Congrats; I just saw that on your app a little bit ago! :D

Have fun with the Slytherins. ^^

Haha, thanks. I totally laughed when I saw that my app has been "randomly" chosen in that one sorting contest. I totally saw that coming. I was just waiting for it. :p

Anyhoo, I have government work to do.

Haha, I laughed at that too. x]

Orly? Government work or government homework?

Homework, ha. I wish it was actual work, though. :p

Yipes! XD

Btw, Daydream, who is your favorite character in the series? If it was someone from Slytherin maybe it channeled into the sorting! *Well, it would be cool if that were true!* ^^

Bellatrix! And I quote:

My favorite character in the series changes with the weather and my mood. The late April weather here is gorgeous, but the only warm feeling I�m in the mood for today is that of abundant admiration. At the time of writing this answer, Bellatrix Lestrange is my favorite character. The first time I �met� her I found her awful at best, horrifying at worst. That opinion of her has not changed; if I knew her in real life I�d avoid her (avoiding being better than working to keep her happy, of course; I need some dignity, after all). However, I have added to my opinion of her now that I�ve had time to reflect upon her character. I like a lot of what I see. She is perceptive: anybody who can see through Snape�s act as Bellatrix did in HBP earns my vote. She is jealous: I suspect that part of the reason why she could see through Snape so well is because she�s been watching him for so long, wondering why the hell it�s Snape who has the most of Voldemort�s attention and not she, when she is the one who sacrificed fifteen years in Azkaban on Voldemort�s behalf while Snape lived in relative comfort. (I can�t see why someone wouldn�t be jealous of Snape after going through that.) She�s clearly devoted, and if someone fought for me and went to jail for me the way Bellatrix does for Voldemort, that person would be my right-hand man. I can relate to her desire to be the favorite; as much as Bellatrix craves the most of Voldemort�s attention, I�ve wanted to be the first one Thomas turned to, rather than the second. (In my opinion, second place is the absolute worst place to be.) And Bellatrix, I think, is fairly uncomplicated. It really isn�t hard to figure her out or understand her, and that is refreshing in a series filled with angsty, complicated characters.

All of that, and if I could pick anyone in the world, fiction or real, to be on my side for a fight, I�d go with Bellatrix. Yes, she�s a kick-ass fighter, but more than that, she comes so alive in fighting that I�ve found it impossible to not watch her (or read her, as the case may be) and catch some of that energy that practically radiates off of her. And, letting go of all seriousness for one moment, she�d provide some incredible entertainment. Surely I�m not the only one who laughed when she goaded Harry into that kind of anger in the OotP movie?

But really, I don't think it occured to anyone to sort me based on my fave character. In all actuality, people couldn't agree where to sort me. I've noticed that most applicants get a near-unanimous vote for one house with some variation here and there, but my votes were quite diverse:

Slytherin 43
Gryffindor 26
Ravenclaw 16
Hufflepuff 9
Squib 5 :p

So, ya know... I'm not completely green!

Whoa! That is a lot of variation!

This is really cool; I haven't known anyone before who likes Bellatrix best. She needs more love! I, admittedly, never thought too deeply about her. You've really made me see her in a different light.

I can't decide a favorite; it's a toss between Luna, Dean, McGonagall or Malfoy. Talk about liking the minor characters! Lol.

Are your going to see the 6th movie in theaters? The recent trailers make it look like one of the top best films in the series. I'm not too jazzed by the pairings, but the action, humor, and dialogue seem great so far. ^^

Yeah? Cool. :D Bellatrix is just... she's intriguing. The only other characters I've ever wanted to know the history of as badly as she is Azula, and everyone knows how much I lurve Azula. :p I just wonder how she got to be the person she is; after all of the fanfics I've read, I have a hard time believing that she was automatically a racist sociopath. Hatred is love's twin, and the amount of hatred she has (versus Azula's jealousy issues and familial insecurities) hints that there was once a lot of love (twisted, misguided love perhaps, but love nonetheless) in her somewhere.

And oh, I looove Luna. I watched OotP before I read the book (yeah, I know, hooorrriiible, but it was on cable!), and I loved her the moment I saw her on the screen.

Of course I'm gonna go see it! I'm going to tell my mom I'm seeing something totally different, and then I'm gonna watch HBP. >:D
