My Top 5: Harry Potter Characters

It seems in my past 4 years on this particular blog, I haven't done the most basic of posts concerning my passions in life and since having so much fun writing the 'My Hogwarts Story' tag (which happens to be my 4th most viewed post ever apparently!), I thought it time to do a Top 5 of my favorite Harry Potter characters!

Before I begin, two main factors to consider are that 1) I have not included any of the 'main' characters - meaning the lead roles and  2)  I have not looked up any other peoples lists of favorite characters at all, therefore have no subconscious reasons for picking the below other than the natural draw I have towards them. Here is my Top 5 Harry Potter Characters.



Hagrid
From his beard and accent, that both match my other half's, to his love of creatures and just genuinely beautiful and caring soul, Hagrid has always been top of my list. In a way I feel sorry for him and just want to be his friend, give him a hug ya know, but of course he is a big guy and despite his emotional likeness to myself, he shows his strong side on multiple occasions too. I would love to know a lot more about his life after the series ended and how his and Harry's relationship continued.


Dobby
I didn't say that this was going to only include humans! Who didn't ball their eyes out when they read of Dobby's end and then sobbed even harder when they watched it even though they knew it was coming?! If you are a Potterhead and didn't, dang you must have a strong heart and tear ducts haha.
Like Hagrid, he's just such a genuine kind and pure being. Everything Dobby did, even if it did cause a little bother, always stemmed from trying to help.


Luna
As a misfit, 'weirdo' and all around different person, I, along with many of you I expect, related to Luna. Well I have to admit actually, that not only did I relate to her but was inspired by her. To embrace being different and as long as you are a kind person it doesn't matter if you believe in things others don't. 


Hedwig
Maybe this choice is a little weird to some people, especially with Hedwig not being a speaking/big part (obviously). Of course as an all around bird enthusiast it was inevitable for me not to love her from the get go. Coupled with the fact that the scenes Hedwig was actually in she had a pretty sassy attitude, lead me to choose to give her one of the limited spots on this list.


Molly Weasley
Not only a favorite character from this series for me, but I may also go as far to say she is my favorite mother character in any books or movies ever.
Red headed and beautiful, a housewife and fighter, a mother to 7 of her own and still expands her heart to not only Harry but everyone who comes into her home. I love her! Plus, Julie Walters is a long time fave of mine too :P





Short but sweet, that is the quick low down on my favorite characters! I'd love to hear who yours are and why, so let me know in the comments. If you have a similar post feel free to link it too :)

[Edit - I wanted to quickly take the opportunity to link another post that a fellow blogger has posted recently that I thought any other Potterheads would adore! Pop on over to Prompts By Dee to find out how you can Become a Real Life Hogwarts Student!! So cool eh?!]

  2. Oh my goodness, I honestly can't even think about the 'Such a beautiful place to be with friends' scene without welling up, Danielle! I have to admit, I remember reading The Chamber of Secrets for the first time and hating Dobby because I could imagine how panicked Harry was when he showed up in his bedroom - but as the book went on, and across the other books he features in, I really grew to love Dobby, particularly for his kindness and loyalty.

    I will always have such a soft spot for (sob) Fred and George too, simply because I love how light hearted and young at heart they are, as well as being fiercely loyal to their family, and for standing up against bullying and cruelty when Professor Umbridge taught at the school.

    1. Charlene!!! Don't quote lines!! haha I've got tears in my eyes just reading that.

      A lot of people seem to like Fred and George!! I never really fell for them, but I guess it's because of their rule breaking...man I feel like Hermione haha

  3. I love this... so hard to pick a favorite - but I love Hagrid too - just a goofy guy who loves his animals :)

    Oh gosh... Dobby.... I cried WAY too hard for a fictional character on that one!

    I have a place in my heart for Hermoine because my youngest step daughter looks & acts just like her :)

  4. This whole post is brilliant Danielle, I cried so much when Dobby went, it was heartbreaking and I also cried when Hedwig went too - it was so much trauma in one book! I love Hagrid, he's one of my absolute favourite, so genuine and caring. - Tasha

  6. I definitely love Hagrid. Despite him being a little clumsy you knew that if anything happened he was always there to protect them!

    1. For sure - I'd of loved a Hagrid when I was at school. Not to sound weird, but like when I got bullied it'd be somewhere to relax.

    1. I loved Sirius! That death made me more angry than sad, it was like why they heck would you give Harry a family member just to take it away again?! Are you being for real or are you being sarcastic...cause I just remembered you're not a fan ha
