My wand is Spruce wood, and the traits suit me perfectly (bold, good sense of humor). I'm very bold in real life, and everyone tells me I'm funny, so yeah. :lolsmilie:

I love my wand!

I've had it since April 2012 on the day Pottermore opened to everyone, and I'm glad to have some new people to tell about it :)

It's Cedar, 14 and a half inches, with a unicorn tail hair core and is reasonably supple.

The cedar element suggests that I'm perceptive, which I always felt I was, (if perhaps a little over-sensitive) and Ollivander says you can't fool a cedar carrier. Then I was placed in Ravenclaw, which I always hoped for! (And who can fool a Ravenclaw eh?) It also says "The witch or wizard who is well-matched with cedar carries the potential to be a frightening adversary, which often comes as a shock to those who have thoughtlessly challenged them." Which, again, I have to say, I think works very well for me. In the workplace, for example, people universally seem to think I'm the calmest, most chilled out person. But, people who know me very well will tell you, I can have a very fierce temper! That statement about it coming as a shock after a thoughtless challenge just seems perfect.

The wand is particularly long, which suggests a dramatic personality, and I am often accused of drama. I know, on one hand I say I'm calm and on the other I say I'm dramatic, but people generally have found that of me, they're both things I am known for, even if they don't sound right together.

Unicorn cores are considered by Ollivander to be "the most faithful of all wands," and I do absolutely love the idea of having my own wand. The wands really truly appeal to me, and I'm quite fascinated by the different designs and so on, while I might overlook other design elements of the books and films. I think my wand and I would be very loyal and faithful to one another.

So my wand tells me that i am a traveler, explorer, high achiever.
Im curious by nature and will gladly one day travel around the world, I like to explore,
and have my ambitions high set, even though i am a high school drop out and haven't
fulfilled any school after the age of 16, picked the wrong studies, I know where i am
heading and that i will be were i want to be in near future.

Aeternum, that sounds like a well-matched wand. And looks like you're in the right House! So goal-oriented :-)

GingerbreadWitch wrote:Surprisingly swishy- A wand with this flexibility will either surprise its owner by being surprisingly loyal or surprisingly unloyal and is most often known for doing the unexpected. It is usually great for charm work. Owners that are matched with wands of this flexibility are usually the type of people who have a hard time coming out of their shell or opening up, but once they do, others will find themselves drawn to their charming, fun-loving personalities. The owner usually adapts well to unexpected changes but may find it difficult to make hard decisions.


My wand's flexibility is Surprisingly swishy and I've been wondering what it meant. I got spooked while reading your description. It fits me perfectly. :D

Wand(Pottermore):Sycamore, 10" Unicorn core, surprisingly swishy!


I love your description of the wands!

Sycamore – Curious, Vital, Adventurous, will burst into flames if doing ‘boring’ magic repeatedly.


I grabbed the description of the cores off Pottermore:

Unicorn – Consisten, not easily turned to dark arts, Faithful, Loyal (weather their owner is an accomplished wizard or not). If mishandled the unicorn hair may ‘die’ and need to be replaced.

My wand sounds like a true Hufflepuff! I like all the work you did thanks so much.

Mine seems a bit dull but here we go.

Characteristics of Wand Owners Based on Wood
Vine- seeks a greater purpose, vision beyond the ordinary, hidden depths

Wand Talents
None apparently. :/

Wand Quirks
Vine- wands can emit magical effects upon the entrance of a suitable owner

Length
10 inches

Wand Core
Phoenix feather

Flexibility
Slightly yielding (What does that mean?)

Any guesses on what it seems for me?

What about 'Slightly yielding'?
