My Hogwarts Story Tag!

Thanks to Caroline from Just Another Bookish Blog for tagging me!

After finishing Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, I've had a strong urge to re-watch all the movies. I've only gotten through The Goblet of Fire, Deathly Hallows Part 1 and Deathly Hallow Part 2 though. Oh well. But at least this tag lets me get back into the Hogwarts feel :)

1. Am I a pureblood, half-blood, or muggle born?
Half-blood. Just to be safe. I don't want any pureblood fanatics or Voldemort 2.0 coming after me, either demanding I join them or dragging me away.

2. Which wand chose me?
*pulls up my Pottermore account* Here it is! Sycamore wood with a Phoenix feather core, 12 and three-quarters inches, with surprising swishy flexibility. Needless to say, I like my wand very much, thank you.

3. Did I take an owl, cat, rat or toad with me?
Owl. How else am I supposed to get letters and packages sent anywhere? Plus it gives me an excuse to wander Hogwarts to visit my owl. 

4. Where did the Sorting Hat put me?
Ravenclaw! But...I redid the Sorting Hat test recently, and it put me in Hufflepuff. So I may be going through a slight Hogwarts identity crisis right now. But I'm going to stick with Ravenclaw, because that's what I got into first, and that's what I'd rather be in...

5. What house did I want to be in?
Ravenclaw or Gryffindor.

6. What lessons are my favourite and least favourite?
Charms and Ancient Runes definitely are the most interesting! Transfiguration and Defence against the Dark Arts are neat too, though I feel like it would be kind of hard. Least favourite would have to be Divination or History of Magic. 

7. The form my patronus takes is...
I was going to say seahorse, but that would be a ridiculously tiny patronus. Hmm, I kind of like otters (no, I'm not copying Hermione!). Just because they're elegant and sleek, and can be both on land and in water. 

8. What does a boggart look like for me?
I'm not a fan of snakes. Nope. Not at all. Keep them away from me. Far, far away. 

9. Do I partake in any magical hobbies or school sports?
Is there a reading club? Else music club. Or Quidditch, though I feel like I wouldn't be good enough. But I'd still play recreationally, if it's allowed?

10. Where would I find myself hanging in my free time?
Probably the library! Else Rawenclaw common area. The dorms are in a tower, after all!

11. What would I most likely get detention for?
Er...not doing my readings. Because I'd rather be off reading other books instead of my textbooks...

12. What career do I want after leaving Hogwarts?
Something in the humanities! Maybe using magic to help clean up messes witches or wizards make in the muggle world? Or providing magical aid to witches or wizards in distress. I mean, I have magic, so why not use it for a good cause?

And that's it! Thanks for sticking around and reading to the end of the tag. I'm going to tag:

Tashya from The Literary Huntress
Genni from Ready, Set, Read!
Sinead from Less Reality, More Books

And anyone else who wants to do this, you're more than welcomed to!


  1. I really like your wand! Also I think everyone is going to choose an owl lol

    Carrie @The Butterfly Reader

    1. Haha, so very true. Then again, I know there are a lot of cat-lovers out in the world, so I feel like the majority will be owls and cats!

  2. Ahh thank you so much for tagging me Erika! I also really hate snakes, they would definitely be my boggarts. I'm a bit torn between owls and cats though haha!

    1. You're welcome! Yes, snakes are just...*shivers* No thank you. Please keep them far, FAR away from us.

  3. Oh this is so cool! I love all your answers :)

  4. Thanks for tagging me, Erika! This looks like a lot of fun :D Great answers :)
