1. Name: Kasandra
2. Age: 17
3. Gender: Female
4. What are your hobbies/interests outside of HP? How do you feel
these hobbies/interests contribute to your personality? Ever since I
was little, I have been singing constantly. I love it! I have also been
in band playing a ton of instruments (as I could never chose one that I
wanted to play permanently), so I think that I have become a very
musical person because of it. I also love to sew, draw, paint, and design
wedding dresses. I might possibly go to school for fashion design, but I
haven't quite decided yet. I also like to style hair/makeup, and take
pictures. I LOVE taking pictures and making graphics. I would say that
my hobbies have generally made me very creative and friendly. I'm also
interested in theology, astrology, history, government, and science in
general. I think I'm sort of critical and analytical about things
sometimes because of those things.
5. Which Harry Potter character do you feel you can relate to the
most? Explain. Which character is your favorite? Again, explain. I
feel I can relate to Harry the most, which is funny because I don't
really like him a lot. I've been in foster care for quite some time, and
Harry is in a similar situation. Reading about him, in a way, kind of
sends me the message that I'm not the only one. I doubt that makes sense,
but yeah. My favorite character is Lucius Malfoy. Yes, he's a very sexy
man ;) but I also love how he's just very, well, slick about
everything. He's always been able to stay out of trouble (at least until the 5th
book) and I find him amusing to read about. And, buttfacemakani's
fanart of him just makes me love him even more.
6. Give us the reasons for and against you being sorted into each of
For: Well, with some of the situations I've been in before I was in
foster care, it did take quite a bit of courage to get through.
Gryffindors are known for their courage.
Against. Nothing really, other than I've never really liked many
of the Gryffindor characters in the book, but that has nothing to do
with me being sorted there.
For: I am extremely loyal to my friends and certain family members.
Against: I really can't think of anything for this one either. :(
For: I love learning! I just love coming home and being able to
just randomly say "hey, did you knowâ€¦.blah blah blah" to my foster
parents when I get home. It usually sparks some sort of debate, and I love
Against: Well, as much as I love learning, I don't really do all
that great in school. I hate homework, which usually means that I don't
do it, which then means I get a bad grade. This might just be a
stereotype of Ravenclaws (that they get good grades) but I really can't
imagine a ravenclaw that doesn't do well in school.
For: I'm very critical and arguementative. Any chance I get to debate
(or argue, for that matter) I take it. I take pride in proving people
wrong. I am also not the nicest person sometimes, especially if I donâ€™t
like you. Sometimes I go out of my way to try to make certain people's
day hell if I'm in a bad mood. I'm also very moody. I literally can go
from smiling and having a wonderful day to being pissed at the world in
about 3 seconds, and it doesnâ€™t take much to set me off. I am also
extremely talented at sucking up, or trying to at least.
Against: Then again, if I like you, I can be the nicest person
you've ever met. Slytherins can be nice too though right?.
7. What was your least favorite moment in HP? It's really hard
to think of something for this. I love Harry Potter to the point of
obsession, so I really don't have a least favorite moment. However, when
Umbridge took over as headmistress, I specifically remember cursing at
Rowling for it, so there. That's my least favorite moment, I guess. ;)
8. What about HP appeals to you (e.g. the romance, the adventure,
the friendships, the fantasy, the mystery)? Everything! It's hard for
me to find good books to read, and when I first read Harry Potter, I
couldnâ€™t put it down. Most of all, I love the fantasy and mystery in
it. I also love how funny it is at times. The characters are all awesome
too- how they all have interesting backgrounds and stuff. It's fun to
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?
Well, it depends on who is in danger. If it was any of my siblings, my
dad, boyfriend, or best friend, then I would die for them if I had to.
We've all been through a lot together, and I don't know what I'd do
without them. Anyone else- I'd have to think about it. I like living, and
if it's something they got themselves into, I'd have a hard time giving
up my life for them (unless it's the people I've mentioned above).
10. Given a choice between fame and money, which would you
choose? Oh, can't I have both? ;) I guess I'd take money, because with money
usually comes fame in some form or another. But, I guess it works the
other way too, so it doesn't really matter to me. Either is fine and
11 If you could only store one memory in the Pensieve to visit over
again, which one would it be? Why? I think it would be the last
night I spent with my mom. It was a really sad night for us, since we both
knew that the next day the courts would be handing me and my sister
over to the state. I remember being so mad at her for everything and
crying myself to sleep, and my mom crawling into bed beside me and trying to
make me feel better. The last night I was with my mom is something I
don't want to forget, since I doubt I'll ever feel as close to her or as
loved by her as I did that night.
12. What excites you the most in life? Where do you get the most joy
and fulfillment? What excites me most is looking forward to my
future. I have so many goals and dreams to fulfill, and I can't wait to get
started. In a few years my boyfriend and I will probably get married
and start a family of our own, and I'm so excited for that. Also, just
being with my close friends and certain family members makes me extremely
happy. I look forward to every minute I spend with them, so I guess
that's where I get the most joy. :)
13. 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 be a little amazed at how
immature James and Sirius were. I would be full of questions, that's for
sure. I mean, what could be more confusing than hearing about how much
your mom and dad loved each other, and then see how your mom acted
towards him. I think I'd be confused about it all.
14. Imagine you were an eleven-year-old Muggleborn witch/wizard who
did not know about magic and had just received your Hogwarts letter.
How would you react to leaving home and going to a magic school? I
think I'd be excited. Being able to do magic is every kid's wish at some
point in time, so I think I'd be very excited. I would miss my muggle
friends a lot, but I think it would be something that I could become
comfortable with after the initial shock wears off.
15. If you had access to a time turner and there were no regulations
regarding its usage, what would you use it for and why? Hmmmâ€¦I
think I'd go back to before I was even born (I'm assuming you could do
this?) and try to help my mom get her life on track before it ended up
how it did. I'd do something somehow to make her not get involved with
drugs and the crowd she was with. I think I'd also smack my biological
father just for fun. XD
16. In the Philosopherâ€™s Stone (AKA Sorcererâ€™s Stone) Neville
had a choice: he could let his friends go out at night when they
werenâ€™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? Honestly, I would have just let
them go. Confrontations dont usually bother me, but there's no way I'd
stay up to stop someone from breaking the rules. I value my sleep too
17. Who (dead, alive, or fictional) do you most admire? This can be
someone from real life or from Harry Potter. That would probably
have to be my foster care worker. She has been through a lot of bad
things like I have, and she has come out a wonderful person. She is very
responsible and caring, and easy to talk to. She's like a big sister to
18. What is your favorite book outside of Harry Potter? What is it
about this book that endears it to you? I love The Da Vinci Code. I
myself am pagan, and I haven't really read many books dealing with the
subject that I like. I also love how Dan put so much effort into it
(research, etc) and it was just one of those books that I couldn't put
down. Interview with the Vampire comes in as a close second.
19. You're sitting the final examination for a class that has given
you a lot of trouble. Your grade is borderline, you really need to do
well on this final to get an A. You can see the paper of your friend who
sits next to you and who happens to excel in this subject. You've
gotten to a question that you're stuck on. Do you glance at your friend's
paper to figure out the answer or not? Why? Yes. I'm not proud of it,
but I've done this before. I prefer doing things on my own, but if my
future/grade depended on it, I would look.
20. 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? I think Ron overreacted. Being one of Harry's best
friends, he should have taken the time to listen to what he had to say,
and then he probably wouldn't have been as mad as he was. Then again, he
still probably wouldn't have believed him, so I guess his reaction was
only human. I think Harry handled it as best as he could.
21. Which class would you look forward to the most at Hogwarts?
Which classes do you/did you excel in most at school? I would love
Arithmancy. I have a little book on it, and it's so much fun! I would also
look forward to any music classes Hogwarts offers. I did best in my
choir class, government, and journalism when I was in high school. My
favorite of those was Choir.
22. What would be the first place you visit during a Hogsmeade
weekend? Why? The clothing shops. I am a shopaholic, and clothing is my
favorite thing to shop for, and I'm going to college as a fashion
major. Other than that, probably Honeydukes. I love candy, but I love
clothes even more. :)
23. 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? It would be either between
being a journalist or a fashion designer. I'm not sure what classes
they'd require me to take for fashion design, but I think that would be my
24. 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?
If I were a pureblood witch, I admit that I would take great pride in
it. I would always have it in the back of my mind that I'm somehow
better. In others, I value respectfulness, compassion, and honesty. Without
those things, it's hard to have a relationship.
25. 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 think I would drink
from the Well of Beauty. I don't really need any of the others- I'm
already logical, creative, and strong. Optimism isn't something that I
would want for the rest of my life- it'd be weird to always be looking on
the bright side of things. Like always being unnaturally happy or
something. It seems kinda robotic in a way.
26. In Half-Blood Prince, we witnessed Harry force-feeding
Dumbledore the potion that weakened him, even though it pained Harry to do so,
because he promised Dumbledore he would do whatever he wished. If you
were in Harry's position, would you have stopped feeding Dumbledore the
potion, or would you have continued? Do you think it was right for Harry
to do as Dumbledore wished? Explain. I think that I would do it. I
value keeping promises, so no matter what, I would honor that promise,
no matter how much it hurt me. I think it was right of Harry to keep
giving it to Dumbledore- he made a promise, and he kept it, which is very
important to me. You shouldn't make promises that you can't keep, so if
you make it, you keep it.
27. 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'm excited to see where I end up and maybe make some friends. :)
I found the community during an interest search. I also like to sing in
the shower- especially Phantom of the Opera songs. XD
