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,...

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)

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,...

 The Chamber of Scerets
The Chamber of Scerets
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...

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...

A one-shot Harry Potter fan fiction..

What was Ron thinking when he received his prefect badge? What if Molly never showed up when Hermione was 'trying' to congratulate him?

It is from Ron's POV. Set is before 5th anno when he received his prefect badge. Some actions will be similar to what JKR wrote but some will be different.What would've been Ron's reaction if Molly never showed up? End will be different from what JKR wrote.

Is It Worth Crying?



Prefect Badge?

He's shocked beyond point when he came to know that Harry hadn't been made prefect; but what he was feeling now can't be...

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...

Q.) If Harry and Edward had to duel against each other using their own abilities, who do te think would win?

Meyer:

A.) Oh gosh, don’t get mad at me but I don’t know what a wizard fight looks like in her (JKRowling's) head. I know what it looks like in the Film so I have to go on what it looks like in the movies. But here is the thing, if it’s possible for a human to anatra a wand being shot at them; a vampire is not going to have a problem. The fight would be over in .01 secondi because Edward would be across the room snapping his (Harry's) neck. He would be done. He wouldn’t even have time to say his spell word. I’m sorry but Edward would win that one.

2. No matter how good a fake Australian accent I can do, I will not imitate Steve Irwin during Care of Magical Creatures class.

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.

5. I will not go to class skyclad.

6. The Giant Squid is not an appropriate data to the Yule Ball.

7. I will not use Umbridge's quill to write, "I told te I was hardcore".

*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?"

J.K. Rowling goes Beyond the Epilogue
[info from various sources including MSNBC and USA Today]

J.K. Rowling has announced in new interviews with the Today mostra on NBC TV today (July 26) that the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was vague on purpose.

She detto it was her desire for it to be "nebulous," something "poetic," and that she wanted the readers to feel as if they were looking at Platform 9 3/4 through the mist, unable to make out exactly who was there and who was not.

She admitted her original epilogue was "a lot più detailed," including the name of every child born to...
