What’s a Patronus?
In the words of Professor Lupin from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, a Patronus is,
“…kind of Anti-Dementor – a guardian which acts as a shield between you and the Dementor.” As well as, “…a kind of positive force, a projection of the very things that the Dementor feeds upon – hope, happiness, the desire to survive – but it cannot feel despair, as real humans can, so the Dementors can’t hurt it.”
-Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

Fleur Delacour is actually a student from Beauxbatons Academy of Magic, not Hogwarts. Does she get a pass? Oui ou non?
Isn’t that Hermione’s wand?
Taylor is our resident Ravenclaw.
Or is she a Hufflepuff?! She did tell me she’s taking the sorting quiz again. Maybe Taylor clears it up somewhere on her Instagram or iCHIVE
The Cursed Child? Who let that in here?!
I thought they destroyed all of the time-turners?!
Well if it isn’t Helga Hufflepuff, one of the four founders of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
I’m a guy who unapologetically got into Harry Potter in his 30s. Audiobooks are my go-to for falling asleep and the series tops several lists of “best audiobooks of all-time.” I gave it a go and found them to be an enjoyable escape from reality. Most people guess that, like the witch above, I’m part of Slytherin House.
Nope. As I’m sure you’re dying to know, I got sorted into Gryffindor House with my home-witch Hermione Granger. My Patronus is a King Cobra. My wand is made of black walnut wood with a dragon heartstring core, 13″ and supple flexibility. What about you?
