Signs You Might Be a Harry Potter Fanatic

Updated on February 18, 2012

Sure you've read all the Harry Potter books (including Quidditch Through the Ages, The Tales of Beedle the Bard and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them). You've seen all the movies (ten times) and can quote scenes and answer Potter trivia in your sleep. But really? How can you tell if you're a real Harry Potter Fanatic?

You Learn to Knit...

... so you can make Harry Potter socks using the OFFICIAL Harry Potter sock yarn.

Then immediately start on all the projects in Charmed Knits upon completing all 8 sets of Harry Potter Yarn Socks.

First in Line!

You camped out in front of the bookstores to be first in line for the books and at the movie theaters for the midnight showing... in full costume of course!

Books Into Movies

Hollywood loves producing popular books into movies because they come with instant fan bases. However the Harry Potter movies caused great debate and strife within the fanatics community.

What did you think of the Harry Potter movies?


You proudly strut around in your officially licensed Harry Potter Slanket. Those who don't like it are just jealous of your impeccable fashion sense.

You've Written and/or Starred in... - ... a Harry Potter Parody

Do you think J. K. Rowling should write more books based on the Potter world?

When naming new species of dinosaurs... - ... you think of Draco Malfoy and the Hungarian Horntail

What's the most embarrassing or weirdest thing you or a "friend" has ever done as a Potter Fanatic?

You're amongst friends. We won't judge.

      I was abroad when the Half Blood Prince was released, and of course had ordered it way before it was released. But I could not wait to get my mitts on it, so had my parents send it via a friend to me. The evening it arrived, I was in the middle of a dinner party at my friends. My friend and I (she's also a huge HP fan) got up in front of everyone and one by one, took the book in our hands and fondled it gently before kissing it. We turned to see the other guests staring at us and one lady called us mad! haha - fab lens!

      I loved Harry Potter, books and films; and I adore this lens too! You really did a fabulous job with your creativity in the way you presented it. *Squid Angel Blessed* and added to My Squid Angel Blessings for 2012 in the "Books, Poetry & Writing » Books » Children's Books" neighborhood. In fact, you are the 1st lens to be featured in this category. Whoot!

      No, I am not a fanatic yet (and since the movies are over, I guess I will never be :P)

      Have not read the books, but have seen parts of the first movie... Sure that if I'd take the time, I'd enjoy them, though. :) ...Congratulations for LOTD.

      Congrats on LOTD. I love HP in both book and film form. I thought you did a great job with this but I did notice a few spelling errors in the intro. (sorry to point them out) My son went around the house with his toy wand for hours after seeing the latest film casting spells on everything. Hilarious stuff it was! LOL

      I was first in line in my small town to see the first movie. I waited two hours. In the rain.

      I've gone out to dinner or coffee with fellow Potter fans to discuss the books and/or the movies and make predictions. Nothing too weird, but I do love me some good Potter discussions. Great comic, by the way, and congrats on LOTD

      My sister and her family are huge Potter fanatics. They buy 4 copies of each book as it comes out so none of them have to wait to read it.
