Harry Potter

I am a huge fan of the Harry Potter franchise. Books, movies, everything. I always see lists about Harry Potter fans like:
1. You Know You Are Addicted to Harry Potter When...
2. Harry Potter Geeks
3. Things That Prove You Are Obsessed
5. Reasons I Like Harry Potter More Than You
6. Harry Potter Isn't Even Cool And This Proves That It Isn't

Stuff like that.

I always use the term HP and I expect everyone to know what I'm talking about. I mean, Harry Potter is a huge franchise, and has a huge fandom, so shouldn't most people know what HP is? Or at least be able to figure it out?

I've had dreams including characters from the books. When the first few movies came out, I had many dreams, most of them including Harry, Hermione, Ron and Voldemort. I had a diary with a picture of Harry on it, and in it Iwrote:

P.S. Please come back to my dreams tonight because I like hanging out with you guys.

I am SO cool. I wanted my letter and when I didn't get it at the age of eleven, I was very disappointed. I thought about it a lot, and my conclusion was that I didn't get it because I live in Canada.

Wizard Rock(WRock) is probably the coolest thing on my iPod, besides my musicals. If you don't know what wizard rock is, I won't tell you. I have something to tell you guys. I have been crushed on since I was in grade five by this creation. A ton of people adore my lover, and i'm sorry, but he's mine. Yeah. I said it. I'll let him explain wizard rock to you.

1. wizard rock
A genre of music that is based solely around J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The movement started with the band Harry and the Potters, and branched out from there. The goal of wizard rock is to express the love for J.K. Rowling's books through music.
You can find wizard rock bands such as Harry and the Potters, Draco and the Malfoys, and The Whomping Willows on Myspace.

2. wizard rock
An indie music movement in which people write and perform songs inspired by the Harry Potter book series. It is a growing fandom within a fandom, with hundreds of bands around the world, many of whom tour and produce CDs. Wizard rock began as a Myspace phenomenon, but it is receiving recognition as a legitimate genre that spans all styles of music.
Harry and the Potters are often considered to be the "fathers of wizard rock."

1. wrock
a genre of music defined not by musical sound but lyrical content about j.k. rowling's "harry potter" series.
"we support wrocking and rowling" - the wizard rockumentary

Yes. The urbandictionary is in love with me. Obviously. You haven't realized that yet? Anyways, that is what wizard rock is. More about Harry Potter later.
