Flag Quiz

I just added a little quiz to the bottom of the page, you have to guess the country's flag. Lotsa fun...but I suck at it. :( Sad pandas.

PotterCast #73: PotterCast Goes to FAO Schwartz


And I mean wow. This episode planted some very new, very interesting thoughts in my head, what with an excellent interview with Francisca Solar, author of Harry Potter fanfic and a new novel (written in Spanish) that she is currently trying to get translated into English, and a Canon Conundrums (yes!) about Emmeline Vance and Amelia Bones. I really liked Sue's idea that Amelia could be an heir to Hufflepuff, but I also think it could be plausible that Vance is a descendant of Ravenclaw.

Oh well, THAT's not the big news today. I was in hysterics after I heard this, let me tell you, but THIS BLOG was quoted on PotterCast! *random squeeing* Yes, I was quite proud of myself, I always knew my head hurting quote would be popular. *sneezes something about "not expecting it at all"*

Anyway, some great theories were said, and it was probably THE BEST episode ever. ;)

74, here we come!

PotterCast # 72: The Ultra Megazord Mailbag Edition

What a great episode.

What else can I say? This probably has to be the best PotterCast episode I've listened to EVER. One gigantic mailbag segment filled the hour with lots of perplexing theories, including a very significant one about Godric's Hollow...

The theory states that Harry is the person who was outside his parents' house on the night of their deaths. This is because, on Halloween of (Oh my God, what year was it?) 1997, I think, Harry used a time-turner to return to the night of his parents' demise. He was the one who informed Dumbledore to go find baby Harry at the house.

Our dear Sue then proceeded to add another bit to the theory by explaining why Snape feels such hatred for Harry: because Snape knew of this older Harry coming to the past before Harry himself knew it, and so hated having to keep the secret.

This also explains why Dumbledore allowed Harry to do all those dangerous things at Hogwarts. Because he knew that Harry would be all right, that he wouldn't die, because he had seen seventeen-year-old Harry in the past.

Well, my head now officially hates PotterCast for making it hurt so badly. That should be their new slogan: "PotterCast: Making people get migranes since 2005!" Lol, can't wait for 73.

Check out for more blogs about the Harry Potter convention Lumos!

A show called MuggleCast

Well, I finally got around to downloading MuggleCast, and I have to say that I was wrong: while PotterCast is definitely better (sorry MuggleCast), MuggleCast is interesting and informative too. I've listened to a grand total of two MuggleCast episodes, and I must say I thouroughly enjoyed both of them. Keep 'em coming!

We've changed

I thought the "Brett's Harry Potter Fan Blog" title was a little bit boring, so I completely revamped the template with Ravenclaw colors! The title has now changed, as well, and I'd like to welcome you to Ravenclaw Common-room!

As well I would also like to thank PotterCast for giving us another incredible episode. I haven't been updating for each episode in the past few weeks, and that's because I've been VERY busy chatting with other fans on the Leaky Lounge about the title.

Ravenclaw through and through!

Well, I had always said I was in Ravenclaw, but I'd never actually taken a Sorting Hat test to confirm that.

Well, let me tell you, I took a test. Here is the result:

The sorting hat says that I belong in Ravenclaw!


Said Ravenclaw, "We'll teach those whose intelligence is surest."

Ravenclaw students tend to be clever, witty, intelligent, and knowledgeable.
Notable residents include Cho Chang and Padma Patil (objects of Harry and Ron's affections), and Luna Lovegood (daughter of The Quibbler magazine's editor).

Take the most scientific Harry Potter
ever created.

Get Sorted Now!

My scores were:

Gryffindor: 62

Ravenclaw: 94

Hufflepuff: 86

Slytherin: 61

I guess I was right, then. :)
