The Hogwarts Tag

Jess @ Curiouser and Curiouser did this tag a while back and I had started it up as a draft but never got around to put in my answers, much less publish it.  Since it's Harry Potter Month though, it seems like a perfect time to post this now :)  Here goes:

Am I pure-blood, half-blood or muggle born?

I've previously said that I thought I'd be a half-blood but through various readings/HP personality quizzes, I'd changed my mind: I think I'd be a Muggle-Born.

Which wand chose me?

My wand is a Hawthorn with Phoenix feather core, 10 and 3/4 inches, surprisingly swishy and flexible! If we're going by how JKR did things according to birth months for a specific wood, then I'd have a Ash wand (which I sort of prefer) but I'm keeping my Phoenix core ;)

Did I take an owl, a cat, a rat or a toad?

Are you kidding me? I'd bring a cat obviously. Specifically, my black cat called Nox ♥  I'd still want my own owl though so I'm hoping to bend the rules because I'm such a good student (heh) I fancy a black owl like Sirius' one that bit Harry in the GoF film LOL!

*Yes I commissioned a Harry Potter custom painting of my cats.
See the full version on my IG. Thank you Kayla!

Where did the sorting hat put me?

To make a long story short, I was initially sorted into Hufflepuff in 2012 but since then I've been consistently sorted into Gryffindor on Pottermore and all the personality/sorting quizzes I've done since.  Proud Gryffindor right here but if we're being specific, I'd say I'm an even more proud GryffinPuff.

What house did I want to be in?

When I got sorted I wanted to be in Ravenclaw and I was really upset that that wasn't where I ended up.  I've come to realize that I might be a bookish geek but I obviously value bravery and loyalty more than anything else (GryffinPuff)...and I'm 100% ok with that!

What lessons are my favourite and least favourite?

I think my favorite lessons would be Charms, followed by Transfiguration and Defence Against the Dark Arts. My least favorite would be Potions ONLY if Snape was teaching it O.O otherwise I'd love that too and my least favorite class would be History of Magic cause Professor Binns sounds BO-RING

The form my patronus takes:

A cat of course! Pottermore says specifically a Nebelung Cat but I'm fine with any kind of cat, especially a Panther ♥

What does a Boggart look like for me?

Probably being thrown out of Hogwarts or something akin to Hermione's version of failing all her classes >.<

Do I partake in any magical hobbies or school sports?

Is there a Hogwarts book club? I'd be all over that!  I wasn't especially sporty at school (read: not at all) but I've always fancied trying my hand at Quidditch - especially since we could repair injuries with magic.

Where would I find myself hanging in my free time?

The library!  The Gryffindor Common Room of course. Oh and probably quite a bit of time spent on the school grounds, whatever the season!

What would I most likely get detention for?

Sneaking about under my Invisibility Cloak after dark of course. What? I was only going to the Library!

What career do I want after leaving Hogwarts?

Wandmaker remains the Career I'm most drawn to within the Wizarding World. Something about it just seems endlessly fascinating.

If you want to have a go at this, then consider yourselves tagged!


  1. Ooh, this is a really fun tag! I loved reading through your answers. I'll join you in a Hogwarts book club! And I totally think you could get away with bringing in two pets (I mean, it can't be too hard to sneak an owl up in the owlery, right!?). And I definitely agree about being a wandmaker - it seems like such an interesting career.

  2. I'd probably have the same Boggart, LOL! A Hogwarts Book Club sounds heavenly; please sign me up! Ooh, wandmaking would be a fantastic career; I'd get so buried in wandlore, I'd never get around to actually making wands! XD

  3. I did this tag a few months ago. If I had an invisibility cloak, I’d sneak into the library’s restricted section. Telling me that a book is “restricted” makes me want to read it more.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  4. This is such a fun tag! I would want an owl and a cat too! Owls are just so useful but the kitties are adorbs!

  5. Ooh fun tag! I'd take a cat but I kinda want an owl too??? And oh my gosh the library there must be amazing?!? I would totally take an invisibility cloak!

  6. This is a great tag! I love your cat art, it's beautiful! I personally would want an owl to take with me and I'd absolutely try quidditch, though I don't think I'd be very good at it. lol If they don't have a book club at Hogwarts, I say we start one! There's got to be so many people who'd love it!

  7. I'm fascinated by wand making too. I wanted to write a fan fic about that once, but I let the project go.

    I have thought that I would try to sneak in both my cat and an owl so that I could write home, but I have changed my mind since looking at the Owl HP wiki. Since Hogwarts and Hogsmeade seem to have their own owls, I know I can keep in touch with friends and family without having to get my own owl. So, I only have to bring my cat.

  8. We share a wand core! We don't have much else that matches, but I'd love to join the Hogwarts book club too, and I'd like to think we could have a rare Slytherin/GryffinPuff friendship ;)


I LOVE comments & do my best to return every one a.s.a.p. ♥
