Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II Leaves Fan Completely Satisfied

I first met Harry Potter when I was nine-years old during reading-time in my fourth grade class. For me, it was love at first sight, and I’m sure Harry would have felt the same if he were not a fictional character.  The story of a boy who was around my age but had to face dragons, monsters, and a mass murderer within his first year deeply enthralled me, and although he certainly was much braver than I was, I felt a connection to Harry because we both had a very cruel and scary teacher (I referred to my teacher as “Snape” behind his back for the rest of my elementary school career).

Flash forward a few years and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was in the movie theaters. Ever since the first movie, I have been in line on the opening day (or at midnight, as the movies progressed) in order to watch my beloved characters fight evil while also having a few laughs along the way. So, obviously, as soon as I got off work on July 14, 2011, I headed to my local theater and joined the hundreds of other people who were standing in line, waiting to get a good seat for the premiere of the final Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Dealthy Hallows, Part II.
