Harry Potter Challenge Day 7

Day 7 is favorite female character.

I've spent a lot of time thinking about Harry Potter. In fact, I could write way more than 30 blog posts on Harry Potter, but I won't bore you with that! So it may not come as a surprise to you when I say that I have 2 favorite female characters. Nothing is simple when it comes to me and Harry Potter.
Therefore, I have a favorite kid character, and a favorite adult character. Due to their age (Harry was 11 when the books begin), the kids aren't in-depth characters. They are, in fact, very shallow. That's fine, because they are still developing into themselves, so understandably they don't have the same depth that the adults do. favorite female kid is Hermione.
I think this goes back to the idea of wanting to be in the inner circle of main characters, but I just love Hermione. Considering I named my cat Hermione, this probably isn't a surprise to many people who know me.
Hermione is mature, and I love that. I love that she mellows out after the first book in regards to rule-breaking. I love that she works so hard because she's a muggle, and wants to prove herself. She's everything I'm not, and some things I am...hard working, persistent, loyal, trustworthy and so very smart.
Hermione stood by and waited while Ron muddled his way through an awkward relationship, and when he finally came around, there she was. She patiently taught Ron and Hermione about girls, and, sometimes impatiently, guided them through their classes. She cares deeply for both Harry and Ron, in very different ways, and I love that too.

My favorite adult character is Molly Weasley.
Before I read the final Harry Potter book I was convinced that Molly Weasley was going to die. I had a theory that Harry had to lose everyone close to him so he could stand alone against Voldemort (which is true). I reasoned that he lost a father figure in Sirus, a grandfather figure in Dumbledore, and a mother figure in Mrs. Weasley. Thankfully, I was wrong.
Mrs. Weasley is the most loving (fiction) person I know. Though she mollycoddles Harry, she loves him like another son, and she has plenty! From the moment we meet her she's concerned for Harry's welfare, commenting on why he is alone at the Hogwarts Express, and hoping he is alright. There's just something about Molly Weasley that makes me happy. Though I'm not sure I'd want her to be my mother (she sometimes seems very over-protective, to me), all scenes with her in it make me smile, which says a lot, especially towards the end of the series.
