Favourite Unforgivable Curse?
FAVOURITE? You can ask questions... Well it MUST be Avada-Kedavra, because it's funny when fanfic authors play games with wizards minds by quoting "Abraca----"
Favourite mode of wizard transportation?
Teleportation! Err, of course I mean Apparition.
Arthur, but almost as much i like Ginny, when she doesn't get in the way of H/H :D
Favourite non-human Hogwarts resident?
Dobby, i guess
I'll go the cowards way and simply say: Lilly and James :)
Biggest surprise of the series?
the "Bitch" scene, Molly killing of Bellatrix Lestrange...
Biggest letdown of the series?
I'm tempted to write "The Deathly Hallows", but then, there's also good stuff in that book.
One character you wish lived?
Almost none who died where i wouldn't wish (s)he'd lived! Except for the Deatheaters of course.
I'll go with: I'd wish JKR would have done something with the Longbottoms at the end of the story, i cherish every fanfiction where they get better even to only just some degree, cause it's sooo wrong to have them in this state when so many dirty bastards live happy lives.
Moment that will always make you cry?
too much to write down... Harrys Parents in the mirror Erised (and the photo albume), the destroyed broomstick, Buckbeaks death, Snape ruining the rehabilitation of Sirius Black..., the mysterious stranger casting Expecto Patronum, HARRY casting Expecto Patronum for the first time for real, Remus Lupin leaving Hogwarts again, Cedrics Death, the cursed feather of this... toad person, Arthur Weasley getting bitten by Nagini live before Harrys Eyes, Sirius Black dying, all the bits and pieces about harrys parents we get to know, the scene in Voldemorts grotto with the undead in the water... and as good as every single death scene or report from TDH.
Yes, i'm so close to the water. But then it never stopped the books from being enjoyable.
Ron/Hermione or Harry/Hermione?
Harry and Hermione! Narf what a question.... Coz sometimes it's more fun to be the DILUSIONAL ONE!
Which house would you want to be in?
Sparkly Poo? I really don't know... i think i'd have traits for all except the slimybastards Den aka Slytherin... and even if i'd like the guys in Gryffindor i might be better fitted for Ravenclaw or even Hufflepuff... Hey, that's not as bad as it sounds *huffs and puffs*
Would you ever enter the Triwizard tournament?
No way, Jose! That's dangerous crap you're talking about... O.o
Do you think you would enjoy being a witch/wizard?
I might enjoy the possibilities a life as a wizard would pose... but as a witch? nah, i'll pass...
1) If forced to pick an era, would you chose early, middle or later Discworld, for preferred reading?
most of my really favoured books are later in the series so later
2) Favourite all-time Discworld character?
3) Favourite non-Discworld Pratchett book?
I've only ever read Good Omens outside of the Discworld but that is of course a favourite!
4) Favourite Discworld book featuring the Witches?
I don't remember having read anything really featuring them. There might have been some scenes with them, but no real "starring" volume.
5) Favourite Discworld book featuring the City Watch?
Guards! Guards! and Nightwatch are tied for this. Monstrous Regiment and Feet of Clay also come to my mind.
6) Favourite Discworld book featuring Moist / Rincewind?
7) Favourite book featuring a non-recuring character?
Soul Music? The Truth? Small Gods also is a good candidate...
8) Do you have a least-favourite Discworld book?
can't really think of it, but my notes on the Goodreads tell me it must be Thud! followed by Jingo... and i'm rather the vimes fan other than this O.o
9) If you were introducing someone to the Discworld series, where would you suggest they start?
As i feel Pratchett has much improved since the early books i might even suggest the Moist Duology GoPo and MaMo, but I've started with Mort and it worked so that's also fair game and as i really like Guards! Guards! that's also quite decent as a start. Don't go for early wizards or witches, i haven't read anything to recommend them as starting points...
10) Favourite Discworld placename?
Fourecks? Jellybejby? Uberwald?
11) Favourite Discworld concept? (L-Space, "It's a million to one shot..." etc)
I think i'll take the Pantheon... Gods need their believers more than the believers need gods... PLUS there's a hogfather and a tooth fairy! :D so you can bring to live everything you truly believe, that's a concept i'm fond of!
12) Do you have a favourite Discworld Quote?
What can the Harvest hope for if not the care of the reaper man!
There are many great quotes in the books but this one must topp them all off!
13) Do you prefer Death or the Patrician?
Is there a difference other than STYLE OF SPEECH? Tie!
14) Mrs Cake or the Bursar?
the Bursar. I don't even remember who Mrs Cake is supposed to be O.o
15) The Luggage or the Librarian?
16) Greebo or Nobby?
Nobby. When talking animal, go for the whole trade, buddy!
17) Trolls or Dwarves?
I think i prefer dwarves for their ingenuity and the fun their genderproblems pose. trolls are nice to have in a story, but often their brains run too hot for my gusto.
18) Just how much do you like the Discworld series, anyway?
on a scale from 0 to ten? probably a 7.9954329. It's at least part of my top ten "universes"...
