Miserable Harry transforms to be a savior

English: Created by modifying this image Itali...

Harry potter is considered to be a miserable and lonely boy who’s been ignored and unwanted by his relatives who took care of him since his parents died. He was compelled to live under the cupboards, under the stairs, forced to wear his cousin’s clothes and sent to the neighbor’s while the rest of the family is having a good time. This shows how miserable life he was living with his guardians.

 

When Harry was entering age 11, his world got up-side-down. A giant, Hagrid informs him that he was a wizard as his parents were. Also, he was going to be attending the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Afterwards, he too learnt that he was a hero in the Wizardry world. When he was a little boy, his parents were killed by the evil Lord Voldemort and also tried to kill him too. But amazingly, he survived and reputedly killed the evil Lord in the process.

 

When Harry hears all this from Hagrid, he doesn’t know what to think. And with his joyful heart, he joined the school in September. He quickly became friend with a boy named Ron Weasley. The two of them break tons of school rules when they attacked a troll and saved one of his friends named Hermione Granger. The three of them became inseparable from each other. Harry used to participate in the weekly Quidditch. He was the youngest participant in Quidditch over the centuries where participants show their extraordinary wizardry skills.

 

As time passes, the three friends came to know about a valuable stone, a Sorcerer’s Stone, which is being hidden in the school. They tried to stop one of the professors who has been acting as if he was trying to steal it. In order to save it he had to go one on one with the evil Lord Voldemort. Harry was nearly killed by the evil Lord, but the headmaster, Dumbledore arrives and saves him from the disaster. Eventually, the school session ends and the three friends were honored for their service to the school.

 

Hence, a miserable boy who used to be conned by the guardians saved the secret Sorcerrer’s stone from being stolen from the school. With his extraordinary wizardry he became the savior of the secret stone.

Spellbound for Starters: Survive at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

I hear there is a vacancy (again!) for the job of professor of “Defence against the Dark Arts”. And if you aren’t Harry Potter, I would recommend that you brush up on your spells. Good luck- and remember you read it all here!

  1. Wingardium Leviosa (it’s Leh-Vee-Ohhh-Sa, not Leh-Vee-Oh-Saaa)

Point your wand at any object and rotate your wrist with a flourish. You will cause the object to levitate. But beware, as saying “Wingaardleviosah” will make the object explode in your face.

  1. Expelliarmus (Ecks-Pelly-Arm-Us)

It is used to disarm your opponent, especially during a duel. If timed correctly, you can catch your opponent’s wand. Its intensity can be varied, according to your opponent’s counter curse. (It defeated both The Dark Lord and Gilderoy Lockhart, so, yeah.)

  1. Riddikulus (Rid-dik–ul-oos)

The castle probably still has Dark Forces operating- and therefore, some Boggarts too. As you know, they take the form of the thing you fear most. Counter Boggarts using ‘Riddikulus’ charm- and think of something that makes you laugh. The hitherto petrifying Boggart becomes the amusing thing, rendering it, RIDDIKULUS! (I said that in Remus’ voice).

  1. Alohamora (Aloha-Morah)

From words meaning “Thief’s friend”, this is one of the most basic spells required for students in Hogwarts to disobey rules (read: become living legends). It is one of those badass spells that makes things easier. It unlocks locked doors, rooms, books etc., unless the object is protected by an anti- Alohamora charm.

  1. Accio (Ax-Eeyo)

This is a spell that summons, and can be useful in a lot of situations. But yes, it takes away from the “I left my assignment in the common room” excuse. It has been used many times, both successfully and not.

 

  1. Stupefy (Stew-Peh-Faai)

This spell temporarily stuns your opponent into a state of inaction. It can be reversed; it can also be intensified by use of Stupefy Duo, an exponentially more powerful version. It can be defensive or offensive and you can use it to buy you time while fighting enemies.

  1. Petrificus Totalus (Petrificus-Totalus- thank you, Sherlock!)

This incantation freezes the object on which it is cast. It is another tactic to buy oneself some time (as Hermione Granger knows so well).

  1. Reducto (Re- duck-toe)

This spell causes any solid object to explode into smithereens. It is amusing to use on balloons, especially around unsuspecting victims. It can create diversions and buy you time, but it’s not a really classy way to overcome an obstacle.

  1. Sectum Sempra (come on, you can say it right!)

This spell, a brainchild of the half-blood prince, is deceptively lethal. It causes lacerations on the victim’s body. If wounds are left untreated, death could result from severe blood loss. This spell also ‘severs’ appendages. Get it? Not to be used, except under severe provocation (unless you’re a blonde haired, green eyed Slytherin with a surname that rhymes with “Dalfoy”. Then, you’ll use it because you can.)

  1. Expecto Patronum (Expecto-putt-roe-num)

This spell conjures a Patronus, powerful energy in animal form, appearing to be made of light. It is a defence against a Dementor’s kiss, which drains the recipient of all joy and vitality. The strength of the Patronus called up by a wizard is directly proportionate to the power of the wizard.

You are now equipped to protect yourself from the Powers That Be. But do visit us often so you can hone your skills of witchcraft and wizardry and your knowledge of the wonderful world of Hogwarts.
