Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Uncorked Thoughts and Lunar Rainbows. The idea is to get Harry Potter fans together and discuss our favorite things about the series; be it a favorite moment, character, magical item, spell, quote or object from the books, films or J.K Rowling herself.
This week is: What magical creature would you like living in your house?
I think there are two sides to this question: Which magical creature would you like as a pet? and Which magical creature would you prefer as a housemate/roommate? I’m going to answer both questions separately.
For the pet question I’d choose a phoenix. They’re my favourite magical creatures in the Harry Potter series and I love Fawkes.
I’d want something non-destructive so that ruled out a lot of the magical creatures featured in the series. I was going to say a Kneazle but I felt like that was an easy answer because they’re basically just cats. Also, I could have said a pygmy puff but they’re barely magical creatures. They’re just balls of pink or purple fluff.
For the roommate/housemate question I’d choose a werewolf. They’d probably be the best humanoid creature to share your house with because they only change when the moon is full. Plus, Remus Lupin was a werewolf which means that they’re not bad people (except Greyback and his band of merry murderers). As long as you lived near a forest or something they’d be fine during the full moon too.
That’s it for this week. Which creature would you like living in your house?
