Edit: This is has been slightly altered to reflect my results from Pottermore :) Username: AsphodelStone99

  • Wand:
    • Wood: Willow.
    • Length: 11 inches.
    • Flexibility: Slightly Yielding.
    • Core: Phoenix Feather.
    • Light & thin.
    • Prone to whimsy, mischievous, a mind of it's own.
  • Patronus:
    • I have thought long and hard about this. I love all animals and it is very difficult to pinpoint one that represents me the most. But if I had to decide, I think it would be a Cheetah. I have always been fascinated by their grace and speed. And the females are quite solitary, much like myself.
  • House:
    • While I used to think I would be a guaranteed Ravenclaw, Pottermore has placed me in Hufflepuff. After reading the extensive background info on the House that was missing from much of the books, I have found that Hufflepuff really does fit me!:
      • The common room sounds very like a hobbit house. "An earthy passage, honey-colored wood and patchwork quilts. A colorful profusion of plants and flowers. And small, round windows level with the ground."
      • "often underestimated, because it lives quietly until attacked."
      • "Hufflepuff is certainly the least boastful house, but we’ve produced just as many brilliant witches and wizards as any other."
      • "Hufflepuffs are trustworthy and loyal. We don’t shoot our mouths off, but cross us at your peril; like our emblem, the badger, we will protect ourselves, our friends and our families against all-comers. Nobody intimidates us."
      • "However, it’s true that Hufflepuff is a bit lacking in one area. We’ve produced the fewest Dark wizards of any house in this school."
      • "...the friendliest, most decent and most tenacious house of them all."
  • Favorite core classes:
    • Potions.
    • Herbology.
  • Elective classes:
    • Care of Magical Creatures.
    • Study of Ancient Runes.
  • Quidditch position:
    • Beater. Sounds like a fun way to get out my aggression :).
  • Pet:
    • Black cat.
  • Animagus:
    • An albatross.
  • Amortentia:
    • Salty sea spray.
    • Fresh waffle cone.
    • Old books.
  • Horcruxes (Were I ever desperate enough to make them):
    • My mom's antique lapis lazuli teardrop pendant that I wear everywhere.
    • The knit blanket I've had since I was a baby.

user picture avaleigh1: This such a great list topic. Do you mind if I copy the topic? I think I'd be in Ravenclaw too for the same reasons. jan 9 2011
user picture Bliss: I've seen variants of this list all over the site so I borrowed the idea myself! It is great though :)
user picture Jennifer: I really like this list, how did you determine your wand? feb 2 2011
user picture Bliss: Um, I just made it up based on what I like! Haha feb 5 2011
user picture Harley: Most people pick randomly but there is some known wandlore: The wand wood usually corresponds to when you are born on the celtic tree calender (eg. Holly is my wood, which corresponds to birthdays July 8th to Aug 4th). The length corresponds to height, they vary from 7" (Umbridge) to 16" (Hagrid). And finally the wand cores: phoenix feather (Harry & Voldemort's wands), is very powerful, veela hair (Fleur Delacour) is temperamental. Traits for dragon heartstring (Hermione, Viktor Krum, Bellatrix Lestrange & Lucius Malfoy) and unicorn hair (Ron, Cedric Diggory, Neville Longbottom, Draco Malfoy & Charlie Weasley) are unknown. And of course thestral hair is only known to occupy the elder wand. mar 4 2011
user picture Bliss: Oh, I know there's true wandlore but I really just wanted to make up my own dream wand! I was actually at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter not too long ago and I was purchasing a wand at Ollivanders and the wandmaker there told me all about celtic tree calendar. But as it just so happens, my particular birth date didn't have a corresponding wand wood. I was smack dab between two different woods. So I just said to hell with it and made up my own! As for the length, I am fairly short. Maybe not quite as short as Umbridge but I think I will have to shorten my wand a little!
user picture Harley: Oh, December 23rd if I'm not mistaken? the day before my mother's :) Elder is usually extended to the 23rd on most calenders, but Mistletoe is the tree of the day after the Winter Solstice (Aprox. December 23)
user picture Jennifer: That's actually super cool, thanks so much for the information.
user picture Harley: okay, I've just spent the last.. ages, trying to match up heights to wand lengths, this is the best I could do.. 7"-5'0, 8"-5'2, 9"-5'4, etc, 10"-5'6, etc.
user picture Sasha: This is so great! I love seeing what people come up with when it comes to these Harry Potter things. feb 4 2011
user picture Bliss: Me too, that's why I made one :) feb 5 2011
user picture Jaina Bee: Fantastic. feb 6 2011
user picture Harley: What would be your elective classes, boggart and reflection in the Mirror of Erised be? :) mar 4 2011
user picture Bliss: Still working on those! :) It's hard to think of what scares me the most and makes me the happiest!
user picture all about alice: i love your list! harry potter is awesome. mar 25 2011
user picture bobilani: I love this! I'll have to ponder this for a while and make one of my own...how fun! :) mar 28 2011
