Hermione-Potterweek-Badge-Common-Room-7-days-of-potter-600x222Harry Potter is one of my favorite fandoms ever. Besides Star Wars, Harry Potter is my number #1. I fell in love with Hogwarts as a kid, like everyone else in this world. I read Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone while I was learning to finally read. I watched the movies on VHS (never went to the theaters as kid, weirdly) and while I never read the whole book series as kid, I loved it! It was this magical world in which every thing was awesome. Seriously. I always thought my love for Harry Potter was a phase, like many of my childhood fandoms were. But it wasn’t. It stayed and it still is with me, and many others, to this day.

IMG_9017It’s also the greatest time to be a Harry Potter fan! We have short stories popping up all the time on Pottermore, new books (THAT ARE SO BEAUTIFUL! WOW!), and even a new film based on NEWT SCAMANDER! How is this real life?! We also have theme parks, Β so take that, every other fandom ever! πŸ˜‰

I’m so happy Common Room is doing Potterweek! They’ll be different prompts for all the days and I can’t wait to share my love of Harry Potter with you all in greater detail! If you want to join in the fun, check out the main post here! Till then…

  1. That photo is perfect Travis! πŸ™‚ That’s so funny that you watched them on VHS! Did you ever get the DVDs? The Sorcerer’s/Philosopher’s Stone one had really fun special features.

  2. It’s amazing that so many of us love Harry Potter so much, and despite being introduced to it in different ways, and at different stages in life, we can all agree on that. I’ve had so much fun reading all these post around the blogosphere today. And you are absolutely right; the Harry Potter fandom is very privileged.
    Also, that picture is all kinds of amazing! πŸ˜€

    1. So happy you agree!! It’s amazing that Harry Potter is this huge thing, but we’ve all gotten into in a variety of ways. I think it makes it THAT much more special.

      And thanks! That photo is one of my all time favs!
