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,...

A rare and natural beauty
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...

I've been thinking about this for a while.You see the first time I read Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban I was confused.Peter Pettigrew was sorted in Gryffindor - the house of bravery and loyalty.Peter was ready to forget about his friendship so easily.But now I feel that he was a real Gryffindor.He was loyal to He-who-must-not-be-named , he was brave enough to cut his own hand , lived as a tikus so many years...
I'm not mad at him.He was just a boy and he was afraid.


It annoys a bit when people say he didn't diserve to be a Gryffindor.
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 buku 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...

Actually finishing it was the most remarkable feeling I've ever had... [I felt] euphoria, devastated... I was in a hotel room on my own, sobbing my jantung out. I downed half a bottle of champagne in one and went halaman awal with mascara all over my face.

On finishing her seventh and last Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows.

I sat and thought for four (delayed train) hours, and all the details bubbled up in my brain, and this scrawny, black-haired, bespectacled boy who didn't know he was a wizard became lebih and lebih real to me.

Hi! Its me, a major elsa fan. But, today I am gonna write about Harry Potter film which I watched like last bulan so it is gonna be amazing :) Now, we can start <3

I like...
The houses

I think the Harry Potter houses are all amazing and I cinta them all. However, they can be confusing as people think, "In which house I am?" Anyway I really cinta the houses though I think people in Gryffindor could be selected different.


I dislike...
The hats choices.

The hat chooses Draco Malfoy as a Slytherin, that is brilliant. But I really don't think Neville Longbottom should be in Gryffindor. Just forget...

Harry Potter married Ginny Weasley. They had three children, James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily Luna. He became head of the Auror's Department under Kingsley Shacklebolt.

Ginny Weasley played quidditch for the Holyhead Harpies. After deciding to raise a family, she retired and became Senior Quidditch correspondent at the Daily Prophet.

Hermione Granger married to Ron Weasely and had two children, Rose and Hugo. Hermione went back to Hogwarts and sat her NEWTS before working for Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures and helping house elves. She then moved to the Department...

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,...

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...

So I've been thinking about this a lot lately...I discussed this with a friend a few months ago. We were talking about how many Christian groups (as anda well know) have condemned HP as anti-Christian. In fact, I believe that the Harry Potter story is actually a symbolization of the Christian religion.
Note: This is entirely my opinion and is not meant as "Christian propaganda" atau to offend anyone in the slightest. It is merely my opinion! :)

Harry Potter is Jesus. Whaaaaat?!

Yesus was born in Bethlehem, a tiny town literally in the middle...

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...

At my uni we've been studying the way gender and sexism shapes the education curriculum.

This was an artikel we were actually diberikan to read and debat about in a seminar:

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.
    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...

I'm basing this review mostly on J.K. Rowling's official words and a little on the books's content. I write this regarding how the pertanyaan of the educating style is often pondered and some even think "all pure-bloods were halaman awal schooled".

The purity of one's blood is not relevant to how a child is schooled before Hogwarts. With the exception of families like Malfoys atau Blacks who would probably die before sending their kids amongst muggles to learn anything. But whatever few pure-blood families there were left - as far as I see - most of them are not known to be like those two, but have a respectable...

"Who wants to be in Slytherin? I think I'd leave, wouldn't you?" - James Potter (DH)
Imagine being in Hufflepuff, I think I'd leave, wouldn't you?" - Draco Malfoy (PS)
Similar yet different!
Quite ironic isn't it? Father of the hero and arch nemisis of the hero have the same line. I don't think it's a coincidence that both James and Draco quote a similar line about a house they were prejudiced against. Both boys were brought up as the only sons in rich pureblood families. Both were undoubtedly spoilt. Both were definitely raised with a house prejudice. Both were definitely arrogant, attention-seeking...
