Throughout the Harry Potter books, there are some variations between the Bloomsbury (British) and Scholastic (American) editions. Below the first section on "Philosopher's vs. Sorcerer's" is a section on other different terminologies used.

Philosopher's vs. Sorcerer's

When Scholastic was publishing Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in America, they decided to rename the book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. They claimed that the American and British uses of the word philosopher were a bit different, so therefore sorcerer was a madami appropriate word. Any true Harry Potter fan, American...

HOGWARTS STAFF
Headmaster Albus Dumbledore: His first name is from the Latin word alba, "white." His last name, according to Rowling interviews, is Old English for "bumblebee." In colour symbolism, white often stands for purity, so the headmaster's name suggests honour and a hard-working nature ("busy as a bee").
Professor Binns: A bin is a large storage container. A dustbin is British English for a garbage can. This boring professor could be described as a ghostly storage for information that many Hogwarts students view as rubbish.
Headmaster Armando Dippet: Armando is from the name Armand,...

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,...

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 artikulo 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...

I pag-ibig 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 listahan 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--...

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 paborito 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.

Now that Harry Potter is over, I’ve made a little listahan of the films from my least-favorite to most paborito (as of now…it tends to change), listing some of the pros and cons of each. I wrote this just for fun, and I’d like to hear your thoughts as well. This is just my humble opinion, and I’m sure it will be different from yours, but no rude comments please :)



#8. HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE (2004) Mike Newell
The fourth Harry Potter movie, whilst not being exactly the longest, feels like it’s the longest. The special effects are great, but in my point of view they hardly...

1. I will not poke Hufflepuffs with spoons, nor will I insist that their House mga kulay indicate that they are "covered in bees".

2. No matter how good a fake Australian accent I can do, I will not imitate Steve Irwin during Care of Magical Creatures class.

3. "I've heard every possible joke about Oliver Wood's name" is not a challenge.

4. Putting up Doug Henning posters in Filch's office is not appropriate.

5. I will not go to class skyclad.

6. The Giant Squid is not an appropriate petsa to the Yule Ball.

7. I will not use Umbridge's quill to write, "I told you I was hardcore".

By the way, all I own is Hailey Potter. The others own themselves.

With Harry Potter's firstborn son on the way, literally, Hailey sits him down to have a littlle chat. Could Harry finally be getting the family he always longed for? Or will their past troubles crowd out the possibility of a future?))

 The Chamber of Scerets
The Chamber of Scerets
Chamber of Memories
October 31, 1992
    Minerva McGonagall sat gazing out of her bedroom window into the rain swept grounds of Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry. It was nearly midnight, but Minerva was unable to sleep; the event of the evening were still playing in her head. "The Chamber Of Secrets has been opened; enemies of the heir, beware". The image of the ominous message on the pader seemed to be etched on the insides of her eyelids. She shivered at the thought of the chamber being opened again. Memories began to resurface, memories that she had long tried...

The Mirror of Erised: Erised is Desire spelled backward, or how it would appear in a mirror. Also, the inscription reads "Erised stra ehru oyt ube cafru oyt on wohsi," which read in a mirror reads, "I ipakita not your face but your hearts desire." (Thanks, Kathryn)

"Oh, ilipat over," Hermione snarled. She grabbed Harry's wand, tapped the lock and whispered, "Alohomora!"
The lock clicked and the door swung open -- they piled through it, shut it quickly and pressed their ears against it, listening.

Book 5 Mistakes
NOTE: Many of these book mistakes were corrected in later versions, so the mistake may not appear in your HP book.
* The cover of OOTP shows Harry in the Department of Mysteries holding his wand in his left hand. However, it is clearly stated that his right arm is his wand arm.

* On page 1, Harry is lying in his Aunt's hydrangea bush, but on page 7 he recalls that "someone magical had been near him as he lay among Aunt Petunia's dying begonias..." Thanks, Trixie!

Possible Explanation: Aunt petunia may have had a variety of plants and bulaklak in her garden.

According to the books there are supposed to be 700 Quidditch fouls. However I'll mention sortly 10 of the commonest ones, with the help of Harry Potter wiki.=)

1.Blagging
An often-used foul which can be commited sa pamamagitan ng all the players of a team. It is consisted of grabbing the broomstick tail of a player from the opposing team in order to delay or thwart them. We see it in the "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of the Azkaban" book, commited sa pamamagitan ng Draco Malfoy against Harry Potter.

2.Blatching
In order to happen, a player has to fly towards another player with deliberate intention to collide with him or...

I do not own Harry Potter, or A Midsummer Night's Dream. I did have a dream in summer one time, though...I think.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

CORNELIUS
Now, Lydia, our nuptial hour
Draws on apace; four happy days bring in
Another moon: but, O, methinks, how slow
This old moon wanes! She lingers my desires,
Like to a step-dame or a dowager
Long withering out a young man revenue.

LYDIA
Four days will quickly steep themselves in night;
Four nights will quickly dream away the time;
And then the moon, like to a silver bow
New-bent in heaven, shall behold the night
Of our solemnities.

Warnings: PG-13. Mild language. Mild violence.
Char.: Barty Crouch Jr, Sirius Black. The Crouch family in the later chaps.
This is NOT a slash fic.
Summary: Sirius and Barty Jr., unaware of it, end up in the same detention, which leads into battle of egos until they have to learn that each others are only human after all and even find something in common. The other chapters are something else though related to the first..
Chapters: Four. (4). The 2nd & later, do not base on any game topic anymore and so are completely written sa pamamagitan ng me and are all about the Crouch family.
