Nova Castleberry is a fifth year Slytherin with an obsession with something muggle and weird. Your favourite Jr. Editor sat down with Castleberry, another Jr. Editor, to find out just what that weird obsession is, so keep reading to find out! When asked where she’s from she replied somewhat hesitant like she didn’t remember. “Oxfordshire?” Seemed a little strange to me that the fifth year didn’t know her own hometown right off the top of her head… like… hello? Don’t you live there? I suppose living at Hogwarts for ¾ of the year, one could get a little turned around… right?
According to Nova her favourite class is Potions, which professor is it with? No idea, she only answered that it was her favourite because “like to do stuff with my hands.” If that’s the case, wouldn’t something like Herbology be better suited for her? Which brought me to my next question of why Slytherin? What made her think she was sorted into her house? “I have high ambitions and aspirations.” she told me, and I’m not sure I was ready, but after Hogwarts she wants to go on to be the Minister of Magic eventually! Really high aspirations for such a young girl. When asked what house she’d be in if she wasn’t sorted into Slytherin Nova very plainly said “No house, I would not be at Hogwarts.I’m colour blind, I only see the colour green.” I suppose it’s Slytherin or bust, am I right!?! **Editor Note: I apologize, all the other houses are just as great. We just have massive Slytherin pride.**
On the subject of Hogwarts I wanted to know what her favourite memory so far has been. Some would chose moments with their friends, or quidditch matches, or even the dances… No. Nova Castleberry chose her favourite memory as being what she had for lunch yesterday, which brings us to her weird obsession… TACOS. Now I know some of you are probably like me, confused and bewildered. Instead of fun memories with friends she remembers most fondly the tacos she had for lunch yesterday. Goldfish memory or just really good Tacos?!?
On the subject of food I asked Nova her favourite ice cream flavour at Fortescues, which happened to be more normal, despite the wildly abnormal girl. Toffee apple is her favourite flavour. Honeydukes, she prefers cauldron cakes but doesn’t eat sweets too often to stay in shape. Which sort of ties in with her activities outside of class.
Nova likes to run around on the pitch and practice quidditch when she’s not in class or busy doing house stuff. Why isn’t she on the team you ask? “I didn’t try out for the team because I didn’t think about it until it was near the end of the year.” Doesn’t mean you can’t hop on a broom and wizz around shooting quaffles making Slytherin proud Nova! Come on Castleberry! Score one for the team! However, since we were talking about quidditch, I asked her what professional team she supported. Her answer was more confusing than the taco’s! “No favourite team because I don’t watch it.” after which, she cried and asked me loudly why I was asking her all these questions. Sorry Nova! Owl post is gonna do what Owl post is gonna do!
