The Hogwarts Tag

I saw Catherine @ We'll Meet it When it Does do this tag and had to have a go at it myself!

Am I pure-blood, half-blood or muggle born?


Which wand chose me?

10" Beech wood with Unicorn hair core. Aw yeah.

‘The true match for a beech wand will be, if young, wise beyond his or her years, and if full-grown, rich in understanding and experience. Beech wands perform very weakly for the narrow-minded and intolerant. Such wizards and witches, having obtained a beech wand without having been suitably matched (yet coveting this most desirable, richly hued and highly prized wand wood), have often presented themselves at the homes of learned wandmakers such as myself, demanding to know the reason for their handsome wand’s lack of power. When properly matched, the beech wand is capable of a subtlety and artistry rarely seen in any other wood, hence its lustrous reputation.’

Did I take an owl, a cat, a rat or a toad?

It has to be an owl. Especially if I could have an eagle owl; I'd call him Apollo.

Where did the sorting hat put me?


What house did I want to be in?

Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff.

What lessons are my favourite and least favourite?

I'm a huge history nerd so I think History of Magic would probably be one of my favourite subjects, and I think Divination taught by Firenze would be quite interesting (sorry Professor Trelawney). I was quite good at baking at school, so I think I could transfer those skills to Potions and I hope I wouldn't find DADA or Charms too difficult. Care of Magical Creatures sounds so fun, too, and I'd be great at Muggle Studies! I have a feeling Transfiguration is what I'd struggle with most on the basis that I was never very good at languages at school, so trying to transform something I know into something completely different is something I struggle with.

The form my patronus takes:

A snowy owl.

What does a Boggart look like for me?

I don't know and I don't think I want to know. I'm terrified of spiders, but I don't know if they'd be my Boggart considering Boggarts play on a person's biggest fear - for me that's probably more along the lines of failure.

Do I partake in any magical hobbies or school sports?

I've never been a big sports fan, but considering I'm a muggle-born and this is a sport that involves flying on broomsticks I'd have to give Quidditch a try - I was pretty good at badminton and tennis, so maybe I'd be a good beater.

Where would I find myself hanging in my free time?

The Ravenclaw Common Room's in the Astronomy Tower, so I'd have to try my hand at some star-gazing in my free time. Other than that I'd probably spend time reading in that cool library, hanging out with friends and exploring the school. I wouldn't mind heading into Hogsmeade for some butterbeer, either! I joke, we all know if I went to Hogsmeade I'd spend the day in Flourish & Blotts.

What would I most likely get detention for?

Probably not getting homework done - but I really would try!

What career do I want after leaving Hogwarts?

I mean if you're a muggle-born pretty much any magical career is going to be cool, right? I think I'd have to be a Historian of Magic, though, with my particular focus on the history of European witch trials.

If you want to have a go at this, consider yourself tagged!


  1. Oh I LOVE this tag!! (Big surprise LOL!) and I loved reading your answers :D I need to get this one done as soon as I have a second! Thanks for sharing xx

  2. I loved doing this tag! I think History of Magic could be fascinating. :)

  3. You're right, Transfiguration always sounds really difficult - and I'm so jealous of your patronus!

    1. Rattlesnakes are so cool, though! And snakes in general are often associated with Pagan earth magic. ;)
