Sorry About this I actually published the whole thing so far previously but removed it because it was too long so I will be putting up 3 chapters at a time from now on.

This is only temporary and the beginnings of a MASSIVE fan fic. So can you just tell me if you like it? That would be great! :)

DISCLAIMER - I don't own any of the Harry Potter characters. I do own Alex, though.

Note - It’s based on a sort of mixture between the book and the movie, but the characters’ appearances and personalities are more like the adaptions in the movie.

Prologue

The rain beat down into the grey looking graveyard, soaking the shoulders of my black jacket. A temporary platform was rigged in front of the saturated crowd, where a little man with a chequered bow-tie and prominent ears read out his respects to the recently deceased Colonel Fubster. He had been droning on for a while now, and I could tell everyone was eager for him to finish.

We do read some about the second one from the last two books, but it doesn't dive that deep into it's big picture, as it sticks to the wizarding society's point of view and mostly to the characters' who had some special role in it. (The main heroes, the main villains, some muggle-borns...)

So, what were those wars really like, from the muggle society's point of view, but also generally from the civilians point of view, be you a muggle or a magical person?

Because, how widely effective, visual or distructive could it possibly have become in the big picture?
The United KIngdom, even just London alone,is a LARGE area to impact.

While there were no war airplanes, tanks, bombs or massive battle field shoot-bomb-and-bloody-murder scenarios going on unlike there would be in muggle wars. (Because there isn't enough magical people to form battle fields for fighting like that and they mostly use wands, and their goverment and society is generallty depicted as stuck in the past centuries in many things.)

It was a cold day.

Freezing in fact.

Just one of the many reasons he hated the world of the muggles. Not that the Wizzarding World was any warmer. But any excuse would do Rodolphus just fine. He’d give anything really to get his wand back. After that dreadful Potter boy came in and killed Voldemort, his followers were stripped (mostly) of their magic and tossed to the muggles they so hated.

He was approaching his new home…a shitty thing it was. Of course to most beholders it was a rather upper-class style house—fairly large and with a neatly tended yard. But for Rodolphus anything built by muggle hands was trashy.

He pulled the door open, a flurry of snow making its way into the house. At least it was warm. He slammed the door shut, with much more force than necessary.

His wife was sitting cross-legged, on the floor, by the fire…so nearby the fire Rodolphus wondered how she hadn’t burned herself. She looked rather cozy to him with her hair was tied up in a messy ponytail—clad in a much too oversized mint green sweatshirt and an equally as large pair of black sweatpants.

Three years ago, I had posted an abbreviated review of the fourth HARRY POTTER film, "HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE". This is an expanded version of that review:


"HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE" (2005) Review

Despite the release of the first two movies in the film franchise, I did not become a fan of the "HARRY POTTER" series until I saw the 2004 movie, "HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN". I became so enamored of this third film that I regarded the release of its successor, "HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE", with great anticipation.

Released during the fall of 2005 and based upon J.K. Rowling's 2000 novel, "HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE" follows boy wizard Harry Potter's fourth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. This year proves to be a special one for Harry when he unexpectedly finds himself competing in the wizard world's Tri-Wizard Tournament, a magical competition for young wizards from three different schools, who are 17 years old or older. Not only does the 14 year-old Harry have to deal with the contempt from Hogswarts students who...

I'm reviewing the matter in general, but let's start with the darkest year of Hogwarts' recent history.

In 1997-1998, the Death Eaters made attending Hogwarts mandatory to magical children between ages 11-18. Regardless of them coming of age at 17. This is evident from Neville Longbottom and many other 17-year olds attending their last year in the school that normally wouldn't be required in order to graduate. Surely no one in their right mind would attend the school that year if given a choice simply not to.
But was it mandatory to every single magical child of that age span, no matter what their magical study history? None of the books' characters' cases reveal that as they were currently registered as a Hogwarts students anyway. I haven't found any official or canon statement about that detail, so I believe it was left up to fan visions.

I think it would make most sense that they made it mandatory only to those who were registered as students at the time of the take-over, and for those aged 11 who were to start, and possibly for recent drop-outs. Because it would be virtually impossible to succesfully and safely run a school with thousands...

Summary: A young boy learns that even the biggest horror fan can't handle everything, in a world where monsters and ghosts really exist. Another part in a series about my werewolf character.
Genre: General/Horror
Rating: Teens
Characters: Only my original characters.
Length: Prologue + 5 chapters.
This story is just one part in a series I'm writing about these characters. All the current stories in this series are on my Fanfiction.Net and DeviantArt accounts.
Author: WolfAngel'JR at FanFiction.Net (BenDaImmortal here.)

A/N Happy Halloween time! This story goes through most of the full moon / Halloween week. I'm not entirely sure what I want from this - but in the least this will be a little story about Halloween time in the universe of the Harry Potter books, through the eyes of a child - a child who also happens to be a werewolf.

IMPORTANT: The werewolf vision in these stories is mostly mine and not official/from the books. Mostly. So, please don't copy from it unless you can verify that the detail is Rowling's. Thank you. A/N

"MUM, you bought the 'No pulp' kind again..." I grumble, grimacing with my first sip of orange juice.

"Sorry, dear. I always forget which kind you like," she apologizes.

"It's 'SOME pulp'," I remind her for what must be the millionth time.

She scribbles something on the grocery list tacked to the inside of the silverware cupboard door.

"Run out and get the mail?" She asks.

I run my thumb up the stack of napkins that sits on the table. "Do I have to?"

She turns around and gives me a look that usually means No-dear-you-don't-have-to-but-if-you-don't-I'm-going-to-buy-more-no-pulp-orange-juice.

I groan and stumble out the door, still in my pale-blue nightgown. It's not yet light, but mum loves it when we get up early to "Get a fresh start on the day," so I'm stuck getting up at this ungodly hour of the morning, although my little sister Amelia gets off easy, only having to be awake by 7:00. By my estimate, it's about 6:30 right now.

Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson’s portrayal of J. K. Rowling’s wizarding trio Harry, Ron and Hermione has impressed film buffs who have voted it the best book to film adaptation of all time.

The poll – run by Samsung Electronics – was set up to coincide with the release of David Fincher’s screen adaptation of Gone Girl starring Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck.

A third of film buffs voted the Harry Potter series - starring Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith and Warwick Davis - as the best adaptation.

Award winning The Shawshank Redemption starring Morgan Freeman and Tim Robbins followed closely in second, with The Lord of the Rings trilogy taking third place.

Other favourites to make the list were romantic classic Gone With the Wind starring Vivien Leigh and Clarke Gable as Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler, as well as Silence of the Lambs and Bridget Jones’s Diary.

Robert Pattinson may have earned himself an army of adoring female fans in vampire fantasy, Twilight but the film adaptation failed to match up to the novel’s success.

Menahem Asher Silva Vargas might need to find the Room of Requirement . The Mexico City man probably could use some extra space these days, as he’s acquired no fewer than 3,097 pieces of Harry Potter memorabilia.
Instead, Vargas will have to settle for a definitively Muggle Guinness World Record. His collection—which includes everything from toy figurines to replica Quidditch brooms—obliterated the previous record holder, an 807-item assortment, like a Reductor Curse from Dumbledore’s wand itself. [The Guardian ]
Guys like Vargas made the Harry Potter franchise the economic juggernaut it has become. For a more comprehensive look at what makes these type of enterprises explode, pick up How Star Wars Conquered the Universe: The Past, Present and Future of a Multibillion Dollar Franchise, a new book by Chris Taylor out today. Star Wars fans may currently be enjoying a renaissance, but Taylor goes to great lengths to remind readers that the franchise’s success wasn’t always a given. [USA Today ]

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 the eye? Ginny's full name is Ginevra, which is an anagram for vinegar. Thus we have vinegar touching Harry's lips.

John 19:29-30
New International Version (NIV)

29 A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. 30 When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

I found an interesting short essay from HP Lexicon and it made me think about it even deeper than it goes.

First off; please don't get me wrong.
I love Dumbledore's character, I love Lockhart's character, I love Hogwarts, and I love, love, love the books and the HP universe. I'm just wondering and interested in what, if anything, is behind all this I'm about to discuss.
That if Rowling possibly actually planned this somehow and for some reason many parents in that universe are willing to over-look huge problems and risk their children's lives because of someone's status and previous reputation...OR if this is just unfortunate illogicness because of her coming up with awesome general storylines and interesting characters and not thinking some of them enough throroughly.

So, Hogwarts is supposed to be concidered "the finest wizarding schol" in the world I guess as there's only one in each country. And Dumbledore is supposedly concidered "the best Headmaster Hogwarts has ever seen".

I recently found a strange contradiction in the concept of wizarding money.I'd like to know if my idea is true or if there is a counter-argument against it.

In pg.65 of HP and the Chamber of Secrets,we learn that Muggle money can be exchanged into wizarding money.

We also know that potentially valuable(in a Muggle point of view) objects such as chairs can be Conjured by magic(eg:Dumbledore does this in the courtroom in HP and The Order of the Phoenix).

So any wizard who knows basic Transfiguration can Conjure objects such as chairs,sell them to Muggles to obtain Muggle money and then exchange this money into Galleons,thus obtaining an infinite amount of wealth.

Doesn't this contradict the whole point of wizarding money?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello there. As many of Harry Potter fans surely know, there are many characters who have received a lot of illogical hate from some people, often poorly explained, since in general, the haters are unable to express their own opinion and lack fantasy, so the arguments are basically the same, especially for females. Let’s talk about Ginny for example, obviously my rant below concerns this character in particular.
Of course, when a part of fandom (of course, I’m not generalizing, that’s why I said SOME and A PART delibarately) starts to bash feminine characters (more generally – mainstream behaves the same way towards famous or not so famous women, doesn’t matter which one), one of the most “necessary” thing to do for them is to insult their looks, then attack their sexuality, and finally – stick a label, trope or stereotype. Now I’ll try my best to deconstruct these tendencies and show that such behavior is a direct result of double standards and sheer hypocrisy sadly common in our society. So, here we go.

I've noticed that (here, anyway) a lot of fans seem to have severe opinions of Snape. Either they hate him, or they love him and he's the best character ever. I don't see many who have a mixed opinion of him, so I'm going to try to explain mine.

I think that, while Snape was extremely brave spying on Voldemort and the Death Eaters for many years - and I can't imagine how hard that would have been - there are also many bad points about him.

+ I do pity him his childhood. Parental breakup and them fighting all the time, being poor, being picked on and isolated. Poor him. Unlike others though, I don't accept this as any excuse. One of the main messages of the series is that choices make someone who they are.
+Again, I pity him on how he was bullied as a teenager.
- He called Lily a mudblood. Even using that word is horrendous.
- He became a Death Eater. He chose to become a Death Eater. Although we don't see any of those years or hear any description of them, we can imagine the sort of crimes he committed during those years.

When zanhar gets bored, zanhar makes fanfictions. And when zanhar can't decide who she wants to obsess over more (Gina or Bella) zanhar makes crossover fics.

Another world is her only choice. That’s what she had decided.
That would be here only means of escape now.
The thought had been dancing in Regina’s mind for a few weeks now, just itching to be acted upon. And finally Regina had, had enough. Between all attempts to revive Henry’s memories failing (resulting in a return to New York for a happy mother and son) and Zelena’s murder of Robin Hood. The witch had been sure to make the deed as excruciating as she could in ripping the thief’s heart out and crushing it, leaving him to die in Regina’s arms just as her mother and Daniel had. The woman finally snapped, she had to get away from this hell, from the people who still shot her dirty looks and accusing glances despite all the effort (and if she must say so herself) success she put into changing herself for the better. The mayor was completely and utterly fed up with the town she’d wasted a chunk of her life making. With Henry and Robin both lost to her, it was time to leave it...

The letter we have all been waiting for
Hogwarts was, until very recently, the 100-percent fictional boarding school in J.K. Rowling’s popular “Harry Potter” books. But thanks to an untold horde of would-be wizards, Hogwarts is now — if not exactly “real” — then something approximating it.
Hogwarts Is Here is the newly launched, fantastically elaborate brainchild of 24-year-old Web developer Keith Cardin, and it’s essentially a volunteer-run MOOC (massive open online course) for Muggles who wish Potions and History of Magic were actual academic pursuits.
When you enroll and receive your electronic owl — “Due to the increasing use of technology of Muggle-born students, Hogwarts is introducing a new digital interface,” it explains — you’re instructed to sign up for seven nine-week courses. There are actual syllabi. And textbooks. And graded assignments. My first essay for Defense Against the Dark Arts, in which more than 16,000 students are currently enrolled, requested a two- to five-paragraph essay on “why defensive magic is important.” I can’t even view the second lesson, “Simple Standard Spells,” because I haven’t submitted the first essay yet.

Obviously it's not in billions. And magic is rare.

So, how rare might it be?
First I'll address some research arguments I found on link and gave some though to.

They seemed to conclude that there'd be approximately 300.000 to 1.000.000 magical people on the entire planet.
Basing on, for example:

”The room for 100.000 at the World Cup.”
Speculated to give some idea of the total number of magical people in the world...I guess because it's the World Cup and witches and wizards don't have televisions...This stadion room was believed to be for approx. 1/3 or 1/10 of the total world population of magical people.

I don't believe so.
Out of the billions of muggles only a tiny minority can attend a World Cup because a stadion can be only so big. Even with magic because no one would want to sit kilometers awy from the game feald which is already in itself quite large. So I think it's entirely possible that only a tiny minority of the world's wizarding population...

Much of Bellatrix's sixth year upon hearing this news was spent trying to decide if she was going to keep the baby or not. With Tom she decided to go for it. What harm could one kid possibly do?

She soon found out that a kid could do very much damage--and that was without it even seeing the light of day yet.

An otherwise hyper Bellatrix found herself growing more tired and less energetic as the days wore on. She had considered cutting class on multiple occasions, but decided against it as she wouldn't let some mudblood surpass her.

Though it was always a struggle when she first awoke. Every morning she was greeted with a much unwelcomed wave of nausea. And was eventually forced to provide some excuse as to why she always got up so early, as well as where she went when she did.She had claimed to be in the library working on some project or another--and Tom had no problem vouching for her.

But Bellatrix's biggest dread was yet to come. Her body hadn't really started to show any obvious physical signs of her pregnancy yet--regardless the witch knew she had fess up before her body did that for her. She hadn't even the nerve to tell...

There was a time when he loved her. A time when he actually could love, and she'd get him to do so again.

His name was Tom, she had met him during her first year at Hogwarts. He was in her herbology class, and was really the only thing that made actually showing up to the class worth while. At that point it was all too simple; two eleven year old children playing petty pranks in between classes and exchanging silly notes in the middle of class, mostly consisting of ridiculous and poorly drawn pictures of her dear cousin Sirius. The two would often sit before a fire in the common room and simply talk about who they hated and who was 'cool' until lights out. Not a trouble not a worry. What did children of their age have to fear anyways? Their blood was pure. They were pure. They were in turn safe. No one dared to mess with them.

It was in year three that things got more complex, more confusing. It was in year three that Bellatrix had realized she desired something much more from Tom than just his friendship. But after dropping countless hints, she realized just how oblivious he was. Or maybe it was the fact that he was more interested in Alice...

Shouldn’t have turned around
(From the view of Draco)
Have you ever seen something so beautiful as light? Whatever it is that you saw it would never be as beautiful as the light I have just witnessed as it stands this light which holds my heart together in one piece ceases to know I existed. Even though we walked down the same corridors to such things as laborious lessons that I cannot wish to attend, she floats on cloud nine as she embraces her muggle-born ways that I Draco Malfoy mock her with my own undying love to her... the more she floats the more I fall and the only way that I can hold onto her and actually speak to her is through spite and horrible crude words, pretending to be lost in my pure blood mania to impress my family, I would much rather lose everything to have her for my own. My father saw that something was bothering me but he thought, being the selfish man that he is, that it was that I was scared and worried about my new state in society, scared about being a deatheater. He will never know.... not that he helped of course that just got me more worried. I have to kill Albus Dumbledore; Hermione would never love me then. My father decided to then...

As I sit on the rough steps in this cold winters day waiting for my father to tell me to come inside. I know he will eventually but I want to stay alone, facing him time and time again is torture! Around me is the black mansion which is where I live in and surrounding it is snow and naked branches as the leaves has fallen out in comparison to its season. With a flick of my cold black wand a heart appears in the snow, I don’t care about the rules of magic anymore. Then the thought of her face appears in my head and affection rises in my chest, my eyes are feeling hot and my face is turning red. I feel a tear run down my face but it’s not cooling my face down in any way. With another flick of my wand the heart turns black and a crack through the middle breaks it apart and I’m running.
