Stupify, and the only thing I can think of writing is about Harry Potter. This spell is used many times through the series of films. From students to teachers, they have felt the force of this spell.

When my daughter was ten she didn’t like reading, and then Harry Potter changed all that. We read the first book together when she was ten years old. She grew up with Harry, and for many of the books we queued up at midnight to get the copy first.

I still remember reading the half blood prince and being shocked that Snape killed Dumbledore. I stayed up most of the night reading the book. The film, well, it is better not to mention that. When Dobby was killed I cried, but then I am emotional with any book I read. For that matter any film I watch. I’m not sorry about that, as my dad used to say, it shows you have a heart.

So, there wasn’t anything else I could do with this word. Stupify could be a spell Bethany the pirate in training could do, but it belongs with Harry Potter and there it shall stay.

  1. I was shocked after the sixth book when Dumbledore was murdered by Snape. I was so angry at him and I really wanted Dumbledore to be avenged. But when death came for Snape in the final part, it wasn’t so satisfying especially after all that his final memories revealed. I cried after reading about Dobby’s untimely death too. Harry Potter was the series that made me fall in love with reading too.

  2. I think for me it came at a time when I was trying to get my daughter to read. It was something we did together. It is a good job I did, because I wouldn’t be Writer Ravenclaw otherwise.
