It’s an extremely late post of this week’s reading! (Sorry, turns out birthdays are very distracting!)
In The Boggart in the Wardrobe, Malfoy turns out to be the drama school kid with the pushy parents who just wants to put on a show which dear old Uncle Snape is all too happy to indulge. But don’t go skinning your shrivelfigs, Professor Lupin’s back to save the day.
One of my favourite mythical creatures is introduced (Hurrah for the inclusion of English folklore, even if they’re nothing like the actual boggart legends...) and what better way than Professor Snape in drag? Really though, did no one think about the dangers of introducing a phobia-replicator to deeply tormented children?
The Flight of the Fat Lady continues the amazing DADA lessons, while the other lessons are sadly less appealing. Hagrid has managed to find a creature that sounds more boring than regular worms. Pets are being attacked all over the place, (right in the feels Jo!) and Harry still can’t go to Hogsmede, but hanging out with Lupin brings a smile to his face. Lupin obviously hasn’t met Mad Eye Moody (spoilers) as he’ll happily drink a potion from Snape.
It turns out a talking painting is better protection than walls, gates, dementors and charms, but none of that matters because he attacked the Fat Lady! He’s been in the castle! SIRIUS BLACK!
We've talked a lot about where the curse of unicorn blood comes from, but just what exactly is the curse?! That's what this Quibble seeks to find out!
I'm back with more of my thoughts and questions that I had while re-reading the Harry Potter books. This time from Chapters 1 & 2 of Chamber of Secrets.
I pair up characters with magical creatures that are like them.
In which I try to explain my views on prejudice in the Wizarding world, and connect it to certain areas of the muggle world as well. The category is Fantastic Beats and Where to...
This is an essay I wrote for school comparing and contrasting the lives of Harry and Voldemort. It starts with their childhoods and continues until the end of the books.
