If "Pottermore" Were Real

So Pottermore finally opened. No big deal. Not that I was whining on Twitter about having to wait for it to open or anything.

It's a pretty fun site, for what it is (Although I feel like they need to change their target demographic from 13-year-olds to those in their mid-twenties). But It connects loser Harry Potter fans like myself to the closest thing to the books as possible. It makes it a tiny bit more real.

I'm glad it's not, though. First of all, if it were real, I'd be a twenty-something-year-old first year, and my name alone would get me kicked out of Hogwarts.



The name SkullMarauder doesn't quite put people at ease. It definitely doesn't help my case that I am carrying around a trunk-full of some suspicious and possibly incriminating items that I've found and kept.



I mean, there are probably plenty of situations where most of those things could be used. None of which are conducive to being seen as anything other than a serial killer.

And just like in Pottermore, I would probably try to get rid of my items by seemingly the only means possible. Gifting them to a friend.




Actually, I'm probably going to do that anyway.

I definitely just sent Slimy Seaweed to my friend, Gwenny.

Gwen said...

I was totally just TROLLED by some DWEEB sending me slimy seaweed on Pottermore. Seriously. (Heh... love you, Moll!)

Marizabeth said...

This is true. And hilarious.

Jacob said...

Perfect! I've been hoping you would have something to say ever since I sent in my Hogwarts application last week!

Camilla said...

SO jealous I don't get the seaweed gift. Whatevs. It just means I'll keep the rock cakes I was gonna send you. Sucker.

Pottermore is really fond of the numbers 2, 6,7 and 0. I have the SAME configuration. And so do a couple of my friends. Though with a name like CentaurCloak, times look tough.

Your illustrations are fantastic. Put me down as a Colin Creevey to your Harry Potter. Heh heh.

I'm constantly feeling insanely jealous of the people with really cool sounding names. I'm stuck with WitchGlow. Things could be better. Amazing drawings gurl. x

Olivia said...

I'm pretty sure this comment will stand out as the only one from a random person and someone who doesn't know you in real life. I'm a closet fan of your blog. I also have friend requested you on Pottermore. Rosebalde112? That's me. The stranger on the internet. I promise I'm not a creepy old pedophile. =D

Sara said...

Agreed. Totally just stalked you on Pottermore. My friend has the user name "PurpleRain" though. Thanks, Pottermore for the Prince references!

hahaha I love it! I also love that's I've stolen things out of people's dorms and even their bags--wtf kind of game is this? And I got the library and take books and keep them. Yeah. Pottermore teaches you to steal.

Sigrid said...

Which house are you in? :D

ingridstrand said...

My name became FlameGhost (and of course some random digits included). Like you I've stolen everything I stumble upon and give it away to random friends in my friendlist. Maybe I'm born to be a thief beacause I'm so excited for the next book and more things to steal. Go Ravenclaw by the way!

press release submission sites Internet is vast and there are many press release writing companies that you can run across when looking for the one that would suit you; however finding a trustworthy service is not easy, because there is no guarantee that you will not be cheated out of your money. Of course, you can ask your friends and colleagues to suggest you a trustworthy press release writing service or the list of press release sites, but majority of them have never heard or used one, so your guess is as good as theirs.

law school admissions With all the competition for spots in law school it may seem impossible to distinguish yourself from the mass. Fortunately, or unfortunately, law schools give you a chance in your admission to speak directly to them and prove that you’re prime for success in a law school environment and will represent them well; this chance is the admissions essay.

astronomy paper In short works like stories or plays you might look for words or actions that are repeated throughout the text. If a poem uses a lot of nature imagery or the characters in a play keep repeating the same phrase over and over, it's a good bet that those words are key to understand what that work is about.
