  • Music:

Sort me, please?

  • What sort of profession in the wizarding world would you choose and why?
    Most likely something to do with potions or books -- I am a bibliophile and a historian, but I am also quite interested in the intricacies involved with potion making. I mean, you take some seemingly random things, put them together, and with a bit of finesse, you have something that can make literally anything happen.

  • If you could teach one class at Hogwarts, what would it be and why?
    Potions, for all of the reasons I mentioned above. ...although it would be quite difficult, considering that there are people that just don't get it, and that could be extremely dangerous in a practical setting.

  • 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. While I think a bit of competition is healthy, the TriWizard tournament is quite dangerous, and I enjoy having four fully-functioning limbs. I would prefer to watch it from a distance -- not much of a risk-taker, I'm afraid.

  • If you could choose your animagus form, what would it be and why?
    My animagus from would most likely be a cat -- one, they're slinky and graceful, which is rather neat. Two, they're wicked intelligent. Three, people expect them to be independent, so most people won't think twice about a cat doing its own thing. I think it would be useful in blending in.

  • What HP character do you identify with most and why?
    Severus Snape -- he was kind of screwed in the luck department, which is kind of my life. He screwed up his chances with the love of his life by making a really bad decision, and then had to teach the child that looked like its father, who was not Snape. While I must admit, I have never been in that particular situation, I've been in one slightly similar (involving a boy who looked spectacularly like Remus Lupin), and I can start to guess how that would feel. Which is not good. Point being, my natural luck is garbage. Unfortunate, but true. I don't remember where all of this was going, so I'll end it there.

  • What would you see if you looked into the Mirror of Erised?
    Myself, alone, cooking. My family is mid-sized, but they're all really loud and invasive, so I never get any privacy.

  • If you won a million dollars, how would you spend it?
    I would buy a hybrid car, a flat, and put the rest in a CD.

  • What was your ideal job as a kid? Has that changed? What is your ideal job now?
    My ideal job as a kid -- I had two. I wanted to be either a pastry chef or a librarian. My ideal jobs have not changed; I'm applying to culinary school.

  • 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 charm that had to do with music -- you cast it on a piece of parchment, and it transcribes the notes to whatever it is that you're listening to, until you cancel the charm (Back story: I play the piano. Sometimes, I'll hear a piece of music and get the urge to figure out how to play it, but I can't figure out the proper notes because there's too much instrumentation, so it takes me forever to find the music, and order it, find the funds to buy it, pick it up, etc). It would be called Transcrive musique, which, in French, means literally "I transcribe music".

  • 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?
    Likely a dementor -- I'm not afraid of many things, but dementors force you to kind of re-live every bad experience, and that terrifies me, to be quite honest. If I threw the counter spell, it might turn into a bobble head figurine, or perhaps the Grim Squeaker (from the Terry Pratchett series Diskworld)

  • What do you look for in a friend?
    Some kind of loyalty -- they don't have to be attached at the hip, but I would expect them to defend me to some extent, were I being disparaged in some way.
    Intelligence is a must -- I would prefer to be able to have an actual conversation occasionally, rather than having to point and grunt.

  • What trait most annoys you about other people?
    Misplaced arrogance. Don't get me wrong, I am all for arrogance if you really are fabulous, but so few people actually are. This is especially true in the case of grammar -- you have no idea how many people I have to deal with who claim to have fabulous grammar, and then misspell and mis punctuate. I think I have an icon that has that on it somewhere...

  • What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
    1. Being able to distract people from what it was that they were talking about, which is useful when you're getting yelled at.
    2. Being able to make someone smile when they don't want to -- also useful when they're angry at you.
    3. I have a wicked sense of direction -- put me in the middle of a foreign city, and I'll find my way around.
    4. I'm pretty adaptable to any situation -- I may not particularly like the situation, but I can find a way to deal with it until I can rope myself into something better.
    5. I am pretty observant, but know how to stay quiet, which can come in handy when you need something and need to convince someone to get it for you.

  • What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
    1. I am terribly messy. Granted, I could find nearly anything in a mess of my own creation, but it does tend to annoy.
    2. I'm kind of snobby sometimes -- I don't mean to be, but it just kind of ends up like that.
    3. I judge people, which might actually go with snobby, but...if I see a person anywhere, for any amount of time over half a minute, I tend to make up a story to go with you.
    4. I am extremely neurotic about my own space. I need it, and if you mess with it, I lash out.
    5. If I'm doing something and anyone comes up to interrupt, I get unbelievably angry at my concentration being broken. I haven't found a single person to whom this does not apply.

  • Define in your own words the following key traits:

    • Courage: Acting in the presence of fear to do what you know to be right.
    • Loyalty: Sticking to what/who you believe in, regardless of the opinion of anyone else.
    • Intelligence: Having knowledge, and being able to utilize it properly when the time comes.
    • Ambition: Knowing what you want, even in the smallest measure, and doing everything you can to achieve your goal, no matter what the cost.

  • Name: Grey McLean

  • Where did you find out about us? I honestly don't remember. It may have been a random interest search, while scouring the net for icons.
  • Do you plan on being active in the communities once you are sorted? As much as I can, yes.
