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,...

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.

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.

3. Kristen Stewart. An extremely talented and beautiful actress, with...

Dumbledore's office
*Dumbledore's office, a quiet retreat and study for the sage Headmaster, was located in one of the highest towers of Hogwarts. Dumbledore's fascination with the universe and the skies became the room's defining feature.

*One of the most expensive props in the film was the working telescope in Dumbledore's office which was rarely seen on screen.

*On the shelves in Dumbledore's office are hundreds of books, many of which are actually old phonebooks covered in leather and dust.

Gryffindor common room
*The Gryffindor common room and the boys' dormitory were actually built as two connected sets. The staircase spirals up to a hallway that in one direction led to the boys' dormitory set. In the other direction a doorway simply drops off into nowhere.

Favorite frases por Draco Malfoy


"Well, I can certainly see why we're trying to keep them alive. Who wouldn't want pets that can burn, sting, and bite all at once?"

"Longbottom, if brains were gold, you'd be poorer than Weasley, and that's saying something."

"Oh how silly we�ve been!" Malfoy sneered. "We should have stroked them! Why didn�t we guess?"

"Oh tremendously funny!" said Malfoy. "Really witty, giving us books that...

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.

Hi everyone,
I'm not really a Harry Potter fan, but you see, a couple months atrás I came across a website called "Always Astrology". It provides a descrição of the twelve zodiac signs (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces), Moon signs, and the planetary placements (I mean like Mercury signs, Venus signs). It also provided a free birth chart calculator. So after doing mine, I've pretty much been obsessed and had done charts for everyone I know, and every character that had a traceable birthday. And I had just done Harry's.

So in case...

    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...

Ok, yesterday I answered a pergunta in the "Answers" area asking "Do you think Ginny is a Mary Sue?" and it got me thinking. Here is my answer.

No, I do not think Ginny Weasley is a Mary Sue. For one, I don't think she is "too ostentatious for the audience's taste, or that the author seems to favor the character too highly." In my point of view, other than the fact that Ginny ends up with Harry, she really doesn't seem to be favoured. I don't know very much about J.K. Rowling as a person, but again, apart from the fact that they are both female, nothing jumps out at me that would indicate that...

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)

link

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...

 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.

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...

There are many, many reasons to amor Hermione Granger. She is a wonderfully written character and a great role model. However, lately I've been seeing a lot of people say things to the extent of "i amor hermione because she's sooooo pretty!!!!! she's the most beautiful girl in hogwarts and i amor her!!!!!" It seems harmless, and it probably is. But I have a problem with it.

People tend to obsess over her appearances, when Hermione herself would probably scoff at such things. Hermione was never one to care all that much about physical appearances; she was far mais concerned over mais important...

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 :)

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...
