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,...

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

This was an article we were actually donné to read and débats about in a seminar:

"Harry Potter's girl trouble
The world of everyone's favori 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...

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".

On a frosty night, in the dungeon of Hogwarts château dwelled a sarcastic, bat-like potions master par the name of Severus Snape.

Most of us here l’amour him, ou at the very least, like him. Though I know I liked him from the very beginning when his sarcasm began to show, I also know many of his dedicated fans hated him at that time - for bullying Harry.
But, we ask ourselves, why did his fans forgive and l’amour him? This question is rather simple and the answer is without a doubt. Because of his unconditional l’amour for Lily. And, we also ask ourselves, why do we find his l’amour for Lily touching? Because...

I rarely ship non-canon couples. But this is one non-canon couple that I absolutely adore. It's not a very populaire one. In fact, it's quite unpopular amongst fans, partially because most people are fairly content with HarryxGinny. Some of the most common non-canon couples concerning these characters are HarryxHermione and NevillexLuna. I honestly cannot stand either coupling, but I'll get into that later. (Remember, this is just my opinion! I have nothing against others who think differently! I totally respect it! Just putting my point of view out there!) So I'm just going...

1. Ask him why he 'doesn't have such a cool scar?'

2. Laugh at him.

3. Wake him up par chant plage Boys songs in his ear. 'Round, round, get around, I get around...'

4. Knit him things. Really hideous things.

5. Give him kangaroo-ears for a month.

6. Smile during Death Eater meetings and say toi taught him everything he knows.

7. Chew bubblegum all the time. Should he address you, your only response will be a series of huge bubbles in quick succession, the last of which will burst everywhere and make a mess.

8. Dance the Funky Chicken.

9. Ask him when was the last time he took a bath.

Scenes such as Harry and Hermione dancing in Deathly Hallows were added to please their fans and to create plus of an impression of a l’amour triangle.

Krum swept Hermione up into the air and grinned as she giggled. "I have never seen a girl that vos as vunderful at dancing as you," he whispered. She blushed bright rose and turned away, but quickly turned back as she noticed Ron's red face looking like it was about to explode. Krum saw this a well, and grabbed her wrist, dancing their way out of the room. Tittering, they made their way to an empty classroom.

"Hermy-own," Krum began. "I must confess, you...

I originally posté this as Kieran, at RPG-D and at my own Harry Potter RPG's forum. But I thought this would be useful for Harry Potter fanfiction writers in general as well.

There are countless ways toi can perfeclly easily bring a muggle main character into any Harry Potter story ou RPG & have a whole world of possibilities open for it - even if they don't know ou never learn about magic's existence! They can know ou learn, of course. Just, they really don't need to in order to be endlessly and colourfully written to a muggle's full potential.

If interested in how I connected my muggle...

Chapter 1    
The Wand

“No, Dad, please!” I screamed into my hands, my eyes full of tears. Hogwarts wasn’t a normal school, not that my family was normal, but I didn’t want to have any part in it. First we had to déplacer all the way from New York to England, then a letter came telling me I’d been accepted at a school “for witchcraft and wizardry,” a boarding school, none the less.
    My dad held me on his lap. Being eleven, I was a bit old for that, but he’d let me anyway, “just this once,” he’d said.
