Dear Harry Potter fandom, in five words try to describe your emotions on July 21, 2007
I’m predicting we’ll all sound like a bunch of bi-polar, emotional distraught messes … but brilliant messes of course
This is where I leave you
Five years ago. Half of a decade. It seems just like yesterday. For so many fans, to think back to that day is the definition of bittersweet. I don’t know if I should smile or cry, but now that I think about it, that was my same reaction on July 21st, 2007 when I waited for Harry’s seventh and final chapter.
“We now present the seventh and final installment in the epic tale of Harry Potter”
I remember reading this then, and the feeling will always be the same. So, here it is; the place where I leave you now … where Jo has left us now.
This blog is dedicated to all writings Potter and any thought that bubbles to the surface. In honor of Harry and the childhood he’s given me I’m going to give it the attention it deserves, to go back to the beginning and for lack of better words … analyze the shit out of it.
Hope you’ll come along
“Whether you come back by page or by big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.”
Celebrating the one year anniversary of the unifying quote that made us love Jo all the more
Every time I read it, it feels like the biggest hug :) Moments like these in the Potter world feel oh so bittersweet

“No story lives unless someone wants to listen…the stories we love best do live in us forever. So, whether you come back page by page or by big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.” - JK Rowling

thank you all and in this extra nostalgic time of remembering Harry I love, I love, I love you all
It all ended here … One year ago we said goodbye…
I’ve been so busy with life that I’ve almost forgotten Harry. Okay, I’ll slow down. I never forgot Harry nor will I ever, but life sadly goes on. The books are at a close, the movies are complete … and almost one year ago to the day we said goodbye to the Harry Potter series.
July 21th will also be the fifth … FIFTH!! anniversary of Deathly Hallows. Does that blow your mind? Make you feel incredible old, sad, and nostalgic? It you feel any of these long lasting effects of Post-Potter Depression read on …
Write your love for Harry and sumbit it to me! A sentence, a paragraph, a love letter anything. You can write about the first time you pick up Sorcerer’s Stone to what Harry or any other character has meant to you to your experience at a midnight release party/screening to any feelings about these bittersweet Potter anniversaries.
All submission will be posted on July 21th
It has been a year since the end.
But the magic continues…
I have valiantly fought twenty-page research papers, countless sleepless nights, and every other university horror and SURVIVED!
Coming back to Tumblr I feel like that friend you haven’t talked to in awhile, so I’m not ashamed to say I’m in the awkward friendship stage with Tumblr until I…
‘The Casual Vacancy’ set to be released September 27th, 2012!!!
”Dear Mr. Potter,
“You have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.”
One sentence to change millions of lives, to begin a decade…
“Harry Potter…the boy who lived…came to die…”
One sentence to end-an era-a lifetime…everything.
“The stories we love best do live in us forever; whether you come back by page, or by the big screen, Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home.”…
One sentence, to bring it all back.
Re-post if you will stick with Harry, until the very end. Until the spines of your books are weakened and the pages are falling out, until you’re 80 years old and sitting in your rocking chair, reading the Philosopher’s (Sorcerer’s) Stone, and your family asks you “After all this time?” and you say “Always”.
Re-post if Harry Potter has been your light in the darkest of times, and has given you happiness.
Re-post if you will not cry because it is over, but smile because it happened.
Re-post if you believe we’ll miss the train ride in, and the pranks pulled by the twins, although it’s nowhere we’ve been, we’ll keep smiling on, from the times we had with them.
Re-post if you owe JK Rowling, Tom Felton, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Evanna Lynch, Bonnie Wright, Matthew Lewis, and the rest of the cast of HP your childhood.
