So far everyone I have spoken to about how Pottermore will give us an official sorting quiz has had the same response. At first they are like “That is so awesome!!!” and then a couple minutes later they say “Oh crap, I hope I don’t get put in Hufflepuff!”
I find that funny haha.
There is nothing wrong with the characteristics of Hufflepuff, they are desirable, but they are kind of just there.
by reading Order of the Phoenix. My younger brother is reading the series for the first time (he started with the half blood prince because he has seen some of the movies) and he is so into it he wants to finish the book tonight. I’m so proud. I’ve converted my brother into a Potterhead! :)
I have two. Hermione and Luna. Hermione because she is so smart, but she loves her friends more. I also like how whenever Ron and Harry fight, she never takes a side and understands where both of them are coming from.
I like Luna because in the fifth book, she seems to be the only person (besides Sirius) that makes Harry feel better and is able to relate to. Luna stays true to herself and is such a good friend. I love the way her room is described to be decorated in Deathly Hallows as well.
I think I would want to be in Ravenclaw, or Gryffindor. Being in Gryffindor is just so cliche. Along with Slytherin. The pretty girls seem to be in Ravenclaw, and Rowena Ravenclaw herself was described as being very pretty. The only bad part about being in Ravenclaw would be having to answer a question to get into the common room. I would be happy to be put in any house though, I mean it’s Hogwarts!
Sirius Black, hands down. He was a father-figure to Harry. He was misunderstood most of his life, and his family disowned him, but he still fought for what he believed was right. Before the third movie came out I always saw Johnny Depp playing him. Gary Oldman does well though.
I was very upset when he was killed in book 5, anyone but him!!
Feeling down because Harry Potter "ends" next month? I have a remedy...
I have recently started using tumblr and reading all the Harry Potter posts. These posts go from being hilarious (yer a blizzard, harry) to really depressing (how sad everyone is about the last movie coming out)
Well I watched the latest trailer twice, and the second time I watched it, I got very sad. Ten years of loving the hp series hit me. I then put on some “Glee” music and took a shower, and before I knew it, I felt better! It was like my very own patronus charm!
Also, remember the Harry Potter era will never truly be gone as long as we remember it. Doesn’t Dumbledore say something along those lines in “Chamber of Secrets?” ;)
Ginny Weasley! I have never liked this girl, and I thought Harry could have done better. I guess I dislike her so much because one moment she is off “snogging” different boys in public, and then the next minute her and Harry are together. I feel Harry should go for a girl that is a little classier. I have always felt he just saw her red hair and thought of his mom. It just fits together too nicely that Ron and Hermione are married (too cute) and Harry and Ginny are married, making them all related. Bleh. I always wanted Harry and Luna to be together because she understood the sides of him that most other people didn’t. But oh well. I’m done ranting for now.
Day 3: Is there any of the films adaptations that have made you angry because they’ve ignored important parts of the book.
The main one that sticks out to me is the scene in Goblet of Fire when Dumbledore finds out Harry is in the Triwizard Tournament and all the teachers meet. Dumbledore runs up to Harry and grabs the neck of his shirt and starts demanding to know if Harry entered himself in the cup. This is so unlike Dumbledore! Dumbledore is supposed to be calm and wise, not demanding and aggressive.
There is also the point that Harry is supposed to have green eyes and in the movies he has blue eyes. It is kind of a big deal, considering it is pointed out multiple times throughout the series. But Daniel Radcliffe plays Harry very well, so I can’t complain too much.
I think I have two. Ever since it first came out, Prisoner of Azkaban was my favorite. I had the words to the movie memorized, I even had the MUSIC to the movie memorized. People didn’t want to watch the movie with me haha. ”Buckbeak’s Flight” is an all-time favorite, when i went to Hogwarts they started playing it in “Dragon Challenge” and I got really excited haha. But when Deathly Hallows part one came out, i saw it four times in theaters! I love both of them equally as my number one. I do get very emotional when i watch part one though, so I don’t want to know how I will be when part two comes out. I have already planned to bedazzle my own tissue box with lightening bolt stickers. Pathetic I know.
Day 1: Your fave book. Prisoner of Azkaban Day 2: Your fave movie. Prisoner of Azkaban and Deathly Hallows part 1. Day 3: Is there any of the films adaptations that have made you angry because they’ve ignored important parts of the book. Harry’s Eyes, S.P.E.W, Peeves, Quidditch World Cup… Day 4: Least fave female character and why. Ginny. She seems like an attention whore. And the jealous type. Day 5: Fave male character and why. Sirius Black, Harry’s Father Figure. So misunderstood but was a great character. Day 6: What house would you want to be in. Ravenclaw. I wouldn’t mind Gryffindor either but everyone wants to be in Gryffindor and Slytherin. The only thing that would suck about being in Ravenclaw is having to answer a question to get into the common room. Day 7: Fave female character and why. Hermione of course. She is such a relatable character. Day 8: What do you think would be your fave lesson. Transfiguration maybe. Or Defense Against the Dark Arts. Day 9: Least fave male character. Hmm. I think Peter Pettigrew. He is a creeper for being Ron and Percy’s rat. if he wouldn’t have escaped that night, Sirius would have been set free and Voldemort would not have his faithful servant back. And if it weren’t for him, Harry’s parents would still be alive and Sirius would have never gone to Azkaban. Day 10: Horcruxes or Hallows. I have not seen anyone answer this with horcruxes. Hallows of course. I would steer clear of the elder want (too much power) and the resurrection stone (too depressing) though. Day 11: What character would you say you are most like. Maybe a mixture between Ron and Hermione. I am like Hermione because I study hard and like to make good grades. But I am like Ron because my family isn’t loaded with money, and when my friends try to pay for me I really dislike it. Day 12: Fave ship. Ron and Hermione. Even when I was eleven I never understood how people could see Harry and Hermione together. Ron and Hermione have more chemistry. Day 13: Least fave movie. I don’t think I have one. But if I had to choose, I guess Order of the Phoenix. All of them are very good though. Day 14: Team Voldermort or Team harry. Is this a serious question? Team Harry of course. Day 15: Who would be your best friends at hogwarts. (three only) I feel like I would have been good friends with Fred and George because they are always having fun and joking around. But when I wanted to be serious, I think I would have turned to Hermione. Day 16: Fave professor Professor Lupin. Day 17: Are you excited about The Deathly Hallows movie or scared it won’t do the book justice. I’m excited! Deathly Hallows part one was so great! I think this one will be just as great. Day 18: Least fave book. All of them are so great. But if I have to pick one, I guess the Chamber of Secrets. Day 19: Do you prefer the books or films. Seriously? The books of course. Day 20: If you had to meet one member of the cast, who would it be. Emma Watson or Tom Felton. Emma seems fun and witty, Tom Felton seems funny and down to earth. I almost met Tom at a fishing derby in upstate New York. He was playing basketball with his security guards. they walked a few feet in front of me, and there I was holding my Order of the Phoenix book, too scared to walk up to him and ask for an autograph. Oh, the regret. Day 21: Out of all the characters that died, if you could bring one back, who would it be. Sirius Black. Or Fred. I am actually leaning more towards Fred. He was so young, and I am sure George was never the same after that. Day 22: Harry Potter or Twilight This can’t be a serious question, the two are not comparable. If you want to compare Twilight to a book, make it those cheesy romance novels with Fabio on the cover. Day 23: Any part of the books/movies that makes you cry. Oh yes. In the books, I cried when Sirius died, when I thought Harry was dead, when Snape died, and when Fred died. In the movies, I cried when Dobby died. Only the first time I saw it though. After that I found it funny (I’m heartless I know haha) Day 24: Any particular scene you wished would have been put in the movie but it wasn’t. The scene in Goblet of Fire when the Weasleys come to the Dursleys through their fireplace to pick up Harry. That part of the book was so funny. Day 25: Nineteen years later. Are you happy how it turned out, or do you wish something was different, ie Neville married Luna. I wish Harry would have married someone besides Ginny. I wish it would have gone a little more into detail about everyone’s life that survived. Like George’s. Day 26: If you could be able to work one spell without a wand what would it be. Hmm. The lazy part of me says “Accio” that would be nice. Especially if I forgot something. Above all, I would love to be able to apparate. Day 27: Would you rather own The Invisibility Cloak, The Resurrection Stone or The Elder Wand. Invisibility Cloak! That would be so awesome! You could go anywhere you wanted! Or sneak into concerts without having to pay! Day 28: Do you listen to Wizard Wrock, what do you think about it. I haven’t ever listened to it, so I couldn’t tell you. Day 29: Did you enjoy A Very Potter Musical. Yes I did! I think Darren Criss is “totally awesome”. I thought Lauren Lopez and Joe Walker were very entertaining and I loved their interpretations of Draco and Voldy. Day 30: What affect has Harry Potter made on your life and how much does it mean to you. It means so much to me. As most fans would say, it is my childhood. Those books are my security. Those books made me love reading, and allowed my imagination to go wild. I have always said I don’t want to get a tattoo, but if I did, I have a strong feeling it would be a Harry Potter one.
My favorite book in the Harry Potter series is definitely “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”. I will never forget the first time I read it. I was eleven and the things that book made me imagine captured me in a way no other book has been able to. My favorite character is Sirius Black, when he died in the fifth book, I was devastated. This book introduces the “Marauder Era” of when Harry’s dad and his friends were at Hogwarts. I absolutely love thinking of stories about when the four of them went to school. I wish Rowling would write books about that. I also love when Harry and Hermione go back in time and fix everything. Nobody dies in this book (unlike all the others that follow) and it is a happy ending. I remember I could not wait to read the chapter “Hermione’s Secret” to find out what Hermione was hiding. Hermione also turns into somewhat of a badass in this book as well. She slaps Malfoy, skips class, and uses her time turner for something besides going to class. I could read this book everyday for the rest of my life and not get tired of it:)
It kind of ruined the overall feelings I have towards Glee. It’s like when a kid goes to Disney World. They know the Disney characters aren’t real, but they don’t want to see Mickey Mouse without his head on either! Glee is magical to me. Watching them cast a new character ruins the ‘magic’ for me. It also is a haunting reminder that they are going to try to replace the original cast after they graduate. Which, in all honesty, will work, but it just won’t be the same. I just wish they would end it after they all graduate. Don’t drag it out and make it to be like Degrassi or something. Once Rachel Berry is not on Glee, I find no point in watching the show any further. I will still watch the glee project (cameron has kind of grown on me) but it is bittersweet to me, and more bitter than sweet. That is all.
As most people who know me are aware, I absolutely love glee. The cast’s talent is simply amazing, the show is hilarious, and the guys are hot!
However, I am kind of ashamed at how some of my fellow Gleeks have been acting lately. Especially towards my personal favorite guy, Darren Criss. First, someone pulls him off the stage at a show, which could have really hurt him. It probably scared the crap out of him too! I feel bad for him. Second, someone starts this story about how she met him backstage and he was hitting on her (I’ve heard a bunch of various details so I will leave it at that) I would like to say that is exactly why Darren, or anyone else from Glee, WOULDNT hit on a fan, they know the fan would just tell everyone and hurt their rep! Imagine how Darren must feel when he hears this kind of stuff. Probably a little betrayed by his own fans. Lastly, there is the picture (which I still have not seen, but would like to since it’s already out anyways!) I hear it is just a picture of him in his underwear? So why are we making such a big deal out of it? Yes, it’s hot. But that is all there is to it.
I have one last point. The bad behavior of some Glee fans could possibly end in consequences for the rest of us. What if the Glee cast decides not to touch hands with the crowd because they don’t want to risk being pulled off the stage again? What if you can no longer meet the Glee cast backstage because of people starting rumors about what is going on back there? And what if the worst happens, and Darren Criss stops taking pictures of himself in underwear?! Okay, that is a joke. But still! We need to remember that every celebrity is a HUMAN BEING and they have the right to be respected just like everyone else. They are flattered by their fans, but going overboard is just going to freak them out and ruin things for the rest of us!
