Today is day twelve of my challenge to post each day about Harry Potter.  Quotes, books, films and silliness.

As part of my challenge I found out about this fun discussion event called Hype or Like over on Rant and Rave About Books – check it out here if you’re interested in taking part.  And here’s the link to the Goodreads page to link up with everyone.

The Discussion this week is:

Imagine it’s the apocalypse, whatever magic is left in the Wizarding World is slowly diminishing, and you need to assemble a team to help you survive. Which 5 characters would you choose for your team, what roles would they play (i.e. Team Leader, Most Cunning, Most Skilled, etc.), and how would they help you survive? You can do whatever you want with this topic. Get creative and have fun with it.

My famous five are as follows:

1. Kickass Magic – Dobby is like super magical – he kicks big butt.  He’s just pure magic!  Yep, yep, yep – if anyone can save the world of magic it’s Dobby.


2. Fun factor – The Weasley twins – because everyone needs a good old belly laugh every now and again.  I love these two boys!  I think they’d be great on my team because they relieve the tension and also bring creativity to the table.  Bit of a cheat this one because I get two for the price of one!

3. The brains of the outfit:  Hermione.  Because there’s virtually nothing that this resourceful young witch can’t find out about when she puts her mind to it.


4. The brawn to go with the brains – has got to be Hagrid – he’s always been a larger than life character and one that can just steal your heart because he’s a giant but he’s a huge softie!  And, he brings with him a whole bunch of help with all his critters, huge dogs, dragons, enormous spiders (which, ew – but even so – so long as they’re on my team) and Buckbeak! Get on my team now!


5. The glue that holds it together: Minerva McGonagall.  Cool and collected.  Come on – she can turn into a cat in the blink of an eye.  She’s never phased. She taught Ron to dance – whether he wanted to know or not!  Told Moody not to transform the students!  Stood up to Umbridge.  Was there until the end – and nobody beats Minerva!  She is a cool cookie.

    This is also a great team. How did I forgot about Dobby?! I think everyone is going to have Hermione 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I wanted everyone – I have to be honest – I absolutely hummed and ahed about my choices and then as soon as I visited everyone else I was nearly throwing myself on the floor with wanting their lists! Sirius, Molly, Luna, Dumbledore, Snape! The list goes on!

    Love that you picked Hagrid like I did 😊 Also love your choice of Dobby, Weasley twins and McGonagall. Such great choices! See, now I want them on my team too haah. 😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – this is exactly my problem! I have all the wants and everyone has to be on my team (not that I’m greedy, no, no!)
      Lynn 😀

    Great choices, Lynn! I would like Snape and Bellatrix on my team. The latter one must be watched very closely, better have her on friendly terms. 😉

    • @lynnsbooks

      I did think about somebody from the ‘dark side’ and Bellatrix would be perfect and of course I just love Snape. Basically, I pretty much wanted everyone on my team!

    Haha, you know what I thought of when I saw your post? Forget the apocalypse, this would probably be the same team I’d go with if I was putting together a heist! DThe twins can be my safe-crackers and explosive experts, Dobby can be the inconspicuous scout, Hermione the mastermind, Hagrid the Muscle, McGonagal the team mother who keeps everyone in line.

  5. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    That’s an amazing team! Now all they need is a costume – Avengers style – to make them stand out! Although I can almost see Ms. McGonagall’s scornful look at the very idea, and hear her disapproving comments… 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, imagine McGonagall in yellow spandex! Mmm, not gonna happen. 😀

  6. jessicabookworm

    Great choices – I would definitely have Dobby, Hermione and the Weasley twins on my team too. I would also want Lupin 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      I know – I also wanted Lupin! Such a great character = plus you get a two for one because he comes with his own inner wolf!
      Lynn 😀

  7. Donna

    Dobby! Great choices!
