There’s this meme that’s vaguely floating around the blogverse concerning Harry Potter. Since I’m an HP fan and had no other post idea, I’m gonna do it. This particular meme hails from The Magic Violinist. Oh, this is going to be so much fun.

Would you rather go to prom with Harry, Draco, or Ron?

Actually, I’d rather go to prom with Snape, but unfortunately that isn’t an option. I guess I’ll say Ron, because at least he’s funny. (See, Draco’s a meanie, and Harry’s melodramatic and super awkward.)

Would you rather be sorted into Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or Slytherin?

Slytherin or Ravenclaw. They’re both so epic. Gryffindor would be cool, too, but it’s kind of a clichéd House. I like evil peeps, and I like smart peeps. If only there were a Ravenclaw-Slytherin hybrid…

Would you rather explore the Forbidden Forest or the halls of Hogwarts?

That’s a no-brainer. Hogwarts, Hogwarts, hoggy warty Hogwarts! (Let’s face it, I’d spend all day running around on the moving staircases.)

Would you rather enroll in Potions, Charms, Divination or Defense Against the Dark Arts?

Well, if Snape were teaching Potions, I might go with that one. Actually, maybe not. I’d probably blow something up and get expelled. I’ll have to go with Defense Against the Dark Arts.

Would you rather buy an owl, cat, rat, or toad?

Hm, let’s see, such a tough decision.

I think y’all can guess.

Would you rather have in possession: the elder wand, resurrection stone, or the cloak of invisibility?

My answer is pretty much exactly like The Magic Violinist’s. The elder wand is cool, but, you know, with great power comes great responsibility. I wouldn’t want to risk blowing the world up or anything. And the resurrection stone doesn’t do anything. But the invisibility cloak, however…Yes, that would be very useful. Dang, I wish those things were real.

Would you rather be tutored by Luna Lovegood or Hermione Granger?

Hermione, if I actually wanted to learn something. Luna, if I wanted to explode with laughter.

Would you rather, in the final battle, fight against Nagini (the snake), or Bellatrix?

I would have a better chance of winning if I fought against Nagini. But Bellatrix is the most epic, and I’m a foolish human being, so I’d want to fight her.

Would you rather fight a basilisk or a dragon?

A dragon! Except, I wouldn’t fight it. I’d keep it as a pet. Dragons make lovely pets, you know. (And very handy ones, if you like to watch the world burn.)

Would you rather be part of the Malfoy family or the Weasley family?

I’m going with the obvious choice here–the Weasleys. The Malfoys have absolutely no sense of camaraderie. And that’s a little awkward.

Would you rather have butterbeer or pumpkin juice?

Um, is this a trick question? Butterbeer. Duh, guys.

Would you rather fly on a broomstick, Hagrid’s motorbike, or Buckbeak?

Mehhhh…I don’t know. Flying on a broomstick would be so epic, but I’d probably fall off. Broomsticks require lots of balance. I don’t have lots of balance. So…Buckbeak, I suppose.

Would you rather have a conversation with Daniel Radcliffe or J.K. Rowling?

Hmm, now let me think about this for a good long time…J.K. ROWLING OF COURSE DUH GUYS.

And that concludes this little meme-thingy! Also, if you’re reading this…consider yourself tagged. It saves me a lot of time.

Also, guess what? I’m going to camp! (to parrot Erin and Amanda…) Not real camp, sillies. Real camp is boring. Nope, I’m going to Camp NaNoWriMo. This means that I am being forced to  challenging myself to write 15,000 words in the month of July. Easy, right? …Wrong, in my case, but I will prevail by the end of the month! Despite my word count being sedentary at 0, I will write 15,000 words. I will, I will, I will.

Also also, over at The Notebook Sisters, Cait and Mime are hosting a critiquing party! If you’re anything like me, and the idea of editing any of your own written work leaves you quaking in a corner, then I strongly recommend you hop on over there. It’s a blast!

And with that, goodbye, trolley people! I’ll see you whenever I happen to see you. Yes indeed.
