I'm sorry everyone. [Sunday, July 22nd, 2007 at 7:56pm<=LASTN_DATE_FORMAT]

[ mood | apologetic ]

I know a lot of people have applied for belong lately, and I want to apologize for the delay. We're working on revamping the community, and I have been without internet for a long, long time. But now I think I have it more or less under control, so hopefully within the next week, belong will be up and running again. My fellow founders, please let me know what I've missed in the past several weeks. Any updates I should know about?

1. Name: Tessa

2. Age: 21

3. Gender: Female

4. What are your hobbies/interests outside of HP? How do you feel these hobbies/interests contribute to your personality?  I really love reading and writing.  Those hobbies give me a quiet, studious personality- I'm a bit shy and introverted. Instead of playing outside like my brothers, growing up I would sit inside (or outside if my mom forced us there) and read and read and read.  I am also creative, with my habit of writing poetry, fanfic, and short stories.  I also love using big words (some might say I'm pretentious).  I love to learn- I read a lot of non-fiction.

I'm also into voulenteering, which I think gives me a more open mind and heart. It really gives me a look into the lives of others- the good and the bad, which gives me more compassion, I think. I belong to a service club at college.

5. Which Harry Potter character do you feel you can relate to the most? Explain. Which character is your favorite? Again, explain. I can most relate to Hermione.  She and I both love learning. We're both considered know-it-alls.  We both like books, and we automatically choose the library when we have a problem or a question.  We try to read up on anything and everything we can.  For example, Hermione read all about Hogwarts before going there, and I read as much as I could about my college before deciding to apply. She also has a stubborn, independent streak that I can relate to.  We're both strong-willed.

My favorite character is also Hermione.  I just relate to her so much, as I have said. We're both overacheivers (I always did all the extra credit). We're both researchers, in fact I hope to become a librarian.

6. Give us explanations and reasons for and against you being sorted into each house.
a. Gryffindor
For:
I believe in doing what is right.
Against: I don't think of myself as brave.

b. Hufflepuff
For:
I am friendly, kind, and empathetic.
Against: I'm not very open.

c. Ravenclaw
For:
I love reading and learning, and I consider myself smart.
Against: I'm a procrastinator.

d. Slytherin
For: I can be stubborn and strong-willed.
Against: I'm laid back.

7. What was your least favorite moment in HP? Probably when Sirius died.  He was just such a great guy. He was truly one of the good ones, and it's awful when a good guy dies. And it was so sad for Harry to lose the one person that he finally felt a connection to, the closest thing he had to a real family (I don't count his awful aunt and uncle)- his godfather, who wanted to take him in.  It seemed like such a senseless death.  I mean, killed by a curtain?

8. What about HP appeals to you (e.g. the romance, the adventure, the friendships, the fantasy, the mystery)? The friendships, the fantasy, and the mystery.  I like the friendships because they are fun and heartwarming.  It's so interesting to see these young people develop and watch them grow closer to one another.   It's nice to see young people grow so close to each other- makes me wish I could have friends like that, who would support me no matter what, call me on any weird behavior, and generally be like family.

I like the fantasy because I am a fantasy fan in general.  Sometimes it's nice to take a break from reality- to escape to a world where magic is real.  The fantasy paints such a rich, textured picture of this other place, a place not so far from where we are.  Fantasy just excites the imagination and inspires your spirit.

I like the mystery because it's just plain interesting.  I like trying to figure things out, putting the pieces together.  Trying to figure out who did what, what's going to happen next, is Snape evil or not, who's going to die in the last book, etc.  I enjoy exercising my reason.  It challenges me, makes me think.  That's always good.

9. What would you do if your friend was in danger? What would you give up in order to save them? Would you lay your life on the line?  I would do anything for a friend who was in danger.  Yes, I would even give up my life.  Ultimately, I have a heart for others- I want to please them above pleasing myself, and that extends to saving them over saving myself. My friend's life is important, and deserves to be saved.  I would have to do what I consider the right thing, and save their life even at the expence of my own.

10. If you could only store one memory in the Pensieve to visit over again, which one would it be? Why?  The day I got my first book.  Well, no, it wasn't my first book (I had books as a baby), but it was the first book I remember getting.  It was <i>Green Eggs and Ham</i>.  I was just so incredibly excited to get it.  I remember the whole thing, the pink and white gingham-like paper, the pink bow.  Opening it- and there it was!  A beautiful new book.  I was so happy.  I must have read that book 10 times (at least) that day, and I had my mom read it to me until she refused to read it any more.  I think that book partially inspired my love of books.

11. What excites you the most in life? Where do you get the most joy and fulfillment?  Books and reading excite me the most in life.  They're also where I get the most joy and fulfillment.  You can just find so much in books- fantasy and reality.  Happiness and sadness. Mystery and magic.  Tales of families and friends.  There's also a lot you can learn from them- about the human condition, how to write, history, friendship, and more.  There's not too much more exciting to me than getting a new book.

12. If you were in Harry's position during the "Snape's Worst Memory" incident, how would you view Peter, James, Sirius, Lily, Remus, and Snape differently? Why?  I think I would definitely view James differently.  I mean, here's someone you consider a hero, acting like a complete jerk.  I would feel let down.  I would feel the same way about Remus and Sirius- how could they be so cruel?  What a disappointment.

I would also view Snape differently- I might have some understanding of why he "hates" me, and treats me so badly.

I would have a newfound respect for Lily- she tried to help Snape.

13. If you had access to a time turner without worry of not being able to return, nor any other restrictions, what would you use it for and why?  I think I would go back to the Renaissance, one of my favorite time periods.  I think it would be cool to see how people really lived back then- what they wore and ate, how they worked and played.  I also think it would be awesome if I could meet my favorite author, William Shakespeare.  I would love to get to know him, ask him some questions about his plays and poetry.  And definitively find out if he really did write them. 

14. In the Philosopher’s Stone (AKA Sorcerer’s Stone) Neville had a choice: he could let his friends go out at night when they weren’t supposed to and potentially they could lose points for his house, or he could confront them and stop them from breaking the rules. What would you have done in his situation?  I would do what Neville did- confront them and try to stop them.  I am a believer in following the rules, and I would definitely stop anyone (even friends) from breaking them.  Plus, I would want to stop my friends from losing the house more points.  Why should everyone in the house suffer because of the actions of a few?  Few things tick me off as much as that- when people who don't deserve it get punished.

15. Who (dead, alive, or fictional) do you most admire? This can be someone from real life or from Harry Potter.  Mother Teresa, the loving humanitarian.  I love how she selflessly devoted her life to the poor and dying, the hungry and broken.  She had a lot of spirit and a big heart.  I really admire how she gave up everything to serve those who were the lowest and the least in society.   She was so devoted and loving.  I wish I had that much love and caring in my body.

16. What is your favorite book outside of Harry Potter? What is it about this book that endears it to you? Probably <i>As You Like It</i> by William Shakespeare (if plays count).  I just love Shakespeare's language- his wordplay, and his comedy.  I love the way he describes and draws the characters.  AYLI is so much fun- you've got gender-bending (a girl pretending to be a boy pretending to be a girl- keep in mind that she would be played by a boy in the Renaissance), romance, mistaken identity, friendship, and of course a happy ending.

17. In Goblet of Fire, Harry was chosen for the Tri-Wizard Tournament even with the age-line. Ron was unable to enter because of the age restriction even though he really wanted to be a part of the Tournament. Was Ron right to be jealous/angry at Harry? Were Harry's reactions appropriate? Why?  No, I don't believe Ron was right to be jealous and angry.  Harry told him that he hadn't placed his name in the goblet, and as a friend, Ron should have believed him.  What's a friendship without trust? 

Harry's actions were somewhat appropriate- I can certainly understand where he was coming from.  If I were Harry, I would certainly be upset.  And Harry was right to try to make Ron understand that he didn't do it.   But ignoring Ron, and the whole fight was silly.  I understand that some of it was Ron's fault, but Harry shouldn't have been quite so upset.  Understandable, but not right.

18. Which class would you look forward to the most at Hogwarts? Which classes do you/did you excel in most at school?  It's too bad there's not a literature class at Hogwarts- those are my favorite.  I think I would most look forward to Runes and Muggle Studies.  Runes because I am good at languages- I speak passable French and know some Latin.  I love learning other languages, it's so rich and engrossing.  I would look forward to Muggle Studies because I love learning about other cultures, their traditions and such.  Also, maybe we'd get into Muggle literature. 

In school, I most excelled at English classes, particularly literature.  I love exploring literature, analyzing the themes and characters.  Figuring out the plot.  I also like writing essays.

19. In the wizarding world, all 5th year students are required to pick a career to focus on going into their 6th and 7th years at Hogwarts. What career path would you choose? Why? How does it relate to what you wish to do (or are currently doing) in the future?  Well, I don't know if the wizarding world has librarians, but I imagine there must be one in places like Hogwarts.  If so, I would want to be a librarian.  I absolutely love books, and I love spreading that love of books.  I think I would like nothing more than to be surrounded by books all day, helping people reaseach their questions and problems.


20. In the Wizarding world, some pure-blood wizards consider Muggle-borns "filthy" and "horrible." In our world, people are categorized by their wealth, racial background, and appearance. What are your opinions on Muggle-borns? What are the qualities that you value in others?  I don't think Muggle-borns are any different than pure-bloods.  I certainly don't believe they are filthy.  They are worthwhile people, just like anyone else.  And they can be perfectly good wizards- look at Hermione, who is one of the best wizards of her generation. A very talented muggle-born. She pretty much blows away any stereotype that Muggle-borns aren't as good as pure-bloods at magic.

21. You have stumbled across five magical wells. One is the Well of Common Sense and Logic, the second is the Well of Creativity, the third is the Well of Optimism, the fourth is the Well of Physical Strength, and the fifth is the Well of Beauty. You can only drink from one well, but once you do you will be endowed with that ability for the rest of your life. Which well do you think you would definitely not need, and which do you think you would want to drink from?  I'm trying to decide between the Well of Common Sense and Logic and the Well of Creativity.  Common Sense and Logic because that is always useful- you need it to succeed in the world.  But, ultimately, I don't think I need to drink from that well- I think I have plenty of common sense.  So I would drink from the well of creativity.  I can always use more of that.  I love to write, particularly poetry, and more creativity would mean more and better poems and short stories.  It might spark new ideas for writings. 

I definitely don't need the Well of Beauty.  Not because I think I'm so beautiful already, but because I really don't care about beauty.  It's cliche, but I believe it's what's on the inside of a person that counts.  Your intelligence and your heart and soul matter- not your looks.  I don't even wear makeup.

22. If you had to make 5 Horcruxes, who are what objects would you choose and why?  Meaning, what means the most to you and why what significance does it have that you would want to put your soul into it? Firstly, my Bible.  I am a Christian, and the Bible has a lot of significance for me.  It dictates what I believe.  It is what I put my faith in.  Nothing means more to me than that.

Secondly, my Collected Works of William Shakespeare.  I love this book, and it has really influenced me.  I love the language and relationships.  I hold this book near and dear to me.

My cousin Kate.  She is just the sweetest girl in the world, and I love her with my whole heart.  Even though she's a lot younger than me, she's like a sister.  We talk all the time and share everything with each other.

A pen of some sort- probably my skinny purple pen.  I love writing, and creativity means a lot to me.  I love my purple pen because purple is my favorite color, and writing with it makes me feel talented, creative, and fun.

My teddy bear, Teddy.  He has been with me throughout my life.  He's a big old source of comfort.  I love him to bits. 

23.  What would your boggart form be and why?  A serial killer- maybe the Zodiac guy, even though I don't know what he looks like.  I am terrified of serial killers, they freak me out.  Not much scares me more than the idea of dying at random, killed in a horrifying way.  Or having someone else killed in front of me- brrrr.

24.  Anything else you want to tell us before we sort you? Also, please tell us where you heard about this community. (Members who refer new applicants receive points, so please try to be as specific as possible.) I like to sing in the shower.  Found this community by searching Harry Potter in interests on LJ.</lj-cut>

4. What are your hobbies/interests outside of HP? How do you feel these hobbies/interests contribute to your personality?
I am an avid history fanatic, I love to read biographies, war stories (about actual battles), peoples religions and cultures. Even though you can find me in the history building of my school on any given day of the week I also like art, I love to sketch and draw peoples faces. Some of my best work though is usually on a napkin when I am sitting in a restaurant waiting on one of my friends to say something interesting. Because I love to read about the past, I tend to not really talk to the people around me too much, I just watch them and I end up generally laughing at the mistakes they make and the things that they do.

5. Which Harry Potter character do you feel you can relate to the most? Explain. Which character is your favorite? Again, explain.
The character that I feel I can relate to the most would have to be Ginny Weasley, she was betrayed at a very young age by someone that she trusted and she was forced to do things that she didn’t really want to do by that person. No offense I am not going to go into details about who betrayed and hurt me but I can understand what she is going through in the given situation even though the person that did something to me wasn’t a diary but an actual living and breathing human being. Remus Lupin is my favorite character because he is struggling with all the loss around him and that he is a werewolf but he is still noble and doesn’t want to taint the ones he loves with his ‘dark side’ which makes you love him even more.

6. Give us explanations and reasons for and against you being sorted into each house.
a. Gryffindor
For:
It’s the house full of bravery and courage, to be in Gryffindor you are at once surrounded by people who have your back in a fight and you know that generally it is the good side of the fight that you are on.

Against:
Because you are brave does not mean you are smart, and knowing when to choose your battles is something that is definitely a must when dealing with untrustworthy persons.

b. Hufflepuff
For:
Loyalty and hardworker are the things that characterize Hufflepuff’s, meaning that they make friends for life and when you say need a friend to help you move or clean house they will be there by your side to help you sort through everything they don’t shy away from such things.

Against:
An ox comes to mind when thinking of Hufflepuff, a ox is better at pulling a cart then a horse. Oxen are dull creatures, that are hardworking but not very smart.

c. Ravenclaw
For:
They are the epitome of brains, when in Ravenclaw you will never lack for a study buddy.

Against:
Do they do anything else besides study, come on have a little fun for once, get out and live alittle.

d. Slytherin
For:
To be put in Slytherin you know that you must not only struggle within your house but also the outside, even though when looking at the books, you see that the Slytherins put up a strong front, but if you want to be top you have to work your way up there. In Slytherin you would always be marked as ambitious and driven, which means that greatness in what you do is probably a given.

Against:
The struggle, to try to prove that you are not an evil slimy git, though not necessarily bad would ultimately be straining on any ones psyche.

7. What was your least favorite moment in HP?
My least favorite moment was when Sirius died, I put the book down for a whole two hours before I would pick it back up and continue reading. I felt so sad for Harry, Remus, and Sirius. Harry lost his father’s best friend and his godfather, his friend even and it was turning out to be his fault that he lost him. Remus lost his last remaining friend from his youth, and one of the few people that he truly loved above all else. Sirius was cheated I think of life, he had just escaped from prison and was living in a hell hole, he had never really got a chance to finish growing up and now he dies in his one brief excursion outside.

8. What about HP appeals to you (e.g. the romance, the adventure, the friendships, the fantasy, the mystery)?
What appeals to me the most is all of it, HP has everything in it that makes a good series and makes it appealing. You can read it and forget who you are for just a moment in time, and to me that is what makes a good story and series.

9. What would you do if your friend was in danger? What would you give up in order to save them? Would you lay your life on the line?
If my friend was in danger I would do what ever I had to do to keep them safe, you see I count my friends, my real friends as my family. I would die for my family, and I would give up my dreams for my family. Friends are the same, I see no difference in my real friends and my family, I would do anything for both.

10. If you could only store one memory in the Pensieve to visit over again, which one would it be? Why?
The one memory I would store in a Pensieve would probably be the day that I first saw my baby nephew Gavin for the first time. I was away at college when he was born, he is my sister’s only son and she is a single mother. My friend Faith drove me home, because I don’t have a car, to see him when he was three weeks old on my birthday. I remember walking into the house and seeing him sitting in his basinet sleeping and I just started to cry and laugh at the same time. I had never seen anything so beautiful in my life and I knew in that moment that I would die just so that he could never feel any pain, so that he never had to struggle for anything.

11. What excites you the most in life? Where do you get the most joy and fulfillment?
I get the most joy when I am reading a good story, I get the most fulfillment when I am at work and I complete a folder of typing. In a story I can forget myself, and just try to figure out what is going to happen next in the story. At work, I work for a professor as basically his secretary, I transcribe letters all day long and it feels really good to sit back when I have finished a folder of letters and look and be able to see what I have done.

12. If you were in Harry's position during the "Snape's Worst Memory" incident, how would you view Peter, James, Sirius, Lily, Remus, and Snape differently? Why?
You can see Peter feeding off of James and the others, it is disgusting, sorry that is always the first thing that comes to mind. James is an arrogant prat, and Sirius is no better. Remus made me kind of mad for just sitting there and not doing anything about what was going on, Lily reacted the way that I expected her too. Snape was innocent in the beginning. It seems to me that James is more like Draco Malfoy and Harry like Snape when it comes to the whole antagonizing people kind of thing.

13. If you had access to a time turner without worry of not being able to return, nor any other restrictions, what would you use it for and why?
No, my past is what shaped me I can’t change the things that have happened to me as much as I would like to. There are some things that people need to learn to live with and to move on from, if someone I love were to die or get hurt then yes I would probably want to change that, but to change things for myself I wouldn’t do.

14. In the Philosopher’s Stone (AKA Sorcerer’s Stone) Neville had a choice: he could let his friends go out at night when they weren’t supposed to and potentially they could lose points for his house, or he could confront them and stop them from breaking the rules. What would you have done in his situation?
Try to stop them, the only thing that you know is that they have already lost points for being out after hours and here they go doing it again so yeah trying to stop them is the only option because to let them go in good conscience does not fit in with the Gryffindor code.

15.Who (dead, alive, or fictional) do you most admire? This can be someone from real life or from Harry Potter.
Louis XIV, he was the son of a gay king and ignorant mother who made it her point that her sons should have a kingly education. Louis grew up in a palace where he played hide and go seek to stay away from the people trying to assassinate him. Growing up to be a very paranoid individual he capitalized on little man and used them to over throw the Lords who had taken over. He was one of the most methodical and greatest leaders in Frances history.

16. What is your favorite book outside of Harry Potter? What is it about this book that endears it to you?
Favorite book is Mister Touch by Malcolm Bosse, its set in a slight futuristic United States where the U.S. is stricken down by a deadly virus derived from AIDS. The thing that gets me most about this story is that it is filled with hope, mystery, love in unlikely places and plenty of sarcasm.

17. In Goblet of Fire, Harry was chosen for the Tri-Wizard Tournament even with the age-line. Ron was unable to enter because of the age restriction even though he really wanted to be a part of the Tournament. Was Ron right to be jealous/angry at Harry? Were Harry's reactions appropriate? Why?
Ron’s jealousy and anger was a true show of human nature and made me as a reader want to give JK Rowling a hug for getting the teenage emotions down pat. Both behaved as two regular teenage boys, and though you feel for Harry because he has been unjustly entered into the contest that could kill him you also feel for Ron who has as usual been passed by in the spotlight and it seems he has always been passed by. You feel for both and you can relate because at some point or another you have been the friend who has been passed by for your best friend or you are the one getting undue attention for something that you can not help and one of your buds is left out in the cold.

18. Which class would you look forward to the most at Hogwarts? Which classes do you/did you excel in most at school?
I would look forward to the most would be potions, it goes back to high school because in school I was good at science and loved chemistry projects when we would try to get chemical reactions from certain ingredients, my favorite was when my teacher mixed potassium and water together, to put it shortly big explosion lots of questions from administrators.

19. In the wizarding world, all 5th year students are required to pick a career to focus on going into their 6th and 7th years at Hogwarts. What career path would you choose? Why? How does it relate to what you wish to do (or are currently doing) in the future?
I would choose something do with law enforcement, an Auror as corny as that is because my focus for the future is law enforcement. I have wanted to help others since I was a senior in high school and now I get to take that chance an may be help someone like the officer that helped me.

20. In the Wizarding world, some pure-blood wizards consider Muggle-borns "filthy" and "horrible." In our world, people are categorized by their wealth, racial background, and appearance. What are your opinions on Muggle-borns? What are the qualities that you value in others?
I am from the south, and to categorize people based on outward appearances is something that I have dealt with my entire life. I don’t see the need to categorize people, everyone fits into the same category until they show me that they don’t deserve my respect because of there own attitude. My mother raised me to respect everyone as long as they treated me with respect in turn. No one deserves to be judged by appearance or because they come from a different background than you.

21. You have stumbled across five magical wells. One is the Well of Common Sense and Logic, the second is the Well of Creativity, the third is the Well of Optimism, the fourth is the Well of Physical Strength, and the fifth is the Well of Beauty. You can only drink from one well, but once you do you will be endowed with that ability for the rest of your life. Which well do you think you would definitely not need, and which do you think you would want to drink from?
I do not think that I would need Creativity, I am already creative. If I were to pick Beauty then you would think that I am superficial, well think me superficial but hear me out first. I am the ‘best friend’ of the pretty girls. You know the girl that is nice, smart, funny, but she’s not pretty and she strangely enough always is always the girl that has the gorgeous best friend. I guess I am just tired of being looked over for my best friend, and it would be nice if only in a fairytale to be picked first.

22. If you had to make 5 Horcruxes, who are what objects would you choose and why? Meaning, what means the most to you and why what significance does it have that you would want to put your soul into it?
First off, don’t you know that to make a Horcrux you have to kill someone? Well putting that slightly disturbing part of the making behind: 1) my stuff animal tiger, I have had him since I was three and he is the one thing that I have always had with me. 2) this wooden box with chickens painted on it, my mom is obsessed with chicken memorabilia and this is the one thing that I like. 3) my ring, my mom bought it for me one day on this shopping/bonding trip that we did, its really simple wedding band that I wear on my right hand, it’s the only piece that I wear. (just to tell you this gets really hard after three) 4) this picture of my dog in this glass green frame, my dog Dixie was my constant companion when I was younger and when my mom and step-dad divorced I had to leave her, and the picture is the only thing that I have to remember her with. 5) I would have to say the final thing that I would put a part of my soul into would be small cross that I have, I got it when I was seventeen at a retreat that my church went to and it was with me when I made a lot of good memories and now it just sits tarnishing in a box.

23. What would your boggart form be and why?
It would probably be my father, he is the only thing in the world that frightens me above all else and just seeing him would freeze me.
