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 thêm 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,...

2. Locate an object of extreme significance to you. An emotional attachment to the object will aid the process and make it easier on your body and soul.

bởi 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 tình yêu 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;

Severus Snape,the missing piece of puzzle of the Harry Potter series.He is also perhaps the most crucial character in the whole series and after its completion,many readers' favourite.In short,he is JK Rowling's masterstroke.

But to be frank,even a few days back I could not even sympathize with Severus.In the initial sách he was just a menacing person who gives the trio a hard time without really any proper reason.He was not even a just professor always favoring his own house students.Harry didn't like him either of course & suspected his involvement in the many dark things that start happening...

I decided to write this bài viết because I have seen many các bình luận 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 nghề viết văn this is the question: ¿Have bạn 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 đọc các bình luận like those.

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

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

So? Hotness has absolutely no correlation to diễn xuất ability. He was also in Harry Potter first.


2. Taylor Lautner, I mean, have bạn SEEN those muscles?

NOT HOT. Strange nose, closed up eyes and no diễn xuất ability. That is just my personal opinion. As I said, hotness has no correlation to diễn xuất ability.

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

Sixth Year
Hermione's POV

Oh, I wanted to cú đấm 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....
