Rereading “Potter”: Remember…?


We tend to forget or overlook many details in our favorite books. The "Harry Potter" series is too long to remember every little scene, so here's a list of some of my favorite moments in the series that I tend to forget or miss as I reread them. Read More »

his past weekend, MuggleNet attended Wizard World's Chicago Comic Con at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

Love connection


There are so many relationships within the series, so I’ve decided to make this post ongoing, posting related articles in the future. But for now, let’s start with the whole Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione thing. I’m going to begin by saying this news from Rowling isn’t going to be easy for any true Harry Potter fan because we are so accustomed with Character A and Character B being together. They should be together just because they should be together. But why? Read More »

Zodiac signs in the wizarding world

Birthday Cake

J.K. Rowling has openly admitted to the influence of astrological signs in interviews. While Jo has a birthday of July 31 (identical to that of her protagonist, making them both associated with the Leo sign), her characters have a wide variety of birthdays in order to highlight their individual personalities.

Bullied by Muggles


Dear Harry Potter, My life being a student in a muggle school was quite horrible. My guy close friend had left me just because I'm weird. Maybe because he doesn't like people who believes in magic and who are witches and wizards. I used to sit alone in the corner and decided to end our friendship because I realized that he's not a true friend. We still do not talk now, but my biggest problem is the teachers here in the muggle school are so mean, especially our Math and Physics teachers. They call us stupid and they don't tolerate it. It's kinda stressful and I really don't know how to handle it. My classmates, on the other hand, were annoyed with me, not because I'm hot-headed when I'm busy - it's because I'm too quiet. Actually, that's really me. I'm not a type of person who used to talk a lot. They used to tell me negative things that aren't true and I'm usually bullied by some complete strangers. I really want to go back to Hogwarts and I have to wait until September 1 to pack my things and go straight to Platform 9 and 3/4. I don't know how to be strong, could you please help me?

Magical Creatures Class


Dear Harry Potter, I wanted to start off by telling you that I am your BIGGEST fan. You are such an amazing, brilliant and caring person that I have looked up to you ever since 4th grade when I started reading the Harry Potter books. Now I am in college, but the magic of Potter will never leave me :) There is one question that I've been wanting to ask you, and I hope you will be able to answer it. In your fifth year at Hogwarts, when Hagrid introduced threstrals in your Care of Magical Creatures class, how come you were only able to see them from the fifth year (after Cedric Diggory died)? They had always pulled the carriages at Hogwarts but you didn't see them until the fifth book. Why is that, when you saw your parents die when you were only 1-year-old? Thank you so much for taking your time to read this Mr. Potter, I hope to be able to meet you one day! Read More »

Defense Against the Dark Arts Post


Dear Harry Potter, Sir, I know you are really busy in your work, although I think you could do it all in a blink of eye because you killed Voldemort (Yeah, I don't feel fear saying his name). Still, I am disturbing you, but I do have a reason. Our Defense against the Dark Arts Teacher Mr. Wren Wringer is not well. It's been weeks and you are a great teacher, so do you think you could by any chance teach us? Read More »

The Cattermoles


Dear Harry Potter, What happened to the Cattermoles? In DH Ron impersonates Reg Cattermole and we never find out if him and his family get out of the country without capture... What about the other Muggleborns that left with Harry? And what happened to Mafalda Hopkirk (The women Hermione was impersonating) and Albert Runcorn (impersonated by Harry)? Where they punished for the breach of security? Read More »

Deathly Hallows


Dear Mr. Potter, I am a big fan of your work. You're a brilliant wizard. When I watched Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows there was one question that popped into my head. Seeing that Dumbledore had the elder wand and the resurrection stone was in the snitch, where was the cloak of invisibility? Now in your second year at Hogwarts you received an invisibility cloak that belonged to your dad. Was that cloak the third deathly hallow, the actual cloak of invisibility shed from Death's own cloak? Read More »

Voldemort is Alive


Dear Mr. Potter, It is with great concern that I am writing you, Mr. Potter. You see, I have read all seven volumes of your biography, written by Ms. Rowling, as well as seen all eight of the documentaries of your life. And there is but one thing that is left unanswered. I doubt anyone at Hogwarts would believe me, just as you felt when you were a student there. But I fear Voldemort was not entirely defeated. I know it sounds crazy, but please hear me out: Read More »

The Grandparents


Dear Harry Potter, Whatever happened to both sets of your grandparents that Dumbledore couldn't send you to one of their homes when you were a baby? In your biographies by J.K. Rowling, she failed to mention the fates of Lily and James' parents. I hope I did not bring up an unpleasant subject, but as a concerned Potter supporter, I feel it is my right to know. Read More »

Enchanted Letter


Dear Mr. Potter, I hope this owl finds you well. First of all, I would like to wish you, Sir, a very happy birthday. I hope you had time to celebrate your birth with all your responsibilities within the Auror Department. I heard some dark wizards are gaining power. I hope we don't get to see another Lord Voldemort rise, eh? I had a question for you regarding the Patronus Charm. Now, I know that you can produce one, a corporeal Patronus which takes the form of a Stag. All I've been able to do so far is produce an incorporeal one. But one day, I was able to actually see my Patronus and it was a wolf. However, ever since that one time, I can't seem to be able to produce it anymore. How is it that you keep holding on to the happiest memory you have? And what do you usually do when you just can't find one? Read More »
