"To the Dark Lord,

I know I will be dead long before you read this but I want you to know that it was I who discovered your secret. I have stolen the real horcrux and intend to destroy it as soon as I can. I face death in the hope that when you meet your match you will be mortal once more.”

Sprectrespecs were large, colourful spectacles that were given away free in an issue of The Quibbler in 1996. They were described as making their wearer look like a “demented, multicoloured owl.” They make wrackspurts, (invisible creatures that floats through one’s ears causing their brain to go fuzzy), visible to the wizarding eye, according to Luna Lovegood.



Well I’m off to kill a spider. Wish me luck.

SNAPE WEEK | Day 1: Favourite Quote

Snape’s breathing was shallow. “Her boy survives,” said Dumbledore. With a tiny jerk of the head, Snape seemed to flick off an irksome fly. “Her son lives. He has her eyes, precisely her eyes. You remember the shape and color of Lily Evans’s eyes, I am sure?” “DON’T!” bellowed Snape. “Gone…dead…” “Is this remorse, Severus?” “I wish…I wish I were dead…”

Maybe Neville and definitely Draco.



fig 1- a guide to reading tea leaves accompanied by a tea cup. 

TASSEOGRAPHY is a type of divination where a witch or wizard predicts one’s future by interpreting the tea leaves. Witches and wizards in the East read tea leaves centuries before Western witches and wizards.  Western magical folk often read splatters of wax, lead or another molten fortune telling medium, and tea was not regularly used as a fortune telling medium until the seventeenth century, when tea was introduced by Dutch traders. Tasseography is a method used mostly by witches, wizards and even muggles, all of whom are not seers. Instead, they predict the future by interpreting the symbols left in the tea cup. According to the textbook Unfogging the Future by Cassandra Vablatsky the method of reading tea leafs is as follows:

After a cup of tea has been poured, without using a tea strainer, the tea is drunk or poured away. The cup should then be shaken well and any remaining liquid drained off in the saucer. The diviner now looks at the pattern of tea leaves in the cup and allows the imagination to play around [with] the shapes suggested by them. They might look like a letter, a heart shape, or a ring. These shapes are then interpreted intuitively or by means of a fairly standard system of symbolism, such as: snake (enmity or falsehood), spade (good fortune through industry), mountain (journey of hindrance), or house (change, success). 

Divination is offered at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from third year on, and Tasseography plays a large role in the studies of every Divination student and master of Divination alike.
