Hi Disnerds and Potterheads,
Welcome to the Melbourne Disney and Harry Potter Fan Club! :)
This is a group for people who are fans of both Disney and Harry Potter (or one or the other is fine) and who are looking for a fan club to join in a safe and comfortable environment. We will meet about once or twice a month, and activities will include chatting all things Disney and Harry Potter, book clubs on each Harry Potter book, both Disney and Harry Potter dress up days\nights, trivia, watching Disney or Harry Potter movies, merchandise shopping at The Store of Requirement etc. and so much more.
Disney and Harry Potter are both my all time favourite franchises in the whole world and I am wanting to meet others who share my love for these incredible stories. This was originally an all girls fan club, but not anymore so everyone is welcome.
My favourite Disney movies are Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, 101 Dalmatians, The Aristocats, Peter Pan, Lady and the Tramp, Tarzan, plus many more. I'm very familiar with the classics as that's what I grew up with, not so much the newer Disney, but I still appreciate it regardless. Belle is of course my favourite Disney character of all time as she is someone who I can strongly relate to and who I think is my soul sister. I adore her. Also Alice, as she is someone who I can relate to, and I have always been fascinated with Alice in Wonderland from a young age. And of course my good friend Eeyore. I just want to hug him!
Harry Potter is one of the most wonderful franchises and I'm so grateful that J.K. Rowling created this magical world. She is a genius! I admit that I didn't read the books until about three or four years ago as I grew up on the movies, but reading the books changed my life forever. They are the most clever, magical and enchanting stories that I have ever read. In my personal opinion, they really outdo the movies and I can't ever look at them the same way again. Luna Lovegood is one of my heroes. It's wonderful to have a strong, quirky, unique, beautiful and intelligent woman to look up to. Like Belle, she is my soul sister.
A little background about me. My name is Violet. I'm 23 years old. I am a dog mum to three beautiful little dogs. My number one love is animals and I have always been very passionate about them from a young age. I also love writing, reading, painting, drawing and of course all things Disney and Harry Potter.
This group is limited to fifty members only as it's more affordable to run, and it's much easier for me to run a group with limited numbers rather than several. I'd encourage you to attend an event or two and to remain active as I don't want people who genuinely want to join and come to events to miss out if you are taking up their place by remaining inactive. I hope you consider this before joining.
Before we move things along, I need to set some boundaries and rules for the group to make it a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone involved. Also please have a clear photo of yourself on profile (not of a cartoon, cat or dog etc, it needs to be you) just so I can recognise you at events, and answer the questions that I have provided in a bit of detail (not one word answers) so I can get a good sense of why you are interested in joining the group and so I can get to know you a bit. If you are confused by the questions or need any help, please feel free to contact me.
1. Bullying and any inappropriate behaviour will not be tolerated in this group whatsoever. So please respect everyone and be kind and compassionate. If there is any harassment, put downs, rudeness or anything nasty, you will be booted from the group immediately. I don't want anyone to feel unsafe or unsupported, so respect is a huge moral for this group.
2. If you are wanting to bring a friend or partner along to events, please let me know beforehand so I know who is coming.
3. If you can no longer make an event, please change your RSVP to no! That is a very important rule as it is very annoying not having people show up and waiting around for them when I have tried so hard to plan these events for you all. So out of respect, please make sure you change your RSVP. I will flag you as a no show if this isn't considered. Thank you.
4. Also if you can’t attend an event, please give me at least 1-2 days notice instead of dropping out at the last minute on the day, unless necessary. I only host events with 3+ people (including myself) so if by any chance we don’t have enough people, I’ll have to postpone to another time.
Okay, that sounds about right. I hope you enjoy my group and I look forward to meeting you soon! :)
Also adding that the group photo does not belong to me, so I can't take credit for it. I found it on google.....
