Thank You, Jo (Or: The Final Thoughts Of A High-Functioning Potter Aficionado)

Dear Jo,

Thank you.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your story. Thank you for Harry.

In it I – we – are lost in an excitement that always presents itself each time we open “Philosopher’s Stone” to start a re-read of the series. An excitement that takes us on a joyride of emotions as we turn the page and find friendships, heartarche, pain and sorrow, the bliss of a Quidditch victory for Gryffindor and the first kiss of a beloved character.
