I initially loved Harry and Ron, but I think the twins will forever hold a special place in my heart. Harry became very angry and aggressive (not that I blame him at all), and the twins always gave the storyline a good bit of humor, even when it was most dark. So, Fred and George Weasley are my favorite two characters. :)

Who won? _

My favorite character is Hagrid. (And he always has). I remember, first reading Philosophers Stone (which I stubbornly call it even though live in the US because thats what Jo wanted it to be called) when I had a very bad life situation and how I dreamed of Hagrid coming and taking me away and then shopping in Diagon Alley and then going to Hogwarts. I woke up as the Sorting Hat said, “Alas, this is a Muggle!” and I got scared at the looks of everyone and woke up. Haaha, I wrote about in the journal I had. Hagrid is so kind, and humorous. I love how he was always there for Harry, Ron and Hermione. I also love his amusing fanatic love of insane creatures. I felt terrible when Rita spread those rumors, and I was actually sad when Aragog died, because he was so sad. He’ll always be in my heart :)

My fave since the beginning has always been Ron! I just love the humor and his innocence! He is just adorable, fun and hillarious! And as for Rupert Grint? They couldn’t have cast a better Ron!!!! Weasley is My King!! :)

Harry has always been my favorite. I loved watching him go from a friendless & unloved outsider, to finding where he belonged and growing from there. He is flawed like us all, but his heart is good, and he has always tried to do the right thing.

I initially loved Harry because he is, obviously, the main character and the hero, and I had a slight crush on him. Now I realize that there are other characters that I love because they represent certain sides of me. A couple years ago, I loved Hermione because I could relate to her in both our love for school and our general appearance. Now that I’m older, and possibly like school a little less than before, I’m not sure if I love Luna Lovegood – who I love for her creativity, imagination, and uniqueness – or Hermione – who I love for her cleverness and strength. I know that they are complete opposites, but I love both of them, and I cannot figure out which one I like the most. So currently my two favorite characters are Luna Lovegood and Hermione Granger.

Initially Hermione because her intellect was astounding. She was a nerd and I loved it. But now the twins are definitely my favorite characters. No matter how horrible times were, they always made situations humorous. RIP Fred Weasley, your memory will live on (but not in a diary because we all saw how THAT turned out).

I love Hermione.She is just like me! (Not trying to boast) Hermione stayed my favorite character thoughout the series. She changed over the years like I did. Hermione started as one who doesn’t break rules and was always perfect. i’m still perfect and don’t break the rules but i’ve loosened up and made more friends like she did. Thats why I love Hermione Jean Granger.

It was, and will always be Ron. I even tried dying my hair red once. Let’s just say it did not go so well.

Obvoiusly I loved Harry since the beginning because I was young and I thought I was in love. Hermione was just like me so I connected with her instantly. Then, I met Sirius and Lupin and loved their friendship. I loved Lupin’s history through his childhood when his transformations were the worst. I adored his will for life despite his past. Lupin inspires me [or as I call it, “lupinspiration”] and is now my favorite character.

Dobby. Hands down. Sirius might be a close second, but Dobby fought for what he believed in, was loyal even when it wasn’t required of him, and was just the sweetest, most loving character. His death STILL destroys me when I read/watch it.

I’ve liked Ginny from the beginning. I think we have a lot in common. I still say she’s my favorite character. I love red-heads, she’s the youngest in her family like me, she’s stubborn and smart and doesn’t back down. One of the characters that I have changed my opinion on was Sirius. I loved him at the beginning of the series because he seemed to brave and good, but during OotP, he loses that. It becames clear that even though he is for the ‘good’ side, he is a messed up character who made cruel choices. Now I’m also for heroic ‘evil’ character. hugs Sevvie and Reggie dolls I also like Luna, Hermione, Neville and Remus. And I wish Draco had been redeemed.

I was always fascinated my Snape, even from the beginning. I wondered where his intense hatred towards Harry came from, why he hated him before he even knew him. As the series went on, I grew a strong liking towards other characters such as Luna, Tonks, and even Bellatrix. However Snape was still one of the my top favorites. Although I was horribly angry with him when he killed Dumbledore, I still wanted to know more about him, and I knew there had to be reason as to why he killed him. Then, in Deathly Hallows when we heard The Prince’s Tale, my love towards his character grew even stronger. Snape is an incredibly complex character, and even from the start I was fascinated by him, and was touched even more by his story of his past, and his death that came far too soon.

"Funny place," she said, "it's a bit [i]too[/i] clean, d'you know what I mean? Bit unnatural. Oh, this is better," she added, as they entered Harry's bedroom and he turned on the light.
