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 lebih 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 artikel because I have seen many komentar 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 menulis this is the question: ¿Have anda 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 membaca komentar like those.

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

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,...

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

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


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

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

When people tell me that James “grew out of bullying”, I always respond with the canonically sound FACTS that James Potter was 21 when he died, 20 when Harry was born and *19* when Harry was conceived. He had *no time* to change out of his bullying bullshit personality towards Severus. Just take a look around anda and see if anda can name half a dozen of your under-21 male friends/acquaintances who anda think would make such an awesome hubby and father right now (oh, and don’t discount the bullies anda know who pick on people “just because they exist”). And when we keep telling anda that...

Credit: wikihow.com


1. Become an extremely powerful witch atau wizard. This will take years of study and sacrifice which lie beyond the scope of a WikiHow article. As a general guide anda should not attempt to create a horcrux until anda can cast non-verbal killing curses.

2. Locate an object of extreme significance to you. An emotional attachment to the object will aid the process and make it easier on your body and soul.

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

As many people here on the Harry Potter spot know, Sirius Black is my favorit character. He has always been and always will be. Some people, along with me, cinta 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 membaca 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...

"Harry Potter's girl trouble
The world of everyone's favorit kid wizard is a place where boys come first.
By Christine Schoefer

Four factors made me go out and buy the Harry Potter books: Their impressive lead on the bestseller lists, parents' raves about Harry Potter's magical ability to turn kids into passionate readers, my daughters' clamoring and the mile-long waiting lists at the public library. Once I opened "The Sorcerer's...

    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.

I started membaca 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 cinta Harry Potter so much is J.K Rowling really transports anda to a different world with her style of writing. There is so much detail and realism in her menulis that whenever I read the buku I am compeletly engrossed in the Harry Potter universe. Another thing I really cinta about the buku is the characters are really believable...

oleh now everyone probably knows I have a crazy thing for Bellatrix and think she's the most wonderful thing that has happened to the HP series. But there are some huge differences between book Bella and movie Bella. But gosh dammit, I cinta them both! Here's why.

Book Bellatrix

Book Bella for me is everything I look for in a villainess. She's ruthless, she's wild, and she's got no mercy and no qualms about her bad deeds.While movie Bellatrix does share this trait I feel as though she has her moments of guilt. I say this because I really don't know how else to interpret this;

Care for a Bat Bogey Hex? Anyone?
Greetings Fellows! I'm Isabellagirl033 and I've written this artikel to clear the confusion that many of anda seem to make. I've seen and heard many people classifying Ginny Weasley as a Mary Sue character. Yikes!
Jk Rowling has made the character of Ginny Weasley a very complex one. She evolves from a shy, little girl to a fiery and outspoken redhead. The problem is that Ginny has so many positive characteristics that they overshadowed her flaws.

Ginny indeed has many flaws etc.
* In the Chamber of Secrets, Ron himself says that "Ginny never shuts up, normally" meaning that one of her flaws is...

As I did with my artikel like this in the Once spot, Imma do state the song name and pull lyrics from each song that just really remind me Bellatrix and how berkata lyric reminds me of her. For once the daftar actually is in order from what I think suits her most to least.


1. Be My Friend oleh One Eye'd Doll: The secara keseluruhan, keseluruhan story of the song talks of a serial killer who doesn't understand why she can't seem to make friends. The chorus goes as the following; Serial killers are people too if anda take away the voices I'm just like anda I'll hack anda up and bury anda in my yard but why does making friends...

On the night that Sirius died, after the battle at the Ministry of Magic at the end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore showed Harry, with the aid of his pensieve, the complete lost Prophecy:

Born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh bulan dies... and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not... and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives... the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will...
