Ron or Hermione or Harry or Luna or Ginny or ... *continues on*  
Name: Shalane
Age: 16
Gender: Female

1. If you looked into the Mirror of Erised what would you see? Why?
I’d see myself with my friend, just together. I’ve never met her face-to-face, and I’d like to someday. We’ve been through a lot, and we’re pretty much best friends.

2.Who do you think you most relate to in any of the books? Why?
Well, I can sometimes relate to more than just one character. But I’d have to say Ron Weasley. I’m a total loyal friend (if you can get passed my barrier), and I’ve yet to find who I am. Also, I can be jealous of my friends quite a bit, and I have been told I’m funny.

3. What makes you continue to wake up every morning? What do you feel is your purpose in life? What makes you who you are? Explain.
I cannot really answer these questions, as I myself don’t know the answers. Maybe that’s why I wake up every morning. To find out what my purpose in life is. I am who I am because I chose to be.

4. Who is your favorite teacher? Why?
Professor Flitwick. He’s cheery, yet can be serious if he has to.

5. What teacher do you dislike? Why?
Snape. Mostly because he’s can be quite unfair and cruel.

6. What class would you do the best in? Which would you do worst in? Why?
I think the class I’d be best in is Divination. I’m interested in that kind of thing, and I’d also be okay in Potions, which to me is like cooking. I’m a good cooker. I’d also be okay in Charms and Defense Against the Dark Arts. I’d be worst in History of Magic, as I don’t have any interest in learning history at all (unless I actually am interested). I’d probably be bad in Arithmancy and Ancient Runes as I don’t understand them at all.

7. You're faced with a boggart in Defense Against the Dark Arts class. What form does it take? Why do you fear this above anything else?
It takes on the form of the Devil or a demon. I’m not a Christian or anything like that. I’m just afraid of the paranormal, like ghosts in stuff. But I’m scared of the Devil and/or demons more than ghosts.

8. Who is your favorite character in the series? What makes them so special to you? Explain.
I have a lot of favorite characters, so for this question, I’m gonna say Luna Lovegood. She’s “dreamy” and is mostly always “zen”. She believes in so many crazy things, and she doesn’t care what other people think of her.

9.Would you enter your name into the Goblet of Fire? Why or why not?
Probably not. I’m just not a brave person, only when I have to be.

10. If you could go back and tell a younger version of yourself one thing, what would it be? Why?
I’d tell my younger self that those people didn’t mean to tell you to “shut up!”. They were just stressed at the time. I’d also tell “her” that it’s okay to talk because people want to hear your voice.

11. How would you spend your free time around Hogwarts? Why?
Probably lounging in the Common Room because I’m lazy. :P Or maybe reading a book or going to the Library, as I love to read.

12. Do you think Hermione’s idea of S.P.E.W was a good idea? Why or why not? Would you have supported her?
It doesn’t really seem like a very good idea, but I know that her intentions are good. The house-elves obviously do not want to be freed, no matter what she says. If I was her friend, I’d support her.

13. What person, dead, alive, or fictional, do you admire most? What makes you look up to them? How have they affected your personality? Explain.
Okay, don’t kill me for this – but I admire Eminem. I look up to him because he’s talented in what he does, and his music isn’t like other rap artists’. He does his own thing, and is a great lyricist of his genre. He uses his music as a sort of “therapy”, which is what I do as well. If I’m angry, I’ll listen to “Kim”. If I need encouragement, I’ll listen to “Till I Collapse”. And so on and so forth. He has made me laugh and cry with his songs, and it’s because of Eminem that I do not want to do drugs and drink and stuff.

14. What makes a person respectable? Why?
A person who is willing to look past other peoples’ barriers, and see them for who they are in the inside, not the outside. Someone who is their own person, and does not fall victim to the popular culture. A person who is loving, compassionate, caring, honest, and wise.

15. Name the characteristics you have in common with each House.
Gryffindor: Brave when I have to be. I’m strong-willed, and will stick up for my friends.
Hufflepuff: Loyal and open-minded.
Ravenclaw: I’d be smart if I’d apply myself, but I don’t. I understand things, too.
Slytherin: I can be vain at times.

Welcome, Shalane!

Hate to break it to you, but your coding seems to be a bit off and there are no line breaks. I'd deeply appreciate it if you fixed that asap. Easier to read, you know.

Thanks in advance,
Headmistress Amber

By the way, my username seems to be messed up in number 16.

I say you'd do the best in Hufflepuff.
You seem very loyal, honest, and hardworking.

I saw a bit more Hufflepuff than any other House. You seem like a loyal and caring type of person. You will do wonders at Hufflepuff. There you will meet the right people.

Matthew of Hufflepuff :)

That tells me Gryffindor, but even after reading my first feeling was pulling me toward Gryffindor...

I would have to say Hufflepuff! That was my first instinct and it stayed that way all through your application.
