Random Harry Potter meme because I'm bored....
01. The character I first fell in love with
Harry Potter of course!
02. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
James Potter. There wasn't too much about him in the first four books, only huge compliments for his character, which was cool, but a one demensional character is never that interesting. Then I read SWM and fell in love with his character. He was FLAWED. He was three dimensional. He was HOT. I despise Snape too - so that helped a ton ;)
03. The character everyone else loves that I don't
Severus Snape. Complex? He did everything because of one thing - Lily was his motivation for everything. That does not make one complex. The Prince's Tale turned him into a pathetic creep and the "love" for Lily really bothered me. Joining the Death eaters because he thought it would impress her?! Did he listen to her at all during their friendship?! Or respect her? Treating the son she died for like crap?! So yeah, his only "redeeming" thing wasn't very redeeming in my opinion.
04. The character I love that everyone else hates
Well, not everyone hates him, but James Potter gets a lot of unfair bashing. And immature teen that grows up is NOT worse than a death eater (genocide people!) that we know for sure never grows up, no matter which way you slice it.
05. The character I used to love but don't any longer
My love for Harry died down over the last two books, same with Ron. Though if I had to pick one, it would be Remus Lupin. Loved him in the third, could not stomach him in the seventh.
06. The character I would shag anytime
JAMES POTTER. Though if Lily's around, I'd be okay with Sirius. ;)
07. The character I'd want to be like
08. The character I'd slap
Snape, Lupin, Harry, and Ron.
09. A pairing that I love
Lily/James. Loved the tension in SWM, love James, loved the description of their wedding picture, love the fact we can imagine so much about them, and went "awwww" when James defended her in SWM, despite her humiliating him.
10. A pairing that I despise
If it isn't obvious already, Snape/Lily. Ewww, why? If they couldn't work together as friends, what makes you think they could work as a lasting romantic couple?!
