Harry Potter Fictional Bucket List

Harry Potter Fictional Bucket List

I always see fictional bucket lists on Pinterest or on other blogs and it got me thinking: most of my fictional bucket list items would (obviously) revolve around the Wizarding World. I could never just pick one item from this series so why not have a Harry Potter themed Fictional Bucket List? So that's exactly what I have for you all today!

Harry Potter Fictional Bucket List
(in no particular order)

Go on a quest with Harry

Hang out at the Library with Hermione

Take ALL the classes given at Hogwarts

Let my wand chose me at Ollivanders

Discover the secret passages within Hogwarts

Visit Hogsmeade

Spend the Summer at Diagon Alley

Spend the Holidays at The Burrow

Play Quidditch with Ginny

Get sent to Dumbledore's Office

Impress McGonagall

Get sorted in my TRUE House

Hang out with Luna

Win over Professor Snape

Get Lupin reinstated as a Professor and take his class all.the.time.

Take Herbology with Neville

Visit the House Elves in the Kitchen

Adventure in the Forbidden Forest

Have tea with Hagrid - no rock cakes please!

Take a ride on that flying motorcycle with Sirius

So...what have I missed?
What items are on your Harry Potter Bucket List?


P.S. Edit: Based on the awesome feedback everyone gave, I had *clearly* missed some important items, so I've added them below.

Take a ride on The Knight Bus (Thanks Christina)

Pull a prank with Fred and George (Thanks Christina)

Join up with Dumbledore's Army (Thanks Christina and Alex)

Find and explore the Room of Requirement (Thanks Alex)

Send and receive Owl Post (Thanks Lee)

Try Felix Felicis just once (Thanks Lee)

And finally: relive something in The Pensieve.

  2. I love fictional bucket lists! I'd add "Eat a Christmas dinner at Hogwarts" and also "Fly a dragon, a hippogriff, and a broomstick". I'd definitely join you for a shopping spree in the Diagonal Alley, I could spend a fortune there! And I would be super glad to spend a YEAR browsing through the Hogwarts library. Seriously, whenever Harry and Ron complained about homework, I was a bit bummed - I would have been the nerdiest student in the history of Hogwarts if I ever got the letter! :)

    1. I do too Kaja! Oooh Christmas dinner at Hogwarts is excellent! I now wish I'd added fly a dragon and hippogriff - I do think playing Quidditch with Ginny falls under the flying on a broom category though :) I agree^^ EVERY TIME Harry or Ron complained about studying I felt like yelling: ARE YOU CRAZY?! This is MAGICAL homework!

  5. Yes! That sounds amazing. My favs would be hanging out with Hermione in the Library and spending the holiday at the Burrow. I would also want to ride a Hippogriff, go to a quidditch game and listen to Lee Jordan commentate, attend DA meetings, and blow something up with Seamus.lol

    1. Thanks :D Hanging out with Hermione at the Library would be THE DREAM for any of us bookish peeps I think! And basically I want to live at The Burrow FOR EVER! Riding a Hippogriff would be awesome and OMG Lee Jordan commentating would be priceless XD I wish I'd added 'attend a DA meeting' and LOL blowing something up with Seamus could easily be arranged!

    1. Thanks Sarah! THE KNIGHT BUS! How could I forget that?! YES. Flying around Hogwarts would be perfect but I'm going to tie that into playing Quidditch with Ginny LOL! Oh and pulling a prank with the Weasleys? BEST. I might just add that to my list, I hope you don't mind :)

  7. This is such an awesome post, Micheline! ♥ Where do I start first with this list? Ummm...maybe taking that motorcycle ride with Sirius? XD I've always wanted to send and receive owl post (like, seriously, WHERE ARE OUR HOGWARTS LETTERS???) and maybe try Felix Felicis just once. :D

    1. Awww thank you my friend! I knew you'd enjoy the Sirius item, that's why I saved it for last XD SEND AND RECEIVE OWL POST! YES!! I think I might add that and Felix Felicis to the list, post-script if you don't mind? ♥

  8. I LOVE all of these. I would have to read The Quibbler to see what all the fuss is about and probably get a good laugh or two out of it. I'd also want to see a moving picture made. I'd have to talk to Sir Cadogan. I'd also definitely want to ride a thestral or hippogriff. I'd want to learn what my patronus is. Man, there is so much! Can we just have each of the character's experiences for a day?

    1. Thanks girl!! Awww The Quibbler would be good fun for sure :D Moving pictures sound brilliant too^^ I actually *just* added ride a Thestral...I've always had a soft spot for them ♥ THE PATRONUS! YES. I need to know mine too, though I have a good idea what it would be, I want to know for sure XD YES PLEASE^^

  9. This is a grand list! Holy moly! I want to do all of these things too. That would be the most magical (pun intended) time.
    It would be awesome to be apart of the DA (obviously, it wouldn't be necessary if Lupin were back as the DADA professor, but it would still be fun!) And visiting the Room of Requirement would be incredible too. I'd love to go digging through all the lost/hidden things.

    1. LOL nice one Alex^^

      I might just add the DA - I was thinking like you that we wouldn't 'need' it ideally but man it would still be fun :D And the Room of Requirement! How could I forget that?! My dream would be to find that room and hang out in it ALL.THE.TIME. I'm going to add both of those^^

  10. I wish I could do all of these! You sure came up with a great HP bucket list ^^ I think attending the classes, visiting Hogsmeade, especially at Christmas time, riding on the Hogwarts Express, celebrating Christmas at Hogwarts and visiting the kitchen and filling my pockets with all kinds of delicious treats would be on top of my list. Oh, and visiting the library! ^^

    1. Thank you Soudha! Awww Riding on the Hogwarts Express! I may have to add that one to my list as well :) Visiting the library was a must - I couldn't resist bringing Hermione along...as a fellow book-nerd :D

  11. Argh, this is SO COOL! I'd be especially excited about getting my wand and getting sorted, finding the Room of Requirement, visiting the kitchens and the house-elves, pulling a prank with Fred & George and visiting Hogsmeade - Honeydukes! The Three Broomsticks!

    Ahhh this is amazing, I'm definitely going to have to make one of my own now <3

    1. Thanks girl!! YES^^ the wand and getting sorted are top priorities. The RoR would be such a thrill to find...then you'd get to explore through tons of magical items other students (and teachers) have hidden over the years :D Pranking with Fred and George would be SO MUCH FUN and YES TO HOGSMEADE!! ♥ Oooh yes please make you own bucket list, I want to see it!!

  12. I love this! Is it weird that the first thing that came to my mind was try Felix Felicis? I'm glad it's on your list now too. Also, I'd like to eat every flavor of jelly bean. And read all of Hogwarts A History.

  13. Oooh, I love everything about this! I seriously lost it with that Snape GIF though. ^_^
    I would have to add drink butterbeer at the Three Broomsticks with the crew and visit Weasleys Wizard Wheezes.
