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

CHAPTER TWENTY-THREE

VOLDEMORT'S PLAN



While Harry Potter was in Hhogwarts getting hit door Bludgers and losing his memory, Lord Voldemort was having problems of his own. So far, all of his plans to capture Potter had failed.
"What is the news?" Bellatrix Lestrange asked. Like all the Death Eaters, she was fiercely loyal to him, perhaps too much so.
"Nagini tells me that the boy is as vulnerable s ever. Dear, Bellatrix, for the plan to succeed, the boy must trust us," Voldemort said, caressing the huge snake. Bellatrix bowed and went to find Yaxley, who came quickly.
"You requested me?" he said,...

Book 5 Mistakes
NOTE: Many of these book mistakes were corrected in later versions, so the mistake may not appear in your HP book.
* The cover of OOTP shows Harry in the Department of Mysteries holding his wand in his left hand. However, it is clearly stated that his right arm is his wand arm.

* On page 1, Harry is lying in his Aunt's hydrangea bush, but on page 7 he recalls that "someone magical had been near him as he lay among Aunt Petunia's dying begonias..." Thanks, Trixie!

Possible Explanation: Aunt petunia may have had a variety of plants and flowers in her garden.

Characters


Aberforth - In Gaelic, it means "from the river." It is also the name of a small corporation in Edinburgh.
Ambrosius Flume - As the founder of Honeydukes, his first name most likely comes from the word "ambrosia," which is especially sweet and delicious. A "flume" is a "narrow tunnel" that usually has something flowing through it. Combining the names, he can be seen as a supplier of sweets. Coincidentally, there is also an underground tunnel that connects Hogwarts and Honeydukes.
Abraxas (Malfoy) - The supreme Gnostic Deity. Had the body of a man, the head of a cock, and serpents...

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

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,...

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

1.If he calls u a Mudblood, say "At least I'm no bleached blonde."
2. If he makes fun of u 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.
7. Bewitch snowballs to constantly hit him on the back of his head.
8. Sneak a Puking Pastille into his dinner--...

Here is yet another Ron-centric one shot. He deserves something dedicated to him on his birthday.

Ever wondered what was going on inside our favoriete Ginger's head when he sacrificed himself in the PS. This is my version.

DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT BLONDE, ENGLISH, MILLIONAIRE of A WOMAN. SO ITS PRETTY CLEAR I DO NOT OWN HARRY POTTER.

English is not my first language. Not even my second. So, I apologize for grammar and spelling mistakes.

Now that Harry Potter is over, I’ve made a little lijst of the films from my least-favorite to most favoriete (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 commentaren please :)

How often does it happen that we decide to watch a film in the theatre, then zoek 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 u are here for, but when u can link, why not simply sit down and enjoy it first, and then worry about whether u 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 jaar 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 u like Bellatrix?" So I decided to type up this article. Thank u 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...

1. I will not poke Hufflepuffs with spoons, nor will I insist that their House colors indicate that they are "covered in bees".

2. No matter how good a fake Australian accent I can do, I will not imitate Steve Irwin during Care of Magical Creatures class.

3. "I've heard every possible joke about Oliver Wood's name" is not a challenge.

4. Putting up Doug Henning posters in Filch's office is not appropriate.

5. I will not go to class skyclad.

6. The Giant Squid is not an appropriate datum to the Yule Ball.

7. I will not use Umbridge's quill to write, "I told u I was hardcore".
