Chapter 2: Spinner's End - Sassy Snape is here!! Bellatrix is a dumbass. Snape is sassy. Wormtail is...there. Also... margaritas.
On this week's episode, we are joined by Potter film actor and director Rohan Gotobed! He joins Andrew, Eric, Laura, and Micah as they continue their Chapter-by-Chapter readthrough of Sorcerer's Stone, covering Chapters 7 and 8! Harry is sorted into Gryffindor House, and learns that Snape really hates him! Welcome to the show, film and theater actor Rohan Gotobed, who you might recognize from playing Young Sirius Black in DH2! Main Discussion #1: Sorcerer's Stone, Chapter 7: The Sorting Hat 7-Word Summary: Students arrive into the Great Hall nervously Is the Sorting Ceremony too much pressure for First Years? Should there be something easier or a private ceremony? Why is the hat kept a secret from all students and possibly not even mentioned in Hogwarts, a History? We know Hermione checked... Americans struggle with British terms example 4,723, as McGonagall tells the students to 'smarten themselves up.' New Segment Alert: The hosts play "MAX That!" bringing an element from the chapter to life as a new Harry Potter streaming series Harry has a dream that the hosts find to be VERY illuminating. Was it right for Seamus' mom to keep her magical secret from his dad? Rohan pays tribute to all of Harry's peers who made it to the Sorting Ceremony but were never seen again... Main Discussion #2: Sorcerer's Stone, Chapter 8: The Potions Master 7-Word Summary: Eagerly Harry begins classes with angry teacher What were our first impressions of McGonagall, Sprout, Flitwick and Snape? New Segment: Mini Origin, where we dive into the name Quirinus and Quirrell in an effort to understand him better. Snape speaks of potions very romantically, but is he overcompensating for the lost romance of Harry's mom? The ability to spot exactly where a potion went wrong is impressive, but Snape should not be teaching students. Harry seeks refuge at Hagrid's hut, and the hosts describe their in-school hideout locations. The hosts reveal their coveted 'Most Valuable Character/Chapter of the Week' award nominees. Next Week: it's our first Muggle Mailbag episode since starting our Chapter-By-Chapter! Quizzitch: According to Book 1, if you're in the Great Hall facing the staff table, from LEFT to RIGHT what is the order in which the houses are seated?

Es ist Weihnachten!Vielleicht für machen noch etwas zu früh, aber hier in der Harry Potter Welt ist es nunmal jetzt so weit und deshalb setzen Sophia und Harry sich mit einer Heißer Schockolade an das Kapitel und lesen wie schön die Hogwartssche Weihnachtszeit ist, während Martin zusammen mit Snape und dem Grinch dieses Kapitel doch arg unlieb ist. Doch woran mag das nur liegen? Vielleicht ist es Dobby, der mal wieder gutgemeint ein wenig über das Ziel hinausschießt und so das halbe Jungs Schlafzimmer weckt? Oder liegt es an der exorbitant hohen Heizkostenrechnung vor der Martin Angst hat? (übrigens genauso wie Karkaroff der scheinbar nie in Durmstrang heizt)Oder ist es weil die Vorbereitung auf den Weihnachtsball nicht unbedingt gutes in unsren Helden hervorbringt; besonders wenn wir Ron im Auge behalten. Ihr wollte wissen was es ist? Dann schaltet wieder ein bei Happy Potter mit der wunderbaren Weihnachtselfe Sophia und Grumpy Weihnachtsmuffel Martin (Es ist September, da ist das okay!)Viel Spaß beim Zuhören!Wir haben auch eine Patreon-Seite!Schaut doch mal vorbei, es gibt Bonus-Episoden, Sticker und andere aufregende Dinge!

Chapter 21 - Hermione's Secret“You surely don't believe a word of Black's story?” Snape whispered, his eyes fixed on Dumbledore's face. “I wish to speak to Harry and Hermione alone,” Dumbledore repeated.Q1 - What do you think about the dynamic between Snape and Dumbledore in this book?“But you believe us.” “Yes I do,” said Dumbledore quietly. “But I have no power to make other men see the truth.”Q2 - What do you think of the time turner?Q3 - Have you ever felt like you ran into a past or future version of yourself?Q4 - What would you do if you had one day with the time turner?REDDIT - alphaWLFgang1 - For me it's like someone asking that question if I'd rather have all the time in the world, or all the money in the world. My answer to that question is all the time in the world. With all the time in the world, if I wanted to be rich and have all the money in the world, I could do that. So for me, having a time-turner, I feel like I would be able to either own multiple companies or have multiple jobs while still spending time with family. Obviously it'd be tricky living that way and making sure I don't go crazy, but that's what I'd try to do at the most. Just being able to be more than one place at a time and be even more productive would open countless opportunities.“Macnair, if Buckbeak has indeed been stolen, do you really think the thief will have led him away on foot?” said Dumbledore, still sounding amused. “Search the skies, if you will…Hagrid, I could do with a cup of tea. Or a large brandy.”Q5 - Do you think Dumbledore was just playing here, or did he assume Harry would fly Buckbeak away?“Yeah, I saw him,” said Harry slowly. “But…maybe I imagined it…I wasn't thinking straight…I passed out right afterwards…” “Who did you think it was?” “I think—” Harry swallowed, knowing how strange this was going to sound. “I think it was my dad.”Q6 - Hermione's response is that Harry's dad is dead, is she the single worst comfort giver on the face of the planet?Q7 - Did you think this might have been James at this point?“We'll see each other again,” he said. “You truly are — truly your father's son, Harry…”Q8 - Should their goodbye have been a little longer?Chapter 22 - Owl Post AgainDumbledore looked up, and a wide smile appeared under the long silver mustache. “Well?” he said quietly. “We did it!” said Harry breathlessly. “Sirius has gone, on Buckbeak…” “Well done.”“Well, there you have it, Severus,” said Dumbledore calmly. “Unless you are suggesting that Harry and Hermione are able to be in two places at once, I'm afraid I don't see any point in troubling them further.”Q1 - Do you think Snape is good?“Perhaps we should think about dragons at the school entrance…”Q2 - Do you think Fudge is serious?“Yes, your father was always a stag when he transformed,” he said. “You guessed right…that's why we called him prongs.”“Didn't make any difference?” said Dumbledore quietly. “It made all the difference in the world, Harry. You helped uncover the truth. You saved an innocent man from a terrible fate.”Q3 - Do you think Dumbledore or Harry is more right here? Did Harry actually do anything of worth?“Do you know, Harry, I think she might have been,” he said thoughtfully. “Who'd have thought it? That brings her total of real predictions up to two. I should offer her a pay rise…”Q4 - After Dumbledore even thinks she's only had two real predictions, do you think Trelawney is a fraud or actually good?“Pettigrew owes his life to you. You have sent Voldemort a deputy who is in your debt. When one wizard saves another wizard's life, it creates a certain bond between them…and I'm much mistaken if Voldemort wants his servant in the dept of Harry Potter.” “I don't want a bond with Pettigrew!” said Harry. “He betrayed my parents!” “This is magic at its deepest, its most impenetrable, Harry. But trust me…the time may come when you will be very glad you saved Pettigrews life.”Q5 - What do you think Dumbledore is talking about here?“You think the dead we have loved ever truly leave us? You think that we don't remember them more clearly than ever in times of great trouble? Your father is alive in you, Harry, and shows himself most plainly when you have need of him. How else could you produce that particular Patronus? Prongs rode again last night…So you did see your father last night, Harry…You found him inside yourself.”Q6 - Do you think Dumbledore is right here? “I'll fix it up with Mum and Dad, then I'll call you. I know how to use the fellytone now—” “A telephone, Ron,” said Hermione. “Honestly, you should take Muggle studies next year…”Q7 - Should witches and wizards be required to take muggle studies?Q8 - The quidditch world cup is happening next summer, what countries would you guess are quidditch powerhouses?

Hey Y'all,We've survived detention with forced blood magic while secretly practicing actual defense against the dark arts. But will we survive a real fight against adult Death Eaters, in gods know where within the Ministry of Magic (that has what the movies don't show you, giant brains with tentacles that attack), along with suffering Snapes brutal lessons at Occlumency and Dumbledore's continued avoidance?However, the fact that truly unspeakable things have been done to Umbridge after she gets abducted into the Forbidden Forest is a high point for me. Use your imagination, make it horrid, and I will be laughing with glee.Umbridge smacking Harry in the face and seeing Snape trying to reign in both his appreciation that someone finally smacked the child he loathes and his anger that someone got to smack Harry before he could. Because you know he's been wanting to do just that for years.
Chapter 18 - Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs“They've — got — a — right — to — know — everything.” Lupin panted, still trying to restrain Black. “Ron's kept him as a pet! There are parts of it even I don't understand! And Harry — you owe Harry the truth, Sirius!” Black stopped struggling, though his hollowed eyes were still fixed on Scabbers, who was clamped tightly under Ron's bitten, scratched and bleeding hands. “All right, then,” said Black, without taking his eyes off the rat. “Tell them whatever you like. But make it quick, Remus. I want to commit the murder I was imprisoned for…”Q1 - Who is right here? Lupin for waiting, or Black for wanting to kill Peter first?Q2 - Why didn't Scabbers try to escape earlier on?“Because ... because people would know if Peter Pettigrew had been an Animagus. We did Animagi in class with Professor McGonagall. And I looked them up when I did my homework - the Ministry keeps tabs on witches and wizards who can become animals; there's a register showing what animal they become, and their markings and things…and I went and looked Professor Mcgonagall up on the register, and there have only been seven Animagi this century, and pettigrews name wasn't on the list.”Q3 - I ask again, what would you be if you could be an Animagus?“It seemed impossible that I would be able to come to Hogwarts. Other parents weren't likely to want their children exposed to me. But then Dumbledore became Headmaster and he was sympathetic.”REDDIT - alphaWLFgang1 - So if we were looking at it from that perspective then I'd be a Nebelung Cat (according to Wizarding World) But, I mean if I had to choose I'd want to be something that could fly. So like an Eagle or maybe a Hippogriff would be sick too if that's even possible? I'd want to fly or swim! So maybe a shark? I'd want to be an animal that can either fly/swim under water. I'd want to fly so I can travel faster places and swim because I love the water.Q4 - Was Dumbledore right to let Lupin come to school?Q5 - Why does Hogwarts have such a rag-tag bunch of teachers?“Now, my three friends could hardly fail to notice that I disappeared once a month. I made up all sorts of stories. I told them my mother was ill, and that I had to go home to see her…I was terrified they would desert me the moment they found out what I was. But of course, they, like you, Hermione, worked out the truth and they didn't desert me at all. Instead they did something for me that would make my transformations the best times of my life. They became animagi.” Q6 - Do you know and understand how truly difficult it is to become an Animagus?Q7 - What was the craziest/most dangerous thing you've done in your life?Q8 - Have you ever put someone else's life in danger?“Sirius thought it would be — er — amusing, to tell Snape all he had to do was prod the knot on the tree-trunk with a long stick, and he'd be able to get in after me. Well, of course, Snape tried it — if he'd got as far as this house, he'd have met a fully grown werewolf — but your father, who'd heard what Sirius had done, went after Snape and pulled him back, at great risk to his life.”Q9 - Do you have any sympathy for Snape?Chapter 19 - The Servant of Lord Voldemort“YOU'RE PATHETIC!” Harry yelled. “JUST BECAUSE THEY MADE A FOOL OF YOU AT SCHOOL YOU WON'T EVEN LISTEN _” “SILENCE! I WILL NOT BE SPOKEN TO LIKE THAT!' Snape shrieked, looking madder than ever. "Like father, like son, Potter! I have just saved your neck, you should be thanking me on bended knee! You would have been well served if he'd killed you! You'd have died like your father, too arrogant to believe you might be mistaken in Black. Now get out of the way or I will make you.”Q1 - What do you think of both Harry and Snape's statements?Q2 - Were they right to attack a teacher?"Harry I as good as killed them; he croaked. I persuaded Lily and James to change to Peter at the last moment, persuaded them to use him as Secret Keeper instead of me ... I'm to blame, I know it ... the night they died, I'd arranged to check on Peter, make sure he was still safe, but when I arrived at his hiding place, he'd gone. Yet there was no sign of a struggle. It didn't feel right. I was scared. I set out for your parents' house straight away. And when I saw their house, destroyed, and their bodies - I realized what Peter must have done. What I'd done. His voice broke. He turned away.”Q3 - What do you think of this whole story so far?Q4 - Do you get the secret keeper thing still?Harry remembered what Mr Weasley had told Mrs Weasley. “The guards say he's been talking in his sleep …. always the same words... "He's at Hogwarts.” “It was as if someone had lit a fire in my head, and the Dementors couldn't destroy it…it wasn't a happy feeling…it was an obsession…but it gave me strength, it cleared my mind. So, one night when they opened my door to bring food, I slipped past them as a dog…it's so much harder for them to sense animal emotions that they were confused…I was thin, very thin…thin enough to slip through the bars…I swam as a dog back to the mainland I journeyed north and slipped into the Hogwarts grounds as a dog…I've been living in the Forest ever since…except when I come to watch the Quidditch, of course…you fly as well as your father did, Harry…He looked at Harry who did not look away. Believe me croaked black believe me. I never betrayed James and lily. I would have died before I betrayed them. And at long last, Harry believed him. Throat too tight to speak, he nodded. Q5 - Is Ron nuts for letting Scabbers sleep in his bed?Q6 - Why would Harry change his murderous tone after learning of all this, is he right to show mercy to Pettigrew?Q7 - What are your thoughts on Pettigrew, Lupin, James, and Sirius now?Chapter 20 - The Dementor's Kiss“But I'm also — I don't know if anyone's ever told you — I'm your godfather.” “Yeah, I knew that,” said Harry. “Well…your parents appointed me your guardian,” said Sirius stiffly. “If anything happened to them…” Harry waited. Did Sirius mean what he thought he meant? “I'll understand, of course, if you want to stay with your aunt and uncle,” said Sirius. “But…well…think about it. Once my name's cleared…if you wanted a…a different home…”Q1 - Is it at all crazy that Harry now is okay with living with Sirius?Q2 - Do you think it's feasible that someone like Lupin forgot to take his potion?Q3 - What did you think Harry's patronus was on finishing this chapter?Q4 - Who did you think cast the patronus on your first read?

After being unceremoniously kicked out for party-crashing, Draco is cornered by Snape; Harry overhears their suspicious conversation.- Today's prompt is: Tell us how the Rotfang Conspiracy is "working to bring down the Ministry of Magic from within using a combination of Dark Magic and gum disease.” - This episode is hosted by Kinjal Thakker.- Join in the conversation on MuggleNet's social media channels by using #PromptlyPotter

Dementoren sind wohl die schrecklichsten Kreaturen der Wizarding World. Sie bewachen Askaban das Zauberergefängnis. Aber wie kommunizieren sie eigentlich? Wie pflanzen sie sich fort und was passiert nach dem Kuss eines Dementors? Dementoren sind das Sinnbild für Depressionen. Wenn du unter Depressionen leidest, zögere nicht dir Hilfe zu suchen. Vertraue Dumbledore, wenn er sagt, dass Glück selbst in den dunkelsten Zeiten gefunden werden kann, wenn nur jemand ein Licht anzündet.
Chapter 11 - The FireboltHe stopped on a picture of his parents' wedding day. There was his father waving up at him, beaming, the untidy black hair Harry had inherited standing up in all directions. There was his mother, alight with happiness, arm in arm with his dad. And there…that must be him. Their best man…Harry had never given him a thought before.A hatred such as he had never known before was coursing through Harry like poison. Q1 - How do you feel after letting it stew, that Harry is the godson of Sirius Black?Harry looked at them. They didn't seem to understand at all. “D'you know what I see and hear every time a dementor gets too near me?' Ron and Hermione shook their heads, looking apprehensive. 'I can hear my mum screaming and pleading with Voldemort. And if you'd heard your mum screaming like that, just about to be killed, you wouldn't forget it in a hurry. And if you found out someone who was supposed to be a friend of hers betrayed her and sent Voldemort after her —”Q2 - What would you say to Harry in this moment?“Hey, Harry —” Ron gave a great whoop of laughter, “Malfoy! Wait till he sees you on this! He'll be sick as a pig! This is an international-standard broom, this is!”Q3 - Do you think Sneakoscopes can gauge animal mischief?Q4 - Why are Ron and Hermione staying for Christmas holidays?“Certainly I knew, Minerva,” she said quietly. “But one does not parade the fact that one is All-Knowing. I frequently act as though I am not possessed of the Inner Eye, so as not to make others nervous.” “That explains a great deal,” said Professor McGonagall tartly.Q5 - Who sent Harry the firebolt?Chapter 12 - The PatronusHarry knew Hermione had meant well, but that didn't stop him being angry with her.PREDICTION #11 - Short lifelines for Harry's palm.Q1 - Why is Lupin always sick?“The Patronus is a kind of positive force, a projection of the very thing that the Dementor feeds upon — hope, happiness, the desire to survive — but it cannot feel despair, as real humans can, so the Dementors can't hurt it.”Q2 - Which memory would you pick to cast your Patronus?“I heard my dad,” Harry mumbled. “That's the first time I've heard him — he tried to take on Voldemort himself, to give my mum time to run for it…”“Professor Lupin?” he said. “If you knew my dad, you must've known Sirius Black as well.” Lupin turned very quickly. “What gives you that idea?” he said sharply. “Nothing — I mean, I just knew they were friends at Hogwarts, too…” Lupin's face relaxed. “Yes, I knew him,” he said shortly. “Or I thought I did.”Q3 - Do you think Lupin and Sirius Black are working together in any way?“They clamp their jaws upon the mouth of the victim and — suck out his soul.” Harry accidentally spat out a bit of butterbeer. “What — they kill —?” “Oh, no,” said Lupin. “Much worse than that. You can exist without your soul, you know, as long as your brain and heart are still working. But you'll have no sense of self anymore, no memory, no … anything. There is no chance of recovery. You'll just — exist. As an empty shell. And your soul is gone forever…lost.”Q4 - What are your thoughts on the Dementor's kiss?Harry sat stunned for a moment at the idea of someone having their soul sucked out through their mouth. But then he thought of Black. “He deserves it,” he said suddenly. “You think so?” said Lupin lightly. “Do you really think anyone deserves that?”Q5 - Do you think anyone deserves the Dementor's kiss?DRINK FOR SCABBERS!Q6 - Do you think Hermione was right to tattle about the broom?Chapter 13 - Gryffindor Versus Ravenclaw“He bit Goyle for us once!” Ron said miserably. “Remember, Harry?” “Yeah, that's true,” said Harry. “His finest hour,” said Fred.Q1 - Would you like to play Quidditch?Q2 - How incompetent is Madam Hooch?She smiled at Harry as the teams faced each other behind their captains, and he felt a slight jolt in the region of his stomach that he didn't think had anything to do with nerves.Q3 - How would you coach quidditch to make sure your team won? Are there any kind of Moneyball situations with Quidditch?Q4 - Who's side do you take in the friendship battle: Ron or Hermione?Q5 - Do you think Harry's dream meant anything?“Professor, I woke up and Sirius Black was standing over me, holding a knife!” Professor McGonagall stared at him. “Don't be ridiculous, Weasley.”Q6 - How is Sirius Black getting in the castle so easily?Chapter 14 - Snape's GrudgeQ1 - What should the procedure be after Sirius Black has been caught sneaking into Hogwarts again?Q2 - Why hadn't Sirius killed Ron and then gone to Harry?“But I gotta tell yeh, I thought you two'd value yer friend more'n broomsticks or rats. Tha's all.”Ron had to hold onto the fence to keep himself standing, he was laughing so hard.Q3 - What is the hardest you have ever laughed?“So, everyone from the Minister of Magic downwards has been trying to keep famous Harry Potter safe from Sirius Black. But famous Harry Potter is a law unto himself. Let the ordinary people worry about his safety! Famous Harry Potter goes where he wants to, with no thought for the consequences.”Q4 - Does Snape have a point about Harry here?“I told you to shut up about my dad!” Harry yelled. “I know the truth, all right? He saved your life! Dumbledore told me! You wouldn't even be here if it weren't for my dad!” Snape's sallow skin had gone the color of sour milk. “And did the Headmaster tell you the circumstances in which your father saved my life?” he whispered. “Or did he consider the details too unpleasant for precious Potter's delicate ears?”Q5 - What do you think of Snape and James Potter?Q6 - Who do you think made the Marauders Map?Your parents gave their lives to keep you alive, Harry. A poor way to repay them — by gambling their sacrifice for a bag of magic tricks.”Chapter 15 - The Quidditch Final“There'll be an appeal, though, there always is. Only I can't see any hope…nothing will have changed.” “Yeah it will,” said Ron fiercely. “You won't have to do all the work alone this time, Hermione. I'll help.” Hermione flung her arms around Ron's neck and broke down completely. Ron, looking quite terrified, patted her very awkwardly on the top of the head. Finally, Hermione drew away.Q1 - Do you think Ron and Hermione or Harry and Hermione are a better couple?Harry and Ron both made furious moves toward Malfoy, but Hermione got there first — SMACK! She had slapped Malfoy around the face with all the strength she could muster.Q2 - How do we like aggressive Hermione?“Fine!” she repeated swinging the bag over her shoulder and almost knocking Ron off his chair, “I give up! I'm leaving!” And to the whole class's amazement, Hermione strode over to the trapdoor, kicked it open, and climbed down the ladder out of sight.PREDICTION - ONE WILL LEAVE THE NUMBER FOREVER!Q3 - What do you think is the deal with Crookshanks and the grim?The Gryffindor crowd were screaming themselves hoarse — Gryffindor were sixty points in the lead, and if Harry caught the snitch now, the cup was theirs.Q4 - How bad of a seeker is Malfoy?Q5 - Do you guys like quidditch now?
In this episode, we discuss Dumbledore's role as a Death Eater. Enjoy!Topics:Dumbledore would give false advice. If he was working with Voldemort, sending students and staff to their doom would only help the cause. And Dumbledore is a center for information and advice. But what would cause this sudden turn to the dark side? Well, it would have to be something far in Dumbledore's past that was big enough to leave an impact and give him time to mull it over. Something like Ariana's death? If the situation had been a little different and Dumbledore had been the one to kill her, he might not have recovered. Would Snape be in on it? With Dumbledore and Voldemort working together, Snape might not have as much of a role. But that might not be true. Snape has an inside line to every side in the battle, and even with Dumbledore having the same, Snape knows different people and can get different information. Overall, Snape is better in the know that out.Much More!Having anything you want to hear or say? Click here for a voice submission or here for text.

Chapter 8 - Flight of the Fat LadyQ1 - How do you think the Fat Lady feels that she is just known as the Fat Lady?“Well, look at it logically,” said Hermione turning to the rest of the group. “I mean, Binky didn't even die today, did he, Lavender just got the news today —” Lavender wailed loudly, “—and she can't have been dreading it, because it's come as a real shock—” “Don't mind Hermione, Lavender,” said Ron loudly, “she doesn't think other people's pets matter very much.”Q2 - Is Hermione a good pet owner?Q3 - If you started a magical shop in Hogsmeade, what would it be?He thought for a moment of telling Lupin about the dog he'd seen in Magnolia Crescent but decided not to. He didn't want Lupin to think he was a coward.Q4 - What is this potion that Snape gives Lupin?Q5 - How is fearing fear most wise?“He got very angry when she wouldn't let him in, you see.” Peeves flipped over, and grinned at Dumbledore from between his own legs. “Nasty tempers he's got, that Sirius Black.”Q6 - How good is the end of this chapter?!Chapter 9 - Grim DefeatQ1 - Should the students be sent home after Sirius Black got in the castle?“Have you any theories as to how he got in, Professor?” asked Snape. Harry raised his head very slightly off his arm to free his other ear. “Many, Severus, each of them as unlikely as the next.”Q2 - How do you think Sirius got in the castle?Harry knew she was deeply interested in the Gryffindor team's prospects.Q3 - Is it alarming that McGonnagal chooses Madam Hooch to oversee the practices?“You are easily satisfied. Lupin is hardy over-taxing you — I would expect first-years to be able to deal with Red Caps and Grindylows. Today we shall discuss — werewolves.”Q4 - If you had to fight a werewolf, how do you think you'd defeat it?“This is the second time you have spoken out of turn, Miss Granger,” said Snape coolly. “Five more points from Gryffindor for being an insufferable know-it-all.”Q5 - Why is Snape so mean?“Not Harry, not Harry, please not Harry!” “Stand aside, you silly girl…stand aside, now…” “Not Harry, please no, take me, kill me instead—”Q6 - What is this that Harry heard during the dementor attack?Q7 - Do you think Harry will be a bad seeker now he doesn't have a good broom?Chapter 10 - The Marauder's MapMadam Pomfrey insisted on keeping Harry in the hospital wing for the rest of the weekend. He didn't argue or complain, but he wouldn't let her throw away the shattered remains of his Nimbus Two Thousand. He knew he was being stupid, knew that the Nimbus was beyond repair, but Harry couldn't help it; he felt as though he'd lost one of his best friends.Q1 - Is Harry being extreme by saying he'd lost one of his friends?Ron finally cracked, flinging a large, slippery crocodile heart at Malfoy, which hit him in the face and caused Snape to take fifty points from Gryffindor.Q2 - 50!?“The dementors affect you worse than the others because there are horrors in your past that the others don't have.”...”Dementors are among the foulest creatures that walk this earth. They infest the darkest, filthiest places, they glory in decay and despair, they drain peace, hope and happiness out of the air around them. Even muggles feel their presence, though they can't see them. Get too near a Dementor and every good feeling, every happy memory, will be sucked out of you. If it can, the Dementor will feed on you long enough to reduce you to something like itself — soulless and evil. You'll be left with nothing but the worst experiences of your life. And the worst that has happened to you, Harry, is enough to make anyone fall off their broom. You have nothing to feel ashamed of.”Q3 - What are your thoughts on Dementors and the Azkaban Prison?“This little beauty's taught us more than all the teachers in the school.”Q4 - Where do you think the map came from?Q5 - Is Harry irresponsible for going to Hogsmeade?Q6 - What is apparition?“Never saw one without the other, did you? The number of times I had them in here — ooh, they used to make me laugh. Quite the double act, Sirius Black and James Potter!”Q7 - Does James and Sirius being best friends make Sirius that much worse for going to the dark side?“An immensely complex spell,” he said squeakily, “involving the magical concealment of a secret inside a single, living soul. The information is hidden inside the chosen person, or Secret-Keeper, and is henceforth impossible to find – unless, of course, the Secret-Keeper chooses to divulge it.”Q8 - What do you think about Sirius being Harry's godfather?Q9 - What do you think of the Fidelius Charm?“You know most of the prisoners in there sit muttering to themselves in the dark, there's no sense in them…but I was shocked at how normal Black seemed. He spoke quite rationally to me. It was unnerving. You'd have thought he was merely bored…Yes, I was astounded at how little effect the Dementors seemed to be having on him.”Q10 - What do you think about Peter Pettigrew?Q11 - How do you feel after hearing this story?

Chapter 6 - Talons and Tea Leaves“Dad had to go out to Azkaban one time, remember, Fred? And he said it was the worst place he'd ever been.

Most of the prisoners go mad in there.”Q1 - What do you think of Dementors sucking the happiness out of a place?“How're you supposed to be in three classes at once?” “Don't be silly,” said Hermione shortly. “Of course, I won't be in three classes at once.”Q2 - Do you think Hermione could handle the workload of three classes at once?Q3 - Would you want to take a Divination class?PREDICTION #1 - Neville's Grandma is Ill.PREDICTION #2 - Parvati must beware a red-haired man.PREDICTION #3 - February will bring the flu…she will lose her voice.PREDICTION #4 - By Easter one of them will leave forever.PREDICTION #5 - Lavender's dread will happen Friday the sixteenth of October.PREDICTION #6 - Neville breaking the pink cup.

Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today we're discussing Severus Snape, Voldemort, and Horcruxes. More specifically- we're going to be discussing whether or not Snape was aware of the fact that Voldemort had created horcruxes- Voldemort's key to immortality. Voldemort's creation of Horcruxes- which are arguably one of the darkest and most twisted forms of magic- started off with just a misguided young boy, unsure of his place in the world. Tom Riddle was an orphan, abandoned by his mother at Wool's Orphanage before he ever got a chance to know her. His existence was a tragedy- and the only reason that he was ever birthed at all was because his mother had used a love potion on his father. When the effects of the love potion wore off, Tom Riddle Sr immediately left Merope, and this meant that Tom Riddle started off his life with nothing but abandonment. After years at the orphanage, Dumbledore eventually discovered the young Riddle- and brought him to the world's finest magical school. While a student at Hogwarts, Riddle was very impressive, and he expressed an unparalleled ability to learn. He constantly asked questions, and he didn't want to leave any stone unturned when it came to the wizarding world. There is one particular branch of magic, however, that captivated Riddle, and it's a form of magic that he certainly should have never discovered. That magic involved Horcruxes- objects in which dark witches or wizards have imbued part of their soul. The ultimate purpose of creating a horcrux is to achieve immortality. However, the truly sinister component of creating a horcrux is that in order to produce one, you must MURDER someone. As he grew older, and as he learned more about Horcruxes, he began to create them for himself- and eventually, he had many- being one of only two known wizards to have created them. At one point in time Severus Snape was a full-fledged death eater and devoted servant of the dark lord. Disgusted with the actions of the quote on quote ‘good guys', and fuelled by the torment that he had endured for much of his upbringing, Snape turned to the dark side and became one of Voldemort's right hand men. In fact, it was Snape himself that overheard Sybil Trelawney discussing the fabled prophecy- and Snape too, who relayed the message to Voldemort. The two were close- Snape trusted Voldemort and Voldemort trusted Snape, but that all changed when Lily Evans' life was in danger. Given that Snape was in Voldemort's inner-circle for so many years, and that he had formed such a close bond with him- I always wondered, was Snape AWARE of Voldemort's horcruxes? And if not- why wasn't he? Snape was a bonafide magical genius- and he knew more about magic than almost every other wizard in the wizarding world- having gone down the rabbit hole of both sides of the wizarding spectrum- good and bad. Not only that, but he was a master legilimens- a master of THE MIND. He knew exactly how to read people, how to analyze their behaviours and patterns- how could he have missed powerful dark magic at play?
This week on the Binge, I covered Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets' 9th chapter: The Writing on the Wall. In this chapter Filtch is beside himself about Mrs. Norris who we find out is petrified and he blames Harry immediately as our trio was found at the scene of the crime by seemingly the entire school taking the wrong route to wherever any of them were supposed to be going. Lockhart is an idiot, Dumbledore shows amazing patience while still crushing Snape's dream of kicking Harry out of Quidditch (because that matters). We learn about the legend of the Chamber of Secrets and people immediately think Harry is an evil dark wizard boy. I also shine a light (Lumos) on Filtch. Is he really a poltergeist??? As usual I do some Divination foreshadowing, give/take house points, and callout the parts of the chapter that are utterly Riddikulus! (all the puns).

So today, hosts Joshua Noel and Keno Canady managed a little mischief and came up with what they thought would happen to Harry and all the Wizarding World, if Severus Snape would have adopted Harry Potter after James and Lilly Potter were killed by Voldemort! Why did Snape become a death eater? Would he still have gone undercover if he was Harry's guardian? What if Harry Potter grew up loved? Why wasn't Harry a jerk like his dad? Did Severus always love Lilly? Have you seen "A Very Potter Musical" by StarKid? We ask all these questions and many, many more! Let us know what you think we got right or missed in this month's "What if" on our website: systematicgeekology.org
In this episode, I go over some of my unpopular opinions about Harry Potter. Enjoy!Topics:Neville should have died. I don't have anything against him, I just think his sacrifice would mean more to the story than others. And if Neville died, we might not have to see others perish. Fred and Dobby for example.Harry should have ended up with Cho in the films. In the Harry Potter films, Ginny is not the fiery person we know her to be from the books. She has more fight in her as a first year than any other time! But Harry and Cho have a natural and healthy relationship that should have been explored more.Harry should have been expelled in the 6th year after he almost killed Draco, but Snape swooped in a gave Harry detention instead. I think Snape could have done Harry a favor by expelling him, but if Harry ever did something like that again, he would be sent to Azkaban instead of home.Much More!Having anything you want to hear or say?

Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today we're discussing Hogwarts Potions Professor, and later Headmaster Severus Snape, and his most powerful spells and abilities. Now, one thing that I want to mention right out of the gate is that Snape is one of the most powerful wizards in the wizarding world- and what was most impressive about him is that he wasn't even that old when he died. Snape died at the tender age of 38, and though he wasn't quite at the level of Voldemort or Dumbledore, he was getting there- and had he been around for a few decades longer, I think that Snape may just have had a shot at being the most powerful wizard ever. Unfortunately, we'll never know, and though I'm sure he had the potential to achieve insurmountable levels of power, realistically he did ultimately fall short of besting the likes of Voldemort and Dumbledore. With all of that being said, however, Snape was still amazing, and I feel like sometimes he's a little underrated. Throughout the series, time and time again Snape showcases spells and abilities that are difficult to conjure and often unique. He's also a well-rounded wizard because he was never afraid of venturing in to experimentation with the dark arts- he knows the good spells, and the more sinister spells- he knows it all. Snape is a testament to what can be achieved if you're really dedicated to something. As a student, Snape always had his head in the books, continually learning and progressing. He was focused, and he didn't let temporary satisfaction get in the way of achieving more- learning more. Though he had a segue down a dark path, the result of bullying and the loss of his friendship with Lily, Snape only used his hatred for the Marauders as fuel- it gave him the drive and the motivation to be more, to do more. And today, we're going to be diving in and looking at Snapes 5 most powerful spells and abilities.

Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today, we're discussing Wormtail AKA Peter Pettigrew. Wormtail gets a bad wrap, and has arguably the worst reputation of the entire franchise, with perhaps the exception of Umbridge. No one, not even Wormtail's allies, held him in a very high regard, and one of the reasons that people looked down on him was that they saw him as submissive and weak. Voldemort and the death eaters disrespected him, never truly giving him the time of day. Wormtail was instrumental in Voldemort's resurgence, so it's a testament to Voldemort's sinister nature, and Wormtail's submissive nature, that he could disrespect him so openly. At one point, wormtail was sent to Snape's house to ‘assist' him, but Snape ended up treating him like his servant, a supreme gesture of disrespect: Severus Snape: "I was under the impression that the Dark Lord sent you here to assist me." Peter Pettigrew: "To assist you, yes, but not to serve you drinks and...to clean your house!" Wormtail was a british pure-blood wizard born in 1959 or 1960, he had pale skin, unhealthy hair that was constantly falling out, and blue eyes. He was a snivelling excuse for a man whose loyalties only lay where there was power, and he did not value friendship or love in the way that most do. Despite serving both sides of the battle at one point or another, neither respected him, and those that Wormtail betrayed hated him because he was, morally, an awful awful person. And while I agree with the sentiment that Wormtail was a despicable person morally, I am not of the impression that he was an untalented wizard. In my opinion, Wormtail is one of the most underrated characters in the franchise, power wise, as if we break everything down - we can see that he was actually able to achieve quite a lot magically.
Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today, we're discussing Severus Snape, Gellert Grindelwald, Spell Creation, the Qilin, and the latest Fantastic Beasts film: The Secrets of Dumbledore. Okay- the title has probably confused you to no end. But, to be fair, it probably should- because the topic today's video is centered around is all over the place. The focus of today's video is a scene from the Secrets of the Dumbledore that contradicts Harry Potter canon as we know it. Well, at least that's what it looks like. This video idea was actually sent to me by one of my Instagram followers, so a big shout out to wills.hep on IG for bringing it to my attention. Go follow me on IG at HPTHEORY if you aren't following already. This video IS going to contain spoilers for the Secrets of Dumbledore so if you haven't seen it yet then come back later!

Welcome to Harry Potter Theory. Today, we're discussing Voldemort's reign in the second wizarding war, Hogwarts, Hogwarts FIRST YEAR STUDENTS, and wands. Let's dive in to it. Voldemort's regime during the second wizarding war really flipped the wizarding world on its axis. Where once there was peace, now there was heartbreak, separation and destruction. He had successfully taken over the ministry of magic, torn apart Diagon Alley, and EVEN managed to breach the walls of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry- the world's foremost magic school. The school, which had previously been overseen by powerful wizard (and good guy, maybe?) Albus Dumbledore, was no longer under his protection after his untimely death. Dumbledore's vacancy left a big hole in Hogwarts, and without his protection, it didn't take long for Voldemort and the Death Eaters to waltz right in. But the Death Eaters taking over Hogwarts certainly didn't mean that classes would stop. Oh no. Class was still very much in session, just with a very…different set of rules and approach. With a double-agent Snape taking the Headmaster helm, most of the school staff remained in their usual postings. However, a Death Eater takeover did of course mean that a few new faces were introduced to the faculty, like Alecto and Amycus Carrow- a pure blood brother/sister combo that took over Muggle Studies and Defence Against the Dark Arts (respectively). Ok Silas, we get it, class was still in session. What's your point? Well, school in session meant that new faces were still popping up at Hogwarts. That's right, just like Harry Potter in his first year- new, bright young witches and wizards were walking through the doors of Hogwarts for the very first time. But, can you even begin to imagine how much different this experience would have been for these NEW first years? Harry was met with wonder, magic and excitement. These new first years must have been met with darkness, terror and uncertainty- entirely unsure of where the school stood admist Voldemort's wizarding world takeover. Why were students even sent?

Chapter Eleven - The Dueling Club“So Dobby stopped us getting on the train and broke your arm…” He shook his head. “You know what, Harry? If he doesn't stop trying to save your life he's going to kill you.”Q1 - At this stage of their schooling, which Wizard or Witch would you want to duel and which would you not want to duel?“Scared?” muttered Malfoy, so that Lockhart couldn't hear him. “You wish,” said Harry out of the corner of his mouth.Q2 - If you could talk to any animal, which one would you choose?Q3 - Do you think Harry is Slytherin's descendant?“No one knows how he survived that attack by You-Know-Who. I mean to say, he was only a baby when it happened. He should have been blasted into Smithereens. Only a really powerful Dark wizard could have survived a curse like that.” He dropped his voice until it was barely more than a whisper, and said, “That's probably why You-Know-Who wanted to kill him in the first place. Didn't want another Dark Lord competing with him.”Q4 - Do you think Ernie is right here?Q5 - What do you think a blood-sucking Bugbear is?Q6 - Why are the students getting petrified rather than killed?Chapter Twelve - The Polyjuice Potion“Fawkes is a Phoenix, Harry. Phoenixes burst into flame when it is time for them to die and are reborn from the ashes. Watch him…”Q1 - Would you want to have a Phoenix as a pet?Q2 - Should Harry have confided in Dumbledore?No one, not even someone dreading taking Polyjuice Potion later, could fail to enjoy Christmas dinner at Hogwarts.Q3 - Which character would you want to impersonate for an hour after taking some polyjuice?Q4 - What do you think Draco's parents are doing that is keeping Draco at Hogwarts for the holidays?Mr Weasley was unavailable for comment, although his wife told reporters to clear off or she'd set the family ghoul on them.“And Father won't tell me anything about the last time the Chamber was opened, either. Of course, it was fifty years ago, so it was before his time, but he knows all about it, and he says that it was all kept quiet and it'll look suspicious if I know too much about it.”Q5 - Theories on who opened it the first time?Chapter 13 - The Very Secret Diary“Let's all throw books at Myrtle, because she can't feel it! Ten points if you can get it through her stomach! Fifty points if it goes through her head!”Q1 - Is Myrtle quoting from the official counting book for the point system of Hogwarts?Q2 - Do you think ghosts can die?“Because Filch made me polish his shield about fifty times in detention,” said Ron resentfully. “That was the one I burped slugs all over. If you'd wiped slime off a name for an hour, you'd remember it too.”Q3 - What do you think T.M. Riddle's special services to the school award was for?“He sounds like Percy,” said Ron, wrinkling his nose in disgust. “Prefect, Head Boy — probably top of every class.” “You say that like it's a bad thing,” said Hermione, in a slightly hurt voice.Snape was looking as though the first person to ask him for a Love Potion would be force-fed poison.Q4 - You ever get a valentine?“It was Hagrid, Ron. Hagrid opened the Chamber of Secrets fifty years ago.”Q5 - How do you think Hagrid opened the Chamber?Chapter 14 - Cornelius FudgeAnd if, as a boy, Hagrid had heard that a monster was hidden somewhere in the castle, Harry was sure he'd have gone to any lengths for a glimpse of it.Q1 - Do you think Hagrid's love for misunderstood creatures is endearing or foolish?In the end, he chose the same new subjects as Ron, feeling that if he was rubbish at them, at least he'd have someone friendly to help him.“Yet again, Cornelius, I tell you that taking Hagrid away will not help in the slightest,” said Dumbledore. His bluey eyes were full of a fire that Harry had never seen before.Q2 - What are your first thoughts of Fudge?“Take him away, an' the Muggle-borns won' stand a chance! There'll be killings next!”“However,” said Dumbledore, speaking very slowly and clearly, so that none of them could miss a word, “you will find that I will only truly have left the school when none here are loyal to me. You will also find that help will always be given at Hogwarts to those who ask for it.”Q3 - What do you think Dumbledore means?

Chapter Six - Gilderoy Lockhart“You'd better open it, Ron,“ said Neville, in a timid whisper. “It'll be worse if you don't. My gran sent me one once, and I ignored it and —” he gulped, “it was horrible.”Q1 - What do you think Gran's howler was about? And do you like the idea of howlers?At least the Howler had done one thing: Hermione seemed to think they had now been punished enough and was being perfectly friendly again.Q2 - Thoughts on Lockhart?I mean, a few people have heard of you, haven't they? All that business with He Who Must Not Be Named!” He glanced at the lightning scar on Harry's forehead. “I know, I know, it's not quite as good as winning Witch Weekly's Most Charming Smile Award five times in a row, as I have — but it's a start, Harry, it's a start.”Q3 - In their first Herbology lesson, Hermione won twenty points in twenty seconds by answering two questions correctly, yet Ron and Harry won a collective 5 points for defeating a fully grown mountain troll.“My name was down for Eton, you know, I can't tell you how glad I am I came here instead. Of course mother was slightly disappointed, but since I made her read Lockhart's books I think she's begun to see how useful it'll be to have a fully trained wizard in the family…”Q4 - What do you think happens to the animals the students transfigure into objects?Q5 - Thoughts on Colin Creevey?Q6 - Do you think Harry should sell signed pictures and give the money to the Weasley family?I clearly state in chapter twelve that my ideal birthday gift would be harmony between all magic and non-magic peoples — though I wouldn't say no to a large bottle of Ogden's Old Firewhisky.”Q7 - Do you think Lockhart is a good wizard?Chapter 7 - Mudbloods and MurmursQ1 - Do we like captain Oliver Wood, or is he a bit much?Q2 - How much of Quidditch do you think is skill vs. the equipment you buy?“At least no one on the Gryffindor team had to buy their way in,” said Hermione sharply. “They got in on pure talent.” The smug look on Malfoy's face flickered. “No one asked your opinion, you filthy little Mudblood,” he spat.Q3 - Should it be legal for a father to buy an entire team racing brooms?“If one word of it was true, I'll eat my kettle.”Q4 - Do you think anything Lockhart says is true?Q5 - Why do you think Dumbledore hired Lockhart?Mudblooks is a really foul name for someone who was Muggle-born — you know, non-magic parents. There are some wizards — like Malfoy's family — who think they're better than everyone else because they're what people call pure-blood.”Q6 - Do you have any theories on how Hagrid got expelled?Q7 - At the end of the chapter what do you think the voice was/came from?Q8 - What is the best/worst reason you ever got detention?Chapter 8 - The Deathday PartyGinny Weasley, who had been looking peaky, was bullied into taking some by Percy.“You'd think that getting hit forty-five times in the neck with a blunt axe would qualify you to join the headless hunt.”Q1 - What do you think Nick did to warrant getting hit 45 times with an axe in the neck?Q2 - Do you think there should be some regulation against turning your wife into a Yak with kwikspell?“That vanishing cabinet was extremely valuable!” he was saying gleefully to Mrs Norris. “We'll have Peeves out this time, my sweet.”Q3 - What do you think a vanishing cabinet is? Q4 - Have you ever felt like you walked through a ghost?Q5 - Would you rather go to a deathday party or a Halloween feast?And then Harry heard it. “...rip…tear…kill…” It was the same voice, the same cold, murderous voice he had heard in Lockhart's office.Q6 - What do you think this voice is?Q7 - What do you think “Enemies of the Heir, Beware” means?Chapter 9 - The Writing on the Wall“You,” he screeched, “You! You've murdered my cat! You've killed her! I'll kill you! I'll —” Q1 - Is murdering someone for murdering you pet an appropriate response?“If I might speak, Headmaster,” said Snape from the shadows, and Harry's sense of foreboding increased; he was sure nothing Snape was going to say was going to do him any good. “Potter and his friends may have simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time,” he said.Q2 - Why did Snape defend the trio?“We weren't hungry,” said Ron loudly, as his stomach gave a huge rumble.Q3 - Why doesn't Harry just tell the truth of what he heard?“I personally feel he should be taken off Gryffindor Quidditch team until he is ready to be honest.” “Really, Severus,” said Professor McGonagall sharply. Q4 - Is Ron showing bias when he is offended at mudblood, but sniggers at Squib?Q5 - The clock chimed midnight after the meeting with Dumbledore…was the feast going till 11:30?When Filch wasn't guarding the scene of the crime, he was skulking red-eyed through the corridors, lunging out at unsuspecting students and trying to put them in detention for things like ‘breathing loudly' and ‘looking happy.'”Q6 - Do you think the chamber exists? Where do you think it is? And what do you think the monster is?Q7 - How cruel are Fred and George for turning baby Ron's Teddy bear into a spider?Q8 - Thoughts on Moaning Myrtle?Q9 - How does Myrtle, who is a ghost, splash water all over the bathroom?Ghosts can pass through solid objects without causing damage to themselves or the material, but create disturbances in water, fire and air. The temperature drops in the immediate vicinity of a ghost, an effect intensified if many congregate in the same place. Their appearance can also turn flames blue. Should part or all of a ghost pass through a living creature, the latter will experience a freezing sensation as though they have been plunged into ice-cold water.Q10 - Who would you transform into if you had a little bit of polyjuice potion?“Oh, come on, no teachers going to fall for that,” said Ron. “They'd have to be really thick…”Chapter Ten - The Rogue Bludger“Homework: compose a poem about my defeat of the Wagga Wagga werewolf! Signed copies of Magical Me to the author of the best one!”Q1 - Lockhart's signature is loopy, do you think a person's signature tells a lot about them?“I'm drinking nothing with Crabbe's toenails in it…”“I never thought I'd see the day when you'd be persuading us to break rules,” said Ron, “All right, we'll do it. But not toenails, OK?”“It'll be down to you, Harry, to show them that a Seeker has to have something more than a rich father. Get to that Snitch before Malfoy or die trying, Harry, because we've got to win today, we've got to.” “So no pressure, Harry,” said Fred, winking at him.Q2 - How incompetent is Madam Hooch? (maybe a leading question…)Q3 - Should this Quidditch match have been called off?Q4 - Have you ever broken a bone?“This, sir?” said dobby, plucking at the pillowcase. “Tis a mark of the house-elf's enslavement, sir. Dobby can only be freed if his masters present him with clothes, sir. The family is careful not to pass Dobby even a sock, sir. For then he would be free to leave their house for ever.”“If he knew what he means to us, to the lowly, the enslaved, us dregs of the magical world! Dobby remembers how it was when He Who Must Not Be Named was at the height of his power, sir! We house-elves were treated like vermin, sir…Of course Dobby is still treated like that, sir. But Mostly life has improved for my kind since you triumphed over He Who Must Not Be Named. Harry Potter survived, and the Dark Lord's power was broken, and it was a new dawn, sir, and Harry Potter shone like a beacon of hope for those of us who thought the dark days would never end, sir.”Q5 - What is Dobby's deal?“If Albus hadn't been on the way downstairs for hot chocolate, who knows what might have…”Q6 - You think Dumbledore was really getting hot chocolate?“The question is not who,” said Dumbledore, his eyes on Colin. “The question is, how…”Q7 - What does he mean?
