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,...

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.

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

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...

WANDS

1. Daniel Radcliffe wore out 60-70 wands during the making of the Harry Potter films.
2. Every wand that anda see in any of the Harry Potter films is created on-site. No two wands are alike…not even the Weasley twins’!
3. Wands are 13-15 inch long and haven’t changed in length, so the actors have had to grow into them over the years.
4. Dumbledore’s wand was a very elaborate design, even though its significance of being the Elder Wand was far from being known when made.

PROPS

5. Radcliffe has been through 160 pairs of glasses during the shooting of all the Harry Potter films
6. Forty...

avatar is the highest-grossing film of all-time, with a global gross of almost $2.8 billion, and ten films have grossed in excess of $1 billion. All the films presented here have had a theatrical run in the last twenty years, and films that have not played during this period do not appear in the chart due to ticket-price inflation, population size and ticket purchasing trends not being considered. Gone with the Wind—first released in 1939—has earned $3.3 billion globally when adjusted to contemporary prices, making it the best all-time performer at the box office.[10] The most represented...

George looked up in time to see Malfoy pretending to faint with terror again.
"That little git," he berkata calmly. "He wasn't so cocky last night when the dementors were down our end of the train. Came running into our compartment, didn't he, Fred?"
"Nearly wet himself," berkata Fred, with a contemptuous glance at Malfoy.

Percy had what were possibly the least helpful words of comfort.

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 hari of teaching, and she felt a small jolt of satisfaction as she passed oleh the Gryffindor meja on her way to the staff table. It was not that she had ever disliked sharing meals with her fellow...

Amortentia - "Amor" is the Latin word for "love," and "tentia" is derived from "tentare," which means "the handling of," "the making of an attempt," atau "the attack on." Hence, "the handling of love," "making an attempt to love," atau "the attack on love."

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,...

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

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

3. Luna-I cinta Luna's looks! She's stunning! I cinta her long, blonde hair. I also adore her eyes, not to big and not too small. I cinta her lobak earrings, they compliment her...

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