When you saw that flash of green light, a sinister laugh knocking in your ears and a searing pain on your forehead, did you ever think that you would start childhoods and set souls ablaze?
When you were locked in your cupboard after your awful aunt and uncle refused to give you dinner, again, did you know that you would soon have millions of children smile at the sound of your name?
When you were on the train to Hogwarts, and you met your best friend Ron, did you ever wonder that we were all on the train with you, we were all excited to go to school with you, and we were estatic to be sorted into our proper houses?
Whenever you felt like you were all alone in the world, did you know that we all stood up, applauded and cheered you on, with grins outstretching the world, tears rushing down our cheeks and glasses similar to yours on our faces?
When you were terrified and thought that you had truly met your sticky end, did you know that millions of people would dress up exactly

Bring your wand, bring your owl,
Make sure Hedwig is fed.
Get on the bike, get on a broom
The burrow is now in view,
Lost only one, only one!
The oldest of the order crew.
Give me a lighter, give me a book
But not the golden snitch.
If there three wizards in the room,
Why is there only one witch?
I do, I do and now they are bonded,
Bill and Fleur are Wed.
Talk to him, and then to her
Saw lynx and then they fled.
Go to alley, go to street,
Dig deep into her pouch,
Drink and duck, stun the men
Until at least one say "ouch"!

Harry Potter versus TwilightHarry Potter versus TwilightHarry Potter versus Twilight5 years ago in Editorial More Like This
I am sick and tired of hearing about this Harry Potter versus Twilight thing. The books and authors have nothing in common, except that they are well known and quite popular amongst many people. However even then it is stupid to compare the two. I first saw this comparison when they set up a section in our school library with a board that said If you love Stephenie Meyer, youll love and had a bunch of retarded vampire books underneath (All retarded but with the exception of Vampirates. Theyre vampire pirates. How much more awesome can you get?). There was a newspaper clipping of an article calling Meyer the new J.K. Rowling. By that time I had already read the three books that were out and I was like WUT?! I thought that the Twilight books were good but very overall mediocre and completely different to Harry Potter in every way. Comparing them seemed absolutely ludicrous. Since then my opinion of the books has gone
Twilight vs. Harry PotterBefore I begin I would like to clarify that I'm not either a crazy Harry Potter fan or a Twihard. I've read both series and being completely honest I loved the Harry Potter series. But when I read the Twilight series I didn't think it was that good as people make it out to be. And when I heard someone say that Twilight is better than Harry Potter I felt inspired to make a comparison and show that Harry Potter far more superior than Twilight.

Harry Potter: The Snow QueenThere are many tales of the Winter Queen, but only one of them is true.Harry Potter: The Snow Queen5 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
It is true when they say her hair is white as snow, her eyes dark as coals; her face pale as Death. It is true that she is as old as the mountains; that she has as many names as the stars have, and how a cloak of white rabbits falls over her shoulder.
It is also true what they speak of her serpent mirror, Ouroboros, the never-ending silver chain. Mirrors never lie, but neither can they be trusted, for mirrors are the trickiest of all magical objects. There are children in Her mirror; those who strayed too far from the forest path and found the white haired Queen with her empty eyes sitting lonely beside the glass; those who stepped through the mirror chasing dreams and flickering lights, dancing all the way. And behind the glass they remain, their hearts and names, and souls stolen away in a jar for the Winter Queen and her mirror to consume, for that is how she survives the tick-tick-ticking of the clock, for a

Her question stopped my gleefulness short as I ran through what classes I had this semester through my head.
"No, mom I do not think so. Besides Professor McGonagall told me it would be possible to pull off the load. Besides, it is my last year and there is still so much to learn about the magical world."

Once a powerful dark wizard
Entered a house from the moonless night.
He cursed a little boy's parents who died
Instantly in a flash of green light.
The sorcerer then pointed his wand
Toward the child who remained.
But all his powers were gone instead,
And shall they ever be regained.
It happened many years ago
When every heart had flamed.
All because of one wizard:
Harry, the hero, the boy who lived,
Knew none of this at all.
For his uncle's family that adopted him
Had built a preventive wall.
They lied to Harry about his parents' deaths
And forced him to be their slave.
They made the cupboard his room and said
"Look at the space we'd save!"
All this ended when the moment came
On Harry's lucky day.
Hagrid the giant had came along
To take him far away.
Into the magical world he went,
At Hogwarts he found his friends:
Ron the redhead and Hermione
Whose lecture never ends.
Along with them Harry studied magic,

Fred & George: A Short Character Analysis
Right, so first off I'm a big fan of the twins: both twins, not just Fred. I've always appreciated both as separate characters and I've never really understood how so many people never picked up on their differences. So I decided to do what I do best - RANT (wayhey!). Keep in mind this is just my own opinion based on what I've read in books 1-7.
In the first place it's important to know and understand the twins' differences, especially if you're writing a story that puts particular focus on them. Yes, both twins are bonkers, fun-loving, flirtatious, stubborn and lest we forget both in the possession of a razor sharp wit. The books may describe them as identical right down to the last freckle, but this doesn't mean that they are one hundred percent identical in personality - no twins are. In fact, if Fred and George were the same they wouldn't make such a good team. Fred and George are a perfect double act and in any double act you

That has "grace" in it, but does not mention God, or Thanksgiving
Or how beautiful and perfect she looks sitting across the room with her
Hair and her eyes and her hands and her smile.

Where she sometimes sits in bed for hours, and tells herself,
"Today. I promise, today I will not eat," and gets out of bed with this firm resolution
That dissolves as she walks past the kitchen,
And she feels like crying and sometimes she wants to google the next solution
"how to make yourself throw up" but she knows she's not that desperate.
Where this 'Grace' character is maybe a little
Maybe a little "not fine"
And she makes holes in her stomach and cries
Over poetry that only matters to her
And friends only she has.

But who's English accent is terrible when she's trying
And sounds like a three-year old when she's not.

Another day passes and on our knees we cry.
On our feet we fight and we die for our beliefs.
Damned hearts rot inside us.
Devastation arose from the ashes of war.
Cities turning into black dust of endless cries of sorrow.
Children cry silently in the arms of their dead mothers.
The sun never again shines over the black earth.
Wars of endless cries have consumed the world.
All those who can fight are now dead on the battlefields.
Young, old the government doesn't care.
Victory is at stake so every one fight.
And death greets them all at equal sorrow misery.
Once the children laughed and now they cry.
They die because of the greed of the people in control.
The toys in their arms are replaced by guns for killing.
Their games are replaced by war itself.
Another bomb falls and kills innocent people.
Their bodies now rest forever under the rubble of destruction.
Fires of war consume every house and every living thing.
Everything burns in the sorrow flames of despair.

To stop being jealous and give her back her blue.
