Harry Potter Moment of the Week [30]

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.

   If you could be a character for a day, who would you be?

Like most of these topics, this one was hard for me to drill down to one. What would it be like to live in the wonder that's Luna's mind? She looks at everything so blasé, nothing can really get her down. She treats her friends as jewels to be treasured. 

There's something great about all the main characters that would make it fun to be them for a day so I could do this for hours. 

I finally decided on Ginny Weasley.

Here's my reasoning:

1. She's a red-head
2. She plays/loves Quidditch
3. She is funny
4. She is in the Weasley family - arguably the best family in literature
5. She's small, but packs a punch
6. She's smart and confident
7. She gets to let fly the bat-bogey hexes (MAN I WOULD LOVE to give a few people I know a good one-two with a bat-bogey)
8. She bagged The Chosen One as her man
9. She was a valuable member of the DA
10. She had a pet pygmy puff
11. She's best friends with Hermione, Luna, and Neville

Who would you be if you were a character for a day?


  1. Noooo, it had to be Luna. I am obsessed with all things Luna!

  2. I adore Luna. She's actually my favorite character. The only reason I didn't go with her is because she's not with all those other characters I love as often. If I was one of them for a day, I'd want to be a Gryffindor so I could have more time with the rest of the crew :D

  3. GINNY! She was *one* of my picks too :D She's brilliant, both incredibly gifted and feisty, how could you beat that?! And like you said, she's a Weasley, which is like THE best family in the world! I would love to be a part of that! AND she ends up with The Boy Who Lived ♥ Amazing choice Jaclyn!!

    Awesome pick! I love book Ginny so much, she's such a strong, sassy, independent woman, and I hate how they messed her up in the movies. I'd totally be up to being her for a day.

  5. She was a runner up for me! I wish she had been given more space in the books for us to get to know her better! I feel like she would have been a valuable asset in the search for Horcruxes but everyone wanted to keep her 'safe'. But solid reasoning! I went with Hermione for my HP MOTW.

  6. Ginny is a good choice :) She is fun character..I would want to be Hermione though for her time turner LOL

  7. Hahaha! One of your picks. It's so hard to just drill down to one with these questions, right? Thank you so much for stopping by :D

  8. I feel exactly the same way. Book Ginny rocks! Having all those brothers sure taught her a thing or two about sticking up for herself.

  9. Ginny's a great choice. I would want to be Fred or George in the *earlier* books. They seemed to always be having the most fun in Hogwarts and got away with most of it...

  10. I definitely would have loved seeing her help them search for the Horcruxes. Then the crew wouldn't have been so down all the time and really poor Hermione with no female interaction during that long period of time. I get why they wanted her safe too though. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  11. Oh yes! That time turner. Man, the things I could accomplish with that. Sadly, they destroyed them all after that year. I would've enjoyed seeing it used more often.

  12. hehehe :D I found a lot of reasons for her. Luna would've been amazing too though!

  13. *big grin* Awesome choice, Jaclyn. I love all your reasons too. :)

  14. I loved the 8th point of your reasoning... lol ;)

  15. I especially love #7 and #10 on your list! Having a knack for the Bat-Bogey hex would definitely be a talent I'd really, really like to have, lol. Great pick! :D


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!
