HP meme

I am bored, so I meme:

Your House? Gryffindor

Favourite book? Prisoner of Azkaban.

Favourite teacher? Professor Lupin, hands down.

Favourite class? Defense Against the Dark Arts (Potions sounds ljust like Chemistry, which I hated!)

Favourite spell? Obliviate. Wouldn’t that be handy?

Favourite ship? I guess Remus/Sirius, although I don’t really read it

Favourite Character? Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, Teddy Lupin

Character you think is the best written? Well, Sirius is the most intriguing.

Character you never expected to like in the end? Kreacher and Dobby. I really hated the house elves before the final book. Well, I can't recall what I thought of Dobby in the books anymore but I hated him in the films.

Character you’re most like? Gah, Hermione, I guess. I always loved school.

Character you want to be like? I think Neville, an ordinary fellow who rises to the occasion but doesn’t have to save the day, every day.

Character you’d most want to spend a day with? Remus Lupin

Character you’d shag in a heartbeat? Sirius Black

Top five favourite scenes in the entire series?
Harry conjuring his first patronus and thinking he’s seeing his father; Hagrid first appearing and telling Harry he’s a wizard; Anything involving Harry getting glimpses of his parents in the Mirror of Erised or old photos; Sirius reveals he is good and asks Harry to come to live with him. (I am STILL so bitter that that never happened!); Lily, James, Sirius and Remus accompanying Harry to the showdown with Voldemort

First generation (MWPP) or second (trio)? Marauders.

Death Eaters, the Order, or Dumbledore’s Army? Oh, Dumbledore’s Army, I guess.

What would your Patronus be? I’d want it to be a leopard or lion

What would your Animagus form be? Definitely a cat. A biggish one would be nice!

If you could live anywhere in the WW, where would it be? I really can’t say. Somewhere in a city, probably. I’d enjoy visiting the muggles and then sneaking around the corner into the magical realm only I could see, like 12 Grimmauld Place.

If you could have any career in the WW, what would it be? I’d work for the newspaper or write a good biography of Dumbledore.

And ultimately…were you happy with Deathly Hallows? Yes, I was. I think she wrapped it up very well, apart from the epilogue.

Also, I keep seeing ads for that movie "Stardust." A flyer for it was even in my HP box from Amazon! It looks like complete caca, yes? I can't believe what big names agreed to be in it!

wherein I rant like a true pissed off comic fan
As a Stardust fan, I can say with complete and utter trust that the movie sucks ... and I haven't seen more than a few minutes worth of footage. It's a shame, really, because the novel - and especially the illustrated novel, which is gorgeous - is rather pretty. It's supposed to be a Victorian fairy tale, mostly harmless, but above all things, subtle and I'm not seeing any of that in the ads.

Why someone decided it was a good idea to make a movie out of the books, I don't know. The casting is horrible - Claire Danes not only doesn't look anything like the girl on my icon, she just can't act out of a water paperbag without doing the trembling chin thing. I have no idea what Robert de Niro is doing or why they've played up his character so much. Michelle Pfieffer ... it pains me, but she's ruining the part and there are some things that look amazing on an illustration but just won't work on a movie (cf. a charriot pulled by goats).


*takes breath*

So, yep. Stardust? Bad, bad idea.

Hope you're not a Claire Danes fan. Got a bit carried away on the previous comment.

Hee, I'm really not a fan of hers! I liked her a lot in My So-Called Life and also in Romeo + Juliet. I even liked her in Terminator 3. BUT ... the way she and Billy Crudup hooked up when Mary Louise Parker was pregnant was just so tacky, it totally turned me against her and now I really can't stand the sight of her. She, Jude Law & Tom Cruise should just make movies together so I can avoid them all in one go!

Oh wow, I haven't read Neil Gaiman but he's highly spoken of, so this being an adaptation of something of his just looks ... godawful. :-/ Some things just don't translate, especially most fantasy novels (apart from Harry Potter & LOTR).
