Harry Potter Moment of the Week [20] - Trelawney vs. Firenze

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.

Trelawney vs. Firenze

This might just be one of the hardest  HPMotW topics that I've had to face yet. In the books, I basically liked them the same. Trelawney seemed like a big old fraud and Firenze was a bit of a space-cadet. On the other hand, Trelawney is a nutty character that was fun to see and Firenze was exotic as a centaur teacher. Trelawney got pity out of me when the old toad lost her the job and Firenze got my pity with the other centaurs attacking him and kicking him out of his home. So if we are going based on the books, it's a tie. However in the movie, she was portrayed by Emma Thompson whom I adore so she got a little more love out of me merely for that. Her character on screen was so much fun.


  1. Hmm, for some reason I don't rememeber them in the moveis.

  2. Awwww I know how you feel. It took me awhile to decide between them, but Trelawney won out in the end! :)

  3. This IS a touch decision, Jaclyn. I asked me kids - they picked Firenze because "he's cool, really chill, a good astronomy teacher, he's good at divination because he's a centaur, and because he's a centaur!" Trelawney is "just mildly insane." LOL


I love comments and read every one of them! Since they are an award in themselves, this is an award-free blog. Thank you though for the consideration!
