Unraveling the MYTHteries of the “Potter” world: We’ve all heard that Alan Rickman quote, but what is the truth behind it?
Did J.K. Rowling really say Harry and Hermione were meant to be together or did someone get a little too carried away?
We unfog the MYTHtery behind the rumor that it was the same actor used for both baby Harry in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and Albus Severus in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”!
Because “Harry Potter” fans have come to learn that nothing J.K. Rowling writes is by chance, I embarked on this journey to look at the animal emblems of all four Hogwarts Houses. I wanted to find out how previously recorded legends, myths, and other symbolic systems mentioned these animals and how the nature of the animals in traditional symbolism reflected the House values in Rowling’s work. Gryffindor is an obvious connection between the symbol of a lion and bravery. I had to do a little more research when it came to the Ravenclaw eagle and the Hufflepuff badger, but there were interesting findings regarding those two animals and how they connected to their respective houses. For today’s post I’ll be concentrating on Slytherin House and its snake emblem.
