Hermione Granger - Chapter One

thegirlswholived:

By Elyssa

Hermione presses her copy of Hogwarts: A History against her chest.  Her luggage, triple-checked and tightly packed, has already been loaded onto the train.  Hermione, however, stays on the train platform, watching the rushing children and harried parents flit from the barrier to the luggage drop-off, then pausing at the train doors for a kiss goodbye.  Hermione’s parents are standing a few meters behind her.  She suspects they recognized that she needed this moment to stand and stare at this magical future, to watch the passing people, to study the details in the paint on the side of the train.

Hermione Granger - Prologue

thegirlswholived:

by Elyssa.

On her dresser, Hermione always keeps one box of ballpoint pens and two boxes of pencils.  She still thinks that writing with quills is reserved solely for history films, and that magic is only for fairytales; that food can run out and her front teeth will always be bigger than the rest; that adulthood comes at 18 and she must wait until then.

This is when she is a child, of course.  It doesn’t last long.

Your result for The Sorting Hat: A Comprehensive Harry Potter Personality Assessment [Test/Quiz]…

Gryffindor

49% Ravenclaw, 40% Hufflepuff, 51% Slytherin and 61% Gryffindor!

You might belong in Gryffindor,   Where dwell the brave at heart,   Their daring, nerve, and chivalry Set Gryffindors apart;

Gryffindor’s cardinal traits are bravery, pride, stubbornness and impulsiveness. Most people in the house of Gryffindor will be extraverted. (Remember, introversion is different than being shy: you can be a shy extrovert.) Gryffindors gain energy and life by being around people, grain strength from friends and enjoy working with those close to them. However, they are also emotionally volatile and can experience a wide range of feelings in a short amount of time, from unbridled happiness to deep depression to unrestrained rage. They are less emotionally stable than some of the other houses (such as Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff); Gryffindors are also impulsive. They’re also generally good-hearted and trusting, and for the most part like people at first sight unless they are given a reason not to. Gryffindors are Prideful, bad at taking criticism and easilyget into conflicts with others—this is the main trait that would bring their overall level of agreeableness from high to average.

A Gryffindor’s prideful nature coupled with their sense of justice and stubborn behavior causes them to be extremely set in their ways. They have a difficult time backing down from a fight or admitting that they are wrong. It’s also very hard for them to get over a bad first impression or change their opinion on someone.

At some point you have to make a decision. Boundaries don’t keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that’s how we’re made. So you can waste your life drawing lines… or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here’s what I know. If you’re willing to take a chance… the view from the other side… is spectacular.
