Miscellaneous is the tagline to store random posts that don’t really belong elsewhere. They may involve tags, awards, challenges, and other book blogging nonsense.
What’s Miscellaneous Today?
The Harry Potter Tag
Hello to another week of tags galore! I was tagged by my lovely sweet kernel of corn, Summer @ XingSings, and she thinks “sweet corn” cannot be the used the same as “sweet pea” (in terms of a nickname). Comment below if you agree/disagree with her.
(I’ll fight you for disagreeing.)
I don’t think it’d be fair if I answered this question because I’ve only read the first two books. So I won’t answer this.
Tough call—I thought Goblet of Fire was incredibly fun (and perhaps rightfully so). Deathly Hallows Part 2 was sheer bliss as a statement to the journey’s end. The direction of Prisoner of Azkaban felt right (I can’t really say otherwise since I didn’t read it). I’m speaking to the overall film as opposed to a “book translation”. They all have merits.
The fact that the cash cows decided to split Deathly Hallows into 2 parts…like, please, stop this trend. I would have even paid a bit more to sit there for 4-5 hours instead forreal. I don’t care if my bladders explode.
Parts of the books/movies that make you cry?
DUMBLEDORE? DOBBY!!!?!!!!?!??! The feels were too real.
Have you seen the Buzzfeed video “If Hermione Were The Main Character in Harry Potter”? No, seriously, if you haven’t–go watch it now. It’s so great. This is an excerpt:
“This carriage is for boys only.”
(It was in this moment that Hermione first learned a very valuable skill: throwing shade.)
“I’ve read all the rules, there’s no such things as a boys only carriage–“
“Do you know who that is? That’s Harry Potter…the boy who lived.”
“It’s funny you should say that because I’m Hermione Granger…the girl who gave literally zero fucks.”
LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I’m dying.
It reasons why she’s up there in my personal list. But I don’t know. My attachment to characters is way different because I grew up with the films. Perhaps Neville or Luna? Yes, probably one of those two…
What would your Patronus be?
I was going to say an Otter…because otters are wonderful—see Exhibit A:
But because otters are already Hermione’s thing…I’m going to have to say Quokka. Yes, this little guy is the reason why I want to travel to the down under and take a selfie with it. Oh my goodness…but maybe I’m saying this because a baby marsupial is a Joey… I AM MY OWN PATRONUS?!!!?!
If you could have the Resurrection Stone, the Invisibility Cloak, or the Elder Wand, which one would you choose?
My mind tells me invisibility cloak but I know I’d prefer the Elder Wand.
What House would you be in?
I’ve always thought that I was a Hufflepuff (I don’t know why) but every test I’ve done and people I’ve talked to think I’m a Slytherin. Then a month ago I did that cross-sorting house quiz and got Slytherpuff. It’s a sign.
If you could meet any member of the cast, who would it be?
I’m actually not that big on any of the actors in this franchise or their off-screen personalities so I can’t provide a definitive answer.
If you were on the quidditch team, what position would you play?
Probably a chaser. It seems the least stressful of the bunch…
Were you happy with the ending?
It was fine.
How much does Harry Potter mean to you?
The franchise [obviously] doesn’t hold as much meaning to me as it does for every other book blogger alive who has read and re-read the series but it still was a part of my childhood. It’s that commitment and all those years and fun moments going to the theatres to watch the film with some buds that made the whole experience pretty darn wonderful.

…and you if you would like to do it (it’s a pretty solid schedulable-post!)
I’m trying to tag more (and different) bloggers! If you haven’t heard of some of them–check em out. They’re all wonderful people!
If you need some reading material, I’d recommend reading this weeks discussion post: “[Fandom] Ships Don’t Sink…They Turn Into Shipmarines”
I’m also slowly getting into using Goodreads more and will go on a friending spree soon. Though you can totally make it easier for me by clicking the link below or providing me a link to your GR!
