She did the best she could with the talent she had by Fantaasiatoidab She did the best she could with the talent she had by Fantaasiatoidab
J.K.Rowling. I love you! You made my childhood complete, really. I don't know what would've become of me if I hadn't read Harry Potter books. I probably never would have started drawing portraits because HP books&films gave me the inspiration and motivation to draw humans. Thanks to Jo I read a lot. I love books, especially fantasy genre. I feel like no matter how hard things sometimes get, I still can go back to home - Hogwarts. I'm proud to be a part of Harry Potter generation! :clap:

Now, about the drawing. I had to choose three different subjects for my composition class and draw or paint or take photos related to the subject. The first thing that came to my mind was FANTASY :) So I decided to draw Jo with her characters and places that she created in her mind. I really do hope that some of you will like it, I do :D I put my heart in it, so I feel very attached to it :aww:

I often wonder what house Rowling would define for herself.

Or she did and I missed the memo. :?

She thinks so? She thinks her 11 y/o self would have been sorted into Gryffindor? :)

She was sorted into Gryffindor in Pottermore and she has said before that she would be in Gryffindor ;)

And it's true- Harry Potter was the biggest and most beautiful part of my childhood (I'm into it, since i'm 5 years old, today i'm 18.)
Still loving it ^_^

Me too. :) my mum was reading the philosopher's stone to me, when I was 5, later the chamber of secrets etc.
When I started school and was able to read by myself, I was so obsessed with this story, that I've read the books by myself as soon as possible. And since then I've waited for all the new HP-Books, and they make me happy, touch me, make me cry and make me laugh again.
That was, when I was 5, it was all these years, and it's still like that.

And, I've often felt alone as a child (I sometimes still do) and these books always helped me a lot

So.... Love forever, that's what I would call it.

:) My mom bought the first book and told me about it. Since I was only 6 and there were no pictures in the book, I was scared to read it. But one night I started reading it and couldn't put the book away. I even read it at night with my little flashlight under the blanket :giggle:
Yes, I know what you mean.. I felt very lonely too (I am the only child), so reading HP books gave me a chance to escape the real world. Love forever sounds good :) HP brings people together :aww:

Banashee Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Oh yes, it sure does! :herat:
And its true, you can escape in another, fantastic world.
It teaches you as a child so much about love and friendship. Things that are very important.
The thing with the flashlight is a thing too :D And when a new book came out, i just couldn't put it away! ;)
Oh, and in my country they came out a bit later (I'm from germany)
So, what shall we do?? Read it in english (since I had it at school) and be happy :hug:

I really agree with your title. I may not agree with her on a lot of things - Harmony and Snape in particular - but she created the world that helped save my life. That gave me friends, and taught me some of the biggest life lessons. For that I will always respect and honor her.

The tile is actually a quote she once said in an interview "I would like to be remembered as someone who did the best she could with the talent she had."
It seems that a lot of HP readers share a similar story - how Joanne helped to save their life and get friends. It's so lovely! She truly is a wizard for that, she helped so many children with her books. :)
