Also, I forgot to add, when I read the books when I was younger, I felt like I could relate to her the most because not only did I feel like I looked similar to her description in the books (brown, bushy hair and brown eyes) but also I loved school and learning new things.

I would love to switch with Ginny. She is quiet and knows exactly what to say when something needs to be said. Ginny love all her friends and family; all of whom are AMAZING! Ginny starts out as “Ron’s little sister” but then becomes her own person and a force to be recon with. Her room is a reflection of her personality. Bright and full of sunshine. Ginny becomes Harry’s hope and strength. She is what gets Harry to do things that must be done to keep her safe, even though she is a good fighter. I hope to inspire a guy like that one day.

I’d switch with Charlie Weasley in a heartbeat! Working with dragons, hey, just seeing dragons would be so amazing. But if as a girl, I have to pick a girl, probably Tonks.

Hermione. As a muggleborn, she had one of the most exciting transitions into the wizarding world. Plus, I already love books and learning, so it wouldn’t be such a huge change in personality.

Honestly? Anyone! For so long I’ve lived in the world that authors have created for me. Worlds of magic and amazing creatures and immense beauty. Of fairy tales and happy endings. I would give anything to trade places with someone in Harry Potter. Most of all, i think I’d like to trade with Ginny :) She’s in the perfect position! Shes got Harry as a partner, Ron as a brother and Hermione as an in-law! I could think of a better situation :)

If I could swap lives with any of the characters it would probably be Ron and Hermione’s daughter Rose. It would be super wicked to have them as parents because I would have Hermione to help me with my studies but then I could also be daddy’s little girl amd have Ron teach me how to play Quidditch. Plus Harry and Ginny would then be my uncle amd aunt and who wouldn’t want the Boy Who Killed Voldemort as his or her uncle?!?!

Luna. I love Hermione and all but sometimes, being bossy is too much. Just go with flow and let the wind take you where it takes you. Luna is smart and always calm. And even though she’s a bit weird, she still has many loyal friends. Luna really seems to know what shes doing even though the nargles are everywhere. I love Luna. I would so trade lives with her even if that means having a crazy dad.

I would definitely swap with Luna. I feel this connection with her, both of us are pretty outcast, live alone with father after untimely death of mother, so on and so forth. The fact that I like me for me means that I would be happy to trade with someone in a similar situation. Also, I admire Luna’s ability to not give a hoot.

I would most readily swap lives with Molly Weasley. She is dedicated to doing what is right, lives at the Burrow (how fun would that be?!) and best of all, she gets to share her life with seven wonderful children and a kind and funny husband. Though there are characters (like Ginny) whose lives I might like more to have (pro quidditch? Harry’s wife? Heck yes!), I think honestly I would have the least trepidation about switching lives with Molly. Though she lives through great fear and tragedy, she is surrounded by abundant sources of JOY.

Ginny Weasley!!!

I would most readily switch lives with Ginny, and not for the obvious reasons. ;) I think It would be awesome to live in a big family, coming from a relatively small one in which I rarely, if ever, meet anyone outside my immediate family. I’d have loved to grow up in a large family, seeing different people all the time, and having a bunch of older siblings. I wouldn’t mind being the youngest either, because even though she’s the youngest, In my opinion, she’s the strongest of the bunch. Plus, I’d get the opportunity to play Quidditch for Gryffindor as a Chaser, which would be absolutely Ah-mazing! :)

I would love to switch lives with Luna just because she takes the magical world to a whole new level. Seeing life through her eyes would be amazing. She seems very perceptive about things even though everyone thinks she’s distant.

I would definitely want to swap lives with Hermione. Not only does she have the two greatest friends in the world, but she is so ambitious and logical. I’m a lot more easy going than she is and I’m not nearly as quick to recall small details, so I think it would be a nice change of pace. Also, I absolutely love Ron, (he’s my favorite character) so no complaints there. Mostly I think I would enjoy her sense of purpose and extreme organizational skills. I’m never has prepared as she is! She is a strong and brave person who is very easy to admire. We also already have the same birthday :)

"And there's a picture, Weasley!" said Malfoy, flipping the paper over and holding it up. "A picture of your parents outside their house -- if you can call it a house! Your mother could do with losing a bit of weight, couldn't she?"
