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 más appropriate word. Any true Harry Potter fan, American...

*DISCLAIMER* I did not come up with any of these, I found them all online and put them together...the enlaces which i used are cited in the description. So let's not waste any más time and get started with the 50 misceláneo Harry Potter Facts!!

1) Hermione's last name was going to be Puckle.
2) Hedwig was played por 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) fred 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....

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,...

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 comentarios on some of them.

1. There is no such thing as a pureblood family. Every wizarding family has a muggle o a few among them. Some just choose to cruzar, cruz them over in their family árbol 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....

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

How often does it happen that we decide to watch a film in the theatre, then buscar it online, and then leave it to finish downloading first so that we could watch it some other time, and then end up, ultimately, forgetting about it altogether? Quite often, I’d say!
There’s nothing wrong in choosing to download the film tu are here for, but when tu can link, why not simply sit down and enjoy it first, and then worry about whether tu want to keep this film with your forever! It’s not only acceptable in the film-fan world, but it’s also the idea in vogue. Furthermore, outing to cinema...

A one-shot Harry Potter fan fiction..

What was Ron thinking when he received his prefect badge? What if Molly never showed up when Hermione was 'trying' to congratulate him?

It is from Ron's POV. Set is before 5th año when he received his prefect badge. Some actions will be similar to what JKR wrote but some will be different.What would've been Ron's reaction if Molly never showed up? End will be different from what JKR wrote.

Is It Worth Crying?



Prefect Badge?

In his letter?

He's shocked beyond point when he came to know that Harry hadn't been made prefect; but what he was feeling now can't be...

Bellatrix Lestrange
I have been on the Harry Potter spot for a while now and I constantly find myself getting asked "why do tu like Bellatrix?" So I decided to type up this article. Thank tu lifeisgoodx3 for inspiring me to do so.

So why would some one like a person who killed Sirius, Dobby, Tonks, and tortured Hermione and the Longbottms? Well I actually have multiple reasons as to why I like her; Bellatrix stands for what she believes in, she's crazy and funny, pretty, unique, strong and confident, she has an interesting story behind her, I can relate to her, she has potential to be a good guy, and I have a...

Here's a comparison and contrast essay I wrote for school - keep in mind my English teacher has never read Harry Potter, so I had to explain stuff.

When comparing a book and a film, o something similar, the first thing one thinks about is obviously the plot. And in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, at first glance, you'll find it's rather similar in both the book and the film. Harry, Ron and Hermione, the main trio, go to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for their sixth year. They're shocked when they find out that ex-Potions Master Severus Snape has been named Defence Against...

Were Sirius Black somehow capable of getting some short and other very, very long messages to certain people at the moment he died, this is what he would have said.
To Hermione Granger: I am forever grateful for your intelligence and courage. I truly and literally owe tu my soul.
To Ron Weasley: I’m still really sorry I had to break your leg. It was necessary. I’m sure tu understand.
To Peter Pettigrew: I will find tu in Hell someday. tu mark my words.

December 1, 1944
    Minerva McGonagall walked down the corridor with her head held high; she simply couldn't help but feel pleased with herself. And, who could, for that matter? She had finally done it, she was finally a teacher at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
    The young Transfiguration teacher walked confidently into the great hall on her first día of teaching, and she felt a small jolt of satisfaction as she passed por the Gryffindor mesa, tabla on her way to the staff table. It was not that she had ever disliked sharing meals with her fellow...
