Harry Potter Tag...

source
So we all know I'm a sucker for anything Harry Potter related and I very rarely do "Tags" but when I read Hayley's blogpost where she did the "Harry Potter Tag" I just had to do it so here we go...

1.What is your favourite book?
I really love 'The Goblet of Fire' and 'The Deathly Hallows' but if I had to just choose one I think Deathly Hallows would probably steal it. I think though the reason that Deathly Hallows probably steals it though is because everything suddenly makes sense and things are revealed but all the previous books helped build upon the amazingness of the Deathly Hallows so it was a massive joint effort on all the books parts :) 

2. What is your favourite Film?
You know I really thought I was going to say 'The Deathly Hallows part 2' for this one but I actually loved 'The Half blood Prince' I think because there was a lot more hilarious bits in there for me that I really enjoyed and 'The Order of the Phoenix' was just a massive disappointment for me so after that 'The Half Blood Prince' was just amazing. But I would say 'The Philosopher Stone' was probably a joint favourite for me because it was where it all started and that movie was just magical watching everything that I read just come to life for the first time and I was only 11 when I saw that movie and about to go up to secondary school the following September and I was determined that I was going to go to Hogwarts and that movie was just preparing me for it. What a strange child I was lol.

3. What is your least favourite book?
I have never really enjoyed 'The Chamber of Secrets' I'm not even sure why but in the millions of times that I have re-read the books it just doesn't seem to quite measure up to the rest. 

4. What is your least favourite film?
I would say it would have to be "The Order of the Phoenix' and this isn't because it was a bad movie per se but it was just such a massive let down from the book. I felt like it just missed so much stuff out from the book that 16 year old Stacie thought was vitally important and should have made it on screen. It just wasn't as amazing as I wanted it to be.  
5. What parts of the books/films made you cry?
I don't think I actually ever cried whilst reading the books but there were parts that made me sad like when you found out that Snape had been in love with Lily all along and Dobby dies. But watching the movies I was a mess when Dobby died. Dobby was a particularly favourite character of mine and to see him die was heart wrenching.   

6. If you could hook up with a character who would it be?
You know I don't even know. Maybe Ron, or one of the Weasley twins?  

7. Who is your favourite character? 
Oh I don't know. Probably Dobby though I have always had a soft spot for Dobby. 

8. Who is your least favourite character?
Fenrir Greyback. I know it is probably a odd one to choose but the idea and image of him just creeps me out and the way he likes to bite children just seems slightly peodophilic to me, just creepy!

9. What is your least favourite line?
I don't actually have a least favourite line. I don't really read books looking for a line I hate the most or watch a movie and think "that was a awful line" I tend to think about lines that stand out the most. 

10. What would your patronus be?
I swear I've done a internet patronus test before I cannot for the life of me remember what I got though. I'm sure I would get a cat or something Feline though like a tiger or a lion or something. I'm just too much of a cat person for it not to be but not in the Dolores Umbridge kind of way ;)

11. If you could have a resurrection stone, invisibility cloak or elder wand which would you choose? 
The resurrection stone seems a bit pointless to me so it would have to be either the invisibility cloak or the Elder wand. I think the Elder wand would win out though but I would totally be like Dumbledore and not advertise that I had it because I wouldn't want to be hunted down for the wand. 

12. Which house would you be in? 
So there's a story for this one guys. When I was in Year 6 those many moons ago back between September of 2001 and July of 2002 I had a teacher who was obsessed with Harry Potter. We got to listen to the Harry Potter's on cassette tapes, you know the ones Stephen Fry narrates but it also meant the tables we sat on were named after the Hogwart houses. They were a bit like the sets we had when we moved into Secondary school. So people who were on the Ravenclaw table were the smartest and probably didn't need too much help with their work, so it was the highest table, then it was Gryffindor next highest, then it was Slytherin and then Hufflepuff. I was on Ravenclaw Table I was actually quite a smart child I'm not entirely sure when that stopped lol. Young Stacie though would have definitely been in Ravenclaw, the more adult and mature Stacie would probably be in Gryffindor.
    
13. If you could meet any member of the cast who would it be?
It would probably be the big 3, Emma, Rupert and Daniel, just because if you're going to meet any of the cast I feel like it would have to be them. 

14. If you were on the Quidditch team which position would you play? 
Probably it would be a Keeper just because whenever I have ever played football in my life I have always been a goalkeeper so I suppose that sort of translates into the Quidditch world. 

15. Were you happy with the ending? 
Yes and No. I thought it was a perfectly good ending and I quite liked finding out that they all had children and all of that type of thing but I would definitely just like more books following their lives and their children's lives, you know? I just can't let go I suppose. 

16. How much does Harry Potter mean to you?
If you know me you will know that Harry Potter is just a massive part of who I am I love it SO much! It was always there in my childhood I was reading the books before the movies came out and then I was always there on the first day a movie would come out to go and see it. I just think it is so relatable and I know it's a young adults book but it has themes and messages in there that teach children some really valuable life lessons and it is something I will be forcing my nieces and nephews to read when they get older and when they have more of an attention span I'll probably read it to them as well.

SO guys there you are, there is my version of the Harry Potter Tag that I just had to do after reading the lovely Hayley's one from Water Painted Dreams. Go and check that out. I got far to into this Tag and it has now made me want to re-read the books even though I have already done that fairly recently lol. And it's making me want to revisit the Harry Potter studios again. I think we actually plan on doing that again in December. Yes I know obsessed.

  1. I think I need to re-read and re-watch all of it, so I could do this tag on my blog :)

  2. Every year I try and re-read all the books! Although the films are amazing, there are so many silly things that they miss out that I think are so important, such as Kreacher and Harry actually becoming 'friends' in Dealthy Hallows and the House Elves storming in during the Battle of Hogwarts xx

    1. OMG yes Amy! I feel exactly the same I really wanted them to put in the bit about Harry becoming friends with Kreacher and I really wanted to see Hermione create SPEW as well for the house elves. All little things really but I'm the same.
