Are You Fred, George, Ron, or Ginny? A Good, Old-Fashioned Quiz
If you, like me, spent much of your teen years perusing trashy magazines of the likes of J-14 and Tiger Beat, you may have a hankering for a good, old-fashioned quiz where you have to add up your answers yourself to get your results. Here is a quiz to find out which of the younger Weasleys you are that should have you sighing with nostalgia and remembering the fold-out posters you plastered all over your high school bedroom.
It’s your first day at Hogwarts, and you hear laughter as you (finally) enter the first class of the day. You realize a long tail of toilet paper is stuck to your shoe. What do you do?
A: Crack a joke at your own expense – the best way to get into the hearts of your peers is through laughter.
B: Try surreptitiously to get it off with your other foot and slide into a seat at the back, blushing like mad.
C: Turn around and leave. There is no way you could sit through class after that.
Harry has never heard of something called a “womblemaker,” but he’s heard he needs one to get through life in the wizarding world. You know it’s made up and someone is making fun of him. What do you do?
A: Go along with the joke. Start presenting him with different kinds of womblemakers and insist that he carry them with him at all times.
B: Laugh at him for being so gullible, then explain the truth.
C: Write the truth on a handmade card and slip it under his bedroom door, then run away before he can see it was you.
Your favorite sport is, of course, Quidditch, and you made it on the House team. Marcus Flint, the Slytherin captain, won’t stop making fun of your second-hand broom and hand-me-down robes. What do you do?
A: Grab a Beater’s bat and send a Bludger rocketing in his direction.
B: Try and tune him out. Maybe reconsider whether you need to be on the Quidditch team at all.
C: Respond with a remark so cutting Flint will want to crawl under the bench and die.
Mr. Weasley has managed to charm a vacuum cleaner to knit, but judging by the examples he proudly shows you, Hermione is a better knitter. He presents you with a set of knitted long underwear. What do you do?
A: Put them on and strut around the house. Tell everyone who asks (in horror) where you got them – that your dad knitted them special.
B: Sneak to your bedroom and hide them under the bed where they will stay until the day you die.
C: Take them back to your room and put them in a drawer. They may not win any beauty contests, but they’d keep you warm in a pinch. Besides, they go under your clothes, right?
During the very first DA meeting, you notice Zacharias Smith making faces while Harry’s talking. What do you do?
A: Wait until everyone’s trying out the first spell, then curse Smith behind his back.
B: Interrupt to call Smith out on his rudeness. No one disrespects Harry like that if you have anything to say about it.
C: Bide your time until Gryffindor faces Hufflepuff on the Quidditch pitch and take it out on him then.
You overhear a group of Ravenclaws saying that both Harry and Dumbledore are lying drama queens and that Voldemort is definitely dead. You’re swept away before you can say anything, but you remember who it was. What do you do?
A: Hire a dwarf dressed in full troll armor to run around the castle shouting the non-believers’ names and calling them poo-heads.
B: Glare at them across the Great Hall at the next opportunity. Mutter under your breath a couple of why-I-oughtas for good measure.
C: Slip a little bit of powdered Erumpent horn into their group’s cauldron during your next shared Potions class. Watch with glee as it explodes all over them with the next stir.
If you answered mostly As:
You are Fred and George Weasley. Sometimes it seems like nothing can crack your unflappable exterior. You can easily turn any situation into an opportunity to make a joke, and you’re not above stooping to some devious lows when it comes to revenge for wrongs done against you or your friends.
If you answered mostly Bs:
You are Ron Weasley. You might be easily embarrassed, but you are always loyal to your friends. When you can get out of your head, you’re a stellar Quidditch player and a quick thinker. You’re capable of both strong emotions and deep compassion, and anyone would be lucky to have you on their side in a tight situation.
If you answered mostly Cs:
You are Ginny Weasley. You are fiercely loyal, sharply witty, and always ready to take what comes your way. People love being around you because you’re both hilarious and kind, but they should also beware because no one can wield a Bat-Bogey Hex like you can.
