Potterthon Poll: Who's Your Favorite Hogwarts Faculty Member?

It's Poll Time!

And you thought your teacher was
a witch?
Another week, another poll! Yes, it's another battle of Hogwarts, but this time, it's the teacher smackdown. So who's your favortie Hogwarts teacher? Wise and, frankly, weird Dumbledore? Hardass with a gooey centre Mcgonagall? Husbandman's favorite, Hagrid? Or the tragic hero-or-dammit-is-he-a-villain, Snape? Well, time to choose a team! My prediction: a bloody, skin-of-the-teeth race between Snape and Dumbledore.

Let the voting begin, and may the odds be ever in your (team's) favor




Have we missed your favorite teacher from the poll? Hold up! Don't vote yet! Leave a comment, tell us who we've rudely overlooked, and their name will be up ASAP. Remember to head over to our giveaway form, as voting and commenting will gain you extra entries. If you haven't voted already, remember to vote for your favorite Hogwarts student, and why not head over and find out why Lauren wants the Dark Lord as her new BFF...



Love the new cover, or hate it, we know you want to read J.K. Rowling's first book in five years: The Casual Vacancy. Whatever you think, don't forget to enter the giveaway to win a pre-order, and other fantastic prizes!

    1. Yay! Some Hagrid love! My husband LOVES Hagrid. He quotes all his lines and walks around saying 'HARRRRMIINEEEEE'. One of the (many) reasons I love him :D

  5. Hahaha! Woot! Mcgonagall's in the lead! :O
    Honestly, I TOTALLY thought it'd be a Snape vs. Dumbledore poll... it'll be SERIOUSLY interesting to see where this goes :D

    ReplyDelete
  6. Snape!!!!!!!!! I always found anti heroes like him the most exciting and best complex characters! Snape will be forever awesome in my mind!

  7. It's so obvious . . . Minerva Mcgonagall!!!!!!! She's such an inner badass and she's someone who doesn't mind breaking the rules once in a while. ;)

  8. I have to go with McGonagall. I just adore her. :)

  9. This one was a little harder. I chose Snape though. He has always had a special place in my heart.

    ReplyDelete
  10. LOL, I find it funny that I didn't cry when Dumbledore kicked the bucket, but I lost it when Snape died. Cried for days, couldn't think about him without bawling my eyes out. lol, I still can't, start getting all emotional!

    ReplyDelete
  11. McGonagall! Cos she's badass!
    Ahhh how did I not know this event was going on D: I want to cry!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love McGonagall and Hagrid to bits, but if I had to honestly had to think about who I'd like to have as a teacher, it'd have to be Flitwick. I mean, his classes always sounded like so much fun in the novels! What with all the flying objects and whatnot...

    ReplyDelete
  13. So ummm....I actually have no idea who the people on the poll are except Dumbledore XP Please don't kill me! So he's the one I voted. Well actually, I sort of just realized that I know McGonagal but I accidentally clicked Dumbledore already so there you go! LOL

    SO Go Dumbledore? :P

    ReplyDelete
  14. It's got to be McGonagall! She's so hardcore, and yet has a really big heart at the same time! :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. RUMBLEROAR! Where is Rumbleroar?! Pfft! Hahaha!

    I chose Dumbledore! Hagrid and McGonagall would have been close joint second! I wouldn't have voted for her, but I noticed there's no Umbridge. Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm torn between Dumbledore and McGonagall, but Dumbledore won out this round.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I can't believe McGonagall is winning...she is pretty fierce. I totally voted for Snape though.

    ReplyDelete
  18. "After all this time?"
    "Always."

    Duh. Couldn't vote for anyone else.

    1. *sobs* YES YES YES. It's Snape vs. Dumbledore all the way for me. Can I vote twice?

      *runs away and cries*

      I'm not even kidding: I'm SERIOUSLY considering getting 'Always' tattoed somewhere upon my person O__O

  19. Can't beat Dumbledore for me! <3 I think I want to paint his words all over this planet. McGonagall is up there as well though! I love how tough she can be but then the fact that she's totally sweet and caring underneath. The fact that she screamed first? YEAH, I DON'T THINK I'LL EVER GET OVER THAT. And I need to go check out this post from Husbandman!

  20. I have to say McGonagall. I love her character, I love Maggie Smith, I love how she's Harry's friend and always ready to stand up to authority (be it Dumbledore or Umbridge) if she's protecting someone. She's a fierce lady and by far my favourite teacher in Hogwarts.

  21. I was torn between Dumbledore, who I love as a character, and McGonagall - but Minerva won out for me in the end! I think she's a brilliant character, and I love how she's so unbending with the students, but is always looking out for them, and she stands up for what she believes in. Such a difficult choice, though!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ugh, Sarah, this is so difficult! Here's a secret: People used to say that I looked like Snape, back when I was in grade school, didn't have bangs, didn't know how to use shampoo, etc. Man, I was a pathetic little nerd. Also, well, even though I loved my friends, I didn't go out looking for more of them and all.

    McGonagall reminds me of my favorite professor in high school, though. She's firm and unyielding but she cares so, so much. I've always liked her but learning about her in Pottermore made me adore her. In the end she won out. :)

  23. Why is my favourite Hogwarts teacher member not winning?! :D More people need to vote for Hagrid. ;) I love McGonagall too though. It's a tough call!

    ReplyDelete
  24. MCGONAGALL! (But I will always love Snape.)

    ReplyDelete
  25. voted for Snape, Snape, Severus Snape!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Tough choice but ultimately I went with Snape. I hated him, truly hated him until the third book and then I started rethinking his character and I just knew there was something good in him. There HAD to be.

    Besides.

    Always <3

  27. I voted for Hagrid...because who wouldn't love going to his CoMC class? And then I realised who wasn't on the list: LUPIN! I probably still would have voted for Hagrid, but there's nothing better than a Snape-Mrs.Longbottom boggart lesson.

  28. Snape, Snape, Snapity, Snape ;) <3

    ReplyDelete
  29. Voted for Minerva, but where's Lupin?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Snape *swoon* He had a special place for me from the beginning. In book 1, I liked it and it only grew into some sort of.. sick obsession :') Every time I hear Harry Potter, I instantly think 'SNAPE'

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm going to buck the trend and go for Madame Pomfrey. I like her style with plants :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Agh! I can't believe I've taken so long to get to this post!!!

    THIS IS THE HARDEST QUESTION EVER. ugh, you always pick ALL the GOOD characters. WHY?! Do I pick based on the most complex characters? The ones that surprised me or had hidden depths like Snape and Dumbledore? Or do I vote for the one I hold huge amounts of affection for? Or respect? Or just one that I would love to have teach me? WHY CAN'T I VOTE THEM ALL?

    For me it's a four-way showdown between Dumbly-dorr, Snape, McGonagall and Hagger. But this time (because tomorrow I'll likely have a different opinion), I'll go with the brilliant, quirky and possibly mad man; just as flawed as ordinary folk, and the greatest headmaster Hogwarts has ever seen <3

    ReplyDelete
  33. I voted for Snape-he's got a brilliant character, and he's really funny!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Another hard one! I love them all...chose Snape...love Lupin...and as much as I adore Hagrid, I don't think I'd want him as a teacher lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. yay to Dumbledore, second place goes to Minerva, third is Lupin, then here goes Profesor Snape :D

    ReplyDelete
  36. "After all this time?"
    "Always."

    oh snape T-T

    *runaway and cry*

  37. Guys Guys Guys! Where's Lupin?

  38. Severus Snape, because his story is heartbreaking.
