The End of an Era, not the End of a Lifetime

HEY GURRRRRLFRIENZ,

Obviously, I am the only who blogs now (and my blogs don't really count), but that is probably because you girls all have lives.  I haven't even started high school yet so I don't really have any work to do over the summer, I don't really have any friends in real life that I feel like I can hang out with, and I basically just can't find anything enjoyable; this means that I have actual time to blog, and I know that everyone else probably doesn't.  Or maybe this blog is over?  My facebook messages have been broken for a couple months so I can't really check them.

Today I woke up at 8 AM to watch the DH part 2 London premiere.  It was just so beautiful to see how special it was to everyone.  I loved seeing how much they respect the fans and each other.  They truly think of themselves as a big family.  To watch the fans that were lucky enough to be there scream for the cast.  To see J.K. Rowling talk about how important, we the fans, were to the whole series.  To listen to the announcers call Evanna "Luna Lovejoy,"  to hear them call Oliver and James "the Neville Twins."  To know that, even though the fandom's magic won't end, there will never be another Harry Potter movie premiere.

I am so happy to be a part of this magical fandom.  We can all connect over the smallest of things.  We all help each other to enjoy the series even more.  It makes me proud to be a Potterhead.

Without Potter I would not be in the same place that I am today.  I would never have gotten in to the internet like I'm in to it right now.  I wouldn't be a nerdfighter; I wouldn't even have heard of John and Hank.  I would never have gotten in to Doctor Who or Sherlock or Supernatural or any of the other things that my life basically revolves around now.  I wouldn't have made some of my best firends.  It is terrible to think about what my life would be like without all of the magical things that have come in to my life since Potter.

Today as I watching the premiere, I cried throughout.  Not because anything especially sad was happening, but because I was overwhelmed by how everyone felt about "the end."

 DFTBA,
Haley

  1. Don't worry, I usually also don't have a live, I have just been studying for the last month because I have an important exam tomorrow, but after that I should be back!
