Soon the Basilisk will come and then the school will really be in trouble. At least this one wasn't written in cat blood though.

A group of college students had the real-life Professor Snape.

His name was Henry Lloyd Snape, and while he didn't wield a wand—far as we know— fawn after Lily Potter, or make a mad magical potion; he did claim his expertise in the field of Chemistry. So, he was pretty much the Half Blood Prince. Check him out, pictured in the center, below.

In The Irish Times, the real-life Professor Snape is described as uncannily lenient towards a dark but charismatic disposition, much like the demeanor of Severus as played by Alan Rickman in the 'Harry Potter' flicks.

What gets the bit between the teeth on the connection between Henry Lloyd and JK's Severus Snape, is Rodger's discovery of a recent lecture that was titled 'The Philosopher of Stone.' This immediately brings to mind the title of the first 'Harry Potter' book, 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.'

As a final resounding note we'll add that Henry Lloyd taught at Aberystwyth University, an old college building that had Gothic spires and turrets eerily similar to Hogwarts.

It helps to actually attend class instead of going off on ill-advised adventures with your friends. If you think about it, Harry was really a terrible student.

If the wizarding gene is dominant, as J.K. Rowling says in her famous series of Harry Potter books, then how can a wizard be born to muggle parents (non-magical people)? And how can there be squibs (non-magical people born into wizarding lines)?

It seems these baffling genetic questions have finally been answered, thanks to Andrea Klenotiz, a biology student at the University of Delaware.

In a six-page paper, which she sent to Rowling, Klenotiz outlines how the wizarding gene works and even explains why some witches and wizards are more powerful than others.

Teacher Welcomes Back Students With Harry Potter Themed Classroom


Oklahoma City school teacher, Stephanie Stephens really knew how to welcome her students, her entire classroom is Harry Potter themed. Focusing on things from The Sorcerer's Stone, Stephens will be making the entire school year as magical as Hogwarts for her eighth-grade special needs class. Just like Harry, Ron and Hermione, her class will earn points for each of their respective 'Houses'.

"Once the house points jar fills up they get a class reward. My students mean the world to me and I hope my enthusiasm for reading will transfer to each and every one of my kids."

Keep your fingers crossed for Hufflepuff. They deserve a win.
