A Patronus charm is a spell (Expecto Patronum!) that summons a force of positive energy to keep away dementors. To preform this spell, one must imagine one of the happiest moments of one's life. This memory, along with the traits and Hogwarts House of the spell caster, decide the animal that the spell brings forth.
Harry calls for a stag, like his father. He uses a memory of his parents, happy and normal. Albus' brother, Aberforth, has the most powerful patronus in the series because he remembers his siblings, Albus and Arriana, alive and well as children.
So here's the test. I hope you enjoy. I've included a couple so you can find the patronus that either fits you most or appears most often. Pottermore also offers a great patronus test but you require a free account. If you're interested in that, click here.
Anyone want to support their inner Patronus?

Well to put it simply, the night Harry gets it is the night his parents die and he begins a lifelong combat against his ultimate enemy. That same villain is the antagonist and cause of conflict throughout the entire series. He is referred to mostly as He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named or Who-Know-Who, for the first few books out of fear. Then Harry gains the courage to refer to the Dark Lord as Voldemort. Only Dumbledore, however, is willing to call Voldemort by his true name, Tom Marvolo Riddle.
A Lightning Bolt scar appears on the victim of dark magic. In Harry's case, Voldemort struck him with the Killing Curse - aka, avada kedavra. The only reason Harry lived - because that curse is near impossible to block - was because his mother sacrificed herself to save Harry. Voldemort claims it as old magic only, while Dumbledore describes it as loving. Meanwhile, her sacrifice made Harry impervious to Voldemort's curse, so it rebounded. It hit himself. Voldemort only survived because of his horcruxes.
This tattoo lasts 5-7 days and is water resistant. It's 1.5" by 2".
For all your Harry Potter looks beyond the scar!
What is Harry Potter without the music? (In the films at least; they have yet to come out with a singing book.) Based on the theme music from the movies, the ringtone is free for download and easy to install. Download it here, save it, and upload it to your phone.
I was reading Book 6 of The Series, Harry potter and the Half-Blood Prince, when my phone rang. I answered it, spoke for a long time about boring work stuff, then hang up. I went back to reading, finished the chapter, and looked back at my phone. The idea dawned upon me then and now I bring you the my favorite ringtone of all time.
On the day any student first arrives he or she is sorted into one of the four houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. Each House was created by one of the founders of Hogwarts. Godric Gryffindor, a brave noble wizard. Helga Hufflepuff, dedicated and hardworking. Raveena Ravenclaw, wise and clever. And Salazar Slytherin, ambitous and cunning. All four were the most powerful of the age, and so joined together to form the school Hogwarts.
A magical sorting hat would be placed on the person’s head, and it would choose the best house for said person. Based on the character traits in the below chart, which Hogwarts house would you be in? Take the harry potter house quiz to find out if you’re right. I’ve collected a bunch so you can try your luck with a few and find which house you’re most often in (or just like the most).
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them, a movie created by Warner Bros and written by J.K. Rowling, is set before the Harry Potter series. It is located primarily in New York and reveals all the magic in America. And it’s going to be released on the 18 of November!
The first trailer released on Youtube from Warner Bros:
And here's the second trailer:
Exceptionally old and wise, Professor Albus Dumbledore formerly owned the elder wand before Voldemort stole it from him. Dumbledore, even after his death, planned assistance for Harry with killing Lord Voldemort, mainly from Snape.

For the purpose of actually putting the Top 5 Best Harry Potter Spells to use, we won’t include the Unforgivable Curses because they’re against wizardry law. All other spells will be considered usable, though. Beginning with five – the worst of the best – here goes the Top five Harry Potter Spells:
Stupefy is known as the Stunning Spell. It is a very common spell in battle, at least for those not using Unforgivable Curses. The spell acts as a combative curse, but has no lasting harm. When preformed, a flash that leaves the wand will, if hit a living target, knock him/her unconscious. If the spell hits an non-living target, it stops it if it is in motion.
This spell, known as the summoning charm, is not simple to preform. The caster must have some willpower towards his/her intent when casting it. The target (normally inanimate), if the wand is pointing at it, will fly towards the charm caster. If the target is not in view the word following the charm will be summoned.
This spell is theorized to be used as a disarming weapon; the charm caster would summon whatever weapon his attacked or opponent has so he/she can use it against its owner.
This spell, the disarming charm, is used as its name implies. If the spell hits a hand of the target, said target is forced to release whatever he/she is holding. If it hits anything but the hand of the target, that target will be sent flying backwards as well as being disarmed. It is sometimes known to launch victim even if it just hits their hand. This spell is not ranked higher on the Best Harry Potter Spells list because, while this spell disarmes opponents, they can get right back up. Also, if they aren’t alone, their friend can use the previously mentioned Accio spell to summon his/her wand and return it to them.
This is the memory-eraser spell. The only time this was ever used in the Harry Potter series was by Lockhart towards Ron Weasly. Unfortunately for Lockhart, he was using a faulty wand and it backfired. Lockhart lost all his memories, though that wasn’t the intent and only happened because it was preformed improperly. Normally the spell is designed to remove specific memories. The Ministry for Magic uses it often to erase memories of muggles who have witnessed magic.
It is theorized to be used in a battle so that the opponent doesn’t what he/she is doing or why he/she is doing. To any end, this is a powerful charm not to be used lightly.
The shield spell blocks almost every spell. The shield has the ability to absorb an incoming spell, ricochet off of it, or reflect it directly back at the attacker. This is especially useful is the caster of the shield is being attacked by someone using rather nasty Curses, as they can fight back with equally force without actually casting those curses. For these reasons, Protogo is the Best Harry Potter spells for self protection.
