    Easy. A wizard goes to Hogwarts, develops an interest in architecture, decides the wizarding world isn't for him and works as an architect in a primarily Muggle setting. His old school inspires...

    Very true, since, you know, magical castle and all. The fact that the tunnel to the Chamber opened from a sink gives me pause though. I mean, how do you have a sink without indoor plumbing? A...

    But the thing is, it would have to. The fact that an original, Founder-built room (the Chamber of Secrets) is linked to something so specific as the second-floor girls' bathroom without anyone...

    Hi Ariana!

    Those are indeed areas of history that are covered quite exhaustively. We also tend to study (at least in my part of the country) the pioneer/homesteading days, starting just before...

    I'm pretty laid back about my hair too, actually, but I have to get it cut at least once every eight months or so or it goes totally crazy. I have very similar hair to Hermione (wavy and bushy, and...

    And I agree, if it was old-fashioned to the point of not needing batteries. However, Colin's camera is described as being a normal Muggle camera of the early nineties (CoS 96, US hardback). That...
