Harry Potter Blogfest - Who Would Be Your Mates?

Choose which two characters would be YOUR best mates at Hogwarts. Then, all you have to do is write a fun little piece on why and what kind of trio you would be. 300 - 350 words.


I'm a bookworm, just like Hermione. That's how we met, actually -- in the library. She had fallen asleep amidst a pile of books, her head resting upon the open pages of New Theory of Numerology. I noticed that her copy of The Monster Book of Monsters had bitten its way through the belt that bound its cover and was nibbling her hair. I grabbed Hogwarts, a History and whacked that Monster Book into submission. Hermione woke up, of course, and was so grateful I'd saved the rest of her hair that she generously offered to help me with my homework. We ended up bonding over our mutual love of ancient runes and have been good friends ever since.

Incidentally, I also met Luna in the library. It bothered me that she was reading a book upside down so I attempted to show her the right way to hold it. She informed me that she was, in fact, deciphering a hidden code! Due to my love of numbers I've always been interested in codes and ciphers, so I sat down beside her and together we deciphered the message hidden (upside down) within the pages of Flesh Eating Trees of the World. Turns out there was a major conspiracy going on where Dark Wizards sent these pot plants to members of the Ministry of Magic and the pot plants just snapped the unlucky people up in a few mouthfuls! Hermione actually helped us fix that one (we needed some super brain power to get inside the Dark Wizards' headquarters and take them down), but that is another story!

Thanks so much, Michael of In Time, for hosting this blogfest :-)

Hi, Rachel,

I loved how you and Hermione met... No better place than the library. Unusual set of circumstance though... lol. Great idea using the Monster Book of Monsters.

Luna is a wonderful character and although spacey she is incredibly endearing.

I enjoyed your entry... Thanks for joining in on all the fun.

Hi Rachel. Good choice with Hermione and Luna. Both very different of course, but great friends. I love your description.

Margo Benson said...

I love the nibbling hair moment in the library! A great trio!

Laurel Garver said...

Smart girls rule! And your meet-up stories are fabulous. I love the hidden conspiracy story you uncover (and the book title in which you find it!). Clever and creative!

You and I should join forces! Hermione and I, along with Ginny, did some intense research and plotting in the library as well. Love how Luna discovered that rune cover-up!

Carol Riggs said...

Ha, great! Hermione is a natural choice for writers, I think. Always inquisitive and learning. :)

Happy Wednesday!

Abby Minard said...

Rachel, I love it! What a perfect combination the three of you make!

I picked Luna and Hermione too! Great choice ;) Only instead of reading with them, we partied with boys.

Donea Lee said...

Hermione and Luna would be great friends to have!! Both wickedly clever gals in their own special ways. :)

Oh, very cute little tale of you and your friends! I should PROBABLY tell you that in the US, pot plants are marijuana plants (we would use potted plants for what you mean)--unless you really are using carnivorous marijuana, in which case, thee are some brilliant conspiracy theories to add... Anyway, I think this may very well be an American English versus British English thing...

I did love your tale though!

Madeleine said...

I love it very original and set in the library is very clever too. :O)

Rachel Morgan said...

Hahahahahaha!!! Okay, how about we make it REAL pot and have the marijuana eating people?!

The Golden Eagle said...

I love your entry! :D Luna and Hermione were my picks, too--they're awesome characters.

Found you from the A-Z Challenge, it sounds like it’s going to be so much fun (with a bit of stress thrown in) and I can’t wait to get started!! I’m now following your blog on GFC and I hope you have a chance to check out my blog.
