Harry Potter MOTW [6]: Which Weasley Character Would You Be?

Posted November 13, 2014 by Cristina (Girl in the Pages) in Harry Potter MOTW, Weekly Features/Memes / 12 Comments



Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a weekly meme hosted by Uncorked Thoughts, and is a fantastic way to keep the Harry Potter magic alive year round, even when not reading the books!

The Theme This Week: Which Weasley Character Would You Be?

Bill was — there was no other word for it — cool.

(Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire)

Though little page time is devoted to Bill until much later in the series, I was immediately taken with the idea of the eldest Weasley brother. Harry had heard Ron mention his older brother in ways that seemed remniscient of Percy: Head Boy, extremely intelligent, responsible, good career in the wizarding world. Yet upon meeting Bill in the fourth book, Harry is taken aback by the fact that Bill is quite the opposite of Percy, being very personable, laid back, and stylish. I love Bill because he reminds me of myself in a lot of ways. I’m very academically minded and love school and books, but I also have a lot of interests outside of that and I adore fashion and makeup (fun fact: if I didn’t have a book blog, I’d have a beauty blog). I love that Bill is a character who shows that intelligent and academically minded people don’t always fit the stereotypical bill, and just because you’re bookish doesn’t mean you’re boring! Plus, his job sounds pretty awesome, as he works for Gringotts as a curse breaker in Egypt. It would be so fascinating to work abroad and learn about different cultures (or in this case, other wizarding cultures, which I would LOVE to learn more about!) Also, Shell Cottage is absolute perfection.

Which Weasley character do you find to be your kindred spirit?

  1. I was really sad we didn’t get a chance to see more about Bill throughout the series. He really seems like he has a lot going on that we don’t know about, and I completely agree that just because you’re smart doesn’t mean you’re boring. He seems like the kind of guy who makes following the rules seem cool, like he has just that little extra spark. Great pick!! I chose Molly for this week’s HP MOTW!

  2. My favourite Weasley was definitely Ginny! I mean, just look at this conversation:
    George: “Yeah, size is no guarantee of power. Look at Ginny.”
    Harry: “What d’you mean?”
    George: “You’ve never been on the receiving end of one of her Bat-Bogey Hexes, have you?”

    I like to think of myself that way: small, but deadly. Except that would probably be only in a book XD I can barely handle a knife 😉

    • I have to remember not to immediately compare Ginny with the movie character, because she’s way more awesome in the books (in the film she was kind of Meh and her character wasn’t very developed) so I feel like it causes me to underestimate her!

  3. I have no idea which Weasley I’d be, I’m more like Luna lol, but Bill is a great character and I remember meeting him and being surprised that he was so different than what I expected. My sister would definitely be Charlie studying Dragons though. 🙂

  4. This MOTW meme is simply superb. Can’t resist putting in my thought even if I might be a bit late. I think Bill would be an interesting character to be, in fact there should have been more writings about the Weasleys. But I think I would be one of the twins – most probably George Weasley. I relate very much to the mischief in them and would have very much loved to create chaos in Hogwarts!
