My application is the best!  
The Basics

Name: Ozbourne

Age range (13-15, 16-19, 20-24, 25+): 25+, but I feel younger than that.

Favorite character:
Is it cheating to pick two? Because they pretty much go together. I'd have to say my favourites are Fred and George Weasley. For one thing, they're hilarious. And even with the darker tone of the more recent books, they add some wonderful moments of humour. Their exit in Order of the Phoenix was incredible. For another thing, they're enterprising. I love that they started their own business rather than just joining the Ministry or something. They'd always dreamed of owning their own joke shop and they were able to make this come true. And lastly, they're not afraid to go against a rule they think is stupid. This is a lot more admirable to me than just blindly following the rules for the sake of following rules.

Now, I know they're different characters from each other, but I can't pick one or the other. It'd be too much like separating them, and I just couldn't do that to them.

Least favorite character:
Percy Weasley. For one he's a brown-noser. If he'd had his head any further up Mr. Crouch's arse in Goblet of Fire he could've given him a colonoscopy. He can't seem to think for himself. He sets way too much store by the rules. (And I was willing to give him more of a chance in Chamber of Secrets when he seemed to be sneaking off practicing snogging with Penelope Clearwater, but even that got boring.) He's just dull as dishwater. And I didn't like how he treated his family in Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince.

Favorite Non-Harry Potter related fandom:
Ooooh... I've got a lot of fandoms. I suppose I'd have to go with Buffy the Vampire Slayer though. I've always been into things with vampires, demons, werewolves, magic, and that sort of thing, so most of my fandoms involve at least one. And Buffy has some really clever (and often touching) stories, as well as really good characters. (My favourite being Willow Rosenberg.)

What is your pet peeve?:
Only one? I have so many pet peeves. Ignorance being one; it makes me want to bash my head against my desk. If taken too far it makes me want to bash the offending party's head against a desk. Another is backstabbing. My trust is not easily given and I cannot stand when someone betrays it.

The Deeper Stuff

Five years from now you are diagnosed with a terminal illness. It can be cured by a single pill that costs $5,000 dollars and is not covered by insurance. How would you go about getting the medication?
I'd do whatever it takes that wouldn't land me in jail; take up a collection, take out a loan, sell some of my possessions, etc. Maybe gamble a bit and try to raise some extra money. Hell, I'd even sit with a cup on a streetcorner... I don't want to die.

Your house is burning down - all people and pets are out safely. You are able to save one item. What is it and why? This is going to sound really stupid, but it'd be this stuffed animal that I've had since I was a little girl. I'd be saving it for purely sentimental reasons. Yes, I know it'd be better to save photos for sentimental reasons, but I think I'd want something comforting after having lost everything, and this is more comforting.

You find a wallet in a parking lot. It has $1,000 dollars cash in it and a driver's license. You look at the license and realize it belongs to a co-worker you speak to on a daily basis. What do you do?
I'd return it. I don't think I could look my co-worker in the face if I didn't. It's not like it's a stranger's wallet, or just some loose money lying on the ground. Besides, maybe my co-worker would give me a little something for finding it. I mean, if this person carries around a thousand dollars in cash...

You've been given $100,000 dollars. If you can use it all within one hour you will be given one million dollars. What do you do?
That depends on a few things. Are there any stipulations to this? Do I have to have something physical to show for it at the end of the hour? If that's the case then I'd go to a jewelry store and spend it on something ornate and valuable, because those shiny things can rack up the money quickly. I'd say I'd use it to buy a house, but I'm afraid the paperwork might take more than an hour. Besides, that's too ordinary. If I could spend it online... ok, this is going to sound a bit strange, but bear with me. I'd go to that lifegem.com Web site and place an order. It's a site where you can have a diamond made out of your loved one's remains (generally ashes), but you can also have one made from hair. They even do stones in green now. I'd have something made out of my hair, or a couple of somethings. Of course, this takes longer than an hour, but the payment for it wouldn't. And hell, even if my hair looked like crap after cutting enough off to make diamonds, if I got the million dollars I could certainly get it spiffed up again. (Or I could use part of the original $100,000 for some really high-quality wigs...)

You see a famous person in the lobby of a busy movie theater and no one else has noticed him/her. What do you do?
If it was someone I liked, I'd go over and say "Excuse me, aren't you (insert name here)?" and tell them I was a fan, maybe name a favourite project of mine that they had done (whether it be a song, movie, TV series, whatever... depends of course on who the person is!). And I'd try and get their autograph, which I'd probably brag about later in my LJ. If it was someone I didn't particularly care for, I probably wouldn't do anything, though I'd still probably mention it in my LJ.

You come upon a wishing well and toss a coin in to make a wish. Your wish is granted. What did you wish for?
Probably either something lame that I'd wonder why I wished for within about fifteen minutes, or the winning numbers for the next really large lottery. I'd be a bit paranoid just wishing for money that it'd be stolen or counterfeit or something, but if I had the winning lottery numbers I could get all that money legitimately. Plus it'd be really cool to make the person at the convenience store where I buy the winning ticket think I'm psychic.

You're 70 years old and writing your autobiography. What is the title and why would people read it?
Ah, shoot. I used to have a title in mind and everything, but that's changed several times. It's really too hard to say right now what it would be, since I don't have my future neatly mapped out or something. Maybe Confessions of an Immortal Millionaire or something else equally eye-catching.

But I do want to do something with my life that makes me stand out, whether that be starting my own fashion line, overcoming some adversity, getting some really cool job doing voices for animation, or whatever. So people would read it because I am an interesting and unique individual.

You have been gifted with the chance to actually perform a magical spell. In front of you stands your greatest love, your worst enemy, and a pile of inanimate objects ready to be used in your spell. Which spell do you allow yourself to use and why have you chosen that spell?
My actual first reaction to this was "I have a greatest love?" Presuming that actually means someone -other- than my cat, I'll come up with a real answer here.

I'd probably be more tempted to do something to my enemy than to my love. Because if whoever this is is really my greatest love, I wouldn't have to do anything to them... the whole "just the way you are" thing and all that other mushy crap that I'm not sure I believe in anyway. I'd try not to let my temper get the better of me and end up in jail (or Azkaban as the case may be, which really does not sound fun) even if it might occur to me to use Crucio. So I'd probably do something to my worst enemy that'd even out whatever they did that made them my worst enemy. Sort of a karma thing, give them what they deserve.

You find a magic lamp, rub it, and out pops a Genie. You are given the chance to relive and change one experience in your past. What do you change (if any) and why?
I'd go back and change my major in college. I took biology, which is what interested me at the time, but now since I've got no desire to teach it, do research, or get an advanced degree, I'm not doing anything with it. And I hate that I've got a degree that I'm doing nothing with. I might even change where I went to college, and go somewhere with a really good design program. I'd like to be a fashion designer, and maybe if I started sooner, right now there'd be models on a catwalk somewhere wearing some of my creations.

Okay, we're both Slytherin's, but I'm a 'claw here and I'm going to be selfish and steal you.

Because you're definitely a Slytherclaw.

And I want you.

...please, everyone?

OMG but, Random dear, your application actually made me think Gryffindor. With some Puff.

I must be on the crack... but that's what I see.

I am seeing you as Griffindor, knowing you I know what you would LIKE to be sorted into but I think you are kinda like Harry, a Griffindor that could do very well in slytherin. But your application screams griffindor
Me, myself and I: Slytherin sortedascendingflame on May 8th, 2007 05:48 am (UTC)
Definitely Gryffindor with some Ravenclaw and a hint of a Slytherin push *raises eyebrow*. You'll do fine in Gryffindor, though.

Ozbourne, Ozbourne, Ozbourne..... where to put you. I know you get along splendedly with us Slytherins, but this application really, really makes me think Gryffindor.

HG, Slytherin

Hmm...you would go well in Slytherin, but you seemed more Gryffindor to me. I'm not sure what the exact thing in the app that made me think that was, but that's just the vibe I got from you.

You've been sorted into Gryffindor! Congratulations! :) You can now join the various Club Hogwarts communities - including your club house!

Also, and don't forget, as one of the first Club members - you're far cooler than others!
