Harry Potter Tag

  So I saw this tag on Amy @ A Little Boat Sailing blog and since I'm the biggest fan ever ever ever, I thought it would be right if I did this tag! Hope you guys enjoy it and if you do do the tag, leave your links below - I would love to know other Potterhead's answers :D

1. What is your favourite book?

To be honest, I loved all 7 books (hahah). But if I had to pick, I would have to say the 6th one - Half-Blood Prince - because that book was full of new and interesting information that I thought made the plot more complex and more fascinating. Of course, knowing Snape's background and Voldemort's past was equally as thrilling.

2. What is your favourite film?

  I didn't think they did such a good job on the latest films - the acting was great, but the plot and effects...not so :/ It would have to be a tie between the 2nd (Chamber of Secrets) and the 4th (Goblet of Fire) because I thought the scenes were captured relatively well in those.

3. What is your least favourite book?

  This could be so cliched and all but...none. I know a few of my friends didn't like the 5th because it was so 'meaty' and boring to them but...I still love it. All books played an equal role in the plot.

4. What is your least favourite film?

The 6th one. It. Was. Horrible. Okay, maybe that was an exaggeration, but I was still so disappointed especially since it was one of my more favourite ones!

5. Which parts of the books/films made you cry?

  Although I do get quite emotional in movies, I didn't really cry in Harry Potter, simply because I knew what was going to happen, having read the books :P I don't really cry when reading, but the part when Fred Weasley died made me stop reading for a while...

6. If you could hook up with any character who would it be?

Hmmm...Sirius Black is such a good-looking badass. Probably him...

7. Who is your favourite character?

  You honestly can't ask me that question because I love them all so so so much. They're all special. Of course, there is the 'magical trio' and although I like all 3, I would have to go for Hermione as my favourite. Simply because she is incredibly hardworking, driven, determined (e.g in the 6th book when she refused to accept help from Harry's potion book AKA The Half Blood Prince and is determined to succeed the 'right' way), yet loyal and will protect those that she loves. Although she is smart and a stickler for rules, she isn't like Percy Weasley who disregards his family in search for ambition (yes, I am aware he reconciles with his family later on). Instead, she was willing to risk getting expelled, challenged Umbridge, puts herself in the most dangerous situations and has constantly been there for both Harry and Ron. 

  Apart from Hermione, I really like the Weasley twins because they like Hermione, are determined and driven - although in a slightly different way. An example being their own joke shop that most people around them were skeptical about, especially since they didn't do too well in their exams. Yet, they proved everyone wrong. Also, not only did they provide me with loads of laughs, but the bond between the twins is just incredible.

8. Who is your least favourite character?

  Professor Umbridge. Hands down. So annoying and I thought the actress that portrayed her in the movies did it really well because I did want to throttle her...

9. What is your least favourite line?

  I truly thought that all lines were carefully thought of, but somehow I am not too keen on the very last line, 'All is well.' because it just seems so empty to signify the end of an incredibly journey/series. Personal opinion though.

10. What would your Patronus be?

  A dolphin? I love the water and how intelligent, carefree and caring dolphins can be.

11. If you could have the invisibility cloak, resurrection stone or elder wand, which would you choose?

Invisibility Cloak. I just think that I would get more use out of it then I would with the other 2. 

12. What house would you be in?

  Well I took the Pottermore test and I am proud to say that I am a Gryffindor. Personally, I like to think Ravenclaw or Gryffindor. Don't think I evil enough for Slytherin :P

13. If you could meet any member of the cast who would it be?

Emma Watson, without a doubt. Please please please.

14. If you were on the Quidditch team, what position would you play?

Probably a Chaser because I think that could be quite fun...although I wouldn't mind trying to be a Seeker - since I'm quite small so I fly through all the tight spaces to catch the Snitch if needed.

15. Were you happy with the ending?

  With the books, yes I am. Although I really disliked Harry's children's names because there was no originality in it. I understand the whole tribute paying part, but it was basically the names of people he knew bunched together...and a little cheesy. I mean, did Ginny even get a say in any of that? Also, although I liked the ending, I am really sad it ended because I want more! I want to know all the little personal details of each character and their futures.

16. How much does Harry Potter mean to you?

  Too much. It's been a big part of my childhood, and I still do a little happy dance/squeal whenever I receive/see/watch something Harry Potter related. I once had a 'Harry Potter character naming' competition with my sister as well as a number of Skype duels...(massive Potterhead here). Since the books and movies ended, apart from re-reading/watching them over and over again...I've been fuelling my obsession with 'behind the scenes'  footage from the show, as well as cast interviews. Seriously, they are amazing and truly worth the watch - I never get bored. I am also currently obsessed with Harry Potter posters/prints - which I plan to print out in high quality paper and stick them on my uni room. Only problem, I have hundreds (I kid you not) so it will take some time to narrow it down :P
