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...

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,...

Compared to some of the other dynamics in the Harry Potter, Sirius and Bellatrix's was rarely in direct spotlight, whether in the libri o the movies. They have, however, one of the most interesting and intriguingly unappreciated relationships in the series.

First of all, their parallels -- they were both prisoners of Azkaban for over ten years, making them both sullen, depressed, haunted individuals who are overly familiar with battling for sanity and hope against the dementor's oppression. The difference? Sirius pulled through, Bella gave in. Still, even if Sirius was strong enough to avoid...

*The Great Hall was built for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in 2000 and was used as a key set for six più films. (The Great Hall does not appear in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1).

*The House Points Counter was rarely seen on screen, but it is rumoured that when it was first built it caused a national shortage of Indian glass beads.

*The spectacular Great Hall includes the costumes of students from each Hogwarts house plus two large tables which are set for dinner; at the superiore, in alto of the room is the teachers' tavolo where the Hogwarts Professors sat. Iconic scenes such as the Yule Ball and the Battle of Hogwarts were filmed here.
"MUM, te bought the 'No pulp' kind again..." I grumble, grimacing with my first sip of arancia, arancio juice.

"Sorry, dear. I always forget which kind te like," she apologizes.

"It's 'SOME pulp'," I remind her for what must be the millionth time.

She scribbles something on the grocery lista tacked to the inside of the silverware cupboard door.

"Run out and get the mail?" She asks.

I run my thumb up the stack of napkins that sits on the table. "Do I have to?"

She turns around and gives me a look that usually means No-dear-you-don't-have-to-but-if-you-don't-I'm-going-to-buy-more-no-pulp-orange-juice....

Bill and Charlie were still at home, they'd taken a holiday from work. Percy was still in his room stressing over his new Prefect badge. He was polishing it over and over again. Ginny was in the cucina with mum and dad was out at work. I decided to finally go back downstairs. I was sat in my room Leggere my new magazine, 'Tips on how to Win Quiddich', thinking about all of the ways I could get onto a local team if I could learn how to fly. "Ron, get down here now!" Mum shouted up the stairs. I heard footsteps heading up the first flight of stairs, and threw my book under my bed. I ran to my...

I woke up to them standing above me. Them. The shadows in my bedroom. Unidentifiable shadows. Death eaters? Dementors? I didn't know. What I did know is that they were ripping me from my bed. These figures. Taking me away. I thrashed and shrieked. They persisted. I continued shrieking. Screaming. For Harry. For anyone within hearing distance. No one came. Harry didn't wake. Who were these things? People? Creatures? They wanted me. But why? Why was...

- Hagrid is detto to be twice the height of a human, but in the films he is mentioned to be 8 feet 6 inches.

- Crookshanks is no ordinary cat, as he is half-kneazle. Kneazles are intelligent cat-like creatures who can sniff out suspicious characters, and if a kneazle takes a liking to a witch o wizard they make excellent pets.

- Members of the Order of the Phoenix are the only wizards who know how to communicate using their patronuses.

- Dementors don't breed. They grow where there's decay, like fungus.

- The tatoos on Sirus Black's body are borrowed from Russian prison gangs. These are to...

Chapter 1

There I was, in a chimney, squished inbetween two of my brothers, Fred and Ron. We were at the Dursleys, and we had gotten there da Floo Powder. Evidently, they had the fireplace blocked, and now my dad, my brothers, and myself were jammed together.

"Ow! sposta over!"
"You move!"

Conversation was going on below me, and i was trying to wiggle down to hear. All of a sudden, I heard a BANG, and I came tumbling out, along with everyone.
From underneath George's legs, I could see Dad outstretching his hand for a handshake with a short,...

The new students’ arrival was met with tumultuous applause. But none of the unsorted 11 anno olds heard a thing. For there was only one thought in their mind, where will I be sorted? Then Professor Lovegood detto in a silky voice “the sorting hat is ready.” Every one of the 11-year-olds face’s looked fretful. As they filed in, a very old and molding looking hat with a tear at the brim was placed on a sgabello and the tear opened up like a mouth and it broke into song.
“ A thousand years o più fa when I was newly sewn, there lived four wizards of renown, whose names are still well known:...

Here I am, in an isolated letto wing at St. Mungo’s . And for once, interviewing ( not quite the right way ) Rita skeeter who apparently isnt in the best of condition to reveal about the extraordinary interview with the “MAN WHO LET THE BOY LIVE” and the “EATEN da DEATH” crowd there . da hearing this we can easily guess why she has turned up at St.Mungo’s.

Fred and George, however, found all this very funny. They went out of their way to march ahead of Harry down the corridors, shouting, "Make way for the Heir of Slytherin, seriously evil wizard coming through..."


Harry learned quickly not to feel to sorry for the gnomes. He decided to just drop the first one just over the hedge, but the gnome, sensing weakness, sank his razor sharp teeth into Harry's finger and he had a hard job shaking it off until -
"Wow, Harry - that must have been fifty feet!"

Book 6 Mistakes
NOTE: Many of these book mistakes were corrected in later versions, so the mistake may not appear in your HP book.
* The cover illustration portrays Dumbledore with a normal-looking right hand, but the text makes it clear that it is Dumbledore's right hand and arm (p. 58) that are blackened and shriveled (p. 48), and that are still in such condition at the precise moment depicted da the cover illustration (p. 567). Thanks, Brent!

This is a fanfiction about Lord Voldemort returning as a ghost, and he meets Albus Potter. I'm still working on it, but here's chapter one! And please don't steal my idea!

The Dark Lord tightened his hold on the Elder Wand. This was it; he would finally kill Harry Potter. “Avada Kedavra!” he shouted, aiming the spell at Potter. A green light burst from the tip of his wand, but at that moment, Potter had said, “Expelliarmus!” And so green and red collided. There was a flash, and Lord Voldemort fell. His spell had backfired, failing him; he was dead.
The successivo thing he knew, everywhere around...

Hello! This is my first story. Enjoy.

I looked out at the water, making ripples with my hand. A magic school was on my way.
"Get back inside, your list's here!" my dad called from the house. He was the The God of the Sea, Poseidon.
I went back inside and picked up a paper, and it read:

Dear Percy Jackson,

1. Some più minor characters, such as Dobby, were only included in the films where their roles were pivotal. Others such as Peeves were excluded entirely. The development of minor relationships such as Tonks/Lupin and Bill/Fleur was cut.

2. The locations for Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione's first kisses were both altered in the films. Some smaller scenes between the couples were also changed o added in. Scenes such as Harry and Hermione dancing in Deathly Hallows were added to please their fan and to create più of an impression of a Amore triangle.
