Harry Potter Today:
from: Logan - One thing I think would be great to mention on a future edition of the segment is Muggle Quidditch, which has been growing bigger and bigger as we get farther away from the end of the series. The International Quidditch Association has done a great job, I think, of encouraging Quidditch as a sport while making sure it stays true to its HP-fandom roots
– The IQA is hosting a tournament next weekend Saturday, April 2 in Los Angeles, the HPA, Whismsic Alley, and The Remus Lupins will be in attendance -I’m going, should be good time http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=195852517107683
From Katherine: on April 10th, there is going to be
a Duality Ball at Eastern Michigan University’s campus that will have
The Whomping Willows, The Moaning Myrtles, Justin Finch Fletchley,
Snidget, Kwikspell and, my favorite, Seen and Unforeseen making their
first on stage appearance! It starts at 6pm and is $10 to enter. The
theme is Good vs. Evil, wear white formal wear if you represent
Dumbledore’s Army and black formal wear if you represent Death Eaters.
It’s done through The Fifth House aka the guys who did the Expeditious
(Lets talk about how common shows like these still are, particularly around universities with english department budgets)
Chunk By Chunk -
Chapter 26th – Gringotts
The trio has a plan to go in the Lestrange vault to steal the Horcrux, disguised as Bellatrix, Harry under the invisibilty cloak with Griphook, and Ron with a disfigured appearance.
We will be talking about chapter 26 – what stands out to you?
What do you guys think about the imperious curse? Is the person being controlled limited to their own physical and mental abilities? Or to the casters abilities? Could you theoretically cast the imperious curse on a person that has no experience with something like chess for example, and tell them to win a match? Or to win a gymnastics competition, with no training whatsoever?
Catherine Finnigan – …In order to create a very good likeness of someone you need to know that person, like writing a biography, you have to do your research. You need to spend time with that person to understand their personality, as this is what is going to be the difference between a good likeness and a great portrait. Then, when you are in the process of creating the art work you need the person there, you cannot solely rely on photographs.
Jocelyn – I have a question in case you guys do another canon canundrum (sp?). My friend and I always have the conversation of, where the heck to people at Hogwarts bathe if they aren’t a prefect?
Angela – Considering how critical Ron & Hermione were to Harry’s life, I’m curious if
they too will be remembered as important historical figures at Hogwarts later in
life, or after death?
From: Aleia Wright
You guys mentioned in one of your shows how you liked the random character, Nigel, who brings Ron his packages in one of the movies. WELL, in the Order of the Phoenix there is a second year that Fred and George are comforting because he had been in detention with Umbridge and his name was Nigel! So there! Not so random after all
From Lots of people: The elder wand may have helped fix hagrids wand, and dumbledore had it at the time, so why not?
