The Harry Potter (Would You Rather) Tag!

Saturday, 22 June 2013
Recently, I've been in a bit of a Harry Potter frenzy. Don't get me wrong, I've already read and loved the books and watched all the movies and everything. It's just, every year, I always go back to them at one point or another... and I've been doing so these past few days. I've already re-read one of the books and, in the last two days, watched all eight movies. So, it's safe to say, I'm one of the biggest Potterheads. ;) Anyway. Today, I came across the Harry Potter: Would You Rather Tag on Youtube (created by ryanohrama) and knew I just had to do it!

Would you rather go to prom with Harry, Draco or Ron?
No question for me on this one - Harry all the way! He's definitely my favourite out of these three options! Draco is just a big no-no and, even though, I'm sure Ron would be a good enough date, it's Harry I want on my arm. ;) He's just perfect and I'm sure I would be safe with him!

Would you rather be sorted into Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff or Slytherin?
Well, if you had asked me this a few years ago, my answer would have certainly been Gryffindor - no question about it. But, now, well... I wouldn't mind being in Ravenclaw (and this is no way affected by the fact I'm in Ravenclaw on Pottermore... :P). I'd HATE to be in Slytherin and, as much as I love my Hufflepuff besties, Zoe and Ruby, it just ain't the house for me. ;)
Would you rather explore the forbidden forest or the halls of Hogwarts?
Eeeeeeek! A hard one! As much as I'd love to say the forbidden forest, I'll have to go for the halls of Hogwarts. Wait, no! I'll be brave and go for the forbidden forest! *puffs up chest* I'll just make sure to take Hagrid with me! Maybe I'll get to see a Centaur or two! :D
Would you rather enroll in Potions, Charms, Divination or Defence Against The Dark Arts?
Oooooh... Can't I just take all of those classes?! No? Oh, alright then... *cries in corner* If I had to choose one, and I mean absolutely had to, I'd go for Defence Against The Dark Arts. I need to know some good spells if I run into Voldemort or a Deatheater after all! It's a shame that Care of Magical Creatures isn't up there though... I would certainly have picked that one!
Would you rather buy an owl, cat, rat or toad?
This one I can answer easily - an owl, of course! But not a snowy owl like Hedwig. Some other breed... I would never buy a rat - I'm scared of rats/mice! :3 - and toads are just... icky and, judging from Neville's experience, great escape artists. As for a cat? I'm more of a dog person, myself... Or, in this case, an owl person. ;)
Would you rather have in possession: the elder wand, resurrection stone, or the cloak of invisibility?
The cloak of invisibility! Just imagine the amount of conversations I could eavesdrop in. Or the pranks I could pull! Or the books I could take from the Restricted Section. The possibilities are endless!
Would you rather be tutored by Luna Lovegood or Hermione Granger?
As much as I adore Luna, she can be a bit of a goof - in the best possible way, of course. If I want to pass my OWLs, I'm going to need someone who'll really help me. So Hermione. :P
Would you rather, in the final battle, fight against Nagini (the snake) or Bellatrix?
Nagini. Bellatrix freaks me out like nothing else and I really hate that snake so I wouldn't mind chopping off it's head with Godric Gryffindor's sword - if I'm in Gryffindor that is. Otherwise, I'll have to be more inventive... Maybe cast an immobilisation spell? Then let someone else wield the sword who is from Gryffindor. See, I'm really thinking this through. ;)
Would you rather fight a basilisk or a dragon?
They're both huge and I'm sure I would stand no chance but... a basilisk. Dragon's are MASSIVE and can fly. At least I can take some tips from Harry on how to kill the snake. He's not really fought a dragon - so I'd have nothing to go on. Let's just hope that the basilisk doesn't bite me with one of it's poisonous fangs. Or kill me, y'know. :(
Would you rather be a part of the Malfoy family or Weasley family?
Is this meant to be a hard question?! The Weasley family, of course! I'd love to live with Fred and George - it'd be hilarious to watch their pranks in action! And Mrs Weasley's just adorable and can cook... And I'd have Ginny around the house so I wouldn't just have to deal with brothers. It be loads of fun! ;)
Would you rather have a butterbeer or pumpkin juice?
A butterbeer. Whenever I smell a pumpkin, I just gag. So I'm sure I'd do the same with pumpkin juice. So, I think I'll go for the butterbeer. With a side order of chocolate frogs and Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans, obviously.
Would you rather fly on a broomstick, Hagrid's motorbike or Buckbeak? *this is my own question, couldn't resist adding one in! :P
BUCKBEAK! I'd love to go a wee fly around Hogwarts on Buckbeak! xD
Would you rather have a conversation with Daniel Radcliffe or J.K. Rowling?
As much as I love Daniel Radcliffe for so perfectly capturing the character of Harry Potter, I'd love to have a wee cup of tea with J.K. Rowling. Actually, scrap the tea - I don't like tea. I'll bring along the butterbeer instead! I'd just love to ask her hundreds of questions about the books and if she would so kindly write a spin-off series involving Harry, Ginny, Ron and Hermione's children. That. Would. Just. Be. Amazing. *stares into space dreamily*
So there we go. I had SO much fun doing this tag! If you love Harry Potter, I definitely recommend doing this - you'll love it! If you do, feel free to leave a link and I will most happily stop by and fangirl with you. Or tweet me. Whatever. Also, feel free to use the question I added too! :P
Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo


  1. I LOVE THIS POST SO MUCH! I totally agree that the cloak of invisibility would be an amazing item to have in your possession, and I also agree that being part of the Weasley family would be so much fun!

    By the way, you've just persuaded me to re-read the books! I usually re-read the last few, but I haven't read Chamber of Secrets in soooo long! xD

    ps. you really like pottermore, don't you? I've noticed how many house points you have hehe. :D

  2. Whee awesome tag! A lot of my answers would probably be the same as yours are, since JK focused so much on Gryffindor's house, I just can't imagine being in any other! Fantastic tag, Rachel!

  3. I love this a lot! I agree with the classes! Why can't we just take all of them? I decided to do this tag, and it was so much. I am so glad you posted this.

  4. Sadly I've only seen a couple of the movies (I'm planning in the reading the books these holidays) but I really enjoyed this post. From my little knowledge of HP, Great Choices. I would love a Cloak of Invisibility.

  5. This is such a cute post! I'm definitely going to do one of my own and post it, it's adorable and I'm such a Harry Potter geek so it's perfect for me! Love love LOVE! :) Thanks for sharing!

  6. HE WHO MUST NOT BE NAMED! NOT THE V WORD! DON'T YOU KNOW ANYTHING RACHEL?!!!!!!!!!!! great answers. lol i love Luna. but yep. Hermione would be good for tutoring..;) WEASLEY FAMILY AND BUTTERBEER OF COURSE! i actually starting feeling a little sorry for Malfoy towards the end of the books/movies. And i think that if the circumstances (and his family) had been
    different i would have liked him... O____O
    I WANT THE CLOAK OF INVISIBILITY! *snatches off you and runs away*
    Oooh i agree. BELLATRIX FREAKS ME OUT! and she freaked me out more in the film cuz she just looks so...wild..;)

  7. This was a lot of fun. I'm also a big Potterhead, since I re-read the series almost every year and I watch the movies randomly when I feel like it :p

  8. Oh wow, AWESOME POST! I am a massive Potterhead so I will definitely be doing this tag too (if that's okay?). I loved all your answers! :D

    Harry to the prom would be amazing and I'd love Hermione to tutor me too - I'd pass my OWLs with flying colours! :D OMG I WOULD LOVE A BUTTERBEAR! Apparently you can buy them at the Theme Park in Florida..... *sighs at the expensive plan tickets*

    Thanks for sharing, Rachel! :D :D :D It's awesome that you're a Gryffindoor girl, I belong in Hufflepuff but maybe I can sneak into your common room sometime? ;)

  9. I think I'm going to have to do this tag now! It's so good!

  10. I may have been inspired to do this post, since I was looking for a non-review post to do! Some of the questions are so hard though; how am I meant to decide???

  11. This is like the CUTEST post ever. I agree with basically all your answers, seriously. I'd totally love to meet J.K. Rowling and have her answer all my burning questions about her books and her life in general. I'd definitely want an owl as a pet too! They just seem so awesome. And I'd want to be tutored by Hermoine, she IS like, the smartest person at Hogwarts, after all! ;)

    Awesome (and cute!) post, Rachel!! <3

  12. Ahh I haven't read Harry Potter so I don't really understand all this terms lol. It seems really fun though ;)

  13. Haha how cute!! That looks like SO much fun! :) I had a blast reading it!

  14. I love Harry Potter and my answer were mostly the same as you! I think I would want to be a Ravenclaw (have been told I'm smart) or a Gryffindor. Such a fun tag and fantastic post!
