ETA: I'm sorry about my terrible first application. I'd been awake for almost two days, and my mind was starting to black-out.
Here's my application:
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? I'd probably try to change everything that's bad, and end up doing nothing. It would be impossible for me to choose one. I tend to try to do all at once.
Who is your favorite Hogwarts teacher? Flitwick. I love his sense of humour. That part in OotP when he decided to leave part of the Twins' swamp, because it was an impressive bit of magic, just blew me away.
Who is your favorite character in Harry Potter? James, Sirius, Remus, Andromeda and Adult!Snape. And the Weasley males. For all the reasons people like them, but mostly because of their complexity.
Who is your least favorite character in Harry Potter? oooh.. *rubs hands* Saint!Potter himself, Molly, the most vulgar woman in the whole wide world, and Hagrid. I'm not particularly fond of Hermione and Lily, either *hides*. They're just... plain! Even Petunia, who I'd hate to meet in person, is interresting as a character. And I don't expect characters to be beautiful. I expect them to be whole, in every shade of grey.
What makes a person respectable? their strength of character.
What is your take on religion? I'd love to believe in something, anything, but apparently I lack that part of the brain scientists have discovered religious people have.
What do you think about house elves? they're too submissive, and that gets into my nerves.
What do you look for in a friend? everything I give them (which is a lot).
Would you rather have friends and family or money and success? Why not all? I'm sorry, but that cliché that says that rich and successful people can't be kind has to be one of the unfairest thing I've ever heard of.
If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? My procrastination habits, my lack of faith.
What do you feel is your best quality? My self-confidence, which allows me, above all, to be straight-forward. I'm not afraid of being straight-forward, because if people don't like it, it's their loss, reaaly, not mine.
What are your hobbies? Whatever strikes my fancy in the moment (a. k. a. too many hobbies for my own good).
Do you want to have children? Probably. In ten years.
Have or would you give time and money to a charity? Money, yes, whenever I can, time… I don't have any.
If your friend was attacked (by a person, animal, or (in the magic world) beast), what would you do? I'd jump forward, without thinking (I've done that, actually, more than once, risking myself over and over). If someone stabs the ones I love, I'm the one who bleeds, and when I'm hurt, I attack.
What is the one thing you would most like to accomplish? My mad dreams.
Who is your role model? Imelda Marcos? No, really, I don't have a role model. No one is perfect enough to be my role model, everyone has too many flaws (and that's the beauty of mankind, as seen through a writer's eyes). Imelda at least had over 4000 pair of shoes.
What trait most annoys you about other people? Cowardliness, envy, whining
What do you want to do for a living? Something creative, with no timetables. Writing among other things.
Would you ever use an Unforgivable Curse for any reason? Of course. I believe that everyone can be murderer, if they have to (actually, if they're allowed to), and the Cruciatus… could be fun, in a milder version *coughs*
What house do you think DOESN'T fit you? (This question is optional for those who feel they just DO NOT fit in a house. Please explain WHY.) Hufflepuff. They're too mellow, I'm too mercurial. They're round like a badger, while I'm made of rough edges.
What do you think are your top five abilities or qualities? Just five? (sorry, I have an ego the size of Sears Tower) My self-confidence, my honesty, as brutal as it may be sometimes, my mind, the fact that I'm either your best friend or your worst enemy, the way I can charm and manipulate my way around rules.
Where did you find out about us? angershoes
Just thought I should tell you that english is not my first language, should there be too many mistakes. I'm portuguese.
