I saw this over on Beebooks and it just looked too awesome to pass up! You should go and give her blog some love because she posts awesome content. This tag is perfect for any Harry Potter fan, and I cant wait to answer the questions/get to read all your answers. So here goes…
Has to be The Prisoner of Azkaban. I love that theres no Voldemort, and we get introduced to two of my favourite characters Sirius and Professor Lupin. This was also the first book where the atmosphere turned darker, marking the loss of innocence that was to follow.
Least favourite book.
I’m not really sure I could pick one. I mean I love them all too much to have one I like the least.
Philosophers Stone, simply because the first two films are the closest book to film translation.
Least favourite movie.
Has to be Half-Blood Prince. They change wayyyy too much from the book, and they totally give away the ‘Snape isn’t a complete arsehole’ plot that shocked me so much in the last book!
“We could have been killed – or worse, expelled.” Can you tell I’m a Hermione fan 😂
Has to be Ginny, but kick-ass book Ginny, not what the movies made her out to be.
Favourite female character
I mean, this may seem pretty obvious but it has to be Hermione. I related to her so much when reading these books, and Harry and Ron would have been dead soooo many times over if it wasn’t for her.
Has to be Umbridge right? I mean, I wanted to kill her myself so badly when reading the book, and I feel she was one of the characters they got right when making the transition from book to film.
McGonogall, I mean shes just so sassy and I love the interactions between her and Harry. She has some epic scenes in the books – that interaction with Umbridge, and when Harry tortures the Death Eater for spitting at her!
Wash Snape’s hair, or spend a day listening to Lockhart rant about himself
I mean even with the impeding doom of Snape probably killing you for washing his hair, this would still be my choice. Otherwise I might end up killing Lockhart.
Duel an elated Bellatrix, or an angry Molly
Definitely Bellatrix! Angry Molly is super scary, I mean ‘not my daughter you bitch’ has to be one of the most iconic potter lines ever!
Travel to Hogwarts via the Hogwarts Express or Flying Car
Hogwarts express every time! I’m not risking my neck flying into the whomping willow.
Kiss Voldemort or give Umbridge a bubble bath
Ewww to both options, but I feel like a kiss would be over quicker??? *dont judge me*
Ride a Hippogriff or Firebolt.
Has to be a Firebolt. Ever since reading the books I’ve wanted to fly on a broomstick like a proper witch.
Is there a character you felt differently about in the movies over the books.
I mentioned this before, but they completely ruined Ginny’s character in the movies. Shes so strong and sassy in the book’s and they just made her into this whimpering girl whose only purpose is to be in love with Harry.
Is there a movie you preferred over its book
Ha! No, I mean I like the films, but I LOVE the books and will choose them over the movies anyday.
Richard Harris or Michael Gambon as Dumbledore
I guess I like both. I feel that Richard Harris played it a bit too wistfully, whereas Gambon was a bit rough and ready. I feel the perfect Dumbledore would be a mix of the two.
Your top thing (person or scene) which wasn’t included in the movie that annoyed you the most
PEEVES! I missed his character so much in the films, and that scene where the Weasley twins leave and he salutes them… god I would have loved to see that in the films.
If you could re-make any of the Potter movies which would it be?
Half-Blood Prince everyday! I would completely cut the Burning of the Burrow, and include the true fight scene that we deserved to see.
Which house was your first gut feeling you’d be a part of?
Ravenclaw. I’ve always been quite bookish and studious and thought for sure this would be my house.
Which house were you actually sorted into on Pottermore?
Hufflepuff and proud!
Which class would be your favourite?
Oooh Transfiguration maybe? I think that would be super cool to learn.
Which spell do you think would be the most useful to learn?
I am so unbelievably bad for loosing things so Accio would come in super handy.
Which character do you think you would instantly become friends with?
Tonks! I mean shes one of my faves anyway, but we are definitely both quirky and have similar senses of humour.
If you could win one of the three Hallows, which would it be?
Definitely the Invisibility Cloak. How handy would that be?
Is there any aspect of the book’s you’d want to change?
I mean, bring everyone I love back from the dead… So many characters died!
Has to be Lupin! I love that he would get away with the most pranks because people wouldn’t believe he would do them.
If you could bring one character back to life, which would it be?
Only one! I guess Sirius maybe? I felt so bad for Harry when he finally had someone willing to take care of him, for them to die so quickly.
Hallows or Horcruxes.
I mean I like my soul being in one piece so I would have to go with Hallows.
Well! That was epic, incredibly long, and super fun to do. Please feel free to do this if you fancy it, but make sure to tag me so I can read all your answers.
