Harry Potter and the need for fans to find someone in the series to cling to

When it comes to the Harry Potter series and finding our favorite characters, it seems as if fans need to find something to cling to in the series. Why is that?

The Harry Potter series is filled with characters that fans cling to in one way or another. Whether it is because they’re their favorite or because of something else entirely, we tend to love a specific character and we never want to let them go. But when you really stop and think about why, it’s interesting to see who we love to talk about and why.

For instance, my own favorite character is Sirius Black. I never have really been able to figure out why and I haven’t really questioned it. I just love him and accepted that without really thinking about it. And I’m not alone in that approach. Many of us just tend to love these characters and that’s that.

I think, when it comes to the Harry Potter series, there is a love we share for the books and that love just makes us feel like we have to have a favorite character (even if we don’t necessarily need to). For instance, we can just love a series as a whole without a favorite character taking over that love. I know I do it with Star Trek and others do it with other franchises so why can’t we just love the Potter series without a favorite? Or why do we have to explain our favorite characters? This series is just so big and so amazing and maybe that’s something that can just stand completely on its own without us having to pick favorites.
