Potter Profile - Ana

First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan?
Wow, that goes way back... It was my 11th birthday and since I'm kinda known as the family's bookwormn almost 90% were books. My godfather gave me Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. I started reading it but I got a little bit bored and I gave up before finishing the first chapter. However, some weeks later I got sick and couldn't go to school. I had to stay in bed and, as you can imagine, that was plain boring, so I decided to give Harry Potter a second chance. By the end of the day I had read it all and became a die-hard fan! It has been 10 years and I still love the books just like I did the first time I read them!
It has been over two years since Deathly Hallows came out and we found out
how the series ended. Do you have the same reaction to the ending now, as
you did then?
Oh, not even close! When I read Deathly Hallows for the first time I got very emotional because the books were a crucial part of my teenage years. I was 19 (?) when Deathly Hallows came out and somehow, I felt like it was the end of a cicle both for the series and for me. I cried when I closed the book and thought that, even if that was a relatively satisfying end, I could never get enough of the Harry Potter world. I still think the same way nowadays and, I just don't cry anymore!
There are quite a few organizations/clubs at Hogwarts. Which you would rather join and why: Dueling Club, Dumbledore's Army, or S.P.E.W.?
Dumbledore's Army of course, because I'm always eager to learn and improve my skills! Maybe the Dueling Club wouldn't be so bad either, but DA's provided us some of the best moments of all the series! That group was bold, daring, intelligent, hardworking... most of all, we got to see this superior level of companionship between the teams that Hogwarts seldom experienced, and I'm all for that!!!
If you could attend Hogwarts, Which class do you think would be your favorite?
Tough question, indeed! Maybe Charms... or Potions! Even if it was taught by Snape! I just have a feeling I would really have fun on these classes! And come on, Potions can't be too different from cooking, if you don't pay attention it all goes wrong too :)
Which class would be your best, whether you liked it or not?
That'd probaby be History of Magic! I'm good at memorising stuff and it seems that's what that class is all about. Either that or Ancient Runes!
Okay, be honest. We got you this year with our April Fool's story about JKR writing a Potter prequel featuring Elvendork. However, if she really wrote it, it would be so...
Weird! Specially because it wouldn't make any sense! If she wanted to write prequels, she already had the best and most-wanted characters to write about: the Marauders!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
First of all I'd like to thank all the Mugglenet staff for all the hardworking they've been doing throughout the years! What a special place you have created to unite all the Potter fans!!! I wanna also thank JK Rowling for the wonderful world and characters she created, my favorites being Ron, James and Lily. I really hope she writes about the Marauders some time in the future! And finally, a shout out to all the Portuguese HP fans out there :)
