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 еще 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,...

I decided to write this Статья because I have seen many Комментарии lately that kind of bother me.

There are several picks in which this has come up, but the last one I have seen, and the reason why I am Письмо this is the question: ¿Have Ты completely changed your attitude towards a character after reading/watching their past stories? (or something along those lines)

It is a really interesting question, and what really caught my attention were the answers, the comments, especially since it wasn't the first time that I am Чтение Комментарии like those.

The thing is that in that pick, James...

1. Ask him why he 'doesn't have such a cool scar?'
2. Laugh at him.
3. Wake him up by Пение пляж, пляжный 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 Ты taught him everything he knows.

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

Hi everyone,
I'm not really a Harry Potter fan, but Ты see, a couple months назад I came across a website called "Always Astrology". It provides a Описание of the twelve zodiac signs (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces), Moon signs, and the planetary placements (I mean like Mercury signs, Venus signs). It also provided a free birth chart calculator. So after doing mine, I've pretty much been obsessed and had done charts for everyone I know, and every character that had a traceable birthday. And I had just done Harry's.

So in case...

I just knew I had to write this Статья after seeing a lot of Фаны debating on the topic:

"Are the Книги или Фильмы better?"

So first of all, my Любовь for Harry Potter didn't start from the books. My mother kept recommending them to me, but I was younger when the Книги came out first. That days, I always judged a book by its cover. So when I saw a Болталка boy with a scar on his forehead standing and 7 Книги about him, I said, "Mom, stop. I don't wanna read it, I feel like it won't be interesting,"

My mom сказал(-а) ok, and we left the bookshop. But from that день on, my Друзья started watching Harry Potter...

 the only weasley I don't like
the only weasley I don't like
So I know I'm gonna receive a lot of hatred for this, but I actually dislike Ginny Weasley. I don't hate her, the series are full of characters I cannot relate to или just don't like for some particular reason, for example Cho is one of them.

When I tell someone I dislike Ginny, they start to answer me like this:

"Go read the books!"

This definitely was worse for me. I disliked book Ginny more, and I got it the moment I finished Чтение the Chamber Of Secrets. She didn't even do anything in the book. It was all Harry saving her and she trembling all the book.

But more, she is wildly overrated in...

Weasley's are a very big family that take part in the movie, so I decided to write their family down. Enjoy <3

Arthur Weasley is the father in the family. He likes muggles and muggle stuff. Works in the Ministry of Magic, Misuse of Muggle Artefacts Office.

Everyone in this club is shipping including me, but nobody has written an analyze Статья about it. So here is one :) Today I'm analyzing a ship I made since I finished Чтение the books.

Albus Dumbledore, and Minerva McGonagall how does that sound? Well, they are both are in important positions in Hogwarts, and both single! Isn't that great? I need a complete clue to their Любовь to ship them, and its дана in the first book. While the movie doesn't have the scene so detailed, I remember the book has it. When Dumbledore is talking with Minerva, after she just transforms back from a cat. Minerva...

There is a reason I entered the Статья type as opinion. This is my opinion and its just what I think so if Ты don’t agree with me don’t need to roast me in the comments. Далее week I will write an Статья about Hermione and Harry’s best ships that I made a Опрос about. But right now, its just my thoughts.

Lets start with Harry. Harry has a relationship with Ginny and I like it in the Книги but after watching the films I felt like their Любовь was all of a sudden and no I don’t wanna accept any clues. When Ginny broke up with Dean Thomas to be with Harry, I felt she was playing around...

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,...

As statistics show, the Harry Potter book-movie partnership and the merchandise which stems from it has seen unprecedented success. Success, which, many could argue, is unreplicatable The reason for this, in my opinion, is that no one has ever fully explored in enough detail the why of Harry Potter. Why does it, in comparison to звезда Wars (which I love), Indiana Jones, (which I've never seen,) and other blockbuster franchises, despite astounding success, has never quite so immersed itself in all facets of pop culture? The generation which grew up with the Книги and films frequently make references...

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

A snowball sailed through the air, nearly missing a blonde head as it hit a tree.
"Take that!" cried fifteen год old Victoire Weasley as she got up and aimed a snowball at her sister, thirteen год old Dominique Weasley. Dominique squealed as the snowball collided with her forehead. "I'll get Ты for that!" she yelled, as she chucked a snowball through...
