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 더 많이 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 링그 which i used are cited in the description. So let's not waste any 더 많이 time and get started with the 50 랜덤 Harry Potter Facts!!

1) Hermione's last name was going to be Puckle.
2) Hedwig was played 의해 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) 프레드 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,...

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 또는 start any fights. I'm posting this because a lot of people ask me why I don't like her 또는 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 기사 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...

Chapter 1    
The Wand


“No, Dad, please!” I screamed into my hands, my eyes full of tears. Hogwarts wasn’t a normal school, not that my family was normal, but I didn’t want to have any part in it. First we had to 옮기기 all the way from New York to England, then a letter came telling me I’d been accepted at a school “for witchcraft and wizardry,” a boarding school, none the less.
    My dad held me on his lap. Being eleven, I was a bit old for that, but he’d let me anyway, “just this once,” he’d said.

"Watch out!"

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

I tossed and turned around in 침대 as I tried to fall asleep. It was the 일 before I left for Hogwarts for the new school year. I don’t know whether it was excitement 또는 just that I had forgotten to pack something that kept me from falling asleep. I had packed all my robes, other clothes, 책 and all other stuff the 일 before so that I wouldn’t have to participate in a scavenger hunt with Mum in the morning.
I sighed and turned over in 침대 again. The only 출처 of light I had was the faint light of the crescent moon outside, meaning I couldn’t really see much.
I closed my eyes but sleep...

1. I will not poke Hufflepuffs with spoons, nor will I insist that their House 색깔 indicate that they are "covered in
bees".
2. No matter how good a fake Australian accent I can do, I will not imitate Steve Irwin during Care of Magical Creatures

3. "I've heard every possible joke about Oliver Wood's name" is not a challenge.
4. Putting up Doug Henning posters in Filch's office is not appropriate.

Ron Weasley. The sixth child in the Weasley family. The best friend of Harry Potter and Hermione Granger. In 사랑 with Hermione. Essential to the Golden Trio. Ron has always been overlooked; 의해 his peers in the books, 의해 the films, 의해 the fans. He has been overshadowed 의해 his siblings, 의해 Harry, and 의해 Hermione. However, he is essential to the story, and is just as important to the trio as Harry and Hermione.

Ron is the sixth sibling of seven. His older brothers have all been extremely accomplished. Bill was a prefect, Head Boy, and is the eldest (which gives him much attention 의해 default)....

Dobby died in March of 1998. He was killed when we was rescuing Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ollivander, Luna and Griphook the Goblin from the Death Eaters.

Dobby was a house-elf. They are servants to wizards. Magic ties them to their Master, so they must listen and do what their Master wants them to do. If they go against their masters commands, they must punish themselves with self-harm. The only way a house-elf can become free is if their master gives them a piece of clothing. Most house-elves would be devastated if they were given a piece of clothing, their freedom would be like an insult. However,...

Sorcerer's Stone
The Mirror of Erised: Erised is Desire spelled backward, 또는 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, 옮기기 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.

    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.

I stumbled over a discussion 포럼 topic "JKR: Canon 또는 fanon" on another HP site and I have ended up into debates related to the topic, so I decided to write this opinion 기사 - this isn't about anyone 또는 anything in particular about the 책 regardless of the examples. The point in them is for the general matters (:

"What all is canon to you? What do 당신 personally keep, tweak 또는 disregard in your head?"

To me...

Canon is the author's image. This of course means also whatever she announces anywhere outside the books, is canon. She wrote her view into the books's content and it's bound to...

I do not own Harry Potter, 또는 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 또는 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 had a thought...

I'm sure I'm not the only one who is wondering how on earth Harry, Ron and Hermione could destroy all those horcruxes when Dumbledore, one of the greatest wizards ever almost died trying to destroy two of them.

And since Dumbledore and Harry really aren't the only ones who know about Voldemort's horcruxes, its possible that RAB has actually done the work for them without Voldemort realising it. Its possible that he actually destroyed all the horcruxes besides Nagini but somehow didn't live to tell anyone.

So the only horcrux that they would have to destroy would be the snake. Remember Voldemort only made Nagini a horcrux in Goblet of Fire. So she is at least one horcrux left that we know still exists.

I can't see Harry, Ron and Hermione managing to destroy 4 horcruxes without one of them dying 또는 getting seriously injured. That could happen too however...

CAN'T WAIT TILL IT COMES OUT! 5 DAYS TO GO!
