Professor Albus Dumbledore

Professor Albus Dumbledore

  • To Trust or Not to Trust, That is the Question - Dear Professor Dumbledore, I am writing to you because you are wise and seem to always know what to say. I am experiencing difficulties with who to trust. I know I have two friends that I can trust but I don't know about one of them.
  • Professors who have their favorites dilemma - Dear Professor Dumbledore, What do you do when you have a professor who has favorites in a class? What do you do if it is effecting your grades? Should I stand up for myself and risk detention or stay quiet and hope things change? Also what if a professor is lazy and won't answer my questions? What should I do?

Professor Filius Flitwick

Professor Filius Flitwick

  • Inquisitive Ravenclaw - Professor Flitwick, What does it take to be a Ravenclaw? The sorting hat described Ravenclaw students as intelligent people who are eager to learn. What happens if you only fit part of the description? For instance you are eager to learn and understand the importance of education but you don't share the extreme intelligence that other Ravenclaws have. Is Ravenclaw a place where students are eager to learn and take school seriously or is it a place where intelligent and sharp minded people study? Inquisitive Ravenclaw
  • Delusioned - Professor, when a disillusionment charm is performed..does it work only the person on whom its being performed or on anything this he is holding or is in contact with at the moment of the charm being performed?

Professor Gilderoy Lockhart

Professor Gilderoy Lockhart

  • Shazzy Shampoo - Dear Professor Lockhart, Do you use shampoo on your luxurious hair or do you simply magic it clean and gorgeous. Would love some ideas on how to keep my hair looking great like yours. Shazzy
  • Remember Nothing - Dear Professor Lockhart, I have the worst memory ever. I try and look back on my childhood, and I can't remember a thing. At this point I don't know if I ever had one. Have my memories been obliviated from my mind? Even now, things like names, places, and dates are hard for me to remember, and they are all new memories. Is there anything i can do? I'm tired of walking around feeling like I am in an empty shell. What are some things I can do to improve my memory. I have a remembrall but I forget what I am suppose to remember. I am so confused... I can't remember

Professor Neville Longbottom

Professor Neville Longbottom

  • Patronus Hopeful - Dear Professor Longbottom, What is your patronus, and when did you finally succeed at casting it?
  • Birthday Lover - Dear Professor Longbottom, Happy (belated) birthday! I was just wondering, with yours and Harry's birthdays being so close - do you celebrate together? And if so, what do you do! I can only imagine that after the Battle of Hogwarts and how you both bonded - and birthday have always been important to me. It would mean the world to me to know that you and Harry became close enough to celebrate your birthdays together, as from what I've read you were regularly forgotten by the Golden Trio in your school years.

Professor Remus Lupin

Professor Remus Lupin

  • Inquisitive Inquisitor - Dear Professor Lupin, I was wondering what your Patronus is, considering you taught Harry how to conjure his own. I've heard rumors that it's a simple wolf, but I don't believe that's true, considering seeing a wolf would bring about unhappy thoughts and possibly weaken your patronus.
  • Weary Wand Waver - Dear Professor Lupin, I often find that my wand arm grows tired after practicing magic. Is there something wrong with my wand, or is it just me? What should I do?

Professor Minerva McGonagall

Professor Minerva McGonagall

  • Lost Acceptance Letter - Professor, when am I supposed to get my letter because I turned 11 a couple of months ago is the quill destroyed or what because I really want to go to Hogwarts?
  • Cat Vision - Dear Professor McGonagall, Can cats see through invisibility cloaks?

Professor Severus Snape

Professor Severus Snape

  • Metaphorical Potions - Professor Snape, I (obviously) have a question that I believe you have the answer to. If, metaphorically speaking, you wished to get rid of a rather annoying teacher (Professor Gilderoy Lockhart for example), what would be the best potion or poison to either disable or kill (I'd be perfectly happy with the latter!) them so that one does not have to endure his incessant ability to incite blood-lust in even the most...
  • Music Never Lies - Dear Professor Snape, With all my respect, I think that Professor Dumbledore used and abused you (and maybe Harry) and was very selfish when he asked you to kill him. I know you promised him loyalty, but how do you feel about it? Or do you think I'm wrong with that point of view?

Professor Pomona Sprout

Professor Pomona Sprout

  • My Slytherin Friend - Dear Professor Sprout, Since my studies have began here at Hogwarts I have been lucky enough to have made a large and diverse group of friends. Not only in my own house, Hufflepuff, but I can also count among my friends a few Gryffindors, a couple of Ravenclaws, and one Slytherin. Now this Slytherin is probably the best friend I've ever had. Oh sure, we can get competitive over quidditch matches and the house cup. But at the end of the day we care for one another and try to spend as much free time as we can with each other. However I'm afraid to say that some of my fellow badgers don't understand how I can be friends with a snake. My Slytherin friend is not evil or vindictive or stuck up in any way. He's just very driven to succeed and has high goals for himself, which I don't see as bad thing. How can I help my fellow badgers see the error of their judgments?
  • Happy as a Badger - Dear Professor Sprout, I'm a Hufflepuff and all my friends are in Gryffindor and Slytherin. It's hard not to feel uncool when I'm around them. I'm happy as a Badger, but sometimes I wish I was cooler. What do you think I should do?

Argus Filch

  • Hygenic Hufflepuff - Dear Mr. Filch, How do you feel about Professor McGonagall as Headmistress? I know you loved Umbridge, so how does McGonagall compare?
  • The Dog Lover - Dear Mr. Filch, I was just wondering. What is it with you and your cat?

  • Bogged Down Muggle Born - Dear House-Elves, Can I please borrow one of you for a day? I'd be very nice, and make sure you were treated well, and given breaks and refreshments...but I could really use your help in my house!
  • Nervous Student - Dear Hogwart’s House Elves, I recently got my acceptance letter and I am looking forward to going to Hogwarts but I’m worried about leaving Mother. Will you clean my clothes? Will you make my bed? Will you wash my socks? From, Nervous Student ( Age 11)   Dear Nervous Student, Thank you for your question ...

Ronald Weasley

Ronald Weasley

  • Harry The Boss Potter - How is it like, having Harry as your boss?
  • Clear Blue Eyes - Ron Weasley, I'm completely confused right now. How can a bloke tell that he has feelings for a girl? Because I met this one girl and she annoys me so much because every time I look into her clear blue eyes, I can't help myself from saying stupid things. She's amazing. But she's my friend. And I don't want to ruin that friendship. What if she doesn't like me back? Did I just say that I was worried because she may not have feelings for me? This is so weird! I just cannot stand in front of her and spill things out like "Hey R.W. (I need to keep her name as a secret), I think I may have feelings for you?"

Luna Lovegood

Luna Lovegood

  • Unique Individual - Dear Miss Luna, On reading the quibbler I found out a lot about Nargles. On further research, I discovered that only those who believe can see them, but they are easy to see if you look through Spectrespecs you can see them clearly. It was one Christmas when I had received a pair of spectrespecs with the Quibbler in my stocking (best present ever!!) and I was looking aound the house for Nargles. My brother was playing with some of his toys when I looked at him. Upon this, I dicovered that his head is full of Nargles! We went to St. Mungos to see if they could do anything but they tuned me and my brother away saying there is no such thing as Nargles. However, I know that nargles do exist and I want my brother to rid himself of them. I know they are pretty harmless but he goes all funny sometimes.
  • Favorite Magical Creature - Dear Miss Lovegood, What is your favourite magical creature?
