    Fleur Delacour

    I cannot believe we have not started a thread for poor, poor Fleur! *French angst!* Well, I'm going to start one with a hypothetical I have been wondering about lately.

    What do you all believe Fleur's Patronus would be? I try to come up with one, but always, someone else has it. Swan? No, that's Cho. Peacock, I'm pretty sure Lucius and Narcissa have dibbs on those. See what I mean?

    Does anyone have any ideas as to what animal can be associated with Fleur?

    Hmm...it would have to be something graceful, yet fiercely protective to meet Fleur's personality.

    Maybe a lioness?

    I don't know, I'm still kind of feeling a swan!

    Beautiful, graceful and like a veela, they turn incredably scary when you anger them (such as when your feeding them and you run out of kernels but they're still hungry) Also, they're fiercely protective, don't you get near their duck friends, those are THEIR duck friends.

    (Yes, I was indeed traumatized at age 11 by a pair of swans who wanted more corn when I had none. No, I do not suspect results are typical )

    Oh, Kasey, so I'm not the only one who's been traumatised by a swan! >.<

    Mmm, I really think a swan would suit Fleur - Kasey pretty much summed it up. Or something else that's beautiful and graceful but dangerous... snow leopard, maybe?

    Remember, too, that while a person's Animagus form tends to represent their own nature, their Patronus might represent something that protects them or is important to them - for example, Hermione has an otter (related to the weasel and therefore a link to Ron) and Harry has a stag because that was his Dad's Animagus form. So perhaps Fleur's Patronus could be something linked to Bill?

    Yeah, a couple of swans stole my piece of chicken when I was about 12. Which seems a little bit cannabilistic to me, but okay...

    The is canon evidence of this. Snape=Doe= Lily, Tonks=Immense four-legged creature (possible a wolf, IMO)= Remus.

    So I would say you could go with something that would remind her of Bill. I know it would probably be cliche or expected, but a wolf comes to mind. Or, perhaps the mythological Sphinx, because of the time he spent in Egypt. She didn't get as far as the Sphinx in the Triwizard Tournament, so there isn't any trauma there from that. Or, you could use the Egyptian Mau, which is a cat from Egypt.

    Though when I first thought about it, I have to agree a swan is the first thing that did come to mind.

    A swan would definitely be her animagus, me thinks. *keeping away from swans from now on *

    I think that something to do with Egypt could work. Bill is also the oldest of seven, so maybe a protective big brother type animal, like a lion? Ties in with the whole Gryffindor thing!

    *Sigh* the last two people in the whole wizarding world who would have Patronuses would be the aforementioned Malfoys. The only reason Fleur would have one would be because of Bill, in my humble, if impassioned, opinion. Therefore, I think it would be romantic if you came up with a Bill related animal! Plus, Patronuses ((i)(?) still not sure), seem to have some sort of familial/romantic connection! All just my humble opinion, but JK did mention that the only Death Eater with a Patronus would be Severus Snape and we all know why his was a doe, so I'll not bore you! Having said that, even if she learned it in school and had the peacock (although female ones are boring!) I'm sure her passionate nature would have shifted it into another shape.

    Ummm. . .hope I wasn't unpleasant, as that wasn't my intention, but just have strong feelings about Patronus (es/i) apparently BYE!

    Maybe these conflicting opinions on whether or not Fleur is shallow has to do with how she as matured throughout the series.

    While she was a student at Beauxbatons, I can easily see her as being one of the shallow pretty-girls who use her looks to her full advantage and possibly never saw herself as being anything other than a pretty face. I think she may have retained this attitude through much of the TriWizard Tournament, seeing how much she seemed to love toying with the Hogwarts boys.

    But after the death of Cedric Diggory, we begin seeing a transformation in her character. She starts to become interested in Bill, who, while charming, could hardly offer her a spot in the lap of luxury that some more wealthy pureblood wizards could have offered her. And in HBP, we still see her as being a touch shallow in her interactions with Mrs. Weasley. But after Bill is attacked by Greyback, Fleur shows an even further transformation. Here, the family becomes convinced that the wedding will be off, giving Fleur the perfect oppurtunity to pull out of the engagment for the chance of marrying a richer, more handsome wizard, and she doesn't do it. She tells Bill's mother that she is beautiful enough for the both of them and she has no plans of abandoning her fiance. She doesn't even mind his condtion contracted by the werewolf, which would have scared away anyone woman who didn't leave because of the scars.

    "The British overcook their meat anyway."

    And in DH, she invites complete strangers into her home to help the cause while fighting the war, indeed risking her own life and the life of her husband and true love.

    This does not sound like the doings of a shallow person.

    Fleur transformation cannot be carefully observed because she plays such a minor role in the series, but if one pays attention, it is possible to see how she comes to grow as a person.

    This is an interesting point. I do agree that she developed through the series, but she was not too shallow even when we were introduced to her. She was certainly mature/skilled enough to participate in the Triwizard Tournament, and she was worried about Harry's safety (even if only by pointing out that he is younger). She worried about her sister's life in the second task and appreciated Harry's help in "saving" her, recognizing the importance of family.

    She does mature some, expanding her family circle to include Bill and the Weasleys, then opening her house to Ollivander, Griphook, and Luna. But I don't think she was that shallow even to begin with; she may have used her villa blood to her advantage, possibly by acting shallow, but she was not.

    I'm working on a fic that takes place during Fleur's school years. I have Fleur's house down to one of two, but I can't decide between them:

    The first house claims intellegent students who are traditional, if somewhat reserved...

    And the second is home to those who are courageous and have a strong sense of justice...


    Keep in mind, Beauxbatons sorts just like Hogwarts, right when the students get there, so you'll have to put on your imagination caps and visualize and eleven-year-old Fleur!
