Sirius Black III:

- In the film version of Order of the Phoenix during the battle at the Department of Mysteries, Sirius accidentally calls Harry James, even though this mix-up never occurred in the book.
- Also during the battle at the Department of Mysteries Sirius was hit da a Killing Curse in the movie and survived for about 6 seconds, but in the book he was hit da an unnamed curse and fell into the veil.
- J.K. Rowling described Sirius as a "bit of a loose canon" and a "case of arrested development" and she also once described him as "brave, loyal, reckless, embittered and slightly unbalanced...

Obviously it's not in billions. And magic is rare.

So, how rare might it be?
First I'll address some research arguments I found on link and gave some though to.

They seemed to conclude that there'd be approximately 300.000 to 1.000.000 magical people on the entire planet.
Basing on, for example:

”The room for 100.000 at the World Cup.”
Speculated to give some idea of the total number of magical people in the world...I guess because it's the World Cup and witches and wizards don't have televisions...This stadion room was believed to be for approx. 1/3 o 1/10 of the total world population of magical...

After the sorting had finish, and McGonagall took the hat away, Ron and Harry grinned at each other. "Food, finally we get to eat." Ron grumbled. "That took way too long."

Hermione kicked him for what seemed like the millionth time today. "Ron! te know the sorting's più important!" She scolded him.

"Nope it's not even close. I'm starving." Ron shot back.

The two contiuned to argue about it. "Do they fight a lot?" I askde Harry.

Harry shrugged. "Understatement." He told me. "It's like World War III when they do."

Ron and Hermione reminded me of Lisa and Jack, two of my muggle Friends back at...

Severus Snape,the missing piece of puzzle of the Harry Potter series.He is also perhaps the most crucial character in the whole series and after its completion,many readers' favourite.In short,he is JK Rowling's masterstroke.

But to be frank,even a few days back I could not even sympathize with Severus.In the initial libri he was just a menacing person who gives the trio a hard time without really any proper reason.He was not even a just professor always favoring his own house students.Harry didn't like him either of course & suspected his involvement in the many dark things that start happening...

Sorcerer's Stone
The Mirror of Erised: Erised is Desire spelled backward, o how it would appear in a mirror. Also, the inscription reads "Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi," which read in a mirror reads, "I mostra not your face but your hearts desire." (Thanks, Kathryn)

They could hear footsteps, Filch running as fast as he could towards Peeves' shouts.
"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.

December 1, 1944
    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...

In Chronological Order.

1/1: Intro to the Durlsey's / Leaving Harry on their doorstep
Where better to start then the beginning of the series? The very first chapter, to be precise. Well, it might be 2 chapters, I'm not sure. But I Amore these parts, regardless. It's a great way to kick off the series, because it's told from the point of view of a muggle. So we already can relate with the main character and we can see how wizards incorporate into our everyday lives. Then it goes right to Dumbledore and Mcgonogal discussing the same events from the wizards point of view. It's also pretty good in...

2. Repeatedly ask him whatever happened to "Lav-Lav"?

3. Tell him Krum is coming back.

4. Stare pointedly at his forehead, looking bewildered.

5. . . . And when he asks what you’re looking at, say in a disappointed voice, “I just thought you’d have a scar too, being Harry Potter’s (sigh adoringly then look superior) sidekick and all.”

6. Tell him that Krum is having a welcome back party and everyone is invited.

Ever since J.K Rowling revealed that Dumbledore was gay on October 19th i've had to domanda the fact about why this piece of information became
front page news.
Firstly to put my own opinion out, i personally think that this was a very Ribelle - The Brave thing of JKR to say and whilst i support this statement of hers, it doesn't change my perception of the books. Dumbledore is still the wise, old Headmaster who can make mistakes just like any of us, whom i learned to Amore over the course of the books.
However, there are many fan who now think that they can "never read the libri in the same way again"....

This was a paper I wrote for english class. It's pretty similar to my other Harry Potter soapbox. We had to write about an event that had an impact on our life. Tell me what te think

p.s. i got a 98% on this paper!


When I was a young girl, I was taken on a magical journey full of whimsy and wonder. I hung out with giants, chilled with werewolves, and partied with goblins. I went to classes at an Come d’incanto castello and learned everything I needed to know to become a wizard. But none of this actually happened to me; it happened in a book.

We live mainly the time period the libri and most roleplaying games skip over – generally the 1980s and the beginning of the '90s – we'll see how the sociaty healed from the long war, and what happened when in the summer of 1992 a rumour spread that the Boy Who Lived battled Voldemort inside Hogwarts! How is your character adapting? o is it a muugle who's yet to find out about the secret world of magic? o perhaps a muggle who's absolutely terrified da magic like Mr. Dursley? In addition to the final two years of the first wizarding war, in this RPG muggles and the everyday life and festives...

This text is not meant as critisism to anyone, but only to ponder how much wizards/witches really differ from muggles, and how much of it is only a trick of mind.

In HP related discussions and wikipedia sites, there are often speculations and thoughts painting the magical folk as più different from us than they actually are. I think such habit comes from how the libri give a extreme general image; as if the two groups of people had some sort of basic difference with their entire existance.
And I think that somewhat misleading image comes from how no one of the main character trio grew up in...

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 :)
