Well, we have.
Harry's pretty much a member of the family here at the Maddox house. But unfortunately, Ashley, my Mom and my Dad aren't true fans. My Dad has only read the 1st book, but he has seen all the movies. Ashley has read probably the first 4 of the books and seen all the movies but my Mom hasn't read any of the books. Sad, sad times.
Mark, Lindy and I are the true fans. (AKA wizards in muggle disguise)
In that picture my hat is Ravenclaw, Mark's is Gryffindor, Dad's is Slytherin and Lindy's is Hufflepuff.
Here is what each one values according to the books
Gryffindor values- courage, chivalry and loyalty
Slytherin values-ambition, cunning and resourcefulness
Hufflepuff values-hard work, patience, friendship and fair play
Ravenclaw values-intelligence, knowledge and wit
I'm pretty sure If you sorted my family it would turn out like this - Ashley and my Mom would be Ravenclaw, Mark would by Gryffindor, My Dad and Lindy would be Hufflepuff and I'd be Slytherin (sad but probably true).
Harry Potter has changed my life. I am insanely excited for the last two movies ..but nothing compares to the books.
The Snow covered grounds of Hogwarts. Trips to Hogsmeade for butterbeer. Sneaking out in the invisibility cloak. The never ending quest to conquer He who must not be named. Every page I turned I felt like I was with them. I couldn't put the books down. We were best friends. Harry, Ron, Hermione and Laura; I was the witch in disguise J.K. couldn't mention so my cover as a muggle wouldn't be blown.
Long story short, my childhood would be really different without Harry Potter. I like to believe that it's what gave me a love for reading. I'm pretty sure I use at least one HP reference a day. I make jokes about it all the time. I daydream about going to Hogwarts (secretly doing my charms homework since I DO go there).
So this is a tribute to Harry Potter. The best book series I will ever read.

"I have been trying to tell Dumbledore ever since I was a first year that Laura should become a student at Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardy..."

THE YOUNGEST SEEKER IN A CENTURY.
The Maddox twins...best friends with Padma and Pavarti. DUH.
Hmm, difficult. very difficult. Plenty of courage, I see. Not a bad mind, either. There's talent, oh yes. And a thirst to prove yourself. But where to put you?
HP NERD FOREVER.
