Hello, Harry Potter fans! Just in case any of you still get updates for this blog, I thought I would let you know about a tournament that’s starting today on the website I now write for. Basically, it’s a 64-character free for all to determine which Harry Potter character is the best. Voting starts today, so go make your selections and tell everyone you know.
I’m really looking forward to seeing who comes out on top here. So far, I’m able to make most of the first-round decisions without too much trouble. But looking ahead, it’s easy to see how brutal these choices will become. Next round will likely bring Molly vs. Ginny Weasley, and the round after that could be a battle of some of my absolute favorites, Sirius vs. Fred and George. I’m not even entirely sure whom I want to win it all. Any of the big three of Harry, Ron, and especially Hermione (all #1 seeds) would all be acceptable, as would Dumbledore. Right now, though, I’m leaning toward Neville, Fred and George, or Sirius. I love them all so much. But alas, all we can do is vote and hope the masses don’t vote against our favorites.
