Dear wizard of the future-

If you're leitura this, I presume you studied History of Magic at Hogwarts or some other Wizarding institution. You have studied the segundo wizarding war, and you will have heard about me. Allow me to introduce myself- my name is Tom Riddle, and I am attempting to change the Wizarding World for the better- although if you are leitura this, I was unsuccessful and am no longer here. What I tell you today will completely change your perception of everything that happened during that time.

My story starts, as you are aware, at the...

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...

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,...

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...

1. Ask him why he 'doesn't have such a cool scar?'
2. Laugh at him.
3. Wake him up por cantar de praia, praia Boys songs in his ear. 'Round, round, get around, I get around...'
4. Knit him things. Really hideous things.
5. Give him kangaroo-ears for a month.
6. Smile during Death-Eater meetings and say you taught him everything he knows.
7. Chew bubblegum all the time. Should he address you, your only response will be a series of huge bubbles in quick succession, the last of which will burst everywhere and make a mess.
8. Dance the Funky Chicken.
9. Ask him when was the last time he took a bath.

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,...

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--...

Here is yet another Ron-centric one shot. He deserves something dedicated to him on his birthday.

Ever wondered what was going on inside our favorito Ginger's head when he sacrificed himself in the PS. This is my version.

English is not my first language. Not even my second. So, I apologize for grammar and spelling mistakes.

ok so I found this stupid person listing all the reasons why twilight is better than twilight. so I replied to every single one. and this is her picture:





1. Robert Pattinson, can you say HOT? And he's totally sexy when he sparkles!

So? Hotness has absolutely no correlation to atuação ability. He was also in Harry Potter first.


2. Taylor Lautner, I mean, have you SEEN those muscles?

NOT HOT. Strange nose, closed up eyes and no atuação ability. That is just my personal opinion. As I said, hotness has no correlation to atuação ability.

Summary: My first ever fanfic! The seguinte Generation kids can't get enough during natal at the Burrow! All ages set two years before epilogue.

A snowball sailed through the air, nearly missing a blonde head as it hit a tree.
"Take that!" cried fifteen ano old Victoire Weasley as she got up and aimed a snowball at her sister, thirteen ano old Dominique Weasley. Dominique squealed as the snowball collided with her forehead. "I'll get you for that!" she yelled, as she chucked a snowball through...

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...

 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!
 HERMIONE!!

por now everyone probably knows I have a crazy thing for Bellatrix and think she's the most wonderful thing that has happened to the HP series. But there are some huge differences between book Bella and movie Bella. But gosh dammit, I amor them both! Here's why.

Book Bellatrix

Book Bella for me is everything I look for in a villainess. She's ruthless, she's wild, and she's got no mercy and no qualms about her bad deeds.While movie Bellatrix does share this trait I feel as though she has her moments of guilt. I say this because I really don't know how else to interpret this;

J.K. Rowling goes Beyond the Epilogue
[info from various sources including MSNBC and USA Today]

J.K. Rowling has announced in new interviews with the Today show on NBC TV today (July 26) that the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was vague on purpose.

She said it was her desire for it to be "nebulous," something "poetic," and that she wanted the readers to feel as if they were looking at Platform 9 3/4 through the mist, unable to make out exactly who was there and who was not.

She admitted her original epilogue was "a lot mais detailed," including the name of every child born to...

After the sorting had finish, and McGonagall took the hat away, Ron and Harry grinned at each other. "Food, finally we get to eat." Ron grumbled. "That took way too long."

Hermione kicked him for what seemed like the millionth time today. "Ron! You know the sorting's mais important!" She scolded him.

"Nope it's not even close. I'm starving." Ron shot back.

The two contiuned to argue about it. "Do they fight a lot?" I askde Harry.

Harry shrugged. "Understatement." He told me. "It's like World War III when they do."

Ron and Hermione reminded me of Lisa and Jack, two of my muggle friends back at...

The name of the rua where the Dursleys live is a reference to that most suburban plant, the ligustro, privet bush, which makes neat hedges around many English gardens. I liked the associations with both suburbia and enclosure, the Dursleys being so smugly middle class, and so determinedly separate from the wizarding world. The name of their area is 'Little Whinging', which again sounds appropriately parochial and sniffy, 'whinging' being a colloquial term for 'complaining or whining' in British English.

J.K Rowling:


Although I describe the Dursleys' house as big and square, as befitted Uncle Vernon's...
