I think I would swap with Ginny. She’s a very talented witch, and she is very much like me. I love jokes and pranks, but I can be very serious if I have to. I would love to have such a big family, and Ginny is also one of my favorite characters. I think I also resemble Hermione, because I love learning new things. but in the magical world it would be far more interesting than in the Muggle world. but I would still choose Ginny.

When asked this question, my mind honestly jumps to Nymphadora Tonks Lupin, lovingly known as Tonks. It would be, of course, an extremely wonderful thing even to BE a wizard, let alone one of the characters. I would readily swap lives with Tonks. Her being a Metamorphmagus just ADDS to the wonderful life of hers. I’d love to be an Auror, and I’d absolutely have a blast with being able to change my appearence. With the amount of hair dye I go through now, being able to have whatever hair I wanted would be a miracle. So I would chose Tonks. Hufflepuffs, true and loyal, steady badgers unafraid of toil!

I would have to say Luna. Her perspectives on life are remarkable. I’d want to know how she sees the world. I want to understand what shaped her.

id swap lives with fred weasley. even though he meets an unpleasant end. I would adore being a part of the weasley family and having arthur and molly as parents. it would also be so cool to be a twin! fred is so loved and popular with the students. he and george are always mischievous, having a laugh and are always very enterprising. i would have loved to stick it to one of my teachers like he did to umbridge by dropping out of school in such spectacular fashion! id rather be fred than george because george will have to continue on with life after losing fred. i think that would be too devastating so i would rether go out as fred who has lived a fun filled life with no regrets.

TONKS!!! Definitely Tonks….the ability to change your hair colour at will?? Your whole appearance should you so desire…and to be adored by Remus Lupin……ahhh, if only!! Tonks is cool and laid back, very brave and she doesn’t care about messy houses…in fact she thinks a clean house is unnatural, so I’m half Tonks already

I have always wanted to swap lives with Harry. I suppose that might be an odd thing to say since his life is filled with so much pain and loss and grief, but it’s also filled with things that most people never get to experience: epic adventures, real-life intrigue, friends that would actually die for him, intense love for and from the people around him, and let’s not forget the real magic he gets to use in daily life. I know being Harry would be incredibly hard, but it would also be amazingly fulfilling, I think. I’ve always absolutely loved his relationship with Dumbledore (not to mention Ron and Hermione) and it would be wonderful to be able to experience that.

And adding to my comment on page five, Hermione always stands up for what she believes is right, no matter what popular opinion says.

I would, at the beginning of the series, have wanted to swap places with Harry. You get Hagrid to pick you up, you go to Diagon Alley, you get sorted. It’s an amazing experience. But Harry and his friends had such difficult adolescents so I think I’d not be very eager to swap with any of them. However, being Hagrid would be very fun. You get to converse daily with such amazing people like Flitwick, McGonagall and Dumbledore, while attending amazing feasts. You also get to live in that nice house, and have these awesome creatures, and learn more about them. You get to see Harry, Ron and Hermione often and have fun with them, but never in absolute danger. I’d love to switch with Rubeus Hagrid. :)

My what a fascinating topic…I would say I would swap with Harry. Through all the pain and angst, I would not trust very easy and would not forgive very easy either. Needless to say I would have changed his love life and friendship early on(sorry Ron, you were not much of a friend the last 3 years in school). Well who knows what could have been, guess thats what fanific is for!

I guess I’d switch with Hermione. She’s brave, loyal, trustworthy, kind,……………., helpful………. and a true Hero! I don’t reside in USA but felt like commenting.

Well, if I were taking a math test, I’d switch with Hermione :-D but any other time I’d switch with Hagrid. He is very interesting, and it would be cool to see what his life is like and do the planning of Care of Magical Creatures class.

I would switch with Cho Chang because as much as I really dislike her, I’d want to find out just exactly HOW she got into Ravenclaw.
Plus I’d get to kiss Harry :)

molly weasley – i could the house work done and be contented with life except when dealing the twins of mischief

I’m not sure if I want to be anyone because their lives kind of suck. Maybe Harry, if I could make his choices for him. I feel like I would make much better choices, and I don’t have such a temper. I relate the most with Luna and I feel like I could handle her life the best. I think we are rather alike, though tend to be a mix of her and Ginny. Or however ends up with Neville cause he’s awesome.
