  2. Summary

    What are you supposed to do when your old best friend transfers to your school just when you thought you were finally okay with him not being there? Well, honestly? Scott's not sure. Someone really should've written a "how to" guide for situations like this one, if you ask him. But since no one has, he'll just have to make it up as he goes.

    Summary

    Whether or not we “ship” Harry and Snape as a romantic couple, theirs is the crucial relationship in canon. Only when they overcome their mutual hatred and recognize love in one another can Voldemort be defeated.

    Summary

    What does the Harry Potter series say about mothering? Lily’s self-sacrifice was magic because it was universal: any mother would die to protect her child. But what about the rest of us -- the caretakers who do the daily drudgework of keeping a child alive, and keeping the self alive for the child? Whether it’s about Snape protecting an enemy’s son, Petunia and her unwanted nephew, or a suicidally depressed single mother, Rowling permeates her series with stories about how it feels to be the Mother Who Lived.

    Dumbledore’s priority was to keep people alive, even if imprisoned. Why? If we read the child in the cupboard -- or the soul fragment taking refuge in a scar – or the dream of becoming a writer -- as the life force in times of duress, surviving until it’s safe to emerge for a second chance – we see the courage of the suicidal mother recognizing that even in her destitution, writing her story was the only way to stay strong enough to parent her baby.

    For everyone who has ever wondered if what they’ve done for their child can possibly be enough, the series says: Look at your child. Nourish the child through your gaze. And see who you become in their eyes.

    Summary

    Will my 7-year-old love the Potter books as I do? Is she old enough to read them all? To watch the movies? Will they scare her? Will she understand the death and love themes? Will she think Snape good or evil? What do I tell her about Harry's use of the Unforgivables, bullying, and the difference between Harry and Voldemort?

    Summary

    To train as an Unspeakable, a witch or wizard must understand several cryptic points left unexplained in the books. These mysteries and more will be revealed: What magic did Lily invoke to protect Harry? What did Tom Riddle do to those children from the orphanage? What did Voldemort do to get his rudimentary body in book 4? Why did the Elder Wand choose Draco and Harry rather than Voldemort? What curse did Molly Weasley use on Bellatrix Lestrange? What does it mean that the Sword of Gryffindor presents itself to any true Gryffindor?

    Lucius Malfoy’s lapdog. Draco’s favorite teacher. Narcissa’s bonded co-conspirator against the Dark Lord. What is Snape’s relationship to the Malfoys? Through considering plot points such as Snape’s sorting, Draco’s Defense Against the Dark Arts training, and Snape’s Unbreakable Vow with Narcissa, we examine Snape’s interactions with this complex family. Whether they oppose Snape, support him, or only think they support him, their friendship is a source of life-or-death strength to them all.
