I first saw this tag over at My Bookish Dream and I thought that it looked really fun, especially considering that I am obsessed with everything magical and Harry Potter related! You can go over and read her post here.
1. Are you a Pure-Blood or Half-Blood?
According to the DoQuizzes quiz, I am a pure-blood. I don’t know whether to be happy about this or not but coming from a magical family sounds like an interesting childhood!
2. Which wand chose me?
According to Pottermore, it was an alder wood wand with a unicorn hair core, 10 inches long and quite bendy.
3. Did you take a cat, owl or toad with you?
This is a difficult question because I would love the company of a cat but I absolutely love writing and sending letters which would be an easier task with an owl. Also, leaving the owl to be looked after in the Owlery would be less responsibility than having to look after a cat yourself the whole time at school, plus Hedwig totally won me over and made me an owl fan. So, I think I would have taken an owl along with me.
4. Where did the Sorting Hat put you?
I am in Slytherin; the house of the most shrewd, cunning, resourceful and ambitious students!
5. What House did you want to be placed in?
I always had a sort of affinity with Slytherin, however I could see the merits in being in any of the four houses, so I wasn’t too desperately attached to the idea of being in either.
6. What lessons are your favourite and least favourite?
My favourite is Defence Against the Dark Arts because it is the most practical of the classes and involves learning a lot about every area of magic. My least favourite is divination because honestly Professor Trelawney gives me the creeps a bit and those lessons would get me easily bored I think.
7. What is your patronus?
My patronus is a buzzard which is quite cool considering that it is an animal which can fly.
8. What does your boggart look like?
Me in my old age having never undergone my gender transition and still feeling the same level of anxiety and sadness which I feel on a daily basis now. This is the most scary thing I can think of to be honest, if I let myself down and never make the progress I want to in life, I can’t imagine living in the same level of emotional pain which burdens me on a daily basis currently.
9. Do you partake in any magical hobbies or school sports?
It would be quite cool to use magic to do cool craft projects, like Mrs Weasley does with her self-knitting needles!
10. Where would you spend your spare time?
In the Slytherin common room probably or chilling-out at The Three Broomsticks!
11. What would you most likely get detention for?
Probably for being late to lessons because my sense of direction isn’t brilliant so I could easily end-up getting lost on my way to class.
12. What career do you want after graduating Hogwarts?
I would be an author of fiction books for witches and wizards and would hope that my stories would be common knowledge amongst magical families!
