Harry Potter Anniversary!

Hey there Potterheads! (And non-Potterheads, you are lovely too – but seriously, what’s wrong with you?)

So today, June 26th, apparently marks twenty one years of Harry Potter? *gasp* How??? How am I this old??? (And also like so not a true fan because I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT THIS DATE WHAT)

Anyway, darling Luana @ Bookstorm Girl knew about it and was kind enough to tag me to do this awesome HP tribute throughout the week – which I very clearly failed because I missed the whole thing… Except, almost! I managed to post on the very last day! So small cheer for me? *waves a victory flag half-heartedly*

Thank you very much, Luana! ❤ And now – allons-y!

What house are you in?

Gryffindor! I’ve taken the test twice because I honestly was expecting to have changed throughout the years but no, I’m still a proud lion ❤

What is your wand?

“Larch wood with a Unicorn hair core 11 ½” and Supple flexibility”

Picture of wand

Strong, durable and warm in colour, larch has long been valued as an attractive and powerful wand wood. Its reputation for instilling courage and confidence in the user has ensured that demand has always outstripped supply. This much sought-after wand is, however, hard to please in the matter of ideal owners, and trickier to handle than many imagine. I find that it always creates wands of hidden talents and unexpected effects, which likewise describes the master who deserves it. It is often the case that the witch or wizard who belongs to the larch wand may never realise the full extent of their considerable talents until paired with it, but that they will then make an exceptional match.

What is your Patronus?

A Granian Winged Horse! I actually haven’t seen these around, which is quite cool.


What would your boggart be?

I went ahead and took the same quiz as Luana and got… My own corpse. Talk about dramatic! But I mean, who wouldn’t freak out if they saw their own corpse? And does this mean my nose will be falling off any time soon?

What position would you play in Quidditch?

Beater, because it sounds like loads of fun. *snickers*

Would you rather take Divination or Care of Magical Creatures as an elective?

Honestly, I don’t know? Both sound pretty awesome in their own way. I guess I would probably go for Care of Magical Creatures because I’m a sucker for animals yet that would also mean increasing my chances of dying/getting injured by 150% so…


What pet would you take to Hogwarts?

OMG ALL THE PETS! But probably just a cat to snuggle with.

Which of the Deathly Hallows would you choose?

Definitely agree with Luana! The invisibility cloak has been one of my fantasy gifts ever since I was little. (Needless to say, I’ve had a very disappointing childhood.)

Would you enter your name for the Triwizard Tournament?

Yes, but not before downing a lot of liquid luck. (And I’ll let you judge what kind of liquid luck that would be.)

1. It was originally suspended because too many students were dying.

Would you rather drink Butterbeer or Pumpkin Juice?

I’ve had both and can safely say I prefer Butterbeer! It’s just so yummy, you guys *_*

Favourite teacher at Hogwarts?

I don’t remember which one I liked more! It’s been too long T_T I think pretty much the usual suspects?

Least favorite teacher at Hogwarts?


Would you rather have the Marauder’s Map or a Time-Turner?

I’m with Luana here, Time-Turners are dangerous stuff and shouldn’t be messed with. So the Marauder’s Map.

For, uh, reasons.

What Hogwarts ghost would you like the most?

Nearly Headless Nick! Biggest drama queen ever.

Would you join the Frog Choir?

Yes! I love choirs ^_^ (even scary ones)

Harry Potter Singing GIF

Would you rather get a pygmy puff or Weasleys’ Wildfire Whiz-bangs?

A pygmy puff because they are the cutest ❤

The Hogwarts Express trolley is passing by, what do you get from it?

God, I would probably get one of everything? Is that… Is that allowed?

Would you sneak into the restricted section of the Hogwarts library?

I have the invisibility cloak, don’t I? 😉 Also, it’s a LIBRARY – of course!

If you could save one character from the Battle of Hogwarts, who would it be?

I’m not tagging anyone because I’m super late and the challenge is pretty much over but feel free to celebrate in whatever way you like! 🙂

So there you go! Hope you all had a merry Harry Potter Anniversary and please leave a comment below letting me know what you thought of this post ❤

  1. Ahhh, so glad you did it!! I wouldn’t know about the anniversary either if it wasn’t for Margaret’s event 😂 Also, WE’RE BOTH GRYFFINDORS! And I love your patronus!! It’s so rare to get a magical creature.Your boggart though… *shudder* So far you’re the only one who’d enter the Triwizard Tournament. We be brave (or insane).
    Loved your post!

      I think I would have liked for my Patronus to be something cute and small like an otter or the like but it’s nice to have a rare one, I guess xD
      My boggart freaked the hell out of me, to be honest! I was not expecting something so creepy… Oh well!
      And I think we’re insane… Pure and simple. But like I said, alcohol would have to be involved for sure hahaha
      Thanks, hon! I’m so happy to hear it ❤ ^^

      1. Well, it’s your patronus!! You can make it into a tiny cute cute horse, right? Is that against the rules? AND I GET IT, IT’S FREAKY!! Lol, we ARE insane… best of luck to us 😂


  2. Well….I guess there is something wrong with me because erm well erm (mumbles incomprehensibly ” I am a non-Potter head” ).
    Yes…I know…I am horrid and I should deserve to be turned into a magic wand never to be seen again 😂😂
    Even though I am not a huge Harry Potter fan (again…my apologies), I loved reading this post. It has almost succeeded in turning me into a Potter head lol 😂😂 You still haven’t lost your touch (not that I was even remotely worried about that )! Hope all is going well with you, and I look forward to reading new posts from you again! 😊

    1. Hahaha not at all! I don’t mind you not being a Potterhead because you’re already the dearest of friends and awesome person ^^ (it’s true that I want to take the Muggle out of you but oh well, some other time! I have patience! xD)
      I’m so glad to hear that, thank you so much for being so lovely as always ❤ I'm very lucky to receive such a warm welcome, and after such a long time… Ugh, missed this! And missed you guys. Thank you again for reading and liking this post. Means a lot, and especially since the theme is not something you fancy all that much hahaha
      Can't wait to read your blog again too! ^^

      1. Haha..you still really know how to make me blush lol. Thanks so much for such a warm and really kind reply. It really makes me very shy, but I am very happy to see you here again. Hope all is going well with you and as I said before: welcome back 😊


        1. Oh everything is going great, thank you, just tons of things keeping me a busy bee… I know you’ve had a rough patch so I’m really hoping you’re doing much better now ❤ I'm the happiest when I see others happy, and you are of those people that deserve it most of all 🙂

          1. I’m glad to hear it, as I really miss you. It was always very nice talking to you. I am doing good, thank you. Much better than a few weeks ago, and I am slowly getting back into my groove so to speak 😊Thanks for the kind words really appreciate it 😊❤️


  3. I have never seen a Granian Winged Horse as a patronus! That’s amazing and it looks beautiful! ❤
    My least favourite teacher is definitely Umbridge as well. I hate her sooo much. Also, I would NEVER enter the Triwizard Tournament. I just wouldn't want to bother with it, plus I dislike doing things in front of a crowd of people, so I don't think it would really work out. 😂
    I would take a Time-Turner, definitely. I always feel like I don't have enough time to do everything that I want. So this would definitely help! 😀
    Wonderful post! ❤ I loved reading it!

    1. Me neither! I have to say I rather like the uniqueness of it but at the same time I’m also kind of jealous of everyone who has cute little animals as patronuses hahaha
      Umbridge was such a terrible person, uuuughhhh So glad she’s out of the way for good! I think a younger me wouldn’t, but I’ve wanted to try new and exciting things lately so why not? Plus, what kind of Gryffindor would I be if I didn’t risk my life in such a flashy way? xD
      I feel the same way but I also think I would mess things up royally and just not be able to put everything back together… But I’m with you on that idea for sure! If only we could tweak things here and there 😉
      Thank you so much, lovely ❤ I'm glad you enjoyed it!

  4. Sophie,
    Awesome post and HAPPY HARRY POTTER ANNIVERSARY!! im in Ravenclaw, also hate Umbridge *along with the rest of the world* I WOULD HAVE entered the Triwizard tournament if touching the winning cup didin’t teleport you to lord Voldemort. and wouldn’t it be soooooo fun to buy everything from the hogwarts candy trolley? Name one thing better than magical candy? *I know, very hard* We also share the same wand, except mine is 13 3/4 inches. (I do have to take the test again though….) I love your blog and keep up the good work 😀

    1. Thank you so much, Katie!! I’m so sorry this is really late but I’ve been away from the blogosphere lately…
      I hope you had a wonderful, wonderful Harry Potter Anniversary!!! ❤ ❤ I know I had, it was pretty cool 😀
      Ooooh good point! I had completely forgotten about that… Maybe I'll have to rethink my application xD
      I can't name anything… NOTHING IS BETTER THAN MAGICAL CANDY. And OMG I'm craving chocolate frogs and every flavour beans right now T_T
      Ah that's so awesome! I don't really know what the inches do… I think it's a height thing? I believe it's explained but I don't remember all that well. Will need to research!
      Thank you very much, darling ❤ ❤ I love your blog as well and can't wait to read more of it when I get the tiniest bit of free time D:

      1. Sophie,
        Yassss! Magical candy! #yum
        As for the wand height, I think it means how much “they express themselves” or “how much personality one has”. I remember saying that a short wizard/witch could have a long wand, but they would have to be expressive and have a lot of personality and vise versa. I will have to check, but I’m pretty sure that’s right…
        Thanks for the great post 👍

  5. 21 Years. Wow. It just doesn’t seem like it was that long ago! I still haven’t read the books (horrible, I know) but I will eventually. Great post, Sophie. I love the images that you added in too. Happy Reading!

    1. I know! I was five years old when it came out, FIVE. Where has the time gone… I still remember reading it only when it became truly famous, so at around 11. But it’s still a lifetime ago.
      It’s not a series for everyone, for sure, but I would definitely give it a try just in case 🙂 I know I don’t adore it as much now as I did when I was younger but it still holds a cherished spot in my heart ❤
      Thank you so much for stopping by, Diana!

  6. I’ve taken the quiz three times, and got Hufflepuff each time… ugh. There’s some crazy Hufflepuff crusaders out there, who crusade against people like me. I just hate being a Hufflepuff. The whole part in the song where Helga takes “all the rest” just makes me feel like the kid who got picked last for kick ball in gym class. Lol. Your boggart – yikes – that’s creepy.

    1. Aw don’t feel like that! Hufflepuff is lovely (my boyfriend’s a Hufflepuff and I can attest to him being a great kid hahaha) and the best sort out there, I find.
      The only problem was when people decided they all wanted to be Hufflepuff after watching Fantastic Beasts… It’s like everyone’s rigged their results to be in Hufflepuff *because* of Newt, even if they don’t belong there. It’s silly.
      Gryffindors used to be “the cool ones” and now we’re seen as cliché and undesirable… Slytherings too, I believe. It’s like the tables have turned xD
      Which makes Hufflepuff, and thus yourself, totally cool now ^^ Embrace your inner badger, girl! ❤


  7. You have disappeared on us for awhile! I’m in Ravenclaw. I have my family took the test and they are Ravenclaw as well haha.. I forgot how horrible Prof Umbridge is. I’m re-reading the series starting last year and I just finished book 4 recently, so I guess I’ll find out how wicked Prof Umbridge is pretty soon 🙂 I like the invisibility cloak too. It’s good to have you back Sophie!

    1. Yeah, I’m so sorry about that! I tend to get busy with other stuff – hobbies, work, friends, family, etc etc and basically put blogging in the backburner. But I’m so pumped to get back to it!
      Ravenclaw is an awesome house too ^^ (Not as great as Gryffindor of course but…… :P) It’s so cool that your family is Ravenclaw as well!
      I hope you’re enjoying your re-read, Jasmine. It definitely takes you back to simpler times, doesn’t it? I’d love to do the same but I have so many new books I want to read I find it too time-consuming, especially considering their size! But anyway, I look forward to hearing about your experience 🙂 ❤

                    1. Alright I’ll do it.
                      But my mom is telling me not to do it right now so I’ll do it after my board exams. Will there be problem if am late? I’ll not be able to join NEWT. But I’ll Read the books after my school. So sorry for the inconvenience! I’ll send you a friend request ( which I just realized that I haven’t done last time) in 2020.😥
                      Please don’t worry for me anymore and am really happy for your cooperation and glad , blessed to meet you!!


                    2. Its no problem if you are unable to add me cause due to some personal problem I Will be a bit busy these days. I’ll join later I’ll inform you then . and thanks for the cooperation and sorry for the trouble.😓😊


  9. Hahaha I like how you called Sir Nick “the biggest drama queen ever”…because it’s so true! 😂 And wow, Granian Winged Horse? I didn’t even know that was one of the possibilities! (I’m a hyena, which irks me more than a little lol)

    Terrific answers btw! I like how you went kinda unconventional with most of them; like, it’s the first time I’ve ever seen anyone choose Beater as a Quidditch position. 😉


    1. Hahaha me neither! But it sure felt nice 😛
      Hyenas are super cool – I just don’t like them because they scarred me for life in The Lion King hahaha But otherwise they sound super badass in real life. No one messes with hyenas!
      Thank you so much ^^ Hahaha I don’t know, I just feel like whenever I play sports I end up in a position that will most likely end up causing a lot of hurt and trouble LOL It’s not even on purpose, I am simply clumsy and thus sometimes violent in the field ^^’
      I’ve also played some baseball and enjoyed it so much, I thought Beater would probably be as close to it as I could get 🙂 Seeker is all right too but I’m not very patient hahaha

      1. lol same, as soon as I saw “hyena” on the screen, I got flashes of my childhood of how hyenas were the villains in Lion King. 😂 I’ve heard though they can be raised to be affectionate like dogs though.

        Ohhh having played baseball would totally make sense. And same, I have no patience for seeking, and my eyesight is horrible lol.


        1. Aaaw I’d love to see that! I’ve heard they can be really aggressive and the females are basically the bigshots who rule over the whole group – how cool is that??

          Same! I’m as blind as a bat and would probably get dizzy from trying to follow the snitch around (then again, I would probably suck at Quidditch altogether because I’m afraid of heights – but let’s pretend I’m not for the sake of this tag 😛 )

          Liked by 1 person

          1. Ah that’s very cool! Btw I think there’s a Youtube video about a guy who trains hyenas to be like dogs; they don’t bite or attack at all, which is sweet. 😉

            Haha I’ve always said I want to fly, but I guess fear of heights never really came to mind – it’s a valid fear to have!


            1. Oh that looks so cool! I mean, technically you can probably train any wild animal to become domestic, though you might lose an arm or leg in the process…..

              I love watching videos about families with exotic pets (though it depends if the animal is being well taken care of and there’s a reason they’ve been adopted, of course)
              Like there’s these two Russian (?) families, one has a bear and the one has a puma I think. Both behave like any cat/dog would and it’s heartwarming to watch, though I also feel a bit nervous lol I’m just always expecting them to jump at their owners and bite their heads off ._. Anxietyyyy

              I have tons of dreams where I’m flying over pieces of land and forests and for some reason never felt scared, just this awesome feeling of freedom. Weird! xD

              1. Oh yes, it’s rather endearing to watch exotic animals being domesticated, but I HAVE heard instances of where they snap out of nowhere. There was this lady’s chimp who lived with her, and it tore up her friend’s face when she visited I think; horrifying to think about what will make some of the more dangerous animals fly off the handle haha. 😛
