Which character do you relate the most to?

I suppose I relate the most to Neville Longbottom, even though my favorite character is Draco.

How did you get to become a fan of HP?

I was bored and went to the library around the corner and decided that it was finally time to start reading HP. I read the first three books in a few weeks and then got bored in book 4 with all the Quidditch World Cup business. A friend of mine told me that I had to power through all of that because "sh** goes down" in the 4th book. A few months later I was in North Carolina at the beach with nothing to read. i decided I wanted to read the rest of HP RIGHT THEN. Unfortunately, I had no access to it and read one of my friends fanfics on my phone, instead. I was hooked. The minute I got back to NY, I ran to Barnes and Noble and bought GoF. In the next 3 1/2 weeks, I finished the series then began to read fanfics almost daily. Last October I started working on my own fic and rediscovered my love for writing.

What is your favorite book? Why?

My fav book is Half Blood Prince because it shows Draco's vulnerability and makes him a sympathetic and relatable character. I feel JKR didn't give Draco a fair chance in the end.

Who is your favorite character? Why?

Draco Malfoy. I feel like he is just a hurt kid who is covering a wealth of feelings with a false bravado. He was totally a redeemable character and I hate that we never got to see all of that in DH (except at the end when he and Harry sort of nod at each other.)

Which house are you a member of?

Hufflepuff. I was too meek to argue with the Sorting Hat over that one.

Introduction

My name is Kristen and I am surprisingly new to Harry Potter. I started reading the book about a year and a half ago after many years of ridiculing my friends (I know, the blasphemy!) and now write my own fics and read the books to children!
