Well, it's not essential to know any youTube songs, but you'll probably hear a lot of them, and it's fun to sing along. Even so nerdfighter gatherings are definitely worth it, you'll never meet a more awesome group of people.
Oh, I know quite a few lolis. They're just not nerdfighters, although some of them are pretty awesome. At the end of the day it's just clothes. Having loli in common with someone doesn't guaranty that we're going to get along. I went to Manchester MCM the other day; it was a lot of fun. :) (don't call lolita a costume, we consider it a fashion) Hmm, mostly I think it's really pretty. It's the cutesy princesses-like look that most little girls want. Some of us just don't grow out of it :p That and normal clothes can get a bit boring.
Haha, quite a few yes. I lost count a while ago. My first gather was almost 2 years ago now. There always completely awesome, and I've met most of my close friends at gatherings. So very glad I found nerdfighteria. You?
i thought ginny looked like the Australian prime minister!! :) i loved pretty much all of it, but i was a bit disappointed that they didnt feature nevilles grandma or the bit with kreature at the end (but i can forgive that one as they didnt show the friendship that harry builds with him in part 1)
Yeah, it's at least one of my favourite series of all time. And I was one of the first, and have probably been rather insufferable due to that in the past, but I'm working on it xD My older brother (bless him xD) read the first one to me when I was 6, because I didn't like reading, but then he refused to read me the second one, so I had to do it myself :P And loved it. So... I blame him for my book obsession :D He created a monster :P
And the fourth book is possibly my favourite. When you're reading it at 7 or 8 it scares the crap out of you O_O Murders, graveyards, giant snakes... yeah.
I've read a fair few fantasy series, as it's just an awesome genre. Dragons? Magic? Elves? Yes please!
My favourite (other, perhaps, than HP. I can never decide, really) is the Discworld, because it's hilarious. More of a parody than anything, though. I also love the Abhorsen series (Garth Nix), Magician (Raymond E. Feist) the Lord of the Rings, Eragon (sort of. It was less interesting when I reread it recently. Kind of... cliché). And I love Neil Gaiman books, particularly American Goda (and Sandman, if that counts).
Do you read a lot of fantasy? And are you interested in any other genres?
Me and my friend are both pretty negative, so it works out well xD
I suppose I love HP because I've always loved HP (read the first one when I was 6, it was only out a year, and not famous, really), but I suppose... I love the traditional good vs. evil, I love the humanity of the characters (their good qualities and their faults). I love the idea of magic, but I love how it didn't fix everything OR ruin everything. People are just people. There are petty criminals, truly evil people, racists... and also brave, good people. I think it just taught me a lot about the human race when I was growing up, in a humorous and amazing way (as a 'muggle', it really shows you about the so-called 'superiority' of a race - they don't know how anything works, and are useless without their magic :P).
