At first, it was Hermione. She was smart, kind, and pretty much knew what to do in situations that she read in her books (most of the time). Even though she was bossy, she had a good heart. I was her for Halloween 3 times. Then, Order of the Phoenix came out and I started to like Luna. She was also kind but she was viewed as an outsider, like me. Also, she believed in things that no one else, even if they were true. I loved how she believed in Harry from the start and was a great friend to him. Plus, she made me smile while I was crying during Deathly Hallows, both the book and the first movie. Now, I love Luna because I see myself in her.
When I first knew of Harry Potter, my favorite character of all was Dobby. He was funny and adorable. Then it was Harry. The main character, you were able to feel what he was going through, as he experienced it, you could experience it too. Then it was Hermione. Whenever my cousin and I played Harry Potter games we had made up, we were always fighting over who got to be her. Then, I always wanted to be Lavender Brown. She was still just a bit of an extra character at that point. She was my favorite until book six came out. And then, I settled on Draco Malfoy, the character I obsessed over. In fact, to this day, once I get started on talking about him, it’s hard to shut me up. My family and friends groan whenever I mention him OR Tom Felton.
At first, my favorite character was Hermoine. It hasn’t changed as much, I’ve only added to the list. She is smart, and witty. And she is such a girl in the eyes of Ron and Harry. Sometimes moody, a know-it-all for sure, but in the end we all love her because she really is the brains out of the three. Plus, girl-power is a essential in a great book!
my favorite character would luna. I always looked to her as a role model and someone i wish i could be. I loved how she was kind of different that everyone else. She didn’t care what anyone thinks and keeps what she believes in. She is an amazing person once you get to know her. She lives in her own little world which is what i wish i could do sometimes :]
At first I loved Hermione more than any of the others because she was a bookish person like I used to be (sadly I’m not as much like her now).
Then I fell in love with Luna because she’s so wonderful in every way…I’ve never yet met a Potter fan who doesn’t like her(or Dobby).
But then I started to like Neville in OotP and cried when the trio and ginny meet his parents. And he just grew better and better. He’s easily the best character.
