EDITED: Qualities & Weaknesses



  • What sort of profession in the wizarding world would you choose and why?
    It would have to be something that changes every day. I can't stand the idea of going into work every day and doing the same thing. I get bored just thinking about it! If it were at all feasible I think I'd quite like being a Stunt Wizard. I mean, think of all the completely awesome things you'd get to do! Jump off of broomsticks, be involved in completely wicked auror chases, eat shifty looking things for some cash! Aye, I'd be careful with the gigs I took though, I wouldn't do anything COMPLETELY dangerous.

  • If you could teach one class at Hogwarts, what would it be and why?
    Okay, I'm going to jump from canon to fanon for a moment, please bare with me. If any of you have read sarahtales's Underwater Light you'll be aware of Creative Magic. However, just incase you haven't I'll give you a brief summary... It's like this - sometimes in the wizarding world an artist, muscian or writer will create something so powerful that people just become entranced in it. Even the muggles do... they just get so enthralled that they don't know where the time went and it can only be described as being 'just like magic'. If it were possible I would like to teach Creative Magic... if not, I'd really love to teach Transfiguration - just the idea of turning one thing into another is just so cool to me.

  • 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?
    I'm one of those people who does many things without thinking them through properly. So, I supposed I would probably enter my name in a moment of sheer stupidity or vanity - only to run away with one of the judges the morning of the first task to get married in Siberia. No, seriously, that's probably what would happen. Or when I am handed my miniture dragon I would promptly faint or go to the bathroom in my pants. Either is plausible.

  • If you could choose your animagus form, what would it be and why?
    I would really like to fly - so I suppose I might be a hippogriff or a thestral. Probably actually a thestral because I really think it would be cool to be invisable to some people and not to others.

  • What HP character do you identify with most and why?
    Quite honestly? Fred and George Weasley. I haven't got a very big family but the family I do have are extremely close. We haven't got a lot of money either, but we know how to have a good time and make eachother happy.

  • What would you see if you looked into the Mirror of Erised?
    When I look into the Mirror of Erised, I think I would see me happy. I don't think I would see myself owning anything else or having anyone else in my life. I wouldn't want to change myself because my flaws are what make me who I am. I have everything I want right now... my only real goal in life it to always be happy when possible.

  • If you won a million dollars, how would you spend it?
    I think I would travel the world with a nice big tent. When I'm ready to go back home, if I have enough money, I think it would be pretty awesome to have a room with trampoline floors. :D

  • What was your ideal job as a kid? Has that changed? What is your ideal job now?
    I actually wanted to be a teacher for the longest time - however, I don't like structure or to much responsibility. XD Now? I think I'd quite like being either a Vet Tech. I wouldn't like putting animals to sleep, so I wouldn't be able to be a Vet. However, I really like animals and I know I would enjoy caring for them.

  • 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 actually probably invent a physical gender switching spell. I know a ton of people who are transgendered... and I am myself. It would just make it a whole lot easier transition-wise AND money-wise. I would call it Inconstanza which is 'changeability' in latin.

  • 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?
    I would probably see myself alone... without my friends and family. Maybe an auror telling me they were killed or missing... my biggest fear is definitley being alone in the world because if you don't have those you love... you really haven't got anything. Riddikulus? The auror turning into a clown or handing me a million dollar check and telling me I was on Candid Pensieve. :D

  • What do you look for in a friend?
    Loyalty is probably one of the most important traits I look for in a friend. If they won't stand by you through the good and the bad, then they're not really a friend, yeah? I also look for a sense of humor, you need to know how to laugh and make me laugh.

  • What trait most annoys you about other people?
    Probably... lack of common sense. For instance, if you're clutching your leg and screaming in agony - for someone to ask "Uh, are you alright?" Well, no, of course not! However, lack of common sense can be funny... like when you see a guy trying to work a coffee machine when it clearly has an 'out of order' sign... or pulling on a door that says 'push'. XD

  • What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities?
    1. Friendly: I introduce myself to people I don't know all the time... I just really like getting to know new people.
    2. Creative: I always have a project going... whether it's a painting/sculpture or some sort of work of fiction.
    3. Reasonably Smart: I'd have to say I have more common sense than book smarts. I recieved good grades all through school but I had to study very, very hard for them. Common sense just came more naturally.
    4. Funny: I pride myself in having a sense of humor. I think that's what gets most of us through the tough times.
    5. Responsible When Needed To Be: I like to have fun/not be in charge for the most part. However, when I'm really needed to be, I can be responsible.

  • What do you think are your top five weaknesses or worst qualities?
    1. Procrastination: I seem to wait until the very, very last minute to do things. I just tend not to think it's nessisary beforehand.
    2. Organization: My belongings are always everywhere. Seriously, they are. I also, tend to have a half formed plan in my mind most of the time of what I'm doing.
    3. Lazyness: If given the option, on a day off, I'll just hang out at home with my friends/family. I usually have to be given that extra little nudge to actually get something done.
    4. Often Tired: I have a tendency to tire myself out with all my little projects.
    5. Takes On To Much: When I see something I want to do, I tend to take it on without thinking about the rest of my work load.

  • Define in your own words the following key traits:

    • Courage: I think courage is one of those things you don't know you have until you really, really need it.
    • Loyalty: Loyalty is something I look for in others and in myself. I think it's one of the most important traits a person can harbor.
    • Intelligence: I think there's two different forms of intelligence... book-smarts and common sense. I think common sense is more important to have... because you can know everything about dragons but when one swoops down upon you, you need to know to run away. XD
    • Ambition: I think ambition can be a good or a bad thing. It can help you get where you want to go... or I think some people become so obsessed with their ambition that they can't think of anything else. When it's balanced I think it's a great thing to have.
