Noční pták - Harry Potter tag

Harry Potter tag

I just finished the whole Harry Potter (HP) book series again. When I was looking various HP stuff on the internet, I came across this game. Although I usually don not participate in this kind of pastime, I couldn’t resist. Probably because I wanted to stay in the HP world little bit longer. There are several versions of the HP tag on the internet. I used the list from this video, which merges three different sets of questions. Let’s get on with it!

  1. Which Harry Potter book is your favorite?

    I love all the books. Yes, even the Goblet of fire. First book that came to my mind was the Prisoner of Azkaban. I liked the Marauders and the Marauders Map. On the other hand, The Order of the Phoenix is also fabulous. I enjoyed the creation Dumbledore’s Army and Dolores Umbridge. The latter from the reader’s perspective, of course. I hate that horrible, awful, ugly, dreadful, evil, wicked, hag. I also enjoyed reading of The Half-Blood Prince. The whole old potions book idea is brilliant. I liked how Hermione wasn’t speaking to Ron. But again, If I had to choose, it would be the Prisoner of Azkaban.

  2. Which Harry Potter book is your least favorite?

    This is easy. It’s the Goblet of fire. Some bits, like You-Know-Who’s return, or Harry trapped on the marble staircase, are brilliant. But the book seems worse than the others.

  3. Which Harry Potter film is your favorite?

    Again, the Prisoner of Azkaban. I like the motif of the pendulum permeating the whole movie. I must admit, that I prefer HP books to the movies. There are so many side plots in the main story, that movies are supersaturated most of the time. Even so, many of important side plots are missing in the films. I myself miss the S. P. E. W.

  4. Which Harry Potter film is your least favorite?

    I would have to see all the movies again for the proper answer, but let’s say second part of The Deathly Hallows. There is too much of fighting in it.

  5. Which Harry Potter quote is your favorite?

    I like the bit in The Half-Blood Prince where Ron says, “I love you, Hermione.” I also very often think about what Sirius said: “If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals.” In my opinion, this is a great true.

  6. Which Weasley is your favorite?

    Fred. No, I was only joking. It´s George.

  7. Which female character is your favorite?

    Luna Lovegood. I like how non-conform she is. She is not giving a damn what anyone is thinking about her. I like the clothes she is wearing, because no one in his right mind would dress like that. I especially like her earrings from radishes and butterbeer cork necklace.

  8. Which villain is your favorite?

    Bellatrix Lestrange. I like how mad, evil and arrogant she is.

  9. Which male character is your favorite?

    Sirius Black, because he is brave, clever and cunning. I also like Severus Snape, because of his subtlety and his bitter sarcastic comments. (“Fascinating though your social life undoubtedly is, Miss Granger, I must ask you not to discuss it in my class.”). I admire like his lifelong love for Lilly Evans.

  10. Favorite Hogwarts Professor?

    Sybill Trelawney. She is like Luna. I like how geeky she is. Her habit of drinking the cooking sherry is funny.

  11. Wash Snape’s hair or spend a day listening to Lockhart rant about himself?

    Better to listen to Lockhart, even if it was suffering.

  12. Duel against an elated Bellatrix or an angry Molly?

    Bellatrix will be probably safer.

  13. Travel to Hogwarts via Hogwarts Express or Flying Car?

    Hogwarts Express. I travel by train very often. On the line from my hometown to Prague, there is also a food trolley. However, they don’t have Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans, Cauldron Cakes, Chocolate Frogs, Drooble’s Best Blowing Gum, Jelly Slugs, Liquorice wands, nor Pumpkin Pasties.

  14. Kiss Voldemort or give Umbridge a Bubble Bath?

    I would give the bath to Dolores and try to drown her in it.

  15. Ride a Hippogriff or ride a Firebolt?

    I think that hippogriff is better. Looks more comfortable.

  16. Is there a character which you felt differently about in the movies vs. the books?

    You-Know-Who. In the books he was scary. In the movies, he was pathetic.

  17. Is there a movie you preferred instead of the book?

    No, there isn’t.

  18. Richard Harris or Michael Gambon as Dumbledore?

    Well, as I am not into movies, so I hardly noticed the change.

  19. Your top thing (person or event) which was not included in the movies that annoyed you the most.

    I already answered this one: S. P. E. W.

  20. If you could remake any of the Harry Potter films, which would it be?

    I’m not sure. As I wrote, I’m not into movies. I just think that The Prisoner of Azkaban is brilliant. I would not remake this one.

  21. Which Hogwarts House was your first gut feeling you’d be a part of?

    Slytherin, because it is dark and scary.

  22. Which Hogwarts House were you actually sorted into on Pottermore (or any other online-sorting quiz)?

    Slytherin.

  23. Which class would be your favorite?

    Charms. It seems like magical analogy to physics.

  24. Which spell do you think would be most useful to learn?

    Oculus Reparo, because I wear glasses a lot. Or Reparo in general. Who does not break something from time to time?

  25. Which character at Hogwarts would you instantly become best friends with?

    Luna Lovegood, I hope.

  26. If you could own one of the three Hallows, which one would it be?

    The invisible cloak is probably the best for me. I don’t like people, and I am often hiding from them, even without magic.

  27. Is there any aspect of the books you’d want to change?

    The Goblet of Fire is full of waffle. Lots of bits of the Trivizard tournament are pointless.

  28. Favourite Marauder?

    From human perspective: Sirius Black. Form reader’s perspective: Peter Pettigrew. I enjoyed the twist when his silver hand killed him.

  29. If you could bring one character back to life, which would it be?

    Obviously, Sirius Black or Dobby. The choice is hard. Both didn’t deserve to die. Sirius, however, probably would have wanted to die in the battle. So, I chose Dobby. There is, however, another exciting option: Voldemort. If he did not die, we should have more books.

  30. Hallows or Horcruxes?

    Hallows. Who wants to live forever?

  31. Which parts of the books/films made you cry?

    There was no such part. I am too old for crying.

  32. What would your Patronus be?

    According to Pottermore test it is a Field Mouse.

  33. If you could meet any member of the cast who would it be?

    Probably Emma Watson or Evanna Lynch, because they are both yogis like me.

  34. Have you played any of the video games?

    No, haven’t.

  35. If you were on the Quidditch Team, which position would you play?

    I don’t like Quidditch and sport in general.

  36. Were you happy with the ending?

    No. The story was too short for me.

  37. How much does HP mean to you?

    When HP came to Czech Republic, I didn’t like it. I was twenty-something and already a fan of Tolkien and Pratchett. I considered HP too childish. Yes, I admit such a horrible misunderstanding on my side. I read several books, some in Czech, some in English, but I did not really enjoy them. Then, when I was in my thirties, I read HP again. I became an instant fun. Today, HP books are one of my favorites.

  38. Do you think you could ride on a broom?

    I seriously doubt it, because I am very unsporty, geeky and bookish.

  39. What would you do if you had the Marauder’s Map?

    Sneaking during the night and discovering Hogwarts secrets.

  40. What spell would you make up and what would it do?

    Anemosio – spell for summoning wind, handy on a boat.

    Zajímavý, z filmů se mi taky nejvíc líbila trojka. A z knížek nevím… Trojku jedinou jsem četla anglicky – a to dokonce dřív než česky. Na většinu otázek bych jen těžko hledala odpověď, protože už je to dlouho, co jsem HP četla nebo viděla… Naposled (a vcelku nedávno) jsem viděla film „Fantastická zvířata a kde je najít“. A teď nedávno jsem začala číst Hunger Games.

    Brýle nosíš na blízko?

    (Omlouvám se za „tapetování“/spam, už je přece jenom celkem pozdě a tolik mi to nemyslí.)

    Jo, a brečela jsem u páté knihy (myslím).

    (Off-topic) Na letošním Jiráskově Hronově jsem viděla Morta v podání DS Lázně Toušeň – jsem si na tebe vzpomněla.

    (A jestli mě ještě něco napadne, tak už budu mlčet a nechám si to pro sebe.)

    [1] Jo, Prisoner of Azkaban je nejlepší. Co jsem to napsal, zkouknul jsem zpětně i všechny filmy. Jsou to spíš ilustrace ke knihám. Samostatně podle mě neobstojí. Psal to kdysi i Fuxoft. Prisoner of Azkaban je ale výjimka.

    O Hunger games zrovna taky uvažuju.

    Fantastická zvířata už mám na disku.

    Brýle mám dvoje, na blízko i na dálku. Nosím je jen občas, poněvadž vidím špatně i s nimi. Navíc, v dětství jsem viděl o dost hůř a měl jsem silnější, takže teď se mi zdá, že už to většinou nemá cenu.

    [2] Jasně. Já vím, že ty hry existují. Nejvíc by mě samozřejmě zajímaly Soudné sestry.
