Last time I was really in a rush, and didn’t think about my answers too much, eh.
So now I am perfectly free, and ready to share! Sorry for the other ones, guys!


Name: Laurie Shields :)

Age (13 or up; we stick to LJ rules): 15...turning 16 in March...kind of
far off, but time flies, and it'll be here before I know it!

Location: Baltimore, MD, USA--and loving it :) Baltimore might get some
bad reptation, but I couldnt imagine growing up anywhere. No matter where I go
in life, I will always remember where I came from.

Where did you hear about this community? (Please tell us which
lj user recommended you for he/she shall be given a point.) Recommended by "_hurley_girly_"

How much time are you willing to invest in this community? Pretty much
every time I update my LJ, every day or every other day, or whatever is asked of

PART 1 – Canon

1. Have you read all the books? Of course!! Each a few times, actually.
And I own all them. The sixth book was so great, one of my definate favorites!!! I still have to stick with number three though, you just cannot go wrong with that book. It is so amazing, and you meet Sirius!! But everyone who has not gotten the 6th book, has to go get it now!

2. Give us your personal interpretation of each Hogwarts house (in
terms of atmosphere, mentality, intra-house relationships et cetera –
these are just a few examples).
Gryffindor-it seems to me that this house is
very close. Everyone seems as if they would help each other whenever someone
needed a hand. The atmosphere of the house is very friendly. Gryffindor students
are honest and trustworhy. It also seems like the Gryffindor students will have
strong relationships even after they leave Hogwarts; the friendships will
last.Gryffindor to me just seems like a family.Gryffindor is a friendly house,
but don't over look it, for it can be very competitive too. Ravenclaw-This house
seems to me where all the smart students go. The atmosphere is probably very
studious. The common room I see as being quiet, for everyone is doing their
work. Ravenclaw also seems friendly, and will help out each other. Ravenclaw
students are witty as well.Ravenclaw can also be very competitive. Slytherin's
atmosphere is more sneeky. It almost seems as if the students dont trust each
other very well. They have friends, but they question if they can really trust
them. The atmosphere is like everyone is trying to be known.Slytherin is full of
greed and competition, but sometimes that is not a bad thing. Hufflepuff is the
nice house. All the nice students go here, and who can be humble. The students
are almost happy go lucky, but can also be naive. The atmosphere is very
friendly, and the relationships are strong. Hufflepuff is also known as the
quieter of the houses, and does not have a whole lot of rivalry with the other
houses, as Slytherin vs. Gryffindor does.

3. What would be your favourite flavour of Bertie Bott’s Every
Flavour Beans and why (note: as the name implies, all possible flavours
My favorite flavor would be Chocolate Cinnamon; classic, but with a
twist! Chocolate is my favorite type of ice cream, candy, whatever, you name it.
Cinnamon, I could put on anything. It is a taste that could make me smile when I
am in the worst of moods. Put the two together, and voula! You get the best
flavor in Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Beans!

4. If you were on your House’s Quidditch Team, which position would
you preferably play and why?
I would be Chaser, because I am very
competitive in sports, and I like to reach my goal quickly and efficiently.
Also, the team really does rely on their Chaser, because they need to build up
the points in case the other team catches the Snitch, or just to get a lead. I
like to have the responsibility of people relying on me, and I always feel up to
the challenge. Chaser's can be really competitive, which I am. Also, the feeling
you get when your team congratulates you when you score is a nice feeling too.
Overall, I think the Chaser position best fits my abilities and personality.

5. (Optional) What HP conspiracy theory do you hold true unless it
is textually proven otherwise? (i.e. Snape is a vampire, Ron is
Dumbledore, etc. –there are loads of these theories. Feel free to contribute
your own)?
Well I'm not sure if this is a theory, but that Harry is somehow
related to Dumbledore. Dumbledore is very protective of Harry, and just looks at
him in a different light. I think there is also more behind his affection then
just trying to care for Lily and James' son. There is a different kind of love i
see there, that Dumbledore feels towards no other. Harry also looks towards
Dumbledore, and truly respects him.

6. (Optional. If you can't answer #5, make sure you answer this
one.) What is your favorite book aside from HP and why?
I'll answer this one
too. That is really hard to pick, because I enjoy a lot of books. I would have
to say my favorite would be To Kill a Mockingbird. I was assigned that book in
8th grade, and all growing up all my siblings read that, and always talked about
it. You see the harsh realoty of a world through a child's point a view, and
their grasp and naive nature on the subject on truly amazing. You fall in love
with the character's so easily, and you can see yourself in at least one of
them. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

7. What would your Room of Requirement look like? Apart from it looking
exactly like Hagrid's Hut... it would have huge comfy cushions and sofas. It
would contain my favorite books like the HP series and To Kill a Mockingbird. It
would have a huge screen tv with a dvd player with my favorite movies like Pearl
Harbor, Star Wars, Harry Potters, Finding Neverland, all comedies from Ben
Stiller, Will Ferrell, Vince Vaughn, Adam Sandler, and of course all the disney
classics. It would also have a mini Panera Bread store, for easy access. Have
you ever been there? You must go, its amazing! Haha. I would also have music of
rap, plus some oldies but goodies, like thw Beach Boys and Elton John. I would
also have all the pictures from my childhood to fill the room with warm

8. Describe your wand and tell us why you picked that design. My wand
would be oak wood with unicorn hair, long, for charms. I picked this wand
because 1. oak wood is classic and sturdy and reliable, 2. unicorn hair is rare
and magestic, and unicorns are animals that are respected and beautiful, and any
crime against them is grotesque, and unicorns are a sign that there is light
ahead for anyone who has been in trouble, and needs to find the light and 3.
charms interests me, because you can take something concrete, and have total
control over it, like levitating. I'm going to be honest and say I'm pretty
lazy, so levitating would come in hand a lot when trying to get something
without having to get up.

10. Who do you admire most and why? My role model is my mother.She raised
5 children ranging from 11 year old to a 1 year old. We are now older. She kept
us all disiplined, sent us all to Catholic schools, and those old enough to
college. She always puts her children first, and whenever one of us has a
problem, she is always there to help. I cant imagine my life without my mom. I
have a lot of fond memories of childhood, and I really love and respect my
family. I respect all that my parents have given up for their children, and the
sacrifices they have made.

11. What would you like to have accomplished at the end of your
To have lived a long, fun, exciting, lovely life, and to have done
something that changed the world or got me famous. I would want to find a cure
for cancer, because it could change so many people's lives, so many people it is
hard to even grasp the amount. When I am older, I wish to look back on my life
and have no regrets of what I did. I will want to have a trillion more fond
memories, and even not so great ones, because those memories that are sad shape
who we become. I hope I will have learned from all my mistakes, and I hope my
family and my children later on will lead good, safe, and wonderful lives. i
also want to go to heaven, and see all those who have gone before me.

12. Would you sooner commit a crime against your kin or your
Countrymen. I would never like to commit a crime against my
family, for they trust and love me, and breaking that bond of trust would
totally destory me. If I ever thought my family didnt trust me, I dont know what
i would do. If you commit a crime against your country men, you feel guilty, but
you dont feel like you let anyone down or broke any bonds.

13. What would your animagus be and why? Dog-turstworthy, loving, and
fun, as I am. I like to be cared for by the one around who love me, and i do
like to be showered with attention. Dogs are adventurous and fun, and can be
daring. They also protect those around whom they love, which I would do for
anyone I love; I would always try and protect them. Dogs are lifelong friends. I absolutly love my dog, I really feel like she is human. Mayube it sounds weird, but there is no doubt a special bond.

14. What would your patronus be and why? A tiger, because it can be
strong and protective of those whom I love. tigers can be feared, but also
looked at as very graceful. A patronus to me is something you see protecting
you, and I see a tiger as protection. A tiger is also lving towards their young
or parents, which I am. A tiger has also been a livelong favorite animal of
mine. I am also very brave when I need to be, and trustworthy.

15. What career would you consider if you were indeed part of the
wizarding world and why?
I actually would need to rethink this, or have some
career advice. I see myself enjoying a lot of things, but I'm not sure if they
are career like. I would enjoy having my own small chain of wizarding stores
that sells books and coffee, pastries and buns, where anyone can come in, and
just settle and relax. The atmosphere would be very laidback. But I am not sure
if I would like this as my career. Also, I would very much enjoy being a
professional Chaser in quidditch, but I could grow tired of that. I would really
see how I would do on my O.W.L.s to see what my true strengths are.

I was considering Hufflepuff but I think you are too energetic to be anything but a Gryffindor.

29th-Jul-2005 03:48 pm (UTC) - Re: Ravenclaw
Ah cool!!! Thanks!!
29th-Jul-2005 03:55 pm (UTC) - Ravenclaw
You're so Gryffindor, with a healthy mix of Hufflepuff.

29th-Jul-2005 04:23 pm (UTC) - Hufflepuff
I get a definite Gryffindor vibe from you. :)

29th-Jul-2005 04:26 pm (UTC) - Gryffindor
You're one of the few people I know that has mentioned To Kill A Mockingbird in a good light, and Sirius of course rocks... so there is no other option except to drag you off to Gryffindor with me!

29th-Jul-2005 05:02 pm (UTC) - Re: Gryffindor
It is such a good book, I love it!! and yes, Sirius of course rocks!! Ahh yay, I love Gryffindor!
29th-Jul-2005 05:21 pm (UTC)
OMG! Love you're icon. Ok just wanted to say that. Gryffindor
29th-Jul-2005 05:22 pm (UTC) - Hufflepuff
oh sorry. I forgot to put "Hufflepuff" in my subject line.
29th-Jul-2005 07:23 pm (UTC) - Gryffindor
*Nods in agreement with the Gryffindor voters*

29th-Jul-2005 07:37 pm (UTC) - Gryffindor
Some Hufflepuff going on, but I'll agree with Gryffindor.

29th-Jul-2005 07:46 pm (UTC) - Ravenclaw
I get more Hufflepuff than anything.
29th-Jul-2005 08:05 pm (UTC) - Slytherin
You emphasized a lot of Hufflepuffly traits in most of your answers. It might be purposeful or a subconscious gesture, but I'd like to think you did it without realising.

29th-Jul-2005 09:25 pm (UTC) - Gryffindor
I understand where the Gryffindor votes are coming from, but I think that you'd do best in Hufflepuff.

29th-Jul-2005 10:49 pm (UTC)
I am thinking Gryffindor. And I forgive you for your animagus answer, even though cats are way cooler than dogs... =P

And here's my sigtag, because you love Sirius:

My first sorting of this batch and I've already forgotten the subject line

30th-Jul-2005 04:54 am (UTC) - Ravenclaw
I would have wished for more elaboration in the house descriptions question but I feel you are a very determined and outgoing individual. Thus, Gryffindor.

To Kill A Mockingbird is one of the most amazing and fascinating books i've ever read. I totally agree with what you said about how it's written in such a way you fall in love and really care for the characters. Anyway, welcome.

30th-Jul-2005 11:59 pm (UTC) - Re: Hufflepuff
I know...isnt it? Glad you agree with me!! Thanks for the welcome, and thanks for the gryffindor!
30th-Jul-2005 12:53 pm (UTC) - Ravenclaw
mmmm...Panera..i could definitely go for a sierra turkey sandwich right now..

*ahem* anyways. I was teetering back and forth between Gryffindor and Hufflepuff. But I seemed to get more of a Hufflepuff vibe from you most of the time, so that's where I'll stick you :)

31st-Jul-2005 12:00 am (UTC) - Re: Ravenclaw
mmm see im craving a smoked turkey on country bread!! haha
30th-Jul-2005 02:23 pm (UTC) - Gryffindor
Gryffindor... but I see the Hufflepuff too. :]
Your Bertie Botts flavor sounds kinda yummy. ^_^
31st-Jul-2005 12:01 am (UTC) - Re: Gryffindor
i know doesnt it??!! Hehe i love chocolate and cinnamon!! thanks for the gryffindor!
30th-Jul-2005 06:52 pm (UTC) - Hufflepuff
Ultimately a Gryffindor

30th-Jul-2005 10:15 pm (UTC) - Gryffindor
You certainly have a lot of Hufflepuff traits! Protective, loyal, trustworthy. You chose oak as your wand wood because it's sturdy and reliable. You do have the Gryffindor love of excitement and adventure, but who says that Puffs can't be exciting? ;) I really do think that's where you belong--Hufflepuff--but I'd be happy to have you in my house, too. Yay for another TKAMB fan. :)

I agree with you To Kill A Mockingbird, I read it in 5th grade just for fun and loved it, then this past school year it was assigned and I loved it again!
On to the sorting...
I really can't decide between Gryffindor or Hufflepuff. Let's call you a Gryffinpuff/Huffledor(that one's weird...) and be done with it!
Okay, let me skim your app again. Nope, still can't choose..*re-reads once more*
..Ultimately I think you have that honest, loyal, hard working Hufflepuff thing going on.
31st-Jul-2005 07:42 am (UTC) - Ravenclaw
Off to Gryffindor with you.

31st-Jul-2005 10:23 am (UTC) - Slytherin
You show both Gryffindor and Hufflepuff traits and I truly believe that you would be very happy in either of them as you seem fun and loveable. I'm going to go with Hufflepuff.

31st-Jul-2005 11:31 pm (UTC) - Ravenclaw

- You seem rather energetic and outgoing.
- Your Myers-Briggs results seemed Gryffinpuff-ish.
- You mentioned unicorns as a sign that there was light ahead for everyone rather than them being pure.
- You want to live a long and exciting, fun-filled life. In general you're ambitious to help everyone.
- Overall tone of the application seems very Gryffindor rather than Hufflepuff.

Welcome to Lumos! Have a great time!

wow...thanks for the in depth analysis! I liek to know what makes people decide what to put me in, so thanks!! Awesome icon, i've seen a lot of those around...is there a certain community for them?
1st-Aug-2005 08:28 am (UTC) - RAVENCLAW
Wow. I had no idea that many spelling/grammar mistakes could fit into one application. Of course, you don't need to have perfect spelling/grammar to be sorted, so Gryffindor. Though proper spelling/grammar always makes you look better when applying. Or maybe it's just me.

2nd-Aug-2005 12:50 am (UTC) - Re: RAVENCLAW
well...i wasnt thinking about grammer, i was just typing as thoughts were coming into my head
1st-Aug-2005 08:58 pm (UTC) - Ravenclaw
I like how swords_crossed put it, youre in Gryffindor!

thanks...oh my god your debbie downer icon is hilarious!!!
