In the Harry Potter world, the wand chooses you, the Sorting Hat chooses your house, and Pottermore chooses your Patronus.
A Patronus, conjured using the Patronus Charm, is a silvery-white guardian animal (or in a few cases, a magical creature) that protects a witch or wizard against Dementors, and also serves as a messenger. To produce a Patronus, spell casters must summon their happiest memories. Whatever form the Patronus takes has some affiliation with the one casting the spell.
On Pottermore (the digital publishing home of the Potter franchise), users take an online quiz, answering a series of somewhat cryptic questions to determine their Patronus. But perhaps you aren’t sure why you got shrew (a real potential Patronus), and might be wishing you had some other options.
So what Patronus do you wish was yours? Not the Patronus you think you’d end up with, but the one you aspire to. Perhaps you want to follow in the Patronus hooves of Harry (stag), the paws of Ron (Jack Russell terrier), or the flippers of Hermione (otter). Or what about J.K. Rowling’s Patronus (heron)? Or maybe you want it to be a Fantastic Beast like an erumpet.
Vote up the Patronuses you wish were yours. Don’t see yours on this list? Add it - no wand needed!
