Well, I think it will be nice, if all the Fans of Harry Potter will tell each other where are they from, how did they become to be interesting in Harry Potter, who is your Favorit hero and why. Let`s talk about yourself, guys :)
Well I'm from the good old US of A, I found the HP series to be interesting because my parents wouldn't let me watch the Filme so I had to read all the Bücher first, then I was hooked when I got my SS copy on my 8th birthday. My Favorit hero....either Dobby oder Neville. They both were strong when needed to be and Dobby just made such an incredible sacrifice; Neville also sliced the shit out of Nagini so that was badass.
ok... I'm spanish; I saw a Harry Potter book for the 1st time when I was 9, I read a few pages and I thought that HP saga was cool; my favourite character in the saga are the Todesser (yep, they aren't AN ONLY ONE CHARACTER but, I can't choose) because I find them so crazy and cool (and Bella is one of the best duelists, and Barty Jr. could escaped from Azkaban and from his dad's house because he wanted to serve his Lord, and... each one has somethig that makes him/her special) ;)
I am from Mexico but I live in the USA. I started Lesen the Bücher in 2004 (after watching the first three movies). I got the first two Bücher as a Weihnachten present that year. I became a Fan immediately. I quickly fell in Liebe with the story and the characters. My hero is Ron. I Liebe him. He is a fantastic guy. Weasley is my King. :)
Hi, I'm Emma, and I'm from Finland. (God, that sounds like I'm at an AA meeting oder something...) In my old school in Barbados (yeah, I used to live there ^_^) they gave out three badges per class each week: Behaviour, Effort and Courtesy. (Bear with me, please, this is an important back-story) Well, I never got the courtesy badge, but I did get the other ones sometimes... and whenever I did, my mum would get me some kinda prize. One time, in October 2OO3 (I was eight), she got me Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (yes, I've just learned how to do the italics and will keep shoving them everywhere) when I got the Effort badge. The best prize I've even gotten. So anyway, I was hooked. Like, right away. As soon as I finished PS, I begged mum to get me CoS, PoA and GoF (one italics is quite enough for one answer, I think), the only ones that had come out so far. I remember one morning, I sat down and re-read PS-PoA and half of GoF in that one day... And so on. I got OotP and HBP almost as soon as they were released, because neither a tiny little island like Barbados nor a rather insignificant country like Finland has midnight release parties. -sigh- And then... the releasing of DH came, and I was at a camp. In the States. But I got it as soon as I came home, and read it in a day... so all's well that ends well.
My favourite hero... Luna oder Neville, they're true heroes. But my favourite character would have to be Severus. (ignore my name at this point, please.) EDIT: no it isn't O_o I dunno what I was thinking, er, six months ago. Actually, it's the Marauders. (you can keep on ignoring my name).
That's my story. (Here we go with the AA again...)
Well, I'm from England. I first read Harry potter when I was was 6, but didn't like it. I read it again after seeing OoTP playing on the TV in Currys (I wanted to know what happened). So I read them, and fell in love. :D My favourite hero is...I don't know. I like all the people in the Marauders era, probably Snape, though.
Well, I come from Bosnia. I first read HP and PS on Summer 2002, when I was 9. I actually asked my grandmother to buy me another book, but they were sold out and she came with HP. I was first angry of her but today I thank God that those Bücher were sold out. My Favorit character is Ron. Because he always makes me smile, even after rereading the series for 10th time. He is also smart and a very good friend :)
Ok,so I'm from Bosnia and Herzegovina(no,we're not in war,haha).I never got a chanse to read HP until I became Fan and bought the books.I saw the first fim 6 years ago,and I loved it!But,I still wasn't a huge fan.I was a kid,and all kids Liebe HP.So after I saw CoS(on TV)I was in Liebe with them.Thet was on December 25th 2006.I'm really sad caouse I didn't became Fan earlier,but still...I am and that's what matters! I Liebe all the characters,I have something in common with every one of them.But,I'll have to go with Hermione,because she is what every womem has to be.Smart,strong,independent,brave and ambitious.But I'm Mehr like Ginny,to be honest!
I live in America, I started Lesen the series when I was nine but stopped Lesen a few months later because I got bored with it (I was just Lesen the third book) two years and a couple months later on my 12th birthday when I watched POA I started Lesen the Bücher again to try to understand the movie better (It kinda confused me a little) and I've been hooked on since, and my fav character is Dobby. I loved Dobby from the start and he tried to protect and save Harry from danger when he knew the risks and he died protecting the boy who set him free. RIP Dobby
well im from hereford in the UK i 1st heard about harry potter in 2002 when i was 7 they were saying stuff about chamber of Secrets in a newspaper my mom and dad took me 2 see it (at the time i didnt know it was based off a book) then in 2005 and 2006 i had to read the 1st 4 Bücher for school and i liked them but then i forgot about them untill i saw half blood prince last Jahr then i got rly into it again my sister brought me the Bücher and dvds of the Filme so far tho i got the 5 book with my own money tho she didnt get all the Filme tho i got the 1st 2 Filme after i saw the 2nd oh and i saw POA in the cinma as well and i got a crush on Daniel when i did and i still do
as for my fav character my fav wud be harry allways has been allways will be why u ask
bec he's Merida - Legende der Highlands the main hero is there for his Friends and he is my role model
Well the RP-ers did this on the Bellatrix spot, but it doesn't hurt to share. I currently live in Texas, but I am originally from a small town in Ohio. I was the most reluctant among my Friends to get into HP. My first experience was seeing the third film which in line for the film I was surrounded Von kids in capes and I wanted to run away. In college, all my Friends were into HP also so eventually I read the Bücher and decided that HP was actually entertaining. I guess my Favorit hero would have to be Snape, but I Liebe the Weasley twins (despite my choice of character to RP).
I live in California (yea yea CA girl) and I had heard of HP when I was prob in like...maybe third grade? Idk...but read them for the first time last summer. I thot the sounded kinda odd, but when I started Lesen them I just fell in LUV! Favorite...hmmm...Hermione!!! Liebe her!!! :D Sekunde fav being Ginerva! :D (Yes, I call her Ginerva)
I live in a small town with a big library. I actually saw most of the Filme before I got interested in the Harry Potter stories. I used to fall asleep during the movies. Then I started Lesen fanfiction and all these temrs were confusing me. So I rewatchedd all the movies(cept deathly hollows), read all the books, and read alot of fanfiction. My Favorit hero is Tom Riddle before he went and became a loony. He was cool and mysterious before.
I'm from the east coast in America and ive been a Fan of Harry Potter since the Bücher first came out the in u.s. - i was 7 ;) my Lesen teacher read them out loud to our class and i was hooked!
My Favorit hero has been Professor McGonagall for as long as i can remember (although Dumbledore and Molly Weasley are super duper close Sekunden and thirds). McGonagall is tough on the kids but she loves them and will do anything to protect them, Dumbledore, and the school. Plus she has a great sense of humor and sarcasm ;) I've always admired her.
well i first knew harry potter from the vedio game harry potter and the chamber of secrets when i was 6 i luved it then my uncle told me it was a VG based on a movie and he brought me harry potter1 and 2 on CDs and since then i'm a harry potter fan
Hi, I'm from Denmark. I saw the first movie when I was 9 and then around 12-13 I began to read the Bücher ^^ One of my Favorit characters is Bellatrix, I like that she's this crazy insane person but still is so evil!
Well im from Australia, and i became interested in harry potter when i was 7-8 years old, i got the first two Bücher from a birthday gift didnt give much thought till the first movie came out when i was 8 and from then one i became an absolute fan I dont really have a hero in harry potter, i always thought they all are Heroes in a way, though my favourite character is Hermione, her courage to modify her parents memories that would be tough, as well as keeping on Harry's side even if it means danger to her life :) (Im a harry/hermione shipper, doesnt mean i dont like ron/hermione together its just every since Lesen the Bücher i have loved them as a couple)
And some cool fact about me is that i have the same birthday as Rupert Grint :D, 24th August, how awesome, his one of the many favourite actors, cant wait till i see his film wild target!!!
I'm from Germany and I started Lesen HP when I was 7. My friend always took the Bücher to school and read them in the lessons because we were in a very bad class so we learned all very slowly, so we two became bored. I got interested in the Bücher because my friend was such a great Fan and even our teachers sagte that if our marks stay good, it would be better to read than to talk in the lessons :) But after the first books, it always lasted so long until the Weiter book came out. Of course, every time the series went on, I borrowed the new book from the bibliothek and enjoyed it, but I hadn't the whole story in my head anymore. So some time after DH, I nearly forgot HP :( Fortunately, I owned OotP and some time ago, I just wanted to read it again. I got into the whole series again, bought all the Bücher and movies, read and watched them again in german and english.
My favourite hero is maybe Harry, but I Liebe all the characters, especially Dobby, Fred and George, McGonagall, Hagrid, Neville...
Hi! My name is Cherrie. I come from Hong Kong. I am 13. I read Harry Potter since I was 10. I fell in Liebe on it since I read it. It is exciting. My favourite character are Albus Dumbledore and Severus Snape. I Liebe Dumbledore because he was polie and very clever. I Liebe Snape because he loved Lily very much and he was very brave!
My name is Tammie and I'm from KCMO USA. I got into HP heavy when the 3rd movie was coming out into theaters and believe it oder not it was the trailer that got me started on Lesen the Bücher and I was hooked ever since. My Favorit female character is Luna. I also Liebe Hermione and Snape A LOT too. My Favorit male character is Draco, but Snape is almost equally loved Von me.
I live in Australia, Im not really sure how i got into the series. I do remember trying to read it when i was little but not really liking it. Then i think the Filme came out and they peaked my interest again.. My fave person from the series.. thats a hard one, well i Liebe Luna, cause she's totally awesome. And i also like Ginny(in the books, not movies), cause she really develops during the series and she starts to stand up for herself.. i suppose having 6 brothers would do that to Du though. lol
My name is Hailey and i live in Memphis Tennesee. I became a Harry Potter lover in the 5th grade. The summer before 5th grade i was hanging out with my cousin in Florida, and she was Lesen The Goblet Of Fire. I had heard of the Bücher and seen some of the movies, but not to the point where i was really into it. Anyways, she kept going on & on about how awesome it was & i was like "i wanna read it!!!" but she was like "u gotta read the sorcerer's stone 1st!!!" so we went to Bücher a milion & got the sorcerer's stone. when school started back, i started Lesen it, saw all the movies, decided that Bellatrix, Luna, Tonks, and Hermionie are the most awesome characters in the entire world, & the rest is history :)
Im Annie from Europe. i used to hate Harry potter but then I rembered how many good times me and my little sis had doing Harry Potter related stuff. Also when I heard Twilight would replace it something just made me mad and like Harry Potter more.I honestly dont like the heros XD but I ♥ Bellatrix she kicks a**.
Well, I am from the USA. Northern part of it. Fargo,North Dakota. I am 21 years old, I just turned 21 on July 13th ( big deal in the US, its the legal drinking age-BEER, MARTINIS!ok) My name is Alyssa and I was named after an Italian-American actress named Alyssa Milano best known for " Who's the Boss" and " Charmed", and get this she was the model figure for my Favorit Disney Princess - Ariel. Forgot to mention I share a birthday with Harrison Ford( Han Solo/Indiana Jones). I didnt like Lesen very much when I was young and I was about 9 and still Lesen " kids" Bücher when I should have been Lesen chapter books, so my mom bought my brother and I each a paperback copy of " The Sorcerers Stone" in 98 and I loved it. Then I bought it in hardcover and then I got all the other Bücher as they came out. And when I heard about the movie adaptation in 2001, I was so excited, but I wondered how on earth they were going to do it. But they all have been great. My Favorit Wizard is Snape and Favorit witch is Bellatrix, BUT I hated them both to begin with. They grew on me and I liked them in the movies, so I suppose I have Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter to thank partially. Now I am still a die-hard Fan all these years later and I have a crap load of Harry Potter stuff.
Off topic but kind of interesting: For guys/gals who like superheros
My Dad and Brother both share a first name with a superhero: My Dads name is Bruce ( Bruce Wayne/Batman)
Well,my name is Richu and I'm from Kerela in India.I didn't like Harry Potter Bücher first.I saw the Filme and liked it.But I still didn't want to read the book.Then when I was in 4th grade and DH released,my sister forced me to read HP.I started Lesen HP and found it quite cool.So I continued Lesen and became a crazy fan.I am still a HP Fan and will always remain to be one

I watched the first film when i was 8 oder 9 and i really like it....I kind of Lost my interest for some years ( i am sorry don't kill me...i don't know how this happen...XDXDXD)but i was hooked again about 2 years Vor Probably i am the only one HP Fan from my Friends oder maybe not... i don't know.... we didn't have the chance actually to talk about that very much...Anyway my favourite character is Ron because he is always so funny and makes me laugh but i really like Hermione for her courage not to be afraid to be herself and dealing with two boys for so many years...;)
I'm Ellen, I'm from Belgium.I had the first book on my 11th oder 12th birthday,I don't really remember,and I liked it from the start.I've seen the first movie in February 2002,so I suppose I got the book when I turned 11.A couple who were Friends with my parents took us to the Filme to distract us from my sister's death.I haven't seen the Sekunde one in the movies,but I have him on dvd and I've seen all the other's in the movies.And I'm already counting down the days until November 17 2010 :)
Okay, so I read HP when I was 6 oder 7 and fell in Liebe with it, while most people in my class didn't know one thing about it except for the scar and the wands. In 4rth grade I had a rep as "The Potter kid" which my Friends still associate to me and I have 2 posters in my room :D
Hello, I'm from Europe - Ukraine. I started Lesen Harry Potter, when I was 12 oder 13. Till that time only 4 Bücher were published. In fact, I din't like o read at all and when I first saw the book, I thought that I could read it the whole year, but read it only in a week. That was the first really INTERESTING book I've read in my life. so the other Bücher I read in 2-3 days :)
Hello ,Im Australian , I was first introduced to the world of Harry Potter age 5, my ex stepmum to be and my dad read it to me then took me to see the first movie which came out on my birthday and I have been hooked ever since, every Jahr I asked for the Weiter book/dvd for bday's and christmas's. I am now fourteen and feel really connected to the Harry Potter world ,it's helped me escape from my problems with my family. I familiarise myself with Harry and Hermione the most out of the characters simply because there are apsects of them both that I can relate to. I look up to Hermione (Emma) because of her smarts, passion, girl powerness and her loyalty to herself and Friends no matter what anyone thinks (: I aslo realte to Luna cause of her difference from everyone else and how she is an outcast .
*waves* Hi! I'm Paulina from Poland, though I currently live in Norway. I got into the HP series quite late, I was 20 if I remember correctly and OOTP was already out. I started Lesen out of boredom and actually, OOTP was the first one I read. I became fascinated with the books, especially with one Severus Snape who very fast became my favourite character. I stayed away from the Filme untill I read all the Zurück books. When I finally got to watch the Filme I fell in Liebe with Severus Snape all over again and I also fell hard for Alan Rickman who quickly became one of my favourite actors :) That's my short story, thanks for Lesen :)
I live in America and i saw the first few Filme at a Friends house and when i was in 3rd grade i read the ss and loved it and thats how i became a hp fan. My Favorit charecter would have to be Ginny because of her happy independent attitude Neville because even though he may seem to be nervous and clumsy at times hes a true hero when he needs to be. oder dobby because hes always willing to put others first
Hi! I'm Miranda from Canada and I started Lesen Harry Potter as a bedtime story at my grandparents. I didn't really keep up then about 1 Jahr Vor I picked up the book and loved it. I've been a devoted Fan ever since.
*Waves* Ello there, my name is Sarah, and I'm a student at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! ...In my mind. On the outside I'm stuck in America, with seven amazing books! I grew up in a family of Potter, and the summer before I started third grade, I think I was about eight, I picked up the Sorcerer's Stone, and read it, I finished the series in sixth grade, (I read an immense amount of other Bücher through those years at the same time as HP, mind you) and then I reread the series in about a Jahr and a half, still Lesen tons of other books. I dearly adore the Filme almost as much as the books, and have had the privilige of seeing all of them but number 5 in theatures. My Heroes are Neville and Luna. They both are just amazing, and Luna is kind of that rare pleasant person who is off in their own world of awesome, and Neville is that guy who can't really get it right. I'm kind of like both of them, and I think that's why they're my favorites. I also really admire Dobby! RIP sir, RIP!!!!! Thank Du for Lesen my ridiculasly long and badly spelled ramble. okay bye!
I'm a proud American, and I first heard of Harry Potter when I was four and my older sister was Lesen it. But I didn't officially start Lesen the series until the 6th book came out. One of my Favorit characters is Neville because of how much he changed towards the end from being a little first tear who forgot everything to a completely different person :)
Hey, im from australia :) think i was 10-12yrs when i first started Lesen the first book, i didnt like it and put it down. When the first movie came out in 2001, mum and i saw it and i was hooked! After that i read all the Bücher that i could get my hands on and fell in Liebe with the series and the Filme when they respectively came out...the Mehr and Mehr i read the Mehr i couldnt put it down, escape for a few hours into the world of harry potter and the people around him.
Whose my favourite character? Tough question, they all great characters with their strengths and weaknesses. Their different personalities and their life journeys and whatnot, i can relate to several different characters and admire them for their personality traits and acts: Snape, Sirius, Luna, Hermione, Harry and i prefer book ginny to movie ginny :)
-I'm from Latvia [It's in Europe, Weiter to the Baltic sea]. -I don't remember exactly how old I was when I had the opportunity to read the first book [I was quite young], but I do remember that I didn't like it. The beginning seemed boring for me, so I didn't read the book. The Sekunde opportunity was, I guess, Jahr oder two later and then I got all crazy about Harry Potter. I still like it, especially now, when the Filme are almost as good as the Bücher [Let's be real, the first two Filme weren't too good] -My favourite hero.. A very hard decision. It could be Luna, cause she was such a great personality and a lot braver one than all the people that laughed at her. And she didn't really care what others thought of her, she didn't change her style only because a lot of people thought it was weird.. Yup, she's my favourite ;D
O K..First i thought i'll post when i get time.But when i got time i saw that its full and i don't wanna be left out, do i?
Its only 1 Jahr since i became an HP fan, you'll be surprised to hear.I became a Fan in 2009 April - summer vaccation. Until that, i didn't know anything abt HP.Except that i know its a series of books.My father always compelled me to read Harry Potter Bücher (even though he didn't) when i always complained abt not having enough Bücher to read.But i thought that its a book for intelligent, book-worms(as i didn't know abt it clearly).Then too, one day, at night, i took out one book and started reading.it was the 6th one as i didn't know the order.Obviously,I couldn't understand anything as i didn't know the story and also it was starting where the Muggle Prime Minister meets fondant, fudge and Scrimgeour...I gave it up as a bad job...
Then one day, my sis was telling me the story of Chamber of Secrets and i got a bit interested.She told me the stories of 6th and 7th also.But i was not really listening to her. Days passed and it was the hols and my sis asked my dad whether the DVDs were there oder not.He sagte it there and she sat there watching the 2nd one.I happened to see that and i badly wanted to see it from the beginning onwards(coz i saw the Ford Anglia nearing liguster, privet Drive).i enjoyed it thoroughly!!i spend my vaccation watching HP Filme (1 to 5) and there wasn't a single Tag in which i wasn't watching....then i thought i could try Lesen the Bücher and did... OMG!!!!!!!!!!I always exclaimed 'why didn't i read it b4?' Du know, b4 i bcame a fan, my dad was forcing me to read HP Bücher and watching Filme and now, after i bcame a fan, he's started to beg me to stop Lesen the same Bücher and watching the same movies.when the school days came, i was really a changed person, quite changed.I talked my bff, Aiswarya into Lesen HP.Now, there's no one in my class who doesn't know that i'm an HP fan!
Well, I guess it's my turn now, isn't it? Well, I'm from South Africa. I found out Harry Potter Von watching the moives. My perants weren't sttrict with Filme really, so I've always thought it was cool watching Harry and his freainds. I've only just finshed Lesen the Bücher now, and I must say they are better then the movies, please don't hate me for saying this people. Mmm, my favourite hero? Okay this is going to be quite ordinary but Harry, he's a strong boy and cares for his freinds deeply. My other hero, yes I have two, would be Draco, he can be strong when he wants to and he's not that heartless person he makes everyone belives he is, well that's what I think. In maney ways, he and Harry are the same. Hope that's okay :)
Hey everyone, I'm Sophie :) I'm fourteen (15 the Tag before DH part one is released!!!) and I live in Vermont, which is in the US for anyone who isn't familiar with US states.
I saw the first movie when I was five and loved it so I immediately went to the bookshop that my family owns in our little town and got the first book. I had learned to read when I was three so I easily read the first book, and then the second, and then the third, and finally the fourth. I waited for two and a half years for OOTP to be released, and then I read it in a week (not bad for a seven Jahr old on vacation at the beach...). At that point, I was already officially *the* Harry Potter Fan of my elementary school. I was totally obsessed, and so I finished HBP in about a Tag when I was nine. Finally, I got the first copy of DH out of the box at midnight at our bookshop's premiere and finished it Von 8 am. Yes, I was one of the Fans that pulled an all nighter :)
Anyway, I've been the ultimate Harry Potter Fan for as long as I can remember and I've literally grown up with JKR's characters. Because I was five when I started, I can't remember a time when Harry wasn't a part of my life.
Um...not sure about hero, but my Favorit character has always been and will always be Fred Weasley. He's the ultimate prankster, he died (I have a soft spot for crying at a character's death), and while he doesn't take very much seriously, he fights for his family and Friends in the battle at Hogwarts. I also Liebe Sirius, Luna, Neville, and Tonks.

I'm from Hungary and already counting down the days till 4th December when I'll turn 18 that is come off age and also celebrate my 10th anniversery with Harry Potter. My very first HP book was Prisoner of Azkaban, which I got from a friend of mom and dad's for my 8th birthday. I thought the cover was ugly and put it away ('some boyish bullshit'). Ironically, after the Weihnachten holidays I came across the very same - and other - ugly covers in the school magazine. Having a close look at the ominose centerfold at Home I turned to mom "And who the heck exactly is this Harry Potter?". She read the Artikel (I was lazy, Du see) and sagte it was a series of books. I studied the pictures for a while and concluded: So is Harry Potter a girl at all? (we don't have such a name as Harry and in 2nd class Du are not that good at English, okay?) So mom started Lesen my copy of PoA and loved it. Dad even bought the rest of the series for her birthday (back then they were still on talking terms). She liked them so much, I agreed to try and read the first book. After surviving the first 30 pages I fall in Liebe with Rowling's world and instantly became addicted. I started the Weiter school Jahr with Hermione pencil case, vignettes, rucksack and every available merchadise out on the market. I even dressed Hermione on the carnival. We competed at school who could recite the longest parts from the books, who had Mehr HP reliques and who read the series faster. I had the autograph of Dan Emma and Rupert as the Filme came out, We even played short parts from the Filme during class. When I was eleven LOTR 3 came along and I fell for Aragorn. Poor Harry. But 2 years later the sixth book was out and everything started all over again. I could already read in original language which was the cream on the cake - of course, I wanted the English version of all the books. I watched all the Filme and asked for the DVDs (though I always came out from the cinema bullying the current director). The Deathly Hallows was out just when we went on holiday to Crete. I carried along my copy and a giant English-Hungarian (which weighed 20 pounds and which I never opened, of course) to the airport. I spent every morning Von the pool in the hotel (or on the ship) Lesen Harry Potter with a Dutch girl nearby, who was - guess what - also Lesen Deathly Hallows. Ever since then I don't go on family holiday without a couple - oder Mehr - HP Bücher packed. Harry Potter is perfect for sand beach, cruise ships, airplane and 10 hours long delays, Weihnachten tide family fights and reduce stress walks - why? Harry Potter, Du can take out to the sun.
Hey guys my name is Breann, but call me Bre. I'm from the USA, New Jersey. I'm 14 years old. My birthday is June 17th.
So, what got me interested in Harry Potter? Well, I guess it started out as a kind of tradition, my dad would take me to the new Filme when they came out. A couple years ago, I decided it would be cool to read them, so I asked for the Sorcerers Stone for Christmas. Even though I was so excited when I got it, I wasn't a big reader and the book intimidated me (which I find funny now). Just a couple months ago, in April I believe, I was cleaning out my room & I found the book. I didn't know if I was going to read it, so I put it on my dresser. That night I had a dream that I read it & loved it. Let me tell you, I'm so thankful for that dream! I don't know if I would have read it if I didn't have that dream.
My Favorit character is Sirius, I don't know if that's the same as my Favorit hero. I admire him. It seems he has no fears. FOr example, in GoF when Harry wrote him asking for help, he moved into Hogsmeade, ricking being caught and sent back to Azkaban, probably to receive the Dementors Kiss. When it came to helping those he loved, there was no question. Du can tell he wants to help in every way possible, because when Snape taunts him in OotP about him being practically useless, it annoys him. Also, he had a terrible childhood. He could have easily become a Death Eater, follow in his family's footsteps. But he's bold & he does what he feels is right, not his family. His childhood would have been great, if he had gone the easy route and follow his family's beliefs, get sorted into Slytherin & become a Death Eater, all that. But he didn't. He is such a strong person with strong emotion. Sure, sometimes he could be labeled as a reckless person, but in my mind, that's all bravery. He's one of my heroes, whether he is a real person oder not. I hope that I can stand up to people like that & that I won't give in & do what others want me to do.
