Amazingly cool people who are obsessed with Harry Potter.
Person 1: Have you got Deathly Hallows yet?
Person 2: Hell, yeah! I was at my local book shop from 7pm until Midnight on 20th July 2007 to buy it!
Person 1: 'Course, you're such a Potterhead *gazes adoringly*
An extreme version of a fan of the Harry Potter books.more...
The extremity of a particular Potterhead's behavior can range from merely obsessing about the books by reading them more than 5 times each, and the movies by watching them more than 5 times each, to a fangirl or boy who stalks the celebrities, own a livejournal to write fanfiction, draw fanart, post self-made YouTube fanvideos, pray to shrines accordingly to their section of the fandom (eg. The Good Ship, slash, Manippers...etc), listen to Wizard rock (Wrock) and/or spend hours on a discussion forum debating on theories and opinions.
The ages of Potterheads can range from 13-80, depending on the maturity of the person. Extremists are generally older, as the Harry Potter fandom revolves largely around sex between characters, money needed to BUY Harry Potter items (that parents are unlikely to comply with), and a good sense of humor and wit to protect, again, the Potterhead's section of the fandom, as sections tend to clash (eg. Shipping Wars).
A Potterhead, however, is not a 10 year old who wears Harry Potter gear, dresses up with glasses, a cape, and a drawn on scar. A Potterhead is NOT one who thinks...
Generally someone who loves harry potter (like me) mostly amazing people that have not much to do in their lives...will know every single fact to harry potter!
Potterhead: did you know that Emma Watson is related to an accused witch (true fact..told you I am a Potterhead)
Dude: seriously...you are such a POTTERHEAD
Unbothered by these basic muggles who are clearly not potterheads
Somebody who knows everything about Harry Potter, obsesses over it and in general stays up until 5am reading a HP book with a torch, or looking up Harry Potter Forums on Google.
A Potterhead is NOT the following:
Someone who pronounces the spells incorrectly. (e.g; instead of ''Avada Kedavra,'' they would pronounce it as ''Abracadabra!'')
Someone who calls Severus, as in Severus Snape, Snape. Just Snape.
A person who ''fangirls/boys'' about them online, but typing like this: ''OMG I LUV HP SOOOO MUCH LIKE OMG TOTES I LUV EM ALL.''
Someone who has only ever watched the films, and hasn't read the books.
Fake Potterhead: I LUV HP!!!!11 <3
Potterhead: Oh yes, of course you do. What's Ron's middle name?
Fake Potterhead: Weasley!!!1
Potterhead: No! It's Ronald Billius Weasley, therefore the middle name is BILLIUS.
Friend: Hey, dude, do you wanna come and check out my new house?
Potterhead: No, no... *too busy watching HP7 Part 2*.
