Book 1, Chapter 5 Excerpt

Hey readers! Here is today's selection from one of the incredible Harry Potter Books. Now remember again that all the rights go to J.K. Rowling and Scholastic Inc. I am not trying to copy, just providing you as my reader a daily book excerpt from the books that we love! :D

So today's Selection comes from "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" in Chapter Five. This is a unique Blog Post because it isn't starting right at the beginning of the Chapter it is somewhere within the Chapter. I hope you enjoy! :D



CHAPTER FIVE (starts at the end of page 65)


People stared more than ever on the train. Hagrid took up two seats and sat knitting what looked like a canary-yellow circus tent.
"Still got yer letter, Harry?" he asked as he counted stitches.
Harry took the parchment envelope out of his pocket.
"Good," said Hagrid. "There's a list of everything yeh need."
Harry unfolded a second piece of paperer he hadn't noticed the night before, and read:


First-year students will require:
1. Three sets of plain work robes (black)
2. One plain pointed hat (black) for everyday wear
3. One pair of protective gloves (dragon hide or similar)
4. One winter cloak (black, silver fastenings)
Please note that all pupils' clothes should carry name tags

All students should have a copy of each of the following:
"The Standard Book of Spells (Grade 1)"
by Miranda Goshawk
"A History of Magic" by Bathilda Bagshot
"Magical Theory" by Alfred Waffling
"A Beginners' Guide to Transfiguration" by Emeric Switch
"One thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi"
by Phyllida Spore
"Magical Draughts and Potions" by Aresnius Jigger
"Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them"
by Newt Scamander
"The Dark Forces: A Guide to Self-Protection"
by Quentin Trimble

1 wand
1 cauldron (pewter, standard size 2)
1 set of glass or crystal phials
1 telescope
1 set brass scales
Students may also bring an owl OR a cat OR a toad


"Can we buy all this in London?" Harry wondered aloud.
"If yeah know where to go," said Hagrid.

Harry had never been to London before. Although Hagrid seemed to know where he was going, he obviously not used to getting there in an ordinary way. He got stuck in the ticket barrier on the Underground, and complained loudly that the seats were too small and the trains too slow.
"I don't know how the Muggles manage without magic," he said as they climbed a broken-down escalator that led up to a bustling road lined with shops.
Hagrid was so huge that he parted the crowd easily; all Harry had to do was keep close behind him. They passed book shops and music stores, hamburger restaurants and cinemas, but nowhere that looked as if it could sell you a magic wand. This was just an ordinary street full of ordinary people. Could there really be piles of wizard gold beneath them? Were there really shops that sold spell books and broomsticks? Might this not all some huge joke that the Dursley's cooked up? If Harry hadn't known that the Dursely's had no sense of humor, he might have thought so; yet somehow, even though everything about Hagrid had told him so far unbelievable, Harry couldn't help trusting him.
"This is it," said Hagrid, coming to a halt, "the Leaky Cauldron. It's a famous place."

Well there was today's Harry Potter Book Excerpt! :D I hope you enjoyed it! Sorry about the lateness! iPad was taken away from me by dad because he wanted to use it to surf the web for a bit, which ended up being 30 minutes! Sorry, I am going to be doing a special edition blog here later to make up for it. Well thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed this BOOK EXCERPT! :D

Book 8??? NO!

Hey my readers! :D Today's blog post as you can see is going to be about something about J.K. Rowling, the great creator of the wonderful world of Harry Potter. Well you might already know that she is going to appear on Oprah this Friday! So tomorrow night I will most defiantly be doing a Blog Post about it. Now there has been some speculation going around about what the interview is about, and what she discussed in the interview. Well one rumor I heard was that there is talk of an 8th Harry Potter book. Now I am not trying to make anyone made in saying that I do not want an 8th book, and I am not trying to say I am not a Harry Potter fan because trust me I AM A HARRY POTTER FAN! I am not trying to critique Jo or anything either. I am just saying that saying that she left the books off at a great place. She intended the series to end in 2007 with the release of Deathly Hallows. Now I am sure we (including me) wished back in 2007 before the release of the last book, that Jo would not end the series! We wanted her to continue to write more and more Harry Potter books. I say now, though, that she ended the series. It has been over for more than 3 years now. She intended for it to end, and the way she ended it was beyond perfect! She ended the series though, the way she wanted it to end! END OF STORY! :D Now I know we all are in our Post-Potter stage! I will be for the rest of my life after July 15th, 2010, but I say NO to a 8th Harry Potter book.

Now if she did make one, I know I would by it and read it and LOVE IT!!!! I just don't think she should create another one when she intended it to end with Deathly Hallows. Now I think doing the Encyclopedia is a good idea. That would be amazing! I am going to talk about that another time though! ;) I also think that if she did a book about the younger generation (like James's life) I think that would be kind of cool! It is all up to her though! I know whatever she does though will be amazing! :D I love Harry Potter! I LOVE JOANNE ROWLING, for creating the world that we all love. I will accept and love whatever she decides to do! :) <3

Well thanks for reading this Blog Post! I hope you enjoyed it! Remember to tune in tomorrow night to Oprah to watch Jo's interview with Oprah. I hope I did not make anyone mad by what I said. It is just my opinion! Whats yours???? Email me at and i might post it on here! I know lots of people have different opinions, so I would like to hear yours! :D Thanks again for reading.


Remember to tune in tonight for today's book excerpt. Also 50 DAYS UNTIL DEATHLY HALLOWS PART ONE!!!!!!! :D :D :D

@lsangeadov's 4th Guess That Chapter Blog Post!

(Also known as “The King of Snakes”) Ministry of Magic Classification: XXXXX
The first Basilisk reported was raised by Herpo “The Crazy”, a Greek dark wizard that spoke parseltounge. After a lot of experiments, Herpo found out that from a chicken egg hatched by a toad it came out a giant snake gifted with extremely dangerous powers.
The Basilikc is a bright green snake that can reach more than 49.2 feet long. The male has a scarlet feather on the top of his head. It has extremely poisonous fangs, but his most murderous weapon it’s his glance. Anyone that looks directly to its big yellow eyes will die instantly.
If the amount of food is sufficient (the basilisk feeds from all mammals, birds and reptiles) it can live a lot of years. It is known that the Basilisk raised by Herpo “the Crazy” was over nine hundred years.
The Basilisk breed its illegal since Middle Age, but the practice can be hidden easily by taking the egg from the toad’s bottom when the Ministry arrives. Nevertheless, since no one can handle them except the parseltounge speaking, the basilisks turn out to be as dangerous to the dark wizards as to anyone else. There aren’t reports of sights in Great Britain for four centuries now.

Hoped you liked it, and as we know for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, it’s a lie, there have been sights in this century.

Book Four, Chapter Eleven Excerpt

Hey my readers! :D Here is today's Harry Potter Book Excerpt. Remember all the rights from these excerpts go to J.K. Rowling and Scholastic Inc. I am not trying to copy just wanting to give you as my readers a daily excerpt from the books we all love! I hope you enjoy today's selection.

Today's Selection for the Book Excerpt comes from "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" on Chapter Eleven. I hope you enjoy!





There was a definite end-of-the-holidays gloom in the air when Harry awoke next morning. Heavy rain was still splattering against the window as he got dressed in jeans and a sweater shirt; they could change into their school robes on the Hogwarts Express.
He, Ron, Fred, and George had just reached the first-floor landing on their way down to breakfast, when Mrs. Weasley appeared at the foot of the stairs, looking harassed.
"Arthur!" she called up the staircase. "Arthur! Urgent message from the Ministry!"
Harry flattened himself against the wall as Mr. Weasley came clattering past with his robes on back-to-front and hurtled out of sight. When Harry and the others entered the kitchen, they saw Mrs. Weasley rummaging anxiously in the drawers-"I've got a quill here somewhere!"-and Mr. Weasley bending over the fire, talking to-
Harry shut his eyes hard and opened them again to make sure that they were working properly.
Amos Diggory's head was sitting in the middle of the flames like a large, bearded egg. It was talking very fast, completely unperturbed by the sparks flying around it and the flames licking its ears.
". . . Muggle neighbours heard bangs and shouting, so they went and called those what-d'you-call-ems-- please-me. Arthur, you've got to get over there"
"Here!" said Mrs. Weasley breathlessly, pushing a piece of parchment, a bottle of ink, and a crumpled quill into Mr. Weasley's hands.
"it's a real stoke of luck I heard about it," said Mr. Diggory's head. "I had to come into the office early to send a couple of owls, and I found the Improper Use of Magic lot all setting off--If Rita Skeeter gets a hold of this, Arthur--"
"What does Mad-Eye say happened?" asked Mr. Weasley, unscrewing the ink bottle, loading up his quill, and preparing to take notes.
Mr. Diggory's head rolled its eyes. "Says he heard an intruder in his yard. Says he was creeping toward the house, but was ambushed by his dustbins."
"What did the dustbins do?" asked Mr. Weasley, scribbling frantically.
"Made one hell of a noise and fired rubbish everywhere, as far as I can tell," said Mr. Diggory. "Apparently one of them was still rocketing around when the please-men turned up--"
Mr. Weasley groaned.
"And what about the intruder?"
"Arthur, you know Mad-Eye," said Mr. Diggory's head, rolling its eyes again. "Someone creeping into his yard in the dead of night? More likely there's a shell-shocked cat wandering around somewhere, covered in potato peelings. But if the Improper Use of Magic lot get their hands on Mad-Eye, he's had it---think of his record---we've got to get him off on a minor charge, something in your department--- what are exploding dustbins worth?"
"Might be a caution," said Mr. Weasley, still writing very fast, his brow furrowed. "Mad-Eye didn't use his wand? He didn't actually attack anyone?"
"I'll bet he leaped out of bed and started jinxing everything he could reach through the window," said Mr. Diggory, "but they'll have a job proving it, there aren't any casualties."
"All right, I'm off," Mr. Weasley said, and he stuffed the parchment with his notes on it into his pocket and dashed out of the kitchen again.
Mr. Diggory's head looked around at Mrs. Weasley.
"Sorry about this Molly," it said, more calmly, "bothering you so early and everything. . . but Arthur's the only one who can get Mad-Eye off, and Mad-Eye supposed to be starting his new job today. Why he had to choose last night. . ."
"Never mind, Amos," said Mrs. Weasley. "Sure you won't have a bit of toast or anything before you go?"
"Oh go on, then," said Mr. Diggory.
Mrs. Weasley took a piece of buttered toast from the stack on the kitchen table, put in into the tongs, and transferred it into Mr. Diggory's mouth.
"Fanks," he said in a muffled voice, and then, with a small pop, vanished.
Harry could hear Mr. Weasley calling hurried good-byes to Bill, Charlie, Percy, and the girls. Within five minutes, he was back in the kitchen, his robes on the right way now, dragging a comb through his hair.
"I'd better hurry--- you have a good term boys," said Mr. Weasley to Harry, Ron, and the twins, fastening a cloak over his shoulders and preparing to Disapparate. "Molly, are you going to be all right taking the kids to King's Cross?"

Book Two, Chapter 13 Excerpt

Hey my readers here is today's Book Excerpt! Remember that the rights of the book go to Joanne Rowling and Scholastic Inc. I am not trying to break any laws, just think its fun to give you, my readers, daily excerpts from the books that we love. ALL RIGHTS GO TO J.K.ROWLING and SCHOLASTIC INC. Thanks I feel like i'm going to have to include that in every book excerpt blog! Just to make sure! :D Well here is today's book excerpt. I hope you enjoy today's selection.

This particular except comes from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" on Chapter 13, which is called The Very Secret Diary. Hope you enjoy! :D





Hermione remained in the hospital wing for several weeks. There was a flurry of rum or about her disappearance when the rest of the school arrived back from Christmas holidays, because of course everyone thought she had been attacked. So many students filed past the hospital wing trying to catch a glimpse of her that Madam Pomfrey took out her curtains again and placed them around Hermione's bed, to spare her the shame of being seen with a furry face.
Harry and Ron went to visit her every evening. When the new term started, they brought her each day's homework.
"If I'd sprouted whiskers, I'd take a break from work," said Ron, tipping a stack of books onto Hermione's bedside table one evening.
"Don't be silly, Ron, I've got to keep up," said Hermione briskly. Her spirts were graetly improved by the fact that all the hair had gone from her face and her eyes were turning slowly back to brown. "I don't suppose you've got any new leads?" she added in a whisper, so that Madam Pomfrey couldn't hear her.
"Nothing," said Harry gloomily.
"I was so sure it was Malfoy," said Ron, for about the hundredth time.
"What's that?" asked Harry, pointing to something gold sticking out from under Hermione's pillow.
"Just a get well card," said Hermione hastily, trying to poke it out of sight, but Ron was too quick for her. He pulled it out, flicked it open, and read aloud:
"To miss Granger, wishing you a speedy recovery, from your concerned teacher, Professor Gilderoy Lockhart, Order of Merlin, Third Class, Honorary of the Dark Force Defense League, and five time winner of Witch Weekly's Most-Charming-Smile Award."
Ron looked up at Hermione, disgusted.
"You sleep with this thing underneath your pillow?"
But Hermione was pared answering by Madam Pomfrey sweeping over with her evening dose of medicine.
"Is Lockhart the smarmiest bloke you've ever met, or what?" Ron said to Harry as they left the infirmary and started up the stairs toward Gryffindor Tower. Snape had given them so much homework, Harry thought he was likely to be in sixth year before he finished it. Ron was just saying he wished he had asked Hermione how many rat tails you were supposed to add to a Hair-Raising Potion when an angry outburst from the floor above reached their ears.
"That's Filch," Harry muttered as they hurried up the stairs and paused, out of sight, listening hard.
"You don't think someone else's been attacked?" said Ron tensely.
They stood still, their heads inclined toward Filch's voice, which sounded quite hysterical.
"-even more work for me! Mopping all night, like I haven't got enough to do! No, this is the final straw, I'm going to Dumbledore-"
His footsteps receded along the out-of-sight corridor and they heard a distant door slam.
They poked their heads around the corner. Filch had clearly been manning his usual lookout post: They were once again on the spot where Mrs. Norris had been attacked. They saw at a glance what Filch had been shouting about. A great flood of water stretched over half of the corridor, and it looked as though it was still seeping from under the door of Moaning Myrtle's bathroom. Now that Filch had stopped shouting, they could hear Myrtle's wails echoing off the bathroom walls.
"Now what's up with her?" said Ron.
"Let's go see," said Harry, and holding their robes over their ankles they stepped through the great wash of water to the door bearing it's OUT OF ORDER sign, ignored it as always, and entered.
Moaning Myrtle was crying, if possible, louder and harder than ever before. She seemed to be hiding down her usual toilet. It was dark in the bathroom because all the candles had been extinguished in the great rush of water that had left both walls and floors soaking wet.
"What's up, Myrtle?" said Harry.
"Who's that?" glugged Myrtle miserably. "Come to throw something else at me?"
Harry waded across to her stall and said, "Why would I throw something at you?"
"Don't ask me," Myrtle shouted, emerging with a wave of yet more water, which splashed onto the already sopping floor. "Here I am, minding my own business, and someone think's it's funny to throw a book at me. . . ."
"But it can't hurt you if someone throws something at you," said Harry, reasonably. "I mean it'd just go right through you, wouldn't it?"

Well there you go! Today's Book excerpt! Found in Chamber of Secrets on pages 227-230! I hope you enjoyed today's selection! :D


Remember to tune maybe back in tonight! For the first You Write. No promises though! I will let you know on twitter though! Thanks :D

Sorting Time!!! :D

Well we all know what the sorting hat does, do we not? Well we all should know. It sort each Hogwarts student into one of the four houses. Either Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin. What else could I possibly talk about it with? Well does Hogwarts really sort to soon like Dumbledore said in Deathly Hallows? What house do I think I would be in? What house do you think you are in?

So lets start with the first question: Does Hogwarts sort students too soon? In my own opinion they do, but apart of me says this is the way Jo intended the story to be, so why should i critique it? I mean I love the Harry Potter world. Everything she has created is absolutely wonderful. A personal opinion of mine though thinks that Hogwarts does sort the students too soon into houses. It makes sense though, because the hat can access the students mind as see their personality, but I think they should sort like maybe in the 2nd year of Hogwarts. Give them a chance to prove themselves to see what house they are in. Jo did a great job though with it, but she must have had doubts about it too because she make Dumbledore say that he think sometimes Hogwarts sorts too soon. My opinion I guess then is that yes i do think they sort to soon, but it doesn't bother me. Jo created this world, a world that I (we) love, and this is the way she intended the story to be, and i would not want her to change it one bit. Now what are your feeling's on about sorting too soon? Do you think Hogwarts sorts to soon. Leave a comment in the comment box below or email me at

Now lets get to the second/third question: What house do I (you) think you would be in if you went to Hogwarts? Well me I think I would be in either Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff the way Jo describes who is in the certain houses. Why Ravenclaw? Well I like school, and i love to do work and I am wise (haha.) I don't really know for sure though do I? Why Hufflepuff? Well I am one of those kids who just likes to be quite and lay low and stuff. I am not sure really why I choose these two houses. I just did. I would love to be in Gryffindor, but i am now where near brave! Ha! So, what house do you think you would be in?? Email me and let me know or leave a comment.

Well thanks for reading the blog! I hope you enjoyed it. This, for all you new readers of the blog, is one of my regular/original blog posts. I will do one of these daily along with a Book Excerpt (book excepts vary i dunno yet if I wanna do one everyday, but i am going to tonight!) Make sure you tune back in tonight, for today's Book Excerpt! Guess that Chapter Contest will be tomorrow so you know! If you have any questions, comments, or complaints just email me at or just leave me a comment in the comment box below. Thanks again! :D


52 more days until Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One comes to theaters! GETTING EXCITED, ARE YOU?????

Book Five, Chapter 18 Excerpt

Hey Recruiters! :D Here is going to be the first blog post that is a book excerpt. REMEMBER: this is all coming from J.K. Rowling's work I am not trying to copy anything! The rights go to her and Scholastic Inc. for the rights of the book! I am just trying to have fun, and to see if you, my followers/readers will like this idea (please let me know by email or on twitter, with either by @reply my to @hpfan7 or @HParmy.) Just remember all of this is coming from Jo's wondrous books. I am not trying to copy! Well I hope you have enjoyed the selection I have chosen to pick for today! I do not know how long it will be, lets just see!

This Selection comes from "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" Chapter 18! I hope you enjoy this Book Excerpt. Remember to let me know! :D




Umbride has been reading your mail, Harry. There's no other explanation."
"You think Umbridge attacked Hedwig?" he asked, outraged.
"I'm almost certain of it," said Hermionie grimly. "Watch your frog, it's escaping."
Harry pointed his wand at the bullfrog that had been hopping hopefully toward the other side of the table-"Accio!"-and it zoomed gloomily back into his hand.
Charms was always one of the best lessons in which to enjoy a private chat: There was generally so much movement and activity that the danger of being overheard was very slight. Today, with the room full of croaking bullfrogs and cawing ravens, and with a heavy downpour of rain clattering and pounding against the classroom windows, Harry, Ron, and Hermione's whispered discussion about how Umbridge nearly caught Sirius went quite unnoticed.
"I've been suspecting that ever since Filch accused you of ordering Dungbombs, because it seemed such a stupid lie," Hermionie whispered. "I mean, once your letter had been read, it would have been quite clear you weren't ordering them, so wouldn't have been in trouble at all---it's a bit of a feeble joke isn't it? But then I thought, what if somebody just wanted an excuse to read your mail? Well then it would be a perfect way for Umbridge to manage it---tip off Filch , let him do the dirty work and confiscate the letter, then either find a way of stealing it from him or else demand to see it--I don't think Filch would object, when's he ever stuck up for a student's rights? Harry you're squashing your frog."
Harry looked down; he was indeed squeezing his bullfrog so tightly its eyes were popping; he replaced it hastily upon the desk.
"It was a very, very close call last night," said Hermione. "I just wonder if Umbridge knows how close it was. Silencio!"
The bullfrog on which she was practicing her Silencing Charm was struck dumb mid-croak and glared at her reproachfully.
"If she caught Snuffles . . ."
Harry finished her sentence for her.
"He's probably be back in Azkaban this morning." He waved his wand without really concentrating; his bullfrog swelled like a green ballon and emitted a high-pitched whistle.
"Silencio!" said Hermione hastily, pointing her wand at HArry's frog, which deflated silently before them. "Well, he mustn't do it again, that's all I just don't know how we're going to let him know. We can't send him an owl."
"I don't reckon he'll risk it again," said Ron. "He's not stupid, he knows she nearly got him. SIlencio!"
The large and ugly raven in front of him let out a derisive caw.
"Silencio, SILENCIO!
The raven cawed more loudly.
:It's the way your moving your wand," s aid Hermione, watching Ron critically. "You don't have want to wave, it's more a sharp jab."
"Ravens are harder than frogs," said Ron through clenched teeth.
"Fine, let's swap," said Hermione, seizing Ron's Raven and replacing it with her own fat bullfrog. "Silencio!" The raven continued to open and close its sharp beak, but no sound came out..
"Very good, Miss Granger!" said Professor Flitwick's squeaky little voice and Harry, Ron, and Hermione all jumped. "Now, let me see you try, Mr. Weasley!"
"Wha----? Oh---oh right," said Ron, very flustered. "Er---Silencio!"
He jabbed at the bullfrog so hard that he poked it in the eye; the frog gave a deafening croak and leapt off the desk.
It came as no surprise to any of them that Harry and Ron were given additional practice of the Silencing Charm for homework.
They were allowed to remain inside over break due to the downpour outside. They found seats in a noisy and overcrowded classroom on the first floor in which Peeves was floating dreamily up near the chandelier, occasionally blowing an ink pellet at the top of somebody's head. They had barely sat down when Angelina came struggling toward them through the groups of gossiping students.
"I've got permission!" she said. "To reform the Quidditch team!"
"Excellent!" said Ron and Harry together.
"Yeah," said Angelina, beaming. "I went to McGonagall and I think she might have appealed to Dumbledore---anyway, Umbridge had to give in. Ha! So I want you down at the pitch at seven o'clock tonight, all right, because we've got to make up time, you realize we're only three weeks away from our first match?"
She squeezed away from them, narrowly doged an ink pellet from Peeves, which hit a nearby first year instead, and vanished from sight.
Ron's smile slipped slightly as he looked out of the windows, which was now opaque with hammering rain.
"Hope this clears up . . . What's up with you Hermione?"
She too was gazing at the window, but not as though she really saw it. Her eyes were unfocused and there was a frown on her face.
"Just thinking . . ." she said, still frowning at the rain-washed window.
"About Siri . . . Snuffles?" said Harry.
"No . . . not exactly. . ." she said slowly. "More . . . wondering . . . I suppose we're doing the right thing . . . I think . . . aren't we?"
Harry and Ron looked at each other.
"Well, that clears that up," said Ron. "It would've been really annoying if you hadn't explained yourself properly."
Hermione looked at him as though she had only just realized he was there.
"I was just wondering," she said, her voice stronger now, "whether we're doing the right thing, starting the Defense Against the Dark Arts group."

Okay there was the book except for the night! In the future they will be a lot longer, but I just wanted to give you a preview for the night! To see if you like the idea. Please let me know! :D Well thanks for reading :D I hope you enjoyed this book excerpt from Order of the Phoenix!


Remember they will be longer in the future! I didn't realise that they would that this long to type! Also remember to tune back in again tonight more one of my regular old original blog posts! :)

The Very First Pic Post From @TeamPaige!!! :D

For the very first Pic Post, I choose this picture of Daniel/Harry. I found this picture on JKR could eat AlphaBits ceral and poop better literature than SMeyer, so credit to that amazing Fan page on Facebook. I know technically its two pictures, but I love the comparison it shows. The first part of the picture is Harry opening his acceptance letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the letter is just the beginning of his foreign and dangerous life ahead of him . The Second part of the picture is Harry in Dumbledore’s Office, it shows Harry in his late teens and (Spoiler Alert!) in his final years at Hogwarts, and about to start off on his adventure of finding horcruxes. (End of Spoiler Alert!) The comparisons that this picture shows is magical, it shows the years that Daniel/Harry has grown through in this amazing story. It also symbolizes the years all his fans and followers have grown with him too. I personally grew up with Harry Potter, and so have hundreds or thousands, or may be millions of people too. The picture almost portrays a loneliness to me, I feel like even though Harry is not ‘alone’ it is coming off in his body language. I fell in love with this picture the first time I saw it, and I hope the followers of Potter’s Army do too. Thanks for reading! <3.

@lsangeadov Blog Post

This is the Blog Post from the second edition of Guess That Chapter from the beginning of September! Remember? Well here it's is:

Magic Creature
ASHWINDER (Minister of Magic Classification XXX*)
The Ashwinders are born when you leave a magic fire burn (like the one made by flu pouder) without control for too long. They are light green skinny snakes with bright red eyes; they emerge from unwatched embers and they glide to dark places leaving a trail of ashes.
The Ashwinder only lives for one hour. In that time it looks for a dark place to put its eggs and then it disintegrates in dust. The eggs are a bright yellow and they irradiate an intense heat. They turn the house on fire in a few minutes, unless they’re found and frozen with the right charm.
Any wizard that realizes that one or more Ashwinders are loose around the house, should follow them immediately and locate the nest of everyone of them. Once frozen, the eggs got a lot of properties, they are very valuable as ingredients in love potions and as remedy for fever accesses.
The Ashwinders are all over the world.

*XXX- Any competent wizard can handle it.

"The what?"

Okay for this Blog Post I am talking about the Stone not the entire book. I thought I should clarify that first. Well now with that out of the way we can get to the Blog Post. First though again, I would like to say sorry for the lack of a blog post yesterday. I was hooked on reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

With that stuff out of the way now, I would like to draw your attention to the image above. As you can see, I will be talking about the Sorcerer/Philosopher's Stone. To start off with, the stone (thats what i will say instead of sorcerer's or philosopher's stone) was created by the famous Nicholas Flamel. Now we all know who he is thanks to the first Harry Potter novel. What is so special about the stone? Well it has the power to turn any metal into pure gold, and it produces the elixir of life. Now what would I do if I had the stone. OH no joke I would choose to drink the elixir and live forever. I would make a lot of money, but it would not be just for me. I would give bunches and bunches of it to charity and other things. Of course there are things I would buy. Like a MacBook, iMac, a HDTV, and lots of other things! LOTS AND LOTS OF HARRY POTTER STUFF! I know I would but them too. Like posters, and the other little things. What would you do though if you owned the stone? Would you choose to live forever with your spouse, or die? What would you spend your money that you could make on? So know how would you protect it from getting into the wrong hands? That is key! Like Nicholas did in Book One? Move it to Hogwarts? Or would you keep it in Gringotts? Or is there another way you would protect it? If I had the stone I would protect it inside of Hogwarts, but instead of the mirror, I would use like an invisibility cloak to cover the stone behind a random wall in that chamber of something like that! But what would you do? There are a lot more ways you could hide it? What is your idea? Send your idea to me at then I will post it on a special blog.

Another thing about the stone. Did you think that it was good or bad that Nicholas had the stone destroyed? I think in a sense it was both! Good because now Lord Voldemort cannot get to the stone, but bad because it was a great creation that was destroyed and also now you know that one day you will have to die.

Well Thanks for reading this blog post! I know not the greatest, but I am thinking of doing another Blog Post later tonight! Remember to Vote in the Poll! Leave comments or suggestions in the comment box below, email me at, or tweet me up on twitter. Well thanks again for reading this some what okay blog post! :)

July 21, 2007, a great ending!

Over three years ago now the book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was released to the world. It is the fastest selling book in all of history. It is the greatest book, and end to the great and wondrous Harry Potter Series created by the amazing J.K. Rowling.

Now before I get to the main topic of this post, I first must tell you about the new look to the Harry Potter Cause Blog. Do you like it? In celebration of my 3000th tweet, I decided to re-create the design and look of my great blog. I choose the colors scheme from the american Deathly Hallows book. Orange and such. I just hope all my readers like the new look?

So now to the topic of the blog. The Deathly Hallows Book. Well as you know last night, I bought a new hard-cover edition of Deathly Hallows, as a reward to myself for my 3000th tweet. I love when I buy a new hard-cover Harry Potter book. Why? Well I just like the look, and the feel of it. Then though after like maybe two, three uses they already get worn out! I am not here to talk about that though right now, I will save that for another time! So, yes I am here to talk about the Deathly Hallows book! So, over five years ago I can remember just staring to become a huge Harry Potter fan. I started reading the book, and I was instantly hooked. By the time of 2007, I would have considered myself a Harry Potter know-it-all. That did not bother me at all, and to this day it still never bothers me. Today though I am a Harry Potter Fan to heart. Meaning that I am a obsessor. I do not care what other people think, this is who I am and i will not change just for them. So in 2007, I remember this day very well. The day was July 20th! I remember the entire day. I WAS SO FREAKING EXCITED FOR THE BOOK! I was 13 years old, and I was so freaking excited for this book! I remember my mother taking me to go get it! UGH! You should have seen me that day! I was jumping off the walls. We got to the Border in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, at about 9 o'clock! Ugh, well I am not going into full detail tonight because tonight isn't the night to talk about it, tonight I am talking about the book. Another night I will talk about my experience of the Deathly Hallows Midnight releasing! A night closer to the Part One release. So I was one of the first 100 in that store to get my hands on the book, and hold it in my hands! AHHHHH I loved it! It was just a great feeling in my hands. I waited for the car to here the crackling of the book being opened for the first time. Then I began to read.

So now that I got through that little beginning, I am here to talk about the book! Like the content and the storyline. Well in my opinion it is the perfect way to end a great series like Harry Potter. There was no other way to end it than the way the amazing Jo did it! It is her book, and she ended it the way she intended it to end. (SPOILER ALERT!) Before the book was out, I always thought that Harry was going to die in the end! (SPOILER ALERT END!) Everything about this book was great. I cried at every single sad part within in the book. I actually jumped, screamed, and got excited at very many parts within the book! Jo did an excellent job creating the perfect ending to such an amazing story. I thanks her for it.

Now what do you think about the Deathly Hallows Book? Favorite of the series? Did it end the series greatly? Email me with your answers at or leave an anonymous comment in the comment box below! Thank you for reading my readers. I am now off to read out of my new Deathly Hallows book! Thanks again! :D

TWEET 3000!!!

Well, well, well as you can see on my tweets to the left, i have reached my 3000th tweet! 3000 tweets in just over a year. I remember staring my twitter account about a year ago. Then I stopped tweeting when school started last year. Though over the summer when I got my Apple iPad, I started tweeting again. Then, I started the Harry Potter Cause when twitter started blocking Deathly Hallows from being a Trending Topic. Now though the cause just exists to show the world what a unknown Harry Potter fan can do, and also to just talk about random Harry Potter topics. We all know that, but tonight's blog I am here to talk about Harry Potter in general. Why? Well because my twitter username is Hpfan7, and i choose that name for my username because then i know i could talk about anything Harry Potter. Why the 7? Well because it is my favorite Harry Potter book, and also number 7 because it is my favorite number. Hp stands for Harry Potter of course not HP computers. So i knew people would follow me if they were a Harry Potter fan, and liked to here about anything Harry Potter. I didn't have very many followers until like two months ago of course, until the Harry Potter Cause was started, and then the blog did help. I am not sure how many readers I have. I know though from the last poll that I at least have 2 readers. I hope I have more though, please let me know!

Since the beginning of the Cause though I have tweeted a lot! I mean A LOT! I bet though some of you could agree with that. On most of my tweets i have put this into the tweets: #harrypottercause. Why? Well because I hope that one day it will become a trending topic to show that even a unknown Harry Potter fan can make a difference. So far I have made some what of a difference. The Cause of course has not yet succeeded in making a Harry Potter topic a Trending Topic, but I hope with the help of my followers and my readers that we can show the world what us Harry Potter fans are made of! Now just one question to you my readers! Do you think that 3000 tweets is a lot?

Well now i must give a couple special thanks to my readers of the Harry Potter Cause. Thanks you for reading this blog and letting me know what you think! You know to reach me by my email address at for comments and feedback. My other thanks goes to my followers on my So thanks for the follow! I hope that you help the #harrypottercause. I also hope that you are spreading the word about this blog. SO THANK YOU AGAIN! Without you I wouldn't have reached 3000 tweets because I wouldn't have had any reason to tweet, and to write this blog. So THANKS!


On twitter make sure you follow @HP7days to see how many more days until Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One! :D

A Change of Mind

Now, can you guess who is in the picture above? Well I am going to tell you anyway. It is Alan Rickman! Who is he? Well he is the actor for the incredible Mr. Severus Snape. I bet you all know who he is now. Well if you have never seen the actor for Snape before this comes to you as a shock. Right? Because of his blondish hair, but it is Snape. Now you are probably wondering why I choose this as the topic for today. I choose Alan as our topic today because I have had a Change of Mind. What I mean by that is two years ago I said I didn't like the actor Alan Rickman to play the part of Snape. I have seriously changed my mind though.

Two Years ago I was on's Mugglespace talking to another Harry Potter fan. We had gotten on the subject of who we liked as our favorite actors for each character's part, and who we didn't like who played there part. I remember saying that I never liked Alan Rickman as the actor for Snape. I said this because I didn't see him as Snape. I have read the books like a lot of more times since then, and I have also watched the movies a lot of more times since then. Last night though, I watched Order of the Phoenix with my family. As I was watching I was thinking of a Blog Post Idea. Then all of a sudden we got to the part where Snape teaches Harry about Occlumency, and I was like, "Wow, how could I hate this actor for this part?" I had been thinking about that a lot lately (especially since Half-Blood Prince Movie,) and so last night I changed my mind completely on how I felt about Alan Rickman.

Now why do I like his acting for the part of Professor Snape? Well just his voice fits the part perfectly. I mean by this that he has this dark toned voice. The way he walks around, is just like it is described in the book. Also he is a really good actor because when he gets mad at Harry or something, it seems just so real. Just like it is actually happening, you know what I mean? Like he, Alan, is really actually mad! Do you get what I am trying to say here?

I have changed my mind on the actor for the series I hate the most. Alan Rickman does an excellent job portraying Professor Snape. I still do not like Bonny Wright as Ginny, but that is for another Blog Post later. Now what do you think of the actor Alan Rickman as Snape? Do you like him? Do you think he does a good job acting? Please email me at with your replies. Also which actor do you not like who plays there part? Thanks for reading my fellow readers. I will do another Blog Post tonight possibly. Thanks Again!


76 more days until Deathly Hallows Part One! :D

78 MORE DAYS!!! :D

The final Harry Potter book is finally coming to theaters. Well the first part of the book is coming very soon! November 19th, 2010, is only 78 more day's away. I mean really, it isn't that far away. I am starting to get very excited! I mean very very very excited!!!

Well as you can see above I am going to be talking about Deathly Hallows Part One. Well yes I am. Firstly I must tell you that you should not expect a Blog Post every single day, even if I do say on twitter that I am going to. Things around here change secondly for me. Like I still have to do some more homework tonight before I go to bed. I thought though I should do a blog post since I haven't done one in two days. I will try not to go more than three days without blogging. I am going to move my study hall in my school library so maybe I can type up a Blog Post on my iPad and publish it during that time each day. That would be great, so I know I got at least one blog post in each day. Well know for the Main Topic!

78 more days my readers. 78 more days until the beginning of the end of the greatest movie franchise in the world. It all began on a train station. when Joanne Rowling all of a sudden had an idea for a book, about a boy wizard. Well I must say that she had the greatest idea for a book in all of history. I think everyone reading this would quite agree. In 78 days the ending of the movie franchise will begin with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part One. Part Two is farther away, it will be released on July 15th, 2011! Part One will be released on November 19th, 2010. 78 DAYS AWAY! Aren't you getting excited???? I know I am!!!! I am going to start reading the book series. On day 75 I am going to start at book five. Why book five? Well it is probably my favorite book after the Deathly Hallows of course. So I am going (100% sure that I will) start at book five, finish the series, then completely restart the series from book one. After that i will just read the books randomly until 2 weeks before Part One, then I will read Deathly Hallows one more time before the movie! Now what are you going to do to celebrate the closeness of the movie? Leave me a comment below or email me at

Okay I know this was a sucky blog! I will do a better one tomorrow! Pinky Swear! HA! Okay I am really sorry again! Bad Blog Post. I know short too, but trust me I will do a whole lot better one tomorrow! :) Also Guess That Chapter will continue tomorrow! Thanks for reading the blog.


Sorry again! I know bad post! :(
