Potter Profile - Mike
October 31, 2006
How did you become a fan of Harry Potter?
Well, it all started
when I was about nine or ten years old. Sorcerer's Stone the movie was rumored
to be coming out. Some of my friends had just found out about these books. I
think that Order of the Phoenix was coming out soon also. So they got me to
read them a little bit. They were just about one book ahead of me. Then, for
one of their birthdays, we went to go see Sorcerer's Stone. I loved it! Then, I
got on the internet, as I loved the computer. The first ever website I found
that I looked for was MuggleNet. Been a frequenter ever since.
What is your favorite Harry Potter book and movie?
My favorite book is
Order of the Phoenix. It just offers so much emotion and love. The story line
is amazing, there is action, love, loath, plot twists, everything! Remus and
Sirius just make the book so amazing. It is really inexplicable. The movie I
enjoyed the most has got to be Sorcerer's Stone. It was the first, it set the
mood, they did an excellent job. Plus it is part of the reason Harry was
introduced into my life.
If you could be any character in the series, who would you be?
If I had to choose, I
would have to say Sirius. He is just, well, so warm and caring. Sirius is a
child in a man's body. He is scared to love. I just love his character and
everything about him.
What is one thing you would like to see happen in Book 7?
Like most, there are two
things I think deserve getting taken care of. And that is Voldemort's defeat,
done by Harry, and Neville's revenge on Bellatrix. I would also like to see
something be resolved between Remus and Fenrir. Something has to be done, and I
am eager to see what it is.
If you could change anything about the series, what would it be?
I wouldn't change
anything. That is the truth. But, for the purpose of the question, I would say
that I would've liked Sirius to be given a proper burial or maybe even lived
longer just so he can be cleared and spend some time with Harry. His life was
far too short.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Harry Potter and
everything around it has opened up a new world for me. It is a feeling I hope
will never end, but if and when it does, I will look back on all the good times
I've had, and smile. Staying up late and reading until morning, secretly buying
the latest movie on television, even though I'm not supposed to, the forum
communities, everything. There will never be another Harry Potter, so enjoy the
times you have right now while you can.
