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.
Open at the Close: How Sorcerer's Stone anticipated Deathly Hallows by The MuggleNet Quibbler
Rated: All Ages [Reviews - 6]
Summary: By Conrad - My essay is about Sorcerer's Stone as it relates to Deathly Hallows, and how some of the elements of the first book were incorporated into the last. Now that all of the books and movies are finished, it is possible and very interesting to look back at how what happened in SS foreshadowed or made possible what happened in DH. My essay goes through nine of the major connections between these two books: Harry as a Horcrux, the character arc of Severus Snape, Harry and Ginny's relationship, Ron and Hermione's relationship, Gringott's Bank, the Invisibility Cloak, Harry's first Snitch, the Deluminator, and the "are you a witch/wizard or what?" quote connection. Through this essay, I hope the reader will come to a new appreciation of how amazingly well thought-out the Harry Potter series truly is.

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.

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.
