Hello all! My friend Loral wrote this, and I really liked it.
So I’m sharing it with you.

So. Harry Potter.
(I pretty much assume ya’ll have read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. If you haven’t, I’m sorry if this doesn’t make sense. Consider reading it? It is fun. As long as you don’t think too hard.)
