Potter Profile - Jamie
December 13, 2009
First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan?
I always liked the movies, but never read (or was a huge fan) of the series until
about 3 years ago when my friend suggested that I read them...The rest is history.
How are you feeling now that the series is over?
When I finished Deathly Hallows for the first time I felt terrible, I thought "I'm
never going to read a new Harry Potter book ever again...ever," which is kind of
depressing, until I thought of
a quote straight from Dumbledore: "I will only truly have left this school when none
here are loyal to me." So I realized that Harry Potter will only truly leave our
hearts when no one is
loyal to the series.......and that will never happen.
We got our very first glimpse of Deathly Hallows this month!
That trailer is like a gift from God. I've been waiting for a video, not just
pictures, from the movie for months. It was one of the greatest things that I have
ever watched in my life.
My only question: How can I wait another year for this movie?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
All seven books are out, there are two movies to go, and the theme
park> opens (hopefully) this spring. With so much to still look forward to, how> do
you think the fandom, and you, will change once the wait is over?
I think that even after the final movies come out and the theme park opens I wont
change too much, I just won't have anything Potter-related to look forward to. I'll
probably just keep
re watching the movies and rereading the books as usual. But I think that the
fandom as a whole will change. What will everyone talk about without new updates or
On second thought, how will I live when its all over?
could pitch an idea to The WB for keeping Harry Potter & The> Wizarding World alive
for many more years to come, what would it be?
I guess my idea would be to just advertise to the generations to come. That, and to
never ever (( ever )) tell us that something will come out on November 21 2008, then
at the last
minute in late August decide to tell us that it will actually come out on July 15
2009. Ring any bells? That was the worst day of my life.
Are there events in your fandom past that you would change or that you>
wish you hadn't missed out on?
There isn't anything that I would change, but I'm really upset that, because I've
only recently become a fan, I missed out on so many midnight releases and the
anticipation that comes with waiting for each book. Also, I'm upset that I missed
the Great Snape Debate that the bookstore had at the Deathly Hallows midnight
release. It was
could change who died in the series, which character would you keep alive and why?
(Submitted by Cassy S.)
That's a really hard question to answer. There's Dumbledore who was Harry's mentor
throughout the books and the greatest wizard ever, and Dobby who was so loyal to
always helped him, Hedwig who was a sign of Harry's becoming a wizard and what I
would consider his first friend, and Sirius Black who was in Harry's life for barely
2 years. Well,
I would choose Sirius, I guess, because Dumbledore chose to die (and also left
Harry the challenge of finding the Hallows himself) and Dobby died in a way that I
think he would have
wanted (while saving Harry). But Harry could have definitely used Sirius as a
boost of happiness throughout his life and I think that his death caused the most
pain for Harry.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Just a thank you to Mugglenet for everything you do for us and lets all hope for 2
more box office record breaking, absolutely amazing movies!!!!!! =]
