Fan Focus: Amelia – November 2, 2014
Age 14 – London, Ontario
How did you become a Harry Potter fan?
I was about six years old when I decided I wanted to read a “big kid” book and found the first three books waiting on my shelf. I remember being so determined to read the books and understand them all by myself. I did and soon became hooked onto the series as so many people have before and still do.
What would your Patronus be and why?
My [P]atronus would be an owl. Why? I couldn’t pinpoint it; maybe it’s my love for knowledge and reading, and owls are often the animal representation of that. Or maybe its because of Harry Potter; who can really tell? Maybe it’s both reasons combined.
Describe what being part of the Harry Potter fandom has meant to you in seven words or less.
An escape, a friendship, an adventure.
What do you think you might see if given the chance to look into the Mirror of Erised?
I would see myself standing there probably looking pretty, with my own book series I’d written. But really, if I [were] looking in the mirror I would probably be somewhere in Harry’s universe – that in itself would be a dream come true!
