The war against Voldemort is not going well; even Muggle governments are noticing. Ron scans the obituary pages of the Daily Prophet, looking for familiar names. Dumbledore is absent from Hogwarts for long stretches of time, and the Order of the Phoenix has already suffered losses.
As in all wars, life goes on. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate — and lose a few eyebrows in the process. The Weasley twins expand their business. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Classes are never straightforward, though Harry receives some extraordinary help from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince.
So it's the home front that takes center stage in the multilayered sixth installment of the story of Harry Potter. Here are Hogwarts, Harry will search for the full and complex story of the boy who became Lord Voldemort — and thereby find what may be his only vulnerability.
My Top 3 Uses for Felix Felicis
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking on how I would use Felix Felicis, the good luck potion known as Liquid Luck. The following are the three situations in which I would love to use Felix Felicis.
I would love some good luck when traveling, especially when traveling by air. I, for one, hate airports. There are lines to get through security. There are NEVER enough seats near the gate. The food options past security are terrible. There are quite often people on the flight coughing and we are breathing recycled air. When it gets turbulent, I am terrified the plane will fall out of the air and everyone will die. I usually end up with a headache when doing any sort of traveling. Anything to make all this easier and less stressful would be appreciated.
2. Some Work Days
I don’t know about you but I definitely have days at work that are downright terrible. Suddenly everything needs to be done IMMEDIATELY… and someone still needs to teach. Some days are just too much. Felix Felicis could make some of this easier.
3. Test Days
I know. I know. Professor Slughorn told us Felix Felicis is banned during tests but, come on. Who wouldn’t like a little extra luck when taking the GRE? I definitely wouldn’t turn down any help. That test is terribly hard! (I can tell you that from experience. *shudders*)
These are the top three situations in which I would love to be able to use Felix Felicis. I could easily add more (i.e. days I’m contacting publishers) but I don’t want this list to be too epic. 🙂
