PS: Mr. Marshall, while your efforts at breeding new and unusual salamanders in the hearth fire were, no doubt, appreciated by the other members of Woodbine House during last year’s uncommonly cold winter, I would caution you to remember that only registered varieties are allowed as pets, and no more than three can live comfortably in a fireplace the size of that in Manor House bedrooms. Kindly take the appropriate measures to avoid setting the building on fire. — Headmistress Blair

In the mood for some backstage Star Princess prettiness.
That moment in your childhood when you realize that Diagon Alley is just the word diagonally….
And the Mirror of Erised is just the word desire backwards.
Didn’t even realize. Does that mean Knockturn Alley is nocturnally (dark/night)?
Yes, and Grimmauld Place is a play on grim old place.
And Dumbledore is just a dumb old door
Dumbledore is an old word for Bumblebee, which pleases me
LA DOULEUR EXQUISE
French: literally “exquisite pain”; the heart-wrenching pain of wanting someone you can never have.
Your voice has been the only voice that matters for so long that it’s frustrating to hear that it’s not the only one that matters anymore, I know. Learn to be a human who has to listen to others.
WOW! Black Widow action figure from Hot Toys. Amazing detail.
Yet more of my wizard professor, who has a poodle familiar which follows him everywhere.
I should probably mention that my school also has an astronomy tower decorated with alchemy symbols.
Where the hell do you go to school?
