I would want to be Molly Weasley. She is a loving mama who puts the needs of her children and family first, plus she keeps a cozy home, knits and can kick butt when necessary!

I would want to switch lives with Luna Lovegood. First off, she is my favorite character as well as my role model because of how different and truthful she is. Also, I love her style, it is very unique. Plus, who wouldn’t want to be the daughter of the editor of the Quibbler?

Hermione, totally Hermione. She is super smart and resourceful, just like me. She was also almost in Ravenclaw, which I would be in.I love her, and Ron, they make a wonderful couple. :) I love Harry Potter. She also needs braces ;) With muggle parents. I would totally switch with Hermione.

I would readily switch lives with Fred Weasley. While he may have been the twin who dies he always seemed to stand out more between the two twins to me. He is the complete opposite of me: daring, likes to joke around, doesn’t take anything too seriously and creative. These are some of the qualities that I wish I could improve on or be like which is why I would definitely switch lives with him. I would love the chance to be someone that I wish I could be more like. I wish I would be daring and not be afraid to make a fool of myself. He also doesn’t seem to care about what other people think which is something I tend to worry about. I really admire Fred and wish that I wasn’t afraid to just be myself in front of others.

I would also love to be a twin and have someone that thinks very similarly to me. Having a twin would be like having the best friend who would definitely know me like no one else would. Another thing I love about Fred is that he owns the greatest joke shop in the wizarding world. I’ve always wanted to find something I am incredible passionate in and Fred found something that he absolutely loves with his brother. I love his joke shop, the creations inside are so creative that I wish they were actually real sometimes. I would definitely prank people if I was brave enough or could get the chance. And if I were Fred I would definitely get my chance! And besides who wouldn’t want to own a joke shop that brings joy (or pain) to so many people in the magical world?

I do not wish to enter the comp but I am going to answer that anyways
Probably Ginny Weasley. She’s great at sport, very popular, and quite clever too… plus she has the funniest brothers on earth – Fred and George! :)

I so admire Professor McGonagal. She is kind but firm, quiet yet always there to help. She’s perfect!

I think I’d have to say Hermione, I’d love to just feel that brainy and brave for a day.

I should like to swap places with Ginny Weasley. She is a very powerful witch, but is pretty quiet about it, until you get her angry. Ginny wins the heart of Harry Potter by loving who he is inside rather than because he is “the chosen one.”

Its hard to say…..But here are the few.
Luna Lovegood – She’s bright, enthusiastic and does what she wants and doesn’t care what people think about her. Not to mention her radish ear – rings are THE COOLEST THINGS EVER!
Ginny Weasly – She’s confident, smart, pretty AND she’s with Harry! XDD
Hermione – Hermione is really smart and nice, and can fight if nessecary (when she punched Draco) AND she ends up with Ron! The only thing better then being with Harry is being with Ron.
Tonks – She is awsome…except….well she dies….but you could change appearence when she wants (That would be so useful)

I would switch with one of the Weasley twins. Although they are different in their own way, they always seem to have the best adventures; and I would love to go on a wild adventure with either of them.

Ginny. No doubt about it, Ginny. She’s smart, funny, brave, and capable of giving all the guys in her life what for and being the boss. While very different in many ways, she is her mother’s daughter. A strong woman who rules over her men.
