Potter Profile - Casey
August 30, 2009
First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan?
I remember seeing my older sister reading SS (PS for the Brits) and i thought it
looked pretty stupid to be honest. However, my parents bought a copy of the book
from Amazon, and on the day it arrived, i happened to be really bored. My mom
gave me the choice of reading the book or cleaning my room. I read the book,
became addicted, and the rest is history.
How are you feeling now that the series is over?
I was sort of depressed, but I was very lucky in that I was discovering other books
and tv shows to occupy my time in Harry Potter's stead, such as the Inheritence
Cycle and The X-Files, to name a few. Yet, Harry Potter was my first love and will
always hold the biggest piece of my heart. Can't wait for Jo to release her
encyclopedia and other books though.
Let's talk magical objects. What would you see standing in front of The
Mirror of Erised?
I imagine I would see myself as a succesful author with a smoking hot husband. Yes,
I think that's all I really want in life. Although I really hope my hubbie likes
Harry Potter as well, or his looks count for nothing.
Pretend that all of the Time Turners were in fact not destroyed. What
would you use one for?
Probably the exact same thing Hermione used hers for. I am
much in the same vein as Hermione, except I tend to read more fiction and am quite
a bit more laid back. But yeah, I would love to be able to take a whole bunch of
classes but there really is only so much time to work with.
Congratulations! You just inherited a pair of Vanishing Cabinets! Where
would you place them?
One in my room, obviously. The other would probably be in
the largest library I can find, so I can sneak in to read whenever I wanted, and
read whatever I wanted. Yes, I really love reading that much.
If there was a way to make a Horcrux without committing murder, would you
I'm going to say no, because living forever has never appealed to me.
Although, maybe it'd be cool to live for a couple hundred years just to see how
the centuries change.
Finally, which Hallow are you most drawn to and why?
I'm not much of a trouble maker, so the Cloak is out, and I don't have very many
enemies, so I don't really care for the Wand. I would pick the Resurrection Stone
so that I could have a chance to meet famous people from the past like Oscar Wilde
or Amelia Earheart (also, I'd ask her what the heck happened on her final flight
when she dissappeared). Just cool stuff like that.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
A big thank you to Mugglenet for picking me
after trying for the last three years, a congrats to Emerson on his engagement
(old news by now but never got a chance before I went to Basic Training this
summer), and a shout out to all my fellow Potterheads who have been hanging on for
all these years. Also, if Ben Schoen is ever single and looking...;)
