It very probably that Harry is going to win this tournament considering that we all love him so much and hence he is the most popular! I, however, would like to see Hermione win.

It would be nice if Harry wind this. I think that would make Jo happy. For what she said in a recent interview… she seems to think fans are not fond of him? Which makes no sense, after all, this Harry’s story, we would have read 7 books if we didn’t love reading about him.

@ethanHP: that would be so nice! very smart of you _

Urghhh why do they have Rita vs. Hermione—I love them both sooo much! Argh, I guess I’ll pick Hermione, but…why??? <3

And, oh haha, if Molly meets Aragog (which most likely is gonna happen) and Bellatrix will beat Cho (by a landslide probably) then they’ll be against each other.

Hoping for-
Top 8- Harry, Hagrid, Dumbledore, McGonagall, Dobby, Bellatrix, Voldy, Slughorn.

Top 4- Harry, Dumbledore, Hagrid, Bellatrix

Top 2- Harry, Hagrid

Winner- Harry :)

Love them all though..
