Harry Potter Moment #130

Harry Potter Moment of the Week 

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

Happy Thursday my friends!  With all the exciting news of Wizarding Schools around the world, and an 8th Harry Potter book, I'm even more excited than usual to talk Potter with you all...

Favorite Charm Spell

Charms are among my favorite spells in the Wizarding World.  They're so versatile and infinitely practical! Favorites of mine include: Aresto Momentum, Ascendio, Bombarda, Expelliarmus, Confundus, Engorgio, Homonculous, Wingardium Leviosa, Oculus Reparo, Riddikulus, Summoning Charm, Lumos/Nox...and the list goes on. Charms to beautify, change colours, conceal, reveal, etc.   Charms class is one of the classes I've always been the most interested in and the one I think I might be the best at!  Obviously, narrowing down a single favorite was trying, so I ended up with two:


Undetectable Extension Charm

Hermione's beaded handbag. Need I say more? That bag had EVERYTHING in it: a giant portrait, books, clothes, potions, Harry's Cloak, money...everything they needed to hunt for Horcruxes.  A handbag like that would make my life.



Patronus Charm

Dementors are THE worst, so naturally the Charm to repel them earned a special place in my heart.  I love how everyone's Patronus is unique and I've always thought that Harry's journey to learning such a difficult spell before his time was incredibly special.




More on Charms:

A charm is a spell that adds certain properties to an object or creature. Charms are distinguished from transfigurations in that a charm adds or changes properties of an object; it focuses on altering what the object does as opposed to what the object is. For example, the Colour Change Charm causes something to flash different colours; the Levitation Charm causes an object to levitate; the Cheering Charm improves upon a creature's mood. -Source

  2. LOL You have a ton of favorite charms ;) I agree that Hermione's bag was one of the best things EVER! They wouldn't have made it through Deathly Hallows without it. And since I carry so much to work with me every day, it would absolutely come in handy. You'd have to have Accio too though or you'd never find a thing. I agree that the Patronus is so beautiful and I love that she made them unique to the caster.

    1. LOL! They're my favorite Jaclyn, couldn't you tell hehe! That bag was THE BEST thing. I'd want one too but I agree: you'd definitely need Accio otherwise you'd be pawing through it for days. And the Patronus Charm = ♥

  4. Oh man, yes, if I had to choose one charm, I would be tempted by Patronus, but would probably settle on Undetectable Extension, you should see my purse as it is!!!

    1. The Patronus is just so special...and I mean just thinking about Dementors makes me cringe >.< And the Undetectable Extension Charm just seems so practical, in real life or in the Wizarding World!

  5. I was ready to go with the Undetectable Extension Charm because my purse ABSOLUTELY needs it, LOL, but then I thought about how much lazier I could be thanks to Accio, and so the Summoning Charm won out! XD

    1. I was actually expecting you to go that way too but when I got to your post I was like: ACCIO! I totally get it :D

  6. Yes yes, I think you've picked my absolute top favourites here as well! I adore the Patronus charm especially because I love how it is unique to the caster and how you can also use them to communicate like the Order does. Side note: Pottermore has been promising for YEARS now to bring us a Patronus test, but this never happened, harrumph!

    1. That's the best bit about the Patronus Charm: how unique it is - well, that and the fact that it fends of Dementors *shudder* And communicating through them is just plain awesome! Gah! I KNOW! I want to know what my Patronus is!! D:
