Like to switch with Mrs. Weasley. She has a method to her mayhem that works. Always dreamed of being able to twitch my nose or cast a spell to have my work effortlessly done. Although she has more children then I do. The Weasley’s aren’t millionaires but know that love is more important then money. She has a lot on her shoulders and manages with necessities. Mrs. Weasley knows how to help someone feel at home no matter the circumstance.

Honestly, I would want to trade Ives with Severus Snape. I feel that, besides Harry, he was the most important character in the book, and the most beneficial to the war. Everything he lived his life for came back and helped Harry at the end to the war when HP went to fight Voldie. Snape was such a complex character, and we rarely got to see a different side of him other than his “mean potions master” side. Jo gave him one of the most dramatic deaths in the series, and afterword showed us way he was the way he was throughout the series. The way his character was weaved through the books. I feel that it would give a rare chance into the life of one of the most interesting characters.

I would probably have to say Ginny Weasley. She’s smart and funny. And I would just love to be apart of the Weasley family. There whole dynamic is wonderful. Also, I love her attitude, she doesn’t take crap from people, especially Ron, and I would love to have that much confidence in myself. She is probably one of my top 3 favorite characters in the book. Also, who wouldn’t want to marry Harry Potter??

I would swap lives with Hermione, no doubt. Why? She is my favorite character, and always has been right from the beginning! I think in any situation she has been in in the seven Harry Potter books, I would fit in! I am right now, a big know-it-all, very supportive, very grounded (I can lead Harry and Ron into the correct direction), and I’m also a quick thinker! The way Hermione used her brain in Deathly Hallow amazed me, and if I was in her position, I know I would do the almost same thing! Besides the fact that I’m a lot like her, I really want to switch lives with her because, I love action and adventure and she seems to be part of some of that (but not too much, I do need a break once in a while!) and she seems to be the brains, knowing when and what to do and how to do it! And, I would love to see what life is like as one of the trio!

I would have to say Ginny, because she has a lot of bravery, and she’s not afraid to fight back against evil. She believes anything can be done if you try hard enough, and that is a really good quality. She wants to fight, and doesn’t like being told to wait. She has had an amzing adventure, and i would want my life to mean something, and her whole life has meant something important, and she always believes in hope. She knew she would have to wait for love, but eventually it found its way to her, and she never gave up, she always hoped.

Hermione…because if I had to choose between being breathtakingly beautiful, perfectly clever, or angelically good, I would choose all 3 – and she is!

This is a easy one for me. I would be Molly Weasel. She has taken in Harry and has treated him like he is one of her own son’s and is willing to protect him at any cost. I love Molly she is a great and caring person and mother.

I would want to swap lives with Luna, because although bad things happen to her in the seventh book, she always manages to be so positive about things. Imagine seeing life through her eyes? Everything is so beautiful and magical and pure to her, and I would do anything to be able to just whole-heartedly believe in wonderful things as easily as she can.
She is not quick to judge anyone, and I believe she sees the best in everyone, no matter what. You never hear her hating on anyone throughout the books. I think the world would be a better place if we could all see it through Luna’s eyes, at least a little bit. She is so honest, yet trusting, and I think she has qualities everyone could benefit from, and I’d love to experience them for at least a day. There is so much to learn from her.

I would want to swap lives with Luna. She is outgoing, crazy and just all around fun. She is also unique, completely unique. She is basically the person I would aspire to be!

Fred or George Weasley! I would love to be hilarious and play jokes on people all the time…and also be clever about it.

I would most readily swap lives with McGonagall. In some ways, she has a limited role in the books becuase Harry sees her only at Hogwarts as a general rule. However, she gets to meet and influence all of the children of the wizarding world, and prepare them for their future. She has been a remarkable influence on the series. she knew the young Tom Riddle, and later fought him face-to-face as an adult. She has been a member of the Order twice, and helped Harry Potter and company to save the world. I would love to stand in her boots, and live her magical life. (I cannot wait to find out about her back story).

Ginny. She is beautiful, loyal, courageous, and grows up to be a famous sports hero and marries the man of her dreams! She’s not afraid to throw it all down and fight for her family and friends. She’s got the perfect personality fit for me.

I would swap lives with Hermione because she works hard and always trys her hardest on everything. She’s also really good at being able to tell what people are thinking and telling others how to react in the situation.

I would switch with Professor McGonagall. I truly think she must have a rich history. The accomplishments we know about are extraordinary, Hogwarts Transfiguration professor, Head of Gryffindor House, Headmistress, Deputy Headmistress under Dumbledore, member of the Order of the Phoenix, Animagus. I think it would be one extraordinary day to be her and to know all her secrets!
