Potter Profile - Sara
December 20, 2009
First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan?
I had to have been about seven or so when I started reading HP (just a
guess; I'm mathematically retarded)...but I do remember my Mom buying my SS
from our school's book fair because she though I would like it or something.
At first, I didn't want to -- I knew a couple of other girls in my class who
read it and for some reason that put me off. After I finally picked it up
and read it (okay, it was like a week at the most!) I couldn't put it down.
I actually skipped the chapter where Harry, Ron, and Hermione encounter the
giant chess board and etc because I was so excited and couldn't wait to read
who had the stone; I was hooked!
How are you feeling now that the series is over?
Originally, I felt pretty lost. Like I said, I've been reading Harry Potter
since around the second grade. It has been such a huge part of my life for
so long -- what the heck was I supposed to do once it was over? But that's
what things like HP theme parks, movies, and fanfiction are for! Now I feel
very excited as to where we'll go from here.
We got our very first glimpse of Deathly Hallows this month!
Not gonna lie, Deathly Hallows falls pretty low on my list of favorite books
in the series, but I'm still ridiculously excited for the movie (and not
just because Daniel Radcliffe is lookin' more fine than ever. I am debating
as to whether or not it would be creepy to type a winking emoticon.)
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?
Sure, it'll change, just like it changed when DH was released in 2007. Harry
Potter fans are relentless and all over the world -- we'll come up with more
stuff to wait for. Just wait -- next thing you know, History Channel will be
featuring "How J.K. Rowling Changed the World!" (as opposed to "How William
Shatner Changed the World")
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?
Is it lame I can't think of anything? I think it'll do a pretty good job of
keeping itself alive as long as fans indoctrinate others into this wonderful
Are there events in your fandom past that you would change or that you>
wish you hadn't missed out on?
I seriously wanted to be at one of the gatherings like Lumos, but I was
never allowed (or at least couldn't afford it)! Gotta do one of those some
day, definitely. (Oh, and when Mugglecast came to a library in my hometown
when they were on their tour, I wish I wouldn't have sounded like an idiot.)
could change who died in the series, which character would you keep alive and why?
(Submitted by Cassy S.)
Without thinking about it, I'd have to say Remus, partly because I think
he's awesome and also because after losing so much, he never got to see his
son grow up. But after thinking about it more deeply, I'd prefer to, instead
of keeping a character alive, keeping Harry dead at the end. Seriously -- I
wanted it to happen.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Randomly...I'm playing the Sims 3 on my laptop while I fill this out on my
desktop. I became totally excited and amused because one of my characters
just said the world "nargle!" They seem to only use it when they flirt XD.
This combination of things is way better than the report I'm supposed to be
typing for my Psychology class.
