Besides the obvious choices of having magical abilities/an acceptance letter to Hogwarts/a functioning wand, I would want my own Phoenix. He’d be able to heal me and my loved ones if we were injured, fly us around, and sing awesome songs. =)

I would do anything for a magic wand. Maple and dragonheartstring 11 1/2". The only problem is I live in Chanda. Can I still enter?

There is so many things I want, a wand, my acceptance letter, (the owl just got lost! i swear thats what happened!) a racing broom to name a few. I guess I’m going to have to settle for HPA’s teeshirts and fair-trade chocolate frogs instead.

It would definitely have to be either a wand or house elf, a liberated one of course, although access to Harry’s Gringots account would be great too!!!

Either a Portkey because I love to travel or the Invisibility Cloak so I could play pranks on people! :D
