Of Wizards and Jumpers

My hubby and I were watching Jumper on Star Movies last night and I told him that David (Hayden Christensen) has something in common with wizards. That is, they can all teleport or more popularly known as Apparition (and Disapparition) in the world of Harry Potter. Hah! And you thought this was one serious post LOL!

That is one interesting power and honestly, if given the chance, it would be too cool to go from one place to another just like that. This got me thinking if there are such people as Jumpers, would I want to be one of them? It's a fascinating and scary thought at the same time because there's a group that's too keen in eliminating them. So they are not free to be who they are as they are being tracked and it's like there's no freedom to be who they are.

On the other hand, no questions asked, I would love to be a witch and be friends with Harry, Ron and Hermione. I can apparate to any place and as long as I have passed Apparition, the Ministry of Magic will give me a license so that I can do it legally. With that, I can apparate and disapparate in peace. Add to this the fact that Voldemort and his Death Eaters have long been defeated by Harry Potter, along with some of the DA members and the Order of the Phoenix, so that leaves the Wizarding World such a great place to live in.

Sigh. If only such world exists, I would be the first to transfer there. And if only teleportation is possible, I would stand in line just to get it at all costs. No need for passports and visas :P

In my moment of intense immersion into HP I believe such a world exists, lol! I'm glad to read this post.

JK Rowling's imagination amazes me no end!
