Prompt Seventeen: Name a fictional character or monster you would love to have as a friend. Why do you think they would be a good friend to you?
If you know me, you know that I love Harry Potter. It holds a special place in my heart, and it always will. And that is why a fictional character I would love to have as a friend would be. . . .
Hagrid, the friendly half-giant.
Hagrid would be a great friend to have. He’s loyal and steady. He always there for you if you need a cup of tea or a rock cake. He knows exactly what to say when you are feeling down. But he also knows what to say when you are being an idiot. He’s not afraid to tell it how it is. He has advice and some might think it’s simple, but Hagrid is usually right.
“No good sittin’ worryin’ abou’ it,” he said. “What’s comin’ will come, an’ we’ll meet it when it does.”Rubeus Hagrid, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
He is always there for Harry no matter what. Sure, he has an unhealthy obsession for dangerous creatures like dragons and Blast-Ended Skrewts. Not to mention the habit of telling things he shouldn’t be telling. But Hagrid will always be there for you no matter what.
After all, we all know that there is no Hogwarts without Hagrid.
