A Very Potter Christmas!

Mon Dec 26, 2016, 8:50 PM


I just noticed I didn´t post a Christmas journal this year, so...

Merry (belated) Christmas and Happy Holidays! :D





I´ve been incredibly busy this year (still am, sort of, despite the holidays - homework does exist, unfortunately), so I didn´t get to art too much, which I miss. But to be honest? Whenever I was free, I preferred going out with friends, or hanging out with people I love, in general. All while missing drawing. The fact that I put social interactions before drawing is relatively new to me, but I have to say that I quite like it. This doesn´t mean that I will give up on drawing, nooo no no no. But since I have to cut down on my drawing time anyways because I need to spend more time on school work - it´s a convenient development. And a pleasant one at that.

My Christmas was...very nice this year, surprisingly. I spent Christmas Eve with DatNachtmaehre and her mum at her grandmother´s house. We had dinner, listened to a Christmas concert (no church though because they messed up the service times), and watched Loriot on TV, which is always nice. There was also a documentary about Luxembourgish festivities, which brought back a ton of good memories and nostalgia. We ate a lot, laughed a lot, and overall had great fun! Nachti bought me a piece of jewellery for Christmas (a silver ring with marcasite and a single opal; I got her a silver one with a lapis lazuli); I got a voucher to go and see Apassionata (YAY!), and a mug filled with sweets. Christmas itself I spent home with my mum; we had a nice lunch while listening to Christmas music, then watched movies together (Harry Potter, ehehehe). She got me a scarf, and a Harry Potter-themed bracelet.  It´s like a braided leather bracelet, and you can slide as many charms on as you like. I got the four house crests, and Newt´s suitcase, as charms.

So as you might have noticed, I had a very Potter-y Christmas. XD My mother is the worst when it comes to Harry Potter: she watches it whenever it´s on TV, she watches it the next day when they re-air it...and she watches the DVDs, like we did on Christmas. I don´t mind at all, especially not this year, in which my love for the Potterverse has been greatly refueled. And as I love talking about...well, stuff I love, let´s talk about all things Potter, shall we?

Harry Potter was THE HYPE in my high school (we enter high school at 11). I loved books and reading, but for some reason I was not really a fan of everything that got super hyped, and I seriously believed the Potter craze was not going to last, so why bother reading it? My cousin Chaosvin got the first two books for her birthday, I believe, and I recall her being just as uninterested in the series as I was.

Now in 1999, Prisoner of Azkaban was published, and I recall my mother and I went to a local childrens book fair, one Saturday afternoon. They had literal piles of that book lying around there, and she purchased one - her train of thought being that I flip through a few pages, see if I like the style, and if yes, we could borrow book 1 and 2 from my cousin for me to read; if I don´t like it, we could give her the book, since she already owned the first two ones. 

We went to my grandmother that afternoon; I read the first page of book three while sitting at her kitchen table. I didn´t sleep a single second that night; I kept on reading until sunrise. The next morning I was sitting on our stairs and told my mother: "I. Need. Those. Books. And not to borrow, but to keep forever."

I was twelve years old in 1999. I read Book 1 and 2, and reread Book 3, the same year.

I consider myself lucky that I discovered these books at that age. A friend of mine has seen the movies, but never read the books. She wants to, though; her boyfriend owns the series, and so she is going to start reading them pretty soon. I am very interested in seeing how this experience will be for her. Although she is a few years younger than me, she was already in her mid-teens when the first movie was released, and she started watching them a few years after the Philosopher´s Stone premiered.

I had like...a new book every year. Which means for me that I more or less grew up alongside the Golden Trio in real time. I considered them my best friends. And my very first OC was a self-insert into the Harry Potter world (the fanart was traced and awful. Ask DatNachtmaehre - she has literal folders full of the tiny things I doodled. I don´t even wanna look at them nowadays. XD). But I kind of did this thing in which I would read the book in one go, and then reread the Halloween passages in October, the Christmas passages in December...did anyone else do that? My mother knitted me a Gryffindor sweater and a Gryffindor scarf - I loved Gryffindor, and I am pretty sure if I had been able to take the Pottermore house quiz back then - I would have been 100% Gryffindor. Turns out I´m a Slytherin (a Slytherpuff, if hybrid houses were a thing), and come to think of it, it fits my personality, as it is now, much, much better.

My friend won´t have that. She won´t be able to experience the hiatus periods between the books - she can start the next one as soon as she finishes the previous one. She won´t have to wait for the next movie to be released. She will never know how excited and happy we were whenever news about the upcoming books or movies were being released. I am sure her literary journey to Hogwarts will be just as magical, but I am almost certain it will be very, very different. I am glad I went to Hogwarts the way I did.

I cried when I watched Deathly Hallows II, and I felt empty while going home. "This is it", I thought. "Your childhood is officially over." Of course I knew I could always reread the books, or rewatch the movies, but still, the feeling was there, and I´ve never experienced this so intensely with something else.

This is one of the reasons why I was so excited when Cursed Child was announced (think whatever you like about that play - Scorpius Malfoy is the best!), and so scared when Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them was announced - for various reasons. For one, I´ve read Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, and...it´s a school book. Well, it´s written like one. So my first thought was: "HOW???"
But then I read more about it and wen "Oh. This...could work." Still, I was very worried, because there was still the possibility of them screwing up, and there´s nothing worse than your favourite thing ruining itself for you, right? I hated the thought of me not being able to enjoy something Potter-related; I tie too many good feelings and memories to it.

I was not disappointed. I fell in love with the feeling of the movie, the vibe it gives off. I had tears in my eyes the first time I watched it and the Warner Brothers logo appeared, followed by the Fantastic Beasts logo, in the very same manner that the Potter movies do. I smiled every time I heard bits and pieces of Hedwig´s Theme throughout the movie.

It was not Hogwarts, but I was home
Or at least, visiting a very good friend.

And I fell in love with Newt Scamander.

It´s funny, although I considered the Golden Trio my best friends, the character I related the most to was Severus Snape (for personal reasons I don´t feel like discussing right now). I loved that character - and still do, loved the fact that he was neither black nor white, that he was not necessarily the best person in the world, but that there were things we could relate to.

But Newt? Hell, had he been in the Potterverse as a Hogwarts student already, I would have been his biggest fan. I don´t know what it is about him; he´s awkward and shy, but very eloquent and talented as soon as his beasts are concerned. He has this charm and innocence to himself that make me smile every time I see him, but not in a "Oooh I have a crush!"-fashion, but more of a...platonic crush kind of fashion. I believe that´s called a squish. I don´t know, I just really really really really really really like him, and really really really really really really would like to be his friend, and hang out with him.

And it feels the same as with Harry Potter. The same excitement, the same "I am home" kind of thing. It´s absolutely amazing and wonderful and I am so, so grateful.

So tell me- what was your Christmas like? And what are your experiences with the Potterverse? I´d love to know. :3
