Day 15: Pick three characters to be your best friends at Hogwarts.
Let me get started on answering this question right away because I’ve daydreamed about this more often than I care to admit.
Also notice how the question says best friends, because I really plan to have more than just 3 friends when I go to Hogwarts and since I’m hoping to be a part of the years of The Golden Trio, I will quite possibly be friends with just about everybody, including Draco Malfoy (and if he looks anything like Tom Felton, then definitely Draco Malfoy).
Hermione is so awesome!
I’ve always connected to her ever since I started reading the books and I always wished for a friend like her.
So my first choice for friends at Hogwarts is Hermione Granger, hands down!
And well, think about it (because I have), we both could sit in the library and read tonnes of books.
She’d appreciate the company, and the fact that we’d both be quiet and lost in our own books wouldn’t matter to her (or me) a bit.
Oftentimes, you make conversation with people just because you’re sitting with them and feel the need to fill those awkward silences. We wouldn’t need to do that at all.
We’d also end up studying for the exams together and again, she’d appreciate hanging out with me as opposed to Ron and Harry because, don’t get her wrong, she loves those two but they’re extremely annoying when it comes to studying! Those two really don’t care, do they?
(Although I’d probably disappoint her in this case because I don’t get much studying done myself!
But the fact that it’s magic studies coupled with the fact that I’d be with Hermione might bring about a change in me. Yes, I’m hoping Hermione rubs off on me.)
I’d also set up Ron and Hermione as soon as I could, and I’d be there for her every time she felt like she required some girl advice because both the boys are hopeless!
The times we aren’t in the library reading, we’d be hanging out and discussing books. We’d totally fangirl.
I’d just go crazy shipping my OTPs and Hermione would come up with extremely well thought out fan theories and headcanons and we’d become this fangirling duo at Hogwarts just like Greddy and Forgy are the mischievous duo. Which brings me to my next pick of friends:
Fred and George Weasley
Can you even imagine the amount of fun I’d have at Hogwarts if I hung out with these two?
And I wouldn’t have to worry about attending boring classes ever again, although of course, Hermione would drag my ass to them whether I liked it or not. And she’d see through the twins’ tricks every time!
But I’d have access to the Marauder’s Map!!
I’d sneak out with them, help them in their elaborate plans and just be there as moral support, if nothing else.
(And they’d like it if someone anonymously- or not- blogged about the successful and the not-so-successful tricks they played on various teachers and students… Three guesses as to who’d volunteer. Because everyone needs a blogger- even Sherlock Holmes!)
I’d persuade Hermione to convince Harry to lend us the Invisibility Cloak every once in a while, when he’s not too busy trying to save the world using it.
And because I’d be friends with Hermione, I would, by extension, be friends with the trio.
This is a win-win!
(Yes I’m choosing one more, shut up! Gred and Forge are one unit, they do not count separately. If you’re not convinced, I’ll post a few really really sad posts trying to prove my point, but I have decided to spare you- and myself- the feels. Every single mention of Fred and George doesn’t have to be sad. That sort of defeats their purpose in the books.)
(Also- how could I not choose Luna?
For someone who loves Luna as much as I do, I haven’t been appreciating her enough this past month)
I don’t really know what to say about our time at Hogwarts.
That is because I have no idea what it’ll be like.
Luna is so unpredictable- which is exactly why I’d like to be friends with her.
We’d talk about Nargles and Wrackspurts and she’d also randomly spout wisdom and I’d realise all over again why I admire her so much.
We’d both be in Ravenclaw so she’d be my house-buddy!
We’d sit together in classes and along with Hermione, we’d probably become this girl trio.
Of course, I’d first have to convince Hermione just how awesome Luna actually is… It would be good for Hermione too.
Luna is one of the most loyal friends I’ve come across in the books and I’d never take her friendship for granted.
The best thing about her is that she accept me the way I am (which is fortunately true for most of my current friends as well) and I’d do the same for her.
I’ve been pretty irregular here as far as the challenge is concerned, and I’d like to thank Aditi at My Crazy High School Life for reading my blog yesterday and commenting on various posts which reminded me how much I love blogging and so I ended up writing this post (I was planning to, of course, but got busy and finally did it today).
Thanks Aditi, my fellow Potterhead, you did not forget to be awesome! 🙂
