But now after all these years and so much time spent in the world of Harry Potter, it sadly comes to a close. I'm not sure what will happen after Deathly Hallows Part 2 ends, but I know a part of me will be lost. I will always have the books to look forward to reading and the DVDs to watch endlessly, but Harry will no longer be having new adventures. He's married with kids now (spoiler alert) and I just can't believe we have made it to the end.
I never thought that a series of books and film could take over my life so completely, yet here we are years after Sorcerer's Stone was first published and I am a complete and udder fanatic for it. This was and will always have been my childhood. I grew up with Harry, Ron, and Hermione. I experienced everything they did. They taught me how to stand up for myself, fight for what's right, love those that are close to you, and that sometimes being expelled is in fact worse than being killed.
I can never thank Jo enough for what she has done in my life. Not even taking into account what she has done for us redheads. You don't know how many people have come up and talked to me just because I looked liked a Weasley. But Jo really helped mold my life as a child, teenager, and now young adult. There are just so many things I wish I could say to her, but all that seems fitting now is "Thank you so much for everything. Thank you for never giving up on your dream and sharing with us the story of Harry. It truly inspired me in more ways than you will ever know. Thank you."
In 3 days, Harry Potter comes to a close and it only seems fitting that in 28 days, my childhood come to a close. Harry Potter has been my life and I would never give that up.
This is for those who have stuck with Harry until the very end.
"You'll stay with me?"
"Until the very end."
"No story lives on unless someone wants to listen.The stories we love best do live in us forever.So whether you come back by page or by the big screen,Hogwarts will always be there to welcome you home."-JK Rowling
