Leaky Cauldron

The Leaky Cauldron pre-dates Muggle Charing Cross Road. When the road was to be built, the magical community performed Memory Charms on the Muggle builders – protecting the Leaky Cauldron.

The pub was built by Daisy Dodderidge, the first landlady, in the early 1500s “to serve as a gateway between the non-wizarding world and Diagon Alley.” It had a bar, several private parlour rooms, and a large dining room.

To Muggles, the pub appears to be a broken-down old shop front on Charing Cross Road. This, however, was not the case prior to the imposition of the  Statue of Secrecy and, in fact, prior to this, Muggle visitors were neither turned away, nor made to feel unwelcome.

Harry Potter Theories

Bitmoji Image

Here is my favorite (and JKR’s one of her favorites) theory here it goes:

Dumbledore is Death

In the Deathly Hallows, we hear a story within a story: “The Tale of the Three Brothers,” centered on the myth of the Peverell siblings. In the tale, each of the three magical brothers attempts to cheat Death of his due in various ways. Many fans have compared each of the three brothers to the story arcs of Voldemort, Snape, and Harry. Voldemort echoes the story of the eldest brother, who believes he can defeat Death with massive magical power but eventually fails because of his own hubris. Snape represents the middle brother, who is consumed by his grief over a lost love, Lily Potter. Finally, the youngest brother is a representation of Harry, who manages to hide from Death for a long time before willingly going with him and embracing his own demise. In many ways, Dumbledore can be seen as representing Death from the fable. He possessed all three Deathly Hallows at one point, gave Harry the invisibility cloak of the youngest Peverell brother, was at least partially responsible for the demise of both Voldemort and Snape, and is the character who greets Harry when he “dies” and goes to King’s Cross station. While we’ll probably never get an actual confirmation of the theory, Rowling herself has gone so far as to say that it is her favorite theory of all time and that “It’s a beautiful theory and it fits.”

Umbridge-itis

Umbridge-itis was an illness feigned by many Hogwarts students during the 1995–1996 school year.
Provoked by: Dolores Umbridge

In retaliation for the new Headmistress, Dolores Umbridge’s tyrannical rule, the students used the Skiving Snackboxes sold by Fred and George Weasley to create temporary illnesses, with symptoms such as fainting, vomiting, developing dangerous fevers, or spurting blood from both nostrils. The illness can be traced back to Fred and George Weasley, the progenitors of the Snackboxes and who encouraged the students to rebel against Umbridge.

These massive waves of illnesses led Umbridge to scream and shriek with rage upon entering the classroom. Despite her efforts to trace down the source, the students stubbornly told her they were suffering from “Umbridge-itis”. Taking it as an insult, she put four successive classes in detention. But after she failed to discover their secrets, the headmistress was forced to allow the students to leave in droves.

Be eccentric

Hello fellow homo sapiens, Aanya here, check out some of these facts about our favorite Nargle spotter.

First her family tree

Like the Malfoys were traditionally Slytherins the Lovegoods were traditionally Ravenclaws. And her mother’s name was Pandora Lovegood.

First Mention

She was first mentioned in the Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, during the sorting ceremony as Lily Moon.

Facts about Evanna Lynch

1-This was her first acting gig

2-Before she played Luna, her younger self loved the book series so much that her cats’ names are Luna and Dumbeldore. She also had a cat named Crookshanks who has since passed away and that it helped her overcome her struggle with anorexia.

3-She made the radish earrings that Luna wears in Order of the Phoenix. In a special feature on the Half-Blood Prince DVD with Jany Temime, Evanna revealed that she also made a bracelet that Luna wore at the Slug Club Christmas Party.

4-Even though she did have a connection with J.K. Rowling before the movies, she auditioned for the role along with 15,000 other girls. She beat the competition all by herself.

5-Not only has J.K. Rowling been a major influence and help to Evanna’s life, but she has inspired Rowling as well. J.K. has said that Evanna is the only actor/actress who has influenced her writing.

6-She has used her experience battling anorexia to help and inspire other women.”Being someone who makes people feel okay about themselves, being able to make people accept things they went through, accept themselves more, that makes me feel way better about myself than any diet has ever done.”

7-She’s a vegan! For a long time she was vegetarian, but she recently made the transition. 

“Becoming vegan was always something I wanted to do, but I didn’t want it to feel unpleasant or like I was depriving myself or sacrificing, which some people do. Someone gave me very good advice about going vegan: crowd out your old habits with new ones, before you start cutting out lots of food, start learning new recipes.”

So did you like it? I may have forgotten a few but I will be posting them next time, these are a few bookmarks I created yesterday, they are not that good as I am still trying to learn, but in near time they will be better.

And if you want to do a collab post do let me know in the comments.

Patronus Part-7

If you have produced an albatross Patronus, you have a happy-go-lucky personality and enjoy throwing caution to the wind. The Dementors would be unlikely to get you down with this giant feathered friend soaring in to save the day. It is the rarest Patronus on Pottermore.

Natalie McDonald

Natalie McDonald, a first-year student in Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire was named after a real girl who died of leukemia. She wrote to J.K. Rowling asking her what would happen in the next book because she wouldn’t live to see it, but by the time J.K. Rowling replied, Natalie had died.
