Harry Potter MotW # 15

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted over at Uncorked Thoughts. The idea is to share a favorite moment, magical item, character, spell, quote, object from the books, films or J.K.Rowling herself! Upcoming topics & how to join here.

  Favorite potion

I'm seriously loving these topics, every week I get more and more pumped thinking about and picking favorites...and then seeing everyone else's answers!  Ok so, potions are really intriguing to consider - some of them would be dead useful in real like *ahem* Truth Serum anyone?!  And then there are some I would never consider using, like Love Potions for example...we've seen how awful the outcome can be O_O  I think we can all agree that we'd all like to try Polyjuice Potion at least once (call it morbid curiosity)  but out of all those choices and more, my favorite is :

Felix Felicis
Honestly, couldn't we all use some liquid luck sometimes?!  Just that little extra something to ensure a really spectacular day!  I especially adored how it was used in Half Blood Prince by Harry himself.  Here's a bit more information about Felix Felicis:

Felix Felicis, also called "Liquid Luck", is a magical potion that makes the drinker lucky for a period of time, during which everything they attempt will be successful.
It is meant to be used sparingly, however, as it causes giddiness, recklessness, and dangerous overconfidence if taken in excess. Felix is highly toxic in large quantities and is also a banned substance in all organized competitions, such as Quidditch, along with all other methods of cheating. It is very difficult to make, disastrous if made wrong, and requires six months to stew before it is ready to be consumed.- Source

  1. I could definitely use a batch of that, haha. I think I'd use it for my first flight, since I'm afraid of flying, but I want to travel all over the world to see cultures :p So having a bit extra luck might give me a better feeling.

  2. I was so close to picking this one but changed at the last minute. There's so many great potions mentioned in the books!
    I really liked Slughorn's classes, he taught them a lot :)

  3. You're right, I wouldn't want to take the love potion, but I AM really interested in what Amortentia would smell like to me. That's one of those things to think about like what your Patronus would be or what you would turn into if you could be an animagus.

    I'm with you on Felix though for sure. If I could take one potion, that would definitely be it! I agree that we could all use a bit of luck :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  4. Woooooo on picking the same one! :D
    I agree with what Jaclyn says too - I wonder what Amortentia would smell like to me too. I really don't know.

  5. I would definitely pick Felix Felicis too!! Man, can you imagine?? I understand why it wouldn't be good to use it every day, but to use it just once would be amazing! The other potions would be interesting to try out - like Polyjuice and Veritaserum - just to see what they're like, but none would be as beneficial as Felix!
