Remus thought about who he could approach to become Harry’s healer.
Most people who had been cool to him before including Angelina apologized for believing he had entered himself even after he had said he didn’t. He was congratulated not just on his performance with the dragon but also on his ballsy speech in the Great Hall beforehand.

That was the year that spawned what is widely regarded as the worst fan fiction ever, My Immortal. It hit all the marks of a bad fan fiction: Also Snape was a Japanese-speaking teacher named Proffesor Sinister. So why did it gain such an immense following?
There are two kinds of carbs simple and complex.
A fan imitates Harry casting the Lumos spell Pottermania is an informal term first used around describing the craze Harry Potter fans have had over the series. A Bridal Guide featured two real weddings soon before the release of the final movie, which quickly spread through the fandom via Facebook , Twitter , and Tumblr. In the story, the protagonist Andrea Sachs is ordered to retrieve two copies of the next installment in the series for her boss’s twins before they are published so that they can be privately flown to France, where the twins and their mother are on holiday.
Rowling has an open relationship with her fan base, and since periodically hands out a “fan site award” on her official web site. The first was Godric’s Hollow;  for some time however, the site’s domain name was occupied by advertisers and its content was lost  and there is no further record on Rowling’s site that Godric’s Hollow ever received the award,  although in the website came back online again albeit with a lot of content missing.
The next site was the Harry Potter Lexicon , an online encyclopedia Rowling has admitted to visiting while writing away from home rather than buying a copy of her books in a store. She called it “for the dangerously obsessive; my natural home. Rowling wrote when giving the award, “It’s high time I paid homage to the mighty MuggleNet,” and listed all the features she loved, including “the pretty-much-exhaustive information on all books and films. In Rowling’s words, “it is about the worst kept secret on this website that I am a huge fan of The Leaky Cauldron,” which she calls a “wonderfully well designed mine of accurate information on all things Harry Potter.

Just when it looked as though Pottermania was subsiding after the final installment of Deathly Hallows in , last June it was suddenly announced that Rowling was going to add to the franchise in a theatrical way.
Harry Potter and The Cursed Child will form the “eighth story in the Harry Potter series and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage “. In other words, the saga continues… When will all be revealed, and what do we know about the show so far? Expect a red carpet affair to out-dazzle even Leicester Square movie premieres — especially as the theatre was bedecked with Cursed Child paraphernalia three months before the show’s official opening: In a video released by the production, director John Tiffany explained that “the good while” between the preview performances and the main opening was to have an audience to help the show become a work-in progress.
For those fans who managed to get preview performance tickets, this is possibly even better news. Did you say there was a Part II? The creative team have been sworn to secrecy but what with the need for teasers and the additional prospect of public dress-rehearsals in May, those involved may not be able to keep a lid on Potter-data, let alone Potter-hysteria, as the countdown intensifies.

This lack of care largely shaped Severus’s bitter disposition and cruel behaviour later in his life.
Severus grew up at Spinner’s End , a shabby suburb of Cokeworth.
