Harry Potter From Another Character’s Perspective

Unless you’ve been off of social media/the Internet recently, you probably know that ABC Family played all of the Harry Potter movies this past week. As a long-standing Harry Potter fan, I’ve read the books over and over again. Watching the movies over the weekend brought up a thought that I’ve had frequently over the years: I would love to read the books from Ron or Hermione’s perspective. So I put together what the first 2 books would look like!

Harry Potter from Another Character's Perspective

Book 1: Ron Weasley & Becoming Best Friends With One of The Most Famous Wizards Alive

– befriending Harry Potter on the train
– horribly insulting and risking my life for an annoying know-it-all
– becoming best friends with her, too
– going through a series of ridiculously difficult tasks to get a special stone

Book 2: Hermione Granger & The Year I Was Petrified By A Giant Snake

– my 2 best friends missing the train and arriving to school in a flying car
– 1 of them hearing things (and me fearing for his mental health)
– oh wait he wasn’t hearing things, he can just TALK TO SNAKES
– discovering what was going on way before anyone else (per usual)
– being petrified for the rest of the year instead of dying because of knowing more than anyone else

From whose perspective would you want to read the books? Ron, Hermione, Draco Malfoy, a random Hogwarts student …? Let me know!

    Funny! I secretly wished that JK Rowling would've taken a page from Stephanie Meyer's book and re-wrote the entire series from either Ron or Hermione's perspective. I would've loved to have read them from Hermione's eyes.

    OMG this is so funny! I'd love if you write it from Draco's perspective. And add, "my father is going to hear about this" in the last of every sentence haha.

    The books from Hermione's perspective would be so fun- would love to read about her adventures with Krum and her perspective throughout the whole 6th and 7th books!

    Haha. I love this! I would love to read books from their perspectives. I think Hermione's would be brilliant. 🙂

    I totally agree with this! I'm always the person to think about what would this book be like from this other character's POV. I think when it comes to Harry Potter I'd love to see the later books from Draco's perspective. He was always this snotty, arrogant kid – but he was always kind of scared. That became more prevalent as he started getting used as a pawn in it all. I'd love to see his characterization and thoughts change over that time.

    I would want to read it from Snape's point of view even though that version is pretty much guaranteed to be a complete sob fest. Haha

    I would love to hear the story from either Snape's or Draco's point of view. We'll get a similar side of the story from Ron or Hermione. I'd like to hear a different side of the story.

    I love this! This really should happen. I also would like to see things from maybe Voldemort/Snape's point of view. I feel like there's so much untold stuff with then. But great post though! 😀
