The twenty-sixth issue of Leaky's premier essay project, Scribbulus, is now online, filled with a variety of essays related to the Harry Potter novels for your reading pleasure.  Our March issue features five essays, which include a character analysis of the character of Petunia Dursley, a side-by-side comparison of the childhoods of Severus Snape and Harry Potter, an analysis of the chess game as portrayed in the Sorcerer's Stone film, a discussion of Hermione's parents, and a warning about reading the Harry Potter books. 

We also give our congratulations, along with 100 MyLeaky points, to Moose_Starr, who has won the Reader's Choice Poll for his essay The Sphinx and the Spider from Issue 25.  All authors who have their essays published in Scribbulus will receive 75 MyLeaky points as well.

This, and all of our previous issues of Scribbulus, are available on the Scribbulus section of the site.  Information submitting your essay to Scribbulus can be found here, while you can also discuss our essays in our forum on the Leaky Lounge.

I will download and read it next weekend. Many of the articles look interesting. Unfortunately, school is adamant upon sucking away as much of my free time as it can…

On a random note, a couple of these authors refer to the HP series as a “Saga”…I’ve never heard that term used for the series before. Hmm. Curious.

the demon in my harry potter books is EXCELLENT. i had tears in my eyes!
and i absolutely agree about petunia. i never really thought she was that bad.
yeah…i think hermione just felt too seperate from her parents, but i think she loved them a lot too.
and yeah. there is a huge difference between neglect and abuse.
