle world, have access to magical ingredients, i stick to cooking, but, although i am quite a good cook, i long to make wondrous elixirs that would have the ability to change a person's mood, personality, or even appearance. I believe potions has long been overlooked as a useless thing you'll never use again once you're out of school, but with someone with dedication and appreciative at the helm, potions could be just as meaningful as D.A.D.A.

  • 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?
    No. I don't think the cup would choose me, unless of course it wanted to to stretch my courage. However, i wouldn't want to face death--i much prefer the side lines in general, but i would cheer my heart out for all of those competing. in short, i have a bit of a cowardly-streak. I am brave when it is in my interest to be so.

  • If you could choose your animagus form, what would it be and why?
    A Bengal Tiger. they are small-ish so i could still sneak around to some extent, they have build in weapons, so i wouldn't be defenseless and they are strong, so i would be able to do things like carry people, or drag things. And they're fuzzy and orange; can't go wrong with that. Think big teeth, big claws, thick fir. Me.

  • What HP character do you identify with most and why?
    Ginny, mostly because throughout the first few books she is overlooked a lot by the other characters as unimportant. however, when push comes to shove she is smart, funny, and brave. I feel overlooked sometimes, sometimes i feel the need to prove myself. and of course, in the end she gets the guy of her dreams, and [me being the stupid romantic that i am] i hope that happens for me too. Basically, she can be a conniving bitch when she wants to be. But then again, we all can. And its not bad thing--sometimes its required.

  • What would you see if you looked into the Mirror of Erised?
    i see myself surrounded by love. love from my friends, my family, even from strangers. love and acceptance. This is most likely because i tend to feel as if i dont fit in well in most circumstances. I act at ease, but often my mind is racing; analyzing and observing. I feel that most people are benieth me.

  • If you won a million dollars, how would you spend it?
    1--college [because an education is worth its weight in gold]

    2--some to my family [because why the heck not; i love those folk]

    3--taxes obviously [because however hard you try one can never seem to get away from them (that and i am a realist and lets face it; death and taxes are the only sure things in life)]

    4--charity [because how really needs a million dollars all for themselves?]


  • What was your ideal job as a kid? Has that changed? What is your ideal job now?
    when i was 5 i wanted to be a princess-ballerina-mom-part-time-firefighter. And oh yes that has changed; i think it might be frowned upon if it hadn't. no, now i want to be a psychologist; in order to help people were it matters most; their minds. However, i do still have my deep love of books and that makes me want to lean towards being a librarian, as exciting as that sounds lol

  • 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?
    A charm; i would want one that would enable me to point at any given piece of print and say "lego!" [complete with a spiral ending in pointing at the text via the wand]
    and have all of the knowledge of the text come to me, as if i had read it. i would call it "lego" [Latin for read] and use it for homework, and furthering my knowledge. Listen people, this isn't a contradiction; I love to read, but who has the time to read every single book in the world and go to the loo too? No one!

  • 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?
    A giant shark; swimming right at me. a white shark to be exact. and when i used the counter-spell [if i could get that far with out fainting] it would turn into a guppy--like flounder from the little mermaid. The reason behind this is i was almost attacked by a shark as a child. And I'll tell you about it if I really must.

  • What do you look for in a friend?
    honesty, a sense of humor, ability to keep secrets, and a desire to spend time with me--i want someone who is worth knowing basically. awesomely pink hair is a plus too. and a love of Harry Potter is always good. and of course, self confidence! biggest turn off ever if you dont have a pinch of that in your system. ooh, and independence too; i hate clingy people.
  • What trait most annoys you about other people?
    immaturity--it embarrassing to be seen with them. you know the old saying, "you can't choose your family, but you can choose your friends"? well i always wonder if people, in seeing me with the moron, are thinking that. so yes, i like it when a person knows how to act their age. I like it when your friends improve your image.

  • What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
    hmm;
    1-easy to talk to [because i like to listen and figure out where you are coming from as a person. "what your angle is" so to speak.]
    2-available to listen/be with [because i only go to school 2 days a week and work is slow so it doesn't happen much--in short, i have literally countless hours that i will gladly fill with fun people.]
    3-appreciation of humor [i am not classically funny, i more do physical comedy. so when some witty fellow comes along i always find them wildly attractive as people. they can make the jokes and i can laugh at them]
    4-general intelligence/problem solving [i dont panic in times of stress or uncertainty, so i can keep my head. also, i am a highly logical person--think Spock--so i'm not too driven by emotions....for the most part]
    5-not scared to ask questions [unless its asking for free water when i haven't ordered anything else--i feel bad about that]. I am this way because the only way one learns is to ask. And i like to learn.

  • What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
    1-sometimes big mouth [as in if its someone i dont feel much loyalty too i will spill any secret they tell me; as long as its not to bad.] why? because i can. It's power.
    2-bounces from too-loud to too-quiet [i apparently dont like people to hear me, as i never seem to be at the right level vocally. why? because i was raised in a quite household.]
    3-can't say no to boys who like me, even if i don't like them [i hate hurting peoples feelings. but dating people you're not head-over-heels for is a bad deal and hurtful to everyone involved, so thats not happening anymore...hopefully]
    4-doesn't interact enough with people around her [often because i'm shy-ish around new people, but also because i like to listen rather then talk. That and a lot of people in the world annoy me.]
    5-goes on sparknotes too often [i dont have time for things! so i cheat. Also not a contradiction; I just said i dont have time for all of the things I'd like to do. Hence the Charm to help me read more things faster. I love to read, but it can't be my whole life. Sparknotes are my charm for the muggle world.]

  • Define in your own words the following key traits:

    • Courage: the ability to do something you know to be dangerous--not a lack of fear, but an acceptance of it. think lion-ish. This whole question is reminding me of the lion king.
    • Loyalty: staying true to those who put their trust in you--fulfilling expectations of friendship. what i dont often have [with a few exceptions of course]
    • Intelligence: common sense actually put to use, that and the desire to learn more/actually doing so [e.g. not twits]
    • Ambition: to have a goal and to through yourself into the reaching of said goal. to make effort to achieve it. [unlike the mindless mass]
