How did you become a Harry Potter fan?

Well, when I was 11 I saw the first Harry Potter movie and from that moment I was suddenly bewitched. So, a few days later I bought my first Harry Potter book – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (of course…). Whenever I was/am stressed or sad or happy I watched and read Harry Potter a thousand times. It’s like a self-therapy. Now I’m 24 and from one day to another, my love gets bigger and bigger. To my 24th birthday, I bestow myself with a Harry Potter Tattoo.

What would your Patronus be and why?

My patronus would be a penguin because I love them, and they’re loyal animals who always know who belongs to them.

What do you think you might see if given the chance to look into the Mirror of Erised?

I think I would see me (my wand in my left hand and holding a book with my right) with my mom and dad (and my sister of course) with me in the middle, all of us wearing robes. One of my biggest wishes is to have a normal family. When I was a little child my mom and dad broke up and now it sometimes hurts more than anything else.

Describe what being part of the Harry Potter fandom has meant to you in 7 words or less.

Family, loyalty, hope, love.
