Harry Potter Moment of the Week (41): Favorite Hogwarts Ghost

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Uncorked Thoughts. The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/films/J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! A list of upcoming topics can be found here.

This week's topic is:
Favorite Hogwarts Ghost

First of all, I'd like to say this is a pretty awesome topic, just plain brilliant! Anyway, my favorite ghost is hands down, Peeves. I know, technically he is a poltergeist, but same difference, right? I think it's really cool that he has been at Hogwarts since it was built—it is said he came with the castle. I'm highly amused by all of his pranks and disasters; he never picks favorites—he tortures everyone. In short, Peeves keeps things interesting! ;) Whom did you guys pick as your favorite ghost?


  1. I'd have to pick the grey lady. I'm a Ravenclaw at heart!

  2. I didn't pick him just because I thought he's not really a ghost. I don't think he's even transparent as others. I did like him sometimes when he annoyed someone else besides Harry. When he took orders from the twins I loved him though :D
    Good pick!

  3. Peeves!! I can not believe they cut him out of ALL the films...I mean, there was so much comedy gold in his character! SO much material to use.Sigh. You're right too: he doesn't discriminate: everyone is fair game - except for Dumbledore ;-) He seemed to like the Weasley twins too which is another plus :D Wonderful pick! Oh and I agree this was a really neat topic ^^

  4. I do love how undiscriminating Peeves is in his pranks. No one was safe! He would've been an absolutely genius comic diversion in the movies! I also always imagine him and The Weasley twins got along like a house on fire! Great pick!

  5. Peeves is so much fun. He's constantly causing trouble and up to his bow-tie in shenanigans. My favorite part was when the Weasley's told him to give Umbridge a hard time. Fantastic choice :D Jaclyn @ JC's Book Haven.

  6. Aww Peeves! He's a close second for me :D. Love him so much. I missed him in the films! He made the books even funnier and I still get shivers reading the scene with Fred, George and Peeves!
