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.

link is a forum roleplaying game where we live 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 - to any time of your character's life, not just the site timeline although that is what the game is mostly focusing on. We are always welcoming new players and characters, but here's one more I'm especially looking for because of personal character plot needs! For potentially endless plots.

You must be at least 18 years old to join.

If you don't know what forum roleplaying is but are interested, you could read the guide I've written and linked to the Basic Info section of the site. What's more important than roleplaying experience is that you're at least somewhat experienced creative writer - our target group is intermediate to advanced level writers.

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.

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...

Emma Watson
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.

We live mainly the time period the books and most roleplaying games skip over – generally the 1980s and the beginning of the '90s – we'll see how the sociaty healed from the long war, and what happened when in the summer of 1992 a rumour spread that the Boy Who Lived battled Voldemort inside Hogwarts! How is your character adapting? Or is it a muugle who's yet to find out about the secret world of magic? Or perhaps a muggle who's absolutely terrified by magic like Mr. Dursley? In addition to the final two years of the first wizarding war, in this RPG muggles and the everyday life and festives or wizarding families can stand out.

This time and setting provides nearly endless possibilities for your characters and gives room for almost any kind of character! Both, muggle and wizarding sociaties are equally available. So also muggle characters have tons of possibilities even if they didn't know anything about magic's existance. And the extensive information package makes sure that anyone who's interested can enjoy playing here, as you don't necessarely need to know the story or the Potter universe beforehand!

5. Hermione Granger

Obviously the most mature of the three of the five main characters. I feel that every trio needs the brains, which I believe Hermione has successfully provided for them. Even though I hated her at the beginning of the series, she grew as the series grew pushing her into my top five.

4. Ron Weasley-

Same with Hermione, even though I did like him since the beginning I felt he grew with the series. I did get a little annoyed at his continuously being envious of Harry and his own brothers, I guess all characters have their flaws. I love Ron!

3. Lord Voldemort-

Or He Who Should Not Be Named is by far the best villan I have seen yet in a book series. I like how he has a well developed past, showing how he became Voldemort. He is similar to Harry in ways, both growing up in poor homes and being mistreated. Plus, without him, the series would be cheesy...

2. Harry Potter-

It was a very nice day, and finally getting warmer. Since today was a beautiful day, Professor Isles took her students outside for today’s lesson. She had sent out notes to every student, telling them to meet her on the Training Grounds. Madam Hooch had told her they had a gnome infestation there, and since that was this lesson’s topic, she thought it was best to go to them.

All her students were outside on time, and Professor Isles smiled as she started. “Good morning, class,” she said. “As you can see, it’s a beautiful day today, so I wanted to take you outside to study gnomes. Can anyone tell me what a gnome looks like?” she asked.

A tiny Gryffindor student raised her hand. “It has a beard and a pointy hat,” she said with a smile. Unfortunately, this answer was wrong, and Professor Isles shook her head.

“I’m sorry, but that’s wrong. That is, however, what Muggle garden gnomes look like,” Professor Isles said to the student. She was a Muggleborn, and had never heard about magical gnomes. “Our gnomes no more than 1ft tall, are usually brown in color and have potato-like heads.”

If you look at Lily and James you notice they are very similar to Harry and Ginny.

Looks

Ginny has red hair and brown eyes. Harry has dark hair and green eyes. Switch them around... you get James and Lily! Lily has RED hair and GREEN eyes. James has DARK hair and BROWN eyes.

"I never really gave up on you"

Ginny had a crush on Harry. And James had a crush on Lily (mentioned by Snape, he did ask her out).

Both Lily and Harry showed no interest, but at some stage they fell for them.

___________________________

Apart from that there is nothing that shows they're very similar.

Compared to some of the other dynamics in the Harry Potter, Sirius and Bellatrix's was rarely in direct spotlight, whether in the books or the movies. They have, however, one of the most interesting and intriguingly unappreciated relationships in the series.

First of all, their parallels -- they were both prisoners of Azkaban for over ten years, making them both sullen, depressed, haunted individuals who are overly familiar with battling for sanity and hope against the dementor's oppression. The difference? Sirius pulled through, Bella gave in. Still, even if Sirius was strong enough to avoid a complete mental breakdown, you can still see that crazed, rabid look in his eye sometimes. They both held onto hope to keep them going-- Sirius to the hope that he would escape and find Harry, and Bella to the hope that Voldemort would return and save her. They're both Blacks, pureblood elitists by birth, and quite honestly they both probably would have stayed that way if Sirius had been sorted into Slytherin. And they are a nearly even match in a duel.
