Potter Profile - Christopher
July 19, 2009
First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan?
This amazing time was when I was in 4th grade. My amazing teacher decided to give us
story time, I guess you can call it. The class sat on the rug and every day she
would read another chapter in Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone. The reason that
I think we started this was because HP was recently in a Times Magazine for the 3rd
book release. Anyway, each day we just sat there and listened. Eventually, toward
the middle of the book, I went out and bought my own copy so that I could read along
(I was jealous of another kid who had her own copy). When we finished I obviously
was addicted. I went out and got the 2nd book and read it in a few days then the
3rd.. and so on.
How are you feeling now that the series is over?
Its kind of depressing, but at the same time Im not really looking at it as over.
There is still a lot to do. The one great thing about Harry Potter is that it
attracts so much more than JK did herself. Recently, I just bought and read the
Mugglenet book Harry Potter should have died (which was really cool). I also
started reading the Leaky Cauldron book Harry, A History which is pretty cool too.
Then, theres always the movies and the Encyclopedia that is coming out. So, ill
have my hands full with that. Also, as i get more money, I want to start collecting
the different HP stuff, particularly the book collections and special editions. And
of course ill be making sure that I read the entire series to each of my
children(once I have some, in about 10 years) while they are young. And, dont
forget the Harry Potter theme park...gonna be amazing.
Let's talk magical objects. What would you see standing in front of The
Mirror of Erised?
Im assuming that we can have magical answers since the mirror is magic? Well, I
would probably see myself standing next to the girl of my dreams with a wand in my
hand. I don;t know who the girl is yet, but i know that that is one thing that is
really important to me (finding the right person). also, It has always been a dream
of mine (helped along by JK) to have special abilities like magic. That would be so
awesome. Id be able to enchant brooms to fly (my dream power...flying) and do
basically everything. If I was a wizard I would definitely be like Hermione..or
Snape. I would make sure that I knew every spell that there was, and hopefully make
some of my own.
Pretend that all of the Time Turners were in fact not destroyed. What
would you use one for?
I dont think i actually would..only because they cause to many problems with
changing current events (ive watched too many movies). But also, Im pretty happy
with how my life is right now, so i wouldnt want to change anything.
Congratulations! You just inherited a pair of Vanishing Cabinets! Where
would you place them?
This is really hard. ummm, probably in a secret area in San Diego somewhere. It
would be kool to be able to just go to the other side of the country to a beautiful
city whenever I wanted to think or something. Plus. Im currently in San Diego on
the Navy Base and it is amazing.
If there was a way to make a Horcrux without committing murder, would you
Of course I would. Why wouldnt you? The one bad thing about being a ghost is that
you live for all of eternity. Once you make the decision, you cant take it back. A
horcrux is similar to a sorcerers stone in a way. You can choose how long you will
live. If you die, you can come back. If you ever really want to die, you can just
destroy your horcrux.
Finally, which Hallow are you most drawn to and why?
I know that the books make this one look evil but I would definitely want the elder
wand. it just seems very practical. And if you think about it it can probably
replace the cloak anyway. The books say that most cloaks wear off because the
spells weaken. However, the elder wand makes unusually powerful spells. We saw this
when it fixed Harry's Phoenix wand when no other wand would fix it. This means that
its effects would probably last longer on a cloak anyway (maybe even permanent).
Also, Im still young yet, so gratefully I dont know many people who have died. A
wand is a wizards most important tool. Why not have the best one?
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I just saw the Harry Potter 6 movie.. It was awesome!!!
