I found this tag deep in the booktuber community. Basically this Sunday morning I fell into a rabbit hole of Youtube videos. I came across this tag which was originally created by Just Keep Reading and I immediately wanted to answer all of the questions, and once again, I have not launched my youtube channel yet, but I wanted to post the answers here on my blog. I am going to tag some bloggers at the end of the questions, cuz I really love to see the different opinions within the Harry Potter fandom.
***PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE BOOKS OR WATCHED THE MOVIES THIS WILL CONTAIN ALL KINDS OF SPOILERS(probably) DO NOT CONTINUE READING IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE STORIES***
And now the Questions:
1 Favorite book?
Wow this is hard, but I won’t repeat that because coming up with favorites in this series or even least favorites is a bit rough. My Favorite is Prisoner of Azkaban because this is where we are introduced to The Marauders and I love them. Also though as I grow older I really love The Deathly Hallows, because it tied up the story.
2 Least favorite book?
If I have to go with one that wasn’t as entertaining as the rest, I would say The Chamber of Secrets, but I still love that one so that’s really just me trying to answer every question.
3 Favorite movie?
I do love The Prisoner of Azkaban as well because we meet Sirius and Lupin but Actually I love the very first movie, The Philosopher’s Stone, because it brought Hogwarts to life so perfectly.
4 Least favorite movie?
The Goblet of Fire and actually The Order of the Phoenix and mind you I still watch them all the time, but it’s the fact that they missed SO MUCH from the books. Like the fact that Harry gave Fred and George his winnings to open their shop, In the Order they missed a chance to delve into Neville’s character and that pisses me off, I feel like he’s so underappreciated in the movies.
5 Favorite quote?
“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” This is quite fitting to some people I have met throughout my life.
6 Favorite Weasley?
Ginny!! In the books shes strong and she is extremely fierce with a great sense of humor which is why Harry begins to fall for her.
7 Favorite female character?
Hermione. Without her, this series would be much shorter cuz Harry would have probably died in his first year.
8 Favorite villain?
Favorite as in I want to hang out with them or just a really well written villain? Does Draco Count? I feel like he is a very complex character. I wouldn’t hug the guy, I still think he could have had a mind of his own instead of being a giant asshole like his father, but I do like how the character is written.
9 Favorite male character?
Neville, because I think he grows the most through out the entire series. But also Hagrid, he’s so protective of those kids, and I love his heart.
10 Favorite professor?
Professor Mcgonagall of course!!! She’s not only an amazing teacher, she takes shit from NOBODY!!
WOULD YOU RATHER
11 A, Wash Snape’s hair, or B, spend a day listening to Lockhart rant about himself.
Hand me the shampoo please. I can’t stand listening to people talk about themselves.
12 Duel A, an elated Bellatrix, or B, an angry Molly
Angry Molly Killed an Elated Bellatrix….so I am not messing with Molly, EVER. Bellatrix please.
13 Travel to Hogwarts via A. Hogwarts Express or B. flying car.
Hogwarts EXPRESS!! Come on!!
14 A, Kiss Voldemort. Or B, give Umbridge a bubble bath.
I will give Umbridge a bath (try to drown her) cuz Voldemort looks like he smells like a corpse.
15 A, ride a hippogriff, B, ride a firebolt
BOOK TO MOVIE ADAPTATION
16 Is there a character which you felt differently about in the movies vs books?
Ginny. I don’t like the way they waited until the 6th movie to really show who Ginny was. And even then movie Ginny doesn’t come off as strong as book Ginny.
17 Is there a movie you preferred instead of the book?
Absolutely not. While I enjoy the movies and love them dearly, none can compare to the books.
18 Richard Harris or Michael Gambon as Dumbledore?
I liked them both, so no controversial view here.
19 Your top thing (person or event) which wasn’t included in the movie that annoyed you most.
The scene where you discover what truly happened to Neville’s parents. In the book it is so much more complex, and so important and key to the story. I was very upset that it was cut from the movie.
20 If you could remake any of the Potter movies, which would it be?
I think both the 4th and 5th movies need some additions and changes.
21 Which house was your first gut feeling you’d be a part of?
I wasn’t really sure, but I had a secret desire to be a Gryffindor because most of my favorite characters are Gryffindors.
22 Which house were you actually sorted into on Pottemore (or another online sorting quiz)?
Ravenclaw so I will be friends with Luna, who is also an amazing character.
23 Which class would be your favourite?
I think Transfiguration or Defense Against the Dark Arts.
24 Which spell do you think would be most useful to learn?
The Summoning Charm because I lose shit all the time!! “Accio Glasses” “Accio Keys” yeaaaaa.
25 Which character do you think at Hogwarts you’d instantly become best friends with?
26 If you could own one of the three Hallows, which would it be?
I do own one…muhahahaha
27 Is there any aspect of the books you’d want to change? This can be a character, and event, anything.
I really hate that Sirius died. I understand the reasoning behind it. Also Lupin and Tonks…leaving another Orphan behind? WHY?!!!
28 Favorite marauder?
Lupin (Moony) I love you. Haha He’s that voice of reason, or he tries to be, and I felt that way many times in my life with my friends. “Ho, Don’t do it!”
29 If you could bring one character back to life, which would it be?
Lupin. I don’t want another Orphan child with his own set of issues growing up.
30 Hallows or horcruxes?
Hallows….I don’t even want to know the true details of making a Horcrux
So there are my answers!!! Here are the bloggers I am tagging. No pressure. You do not have to do this at all. I just thought it would be fun as we are nearing the release of the illustrated Philosopher’s Stone book.
