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!
LUMOS SORTING APPLICATION 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?
every time I update my LJ, every day or every other day, or whatever is asked of
me! 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
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
memories. 8. Describe your wand and tell us why you picked that design.
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. PART 2 - You

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.
