I actually would have chosen Slytherin, and that's not just because of all your house pride! :P My love of books pushes my over the edge into Ravenclaw, but I relate heavily with Slytherin's edge.

If you could only wear one color for the rest of your life, what color would it be?

Blue for sure - Most of my wardrobe is already shades of blue, so it wouldn't be that hard

A wand for sure. I'm just imagining enchanting a slicer at work to make all of a certain order on its own... Don't grow up kids, you have the weirdest daydreams. That or Newt's suitcase.


What item do you hope STAYS in the Harry Potter universe?

The Merc
This is a sturdy broomstick of quality controls and quick reactions but not something that will list to the side if a person gets a little doozy and/or tired. This broomstick will be actually sturdy enough to carry two people without diminishing its speed in the least. A fast broom, capable of travelling 140 mph and gaining that speed within 20 seconds, even loaded double, this broom will be the broom of choice for a witch (or wizard) who wants to have the best. Okay, well, the handle is going to be made of a combination of mahogany and bamboo. Why bamboo? Well, we all know the qualities of mahogany. It is sturdy, durable and it takes into it a multitude of charms and retains them well. The bamboo will be an inlay on the actual broomstick and then bamboo twigs will be intermixed with the ash twigs of the tail. Bamboo is a very resilient material. It will help the mahogany's ability to absorb weather conditions, abrupt changes of temperature and certainly it will help with any temperamental collisions that might happen with other broomsticks. However, my broomstick has, first and foremost, an improved version of the cushioning charm. If you have seen an english saddle (a saddle used for riding horses, for jumping and/or dressage), you will notice that they look VERY comfortable. A padded seat, stirrup leaters and irons so that your legs and feet are supported and you can use those stirrups to balance with and gain a bit more security on your broomstick. So the first improvement for my broomstick, along with the to-be-expected qualities of speed and function that all broomsticks share, is a quality of COMFORT. Secondly, my broomstick will have a built-in bubble charm with temperature control. Raining? Laugh at it! A little cold? Just mention the 'words' to the charm and you will travel in comfort and ease. Third, and maybe most important, I have developed an independent guidance system into the broomstick. It will have warning bells and whistles in case the person flying falls asleep on an extended journey BUT in the meantime, it will be able to continue on the plotted course, avoiding other traffic and then be able to touch down in a good place, hovering 2 feet above the ground, until the person wakes up and is able to continue in flight by themself. A fourth benefit is that with the mix of mahogany and bamboo, this broom will be virtually indestructable.
Which Fantastic Beast (from the book) would you most want to take home with you?

Since we're not allowed to have dragons, the most sensible pet for me would be a Fire Crab; its jeweled shell is simply gorgeous, it is very quiet, and it would not be too much of a fire hazard once licensed!

Who would be your date for the Yule Ball?

Either muffins, cake, brownies, or really good bread. (I pretty much just stated all the baked foods). Too hard to decide!

If you could choose a different house to be in the than the one you are now, which one would it be? (Please also state your house.)

Neither, but if I had to choose, I'd go with Dunder Mifflin.

I wouldn't change a thing about the Ravenclaw common room - the views are spectacular!
