sherina: Application

Here's my application!

1) Your name and age: Sherry, 29

2) What house do you belong in and why: I would likely get sorted into Ravenclaw because of the wittiness and intellectual factor, but I would be equally happy to be sorted into Slytherin so as to follow Snape around *drool*

3) Who is your favorite young character and why: Hermione because she's not ashamed to be so damn smart.

4) Who is your favorite adult character and why: Snape because he's not REALLY evil, he's just bitter and misunderstood. ;)

5) What is your favorite HP class and why: I would say Defence Against the Dark Arts because it seems to be the most exciting and would be useful to fight back against Voldemort.

6) What relationship intrigues you the most among the HP characters and why: I always loved the relationship between Harry and Sirius because it was the closest he had come to his parents; it gave him something happy to hold on to no matter what else was going on.

7) How do you refer to the Dark Lord and why: Voldemort of course; calling him you-know-who or any other variation only shows a fear of him which means even his name holds power over you.

8) Which DADA teacher was the best, and why: Lupin of course! Lupin taught them many things but was also a sly person teaching Harry the expecto patronus when he most needed it, giving him back the Marauder's map, etc. He was a good teacher but also didn't mind bending the rules for a good cause.

9) Which of the characters we already know would make the best new DADA teacher: Despite Dumbledore's apparent misgivings, Snape. He was THERE in the dark arts. Who better to teach how to fight against something than someone who was in the throes of it? It's like major companies hiring hackers to teach them how to beef up their network security!

10) Which scene from each book was your favorite and why: Book one - The chess scene; it was so dramatic and I could visualize it well and it was just well thought out. Book two - Fawkes arriving to help Harry, because it was a prime example that sometimes you can get help when you least expect it. Book three - When Harry realizes that he let loose the patronus, because it doesn't make sense and yet it does, in that endless loop of what if's involved in time travel. Book four - the fight against Voldemort when his parents help Harry, showing that good will fight against evil no matter the circumstances. Book five - The last fight between Harry, Voldemort, and Dumbledore, because it was just one more time when Voldemort couldn't beat Harry, not even at higher strengths.

11) Make a prophecy about Book 6 or 7: Snape's hatred for Harry will be further explained when we find out that Lily used to be the only one who was kind to Snape back in their teenage years. This led Snape to fall in love with her but she rejected him for James, the man that Snape most despised. As years went by, he saw all the good things he could have had in his own life had he been able to be with her. He resents Harry for existing at all because it's a constant reminder that instead of being blissfully happy, he was drowning in the dark world while James had the only person who was ever good to Snape.
