Sort me!  

1. Name:Samantha, but please, call me Sam.
2. Age:15
3. Where do you see yourself in 5 years? I'm not sure. I live day-to-day; hopefully I'll have a job, be living somewhere else(I'm not used to small cities...), you know basic future stuff.
4. Which of the characters do you most relate to? Damn, I don't like this question. I'm not good at relating to characters, unless it REALLY hits close to home. I'm not sure, but I'm afraid that if I don't answer, I'll be squibed! *eep!*
5. Who is your least favorite character? Well, there are lots of characters I don't like, but I'd have to say, Cho Chang; she's whinny, and annoying. The list goes on! She can't just suck it up and deal with her problems, she has to cling, and leech off others for support. Bleh. No offense to all you Cho fans out there!
6. What would you see when you look into the Mirror of Erised? A group of 3-6 people who are my closest of friends, whom I can trust completely; we're pretty much our only friends.
7. What would your boggart be? A great White Shark. They're creepy! Their teeth are bared, rows upon rows all leading to a bottomless, black pit, eyes black, and lifeless... *shiver*
8. Dark Magic: Tell us your thoughts. Is there such a thing? Or is magic only dark because of the motivation behind its use? There is not "Dark Magic"; it's all lies in who is using, and why.
9. What is your favorite non-Harry Potter book? Quote something from it and tell us why you chose that line. Lord of the Rings. *flips through book, trying to find quote*"... but Legolas was standing, gazing northwards into the darkness, thoughtful ans silent as a young tree in a windless night."I'm not sure why I like it, it's the last part mostly.. "young tree in a windless night" I can see that image so clearly, and in my head, it's a beautiful image...
10. You are sitting in your house common room when you notice that another student has left a book lying on the table. You pick it up and realize it is their personal diary. What do you do? Flip through it briefly. It might belong to some over emotional chick, and that's so fun to laugh at! "ZOMG. He's so hot! But he would never talk to me! What should I do?" that would be funny. If it's not something like that, I'd put it back.
11. Would you use an Unforgivable Curse under any circumstances, and if so, what would those be? Yes, if my life depended on it. Then, and only then.
12. Do you think Harry was right or wrong to use his cloak to get to Hogsmeade in the 3rd book? He shouldn't have done it, but as long as he doesn't get screwed, so be it. Harry's not per-say, the brightest light in the harbor...
13. What's one thing you would do if you knew you would suffer no consequences from it? I would play pranks; lots of them. I would love to, but I'm always afraid to because of getting in trouble, so I'd do that. *fun**fun*
14. Someone has graffitied a hateful remark about your House on one of the walls in the Great Hall. Luckily for you, you overhear a conversation between House elves who witnessed the perpetrator, and you alone know who did it. What do you do? What if the remark had been done by another house, and was about a house that wasn't your own? I wouldn't really do anything. I'd sneer at them and confound them with my wit. If it were to another house, I'd the same thing, just not as extreme. I'd also tell an authority figure, because that's just not right.
15. What do you really think of Snape? Is he fair in the things he does? If Dumbledore trusts him, so do I. He can be unfair, and harsh, but he's not evil. He shows favoritism, yes. He's rude, insolent and and sometimes just plain cruel, but I still don't think he's evil. Just bad person. There's a difference.
16. Do you like the idea of a school being split into four separate houses? What about school unity? Yeah, sure. the houses sort people based on personalities, and having to much friction would cause even greater problems. There's variety in the Houses, but not enough to create major conflict. School bonding? Uh... They bond...
17. Which are more important: Friends or Family? Friends. Your family is chosen for you, and you're pretty much stuck with them (whether that's good or bad) friends you choose, and can be more like you, therefore you can get along better with them. Most of time, friends become your family! ^_^
18. Some people think the Weasley twins are funny, while others find them mean spirited. How do you feel, and why? I think they're HILARIOUS. There are people who think they're mean? They're so much fun! I love them! They have the nerve to pull the pranks I'd love to pull, but am too chicken. They're the best!!!! *heart*
19. Do you consider a first impression to be the only impression a person can give? Why or why not? I see it as a major impression, but not the only one. With enough effort, people can change how others view.
20. You've been asked to invent a new spell to be taught at Hogwarts. What is the name of the spell, what does it do, and what is the incantation? The Time Freeze Spell. It will temporarily pause time (range and length vary with skill). Kronos Stamatis. "Kronos" is Greek for "time", and "Stamatis" is a slightly altered way of saying "Stop". Yes, I speak Greek.
21. Think about a negative past experience and tell us how it affected you. What did you learn from it? If you could go back and change it now, would you? My dad had a heart-attack (he didn't die. Thank God.). It didn't affect me much. I was scared, but oddly calm. I learned that stress can kill you, as can an unhealthy life style (he was healthy, but you know, just saying). Life healthy, and care-free, and life can be alot better. Never Worry. Smile. Life is much too precious to spend unhappy. No, I wouldn't change it.
22. If you happened across the Room of Requirement, what would you find? A high power computer, with games and internet, video game systems, books, and music. And a big, wide screen TV with a beautiful surround sound and my beloved LotR Extended DVDs. *HEART* and various other movies... maybe some buddies.
23. What would you be willing to die for? Probably nothing. Maybe my mom. I would have to be faced with it. It wouldn't be for something material. It might be a friend, but I've gotten into the habit of never becoming fully attatched to friends becuase I usually end up losing them (because they, or I move). I love so many things, but I never cling to them so much that I would risk my life for it.
24. If you died, would you want to come back as a ghost? Why or why not? Eh, yeah, I guess. It would be so much fun! I would see people I love die, but I would have my friends come back too, and then we could go around messing with people!
25. Hermione has asked you to support S.P.E.W. (read: flagged you down and cornered you with a box of buttons that she shakes in your face to "entice" you to join). What is your response? "Hey, Hermione, I support your cause and everything, but I'm not walking around the school with a button pinned to my chest telling people to up-chuck."
26. What field of study would you most want to enter into, and why, once you graduated from Hogwarts? Alright, let me correct this; I can't really answer because I haven't read the books in almost a year. I remember careers that play major roles, but I can't remember them all. Please, cut me some slack. Maybe an Unspeakable. I think I'd be good at that!
27. True or False: Rules are meant to be broken. Explain. A little bit of both; Rules were made to to bent not fully broken. There's only so much you can get away with because these days people (authority figures, mainly) have sticks shoved so far up their butts that their sprouting out their nostrils.
28. You have one day to live. How do you spend your last day alive? Having fun with friends and messing around. Doing some of the things I've always wanted to do. Some sentimental goodbyes, but mostly light-hearted.
29. Do you think Dumbledore was correct in shielding certain truths from Harry? Why or why not? Yes. Harry didn't need to know everything, and frankly I was outright pissed off at Harry's attitude about that. It would have better if Harry didn't know. There were some things he should have told him, but I think he was in the right for the most part.
30. Finally, what house do you think you belong in? I thought that's what this was for; for you to decide where I belong! Rar. I don't know. I'm very smart, witty and can be cunning, I can also be very nice, and I'm curious. I have a very contradicting personality. "T__T I have no idea. VERY contradicting... It's to much to go into...
31. Oh, and one more thing. Just to make it easier on us for pointing, who told you about us?No one. I was on the Ouran Stampingz community and found this somewhere there.
Current Mood: curious*Curious*

lol. Thanks!

I was going to say Slytherin, but I agree with ratifuk that there's little ambition in your answers. What does one call a Slytherin without ambition? A Gryffindor. (Will leave further deep philosophical ponderings on that statement for another time.)

Hm, but a Gryffindor with ambition is not necessarily Slytherin.

But I do think I may have to agree with you otherwise :)

Lynn: ROCKS FALL EVERYONE DIESstarbucks5721 on January 4th, 2007 04:04 am (UTC)
Conflicting, definitely.

I want to stick you immediately into Hufflepuff for your lack of using the provided spellcheck, but that is characteristically Slytherin of me, so I'll hold off on that for the moment. Note how the Ravenclaws put you in Griffindor right off the bat. Squibbing would also be appropo- but as ratifuk said, there really aren't enough people in here anyways to do so.

You're NOT Slytherin. Not nearly cunning enough, and you hold your friends over your family. Bloodlines are VERY important to Slytherins.

Perhaps if you put as much time into HP as you do LotR, you might have made Ravenclaw, but given that you don't even know the basics on wizarding professions, and I'm not even sure you know what an Unspeakable is, let alone house unity, I can't put you there either. However, the Greek is cool.

Gryffindor you could make for the pranks idea, and the answers to the Unforgivables and Dark Magic questions.

But for the genuine "fluffiness" that comes across, and the sheer fact that you appear to have joined LJ simply for rating communites, I'm going to put you in Hufflepuff anyways.

twinhitachiin on January 4th, 2007 11:30 pm (UTC)
hee. Sorry. My spelling goes down the drain when I get writers block. I do pretty much put as much time to HP as LotR, I just refer to LotR more. I know exactly what an Unspeakable is, otherwise I wouldn't suggest that for myself. I know the careers that play major roles in the books. And when I read, I'm paying attention to the story, not necessarily the jobs, and since I moved here, I didn't have enough room to bring my HP books, so I haven't read them in almost a year, and the jobs don't stick to me as well as the rest of the stuff. I'm in the middle of GoF as we... type. I don't like being in big groups, so I might not perceive "unity" the same way you do. I just recently joined LJ, and yes, it was for the rating community, and I found others so now I might get into it a little more.

I promise I did not sort you based on your spellchecking abilities. That was just merely my immediate first thought. Grammatical errors annoy me, but I understand the majority of people do in fact make them. And I'm pleased to know you know much more than what came across in your app. :) Check out the comment I left below to ratifuk - it details out a bit more of what I was thinking when I sorted you.

Lynnstarbucks5721 on January 5th, 2007 03:45 am (UTC)
LOL I had a feeling I might get crap for this one XD

I promise you, Slytherin or not, I don't sort people purely by stereotype. Although that would be more fun at times, it isn't purposeful. And I really don't sort people by their spellchecking abilities, either.

Let me also make the point that as with Hagrid, Cedric Diggory was not stupid either. And he was a 'Puff.

Other than what I originally noted, some other things in the app that made me go 'Puff:

- Loyalty to her friends. She stated fairly emphatically that she would choose friends over family when it came down to it. And that loyalty continued into her apsirations of the afterlife, as well.

- She's patient. She fangirls LotR. I'm a fast reader, and I know how long it took me to read the trilogy. Question 21 deals with her patience with life and it's happenings and how she deals with stress. Patience is a good quality of 'Puffs.

- She dislikes Cho, citing her 'clinginess' and need to 'leech' off of others. This denotes possibly that she believes one should work for what one wants. Hard work is also a good trait in a 'Puff.

Hufflepuff is one of the most inclusive of the four Houses, and is far less selective. You can have Hufflepuff traits and not be sorted into the House, but it's people whose exceptionalities are the criteria that make Hufflepuff what it is.

On a final note, I think I might have to try that 'reckless idiot in tights' hero thing sometime. Might have interesting results...

twinhitachiin on January 5th, 2007 10:24 pm (UTC)
It's ok. I was really tired, and so I was a little taken aback. Really, when I think about, I liked Harry Potter years before I even heard about LotR! and with that, I also have the movies to love, but with HP, I really don't like the movies; they're disgrace the books. They leave soooo much out, mess things up, and frankly, they're not funny. The books are hilarious, but the movies? Bleh. And yes, I do have a lot of patience... but I get frustrated easily... Interesting. (Part of that whole "contradictory" thingy of mine...) I'm a fast reader too. I can't stand it when you have top read something out-loud and everyone's going "Slow down! Slow down! You read so fast! We can't understand you!!" but I read any slower, I feel like I'm reading in slow motion... literraly. When I look at myself, I think it's really weird that I'd choose friends over family. I've never had many friends, in fact I never had ANY friends until the 7th grade, and then it's always been like... a max of 2. But the only person in my family I feel strongly loyal to is my mom. My dad's ok, but know... issues. My sister' a horrilble, tyranical bitch, and my grandmother's the same way....
I might have to try the 'reckless idiot in tights' sometime too. *gets mental image* wow, that's awkward.

I'm actually going to try and decide something.

Your are not Slyterin, guarantee, the worst thing you're going to do is haunt someone when your dead and/or read an emotional person's diary and laugh at it.

Neither Ravenclaw, you just don't appear to be Ravenclaw....

I am stuck though, between Hufflepuff and Gryffindor... and I will say Gryffindor for the sole reason of #23.

You've been sorted into Gryffindor! Your application was posted some time ago, and we have just recently begun Term One after our big revamp. If you would still like to become a member of Hogwarts Challenge, please reply back to me here and you will be invited to your Common Room!
