Quick Potter ‘muggles’
If you’re gonna get a house by starting the roof and head out to film the boy wizard saga at the end, you will be good to have a look here
Aragog, Buckbeat Hogwarts, Hadgrid, Snape, Sirius, Hedwig, Kreacher are familiar names to those who have followed in these 14 years the saga of the most famous wizard from Merlin saga is now coming to an end on the big screen. But the Muggle (non-magical person) who does not know what Quidditch, what are the 12 uses of dragon’s blood and not know what a testral and decide to make one last visit to the magical world of Harry Potter is some things to consider. Let’s start with the basics.
The payment system. The coins are gold, silver and bronze, as in the Olympics. The gold are galleons, sickles, and Knuts silver, bronze. Seventeen silver Sickles are Galleon and twenty-nine Knuts equivalent to a sickle.
Transportation: Transportation is by definition the flight with a broom, but in the Arab and Persian rugs are more popular magic. A conveyance that we could use to avoid clogging the Apparat, (to appear) an advanced spell that says it allows a site to disappear and reappear in another instantly. In the city are more common flu powder that let you travel through the chimney. There are also the Portkey, common objects and worthless, pleased with the Portus spell when you touch that takes you to a preset. They are generally used to transport large groups. To enjoy it you need the authorization of the office Portkey, Magical Transportation Department of the Ministry of Magic. If you go out at night and not feel like flying or Apparate can take the Knight Bus (knight bus), led by Ernie Pyle and conductor Stanley Shunpike as sorcerers and rescue in times of trouble.
Food: It’s pretty much the same as the muggle world But There Are Some That Will interest you drinks, beer Such as butter (Butterbeer of Many recipes abound on the Internet That) or mead, cherry syrup and soda and rum grosella …
Sports: The main sport of wizards is quiditch, a kind of cross between hockey and soccer. It is played in teams of seven. At each end of the field (which is the size of a football stadium) there are three golden poles with hoops on the ends. This area is defended by a guardian (the equivalent of a goalkeeper), flying rings around your computer and stops the opponent’s shots. There are three hunters who chase a ball called Quaffle (bright red, like a soccer ball) and try to pass by one of the hoops to score the opposing team. They get ten points every time the Quaffle passes through a hoop. Two that are batterers. Its function is to prevent the bludgers (two identical balls, black, slightly smaller than the Quaffle and fairly aggressive) knocked down the broom to the players on his team. The last of the players is the search engine. His job is to catch the Snitch, a small ball and bright, the size of a large walnut and small silver wings. It is the most important of all and have to catch it before the take the other browser, because the game only ends when the Snitch is caught.
Spells. In the Potter world, magic spells are essential for survival, but we must differentiate to apply them properly and not turn into an owl to the neighbor or end with a pigtail. The spells are the basic spells like floating a Wingardium Leviosa pen or opening a door saying Alohomora. There are also the transfiguration or transformation (molecular alterations of an object, such as converting a teapot in a cage). And as Confundus advanced spells, used to distract or confuse, Expecto patronus to drive away the dementors, Obliviate to forget or Expeliarmus to disarm a magician. The spells are spells with a little black magic and are generally irritants, such as the ears Bailon (Twitchy Ears) or the opuggno, used to launch objetcos against a person. Curses are reserved for the worst kinds of magic. The best known are unforgivable curses. In the last two movies you will see them very often. They Cruciatus, Imperius and Avada Kedavra, punishable by years in prison in the prison of Azkaban. Were classified as such by the Ministry of Magic in 1717. The best protection is to use the spell Protego, which acts as a shield in the most cases.
Types of magicians: A muggle is a non-magical person. Of them may come a muggle child with magical powers (Hermione, Potter’s friend is one). Magicians ultraconservative disparagingly call them dirty blood, not being “pure” (no wizards or muggles mestizo family in the family). A squib is the opposite of a Muggle-born wizard, is a non-magical person born to parents magicians (or at least one of them). Are rare, because the magic is a dominant gene and resilient. There are also mixed with a muggle father and another magician. Key characters like Harry, Voldemort and Snape.
Technology and communications: The Magical World does not use Internet, no electricity, no phones. The popular media is sending letters by owls and owls. Communications are also through the patronus, or chimneys (with powder flu). Parents use a lot of howlers (Screamer): red envelopes that contain voice messages (usually a reprimand). The media are like the traditional ones, but there is only radio and newspapers. Television has little use apparently in the magical world.
Tips: If you see that some fans use these acronyms to communicate: PS, CS, PA, GF, OP, HBP, DH, PF, CF, PM, RM, do not worry, it’s how you have to refer to potteradictos books for the initials of their titles.
