I’ve just posted the last essays that will be published before Deathly Hallows, and they should definitely keep our Pensieve humming! An active LiveJournaler, Felicity, has allowed the Lexicon to publish three essays setting forth her theories on Horcruxes: one about the Horcrux described as “Something of Ravenclaw’s or Gryffindor’s,” another about the Hufflepuff Cup, and a third about Nagini. Because the essays make predictions about Horcruxes and presumably (!) Deathly Hallows will reveal all about about them, I’ve rushed the essays into print, so to speak, in the interest of getting them out there, and will be updating the essays through the evening with links to Lexicon sources as indicated.
A new Lexicon contributor, D.B. Fwoopersong, has some theories about just what happened the night Snape supposedly made that Unbreakable Vow . . . enjoy!
Here’s a bonbon for all you shippers out there — a wicked fun and wildly speculative essay about potential relationships in the Marauder Era, by new Lexicon contributor hpboy13. Enjoy!
It’s been awhile, but I have a couple of new essays posted, authored by a regular contributor, Ravenclaw Rambler. He’s got some ideas about the location of Platform Nine-and-Three-Quarters, as well as some thoughts on “muggle magic.”
Keep checking back for new essays all this week, as I have a backlog I am trying desperately to clear before the release of Deathly Hallows; we Lexicon staffers are going to be mighty busy updating the Lexicon in the days and weeks after Deathly Hallows comes out!
I’ve just posted an essay by Quentin Lowagie, webmaster of the Harry Potter Lexicon counterpart in French, L’EncyclopÃ©die Harry Potter. Quentin visited London last year, took some fabulous pictures of London sights related to the world of Harry Potter . . . et voilÃ , je vous prÃ©sente Harry Potter in London: Platform Nine and Three-Quarters, the Leaky Cauldron, etc.Â Enjoy!
I know it’s been awhile, but I have finally posted another new essay. This one is from astronomer and past Lexicon contributor Mike Weinstein: Astronomy in the Harry Potter Series. Enjoy!
Here’s a new essay speculating on the whereabouts of yet another iconic Harry Potter locationÂ from the prolific and entertaining Ravenclaw Rambler: In Search of . . . The Burrow.
Greetings on T-167 days and counting until Book 7 publication! I have an essay for any math wonks out there (that’s “maths” to Jo and others in the U.K.): check out our new essay on Wizard Money from a fan in Russia, Anton Generalov aka â€œXAHrOBEPâ€ (pronounced â€œHangoverâ€).
. . . and here’s another essay by Ravenclaw Rambler, this one going In Search of . . . the Hut-on-The-Rock. Enjoy!Â
