Before I get to the link I’m about to post, I need to make one thing very clear: I am not a fan of the Harry Potter movies.
Don’t get me wrong, anyone who knows me even a little bit knows that I’m one of the biggest, nerdiest, most obsessed Harry Potter fans you’ll ever meet—but that affection applies to the books only. Yes, I’ve seen all of the movies, but there’s still a part of me that wishes I hadn’t. The books, especially the final one, were such an emotional experience for me that there was no way the movies could ever live up to them. It sounds cheesy, but when I think about reading Harry Potter now, I think about how much I feel like I grew up along with the characters in the book, and how even though I obviously don’t have magical powers, I was dealing with a lot of the same issues they were at the same times the books were coming out. The movies could never, ever do those feelings justice, because they were so tied to the specific time of being 11, being 15, or being 19, as I learned things and changed how I thought about myself and the world along with the characters.
