Lumos Maxima!

Potterheads, rejoice! Here’s another Harry Potter post. I wanted to throw some light on some lesser known HP facts, ergo, Lumos Maxima. Hope you like it πŸ™‚

1. 
 If you’re a passionate HP fan, you’ll know that deatheaters cannot conjure a patronus. Severus Snape is the only one who could. His patronus is a doe, the same as Lily Potter’s, since he was deeply in love with Lily. Voldemort couldn’t produce a patronus because he didn’t have a single happy memory.

2.

 ‘Expecto Patronum’ literally means “I await a guardian” in Latin.

JK Rowling drew a fantastic parallel to the story of the three brothers from Beedle the Bard in Deathly Hallows. Voldemort is the first brother who died for power, Snape is the brother who died for true love and Harry is the brother who greeted death as an old friend.

After Fred’s death, George was never able to conjure a patronus again. How heartbreakingly sad!

8. The Marauders died in reverse order from how they were named on the map – Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs.
9. Here’s something to chew on – JK Rowling created seven horcruxes of her own – her seven books, in which she’ll live forever!
10. And finally, something which I am super-thrilled about -the new Harry Potter prequel – ‘Fantastic Beasts and where to Find them’. I saw the trailer and I cannot wait. It’s going to be along wait, though – till Nov 2016! But I find consolation in the fact that it’s going to be a trilogy! So three times sweeter πŸ™‚ If you haven’t seen the trailer already, here it is –
Why do I get the feeling like the Harry Potter series was just the tip of the iceberg? We are going to see lots more from the wizarding world, it’s nowhere near the end. After all, “I open at the close”, right?.
