Harry Potter meme.

Stolen from the wonderful muscovian...



01. When did you become a fan?
It was Christmas, either 1998 or 1999. My mom bought me SS & I read it on Christmas morning and was instantly hooked.

The books:
02. How many times have you read the series fully? All 7 books=twice. Books 1-6=five times. I can't bring myself to read DH all that often, it breaks me up.

03. Favorite book? This is the uncoolest answer ever because I know most people hate this one...but I love Order of the Phoenix.

04. Favorite character? The Weasley twins are the first characters that pop to mind. I swore I would track JKR down if she touched a red hair on either of them.....I still owe her LOL. I also love Neville, Luna & McGonagall. And Harry, which is like the uncoolest answer of them all, right? But if it weren't for Harry, there would be no HARRY POTTER, so I don't get all the hate. Yes, he gives a flawed & biased POV, but who doesn't?

05. Least favorite character? Umbridge or Pettigrew. I also hate Hermione, but I think this is due more to the fact that I can't stand Emma Watson & her eyebrow-waggling "acting" has tarnished my view of the character.

06. Favorite quote? Anything out of the twins or Dumbledore's mouths. But these are a couple of my favorites:
“Tell me one last thing,” said Harry. “Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”


Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love. ~Dumbledore

It's totally escaped my mind & I tried googling it to no avail, but when Luna, Ernie & Seamus cast their Patronus Charms to help the Trio get to the Shrieking Shack during the final battle and she says something to Harry along the lines of "We're still here. We're still fighting." Oh, Luna ♥

And when Harry is going into the Forbidden Forest in DH and presses the Snitch to his mouth & says "I am ready to die now"...oh, man, that gets me everytime D:

07. What other Potter related books do you own?
The supplemental books by JKR:
Fanstastic Beasts & Where to Find Them
Quidditch Through the Ages
The Tales of Beedle the Bard


Also, Harry, A History by Melissa Anelli.

The movies & fandom:
08. Favorite adaption book to movie? Goblet of Fire

09. Actor who most portrayed their character as you imagined it: Evanna Lynch as Luna. Perfection.

10. Harry Potter merch you own: Oh, god, do you really want me to answer this? All the movie soundtracks...posters...Sirius Black's "Wanted" poster as both a tin sign and a silk wall hanging...a watch...some t-shirts...a couple Harry dolls...3 or 4 snowglobes...Christmas tree ornaments...a Harry playing Quidditch mobile (SO FUCKING AWESOME)...some puzzles...a piggy bank...a photo frame...Harry's wand...trading cards...coloring books...sticker books...these little statue things (I don't know how else to describe them)...a ViewMaster...an UNO game...HP SceneIt...computer games...GameBoy games...a Gryffindor Quidditch track jacket...bookmarks...a Hedwig Beanie Baby...desk & wall calendars for every year since the first movie was released...all the movies on DVD(and the first 2 on VHS lol)...and this awesome box set thingie...I know there's more, but that's all I can think of off the top of my head.

Cool meme! I'm in such a Harry Potter mood right now because of the movie.

I think my favorite line in the whole series is from the first one when Dumbledore says something about how death would be a great adventure...

Me too! I'd forgotten how much I missed the fandom. Have you seen the movie yet? I don't know when I'll be able to go :/

ITA. I was a little fuzzy on some of the quotes for that one questions & went to MuggleNet...there are soooooooo many good ones from Dumbledore to choose from....

It's disgusting, I see Harry's wittle face on something & I OMG*have* to buy it :P

Her fucking eyebrows should be given a co-starring credit. I can't watch her, I end up watching those caterpillers instead of listening to what she's saying.

YOU HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE YET!!!
I couldn't go to the midnight showing cause it sold out here in po'dunk Michigan and I was PISSED>> I've gone to every movie at the midnight showing since they came out, I had a rather unlady-like reaction to the news.

But I've finally seen it. It was good. The special effects were great and there was definitely some really funny/awkward scenes, but they fucked with the storyline like they always do and I was pissed about the stuff they left out/changed around. Plus Dumbledore's death was pretty uneventful...not like in the book where I sobbed after it happen. However what can you expect when Sirius died by floating through a CURTAIN. Death by curtain, perhaps one of the WORST FUCKING DEATH SCENES EVER. However that's a completely different conversation.

Nooo. I don't know when I'll get to see it.

I think I'm almost at the point where I'll cheer for Dumbledore to die in the movie, cause I can't stand the way Michael Gambon plays him. If it was still Richard Harris, it'd be another story.

LOL you're so right about Sirius. He did so many badass things & then was killed by drapery.

I HATE MICHAEL GAMBON!
I'm glad you feel the same way. He has ruined that character completely for me. His mannerisms and the way he emphasizes words drives me absolutely crazy.

Let me know when you finally get a chance to see the movie, I want to know what you think about certain parts.

UGH the part in Goblet of Fire, when he gets rough with Harry over whether Harry put his name into the goblet...I'm always yelling @ the TV "DUMBLEDORE DID NOT DO THAT!!!" And LOL @ the way he says "Beauxbatons" when the girls first get to Hogwarts :P
