She’s by far not my favourite character, so you have no idea how surprised I was when I came to my conclusion. I’d pick Ginny! She’s funny, smart, head strong, rarely weepy, brave, trustworhty, has wonderful loving brothers and such a brave family-man husband, and 3 cool kids (and had quite a bit of fun in her younger years at school ;) Huh! I’d be Ginny, it seems so obvious I’m amazed I’ve never stumbled across how much I like this character! Hah thanks for the question I’ve never been asked before Leaky and my new view of Ms Weasley/Potter!

I would most readily swap places with Professor McGonnagall. She’s so independent and awesome that It wouldl be amazing to be her for just a few hours. I would also be very interested in teaching Transfiguration, also, because being a Hogwarts professor teaching any subject would be beyond cool.

I’d have to go with Fleur. She’s super fierce, has a wonderful family, fights for what she believes in, and is gorgeous to boot.

i would love to be hermione because she gets to go on all the amazing adventures and is in the trio. She is also the one that can get far in life because shes smart. She is allways there to help her friends and allways knows how her friends feel and are thinking. One big thing is she marrys Ron, gotta love ron<3

I would switch with teddy lupin. Why because we don’t know much about him, he is not a main character but i still hang out with potter, he can change his appearance like his mom, and he is a plain out boss. i love him

I would most deffinately trade places with either Ginny or maybe even Luna.
Ginny because she isnt affraid of anything that comes her way. She wants to make a difference, like Hermione. She truely wants to prove herself! Usually I would say Hermione but as Luna or Ginny I could be her best friend! haha! But as Luna, I could be so free of worry, and still be my artistic self! Im already not the most normal girl… but at least as Luna, I would be able to shake off rude comments, and express myself freely through fashion (thinking of raddish earrings and bottle cap necklaces ;D ), and through creativity! However I MAY decide I want to trade with Hermione… Im already very studious, but it could be fun to be Hermione!

I think I would like to switch lives with Xeno Lovegood. Writing his own paper, with his own press, and going on adventures with his daughter – exactly how I would love to live! I also love how Luna was free to paint whatever she wanted all over the house.

I would swap lives with Luna Lovegood. She’s wise and people always underestimate her and because of that she has a unique perspective.

I would probably want to switch places with Hermione, Luna or Ron. I honestly can’t decide. They are all great people and seem like they would have really fun and cool lives. And they’re all so different from each other so it’s hard to decide.

As tempted as I am to choose one of the trio I’m sure that they will be most people’s answers so I want to select a less prominent character in the series. I think I would choose either Fred or George, though preferably George seeing as he doesn’t die. They both have so much fun in life and really make the most of it. They were always quick with a joke and brightened the moods of everyone around them even if they did drive Molly insane.

if i had to switch, i would switch with ginny weasley. I am very much like her, i love playing sports like quidditch and i love being surrounded by a loving family she has. I am amazed at how loyal she is to her friends and espically how nice she is to luna and i would do that same! She is a little tomboy like me and i just love her character <3

Thats a hard question. i feel like every character has a hard life and background. I would want to swap life’s with Luna lovegood. She has a hard background but that just made her a stronger character that stays true to who she is. for that i respect her
