HARRY POTTER

My favorite female character: Luna Lovegood, Cho Chang, Narcissa Malfoy
My favorite male character: Draco Malfoy
My favorite book/season/etc: Prisoner of Azkaban, because I just loved how it was so different from the rest of the series. It didn't deal directly with Voldemort, and it was the introduction to Sirius Black and Remus Lupin who I adore. It's also my favorite movie of the franchise, too.
My favorite cast member: Tom Felton, simply because even after years later after the films since he continues to go to conventions and still happily talk about the HP series. He clearly looks back at those years fondly and it's so great to see that kind of enthusiasm. I also love how engaged he is with the fans and the fandom, and how he doesn't look back at the years he was in this series with embarrassment but with pride. Most of the cast is like that, I think, since none of them look back at their HP days and regret it and will always be thankful for it being a part of their lives.
My favorite ship: Harry/Draco. My OTP. ❤
A character I’d die defending: Draco Malfoy, always. But also Cho Chang, because she got a lot of unjustified hate during the series that still is baffling to me, since she didn't do anything wrong.
A character I just can’t sympathize with: Ron Weasley.
A character I grew to love: I guess it would probably be Cho Chang. I always felt uncomfortable with the hate she got, but it wasn't until after the series ended that I basically gained a whole new perspective of the character and I just grew to love her more and more. I also tend to have grown to love characters that weren't developed at all in the books that fandom has kind of took and created their own versions of, like Pansy Parkinson, for example. Idk if that counts or not, since these are more fanon versions than anything, but still.
My anti otp: Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny. I just never understood the appeal of either, to be honest. They just never made any sense to me.

I agree that Cho never really did anything wrong. I think she and Harry fell in love that an awkward time - both of them were messes emotionally.

I actually wish the books had let Cho remain a friend of Harry's, although I can see why she was more of a one-off character. (I feel that way about the DA in general, TBH.)

I felt horrible for Katie Leung, who had to suffer so much hate because of the hate book fans had for the character.

I honestly wished that JKR had actually developed these characters beyond them simply being apparent one-offs. I can see Harry reconciling with Cho afterward, realizing that yeah, what happened wasn't her fault (since it wasn't), and they made amends and they continued to be good friends after that. It makes sense considering, y'know? Or hell, even to try again later when they aren't complete messes emotionally and psychologically and filled with horrid teenage hormones, since I still think Cho/Harry as being adorable. Thankfully, fandom has corrected this over the years with certain fanons that I subscribe to.
