Throughout the Harry Potter books, there are some variations between the Bloomsbury (British) and Scholastic (American) editions. Below the first section on "Philosopher's vs. Sorcerer's" is a section on other different terminologies used.

Philosopher's vs. Sorcerer's

When Scholastic was publishing Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in America, they decided to rename the book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. They claimed that the American and British uses of the word philosopher were a bit different, so therefore sorcerer was a mais appropriate word. Any true Harry Potter fan, American...

*DISCLAIMER* I did not come up with any of these, I found them all online and put them together...the links which i used are cited in the description. So let's not waste any mais time and get started with the 50 aleatório Harry Potter Facts!!

1) Hermione's last name was going to be Puckle.
2) Hedwig was played por a male in the movies.
3) If a Muggle were to come across Hogwarts, all they would see was a sign that said, "Keep out, dangerous building."
4) fred figglehorn and George were born on April Fool's Day... That should explain their mischievous acts :)
5) Snape was partially based on a teacher JKR once had....

HOGWARTS STAFF
Headmaster Albus Dumbledore: His first name is from the Latin word alba, "white." His last name, according to Rowling interviews, is Old English for "bumblebee." In colour symbolism, white often stands for purity, so the headmaster's name suggests honour and a hard-working nature ("busy as a bee").
Professor Binns: A bin is a large storage container. A dustbin is British English for a garbage can. This boring professor could be described as a ghostly storage for information that many Hogwarts students view as rubbish.
Headmaster Armando Dippet: Armando is from the name Armand,...

If not little known, at least little remembered. ;) I've collected here eleven (in my opinion) of the most interesting and useful ones. Plus my comments on some of them.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

1. There is no such thing as a pureblood family. Every wizarding family has a muggle or a few among them. Some just choose to cruz them over in their family árvore and pretend they don't exist and instead claim themselves as purebloods.

^I can see Blacks and Malfoys doing that. But makes me wonder why were the Crouches noted as purebloods then, as evidently the father and son were not passionate about purity of blood....

I decided to write this artigo because I have seen many comments lately that kind of bother me.

There are several picks in which this has come up, but the last one I have seen, and the reason why I am composição literária this is the question: ¿Have you completely changed your attitude towards a character after reading/watching their past stories? (or something along those lines)

It is a really interesting question, and what really caught my attention were the answers, the comments, especially since it wasn't the first time that I am leitura comments like those.

The thing is that in that pick, James...

Dolores Umbridge: the horrible woman who is the most cruel and hated character in the Harry Potter series. Here are 100 reasons as to why I hate Dolores Umbridge.


1) She believes in extremely harsh, severe, and cruel punishments.

2)Too much pink.

3) She's just doesn't make sense. Like, how she tells everyone to raise their hands if they want to speak, but then she ignores them.

4) She's racist. Well, she's technically "half-breed-ist", because she thinks wizards and witches are better than centaurs, werewolves, goblins, elves, etc. I hate that, because without the help of a lot of half breeds,...

 A rare and natural beauty
A rare and natural beauty
5. Ginny-For starters, I amor her beautiful red hair. It's so gorgeous. I amor it when she has that white flor in her hair, it's pretty. I also amor her eyes. She's just stunning. She has an amazing smile. She is such a natural beauty.

4. McGonagall-Now, before you start calling me weird, let me explain. Have you seen her as a young woman? She's gorgeous! I amor her big eyes, they're so amazing. She has gorgeous hair.

So i noticed a lot of people making these types of artigos and i wanted to make one about my favorito Harry Potter character.

First off i amor her personality. She's definitely an individual. She's not afraid of being who she is and i find that admirable because you see so many people try to change themselves. Her wacky, funny personality is what makes her awesome! She also has so many great frases quotes:
"Wit beyond measure is a mans greatest treasure"
"Your just as sane as i am!"
"Oooh, look, a Blibbering Humdinger!"
"Nobody's ever asked me to a party before, as a friend! Is that why you dyed...

I amor Draco Malfoy so much! And we all know that he has a knack for good comebacks. So, these are some things you can say or do when he insults you. Let's get this list started!

1.If he calls you a Mudblood, say "At least I'm no bleached blonde."
2. If he makes fun of you for being bad at Quidditch, get the Snitch from right under his nose and don't let him forget it.
3. Slap him across the face.
4. Do a Moody and turn him into a ferret.
5. Turn his hair pink.
6. Call him a Daddy's boy.
7. Bewitch snowballs to constantly hit him on the back of his head.
8. Sneak a Puking Pastille into his dinner--...

1) Scream and shriek loudly and tell them you're speaking Mermish.
2) Always speak in a British accent (if you're not from the UK)
3) Relate everything they say to the Harry Potter books & movies.
4) Crowd their caixa de entrada with HP-related emails, and make sure the subject are misleading.
5) Give them Harry Potter merchandise for their birthday and demand they treasure it forever.
6) Pretend you can do magic.
7) Yell "Crucio!" or "Avada Kedavra!" if they insult Harry Potter.
8) If you're late for something, blame it on your broken Time Turner.
9) Sort every person you meet into one of the Hogwarts houses....

Guys, this is for those of you who enjoy reading/support Ron&Hermione Pairing.

Sixth Year
Hermione's POV

Oh, I wanted to soco her. Right then and there, and shove her to the floor for good measure. I'm talking about Lavender Brown, who had her lips pressed against the one person I loved enough to feel immediate hatred for her. Ron. I wanted to do horrible things to her. Instead, I stood there in shock, tears welling up in my eyes. Harry turned to face me, and I turned away, running towards my dormitory. I slammed the door, which made not even a dent in the sound that was coming from downstairs....

A handy-dandy Wikihow artigo on how to make a horcrux, for all you aspiring Dark witches and wizards out there!
Credit: wikihow.com


1. Become an extremely powerful witch or wizard. This will take years of study and sacrifice which lie beyond the scope of a WikiHow article. As a general guide you should not attempt to create a horcrux until you can cast non-verbal killing curses.

2. Locate an object of extreme significance to you. An emotional attachment to the object will aid the process and make it easier on your body and soul.

3. Bathe in the Water of Sorrows and eat 1 cup of paste made from...

Bellatrix Lestrange
I have been on the Harry Potter spot for a while now and I constantly find myself getting asked "why do you like Bellatrix?" So I decided to type up this article. Thank you lifeisgoodx3 for inspiring me to do so.

So why would some one like a person who killed Sirius, Dobby, Tonks, and tortured Hermione and the Longbottms? Well I actually have multiple reasons as to why I like her; Bellatrix stands for what she believes in, she's crazy and funny, pretty, unique, strong and confident, she has an interesting story behind her, I can relate to her, she has potential to be a good guy, and I have a...

Harry Potter and the Philosopher/Sorcerer's Stone
For Jessica, who loves stories, for Anne, who loved them too, and for Di, who heard this one first.
Explanation: Jessica is JK Rowling’s twelve-year-old daughter. Anne was Jo’s mother, who, unfortunately, died of Multiple Sclerosis on December 30th, 1990. Dianne, or “Di," is Jo’s younger sister who she read Philosopher/Sorcerer’s Stone before Jo sent it off to be reviewed.

I'm basing this review mostly on J.K. Rowling's official words and a little on the books's content. I write this regarding how the pergunta of the educating style is often pondered and some even think "all pure-bloods were início schooled".

The purity of one's blood is not relevant to how a child is schooled before Hogwarts. With the exception of families like Malfoys or Blacks who would probably die before sending their kids amongst muggles to learn anything. But whatever few pure-blood families there were left - as far as I see - most of them are not known to be like those two, but have a respectable...

This artigo is reviewing his devotion as a Death Eater, his possible part in the Longbottom torture, his childhood, his father's amor for him - and some other things - always basing on what we can read from the Goblet of fogo book. Weighting on my own interpretation, of course.

I know the vast majority of people seem to have taken a liking of the first impression the book gives on the father-son relationship, especially por Junior's own words, so I respect that view - however those are only his beliefs and not necessarely the truth and I personally like to dig deeper into the possibilities....

"Who wants to be in Slytherin? I think I'd leave, wouldn't you?" - James Potter (DH)
Imagine being in Hufflepuff, I think I'd leave, wouldn't you?" - Draco Malfoy (PS)
Similar yet different!
Quite ironic isn't it? Father of the hero and arch nemisis of the hero have the same line. I don't think it's a coincidence that both James and Draco quote a similar line about a house they were prejudiced against. Both boys were brought up as the only sons in rich pureblood families. Both were undoubtedly spoilt. Both were definitely raised with a house prejudice. Both were definitely arrogant, attention-seeking...

 MARNIE!
MARNIE!
Hi guys, I'm a big fã of Harry Potter and I remember watching Halloweentown. So, I'm going to be composição literária the similarities between Hermione and another young witch, Marnie Piper.

Marnie Piper

I first saw Halloweentown back in 2001 before Harry Potter hit the cinema theatres! Okay, I was very happy that Marnie is her own character and she is not the typical Mary Sue character.

Hermione Granger

Okay, I watched all of the Harry Potter series, and I have that Hermione is actually very much like Marnie, in terms of personality except that she mais of a book-worm. To whom I look up to, not to forget that their names rhyme!
If Harry Potter and Halloweentown were to be set in the same universe, it would be great to make a film about the characters together!

Hermione or Marnie?

Who do you like? If you have anymore similarities between these 2 heroines, let me know!
