Maybe you know it or not, but if you don't.... I'm going to share with you my little secret. So
I am a Potterhead!
Ufff... Words were told. Now I shall probably tell you what the hell does it mean. So potterhead is a person, who's a huge, huge Harry Potter books and movies fan. Probably you heard about all those directioners or beliebers or hell-knows-what-else-fans. So there are also people that are totally crazy about books and characters and places that even don't exist (sorry other Potter-lovers, we must face the reality from time to time).
How has it started? Well that's quite a good question. I've been a fan since ever, it was one of my first best-books, which I read about 5 times in one year when I got it as a small kid. And it has stayed so, it's my fave book since that days. To be honest I think that the real "obsession" started about a year ago... I found it as a perfect way to escape from the reality. I'm often tired of school, people, boring lessons etc. and here's where Hogwarts comes out and... I'm off to a different universe. It's brilliant! Not for everyone obviously, but for me definitely= yes.
Why Potter? I've been always loving magic and I still do. Potter books are the most magic ones I've ever known and they taught me so much about friendship, love and faith. They also keep many life wisdom. It's a great story itself and nothing ever made me enjoy reading so much (I ready many many others great books, though). I love the characters, because although they're in the magic world they are still real and presenting the problems we all must often force in our lives. They feel guilty, lonely, they miss, they must fight, they're bullied, they're under families' pressure, they're weak, they're in danger. But they also taught me that Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. So when I'm sad, I feel like there's nothing worth living, I turn my light and enter Hogwarts.
Favourite part? It's like choosing your favourite M&M's flavour.... There are no M&M's flavours! Anyway, I love each part for something. Philosophers stone for the wonderful beginning and introduction to the magic world Chamber of secrets for knowing Tom and understanding why he's different than Harry Prisoner of Azkaban for teaching me not to judge people by what others say Goblet of fire for the best tournament ever and breathless moments Order of Phoenix for showing me what friends can do together Halfblood prince for Dumbledore's lessons and unbelievingly moving moments Deathly Hallows for the best ending. But if I was supposed to choose, I guess it would be Order of Phoenix, don't ask me to explain why.
Favourite character? Again the hardest question ever. I love the golden trio (Harry, Ron, Hermiona), I love the silver trio (Neville, Luna and Ginny), and Malfoy and McGonagall... And that's how I could basically mention everyone, because each person had their important part and created this wonderful adventure. Yet, my favourite character is Harry. I know it's sooo ordinary, but I always considered myself as a similar personality to him (note: I'm talking about the book version here, which is unfortunately a bit different than the movie one). Also I love Hermione so, so much. My fave teacher has always been Remus Lupin and worst character Umbridge. I really enjoyed reading about Weasley twins and Sirius Black and Draco Malfoy. Secretly I love Tom Riddle (but that's a real secret, keep it for yourself!).
In which house would I be? Story goes like this: I created a Pottermore account (which is a website for fans, created by Sony, Warner Bros and JK) and then Sorting Hat put me in... Slytherin! I was so disappointed. I had considered myself as Gryffindor since ever. After a few months I forgot my password and login, so I had to create a second account and this time I was put into Gryffindor. Yet, I done some thinking and understood that I'm somewhere among those two houses (why it's probably material for another super-long post). Finally I considered myself as Slytherin (with a Gryffindor heart).
What Potter has taught me? JK Rowling, has gently put in her books a lot of messages to her readers. I learned that there's nothing wrong in being different and we always should stay on the right side, whatever the consequences are. When it's bad there's nothing wrong in crying and sharing our emotions. And we must always remember about our friends, because they're the best thing we'll ever have and they represent the biggest value- love. (Which is the only thing Tom Riddle never understood.)
So I shared with you my little secret. I know many of you probably won't understand it (and probably there may appear some hating comments after this post), but that's not the point, I just wanted to write something about my favourite book and story. I also know there are many of you that share this passion with me and if so, please talk to me about it in comments, I'd really love to have some potter-conversations! :)
