I swore I'd never do it, but here it is: My Harry Potter Post
I loved her in the books, and thought they made an excellent choice in Evanna Lynch for the films. She portrayed Luna perfectly and beautifully.
Best Teacher at Hogwarts
Course at Hogwarts I'd most like to take
Favorite BFF to Harry
This one is a toughy because Ron and Hermione are both such great friends to Harry. I sorted it out by breaking it up. My favorite BFF to Harry in the novels is Hermione. She's brilliant, quick-witted, honest and loyal to Harry, although a bit of a prude half the time. If it weren't for her, Harry would've bit it in the first book.
My favorite BFF to Harry in the films is Ron. He's such a dork, and can't help but envy Harry's constant place in the spotlight, but he was Harry's very first friend at Hogwarts and stuck with him through the worst of it all. He's also pretty funny.
Best Quidditch match
Gotta go with Harry's first ever match. Being the youngest Seeker in a century, having just learned how to fly and managing to win the match while nearly choking on the snitch? Greatness. I was surprised to find how much I enjoyed the matches in the novels. It was even better to see the games brought to life in the films (although in the first film they all resembled stick figures on a computer screen - thank God for advancement in digital art!)
Favorite novel (and film)
