You think you know about Harry Potter? I know about Harry Potter. You’ve told me everything I’ll ever need to know about the kid, up to the end of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. I know that he’s
alive, he’s young, he’s popular and, apparently, he’s a hero. I know all about his friends, teachers, and enemies.
By July 22nd, I’ll know nearly everything about Book 7, Harry Potter and the Deathly
Hallows. Whether the wizard kid makes it, or if one of his friends dies. Or, if he finds all those Horcrux thingies and takes care of that Voldemort guy and saves the world.
But, I want to know more. I want you to think about the gadgets he uses, the brooms he rides, the spells he casts, the books he reads, and the potions he studies. After that, you can get into the obscure stuff, like the Hair-Thickening Charm,
or a Snargaluff stump.
If you think of something really obscure, you can even add it to my database, but chances are I already know. ; )
