Fan Question of the Week: If you could date any character on HP, who would it be and
why? (Submitted by Micki, 23, from the United States)
Bill Weasley. First, he is older, so I instantly had a crush
on him. All Weasleys are crush-worthy, BUT too young for
me. Second, he's mysterious and free-spirited, or at least
the earring and long hair make me think so. I am also a fan
of the red hair because red hair comes with freckles
usually, so I assume he'd have freckles. AND Molly Weasley
would be the best mother-in-law any girl could ever wish
How did you become a fan of Harry Potter?
My best friend (who helped me submit myself for Fan of the
Week) went to the library our junior year in college, with
the intention of checking out The Lord of the Rings books
for some leisure reading. It was obviously meant to be that
they were not in. Harry Potter caught her eye so she decided
to give it a try. She fell in love. She made me watch the
first three movies. I absolutely LOVED them. (This also
started our obsession with owls.) She talked me into reading
the first book. I HATED reading and was certain I wouldn't
like it, even though I loved the movies. I had never
completed a whole book in all of my schooling, high school
and college included. I decided I'd give it a try. I
couldn't put them down. I read the first book faster than
I had ever read anything. Then came the second and third. I
read Book 4 and 5 together in less than two weeks just
in time to attend my first book release. Then came my first
movie release, and I of course dressed up. Somewhere along I
happened upon MuggleNet, which slowly fed my love. Some time
after, that the love turned into obsession and not a day
goes by that I don't think or talk or reference Harry
Potter. And I have grasped and embraced my obsession.
What is your favorite Harry Potter book and movie?
I guess I would have to say Goblet of Fire is my favorite
book and movie. It was my first favorite book, because it
was the first one I read and had not seen the movie before.
So it was so much more intense and real for my imagination
and for me. It confirmed for me that I was a Harry Potter
fan and loved these books more than I was ever going to love
any others. But I love all of the books, especially GoF and
up. And GoF was my favorite movie simply for the intense
emotion in the scene where Harry cries after Cedric dies. I
can't watch it without feeling the emotion and crying a
If you could be any character in the series, who would you be?
Mrs. Weasley. She is my hero. What I want most in the world
is to be a mom (and a wife). And she is such a wonderful
mother. If financially able, I have always wanted to have
seven kids. She has seven kids. She is also very emotional
and so am I. I relate to her the most. She's quirky and
loving and gentle and everyone loves her.
What is one thing you would like to see happen in Book 7?
Well what I DON'T want to happen is for Harry to die. I
would cry for days. I would for sure like to see Harry and
Ginny and Ron and Hermione together and with hopes of a
"happily ever after" future. My friends and I would like
to see Ron as Head Boy. I would like to see Hagrid as Head
of Gryffindor House. And other than that I try not to wish
many other things because I don't want to be disappointed,
as if I ever could be.
If you could change anything about the series, what would it be?
More books. More pages. And I wouldn't want Sirius to die.
I wouldn't have done it differently, and I know people
have to die, but I wanted to see more of him. But really, I
would change absolutely nothing. Now the movies are another
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I love MuggleNet!! I am really obsessed with it (a healthy
obsession of course). Winning Fan of the Week will be my
claim to fame for the rest of my life. I screamed and
squealed and jumped up and down and couldn't talk clearly
or breathe normally or tell anyone why I was acting like a
crazy person for the first few minutes. I called everyone I
knew, even people that didn't care at all. MuggleCast is
the best podcast ever. I listen to it all the time,
literally. And Micah is my favorite just because he is
closest to my age, but I really don't have a favorite. I
love everyone that has anything to do with MuggleNet and am
so jealous that you have jobs that require you to think
about Harry Potter. What a life?! (And I do have a life
outside of my obsession for Harry Potter and MuggleNet and
MuggleCast. I successfully graduated college despite being
distracted by Harry and my favorite website. And I do have a
job now, although not as cool as working at MuggleNet. Just
in case anyone was concerned for my well-being.)
