I love a fun little tag, especially when it’s magical! In hindsigt I perhaps should have written down more good characters because fuck me.. well, I guess you’re about to find out for yourself. Most of them are so dreadful that you’d think I cheated and tried to make it horrible but the truth is that life just often fucks with me and this tag, apparently, is no exception.
Now, let’s do this!
➸ Write 30 character names on pieces of paper.
➸ Put them in a jar/mug/cup.
➸ Randomly choose two pieces of paper for every question. In each of the 15 questions, you have to decide which of the two characters fits the question and which one is not good enough.
1. YOU ONLY HAVE ONE MORE SPOT ON YOUR SPELLING BEE TEAM. WHO DO YOU PICK TO COMPLETE YOUR TEAM?
Severus Snape OR Mad-Eye Moody
Oh no. The problem is that they’re both very intelligent and would probably both help us win. They’re both insufferable in their own way as well… Hm… Honestly, and I might regret my choice deeply, I think I have to pick Snape. But only because I want to win really bad!
2. BOTH CHARACTERS WANT TO KILL YOU. WHICH ONE WOULD YOU KILL FIRST SO YOU HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF SURVIVING?
Cedric Diggory OR Horace Sughorn
Uhhhmm… Cedric is gifted but is a school boy whereas Slughorn managed to escape the Death Eaters for a year or so so he must have some skills. Hm… I might have to kill Slughorn first.
3. YOU’RE ON THE BACHELOR/BACHELORETTE AND YOU’RE DOWN TO THESE TWO CHARACTERS. WHICH ONE ARE YOU GOING TO GIVE YOUR ROSE TO?
Peter Pettigrew OR Rita Skeeter
Two horrible choices but no-one is, in my opinion, as bad as Pettigrew so I would pick Rita Skeeter and just have to keep my mouth shut.
4. YOU’VE BEEN CHOSEN FOR THE HUNGER GAMES. WHO WOULD MOST LIKELY VOLUNTEER IN YOUR PLACE?
Luna Lovegood OR Hagrid
Trouble is that I have no doubt that they both would. But I think Hagrid would stand a better chance even though I would hate to see him kill innocent children but it is what it is. I choose Hagrid (like a weird Pokémon).
5. YOU’RE STRANDED ON AN ISLAND WITH AN ACTIVE VOLCANO. WHICH CHARACTER WOULD YOU THROW INTO A VOLCANO AS A SACRIFICE?
Lily Potter OR Hermione Granger
OH NO! Both very intelligent, both good for survival… Perhaps Lily would be easier to be around for a longer period of time? I don’t know. *sigh* But I like Hermione.. Oh no uhm… Ah fuck it, Lily has made enough sacrifices. I would toss in Hermione (sorry!)
6. YOU’RE THE NEXT DC/MARVEL SUPERHERO (WITH YOUR OWN T.V. SHOW, OF COURSE). WHO IS YOUR SIDEKICK?
Petunia Dursley OR Harry Potter
YES! Harry’s ma bitch! It would be one hell of a show, am I right? Talk about being the chosen one.
7. YOU’RE A MANAGER OF AN AVOCADO-ADMIRING COMPANY. WHO WOULD YOU FIRE FOR LACK OF COMMUNICATION SKILLS?
Ron Weasley OR Sirius Black
Both terrible at communication, both have tendencies to get irritable and broody. This is a tough choice, especially because I don’t want either around my business. Perhaps I would fire Sirius. At least Ron is occasionally funny.
8. YOU’VE JUST FINISHED A BOOK IN WHICH YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER DIES. WHICH CHARACTER IS MOST LIKELY TO COMFORT YOU?
Tom Riddle/Voldemort OR Dobby
Is that even a question? I’m just so happy that Dobby is actually a choice. Imagine being comforted by Voldemort! Not that that would ever happen but still. His idea of comfort is probably to either go on a killing spree to cheer you up or kill you for being too whiney. Dobby is sweet in his own way and would probably pat your back and give you a pair of odd socks or something.
9. UGH, IT’S HIGH SCHOOL. WHO WOULD MOST LIKELY BE PART OF THE POPULAR CLIQUE?
Neville Longbottom OR Draco Malfoy
I wish it was Neville but in reality popular kids are often mean so I have no doubt that it would be Draco Malfoy.
10. THE DAY HAS ARRIVED – YOU’RE FINALLY A YEAR OLDER! WHO WOULD HAVE THE NERVE TO FORGET YOUR BIRTHDAY?
Ginny Weasley OR Albus Dumbledore
I honestly don’t think either would forget but I suppose Dumbledore always has a lot on his mind and you just can’t remember everything so I pick Dumbledore. Ginny would never forget a friend’s birthday. Ever.
11. YOU’VE JUST FOUND AN UPCOMING BOOKTUBE STAR! WHO WOULD IT MOST LIKELY BE?
Fred and George Weasley OR Cornelius Fudge
Just going with YouTube star I would definitely have to choose Fred and George Weasley. Could you imagine those two have a YouTube channel! It would be epic! They would probably do pranks, or perhaps demonstrations of their newest store arrival.
12. SLEEPOVER TIME! UNFORTUNATELY, YOU CAN ONLY INVITE ONE PERSON. WHO WOULD YOU INVITE?
Bellatrix Lestrange OR Arthur Weasley
Arthur Weasley, no doubt! No way I would ever let Bellatrix inside my house, are you mad?
13. BAM, YOU’RE PREGNANT. WHO IS THE FATHER/MOTHER?
Dolores Umbridge OR Vernon Dudley
NOOOOO! Since I’m a woman I really only have one choice but NOOOO! EW EW EW!!! I would definitely choose to be a single mother.
14. YOU’VE JUST WRITTEN A SUPER IMPORTANT TEXT. WHO WOULD SEE IT, BUT NOT REPLY?
Minerva McGonagall OR Nymphadora Tonks
Tonks, but only because she’s so absent-minded and clumsy. Chances are she saw it but lost her phone before she had a chance to reply. I don’t think McGonagall is the type to lose anything, let alone forget to reply to something important.
15. YOU’VE JUST WOKEN UP AND IT’S TIME FOR BREAKFAST. YOUR MUM’S BEEN REPLACED BY… WHO?!
Dudley Dursley OR Remus Lupin
Lupin to the rescue! I would love to have Lupin as my mom.. That sounded weird. You know what I mean.
So, that was that. It was fun even though some were very cringy or hard to choose between. If you want to do this tag yourself go ahead.
Pin for later!
Who would you have chosen to throw into a volcano: Lily or Hermione?
