Join Me As I Discover Pottermore!

I notice a few of my internet friends on FB were changing their profile pictures with a banner of their house from J.K. Rowling PotterMore. I have been on PotterMore since it’s Beta testing days, but for some strange reason my account always gets deleted by the time they do a major update. This does not bother me since it gives me more time to re-enter myself as a student, which means more fun! I am really surprise that the first item on the list is a PATRONUS! I automatically though of my patronus was going to be a dog or  wolf, since I love my wolf pup Alcide so very much. That being said I can promise you my patronus is 100% not a Wild Dog of any type. At first I was kinda upset that I didn’t get a wild canine but I quickly loved my patronus once I saw it galloping across the screen.


 

 I think the coolest part about this entire new edition to the PotterMore website, has to be the 3D images of the Patronus. Before, PotterMore looked like a virtual picture book, however with this new 3D web-design, I have to say I am rather quite surprised! I remember when it relied only on great illustrations and a few moving pieces of the image to bring it to life! That’s not the case now, with the 3D molds and the amazing sound quality when you’re taking the Patronus test, it really feels quite epic! I’m going to be honest with you, I had to take the test twice because I was honestly not pleased with the idea of a Wild Cat as a Patronus. I just didn’t like the idea of me being a wild thing despite how much I love it when Holly Golightly says it!

I re-did the test and I am extremely happy with my new Patronus!

Sorting Hat: Hogwarts Houses

” . . . So put me on! Don’t be afraid!
And don’t get in a flap!
You’re in safe hands (though I have none)
For I’m a Thinking Cap! ”
Sorting Hat Song 

I remember everyone in my class in school, would talk if not argue about which Hogwarts House they would be in IF Hogwarts Sorting Hat was real. I  can’t believe it’s been that long ago, now you don’t even need to argue about which Hogwarts House you think or know the Sorting Hat would place you in! J.K.Rowling made sure that with this new update there would be no confusion about which house you would be placed in. I have to say, even when I was in grade school I always felt that my house would be Ravenclaw. I love Luna LoveGood even before she before Evanna Lynch brought her to life. I love Luna Lovegood as a character, as a personality, as a supporting figure in the story line and of course her strange behavior to others. When I was a kid, reading the Harry Potter series, I always felt that if we were ever able to meet in Hogwarts school,
we would be instant friends, of course I always assumed that to be true since my Dad and I always walked around the house and even the yard ( to my mothers horror) not wearing shoes on our feet! This of course was just a great confirmation on the fact that two none shoe wearing females would become instant friends, despite the fact that reason why Luna never wear shoes was due to the fact her’s kept getting stolen, I just really hated tying my shoelaces and felt even more ridiculous when I manage to tie them but to tight to take them off at the end of the school day! NO SHOES IN SCHOOL! Actually I got in trouble many times in Catholic school for taking my shoes off in class. I was fine as long as I sat at my desk, who exactly would notice, right? The problem is that I would forget to put my shoes back on if or when, the teacher would ask me to answer a question at the blackboard! Ooops!With my love for books, riddles, rhymes, ghost, music, deadly creatures, and of course the house itself, I am sure I would have won many different points for Ravenclaw by the end of the school year! That’s why I am super excited, for the third time in a row I am a proud member of house of . . .


RavenClaw! The first thing I saw after being sorted into my rightful house, on the first try mind you, is a full length article from Pottermore about the most famous Ravenclaw alumni, with Luna Lovegood being the first person featured! I had to share the 7 AMAZING reasons why you should fangirl about Luna with me!

7 reasons to love Luna Lovegood

An Article from PotterMore Found Here
Luna Lovegood is, quite frankly, a delight.

She’s open-minded with a dreamy disposition and a distinct flair for fashion. As J.K. Rowling herself has said: ‘She’s slightly out-of-step in many ways, but she’s the anti-Hermione. Hermione’s so logical and inflexible in so many ways and Luna is likely to believe 10 impossible things before breakfast.’

There are so many reasons to love Luna Lovegood, but let’s start with these seven…

1. She’s unique

The girl gave off an aura of distinct dottiness. Perhaps it was the fact that she had stuck her wand behind her left ear for safekeeping, or that she had chosen to wear a necklace of Butterbeer corks, or that she was reading a magazine upside-down.

2. She’s a true Ravenclaw

Luna did not seem perturbed by Ron’s rudeness; on the contrary, she simply watched him for a while as though he were a mildly interesting television programme.
‘*Wit beyond measure is man’s greatest treasure*,’ said Luna in a sing-song voice.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

3. She’s sweet to Harry when he sees Thestrals for the first time

‘Oh, yes,’ said Luna, ‘I’ve been able to see them ever since my first day here. They’ve always pulled the carriages. Don’t worry. You’re just as sane as I am.’
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

4. She gets so excited when Harry invites her (as friends) to Professor Slughorn’s party

‘Oh, no, I’d love to go with you as friends!’ said Luna, beaming as he had never seen her beam before. ‘Nobody’s ever asked me to a party before, as a friend! Is that why you dyed your eyebrow, for the party? Should I do mine, too?’

5. She’s surprisingly good at commentating on Quidditch matches

‘And that’s Smith of Hufflepuff with the Quaffle,’ said a dreamy voice, echoing over the grounds. ‘He did the commentary last time, of course, and Ginny Weasley flew into him, I think probably on purpose – it looked like it. Smith was being quite rude about Gryffindor, I expect he regrets that now he’s playing them – oh, look, he’s lost the Quaffle, Ginny took it from him, I do like her, she’s very nice…’
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

6. She knew just what to say when her friend Dobby died

‘Thank you so much, Dobby, for rescuing me from that cellar. It’s so unfair that you had to die, when you were so good and brave. I’ll always remember what you did for us. I hope you’re happy now.’
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

7. She believes in all creatures

‘You can laugh, but people used to believe there were no such things as the Blibbering Humdinger or the Crumple-Horned Snorkack!’
Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix

My final topic of this post will be my wand, I know it’s not fancy like the elder wand, but I notice that people were asking one another what type of wand did they get, so before my friends start texting me questions that I know I will forget here is the answer…


My Wand
Aspen wood with a Phoenix feather core 10 ¾” and Reasonably Supple flexibility

 

This is all for my Pottermore adventure, I hope you guys liked it! Please let me know you’re thoughts in the comments below or continue to email me/message me on FB about this post <3. I never though of myself as a big Harry Potter fan, but I am SUPER EXCITED about the fact that my daughter is obsessed with Harry Potter movies! I feel super geeky because it gives me the excuse I need to attempt to make a Harry Potter theme X-Mas tree, as well as buying some more Harry Potter books, like the illustrated Harry Potter series that’s available! Oh I am totally buying that under the shadow that I am buying it for Zoe but in truth I’m really buying it for us to share!  Tell me what other Harry Potter merchandise you really want to buy may it be for you or someone else! I need to add some Harry Potter merchandise to my life, as well as my library! Here’s are just a few items I know from the top of my head that I must have next pay day or sooner!
