Harry Potter Moment of the Week [43]


This is a meme hosted by Uncorked Thoughts.The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/ films/ J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! She is picking a topic within HP for us to focus on each week and then if anyone wants to take part feel free! All she asks is to link back to her blog :). There is now a full list of the topics to come here.

   Favorite Magical Pet


There are a lot of wonderful magical creatures in the Potterverse. Pets that our beloved characters owned include: Arnold the Pigmy Puff by Ginny (which I adore the thought of!), owls galore (Hedwig reigning supreme among them), a skeevy rat I'm sure Ron wished he never laid eyes on, Trevor (Longbottom's flighty toad), Figg's cats, Voldemort's super scary snake Nagini, Hermione's odd cat Crookshanks, Hagrid's brief ownership of a dragon, and many more cats, dogs, and the like. While there are many of them that would be amazing to own myself, I would want Fawkes far more than any other.



Fawkes is magical, loyal, and helps Dumbldore and Harry when they are in dire straits. He's immortal which is my kind of animal. Feeling the sting of loss from a loved pet wouldn't happen with him as he turns to ash and is reborn among them. His tears have healing powers and he's able to teleport wizards and carry large weight. His song is able to give listeners courage and help them remain calm. Yep, I'm fascinated by phoenixes and would absolutely want one as a pet.

Which magical pet is your favorite?

    Ugh I totally forgot about Fawkes, even though I'd love love to have a phoenix as a pet! That's be not only super cool but also pretty handy. I mean you'd be warm and healthy... :D Super awesome indeed ^^
    Pigmy Puffs are cute also :D

  3. I have to agree as Fawkes would be an amazing pet. I like that he would out live me. Losing a pet is one of the worst feelings ever. Plus they are pretty brave, the Basilisk he took on was 100 times his size. But as you said Loyalty brought him and his bravery took the basilisks main weapon.

  5. Fawkes is one of the most beautiful magical creatures in the series. It was awesome how he healed Harry in the Chamber of Secrets, but I think my favorite Fawkes moment was when he and Dumbledore escaped from Fudge and Umbridge in Order of the Phoenix- love that scene in the film! :D

  8. That's one of the reasons it's hard for me to get a pet. I really don't want to feel that sting. Yeah, beating that basilisk was mobad.

  9. I adore that part! I didn't even know he could work around the apparition blocks they had on the castle so it was really awesome when that happened :D

    There are so many great pets in this series! I love the idea of almost all of them, but Fawkes is a great pick! I mean it's the pet that will never die, that sounds beautiful. Phoenixes are really very convenient pets if you think about it. They have the power to do almost anything. :)

  13. Fawkes!! ♥ I have SUCH a soft spot for that Phoenix! His relationship with Dumbledore is definitely part of the reason, their bond warms my heart and thinking of his sad song with Dumbledore died makes me want to cry all over again. His magical abilities are fantastic as well :D Awesome pick ^^ sorry I'm late stopping by, I moved last month and ended up without internet at home for over 2 weeks O.O I'm only starting to catch up! Happy reading :)

  18. Eeeek! No internet! Fawkes is brilliant. I love that he was so close to Dumbledore that he would only come to someone's aid if they were loyal to him. That speaks volumes. That song also was so heartbreaking. Thanks for stopping by :D
