The Four Houses - a Way to Bring Potencial Friends Together...
**This article includes minor SPOILERS and quatations from the books, so in case you have been living in a hole and don't know the ending yet, you might reconsider reading this.
Notice it is also purely opinional and any nerd-rant-ish style is not meant to offened.**

Since sorting has been introduced very early in the book, Harry learns about it from Draco before even going to Hogwarts, it seems like inseperatable part of Harry Potter Universe, a static thing that took place since the founding of our favourite Magical School (it is even in the Hogwarts' crest).
It was the base of some subplots, the most notably the Quiddich teams and the general rivaly between houses.
A lot of readers guessed/took quizes to determine to which house they belong.

[i]You might belong in Griffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve and chivarly
Set Griffindors apart;
You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just and loyal,

Here's a list of my favorite Harry Potter books, my least favorite being at the bottom and my favorite being at the top. All image credit goes to burdge_bug on deviant-Art. Go check her out, her art is AMAZING!

7.Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets

I do love this book, I really do. I had so much fun figuring out everything with Harry, but to be truthful, it was a bit boring at times. It dragged out during quidditch matches - the unnecessary fights with Draco, the drama. Moaning Myrtle was EXTREMELY annoying, hate her, and the book could've done without her. The mystery's in other books are much more interesting than in this one.

6.Harry Potter & the Philosopher's Stone

My favorite parts in this book are the parts were we get to know all the characters. It's the first book, it's the porthole to all the magic. The mystery had me very stumped and I loved the trio's personality's in this book. Quirell was a great villian. I don't have many problems with this book, except that the beginning was a bit slow and such, other than that, it's fine. I just like the...

Scorpius POV
The Sorting had just ended, and I spotted Rose making her way across the Great Hall to the Slytherin table. "Move over, Albus, make room!" she ordered upon arrival. She squeezed in between Albus and myself, as many people stared.Rose being a Gryffindor, many were shocked that she would sit at our table. "So, how are your new students? That one girl we got, Lacey I think, is really smart. But she's kinda mean." Rose ranted. She always had something to say, and I had no idea how she managed to keep quiet in class. I informed her that at least 3 of the kids we had got were going to be bullies. "Oh, great." she said, shifting in her seat so that she was closer to me than Albus. "Oh, look! Headmistress McGonagall is going to speak!" she exclaimed.

Later
The headmistress had finished her speech, dismissing us to our dorms. Rose, Albus, and I quickly got up to leave, trying to get ahead of the huge traffic jam that was sure to follow. We lost Albus somewhere in the crowd, and Rose and I were shunted into a room that had the door open. The door slammed shut, and I thought I heard a lock click. Rose sprung to her feet, tried the door, and as I...

you guys wanted part 4, so here it is!

After several hours I finally excepted that there was no one around. At all. The silence scared me. I went inside the house and thought for a while. Ginny was gone. But how? How could she have just disappeared in the middle of the night? I needed comfort. Ron. Hermione. But then I remembered the silence of our muggle town. I would never know for sure if they were there if I never contacted them. I decided to leave it that way. Leave it as my last glimmer of hope. It was possible that they were still there. It was. I needed that reassurance. Just then I heard a loud crash, and there he stood. He was in my doorway. The door lay cracked and broken on the floor, as defeated as if it had just been struck by a giant.

Part 5: Sneak Peek

And that it had. Well, a half-giant anyways. "Hagrid!" I shouted with delight.

thanks for reading! tell me what you think. i'll write more soon!

Butter "Beer" recipe from Harry Potter I made it myself. Its sorta like hot chocolate but without chocolate. You take 1 or if for two people 2 cups of milk put it on the stove keep it from boiling. You just want it hot but you dont want it to really boil. Ok add a cup of butterscotch schnapps. Then a splash of vanilla extract. A half of cup of sugar. Then a couple of spoon fulls of vanilla flavor coffee creamer. add a little yellow food coloring. And a tsp of butter. Then top with WHipped cream!!

1. Ask him why he 'doesn't have such a cool scar?'

2. Laugh at him.

3. Wake him up by singing Beach Boys songs in his ear. 'Round, round, get around, I get around...'

4. Knit him things. Really hideous things.

5. Give him kangaroo-ears for a month.

6. Smile during Death-Eater meetings and say you taught him everything he knows.

7. Chew bubblegum all the time. Should he address you, your only response will be a series of huge bubbles in quick succession, the last of which will burst everywhere and make a mess.

8. Dance the Funky Chicken.

9. Ask him when was the last time he took a bath.

10. Pat him on the head and give him flowers when his plans are foiled yet again.

11. If you ever need to say 'Like taking candy from a baby', be sure to add 'Of course, SOME of us might find that harder than others.' Stare pointedly at him.

12. Play 'knock-&-run' at his bedchamber door late at night.

All the films presented here have had a theatrical run in the last twenty years, and films that have not played during this period do not appear in the chart due to ticket-price inflation, population size and ticket purchasing trends not being considered. Gone with the Wind—first released in 1939—has earned $3.3 billion globally when adjusted to contemporary prices, making it the best all-time performer at the box office.[10] The most represented year on the chart is 2009 with seven films, while 2011 currently stands at five with some films still playing.

Please read and tell me what you all think about it! My first one *fingers crossed*

Summary: My first ever fanfic! The Next Generation kids can't get enough during Christmas at the Burrow! All ages set two years before epilogue.

"Watch out!"

A snowball sailed through the air, nearly missing a blonde head as it hit a tree.
"Take that!" cried fifteen year old Victoire Weasley as she got up and aimed a snowball at her sister, thirteen year old Dominique Weasley. Dominique squealed as the snowball collided with her forehead. "I'll get you for that!" she yelled, as she chucked a snowball through the air. It missed Victoire as she ducked and hit ten year old James Potter who was hiding behind her. "OI!" he cried as the snowball caught him in the stomach. Behind him, seven year old Lily Potter giggled in joy as she watched her cousins have it out in a fight to the death.

Or to the point of freezing, more likely.

The cast of the Harry Potter films were always generous in helping our organization grant wishes to young fans and in celebration of today’s new release, we would like to tell you about them.

In 2004 Kids Wish Network granted the wish of Alexandra, a Harry Potter fan suffering from spina bifida and hydrocephalus. Spina bifida is a birth defect that occurs when a portion of the spinal column fails to develop and close properly, and hydrocephalus is a condition in which the cerebrospinal fluid builds up in the skull. She has endured many surgeries and relies on a wheelchair for mobility.

For her wish, Alexandra was given the opportunity to attend the premiere of Harry Potter’s third major motion picture, The Prisoner of Azkaban, in New York City. First, on the red carpet, she saw actor Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) along with one of the Phelps brothers (George/Fred Weasley). Though these two weren’t close enough to Alexandra for a meeting, Jamie Waylett (Crabbe) came around next and made his way over for an autograph and a photo.

Lovely People, Can I thank anyone who has read or reviewed/commented on this Story, means a lot… this is dedicated to anyone who has liked or commented and what not on this story…Love you all, now don’t forget to tell me what you think. Leave me a message at the end :D

Chapter 4
He stood near the door, not with the usual pig-headed arrogance he usually possessed but with a sort of quiet confidence, not quite making eye contact but refusing to look at the ground. By this time the rest of the class was sat down, it was the smallest class, only having fifteen students so naturally it was in the smallest classroom. Hermione had chosen a desk in the middle of the room, no one sat with her, it was odd really, and the only other spare seat then the one next to her was the one behind her, next to Lavender Brown. Normally Lavender would have sat next to Parvati Patil- her best friend- but Parvati was sat with her Twin Sister Padma. Both girls shoot Lavender countless apologetic looks but Lavender didn’t seem to care. With Padma being in Ravenclaw and not Gryffindor like her sister they very rarely got to talk to each other.

A few notes before we begin. First, the title above is only tentative. I couldn't think of a better one. Second, I have no plan to publish this. However, if you think it ought to be, you can print it out and get it published. Just be sure to give credit where credit is due. Third, I wrote this from the third person so that it feels more like the other books. Fourth, if you post a favorable comment, I'll put a sneak peek of the next part on your wall. Now, on to the story.

PROLOGUE: THE FAMILY
The five Potters made their way through the crowd at King's Cross. James, the eldest of the three young Potters, wheeled the trolley so it faced the barrier between platforms nine and ten. With a practiced air, he jogged the trolley straight at the barrier. In an instant, he was gone.
Mrs. Potter and Lily, youngest of the three, were next. They also vanished as soon as they reached the barrier. Mr. Potter led his youngest son, Albus, toward the barrier. It was Albus' first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, so he was a bit scared.

This story is told from Albus' pov. This idea had been kicking around in my mind for a couple days. Setting, the Potters' dinner table. When? The summer of Albus' first year at Hogwarts.

Lily was stting the table while I was fighting with James. It was hard to tell what we were fighting over at this point. Probably Quidditch.
Finally, Dad was angry enough to leave the letter he was writing and pull us apart. Mum always commented on how James and I looked just like Dad.
I could see Dad's scar, on his forehead. At school, I had heard some strange stories about it. Every time I tried asking about it, he put me off, forcing Mum to come to my rescue.
It took a few moments for us to calm down. By that time, Lily had finished setting the table.
"Dinner's ready," Mum called. James and I raced to the table.

There was a lull in the conversation. I decided to make my move.
"Dad?" I asked. "Where did you get that scar? Everyone at school kept talking about what they heard from their parents. It all seems too incredible to be true."

"Yeah!" Nina stood and turned to Kate. "He wanted to kiss me. This is what people do, Kate. They're kissing!" She pursed her lips and moved to the common room, leaving speechless friend alone in a dark corridor.

Scorpius POV
The train stopped. The lights in our compartment shut of. I felt something grab my arm. "Scorpius, d'you know what's going on?" squeaked Rose, obviously terrified. "No, but I'm sure we're fine." I replied. It was Second Year, and we were on our way to Hogwarts. A figure stopped in front of the door to our compartment. The door slid open, and there stood the conductor. He informed me and Rose that the train had broken down, and that we would b spending the night on the train. He waved his wand and bunks appeared. "Make yourselves comfortable." he ordered. He slid the door shut, and I turned to Rose. "So, what should we do now?" I asked her. "Fancy a game of Exploding Snap?"

That Night
Rose and I had to have played 40 games of Exploding Snap that day. It was late, around maybe 11 at night. I was laying on the top bunk, staring at the ceiling. I heard Rose muttering something about "Hugo... Stop!" I peeked over the side of my bunk. She had kicked off her covers, and her pillow was on the floor. I quietly climbed down the ladder. My...

As everyone made to sit down in the large room, McGonagall held out her hand and called out to the class of 7th years.
“Before the start of term Myself and the other teachers decided that something need to be done to help build house unity between the four houses, we saw the easiest was to do this was to put everyone in seating plans in classes, at least up until Christmas, you may have noticed that this year all four houses have been mixed together, we have decided that the biggest rivalries are between Gryffindor and Slytherin and Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff. I will read out your name and your partners and show you to your seat, I want no complaining, this is a final decision and no changes shall be made.” A few groans were heard as the professor shooed them all to the back of the room, Hermione already seemed to know what would happen the professor started to call out names, starting from the front of the room and filling up to the back, around the middle Ginny’s name was called.

this is a song that I wrote, and it describes how Snape felt when he found Lily, dead, in her home. Btw, the parts in brackets are the chorus,and I will only type the chorus one time. ENJOY:

I found you lying on the floor,
dead
Had to hold my heart higher than my
head
[c]I took you in my arms and said
[h]Always, always
[o]I'll always love you
[r]Always, always
[u]After all this time
[s]Still wish you were mine
The rat did what his master said
Very next day, I found you dead

He only wanted the boy,
You stood in his way
He played with you like a toy
And you died that day
