This is a meme hosted by Uncorked Thoughts.The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/ films/ J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related! She is picking a topic within HP for us to focus on each week and then if anyone wants to take part feel free! All she asks is to link back to her blog :). There is now a full list of the topics to come here.
If there was one thing you could change about Harry Potter, what would it be?
That's a double-edged sword. Harry has flaws. He can have a short fuse. He falls into depressions that he won't let others help him out of. He is arrogant at times, thinking he's indestructible at others. He can become obsessed with one particular problem, and overlook everything else around him. He can be a bit too trusting. He can completely ignore reason and logic. He is stubborn and impatient. He could also work a little harder in school.
The thing is, these character traits are what make him believable. They are what makes us fall in love with him and feel like we know him inside and out. It's what causes us to feel like we are in his thoughts more significantly, and for those reasons, I wouldn't want to change a thing. All of his thoughts, actions, decisions, and flaws brought him to the exact point in the story that he was supposed to be at the time.
What would you change about him if you could?
