Why are muggles born with wizarding powers

Harry Potter (News: New Movie Announced)

  • Hello,

    We come to another thread reopening.
    This time it's about the sorcerer's apprentice Harry Potter.

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v481/kaen_kazui/Logo.png

    I think everyone knows the story of boy Harry:
    The dark lord Voldemort kills his parents when Harry is just one year old and wants to kill Harry too, but does not succeed. His curse ricochets off Harry and falls back on Voldemort.
    Harry is then taken to his relatives, the Dursleys, who, however, have never thought much of Harry's parents and also treat him badly because he is something "abnormal" for them - who value order very much. But on his 11th birthday Harry finally learns that he is a wizard and that he will attend "Hogwarts", the British School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, from September 1st, where he quickly experiences adventures with his best friends Ron and Hermione.
    He soon learns that Voldemort has not been defeated for good and is already planning his return ...

    The books were from J.K. Rowling who, thanks to the success of the series, is now one of the richest women in the world. Although nobody wanted to publish the first volume for a long time, the books quickly became an international success. The first volume was released in the UK in 1997 and two years later they started planning film versions of the series, which were also very successful.

    Furthermore, three more books have been published that represent additional material and are much thinner than the actual novels.
    These are Quidditsch through the ages, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as The fairy tales of Beedle the Bard. These are books that also exist in the fictional world of Harry Potter.

    Movie Actor: Daniel Radcliffe

    Harry's parents were murdered when he was only a year old. However, all that remained from this attack was a lightning bolt scar on his forehead. From now on, he lives with the Dursleys until he turns 11, as Petunia Dursley is his mother's sister.
    When he comes to Hogwarts, he is surprised to find that everyone there knows his name. After all, he's the boy who lived.
    He quickly develops a certain tendency to want to get to the bottom of problems and thereby endanger himself.

    He's also the youngest Seeker Hogwarts has ever had.
    [tab = Ron Weasly]Born: 01.03.1980
    House: Gryffindor

    [tab = Draco Malfoy]Born: 5th June 1980
    House: Slytherin
    Movie Actor: Tom Felton

    Draco is Harry's rival at Hogwarts. He and Harry have hated each other since they first met. Draco also comes from an old wizarding family who, unlike the Weaslys, are very wealthy. He is haughty and devious. His father was one of Voldemort's followers, which is why Draco supposedly thinks a lot of the Dark Arts.
    [tab = Albus Dumbledore]Born: 1881
    House: Gryffindor
    Movie Actor: Richard Harrys (1, 2), Michael Gambon (3-7)

    House: Slytherin
    Movie Actor: Alan Rickman

    [tab = Tom Riddle alias Lord Voldemort]Born: 31.12.1926
    House: Slytherin
    Movie Actor: Ralph Fiennes

    Lord Voldemort is the one who killed Harry's parents and wanted to kill Harry too, but found his own end in it. However, it was never completely destroyed back then and has been looking for a way to return since then ... [/ tabmenu]
    More characters will probably be added.

    [tabmenu] [tab = Hogwarts]

    http://img.photobucket.com/alb…1/kaen_kazui/Wappen-1.gif


    Hogwarts is the school of witchcraft and wizardry founded around 990.
    It was founded by the four witches and wizards: Godric Gryffindor, Helga Hufflepuff, Rowina Ravenclaw and Salazar Slytherin. The houses of the school are named after these four magicians. The students are divided into the houses, which correspond to the virtues that particularly appealed to the founders.

    http://img.photobucket.com/alb…kaen_kazui/gryffindor.gif


    After Gryffindor come particularly courageous students who have the urge to prove themselves - in a positive as well as in a negative sense. It is noticeable that most of the major main characters visit this house.

    http://img.photobucket.com/alb…kaen_kazui/Hufflepuff.gif


    Hardworking and loyal students come to Hufflepuff. Because Helga Hufflepuff was of the opinion that you don't have to be particularly intelligent or talented to achieve something.

    http://img.photobucket.com/alb…/kaen_kazui/Ravenclaw.gif


    The most intelligent students can be found in Ravenclaw, intelligence was the virtue that Rowina Ravenclaw valued very much.

    http://img.photobucket.com/alb…/kaen_kazui/Slytherin.gif


    Slytherin stands for talent and determination. However, the house has a reputation for producing many dark magicians, including Lord Voldemort himself. Salazar Slytherin believed that only pure-blood children should be taught magic, which is why they are given priority in the house.
    [tab = magicians and others] magicians are people who have magical powers and can use them. The powers usually show in their early childhood, in situations where the emotions are strong.
    In order to use their powers, they need a magic wand and usually also spells. They are taught how to use it at Hogwarts (or other wizarding schools).

    Unfortunately, many wizards make a very clear distinction between themselves and "Muggles", non-magical people who are smiled at by many. Also, some wizards believe that Muggles should be ruled by wizards according to the law of the fittest.

    Many wizards also consider other magical beings to be "low". Like house-elves, centaurs or giants that are despised by many magical people.

    The extremist magicians, like Slytherin or Voldemort, also differentiate magicians according to their "blood origin".
    Purebloods are wizards who come from a pure wizarding family without a muggle in their family tree.
    Half-bloods are wizards who have at least one parent or grandparent who was a Muggle.
    Muggle-borns are wizards who come entirely from Muggle families, but still have magical powers. They are also racially referred to as "mud blood".
    Squibbs are people from magical families who have not inherited wizarding powers.
    [tab = Quidditsch] Quidditsch is a very popular sport in the wizarding world. It is played on brooms in teams of seven players each and with a total of four balls.

    The first ball is the Quaffle, which has to be thrown one of three goals there. A team can score 10 points with each goal. The three drivers of a team and the keeper are responsible for the Quaffle. The drivers try to score while the keeper tries to stop them.

    The next two balls are the bludgers. These float independently and try to attack the players in order to knock them off their brooms. The two drivers of a team are responsible for protecting their own players from the bludgers and driving them onto the opponents.

    The last ball is the little golden snitch. This ball is very small and fast. The game is not over until the Snitch is caught. The seeker is responsible for this. Catching the snitch not only ends the game, but also earns the team of the catching seeker 150 additional points. [/ Tabmenu]
    Here, too, I will add something additional.

  • I cannot and will not leave this topic uncommented! = D

    By the way - as always - very nice starting post, clear and with lots of information. ^^ But it's called Qudditch, not Quidditch; is only a letter, but the error always upsets me xD

    [tabmenu] [tab = books]How do you like the books?
    I like the books very much. Especially in the original, you can sometimes laugh your head off, it's exciting, sometimes sad and I really like the writing style. It's not too heavy, but it's also not as if J. K. Rowling doesn't trust her fans with anything. A healthy middle ground is always good.
    Unfortunately, my joy was clouded by my best friend, who talked about HP without a point and comma. It is because of her that I can no longer touch the books without being annoyed ... Still. Good book (or book that I like, whether it's in that sense Well is, I can't say - it's been too long since I've read it and I don't know anything about it anyway, I'd rather leave that to people like you, Alaiya, before I still talk utter crap xD) remains a good book.

    When did you read it for the first time?
    That should have been at 11. I didn't think of it at all before because people just annoyed me with HP here and HP there ... Actually, quite a prejudice, if you can put it that way. Then I went on vacation to the farm and met a girl my age there who was simply enthusiastic about the books. "Okay, Bloody, at least give it a try," I said to myself. Fortunately, a good friend had all the volumes and I was able to borrow them. I can't say that I regretted this decision, on the contrary = D
    I now have volumes 1-5 in English and will soon get the last two as well. I don't have the German version at all. ^^ "

    Which book do you like the most?
    That should be volume 4. I liked the idea of ​​the Triwizard Tournament, the Goblet of Fire, and Voldemort's resurrection. Part 1 and Part 3 - 1 come immediately afterwards, because it was the funniest and happiest and I just liked the general mood best. 3 because I like Sirius and because Voldi didn't even appear for a change.

    Which book do you like less?
    Volume 2 because of Aragog, I have something like a spider phobia and then quickly skimmed through this scene to get away. The basilisk was cool again. But somehow the band totally pulled itself out. I also didn't like volume 6 that much, I don't know, the ending was so sad and somehow didn't fit into it. It was unexpected, but I had this WTF moment, like "How now? Really?"
    Also: I liked the story of Volume 7, but it was too long and in parts too boring, I thought. ._.

    Which characters do you like? Which not?
    My undisputed favorite is Luna Lovegood. She's so wacky it's just cool, Ravenclaw is my favorite house and I like the way she looks too. Then comes Hermione, where she annoyed me in parts. Still, her character itself was cool, that she's a mudblood, I thought it was a nice idea and she's pretty.
    From the male characters - Sirius all the way. I think his connection with Harry is pretty cool, the way he looks after him and please. He can turn into a dog. If that's nothing ... I was also very fond of Lupine, until the aforementioned friend annoyed me so much with lupine lupine that he lost his sympathy.
    I hate Snape so much. I don't even know why. I don't like his whole character. I don't really like Harry either - the chosen one, the super-megatool wizard who can do everything and a super Qudditch player on top of that. No That was too perfect for me again. Almost Gary Stue ...

    Have you heard the audio books? If so: how do you like them?
    I am generally not a fan of audio books. However, I did listen to some scenes from the prisoner of Azkaban on a school trip because the friend in question has hearing aids and therefore cannot put in headphones or it does not work so well. I found it to be read very nicely. But I can't say anything about cuts etc.

    Would you like more books that are set in the world?
    No, not really. The story is dealt with, anything else would seem somehow out of place. Maybe even more additional volumes like "Quidditch through the ages" and "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" (both of which are really cool, by the way, are in my possession and have nice background information ready), but nothing more. That would seem forced.
    [tab = films]What do you think of the films?
    I can only speak of 1, 2, 3 and 5 as I haven't seen the others. 3 I liked best, the depiction of the werewolves, the Grimm and and and. I didn't like 2 so much because of Aragog (1 second was enough for me), but the film can't do anything about that. Here it is actually the same as with the book. 1 had a nice atmosphere, but that's about it ... at 5 I'm still undecided because it was really shortened ...

    How do you like the cast?
    "Hi, I'm Daniel Radcliffe ..." NO. YOU ARE HARRY POTTER.
    Sorry, had to be. xD
    I actually liked the line-up a lot. Daniel Radcliffe fits HP well, Emma Watson is the best Hermione I can imagine and Rupert Grint is a great fit too. I also found the other characters well cast.

    How do you like the changes compared to the books?
    They cut out the umbrella scene in 5 Dx
    I generally don't like changes that much, but you can't put the whole book into one film. ^^ "Unfortunately, I can't really say much about it either, since it has been a little while since I last read the books. Maybe you should have split 5 into two parts, like 7 - because it was a lot shortened Yes, it would have been more expensive, but you could have got more.

    What was your favorite movie? Which less?
    I can only repeat my first answer here. ^^
    [tab = general]How did you get Harry Potter?
    You heard it everywhere. The hype was so huge back then that you can't help but hear about it everywhere. Otherwise see my answer in the books! = D

    What do you think of the world?
    I found them a little small, really. ^^ "It was a nice idea to build it into the real world and how everything was explained, but in principle you only heard from Hogwarts and the surrounding area. But everything was nicely worked out for that, I like that very much.

    Would you like to be a wizard?
    Yeah, but I guess I'd be a simple witch at a wizarding school, those run-of-the-mill background characters. x'D But I like the idea of ​​being able to do magic. What possibilities one would have! However, it would also be very dangerous ...

    Which house would you like to come to?
    Ravenclaw or maybe Hufflepuff. Ravenclaw, because I'm supposedly gifted (supposedly because I don't really believe it because of my 3.0 cut) and Ravenclaw is primarily intended for smart people. Hufflepuff, because I hardly attract any attention and just am normal. Nothing special. So I would probably fit there too.

    How do you think the classes at other magic schools look like?
    I think just like at Hogwarts. Perhaps smaller and less splendid, but they can't be that different. Maybe there you learn some other magic that is appropriate for the area, or maybe there is no Quidditch at all, but other games. It's like football - it exists in every country, but may be less pronounced in other countries. Who knows, maybe they're playing magic badminton or something? xD

    Which beings do you find particularly fascinating?
    The thestrals have done it to me. I just love the idea of ​​creating beings that you only see when you've seen someone die. Above all, I think it's nice that the "mystery" of the horse-drawn carriage was still solved and didn't just stop there.

    What would you have wished for more information about?
    About the magical world outside of London. I would also like to know more about the Death Eaters; of course you can't treat everyone individually, but the servants of Voldemort just did it to me. = D I would also have liked to know which houses the children of the trio come to. x) [/ tabmenu]

  • As promised my first post here. Harry Potter is a series where I was really there from start to finish and covered myself with backgrounds and fan pages, analyzes and rumors, because I was thoroughly enthusiastic about the work. The fascinating thing about Harry Potter is that the world was settled in such a way that it can exist alongside the reality we know and belongs in our time, which is why the child in us could of course always wait for the letter from Hogwarts;) What I am saying want, Rowling came up with a wonderful concept that makes this fantasy story very realistic. The world of Harry Potter is huge and functional; In addition, Rowling manages to make total little things, which were mentioned in Book A, into essential things in Book B, which has always increased the reading fun. Every single person that appears is well thought out and you can tell that there are background stories behind many short appearances. Rowling didn't just use people to serve a purpose in a scene, she actually had "whole people" in mind with a life that played out before and after the one scene we were allowed to read.
    Anyway, that was my introduction, lol. This should only briefly show why I like Harry Potter at all. Now more in detail:

    Unlike Ron and Harry, she thinks a lot of rules, at least in theory.

    You put it really nicely, haha. That's a side that I always liked about Hermione and that I keep discovering about myself. As such, she always complies with the rules, tries to follow guidelines, to fulfill them excellently and does not like sloppiness at all. You'd think she's totally rigid and follows rules and laws without exception. At the same time, she is simply only rule-loving and orderly, but not blind. Hermione asks questions and if she sees that the existing rule is there for certain reasons that do not apply to her situation, then she has no problem breaking it. Although I think that she only learned that when she met Ron and Harry. The first year has already achieved a lot in her and the circumstances of the second year motivated her again to "think through" her attitude fundamentally. Oh, I just like Hermione ♥

    My first contact with Harry Potter came in the 5th grade when our German teacher suggested reading "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" as class reading. I still remember how it scared off some because the book was quite thick, while I was happy like a toddler because I was a bookworm even then. Once I started, I was through the book quickly and it captivated me from start to finish. Besides the fact that Harry was exactly my age at the time, it's also very easy to get into the story because the characters come across as "normal". No super talented superman, but students like you and me who also have to learn first - even if it was about magic. Harry was very personable in the first book, a quiet and humble boy, partly due to his previous life. He was never really given the chance to develop. So that was a very good introduction to the whole story, because you could really follow Harry's unfolding / development from book to book.

    At the beginning of my post I already mentioned why I like the books. One of the most important reasons is definitely the character development and the concept of every single person that appears. So you could see that very well with Harry, because he didn't come to be himself until he was 11 and not as restricted in his existence as with the Dursleys. There were moments when you loved Harry, where you pityed him and where you wanted to slap him. Especially in the later years, when the responsibility increases and he persuades himself that he has to do it all by himself so that no one else is harmed, he becomes really unsympathetic in places. You want to shake him, hit his head in the wall, or just tell him what a puke he is. Nonetheless, he always remains himself. You can see through all phases that it is basically Harry who only reacts emotionally to what is happening around him. That's a talent Rowling shows. A really great talent to get that through 7 books. And not just with Harry, but with everyone else. Neville and Draco are characters that don't appear as often as the three friends, and yet you notice the development. But I might go into that later in further articles, because you can really write a lot about each one.

    Looking at all of the books individually, I would say that I liked the fifth one the best because it was a roller coaster of emotions for me. I think I've never hated a fictional character as much as Dolores Umbridge. The woman disgusted me, upset me and awakened violent needs in me, but I'm usually more of a calm person. Harry really pissed me off for the first time in this part, which is good. It was easy to see that the events of Volume 4 did not leave him indifferent and that he was also in a development phase that is generally not very easy. A pubescent boy whose behavior does not change after such terrible experiences is not human. Hermione and Ron's helplessness towards Harry made the whole thing even more realistic, because the way things are, you don't always know how to help your friends. In the whole book there were many scenes that are more reminiscent of normal everyday life, which also appeals to me personally. Always on the trail of evil gets boring in the long run, so it really appealed to me that instead we had a bunch of rebellious youngsters who were involved in normal problems (normal, if you disregard the magical context). We learned more about Severus, which gives the band plus points because I absolutely love this character. And my dear Ginny finally had more appearances, even if this is disputed among fans as to whether these were not too Mary Sue-heavy. But yeah, I like Ginny and even have my reasons for it.
    The end of the tape was, of course, really bad for me. Sirius is a generally popular character, which is why it is understandable that I was emotionally troubled while reading. But above all because the ministry finally saw everything and it seemed so unimportant in the given situation. Oh yes, Luna has her first appearance here, so also a plus point.

    I liked less ... huh. I think when I really look at all of the books together, I liked Book 1 the least. Maybe because the story suddenly seems so simple, everything only slowly starts to roll and you only know the people superficially (superficially compared to how you know them after 7 books). In other words, I don't think the book is bad because, as already mentioned, it was a great introduction.

    I can already imagine other works that are set in the world. But then only from Rowling himself. As I said, women have almost a whole story of their own about each and every one of them, which is why I think she would write wonderful subplots. Luna Lovegood before the 5th volume? McGonagall private? The Weasleys' childhood? I would read this the same way I would read the Harry Potter books themselves. That wouldn't disturb the main story in any way, but could even deepen it, as long as Rowling works well and observes logical connections (which she usually does, even if mistakes sometimes creep in).

    So, let's start with that. I know that I have a rather unpopular opinion about some things, so if you want to contradict, just go to: D


  • GGreat starting post, I really have to say, you've made a lot of effort, I'll also try to answer the questions truthfully from time to time. (:
    How do you like the books?
    Wonderful, I'll tell you more about this in the other questions. ^^
    When did you read it for the first time?
    Uf, that was a long time ago, although I actually came across HP quite late, I say 5-10 years.
    Which book do you like the most?
    JEvery book is fantastic, no question about it, but I like the 5th part of the story, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. I think it's great how Harry Potter builds up the DA with Ron and Hermione, how Ambridge becomes more and more powerful, but then is "overthrown", the fight with the Death Eaters, just great. In terms of writing style, all books are actually the same, which is not to say that this is boring, no, the writing style of J.K. Rowling is just perfectly perfect. Serious, but also has its humorous parts, and all the situations and places are wonderfully described, so that you sink into the world of magicians.
    Which book do you like less?
    W.hen I had to choose one, it would be the seventh volume. The whole world is so terribly dark and cold and has practically no sense of humor any more. Even if that's part of it, of course.
    Which characters do you like? Which not?
    I.I can't stand Belatrix L'estrange and all of the Malfoys, and I also can't stand Snape if he neglects all students except Slytherins and if he gets a correct answer, that's just disgusting. I don't really have a favorite character.
    Have you heard the audio books? If so: how do you like them?
    HBut I was too lazy to read at times, haha. Anyway, I heard this one, the one with Rufus Beck. I love her, he embodies the voices so well, great <3
    Would you like more books that are set in the world?
    Ja, definitely.
    What do you think of the films?
    D.I like them very much, even if they don't deal with the books too detailed, I think it would be better if the films were a little more adapted to the books, because some scenes are simply missing.
    How do you like the cast?
    Gut, but Judi Dench deserves a role for me.
    How do you like the changes compared to the books?
    W.As I already mentioned, not so great.
    What was your favorite movie? Which less?
    D.the first is always beautiful, as well as the 5. I find the 7th part 1 a bit boring, but Wayne.
    How did you get Harry Potter?
    W.has he not heard of it? Anyway, I got HP through the hustle and bustle.
    What do you think of the world?
    E.a great world, no question about it.
    Would you like to be a wizard?
    Oh, too happy. Just has so many advantages: D
    Which house would you like to come to?
    Hm, i appreciate slytherin.
    How do you think the classes at other magic schools look like?
    I.ch guess not necessarily different than at Hogwarts, probably different teachers (i.e. a few different learning methods) and classrooms, but otherwise it should be the same.
    Which beings do you find particularly fascinating?
    D.ie hyppo griffins and the centaurs, the hyppo griffins because they are just so strong beings, and the centaurs because of their orphanage.
    What would you have wished for more information about?
    D.a I can't think of anything spontaneously, I generally think that J.K. Rowling described everything very well and informatively.

    Lg ^^

  • Jej, a thread about my absolute favorite book * - *: 33

    How do you like the books?
    I think it's great * - * I don't even remember how often I've read it, but at least 30 times.
    I own all 7 regular parts as well as the extra books "The Fairy Tales of Beedle the Bard", "Quidditch through the Ages" and "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them"
    Uhh, I really felt like traveling through the books with Harry again: 33

    When did you read it for the first time?
    I started when I was 6. Maybe I was 5 too, but unfortunately I don't remember that exactly anymore.
    In any case, Harry Potter was the first book I read without first watching the film c:

    Which book do you like the most?
    Pooh, hard to say ...
    But I think that will be part 3 "HP and the Prisoner of Azkaban", since my darling Sirius appears right there for the first time. In addition, Hagrid becomes a teacher ^^

    Which book do you like less?
    Again, I can't really say anything as I like them all. But if I have to decide, it will probably be part 5 "HP and the Order of the Phoenix", because Sirius is killed there by Bellatrix; (

    Which characters do you like? Which not?
    SIRIUUUUUUUUUUS * ________ * I love him * - * ...
    Yes, I love Sirius (figuratively!). Oh and don't forget Dobby * ___ * Dobby is my little weirdo, you could say ^^ '
    Nya, but actually I like everyone: Hagrid, Dumbledore, Voldi, Draco, Fred & George, Fluffy, Norbert and so on c:
    Of course there are a few I like less than the others: Umbridge (oh man, I hate her so totally so much you don't believe that oO), Bellatrix (yes, actually I like her, but when she kills Sirius I would like to turn her neck), Rita Skeeter (>.

    Have you heard the audio books? If so: how do you like them?
    No I did not. Hmjaa so once I started to hear the 6th part, but fell asleep again and again xDD

    Would you like more books that are set in the world?
    Yes, in any case! * _ * I still see myself as the biggest HP freak in the world, nech. ^^

    What do you think of the films?
    Well, my mother always thinks I could play along (would be great, nech ^^)
    I love them as much as the books * - *

    How do you like the cast?
    You couldn't have been better ^^
    Well ... Except maybe Cedric Diggory's. Ceddel is played by Robert Pattinson & when I saw him for the first time I asked myself what Edward Cullen (Twilight) was doing in Harry Potter ?! Though Pattinson plays him well, maybe someone else would have done it too ^^

    How do you like the changes compared to the books?
    Not bad. Sometimes you are annoyed or surprised about the changes, but the films are still very good ^^

    What was your favorite movie? Which less?
    I like them all ^^
    But least of all I like (at least I think) part 7.1, because they are there in the ministry. And that's just embarrassing there ^^

    How did you get Harry Potter?
    Well, about my family. ^^
    My mother, my uncle and my grandpa have read the books too, and now they are on my shelf * - *

    What do you think of the world?
    I am in love. them, no doubt!
    Hogsmead, Hogwarts, the Ministry of Magic, Malfoy's Manor, the Burrow, 12 Grimmauld Place, the Howling Shack, and so on * ______ *
    In all honesty: WHY? Why can't I live there

    Would you like to be a wizard?
    Yes, in any case!
    Just think about it: Apparating & Disapparating, being an Animagus (* - *), being able to let things fly and much, much more * ______________ *

    Which house would you like to come to?
    Um ... I don't know?
    So I'm brave, so I could come to Gryffindor.
    I'm intelligent (seriously -.-), so Ravenclaw would be an option too.
    Loyalty is also one of my strengths, which is why Hufflepuff is not absurd.
    Well, I'm not pure blood, but neither is Harry and he could have come to Slytherin too. I'm also cunning, so I could find my place in the ranks there too ^^
    I don't want to advertise, but if you're big fans, take a look here: Pottermore * - *

    How do you think the classes at other magic schools look like?
    I don't think so much differently.
    Okay, the French and Bulgarians are quite different in character, so they are probably brought up differently there, but the subjects should be the same: 33

    Which beings do you find particularly fascinating?
    Hippogriff, dragons, werewolves, nifflers, giants and centaurs.
    They are sweet, mystical, elegant, mysterious, magical and ... mysterious ^^ 'And all mixed up: 33

    What would you have wished for more information about?
    About everything. ^^ Especially about Dumbledore!
    But also about goblins, centaurs, Hagrid and house-elves. * - *
