Day 1: Your favorite book?
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, though it’s only slightly more my favorite than The Half-Blood Prince. HPSS is my favorite because it’s the beginning, and not just of the story. When I first read Harry’s story, I could sympathize- sure I had a great home life, but school was like living with the Dursley’s. (And we would both escape to a park near our houses to escape. Though that came later.)
He was friendless, frumpy and miserable, and then he got magic. He was suddenly so much more, his parents weren’t just any other people but heroes, and he made friends. Not to mention he got an owl, come on, that’s just awesome! So it was a beginning of hope for me, that one day I would be able to make friends and go somewhere safe to escape the bullies, the fear and the sadness. I got that at Winthrop, actually. No more bullies, I made friends that I still know and suddenly I wasn’t the reject of the group.
Another first was having a book I re-read almost instantly, rather than returning to it when I was bored. I think I read my original copy of HPSS (A paperback that didn’t live long) about 20 times before mom got me a hard cover when book 2 was coming out. Speaking of mom, I must of tortured her (and dad, but he slept in the car) when I dragged her to the book openings at Books-a-Million. (Yeah, apparently B&N was better, but I don’t care.) Reading the 2nd to 7th books were my first all nighters. They were so much more fun than the ones I do now.
Harry Potter was my first obsession. I’ve been fans of things, YuYu Hakusho, Tenshi Muyo, Sailor Moon, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Barbie, Lion King and (as I’m often reminded by mom) The Jungle Book. But none of them were things I liked nearly as much as the HP series. Yeah I would watch Jungle Book over and over, but like everything else, there was always something else to do and they were only fun for a few times in a row. So maybe I have a problem, but at least I’m not alone in that.
And the last first I have to share, is my first old man crush. Severus Tobias Snape <3 . Yeah, I know I’m weird. Not like a give a crap. I started liking
Snape Severus (I’ve loved the man for years, we’re on a first name basis by now, right?) because he was a snarky, emotionless bastard. He could verbally lash anyone into a corner, never showed when something hurt him, and he was killer in all black and a diabolical goatee. (I could rant about the lack of goatee or any facial hair on Alan Rickman, but it’s really not about looks, you know.) Little Nina, self-conscious and alone wanted to be like Severus. In billowing black robes, brewing poisons because she could and making people cry with just a few words and a dirty look. That was a beautiful thing back then. Obviously he developed into a much deeper character, but that is another day for this challenge (because I totally didn’t start to rant about Sev. Nope.)
Lastly, HBP is my very close second favorite because of all the Severus in that book. You learn his side, he becomes a deeper character and we all know I love love love Sevvy. Interestingly enough, my liking of Alan Rickman (despite popular belief) is entirely unrelated to him playing Severus. (Didn’t help my liking of Mr. Rickman though.) I saw him play in Love Actually as Harry and started having a separate crush on him then. I think it was the glasses and the accent. (I could swear I didn’t think they were the same person, but I doubt I’d be believed.)
And come on, it’s the Harry Potter book series! What’s not to love? (Besides the extended camping trip)
