I’d want to switch with Ginny so I could hang out with the awesome Weasley family. It’d be fun to play quidditch as well.

I would switch lives with Ron because he has an amazing family with brothers and a sister that may be annoying at times, are always there for him. Having Molly and Arthur as parents would be the coolest thing in the world.

I would trade with Fleur. She’s beautiful, brave, funny, and stands by Bill even after Greyback messes his face up, saying that she’s good-looking enough for both of them. Plus she gets to be a part of the Weasley family.

Lily Potter. It was short but full of love. Even from places I’m sure she didn’t expect…

I’d switch lives with Hermione Granger. I’m so at home cuddled up with a good book and I’d enjoy the challenges Hermione has faced throughout her journey. She is a strong female character that I greatly admire.

This is a pretty difficult question, but I’d most certainly have to go with Hermione. Not only is she insanely intelligent, she is a strong-headed person. She doesn’t just pout when Ron leaves even though he’s the love of her life, she fights on with Harry until he returns. Overall, she’s just a great person and would do anything for the one’s she loves. Hermione has the heart most of us wish we had, while also being so entirely powerful. She has the best friends anyone could ever ask for, and is a powerful witch for being a mudblood. She dedicates herself to everything she needs to accomplish and changes quite thoroughly throughout the novels and movies.

I would swap lives with Luna. She’s incredibly clever, truly understands the importance of friendship, is fine with herself exactly as she is, and has had incredible parents both of whom gave her only love and acceptance.

I’d want to swap with Ginny. She is loyal and brave, and has great magical ability. And I would love to be from such a big family!

I would swap lives with Hedwig! She got to travel all around the world and meet so many different characters. Plus, she got to watch Harry’s journey from the beginning and see him grow up with Ron and Hermione. I think that would be really special to witness, especially from the eyes of an owl!

I would switch lives with Hermione. She’s smart, can think straight when others panic, and she is cares about others, and she is brave and patient.

Gotta go with Luna.

I would swap lives with Ginny, every time. For one thing, she’s just plain pretty. I think that’s enough said on that subject. But I’d also love being Ginny because she’s such a strong, independent girl. She’s her own confident, unique person, even when she’s grown up in a poor family with six brothers. But that’s another great thing about being Ginny- she always knows there’ll be somebody there to back her up. Or maybe a lot of somebodies. From battling Death Eaters to helping hide a book, Ginny is ready to do anything for her friends, something I’m not sure if I could do myself. Ginny is a friend for life. Ginny also knows how to kick some serious Death Eater butt. I’ve always loved that about her.

I would say Luna Lovegood. (:
She’s so out of it, but so calm & down to Earth. She believes in things that some people don’t even dream about – I just love her & her personality. My favorite character defiantly, and the person I’d LOVE to trade places with.

I would happily swap lives with Luna because she sometimes lives in a world completely her own but when it counts she’s there when people need her. Luna is a loving and loyal friend who is always around for the people she loves. Luna is also a free-spirt who does what she pleases and doesnt care what anyone else thinks, and that is the way we should all be. Who we are and not change ourselfs for other people.

I would most definitely choose Ginny Weasley. She is sporty, loyal, brave, funny, pretty, and stands up for what she believes in. She complains about nothing, and is not the girly-girl that only a few people can [pretend to] love. She’s completely likeable, and if the world weren’t blinded by Galeons and Blood-Statuses, she would be the most popular girl at Hogwarts. She already kind of is, considering all the boys she’s dated! She’s the type of girl I always envy (but know i would never live up to). Plus, she gets to kiss Harry!
PS Leaky, this isn’t an entry I just commented for fun ;)
