Sooo… who got their Patronus on Pottermore?

The Patronus quiz was such an anticipated aspect to the Pottermore website, but I feel as if half of the feedback were from users disappointed at what they had received.

Salmon? Mole? Not exactly the types of animals that you would think could protect you from a soul-sucking Dementor, now are they?

I honestly don’t mind mine. I took the test twice and, despite the different questions, ended up with the same result: Dragonfly.

Looking on the complaints, however, it seems as if what users really wanted was an explanation as to how the patronus matched them. I was certainly curious as well. After seeing my result, I was scrolling around the screen, trying to find anything that detailed the attributes of my patronus, to see if I could apply any of my patronus’ characteristics to me.

No such luck.

I took to my friend the Internet and started looking for dragonfly symbolism and the like, and I liked what I saw. Apparently dragonflies symbolize change and transformation, adaptability, joy, the realm of emotions, the lookout for illusions and deceits, and a connection with fairy realms.

Considering I’ve recently started taking serious steps toward the future I want for myself, with writing in particular, it made sense to me. I’m happier writing, whether it be my novels or articles about animals or video games, I’m more in-tune to my goals and trying to change my habits in light of them.

And, even as a kid, I’ve always had a fondness for fairies, haha!

What about all of you? Anyone else interested in this aspect of the Harry Potter world?

    This sounds pretty cool, though I don’t know if your link is working.

    I did the patronus quiz as well and got a red squirrel. Pretty happy with that.
