There have been a lot of Harry Potter theories, ranging from the ridiculous to the strange to the horrifying.

I have composed a list here.

Please comment any other theories you know of that I've missed. :)

Also: there are major spoilers in some of these. Next to each one, if there is a spoiler, I will write the book that it spoils, so if you haven't read that one: skip that theory.

1. The Dursley Family is Justified (Spoils Deathly Hallows)

This is one of my favorites, by the way. Now, we all know that Horcruxes often corrupt people (the medallion, Riddle's diary) and Harry is, as it was revealed in the seventh book, a Horcruxes. So wouldn't it make sense that Harry has a 'bad energy'? This could explain why the Dursleys were so mean to him - yes, they hated Wizards, but some people needed more of an explanation and deduced that Harry simply annoyed people.

2. Draco Malfoy is a Werewolf (Minor spoiler)

Although Dobby was a smaller character we all must admit that we cried at his death. Unless we're heartless. Dobby was full of such life and kindness. He had such compassion for Harry and appreciated him. He wanted to save Harry because Harry had helped him which often put Harry in a worse place. Harry and Dobby eventually became friends even though they weren't close at first. Dobby was by Harry's side throughout everything even when Harry didn't want him to be. Dobby had few close relationships. He had a very close one with Harry and he was still trying to find a way to thank Harry for freeing him. Harry was incredibly sad when Dobby died and was left incredibly heartbroken. (This is irrelevant,but I don't think he'll ever forgive Bellatrix for it.) He insisted on a proper burial for Dobby because he knew Dobby would give him the same treatment. Dobby in addition was always punishing himself when he didn't do things wrong which actually led Harry to give him more sympathy and kindness. Dobby entering Harry's life was a start of a wonderful friendship. I think it ended on good terms.

Slytherin the house of apparent "evil." If you 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 by 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 more misunderstood than bad.

Hello Eddie, we meet again!
Hi guys, I managed to see this Harry Potter spin-off just now at the cinema with 2 of my classmates. Here's my review about the film since that there is no fan club about this movie yet!

The Story

Unlike the typical Harry Potter that I had read and watch the series, the story is extraordinary unusual especially in the Harry Potter Universe. I was a bit disappointed because they should have shown a bit of Lord Voldemort's background, and I thought that Credence was an ancestor of Voldemort due to their mannerism, motives and magic. Secondly, I was not very happy that they use the term 'No-Maj' instead of the usual 'muggles'. It's like using both British and American English!
Overall, I was very amazed by the special visual effects despite that it was sinister for the majority of the film. I also hope to read the book if I got the chance to do so!
Finally, a couple of characters like Newt Scamandar and Gellert Grindelward are familiar faces in the Harry Potter Universe! I found out that the latter has a connection to Voldemort later on.

Undoubtedly Bellatrix is pretty much bad to her very core, and that's what we all love (or love to hate about her) but I think even Bellatrix can be a sympathetic character in some regards. And however minuscule I think there is some good in her but it comes out in a twisted way, that there are some redeemable qualities within her.

The main reason I can see Bella being a bit of a sympathetic character is because of her time in Azkaban. A drab, dreary, miserable place filled to the brim with sinister creatures that suck your soul out and rip away your memories whilst simultaneously making an already chilly prison cell grow frigid. Of course she bought this one upon herself but it's still a grim fate no less. A place that can drive the sane completely batshit.

And Bella was already unraveling. Which brings me to the next point; Bellatrix has always been unstable and not one person thought to intervene in any way. And if they did, the notion of going up against such a powerful family to get her some help was probably off putting. I find Bella to be sympathetic in that she was very much predisposed for evil. I mean it's one thing if the characters had...

By 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 love 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;



Just that brief dismal expression before she starts smirking. This is something book Bellatrix doesn't have. She's completely ruthless. And she's completely rooted and devoted to her belief that muggles and muggleborns are beneath her. And that's what I like about book Bella; she's very nearly a pure villain with very nearly no redeeming qualities (I could state where I think she's not pure evil but I feel as though that's getting off topic and I'll likely make a separate article for it). It's rather hard to come by a...

By now I feel like most people know about and have formed opinions on Delphi and the details surrounding her birth. I know I definitely have and I thought I'd share them.

I'll just put it right out there; hell yeah I'm glad it happened! I know that there are a lot of people who hated the fact that Bellatrix had a kid--and believe me I do understand why, I'll get to that in a bit. But I personally was really excited. I saw the leaked script back in June (or so) and I hoped quite feverishly that it wasn't a hoax. Because the Lord knows that I'm happy that Bellatrix's legacy will live on through her daughter.

Which is another thing I'm happy about; I'm glad that she had a daughter and not a son. For one thing I feel like somehow it would have been very typical for her to have had a son--by this I mean that those old aristocratic families always seemed to favor sons. And I think that it would have taken something away if Bellatrix had a son. Likewise there was that point in the books where Bella says "if I had sons, I would be glad to give them up to the service of the Dark Lord!" I think that this adds another layer of depth because it implies that...

Oh Simon! You amused me!
Wow, I'm very happy that my first Harry Potter article made it to the front page regarding the Cursed Child. Here are my thoughts on my love-hate relationship with Snape!

Simon Cowell

For obvious reasons, Simon Cowell reminds me of Professor Snape as they're cold, sarcastic and aloof. It's no wonder that I develop a love-hate relationship with Snape!

His Soft Spot for Harry

Although he had a love-hate relationship, it wasn't until the second part of the Deathly Hallows and the Goblets of Fire. That I kind of feel bad for Snape himself, I mean he had no intentions to kill Dumbledore and being so mean to Harry!

His Relationship with Harry's Parents

Okay, so he first met Lily before going to Hogswart and were in 2 separate houses. That was when James and Sirius (Harry's godfather) started bullying him, Snape also blurted out calling Lily a smuggle (a Wizarding derogatory term for normal human). Their relationship broke up.

Scary!
Hi everyone, since the release of the book here in Malaysia a couple of weeks ago. Here are my thoughts and why I'm excited to get the soft cover copy of the book soon, as well as my expectations.

The Characters

Okay, since the characters are the same. Despite that it's set several years after the events of the Deathly Hallows, it also features Harry's second son, Albus in it and will continue the Potter bloodline in the story.
I am very happy that the majority of the old characters, including Harry, Ron and Hermione are all back. Not to forget, Draco Malfoy, Harry's nemesis and his son too, to whom I do not know whether he is going to be the villain to Albus Potter in the story!

The Story & It's Format

Unlike previous Harry Potter, this story is a script, considering that it is meant to be a play. So, I will be trying it and that it is also interesting because we can follow the story easier by reading it as a script rather going through the whimsical details that J.K. Rowling had previously did.

So after reading Cursed Child I was beyond excited for this character and I thought I'd share why. That said there are probably gonna be spoilers in here.

First and foremost, right off the bat I figured I'd like her because Bellatrix is her mom. To be honest out of all of my favorite characters I figured that Bella would be the least likely to have a baby but here she is lol. So she gets points just for being Bellatrix's daughter. xP Carry on her legacy well Delphi. :'D

Secondly I love her name. My friend and I, in the last 24 hours have made so many jokes about Bellatrix going 'derp, this is dolphin*. "Time to carry on the Black tradition, shame my mother, and ruin my kid's social life all at once." In all seriousness, as it has been pointed out, Delphi's name really refers to the oracle and I love her name's deeper more symbolic meaning. That alone is already setting up for a cool character.

I also really love her edgy af character design lol. The wing tattoo is badass and I adore her hair. Not because I had my hair dyed the same way for a while or anything... 0:D

(Countdown) Harry Potter Couples acording to Fanpop

16-Bellatrix and Rodolhpus: they are the least favorite of fans because they don't actually even talk to each other inside the story and is a loveless marriage ,the only in the list to be that way

15-Petunia and Vernon: while they love each other and care about their son,they being horrible and nasty people didn't let them have a higher place in the list and as a couple if it weren't for the dememtors Dudley would had grow up to be an even worse person than they are

14-Percy and Audrey: the only we know about them is that they have two girls,we don't even get Audrey´s last name nor if she was even on Hogwarts.So we can't even guess how they would work together

13-Lucius and Narcissa: like the Dursley ,they are awful people who created a spoiled child.But their time together,their worry about their son and some people like them eiter Lucius´s character or Narcissa´s actions (you have to get nerve to lie to Voldemort´s face) put them over the bottom 3,still not good enought

So Rowling never really discussed why Bellatrix is so obsessed with Voldemort. And I constantly ponder upon how anyone could find that no-nosed snake-man-boy attractive in any way. With that said I wanted to post a few of my theories as well as some of the interesting ones I've seen across the net. Once again, as stated, these are just theories and speculations. No more, no less.

First and foremost I think it's a pretty safe bet to say that she loves him or at least started to love him based on the fact that they share similar ideologies. Both loved the idea of pure-blood supremacy. A lot of bonds form from sharing one common ground. But that begs the question; was it her hatred of muggles/muggle borns that had her attracted to Voldemort, or was it Voldemort who instilled these beliefs in her (rather, solidified them seeing as--based on family--she probably already held them).

One theory that I came across is that she was under the imperius curse and no one noticed. Like it made her so frantically devoted to Voldemort that it kind of just slid under the radar. As for the how's I've heard people say that since she died we'd never know; after the war a...

Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a new play by Jack Thorne. It is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage.

It was always difficult being Harry Potter and it isn’t much easier now that he is an overworked employee of the Ministry of Magic, a husband and father of three school-age children.

While Harry grapples with a past that refuses to stay where it belongs, his youngest son Albus must struggle with the weight of a family legacy he never wanted. As past and present fuse ominously, both father and son learn the uncomfortable truth: sometimes, darkness comes from unexpected places.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is one play presented in two Parts, which are intended to be seen in order on the same day (matinee and evening) or on two consecutive evenings.

Care for a Bat Bogey Hex? Anyone?
Greetings Fellows! I'm Isabellagirl033 and I've written this article to clear the confusion that many of you seem to make. I've seen and heard many people classifying Ginny Weasley as a Mary Sue character. Yikes!
Jk Rowling has made the character of Ginny Weasley a very complex one. She evolves from a shy, little girl to a fiery and outspoken redhead. The problem is that Ginny has so many positive characteristics that they overshadowed her flaws.

Ginny indeed has many flaws etc.
* In the Chamber of Secrets, Ron himself says that "Ginny never shuts up, normally" meaning that one of her flaws is that she is extremely outspoken or possibly even a bit rude with her brothers.
* Also in the Chamber of Secrets, we are given the hint that Ginny feels uncomfortable around strangers.
* Throughout the series, we see that Ginny has trouble exposing her feelings to Harry possibly meaning that she has trouble displaying her emotions to other people.

In link we live mainly the 1980's & early '90s. Other than the canon events we don't have a site wide plot but we're character driven and you can set threads to any year in any timeline order. Also outside the site timeline. Here are a few characters I am especially hoping to have a player for. Please, note also the "Other notes" at the bottom of this ad.

If you don't know what forum roleplaying is but would be interested in one or more of these, don't worry, I have written a thorough guide for forum roleplaying and it's on our site. It's also not difficult at all, it's basically interactive creative writing.

And if you're a new Harry Potter fan and don't feel confident about joining an RPG yet, see if my guide for the Harry Potter Universe Basics helps. It's located at the top of the INFO page.

Harry was depressed. He had to write a speech for Cedric Diggory's funeral within two weeks. He didn't know how he was going to the cope with the pain. He needed an outlet.

Harry looked in the library for books on coping methods. He tried many of the suggestions, but none worked.

It was a a week before Cedric's funeral when he found the right method for him. Harry found he really liked music. It was a calming agent for him.

There was not much on the subject in the Library. So he decided to ask Hermione for some books on songwriting.

He walked over to the Griffindor girl's bedrooms and saw Hermione sitting on the floor by her trunk with a cup.

Hermione was making some kind of beat and was humming a pretty melody.

Harry walks up and says

"Hey 'Mione. What is that song you are humming?"

She says

"Oh Hi. It's commonly known Muggle song called The Cup Song. Anna Kendrick sings the song but she calls it When I'm Gone. Pretty isn't it?"

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 said lyric reminds me of her. For once the list actually is in order from what I think suits her most to least.


1. Be My Friend by One Eye'd Doll: The overall 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 you take away the voices I'm just like you I'll hack you up and bury you in my yard but why does making friends have to be so very hard? Oh my God, I don't even know where to begin lol. This song is just so wonderfully offensive...just like Bellatrix herself. So right off the bat and bluntly stated is 'serial killers are people too'. Bella it definitely fits there. And then there's the talk of the murder followed right by 'why don't I have any friends'. That just sounds like Bella to me. Murdering someone with her creepy childish delight. I can just see Bellatrix pondering something like this. Now the other lyrics are a bit more specific and kindof tell a specific story....

I really wish everyone would stop saying that JKR is putting out another book. She is simply getting people to buy the script of a play she wrote. After people see the play, it would eventually end up on Wikipedia where anyone could read it for free. All she's doing is making money off of it. I think it was very lazy and honestly quite surprising that they didn't make the script into a book. They could have any of the publishing company's writers turn the script into a book. I truly believe that JKR cares a tremendous amount about the wizarding world and her fans, but this really doesn't show it.This is more of a tease than anything else. As for the people who have been longing for that feeling of waiting outside the bookstore to get the next book and anticipating the joy and excitement of reading the next installment to find out what happens next, they will be the most disappointed. This will be as much of a tease as the short stories she puts out. People will be reading this for "fictional facts" rather than enjoying a story. Remember how hard it was to follow Shakespeare's plays in high school? Granted, HP is more interesting for fans than Shakespeare, but still...Of course I...

I originally posted 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 you can perfeclly easily bring a muggle main character into any Harry Potter story or RPG & have a whole world of possibilities open for it - even if they don't know or never learn about magic's existence! They can know or 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 characters to the HP universe, see link.

IDEAS FOR MUGGLE CHARACTERS IN THE HARRY POTTER UNIVERSE

X A muggle can come across a magical creature somewhere in the world and begin to study it. Even just that can provide a lot of interesting and colourful events without the muggle gaining any knowledge of magic's existence. (You know, not all creatures classified as magical, actually have magical powers. And the muggle myths and books...

Watson expressed her support for the new cast Noma Dumezweni, who would play the role of Hermione Granger, the female lead of “Harry Potter” films.

The “Regression” actress tweeted that “she can’t wait to see” Dumezweni revive the role in the upcoming London stage production of “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.”


Watson would always be remembered as the female lead role when it comes to “Harry Potter” films. Watson started playing the role of Hermoine Granger from the age of 11 and continued for 10 years, alongside the titular actor Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint who played as Ron Weasley.

So it’s been a while since I’ve typed a Bellatrix fic. This one’s based on my headcanon that Bellatrix hurts herself when she has no one else to torture. So self-harm warning; if you know you don’t like/can’t handle this stuff I don’t recommend reading this one.



Eight nights. Eight marks.
Slanted slightly.
Etched across pale skin.

They whispered to her, a deceptively crooning series of chatter.
Ongoing.
Endless.
They wouldn’t silence themselves no matter how much she demanded it of them. They wanted only one thing, and that thing was not in her power to give to them at that moment. Bella situated herself in the corner of the room, her head filled with a dull throbbing at the invasive whispers.

She could very well be out and about, having herself a time. But she was in hiding; confined to a small three-roomed shack in the woods. It was her master’s wish. She’d unhappily oblige and she’d do so with a pseudo smile in the wake of her dark lord. Across the room—not even feigning happiness—sat Cissy.
