Harry Potter Anniversary Week – DAY 1!!

Harry Potter is turning 21, and we’re celebrating!!

Hiiii everyone!!! I’m finishing up this post in a hurry, it’s been a couple wild days for me AND THERE’S NO TIME FOR ANYTHING. But!!! On June 26th, it’ll be 21 years since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was published in the UK, and Margaret @WeirdZeal had the awesome idea of planning an anniversary week event!

So starting TODAY!! everyone who’s participating will be posting something Harry Potter related to celebrate the series for a week, and I’m inviting you to join us! There’ll be a different theme each day (schedule below), and you can check out the details for each of them in Margaret’s post (go see it, she’s great).

I won’t be able to post every day of the event, BUT, I’ll be doing a few (I hope), and tagging some people to do them too 🤗

DAY 1 – The Hogwarts Tag

AND WE’RE STARTING OFF with a tag about what our lives would be like at Hogwarts! Houses, wands, food, the whole thing. I’ve tinkered with the questions a little bit (maybe a lot?) to make it even more Hogwartsy… That’s a word. Soooo, you can check out the original here, and make sure to link back to me and Margaret if you try this version, or any of the other anniversary week posts! ALSO, there are quizzes for some of the questions at Pottermore, and several of the illustrations I used come from there.

Let the chaos magic begin!!

What house are you in?

I’m a Gryffindor! With a little Ravenclaw side, but Gryffindor all the way. (And a Thunderbird in Ilvermorny! Looks like “bold” and “adventurous” is my kind of thing).

What is your wand?

“Hazel wood with a unicorn hair core, 12″ and quite bendy flexibility”

Picture of wand

So my wand has a bit of a personality! Sensitive, very attached and faithful, capable of outstanding magic, and so devoted it will die if I die. Because it’s prone to melancholy. AND!! Because it’s made of hazel, it has “the unique ability to detect water underground, and will emit silvery, tear-shaped puffs of smoke if passing over concealed springs and wells.” Which sounds fun. Just…  don’t touch it if I’ve been upset, it may accidentally attack you.

What is your Patronus?

A fox! It’s cute. I like it.

What would your boggart be?

Well, I had no idea, so I looked for a silly quiz to take… And got a Dementor. Which actually seems accurate enough, so I’m going to leave it at that. “Like Harry, you fear fear itself. It doesn’t matter how the feelings of anxiety, uncertainty, and terror are triggered, you just despise the clammy sensation of being afraid and helpless.”

What position would you play in Quidditch?

Chaser, definitely.

Would you rather take Divination or Care of Magical Creatures as an elective?

Ok, so… Sybill Trelawney may have been right about quite a few things, but… nope. I’d always choose Care of Magical Creatures over Divination. It involves winged horses, hippogryphs and blast-ended screwts blowing up on your face while trying to kill you. These are all nice perks (*cough*). And let’s not forget, Hagrid might be teaching it.

What pet would you take to Hogwarts?

A snowy owl. My… 20  47  14  6 cats are fine at home.

Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?

The invisibility cloak, of course. It’s useful, it’s fun, and it doesn’t cause madness or violent, untimely deaths.

Would you enter your name for the Triwizard Tournament?

It’d be somewhat scary… But YES.

Would you rather drink Butterbeer or Pumpkin Juice?

I’m not too fond of pumpkin… No idea what the butter beers are actually like, but I’d rather try one of those. (edit: OK butterbeer can be made with ice cream, it double wins!!)

Favorite teacher at Hogwarts?

I’m torn between Hagrid and Lupin… But, even though they’re both amazing, Lupin IS better at the teaching part… So he gets this one.

Least favorite teacher at Hogwarts?

Ha… haha… ha…. I may despise Dolores Umbridge more than Voldemort.

Would you rather have the marauder’s map or a time-turner?

To be honest, I’d rather not use a time-turner. Things would get complicated. But the map?? YES. I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

What Hogwarts ghost would you like the most?

She’s tragic and rarely shows up, but I think like the Grey Lady best.

Would you rather get a pygmy puff or Weasleys’ Wildfire Whiz-bangs?

I’d like to watch the Weasleys’ fireworks, but not use them myself. They’re wild. So I’d get a pygmy puff instead.

The Hogwarts Express trolley is passing by, what do you get from it?

Chocolate frogs. but doesn’t this gif remind you of hansel and gretel’s witch

Nah… I’d convince a teacher to give me somewhat permanent permission 😏

  1. I may just do a huge combined post to do with Harry Potter for this if I’m honest, cause some of the stuff on the schedule looks like fun and others not so much as I’m not a potterhead xD Thanks for the tag though! And I’ll happily help you kill Umbridge like seriously the pink was the clue here xD

    I’m a proud Slytherclaw but I’m primarily Slytherin 😉

  2. I love Harry Potter! I definitely don’t have time to do the whole event, but I’ll totally try to do this tag! Thanks for tagging me!
    My Hogwarts house is Hufflepuff. And yes, I would totally play Quidditch! I would suck at it, but I would play if I could!

    1. I love it!! 😆 And yes! There’s a quiz and information on every detail of it… the wood, the core, the length… They’re almost like magic pets 😆 And I love Lupin so much! Yw!

  3. Ugh I’m sorry it took so long to reply to this! Anyway, I loved your answers (obviously) and could see myself in a lot of them so we’re pretty much HP twinsies 😀 It’s so cool that we’re both Gryffindor ❤ I'm not sure if I'd be better having a hybrid house or something (probably) but I like our house.
    Thank you sooooo much for tagging me once again and I'm sorry I missed the schedule T_T I did have fun writing the post though, so that's something 🙂 I might do the other challenges some other time.

    1. I’M SO GLAD YOU DID IT!! Loved to read yours too, and yay to us being HP twins!! 😆 And yesss, I know what you mean… I’ve been sorted into Ravenclaw before, but now it’s Gryffindor mostly, and I love it! Bet we could win the Quidditch House Cup 😉
