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 और 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,...

 A rare and natural beauty
A rare and natural beauty
5. Ginny-For starters, I प्यार her beautiful red hair. It's so gorgeous. I प्यार it when she has that white फूल in her hair, it's pretty. I also प्यार her eyes. She's just stunning. She has an amazing smile. She is such a natural beauty.

4. McGonagall-Now, before आप start calling me weird, let me explain. Have आप seen her as a young woman? She's gorgeous! I प्यार her big eyes, they're so amazing. She has gorgeous hair.

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

To start I would like to say that I am not posting this to be mean या start any fights. I'm posting this because a lot of people ask me why I don't like her या 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 लेख 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...

Now that Harry Potter is over, I’ve made a little सूची of the films from my least-favorite to most प्रिय (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 टिप्पणियाँ 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...

WARNING Total spoilers for lastest film. DO NOT READ IF आप HAVEN'T SEEN IT!!!

I just saw Half-Blood Prince and entertainment wise it's proberly the best so far - so go see it! It has one of the funniest HP scenes ever (Harry taking Felix potion).
BUT it was also the worst in terms of missing information and missing scenes. I'm holding out for DH though as i figured that they purposely missed out stuff in order to bulk up those two films. So here is my सूची of things that truly annoyed me about the film.

1. This one actually counts in at least the last 3 films. Dumbledore just isn't Dumbledore!...

Sorcerer's Stone
The Mirror of Erised: Erised is Desire spelled backward, या 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 दिखाना not your face but your hearts desire." (Thanks, Kathryn)


They could hear footsteps, Filch running as fast as he could towards Peeves' shouts.
"Oh, हटाइए 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.

I do not own Harry Potter, या 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 या 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.

CORNELIUS...

1. Some और minor characters, such as Dobby, were only included in the films where their roles were pivotal. Others such as Peeves were excluded entirely. The development of minor relationships such as Tonks/Lupin and Bill/Fleur was cut.

2. The locations for Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione's first kisses were both altered in the films. Some smaller scenes between the couples were also changed या added in. Scenes such as Harry and Hermione dancing in Deathly Hallows were added to please their प्रशंसकों and to create और of an impression of a प्यार triangle.

3. Some characters' appearances didn't fully...

Although Dobby was a smaller character we all must admit that we cried at his death. Unless we're heartless. Dobby was full of such life and kindness. He had such compassion for Harry and appreciated him. He wanted to save Harry because Harry had helped him which often put Harry in a worse place. Harry and Dobby eventually became फ्रेंड्स even though they weren't close at first. Dobby was द्वारा Harry's side throughout everything even when Harry didn't want him to be. Dobby had few close relationships. He had a very close one with Harry and he was still trying to find a way to thank Harry for freeing...

*Diagon Alley is a cobbled wizarding सड़क, स्ट्रीट and shopping area located in लंडन 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 प्रशंसक were all they needed to produce this effect.
*DISCLAIMER* I did not come up with any of these, I found them all online and put them together...the लिंक्स which i used are cited in the description. So let's not waste any और time and get started with the 50 बिना सोचे समझे Harry Potter Facts!!

1) Hermione's last name was going to be Puckle.
2) Hedwig was played द्वारा a male in the movies.
3) If a Muggle were to come across Hogwarts, all they would see was a sign that said, "Keep out, dangerous building."
4) फ्रेड and George were born on April Fool's Day... That should explain their mischievous acts :)
5) Snape was partially based on a teacher JKR once had....

If not little known, at least little remembered. ;) I've collected here eleven (in my opinion) of the most interesting and useful ones. Plus my टिप्पणियाँ on some of them.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~

1. There is no such thing as a pureblood family. Every wizarding family has a muggle या a few among them. Some just choose to पार करना, क्रॉस them over in their family पेड़ and pretend they don't exist and instead claim themselves as purebloods.

^I can see Blacks and Malfoys doing that. But makes me wonder why were the Crouches noted as purebloods then, as evidently the father and son were not passionate about purity of blood....
