The meaning behind the animals of Hogwarts Houses: The Hufflepuff badger

hufflepuff_wallpaper_by_dragonlover28-d45jhis

Each of the Hogwarts Houses is associated with an animal emblem along with its colors. While the similarity between Gryffindor’s values and the bravery of lions is one of the more obvious connections when it comes to these mascots, I wanted to explore how all of the Houses' traits are represented through the emblems they were assigned. I’ve already posted my research about Gryffindor’s lion and Ravenclaw’s eagle, so up next is Hufflepuff’s badger. I myself am a good old loyal Hufflepuff, so I will try to refrain from writing a novel about this fantastic house and its mighty badger. Read More »

Each of the Hogwarts Houses is represented by an animal, but it seems that the only two that have obvious connections to the characteristics valued by their assigned Houses are the Gryffindor lion and Slytherin’s serpent. In this post I’m aiming to find what the connection is between the golden eagle and the values of Ravenclaw House. Read More »

Harry Potter to lead Dark Arts demonstration at Expo Patronum

fake potter con 2

Witches and wizards from all around the globe are continuing to gather at Hogwarts for Dumbledore’s Army Live! Expo Patronum. The ministry has had to call in extra security and the convention organizers have offered free admission for those who can spare a little time to volunteer. Quite a good deal if you ask me, what with all the booths and activities that are going to take place over the next two days. You’re not going to want to miss a single magical second! As if you needed another reason to attend this convention, the Boy-Who-Lived, himself, will be leading a Dark Arts defense demonstration later this evening, along with fellow Aurors from the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and a few members of Dumbledore’s Army. Ooof! Almost got knocked over by Fred and Roxanne again. One can only imagine the magical mayhem created when they and the Potters’ children get together. Although, what’s life without a little mischief? A: “Oh! Mr. Potter!” H: “Hello, Arabella! Excuse me… (Gestures to a couple people around him.) “Enjoying the convention so far?” A: “Indeed. There is so much to see. I want to cast the Gemino jinx on myself so I can ... Read More »
