Harry loves Hedwig by Nine-chances Harry loves Hedwig by Nine-chances
So I've never read Harry Potter until now. I'm onto the 5th book and it's getting really good. The movies had put me off reading them because I figured they would be just as terrible. HOW WRONG I WAS.
And what's with him having blue eyes and brown hair in the films?.. Why.
I've been having quite a rough time of it lately, and it's times like these that I love to just fall into the Wizarding world for hours and lose myself. Ahhh.. how fun it must be there. Haha.

ANYWAY. Young Harry excited about getting his owl. And like.. just sort of happy at Hogwarts before shit starts going daowwwn.

Also.. I really like Harry in the books. He's just a nice chap, haha. As opposed to the way he's portrayed in the movies where I found him irritating.

So yes, I might be late on the bandwagon but my best friend who has foamed at the mouth for this franchise for ten years is keeping me company and re-reading them for the millionth time as well. And this was for her. To thank her for making me read the books!

Nice to see another fan. I do love your Harry. Though Hedwig looks a bit annoyed. :)

I'm quite glad you've turned to the books! They're certainly pages I will continue to visit for years on. Harry looks so loving here :) he truly adores Hedwig. Daniel Radcliffe, on the other hand, creases me.

Alright, awesome. It's nice to know that HP is still bringing ing new fans, the movies really don't do it ANY justice whatsoever. It's sad. And I hate that they made his eyes blue, it's only mentioned that they're green in like EVERY friggin chapter. XP
I love Book!Harry, he's so adorable. ^^ I especially love him when he gets angry, because he deserves to fer once, having to keep all of it inside is never healthy.

I know! He's so awesome. He's just a regular likeable kid!
Yeah.. if they didn't do the right colour eyes they could have at least dyed his hair black.. *facepalm*

Yeah, it was kinda stupid, the eyes especially, they're KINDA key. But meh... Dan plays a good Harry. ^^ He made me proud.

The movies definitely don't do the books justice. HOWEVER, they are decent in themselves, even though some of the actors (coughemmawatsoncough) could be a bit better. AND this last movie that just came out, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, is almost exactly like the book. They got chapter one down almost word for word. I need to finish reading it to refresh my memory, but at least I think they did THIS movie right. Finally.
