Big D

“Cool name, but you’ll always be Ickle Diddykins to me.”

With some hard dieting and a talent for punching people, Dudders has grown up to become the junior heavyweight inter-school boxing champ of the South East, and the terror of Little Whinging.

The Dursleys

“Mr. and Mrs. Dursley, of number four Privet Drive, were proud to say that they were perfectly normal, thank you very much.”

Harry’s Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon and their baby angel, Dudley. The Dursleys are the biggest bunch of muggles you’ll ever lay eyes on, and want nothing more than to live in bland suburban normality at Number 4, Privet Drive. Unfortunately for them, their good-for-nothing nephew keeps crashing flying cars, inflating aunts and bringing in house elves. What will the neighbours think?

The Next Generation of Malfoys

“So that’s little Scorpius.”

Draco, Astoria and their little pride and joy, Scorpius Hyperion. The bloodline has continued with Draco marrying into another of the “Sacred Twenty-Eight” pureblood families.

Dolores Umbridge

“What Cornelius doesn’t know won’t hurt him.”

Dolores Jane Umbridge is a power-hungry Ministry of Magic official. Deeply prejudiced, controlling and sadistic, Umbridge is a nightmare in pink bows, frills and flounces. Her hobbies include collecting the ‘Frolicsome Feline’ ornamental plate range and inventing instruments of torture.

Professor Slughorn

“To friendship! To generosity! To ten Galleons a hair!”

Professor H. E. F. Slughorn enjoys his “creature comforts”, from velvet smoking jackets to crystallised pineapple. He was (reluctantly) winkled out of retirement to resume his post as Potions Master at Hogwarts. “Old Sluggy” is a very influential teacher – he cherry-picks particularly bright or talented students for his Slug Club at Hogwarts, and is always happy to give a leg-up to his favourites.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I have taken the liberty of arranging this little surprise for you all…

To celebrate Lockhart’s favourite holiday, I’ll be posting new Harry Potter couples all month. The only question is who would you like?

Rare few Ravenclaws

Or yet in wise old Ravenclaw,
If you’ve a ready mind,
Where those of wit & learning
Will always find their kind.

Padma Patil.

Handful of Hufflepuffs

You might belong in Hufflepuff,
Where they are just & loyal,
Those patient Hufflepuffs are true
And unafraid of toil.

Ernie Macmillan, Hannah Abbott, Susan Bones and Justin Finch-Fletchley.

Slytherin Squad

Or perhaps in Slytherin
You’ll make your real friends,
Those cunning folks use any means
To achieve their ends.

Draco Malfoy, Pansy Parkinson, Vincent Crabbe, Gregory Goyle, Blaise Zabini and Millicent Bulstrode.

Gryffindor Gang

You might belong in Gryffindor,
Where dwell the brave at heart,
Their daring, nerve & chivalry
Set Gryffindors apart.

Neville Longbottom, Lavender Brown, Parvati Patil, Dean Thomas and Seamus Finnigan.

Tina Goldstein

“Mr. Scamander, do you know anything about the wizarding community in America?”

A self-styled super sleuth and sometime auror, Tina gets embroiled in adventures with Newt Scamander. Tina works in the magical law enforcement branch of MACUSA. Even when she’s suspended from the investigative team, she can’t resist doing a little bit of undercover work of her own…

Jacob Kowalski

“I’m the only one like me.”

Let’s all give a very warm welcome to the first non-magical person to make it on to the blog! Jacob is a No-Maj who has a bit of a history of getting inadvertently swept into the magical world. He’s friendly, big-hearted (and just big), with pie in the sky dreams of opening his own bakery in Brooklyn, NYC.
