POTTERTHON: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

So here I am with book three of the Harry Potterthon, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This is my ultimate favourite book. So much stuff happens in this book and it is so much darker than the first two books.

So a quick rundown of book three: In the summer before his third year at Hogwarts, Harry Potter becomes fed up with his horrible aunt and uncle, and after accidentally inflating his visiting aunt Marge, he runs away. Unfortunately, there's much more danger in the wizarding world than harry thought; convicted mass murderer, Sirius Black, has escaped from the wizarding prison Azkaban. Black is known as Lord Voldemort's most devoted follower, and he's after Harry to avenge Voldemort and finish the job. But not everything is what it seems, and inside of Hogwarts there may just be a traitor... 

Sirius Black is my favourite character of the series he is just so comepelling. And I just LOVE the Marauders. JK got their relationship just so perfectly right that to me they were more compelling characters than the trio themselves. I was admitt that I was a major Marauder era fanfiction nerd, I read it and shamefully wrote it too. I want to say to you now, if you are reading this post go read THE SHOEBOX PROJECT now. Yes it is fanfiction  but I take it as canon. And before you ask I am a major WolfStar shipper. It writes it's self people! 

Anyway I based my manicure today on the four most important characters of the books:

Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs
Purveyors of Aids to Magical Mischief Makers
Are proud to present

Yes so here we have a Moon (Moony- Remus Lupin) Rat's Tail (Wormtail- Peter Pettigrew), Paw Print (Padfoot- Sirius Black) and Antlers (Prongs- James Potter). I used a unamed purple polish for the base and then a range of Barry M polishes for the nail art.

  I am a bit upset that the film for book three never explained that the four were all close friends and that they created the map together (also don't get me started on the stupid free-frame ending!)

Today I leave you with a snippet from one of my fanfictions, written about 5-6 years ago so don't be too critical, enjoy:

An owl flying into the Great Hall each day wasn’t an unusual sight at Hogwarts - in fact, it was quite beautiful, unless, of course, one of the owls dropped a 'present' on your head or you had a phobia of birds. But other than that, the Breakfast post was great!

"Hey Pete what’s that?" asked a caffeine high Sirius Black, snatching a booklet out of his friend’s podgy hands from across the table, knocking over a milk jug in the process .

"Oh sugar!" he cursed, as milk spilt out onto the table and down the front of his trousers (causing many eyebrows to be raised later). At this, James Potter - a raven messy haired boy with glasses looked up from the crossword he had been doing in The Daily Prophet which he had been filling in with any Lily-Evans-related words. He reached out and emptied the contents of the nearest sugar bowl over his best friend’s head.

"Hey! What was that for?" the boy asked. James shrugged innocently and went back to musing at his crossword.

"My hair, Prongs! My hair! RUINED!" Sirius said, suddenly grabbing a clump and starting  to stroke it. "Don't worry hairy-wairy, your daddy won't let nasty James hurt you ever again." 

"That's quite disturbing." James commented.

"God Potter, just because yours look it got on the wrong side of a fight with a Hippogriff doesn't mean we all have to suffer!" 

After several more minuets of complaining loudly, Sirius went back to looking at the booklet he had stolen from Peter. The booklet he was surprised to learn hadn’t covered in sugar, milk, salvia or any other substance.

Its a play.

Well done for stating the obvious, spoke up Remus Lupin.

Its not Shakespeare is it? Sirius said, suddenly holding it at arms length as though it might contaminate him.

No, its not Shakespeare

Hey, isnt he the guy who was a prostitute ? asked James.

Protestant, James . Honestly how can you get them mixed up? He shook his head with disgrace

Anyway Wormtail, what are you doing with a play?

Well, he started, looking down at his now cold toast. My mums playing the Pumpkin in this Panto thingy and she sent me the script—”

SO WE COULD ACT IT OUT!  Sirius concluded.

No Padfoot. NO WAY

Oh come on, Moony.  Moony Moony Moonykins please?

Mayhem ensues....
