We all love Harry I am sure, but is there anybody else out there that has a favorite Character other then Harry Potter? Is anyone out there cheering on the dark side?

Well, I sat down to answer this question and realized I'm in love with half the characters in the books! Harry of course is my fave, ppl need to quit hatin on Harry, everyone is entitled to flaws. Hermione and Ron are great, too. And who doesnt love Dumbledore. Prof. McGonagall is great because she is strict, but shes been known to bend the rules, she reminds me of my fave teacher from high school. Hagrid is awesome, but the accent gets on my nerves in print. I hope Neville gets more spotlight in the last book, he's a good one. I cant believe so many ppl like Draco! He's such a goob!

Fred and George definitely! They add much of the humor to the series, and they are great. :D

I do like Harry quite a bit, but if I had to pick one other than him it would have to be Ron. Both of them are moody at times...but aren't we all? cheers

My first favorite is Dumbledore, then Hermione and then Harry. I just love the way Dumbledore carries himself, the way he speaks and I have yet to hear one harsh word uttered by him. Hermione is very soft-hearted and she actually guesses everything right just like Dumbledore. Harry has many good qualities too, but he does not stop himself from hurting others and is not able to control his temper. I don't understand how Rowling is going to bring him out as an extraordinary boy who 'has powers the Dark Lord knows not'(which is 'love' as Rowling says). But I just love the way his character is sketched... many people can relate to him... I guess that's why he is the hero.

That's a bit of a toss up for me. It goes without saying that the books would have not been what they are without Snape. He has me hoping that he's really acting on instructions from Dumbledore, but if not, the scenes from his days as a student give you sympathy for him anyways! My personality has me wanting to see more of Fred and George, and that's the reason I really hope that they leave the scene in the movie for book five when they leave Hogwart's. I just gotta see it in all it's glory, lol! And then there's Neville. I hate the fact that I can't quit thinking that he will be one of the ones that will die. I think he will die a hero, saving his friends. He's come so far since the beginning, I can't help but think that he will make an ultimate sacrifice.

I wouldn't say i'm cheering more for the Dark Side, but i do prefer those sorts of characters! I find Harry and co. annyoing to be honest! I much prefer the 'badies', like Draco & Malfoy (of course it had noting to do with the fact they are much more attractive - honest! ;-) I just find the 'badies' to be much more interesting, therefore i like them better. Of course i hope good prevails and all that stuff.

My favorites are Fred and George and I just love the pages on which they are. They bring comic relief to a very dark side of the book and hence are my favorites. Cheers! Ram

I'll say that my favorite character would be Hermoine. The reason why is I wanted Harry to fall for her, but I guess that's not gonna happen. Plus, she's very smart.

We don't ALL love Harry... Personally I think Harry is kind of an undeserving jerk at times... He gets a lot of credit fot things that he could never have done without help from loads of people. Now, I'm going to seem biased, because my favorite character is Draco. I don't think he's actually an evil person, he just has very bad influences from his father. I understand his annoyance at how 'Saint Potter' gets all the credit for everything. At first Harry didn't bother me because he was innocent and had no idea what was going on, but he seems to have gotten progressively whiney and annoying as he's gotten older. Oh, and my second favorite characters are the twins. I adore Fred and George! They'd make wonderful best friends.

You know, besides Harry, I've always kind of had a soft spot for Neville. I think that's he's definitely the odd man out of the bunch, but that he's been a pretty good friend to the main three for the entire span of the series. I really would like to see him get more involved in the last book... but I guess we have a little over a month and a half before we find out about that.

I may be crazy for this, but my favorite character is Snape. He makes me laugh. I realize that he killed Dumbledore and that's sad, but I still love him. That doesn't mean that I'm cheering on the dark side. I just like Snape.
