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...

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
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.

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

To start I would like to say that I am not posting this to be mean o start any fights. I'm posting this because a lot of people ask me why I don't like her o 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 articulo 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 amor Draco Malfoy so much! And we all know that he has a knack for good comebacks. So, these are some things tu can say o do when he insults you. Let's get this lista started!

1.If he calls tu a Mudblood, say "At least I'm no bleached blonde."
2. If he makes fun of tu 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.

Guys, this is for those of tu who enjoy reading/support Ron&Hermione Pairing.

Sixth Year
Hermione's POV

Oh, I wanted to puñetazo, ponche her. Right then and there, and shove her to the floor for good measure. I'm talking about Lavender Brown, who had her lips pressed against the one person I loved enough to feel immediate hatred for her. Ron. I wanted to do horrible things to her. Instead, I stood there in shock, tears welling up in my eyes. Harry turned to face me, and I turned away, running towards my dormitory. I slammed the door, which made not even a dent in the sound that was coming from downstairs....

#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...

At my uni we've been studying the way gender and sexism shapes the education curriculum.

This was an articulo we were actually dado to read and debate about in a seminar:

"Harry Potter's girl trouble
The world of everyone's favorito! kid wizard is a place where boys come first.
By Christine Schoefer

Four factors made me go out and buy the Harry Potter books: Their impressive lead on the bestseller lists, parents' raves about Harry Potter's magical ability to turn kids into passionate readers, my daughters' clamoring and the mile-long waiting lists at the public library. Once I opened "The Sorcerer's...

I'm basing this review mostly on J.K. Rowling's official words and a little on the books's content. I write this regarding how the pregunta of the educating style is often pondered and some even think "all pure-bloods were inicial schooled".

The purity of one's blood is not relevant to how a child is schooled before Hogwarts. With the exception of families like Malfoys o Blacks who would probably die before sending their kids amongst muggles to learn anything. But whatever few pure-blood families there were left - as far as I see - most of them are not known to be like those two, but have a respectable...

This articulo is reviewing his devotion as a Death Eater, his possible part in the Longbottom torture, his childhood, his father's amor for him - and some other things - always basing on what we can read from the Goblet of fuego book. Weighting on my own interpretation, of course.

I know the vast majority of people seem to have taken a liking of the first impression the book gives on the father-son relationship, especially por Junior's own words, so I respect that view - however those are only his beliefs and not necessarely the truth and I personally like to dig deeper into the possibilities....

Okay so I got this off Livejournal and it just came out to me, so I decided to post it here!
This has nothing to do with preferences o what not, I just thought this was something interesting! It's not everyday we get Harry Potter estrella gossip!

The stories about Emma and Jade seem to have started during the New York premiere of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” The morning after the premiere, The Daily Mail ran an articulo titled, “Emma Watson upstaged por evil Draco Malfoy’s girlfriend at Harry Potter premiere in New York.”

Additionally, a German gossip magazine went into more...

por now everyone probably knows I have a crazy thing for Bellatrix and think she's the most wonderful thing that has happened to the HP series. But there are some huge differences between book Bella and movie Bella. But gosh dammit, I amor them both! Here's why.

Book Bellatrix

Book Bella for me is everything I look for in a villainess. She's ruthless, she's wild, and she's got no mercy and no qualms about her bad deeds.While movie Bellatrix does share this trait I feel as though she has her moments of guilt. I say this because I really don't know how else to interpret this;

So Rowling never really discussed why Bellatrix is so obsessed with Voldemort. And I constantly ponder upon how anyone could find that no-nosed snake-man-boy attractive in any way. With that dicho I wanted to post a few of my theories as well as some of the interesting ones I've seen across the net. Once again, as stated, these are just theories and speculations. No more, no less.

First and foremost I think it's a pretty seguro bet to say that she loves him o at least started to amor him based on the fact that they share similar ideologies. Both loved the idea of pure-blood supremacy. A lot of...

As I did with my articulo like this in the Once spot, Imma do state the song name and pull lyrics from each song that just really remind me Bellatrix and how dicho lyric reminds me of her. For once the lista actually is in order from what I think suits her most to least.


1. Be My Friend por One Eye'd Doll: The en general, general story of the song talks of a serial killer who doesn't understand why she can't seem to make friends. The chorus goes as the following; Serial killers are people too if tu take away the voices I'm just like tu I'll hack tu up and bury tu in my yard but why does making friends...
