a survey and some pimpin'  


Put the books in order from favorite to least favorite:
Hm. POA, DH, HBP, SS, OOTP, COS
How many times have you read the series: The entire thing, PS through DH? Once. I started rereading and finished HBP just in time to read DH. Individual books? Various times.
Favorite chapter from your favorite book: Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot & Prongs in POA.
5 Favorite Characters: Sirius, Remus, Snape, Luna, Fred&George (if we're talking canon, James doesn't make the cut, because he really doesn't DO anything; fanon, he'd be right up top. Ha.)
3 Least Favorite Characters: Dobby, Umbridge, Percy
Favorite member of the Trio: Hermione. Does she own, or does she own? Would Harry have lived past first year if she wasn't awesome? No, no he wouldn't've.
5 favorite quotes: Hell if I know. These might not be entirely ccurate, I'm not going ot research it, the game's back on. LIRL
1.“Of course it is happening in your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?”
2.“It does not do well to dwell on dreams and forget to live."
3."Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.” (Dumbledore owns the quote section.)
4.“It was the difference between being dragged into a battle to the death and walking into the arena with your head held high. Some people might think there was little to choose between the two, but Dumbledore knew -- and so did my parents, thought Harry with a rush of fierce pride, and so do I -- that it made all the difference in the world."
5.“There’s no need to call me sir, Professor.” (Harry's lone instance of BAMFness.)
3 Favorite magical creatures: Hippogriffs, Unicorns, Dragons
Favorite family: Black family FTW. Plus that encompasses, like, everyone.
Favorite villain: Voldemort! Obviously.
Favorite death Eater: Bellatrix, who I had for 'favourite villian' until I realized there was 'favourite Death Eater'.
Favorite non-Hogwarts magical building: There's.. lots of them? We've seen two. Wait, Gringotts. Because their security is not as good as it ought to be, clearly. LIRL
Favorite Diagon Alley location: Weasley's Wizard Wheezes, of course.
3 Favorite Spells:
Accio - SO CONVENIENT. Srsly. Accio plot point!
Protego
Crucio - because it makes all other pain irrelevant. /LIRL/

3 Favorite Potions:
Veritaserum (I like its name)
Polyjuice Potion (because if you're going to save the world, you'd better have lots)
Felix Felicis

Favorite Unforgivable Curse: LIRL I can't say that I have a favourite.

Favorite Department of Mysteries Room: THE ROOM OF LOVE. Omfg that was so hilariously lame.
Biggest surprise: SNAPE KILLS DUMBLEDORE :OOOO At the time it was intense. Or would've been, if, y'know, I hadn't had it spoiled.

Biggest letdown: Wtf Remus/Tonks was so weird in DH. LIRL Not really the "biggest letdown" though. I didn't have any HUGE letdowns, just little things that made me go "Wtf?"

Favorite kind of transportation: Flying would be flippin' sweet, but Apparition is massively convenient. QUICK, APPARATE TO SAFTEY!

Favorite Weasley: Fred. :(

Favorite Order member: Uhhhm. Sirius?

Favorite pet: Trevor

One character you'd bring back to life: Fred. You can't bring back Remus without bringing back Tonks (and vice versa), and Sirius ...had nothing to live for, and who cares about everyone else. Poor George is so alone now, lirl.

Favorite Harry moment: His sarastic moments always made me be like YESSSS. Lots of 'em.

Favorite Ron moment: I don't like Ron much. I'm sure there was something btu I'm drawing a blank.

Favorite Hermione moment: I like her a lot, but I loved when she flipped the hell out at Ron after he came back in DH. Fucking right, what an ass, you bring the smackdown, Hermione.

Favorite Ginny moment: We didn't see this, but stealing Godric's sword? FUCKIN A'.

Favorite Neville moment: WHEN HE OWNS AN EIGTH OF VOLDEMORT'S SOUL.

Favorite Luna moment: Commentating Quidditch.

Favorite Snape moment: Hahahah I love Snape. A lot. So basically everything. I did love watching him bicker with Sirius, though.

Favorite Dumbledore moment: I really liked when he came to fetch Harry from the Dursleys. It was some good Dumbledore-Harry bonding time. Lirl.

Favorite Voldemort moment: He's such a BAMF in GOF when he's taunting Harry and doing his Standard Villain Monologue.

Favorite Sirius moment: I liked ...pretty much everything but particularly the Shrieking Shack scene.

Favorite Weasley family moment: When we first met them in PS.

Favorite Draco moment: Whenever he made an arse of himself, haha. Like when he was like 'Um... that might be Harry Potter... I dunno... maybe... maybe not.... idk.... lol..." and when eh got PUNCHED IN THE FACE. LIRL

Moment that will always make you cry: Oops I never cried. If anything came close it would probably be the Resurrection Scene though.

Favorite Hogwarts room: Room of Requirement

Favorite class: Transfiguration or DADA

Favorite teacher: McGonagall

Favorite DADA teacher: Remus

Least favorite teacher: Umbridge. Fuckkkk

Favorite non-human Hogwarts resident: LOL GRAY LADY THE CONVENIENT PLOT POINT

Favorite Hogsmeade location: Three Broomsticks

Favorite Triwizard Champion: Harry

Favorite Triwizard Task: The Underwater Task

Which character you'd ask to the Yule Ball: James or Sirius or Remus would be pretty snazzy, but I'd be sufficiently pleased with Fred or George

Which character you'd like to use a love potion on: This question is like "WHO WOULD YOU LIKE TO RAPE?"

Which character you'd like to use Veritaserum on:Peter. I want to know what the hell happened here… <- for real

Favorite HP website: UR.org!

Favorite podcast: Don't listen

Favorite fanartist: buttfacemakani is definitely my favourite, but I also love reallycorking

Most ridiculous Potter theory you've heard: Remus is James and Ron will betray Harry. <- I read a fic about that once, about Remus being James. Lirl. Um. There was a theory that the potion Dumbledore drank was the REAL horcrux and that "RAB" ws a nickname for Dumbledore and...?? Wtf kids.

Favorite LJ HP community: I would love black_family if it was active. nest_of_spiders was amazing while it was running.

Character you're most like: Yeah someone else would have to tell me this one.

House you think you'd be sorted into: haha probably like, Hufflepuff. ftl :(

Your patronus would be a: ...something WICKED.

Your boggart would be: I dunno. I have no irrational fears so maybe ...Dementor?

To you, Amortentia would smell like: hell if I know

You'd use Felix Felicis to: play the million dollar lottery <- GOOD CALL. but more than a mill plz.

What job would you most like to try: I have no idea.LIRL

Which would you rather see - a sequel or a prequel: Neither. Encyclopedia's good, thnx. (I like fandom freedom in Marauder-era crap, and... wtf? Sequel? NO THNX.)

Put the movies in order from favorite to least favorite:
OOTP, GOF, and I haven't seen the others recently enough to know which I like more, but probably PS, POA, COS.

Actor most like the book character: Evanna Lynch as Luna or Tom Felton as Draco. She is PERFECT and he is perfectly annoying.

Actor least like the book character: MICHAEL GAMBON AS DUMBLEDORE WTF WTF WTF :(

Favorite movie set: Yule Ball and Great Hall

3 Favorite lines from movies:
1.“Sorry, Professor, I must not tell lies." Oh SNAPPP
2.“Why don't you go play with your chemistry set?" OH SNAP AGAIN.
3.“How touchingly paternal. Perhaps Potter will grow up to be a convict just like his dear godfather." OH SNAP, SNAPE.

Favorite movie scene: I liked watching the twins stick it to the man in OOTP.

Favorite scene in the movies not included in the books: LOL SIRIUS PUNCHING LUCIUS IN THE FACE IS MADE OF WIN. I liked the random Harry/Sirius bonding scenes too.

Scene you were most disappointed didn't make it into the movie: Hahaha u guys are fucked for Snape's Worst Memory now, bitches!

EITHER/OR


Floo powder or broom: Broom

Bernie Bott's Every Flavor Beans or Chocolate Frogs: Chocolate frogs!

Death Eaters or Dumbledore's Army: DA is badass. So are Death Eaters, but I'm not actually going to rape and pillage.

Fred or George: Fred!

CAPSLOCK HARRY or Emo!Harry: they're totally one and the same

The Ministry of Magic or Gringotts: Ministry

Sirius or Lupin: Sirius is more fun.

Occlumency or Legilimency: Legilimency is SO much more interesting. Occlumency is clearing your mind, yeah? BORING.

Animagus or Metamorphagus: OH, TOUGH CALL. :| Can I be both.

Mermish or Parselmouth: Mermish, everyone would like, throw rocks at me if I was a parselmouth.

Invisibility cloak or Pensieve: Cloak! HELLO DEATHLY HALLOWS/MASTER OF DEATH :|

Herbology or Care of Magical Creatures: Care of Magical Creatures

Professor Binns or Professor Umbridge: BINNS.

Yule Ball or Quidditch Championship: Quidditch! Sports are fun to watch, I don't like dressing up or dances

Peeves or Nearly Headless Nick: Nearly Headless Nick.

Hippogriff or Thestrals: Thestrals are fucking badass

Durmstrang or Beaubaxtons: Beauxbations. You spelled it wrong, survey. ALSO IT'S NOT "BOXBATENS", DAMNIT, GOFMOVIE.

S.P.E.W or the Inquisitorial Squad: SPEW so that next time you want to sacrifice yourself in a scary cave you have someone to go with you!3

Three Broomsticks The Leaky Cauldron: Broomsticks.



I've lost my interest in pimping, but I have written lots more drabbles:

'Out, Damn Spot' - a scene centering around Severus plucked from POA.

'Bluffing' - a 100-word companion to Valedictory, starring Sirius.

'The Height of Dishonour' - inspired by the line in DH "[James] would have thought it the height of dishonour to mistrust his friends.

Slightly longer:

'But For the Grace of God': Severus duels James after Hogwarts, and the battle makes a lasting impression.

"LOL SIRIUS PUNCHING LUCIUS IN THE FACE IS MADE OF WIN." <-- Why did I not think of this?! Totally bad ass moment. OotP was filled with them.

BTW- Love the Drabble, 'But For the Grace of God,'
Kali_thirty2flavors on October 4th, 2007 08:19 pm (UTC)
IT WAS SO TOTALLY AMAZING. Hahahaha. Plus it's always good to be (pleasantly) surprised in a movie where you know what's going to happen. Sirius was such a bamf in OOTP, man.

And thank you! I am rather fond of it myself.
