The 'My Hogwarts Story' Tag



While at work one morning, randomly thinking about our upcoming trip to the Harry Potter Studio Tour at the end of the year, I started thinking all about what I'd be like if my letter really did arrive over 13 years ago.
I decided that I wanted to share all of that with you and then had the ingenious (if I do say so myself :P) idea to just turn it into a tag! I have checked and can't find anything similar except 'The Harry Potter Tag' which I have already done, but if there is...I do apologize!

Hogwarts was there for me in dark times when I was young and Hogwarts will always be my home.
Here is my story.

----------

Are you Pure Blood, Half Blood or Muggle Born?
Half blood. Dads a muggle, Mams a witch...nasty surprise for him when he found out. ;)
Though in all seriousness, that is true. Neither my Dad nor my partner are that open to the world of magic, but my Mam is.


Which wand chose you (what is is made of)?


Did you take an Owl, Cat, Toad or Rat with you?
An owl of course. I'm allergic to cats (and they're too anti social for me), I'd be too scared to lose my toad and wouldn't want my rat to end up being a baddy. :P  I love birds and they are the most useful pet to have what with fetching mail and such. 


Where did the Sorting Hat place you?
Hufflepuff!


What house did you want to be in?
Originally Ravenclaw. I've never identified with either Gryffindor nor Slytherin, being neither brave and daring or cunning and ambitious. But the more and more I learned about Hufflepuff, the more I embraced it, realizing I really am one and now I am very proud to be! 


Which lessons are your favorite and least favorite?
My favorite is Care of Magical Creatures. Getting to work with animals during a lesson? Yes please!
My least favorite, or the one I dislike would be Arithmancy...I'm not much of a numbers person.


The form your Patronus takes is...
A rabbit. I'd like to think it incorporates traits and happy memories of my old pet rabbits that I have lost in recent years.


When confronted with a Boggart, what does it look like to you?
Moths and Butterflies I'd expect...though I'm quite a scaredy cat so a few things could be possibilities!


Do you partake in any school sports or magical hobbies?
Wizarding gardening, tending to animals of all sorts (especially thestrals and hippogriffs) and of course photography. 


If you have free time, where would you be found hanging out?
Outside! By the lake, under a tree, strolling the grounds. Anywhere where I can breathe the air, take in the views and hopefully get a glimpse of some magical creatures.


You are most likely to get detention for what?
Hmm. Not meeting a deadline for a paper perhaps. I've always been the one to leave work until the last minute! 


What career do you want after leaving Hogwarts?
I'm not brave or ambitious enough to be an Auror or work for the Ministry, not caring or intelligent enough to work at St Mungos. I want to be a photographer...though most certainly not for the Prophet while Rita Skeeter is writing for it!

Ahh how I wish I could be there right now! I hope you have enjoyed the tiny peek into my time at Hogwarts and I'd love all other students to take part in this and then post your link below so we can have a read. However in particular I would like to tag -

  2. This is a great post! Although I am a Ravenclaw, I really admire Hufflepuffs! A rabbit patronus would be nice, I imagine that would be a very loyal form. Care of Magical Creatures would be my second favourite subject, probably after Transfiguration. I'm really excited to see the posts of the people you've tagged =]

  6. Funny how the first time I logged in Pottermore I was sorted into Gryffindor but I did it again (creating another account) the other day and I was sorted into Hufflepuff and to be honest I'm not mad about it. My personality fit better with them and I'm very proud of that. Hey, we are nice and loyal :)
    I would love to get both an owl and a cat. I adore those two animals hahaha and my favourite lesson would be Defense Against The Dark Arts and my least favourite Herbology; not really a fan LOL
    Absolutely love this tag!!!!
