Pottermore ‘Real Fun Community Elements’

pottermore_website_1_510


Pottermore EW review: While it won’t let you apparate or play Quidditch (there are leagues for that already), J.K. Rowling’s new interactive website Pottermore will at least let you experience some of the fun of living in the world of Harry Potter. It’s still in beta and doesn’t open to the general public until October, but Pottermore is rolling out early access to the one million fans who qualified for it, and we were lucky enough to get an account..

For those who were worried that this would be just the skeletal frame of a game used to sell audiobooks or ebooks or plush sorting hats or whatever: it’s not. Even though the site is currently limited to material relating to the first book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, there’s still more than enough to make your entire afternoon disappear like a temporus suckus spell. You begin your journey by going through various interactive tableaux representing scenes from the book: the arrival of the Hogwarts letters, platform 9 3/4, Diagon Alley..

The real fun comes with the community elements. Once you’re sorted into a house, we got Ravenclaw because we’re smart and boring, you’ll be able to interact with your fellow housemates via a number of activities. Individuals can earn house points in the site-wide House Cup, and you can even engage in a wizard’s duel using your customized wand and the spells you have learned. If potions are more your thing, you can buy all the bezoars and flobberworm mucus you need at Diagon Alley and whip up a batch or two in your cauldron, but don’t overspend or else you’ll find your Gringotts vault empty.

    You can always ask someone here to reduce it to under 50. It’s not that hard to do, i just don’t have photoshop.

    “People need to stop being so fucking scared of rejection. People seem to think that rejection is like the worst thing ever, but it’s not, like you could get fucking AIDS. You cannot go through your life scared of like being rejected by the opposite sex, or the same sex depending on what you like. You need to see your potentials as like a job interview. You go in, you lay out what you have to offer on the table, if they like it they’ll hire you, if not you leave & find another job. And this goes to everyone okay, it is not just a guy’s job to go after the girl. If women think they can run for president, go after corporate jobs and do everything a man can, then why can’t your ass go after the guy. GO AFTER WHAT YOU WANT! There is nothing more annoying than having a friend with a crush who does nothing about the crush and who has this mentality that they’re gonna be forever alone. Well duh, bitch, you’re gonna be forever alone because all you do is Facebook stalk him in the fucking corner. If you like somebody, fucking tell them. You don’t even have to tell them in person. Send them a text message, send them a Facebook message but do not write in their fucking honesty box. Just be yourself, be honest, be real and be fearless because you’ll never know who will appreciate that.”
