This text is not meant as critisism to anyone, but only to ponder how much wizards/witches really differ from muggles, and how much of it is only a trick of mind.

In HP related discussions and wikipedia sites, there are often speculations and thoughts painting the magical folk as more different from us than they actually are. I think such habit comes from how the books give a extreme general image; as if the two groups of people had some sort of basic difference with their entire existance.
And I think that somewhat misleading image comes from how no one of the main character trio grew up in...

It was a crisp autumn eve on the Hogwarts express. Albus, James and Rosie where eating cauldron cakes and goofing off, when suddenly an owl soared by and tapped furiously on the glass. Albus opened the window and the owl burst in and stuck out its leg at Albus. Albus unstrapped the note attached to its leg. The owl stared into Albus' eyes and glared.

Then without another backwards glance it took off. "What does it say?" said Rosie who looked terrified. Albus read aloud "potter, if you ever want to see your parents again you will meet me outside the shrieking shack at midnight on Halloween." "Its signed lord Voldemort" said James.

"This doesn't add up" said Rosie. " well we will have to discuss this later because now’s the sorting." Albus said. “cross your fingers that we all get in the same house." said James. "We will!" they all said in unison.

I awoke the next morning to pandemonium.

''I CAN'T FIND MY DADA BOOK! WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?!''

As usual, Aimee wasn't prepared for the start of term. ''Just relax, Aimee, we'll find it.''

We searched the Dormitory, under beds, on beds, between blankets.. but no book.

''How could I lose it? I have DADA first this morning!''

''Just borrow one from the cabinets and order a new one, I dunno! It's obviously not here.''

Aimee was being grumpy now. ''I'll just write home and see if I forgot it..'' She grumbled.

When we finally got all our stuff, Lizzie, Aimee, and I went into the Great Hall for...

((In preparation for the July release of my newest fanfic, "In The Background," I present to you a short excerpt. The story strongly follows Ms. Rowling's original plot, but with a few changes of my own. As you can see by the title here, this will most likely be the largest fanfic you've ever seen.
I have seen a lot of stories here centered around the Trio's fifth year. This is one of the few (if any) stories that follows all seven books.
Most of the chapters in the story are loosely based off the original. However, this chapter is one of three I wholly invented.))

Butter "Beer" recipe from Harry Potter I made it myself. Its sorta like hot chocolate but without chocolate. You take 1 or if for two people 2 cups of milk put it on the stove keep it from boiling. You just want it hot but you dont want it to really boil. Ok add a cup of butterscotch schnapps. Then a splash of vanilla extract. A half of cup of sugar. Then a couple of spoon fulls of vanilla flavor coffee creamer. add a little yellow food coloring. And a tsp of butter. Then top with WHipped cream!!
Next day

We grew up in the world of Harry Potter.

We were at his side when he found the Sorcerer's Stone.
We followed him into the Chamber of Secrets.
We helped him free The Prisoner of Askaban.
We called his name from The Goblet of Fire.
We joined him in The Order of the Phoenix.
We helped him identify The Half Blood Prince.
We and him learned the ancient tale of The Deathly Hallows.

And now the end is near.

We have all been with Harry throughout the pages of the books and the scenes of the movies.
Harry Potter's followers from all over the globe ache from the closing of a decade filled with magic and...

"A Look Back at HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE" (2005)


With the fifth installment of the HARRY POTTER movie franchise ("HARRY POTTER and the Order of the Phoenix") about to be released, I thought this would be a great time to look back at its predecessor - "HARRY POTTER and the Goblet of Fire". When the latter was first released in November 2005, many had hailed it as the best of the four HARRY POTTER movies. I wish I could have agreed with that assessment of Goblet of Fire. I really wish I could. But . . . I can't. I'm sorry, but I consider "Goblet of Fire" the weakest of the four movies....

Which spell should I cast?
Which spell should I cast?
So I got boeard just a while ago and I saw a picture of Rebbecca so I got this oh so gienus idea it formulated quite like this; "Hay Zanny since you have nothing better to do with your life at the moment why dont you remake Friday HP style and share it with your friends on fanpop?" "Ok good idea Zanny I'll start right away!" Lol my lyrics are probably just as bad as the real version and they're a bit unorginized but I did my best. :P Ok here goes my dignaty and possibly some of your faith in humanity!

To begin, I suppose an explanation of this article's contents is in order. I have noticed, in seeing the films and then later re-reading the novels, that there are some character discrepancies. From humor to appearance, the characters in the films are, on occasion, very different from their source material. And it is in my humble opinion that the most important thing for a story to succeed is for there to be proper characterization. So, I hope I do not bore you too badly in this look at character discrepancies in the Harry Potter series. I will only look at one thing per character to make this...

itss an stupidity to compare this books because they are completely different stuff :

- HP=wizards
TW=vampires & werewolfs

- HP=fighting against voldemort harry the boy that survive little romances between the characcters
TW=bella&edward love choosing between jacob and edward fighting with vampz

- HP=- unlocks a whole new world for readers of ALL ages
TW= is a magic vampire/suspense/romance/young-adult novel series.

- HP=completely fantasty

Being sorted into Slytherin is one of the biggest things that will happen in Hogwarts. Not only are Slytherins described to be pure-blooded, prejudiced and evil, and no one in Hogwarts seems to like them.

First, how many dark lords have been sorted into Slytherin? Lord Voldemort, one of the most evil Dark lords ever, is the main one. He was cunning, sly and ambitious. But could he have been better? The Harry Potter book states that teachers liked him and his charm.

But Lord Voldemort isn’t the problem. It’s the fact that when people think of him, they know he was sorted into Slytherin. Many...

Ron and Hermione

Harry is in the forbidden forest, standing in front of Voldemort, about to give up his life. The book states "...and Harry thought inexplicably of Ginny, and her blazing look, and the feel of her lips on his--".

Now, a basic reading of this moment and people would think Harry's last thoughts were of kissing Ginny. Those who ship Harry with someone other than Ginny, will have his last thoughts be of that girl. For example, Harry and Hermione shippers, via the use of screen caps from the movies, will have Harry's last thoughts be of her.

However, what if there was more to this moment than meets...

Harry Potter beats Twilight. Of course. But I really don't like it when HP fans use opinion-ated "facts" when saying WHY Harry Potter is the better movie series. So, I, who am a major Potterhead, put together 7 true, solid, hard, and undeniable facts about certain aspects of the two movie series to prove why Harry Potter is the ultimate series.

202. -Neither will Professor Umbridge.
203. I do not have a Cyberman Patronus.

207. "Nessie is actually a cyborg created by the Zygons" is not an appropriate thing to say in Care of MagicalCreatures Class.
208. While it is appropriate to refer to Voldemort as "Master" while in his service, Voldemort and The Master are not one and the same.
209. I cannot substitute Prydonian robes for my Hogwarts uniform.

The Hogwarts express was moving steadily through the countryside, as Hermione walked slowly past the full compartments, waving and calling Hello to friends she hadn’t seen in what felt like forever, the smile on her face never faltering, Ever since she had received the letter with the red wax seal she had been ecstatic, with the risk of Voldemort gone, Parents had been more willing to bring their children to kings cross station this morning and say goodbye without having to worry about them being murdered while they slept, for this reason the magical train had added on another two carriages,...
