Potter Profile - Varun
May 30, 2010
First off, how did you become a Harry Potter fan?
I initially came to know about Harry Potter when the 1st movie had come out and my friends asked me to come and watch it with them. I loved the movie. Since then, I had a craze to read the books .And I have read all the books tens of times now!!
It has been over two years since Deathly Hallows came out and we found out
how the series ended. Do you have the same reaction to the ending now, as
you did then?
Deathly Hallows is a great book and its my favorite in the series.The ending to the series is wonderful and i even now i enjoy it the same way as i did when i first read it. The chapters "The forest again" and "Kings Cross" are superbly written and wind up the series in a fantastic manner. It brings backs the memories of the times when i read all the books.. I remembered every little moment I had with these books.
The death of Fred was a very disheartening moment.Even Tonks and Lupin.It was a very sad moment and writing all this makes me go back and read those last chapters again!
There are quite a few organizations/clubs at Hogwarts. Which you would rather join and why: Dueling Club, Dumbledore's Army, or S.P.E.W.?
I would join Dumbledore's Army. I would love to learn complex spells and learn to defend myself against any dark forces.Moreover, being associated with DA is an honor. I can support SPEW though by making donations [:P]. Also, if I was a wizard, I would want to be an Auror or a teacher at Hogwarts. So, I need the training! :P :P
If you could attend Hogwarts, Which class do you think would be your favorite?
I think Potions would have been my favorite (Not with Snape teaching it, though :P). Chemistry was my favorite subject in school too.
Which class would be your best, whether you liked it or not?
Defense against the dark arts!!.. probably with the DA training i would perform the best in there...and i like the class too!!
Okay, be honest. We got you this year with our April Fool's story about JKR writing a Potter prequel featuring Elvendork. However, if she really wrote it, it would be so...
Oh, I didnt believed it for a second. After reading the above story of the DH Trilogy i was prepared. I know JKR is writing something and its got to be way way much better. Also watever JKR writes is damn good. So if she would have written it anyways, it would have been too cool.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
THANK YOU SO MUCH for choosing me as the fan of the week. Its so amazing to share my thoughts with all of you. Thank you J K ROWLING for giving meaning and color to my life. Please write more about about the wizarding world and about Hogwarts!! I would thank my parents and my friends for tolerating my Potter obsession over the years. Being a member of fan community of Harry Potter has also got me great pen pals from over different countries.I start reading any potter book whenever i am depressed and it has always been there to help me.Thank for giving us such lovable characters JKR. Love u so much!!
