    Should I oust this patronus thread and start a new one, I shouldn't have assumed lotsa people would know about the protector thing right away, I'd put the decent quotes and info from people in the new opening thread...Or should we just keep this one?

    Ohhh, then I retract my choice and change it to Tiger. I'll keep the wild forest cat for the Animagus-thread

    *ponders*

    Here's a theory:

    If you are in fact a soft-natured person, let's say an INFP, and your animagus embodies that by say being a Bunny (going for the cliche here ), would that person feel most safe by having an aggressive patronus? Like for instance a Bear?

    And, vice versa. Is the person who identifies with a Tiger more likely to feel safe in the sweet, gentle nature of say a Deer?

    I know for my own choices, I'm likely to be cuddly kitten with the occasional accidental sharp claw lash out. But most people aren't exactly impressed by me getting huffy puffy. Unless I actually get so hurt that I focus and unleash, which is really rare. The times I've felt most safe though, was when I was in the presence of (usually a guy) someone who had a really strong independent, no-nonsense, almost predatorial feel. Something about...not being in front of them but behind them that makes you feel like whatever comes your way isn't going to be as bad as the thing on your side

    And, when I do pass that point where I either lash back or get hurt beyond the point of return, I do use them as a model..I hate myself for doing it afterwards, feel immensely guilty, but I go back to what they taught me.

    And it would seem that when someone who actually *is* independent and able to defend themselves in hard circumstances is likely to have vulnerabilities of a different nature, for example, by being more in need of peace, soothing, unwinding? It would then stand to reason that when they feel under attack, and they're in over their head, they would be attracted to something that would tend to those needS?

    I think I recall Hermione's patronus as an otter...
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Hmmm, Luna's (INFP) Patronus is a hare, which is not dissimilar to a bunny.... I'm not sure because Patronus forms are largely subconscious, but for each of the types, and more specifically each individual, I reckon it would be an animal which they could conceivably control, but that covers some of the weaknesses and insecurities of said person...A hare for example is always very alert, and energetic, Luna isn't, yet she might not feel like the mistress of a bigger animal with a similar temprament as she is fairly calm and spacey.

    Makes sense, if we look at the now corrected definition of a patronus (I always did find that weird, but I only watched the movies and it isn't really that clear in those what a patronus is).

    Hermione has got one HUGE pole stuck up her ass. She's always serious, always working, always getting things done. It would stand to reason that she would need/feel safe in a place where she doesn't have to do any of those things and gets to be playful for a change

    But Luna rarely feels intimidated or threatened by anything either, so I doubt she needs a big scary animal to protect her
    I think Luna enjoys the idea of being able to run. The world finds Luna weird, and she's forced to deal with that *every* single day. The Hare lets her run free, lets her escape that world with rules and regulations for expected behavior. It gives her freedom.

    I don't know.
