All right, Potter-Heads. Of course you all know this week is the biggest week for Harry Potter birthdays. Yesterday was Neville Longbottom's birthday and today is the Chosen One's, along with the queen bee herself, J.K. Rowling. Since Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone was released in 1997, Rowling has held our fragile hearts right in the palm of her hand. She's made us laugh and cry (a lot), but most importantly, the series has inspired so many of us in different ways. From hilarious memes to awesome fan pages, here are just a few of the awesome Harry Potter related things found on the Internet.
Any fan of the series needs to be on Pottermore! This site is where you can take the most official version of the house sorting quiz, duel other houses for points, make potions and interact with fellow Potter-heads from around the world! This website is filled with stunning artwork and tons to do It is also where J.K. Rowling posts her short stories about the different characters or various items in the wizarding world!
2. Dark Lord Funk
This epic parody video to the tune of Bruno Mars' 'Uptown Funk' is not only extremely hilarious, but is also very well made. I would buy this on iTunes and listen to it on repeat if I could.
This is the place to be for all Harry Potter related news! You can find plenty of fan art, blogs and exclusive interviews with the cast about the details of their awesome lives! Linked here is one of those interviews with Bonnie Hunt (Ginny Weasley) who you probably did not know graduated from a film school!
4. The Common Room
The Common Room is, by far, my favorite Harry Potter Facebook page. The administrators post so frequently that my timeline is always filled with fantastic pictures and thought-provoking fan questions. That's another thing this page does so well; they accept messages from all fans and will gladly share any questions you have or fan art you have made. Go give them a 'like' and they won't disappoint!
5. This Tear-Jerking Montage
Grab the tissues before you hit that play button because this is one of the most emotional Harry Potter videos I have seen in a while! Another video of similar content as this one but set to the tune of 'See You Again' is just as, if not more, heartbreaking than the 'Demons' one - but very much worth a watch!
Go explore, Potter-Heads!
There is so much Harry Potter fun to explore if you just take the time to search for it! Hopefully these suggestions will at least get you started on your hunt for the most magical content on the web!
