EXPECTO PATRONUM!

JK Rowling is pleased to announce that as of today you can officially discover your patronus by taking a special quiz* on the official Harry Potter website, Pottermore! For many fans, this experience is a dream come true, but for others, the potential symbolism behind the animal they've conjured isn't quite the right fit.

What will your happiest thought produce?

*As with the other sorting ceremonies on Pottermore, you will need an account to acquire your highly scientific results.

New Potter Wizard School Info

J.K. Rowling has recently released some information on international wizarding schools. We already knew a fair amount about Durmstrang and Beauxbatons. But she also discusses Mahoutokoro, the Japanese school that actually has day students; Uagadou, the African school carved out of a mountainside; and Castelobruxo, the Brazilian home of Bill Weasley's ear-shrivelling penpal. She gives no information about Ilvermorny, the "North American" school. (There is not even a mention of the Salem Witches' Institute.)

Miniature Hogwarts

Sally Wallace creates highly detailed miniature dollhouses, including several from the Harry Potter films (Olivander's wand shop & Honeydukes, Hogwarts, The Stairs). Via. Warning, every single annoying web 0.9 trick in the book is employed somewhere on this site, including but not limited to: embedded midi files, that java fake reflecting water deal, virtual exploding fireworks, etc. ugh.
