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.

Veteran actor Alan Rickman has passed away of cancer at age 69. Besides portraying the roles of Hans Gruber in Die Hard and Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies, he has been known for playing the negative roles in many films in the British film industry, including Galaxy Quest, Snow Cake, and Sweeney Todd. Born Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman in Hammersmith to Margaret Doreen Rose and Bernard Rickman, he first acted in 1978's version of the well-known Shakespearean play Romeo and Juliet at age 28 under the role of Tybalt. Known for his rich, smooth voice, he also voiced the Blue Caterpillar in 2010's Alice in Wonderland, based on Lewis Carroll's novel of the same name.
Rickman breathed his last on the 14th of January, 2016 in London.

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.

Doing pokemonfan909 request since i love Drarry personally and i have written things about them before :)


"Harry, we have to get back to our common room, it's almost curfew!" Hermione told harry, who was staring off into the distance of the library.
"O-oh..yeah, right. Forgot." He mumbled standing up and walking out of the Library with Hermione and Ron.
As the three walked down the hall, Hermione was going on and on about homework and how she got hers all done. She was also saying that she wished she had more since she had nothing to do in her free time.

Harry wasn't even listening. He was spacing out. Which he seemed to be doing a lot this past month.
"Harry?" Ron elbowed him. Harry blink and looked his redheaded best friend.
"What?"
Hermione had a strange look on her face.
"You were just mumbling something about Draco.." Ron told him.
Harry's face turned red. "Uh..w-what did I say exactly?" He asked his friends.

Thanks to zanhar1 for the idea. it was brilliant xD

*Also like to point out, this is like a crack!fic so non of the characters will act like they usally do*

It took a lot of yelling and arguing, but Bellatix finally did it. She finally got Voldemort to go to the beach with her.
Once they got to the beach they both hissed at the sunlight. They weren't too fond of it since they preferred the dark, If you couldn't tell from their pasty pale skin.
Bellatrix had pick out a nice swimsuit to show off for the lord, since she really wanted him to like her. Voldemort on the other hand, was covered head to two in clothing, trying to block out the sun. He didn't even notice Bella trying to get his attention.
Bellatrix frowned and stood in front of him. "NOTICE ME!" she yell.
This casued Voldemort to flinch and look at Bella. "Bella...Yelling at me is not needed, I'm three feet away from you" He stated.
"But look at what i'm wearing!"

Dumbledore's office
*Dumbledore's office, a quiet retreat and study for the sage Headmaster, was located in one of the highest towers of Hogwarts. Dumbledore's fascination with the universe and the skies became the room's defining feature.

*One of the most expensive props in the film was the working telescope in Dumbledore's office which was rarely seen on screen.

*On the shelves in Dumbledore's office are hundreds of books, many of which are actually old phonebooks covered in leather and dust.

Gryffindor common room
*The Gryffindor common room and the boys' dormitory were actually built as two connected sets. The staircase spirals up to a hallway that in one direction led to the boys' dormitory set. In the other direction a doorway simply drops off into nowhere.

*Diagon Alley is a cobbled wizarding street and shopping area located in London behind a pub called the Leaky Cauldron. Many of the set pieces were re-dressed and repurposed as Hogsmeade for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

*To create the magical moment when Harry's wand chooses him in Ollivanders, filmmakers slowed the film speed, which is normally twenty-four frames per second, to one hundred and twenty frames per second.Remarkably, this dilation of time, some clever lighting, a smoke machine, and a fan were all they needed to produce this effect.

*The Great Hall was built for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in 2000 and was used as a key set for six more films. (The Great Hall does not appear in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1).

*The House Points Counter was rarely seen on screen, but it is rumoured that when it was first built it caused a national shortage of Indian glass beads.

*The spectacular Great Hall includes the costumes of students from each Hogwarts house plus two large tables which are set for dinner; at the top of the room is the teachers' table where the Hogwarts Professors sat. Iconic scenes such as the Yule Ball and the Battle of Hogwarts were filmed here.

Sorry About this I actually published the whole thing so far previously but removed it because it was too long so I will be putting up 3 chapters at a time from now on.

This is only temporary and the beginnings of a MASSIVE fan fic. So can you just tell me if you like it? That would be great! :)

DISCLAIMER - I don't own any of the Harry Potter characters. I do own Alex, though.

Note - It’s based on a sort of mixture between the book and the movie, but the characters’ appearances and personalities are more like the adaptions in the movie.

Chapter Six

Getaway

I ran into the living room and opened my trunk. Everything was in there. Lugging it behind me, I slipped out the front door into Privet Drive and stuck out my wand, like Mum had told me. Sure enough, I heard the honk of a horn as the Knight Bus came speeding up. As the back of it came level, a pimply youth said ‘Welcome to the Knight Bus, emergency transport for- ‘

The Dursleys

I was sitting at the table with the Dursleys. Ripper had jumped onto the table and had started barking and slurping up all the food. I took out my wand to clean up the table but ended up accidently turning the kid Dudley’s nose into a blob that started oozing down his face. Ripper jumped onto me, sending me falling backwards in my chair, opening his jaws to bite…

Prologue

The rain beat down into the grey looking graveyard, soaking the shoulders of my black jacket. A temporary platform was rigged in front of the saturated crowd, where a little man with a chequered bow-tie and prominent ears read out his respects to the recently deceased Colonel Fubster. He had been droning on for a while now, and I could tell everyone was eager for him to finish.

We do read some about the second one from the last two books, but it doesn't dive that deep into it's big picture, as it sticks to the wizarding society's point of view and mostly to the characters' who had some special role in it. (The main heroes, the main villains, some muggle-borns...)

So, what were those wars really like, from the muggle society's point of view, but also generally from the civilians point of view, be you a muggle or a magical person?

Because, how widely effective, visual or distructive could it possibly have become in the big picture?
The United KIngdom, even just London alone,is a LARGE area to impact.

While there were no war airplanes, tanks, bombs or massive battle field shoot-bomb-and-bloody-murder scenarios going on unlike there would be in muggle wars. (Because there isn't enough magical people to form battle fields for fighting like that and they mostly use wands, and their goverment and society is generallty depicted as stuck in the past centuries in many things.)

It was a cold day.

Freezing in fact.

Just one of the many reasons he hated the world of the muggles. Not that the Wizzarding World was any warmer. But any excuse would do Rodolphus just fine. He’d give anything really to get his wand back. After that dreadful Potter boy came in and killed Voldemort, his followers were stripped (mostly) of their magic and tossed to the muggles they so hated.

He was approaching his new home…a shitty thing it was. Of course to most beholders it was a rather upper-class style house—fairly large and with a neatly tended yard. But for Rodolphus anything built by muggle hands was trashy.

He pulled the door open, a flurry of snow making its way into the house. At least it was warm. He slammed the door shut, with much more force than necessary.

His wife was sitting cross-legged, on the floor, by the fire…so nearby the fire Rodolphus wondered how she hadn’t burned herself. She looked rather cozy to him with her hair was tied up in a messy ponytail—clad in a much too oversized mint green sweatshirt and an equally as large pair of black sweatpants.

Three years ago, I had posted an abbreviated review of the fourth HARRY POTTER film, "HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE". This is an expanded version of that review:


"HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE" (2005) Review

Despite the release of the first two movies in the film franchise, I did not become a fan of the "HARRY POTTER" series until I saw the 2004 movie, "HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN". I became so enamored of this third film that I regarded the release of its successor, "HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE", with great anticipation.

Released during the fall of 2005 and based upon J.K. Rowling's 2000 novel, "HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE" follows boy wizard Harry Potter's fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This year proves to be a special one for Harry when he unexpectedly finds himself competing in the wizard world's Tri-Wizard Tournament, a magical competition for young wizards from three different schools, who are 17 years old or older. Not only does the 14 year-old Harry have to deal with the contempt from Hogswarts students...

I'm reviewing the matter in general, but let's start with the darkest year of Hogwarts' recent history.

In 1997-1998, the Death Eaters made attending Hogwarts mandatory to magical children between ages 11-18. Regardless of them coming of age at 17. This is evident from Neville Longbottom and many other 17-year olds attending their last year in the school that normally wouldn't be required in order to graduate. Surely no one in their right mind would attend the school that year if given a choice simply not to.
But was it mandatory to every single magical child of that age span, no matter what their magical study history? None of the books' characters' cases reveal that as they were currently registered as a Hogwarts students anyway. I haven't found any official or canon statement about that detail, so I believe it was left up to fan visions.

I think it would make most sense that they made it mandatory only to those who were registered as students at the time of the take-over, and for those aged 11 who were to start, and possibly for recent drop-outs. Because it would be virtually impossible to succesfully and safely run a school with...

A/N Happy Halloween time! This story goes through most of the full moon / Halloween week. I'm not entirely sure what I want from this - but in the least this will be a little story about Halloween time in the universe of the Harry Potter books, through the eyes of a child - a child who also happens to be a werewolf.

IMPORTANT: The werewolf vision in these stories is mostly mine and not official/from the books. Mostly. So, please don't copy from it unless you can verify that the detail is Rowling's. Thank you. A/N

"MUM, you bought the 'No pulp' kind again..." I grumble, grimacing with my first sip of orange juice.

"Sorry, dear. I always forget which kind you like," she apologizes.

"It's 'SOME pulp'," I remind her for what must be the millionth time.

She scribbles something on the grocery list tacked to the inside of the silverware cupboard door.

"Run out and get the mail?" She asks.

I run my thumb up the stack of napkins that sits on the table. "Do I have to?"

She turns around and gives me a look that usually means No-dear-you-don't-have-to-but-if-you-don't-I'm-going-to-buy-more-no-pulp-orange-juice.

I groan and stumble out the door, still in my pale-blue nightgown. It's not yet light, but mum loves it when we get up early to "Get a fresh start on the day," so I'm stuck getting up at this ungodly hour of the morning, although my little sister Amelia gets off easy, only having to be awake by 7:00. By my estimate, it's about 6:30 right now.

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson’s portrayal of J. K. Rowling’s wizarding trio Harry, Ron and Hermione has impressed film buffs who have voted it the best book to film adaptation of all time.

The poll – run by Samsung Electronics – was set up to coincide with the release of David Fincher’s screen adaptation of Gone Girl starring Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck.

A third of film buffs voted the Harry Potter series - starring Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith and Warwick Davis - as the best adaptation.

Award winning The Shawshank Redemption starring Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins followed closely in second, with The Lord of the Rings trilogy taking third place.

Other favourites to make the list were romantic classic Gone With the Wind starring Vivien Leigh and Clarke Gable as Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler, as well as Silence of the Lambs and Bridget Jones’s Diary.

Robert Pattinson may have earned himself an army of adoring female fans in vampire fantasy, Twilight but the film adaptation failed to match up to the novel’s success.

Menahem Asher Silva Vargas might need to find the Room of Requirement . The Mexico City man probably could use some extra space these days, as he’s acquired no fewer than 3,097 pieces of Harry Potter memorabilia.
Instead, Vargas will have to settle for a definitively Muggle Guinness World Record. His collection—which includes everything from toy figurines to replica Quidditch brooms—obliterated the previous record holder, an 807-item assortment, like a Reductor Curse from Dumbledore’s wand itself. [The Guardian ]
Guys like Vargas made the Harry Potter franchise the economic juggernaut it has become. For a more comprehensive look at what makes these type of enterprises explode, pick up How Star Wars Conquered the Universe: The Past, Present and Future of a Multibillion Dollar Franchise, a new book by Chris Taylor out today. Star Wars fans may currently be enjoying a renaissance, but Taylor goes to great lengths to remind readers that the franchise’s success wasn’t always a given. [USA Today ]

Harry is in the forbidden forest, standing in front of Voldemort, about to give up his life. The book states "...and Harry thought inexplicably of Ginny, and her blazing look, and the feel of her lips on his--".

Now, a basic reading of this moment and people would think Harry's last thoughts were of kissing Ginny. Those who ship Harry with someone other than Ginny, will have his last thoughts be of that girl. For example, Harry and Hermione shippers, via the use of screen caps from the movies, will have Harry's last thoughts be of her.

However, what if there was more to this moment than meets the eye? Ginny's full name is Ginevra, which is an anagram for vinegar. Thus we have vinegar touching Harry's lips.

John 19:29-30
New International Version (NIV)

29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

I found an interesting short essay from HP Lexicon and it made me think about it even deeper than it goes.

First off; please don't get me wrong.
I love Dumbledore's character, I love Lockhart's character, I love Hogwarts, and I love, love, love the books and the HP universe. I'm just wondering and interested in what, if anything, is behind all this I'm about to discuss.
That if Rowling possibly actually planned this somehow and for some reason many parents in that universe are willing to over-look huge problems and risk their children's lives because of someone's status and previous reputation...OR if this is just unfortunate illogicness because of her coming up with awesome general storylines and interesting characters and not thinking some of them enough throroughly.

So, Hogwarts is supposed to be concidered "the finest wizarding schol" in the world I guess as there's only one in each country. And Dumbledore is supposedly concidered "the best Headmaster Hogwarts has ever seen".

I recently found a strange contradiction in the concept of wizarding money.I'd like to know if my idea is true or if there is a counter-argument against it.

In pg.65 of HP and the Chamber of Secrets,we learn that Muggle money can be exchanged into wizarding money.

We also know that potentially valuable(in a Muggle point of view) objects such as chairs can be Conjured by magic(eg:Dumbledore does this in the courtroom in HP and The Order of the Phoenix).

So any wizard who knows basic Transfiguration can Conjure objects such as chairs,sell them to Muggles to obtain Muggle money and then exchange this money into Galleons,thus obtaining an infinite amount of wealth.

Doesn't this contradict the whole point of wizarding money?

Thanks in advance for any help.

The whole Time Turner thing's always confused the heck out of me.

EDIT: Okay, problems solved. Please read the comments section, (too). Thans! :EDIT ENDS

First off; please don't get me wrong. I love the Prisoner of Azkaban book - it was the first book I ever read in the series, and it has always been one of my favourite parts of the series and still is. For everything else in it except this time travel aspect. Everything else in it is brilliant.

It's been many years since I last read the book, so I don't remember all the details...But going by the movie adaptation which I don't recall straying much from the book in this aspect...

1.) At the point when Harry and Hermione used the Time Turner, they'd already saved both Buckpeak and Sirius - so why didn't they remember that they'd just done that? And thus not use the Time Turner as there was no need to.

--> I know they were somehow devided into two different enbodiments of themselves at the moment of using the Time Tuener, but both enbodiments were pretty much at the same places at the same time just playing different roles, so when they were standing...

Hello there. As many of Harry Potter fans surely know, there are many characters who have received a lot of illogical hate from some people, often poorly explained, since in general, the haters are unable to express their own opinion and lack fantasy, so the arguments are basically the same, especially for females. Let’s talk about Ginny for example, obviously my rant below concerns this character in particular.
Of course, when a part of fandom (of course, I’m not generalizing, that’s why I said SOME and A PART delibarately) starts to bash feminine characters (more generally – mainstream behaves the same way towards famous or not so famous women, doesn’t matter which one), one of the most “necessary” thing to do for them is to insult their looks, then attack their sexuality, and finally – stick a label, trope or stereotype. Now I’ll try my best to deconstruct these tendencies and show that such behavior is a direct result of double standards and sheer hypocrisy sadly common in our society. So, here we go.

I've noticed that (here, anyway) a lot of fans seem to have severe opinions of Snape. Either they hate him, or they love him and he's the best character ever. I don't see many who have a mixed opinion of him, so I'm going to try to explain mine.

I think that, while Snape was extremely brave spying on Voldemort and the Death Eaters for many years - and I can't imagine how hard that would have been - there are also many bad points about him.

+ I do pity him his childhood. Parental breakup and them fighting all the time, being poor, being picked on and isolated. Poor him. Unlike others though, I don't accept this as any excuse. One of the main messages of the series is that choices make someone who they are.
+Again, I pity him on how he was bullied as a teenager.
- He called Lily a mudblood. Even using that word is horrendous.
- He became a Death Eater. He chose to become a Death Eater. Although we don't see any of those years or hear any description of them, we can imagine the sort of crimes he committed during those years.

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 deed as excruciating as she could in ripping the thief’s heart out and crushing it, leaving him to die in Regina’s arms just as her mother and Daniel had. The woman finally snapped, she had to get away from this hell, from the people who still shot her dirty looks and accusing glances despite all the effort (and if she must say so herself) success she put into changing herself for the better. The mayor was completely and utterly fed up with the town she’d wasted a chunk of her life making. With Henry and Robin both lost to her, it was time to leave...

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 increasing use of technology of Muggle-born students, Hogwarts is introducing a new digital interface,” it explains — you’re instructed to sign up for seven nine-week courses. There are actual syllabi. And textbooks. And graded assignments. My first essay for Defense Against the Dark Arts, in which more than 16,000 students are currently enrolled, requested a two- to five-paragraph essay on “why defensive magic is important.” I can’t even view the second lesson, “Simple Standard Spells,” because I haven’t submitted the first essay yet.

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 link 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 population of magical people.

I don't believe so.
Out of the billions of muggles only a tiny minority can attend a World Cup because a stadion can be only so big. Even with magic because no one would want to sit kilometers awy from the game feald which is already in itself quite large. So I think it's entirely possible that only a tiny minority of the world's wizarding...

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 morning she was greeted with a much unwelcomed wave of nausea. And was eventually forced to provide some excuse as to why she always got up so early, as well as where she went when she did.She had claimed to be in the library working on some project or another--and Tom had no problem vouching for her.

But Bellatrix's biggest dread was yet to come. Her body hadn't really started to show any obvious physical signs of her pregnancy yet--regardless the witch knew she had fess up before her body did that for her. She hadn't even the nerve...

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 talk about who they hated and who was 'cool' until lights out. Not a trouble not a worry. What did children of their age have to fear anyways? Their blood was pure. They were pure. They were in turn safe. No one dared to mess with them.

It was in year three that things got more complex, more confusing. It was in year three that Bellatrix had realized she desired something much more from Tom than just his friendship. But after dropping countless hints, she realized just how oblivious he was. Or maybe it was the fact that he was more interested in Alice...

My father saw that something was bothering me but he thought, being the selfish man that he is, that it was that I was scared and worried about my new state in society, scared about being a deatheater. He will never know.... not that he helped of course that just got me more worried. I have to kill Albus Dumbledore; Hermione would never love me then. My father decided to then...

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.

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.

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 mostly hidden but no one can learn magic control over-night and just wake up one morning and no longer have accidents.

Despite of the books making a big deal about the accidental magic, I don't think Rowling has ever given any official explanation as for how do witches and wizards work on the problem. Apart from there being a Squad in the Ministry of Magic for reversing accidental magic situations.

Lets get started so lets go with the pros, as you know they will be the hardest so lets get it over with...
PROS
1.You seem to have lots of money as a death eater as when you look at the malfoys house its very big...
2. They seem to have extreme trust in the the dark side as they believe in the unbreakable vow and we know that when you break an unbreakable vow the punishment is death.
3. You are more safe from the dark lord as that you work for him and if you stay a loyal follower he should not have to hurt you and youre family.
4. You dont really have to do any work as voldemort belives that he is the king and has full power so you just do what your told and to be honest he doesnt really wnat to give you that much since he wants to kill harry himsef
4. You get to unleash the evil villian in you and your pierrs wont judge you as they will embrace it.
5. If you are a desendant from a deatheater you wont have to feel guilty because you would have to be a deatheater.

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?”
“We were talking, remember?” she said, furrowing her eyebrows.
I sighed. I had told her about the incident with Fred and she wouldn’t stop talking about how I was cursed by oblivion.
“How oblivious can you be? He asked you to the Yule Ball and you accepted! Why did you? To dance?” she kept speaking.
I rolled my eyes. Why did they think that going to the Yule Ball with Fred was such a big event? It was almost two years ago.

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 Vernon usually portrayed - that is, until the hundreds of Hogwarts letters began to pour into the house.

I bet that deep down, unlike Vernon, Richard liked imagination and magic, and, if Vernon was real, he would’ve given Vernon a lecture on how an uncle should treat a nephew, especially if the nephew, like Harry, was a wizard too. :)

Rest in peace, Richard. As you go on, be sure to take our love with you into, as Albus Dumbledore put it, ‘the next great adventure’. :’)

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, the Hogwartians would have lost the Battle of Hogwarts.

5) She has a bad taste in fashion. She wears way too much frill and lace.

6) Her voice doesn't match her appearance. I mean... she looks like a toad with the voice of a…um… really-high-pitched-singing bird. Very weird.

7) Umbridge tried to get Dumbledore sacked. Well, if you haven't noticed, Dumbledore's still headmaster and Umbridge left Hogwarts with a fear of centaurs. I'd leave Dumbledore alone, if I were you....

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 to the Weasley clan in the past 19 years. For example, Victoire, who was snogging Teddy, Lupin and Tonks' son, is Bill and Fleur's eldest child.

"But it didn't work very well as a piece of writing," J.K. said. "It felt very much that I had crowbarred in every bit of information I could ... In a novel you have to resist the urge to tell everything."

"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 of the rooster, which is fatal to it."
—A page from an old library book.[src]
The Basilisk is a giant serpent, also known as the King of Serpents. It is a creature bred by Dark Wizards. Herpo the Foul was the first to breed a Basilisk; he accomplished this by hatching a chicken egg beneath a toad which resulted in the creature known as a Basilisk. Basilisk breeding was banned in Medieval times. The practice can be hidden when the Department for Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures comes to check by simply removing the egg from the toad.

Dragons are giant winged, fire-breathing reptiles. Widely regarded as terrifying yet awe-inspiring, they can be found all over the world and are frequently referred to in Asian and medieval European folklore. Able to fly and breathe fire through their nostrils, they are one of the most dangerous and hardest to conceal creatures in the wizarding world. The Ministry of Magic classifies them as XXXXX, most dangerous, or known wizard killers. Despite how dangerous they are, there are people who are trained to work with them, called dragon keepers, or dragonologists. A wizard who illegally trades and sells dragons is referred to as a dragon dealer. Members of the Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures who kill Dragons are called Dragon Killers.
Dragon mothers breathe fire on their eggs to keep them warm. The dragon's first fire breaths, usually accompanied by thick grey smoke, appear when the dragon is around six months old. However, the ability to fly is normally developed later, at around twelve months, and the dragon will not be fully mature until it is two years old and ready to live on its own. Dragon Breeding for Pleasure and Profit states that you are to feed a...

A werewolf is a human being who, upon the complete rising of the full moon, becomes a fearsome and deadly near-wolf. Werewolves can be easily distinguished from regular wolves by their shorter snout, more human-like eyes, the tufted tail, and their mindless hunting of humans whilst in wolf form. At all other times, they appear as normal humans, although they will gain a pallor as the moon approaches and then wanes. This condition is caused by infection with lycanthropy, also known as werewolfry. A werewolf cannot chose whether or not to transform and will no longer remember who they are and would kill even their best friend given the opportunity once transformed. Despite this, they are able to recall everything they have experienced throughout their transformation upon reverting to their human form. A mixture of powdered silver and dittany applied to a fresh bite will seal the wound and allow the victim to live on as a werewolf, although tragic tales are told of witches and wizards begging for death rather than becoming werewolves. The Wolfsbane Potion, invented by Damocles, allows the werewolf to keep their human mind during transformation.

Witch Weekly in 1995. The piece, written by Rita Skeeter, claimed that Hermione Granger was Harry Potter's girlfriend and that she was toying him around by seeking the affections of Viktor Krum, who himself was very much smitten with her. As with much of Skeeter's writing, though the essence of the article was false, there was smidgen of truth that lent the article an air of believability to those who did not know better. While Harry was not Hermione's boyfriend, the two had in fact been close friends since early in their first year at Hogwarts. Additionally, Hermione had danced with Krum at the Yule Ball earlier in the school year and Krum had invited her to visit him over the summer, a fact that Skeeter was only able to learn because she was listening in via her beetle form as an unregistered Animagus. The article also suggested that Hermione might be brewing love potions, something which she likely was in fact quite capable of doing, but would never actually do

the Fat Friar
The Fat Friar was a wizard, who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in his youth, and was Sorted into Hufflepuff. He was a jolly man and very forgiving. He devoted his life to religion and, after his death, returned to the school as the resident ghost of Hufflepuff House.
As a ghost, the Friar was pearly-white and slightly transparent, like all other ghosts. He had short brown hair, which he wore with a small tonsure. At first sight a monk, he was dressed in a habit held by a rope belt. He was fat and short, and usually carried a mug with him.
The Friar was very cheerful and welcoming, and happily greeted new students at Hogwarts. He also tended to find something to value in anyone and look past their faults, as he always insisted with the other ghosts to let Peeves attend the Start-of-Term Feasts despite his many wrongdoings. He also appeared to be quite sociable, meeting and engaging in conversation with fellow ghosts during Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington's five-hundredth Deathday Party.He also seems to have some House pride, as he happily reminisced about his "old House" when welcoming first-years. Despite this, he was always resentful of the fact...

Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington, known after his death as Nearly Headless Nick, (d. 31 October, 1492) was a wizard who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was Sorted into Gryffindor House. He was a wizard of the royal court as an adult. He was executed by an improper decapitation, after he had a magical mishap with Lady Grieve, in which she grew a tusk. Since then, he is the resident ghost of Gryffindor Tower at the Hogwarts Castle.
As a ghost, Sir Nicholas was pearly-white and slightly transparent. He had long curly hair. He would usually sport a ruff, which would ensure his partially severed head stayed in place, as well as tights, a pair of breeches, a doublet[ or, occasionally, a tunic. He had a preference for extravagant plumed hats. He also sported a small moustache and goatee. He carried himself in a prim fashion and spoke in an airy, delicate tone.
Sir Nicholas is affable, kind and always willing to lend a hand to Harry and other fellow Gryffindors whenever they need it. Nicholas apparently enjoyed eating during his lifetime, as after his death he spent the feasts at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry looking wistfully at the food....

Helena Ravenclaw
Helena was a tall witch with waist-length hair. She wore a floor-length cloak.
Helena Ravenclaw (late 10th century — early 11th century), known as the Grey Lady after her death, was a witch and Rowena Ravenclaw's daughter. She attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and was Sorted into Ravenclaw house. At some point, she stole her mother's diadem and ran away to Albania. Rowena became fatally ill, and hoping to see her daughter one last time, sent the Bloody Baron, a man who harboured an unrequited love for Helena, to find her. The Baron killed Helena when she refused to return with him, before killing himself out of regret for what he had done. She and the Baron eventually returned as ghosts to Hogwarts Castle, where Helena is the Ghost of Ravenclaw House.
During the last few years of Tom Riddle's education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he became interested in the subject of Horcruxes. Planning to create some in an effort to become immortal, Riddle favoured objects worthy of the honour. He apparently heard of Ravenclaw's diadem, and questioned the Grey Lady about it. Tom managed to obtain all necessary information to get the diadem.

the bloody baron
The Bloody Baron (late 10th century — early 11th century) was a wizard who attended Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in the Founders' time and was Sorted into Slytherin house. After Hogwarts, he fell in love with Helena Ravenclaw, but she did not love him. He was sent by Rowena Ravenclaw to find Helena in Albania, but Helena refused to return with him and so he killed her in a rage. When he realised what he had done, the Baron stabbed himself with the same knife and died. Since then, he is one of the ghosts that haunts Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and the ghost of Slytherin house. Covered in Helena Ravenclaw's blood to this day, he earned himself the moniker of "Bloody Baron".
During his lifetime, the Baron was described by Helena Ravenclaw as a "hot-tempered man". He insisted on having his way in interactions, responding with violent uncontrolled anger when contradicted. As a ghost, he was frightening and most people did not seem to enjoy his presence, not even his fellow ghosts. However, he seemed to have a cordial, if not friendly, relationship with the ghost of Sir Nicholas de Mimsy Porpington, despite Ronald Weasley's allegations of the latter...

This is a one-shot fanfic I wrote a couple of years ago, and is set at the end of The Goblet of Fire.
Hope you like it! :)

Harry felt so weak…happy…but weak. His worst possible enemy had been brought to immense power. What was he to do now? How was he supposed to live without having some fear inside him?
He sat, lonely and abandoned, on the damp grass in the wondrous Hogwarts grounds, running a hand through his medium length hair. He felt his scar with his fingertips as it tingled slightly from his touch. In his mind, Harry thought of himself as helpless, with no one on his side except for Ron, Hermione and Dumbledore. How was he going to cope?
And it was in that moment, his deep thoughts were interrupted. He noticed a blue shiny light ahead of him, almost like a Patronus light. Was it a Patronus? Harry stood up, eyeing the light as it grew from a mere ball into a shape. It was a woman, with a thin silver dress running down her body, as if it was just rags. Her skin was almost transparent, and as Harry stared into her eyes, he received a kind but serious look from them.

I tossed and turned around in bed as I tried to fall asleep. It was the day before I left for Hogwarts for the new school year. I don’t know whether it was excitement or just that I had forgotten to pack something that kept me from falling asleep. I had packed all my robes, other clothes, books and all other stuff the day before so that I wouldn’t have to participate in a scavenger hunt with Mum in the morning.
I sighed and turned over in bed again. The only source of light I had was the faint light of the crescent moon outside, meaning I couldn’t really see much.
I closed my eyes but sleep did not take over me. Maybe it was because I had slept more than a normal witch should during the vacation.
I groaned and threw the sheets off me and sat up in bed. I reached for my bedside table. I found it and felt around for the knob of the drawer. I pulled it open and took out my wand.
“Lumos,” I whispered and the tip of the wand lit up.
I looked at the alarm clock on my bedside table and saw that it was already three-thirty in the morning.

On the night that Sirius died, after the battle at the Ministry of Magic at the end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore showed Harry, with the aid of his pensieve, the complete Lost Prophecy:

"The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches... Born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies... and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not... and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives... the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies..." (OotP pg 841/741)

As Harry comes to the realization that the prophecy is about himself, Dumbledore tells him, and us:

"The odd thing is, Harry," he said softly, "that it may not have meant you at all. Sibyll's prophecy could have applied to two wizard boys, both born at the end of July that year, both of whom had parents in the Order of the Phoenix, both sets of parents having narrowly escaped Voldemort three times. One, of course, was you. The other was Neville Longbottom." (OotP pg 842/742)

"I enjoyed playing a real character, someone I really had to transform into definitely."
Emma Watson bristles at the mere mention of the name Hermione Granger.

She has nothing against her one-time alter ego as such, but for 12 years of her life she has had to live the squeaky-clean schoolgirl character from the Harry Potter franchise.

Indeed, since the age of nine when she was first cast in the role, she has lived the magical world of Hogwarts and Hagrids and now shifts uncomfortably in her chair with the reference to the character that made her a household name and turned her life upside down.

"I'm just enjoying now being naughty," she says with a giggle in reference to her new films The Bling Ring - where she plays a real-life Hollywood obsessed bad girl who robs houses of the rich and famous for fun - and the comedy This Is the End, in which she plays a fiery, axe-swinging version of herself. Both are huge departures from her previous image, but she hopes they will show she is more than that annoying little smart girl Hermione Granger.

Harry Potter fans enjoy Olivander's Wand Shop at the wizarding theme park in Orlando
Two years have passed since the final Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2, was released. So Warner Bros, keen to keep the lucrative franchise alive, have decided to launch a three-day festival themed entirely on the magical world created by JK Rowling.

In a similar vein to the Star Wars Celebration events which have been hosted by Lucasfilm since 1999, A Celebration of Harry Potter will take place January 24-26 2014, during the park's less attended winter season, at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park based in Orlando, Florida.

Park attendees will be able to join in the Celebration activities, which will include Q&As with the stars and the filmmakers, lessons in wand dueling and other muggle fun. However, packages are being offered for between £250 and £450 per person for hardened fans and will allow access to a private evening reception and early access to the theme park's rides.
There are also rumours that the Celebration may involve a soft launch of the park's awaited Diagon Alley attraction, which is reportedly opening next June.

Rubeus Hagrid is a fictional character in the Harry Potter book series written by J. K. Rowling. Hagrid is introduced in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as a half-giant and half man who is the gamekeeper and Keeper of Keys and Grounds of Hogwarts, the primary setting for the first six novels. In the third novel Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Hagrid is promoted to Care of Magical Creatures teacher, and later becomes a member of the Order of the Phoenix.

Hagrid was among the characters that Rowling says she created "the very first day". She has explained the source of his name as "another old English word, meaning — if you were hagrid — it’s a dialect word — you’d had a bad night. Hagrid is a big drinker — he has a lot of bad nights." In her article "Harry’s Fame", Rosemary Goring notes the Forest of Dean is an influence on Rowling’s work, and Hagrid is the only character that is "directly drawn from the Forest of Dean". According to Goring, Hagrid’s "dropped word-endings are a Chepstow speciality." She also notes that Hagrid is physically "modeled on the Welsh chapter of Hells Angels who’d swoop down on the town and hog the...

[b]The Boy Who Lived turns 33 today (age determined by Muggles That Rule The Internet), and he’s probably having a pretty great day. His kids aren’t yet at Hogwarts, so — if I can get a little fan fiction-y on you for a moment — he’s probably just spending the day with Ginny, James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily Luna. His life is a lot easier now; not having a noseless mass murderer breathing down your neck (and in your head!) does wonders for your stress level. There’s a reason J.K. Rowling focused the story on his teenage years and isn’t currently writing an eighth book called Harry Potter the Suburban Dad. (to be clear: If she wrote it, I would read it.)
Because Harry’s post-Voldemort days eventually become pretty dang easy, I got to thinking about his Hogwarts years, which were 4,224 pages strong of mountain troll-fighting, blood quill-dealing, and mysteries galore. While I’m sure even the non-Potterphiles among you are aware of his biggest accomplishments (defeating Voldemort comes to mind) there are a lot of moments where Harry was pretty bloody awesome, and it’s totally been forgotten if you haven’t recently done a re-read. In honor of...

So, you guys may or may not be aware of the date (it IS summer after all) but it is July 31st! Date ring a bell? Yes? No? Maybe so? Well, July 31 is a special day for all Potterheads because it is..... *drumroll* Harry Potter's birthday! Yes, this is the day that the adventure began for that scrawny boy with untidy hair and green eyes. But of course, we can't forget that it's also J.K. Rowling's birthday as well. She's the one who started this all so she definitely deserves a proper recognition. Happy 48th, Jo! Finally, it is Neville Longbottom's birthday today. A member of the Silver Trio, Dumbledore's Army, and a true Gryffindor, Neville is also deserving for a proper birthday wish. We love all three of you!
I am writing another article about this subject as well, but I wanted another one, a more serious one, to call out to people and remind them to appreciate this day... because this is the day... it all started.

3. Luna-I love Luna's looks! She's stunning! I love her long, blonde hair. I also adore her eyes, not to big and not too small. I love her radish earrings, they compliment her so well.

2. Bellatrix-Wow, this woman is so gorgeous for someone who's so evil. First off, her hair is so messy and gorgeous. I actually like how messy it is, it looks gorgeous even when it's messy! I also love her eyes. So beautiful. She's also got an amazing figure. I love her big, full lips. Her black dress compliments her very well and is perfect for her. This woman is just gorgeous. However, she's not number 1 because number 1 is in my top 5 most beautiful women of ALL TIME.

“Where’d the others go?” Ginny asked.
Turning around, George saw that Ron, Harry, and Hermione had all gone missing. He turned to his twin.
“I don’t think they’re in danger from the Death Eaters anymore,” Fred said, not sounding entirely convinced. “Come on, let’s keep going. It looks like everyone’s up there.”
George knew he and his twin had a responsibility to protect their only sister, but he felt uncomfortable leaving his brother and friends behind. For all they knew, they might be in danger from the Death Eaters mercilessly dangling innocent Muggles from which they were currently fleeing.
After a few minutes, their small band found the thousands of witches and wizards congregating in the woods to avoid the former dark forces that had terrorized Britain. Before them was a scene of chaos. Countless wizards were running about frantically. People were calling to each other trying to find friends and assure themselves everyone they knew was safe. Parents were trying to control their young children in the midst of the yelling, crying, and running of the wizards around them, trying to explain to them they were in danger from a force...

"Pheonix, I heard that a muggle called Joan Rowling wrote a book about me." Said Harry Potter one day.
"Harry, I know and I've read it. It seems that even though I'm just as famous as you, she doesn't mention me in the book. Oh yes, niether did she mention Lily." replied a girl sitting next to Harry. She had long dark brown hair and misty blue eyes, she was so beautiful. Actually, she's not just a girl, she is Phoenix White, Harry Potter's cousin.
Harry smiled and replied, "Lily, I think she is much more famous than the two of us. She is just so brave and loyal, it was such a comfort to know that your best friend is named after your mother."
"Yes, your aunt." Pheonix whispered, "Come Harry, remember todays september 1st."

Pheonix POV:
Looking at the Hogwarts Express turning an angle, I remember that 23 years earlier, I was in that train, chatting to my best friend. Never knowing that that year was my most exiting year ever, maybe one day, I can see my own child go on that train, to start her fourth year at Hogwarts.

To start I would like to say that I am not posting this to be mean or start any fights. I'm posting this because a lot of people ask me why I don't like her or 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 Bellatrix a bitch before killing her either. And it really gets me that Molly acts like Bellatrix was completely heartless-Bellatrix would do just as much for Voldemort (and she has) as Molly would, but that's another matter.

Moving on to the less obvious; she nags her kids way too much. Prime exsample being her howling letter. That was pretty harsh. I'm no Ron fan, but I felt so bad for him, just imagine having everyone in the great hall laugh at you as your mom screams at you. Getting yelled at in front of the class is bad enough, but having your...

I have often been asked about the impact the HARRY POTTER films have had on my life. What's it like growing up in a film set? How have the films changed/shaped you? What's it like to be a celebrity? Have you missed out on a "normal" childhood? These questions and similar ones have preoccupied the world for many years. The simple truth is that I have nver known any different, and so what the world views as unusual is my normality, and I have loved every minute of it.
The cast and the crew of HARRY POTTER films had been my second family for half my life. I have gone from a young ten year oldto a man of twenty one years, and every film holds different memories for me, as each mark a transition along the way. And how many man my age can boast that they have speared a huge snake, nearly lost their lives playing chess, narrowly avoiding being eaten by a gargantuan spider, nearly fallen out of a flying car, fought a dragon, swam in the water for forty hours, dodged a dangerous maze, kissed a girl, kissed another girl (OK, maybe that isn't so unusual), and not to mention gone head-to-head with the most evil wizard in all time?

I combined a few surveys/questionares into one. See the first comment for the source links.

- I thought I'd have my original/fan character fill this out because I'm currently focusing on writing about his childhood.
He's a werewolf/wizard in the Harry Potter universe, and he filled this out at age 12. (Because I haven't yet visioned his life in much detail beyond his thirteenth year.)

- A modern day person may wonder why would a kid answer to certain questions there and even that openly, or talk about those matters with his friends, or how could a police officer discipline his child that severely...
So I'll have you know that this child grows up in the 1980's and 1990's England. Corporal disciplining was very common practice back then as it was legal in state schools until 1987 and the 'must-not-leave-a-mark' restriction law for parents did not exsist before 2004.
That era, (in addition to the boy's hard-headed, spirited nature), being also the reason why I included those sections to a questionare about his childhood.

I found this questionare from link.

Let's start – what's your FC's name?
Stephen Hunter King

Is the name a play on words of any sort (eg; name meaning matches the character's personality)?
No, not really. But I named him after Stephen King, my favourite horror novelist. And Hunter I chose because it's a name I love. Although, it does also suit the fact that he's a werewolf, and loves being one.

What universe did you drop them in?
Harry Potter.

Does your FC have any attributes to match the universe they are in?
Yes, he's a half-blood wizard.

Appearance?
Friendly face, intense eyes, big ears, and really cute smile with dimples. He's got black hair usually in a swishy/spikey style, his eyes have strong brown, greenish-gray, and clear blue when looked really closely but usually appear just brown/green. The blue takes completely over in his wolf form.

So i noticed a lot of people making these types of articles and i wanted to make one about my favorite Harry Potter character.

First off i love her personality. She's definitely an individual. She's not afraid of being who she is and i find that admirable because you see so many people try to change themselves. Her wacky, funny personality is what makes her awesome! She also has so many great quotes quotes:
"Wit beyond measure is a mans greatest treasure"
"Your just as sane as i am!"
"Oooh, look, a Blibbering Humdinger!"
"Nobody's ever asked me to a party before, as a friend! Is that why you dyed your eyebrow, for the party? Should I do mine, too?"
"I hope there's pudding!"
I love how she even has a quote that saddens me a bit "I enjoyed the meetings, too. It was like having friends." ( i find it sad she didn't really have a lot of friends before the D.A.). She also had on that hilarious lion costume in Half blood prince which i loved!

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

1.If he calls you a Mudblood, say "At least I'm no bleached blonde."
2. If he makes fun of you 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-- JUST the part that makes you sick.
9. "Say that one more time you blondie, I dare you!"
10. Take him to Aragog's Hallow. See what happens.
11. Make a sympathetic face and say, "Aww, poor baby. Did you run out of good insults? Maybe daddy can buy you some new ones."
12. Say, Are you naturally stupid? Or do you practice?"

This article is about the hog warts houses, I called it "minds beyond men" because if I were a wizard I would be a ravenclaw (a witty and intelligent house.) what I am mad about is how everybody wants to be a gryfendor just because Harry is in it. As me and Taylor say "you aren't a real fan if you don't know your real house." we'll I am just telling you to find your own house instead of saying your a gryfendor. So here is a small guide to help you determined your house...
Hufflelpuff: kind and loyal
Ravenclaw: smart and witty
Slytherin: ambitious and power hungry
Gryfendor: daring and brave
So I hope that this has let you see your REAL house and not just the one that you want. TAKE MY ADVICE IF YOU ARE A REAL FAN!!!!!

[Chapter 2] Diagon Alley: Ferrets and Pranks

The next few weeks just flew by. Maybe it was because I had something to look forward to. Hermione and Ginny had been writing regularly. All of Hermione's letters were about how much we would have to do as N.E.W.T. students. She had scored eight 'Outstandings' and an 'Exceeds Expectations' and was still disappointed! That girl...she is just...extraordinary! Ron and Harry had done fairly well, failed only in two subjects. They seemed to be having fun at the Burrow, the four of them. Then Ginny said that Phlegm spoilt all the fun. At least they were all together. I was alone.
I stayed at home all day doing nothing at all. Well, I cleaned my room repeatedly, cooked food and ate it myself and left some for Mum, listened to music and read books. The normal stuff.
Staying at home made me feel like things were normal. They seemed to be. Except for Dad's absence, that was very difficult to get used to. I tried my best though.

I am not biased in this I love them both.
Its going to be hard to compare the two greatest books and movie series ever made. Although I will try anyway!
MOVIES
1. Grossing- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows made 1.328 Billion Dollars. Lord of the Rings: Return of the King made 1.119 Billion Dollars. Potter wins this round!
2. Scenes- Harry Potter had really great scenes. Such as the battle between Dumbledore and Voldemort in the OotP or the Battle of Hogwarts in the DH. LotR also has great scenes such as the battle of Helms Deep, Pelennor Fields, and when Frodo throws in the ring. I think I'm going to have to give it to LotR just for the shear magnitude and epicness of it all.
3. Acting- Both movies cast gave it there all. I could always feel there emotion. I cried with them, laughed with them, and made the journey with them. I'm going to say its a tie between them!

BOOKS.

•“Tired of walking in on Harry, Hermione and Ron all over the school, Professor McGonagall had given them permission to use the empty Transfiguration classroom at lunchtimes.”

•“Stars winking in front of his eyes, he grabbed the top of the hat to pull it off and felt something long and hard beneath it.•“‘Nice socks, Potter,’ Moody growled as he passed, his magical eye staring through Harry’s robes.”

•“‘Everyone seems quite relieved, though, considering they all knew I’d get off,’ said Harry, smiling.”

•“Hagrid’s pumpkins swelled to the size of garden sheds.”

•“‘Potter, you can skin Malfoy’s shrivelfig’”

•“‘It’s no wonder I can’t get it out, Hermione, you packed my old jeans, they’re tight.’”

•“He could feel it vibrating and let go; it hung in midair, unsupported, at exactly the right height for him to mount it.”

•“‘When I came out it bobbed along a bit and I followed it behind the shed and then it…well, it went inside me.’”

Here is yet another Ron-centric one shot. He deserves something dedicated to him on his birthday.

Ever wondered what was going on inside our favorite Ginger's head when he sacrificed himself in the PS. This is my version.

DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT BLONDE, ENGLISH, MILLIONAIRE OR A WOMAN. SO ITS PRETTY CLEAR I DO NOT OWN HARRY POTTER.

English is not my first language. Not even my second. So, I apologize for grammar and spelling mistakes.

Read and comment.
If you are on ff.net, review link. It'll make my day.

He did it again. He had spectacularly managed to muck things up. If he ever got famous, people will call him The-Boy-Who-Mucked-Things-Up.
Well, at least it has more words than The-Boy-Who-Lived.

Seriously, how could somebody manage to screw up one thing they are good at? Apparently, chess was not the only thing he was good at. He was master of screwing things up as well. The-Boy-Who-Screwed-Up.

All I could see was a magnificent building, with thousands of windows and lights. Many people were walking up the steps to the main entrance. An old man with a long white beard wore purple and silver robes, with a pointed hat to match. He had a list with names over it, ticking them off as the people reached the doors. I walked towards the man, and noticed all of the other people were in robes with a school crest embroidered onto them. I wore only my jeans and tshirt. "Name?" The old man asked me. "Ronald Weasley" I replied and looked at him. He scanned the list and shook his head. "Sorry, young man. It seems you have not been deemed magical enough to attend Hogwarts". At this thought, I fell to my knees. Other people walked past me and went into the school. A small boy with black hair walked past me and turned to look at me. He winked at me and smiled, then walked into the school. "Ron! Wake up!" Ginny was shouting. I opened my eyes. I was still sat in the weeds, staring into the sky. It was now dark outside, I could only just make out Ginny's flaming red hair. "Dad said he wanted to talk to you" she said and walked back into the house. I got up and followed her. When I reached the...
