AMATO ANIMO ANIMATO ANIMAGUS

"An Animagus is a wizard who elects to turn into an animal."

"You know that I can disguise myself most effectively."
—Peter Pettigrew speaking about his advantage of being unregistered


It takes skill, practice, and patience for wizards and witches to become Animagi. The process of becoming an Animagus is long and arduous, and has the potential to backfire and cause the transformation to go horribly wrong. Many witches and wizards simply feel that their time might better be employed in other ways, as the skill is of limited practical use unless one has a great need for disguise or concealment. Part of the process by which one becomes an Animagus is holding the leaf of a Mandrake in their mouth for an entire month, using the leaf for the creation of a potion, and reciting an incantation Amato Animo Animato Animagus on a daily basis. Once the initial training is over, an Animagus can change at will, with or without a wand. Animagi who take on the form of species capable of flight can enjoy the sensation without the need of broomsticks, flying carpet, or riding on flying animals. Most Animagi are registered with the Ministry of Magic, with a few key exceptions, the Marauders among them.
TASK
Your task is to choose an animal you would like to be if you were to decide to become an Animagus. A description is key, including personality traits that would transfer from yourself to that of your animal. Also, you must pick one of three following scenarios to describe an adventure to us while in your animal form:

1. Newt Scamander has recently come to you, shaking with excitement. It seems he has found a rather rare creature hidden within the Forbidden Forest. While you know you shouldn't go, you are intrigued by his request. As he is aware of you being an Animagus, he has requested to have you use your animal form to help him grab the attention of this exotic creature.

2. James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew are gone from Hogwarts at the same time each month it seems. Nobody knows where they go, and this has piqued your interest. You decide to use your animal form to follow the four and see exactly where they go once a month.

3. Fred and George Weasley are going around the school to dare students to conceal themselves and make your way to the Shrieking Shack. As an Animagus, you know you would have a much easier time with this task. As you hear the amount students are betting for the one person who can achieve this, you decide to take on the dare, not only to become a legend of Hogwarts, but to earn a little bit of cash on the side.

RULES
- Your answer must include a description of your animal form and a scenario based on one of the above mentioned options. Word count should be between 500 and 1,500 words.

Beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it is the middle that counts the most. #SassyPhoenix

@LUNAtic12

It doesn't have to be in first person. It can be in third person.

I love this contest idea, but I can see figuring out my animagus is going to be difficult and going to stop me from getting started.

A little! I know what scenario I want to pick, but I'm a little too indecisive in regards to myself and an animagus.
