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,...

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.

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....

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...

On the night that Sirius died, after the battle at the Ministry of Magic at the end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore showed Harry, with the aid of his pensieve, the complete lost Prophecy:

"The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches... Born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh mês dies... and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not... and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives... the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will...

Whenever my teacher used to say that we've to write an essay on our favorito hobby, i used to get furious coz i never knew what my fav hobby was? I was not content with this and i always got low marks in composição literária this essay. What's the thing that i always loved to do, i always thought about that.Until Harry Potter came into my life at the age of 13. i read about it dia n night. I always talked about it and was very proud of my hobby. Whenever a new student came to our classroom i never forgot to ask him/her if he/she read harry potter or was a potter head.

These books really freshens up my mind....

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...

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,...

To start I would like to say that I am not posting this to be mean or start any fights. I'm posting this because a lot of people ask me why I don't like her or simply assume it's only because I like Bellatrix, and I want to clear this up. Plus I'd rather just post a link to this artigo rather than explain it every time someone asks.

Anyways, the first and biggest problem I have with Molly is (yes the obvious one lol, I'll get it out of the way first) that she killed Bellatrix. I do respect her motives, her kid's life was on the line. But I still don't like it. I also don't like how she called...

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...

The Chamber of Scerets
Chamber of Memories
October 31, 1992
    Minerva McGonagall sat gazing out of her bedroom window into the rain swept grounds of Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was nearly midnight, but Minerva was unable to sleep; the event of the evening were still playing in her head. "The Chamber Of Secrets has been opened; enemies of the heir, beware". The image of the ominous message on the mural seemed to be etched on the insides of her eyelids. She shivered at the thought of the chamber being opened again. Memories began to resurface, memories that she had long tried...

Now that Harry Potter is over, I’ve made a little list of the films from my least-favorite to most favorito (as of now…it tends to change), listing some of the pros and cons of each. I wrote this just for fun, and I’d like to hear your thoughts as well. This is just my humble opinion, and I’m sure it will be different from yours, but no rude comments please :)



#8. HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE (2004) Mike Newell
The fourth Harry Potter movie, whilst not being exactly the longest, feels like it’s the longest. The special effects are great, but in my point of view they hardly...

    Minerva McGonagall walked down the corridor with her head held high; she simply couldn't help but feel pleased with herself. And, who could, for that matter? She had finally done it, she was finally a teacher at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
    The young Transfiguration teacher walked confidently into the great hall on her first dia of teaching, and she felt a small jolt of satisfaction as she passed por the Gryffindor mesa, tabela on her way to the staff table. It was not that she had ever disliked sharing meals with her fellow...

Okay, I seriously wasn't going to go here but I feel the need to express my opinion a little further. So I have heard some of you say " The Harry Potter series will be re-made to keep up with time, or keep the legend alive". That is fine that you have that opinion, but I only have one or two questions. You don't think the movie series will live on as a classic. Its the topo, início earning movie series in the world, not counting inflation. It has the best British cast in the world. Besides I think Hollywood avoids remakes if they can unless they are trying to make quick money. And if they do remake...

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....

There is a popular theory among non-Harry/Ginny-fans that Harry only fell for Ginny as a result of her giving him a amor potion. They claim that Harry's feelings developed too suddenly to be natural and that Ginny was obsessed and desperate enough to do this in order to win Harry. They also claim that the prevalence of amor potions and potions in general within Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince hints that a amor potion was used. The theory is particular popular among film-only fans.

The first problem with this theory is that Harry's behaviour doesn't match that of the only other example...
