I kinda think I relate mostly to Fred and George.. even though I'm a girl.
My brother and I are barely a year apart and so we grew up like twins. When we're together we feed off each other in a way that "normal" people don't really understand. If my brother died I think that I would feel like a part of me died with him, as I'm sure George feels about Fred.
I also relate with Luna and Ron because we have an uncanny way of saying exactly what is on our minds.. no matter how absurd it may sound.
December 4th, 2007, 3:57 pm
I'm quite like Hermione: always with my nose inside a book, and spending more time in the library than at home. I'm not as fussy as her about exams, but anyway I get quite unbearable. And, while she doesn't like flying at all, I'm convinced I'll be unable drive when I try to learn.
By the way, I'm as clumsy as Tonks, and, like her, I have a tendency for falling for charming, almost perfect men (only that at last she marries Lupin, while I don't manage even to date them :(). But the Hermione type is the dominant in my personality.
December 4th, 2007, 4:15 pm
I'm mostly compared by my friends to a cross between snape and luna, i'm unsure whether to take offence. they say i'm really insane but in a scary way, apparently i talk about death alot and my views on the world are kind of twisted, when they're being nice they call me eccentric, at my primary school i was bullied for being a wierdo. My boyfriend compares me to hermione by saying that i'm really posh compared to how i was when i was at school with him! git. and i am always reading something and i am one of the top in my year. I'm clumsy like tonks. several of my friends say i can be ron-like at times. and apparently i have a temper something like ginny's. my favourite character is snap ebut i don't like being described as like him! i love the odd practical joke like fred and george, stink-bombed the head teachers office on the last day of primary school! good times.
December 4th, 2007, 4:38 pm
Hermione! I love her. It's always been her.
December 4th, 2007, 5:25 pm
Definatly Tonks : I'm clumsy and I like changing for no apparent reason x)
And I like falling in love for *ahem* long periods of time ><
December 4th, 2007, 6:15 pm
I have favorite characters...Harry, Ginny, Ron, Kingsley, but in terms of relating to someone, I relate more to Sirius. As an older sibling who had a less than cordial relationship with my parents, I find myself relating better to Sirius' situation, where I become closer to the kids and families of my friends than my own.
December 4th, 2007, 6:27 pm
Being French-Asian, I can't make up my mind between Cho and Fleur, ;) the two of them being both pretty and bright, and both playing interesting (if secondary) roles in the story.
December 5th, 2007, 1:25 am
Harry, definitely. I don't have the same lifestyle, but I would have reacted the same way as Harry did several times in the books. I always find it easy to figure out what is in character with Harry's behavior because of this.
I have a soft spot for Ron. He reminds me of how I used to be. I used to have really low confidence, and I can understand exactly how Ron felt when he was insecure.
Lastly, Fred and George. We have the same type of sense of humor. I am known to make fun of people in a joking way. Actually, I make fun of my friends/family on a daily basis. :p
December 5th, 2007, 1:53 am
A mix between Hermione and Luna - which is wierd, because they're total opposites.
I'm definitely like Hermione in a lot of regards - I'm near the top of my class (9 of 446 :hmm:) and I probably spend more time reading than talking (although I'm not sure Hermione does that :whistle:). I'm always correcting my friends' grammar and homework (whether they like it or no) and I bet I get a little annoying at times, just like Hermione.
But at the same time, I've always felt a sort of affinity for Luna. I've got her hair (not Evanna Lynch hair - my sister has that - dirty blond hair like it says in OotP) and her bug-eyes (because of a thyroid issue). I love her for standing up for her individuality and for what she believes in, even when everyone else thinks she is loony. She goes on telling people about all her theories and conspiracies - I think if she were a muggle, she would make a great evangelical Christian. :rotfl: I was sure before DH comes out that she would introduce an idea that would turn out to be true - and in a way, through her father, she did. And I'm often not quite there, like Luna can get sometimes - I'll stare off into space and forget where I am and what I'm supposed to be doing, but somehow my spaciness turns out all right, just like Luna's. I dressed up as her at the release party.
It's sort of funny, though, since Hermione and Luna are so often at daggers. ("But what is the proof" - "Just because you're too close-minded to believe something that's not shoved under your nose" ...I have a lot of internal conversations like that. :lol:)
December 5th, 2007, 1:55 am
Snape and a little Ron.
December 5th, 2007, 2:00 am
heh probably Tonks here. I'm a clutz ;)
December 5th, 2007, 2:28 am
Well, I'd say a mix of Hermione and Harry
I can be an annoying know-it-all sometimes, to the point of being over-bearing at times, but I like to think that I am also very practical (which is at times Harry and at times, Hermione).
I am trying to think of a character who is laid back, lets things fly, and doesn't have a temper, but is also kind of introverted- cuz that would be me. But all the characters seem either to get angry easily or just be sooo not me in other aspects (ex: Fred and George- I have a dreadfully abysmal sense of humor). Any help here?
December 5th, 2007, 2:32 am
mixture of ron and hermione. Love Ron's ironic (or is it sarcastic????) sense of humor. My type of humor. Besides I am a little insecure about some things. And I am not as obsessed with books as Hermione, but I got to say I love studying and reading. I remember HPB, when they get the OWL results, I always did what Hermione did! I always thought I would fail every subject ahah
December 5th, 2007, 3:09 am
a mix between hermione and luna i guess. im a certified bookworm like hermione and more often that not lost in my thoughts like luna hehe...
December 5th, 2007, 3:33 am
I think I'm most like Snape and Lupin. I won't go into detail as that would take too long right now. XD
December 5th, 2007, 4:35 am
I relate to Severus Snape and Lupin the most. The Public school I went to when we moved was so cliquish it wasn't even funny. Because of my disability and being sickly, I was ostricized like Snape was. The reason I relate to him the most is I know how it feels to be THE target of a group of kids. I know how it feels trying to hide from them, but keep an eye on them at the same time. I was so much more comfortable being on my own than with a group. Yet, like him, I wanted to be the "Cool Kid" or hang out with him, but put up a defensive "get away from me" hand at the same time.
As an Adult, I find it harder to trust other people. I have a few very close Friends. I've never been into the bar scene, loud parties, etc. I'm so much more comfortable with my own company reading or out with my Friends.
December 5th, 2007, 4:50 am
Probably the girl version of Ron, minus the red hair and freckles.
I'm deathly afraid of spiders, I'm easily embarrassed, and I never actually "leave" my friends (like in Deathly Hallows where he left, but came back.).
Also, I've got a decent sense of humor, and I'm rather sarcastic sometimes.
I think I've got a bit of Luna in me as well.
According to several of my friends, I'm unique and don't care what other people think, which is a good thing (hopefully!). I "march to the beat of my own drum" and Luna does that. She says things that some people might find strange, but she is who she is. But I don't have sweet commentating skills like she does. :p
December 5th, 2007, 4:51 am
I always thought of myself in the same position as Ron- since I am in the middle of 5 other siblings 2 younger, 3 older. Yes, 4 out of five are step/half siblings, but I am still extremely close to all of them, and we are all around the same age (give or take about 6 years). Trherefore, I am often in some of the same sibling positions as Ron. In that way I can relate to him. But personality wise, no.
I would say that with my personality, I am probably the closest to Hermione. I'm not as smart as her (of course), but I am extremely bookish.
December 5th, 2007, 6:13 am
Snape. Not having a friend, wanting one, having weird shabby clothes, and being a nerd with nose in book and really caring about academic subjects, are all childhood experiences I can relate to. As is having a conflict with the 'cool' kids. Lucky for me, I had a better family life, and there were no terrorist groups recruiting at my high school. ;)
As an adult, he has a sense of humor I can relate to, and says things I would sometimes like to. :evil:
December 5th, 2007, 7:28 am
Even though I'm a girl, Neville, as I have parents with serious mental health issues.
December 5th, 2007, 12:21 pm
Hermione and Harry.
December 5th, 2007, 1:17 pm
Hermione....yesterday i got my grades,all of them Os
Harry,i have his nasty temper
Luna...I dont usually fit in,Im a bit weird,not here though this site is like the DA for me...I have some friends here.
December 5th, 2007, 7:27 pm
I relate to Ron the most, and that's one of the reasons I both love and despise him- he reminds me far too much of myself. I can totally empathize with Ron's insecurities, low self-confidence, and struggle to fit in. Ron isn't the best or the brightest, he's just an ordianry teenager who is constantly overshadowed by others and feels out-of-place. I can totally relate, as I often feel that way myself. Additonally, Ron has a difficult time dealing with his emotions toward the opposite sex, often gets embarassed or makes a fool of himself, and has a temper that gets the better of him- He and I are sooo much alike.:)
December 5th, 2007, 9:38 pm
I'm not sure how people would take this, but i relate to barty crouch senior, dumbledore and voldemort the most.
Barty crouch senior is mostly seen as a guy who took extreme measures to help a good cause, and i guess i'm kind of like that.
i relate a lot to dumbledore because of how i keep secrets about myself, and because i manipulate people a lot. not in a huge major way, but i do a lot. i also have too many thoughts crammed in my head, like he said he had before. and i'm not trying to brag, but i'm pretty smart, not that i use my brains much :p.
I really really relate to voldemort. he wanted to be different, and thats exactly what i want to be. he went for the dark side, and i haven't exactly gotten there, but it's pretty fun to be evil. I'll never kill, for both good and evil reasons, but i'm fairly cold hearted. not enough to torture everyone around me or something, but still. i'm not really powerhungry like he is, and i'll never really work at becoming a world dictator, but i would like a fair amount of power. for example, if i were given equal pay and everything for the jobs of vice president and president or some other high position of some corporation, i would choose vice president, something voldie would never do.... but still. and then there's his way of getting power, mostly secrecy, and that is definitely the way i would go.
December 5th, 2007, 9:45 pm
Seriously, it's difficult to say, I have a bit of Hermione, Ginny and Luna I guess.
December 5th, 2007, 11:00 pm
There's something of Neville in me, and something of Luna. :)
And a part of me that wishes I were Narcissa Malfoy. :p
December 5th, 2007, 11:06 pm
There's something of Neville in me, and something of Luna. :)
And a part of me that wishes I were Narcissa Malfoy. :p
why? about narcissa?
just a reminder, but is it ok if everyone explains why they relate to the characters? since i've seen this happen to a few threads, but they were closed.
December 5th, 2007, 11:35 pm
Well, Narcissa is beautiful, and adored by her husband and son.
That's why. :)
No other reason. :)
December 6th, 2007, 12:13 am
I'm definitely like Neville Longbottom. Clumsy and clutzy and lacking in self-confidence. The main difference--he's a heck of a lot braver than I am.
December 6th, 2007, 12:54 am
I'm definitely like Neville Longbottom. Clumsy and clutzy and lacking in self-confidence. The main difference--he's a heck of a lot braver than I am.
well, neville seemed really scared at first, but when it came towhen he needed it most, he was brave.... so you never know
December 6th, 2007, 7:32 am
Im like a few characters.... snippets of different people for different reasons. I dont think Im like anybody all together as I found myself arguing with the decisions people made throughtout the series :lol:
Its odd, but I think Bellatrix. She is so loyal, and that is one thing I pride myself on being. I am not insane nor do I enjoy torturing people, but loyalty is what I base my life around, and so did she.
I think Im a lot like Sirius as well. Hes a rebel, a fighter, and he doesnt back down, which I think is alot like me. Life isnt fun without a little bit of danger!
Fleur du mal
December 6th, 2007, 5:51 pm
In one word: Snape.
December 6th, 2007, 9:00 pm
I would say that I'm a mix between Ron, Hermione and mostly Sirius. Ron because I speak my mind a lot and value loyalty. I never had any of his insecurities but I have and always did have a knack for snapping at whoever offends those I care for. I can relate to Hermione because I tend to be a bossy know-it-all as well and can get panicky about a lot of things. Sirius' character would be the most dominant because I'm an extrovert like him, sort of a rebel, awfully impulsive and his general character is so like mine that it is slightly freaky.
December 6th, 2007, 9:24 pm
I'd love to say I'm a Fred and George, but truth be told, I more of a Ron and Neville. A little more reserved and down right clumsy at times.
December 6th, 2007, 9:34 pm
HmmmÖthatís a really interesting question & some of the replies from people have been really interesting.
I canít decide who Iím most like but Iíll try!
Ron Ė we both hate spiders, we both have low self confidence at times, we have a similar sense of humour Ė sarcastic and a bit sadistic! (in the way that we would laugh if someone fell over) We both feel at times as though weíre not as great as our friends are.
Hermione Ė we both love books and while Iím not that much of a know it all in comparison to her, when I know the facts about something that Iím passionate about I do tend to go on & on about it!
Dumbledore & Snape Ė we can keep secrets about ourselves Ė I doubt that even my closest friend knows everything there is to know. I donít share things as easily as some people do, I guess I like to keep a part of me hidden in order to protect myself.
Neville Ė Iím forgetful at times and while I donít have a domineering grandmother, my own mother kind of reminds me of his grandmother in little ways!
Seamus Ė weíre both Irish and we seem to have that Irish sense of fun & mischief as well as being laid back about things!
Ok, thatís all I can think of, I guess Ron is the character Iím most like but I do have other aspects!
December 6th, 2007, 10:08 pm
Hmm. I'd have to go with Harry, to an extent. I don't want to get into it, but let's just say there is a tremendous amount of pressure on me.
December 6th, 2007, 10:09 pm
it would be a mixture of sirius black and james potter. i was pretty athletic in high school, and i would die for my wife and daughter, and gladly give my life for any one of my family members, or closest friends.
December 6th, 2007, 10:20 pm
Though it's taken me years to recognize/admit it, I'm very much a Hermione. My closest friends are boys who are simultaneously infuriating and adorable (and even though the friends have changed due to a few big moves, the dynamic is still the same). Her sense of mischief for a good cause... that's me. SPEW... ME!!!! I love that. I'm kind of a know-it-all in friendly company, too. (Don't play Jeopardy with me :))
I'd like to think there's a dash of Tonks thrown in there with the Hermione. I'm a good student, but I'm not as serious about school as Hermione is. Somehow it doesn't take a lot of imagination to picture Tonks leaving a paper to the night before, which is right in line with my schoolwork pattern. (Ha! I should be writing a paper right now!) I'm pretty clumsy. She loves Lupin, and so do I! And I look pretty good with pink hair.
December 8th, 2007, 4:43 pm
I relate the most to Snape.
December 8th, 2007, 4:56 pm
I probably identify the most with Hermione...I've got the academic part with all honors/AP classes (at least when they're available), and I prefer to have a few good friends opposed to lots of acquaintances. I don't have the "get-everything-done-early" part though...most of the time I end up leaving stuff till the night before it's due. Doesn't mean I do bad on the assignments, though. :p
December 8th, 2007, 5:13 pm
I can see a little of myself in several of the characters, I'm secertive like Dumbledre, have the desire to know everything like Hermonie, felt like Snape must of felt growing up being harassed by others, having to wear having to wear hand-me-downs because of a large family with very little money like the Weasleys, wanting my parents to be proud of me like Draco. Plus a few other ways that fit me.
December 13th, 2007, 8:35 am
Neville, I've always been a Neville....the old one, not the new brave one!
December 13th, 2007, 5:46 pm
i see myself as rather snape...a sort of outsider to everyone else...most people i know hate me and say i'm really mean but oh well...my parents want me to spy on my sister because they think somethings up but my sister wats me to spy on her because she thinks there's something up...i'm just caught in the middle...deciding whoes side to be on...cool...i'm so very full of hate and for some rason i trust no one...not the best childhood
December 15th, 2007, 4:38 am
I can relate to Luna, because I belive in things most other people don't, and also to Hermione, because I've usually got my nose in a book.
December 15th, 2007, 8:06 pm
I relate to Neville the most. To me, in the beginning he was so shy and quiet and couldn't quite get himself together. One characteristic that makes him sexy is his courage. He can easily be made into a push-over type of nerd, but his courage completes his personality which makes him very respectable. I'm always rooting for Neville when I read the books.
December 16th, 2007, 4:32 am
Something of a Tonks/Lupin combination :lol:
At first glance I'm quiet, mild-mannered, and well-behaved, but when I'm with my friends I become silly, talkative, and rarely serious. I've always been shy and introverted so I feel so lucky to have the friends I do. They're like family to me. I like to make people feel better, whether it's with humour or a just a talk. But, like Tonks, I'm an ever-changing, clumsy screwball :lol: Rather absent-minded. I don't exactly think highly of myself :/ I'm pretty ashamed, actually. Major inferiority complext, mom says. I'm not a model student. Except for English, my grades are terrible. I'm not an idiot, just a procrastinator, and my mind wanders. While I add to my friends silly ridiculousness, I play the adult, too. Iv'e got to admit, standing-up to my (school) friends isn't easy, despite being 3-4 years older than most of them.
December 16th, 2007, 5:37 am
I relate a lot to Hagrid, Luna, and Hermione, strange combination as that may be. I probably relate to Luna the most, even though Hagrid is my favorite character. Luna is a bit of an outcast, like I am, and even though she does have friends, a lot of the time she is on her own. I flipped when I found out her Patronus was a rabbit, as many people have told me I remind them of a rabbit. Yeah. Plus, a lot of the time, I'm sort of off in my own world, and I don't really care what others think of me; I'll keep on doing my thing no matter what people say.
Hagrid, it seems like he tries to do everything right, but ends up getting it all wrong. Seems to be that way for me, too sometimes. Yet he still cares so much for the people around him, and what can I say? I think the Blast-Ended Skrewts would be fun. :D
As for Hermione, well let's just face it: I'm totally a nerdy bookworm, and proud of it!
December 16th, 2007, 7:32 am
well I'd have to say Blaise for his audacity; Lupin for his sensibility and Sirius because he reminds me of my best mate.
December 16th, 2007, 8:41 am
A combination of Hermione, Luna and Ginny.
I'm quite bookish and sort of intelligent, but I'm brave and quite scary when I'm mad.
I say things that are very truthful, yet make most people feel awkward.
I'm shy when I first meet you, but I can be very fierce if someone tries to stand over me.
December 16th, 2007, 2:13 pm
I'd say I'm a cross between Luna and Neville. I am pretty different like her but I'm also like how Neville was earlier in the series.
December 17th, 2007, 11:39 am
I can relate to Hermione the most; bookworm, geek at school :lol: fairly clever, uptight.
Also; Luna, i'm different and am a bit of a loner. I'm also in a dream world a lot of the time and i do what makes me happy.
December 17th, 2007, 2:24 pm
i can relate to Hagrid, i love animals and i'm big man with a beard so yeah Hagrid is the man.
December 18th, 2007, 8:07 pm
I am most like Hermione, but I truly relate to Harry. I feel like we would have really understood each other. I am almost 31, but he reminds me of my adolescence in a very personal way.
December 18th, 2007, 8:27 pm
I think I am a female version of Ron! :lol: I can very much relate to his insecurities, and his loyalty to his friends. I think I am also a bit like Luna for randomness and daydreaming! :lol:
December 18th, 2007, 8:29 pm
I'm not like any of them but I'm most like Ron. I think he's just wonderful. :love:
December 18th, 2007, 10:01 pm
I would call myself a mix of Luna, I am a bit dreamy, but stand up for what I believe in; and Hermione, I hound after knowledge a bit like her. I can relate to how Luna acts, and is underestimated, but at the same time, how Hermione is often overestimated and insecure.
December 19th, 2007, 2:44 am
I am much more like Neville than any of the other characters. Like many of you, I have characteristics of other characters but the dominant one is Neville.
December 28th, 2012, 12:40 am
There isn't a character I can relate to completely but I can relate to Lupin somewhat even though I'm not a werewolf. I can also relate to Harry sometimes.
December 28th, 2012, 2:52 am
This is really hard. I think I probably have a bit of all of them really.
I do tend to feel pressured and insecure.
I sometimes drift away into a world of my own.
School work is very important to me, even though I'm a procrastinater and study last mintue.
I'm in Gryffindor house on Pottermore yet I'm wondering if I'm really brave, which is why I love Neville so much.
I have a really bad temper but I try my best to control it since I know if I lose it I will regret it later on.
I understand how Snape feels about being picked on. But I'm not mean like him and have such an attitude.
I try to help my friends to the best of my ability.
I kind of find it difficult to trust people but I give them a shot and if things turn out ok I'm cool with them.
I'm not really a rebel
I sometimes feel pressured and I do want my parents to feel proud and it kills me when they said they were disappointed once. Don't want that to happen again. But it was about my grades really.
I try to be good to people even and be understanding. But if I don't get a good vibe from a person I try to keep my distance. That's why even though I see Sanpe's view and like his complex character, I don't belive if I met someone like him in real life I would really get to know them all that good. But I'll try to be nice and not treat them unfairly but I wonh't be really good riends with them. So I'm not outgoing in that way like Lily, which is one of the reasons why I admire her. Its not just her sacrifice.
So yeah, I think I have a bit of everyone.
December 28th, 2012, 3:18 am
As a person, I'm somewhere between Hermione and the Twins.
As a professor, I'm somewhere between McGonnagall and Flitwick. However, Snape often says the things professors are really thinking when students fail to follow directions.
December 29th, 2012, 2:55 pm
I'm like Tonks, because I'm so clumsy, I hate my first name, I love Remus :D and so on. I want pink hair, too! .__.
My friend says I look like Hermione but I don't think so.
December 29th, 2012, 10:13 pm
Hermione - because I love reading, Luna because I am a dreamer, Snape - for many reasons - being unpopular at school, for being poorly dressed/ugly as a teenager and being a 'swot' - I used to spend hours doing homework so I didn't have to address other issues....
December 30th, 2012, 1:23 pm
I think I have a little bit of Hermonie, Luna, and Tonks in me. Hermonie, because I love to read, Luna, because I'm always off in my own little world, and Tonks, because I'm always bumping into stuff and getting lost in my own house!
December 30th, 2012, 2:56 pm
I think I relate to most of them in some ways, big or small, but I'm more in sympathy with Ron, Luna and Snape. I know what it's like to grow up poor but loved like Ron. I'm definitely a bit on the eccentric side like Luna. I know what it's like to suffer from unrequited love like Snape. I've also suffered from requited love though, and I'm not quite sure which is worse.:shrug:
December 30th, 2012, 4:14 pm
I think the character I related most to was Remus, specially some years ago when I wasn't as confident as now. We both found hard to trust people, even our friends, and we were introvert and a bit serious, but faithful friends. We still share our love for chocolate though! haha
I'm also very clumsy like Tonks, and very focused on my studies, like Hermione.
December 30th, 2012, 10:24 pm
Luna because I am a dreamer
:) Me too, my husband always tells me that I'm a dreamer, I love to dream big, even if unrealistically! He said that's why I see the best in people.
I can probably relate most to Hermione. I love school and love learning. I love to know things, but for the sake of learning, not because I want to be a know-it-all. I simply love challenging myself and learning new things. I can't get enough. I also have a sometimes incontrollable urge to tell everyone what I know in class when others clearly have no idea what is going on (much like Hermione's hand-raising). Although I don't always volunteer like Hermione, many of my teachers have gotten to know me well enough to know that if no one answers and they call on me, I'll have the right answer :D
I also am similar to Hermione because for the most part, I follow the rules. I'll break rules for a good reason or for someone I love, but otherwise, I believe in doing the right thing, even if it's not a popular choice.
I also can relate to Ginny because she knows how to stand up for herself and be heard among all her brothers. I've worked in an all-male environment and never had a problem making them notice me. I will also always stand up for myself and don't let others walk all over me.
I love Luna because she is not afraid to be herself. Although I don't consider myself eccentric, I love being an individual, thinking for myself and doing what makes me happy, even if it makes me different. I refuse on principle to follow the crowd.
I also like Harry because he cares about his friends and not about being popular, like Luna and Neville. Harry does not care if anyone else thinks his friends are cool, he likes them because they are good people. That's how I am. I have never been concerned with the whole "clique" type atmosphere either as a child nor as an adult. I like people who are nice; if you are rude, egotistical, think you are better than others or take short-cuts and don't work hard, chances are, we will not get along :evil:
I also am like Harry because I am quite adventurous and love to try new things. I also have no fear, and will try pretty much anything at least once!

Interesting. I know when Iíve been tossed this question in the past, Iíve come up with one or two quick easy answers, but as time has gone on, I see parts of myself in so many of the characters, and as soon as I think I've settled on one or two best choices, a couple more pop into my head as maybe being just as good or maybe even a little better match... I think this is part of JKRís special genius.
Here are a dozen-ish of my highest-ranking ones that came to me quickly, right off the bat:
Smart girl who always had her nose in a book, with interests and talents for things my parents donít get (or donít want to)--Hermione (though I was not as intense about actually doing the schoolwork and getting it in on time. So much of it seemed like pointless busywork about things I already knew).
Firm teacher with a soft side--McGonagall.
Often-underestimated mother bear with surprising talents--Molly.
A bit on the clumsy side (if someone just kicked over the wastebasket while carrying a tray, it was probably me)--Tonks.
Picked-on child who often dressed cheaply and sometimes oddly when younger, with youthful loves of some amazing people who were dear and treasured friends who didnít return my romantic feelings, much to my despair; and sometimes loses patience and gets a little snarky with people who donít seem to be making any real effort whatsoever--Snape.
Part of a large family, a bit insecure, and not as good at sports as Iíd like to be--Ron.
Often feeling thrust into a position of leadership, but not always sure exactly how I should best go about it (or if!), or whether Iím up to it at all--Harry.
Feeling like fate has ďlocked me inĒ to an uncomfortable and confined spot, and feel restless at not being allowed by circumstance to have the freedom to use my best talents for the betterment of myself and others--Sirius.
Out-there dreamer girl who marched to a different drummer--Luna.
On a somewhat related note, sometimes seen as a bit of an odd duck, often joked about, but on-target more often than people realized--Trelawney.
Quietly working behind the scenes for the good in less ostentatious ways, but no less committed (and a true Ravenclaw!)--Flitwick.
Long red hair, smart, loving wife, devoted mother, strongly intolerant of bullying, friends with some rather unpopular off-beat people whom many others reject, well-liked by her teachers--Lily.
Sometimes something of a chicken-liver until the chips are down, and sometimes a bit too fond of the easy life--Slughorn.
Took a long-growing up period to come into my best self--Neville.
There are also times when I get a vibe of attitudes and ideas and feelings in common with Dumbledore and Lupin, though I canít quite put a finger on them.
Of course there are some characters, good and bad, whom I donít really feel commonality with, but these are pretty few and far between. As I said, though, I think this connection factor is part of JKRís writing genius. She can make us feel an affinity for something about just about any character, from Dumbledore to Narcissa to Stan Shunpike, shy of maybe Greyback or Umbridge. Well, but, hmm, okay, I do love cats...and steak... ;) I'll have to think about this... ;)

I don't know which character i could relate to the most, but i can tell you who I Would like to be compared to. :)
Regulus Arcturus Black.
Definitely one of the most mysterious characters. I also think he was quite brave and clever, found Voldemort's secret and all that. However, JKR spent so little time on him..
I want to know his early life, relationship with Sirius, time he spent at Hogwarts, Death-Eater life, decision to betray Voldemor, and his death.

I feel that I am most like Neville was in the early books. I have always been clumsy and lacked self-confidence. And I have always had other of his characteristics. I was especially happy with the way he ended up, being a hero. It made me feel that there is hope for me yet. You da man, Neville!!

Although in many ways my life is much better than his (I am not a werewolf, for one), I identify most with Remus. We are both quiet and introverted yet assertive when we need to be. We both care deeply for people, perhaps a little too deeply. And nobody wants to hire us :P

Had talents as a youngster but maybe didn't utilize them fully, loyal to friends, rode motorbikes, got into trouble a fair bit and enjoyed pushing boundaries. In adult life somewhat frustrated at opportunities available for some time. Finding a kind of enjoyment at last in using some skills more productively. You've guessed it..

Remus Lupin - he is portrayed as an outcast, always on the fringe, but those who know him best, love him.
February 16th, 2013, 5:34 pm
I never really thought about it.
My initial answer is Harry, but not because we share anything in common. I have wonderful parents. I did well in school and was never attacked there. And so on.
But I relate to him, I think, because he was our POV character.
Other than that? Yeah, I dunno. None of them that strongly I guess.

I feel that I'm a mixture of the trio in many respects. I try to be brave while at the same time have a great love of knowledge and learning. Also, I can sometimes be insecure or jealous like Ron.
If I had the power to be able to dive into the books and live in the HP world then the person who I think I'd get along with best would be Ron. He always says what I'm thinking and calls Harry on his 'hero complex' at times.

I think I would relate to Hermione, only because I like books. I am also quiet at times and people ignored me because I had my nose in a book so much.

I'd say I relate to snape. I can relate to him because when I love I love with all my heart. I would and have gone to all lengths to protect the ones I love. I wish I could say I have as much bravery as snape but I can only hope to be that brave one day.
I love for always.

A bit of McGonagall and a bit of Snape. Both loved deeply but didn't "wear their hearts on their sleeves." Both were "no nonsense" people and neither was a "touchy-feely" type. I'd like to think I'd be as brave as either one. But Sev will always be my hero.
March 5th, 2013, 11:52 pm
Snape - because my word is my bond and I never forget a deliberate humiliation
McGonagall - because I don't tolerate foolishness in people who were taught better
The Malfoys - because I'd sacrifice anything and anyone to protect my kids (and no, I don't think Lily's "final stand" was anything spectacular - any mentally stable mother would do the same) without batting an eyelash

Mainly Severus Snape, Remus Lupin and Luna Lovegood.
Also Bellatrix Lestrange and Sirius Black, but to a (clearly) lesser extent.

I relate to Hermione best. I've always been bookish and perfectionistic, and it seems I only become more so as I get older. When I was 10-12, my two best friends were boys, but I also experienced very lonely times in my life where I was slow to make friends, just as she was at the beginning of PS/SS.
I definitely relate to Snape too, you know, with the whole unrequited love thing.

Harry sometimes, since my family isn't always the best sometimes. Sometimes they're there, sometimes they're not.
Neville, since I've gotten stuck with teachers who were real jerks, and I know what it's like to be picked on and belittled. Had one that was like Umbridge and Snape combined. She looked like Umbridge and had her attitude and said stuff about me to me that was a lot like Snape. Had one in high school that was like Snape. The so and so said one thing to me and the complete opposite to my mother. Played dumb on purpose and let my mom know the truth. Got transferred out of her class pretty soon after that.
Tonks, since I can tend to be clumsy every so often.
