The Harry Potter Characters I Would Be Best Mates With

Hello, hello! Long time, no see, friends! I’m sorry I’ve been a bit absent lately. 

Alright, I know I haven’t been absent absent. I’ve been here, but it just takes me forever to reply to your comments, and I’m sorry!

The truth is… I got a small side freelance job and it is draining the life out of me. I don’t work very often, but it still makes me want to take a break for the rest of the day after working.

Also, after my June 24-Hour Readathon, I will admit to you right now that it took me two weeks to finish Muse of Nightmares. I am just a little bit ashamed.

On top of that, I really want to work on my WIP right now. It’s very important to me, and I don’t think I can get much done when school starts again. I’m just having so many ideas, and while I love blogging, writing has been a part of me for so much longer!

And finally, I’m having a lot of fun family things going on (I celebrated both of my grandparents’ birthdays recently! 🤗), since I’m home for the summer. It’s not bad at all, since I just love spending time with my family (and I’ve been cleaning our house for parties and redocorations). But! This also means that I can’t post as often as I thought I would.

But enough about me. On with the actual post!

I was inspired by this post on Pottermore, and since I love Harry Potter and most of the characters, I figured it was only a matter of time before I made a post like this!

Remus Lupin

I’m not sure what it is, but I’ve always loved Remus. He is my #2 (or #1, depending on my mood) character ever. 

For some reason, I have a strong connection to him. I mean, we both love books. We both love chocolate. We both like school, and wouldn’t mind being teachers. But most of all, we also want adventure beyond reason. 

I’ve always thought that I would be friends with Remus if, you know, I had been born during the same year as him and if I was an actual British witch. But alas, I am none of those things, and so our friendship will never be. 

Luna Lovegood

Luna seems like a great person, and it honestly saddens me that so many of her classmates make fun of her. 

I mean, her father runs a magazine? And she likes to paint? And she’s also very nice, considerate, and overall just wants to have some friends? That sounds like my kind of person, right there. I would totally be friends with Luna! 

Hermione Granger

Listen. Hermione and I are very similar. We both love books, we have both lived most of our lives with Muggles, and we also… are  interested in learning, but not in the school system.

Hermione is sometimes a little bit too much stressed out by the grading system, and honestly, so am I. Can’t I just learn things without being measured on my ability to remember every little detail? That would be great, thanks. 

I can also be bossy as heck, almost like Hermione was, but I also feel like that part of our shared personality traits would get in the way. 

Anywho, I bet I would have been Hermione’s friend. I would have let her practice spells with me, as long as I could do the same with her. 

Which brings me to…

Harry Potter

Okay, okay. This might sound like a cheap answer, but hear me out! 

I have claimed, time and time again, that Harry and I are basically the same person, with just a few minor setbacks. We are so alike in personality that I am very positive I might have made the cut for the Golden Trio. You could have been reading about the Hogwarts adventures of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Xandra, I tell you! But unfortunately, again, I was born way too soon, and in a completely different country. 

However, Harry and I would have probably been friends. More for his sense of humor and friendship loyalty than anything else. 

That, and Harry has been my #1 favorite character lately. Maybe it has something to do with our similarities! 

And, that’s it! Honestly, I would love to be friends with most of the Harry Potter characters, but I can’t just name them all.

  1. I agree, I think I would be good friends with everyone on this list! Although I would probably add Neville as well because he’s one of my favorites in the series.

  2. I 100% want to be friends with all of these characters too. Lupin is probably my #1 character as well – he goes through so much but he’s still kind and good and thoughtful, and it makes me so emotional!! I just want to sit down with him and eat chocolate and drink butterbeer and talk about our feelings!!!
    Anyway. Being friends with any of the Golden Trio would be incredible. And Luna, of course!! I also think I would want to be friends with Ginny, though if I met her I would probably just fall in love immediately (which could be awkward – esp if Harry was there).

    1. Yes, I love Lupin so much! He’s been my favorite character for about 7 years, but recently, Harry has captured my heart a little more. 😂 Lupin’s life story is just so sad yet interesting, compared to a lot of the other characters. And if we were friends, we would surely share a love of chocolate!

      And Ginny would be a great friend, as well! She’s very loyal. I think, if I was friends with the Trio, Ginny might be my friend in our later Hogwarts years, kind of like how Harry paid more attention to her when he was older. 🙂


  3. Ahh… I love this!!! I wish I could be friends with almost all of the Harry Potter characters but you have some amazing ones here!!
    Lupin seems like a person who would be so easy to get on with and would be a calming presence (when he isn’t a werewolf of course) and if he would always offer me chocolate that would be great!!
    And Luna would be such a great friend too so caring and honest which I love– I feel like she would be one of the best people to go to for advice!! 😊
    And I would love Harry for his humour and loyalty as well!! And of course Hermione too– I think she would be such an inspiring friend!!
    Ok I have gushed enough now 😂 Great post– I loved reading it!! 💛

    1. Yes, I would be friends with all the HP characters if I could! I think I’m very similar to Remus, and I think we would have gotten along very well! And of course, eating chocolate wouldn’t hurt, either!

      Luna is so sweet, and I think she would be great to talk to, and very supportive. Basically, a lot of the main characters would be awesome friends!

      Haha, thank you, Sophie! 💛

  4. You’ve had a busy summer! I hope your WIP is coming along nicely and you enjoy being home with your family 🙂.
    I think Luna would be such a supportive friend! She’s so gentle and kind—it’s hard to see anyone not getting along with her. Hermione reminds me of some of my more driven, easily-stressed friends hahaha. She’s probably someone who benefits from a therapeutic conversation with a buddy after a stressful test. Being around her would definitely motivate me too to work harder.
    I think that I would also be friends with Neville. He gives me wallflower vibes, and those are the types of people I usually find myself drawn to. Also, Ginny seems like a chill, down to earth person to hang out with!

    1. Thank you! 😊 Sometimes we all need to take some time off of blogging.

      I agree! Luna sounds like she would be such a sweet and supportive friend, and great to talk with. And I think I would get along with Hermione very well, although we might also clash since we’re so much alike! 😂

  5. I think my group of girl pals would include Luna and Hermione too. They’re really interesting and intelligent – and Luna’s curious point of view would be nice to hear, and how awesome would it be to talk about books with Hermione all the time?? 😀

  6. Ahh loved this post!!
    I definitely would be friends with everyone you mentioned on this list – especially Hermione! 🙂
    I think I’d get along with Ginny too, and maybe the twins, although they would probably annoy me with their antics haha.

  7. Ohmygosh this post makes me so happy!! Remus & Luna are definitely 2 of the most underrated characters in the series! Aside from them, I honestly think I’d be besties with Neville since we’re both awkward & MAJOR klutzes 😂

    1. I make a lot of awkward mistakes, myself, so it would be comforting to hang out with someone like Neville, who could roll with it from knowing what it’s like!


  8. This was such a fun post!! I am currently rereading Harry Potter and I have grown way more attached to Neville and Harry than I was when I was younger, I’d love to be friends with them! I have also always loved Ginny Weasley, I feel like we would get along pretty well!

  9. I LOVE Harry Potter, I’m so glad I found this post! Let’s see…..My favorite HP characters are also Remus and Luna, I also like Dobby, McGonagall, Dumbledore and Lily. Remus is just almost perfect to me, except that he let his friends bully Snape; I get why, since they were so loyal and kind of his only friends, but still. Luna is above all the drama, which I love. If I could befriend any fictional character, it would be the ones I mentioned, plus Anne Shirley. I loved her and feel that we are kindred spirits 😊😊😊

    1. Thank you! Those are interesting choices for HP friends! I think it would be interesting to be friends with Dobby or another house elf. I also get why being friends with Remus would be hard for that reason, but I also think it would be difficult to stand up for Snape in that situation. And I love the idea of Anne as a fictional friend! She sounds like a great person to be around 🙂


      1. Thanks for the reply! Yeah, it would be very difficult. At least he realized the error as an adult, and did the best he could to control his friends as a kid. I agree about Anne, she’s so amazing!


  10. This is such a fun post! I feel like I definitely would be friends with Hermione and Luna — Luna just seems like she would make for such a fun friend, and like you said, Hermione and I are similar in that we both love books! (And I love that point you made about both you and her stressing out too much about grading; I’m the exact same way 😭) Loved this post, Xandra!! And hats off to you (I don’t know why I just used that expression but I’m going with it lmao) for working on your WIP, that’s amazing 💕

  11. I love this post SO MUCH!! It made me so happy to see that Harry is your favorite character, because he’s also mine, and I feel like that’s such an underrated response and that our dear Harry is pretty underrated. BUT I LOVE HIM SO MUCH.😭❤️

    I agree with pretty much everything you said here! I also feel like I would be close friends with Harry, Remus, and Hermione. (There aren’t many characters I think I COULDN’T be friends with lol, besides the obvious Death Eaters, Voldemort, Draco, and Umbridge.) I can also see myself being close with Ginny Weasley and Ron!

    1. Thank you so much, Olivia! Yes, I love Harry so much! I think he is a bit underappreciated, and I wish that more people had him as their favorite character! I actually wrote an essay about him recently, and that made me fall in love with his story all over again. ❤️

      I agree! I could probably be friends with most of the characters if I had the opportunity! I would be friends with anyone if that meant I also got to attend Hogwarts! 😂
