I saw this on Life, Love and Read’s blog way back in May and I’m eventually getting round to doing it! The You’re not good enough tag was created by ReadLikeWildfire and Beccathebookreviewer and means you have to write 30 character names on a piece of paper and put them in a cup/jar. Then you choose 2 pieces of paper for every question. You then choose which character best fits the question and which one “is not good enough”.
Life, Love and Read did her tag about A Court of Thorns and Roses series, but I haven’t read that so I’ve decided to choose Harry Potter instead.
You only have one more spot in your Spelling B team, who would you pick to complete your team?
The potential spelling champions are Hermione and Sirius. As smart as we know Sirius was in school, I do think spelling ability comes to those who read (it’s my natural talent…) and so I think Hermione would be the better candidate for winning a spelling competition. Plus Sirius would probably cheat and then we’d get disqualified.
Both characters want to kill you, which one would you kill first so you have a better chance of surviving?
I’m taking my chances against either Dobby or Mad Eye Moody. I’m not sure how powerful house elf magic is, so I’d probably have to kill Dobby (*sobs*) and battle Mad Eye, although he is one of the most powerful wizards in the series so I’d still stand little chance.
You’re on a hen/stag party and you’re down to these two characters, which one do you trust to organise your evening?
My candidates are Lucius and Arthur – great match! While I think Lucius probably knows some interesting dark bars we could get cheap drinks, Arthur is just too cute and I feel like he’d plan something really sweet so I’d give the job to Arthur. Lucius could be the drinks guy.
You’ve been chosen for the Hunger Games, who would most likely volunteer in your place?
My volunteer is either Molly or Percy. While I think Percy would have some great skills, and potentially the intelligence to outwit other tributes, I think Molly is much more likely to actually volunteer. She’s such a mum I couldn’t imagine anyone more likely to do so.
You’re stranded on an island. Which character would you sacrifice to engage in cannibalism?
It would either be Harry or Luna. Although I love Luna, I don’t know how much help she would be in this situation, whereas I think that Harry would come up with some ideas to get us off the island. Therefore I’m gonna have to sacrifice lovely Luna. This is a hard one though, because I think if it was the kind of situation where there was no hope, Luna would at least be entertaining.
You’re the next DC/Marvel superhero (with your own TV show of course), who is your sidekick?
It’s either Wormtail or Neville, and I could definitely see a sidekick Wormtail stabbing me in the back and trying to become the new superhero himself. I think Neville would go along with whatever ideas I had and he’s so loyal so of course it’s Neville.
You’re a manager of an Avocado admiring company, who would you fire for lack of communication skills?
My choices are McGonagall or Umbridge, and while Umbridge probably likes to think she has good communication skills she has truly awful people skills. McGonagall gets to the point straight away and I think she could convince anyone to admire avocados so of course she gets to keep her job.
You’ve just finished a book in which your favourite character dies, which character is most likely to comfort you?
It’s either George or Snape so I will have to go with George. He’s the most caring of the twins and I think would understand and try to cheer me up with some Weasley’s Wizard Weezes. Snape wouldn’t understand why I was crying over a book character and would probably try to give me a detention or something…
Ugh, it’s high school. Who would most likely be part of the popular clique?
The popular guy is either Slughorn or Dudley. I feel like Dudley was a bit of a dick through the series precisely because he wasn’t popular, and I always thought was probably bullied at school. Slughorn, on the other hand, is all about the popular, so he’d definitely be part of that clique, although I think it would be through his determination not because he himself was actually popular.
The day has arrived; you’re finally a year older! Who would have the nerve to forget your birthday?
My choices are either James Potter sr or Bill W. We don’t get a lot of information about Bill’s character in the series, but I do think James would be likely to forget while he was planning his next adventure or prank. I think he’d remember a few days later though and throw a huge party just so he had a chance to steal food!
You’ve just found an upcoming booktube star? Who would most likely be?
My possible upcoming booktube stars are…. Fred and Draco. I can’t imagine either of them caring about books enough to make a BookTube channel, but I think Fred would love the attention and have something where he talks about comedy books. Draco would be too busy brooding to review books for fun!
Sleepover time! Unfortunately you can only invite one person, who would you invite?
My choice is Tonks or Voldemort. This is not a difficult choice! As much as I’d love to see Voldy in his Primark pj’s, I think Tonks would be a great fellow ‘Puff for midnight snacks and horror movies.
Bam, you’re pregnant. Who’s the father/mother?
My possible co-parents are either Vernon or Ron. As much as I would worry about having only Ron for support when looking after kids, Vernon wasn’t exactly a great dad to Dudley. I wouldn’t want a spoilt kid who had a hatred for magic, so Ron it is.
You’ve just written a super important text. Who would ‘see’ it, but not reply?
Out of Hagrid and Dumbledore I could imagine Hagrid seeing my text but being halfway through cooking some rock cakes and forgetting to reply. I think Dumbledore would know it was important and text straight back. Plus he’d be more likely to know how to work a smartphone.
You’ve just woken up and it’s time for breakfast. Your mum’s been replaced by..who?!
Lupin or Ginny? I think Lupin would be great at making breakfast for some reason, and I’d love to have a chat at the breakfast table with him. Ginny would be too energetic for an early morning chat.
