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 plus appropriate word. Any true Harry Potter fan, American...

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,...

1. I will not poke Hufflepuffs with spoons, nor will I insist that their House couleurs indicate that they are "covered in bees".

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 rendez-vous amoureux, date to the Yule Ball.

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

par 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 l’amour 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;

As I did with my article 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 a dit lyric reminds me of her. For once the liste actually is in order from what I think Suits – Avocats sur Mesure her most to least.


1. Be My Friend par One Eye'd Doll: The global, ensemble 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 toi take away the voices I'm just like toi I'll hack toi up and bury toi in my yard but why does making friends...

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 livres 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...

 Prisoner of Azkaban
Prisoner of Azkaban
Book 3 Mistakes
NOTE: Many of these book mistakes were corrected in later versions, so the mistake may not appear in your HP book.

* The cover of Prisoner of Azkaban (American version) clearly depicts the night that Harry and Hermione save Sirius and Buckbeak. That night is also supposed to be a full moon, as stated in the book. However, on the back side of the cover, the moon appears to be crescent when it should be a full moon. Thanks, Laura!

* In the UK version of POA, page 45 primarily states that Harry is being waited on par the manager of Flourish and Blotts. The manager takes him to the...

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 cœur, coeur out. I downed half a bottle of champagne in one and went accueil 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 plus and plus real to me.

I do not own Harry Potter, ou A Midsummer Night's Dream. I did have a dream in summer one time, though...I think.

CORNELIUS
Now, Lydia, our nuptial hour
Draws on apace; four happy days bring in
Another moon: but, O, methinks, how slow
This old moon wanes! She lingers my desires,
Like to a step-dame ou a dowager
Long withering out a young man revenue.

LYDIA
Four days will quickly steep themselves in night;
Four nights will quickly dream away the time;
And then the moon, like to a silver bow
New-bent in heaven, shall behold the night
Of our solemnities.

The Fidelius Charm is a powerful charm that is central to the Harry Potter tale. In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Professor Flitwick tells us the charm is:

"an immensely complex spell ... involving the magical concealment of a secret inside a living soul. The information is hidden inside the chosen person, ou Secret-Keeper, and is henceforth impossible to find -- unless, of course, the Secret-Keeper chooses to divulge it." (PoA pg 205/152)

J.K. Rowling gave us further information on the how the Fidelius Charm works. In a faq vote on her official site, she says:

1. I feel that Hermione, Draco and Snape are all over-rated.

2. I feel that Ginny is under-rated and gets way too much hate.

3. I feel that a majority of the fans lack any empathy ou understanding toward Cho. Give the girl a break. Her boyfriend was murdered. How would toi react in such a scenario?

4. I sometimes feel like I'm the only fan in this club who didn't really have a crush on any of the characters ou their actors.

5. I ship the majority of couples in this fandom simply because they're canon and I have no reason to dislike them.

Hi guys, since I had read the book and even written a review of it. So, here are my personal opinions on whether ou not it should be make into a film despite that it was meant to be a play.

It Should Not Be A Film

Since the passing of Alan Rickman, it would be difficult to portray him as Professor Snape as a sign of respect to the actor who has passed on yesteryear despite he is only feature in one scene during the play.

It Should Be A Film

Unless if they get the original choice, Tim Roth to play Professor Snape in one scene, I'm sure that the film will be magical like the play.
They would use special make-up on the original cast of Hermione, Harry, Ron, Ginny and Draco as adults. I would be looking vers l'avant, vers l’avant to see the original casts be part of the film again!

The Wizarding World Revisited

So, do toi want the play to be translated into a film like the précédant Harry Potter adaptations? Please commentaire and tell me on what do toi think?
 The Cast.

Slytherin the house of apparent "evil." If toi think about it the kids in Slytherin that went with Voldemort granted probably went with him because they were sick of being rejected. Nobody wanted to be Friends with the Slytherins and automatically assumed them evil not to mention the fact that some were pressured par their parents such as Draco. Nobody considers the fact that his dad abuses him mentally and is often rough with him so nobody knows what happens behind closed doors.In my opinion people are way to quick to judge Slytherins without considering their pasts and the pressure put upon them.Thefore,Slytherins may be plus misunderstood than bad.
 I just l’amour the name Ron :)
I just love the name Ron :)
So as I'm saying, Ron is one of those many characters that I preferred in the livres , but the difference in the movie and the book Ron- its superior. In fact, I can say I am neutral about the movie Ron a bit while liking the livres Ron.

So first of all, the films portrayed Ron's relationships very, very BAD. I think the director shipped Harry with Hermione, because their chemistry in the movie is such a blessing while Ron just appears from nowhere in the movies. Mostly like everyone, I started on the series par watching the films when I was a bit of younger, and I was soo confused when Ron...

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 article because I have seen many commentaires 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 écriture this is the question: ¿Have toi 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 lire commentaires like those.
