Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basket case, a princess, and a criminal. Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the breakfast club.

Voldemort and Harry: Names

I would just like to point out how familiar Voldemort is with Harry’s name.

All throughout the series we can tell who is on good terms with Harry by how they refer to him.

Dumbledore: *gently* Harry.

Severus: *sneered* Potter!

Draco: *jeeringly* Scarhead!

Hermione: *happily* Harry!

Umbridge: *tittered* Mr. Potter!

Vernon: *enraged* POTTAH!

Molly: *relieved* Harry.

Usually, the people he is on good terms with, call him by his given name. And those who use his given name who aren’t close to him, are usually trying to get something from him.

And then we have Voldemort who literally calls him ‘Harry’ or ‘Harry Potter’ on a constant basis. He calls Harry by name more often than anyone else in the series. And he does so unnecessarily. As if he needs to remind Harry that Voldemort is speaking to him.

Voldemort already has issues with being an attention seeker - he monologued in GoF for a whole chapter, fyi - but it seems that he really likes to have Harry’s attention above all others.

Voldemort does not refer to many by their given names, either in the books or in the films. Usually given names are saved for his ‘favorites’. People he finds uninteresting, annoying, or worthless are referred to by their surnames.

Barty, Bellatrix, Severus, sometimes Lucius, and Nagini most certainly are favorites. And yet others are: Wormtail, Crabbe, Macnair, Dumbledore, mudbloods, blood traitors etc… It shows whom he actually holds in higher regard.

Interesting how Harry slots into that group of people who Voldemort actually calls by their given name.

It was something I noticed early on and to this day I still find it interesting and tend to use it a lot in my fanfics.

Lord Voldemort’s obsession with Harry Potter goes far deeper than just wanting to kill him.

Harry Potter is like the gateway fandom. You start reading the books, then all of a sudden you have a sonic screwdriver, you want to go to Rivendell, and you have this awkward fascination with Sherlock Holmes. And you don’t really know how any of it happened, but you’re pretty sure it started with Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Dursley of Four Privet Drive who were proud to say that they were perfectly normal thank you very much.

No one knew who the tabby belonged to, though they presumed Mrs Figg as the cat had been seen to enter her house. However, it also seemed rather fond of number four’s back garden and the green eyed boy with whom it played most Sunday afternoons when the Dursleys went out. Of course McGonagall would never admit she had a fondness for playing with Harry when she was supposed to be keeping an eye on him.

Dear Mr. Vernon,

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did was wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us – in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That’s the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed.
