How did you become a Harry Potter fan?

I became a Harry Potter fan when I was going through a tough time. I was in a place where I had no entertainment besides reading. I love reading, but I had no good books to read at the time, so I decided to try Harry Potter. It helped me a lot when I was sad. It also kept me realizing how lucky I was to have people who cared about me and how lucky I had it. For the most part it kept me going and kept me my happy[-]go[-]lucky self!

OMG! J.K. Rowling is writing a new film series! I am so excited for…

I am very excited to find out the name and location of the American school of witchcraft and wizardry. I can’t wait until the movies mainly for that reason!

It has changed my life!

What Potter fandom memory would you keep in your Pensieve?

My Girl Scout troop did a Harry Potter party, and we did three classes. I helped build and take down the whole thing. I taught [P]otions and did a straight quote from the first [P]otions lesson Harry ever went to. We also had [b]utterbeer, Chocolate Frogs, Chocolate Frog cards, and Jelly Slugs. Not to mention Berttie Botts! We did the Bombarda spell and [the Levitation Charm]!
