What a fantastic day yesterday! My HP blogfest was a HOOT! You all went way out for this and the entries were FANTASTIC!

For those of you who missed it yesterday, just scroll down and read my entry and then hop over to the others. You will not be disappointed. I promise.

After reading and enjoying each entry, THE most popular girl at Hogwarts is .... Singing frogs please....


It seems a whopping twelve people had chosen Luna to be their BFF! And that was out of 34 entries. You go LUNA! Keep wearing those Spectrum Spectras! I think that's what they're called.

I came across some very wonderful entries, and even one from Heather Gardner brought a tear to my eye. If I had to choose a few favorites, which believe me is very difficult because they were all so awesome. But Donea Lee's, Fred and George is beautifully/comically written, Roland's Dumbledore and Snape, what can I say? another masterpiece, and, of course, Heather's letter to her child.

Now I MUST mention my favorite and UNIQUE couplings ... and believe me I was SHOCKED by a few, especially PK Hrenzo.... you naughty girl, you... GRAB and GOYLE?  Yes, everyone you ARE reading right.

Snape/Arthur Weasley from Nancy Williams ... could you picture Snape? Snape/Lupin from Deniz ... again, could you picture this? Tonks and Charley Weasley from the "Tart"...very interesting trio. Percy Weasley and Penelope Clearwater from Marie Reardon..hmmmm. Cedric and Hannah from Heather. BUT my ALL time favorite....

LUNA AND MOANING MYTLE!  from Chippy. Now that's an interesting choice.

Of course, there were other couplings like Fred and George(4), Luna and Hermione(5)( in Gina C's case she inhabit Cho's body), Luna and Collin Crevy(2), Dennis and Collin Crevy, Ginny and Luna, Dumbledore and Snape, Bell and Spinnet, Arthur and Molly, Neville and Luna(3), Ron and Luna, (boy Luna gets around), Sirius and James, Lupin and Tonks, and Harry and Hermione. I think that's all of them. I might have missed one.

Surprisingly only on person chose Harry and that was Susan Forbes. Funny how Harry or even Ron(another lonely one choice) are not popular with all of you.

Well thank you all for joining in on the fun. Now I must get ready for the more serious A-Z Challenge.

Have a great Thursday everyone!


  1. Perhaps no one picked Harry because they felt he was such friends with Ron and Hermoine, there was no room in his life for another best mate.

    That or no one wanted to have a target on their backs by being mates with him! LOL.

    I think Luna was so popular because she was such a fascinating character, yet so under-used by JK.

    A quiet day here in the blogverse. Preparing for the A-Z challenge perhaps? I have no time for that one, so I expect few visitors at my blog for April.

    Have a great day, Roland

  2. Glad you had fun. Over 850 participants in the Challenge now!

  3. It was a lot of fun, Michael. Thanks for hosting!

  4. Glad it all went well, even though I have no idea what most of this post is about! :)

    Looking forward to the A to Z!

  5. It was a great blogfest! Thank you so much for your nice words about my entry. I really enjoyed writing it. And thanks for mentioning me in your blog post!
    See you all tomorrow!

  6. Hi - thanks so much for hosting it and your lovely comment over at Daily Dodo - this was great fun. Catch you tomorrow

  7. Glad your HP 'fest was a success MIchael!


  8. Go Luna!! Michael, just wanted to let you know that I'm giving you a Versatile Blogger award tomorrow. Stop by if you have a chance!

  9. Nice to meet you Michael! I really enjoyed reading everyone's entries and reasons for their picks. (I thought I was the only adult in love with the Potter series-thank goodness I'm not alone...)

  10. I really do LOVE Harry Potter! I need to re-read the series again soon! This was so much fun, Michael! Thanks for hosting and thank you so much for picking me as one of your faves. I'm so glad you enjoyed my entry! I felt inspired ~ :) See you at the A-Z!

  11. Luna has always been my favorite character.

    Oh, and Michael, did you get the email I sent you? If you did, and didn't mean to reply, I apologize for bugging you. I'm just a little paranoid...

  12. No surprise there. Luna is pretty fantastic!

  13. Great idea - lots of fun. Luna totally rocks :)

  14. oh, yes. She would totally be my bestie... This was a fun fest! :o)

  15. Awww, I'm so sorry I missed entering this, Michael. It's the end of the month and closing houses is kind of hairy right now. I only work until the beginning of May. I can't wait to stay home again. I feel overwhelmed sometimes. But there were some fun entries! I <3 HP!

    Sorry. :D

  16. It was an awesome blogfest! I wish I'd participated! Great job, everyone.

  17. Thanks for hosting such a great fest! And, awww, Luna. That's cos she's so sweet and genuine, and tough as nails beneath.

  18. I love Luna in the movies, but she's a little too pretty compared to the book version I think ;)

  19. Ha ha! Well, of course mine was all in good fun. I'm in character with the villain in my new WIP, so I had to choose Crabbe and Goyle. But I LOVE that someone chose Moaning Myrtle!! She is awesome!

    And of course, Luna is so laid back everyone loves her. Great blogfest, Michael... such fun as usual.

    How bout that monsoon yesterday?? Madness!

  20. Alas, I missed the blogfest. I totally forgot about it in my preparations to go to the hospital to have a baby. I assume that's a good enough excuse. ;) But I would have chosen Hermione and Ginny Weasley. Hermione and I would totally be kindred spirits.
