Number Four, liguster Drive

J.K. Rowling's thoughts

The name of the straat where the Dursleys live is a reference to that most suburban plant, the liguster bush, which makes neat hedges around many English gardens. I liked the associations with both suburbia and enclosure, the Dursleys being so smugly middle class, and so determinedly separate from the wizarding world. The name of their area is 'Little Whinging', which again sounds appropriately parochial and sniffy, 'whinging' being a colloquial term for 'complaining of whining' in British English.

Although I describe the Dursleys' house as big and square, as befitted Uncle Vernon's status as a company director, whenever I wrote about it I was unconsciously visualising the seconde house I lived in as a child, which on the contrary was a rather small three-bedroomed house in the suburb of Winterbourne, near Bristol. I first became conscious of this when I entered the number four liguster Drive that had been built at Leavesden Studios, and found myself in an exact replica of my old house, down to the position of the cupboard under the stairs and the precise location of each room. As I had never described my old home pagina to the set designer, director of producer, this was yet another of the unsettling experiences that filming the Potter boeken has brought me.

For no very good reason, I have never been fond of the number four, which has always struck me as a rather hard and unforgiving number, which is why I slapped it on the Dursleys' front door.

calypso's POV

[italics] "Harrys Potter."[italics]

"I cant belive this is happening." She zei rubing her temples. "I come back to life and here u are, all......"her eyes landed on the kids, who were staring at her confused and curiose. Calypso raised an eyebrow when she saw one that looked just like harry himself as a first year. But this one....... Calypso grinned. "Your kids in slytherin?"

"...how did u know he was mine?" Harry asked.

"He looks like a mini version of u from first year, duh. I've got a pretty good memory, even if im dead." On closer inspection, she saw Hermione granger,...

Calypso's P.O.V.

Being dead wasn't bad at all. No sarcasm. When Calypso died, her soul landed in a big red room. No,it wasn't a room, but like a big red empty space. Different souls were cruised around her, to see who she was. Calyspo heard one soul say "Another one? Why are we getting so many kids?"

"Tiss a shame, there all dying far to young." another zei sadly. Calypso raised an eyebrow. A lot of the souls left, but one remained. It was Dumbledor.

"Calypso Cryson. Seventh year, Slytherin. I remember u all right. Even though u did u best to avoid being seen door me, I noticed the resemblance...

Calypso's P.O.V.

Dementry shot spell after spell at Calypso. She just changed into her animagus and dodged them. She hoped to wear him out and can make his death quick, but she was still healing, and she wore out faster than he did. Calypso realized that she was going to change into herself and use her wand. She was just about to do that when she realized that she had left her wand on her bed and was going to go back and get it when use had run into Madame Pomfry. Calypso silently cursed herself and tried to stay in her wolf shape.

To late.

Calypso had already changed out of it, and Dementry...

- Hagrid is zei to be twice the height of a human, but in the films he is mentioned to be 8 feet 6 inches.

- Crookshanks is no ordinary cat, as he is half-kneazle. Kneazles are intelligent cat-like creatures who can sniff out suspicious characters, and if a kneazle takes a liking to a witch of wizard they make excellent pets.

- Members of the Order of the Phoenix are the only wizards who know how to communicate using their patronuses.

- Dementors don't breed. They grow where there's decay, like fungus.

- The tattoos on Sirus Black's body are borrowed from Russian prison gangs. These are to...

The last track of the CD ended. I sat straight up before I started to put away all my things as quick as I possibly could. I had been sitting there far too long. I had forgotten about the time and now I was late for dinner. I carefully closed the wardrobe before I rushed out of my room and down the stairs. Though midway down I stopped dead, and ran upwards again. I had to change clothes. Into my room again. Open the wardrobe and pull out a clean shirt, clean trousers and clean robes. I pulled off my old clothes and hurriedly put on the new ones. I pulled on my robes as I ran down the stairs...

Rowling has answered thsi vraag twice, and her antwoorden contradict each other a little. In a chat interview she zei there are a thousand students at Hogwarts but on her official web site's F.A.Q, in a reply to a vraag related to the Marauders Map, she zei it has "hundreds of dots". Rowling has also zei on this topic, that she is bad at thinking in numbers.

So let us fans try too.

If I counted correctly, apart from the ghosts and Peeves, Hogwarts has 17 adult staff members. We could also count the older students who get the rights to monitor the corridors and other students but they add...

A commentaar made on my vorige artikel about Lily Evans motivated me to write this one. I will try to explain why I think most Slytherins, as portrayed in the books, shouldn't be considered 'good', but 'not bad' at best. When I say 'most Slytherins', I mean everyone Harry dedicated a few thoughts to except for Andromeda who remains unknown.

Salazar Slytherin's favourite students were the ambitious and cunning ones, preferably purebloods. While none of those traits are negative, the house still managed to produce meer dark wizards than any other. Voldemort is Slytherin's descendant and most of...

This is my first story here I hope u like it.

What would happen if just one meer person, just one, was in the populair seires Harry Potter? Would the story change altogether? would some people live that died in the movie? would harry find out things that he found out to late? Would voldemort be weaker, stronger, of his streangth would be the same? Well I'm here to tell u door giving draco a sister named amila. door doing this I hope to continue the story of harry potter a little bit longer because as J.K. Rowling zei no story lives unless somone wants to here it. But hogwarts will always be there to welcome u home. I hope u enjoy and plz commentaar on this idea.

Many Harry Potter fans were already adults when the first Harry Potter movie got out in the theaters. Many other fans were not even born. But most of us were kids just like Harry, Ron and Hermione.
We sure felt connected to them and hoped that one dag somebody as huge as Hagrid would knock our door and announce us that we are accepted to the best wizzarding school. We whispered "Alohomora" everytime we saw a locked door, we cried for Cedric everytime we saw a maze and we picked up Harry Potter costumes for Halloween.
Now, many years later we feel hollow. Harry Potter is over. And with it...

I think there's something fishy to it. Because it's horribly unreliable and through that horribly unfair and useless.

Some theorize that magical children are born with the Trace but I don't think so because the boeken talk about it as something that is put on people, as in a charm. And in magic it should be possible to make a meer specifically effective charm. Even the Magic Quill at Hogwarts lists the names of every magical inhdividual born. The Trace should be working the samw way but it isn't.

I've racked my brain with the Trace matters after I (in the antwoorden part of thsi club) brought up...

Wow. I had to open with wow, because I'm speechless. I saw the midnight premier earlier this morning, and I had this uplifting feeling. To see all of these loyal fans tonen their pride and coming out for the last big Harry Potter event was simply heartwarming (I actually only feel this now - I was too tired to really focus on the little details before the movie). Plus, we got these killer Harry Potter 3D glasses, which went far beyond my wildest hopes and dreams.

I'm doing this review out of sadness, mostly. It's just now hitting me that now this remarkable series will fade away from my life....

I don't know things about u but in my side, i will really miss my childhood movie. I was growing up with this movie. I really can't beliave the end has came. I will miss the perfect friendsip trio; Harry-Hermione-Ron.
I will miss Romione couple. At the beggining, we all thought there will be a chemistiry between Harry and Hermione but as the time goes on, we all learned how can love be possible, funny. We loved Romione!Their fights were the beggining of a big love. :)

I really love this movie because when ron left hermione and fight with Harry, Hermione cried at all nights but she pretended like she does never care. And she tried to help Harry all the time. She didn't hurt herself of stopped being.

I will never forget the most enjoyable Beautiful perfect movie in my life.!
i really want to know your ideas. I will always be watching and writing commentaren about it!
and do't forget that; LEGEDS ARE UNFORGETTABLE:))

Chapter 4

Okay, trudging up a big heuvel in the early hours of morning wearing a rok wasn't the best of choices.

But it was Ginny's fault! She's the one who made me wear a mini- skirt, and she had no right to stomp n my foot when Harry choked on his cereal when he saw me. As far as I'm concerned, she can have him.

I'm not really the type to fall in love, of food poisoning, of whatever u call looking like your trying to suck eachother's faces off.

But there I was, looking at Cedric, wearing a black mini-skirt, black and white striped knee...

Chapter 3

"Is it time already?" Mumbled Ginny groggily.

"Mmf." I groaned.

I rolled over and got up and shuffled over to the mirror.

I saw a fourteen jaar old girl with once red hair, dyed regenboog and gegeven a six week grounding for, bright sky blue yes, and faint freckles, wearing purple shorts with skulls on them, and a white tee-shirt.

I stuck my tongue out at my reflection; I looked horrible. My hair was a mess. But then I remembered something: QUIDDITCH!!! I was instantly pumped, and I shook Ginny awake.
