I love the Harry Potter series so much, they are my childhood, my obsession! I think it has many valuble life lessons, and i try to learn from them :) i have a disply cabinet of replicas and things, i started collecting things when i was about 8. My role models are JK Rowling, Ginny, Molly, and Hermione
Summary: By Ellie: Lily Evans is painted as perfect, and this is unfair. Unable to see the wood for the trees, fans remember her in all her glory, unmarred by her human flaws. This essay addresses why this is horribly unfair, and remembers her as she probably was, imperfections and all.
This is a good point to make, i would also perhaps, comapre her death to dumbeldores, his faults were not forgotten, but brought up after his death. However, Lily Evans, in my opinion did love her son, family, and friends. We forget her kindness towards Snape, and the fish she gave Slughorn. She married James because she saw the good in people, not because she had a 'cursed' life. If we are going to point out her faults, then we should have evidence for them, how do you know she loathed James and thought Harry was needy? If she did act bitchily with her friends, lied, or ignored Harry, eveyone is human, and everyone does have faults, but i feel that some of your points are unfair.
Summary: Hedwig meant more in th books than just Harry's companion, so for my first Essay I chose to write you a piece on what she did mean and how good a character I truly beleive she was. I hope you enjoy!
I like the sense of apreciation you have for Hedwig, it is true he's the one character who stays with Harry from the start of his safer life, right to the end, when hus safety is taken away. For Harry i imagine he symbolised the happiest years of his life. The only improvement is you could have made is to add quotes :)
Summary: This quibble attempts to look at the sorting process through the Weasley family. It seems entirely possible after all the new information Pottermore has given us about the four houses, that some characters of this family could have actually been in other houses, yet JK Rowling keeps them in Gryffindor. The quibble looks at what houses each Weasley could have been in and then asks the question why they were kept in Gryffindor and posits the theory that maybe JK Rowling would have put them elsewhere, but kept them in Gryffindor to maintain the plot. It also opens up several other questions that allow plenty of room to theorize about the sorting process, especially in relation to families who get sorted together like the Weasleys.
Amazing quibble! I totally agree with you in all your points, very thought provoking and origional. I was considering also, being in ravenclaw involves being unique, but to be unique, one must be brave, the quintisential quality of a gryffindor :) brilliant article
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.
