How did you come by Harry Potter and fall in love with it?
So I grew up relatively poor, we never had the money to have anything or treats but my parents did try and take us to the cinema when ever they could afford it. We seen this film in cinema and my mum is a sucker for magic. She literally cries at anything magical. And we all fell in love with the movie, every year my parents made sure we could go and see the next movies. And it became a family thing. Then this year I came across the whole book collection in a Bootsale for £5 and decided I was ready to face my fears and read… Reading has always been a downfall because I read slow and I’m very self conscious, but I was ready and I’m not as slow as I originally thought. I’m on the half blood Prince and I’m finding I want to slow down because I’m won’t know what to do with myself.
Favourite magical creature. Why?
So firstly I HAVE to say the Welsh green, dragon, I must say this because it is native to my OWN country. I am very patriotic very proud of where I’m from. This dragon attempts to avoid human contact and breeds on small animals like sheep, which I can promise we have plenty of, it’s very placid and timid for a dragon. It’s ROAR is almost musical which suits it’s native land perfectly as we are known as the singing nation.
I also love the bowtruckle how fussy they are over certain trees, which helps the Wizard choose what tree’s are best for wand making. I just love how they look like twigs.
What class would I attend if I could choose one!? Why!?
I would probably choose again it’s between two, charms with Prof Flitwick or Care of Magical Creatures with Hagrid.
I would love to know how to use a wand what spells and tricks I could cast,pranks I could play. Plus from what I’ve read about Prof. Flitwick he seems fun, it’s always good to have a teacher who is fun I find I learn better if I prefer the teacher and the lessons are enjoyable.
Care of Magical Creatures.
Because come on let’s face it, who would really say no to riding on hippogriffs and having to endure flobberworms I would love to meet a unicorn. I love animals I love being around animals, I also love anything g remotely magical,so put two and two together, even better. Plus Hagrid is just beautiful although, Prof, grubbly plank knows her stuff too.
Favourite potter movie and why!?
So this is a hard one because I do love ALL of the films, but I must say Goblet of Fire or the Deathly Hallows part 2 (again I haven’t read the book yet so this may change.) The Goblet of Fire is gripping it kept me on the edge of my seat, I remember the first time seeing it, I was scared, excited, apprehensive, nervous and trembling at almost every scene. It was very good I always know if I enjoy a film by leaving the cinema with pretty much all my munch I took in. And I hadn’t even opened my pop corn bag, so that must have been a film that kept me entertained throughout.
The Deathly Hallows part2 was emotional and it’s my favourite because of how action packed and it’s the final show down. I cried from beginning to end, you get attached to the characters and the story and knowing this was the last one made me pretty much well up from the moment I purchased my ticket. Every year waiting for the new movie trailer was almost like waiting for my Hogwarts letter (which never came) and entering that cinema knowing there was no more waiting no more story to follow felt like loosing something or someone, I honestly had to grieve after watching that film, Harry Potter was my childhood, my youth, my teen years and the beginning of my adolescent life and not having it anymore felt like I had lost a part of me. But it was pretty incredible being apart of it. ❤
