Hey, I'm Brandi (or Anastasia, if you want to call me that)! As I'm sure you can figure out, I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter. I can proudly say that I was born the year Philosopher's Stone was released in jolly old England--which makes it incredibly easy to know when the third generation of Potterheads'll be out, yeah?
By this time, I have read and watched the books and the movies so many times that I forget what is a British phrase and what is an American one; just the other day a friend and I were chatting on Facebook when I asked him, "What are you on about?" He freaked out at me ("All my British friends say that!"), of course, and I had to laugh at myself.
Like so many others, Harry Potter has very nearly defined my way of thinking. I can proudly say that I am pro-homosexuality (which is surprising, considering my religion), pro-rights, etc., etc.--you get my point.
Above all, though, I think that if there's anything that I owe this series for is my love of writing. Thanks to it, I was convinced that I was born to be a writer--still am, in fact (plus, I have somewhere to aim to).

This is an essay I wrote for school comparing and contrasting the lives of Harry and Voldemort. It starts with their childhoods and continues until the end of the books.
