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...

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,...

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...

5. Ginny-For starters, I Amore her beautiful red hair. It's so gorgeous. I Amore it when she has that white fiore in her hair, it's pretty. I also Amore her eyes. She's just stunning. She has an amazing smile. She is such a natural beauty.

4. McGonagall-Now, before te start calling me weird, let me explain. Have te seen her as a young woman? She's gorgeous! I Amore her big eyes, they're so amazing. She has gorgeous hair.

To start I would like to say that I am not posting this to be mean o start any fights. I'm posting this because a lot of people ask me why I don't like her o 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 articolo 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...

Here is yet another Ron-centric one shot. He deserves something dedicated to him on his birthday.

Ever wondered what was going on inside our preferito Ginger's head when he sacrificed himself in the PS. This is my version.

DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT BLONDE, ENGLISH, MILLIONAIRE o A WOMAN. SO ITS PRETTY CLEAR I DO NOT OWN HARRY POTTER.

English is not my first language. Not even my second. So, I apologize for grammar and spelling mistakes.

Read and comment.

 Bellatrix Lestrange
Bellatrix Lestrange
I have been on the Harry Potter spot for a while now and I constantly find myself getting asked "why do te like Bellatrix?" So I decided to type up this article. Thank te 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...

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 te say HOT? And he's totally sexy when he sparkles!

So? Hotness has absolutely no correlation to recitazione ability. He was also in Harry Potter first.


2. Taylor Lautner, I mean, have te SEEN those muscles?

NOT HOT. Strange nose, closed up eyes and no recitazione ability. That is just my personal opinion. As I said, hotness has no correlation to recitazione ability.

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

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.

Since we launched Pottermore, our one million Beta users have dato us lots of amazing feedback, and we’ve been collecting their thoughts and commenti so that we can make Pottermore the best experience it can be before it opens to everyone.

Chamber of Memories
October 31, 1992
    Minerva McGonagall sat gazing out of her bedroom window into the rain swept grounds of Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was nearly midnight, but Minerva was unable to sleep; the event of the evening were still playing in her head. "The Chamber Of Secrets has been opened; enemies of the heir, beware". The image of the ominous message on the bacheca seemed to be etched on the insides of her eyelids. She shivered at the thought of the chamber being opened again. Memories began to resurface, memories that she had long tried...

"Oh, sposta 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 te see, a couple months fa I came across a website called "Always Astrology". It provides a descrizione 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 giorno of teaching, and she felt a small jolt of satisfaction as she passed da the Gryffindor tavolo on her way to the staff table. It was not that she had ever disliked sharing meals with her fellow...
