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...

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.

The thing is that in that pick, James...

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. 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.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher/Sorcerer's Stone
For Jessica, who loves stories, for Anne, who loved them too, and for Di, who heard this one first.
Explanation: Jessica is JK Rowling’s twelve-year-old daughter. Anne was Jo’s mother, who, unfortunately, died of Multiple Sclerosis on December 30th, 1990. Dianne, ou “Di," is Jo’s younger sister who she read Philosopher/Sorcerer’s Stone before Jo sent it off to be reviewed.

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 question of the educating style is often pondered and some even think "all pure-bloods were accueil 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 ou 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...

This article is reviewing his devotion as a Death Eater, his possible part in the Longbottom torture, his childhood, his father's l’amour for him - and some other things - always basing on what we can read from the Goblet of feu book. Weighting on my own interpretation, of course.

I know the vast majority of people seem to have taken a liking of the first impression the book gives on the father-son relationship, especially par Junior's own words, so I respect that view - however those are only his beliefs and not necessarely the truth and I personally like to dig deeper into the possibilities....

"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...

 MARNIE!
MARNIE!
Hi guys, I'm a big fan of Harry Potter and I remember watching Halloweentown. So, I'm going to be écriture the similarities between Hermione and another young witch, Marnie Piper.

Marnie Piper

I first saw Halloweentown back in 2001 before Harry Potter hit the cinema theatres! Okay, I was very happy that Marnie is her own character and she is not the typical Mary Sue character.

Hermione Granger

Okay, I watched all of the Harry Potter series, and I have that Hermione is actually very much like Marnie, in terms of personality except that she plus of a book-worm. To whom I look up to, not to forget that their names rhyme!
If Harry Potter and Halloweentown were to be set in the same universe, it would be great to make a film about the characters together!

Hermione ou Marnie?

Who do toi like? If toi have anymore similarities between these 2 heroines, let me know!

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...

I will miss Richard Griffiths very greatly. He was a fantastic actor and a great loss. He did an awesome job bringing Vernon Dursley to life the way he did.

Sometimes his true warmth peeked through, as in that one neat scene in the film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone where he is talking about Sundays being a ‘fine day’ and asks why that is; Harry Melling’s Dudley shrugs his shoulders. Daniel’s Harry asks him if the reason was because there was no post on Sundays, and Richard momentarily dropped the Vernon persona and beamed warmly at him, replying with “Right toi are, Harry”...

1. Harry James Potter:

He taught me that i can withstand anything with the power of love. When most of the wizarding world thought he was a joke (because he believed Voldemort was back) He did not back down. He a dit he believed Voldemort was alive and stuck to it. He did not care who laughed at him, who believed him and who did not because he knew Hermione and Ron were standing par him, too. He taught me sheer willpower.
He taught me to take responsibility. It is not always about what i want ou need. It about what is right. What is right for the ones i care about. He taught me to put others first,...

To begin, I suppose an explanation of this article's contents is in order. I have noticed, in seeing the films and then later re-reading the novels, that there are some character discrepancies. From humor to appearance, the characters in the films are, on occasion, very different from their source material. And it is in my humble opinion that the most important thing for a story to succeed is for there to be proper characterization. So, I hope I do not bore toi too badly in this look at character discrepancies in the Harry Potter series. I will only look at one thing per character to make this...

This article was inspired par commentaires par Pensieve_Seeker. It lists 40 examples of ring composition within the series.

1. Voldemort's first defeat is discussed in the first chapter of Philosopher's Stone. He returns in Goblet of feu and is defeated for the final time at the end of Deathly Hallows.

2. Harry sees his late parents in the Mirror of Erised in Philosopher's Stone. He sees them again via Priori Incantem in Goblet of Fire, and again through use of the Resurrection Stone in Deathly Hallows.

3. Harry becomes an orphan at the start of the series, and in Deathly Hallows his godson, Teddy...

I was quiet angry with mom for making me transfer to Hogwarts after three years of getting homeschooled at accueil in America. Well, I wasn't as angry at her for making me attend Hogwarts. After all, it was the best wizarding school in the world. I would've had no problem with the school ou my mom had Hogwarts been located in Britan. I had to leave all my Friends and déplacer across the Atlantic just to go to school.

But my mom had already made up her mind. She was always stubborn, but now that Surius Black still hasn't been caught, she seemed plus determined to send me to Hogwarts. My mom was convinced...
