I’m looking to find a thick copy of the adventures of beetle bard. I want to hollow it out and make it a memory box type thing for my girlfriend. Does anyone know where I can find a copy that would be thick enough to accomplish that? Thanks!
In a quidditch match of the seeker catches the golden snitch it’s worth 150 points so what if the other team is up by 160 or more wouldn’t the other team win if the seeker caught the snitch because they would still have a higher score and the game would be over
Dobby did get stabbed straight in the heart, so cursed or not that was a fatal blow, but I always wondered whether Bellatrix had a curse of some sort on her knife. It’s not uncommon for a villain’s weapon of choice has a curse or some destructive property attached to it that can deal heavy damage to whoever is wounded by it, and wondered if Bellatrix’s knife could be one of those, too. Like, for causing extra pain or leaving scars that will always leave a mark.
Title. The Lord of The Rings re-released their audiobooks with Andy Serkis (Gollum) and it has made the experience 10x better. I think the Potter series audiobooks are already pretty dang good, but who (in your opinion) would make them the best?
PS. For the sake of keeping them fresh, you could choose differently per book.
Hi all, a family member is reading the series. I haven't reread in a little while, and something's come up where I'm trying not to spoil it. They are reading OotP, and I'm struggling to remember in which book Hermione is first successful in casting a corporeal patronus, or when its form (otter) is first mentioned. I remember it was later than the others and that's all.
Can someone with a better memory please help me out here?
Beware possible spoilers
I'm looking for the fanfic where Sirius Black and Harry Potter use veritaserum on Severus Snape. Hermione may or may not have been present. Once they finish questioning him, Sirius asks what information has he given a vow/oath to never reveal. As he's under veritaserum he's forced to try to answer which kills him (I'm pretty sure it killed him).
Good fics where veritaserum is actually used when it could be helpful are welcome as well. The fics tend to ignore the truth serum except to clear sirius name or when they go the rout of Occlumency blocking it so everyone knows Occlumency and therefore it's useless.
So i’m wanting to have a padlock which can be unlocked with a wand somehow (or the nearest thing to it)
Does anybody know where i can either: A) buy one
B) follow a guide on how to make one.
This is for a trunk which will contain christmas gifts
It was never made clear how Sirius got his wand back after Azkaban and I just imagine him going up to a desk as a dog as he's leaving Azkaban and the dude looks at him for a second and then just silently hands over the wand.
Jokes aside, maybe he hid it? Got a new one somehow? Thoughts?
which scene made you cry/sad?
Percy married a woman named Audrey Weasley, is there any information on her other than her name? Lol
They're in a puzzle I bought, but I don't recognize them!
So this is like my millionth time watching Harry Potter ( honestly don’t remember lost count) and I’m so surprised I never noticed this. I remember the scene and that it changes to the full moon but I legit just realised why. How many other people just realised this too?
Ps. Joined this sub purely so I could share this 😂😂
I remember in GOF Harry wanting to curse Snape into a thousand smimy pieces and he wished he knew how to do the Cruciatus Curse and use it on Snape and have him on the floor on his back twitching and writhing, after Hermione's jinxed teeth and Goyle's boiled face.
And if so, when and why?
Hi to all!
My GF loves HP, so I decided to prepare some food or drinks from HP world. Do you have some recipes for this? I'm quite sure that exists a lot of reels on insta about it, but in my feed obviously I don't have anything. Do you have some links or suggestions? Thanks!
I’m sitting here yelling during my reread because Harry is literally putting every piece to the puzzle of the Deathly Hallows together and Hermione is just shutting down his ideas😂like in the span of a few minutes Harry discovers he owns 2 of the Hallows AND is descended from the Peveralls AND that Voldemort is after the Elder Wand. Such a great but frustrating moment.
Floo powder seems like a pretty good way to transport yourself. Let's say you are a Hogwarts student and you want to go to Hogsmeade: floo powder. Or your parents need to visit. Or you wanna visit home.
Floo powder is lit.
HP and the sorcerer's stone, page 119:
" "Brown, Lavender" became the first new Gryffindor, and the table on the far left exploded with cheers; Harry could see Ron's twin brothers cat-calling. "
I don't believe the term for cat calling today is actually as the same as in the past, so please explain
Scrolled through TV yesterday and DH pt1 was on its last minutes. From the Malfoy mansion to the beach cabin, I laughed and snickered everytime Dobby showed up on screen. I also cried when Bellatrix managed to took his life 🥲
IMO The character is greatly written and animated in The movies. Anyone Else has a character that makes you feel similar strong feelings?
What do you guys think about Percy Jackson? Do you think he is better? Worse? Have you read any of the books? Have you seen any of the movies? Who would win In a fight?
Besides the Imperius Curse, what were those spells?
In the Order of the Phoenix, Fudge is deperate to discredit Harry as a rambling, attention seeking boy.
But he could have gone with a more sinister tactic.
Many people were suspicious of Harry surviving and they thought that Harry himself was an even greater Dark wizard who defeating Voldemort with his ppwerful magic.
Fudge could have stirred these rumors by accusing Harry of being involved in Quirrel's death and killing Cedric to win the Tournament.
