Also, we have a few changes happening. Ashley (who started this whole thing in the first place) has handed off the link-up to Kim, Tarole, myself and our newest host Becky. We are also going to start doing the linkup on Wednesdays instead of Mondays with the hope that more people's brains will be a little more alert for some great HP sharing.
We also got a new button!
And now, to the questions!
If you could be any Harry Potter character who would you be and why?
I know a lot of people are going to say Hermione but I would honestly want to be Harry Potter. I know there was a lot of readers who felt he got annoying and too moody at times but I always loved his character. While Hermione is definitely my second choice, I would love to see life through the eyes of the main character and also make some better choices along the way that could've made life a little easier for him. But overall I just think HP is a great, complex character.
Favorite single chapter in a Harry Potter book?
I can't pick just one so I'll pick three: The Department of Mysteries (Book 5 chp 34), The Battle of Hogwarts (Book 7 chp 31) and of course, The Prince's Tale ( Book 7 chp 33). They are all just so good and The Prince's Tale is the one chapter that makes everything in the series make sense.
What would ideal class schedule at Hogwarts look like?
If History was taught by someone (or thing) other then Professor Binns, that would be on there as well as Transfiguration, Defense Against the Dark Arts, Potions, Charms and Ancient Ruins. I know, Ancient Runes. Not exactly a hot commodity but it goes beyond recent history to an older time in magic and it's like a language of sorts. I think it would be something I could easily get sucked into because I really like learning theoretical stuff like that.
Looks like I'd need a Time Turner though to make that class schedule work!
