"Wit beyond measure is our greatest treasure."
I was born in America, though my parents wanted me to attend Hogwarts. For some reason, my parents kept knowledge of the Wizarding World from me until a few months before I went to Hogwarts. When I got there, I was sorted into Ravenclaw. My life's dream is to be a Hogwarts Professor, Author, or Magizoologist, because I love learning, books, and amimals.
Note: I do not do roleplays, sorry!
Merlin Daegal Vanir Adair Trelawney
I'm a Ravenclaw through and through. The Sorting Hat sat on my head for only thirty seconds before declaring me a Ravenclaw.
Ravenclaw House, Trelawney Family, Hogwarts Friends
Intelligent, Bookish, Logical, Witty, Creative, Compassionate, Nerdy, Ravenclawesome
I have always been cautious and careful, preferring to read books than to meet new people. However, when I make a new friend (a rare occurance) we usually have lots of similarities.
I can tell if someone is lying, but I cannot read their minds
Horned Serpent is the rough equivalent of Ravenclaw and favors scholars. Plus that's what I got on Pottermore.
Secondary House (The House I would be in if not in Ravenclaw):
English Oak, Unicorn Hair, 14 1/2 inches, Hard Flexibility
Mr. Ollivander tried several wands for me, including Willow, Dragon Heartstring, and Elm, Unicorn Hair, both of which came close before my wand chose me. I share the same wood as Hagrid and supposedly my namesake.
(Note: I am actually reconsidering if English Oak is the right wand core for me. Let me know if you have any ideas!)
I was pleased to discover that my Patronus was this curious and intelligent creature.
I was always confused about my blood status and still am, but for now this is what I believe to be.
1 Cat, 1 Owl
An orange and white fluffy tabby cat called Seamus and a barn owl called Luna.
Failing everything in school
The very worst. I can also have a boggart of beloved animals dying.
Books, Autumn, Wind, Rain
All combined equals the perfect day.
Mirror of Erised:
N/A (I've never looked)
I am still learning about Animagi and am unsure if I wish to become one.
I like to watch Quidditch, but not play it. If I had to play Quidditch, and I do occasionally, I would play Seeker.
I also support the Montrose Magpies and the Kenmare Kestrels.
Care of Magical Creatures
I am also adept at Charms and Herbology.
Mainly because I am squeamish about all the animal parts used.
Favorite Wizarding Candy:
Favorite Wizard Shop:
Flourish & Blotts
Luna Lovegood, Hermione Granger, Percy Weasley, Isolt Sayre, Newt Scamander, Professor McGonagall, The Grey Lady, Rowena Ravenclaw, Severus Snape, and Scorpius Malfoy
Yes, I know, I have a lot.
Favorite Harry Potter Books:
Sorcerer's Stone, Prisoner of Azkaban, and Order of the Phoenix
I just can't choose!
Least Favorite Character:
Yes, I know, most people absolutely LOVE him, but I don't.
Favorite Magical Creatures:
Phoenix, Mooncalf, Occamy, Jobberknoll
Diadem of Ravenclaw
Adjectives That Describe Me:
Logical, Discerning, Cautious, Intelligent, Witty
Cats, Books, Nature, Animals, the Night Sky, Learning, and Harry Potter
Bullies, Bad Language, Unproper Grammar, Romance, Rule Breaking, Textspeak, and Voldemort being prenounced with the hard 't'
The Sorting Hat said this about me: "Hmm, clearly Ravenclaw, with a hint of Slytherin. RAVENCLAW!"
I am a distant descendant of Rowena Ravenclaw through my Mother's side, of which I am very proud.
When I got to Hogwarts, I was disappointed that Care of Magical Creatures wasn't available to 1st years. When I finally got to take Care of Magical Creatures, it became my best and favorite subject, as well as Charms.
While at Hogwarts I love to ride on a winged horse, skimming over the lake and forest. I also love to explore the mountains and hills near Hogwarts.
I am a partial Legilimens. I cannot read people's thoughts and memories, but I can tell if people are lying. A talent I only recently discovered.
I have one cat, an orange and white fluffy tabby, who usually sleeps on my bed in the Ravenclaw Boy's Dormitory as well as an owl. I love cats and books.
My favorite Muggle books are:
Harry Potter (obviously), by J.K. Rowling
Warriors, by Erin Hunter
Percy Jackson, by Rick Riordan
Wings of Fire, by Tui T. Sutherland
How to Train Your Dragon, by Cressida Cowell
Explorer Academy, by Trudi Trueit
The Inheritance Cycle, by Christopher Paolini
The Land of Stories, by Chris Colfer
Enola Holmes, by Nancy Springer
"Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality."
-The Cheshire Cat
My favorite Magical books are Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi, and The Monster Book of Monsters.
I'm a true Ravenclaw and am very proud of my House. I support S.P.E.W.
Some of my favorite Muggle movies and shows are Star Wars (all of them), Enola Holmes, Fantastic Beasts, Crimes of Grindelwald, Brave, Frozen II, How to Train Your Dragon (all 3), Peter Rabbit, Tangled, Tangled, BBC's Merlin, and Beauty and the Beast (live action).
I am a VERY LOYAL AND DEVOTED Harry Potter fan.
Some of my favorite Harry Potter quotes:
"Wit beyond measure is our greatest treasure." -Rowena Ravenclaw
"Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhasutible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it." -Albus Dumbledore
"We've all got light and dark inside us. What matters most is the part we choose to act on. That's who we truly are." -Sirius Black
"Always." -Severus Snape
"Ah, well, people can be a bit stupid abou' their pets." -Hagrid
"Because that's what Hermione does. When in doubt, go to the library!" -Ron Weasley
