My Harry Potter Fix: Week 20

Just a reminder of the link-up rules:
Grab the button, follow your hosts & co-hosts: Kim, Tarole, Erinn, & Me, link back to us somehow, and most about Harry Potter!

This week's questions are about least favorites.  (NEXT WEEK: Harry Potter GIFs)

1. Least favorite student?  This is probably going to be a popular answer, but Draco Malfoy is my least favorite student.  He is arrogant and obnoxious, and totally deserved a punch in the face from Hermione. 
2. Least favorite Muggle? Petunia Dursley.  One could probably argue that the whole Dursley family is awful.  True.  BUT she is my least favorite because she knows that this magical world exists.  She turns her back on her sister, and she treats Harry like pond scum.  At least Vernon is just an ignorant jerk.  And Dudley is sorta ok in the end.
3. Least favorite Deatheater?  Again, I'm going to have to pick a Malfoy here.  Lucius Malfoy is an arrogant jerk who thinks that he can do anything he wants by throwing his money around.  Worse than that, he's actually a COWARD.  Even after he realizes that he means nothing to Voldemort, he doesn't come to his senses and join the Order of the Phoenix or fight back.  He just sits there cowering. 
4. Least favorite teacher?  The obvious answer for me here is Umbridge.  But since I've already ranted about her plenty of times on this link-up, how about I pick someone new?  Though I've come to appreciate the character of Professor Snape, he is, in terms of teaching, my least favorite teacher.  He shows obvious favoritism toward his own house.  He gets angry with a student who knows and wants to answer questions in class.  He demonstrates obvious hatred toward Harry, and he isn't much better to Ron.  I know that he was putting on an act so noone would ever know that he loved Lily, but I think he overcompensated. 

As always, feel free to share your question ideas with this form

I'm not terribly fond of Snape either but I love the scene that you grabbed the pic from. : ) I love when he rolls his eyes and adjusts his sleeves and then BAM! Cracks me up every time.

Oh, I love when Hermione punches Malfoy. So, so, so much :) I agree about the Malfoys - they always seemed to be arrogant, but only went so far as being deatheaters because it was advantageous for them at the time. The second Voldemort disappeared, Lucius tried to claim he had been imperiused. Not exactly loyal followers, like Bellatrix. And I do agree that Snape has his reasons, but some of the things he does to Harry are still unexcuseable. He's a teacher, after all!
