After awhile, exhausted and drained, Harry found himself sitting on a bench beside Luna.
"I'd want some peace and quiet, if it were me," she said.
"I'd love some," he replied.
"I'll distract them all," she said. "Use your Cloak."
And before he could say a word she had cried, "Oooh, look, a Blibbering Humdinger!" and pointed out the window.
The crowd around them reacted just as Harry knew Luna knew they would. No one was looking at them. Harry slid under the cloak in an instant. It was the first feelings of relief Harry felt in his mind. It was all thanks to Luna's quick and clever thinking. Without any conversation she had know exactly what to do for him, to help him. Harry knew in this moment he loved her more than he had ever before in the three years they had gradually grown closer together. A love that would only continue to grow after this moment. He would have given up all his gold in his Gringotts vault to just stay where he was b

Between Nargles and Kisses
Harry had just finished removing the embarrassing decorations he knew were all Dobby's doing when the door creaked open behind him. The room of requirement had been kept a secret so far, but that didn't prevent Harry from being slightly jumpy about who entered, especially when they entered when he wasn't expecting anyone just yet. He turned around quickly, but his moment of being startled instantly dissipated with the entrance of Luna Lovegood, looking dreamy as always.
Harry smiled her way. His awareness of this came only a second later and then he was thankful she was too busy looking round the room to notice.
"Hello," she vaguely greeted him, still distracted by the decoration it seemed. "These are nice, did you put them up?"
"No." Harry replied quick to have a normal conversation with Luna, it was a rare occurrence after all. "It was Dobby the house-elf."
Luna turned to face him nodding at him, then she pointed upwards about h

Voldemort needs you dead.
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"!

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
Return to Grimmauld Place 2Sirius gazed at the worn tapestry of his family tree, particularly the burnt mark that was once his name. Not seeing himself among his relatives gave him a pleasant feeling. He glanced at the rest of the tree. Under Cygnus Black and Druella Rosier were two names and another burnt mark. His three cousins: Bellatrix, Narcissa and Andromeda.Return to Grimmauld Place 24 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
Sirius had always hated Bellatrix. His deranged cousin was just as obsessed with blood purity as his parents. She was already a devoted Death Eater when he started his first year at Hogwarts and was just as furious as his mother when she found out he was sorted into Gryffindor. She would often fire curses at him when he came home for the holidays, which he would skillfully dodge. The last time Sirius had seen Bellatrix was when she was sent to Azkaban. He had caught a glimpse of her from his cell. Her dark eyes were wild and she was screaming that the Dark Lord will return.
He had never cared much about Narcissa, and she never showed any interest in h

Lily sighed as she moved down the hallway, clutching her books and papers in her arms. How had she let Alice talk her into throwing away her bag and getting a new one? Sure, it had been kind of old, and a little stained, but it was better to have an old bag that no bag at all. These books felt a thousand times heavier when she had to carry them in her ARMS! She would have some serious muscles by the time her bag came in, she was sure of it.
You could always levitate them around, Alice said from beside Lily, making her turn her head and scowl. You dont always have to follow the rules, Lil. It would be easier to just levitate them around than carry them; they sure do look heavy.

For the first time in almost twenty years Sirius Black walked up the stairs of Number Twelve.
"Home, sweet home," he thought bitterly as he entered the place he hated most, slamming the door loudly behind him.
"BLOOD TRAITOR! FILTH! SCUM! SHAME OF MY FLESH! HOW DARE YOU RETURN TO THE HOUSE OF MY FATHERS! - "the portrait of Walburga Black started screeching.
Sirius hurried towards the painting and struggled to cover it.
"Always nice talking to you, Mother," he grumbled, as he finally pulled the curtain shut over the screaming portrait.
The house became completely silent. He looked down the dark hallway. Every surface was covered in a thick layer of dust. He could see the dark shapes of the heads of the house-elves on the walls. To say that he was unhappy about being back would be a big understatement.

Harry Potter versus TwilightHarry Potter versus TwilightHarry Potter versus Twilight6 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

I was stuck in a cell, and I was pissed off. The walls were white, the ceiling was white, and the floor was, you guessed it, WHITE! The worst part, I had no idea about what was happening. I curled up in a corner and shut my eyes.
"Well Jackson, It's been a while," That voice, I had heard it before and the idea of who it may have been sent shivers up my spine.
"S-sh-show yourself!" I stuttered.
The voice laughed evilly, "But that would ruin the fun, wouldn't Jackson?"
I scowled, standing up, I didn't want the voice to think of me as weak. "It would be more fun if I actually knew if it was you or not, LUKE!" I yelled.
The voice was Luke's that much I was positive about, but he was dead, gone out of our lives forever. But yet, there was his voice, on unseen intercom's around this freakily white room.

I tensed after I followed Percy into the deserted station. Something wasn't right. Then we heard the laugh. I saw Percy clench his teeth and Nico looking slightly scared next to him.
"How did they get here so soon?" Nico muttered.
Then I felt something hard and cold against my neck and I was being held from behind.
"Drop the wand." A voice hissed into my ear.
I did as I was told.
"Percy?" I croaked.
Percy swiveled to face me and his eyes widened.
"E-E-ETHAN?!" He cried out, stumbling backwards. "What are you? You were good! Then what NO!"
The boy behind me, Ethan, laughed.
"You wouldn't understand Percy." He growled.
Then there was a wand pointed at Percy's throat. I saw the black hair of Bellatrix Lestrange behind him. It didn't make sense. She was dead. Mrs. Weasely killed Bellatrix herself. Draco appeared, Sandra was next to him, she was grinning.

The world went black after Sandra's disappearing act and we woke up again under a strange pine tree. That was the good news. The bad news was a bunch of purple cables was bearing down at us.
"Peleus! It's me!" Percy groaned. Why was he talking to purple cables?
The cables swung towards him, blowing sparks? No, flame would be a better word.
"Peleus, we aren't going to touch the fleece, I swear, just let us get up and over the hill and you can go back to your stupid nap." Percy growled, angry at the cables or Sandra, I had no idea.
"At least she had the decency to land us at camp." Harry reasoned.
His glasses were lopsided on his nose as he sat up. I looked around and was calmed to see Peeta sitting next to me.

"You didn't tell them?" Sandra asked angrily,
"It seemed like a minor detail." Answered Harry.
Sandra slapped herself in the forehead. "Yes," She said. "A minor detail, it's a minor detail that you're a wizard, or that Percy's the son of Poseidon. Those are minor details you forgot to mention!"
"Well when you say it that way " Percy started but immediately went silent when he saw the look Sandra was giving him.
"Um, hate to break up the argument but, is someone going to explain what you are all talking about?!" I yelled at them.
"Not here." Sandra hissed.

I stared at Percy in wonder. He'd just turned the boy into smoke, that definitely wasn't natural. But then there was what Sandra had said, 'Ah, so you have figured it out!'
Figured what out? What was she talking about?! Or was she playing with us again? I didn't know. I turned to face her. She looked different now, glowing with an odd aura of power. Her fiery red hair was up in a braided bun but I don't know why I cared to notice. Her eyes were glowing more than usual, the eerie purple unnerving me.
"Percy," I asked again. "What did you just do."
"They're not real." Percy repeated. Great, that cleared everything up, thanks Percy.
I worked hard not to curse him. Katniss and one of the boys that she knew- what had Sandra called him? Cato.- were circling each other. Cato was smirking at Katniss, like he did this every day. Katniss had a hard look in her eyes. I didn't understand how she was so confident, she didn't have a weapon. Then I remembere

"Where was this school of yours?" Percy asked me.
"Hogwarts? I dunno really." I said, cursing under my breath. Did he really think Draco would go back there?
"We should apperate there." I muttered.
"What's apperate?" Percy asked.
He had caught me off guard, I thought he wouldn't be able to here me over the wind that was whistling in our ears.

"Is it painful?"
"Sometimes, there's this thing called splinching, and it's when part of your body doesn't come through with the rest of you. Ron did it once, small part of his arm."

"Just give me my wand." He grumbled.
"Wand?" Katniss asked staring at Harry and then at his wand. "That's a stick!"
Nico sighed. "Sandra, they might need this crash course of yours sooner."
Katniss and Peeta nodded in agreement.
"Later, Harry, please show me the fastest way to the station?"
Harry nodded and started to walk in one direction.
"We'll have to take a train there, anyone have like ten pounds?"
"I don't have mortal money!" Nico and I said in unison.

In the orange glow of her night lamp, he could just see her peeking out from the top of her bed clothes, a pale little face under her curly mop of red hair, her brown eyes with the wide, glazed look of someone tired beyond sleepiness. They blinked slowly as she answered.
"I couldn't sleep could you tell me a story?"
He sighed again and rubbed a hand exhaustedly over his face, but he knew better than to refuse. If Rose said she couldn't sleep without a story then she couldn't sleep without a story, just lie awake and come down the next morning in an almost hypnotic state that was hard to get her out of.

Ginny giggled and stepped into view, here red hair was cut short and she was holding her wand in one hand.

So it was that, bridled with angst and anger at everything in the world, Harry found himself at the door leading to Ravenclaw tower, demanding to speak to Luna. The picture refused to move, but Harry was in luck: the passageway was being opened.
Or, perhaps, not so in luck. Standing in front of him now was none other than Cho Chang. The two stared at one another awkwardly, Harry leaning from one foot to the other. "Hello, Harry" she offered. Harry simply nodded stiffly, wondering if he should turn around and go back. But Cho saw otherwise. Harry had always been absurdly easy to read, though people always seemed to choose not to (or so Luna had told him the last time they spoke)
