Harry Potter #8

This is a meme hosted by me here at my blog :).The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/ films/ J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! I will be picking a topic within HP for us to focus on each week and then if anyone wants to take part feel free! All I ask is to link back here, to my blog :). There is now a full list of the topics to come here.

This weeks topic is: Your favorite magical way to travel!

This one I found difficult to narrow down. I mean with so many choices, from broomsticks to the Knight Bus, floo powder to portkeys but I finally decided on apparition. How many times have we all been sat around and just wished we could have gotten to our destination just that little bit quicker. I remember a few summers ago on the train up to Yorkshire (6 and a half hours from Wales!) texting my boyfriend wishing I could apparate. Obviously, like everything in the magical world it has its downsides. With this one it's splinching. Yikes. People leaving body parts behind and the state of Ron after the big escape in the final book? Shudder. 


  1. Yay we picked the same cause it the best one, ob-------------viously! :P Man I wish I could apparate/teleport on daily basis. Especially when I get up super early to catch 2 buses to school. If I could apparate I could sleep 2 hours longer!

    P.s.. No entries before 1.30 pm :X

  2. Fred and George made apparition so much cooler than anyone else. & hey, portkeys can be redirected by DeathEaters, and you can't have laryngitis or a speech impediment and expect to get anywhere with floo powder ;-)

  3. It seems really cool, but it slightly scares me! :)


Please leave a comment, I love reading each and every one of them :).
