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,...

Since we launched Pottermore, our one million Beta users have given us lots of amazing feedback, and we’ve been collecting their thoughts and comments so that we can make pottermore the best experience it can be before it opens to everyone.

After looking closely at all the information that we've gathered, we have decided to further extend the Beta period so we can improve pottermore before giving mais people access. This means the site will not be opening to new users in the immediate future, but please know that we will open registration as soon as we can.

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...

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;

As I did with my artigo like this in the Once spot, Imma do state the song name and pull lyrics from each song that just really remind me Bellatrix and how said lyric reminds me of her. For once the list actually is in order from what I think suits her most to least.


1. Be My Friend por One Eye'd Doll: The no geral, global story of the song talks of a serial killer who doesn't understand why she can't seem to make friends. The chorus goes as the following; Serial killers are people too if you take away the voices I'm just like you I'll hack you up and bury you in my yard but why does making friends...

Severus Snape,the missing piece of puzzle of the Harry Potter series.He is also perhaps the most crucial character in the whole series and after its completion,many readers' favourite.In short,he is JK Rowling's masterstroke.

But to be frank,even a few days back I could not even sympathize with Severus.In the initial books he was just a menacing person who gives the trio a hard time without really any proper reason.He was not even a just professor always favoring his own house students.Harry didn't like him either of course & suspected his involvement in the many dark things that start happening...

Sorcerer's Stone
The Mirror of Erised: Erised is Desire spelled backward, or how it would appear in a mirror. Also, the inscription reads "Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi," which read in a mirror reads, "I show not your face but your hearts desire." (Thanks, Kathryn)


They could hear footsteps, Filch running as fast as he could towards Peeves' shouts.
"Oh, mover over," Hermione snarled. She grabbed Harry's wand, tapped the lock and whispered, "Alohomora!"
The lock clicked and the door swung open -- they piled through it, shut it quickly and pressed their ears against it, listening.

I do not own Harry Potter, or A Midsummer Night's Dream. I did have a dream in summer one time, though...I think.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CORNELIUS
Now, Lydia, our nuptial hour
Draws on apace; four happy days bring in
Another moon: but, O, methinks, how slow
This old moon wanes! She lingers my desires,
Like to a step-dame or a dowager
Long withering out a young man revenue.

LYDIA
Four days will quickly steep themselves in night;
Four nights will quickly dream away the time;
And then the moon, like to a silver bow
New-bent in heaven, shall behold the night
Of our solemnities.

CORNELIUS...

I amor the fact Barty Junior was a Death Eater. That's what I fell in amor with, in him; a judge's son being a Death Eater - that sweet, delicious irony!! And I'm also very fond of fictional, troubled father-son relationships.

Most people think Crouch Jr. is mais like Voldemort than anyone else of the Death Eaters because they both ended up killing their own father with glee, while they were amargo, amarga to them. So far I totally agree.

Before talking to Dumbledore under the influence of veritaserum, the book describes ”Moody” looking "completely insane" when he said, that both he and Voldemort...

The Fidelius Charm is a powerful charm that is central to the Harry Potter tale. In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Professor Flitwick tells us the charm is:

"an immensely complex spell ... involving the magical concealment of a secret inside a living soul. The information is hidden inside the chosen person, or Secret-Keeper, and is henceforth impossible to find -- unless, of course, the Secret-Keeper chooses to divulge it." (PoA pg 205/152)

J.K. Rowling gave us further information on the how the Fidelius Charm works. In a perguntas frequentes pesquisa on her official site, she says:

A werewolf is a human being who, upon the complete rising of the full moon, becomes a fearsome and deadly near-wolf. lobisomens can be easily distinguished from regular lobos por their shorter snout, mais human-like eyes, the tufted tail, and their mindless hunting of humans whilst in lobo form. At all other times, they appear as normal humans, although they will gain a pallor as the moon approaches and then wanes. This condition is caused por infection with lycanthropy, also known as werewolfry. A werewolf cannot chose whether or not to transform and will no longer remember who they are and...

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...

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.

3. Luna-I amor Luna's looks! She's stunning! I amor her long, blonde hair. I also adore her eyes, not to big and not too small. I amor her rabanete earrings, they compliment her...

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...
