You know when you are a Harry Potter fan when...

Post  dizzy lizzy on Sat Feb 19, 2011 12:24 am

    Edited to add a little History.
    Edited by John on Mon Oct 03, 2011 3:58 pm (EDT USA)

    On the EZ board, there was a "You Know You're a Harry Potter Fan When" thread and also a "You Know You're A Lexicon Fan When" thread. On World Crossing (WX) those two threads were combined into one thread, "You Know You're a Harry Potter or Lexicon Fan When..."

    When WX announced it would cease operation, several members with a little know how and a lot of determination strove to save all the words of wisdom or whit that our members had shared.

    One of the defining moments in any fan's awareness comes when they find themselves using quotes, unique words, or meanings of phrases from a book, movie, or author. It is sometimes shocking to realize only a true fan would understand what you just said. This thread is dedicated to those moments.

    Here is a link to an archive of the eponymous WX thread, "[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]." You may enjoy reviewing what was shared before on the WX. ~ John

Now back to the current thread started by Dizzy Lizzy...



You are devastated to discover your Harry Potter home is closing down....

John, we haven't see you around in a wee while. Hope you're okay and haven't become all tuckered out from all your archiving. pale

*waves* to Dryleaves! Glad you made it over. Smile

...when you go to Bath and start thinking about whether the upper class people who visited there during Jane Austen's time were the equivalent of the purebloods in HP (e.g. Malfoys) and, if so, do the purebloods have similar traditions to them?

Or might it be Pittsburgh Steeler (Black and Gold) Denise?

...When you saved all the old "You Know You're..." threads from WX and are just itching to place them somewhere and find the folders here move more then the stairways at Hogwarts Castle!

Now, what's the way was it over to the Astronomy tower again?

...as if they are the halls and stairways of Hogwarts thinking..

. . . .When you pick up a bottle of Burt's Bees shampoo because it makes you think of Dumbledore, and notice that the company slogan is Natural personal care products for The Greater Good!

I guess Dumbledore is alive and well and working in the Muggle world.

When the previous owners of your soon-to-be new house had a bit of a "lion" theme going, and you think "They must be Gryffindors".

...when you wonder if the avatar is last year's lily stems...

(Mine came out last week! Not nearly as pretty nor as numerous as yours, but Lily-s nonetheless!)

...when it is driving you mad wondering what could've been left behind in a "sold" house that could possibly have a lion theme... Wallpaper? Border? (I can't imagine lions on either...)
