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 più appropriate word. Any true Harry Potter fan, American...

If not little known, at least little remembered. ;) I've collected here eleven (in my opinion) of the most interesting and useful ones. Plus my commenti on some of them.

1. There is no such thing as a pureblood family. Every wizarding family has a muggle o a few among them. Some just choose to attraversare, croce them over in their family albero and pretend they don't exist and instead claim themselves as purebloods.

^I can see Blacks and Malfoys doing that. But makes me wonder why were the Crouches noted as purebloods then, as evidently the father and son were not passionate about purity of blood....

As many people here on the Harry Potter spot know, Sirius Black is my preferito character. He has always been and always will be. Some people, along with me, Amore him. Some hate him. Some don't have much of an opinion on him. I've decided that I want to explain why I like Sirius, and how I came to like him.

I saw HP 1-6 Film before Leggere any of the books. I remember loving Sirius, even before I read the books. I believe the reason I liked him at the time was the relationship he had with Harry. Harry never really had a father figure, and Sirius was the first family he had. I must have thought...

da now I feel like most people know about and have formed opinions on Delphi and the details surrounding her birth. I know I definitely have and I thought I'd share them.

I'll just put it right out there; hell yeah I'm glad it happened! I know that there are a lot of people who hated the fact that Bellatrix had a kid--and believe me I do understand why, I'll get to that in a bit. But I personally was really excited. I saw the leaked script back in June (or so) and I hoped quite feverishly that it wasn't a hoax. Because the Lord knows that I'm happy that Bellatrix's legacy will live on through...

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 dato a piece of clothing, their freedom would be like an insult. However,...

 the Fat Friar
the Fat Friar
The Fat Friar was a wizard, who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in his youth, and was Sorted into Hufflepuff. He was a jolly man and very forgiving. He devoted his life to religion and, after his death, returned to the school as the resident ghost of Hufflepuff House.
As a ghost, the Friar was pearly-white and slightly transparent, like all other ghosts. He had short brown hair, which he wore with a small tonsure. At first sight a monk, he was dressed in a habit held da a rope belt. He was fat and short, and usually carried a mug with him.
The Friar was very cheerful and welcoming,...

I was handing out caramelle for Halloween. A little boy dressed up as Harry Potter came da and as he was walking up the driveway he dropped his wand. I told him he dropped his wand and he looks at me and shouted “ACCIO WAND!” and twitched his hand (which had a string attached to the wand and to his finger) and his wand came shooting up to his hand. He got the rest of my Halloween caramelle and 5 dollars.

Today I got stuck in traffic on my way home from work. Usually I hate traffic.. However, the furgone, van in front of me was mostrare Harry Potter on their TV screen. I Amore traffic today.

 MARNIE!
MARNIE!
Hi guys, I'm a big fan of Harry Potter and I remember watching Halloweentown. So, I'm going to be Scrivere 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 più 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 o Marnie?

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

*DISCLAIMER* I did not come up with any of these, I found them all online and put them together...the links which i used are cited in the description. So let's not waste any più time and get started with the 50 random Harry Potter Facts!!

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

1. Ask him why he 'doesn't have such a cool scar?'
2. Laugh at him.
3. Wake him up da Canto spiaggia 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 te 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.

I decided to write this articolo because I have seen many commenti 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 Scrivere this is the question: ¿Have te 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 Leggere commenti like those.

The thing is that in that pick, James...

01. Before Tonks died, she saw Remus fall down only a couple feet away.
She ran over to him, and as Bellatrix fired the Killing Curse, she whispered in his ear, “Wotcher, Remus”, with her hand falling into his after she’d been hit.

02. Scorpius Malfoy and Rose Weasley got together in their 5th year.

03. Dean's son married Seamus' daughter.
Dean and Seamus were so proud and saw it as a way to be brothers.

04. Severus wrote many letters to Lily saying how he loved her.
He never sent one. If she was happy, then he could get along.

05. Ron was never a romantic. But he tried everyday to mostra Hermione...

I started Leggere the hp series when I was 12.
My grandma bought me the 1st book for Christmas.
As soon as I finished it I instantly loved it and re-read it about 4 times! I became obsessed with collecting the entire series and eventually obtained all seven volumes. Why I Amore Harry Potter so much is J.K Rowling really transports te to a different world with her style of writing. There is so much detail and realism in her Scrivere that whenever I read the libri I am compeletly engrossed in the Harry Potter universe. Another thing I really Amore about the libri is the characters are really believable...
