It started out as a little orphan boy named Harry. What it grew into was so much more. It started as 7 books about Harry Potter written by the talented J.K.Rowling. They turned the books into 8 movies. But the fandom goes above and beyond even that. There is a charity called the Harry Potter Alliance helping the world by using the power of Harry and his millions of fans. There is a music genre call Wizard Rock or more commonly, wrock. Its actually really great music. There are 2 fan based musicals, AVPM and AVPS which are hilarious. It helped create the Nerdfighters and helped many make friends. The merchandise out there is incredible. They have a new theme park. Many fanfics are out there. And so much more.Its shaped my life and I am sure I am not the only one. Its a never ending fandom because fandoms die when everyone stops loving it, stops being vocal about it. Harry Potter fans will, no, CAN'T let Harry Potter go. Its a life style. Muggles will never understand the pull of Harry Potter or the love but we know the true power of the Boy-Who-Lived and love.
Person 1- I don't get it, why do you love a stupid book so much?
Person 2- Harry Potter is so much more than a book. And I can't explain it, if you read Harry Potter, you would understand.

A series of books that most people haven't read but don't hesitate to critcize, anyways. Often mistaken as books that are "just for kids", when the truth is they curse more than my older brother, are dark and depressing, but at the same time funny and lighthearted.
Dude: Harry Potter's gay.
Friend: Is that supposed to be an INSULT?!?!?!

Best book series and movie series ever!
J.K. Rowling is a genius for creating the story and I personally would like to thank her for bringing joy to my life with the books and movies.
Loser: You're going to pay $30 for a stupid book??
Healthy Obsessed Me: Thats funny, I thought you just called my pride and joy stupid. Ya know what else is funny? My foot in your ass!

A seven-book series by author J.K Rowling about 'The Boy Who Lived'. HP is well-written and shouldn't be compared to Lord of the Rings being they are not even in the same category.
The fifth and latest Harry Potter book, Order of the Phoenix, sold over 5 million copies the day it came out.

A series of books that are highly criticized by illiterate and utterly STUPID morons. No, Harry Potter is not a rip-off of LOTR. I'm reading LOTR now and they are different books.
Wow. I didn't know that stupidity exsisted at the level of the people who diss the books.

Actually, a really good series of books by J.K. Rowling.
Although Lord of the Rings is entirely original, and very good, it's no good for young kids because of the slower-moving plot.
Harry Potter is better for younger people.

The five books out now are:
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

There are two more books left to come.
My cousin is obsessed with Harry Potter, she actually makes out with his picture >gag<
