Its hard for me to say who I would most readily swap lives with….. I would probably swap lives with Tonks. Shes my favorite character in the series and I love how shes not afraid to go after what she wants and never gives up. I love her easy going personality and the loyalty she has towards her friends. Most of all I love how shes not perfect, she has her flaws and that makes her seem more real.

I would swap lives with Alicia Spinnet. It would be awesome to play Quidditch, but I don’t want any of the drama of being a “main” character. Plus, other than participating in the final battle, no one would be trying to kill me. :)

I would swap lives with Luna simply because she has learned to appreciate everything in life, from butter beer bottle corks to the exquisite rareness of a true and lifelong friend. I want to appreciate the magic in all that is around me..from the small and simple to the great.

I would swap lives with Luna Lovegood. She is a free-spirit full of wonder and curiosity for all things – not just things that can be seen. She’s got one amazing parent who would do anything for her (Even frame Harry Potter!!! ;D). Luna is like the side of my personality that is allowed to live a free and open life without being held back by anything. She may be a little “Loony”, but she is my favorite :)

I would like to swap lives with Tonks. Not because she is a Hufflepuff [since I am a proud Gryffindor] but because she was in the Order of the Phoenix and got to marry my favorite character, Remus Lupin.

I think I’d like to trade places with any of the Ravenclaw students (Luna would be fun). I feel like we learn the least about them in the series, and I would like to learn more about them.

I would say Hermione but I think my life would be pretty much the same since I’m in grad school and spend most of my time writing papers and worrying about exams. So, I think I would swap lives with McGonagall, so I could be a professor already, haha. But, I would want to be a younger version of McGonagall, because I don’t want to wish my life away.

I’d probably swap with Tonks for a couple of days, but obviously before she died… The whole changing your appearance trick is pretty awesome, plus I really admire her independence.

I would be Hermione so I would end up with my favorite ginger (:
And because she’s a very understanding person who can always tell what’s going on in people’s minds without them ever saying anything. Not to mention I’d pretty much be a genius.

I would switch with Hermione for her brain power.

Posted by Mistress Yujiyo on June 25, 2011, 10:01 PM report to moderator

I would switch with Luna, shes amazing and shes always there for her friends, she fights for whats right and shes different. You don’t get a lot about luna so it would be cool to be her

I would swap lives with Ron. He is laid back, funny, has a wonderful family, and ends up marrying the person of his dreams. He has a temper and jealousy issues but if I were him I could work on that :)

haha i would honestly say harry, the journey thru his life amazes me, i love and want my life to be worth something, i need my life to mean something. everything harry does is so critical and effects everyone around him, hes so loyal, and different. he is always tested, like my self, just not with magic. however i am a girl, so i guess i would choose a girl, i would choose Hermione, i love everything about her, we have alot of the same qualities as well. she loves school and learning and dedicates her self to becoming the best she can be.
