I've checked the Poll Suggestions thread as far back as Oct. '07, and will be developing some new polls based on those ideas given by forum members. I hope to post one new poll per week, and have each poll run for 10-14 days. Please continue to post your poll suggestions!

NEW POLL: March 31, 2008 to April 13,2008

This poll was suggested by Chemyst, back in Nov. '07.

Who would you prefer to have as your partner in a fight against Death Eaters?
Please choose one name from each pair... results will be posted in percentage of votes received; for example: #13) Fred 65%, George 35%

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape?
2) Ron or Hermione?
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid?
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid?
5) Ron or Neville?
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick?
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin?
8) Sirius or Remus?
9) Ginny or Hermione?
10) Hermione or Luna?
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody?
12) a centaur or a house-elf?

Added Edit: I changed the title of this thread as a compromise between the original title of "Who would you choose to "have your back" in a fight with Death Eaters?" and the question in the thread of "Who would you prefer to have as your partner in a fight against Death Eaters?"

It feels like a Trivia quiz So:

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? Snape, with all due respect to Hagrid...
2) Ron or Hermione? That's a tough one. I think Ron, even though the first instinct was to say Hermione.
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? The Giant Squid!
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? The Giant Squid!
5) Ron or Neville? Neville. Since DH I totally adore this character.
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? McGonagall. Nothing personal against Filius, of course
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? Molly "Not my daughter" Weasley
8) Sirius or Remus? Sirius
9) Ginny or Hermione? Ginny? I dunno.
10) Hermione or Luna? Hermione
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? Mad Eye
12) a centaur or a house-elf? A house elf, certainly.


Julia H. - Mar 31, 2008 1:34 am (#2 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape?
Snape, as always. (Hagrid would also be a great partner but with Snape I'd feel the mission could not go wrong.)
2) Ron or Hermione? Hermione. (But we would miss Ron.)
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? Firenze.
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? I'd rather go alone... Let's say the Giant Squid and I'd stay out of water.
5) Ron or Neville? Difficult. Perhaps Neville because he never deserts his friends.
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? Prof. McGonagall.
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? Molly.
8) Sirius or Remus?
This is another difficult question because each of them seems to have something the other one lacks. Perhaps I'd choose Remus, the cooler-headed of the two. (I'd insist on the necessary supply of Wolfsbane Potion though.)
9) Ginny or Hermione? Hermione. (Harry chooses her in spite of his love for Ginny.)
10) Hermione or Luna? Hermione. (But Luna would be OK as well.)
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? Tonks. (Much more fun than Moody.)
12) a centaur or a house-elf? A house-elf.

8) Sirius or Remus? Sirius
9) Ginny or Hermione? Hermione
10) Hermione or Luna? Luna
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? Mad-Eye Moody, for the experience

Mrs Brisbee - Mar 31, 2008 6:19 am (#6 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? Rubeus Hagrid-- Snape would sell me out to keep his cover!
2) Ron or Hermione? Hermione-- although I wouldn't mind Ron.
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? Firenze-- are we fighting on land or at sea? I think centaurs can probably swim as well as a horse, so Firenze covers more bases.
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? Grawp-- he might be able to swim, or more likely stand on the lake bottom while everyone else has to tread water. But I'm pretty sure that in a land battle the Giant Squid would just lie there and be useless.
5) Ron or Neville? Neville-- but I wouldn't mind having Ron at my side either.
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? McGonagall!!!!
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? Tonks-- wouldn't mind Molly, but I'm not her daughter. Tonks is a trained Auror.
8) Sirius or Remus? heehee, Runs With Scissors, or Plays Well With Others? I'll take the quietly competent Remus Lupin
9) Ginny or Hermione? Hermione-- hands down.
10) Hermione or Luna? Hermione-- I wouldn't mind Luna, though.
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? Moody-- tough choice.
12) a centaur or a house-elf? A house-elf, I suppose. I assume that if the house-elf was being attacked by some random Death Eater, he would do something to protect himself. Or not. I might regret not going with that centaur....


Elanor - Mar 31, 2008 9:04 am (#7 of 46)

1) Severus Snape (though I'd really like to have both!)
2) Hermione

8) Remus

Swedish Short-Snout - Mar 31, 2008 9:14 am (#8 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? Snape

5) Ron or Neville? Tough one! Ron
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? Flitwick

8) Sirius or Remus? Remus
9) Ginny or Hermione? Hermione
10) Hermione or Luna? Hermione
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? Moody
12) a centaur or a house-elf? A house-elf - as long as it's my house-elf.


freshwater - Mar 31, 2008 9:25 am (#9 of 46)

Given some of the reservations people seem to have over #12, I should have clarified that I was thinking of a friendly centaur and a loyal, family house elf....but feel free to take it however you see it.

Who would you prefer as your partner in a fight against Death Eaters?

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? Hagrid....a previous post had a good point about Snape needing to maintain his cover.
2) Ron or Hermione? Hermione...she seems to think faster on her feet....now if we were planning an attack, I'd rely on Ron's strategies.
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? Firenze...because he's more mobile.
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? The Giant Squid...Grawp may be more mobile, but I think the Giant Squid and I would understand each other better.
5) Ron or Neville? Before DH I'd have said 'Ron', but now after DH I'd have to say Neville.
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? I absolutely adore Minerva, but Filius was the dueling champion in his youth.
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? Molly was impressive, but I don't think she could rouse that kind of fervor for just anyone...so, since I'm not Molly's daughter, I'd choose Tonks.
8) Sirius or Remus? For a party I'd choose "Runs with Scissors" Sirius...for dependability and a cool head I'd choose "Plays Well With Others" Remus. (LOVE those characterizations, Mrs. Brisbee!)
9) Ginny or Hermione? Hermione...that 'thinks fast on her feet" thing again.
10) Hermione or Luna? This is a tough choice for me...but I'll go with Luna for two reasons: 1) my mind works more like Luna's than it does like Hermione's, and 2) if we lost, she'd be a lot more entertaining during the captured-awaiting-rescue phase.
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? Another tough choice....I think I'll have to go with Mad-Eye because of his many years of experience.
12) a centaur or a house elf? I can't get over the "on again, off again" temperament of the centaurs, so I'd rather have the powerful magic and devotion of a good house elf.


geauxtigers - Mar 31, 2008 2:57 pm (#10 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape?
2) Ron or Hermione?
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid?
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? (I mean he's really Dumbledore so...)
5) Ron or Neville?
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? (gotta go with my Head of house!)
7) Molly Weasley (after DH And Bella...) or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin?
8) Sirius or Remus?
9) Ginny or Hermione?
10) Hermione or Luna?
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody?
12) a centaur or a house-elf?


Madam Pince - Mar 31, 2008 3:28 pm (#11 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? (sorry Hagrid, I love you, but that one's an easy call...)
2) Ron or Hermione? (Girl power... )
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? (unless, of course, it's our GiantSquidMike, in which case... )
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? (See above. As far as I know, the giant squid is just a squid... right? Can't come on land? What good is that? I'm not going into the Lake looking for Death Eaters! )
5) Ron or Neville? (Hmmm, very tough. Sorry Ron, Neville studies more...)
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? (Easy...)
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? (Anyone who can take Bellatrix is OK by me...)
8) Sirius or Remus? (Umm, very tough. Cooler and more level-headed wins for me I guess. LOL, Mrs. Brisbee, on Runs With Scissors, or Plays Well With Others? -- )
9) Ginny or Hermione? (Again very tough. Hermione has trouble doing a patronus, though...)
10) Hermione or Luna? (Sheesh! Tough again!)
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? (Guess I just don't trust Tonks much...)
12) a centaur or a house-elf? (Arrghhh... tough, tough!)

Orion - Apr 1, 2008 11:53 am (#18 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? Snape. Smarter.
2) Ron or Hermione? Hermione, brilliant and resourceful, can think on her feet, knows lots of spells.
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? The Giant Squid, because the centaurs are so vague and can't make up their mind.
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? Grawp.
5) Ron or Neville? Ron.
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? Flitwick, he has been a champion duelist when he was younger and can't have forgotten everything.
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? Tonks, she's trained, that must be good for something.
8) Sirius or Remus? Remus, Sirius is mental.
9) Ginny or Hermione? Hermione, because I can't stand Ginny.
10) Hermione or Luna? Hermione.
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? Moody, more experienced.
12) a centaur or a house-elf? A house-elf, they are extremely powerful, and you can simply call them to get you out of here quickly.


Choices - Apr 1, 2008 12:34 pm (#19 of 46)

1) Severus Snape
2) Hermione
3) Firenze
4) Grawp

10) Hermione
11) Mad-Eye Moody

journeymom - Apr 1, 2008 4:55 pm (#20 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape?
2) Ron or Hermione? I'd rather have both!
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? Squid seems rather too short range.
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? Same as above. Though Grawp is a bit reckless!
5) Ron or Neville?
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick?
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? Molly was specifically protecting her daughter. Tonks was a trained Auror.
8) Sirius or Remus?
9) Ginny or Hermione? Only because we didn't see Ginny in action as much as we saw Hermione.
10) Hermione or Luna?
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody?
12) a centaur or a house-elf? Centaurs seemed to keep to themselves. House elves are loyal and have their own brand of magic.


mona amon - Apr 1, 2008 7:54 pm (#21 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape?

12) a centaur or a house-elf?


Liz Mann - Apr 2, 2008 4:15 pm (#22 of 46)

I haven't voted in a poll for aaaaages!

1) Severus Snape - Hagrid would be useful too, but against magic Snape might be better (if he's being open about fighting against the DEs that is)
2) Hermione - I think Ron's better than a lot of people give him credit for, but there's no doubt that Hermione is a very quick thinker in a crisis
3) Firenze - the squid wouldn't be much good unless the fight took place under water
4) Grawp - for the same reasons
5) Ron - this is a really tough one, but I think I'll go for Ron
6) Prof. McGonagall - she's one tough woman
7) Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin - she's a trained Auror after all
8) Remus - another really tough one, but I went for Remus because I think he would think clearer
9) Hermione - for the same reason I chose her before
10) Hermione - again for the same reason
11) Mad-Eye Moody - he has much more experience
12) house-elf - because they can use magic, which would probably help against the DEs


PeskyPixie - Apr 2, 2008 8:20 pm (#23 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? I'd trust Snape with my life during a fight. He saves Lupin mid-battle, and I have the added advantage of playing the 'damsel in distress'!
2) Ron or Hermione? The girl is incredible. What more can I say?
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? Truly a brave, loyal individual.
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? I hate Grawp as well, mona, but he's huge, seems to be mildly trainable and I'm hoping I won't need to fight Death Eaters in water (water is their element after all.)
5) Ron or Neville? He defeats a King Cobra without magic.
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? She's tough and doesn't waver from what must be faced. I loved how she deals with Slughorn!
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? Unless Molly wants to adopt me, of course.
8) Sirius or Remus? "Plays well with others ..." Sirius reminds me of Sonny Corleone - too hot-headed when a cool head is needed.
9) Ginny or Hermione? I want that bat Bogey hex on my side! I still want Hermione's brains and experience though.
10) Hermione or Luna? I love Luna, but Hermione has more experience ... and discussions of Nargles and Crumple-Horned Snorkacks would just make me more nervous and jumpy in battle.
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? He's one of the best Aurors around.
12) a centaur or a house-elf? Both groups are capable of extraordinary magic, but house-elfs are loyal to humans. ***ducks hexes from SPEW members!***
Goodness, I talk/write too much!


PeskyPixie - Apr 2, 2008 9:29 pm (#24 of 46)

Too late to edit this in, but I've waited for this poll for a while. It started with our discussion on whether we'd prefer Snape/Hagrid in battle and it has resulted in an incredibly fun poll.
Thanks, Freshwater!


Anna L. Black - Apr 3, 2008 1:58 am (#25 of 46)

Sirius reminds me of Sonny Corleone - too hot-headed when a cool head is needed. - Pesky
I just watched a part of "Godfather" yesterday, and you're so right!


Hieronymus Graubart - Apr 3, 2008 12:11 pm (#26 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? He can stand a lot and Snape has to keep his cover.
2) Ron or Hermione? This is tough. Since I have no better arguments, I'll be the old-fashioned gentleman, take Ron and keep Hermione save.
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? Firenze is the one centaur I would trust with my life.
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? There is no proof for DIGS and I would not like to find out that we all were wrong.
5) Ron or Neville? Tough again. I'll take Neville because Ron already got his point.
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? He is the duelling champion.
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? There is no chance that Molly will adopt me.
8) Sirius or Remus? Very tough. I want them both. But if I have to decide I'll take the more reasonable.
9) Ginny or Hermione? Although we didn't see much of it, I think Ginny is more of a fighter.
10) Hermione or Luna? I like Luna, but I don't understand how her mind works, and this may be a serious handicap when fighting as a team.
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? Only because Tonks already got a point. Mad-Eye is much more experienced, but sometimes I think he is becoming old.
12) a centaur or a house-elf? He can do magic most Death Eaters would not expect. This may also be true for centaurs, but I don't really know what they can do in a fight.


HungarianHorntail11 - Apr 3, 2008 5:02 pm (#27 of 46)

wynnleaf - Apr 4, 2008 9:48 pm (#28 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? Snape, of course. Powerful wizard, not reckless, very aware of whatever threats or dangers are about, can trick the enemy. In a fight Hagrid mainly has sincerity and raw strength.
2) Ron or Hermione? Ron.
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? Firenze
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? Grawp
5) Ron or Neville? Neville. By DH he was one of the most mature thinking of Harry's age.
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? Minerva. Flitwick seems to be falling down a lot.
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? Tonks for sure. 8) Sirius or Remus? Remus. He's much more cool and level-headed. Sirius is just plain reckless.
9) Ginny or Hermione? Hermione. She's the faster thinking one.
10) Hermione or Luna? Tough one. Maybe Luna as she's very cool and also creative.
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? Mad-eye -- more experience.
12) a centaur or a house-elf? A house-elf, for sure.


katrira - Apr 5, 2008 5:37 pm (#29 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? Snape, he's very knowledgeable.
2) Ron or Hermione? Hermione, she's knowledgeable & fast thinking.
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? Firenze, since I think we'd be fighting on dry land.
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? Grawp, see answer 4.
5) Ron or Neville? Neville, since he has found the true wizard inside himself.
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? Tough choice, but Flitwick was a dueling champion and a smaller target (or is that movie contamination?)
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? Tonks, strictly because of her training.
8) Sirius or Remus? Remus, he's not a reckless hothead (even though I like Sirius) .
9) Ginny or Hermione? Ginny, I think she's nearly as smart as Hermione and after having to hold her own against all her brothers, cunning & quick.
10) Hermione or Luna? Hermione, she's more experienced.
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody? Moody, see answer 10.
12) a centaur or a house-elf? House-elf, more cunning and loyal.


Barbara J - Apr 5, 2008 7:48 pm (#30 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? Snape.
2) Ron or Hermione? Hermione.
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? Firenze.
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? Squid.
5) Ron or Neville? Neville.
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? ....good point about Flitwick being the dueling champion...I will still pick McGonagall by the slimmest of margins.
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? Tonks.
8) Sirius or Remus? Remus.
9) Ginny or Hermione? Ginny.
10) Hermione or Luna? Hermione.

-Nick


Chemyst - Apr 10, 2008 4:36 pm (#33 of 46)

1) Rubeus Hagrid or Severus Snape? But only because Snape would have conflicting motivations if he still has to keep his double agent status secret when fighting a DE. If we are talking about an emotionally unencumbered Snape, then I'd quickly change the vote and choose him. (‘an emotionally unencumbered Snape! Bwahaha!)
2) Ron or Hermione? even though she fights like a girl.
3) Firenze or the Giant Squid? after Umbridge met the centaurs; you still have to ask?
4) Grawp or the Giant Squid? One if by land, and two if by sea? and my apologies to Longfellow
5) Ron or Neville? 'cause Neville's da bomb
6) Prof. McGonagall or Prof. Flitwick? the jury is still out.
7) Molly Weasley or Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin? she is a trained Auror after all.
8) Sirius or Remus? go for the gusto.
9) Ginny or Hermione? 'cause bat boogies are messy.
10) Hermione or Luna? I think her composure and serenity would be unsettling for the DE's.
11) Tonks or Mad-Eye Moody?
12) a centaur or a house-elf? We have canon for this one.

1) Hagrid - Snape couldn't/wouldn't betray his position
2) Hermione - close one, but she would know how to heal any injuries I suffer
3) Firenze - if I'm not in the water, the Squid is useless
4) Grawp - he would distract them
5) Neville - he is his parents' son
6) Prof. Flitwick - although either is good and both seem willing to aim to kill, he's just too cool
7) Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin - I'm not Ginny so Molly's no help
8) Sirius - although Lupin was the only Order member not injured in the battle at the Ministry, I think Sirius was better
9) Ginny - she has more of a mean streak, which would match my style
10) Hermione - she's smarter when it comes to knowing spells
11) Mad-Eye Moody - I think he's the only Order member outside of Dumbledore that could actually instill fear in DEs
12) house-elf - they have the powerful magical ability when they use it, and the knives in the ankles are a bonus

I took a pass on #6 the first time. I have decided Flitwick. Katrira won me over with the "he makes a smaller target" reason.

freshwater, I sent you some emails about one of the old polls. I wonder, did you get them?


freshwater - Apr 13, 2008 12:21 pm (#37 of 46)
I just checked, PAH, and I did receive them. Thank you for calculating the 2nd generation names poll... I had not realized that it had never been completed. I'll post your data now...
Hmmmmm... seems S.E. Jones closed that poll in December, and it is no longer possible to add a post to that thread. I'll go to the hosts with this.....

Here are the results of the "Who would you choose for a partner in a fight with Death Eaters?" poll:

1) Rubeus Hagrid: 27%, Severus Snape: 73%
2) Ron: 13%, Hermione: 87%
3) Frienze: 73%, The Giant Squid: 27%
4) Grawp: 47%, The Giant Squid: 53%
5) Ron: 33%, Neville: 67%
6) Prof. McGonagall: 70%, Prof. Flitwick: 30%
7) Molly Weasley: 37%, Nymphadora Tonks-Lupin: 63%
8) Sirius Black: 33%, Remus Lupin: 67%
9) Ginny: 43%, Hermione: 57%
10) Hermione: 80%, Luna: 20%
11) Tonks: 3%, Mad-Eye Moody: 97%
12) a centaur: 0%, a house-elf: 100%

And so, brains (Hermione) wins out over beauty (Ginny), brawn (Ron), and looniness (Luna) . Also, experience (Mad-Eye) wins big over youth and spunkiness (Tonks) . And experience (Tonks) also wins out over emotion and determination (Molly). And finally, scrawny, subservient house-elves win out over big, strong, blustering centaurs with no contest.

The characters with the most decisive votes are:

- a house-elf w/100%,
- Mad-Eye Moody w/97%,
- Hermione w/80% & 87%,
- Firenze and Snape tie with 73%,
- McGonagall w/70%,
- Neville and Remus tie w/67%.

Thanks to everyone who participated!

Let's not forget that 'brainy' Snape wins out over 'brawny' Hagrid.


geauxtigers - Apr 13, 2008 8:11 pm (#40 of 46)

Yeah, but Hagrid has Giant blood! The spells just bounce off! LOL Snape is more likely to go down. Hagrid can pick the DE up and throw him or something...


PeskyPixie - Apr 14, 2008 6:05 am (#41 of 46)

Good point! However, Snape is more likely to go down keeping his promise to protect me while Hagrid would abandon me for his crazy menagerie!


Julia H. - Apr 14, 2008 8:03 am (#42 of 46)

LOL, Pesky! Hagrid does seem to be crazy about his crazy menagerie! BTW it is the first time you have mentioned Snape made a promise to protect you.


Orion - Apr 14, 2008 8:13 am (#43 of 46)
LOL geauxtigers! Hagrid could really throw a DE and use him as a club or something, or simply sit on him.


PeskyPixie - Apr 14, 2008 8:59 am (#44 of 46)

Julia, there is no way I'd want Snape unless he promised that his skills would be used to protect me and that he wouldn't chuck me to Nagini and fly off to find the Potter boy for the Greater Good!

Seriously, I think Snape is a better choice for the 'Greater Good' as he is so intelligent, skilled and focused on his goal. He wouldn't be sidetracked by spiders. Hmmm, I feel another Rubeus vs. Severus coming on ...


PatPat - Apr 15, 2008 3:05 pm (#45 of 46)

Aarrgghhh! I'm sorry I missed this poll. I was ROFL over Mrs. Brisbee's explanation of the Giant Squid on land.


geauxtigers - Apr 15, 2008 8:14 pm (#46 of 46)

Hmmm, I feel another Rubeus vs. Severus coming on ...
**Stands ground ready to fight** This would be a good poll! Who'd win in a fight? LOL.
