Harry Potter is da bomb, am I right? Actually, you don’t need to answer that. I know I’m right because this book series/movie series/magical lifestyle has kept our hearts happy for over two decades, and we don’t quite know how to thank ol’ Joanne for that. With her genius brain and a publisher who (finally) gave her the chance to bring magic into the world, we have been able to learn everything there is to learn about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. We’ve come to understand the intricacies of spells, wizarding law, magical creatures, and more. In short, Hazza P would totally be our Mastermind topic.
While we still shed a tear every single day because the book and movie series is over, it’s safe to say that Harry and the gang haven’t really gone. A family of Potterheads keeps the magic alive, and J.K Rowling herself is committed to bringing us more and more information about our favorite wizards. Every so often, she blesses our screens with new facts and secrets that quite literally blow our minds. She ties up loose ends, she answers questions, and she even apologizes for some of her actions on the page. We really don’t know what we would do without her. Yuh-huh, we now know more about Potter than ever before – and we’re in two minds about this. Some of these facts are incredibly heartbreaking, others are jaw-dropping-WTF-worthy, while others will probably make you kinda angry. Sorry about that.
Floo Powder still remains a mystery
Although we will probably never get the chance to see Diagon Alley in all of its glory (we’re totes not bitter or anything), we know more about these stores than we do those in the muggle world. Yep, we know that Floo Powder will cost you just two Sickles a scoop – but we don’t actually know anything about who makes it.
This powder was originally made by Ignatia Wildsmith, who invented the magical substance in the 13th Century. Since then, witches and wizards have been able to buy it in Diagon Alley, but the formula and the person in charge of production still remains a mystery.
