We'd love to take a Portkey to this graveyard!

Officials in Edinburgh have been ordering the removal of letters from Harry Potter fans on one particular grave! And no, the epitaph doesn't read, "Here Lies Dobby A Free Elf."

Thomas Riddell may have been a general who died back in 1806, but centuries later he is now the cause of some news, seeing how his name is almost identical to the actual identity of Voldemort, Tom Riddle.

His gravesite in Greyfriers Kirkyard has been getting a lot of notes from the Harry Potter fanbase, as if this general had died in the Battle of Hogwarts instead!

Well, at least they haven't been leaving the Dark Mark! Nothing ruins a graveyard quite like Morsmordre!

An Edinburgh City Council spokesperson had this to say:

While we think A History of Magic might be a good title for this upcoming bibliography, we'll settle with J.K. Rowling: A Bibliography!

Bloomsbury Academic is set to publish the most valuable piece of…well, academia for any Harry Potter fan! They're coming out with a bibliography that will chronicle the publication of the magical series this December!

1 billion points to Gryffindor!

Here's the briefest of synopses to get your motor going as fast as the Hogwarts Express in anticipation:

Emma Watson, you sneaky little thing, you!

While on Live with Kelly & Michael, Daniel Radcliffe spilled the deets on the worst April Fools' joke ever committed against him (excluding the Weasley brothers, of course).

Apparently, Emma convinced him when he was 14 years old (talk about a Time-Turner) that his favorite band (aside from the Weird Sisters) The Libertines had decided to break up!

Ch-ch-check out his interview where he tells the story himself (above)!!!

This news makes our wands very much at the ready!

The much anticipated Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be three movies! Count them… One! Two! Three! (chuckles like the Count from Sesame Street)

Whoa, did we just take the Felix Felicis potion or what?! We feel so lucky!

As we already know, the trilogy will start off in New York and focus on Newt Scamander, the "magizoologist," on his beastly adventures decades before the plot of Harry Potter takes place!

We practically need a time-turner just so we can make this anticipation go down a bit! A Harry Potter threesome?! Yes, please!

Everyone wants that. We just know it.

Game Of Thrones Kids Versus Harry Potter And Hunger Games! Who Would Win?

| Filed under: TV NewsHarry PotterHunger GamesFunnyGame Of ThronesGIFs

Who would win in a fight? The Game of Thrones kids face some stiff competition, but they also have high hopes!

When asked which of their pop culture contemporaries their characters could take in a fight, Maisie Williams, Sophie Turner, and Isaac Hempstead-Wright were optimistic about their chances against The Simpsons.

But when facing foes like Katniss from Hunger Games and Hermione from Harry Potter, does anyone stand a chance? Even the Stark children?

Hmm, maybe if they were allowed to call in their Uncle Tony…

Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson have yet to weigh in, but you can see how the Starks think the Hunger Games Of Thrones Of The Phoenix would go down …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
