Harry Potter

About 3-4 years ago I discovered the most amazing books and movies in the whole wide world, and those are Harry Potter. There is 7 books and 8 movies and I love every single one of them. They are about this boy named Harry and he discovers that he is a wizard and it’s basically the story of his life at Hogwarts (a school for wizards). There he battles against other wizards, dragons, plays quidditch, and makes some potions. He does it all with his loyal, caring, and best friends, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. If you have not read the books or seen the movies I would recommend that you start with the books, they’re so amazing. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE start with the first book or movie because if you don’t it’s just gonna be a huge disaster and you’re not gonna understand anything and you’re gonna hate it. Trust me, that happened to my cousin and some of my friends, and don’t skip any!!! They are all very important. Those books/movies are so amazing, I’ve never read/seen anything like that, they are so original and such a unique story, after you read the books or see the movies you’re gonna want to be a wizard, it’s just so magical and fun. That’s a completely different world. The first Harry potter book (Harry Potter and the philosopher’s stone) was first published in June 26, 1997 and the first movie was released in November 14, 2001. The last Harry Potter (Harry Potter and the deathly hallows) book was published in July 21, 2007 and the last movie part 1 was released in November 19, 2010 and part 2 in July 11, 2011 in New York city. You honestly need to read the books or see the movies (I would recommend you read the books first).

Hades

Hades is the God of the underworld and the oldest son of Cronus and Rhea. After Hades and his brothers, Zeus and Poseidon defeated their father and the other titans to gain power over the “Cosmos”, the brothers drew lots. Hades drew the worst lot becoming god of the underworld. He kidnapped Persephone, daughter of Demeter, Hades sister. Hades forced Persephone to marry him and fed her a pomegranate which caused her to be stuck in the underworld for a third of the year. He has a 3 headed dog called Cerberus. Cerberus guarded the underworld. He kept the dead from escaping and the living from entering. Cerberus father was a fire breathing dragon who was married to a half woman half serpent. Their names were Typhon and Echidna. They were both feared by the gods on Mt. Olympus. Cerberus was very friendly to the dead and new spirits entering Hades, the underworld. Although he ate anyone who tried passing him to enter the land of the living once more.
