Twenty Years After: The Battle of Hogwarts, A...
This is an in-world documentary about the Battle of Hogwarts, which means that throughout the five videos (or chapters), Harry, his world, and the events in the Battle of Hogwarts will be treated as real. The documentary is created by fans and, for me, that’s what makes it great. It is made by people simply for the love of the story and I respect that. I disagree with some of their...
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 -- My...
Before anything, I want to say that I won’t be talking about the special effects, or the set design, or any movie-related technicalities. I’ll only concentrate on the story because no special effects (or whatnot), however good they are, could ever match the wonder and magic and beauty of the story.

Countdown to JK Rowling's Announcement →

About 20 hours ago, the Harry Potter (fan) world went into a frenzy as 10 letters were revealed, one by one and in intervals of several minutes, through fan sites and the Secret Street View. The ten letters revealed were: E, T, O, T, P, E, R, R, O, M. Of course, I took part...
JK Rowling's Big News
There’s only one thing that can distract me from a total lunar eclipse, and that’s an online word hunt from JK Rowling. The ten-letter word (EDIT: it seems that there are actually two words with ten letters in total) is supposed to be a teaser to something that JK Rowling is going to announce (it’s not a new book). The letters are hidden in Secret Street View. Each letter can...
