Deathly Hallows Movie

The Deathly Hallows movie is confirmed to be split into two parts. The first part will come out in November 2010 and the second part will come out in May 2011. This is great news to Harry Potter fans because we know that there will be very few cuts from the book. The only downside is the two year wait between HBP and DH.

So, the book and the movie came out and there isn't really anymore news as you can see by the lack of posts. The Midnight Release was awesome!!!! Next is the HBP movie! Woo hoo!

Myrtle, if you are still checking up on the site, I haven't forgotten to get you your birthday present! I'll get it to you once I can get my dad to help me with the technical stuff.

Hermione's Boggart

Yet another theory...

I know Hermione cares about her school work, but in every book, she's been willing to not only face expulsion, but to also face death to help her friends Harry and Ron. Why, then, would her greatest fear be failing everything when she believed that a crazy mass murderer was no the loose trying to kill one of her best friends? Keep in mind that earlier that year, Ron had woken up with Sirius Black standing over him with a knife and Harry had been risking his neak by sneeking out to Hogsmead. It's much more likely that she say one, or both, of them dead and lied about it later.

Petunia's Secret

What is our favorite (ya, right) mother hiding from us? Interesting.... Very interesting...


'From the Arabic words ghul (meaning 'male') and ghula (meaning 'female'). In Islamic legend, a ghoul is a demon who feeds on the flesh of humans, in particular corpses stolen from graves, travellers, and children.

'Ghouls are thought to travel at night around graveyards, deserts, and lonely, deserted spots. Sometimes they are said to be dead humans who rest in secret graves and then awake to feast on human flech, living and dead. In Islamic tradition, there are many kinds of ghouls, both male and female, but perhaps the most terrible is the female variety who has the power to transform into a real woman that can entrap and feast on an unsuspecting admirer.'

-The Element Encyclopedia of the Psychic World

Evil Eye

'The ancient and greatly feared belief that certain people can inflict bad luck, misfortune, or death simply with a glance or intence stare. Negative energy is transmitted to another person with a glance or lingering look from a malevolent person.

'The superstition was known as far back as 3000 BC, appearing in the cuneiform texts of the Sumerians and Assyrians. There is also evidence that the Babylonians and ancient Greeks believed in it. Women in ancient Egypt would paint their eyes and lips with makeup to keep the evil eye out. Most tribal cultures are aware of it and it is mentioned in both the Bible and the Koran. Even today in Mexico and Central America, superstitions about the evil eye still exist.

'The evil eye is said to most likely strike when an individual is at the height of his or her happiness and success and for some unknown reason children and cows seem to be special targets of the evil eye. Witches, sorcerers, magicians, medicine men, and witch doctors are said to cast the evil eye. Native America shamans often combine the menacing look with pointing a stick, finger, or wand. A person may also be cursed with the evil eye at birth and not know it. Pope Leo XIII was said to possess the evil eye. Because of this, those who believe in the evil eye must constantly be on their guard as a malevolent stare could come from anyone, even a stranger in the street.

'If a person is hit by the evil eye various superstitions offer protection against disister striking. If a witch or sorcerer is not available to offer a counter-spell, the fig hand -- a clenched fist with the thumb stuck through the middle and fourth fingers -- and a curved horn are said to offer protection. Other protective amulets include bells, brass, red ribbons, blue beads, garlic, horseshoes, or hanging charms in windows to confuse a witch's gaze. Denying success and good fortune could also deflect it, and admired infants would be smeared with dirt before being taken out. Touching wood was also thought to offer protection against the curse of the evil eye.'

-The Element Encyclopedia of the Psychic World

Devil's Mark

'A name given by demonologists and medieval witch-hunters to a scar, blemish, or mark on the skin said to be imprinted by the devil as a seal of his possession of the person.

'The finding of such marks became an important buisness of the expert pricking that took place at many witch persecutions. Devil's marks were said to be insensitive to pain and pricking pins into such areas was supposed to draw no blood.'

-The Element Encyclopedia of the Psychic World


'The name given to a spirit companion, usually in animal form, who aids ar attends the need of witches. Familiars are also said to be given to witches by the Devil as their companions and helpers. The word is derived from the Latin familiaris, meaning 'belonging to a household.'

'A familiar is often thought to have magical power and to offer protection from danger to their master or mistress. The most common familiars are cats, followed by dogs, birds, hares, smakes, and frogs or toads. At the hieght of the seventeenth-century witch paranoia, a lone woman owning a black cat was enough ground to convict her of witchcraft.'

"The Hallows across most legends are seen to represent the royal regalia carried by the King, or the objects sought by someone such as a 'Grail Quester' in both ancient and modern stories.

"The sacred vessels, or 'Hallows of Ireland' were believed to have been brought by the 'Tuatha de Danaan' to Ireland and kept in the 'Crane Bag', visible at high tide only. Four people were responsible for guarding the contents, known as 'Guardians of the Hallows' : 'Manannan', 'Lugh', 'Cumhal', 'Fionn'...

"...These have since been further developed to the four symbols of magical elements, to also be seen on Tarot packs as the four suits:
1. The Sword;

2. The Spear; [This can also be the Wand]
3. The Cup;
4. The Pentacle..."
(Quotation from Here)

We know Voldie wants an artifact from each of the 4 founders turn into horcruxes. We also know that the title of the next HP book is Deathly Hallows. (hAllows, not hOllows). We can reasonable deduce, then, that the "Deathly" part refers to 2 parts: the part where you have to kill someone to make a horcrux, and the part where they are the key to killing Voldie once and for all. The important part is the "Hallows" part.

First of, let me point out the obvious. 4 Hallows of Arthurian legend, 4 Founders of Hogwarts. Now that that's clear, let me point out some of the other "coincidences."

1. Gryffindor's Sword. While it may not be a horcrux, it eliminates the possibility of Ravenclaw's artifact being a sword. This is helpful later on when we try to speculate what her artifact is and where it may be.

2. Hufflepuff's Cup. Voldie (then Tom Riddle) encounters this as well as Slytherin's locket at Heptziba Smith's house. We then go on to learn that Miss Smith was poisoned "accidentally" and the cup and the locket was never seen again. The only people who new she had those artifacts where her family and, guess who?, Tom Riddle. Jo Rowling says herself that there was an almost "hungry" look in his eyes when he saw the artifacts, and we know he had already killed his family. Why wouldn't he do it?

3. Slytherin's Locket. While it may not be an exact match, it is a reasonable assumption that the locket is the pentacle. The pentacle is the five pointed star, but it is usually pictured as a symbol engraved into wood or gold. What else is gold (and round as most pentacles are)? A locket! As I said above, Voldie acquired the locket from Miss Smith. We know this for a fact. while the cup may still just be a very good guess, we have seen the locket, or, at least, evidence that Voldie had hidden it at some point. Dumbledoor found the cave where it was hidden and took Harry with him. The locket they acquired may not have been the true locket, but the note within showed that the locket was there at some point, and that Voldie had put it there. R.A.B. addressed the note to Voldie, saying that he had the locket and was trying to destroy it. What other proof is needed?

4. Ravenclaw's Wand? This is where we get in to the "thickets of wildest guess work" ...using the path of rational deductions that is. We already know of the sword, the cup, and the pentacle, so that leaves only one other Hallow: the wand. I suppose Ravenclaw could have left behind a spear, but we know that the one tool every witch and wizard has is a ward. Also, the other three correspond to the characteristics valued by the Founders. Sword: Bravery (like a knight of the round table); Cup: abundance or friendship; and Pentacle: Power (used in many wiccan rituals). Therefore, Ravenclaw's own artifact should correspond to her house as well. The wand may not be an exact match, but that's why this is just a guess. The wand could symbolize magical intellegence, needing to know what to do in order for it to be of any use.

Now, we probably agree that Ravenclaw's artifact is a wand. But I mentioned before that I was not only going to speculate what her artifact is, but also where it is. Now, where have I seen a wand that obviously has some special background or meaning to it. Oh, ya! Ollivander's! When Harry first sees Ollivander's shop, the only thing in the window is a single wand on a cusion. Now why would he put that specific wand on a pillo, by itself, in the window for everyone to see? If he wanted a window display, he should have put multiple wand of different woods, cores, and length in a display of some sort of magic act or duel. Instead, he puts a solitary wand on a cusion as if it had some special meaning. Which is does. "I remember every wand I ever sold..." If Mr. Ollivander remembers every wand he ever sold, I'm willing to bet that so does his relatives (who were making wands in the 1st century, before Hogwarts was founded). If one of them sold Ravenclaw her wand, they would probably remember that! And to receve that wand after the owner had passed on would mean a great deal to them.

One small problem... Ollivander dissapeared and the windows were borded up. Looks like Harry still has to go horcrux hunting...

Just a Bit of Humor...

As though an invisible hand were writing upon it, words appeared on the smooth surface of the map. "Mr. Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape, and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people's business."
Snape froze. Harry stared, dumbstruck, at the message. But the map didn't stop there. More writing was appearing beneath the first."Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Moony, and would like to add that Professor Snape is an ugly git."
It would have been funny if the situation hadn't been so serious. And there was more..."Mr. Padfoot would like to register his astonishment that an idiot like that ever became a professor."
Harry closed his eyes in horror. When he'd opened them, the map had had its last word."Mr. Wormtail bids Professor Snape good day, and advises him to wash his hair, the slimeball."
