LORD Voldemort is definitely NOT Harry's dad. Rowling has a retort for anyone who develops this theory: "You lot have been watching much too much Star Wars."

In Blackness We Lay (An HP/Once Upon A Time Crossover)
added by zanhar1
posted by zanhar1
When zanhar gets bored, zanhar makes fanfictions. And when zanhar can't decide who she wants to obsess over more (Gina or Bella) zanhar makes crossover fics.

Another world is her only choice. That’s what she had decided.
That would be here only means of escape now.
The thought had been dancing in Regina’s mind for a few weeks now, just itching to be acted upon. And finally Regina had, had enough. Between all attempts to revive Henry’s memories failing (resulting in a return to New York for a happy mother and son) and Zelena’s murder of Robin Hood. The witch had been sure to make the...

Inside Hogwarts Is Here, the Harry Potter MOOC that lets you study wizardry

The letter we have all been waiting for
The letter we have all been waiting for
Hogwarts was, until very recently, the 100-percent fictional boarding school in J.K. Rowling’s popular “Harry Potter” books. But thanks to an untold horde of would-be wizards, Hogwarts is now — if not exactly “real” — then something approximating it.
Hogwarts Is Here is the newly launched, fantastically elaborate brainchild of 24-year-old Web developer Keith Cardin, and it’s essentially a volunteer-run MOOC (massive open online course) for Muggles who wish Potions and History of Magic were actual academic pursuits.
When you enroll and receive your electronic owl — “Due to...

The wizarding population in the UK and on the planet?
added by bendaimmortal
posted by bendaimmortal
Obviously it's not in billions. And magic is rare.

So, how rare might it be?
First I'll address some research arguments I found on another site and gave some though to.

They seemed to conclude that there'd be approximately 300.000 to 1.000.000 magical people on the entire planet.
Basing on, for example:

”The room for 100.000 at the World Cup.”
Speculated to give some idea of the total number of magical people in the world...I guess because it's the World Cup and witches and wizards don't have televisions...This stadion room was believed to be for approx. 1/3 or 1/10 of the total world...

What Once Was Part 2
added by zanhar1
posted by zanhar1
Much of Bellatrix's sixth year upon hearing this news was spent trying to decide if she was going to keep the baby or not. With Tom she decided to go for it. What harm could one kid possibly do?

She soon found out that a kid could do very much damage--and that was without it even seeing the light of day yet.

An otherwise hyper Bellatrix found herself growing more tired and less energetic as the days wore on. She had considered cutting class on multiple occasions, but decided against it as she wouldn't let some mudblood surpass her.

Though it was always a struggle when she first awoke. Every...

What Once Was (A Bellatrix/Voldy Fic)
added by zanhar1
posted by zanhar1
There was a time when he loved her. A time when he actually could love, and she'd get him to do so again.

His name was Tom, she had met him during her first year at Hogwarts. He was in her herbology class, and was really the only thing that made actually showing up to the class worth while. At that point it was all too simple; two eleven year old children playing petty pranks in between classes and exchanging silly notes in the middle of class, mostly consisting of ridiculous and poorly drawn pictures of her dear cousin Sirius. The two would often sit before a fire in the common room and simply...

Dramione fan fic (shouldnt have turned around) part 2
added by lorythefangirl
posted by lorythefangirl
As I sit on the rough steps in this cold winters day waiting for my father to tell me to come inside. I know he will eventually but I want to stay alone, facing him time and time again is torture! Around me is the black mansion which is where I live in and surrounding it is snow and naked branches as the leaves has fallen out in comparison to its season. With a flick of my cold black wand a heart appears in the snow, I don’t care about the rules of magic anymore. Then the thought of her face appears in my head and affection rises in my chest, my eyes are feeling hot and my face is turning red. I feel a tear run down my face but it’s not cooling my face down in any way. With another flick of my wand the heart turns black and a crack through the middle breaks it apart and I’m running.

Pros/Cons Of DeathEaterdom 2
added by Flickerflame
posted by Flickerflame
I was asked to do this by lorythefangirl after I responded to her earlier one.

Pros
1. Most of them did believe they were choosing the winning side at the time
2. They would likely be killed if they refused, or otherwise punished.
3. If they come from old pureblood families which share the Death Eaters' beliefs, joining up would help maintain family harmony
4. If they're naturally malicious it gives them an opportunity to kill and torture

Cons
1. Most people wouldn't want to be forced to murder. They might be pushed beyond their own limits, e.g. Draco Malfoy.
2. They'd get imprisoned in Azkaban if caught, or could be killed in self-defence
3. Leaving isn't an option once you're in
4. After they lost, those who'd survived would lose favour even if they avoided punishment
5. Voldemort doesn't seem to be a nice boss
6. It's a story really, and in most stories, the bad guys do end up losing and being punished.

My theory on the self-control of accidental magic
added by bendaimmortal
posted by bendaimmortal
It is known for a fact that accidental magic often happens when a (young) witch or a wizard is really angry, really scared, or really confused. Not to mention in a state of a high stress which can involve all of those emotions.
And then something magical happens, usually something horrible, to the person or thing that is causing the emotions on the witch/wizard.

The books make a big deal about accidental magic, and how young children have little to no control over their magic and thus do a lot of accidental magic.
But obviously they're doing something about it, as the magical society is still...

I'll Stand By You [Draco Malfoy] o4
added by Matsuo_Yumi
posted by Matsuo_Yumi
The two of us; Kaitlyn and I, walked through the large doors and into the Entrance Hall. The entrance Hall was crowded as it always was on the first day. Students of all years were entering in groups, leaving the First Years a little startled. They probably didn’t know where to go, what to do, whom to look for. I smiled to myself, we were just like that! Some five years ago, I realised that we had grown only when I saw the little ones.
“Cal? Caldera?” I turned towards Kaitlyn, who looked irritated.
I raised an eyebrow, “What did I do?”

Richard Griffiths, Uncle Vernon in Harry Potter, Dies at 65
added by FanFic_Girl_26
posted by FanFic_Girl_26
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. When Daniel’s Harry asks him “Because there’s no post on Sundays?”, Richard momentarily dropped the Vernon persona and beamed warmly at him, replying, “Right you are, Harry”, and went on in a far jollier fashion than his character...

51 Reasons Why I Hate Dolores Umbridge
added by zar_far11
posted by zar_far11
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...

J.K. Rowling goes Beyond the Epilogue

J.K. Rowling goes Beyond the Epilogue
[info from various sources including MSNBC and USA Today]

J.K. Rowling has announced in new interviews with the Today show on NBC TV today (July 26) that the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was vague on purpose.

She said it was her desire for it to be "nebulous," something "poetic," and that she wanted the readers to feel as if they were looking at Platform 9 3/4 through the mist, unable to make out exactly who was there and who was not.

She admitted her original epilogue was "a lot more detailed," including the name of every child born...

"Of the many fearsome beasts and monsters that roam our land, there is none more curious or more deadly than the Basilisk, known also as the King of Serpents. This snake, which may reach gigantic size, and live many hundreds of years, is born from a chicken's egg, hatched beneath a toad. Its methods of killing are most wondrous, for aside from its deadly and venomous fangs, the Basilisk has a murderous stare, and all who are fixed with the beam of its eye shall suffer instant death. Spiders flee before the Basilisk, for it is their mortal enemy, and the Basilisk flees only from the crowing...
