Wir sind keine schlechten Menschen. Wir sind wie unser Emblem, die Schlange: geschickt, stark und häufig missverstanden.

But we're not bad people. We're like our emblem, the snake: sleek, powerful, and frequently misunderstood.

Unser Emblem ist der Adler, der weiter steigt, wo andere nicht mithalten; unsere Hausfarben sind Blau und Bronze und unser Gemeinschaftsraum befindet sich an der Spitze des Ravenclaw Turms, hinter einer Tür mit einem verzauberten Türklopfer. Durch die großen Fenster des runden Gemeinschaftsraums kann man auf das Schulgelände herab schauen: den See, den Verbotenen Wald, das Quidditch Feld und die Gewächshäuser. Kein anderes Haus hat so einen unglaublichen Ausblick.

Our emblem is the eagle, which soars where others cannot climb; our house colours are blue and bronze, and our common room is found at the top of Ravenclaw Tower, behind a door with an enchanted knocker. The arched windows set into the walls of our circular common room look down at the school grounds: the lake, the Forbidden Forest, the Quidditch pitch and the Herbology gardens. No other house in the school has such stunning views.

Sport ist ein wichtiges Schulfach, darum habe ich Quidditch so einen hohen Stellenwert in Hogwarts gegeben. Ich war immer schlecht in Sport, deshalb habe ich Harry ein Talent gegeben, dass ich selbst gerne gehabt hätte. Wer würde nicht gerne fliegen können?

Sport is a very important subject at school, that's why I gave Quidditch such an important place at Hogwarts. I was very bad in sports, so I gave Harry a talent I would really loved to have. Who wouldn't want to fly?

Am wichtigsten ist es, so viel wie möglich zu lesen. Dadurch erlangt man ein Verständnis, was gutes Schreiben ausmacht und erweitert seinen Wortschatz.

The most important thing is to read as much as you can, like I did. It will give you an understanding of what makes good writing and it will enlarge your vocabulary.

Once upon a time, there was a tiny country called Cornucopia, which had been ruled for centuries by a long line of fair-haired kings. The king at the time of which I write was called King Fred the Fearless. He'd announced the ‘Fearless’ bit himself, on the morning of his coronation, partly because it sounded nice with 'Fred', but also because he'd once managed to catch and kill a wasp all by himself, if you didn't count five footmen and the boot boy.

Es ist unmöglich ein fehlerfreies Leben zu führen. Außer wenn man so vorsichtig lebt, dass man gar nicht erst richtig gelebt hat - was der größte Fehler überhaupt wäre.

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all, in which case you have failed by default.

This exchange marked the beginning of Mr. Malfoy's long campaign to have me removed from my post as headmaster of Hogwarts, and of mine to have him removed from his position as Lord Voldemort's Favorite Death Eater. My response prompted several further letters from Mr. Malfoy, but as they consisted mainly of opprobrious remarks on my sanity, parentage, and hygiene, their relevance to this commentary is remote.

What must strike any intelligent witch or wizard on studying the so-called history of the Elder Wand is that every man who claims to have owned it has insisted that it is "unbeatable," when the known facts of its passage through many owners' hands demonstrate that has it not only been beaten hundreds of times, but that it also attracts trouble as Grumble the Grubby Goat attracted flies.

Zudem ertappte ich mich dabei, dass ich Handlungsstränge für zweitrangige Figuren entwickelte, die überflüssig waren wie ein Kropf. Schwieriger war es, mich von den Handlungslinien zu trennen, die ich für manche viel wichtigere Figuren entwickelt hatte, da sie um des großen Zugs der Erzählung willen geopfert werden mussten.

Although there is a lot of Christian imagery in the books. That's undeniable. But that's an allusion to a belief system in which I was raised.

If you need to tell your readers something...there are only two characters that you can put it convincingly into their dialogue. One is Hermione, the other is Dumbledore. In both cases you accept, it's plausible that they have, well Dumbledore knows pretty much everything anyway, but that Hermione has read it somewhere.

Unser Emblem ist der Dachs, ein Tier, das häufig unterschätzt wird, weil es zurückhaltend ist, aber sich, wenn es angegriffen wird, gegen viel größere Tiere verteidigen kann, sogar Wölfe. Unsere Hausfarben sind Gelb und Schwarz, und unser Gemeinschaftsraum befindet sich im selben Korridor wie die Schulküchen.

Our emblem is the badger, an animal that is often underestimated, because it lives quietly until attacked, but which, when provoked, can fight off animals much larger than itself, including wolves. Our house colours are yellow and black, and our common room lies one floor below the ground, on the same corridor as the kitchens.

Another cool thing about Ravenclaw is that our people are the most individual – some might even call them eccentrics. But geniuses are often out of step with ordinary folk, and unlike some other houses we could mention, we think you've got the right to wear what you like, believe what you want, and say what you feel. We aren't put off by people who march to a different tune; on the contrary, we value them!

Now, there are a few things you should know about Hufflepuff house. First of all, let's deal with a perennial myth about the place, which is that we're the least clever house. WRONG. Hufflepuff is certainly the least boastful house, but we've produced just as many brilliant witches and wizards as any other.

The entrance to the common room is concealed in a stack of large barrels in a nook on the right hand side of the kitchen corridor. Tap the barrel two from the bottom, middle of the second row, in the rhythm of "Helga Hufflepuff", and the lid will swing open. We are the only house at Hogwarts that also has a repelling device for would-be intruders. If the wrong lid is tapped, or if the rhythm of the tapping is wrong, the illegal entrant is doused in vinegar.

Hufflepuff house is haunted by the Fat Friar, who was executed because senior churchmen grew suspicious of his ability to cure the pox merely by poking peasants with a stick, and his ill-advised habit of pulling rabbits out of the communion cup. Though a genial character in general, the Fat Friar still resents the fact that he was never made a cardinal.

Gryffindor house is home to Nearly Headless Nick, who in life was Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington. Something of a snob, and a less accomplished wizard than he believed, Sir Nicholas lounged around the court of Henry VII in life, until his foolish attempt to beautify a lady-in-waiting by magic caused the unfortunate woman to sprout tusks. Sir Nicholas was stripped of his wand and inexpertly executed, leaving his head hanging off by a single flap of skin and sinew. He retains a feeling of inadequacy with regard to truly headless ghosts.
