Which Weasley child would you want to sit with at the Quidditch World Cup or invite to the Yule Ball? We rank Molly and Arthur’s wizarding offspring in order of coolness…

你最想和哪个子世代韦斯莱一起看魁地奇世界杯,或者邀请ta去圣诞舞会?让我们把莫莉和亚瑟的巫师后代们按照“酷”的程度排行......

7. Percy Weasley 珀西·韦斯莱

 

Coolest moment: ‘Hello, Minister!’ …. ‘Did I mention I’m resigning?’

最酷的时刻:“你好啊,部长!...我有没有说过我要辞职了?”(hp7)

 

Verdict: We’re absolutely not saying you can’t be cool and be a Prefect, but Percy wasn’t exactly the most gracious of authority figures.

判断意见:我们完全不是说你不能做酷孩子并去当级长,但是珀西并非最有风度的掌权者。

He regularly threatened Ron with detention, and liked to remind everyone exactly what his title was – whether that be Prefect or Head Boy. 

他经常威胁罗恩要关他的禁闭,并且喜欢提醒每个人他的头衔是什么——不论是级长还是男学生会主席。

And after he left Hogwarts and joined the Ministry, it was very not cool to be in league with Fudge and Umbridge and turn his back on his family. 

而且,当他从霍格沃茨毕业进入魔法部工作后,与福吉和乌姆里奇为伍、背弃家人是一件很不酷的事。

He definitely redeemed himself in the end, and the moment he announced his resignation in a duel was fantastic, but unfortunately that wasn't enough to tip the balance of Percy ending up at the bottom of the pile in the coolest Weasley child rankings. 

他最终确实挽回了自己,在霍格沃茨之战中他宣布辞职的那一刻简直不要太酷炫,但不幸的是,这还不足以打破珀西在最酷的韦斯莱子世代排行榜上垫底的局面。

6. Ron Weasley 罗恩·韦斯莱

 

Coolest moment: ‘Weasley can save anything, He never leaves a single ring, That’s why Gryffindors all sing: Weasley is our King.’

最酷的时刻:韦斯莱真真是好样,一个球都不往门里放,格兰芬多人放声唱:韦斯莱是我们的王。(hp5)

 

Verdict: Ron had a tough time staying cool under pressure, and we don’t blame him: three-headed dogs, giant spiders, Azkaban escapees – he really did have a lot to deal with during his time at Hogwarts. 

判断意见:罗恩在压力下很难保持平静,我们也不怪他——三头犬、巨蜘蛛、阿兹卡班的逃犯——他的校园时光里总有一堆事处理。

The great thing about Ron was that he had true courage – he was often afraid but conquered his fear and fought for good anyway. Unfortunately, that meant he wasn’t always exactly cool – remember those slugs? 

罗恩的最伟大之处在于他有真正的勇气——他总是感到害怕,但他战胜了恐惧并为正义而战。不幸的是,这同时意味着他并不总是那么酷——记得那些鼻涕虫吗?

And it was supremely uncool of him to abandon Harry and Hermione on their Horcrux hunt. That being said, he did have some pretty cool moments – saving Harry from freezing water and destroying a Horcrux, that epic chess game in Philosophers Stone – but we picked the moment that the song – started as a taunt by the Slytherins – was taken over by Gryffindors to reflect Ron’s Quidditch Keeping success. 

最不酷的就属在寻找魂器的途中抛弃哈利和赫敏的那次了。话虽如此,他也确实有些很酷的时刻——在冰水中救出哈利并摧毁魂器,《魔法石》里史诗般的巫师棋游戏——但是在上文中“最酷的时刻”我们选择了《韦斯莱是我们的王》歌谣——本来是斯莱特林嘲讽之作,最后却让格兰芬多唱来庆贺罗恩在魁地奇比赛中大获全胜。

5. Charlie Weasley查理·韦斯莱

 

Coolest moment: ‘How are you? Thanks for the letter – I’d be glad to take the Norwegian Ridgeback, but it won’t be easy getting him here. I think the best thing will be to send him over with some friends of mine who are coming to visit me next week.’

最酷的时刻:“(罗恩)你好吗?谢谢你给我写信——我很高兴收养那只挪威脊背龙,但是要把它弄到这儿来不太容易。我认为最好的办法是让几个下周要来看我的朋友顺路把它带过来。(hp1)

 

Verdict: This quote is taken from a letter Charlie wrote to Ron, who had asked him for help with Hagrid’s pet dragon.

判断意见:这段话摘自查理写给罗恩的一封信,当时罗恩请求他帮助收养海格的宠物龙。

 Pretty cool of an elder brother not to question this odd request, and ever cooler just to be able to just casually mention that you have friends who can help out with a Norwegian Ridgeback! 

二哥查理非常酷地毫不迟疑就接受了这个请求。并且最酷的是,对于罗恩来说,随随便便就能提到有个朋友可以收养挪威脊背龙!

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see too much of Charlie, although we heard all about him working with dragons in Romania (also a very cool job!). He isn’t much higher on the rankings as we just can’t judge how cool he really was from the information we have – however according to Fred he did have to take his Apparition test twice because he ‘Apparated five miles south of where he meant to, right on top of some poor old dear doing her shopping, remember?’ Not cool, Charlie. Not cool. 

不幸的是,虽然我们知道他在罗马利亚与龙共事(也是一个非常酷的工作!),但是我们对查理还是知之甚少。因为我们用手头上仅有的的信息并不能判断他到底有多酷,所以他的排名并不靠前——然而据弗雷德所说,查理确实考了两次幻影移形测试才通过,因为他“本来想去南边五里的地方,但却正好落在了一个正在买东西的老人头上”(hp4)。真的,查理,这可不酷。

4. George Weasley乔治·韦斯莱

 

Coolest moment: ‘Saint-like,’ repeated George, opening his eyes and looking up at his brother. ‘You see ... I’m holy. Holey, Fred, geddit?’
最酷的时刻: “像个圣人,”乔治重复道,睁开眼睛往上看着他的兄弟。“你看……我变神圣了,有洞的,弗雷德,明白了?”(注:乔治此处指HOLY 和HOLEY的同音双关,在国内因语言问题翻译为“洞听”一梗。)(hp7)

 

Verdict: Even after losing his ear, this Weasley twin was cracking jokes and trying to make everyone laugh – can you get any cooler than that? 

判断意见:甚至在乔治丢失耳朵之后,韦斯莱双子还在说笑话想让大家开怀大笑——还有比这更酷的吗?

That being said, the rankings are getting pretty close together on the cool factor front as we reach the twins – though they did many of their coolest deeds together, so we’ve penalised them slightly for that (remember giving Harry the Marauder’s Map? Umbridge and the fireworks? Leaving that swamp in a corridor at Hogwarts with no instructions for how to get rid of it?). Legends. 

也就是说,双胞胎两人在这份排行榜上的排名非常接近——尽管他们一起做了很多最酷的事,但我们还是要给他们一点轻微的惩罚(记得他们给哈利活点地图吗?乌姆里奇和烟火?在霍格沃茨的走廊里变出沼泽,却没有介绍消除它的办法?)。真是传奇。

3. Fred Weasley弗雷德·韦斯莱

 

Coolest moment: ‘George,’ said Fred, ‘I think we’ve outgrown full-time education.’

最酷的时刻:“乔治,”弗雷德说,“我觉得我们已经长大了,不用再接受全日制教育了。”

 

Verdict: Fred just edges ahead of his twin brother in these rankings, as he is often the ring-leader of the two. He’s usually the one with the witty one-liners, and therefore comes across as ‘cooler’ in his confidence – the quote above is said directly to Umbridge before they leave Hogwarts behind on their broomsticks.

判断意见:弗雷德在这份排行榜上领先于他的孪生兄弟,因为他经常是两人中的领头羊。他很幽默,经常讲小笑话,所以他给人的印象“更酷”。上文“最酷的时刻”摘自他们把霍格沃茨甩在扫帚后面时直接对乌姆里奇说的话。

 He’s also often the instigator – for example, he was the one driving the flying car in Chamber of Secrets, and it was his idea to use an Ageing Potion to try to enter their names in the Goblet of Fire. 

他也经常是一个煽动者——例如,《密室》里他是飞车的司机,《火焰杯》里服用魔药使兄弟俩年龄增长也是他的主意。 

You might not think that makes him cooler – but we had to decide whether Gred or Forge came higher in the rankings somehow!

你也许不觉得这些事让他更酷——但是我们不得不决定在这份榜单上谁的排名更靠前,乔雷德还是弗治?(注:Gred or Forge是hp1圣诞节送毛衣一节,由于韦斯莱夫人总是叫错两人名字,被双子玩的梗)

2. Ginny Weasley金妮·韦斯莱

 

Coolest moment: ‘The thing about growing up with Fred and George,’ said Ginny thoughtfully, ‘is that you sort of start thinking anything’s possible if you’ve got enough nerve.’

最酷的时刻:“跟弗雷德和乔治一起长大教会了我一件事”金妮若有所思地说道,“我开始相信,如果你胆量够大,任何事情都是可能办到的。”(hp6)


Verdict: Ginny almost makes it to the top of the Weasley rankings for coolness. She trained herself at Quidditch when her brothers never let her play, she had the meanest Bat Bogey Hex around (and wasn’t afraid to use it), and continued to cause havoc at Hogwarts to rebel against the Death Eaters in Deathly Hallows. 

判断意见:金妮因为她的冷静几乎登上了这个排行榜的首位。在哥哥们的阻止下仍然自己训练魁地奇;她有着最“卑劣”的蝙蝠精咒(并且完全不怕使用它);在《死亡圣器》里,她在霍格沃茨制造混乱继续反抗食死徒。

She befriended Luna Lovegood, and stuck up for her, even though she wasn’t exactly the coolest Hogwarts student around, and when asked if Harry had a tattoo, completely styled it out and told everyone it was a Hungarian Horntail. Need we go on? 

她和卢娜·洛夫古德交朋友,并且为她挺身而出,尽管她不是霍格沃茨最酷的学生。当被问道哈利有没有纹身的时候,她把纹身图案描绘得一清二楚,并且告诉大家那是一条匈牙利树蜂龙的图案。无需我多言了吧?

1. Bill Weasley 比尔·韦斯莱

 

Coolest moment: ‘However, Bill was – there was no other word for it – cool.’

最酷的时刻:然而,(哈利这才知道)比尔一副——没有别的词可以形容——很“酷”的样子。(hp4)

 

Verdict: He was always going to win this one, wasn’t he? He was a curse-breaker for Gringotts – how cool does that sound? And that was after being Head Boy and getting about a million OWLs, as well as sporting that ponytail and fang earring. 

判断意见:他总归是要赢这个榜首的,不是吗?他是古灵阁的解咒员——听起来多酷!并且这可是在当了男学生会主席、在OWLs考试中得到了约一百万个优秀(注:夸张说法,实际上比尔拿了12个,赫敏拿了11个)、还梳着马尾辫、戴悬小扇子的耳环之后。

This kind of pirate-style coolness was evident in something he said to Mrs Weasley when she was fussing over his appearance: ‘Mum, no one at the bank gives a damn how I dress as long as I bring home plenty of treasure,’ – so casual. Not to mention he married someone equally as cool and attractive as himself – Fleur Delacour – who was a Triwizard Champion and half-Veela.

这种海盗风格的冷静在韦斯莱夫人对他的外表大惊小怪时体现得淋漓尽致:“妈,银行里的人根本不关心我穿什么衣服,只要我找回许多财宝就行了。”(注:hp4第五章)——太随意了。更不用说他娶了一个像他自己一样又酷又惹人注目的妻子——芙蓉·德拉库尔——三强争霸赛的勇士之一,还是一个媚娃混血。

 If that wasn’t enough, he took being attacked by Fenrir Greyback completely in his stride: … ‘in personality he seemed just the same as ever. All that appeared to have changed was that he now had a great liking for very rare steaks.’ Bill, we bow to your superior coolness.

如果这还不够的话,他在被狼人芬里尔·格雷伯克攻击后非常从容地接受现实:...“在性格上他还和平时一样,改变的开始爱吃带血的牛肉了。“比尔,我们为你超人的冷静所倾倒。
