Welcome to my second post for my friend Jillie’s Blogger Positivity Campaign! This week we’re writing letters to fictional characters, authors, ships (OTPs, not like the Titanic), or books that have helped or inspired us.
Do I even need to say I’m a huge fan? The Harry Potter series is life. But of course, you’re more than just a character. You’re a person. And not just an Emma Watson person either. A living, breathing person trapped within the pages of a book.
I think we might be twins. We are very similar. Very bookish, smart, and not afraid to show off our knowledge, even if others may get exasperated with us. It’s a hard life, but a rewarding one. We don’t know everything, but when it comes to the subjects we know and love, we are walking encyclopedias. We’re very apprehensive about things that can’t be learned from books. I’m not very sportsy either, although I might take a crack at Quidditch because I’ve always wanted to fly.
You’re also fiercely loyal, and that’s a quality I admire and try to have myself. We value our friends. You’ve never been petty, always reasonable, even if it may not always be the best thing to do, but at least you can be counted on for that.
You’ve overcome so many issues- being Muggle-born, being a bit of a know-it-all, being judged and degraded for being a girl, being attacked on several occasions both physically and verbally, and you’ve overcome all those situations. That’s no small feat. I won’t forget that when you and your friends were being teased mercilessly, you were the only one who was able to ignore it and hold your head high. Such bravery.
I feel that we would be great friends in real life. You need some positive female companionship. I like to hang around guys too, but everyone needs a best friend of the same gender. At least you weren’t exposed to much gossip, or at least not the really catty kind that teenage girls partake in.
I only hope that my story has as happy an ending as yours.
