Thank you, Commenters!

I just wanted to thank all the commenters who have pointed out various items I’ve missed in Chapters 5-11. It took me awhile to approve all the comments, but they should be visible now.

I’ll be going back into Pottermore in a little while, finding all the stuff I missed, and adding items and locations to the posts!

THANKS AGAIN!

Pottermore, CoS Chapter 11 (what I’ve found so far…)

    • It says that once we are successful with the Potion, we should go back to Professor Snape’s office. I’ll let you know what I find in Professor Snape’s office once I’m successful. :)  (My potion is 19% finished brewing right now… and who knows what the second stage of the spell brings… though I suspect it will involve Bat Spleens!)
