Hobbies & Interests: Writing for SS, video games
Favorite band/musician: Coheed and Cambria, The Beatles, Queens of the Stone Age... mainly alternative, pop, pop/punk, and musicals.

Fave non-HP movie: Lord of the Rings, Hunger Games, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Titanic, Inception, Wolf of Wall Street (I guess I like Leo)

Fave HP movie: I don't think that's fair given my previous responses, lol. If I were putting one on right now though, I'd probably pick Sorcerer's Stone or Order of the Phoenix
Fave character(s) and why: I'd say Neville. To watch him so unsure of being in the house of the brave, being patronized or written off for years, and then I feel like you can see/sense him learning about himself and growing as a student and person, until you see Neville in Deathly Hallows and MAN! I love him.

Anything else:I always like chatting with people but I don't think people really do that anymore :lol: I have two cats, love The Office (US version), and I don't do well with freestyle dancing.

Fave non-HP movie:Anything Avengers / MCU
Fave HP book: Prisoner of Azkaban
Fave HP movie: Prisoner of Azkaban
Fave character(s) and why: Sirius Black (you might have guessed that from my favourite HP book and movie). I didn't really know why at first, until a friend told me my personality and Sirius' (Harry Potter era, not Marauders era) are so similar. Always cheerful on the outside. Not really so much on the inside.

Anything else: I've been into Harry Potter the second I got the first book, and it hasn't stopped since. And I love all the people I've met just because we have that one thing in common (just in the last two weeks I started up conversations with two Potterheads just because they saw my Harry Potter wallet and got all excited.
And now I'm really looking forward to the new game, Wizards Unite. Have even started blogging about it, trying to share that excitement, met so many amazing people that way! And as you can see, I'm a long form writer. I tend to ramble a bit. So yeah, that's me. Hi! *waves*

Fave HP movie: Deathly Hallows Part 2
Fave character(s) and why: I love Hermione, of course. Her strength and determination are very inspirational to me, and I relate to her a lot in terms of academic overachievement! I also love Luna because of her free spirit and kindness. And let's just talk about Bill for a second - he's got to be one of the most underrated characters. I LOVE him!

Anything else: I used to play Harry Potter as a kid, where I would dress up in my Gryffindor robe and round glasses. I would then proceed to run around the house shouting spells. I sometimes forced my friends to play with me, and I'd make them be Ron & Hermione. Yup, I was a young girl who insisted on being Harry - not Hermione. I was a weirdo.

Alavander 05-26-2019 07:20 PM

Hey there, my name is Alan! I'm 33yo, married, three kids, a dog and three cats. Yup. Three cats. Wish I had a kneale though...

Read Harry Potter when I was eleven, hooked since. Read all books about 200 times each, consider myself to be a bit of a know it all about the man with the lightning scar. Fave character is Dumbledore. Book version, not 'he asked calmly' gambon.

I'm a carer to my son (non verbal low functioning autism with associated learning difficulties, to answer the inevitable question) and as I cannot work for this reason, I actually make and sell wooden wands. Not sure if I'm allowed to advertise yet...

But yeah, that's me.
