Thats a tough one. Its not something ive actually thyought about or cared for. Probably with Hermione. I love how independent and smart she is.

I have to be goofy and choose Hermione simply because she ends up with Ron (one of my favorite characters)! In addition, she is very free willed. She is also intelligent beyond belief and very brave. She is a very strong character, and I admire her for that.

I would switch with Voldemort. Yes, he is the bad guy. But seeing things from his snake eyes would be interesting. Plus I’ve always wondered if Voldemort gets the same psychic connection that Harry does throughout the 4-7 book. It would be interesting to get down with my bad Voldemort side.

I would want to be Tonks. She is really funny and can change shapes. I like her attitude and I have the same patronus as her. I wouldn’t want to die, but it wouldn’t be so bad because it was to take down Voldemort. When I go to camp, my name will be Tonks.

I think I would trade with McGonagall. I’ve always wanted to be a teacher, and I just think she’s really cool. Strict, but cool.

Honestly, I’d switch places with Dobby. I think he is amazing. He is never bitter, always loyal, and so different than other house elves. I admire his spirit so much…I remember reading how he went from house to house asking people to hire him until Dumbledore took him in. He loves socks too, so that’s always good.

I would definitely say Luna. She is a very confident person and doesn’t seem to care much about what other people think about her. She is incredibly loyal to her friends, which is a trait I admire. She has been through difficult times and even though she is a strong person, she admits that it saddens her to think about them.

That’s a really tough question. I think I would have to choose Ginny. She’s such a strong character (in the books anyway…) and it would be great to be part of the Weasley family.

I’d have to say Albus Dumbledore. He’s a good person,and even though he did some not so great things in his teenage years,I like what he did in his later years. Deafting Grindelwald, discovering the 7 uses of dragon blood,and using the elder wand in the right way. I like his personality. He is caring,gentle, but powerful at the same time. He really trusts people like Snape who are very hard to trust. And even though his fascination of the Hallows brought about his sister Arina’s death and caused him to have a black hand and a planned death, he was a great man with great purposes. I have this personality. He was mighty and I’m just like him. Long live Albus Percivil Wilfred Brian Dumbledore

The charcter I would switch places with is Mr. Ollivander. Even though you only really see and hear about him in the first and seven books and movies, he is just that interesting and mysterious person. You don’t know when he went to Hogwarts or what house he was in or even what teachers taught their. If i was him, I would know all of that. What is also really interesting about him is his job. He gets to make and sell wands. Each wand is individually, hand-made and none of them are the same. He also gets to see all the new faces come into his shop and try out wands until it picks them. His job seems so fun because I would love to help out people and watch them to see which wand choses them. So, Mr. Ollivander would be the character I would switch with.

It would for sure be Ginny. Even though I’m a guy in the muggle world, I’ve always wanted to see the world from the witch point of view, not the wizard.

I would need to say Luna Lovegood because…well just because. She isn’t a main character, and isn’t someone everyone loves. She’s an independent young women and yet she maintains a positive outlook and an ability to offer insight into less concrete topics.

I would swap lives with Hermione because she is extremely smart, she is part of the Trio, she is the brains behind the Trio (and saves the three of them numerous times), she eventually marries Ron (I love Ron!), she has faced a lot of prejudices for being a muggleborn (among many other obstacles) and is still willing to be herself and fight for the right cause, and she stands up for what she believes in (like S.P.E.W. and the D.A.).

Voldemort raised his wand again and whirled it through the air. A streak of what looked like molten silver hung shining in the wand's wake. Momentarily shapeless, it writhed and then formed itself into a gleaming replica of a human hand, bright as moonlig
