I don't write much about my interests outside of makeup and lifestyle, but I am a big Harry Potter fan. I mean, I know bigger fans (such as Nicky) and to a lot of fans I am tame as anything with Harry Potter but I absolutely love it!
I joined Pottermore about a year ago, which I realise is a few years behind, but I was really eager to find out about my house and my wand especially.
I was soooo pleased with this! I don't feel I have the cunningness of a Slytherin, the bravery of a Gryffindor and Nicky is a Ravenclaw so I wanted to be different so we didn't argue over products in our house colours. Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw make a great combination anyway... Cho Chang and Cedric Diggory were so cute together! Also, to be in the same house as Newt Scamander and Nymphadora Tonks is great - two quirky characters that I adore!
I feel that I am really loyal, I like to be that person that others can rely on knowing I'm not going to backstab them, I'm definitely fair and I work my arse off doing what I love! I am true to myself and true to my loved ones. I'm not as patient as I could be, but I certainly give off that patient vibe on the outside!
Of course it had to have unicorn hair in it!
This extract is taken from the Pottermore website about unicorn hair, and this is why I love it so much...! It's loyal to the first owner and difficult to turn to the Dark Arts.
"Unicorn hair generally produces the most consistent magic, and is least subject to fluctuations and blockages. Wands with unicorn cores are generally the most difficult to turn to the Dark Arts. They are the most faithful of all wands, and usually remain strongly attached to their first owner, irrespective of whether he or she was an accomplished witch or wizard. Minor disadvantages of unicorn hair are that they do not make the most powerful wands (although the wand wood may compensate) and that they are prone to melancholy if seriously mishandled, meaning that the hair may 'die' and need replacing."
This extract is also from the Pottermore website on Laurel wood, which for me, I think is quite accurate!
"It is said that a laurel wand cannot perform a dishonourable act, although in the quest for glory (a not uncommon goal for those best suited to these wands), I have known laurel wands perform powerful and sometimes lethal magic. Laurel wands are sometimes called fickle, but this is unfair. The laurel wand seems unable to tolerate laziness in a possessor, and it is in such conditions that it is most easily and willingly won away. Otherwise, it will cleave happily to its first match forever, and indeed has the unusual and engaging attribute of issuing a spontaneous lightning strike if another witch or wizard attempts to steal it."
I love the thought of my want being loyal to me, and zapping something if they try to steal it from me!
I love dolphins! They are beautiful, graceful and so intelligent!
Plus, upon doing some research, some of the personality traits of a Dolphin are kindness and peace. I do like to provide people with peace if I can and being kind is something that I strive to be at all times. Plus kindness is a known quality of a Hufflepuff so it all matches really well!
