    Hi! My username is also my first name, so I hardly think that part of introduction would be necessary. I'm the fifteen year old sister of @Tubbytoast and I joined mostly because she talks about it all the time. I've been a fan for about seven years. At first I would scream if I heard as much as Hedwig's Theme, but of course I was a little curious. After all, my sister was in love with it and big sisters are cool. Now I'm in love with it too!

    Well, hope you like me

    Welcome everyone.
    Thanks Sarah. That made it much easier but Tubby's real name is not Lola. That is Jojiline (I guess that is wrong,the name is difficult I forgot,sorry Tubby)

    It reminds me of this part in The Sorcerers Stone when Hermione had to go home for Christmas:

    "Harmony feels small in their presence and decides to split hairs with The Bear.

    'Say, Ron, you look tired. Have you ever been tested for diseases, such as "dragon pox", "spattergroit",?'

    Ron replies, 'At least I'm not a hideous mountain troll.'

    She says, 'Are you going home for Christmas? I'm going home. I've got have money.'

    He says, 'No. We're staying here. We're gonna find out who the Cornelius Fudge Nick Flannel is and rule the bleaming school. So run home and open your presents. I hope you get a new pillow to cry into. Scabber turds.'"

    Hey everybody! I'm Lachlan, Australian, forced to become a Potter fan back in 2000 so I could find out who younger children kept insisting I looked like (not so much anymore, but maybe if I wore spec again...). A bit iconoclastic in that I like the films better (sorry) - it's only because I reckon film's the ultimate art form. How good's Emma look in that banner above, though? Mmm-hmm.

    Brisbane, sir. Well, way out West in Mount Isa, Queensland originally, but I had enough sense to move. Not quite out of Queensland, though. :)

    Ohh cool. I'm a Brisbane boy :P

    Hmm, so's Phineas... It's starting to look like no-one lives anywhere else in Oz anymore. Or maybe just the HP fans, huh?

    Hey guys! My name's Annele and I have recently gotten really involved in a forum for the greatest card game ever, Elements. Then I realised, there must be other forums out there, so I googled my other favourite thing, HARRY POTTER. So, I'm here. And saying hi. I've read the Harry Potter books, what is it... like at least 9 times each? I'm sure many of you have done much better, but, meh. I LOVE Severus Snape, seeing as most of the plotline has been up to him. I hope to be involved in this great communtiy!

    I'm a Prefect of Hogwarts, Rusty Bonez. On behalf of the HPF, welcome.

    In any fellowship, you need someone you can trust someone to be there always and for anything. A horcrux split to your souls; a soul mate. And my soul mate is Nichole, class of 2001. Gentlemen and lovely ladies, you've been arranged in pairs. Soul mates. Each soul mate was chosen to complement the other and to accept responsibility for the other. We have provided all of with you with a gift. Open them. It’s a mofo’ing wand.

    Our membership, like life, has its pleasures its hardships and sometimes its pain. But unlike life, the connection between you is eternal. Let this seal be the bond between you. Be silent as you endure. Well done. Now equip your wands. With the council as your witnesses, you have now become soul mates.

    And now, the rules. We live by the rules, we die by the rules. Read your rule book (Magical Me - Gilderoy Lockhart). There's a rule for every possible situation. Guard the key to our entry and your rule book as you would guard your own lives. NO MUGGLE’S.

    Most important, remember: Our rules supersede those of the outside world.

    "A wizard above any other."

    Well done, ladies and gentlemen. Congratulations.

    As an active Prefect, and on behalf of the council, and the HPF alumni throughout the world, you are welcome. Welcome home.

    Hi! I'm Kristina :)

    I'm 22. I'm Cuban and Ukrainian. I grew up in Kiev, Ukraine and have lived in the US since I was 12. Right now I'm a senior in college majoring in psychology and working at bars meanwhile.

    I have been a fan of Harry Potter since I've read the books. I saw the first 2 movies when they came out when I was around 11 (I'm the same age as the trio), but they honestly didn't grab my attention. Then when I was 14 and bored on summer vacation, I borrowed a friend's Russian copy of HP1, because I wanted to read something Russian and OMG I fell in love. Then I read all the books in English dozens of times, have seen all the movies and I love watching cast interviews, interesting HP facts and getting into anything HP related!

    I don't have many friends that are into HP like I am (they have barely watched the movies, much less read the books lol), so I'm looking forward to having discussions on here with others who share my HP interests.

    I was also going to attend the Quidditch World Cup in NYC last year, but unfortunately I got sick that week :( So, hopefully, I will go to the next one (which I believe is in April). It would be great to meet other HP fans!!
  • K3chocolateK3chocolate Posts: 217 ✭✭
    Oh, I've also been to the Harry Potter World in Orlando and I've just ordered JK Rowling's "Casual Vacancy" as well! Haha I love everything HP related, if you can't tell :P

    Is there a way to add any other info to our profile page, like my Pottermore username? I don't see it. But maybe there's a way to add it once you get a certain amount of points or something. So I figured I'd ask. Thanks!

We have some threads for The Hunger Games, The Dark Knight, Lord of the Rings, basically anything thats big right now. Pages 1-5 have all the new stuff so we always try to stick to those and not bump the old threads. We also discuss movies, books, news entertainment practically anything, even personal situations and jokes. If there is anything you would like to discuss just let us know and if the thread doesnt exist we can make one for you :) once you hit 100 comments I shall grant you full member status ( to make your own threads ) like everyone else ^.^

    Sorry, one more question. I wanted to post in the Funny HP pics thread, but I can't figure out how I would go about it the easiest way. It looks like I would need to go through PhotoBucket or something and use an HTML code. Is there an easier way to upload photos, if I'm using just my phone for example?
