  1. Sorry I keep being awful about post rounds. I need to set reminders apparently. Only three battles left, the first of these will be @Hoiditthroughthegrapevine as Vyre against @Matrim's Dice as Preservation. Should be plenty for both of you to pick on and mercilessly roast about! This duel will end on Saturday, the 16th, at 8:00 am CST. I know I will be late with this one if any roasts are posted on Saturday as I will be at a speech meet, but I should be able to get to it the same day still.

    Strong agreement. Alcatraz was my first Sanderson book when I was in 5th grade. I barely looked at the author, but mom was working her way through Warbreaker and Stormlight when I was in middle school, so I eventually found Reckoners and kinda fell off the cliff from there.


  3. I spent about 3 years in a HP Minecraft server called Knockturn Alley. My name was Tillie Stevenson, I was muggleborn, a Ravenclaw, 2nd year. I was also a chaser on the quidditch team. I spent hours practicing spells. The only reason I stopped was because I was on a school laptop and the school switched to iPads (which suck). I constantly want to rejoin the server.


    I also converted four of my cousins (13, 10ish, 10ish, and 7 years old) to Harry Potter and I am considered the chief nerd in my family. When any of them have questions they come to me. 


    For the release of Cursed Child I begged my mom to let me go to what I dubbed “Nerd Fest,” which was the release party. She refused because I had to show sheep the next day, but I continue to reference it to this day.


    I have named numerous pets after characters. I have had Helga, Hedwig, and Umbridge as sheep. I can’t even count how many cats I have named after characters, but I normally have 1-3 litters per year of 3-5 kittens. When I was younger at least 2 kittens out of each litter was named after someone. (Now most are after Sanderson and we have less cats). There was one year where we had a good 27 cats (apparently it was a fertile year) and at least 10 were Potter names. (Don’t worry, I only have 4 cats now. I’m a little less crazy).


  4. Moving out of lore a little bit, I reread Harry Potter, the entire series including Beetle, Fantastic Beasts, and Quidditch Through the Ages, every summer. I have no less than 3 Pottermore Wizarding World accounts, I have reset all of them at least twice so I could take the tests again. I have gotten Ravenclaw every single time except for one, which was Gryffindor. My wand is almost exactly the same as Voldemort’s, yew wood with Phoenix core, 13 and 1/4 inches (the length sometimes varies). I’ve had lots of patronuses, most are some kind of ruminant. I’ve had 2 Ilvermorny houses, Pukwudgie and Thunderbird.

    Hermione’s patronus is an otter because it is in the same family as weasels, and she loves a Weasley. The Weasleys keep trying to prove that they aren’t purebloods by claiming that random famous muggles are related to them, but this makes everyone not believe them even more. Luna’s patronus is a rabbit and Cho’s is a swan. 

    Build a little with Ron’s patronus, which is relatively common knowledge. Ron’s is a Jack Russel Terrior, which are used to hunt weasels, otters, that kind of thing. This symbolizes Ron chasing Hermione. (Now I’m in English class with symbolism)


  6. The golden snidget is a small, magical golden bird that used to be set loose at quidditch games before the invention of the snitch. The players wouldn’t try to catch the bird, the spectators could win prize money if they were the ones to capture the snidget. The bird is small, about the size of a snitch, and very fast. It has wings that can rotate to change directions quickly.

    I don't know anything about how the movies were made. The world lore, in other words.

    Wizards (the older ones who have spent more time in the wizarding world), don’t like to wear pants. They wear robes and only wear pants if they must.
