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...

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,...

I felt a compelling need to write this artikulo because recently I have found myself madami constantly thrust into situations and debates where I have to defend the Harry Potter fandom against the Twilight fandom, which I despise so much. My best friend and her family are actually major pro-Twilight fans. This past evening made me realize that there are so many reasons why Harry Potter is much madami awesome than Twilight, and its not just the obvious ones either. Thus, I give you all the evidence you will ever need to successfully pwn a Twilight tagahanga trying to bring your fandom down.

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...

*The Great Hall was built for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in 2000 and was used as a key set for six madami 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 tuktok of the room is the teachers' mesa where the Hogwarts Professors sat. Iconic scenes such as the Yule Ball and the Battle of Hogwarts were filmed here.
"MUM, you bought the 'No pulp' kind again..." I grumble, grimacing with my first sip of kahel 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 listahan 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....

Bill and Charlie were still at home, they'd taken a holiday from work. Percy was still in his room stressing over his new Prefect badge. He was polishing it over and over again. Ginny was in the kusina with mum and dad was out at work. I decided to finally go back downstairs. I was sat in my room pagbaba my new magazine, 'Tips on how to Win Quiddich', thinking about all of the ways I could get onto a local team if I could learn how to fly. "Ron, get down here now!" Mum shouted up the stairs. I heard footsteps heading up the first flight of stairs, and threw my book under my bed. I ran to my...

I woke up to them standing above me. Them. The shadows in my bedroom. Unidentifiable shadows. Death eaters? Dementors? I didn't know. What I did know is that they were ripping me from my bed. These figures. Taking me away. I thrashed and shrieked. They persisted. I continued shrieking. Screaming. For Harry. For anyone within hearing distance. No one came. Harry didn't wake. Who were these things? People? Creatures? They wanted me. But why? Why was...

- Hagrid is sinabi to be twice the height of a human, but in the films he is mentioned to be 8 feet 6 inches.

- Crookshanks is no ordinary cat, as he is half-kneazle. Kneazles are intelligent cat-like creatures who can sniff out suspicious characters, and if a kneazle takes a liking to a witch or wizard they make excellent pets.

- Members of the Order of the Phoenix are the only wizards who know how to communicate using their patronuses.

- Dementors don't breed. They grow where there's decay, like fungus.

based on Book 4, all credits and respect to J.K Rowling.

Chapter 1

There I was, in a chimney, squished inbetween two of my brothers, Fred and Ron. We were at the Dursleys, and we had gotten there sa pamamagitan ng Floo Powder. Evidently, they had the fireplace blocked, and now my dad, my brothers, and myself were jammed together.

"Ow! ilipat over!"
"You move!"

Conversation was going on below me, and i was trying to wiggle down to hear. All of a sudden, I heard a BANG, and I came tumbling out, along with everyone.
From underneath George's legs, I could see Dad outstretching his hand for a handshake with a short,...

The new students’ arrival was met with tumultuous applause. But none of the unsorted 11 taon olds heard a thing. For there was only one thought in their mind, where will I be sorted? Then Professor Lovegood sinabi in a silky voice “the sorting hat is ready.” Every one of the 11-year-olds face’s looked fretful. As they filed in, a very old and molding looking hat with a tear at the brim was placed on a dumi ng tao and the tear opened up like a mouth and it broke into song.

Here I am, in an isolated kama wing at St. Mungo’s . And for once, interviewing ( not quite the right way ) Rita skeeter who apparently isnt in the best of condition to reveal about the extraordinary interview with the “MAN WHO LET THE BOY LIVE” and the “EATEN sa pamamagitan ng DEATH” crowd there . sa pamamagitan ng hearing this we can easily guess why she has turned up at St.Mungo’s.

Fred and George, however, found all this very funny. They went out of their way to march ahead of Harry down the corridors, shouting, "Make way for the Heir of Slytherin, seriously evil wizard coming through..."


Harry learned quickly not to feel to sorry for the gnomes. He decided to just drop the first one just over the hedge, but the gnome, sensing weakness, sank his razor sharp teeth into Harry's finger and he had a hard job shaking it off until -
"Wow, Harry - that must have been fifty feet!"

Book 6 Mistakes
NOTE: Many of these book mistakes were corrected in later versions, so the mistake may not appear in your HP book.
* The cover illustration portrays Dumbledore with a normal-looking right hand, but the text makes it clear that it is Dumbledore's right hand and arm (p. 58) that are blackened and shriveled (p. 48), and that are still in such condition at the precise moment depicted sa pamamagitan ng the cover illustration (p. 567). Thanks, Brent!

This is a fanfiction about Lord Voldemort returning as a ghost, and he meets Albus Potter. I'm still working on it, but here's chapter one! And please don't steal my idea!

The Dark Lord tightened his hold on the Elder Wand. This was it; he would finally kill Harry Potter. “Avada Kedavra!” he shouted, aiming the spell at Potter. A green light burst from the tip of his wand, but at that moment, Potter had said, “Expelliarmus!” And so green and red collided. There was a flash, and Lord Voldemort fell. His spell had backfired, failing him; he was dead.
The susunod thing he knew, everywhere around...

Hello! This is my first story. Enjoy.

I looked out at the water, making ripples with my hand. A magic school was on my way.
"Get back inside, your list's here!" my dad called from the house. He was the The God of the Sea, Poseidon.
I went back inside and picked up a paper, and it read:

Dear Percy Jackson,

You have a place in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Please go to The Leaky Cauldron, then to Diagon Alley to get your school things. The train leaves Sep, 1st, at 11:00am, from Platform 9 and 3 quarters.
