I am a big Harry Potter fan. I have all the books (2 sets actually) and movies. I have received some of the Lego sets as gifts and I went to Harry Potter The Exhibit when it was in Chicago. I've been to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter and own the Unofficial Harry Potter Cookbook. I carry Harry and Hagrid around on my keys and wear a shirt that says "Muggle". I even saw Daniel Radcliffe on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. I wasn't, however, enraged when Harry Potter failed to win an Oscar this year. I may be a fan, but I'm also a realist.
Now that I've established just how crazy I am, I just want to say that there has been some slight withdrawal now that Harry Potter is over. I love watching the movies and I still am looking forward to sharing the books with my kids when they are old enough, but without the promise of new material (lets be honest and admit that Pottermore has been a huge disappointment and all try to forget about it), there is a big hole that has been left unfilled.
I know there are plenty of other fandoms to join. I'm a huge fan of The Hunger Games and am anxiously awaiting the movie next weekend, but Harry Potter is like my first true love. Nothing will ever match the feelings I have for that series.
That's when my sister-in-law stepped in. She's much cooler than I am. Read: She's in college, has no kids, and actually interacts with people over the age of seven on a regular basis. She introduced me to this music video below. And it made me so happy.
If you are a Harry Potter fan dealing with withdrawal, watch the video. I love Rupert Grint so much more for it. I had no idea who Ed Sheeran was before this, but I will definitely be getting to know his music better after this.
