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...

*DISCLAIMER* I did not come up with any of these, I found them all online and put them together...the liens which i used are cited in the description. So let's not waste any plus time and get started with the 50 aléatoire Harry Potter Facts!!

1) Hermione's last name was going to be Puckle.
2) Hedwig was played par a male in the movies.
3) If a Muggle were to come across Hogwarts, all they would see was a sign that said, "Keep out, dangerous building."
4) Fred and George were born on April Fool's Day... That should explain their mischievous acts :)
5) Snape was partially based on a teacher JKR once had....

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,...

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 l’amour her beautiful red hair. It's so gorgeous. I l’amour it when she has that white fleur in her hair, it's pretty. I also l’amour her eyes. She's just stunning. She has an amazing smile. She is such a natural beauty.

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

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

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

I l’amour Draco Malfoy so much! And we all know that he has a knack for good comebacks. So, these are some things toi can say ou do when he insults you. Let's get this liste started!

1.If he calls toi a Mudblood, say "At least I'm no bleached blonde."
2. If he makes fun of toi for being bad at Quidditch, get the Snitch from right under his nose and don't let him forget it.
3. Slap him across the face.
4. Do a Moody and turn him into a ferret.
5. Turn his hair pink.
6. Call him a Daddy's boy.
7. Bewitch snowballs to constantly hit him on the back of his head.
8. Sneak a Puking Pastille into his dinner--...

Guys, this is for those of toi who enjoy reading/support Ron&Hermione Pairing.

Sixth Year
Hermione's POV

Oh, I wanted to coup de poing her. Right then and there, and shove her to the floor for good measure. I'm talking about Lavender Brown, who had her lips pressed against the one person I loved enough to feel immediate hatred for her. Ron. I wanted to do horrible things to her. Instead, I stood there in shock, tears welling up in my eyes. Harry turned to face me, and I turned away, running towards my dormitory. I slammed the door, which made not even a dent in the sound that was coming from downstairs....

There are many, many reasons to l’amour Hermione Granger. She is a wonderfully written character and a great role model. However, lately I've been seeing a lot of people say things to the extent of "i l’amour hermione because she's sooooo pretty!!!!! she's the most beautiful girl in hogwarts and i l’amour her!!!!!" It seems harmless, and it probably is. But I have a problem with it.

People tend to obsess over her appearances, when Hermione herself would probably scoff at such things. Hermione was never one to care all that much about physical appearances; she was far plus concerned over plus important...

Now that Harry Potter is over, I’ve made a little liste of the films from my least-favorite to most favori (as of now…it tends to change), listing some of the pros and cons of each. I wrote this just for fun, and I’d like to hear your thoughts as well. This is just my humble opinion, and I’m sure it will be different from yours, but no rude commentaires please :)

How often does it happen that we decide to watch a film in the theatre, then chercher it online, and then leave it to finish downloading first so that we could watch it some other time, and then end up, ultimately, forgetting about it altogether? Quite often, I’d say!
There’s nothing wrong in choosing to download the film toi are here for, but when toi can link, why not simply sit down and enjoy it first, and then worry about whether toi want to keep this film with your forever! It’s not only acceptable in the film-fan world, but it’s also the idea in vogue. Furthermore, outing to cinema...

A handy-dandy Wikihow article on how to make a horcrux, for all toi aspiring Dark witches and wizards out there!
Credit: wikihow.com


1. Become an extremely powerful witch ou wizard. This will take years of study and sacrifice which lie beyond the scope of a WikiHow article. As a general guide toi should not attempt to create a horcrux until toi 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 toi like Bellatrix?" So I decided to type up this article. Thank toi 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...

In the book, it looks like they were closer to the cave.
If toi are like the millions of other Harry Potter fans out there, toi have been keeping up with every little bit of Half Blood Prince film information that has leaked out so far. After reviewing the five trailers (including the Japon one) and first look that have come out (not including ABC's five, one minute long previews), fans now have a general idea of what will be in the film from the book, and what is changed/won't be in the film. Thus what follows is what I have gathered to be the scenes included in the film from the books, and what we will see having been changed from book to film...
