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 更多 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,...

I decided to write this 文章 because I have seen many 评论 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 写作 this is the question: ¿Have 你 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 阅读 评论 like those.

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

Harry Potter married Ginny Weasley. They had three children, James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily Luna. He became head of the Auror's Department under Kingsley Shacklebolt.

Ginny Weasley played quidditch for the Holyhead Harpies. After deciding to raise a family, she retired and became Senior Quidditch correspondent at the Daily Prophet.

Hermione Granger married to Ron Weasely and had two children, Rose and Hugo. Hermione went back to Hogwarts and sat her NEWTS before working for Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures and helping house elves. She then moved to the Department...

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,...

Harry Potter and the Philosopher/Sorcerer's Stone
For Jessica, who loves stories, for Anne, who loved them too, and for Di, who heard this one first.
Explanation: Jessica is JK Rowling’s twelve-year-old daughter. Anne was Jo’s mother, who, unfortunately, died of Multiple Sclerosis on December 30th, 1990. Dianne, 或者 “Di," is Jo’s younger sister who she read Philosopher/Sorcerer’s Stone before Jo sent it off to be reviewed.

I'm basing this review mostly on J.K. Rowling's official words and a little on the books's content. I write this regarding how the 问题 of the educating style is often pondered and some even think "all pure-bloods were 首页 schooled".

The purity of one's blood is not relevant to how a child is schooled before Hogwarts. With the exception of families like Malfoys 或者 Blacks who would probably die before sending their kids amongst muggles to learn anything. But whatever few pure-blood families there were left - as far as I see - most of them are not known to be like those two, but have a respectable...

This 文章 is reviewing his devotion as a Death Eater, his possible part in the Longbottom torture, his childhood, his father's 爱情 for him - and some other things - always basing on what we can read from the Goblet of 火, 消防 book. Weighting on my own interpretation, of course.

I know the vast majority of people seem to have taken a liking of the first impression the book gives on the father-son relationship, especially 由 Junior's own words, so I respect that view - however those are only his beliefs and not necessarely the truth and I personally like to dig deeper into the possibilities....

"Who wants to be in Slytherin? I think I'd leave, wouldn't you?" - James Potter (DH)
Imagine being in Hufflepuff, I think I'd leave, wouldn't you?" - Draco Malfoy (PS)
Similar yet different!
Quite ironic isn't it? Father of the hero and arch nemisis of the hero have the same line. I don't think it's a coincidence that both James and Draco quote a similar line about a house they were prejudiced against. Both boys were brought up as the only sons in rich pureblood families. Both were undoubtedly spoilt. Both were definitely raised with a house prejudice. Both were definitely arrogant, attention-seeking...

 MARNIE!
MARNIE!
Hi guys, I'm a big 粉丝 of Harry Potter and I remember watching Halloweentown. So, I'm going to be 写作 the similarities between Hermione and another young witch, Marnie Piper.

Marnie Piper

I first saw Halloweentown back in 2001 before Harry Potter hit the cinema theatres! Okay, I was very happy that Marnie is her own character and she is not the typical Mary Sue character.

Hermione Granger

Okay, I watched all of the Harry Potter series, and I have that Hermione is actually very much like Marnie, in terms of personality except that she 更多 of a book-worm. To whom I look up to, not to forget that their names rhyme!
If Harry Potter and Halloweentown were to be set in the same universe, it would be great to make a film about the characters together!

Hermione 或者 Marnie?

Who do 你 like? If 你 have anymore similarities between these 2 heroines, let me know!
 HERMIONE!!

I will miss Richard Griffiths very greatly. He was a fantastic actor and a great loss. He did an awesome job bringing Vernon Dursley to life the way he did.

Sometimes his true warmth peeked through, as in that one neat scene in the film Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone where he is talking about Sundays being a ‘fine day’ and asks why that is; Harry Melling’s Dudley shrugs his shoulders. Daniel’s Harry asks him if the reason was because there was no post on Sundays, and Richard momentarily dropped the Vernon persona and beamed warmly at him, replying with “Right 你 are, Harry”...

1. Harry James Potter:

He taught me that i can withstand anything with the power of love. When most of the wizarding world thought he was a joke (because he believed Voldemort was back) He did not back down. He 说 he believed Voldemort was alive and stuck to it. He did not care who laughed at him, who believed him and who did not because he knew Hermione and Ron were standing 由 him, too. He taught me sheer willpower.
He taught me to take responsibility. It is not always about what i want 或者 need. It about what is right. What is right for the ones i care about. He taught me to put others first,...

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 来源 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 你 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...

I was quiet angry with mom for making me transfer to Hogwarts after three years of getting homeschooled at 首页 in America. Well, I wasn't as angry at her for making me attend Hogwarts. After all, it was the best wizarding school in the world. I would've had no problem with the school 或者 my mom had Hogwarts been located in Britan. I had to leave all my 老友记 and 移动 across the Atlantic just to go to school.

But my mom had already made up her mind. She was always stubborn, but now that Surius Black still hasn't been caught, she seemed 更多 determined to send me to Hogwarts. My mom was convinced...

1. Some 更多 minor characters, such as Dobby, were only included in the films where their roles were pivotal. Others such as Peeves were excluded entirely. The development of minor relationships such as Tonks/Lupin and Bill/Fleur was cut.

2. The locations for Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione's first kisses were both altered in the films. Some smaller scenes between the couples were also changed 或者 added in. Scenes such as Harry and Hermione dancing in Deathly Hallows were added to please their 粉丝 and to create 更多 of an impression of a 爱情 triangle.

3. Some characters' appearances didn't fully...

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