Day 17 – My Patronus

So for anyone who doesn’t know (and seriously, y’all should know this by now), a Patronus is from the Harry Potter books. It is a spell that creates essentially a sort of spirit guardian in animal form that is capable of chasing away Dementors, evil creatures who are able to steal happiness away from people. When I saw this was the topic, I honestly wasn’t sure if they were speaking literally or metaphorically. When dealing with fictional concepts, it’s sometimes hard to tell.

So I’ll start with this: what do I use as a Patronus in my real life? The answer for me would be theatre. I adore it. There is nothing like the feeling of being onstage and having the support and camaraderie of the cast, the crew, and the audience. I haven’t been able to take part in a show for a while now, but nothing is able to lift me up like that does.

Going back to Harry Potter, of course, you can’t end a post about Patronuses without taking an online quiz to see what yours would be, and if you’re going to do that, you might as well take the quiz written by J.K. Rowling herself over at Pottermore. And it turns out:

That’s pretty cool!
