Fan Question of the Week: What couple would you most like to see get together in Book 7? (Submitted by Courtney, 14, from Canada)
I've always been a crazy Harry/Hermione shipper. I know they're not going to get together, but a guy can dream right?
How did you become a fan of Harry Potter?
It started about the time Goblet came out. My daughter had just turned eight and we were trying to get her into the habit of reading. A gentleman at a bookstore suggested Harry Potter. I picked it up so she and I could read it together. I can remember trying to voice each character differently and all that. Before long, I was more obsessed than she was. She'll even tell you that. I just love that it gives us something to discuss together and help us bond over something.
What is your favorite Harry Potter book and movie?
My favorite book is Goblet just because that was the first in the series that I ever read. I went out of order when reading the books the first time, but I still hold that one on a pedestal. It was the first I'd read so it is more special to me. After seeing the trailer for Order online this week, I think it will shape up to be my favorite movie.
If you could be any character in the series, who would you be?
I would be Sirius. He is a loving parental figure, has a wild side, and is just a great all around character. I don't mean to sound snobbish, but I think I am a lot like him already. Of course, I am still alive. Let's hope Sirius is too!
What is one thing you would like to see happen in Book 7?
I want to see more of Luna. I was disappointed that in Half-Blood there wasn't much of her. Hopefully she'll play a bigger role in Book 7. My daughter loves her.
If you could change anything about the series, what would it be?
I would not want Snape to kill Dumbledore. It was an unexpected twist, but I think it was pointless. I know Dumbledore needed to die, but why have Snape be the one to kill him?
Is there anything else you would like to add?
These books have brought me much happiness. They make me feel like I am in a child's world again. They helped me bond with my daughter Colleen (hi, sweetie) and helped us spend more time together. Harry Potter is a wonderful series that has done so much for the entire world of reading.
