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?

  • 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.

Professor Minerva McGonagall

Professor Minerva McGonagall

Minerva McGonagall, Deputy Headmistress, Head of Gryffindor House, and Transfiguration Professor, has a lot on her plate – but not so much that she cannot respond to the anxious queries of current, former, or present Hogwarts students and their parents. Points will be awarded for intelligent inquiries, while disrespect will cost your House points, and may well earn you detention. While you are awaiting her attention as she takes care of some paperwork, have a biscuit.

  • Reminiscing with Professor McGonagall before Graduation - Dear Professor McGonagall, Well I really wanted to know how you like being the head mistress,of Hogwarts.

Professor Neville Longbottom

Professor Neville Longbottom

All is well. Neville Longbottom, professor of Herbology at Hogwarts, enjoys spending long afternoons after his final lesson to sit back with a cup of snapdragon tea with honey. His door is always open – unless the Venomous Tentacula needs pruning – so write him a letter!

Latest correspondence:

  • 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 Pomona Sprout

Professor Pomona Sprout

In the aftermath of the Final Battle, Pomona Sprout, Professor of Herbology and Head of Hufflepuff, has her work cut out for her. The greenhouses were nearly destroyed, and several plants have escaped. Others have been traumatized, and need soothing, replanting, or feeding. While she bustles about, accompanied by several devoted Herbology students, she dispenses calm, earthy advice, as well as some unique herbal teas, to all who seek her comfort and counsel. Write her care of Greenhouse 6, please, as that’s where she spends the majority of her time.

Latest correspondence:

  • Man-eating plants! - Dear Professor Sprout, I just arrived at Hogwarts and I'm scared to walk outside except for going in between classes. My older brother says that there are man-eating plants and worse all over the place! And even a Willow tree that has killed people before. How can I enjoy the afternoon sunshine when there are bad plants lurking around in it? -Alex
  • My Slytherin Friend - Dear Professor Sprout, Since my studies have begun 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?

Professor Remus Lupin

Professor Remus Lupin

In Spring of 1997, Professor Lupin is taking advantage of a calm spell between battling Death Eaters and worrying about Harry to answer some long-overdue letters. If you’re quick, he might get to yours before being called out on another mission.

Latest correspondence:

  • Remus Returning - Dear Professor Lupin, Did you know that you were the coolest Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher that Hogwarts has had in such a long time ? I think your lessons were breathtaking! If there was a chance, would you come back and teach again ? We miss the excitement of actually wanting to go to class.
  • Forming an Animagus - Dear Professor Lupin, I wonder how you transform into an Animagus. Does it hurt? Tell me everything that is worthy to know about Animagi because I really want to do it. Do you have any tips?

Professor Severus Snape

Professor Severus Snape

You may address me as Professor, or Potions Master. I will answer inquires from those who seek my counsel on any variety of serious matters. I have no time for insolence or dunderheads. Owls sent to Hogwarts will find me; however, since the war most believe me dead… I will not divulge my whereabouts. Every letter will be answered in the fashion it deserves.

Latest correspondence:

  • You’re a mean one – Severus Snape - Dear Severus Snape, I would really like to ask you a question. You were really rude with Harry Potter in the school, and I just can't imagine why. I know his father used to make your life terrible, but it doesn't mean you should have done the same with Harry. I mean, he isn't the one you chose his parents, right? He was just the sufferer.
  • 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...

    dear j.k. rowling if your reading this im 10 and love the harry potter books and im waiting for the 8th book . i have a few ideas for the 8th book please contact me on here thank you

    • Amanda

      Leah,nnJ.K. Rowling is not planning to write an 8th Harry Potter book. She is writing a new movie about the Harry Potter world. (There will actually be 3 new movies.) The movie happens 70 years before the books so you will not see Harry and his friends. We do not know when the movie will come out, but it will be likely be in a couple years. I don’t know if you heard about them already, but J.K. Rowling wrote books that are mentioned in the Harry Potter books. Two of them are Harry’s school books called Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them & Quidditch Through the Ages. The other is the storybook called The Tales of Beedle the Bard. They are short books, but fun to read. Especially Fantastic Beasts because Harry and Ron write notes about the beasts. Fantastic Beasts is also going to be part of the new movies.nnJ.K. Rowling will not see things you write here. You should write a letter to her. She will probably not write back to you because so many people send her things.nnThis is the address fans should use to write to J.K. Rowling:nnJ.K. RowlingnC/O Bloomsbury Publishing PLCn50 Bedford SquarenLondonnWC1B 3DPnUK

    • Hedwig

      Leah,nnnAs Amanda has said, there will be no 8th book. If you have read the seventh, you will know that it has come to a very sophisticated end as far as the novels will go. JK Rowling will and does provide us with new details, but the world will not extend any further in novel form.nnnIf she were to write an 8th book – which she will not – remember that this is not a series by the fans. Feel free to write fanfiction, but remember that the story is JK Rowling’s, not yours. nnnIf you want to write to her, use the address Amanda has provided you with.
