Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.

29 Aug

I watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt 2 last week. I wanted to write a post about it right after I saw it, but I haven’t been able to come up with what to say.

I didn’t start reading Harry Potter until the 3rd book was released, but when I finished that book I begged my mom to buy me the first 2 books. I was hooked. After that point I spent my time thinking about Harry Potter and the magical world that he lived in. I waited with eager anticipation for the release of the next book, and the next book, and the next book. I have read all 7 of the books, plus the 2 companion books (Quidditch Through The Ages & Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them), as well as The Tales of Beetle the Bard numerous times. I own all of the movies on DVD and have watched them all numerous times as well.

In addition to the above, I have read fan fiction, participated in Harry Potter related RPGs, watched A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel, etc.

Needless to say, I am a Potter addict.

While I know that there is still the Pottermore website to look forward to (in fact, I have successfully registered for the early Beta test version), the fact that there won’t be another book or movie to look forward to is still quite saddening.

Harry Potter has definitely been a huge part of my life for over a decade and I will miss the constant anticipation for the next thing to be released. On the bright side, any time I’m missing any of my favorite characters or moments, I can always crack open one of the books and return to the place that has always made me feel safe and comfortable.

I should go check my e-mail, see if I have received my Pottermore welcome e-mail yet…
