2. Age: 23
3. A) Have you read all of the Harry Potter books that are out currently? Oh yes.
B) How many are there (excluding the two books done for charity)?
7... Why this question? NOW I'M DOUBTING MYSELF! AHHHHH!
C)Which one was your favourite? Explain.
I really liked Half Blood Prince. Action! Adventure! Character development! It was JK's finest.
Harry's POV got old and I liked all the dips into other people's memories that the last two books had... even if I thought that Deathly Hallows was, in a manner of speaking, rubbish.
HBP was just the most interesting and thrilling for me!
4. A)If you attended Hogwarts, what would be your favourite subject?
Potions. Hands down.
I see myself excelling in things where there is no room for interpretation. Apparently if you have a wand and a mouth, you can't always guarantee a correctly transfigured rat or a levitating feather. But if you have the right ingredients and something to put them in, you could probably get the potion correct. There is little room for putting your own style in it. It either right or wrong. There's no "half way". You can't splinch a potion.
I see Potions as the "Home Ec" of Hogwarts. I'm a pretty good cook and I see potions as recipes. I'd be awesome at it.
5. If you could store one memory in a Pensieve, what would it be? Explain.
My Wedding Proposal.
I would love to see the surprise on my face over and over again. That was one of the best moments ever. He and all my friends were in on it and it was a shock.
It was at a formal dinner and dance so i looked really beautiful and this just completed everything. It was so awesome.
6. If you were to face a boggart, what do you think it would it turn into? Explain why you think this.
I have thought hard about this. I am a HUGE wuss. I'm afraid of many things. A boggart? That awful thing would turn into ... either syringes or Sean Connery.
I fear physical pain more than most people (see: wussy) but I am absolutely terrified of Sean Connery. He's old and scary and his voice creeps me out and I just hate him so much! He causes me nightmares and I hate it. He's just a person but he's just horrifying.
-I can watch the old James bond movies with no problems.
-The SNL Celebrity Jeopardy sketches are absolutely HI-larious and I could watch them all day.
I just can't handle the real thing. I ran out of the Indiana Jones movie when it was released in theatres again.
7. What do you think you would you see in the Mirror of Erised?
Although I adore my fiance, I would see me in a gown with flowers and a crown as Miss America. I have wanted to have that title since I could walk in high heels. I have been doing pageants since I was 17 and I have worked hard. In my mirror, my work would have paid off.
8. Would you have put your name in the Goblet of Fire? Explain your reasoning.
I probably would have for show, but I know that in no way would I ever get picked. People would think that I was all brave and ready and all that jazz, but I would probably wet myself when faced with a dragon or scary merpeople. I could, however, beat everyone to the center of a maze. By hours. I'm very athletic and I would have some powerful tricks up my sleeve.
9. A)Would you use an Unforgiveable Curse, and if so, under what circumstances would you use an Unforgivable Curse?
Probably... depends on what it would get me and if I would get in trouble or not.
Because I wouldn't get caught. I would Imperio the snot out of people that could get me stuff.
And why should Harry Potter be the only one to get to use one and not get in trouble? (WTF War crime?!?!?) Because he's the chosen one? Because his Mommy loved him? My Mommy loves me, I should get to use one.
I don't think I'll kill anyone. And I doubt I'd Crucio anyone... mainly because they'll tell on me. But Imperio would prove to be useful.
10. Put the following words in order of importance to you: Adventurous, Ardent, Acute, Crafty, Benevolent, Accommodating, Burlesque, Drive. Please explain your top three and the one you place last.
1~ I like to be comfortable. If something is accomodating to me, then I like it even more. Why shouldn't we all be happy and comfortable?
2~ Burlesque is a sexy word. I think of shows and entertainment. Old Gypsy Rose Lee and Mae West movies. That's some hot stuff.
3~ If there's one thing I have, it's drive. I abhor laziness and people who want things to happen and don't do anything about it. Whiney people are so irritating!
8~I'm a wuss. I have no need for adventure I don't get what the big deal is about being brave and daring. I like being safe and healthy, thank you.
11. Please follow this link. Find your zodiac on the list and copy and paste the following paragrah in this question. After doing so, please bold which qualities you feel describe you and strike out the qualities that do not. You may add an explanation if you wish afterword.
Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Intellectual. Rational. Curious. Idealistic.
I have a very idealistic look out. I'm just too positive. It takes a lot to make me upset. I do worry, but I'm uppity.
I am very smart but not intellectual. I am a very hard worker and am intelligent because of that.
I'm very emotional and animated. I have strong feelings.
I majored in Communication Studies in college so I have a need to communicate and share ideas.
I'm vain and superficial. I admit it and I'm not ashamed. I have done pageants and modeling. I embrace beauty but in all forms. I'm not into the "You have to be thin to be pretty" thing, though. I am not tiny but I am quite pretty.
Air? Really? I always saw myself as more of an earth person.
12. What single quality do you feel goes the furthest in defining who you are? Explain why.
I am spastic, talkative, and busy. I always have to be moving or doing something. I hate to feel useless. I am outgoing, obsessive and fanatical. I do it all.
13. What makes a person deserving of your respect?
If they show they are a competent person. I respect them if they have proven themselves. All people deserve basic repect but it's very easy to lose respect for someone in my eyes.
14. What character from the series do you most relate to? Explain.
I am a mix. And I'm not even kidding.
I have been stamped as:
Pansy Parkinson because of my views on the wizard blood and my sense of entitlement. I stick to my beliefs and I don't care if I'm wrong... I'm going with what I believe in.
Cedric Diggory because of my loyalty and I have champion written all over me. I'm very skilled and confident. And if you help me cheat, I'll help you cheat right back!
Blaise Zabini because of my vanity and drive.
Fleur Delacour because of my personality and skill as a wizard champion.
15. Please describe the four canon houses in your own words.
I'm going to try and go beyond the obvious because we're all tired of hearing the same stuff, right? I'd like to see them as people, as friend groups, as a family.
This is the house with the most cannon time, yet it has so few dimentions. Most see just bravery and skill.
I think it's more than that. Being rash and making tough decisions is why Gryffindors battle within themselves so much. They build very tight friendships that are probably not tested as much as Hufflepuff or Slytherin. Their friendships will always be true, but not as strong as they could be.
These are the heroes. The ones we see as protectors. The aurors and the soldiers. The doctors and police officers. The firefighters and the cowboys. We love our stalwart lions!
They are the most tight knit of all the houses. I imagine Hufflepuffs to be strong and true in every aspect. They have friendships that are so bonded because they are teseted so much. They are the loyal ones but because they are so loyal, they might not see beyond just being a friend. Someone may make a wrong decision, but your 'Puff pal will be behind you, no matter what... even if it leads you both down the wrong path. As a loyal friend, you have to help and guide, as well.
Hufflepuffs are the counselors and leaders. They organize support groups and throw benefits. They are the healers and teachers. We owe them our sanity.
These have very tested relationships. You feel that if you are here, you are bad. It's not true. I'm sure there are 'Puff baddies! However, Slytherin is sometimes split in this respect. Looking out for number one can tell you to go light or go dark, depending on what benefits you. Your friends may go one way,and you may go the other. This tests you and your friends and you'll either remain friends throughout the disagreement, never speak again, or one of you will switch sides. You will get what you want, even if you leave your loved ones behind you. The ends will always justify the means when looking through a snakes eyes.
These are the lawyers and communicators. The socialites and the advertisers. They make things happen.
Wit and intelligence can build commmeraderie, and it often does. Friendships stem from common interests and Ravenclaws seem to radiate what they like by just looking at you. I imagine, when speaking to a 'Claw, you'll get their entire personality by spending 3 mintues with them. They know exactly who they are and what they want. Ravenclaws don't joke around. They're clever and could get you to do whatever they wanted. They are the most trustworthy if they have genuinely earn your trust. If they have betrayed you, then you realize how very crafty they can be. You should never be on a Ravenclaw's bad side.
These are the CEOs and the politicians. The entrepreneurs and the inventors. The computer scientists and the aerospace engineers. The movers and shakers of the world.
16. What qualities do you possess from each of the four houses (Please try choosing one from each)?
Gryffindor: I'm genuine, and I care about other people's well being. I'm also quick to judge and go with my gut instinct.
Hufflepuff: I stick with those who are with me. I'd never leave a man behind. I'm a great team player and work very hard.
Slytherin: I have a harsh sense of entitlement and I look out for myself most of the time. You're either with me, or against me. There is no middle ground.
Ravenclaw: I don't mess around. I'm clever and very resourseful. I've got a drive to succeed.
17. What hybrid house do you think you would be wrong to be put in, and why?
I'm not very brave, so I don't think I'd do well in any Gryff houses, but I would suprise you if I had to. I could be like Neville and be all brave when it was called for. I'm not a hero. I have no desire to embrace danger in anyway. I'm skilled but not stupid.
18. A) If you could change one thing about yourself, would you?
No. If I go changing myself, I wouldn't be me. And I think I'm pretty swell the way I am.
B) What would it be if you did?
C) Why? If I changed something, I wouldn't have had the same experiences that I did. My traits make me who I am. People are so stuck on changing themselves. I'm sure they are working on changing for the better and that's all well and good, but I just like how I am. I can't pick one thing I would change. Yes, I have some bad qualities, but I don't want to change. I'm fine. Thanks.
19. How did you find us? If it was from a post say where and who posted it (If possible, please leave a link to the actual post you saw.)
20. Have you applied before? If so, can you please leave a link to your last application?
21. A) Why should we accept you?
Because I'm pretty awesome.
I don't like to cause drama, but I do like to push. I'm pretty interested in the discussions you all have and I want to see if anyone has the same views as me on some subjects. I'd be an asset to any hybrid house. I always thought a single house could never contain me.
B)What makes you different than the other applicants we’re reviewing after you?
I don't like to do what's expected. I wanted to show you some insight that I hope you haven't seen here, yet. I'm not a hopless fangirl or a over-analyzing book disecter. I'm a person who enjoys the books and wants to be involved. I don't screw around with this. I'm pretty dedicated to HP.
22. How many hours weekly do you expect to be able to put into this community?
Hrm... It depends on if I like the house I'm sorted in to.
If I am... at least an hour or two a day. I am kind of addicted to livejournal.
23. Please leave some way of communication (either e-mail or AIM) here. If you do not feel confortable leaving such information open to the public, please e-mail me at email@example.com with the said information, and please state who you are also (meaning giving me your name and LJ name). If you are accepted, this information will be given to your future HoH, so they can contact you if needed.
24. If you are sorted into a House that does not have an Head of House, would you be interested in being one?
Sure. Why not?
