Cute Manga Potter!

Cute Manga Potter!

Since the first Harry Potter book came out in 1997 I have been obsessed, at that time I would have been four years old so while I would not have been reading the book myself my parents would read it as my favourite bedtime story.

From then I have only grown, both as a person and as a Harry Potter fan, in fact out of all of the people I know I am the biggest Harry Potter geek XD.

When I was a child I went through some really rough things and then my mum and her partner were in an abusive relationship whilst I was growing up. I used books as an escape at that time and I ended up loving to read.

Anyway, I was searching for ways out and I found that in Harry Potter, from the moment I turned 10 in 2003 to the moment I turned 12 in 2005 I was sitting on my window sill every night praying for my Hogwarts letter to come, having never been much of a religious person it was a big step for me.

As well as that I spent all of my wishes that I either caught or blew (you know those kinds of flowers - we used to call them faries XD) on asking for the same thing. Harry Potter helped me to keep hoping at a time I had given up so for that I thank it XD.

Recently one of my friends went to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and brought me back a post card that has been Owl Post stamped, so far it is the best souvenir that anyone has every given me... IT WAS (IS) AWESOME XD.

Favourite Characters: Harry (obviously ;D), Hermione, Fred and Gorge, Bill and Charlie, Voldemort, Rodolphus and Rabastan Lestrange, Bellatrix Lestrange, Severus Snape, Remus Lupin, Sirius Black etc.

Least Favourite Characters: Dumbledore, Ron, Ginny, Mrs Weasley, Percy, Wormtail.

Favourite Book and Movie: Book = Deathly Hallows, Movie = Prisoner of Azkaban

Friends: There are a select few of my friends who are slightly less geeky about Harry Potter than I am the rest groan whenever it is mentioned XD.

Emotional Reactions: The revelations of Deathly Hallows made me hate Dumbledore for his harsh manipulations on Harry and I am not ashamed to admit that I cried like a baby when Dobby Died - it needs capitalisation - I watched the last two films together in a special midnight release and

I cried whenever anybody died, I also sobbed when the films actually ended because it meant that the biggest part of my life was over. Recently there was a programme on television called the 50 Greatest Moments Of Harry Potter and I cried through that as well, because I'm just that awesome.

Anyway that's my Harry Potter Story and I hope you enjoyed it XD.

Character disagreement (don't be offended!)
by: Sinder

The only people on your least favorite characters list I don't have a problem with is Wormtail and Percy. Also, Dumbledore and Ginny I can somewhat understand. When you find out why Dumbledore was so secretive in the end of DH, it is kind of awful and you do have reasons to dislike him.

Is there any other reason you don't like him? Also, Ginny ended up such a big part in Harry's life even though she was a character that said only about two words throughout the books and movies.

Excellent post Lisa!

Hey Lisa!

What a fantastic post. You're obviously a HUGE Potter fan :))

I liked the part where you said you were sitting on the window sill waiting for your letter. I still remember being very sad when I was told Santa wasn't real - and I'm still angry! :)) Just joking but we all want to believe in magic.

The children I teach at school are only about 6 and 7 and it's amazing the stories they come out with about what they believe. I dare not spoil their imagination because it's so precious and it means a lot to them as I'm sure it did to you sitting on that window sill.

Anyway, thanks for your great contribution and I hope you come back again as the site continues to "grow" and we can keep sharing this Potter magic.

Kind regards,
Trevor M.

P.S. I thought that Dumbledore was exactly what Harry needed to become the person he needed to become to defeat Voldemort but that's the great thing about being different isn't it! :))
