|02:38 pm - Who wins in an hpFriday5|
1."Batshit" Bellatrix LeStrange vs. Narcissa "Not a Sissy" Malfoy
Trixie, hands down. She has nothing to lose and no sense of self. Cissa would be too worried about protecting her looks etc.
2. Remus "Moony" Lupin vs. Fenrir "Will Eat Your Children" Greyback
Lupin. I think he too has very little to lose, although he may not feel that way now that he's hooked up with Rainbow Brite. He also has the flame of self-righteousness on his side.
3. Gilderoy "Blonde Ambition" Lockhart vs Ludo "The Wasp" Bagman
Wouldn't that be awesome. It would be like the ultimate "slappy" fight. Bagman, I would have to guess would win. But it would still be funny to see.
4. Severus "Don't Call me Snivellus" Snape vs "Seriously" Sirius Black
Both guys with tremendous chips on their shoulders, anxious to prove something. This would be the most intense matchup. I have to say Black though. Neither of them is above fighting dirty, but he's particularly crafty and the only time Snape ever got anything over on him was when he was distracted with holding off Lupin from Harry.
5. Neville "Stubefy" Longbottom vs Peter "Pathetically Pitiful" Pettigrew
Pettigrew is a pretty good wizard, for a coward. I gotta think he'd take it, but points to Longbottom for enthusiasm and grit in the face of superior talent.
Current Mood: hyper
Completely off-topic, but would you be willing to send an email talking about your experience with Craig Enslin or "Robert Quill"? A friend of mine got burned by him and I'm raising a fuss to get him permanently banned by Lunacon and also in other cons around the area. An email based on your previous LJ post would be very helpful.
However, I wouldn't want you to feel like you're being forced to do something you're uncomfortable with.
Take your time. No rush, no pressure.
I am now qualified to read your HP posts because I have now read all 6 HP books. I started a couple of months ago and went straight through all 6 in a row.
I'd like to think good would win over evil but I'm not sure Lupin would beat Grayback. I hope so.
I do think that Neville could beat Peter. He did okay with his magic after joining the DA and I think he has a lot more in him to come out. Peter is the type who would just run away at the first opportunity.
Oooh my first venture into HP commentary.
Do you know what Harry Potter from Harry Potter and Mary Lennox from The Secret Garden have in common?
Cissy values her son more than her sister, and she'd take Bella out to protect Draco. She made that pretty clear in the beginning of book 6. Vanity fades rapidly in the face of desperation.
Fenrir is probably twice Lupin's size and ten times as vicious. Realistically, Lupin wouldn't stand a chance, but I suspect JKR will have him kill Fenrir in book 7 anyway.
Snape can read minds. Unless Sirius was a very good Occlumens, I doubt he'd do any better against Snape than Harry did.
