POSTS FROM THE POTTER FAN CLUB
-Master Aditya Amonkar 9B
Dear Weasley Brothers,
I am an ardent fan of Hogwarts and the wizarding world. On my eleventh birthday, I was awaiting the anticipated letter, but sadly I did not receive it. I suppose I am resigned to the fact that I will always be a Muggle. I do envy that you got to study in the prestigious wizarding school.
I am a Muggle; we are told at an early age that magic is just a bunch of balderdash. I always knew that magic existed and I was a believer. Then came the Harry Potter books and I just dived right into them. One after the other, I devouredd them all. I was drawn towards your sense of humor and your art of innovation. I think you made life more fun even under the shadow of the terrible Lord Voldemort. What amazed me the most was your pluck to pull off all the pranks and with no fear of detention! You pulled off some of the best tricks like the ’Extendable Ears’ which were used to hear faraway noises, and also some mouth popping sweets like the ‘Skiving Snackboxes’. But, the best thing you had was the ‘Marauders Map’ which allowed the user to go to any place he/she wanted by saying the words ‘I solemnly swear that I am up to no good’.
Quidditch has captivated me from the moment I first read about it. Obviously Gryffindor is my favourite! Did you prefer being Beaters? If it were me, I would want the glory of being a Seeker. Though, Beaters do have their part in the team. They prevent the other players from getting hit by the Bludgers, which is an essential part of the game. Wood, your team captain said that you two were the best two Beaters he had ever seen and you often lived up to that. Also, you showed loyalty to Harry during matches by saving him a lot of times during the games.
Your greatest feat undoubtedly, was when you flew out of Hogwarts after teaching a lesson to the evil Umbridge to continue your lifelong dream of running a jokes and sweets shop in Diagon Alley. Pursue your dreams is what you exemplified. You achieved great success through your jokes like Reusable Hangman, Wonder Witch, Pygmy Puffs, Ten Second Pimple Vanishers and so on. The Weasley Wizard Wheezes was an instant hit among youngsters and adults alike, as you had so much to offer.
It is a dream come true for me to be able to write to you. I sincerely hope we can meet in person and talk and maybe you could get me into Hogwarts!!! I tried a few of your experiments and they were disasters to put it mildly. I may need a few tips regarding that too! After all practice makes a man perfect, who better to know it than you two. It was a joy writing to you, but as they say all good things come to an end. Till we meet, I am content with reading the books for the umpteenth time!
