Tag: You’re Not Good Enough! (Harry Potter Edition)

Thanks to Bibi for tagging me in this one! In the interest of full disclosure, it’s been eleven years since I picked up a Harry Potter book. I tried my best, though.


RULES:

  • Write 30 character names on pieces of paper. (You can use the character list from the bottom of the post or choose your own.)
  • Put them in a jar/mug/cup.
  • Randomly choose two pieces of paper for every question. In each of the 15 questions, you have to decide which of the two characters fits the question and which one is not good enough.

Instead of writing down all the names, I followed Bibi’s lead and put them into a randomizer! Then I just went in the order they showed up in, so the first two for the first question followed by the next two for the second question, and so on.


1. YOU ONLY HAVE ONE MORE SPOT ON YOUR SPELLING BEE TEAM. WHO DO YOU PICK TO COMPLETE YOUR TEAM?

Cedric Diggory vs. Hagrid

I have a feeling that Cedric would be a more appropriate addition to my team. After all, Hagrid tried, but he didn’t even spell “Happy Birthday” right.

2. BOTH CHARACTERS WANT TO KILL YOU. WHICH ONE WOULD YOU KILL FIRST SO YOU HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF SURVIVING?

Madam Hooch vs. Hedwig

I mean… I’m not going to kill Hedwig, so I guess I have to go with Madam Hooch.

3. YOU’RE ON THE BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE AND YOU’RE DOWN TO THESE TWO CHARACTERS. WHICH ONE ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE YOUR ROSE TO?

Luna Lovegood vs. Ron Weasley

Luna gets my rose, hands down. I love her.

4. YOU’VE BEEN CHOSEN FOR THE HUNGER GAMES. WHO WOULD MOST LIKELY VOLUNTEER IN YOUR PLACE?

Remus Lupin vs. George Weasley

I feel like Lupin is more likely to volunteer than George.

5. YOU’RE STRANDED ON AN ISLAND WITH AN ACTIVE VOLCANO. WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU THROW INTO A VOLCANO AS A SACRIFICE?

Hermione vs. Goyle

I didn’t even have to think about this one for half a second. Goyle.

6. YOU’RE THE NEXT DC/MARVEL SUPERHERO (WITH YOUR OWN T.V. SHOW, OF COURSE). WHO IS YOUR SIDEKICK?

Moaning Myrtle vs. Snape

Oh jeez. I don’t really want either one of these characters as my sidekick. I guess, for the sake of the prompt… I’ll go with Snape? He’s kind of terrible, but he’s less terrible than Moaning Myrtle.

7. YOU’RE A MANAGER OF AN AVOCADO ADMIRING COMPANY. WHO WOULD YOU FIRE FOR LACK OF COMMUNICATION SKILLS?

Malfoy vs. Sirius Black

I feel like Malfoy would be too busy sneering and rolling his eyes to get much communication done. And who could fire Sirius? Not me.

8. YOU’VE JUST FINISHED A BOOK IN WHICH YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER DIES. WHICH CHARACTER IS MOST LIKELY TO COMFORT YOU?

Filch vs. Umbridge

Neither of them?

9. UGH, IT’S HIGH SCHOOL. WHO WOULD MOST LIKELY BE PART OF THE POPULAR CLIQUE?

Dudley vs. Cho Chang

I’m going to say Cho Chang. I just don’t see Dudley being remotely popular.

10. THE DAY HAS ARRIVED – YOU’RE FINALLY A YEAR OLDER! WHO WOULD HAVE THE NERVE TO FORGET YOUR BIRTHDAY?

Dumbledore vs. Bellatrix Lestrange

Bellatrix is definitely forgetting my birthday.

11. YOU’VE JUST FOUND AN UPCOMING BOOKTUBE STAR! WHO WOULD IT MOST LIKELY BE?

McGonagall vs. Fred Weasley

McGonagall is definitely a booktube star. No question in my mind.

12. SLEEPOVER TIME! UNFORTUNATELY, YOU CAN ONLY INVITE ONE PERSON. WHO WOULD YOU INVITE?

Viktor vs. Molly Weasley

I would much rather have a sleepover with Molly Weasley. Plus, I’m sure she could use some time away from all those boys.

13. BAM, YOU’RE PREGNANT. WHO IS THE FATHER/MOTHER?

Voldemort vs. Percy Weasley

Oh GOD, I hope it’s not Voldemort. Not that I particularly want to have a child with Percy, but he’s infinitely better than Voldemort.

14. YOU’VE JUST WRITTEN A SUPER IMPORTANT TEXT. WHO WOULD SEE IT, BUT NOT REPLY?

Ginny vs. Neville Longbottom

Hmm, I don’t think that either one of them would intentionally not reply, but I can see Neville being scatterbrained enough to forget.

15. YOU’VE JUST WOKEN UP AND IT’S TIME FOR BREAKFAST. YOUR MUM’S BEEN REPLACED BY… WHO?!

Parvati Patil vs. Fleur Delacour

Oh, I don’t know. Fleur, I guess.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I loved when I was younger

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! Today’s theme is a throwback freebie, and I thought I’d go with ten books I loved when I was younger.  Now, keep in mind that I haven’t read any of these books in a good decade (at least!) and my now much-more-critical eye might be less kind. But when I was an awkward child, I adored these ten books.

Trickster’s Queen: The second in the series, but I liked it the best.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: Third in the series, but my all-time favorite.
The Outsiders: One of those books I was forced to read in school and actually loved.

Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist: I was convinced that I could have a great adventure with the love of my life if I could just move to a big city.
The Truth About Forever: I honestly do not remember what this book is about, but I remember that I absolutely adored it when I was fourteen years old.
Sloppy Firsts: I remember being paranoid that my mom would find this book and think I was reading porn.
A Great and Terrible Beauty: A recommendation from my best friend that started my life-long obsession with Libba Bray.

⭐ The Year My Life Went Down the Loo: My local bookstore had a great YA section when I was younger, and I’m pretty sure I only picked this one because it had a funny title.
When Lightning Strikes: I would likely be a little disturbed if I read this now, but back in the day, Jess and Rob were my OTP.
Uglies: One of my first tastes of dystopia, and I loved it.
