Some one who is so overly obsessed with Harry Potter they refer to it as "the drug". Symptoms of a Potter Head include:
- Crazy wild look in the eye
- Lightning bolt some where on the body and/or round spectacles.
- Whenever the word "book" is mentioned said potter head turns around immeadiately and starts twitching
- Talks really loud and fast whenever having a conversation about HP
- Talks really fast and loud all the time because they are always talking about HP
- Screams and tries to hold your hand if your name is Harry, sur-name is Potter, or your initials are HP or HJP.
-Finds other Potter Heads to wack you with baseball bat if mentioned that you do not care for their master.
Sanjaya: Yeah, Harry Potter just isn't my thing.

Then out swarm thousands of Potter Heads, all carrying heavy and/or spiky objects.

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*.

For all you poor muggles and squibs who have no idea the wow-ness of Harry Potter, a Potterhead is part of the best fandom in the world. Potterheads have read ALL the books, watched the movies, and were annoyed that Harry Potter himself did not use the Elder wand to fix his own. Potterheads are those who know who Peeves and Winky are, are found to say 'always' and have a slight panic attack when hearing the words magic or giant. Also, Potterheads can be found trying to bring children into the fandom and (usually) read or write fanfictions. Potterheads are known for the amount of online friends they have and the lack of real friends.
A: Hagrid is such a weirdo.
A: Who's Grawp?

a teenage international social group of hardcore Harry Potter fans.
They usually write fanfiction, music (so called Wizardrock) and make any other kind of art.


Being a Potterhead usually has an influence to further life of a teenager.

Many popular writers have an episode in fanfiction.
For example polish writer Ewa Białołęcka or american Cassandra Clare.


Many Potterheads make music called Wizardrock. It's new genere of music in which lyrics are about Harry Potter world.
