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,...

Now that Harry Potter is over, I’ve made a little list of the films from my least-favorite to most 가장 좋아하는 (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 코멘트 please :)

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...

At my uni we've been studying the way gender and sexism shapes the education curriculum.

This was an 기사 we were actually given to read and 토론 about in a seminar:

"Harry Potter's girl trouble
The world of everyone's 가장 좋아하는 kid wizard is a place where boys come first.
By Christine Schoefer


Four factors made me go out and buy the Harry Potter books: Their impressive lead on the bestseller lists, parents' raves about Harry Potter's magical ability to turn kids into passionate readers, my daughters' clamoring and the mile-long waiting lists at the public library. Once I opened "The Sorcerer's...

Hi guys, I'm a big 팬 of Harry Potter and I remember watching Halloweentown. So, I'm going to be 글쓰기 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 더 많이 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 또는 Marnie?

Who do 당신 like? If 당신 have anymore similarities between these 2 heroines, let me know!

Were Sirius Black somehow capable of getting some short and other very, very long messages to certain people at the moment he died, this is what he would have said.
To Hermione Granger: I am forever grateful for your intelligence and courage. I truly and literally owe 당신 my soul.
To Ron Weasley: I’m still really sorry I had to break your leg. It was necessary. I’m sure 당신 understand.
To Peter Pettigrew: I will find 당신 in Hell someday. 당신 mark my words.
To Molly Weasley: For all of our differences, 당신 are the closest thing to a mother Harry has ever known. I know 당신 will take good care...

based on Book 4, all credits and respect to J.K Rowling.

Chapter 2

I fell face first onto the carpet.

I heard 프레드 explaining the Ton-Tongue Toffees to Harry, so I went into the kitchen. MY two older brothers, Bill and Charlie, were sitting at the 표, 테이블 with George and Ron.

"Awesome." I said, pointing to Bill's fang earring as I walked by.

"As always." He winked.

I heard a little 'pop' and Dad appeared, yelling at 프레드 for dropping the candy.

"That WASN'T funny, Fred!! What on EARTH did 당신 give that muggle boy?!?!"

"I didn't GIVE him anything, I just DROPPED it. It was his own fault he ate it." He...

This is my first 팬 fiction, so don't be mean to me about it if 당신 don't like it.
It all started, that one fateful day, on my eleventh birthday, when I found out that wizards and witches were REAL, and not just things from fairy tales that your parents told 당신 to amuse you.

I'm Miranda Basil. I have long, dark brown hair, dark green eyes, and a skinny body. I like anime, facebook, and I am a tomboy. I'm muggle-born. Just yesterday, I found out that I was a witch.

That morning was just like any other day, well, except for...

J.K. Rowling, author of the 인기 Harry Potter series, revealed her 가장 좋아하는 scene from the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows novel when she contributed to The Birthday Book, published to mark the 60th birthday of the Prince of Wales, Prince Charles.

An excerpt of the contribution is below:

I admit that, at first glance, the extract I've chosen for The Birthday Book might not seem particularly celebratory, given that it has for its subject my hero walking to what he believes will be certain death. But when Harry takes his last, long walk into the 심장 of the Dark Forest, he is choosing...

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, 또는 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 자주 묻는 질문 투표 on her official site, she says:

I´m really really sorry for this one beeing so long. I´m sorry!! I just felt that i shouldn´t dived it!! this is one of my fav parts!
Hope 당신 like it and please leave comments.

I felt scared, i wasn´t sure of what happened, if it was true 또는 not. The Augurey´s scream remained in my head… it never had this effect on me, it was so strong that I really felt like I was falling into the darkness, dying, as if I were sleep forever.
I went to the Owls Tower, my 가장 좋아하는 place in Hogwarts. My owl, Maugrim, wasn´t there as always, I never understood why he´s different from the other owls, during...

wo of my most prized possessions are a pair of small notebooks, which contain my very first scribblings about Harry Potter. Much of what is written in them was never used in the series, although it is startling to come across the odd line of dialogue that subsequently made it, verbatim, to publication.

In one of the 책 is a list of forty names of students in Harry's 년 (including Harry, Ron and Hermione), all allocated houses, with small symbols beside each name depicting each boy 또는 girl's parentage.

While I imagined that there would be considerably 더 많이 than forty students in each year...

First of all I should say this are the deaths of the movies, because 더 많이 people died in the 영화 then 책 such as Lavender. I was so sad nearly about all characters! So I'm reviewing their sadnesses and remembering, listing them.


Hedwig is Harry's loyal owl which was a present from Hagrid to Harry for his birthday. He died in Harry Potter and the deathly hallows while everybody drank a potion to look like Harry. The death eaters kicked him out of the way and he fell down from all the meters, never be sawn again. He has a wildly underrated death and Harry shouted "Hedwig," but never...

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....

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...

I 사랑 Draco Malfoy so much! And we all know that he has a knack for good comebacks. So, these are some things 당신 can say 또는 do when he insults you. Let's get this list started!

1.If he calls 당신 a Mudblood, say "At least I'm no bleached blonde."
2. If he makes fun of 당신 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--...

Hi everyone,
I'm not really a Harry Potter fan, but 당신 see, a couple months 이전 I came across a website called "Always Astrology". It provides a 설명 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...
