Sorry if this post doesn't belong here, but I don't know where else to put it. I am creating a wikia for one of my favorite tv shows, and I don't know how to make custom infobox templates for characters? Can anyone here help me? I've tried editing default infboxes, but can't seem to get it to work, and copy and paste from other wikis isn't working either. I appreciate any help.Read more >
Fanfiction's just a way for people to attempt to write while borrowing others ideas. It can work out right, yes. Most of the times it doesn't, because most fanfiction writers (12 year old girls) don't strive to become actual writers.
The worst of it is when folks write with a script format, but they're obviously not trying to write a script or any sort of play. They're just trying to be lazy and that bugs me.
Fanfiction is good for begining writers, but it's not something that one should keep doing if they want to improve. Self-creation is the key to opening the worlds of writing. To unlock the secrets of the inner mind, and perhaps, write the very next Harry Potter.
Superficially speaking, as Harry Potter has already been written.Read more >

My name is Calvin Rankin and I am a wizard. I was born on April 2nd 1997. I was born to Scott and Evie Rankin. When I turned 7 strange things started to happen. At night I would sometimes have nightmares and I would wake up from a loud thud to find several objects either fallen over or sometimes they would be hovering. This happened on several occasions and I kept it from my parents. Until I turned 8. On the morning of my eighth birthday I showed them my power. After seeing me levitate a chair they seemed to realize what it meant. They went on to say that my wizard powers have formed and that they were both a witch and a wizard. We lived in South London. So they informed me that they were both magical as well and told me I would soon be ab…Read more >

You said what you wanted from the Harry Potter universe, and we curated a list of the top 5 choices! Where there wasn't consensus, Wikia staff chose arbitrarily. Although we can't give you anything from the list in real life, we agree that we would want all of these things! Check out the Harry Potter Wishlist below!
1. FireboltA Hogwarts acceptance letter deserves honorary mention because it barely missed being on the list by 1 vote! Happy holidays!
3. Invisibility Cloak
4. The Marauder's Map
I have this idea for a Harry Potter sequel series. Sometime after the ending of the eighth film (when everyone is now adults), a orphan muggle boy who live off the streets of London stumbled upon an magical relict. The mysterious item gets infused into his skin, granting him wizard powers. The wizarding world took an interest in him. When he turn 11, he is accepted to Hogwarts; the first muggle to ever to be accepted. Harry Potter can play a minor role in this, and his kids can go to school with the muggle boy. I've already come up with a name for him: "Jeremy Marx".
I'm just saying if that ever happens, I have a great idea who would in it.Read more >

I was just looking around, and realized that most of Sybill's predictions seem to have been correct. So I looked up the seer Cassandra, to see what I could find. It seems that in Greek mythology, Cassandra was cursed so that no one woud ever believe her predictions. Perhaps, this was handed down by generation and Sybill had the curse upon her. If this is true...PROPS to J.K Rowling for this brilliant link!Read more >

Hey, just wondering if the Avada Kedavra spell kills bacteria. And since the killing curse is blocked by a soul, then wouldn't kittens be excellent shields against it?

The story is going to be set in the wizarding world and will feature magical creatures and characters, some of which will be familiar to devoted Harry Potter fans. “Although it will be set in the worldwide community of witches and wizards where I was so happy for seventeen y…Read more >

A series about the childhood adventures of James and/or Lily

Our Time-Turner feature on the Harry Potter Wiki continues, thanks to the help of Hunnie Bunn.
Take a trip back into the history of the Harry Potter Wiki with Harry Potter Wiki:Time-Turner - Minerva McGonagall. This time around, we look back at the article as it was on August 6, 2007, about two years and a month after the Harry Potter Wiki was first founded. Things have come a long way since then, as Minerva McGonagall is now a thriving, featured article with numerous sections and, of course, the latest info from Pottermore. In fact, a while back, McGonagall's page was featured on Wikia as our choice for the best article on the wiki.
Looking back to 2007, while the page was much shorter, many of the basics were still in place, including some …Read more >
