    Harry Potter is one of my favourite book series ever. I love how detailed the world is and how Rowling created characters with a range of personalities, not to mention Hermione's character crushing the patriarchy. I'm a proud Ravenclaw and had no regrets buying the merch at the HP Studio Tour last week (would definitely recommend it, they have the forbidden forest in there now and the original costumes in for the summer!!)

    you went? cool :five:
    When I went last month, and were in the forbidden forest there were a load of younger teenage girls on a school trip and when the creature came down they screamed their heads off... :rofl: (Everyone else was laughing at them)
    What did you think of the prices? (my dad was in shock tbh)

    Hey fellow Potterheads! So I'm sad to say I am a little late at joining the club as I've finally just started to read the books at age 24 I've seen all the movies when they first came out but I don't know why I never got around to reading the books when I was younger as I had read other popular series such as LOTR, Stephen King's work etc but anyhoo, better late than never! :yep:

    I'm currently half way through Prisoner of Azkaban and so far, I'd say that is my favourite book though I am really looking forward to reading Half Blood Prince. I don't find it boring reading the books after the films, I'm enjoying it very much

    So what are your favourite moments from the HP series? Who is your favourite characters? What scenes from the books do you wish made it into the films?

    Feel free to add your Pottermore stats too if you fancy :yep:

    My stats are -
    House - Hufflepuff (I was very happy with the house I was allocated to :yep: )
    Patronus - Tortoiseshell cat (a cat, surprise surprise for me :teehee: )
    Ilvermoney - Horned Serpent
    Wand - Ash wood with a Dragon heartstring core 9 and 3/4 inch and quite bendy flexibility


    I think if I ever came across a Boggart, it would appear as a wasp and it would be bloody hard to try and make that look amusing! My favourite character so far is either Hagrid or Dumbledore.
    My favourite character has to be Snape, without a doubt. He literally gave his life for Harry when he hated his guts for being 'Potter's son.'

    My favourite part in the saga is where Harry pours Snape's memories into the Pensieve and finds the truth.

    I changed my name on Pottermore today to my new married name. Only now am I officially married :laugh:

    Also at the vets yesterday, I was told my cat Nibbler is a tortoiseshell cat and not a calico. My patronus is a tortoiseshell cat! :love:

    I keep meaning to get back to reading HP. I got halfway through Goblet of Fire and stopped. I will definitely get back into it though. Just had a lot on lately though and lost notion for a lot of things but I'm getting back on track, slowly but surely :yep:

    I really want to go to the Harry Potter studio tour in London

    If only I were rich and didn't hate crowds :daydreaming:
    I went on that studio tour on a coach trip with my mum in 2013.

    Try reading the Harry Potter fanfiction articles, I've just read an awesome one where Harry's parents came back to life at the beginning of his fifth year, and Lily becomes a teacher.
