I realize this community is not terribly active anymore, but it does not seem to be completely defunct. So here I go:

Name: Rettavex
Age: 29
Please list your top 5 traits: Sarcastic, intelligent, loyal, semi-introverted, affectionate(when warranted)
Who is your favourite Hogwarts teacher?
Severus Snape—he is the truth; he is beautifully flawed; totally brilliant; magnificently observant; enormously capable and talented; the epitome of conflicted
What is your favourite Hogwarts class?
Charms—so many to choose from; capable of expediting everything from domestic chores to murder; or enhancing everything from room décor to sex. YUM.
What is your opinion of Dumbledore?
Secretive. Brilliant and formidable strategist. Bit of a riddler at the most inappropriate times. Suspiciously ignorant of facts which would call into question his own judgement. I would guess a Scorpio, but JKR implies the man was born in July or August.
What spell do you think would be most useful to you in the real world?
Apparition. It would save so much time, and increase my ability to see the world.
What style of music do you listen to?
Blues, Jazz, and Old school R&B (this ‘60s and ‘70s). It all tells a story and takes immense courage from a battered soul to produce.
What is your favourite TV programme?
Weeds—Mary Louise Parker is just brilliant as a suburban widow who begins selling pot to maintain her well-to-do lifestyle. She affects ditzy, suburban soccer-mom with aplomb while still managing to be cunning and savvy.
The Shield, a groundbreaking cop show on FX that has few if any morally redeemable characters. Every cop within the strike force that is the primary focus of the show is just so deeply flawed and morally corrupt, yet the show makes you root for the baddest fucking cop of them all—Vic Mackey, fabulously portrayed by Michael Chiklis.
You see a man in a three-piece suit drop a $100. What will you do?

Pick it up and mentally consult my bank balance before deciding whether or not to return it.
If one of your friends was in a fight, what would you do?

 Jump in to help, or at the very least break it up before the cops arrive.
Would you prefer to be never sick or never sad again?
Never sick—who the hell wants to be sick? Saddness can’t kill me unless I let it; illness can kill me whether I allow it or not.
You are told that your soul mate has killed all their family. What will you do?

Find out all the details from my mate and provide whatever support I can given the circumstances.
What is the best thing you have ever done for a stranger?

Bought them food when they were hungry and penniless.
Would you rather donate time or money?
Time. Money doesn’t last, but what I can impart with my time is priceless. Plus time can be given over and over. Money—not so much in my case.
Our society accepts many terrible things, but what is the worst?
Poverty/Hunger (not that, man-I-could-go-for-a-cheeseburger-made-with-ground-filet-mignon kind of hunger; but the type of hunger where people have distended bellies from malnutrition and are too weak and near death to even open their mouths to complain about it)
We all have secrets. What is one thing people don’t know about you?
Well, if I told then someone would know...
You hate someone with a fury. If you had the opportunity, would you let them die?

 Nope. No one can force me to hate them enough to watch them perish if I can do something to prevent it. No one has that much control over my emotions. I control my hate, not the other way around.
If there was one thing in the world that you did not have to do, what would it be?
Die and leave my son—ever.
Would you fight for evil?

Depends on what the evil is working to accomplish. One man’s evil is another man’s good.
How many times have you read the Harry Potter books?

3 Prizoner of Azkaban was my favorite. Draco gets punched, Sirius escapes and meets Harry, we see Harry’s patronus
Would you prefer to go out with Daniel Radcliffe (Harry)/Emma Watson (Hermione) or Tom Felton (Draco)/Bonny Wright (Ginny)?
Tom Felton (Draco)/Bonny Wright (Ginny)—They are both loose enough to have a good time, plus Ginny doesn’t quibble and whine. Besides, it would take me only ten minutes to shut Hermione the hell up via a fist shoved in her overbearing, bookish, eager-to-show-off-her-brains mouth.
What is your favourite pairing of HP characters? (Be it canon or fanon)</b>
 Harry/Snape—the raw emotion and magical power between the two is just explosive and makes for very impassioned, volatile, yet loyal lovers.
If one of these characters were Muggles, what would you buy them for a gift:
 Harry Potter
Ron Weasley
Hermione Granger
Professor Umbridge
Molly Weasley
Parvati Patil
Why? Umbridge—a vibrator. No one is in more dire need of getting one off than that woman.
Supply one (1) song lyric, no longer than 6 lines, that describes you:
I'm a new soul
I came to this strange world
Hoping I could learn a bit bout how to give and take
But since I came here, felt the joy and the fear
Finding myself making every possible mistake

--New Soul by Yael Naim

I think there's a broken BOLD-tag somewhere at the end, if you'd be so kind to check on it. :)

Bold no more!

Thanks for the pick-up on this little mishap. I was indeed sleepy by the time I posted this :)
