encourage you to enjoy the experience
of discovering these little "easter eggs" on your own and suggest
that this guide be used as a last resort rather than a first resort.
: Go to the "Extra Stuff" Section. Take the pen off the string and drag it over to the blank sheet with the yellow thumbtack. Draw a lightning bolt in the middle of the sheet. Try and keep the pen as steady and centered as possible. It will reveal one of the revisions Jo made when planning Order of the Phoenix
. It includes some Chapter Names that were changed as well a few ideas that didn't make the final draft.
Go to the Links area and click on the thin red book on the second shelf, Ancient Runes Made Easy. It reveals some information on several different magical creatures.
Teachers and Hippogriffs:
First, go into the "Extra Stuff" Section. Turn the radio off, then on and wait a few seconds. Listen to the announcement telling you to put six drops of red potion followed by three of the green potion on a plant. Now, leave and click on the Eraser Portkey on the desktop. It brings you to the mysterious door. Now, follow the instructions with the potion on the plant. Now you have another scrapbook piece, revealing (around the time of Prisoner of Azkaban) genders of teachers and some attempts for hippogriff names.
Go to the Rubbish Bin and move the mug four times in a clockwise circle. When you do that, stop: it forms a circle inside. Now leave and go to the Extra Stuff section, click on the card that says "Circle" with a circle on it. Now you have an original synopsis of Philosopher's Stone.
Go to the Fan Sites page. To the right, click on the small red box five times. It will open. Click the question mark bubble to get the same clue as the phone-dialing one. An early (around 1994) draft of Philosopher's Stone and information that Draco's surname used to be "Spungen."
The Cell Phone:
Besides unlocking other hidden surprises, if you stay on
the front page long enough, the cell phone in the top left corner will ring.
Pick it up by clicking the blue button to see if someone is on the other end!The Cell Phone 2:
Dial 733837 (P-E-E-V-E-S) and you'll unlock another item for your scrapbook! (Thanks to Lindsay for this secret)The Cell Phone 3:
Dial 62442 (M-A-G-I-C, as mentioned in OoP) and you'll unlock something
for your scrapbook. The Cell Phone 4:
Go to the main page. On the phone, dial "31071965" (which happens to be Jo's birthday, 7/31/65). Now you have an early (around 1994) draft of Philosopher's Stone.The Eraser:
In the Extra Stuff section, grab the eraser on the bottom
of the bulletin board and move it around the blank paper. Then, double
click the small green leaves above the image, and they'll disappear. On the main page, wait for the spider to crawl on the screen and double click that. In the
links section double click the potion bottle on the shelf. Finally, click the feather on the Fan Sites page. Clicking on all of them will add something to the scrapbook! (Thanks to everyone that sent this in!)The Key:
On the Links page, click the book with the question mark on
its spine and move it to the left, then grab the key and put it on the chest
on the right side of the screen.The Leaking Pen:
Go to the Rubbish Bin area, then double click on the pen to the left of the trash bin. This will crack it in half
and make the pen leak ink that will reveal the secret to getting another item added to your scrapbook. The first item you need to click on are
the eggs, located on the right side of the Rubbish Bin page. Next, go to the Extra Stuff section and click on the hair seen right under the blank pad of paper.
Then finally, head over to the Fan Sites page. Click and drag the empty medal box to the right or left and it will reveal marbles. Click on those
and you'll have a new item added to your scrapbook! (Thanks to all of those who were quick on figuring it out!)The Light Switch:
Click it, and the light turns off. Click
it again, and the light turns back on again. Like magic!
We're not sure why
she has a light switch on her desk... or tabloids, for that matter. Tsk tsk,
Jo! The 2nd Light Switch:
Another light switch can be found in the "Mysterious Door"
area, which will turn on the light outside of that oh-so-mysterious room. While it doesn't reveal any secrets at the present time,
maybe one day it will!The Marble:
On the main page, there is a marble located right in between
the FAQ portkey and the Welcome notepad. Browse around the site for a moment, then
go back to the main page and wait a few minutes until a Mysterious Wind blows through.
Click the marble when it starts to swirl and you'll unlock another goodie in your notebook! (Thanks to everyone who sent this in!)The Medals:
Go to the Fan Sites page, and find the two different medals lying on the main shelf. Pick them up and place them in the empty holders either side of the Fan Site
In the Extra Stuff section, the radio can be turned on or
off to listen to some music while browing the area.Looking for secrets that involve that tricky Peeves? Click Here!
