Snape on Amortentia

ask-snape-660

Dear Professor Snape, I'm sorry if this question is too personal, but I've always been curious, what does Amortentia smell like to you? Mine is hot chocolate, the earth after rain, and wet dog.

Are there wizard veterinarians?

ask-hagrid-660

Hello, Professor Hagrid. As a Muggle-born, I do not know much about the Wizarding World. While I have many questions I would like to ask, here is the one I've selected: Are there wizard veterinarians? I know this is sort of your job at Hogwarts, but what about outside of there? Surely, all wizards all over the world need some sort of care for their Hippogriffs and Phoenixes... If there are wizard vets, how would one go about training to become one? Is there a specific school for becoming a wizard vet? Oh, and I'm hungry for details - how does one examine a Phoenix, which is hot with flames? Or how do they protect a Unicorn during surgery from (literally) bloodthirsty people? I hope this letter finds you well, and please respond as soon as possible. Sincerely, Roaring Ravenclaw Read More »

Chased Chaser! Dealing with unwanted attention

ask-gilderoy-660
