Harry Potter Moment #208

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 
Harry Potter Moment of the Week was created by Leah @ Uncorked Thoughts  and is hosted here @ Lunar Rainbows Reviews. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote or memory  from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself!  How to join up &  upcoming topics here.

Happy Potter-Thursday all!! I just realized I never posted last week, so I'm going to  go ahead and post last week's topic today and hopefully catch up with this week's topic in a few:

Which character confused you the most through the series?


Is it a cop-out if I go with Dumbledore? I mean, I'm pretty sure he was supposed to confuse us - he sure as shit confused Harry on a regular basis!  It's not like I ever wondered if he was bad or anything (MAN, THAT would have been a twist!) but his motives always held more than what we were led to believe. Was he protecting Harry? Was he training him up to face Voldemort? Which did he care more about, the protecting or the training? He certainly always had riddles and guessing games for Harry to play. And whenever he did reveal information, he always held the most important stuff back.  To me it was always clear that he knew more than he was letting on and the constant guessing about whatever secret he was holding on to kept me confused through most of the books.  


I still love the man though and no one will convince me otherwise.  If Harry was 'Dumbledore's man through and through' well that's good enough for me.  Sure I might have wanted some things to go down differently from what they did but I know Dumbledore cared for Harry and tried to do what was best - at the same time. He walked a tight line but he did it better than any of us would have.

So tell me: what character confused you the most in the series?

Happy Thursday!  Can you believe that it's the last Thursday of August?  That Harry Potter's birthday was already 1 full month ago?  Can someone fetch me a Time-Turner? Oh well, to help us feel better today we have one of our most popular topics...featuring a very popular Gryffindor :

Rename the books from  Neville's point of view


Neville Longbottom and the House Cup Victory

Fandom Mashup #123

Fandom Mashups
Fandom Mashups is an original feature here at Lunar Rainbows Reviews.  Every week, I propose a unique fictional scenario and then we build our own personal dream team of five fictional characters from five different fandoms to complete the task!  Anyone is welcome to join up - all I ask is that you link back to me somewhere in your post :)


Hey everyone!  I wish you all a good start to the last week in August! Whaaa?!  Where did the time go!  Well we might as well finish of August with a bang as as Slyther In to September...get it?! #lamejokeislame

"Slytherin will help you on your way to greatness" - Choose 5 characters from different fandoms that you think would do well in Slytherin. 

Celaena Sardothien

Celaena at the start of her story in ToG strikes me very much as a Slytherin.  She's cunning af and she's ambitious!  She also takes care of her loved ones as best she can which makes her an ideal candidate for the House.


Dean Winchester

Now it can be said that both Winchester brothers are brave and therefore Gryffindors but I've always pegged Dean as a Slytherin.  He's a crafty bastard and he would do anything, anything to protect his family -especially Sam.


Mycroft Holmes

Mycroft could easily be a Ravenclaw but I don't see him fitting in there as well as his younger brother Sherlock.  And speaking of his brother, Mycroft would move heaven and earth for Sherlock so he would fit in nicely in Slytherin. He's also as cunning as they come and definitely ambitious - consider his job!


The Master

Again, I could see the Master in Ravenclaw of course but he's a crafty Timelord (aren't they all?!) It's more than that though: he's scheming and devious and sly. And the ambition he has to show to go after the Doctor time and time again? To me that makes him a perfect fit for the Slytherin House.

Adam Parrish

Adam Parrish (who by the way looks nothing like this in my head^^) was sorted by author Maggie Stiefvater herself into Slytherin House.  He's certainly ambitious enough to fit the bill.  Also? As PYNCH he and Ronan make up a Slytherin/Gryffindor romance and that's just brilliant!

What characters from other fandoms would YOU sort into Slytherin?


PS: This is the last topic listed for my Fandom Mashup feature and with work, buying a house, moving, buying a car...etc. I haven't been blog-planning properly so I'm going to put the feature on hold for a bit. Honestly, I'm still in a reading slump but I'm hoping Fall will help me start reading again and get this blog back to what it used to be. Thank you for understanding ♥

Hi everyone and happy Potter Thursday!  I hope you're all well and ready to dive right into the Wizarding World with me?  Ok! Let's go  :

Would you have joined the Slug Club?


Hmmm, I guess that should read: Would you have been asked to join the Slug Club?  But anyway. I think the only way I would have been asked to join is if I had been the same geek at Hogwarts that I am in real life. And the answer to that is that I would be even more of a geek. Presumably, I'd be Muggle Born and being told I'm magic would have made me want to DEVOUR all the magical knowledge just like Hermione. So yeah, maybe I would have been clever enough at Hogwarts to warrant an invite from the old Slug himself!


As to if I would have joined...well Harry Potter joined, so I'm in!  Call me Colin Creevy because I would be following The Boy Who Lived like a shadow.  I picture the Slug Club as just another chance to bask in his glory LOL!

Do you think you would have been worthy of a Slug Club invitation?

Hi everyone and happy Monday -wait - is that an oxymoron for most of you? I'm off Mondays because I work Saturdays but anyway: I hope this Monday will be pain free for you all!  Anyone watching the Eclipse where you're at?  It's visible here but I don't have any viewing glasses...might see if I can craft some up lol.  Anyways, speaking of Intergalactic things:

Last week's Intergalactic Villains have finally reached us and the Earth needs DEFENDING. Which heroes are leading the pack to save Humanity?

The Doctor

These villains are coming FROM space to attack Earth...so naturally My Doctor makes the top of this list!  I feel safer just looking at that face. ♥.♥

Thor

THOR!  Look at him, all ready to go with a fierce sneer and his hammer aloft!  Those villains don't stand a chance!


Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is no...stranger to dealing with other-worldly forces threatening Earth. I have complete faith in him to put our collection of bad guys in their place.


Wonder Woman

Two Marvel Heros from this DC-fan. I gotta represent! Cue Wonder Woman.  She's better suited for this particular task than my perennial favorite Batman and we all know she's up to the task.


Spock

Last but not least: Spock. His cool intellect should mesh perfectly with The Doctor and both of them are just as brave as the rest of the team here...we got this!

Which heroes would you team up to fight our Intergalactic Villains?

Happy...Saturday all! How is everyone's week going so far?  I've had a busy week in real life and work was exceptionally busy so I'm ready to step back into the Wizarding World (albeit a few days late), how about you?  I've got Founder Fever recently it seems:

Favorite Hogwarts Founder. Or whichever one fascinates you the most.



As I mentioned in last week's post, I'm fascinated by the Founders of Hogwarts. All of them.  I feel like history maybe exaggerated some of their character traits and I'd like to see the humans behind the Houses.  Or you know, maybe history didn't over-emphasize anything...either way, I'd love to find out all about each one of the Founders.  We have certainly learned more about Godric Gryffindor than any of the others. I'd follow that closely by Salazar Slytherin so if pressed, I'd say I want to learn more about the women Founders of Hogwarts because they have more mystery about them.  I think Rowena Ravenclaw seems brilliant of course but as a GryffinPuff, I think Helga Hufflepuff would be my top choice! I adore how inclusively she saw the Wizarding World, how she wanted all the Magical children to be welcome so long as they worked hard and wanted to learn ♥

Which one of the Hogwarts Founders are you more interested in?

Hi and happy Monday everyone.  It seems like at least for the Summer, it's easier for me to post my FM posts on Monday so we'll try it this way for a bit and see how it goes:

An evil Galactic Empire is seeking to rule all the Galaxies (sound familiar?) and has lined up our Galaxy - and Earth - as it's next target. Which villains are running this diabolical scheme?

Chancellor Palpatine

Obviously right? This topic just reeks of Chancellor Palpatine!  Odds are he's the mastermind behind this entire scheme!


The Master

Speaking of Mastermind...The Master would be all over this like a bad joke. Or a good joke cause you have to admit The Master is pretty funny XD


Moriarty

Moriarty would fit right in here too, he's all about schemes and plots so it'd be nothing for him to take his ideals on a Galactic level!

Lucifer

Lucifer teaming up with The Master in Moriarty would be EPIC for sure!  I just wonder how they'd all get along?

Saruman

Saruman would be all up in this too!  Of course he'd pretend he wouldn't be but if the past in any indication, he's lying his white beard off.

Who do you think would take part in an evil, Galactic takeover?
