My Hogwarts Letter

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.
