Fan Question of the Week: If you could write the last sentence that
appears in Book 7, what would it be? (Submitted by Helene, 41, from New Jersey)
Since the last word is supposed to be scar, I think it'd probaby be: "Harry sat there, holding Ginny's hand, feeling truly happy for the first time in his life, and grateful that he would never again have to worry about his scar."
How did you become a fan of Harry Potter?
It started almost six
years ago, close to the release of the first movie. Before that, I'd never
heard of the books, nor did I know a movie was being made about them. A friend
of mine happened to own SS and I borrowed it from her to know what the book was
like before I went to see the movie. I was blown away by the fantasy of the
story. It was so amazing, described as if it were a real world, but it was also
so sad at the same time, the story of this boy, orphan at the age of one and
doomed to live with a family that didn't want him. It captured me, and I went
to my friend's house and asked for the rest of the books, COS, POA, and GOF. I
wish I'd taken it slower, because after I was done reading them, I had to wait
two years to get my copy of OOTP.
What is your favorite Harry Potter book and movie?
Before reading HBP, my
favorite book was Prisoner of Azkaban, hence my favorite movie is POA. What I
like the most about Book 3, was that for the first time we see the dark side of
Harry, and we also come to know more about his past and his parents' past as he
is finding it himself. When we are told that Sirius is Harry's godfather and
also the person thought to have betrayed his parents, we really get to know
what this book is made of. Anything can happen from this point, and so it did.
For me the best part of the book/movie is when Harry deeply believes he's going
to see his father - he believes it so fervently that he's willing to risk
messing with time travel after being told how dangerous it is - only to realize
that it was not his father, but Harry from the future who saved the three of
them. It's one of the most amazing moments in the series.
If you could be any character in the series, who would you be?
I think I'd like to be
Harry because he's a hero. He's been through so much and still he is such a
good friend and a good person. I would like to have his courage, his bravery,
and his invisibility cloak.
What is one thing you would like to see happen in Book 7?
I have so many expectations
for Book 7. I wanna see Harry survive the final fight against Voldemort,
although I really doubt he will. I really wanna see him happy. He deserves to
be happy and LIVING at the end. I want all my questions answered and that means
a lot. But above all things, I need to see Ron and Hermione finally admitting
that they love each other and stop fighting and maybe get married. I mean,
they're both of legal age in Book 7, so why not?
If you could change anything about the series, what would it be?
I know that Rowling
needed Harry to be orphaned for the purposes of the series, but I think if had
to make one change, I would give Harry his parents. Every kid should have the
chance to grow up in a loving environment with people who really care for him.
I'd really like it if in the end he would get the chance to change the story
and be able to live with James and Lily.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I'm a huge fan of these
huge books that have had a huge influence in modern culture. I recommend them
to anyone, child or grownup. They're really really good books that teach the
journey of a boy into manhood, the choice between right and wrong, the
importance of friendship, family, loyalty, bravery, academics. The most
important thing about them is that they make you feel, that no matter you
situation, you're never alone in it, there's always someone who is going
through the same.
