My husband and I were having a random conversation and somehow one thing led to another and we began to discuss who in the wrestling world would be our Patronus. I know weird. But if you knew us, this wouldn’t be weird at all, it’s pretty par for the course.
For those who might not know what a Patronus is this is how it’s explained on Pottermore :
As Professor Lupin told Harry in Prisoner of Azkaban, the Patronus is ‘a kind of Anti-Dementor – a guardian which acts as a shield between you and the Dementor.’ It’s also ‘a kind of positive force, a projection of the very things that the Dementor feeds upon – hope, happiness, the desire to survive – but it cannot feel despair, as real humans can, so the Dementors can’t hurt it.’
The Patronus has two forms, non-corporeal and corporeal. A non-corporeal Patronus can appear as ‘a thin wisp of silver’ that hovers ‘like mist’. Whereas a corporeal Patronus has a form that is clearly defined and is more than vapour or smoke.
The ability to cast a corporeal or non-corporeal Patronus is down to the skill of the witch or wizard. Each Patronus is unique to the witch or wizard who conjures it, and it’s possible, in some cases, for a Patronus to change.
So we got to thinking which wrestler would be our Patronus?
No hesitation, my husband quickly declared Randy Orton as his.
I, myself, haven’t not watched the world of wrestling in a long time, having grown up with a younger brother the only time I had watched it was with him. Now that we are both grown I haven’t kept up with the sport as much as he has. My picks were limited to what I remembered from back then. There were so many choices from Chyna, Lita, Trish Stratus to Goldberg, The Undertaker and Rikishi there were so many choices for me to consider. But the more I thought about it and the description on pottermore ‘a kind of positive force, a projection of the very things that the Dementor feeds upon – hope, happiness, the desire to survive’ and immediately I knew who would be my Patronus.
I remember how much joy my brother and I got from watching him enter any match and then watching him frog splash opponents was always a highlight. He was a joy to watch and a force to be reckoned with and I miss him everyday.
