Top 5 Wednesday is created by Gingerreadslainey. Each week there is a new bookish topic, where everyone can join and create their top 5 list. You can find more information on the Top 5 Wednesday goodreads group. This week’s topic is:
FICTIONAL JOBS YOU’D WANT TO HAVE
– Any fictional career you’d want to have? Remember, T5W is always open to movies, tv, and video games as well.
Sometimes these T5W questions are a bit hard to answer. I struggled a bit to find specific careers to choose, so not all of my picks are careers. Bending the rules a little bit has to be OK, right? They aren’t too far off.
1.Teacher at Hogwarts
This was my first thought when I read this week’s topic. Being an Hogwarts teacher would be awesome. The only problem is that I don’t want to live at Hogwarts as an adult (definitely wish I went to school there as a kid though). I don’t know if teachers can live off campus? And I have also always wondered; doesn’t any of the teachers at Hogwarts have family, like a significant other or kids? (I’m so sorry that I’m a bad HP fan, haha) I had to researched this, and this answered my question:
Many Hogwarts professors reside at the school during the school year, though this is not always the case. During the 1980s, Minerva McGonagall owned a cottage in nearby Hogsmeade with her husband, later moving out after his death. A teacher could also visit a home by means of Apparition, the Floo Network, or a Portkey. In the summer of 1996, Severus Snape returned to his childhood house in Spinner’s End.
Those who remain at the school throughout the night seem to have private quarters, similar to apartments/flats, that are near or attached to their offices. –http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Professor
So my final answer is: Yes, I would love to be a teacher at Hogwarts! And also any other career where I got to live in the HP universe, have a wand and be magical would be awesome.
It would be awesome, deadly and really scary to be a Shadowhunter. A girl can wish, even though I definitely do not have the physical form needed to be a top trained/battling shadowhunter, haha. I picked this even though it isn’t really a career, but there is many career opportunities in the Shadowhunter world. I could work at one of the institutes or in Idris.
3.Dr Who Companion
This again isn’t really a career, but if I had to choose one fictional thing to do it would be to travel with the Doctor. I can’t describe how awesome that would be. In a way it is a job, saving the world and people over and over again from dangers.
4.Thief with The Gentleman Bastards
I don’t condone any types of thievery, but because The Gentleman Bastards is my favorite series and I love the characters, I would love to be one of the Bastard. Or maybe not, because that means I would be an orphan. But if I was an orphan living in Camorr in a different life/dimension, my highest wish would be to be one of the Bastards.
To be a wizard with magical powers and a detective, both at the same time like Harry Dresden from The Dresden Files, sounds really awesome!
