Pottermore, PoA Chapter 21 (what I’ve found so far…)

DISCLAIMER: This is not exactly a live blog and it’s definitely not a Finder’s Guide. Apparently, I found everything, so…

Here’s what I’ve (DO NOT READ IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED!)…

CHAPTER 21: HERMIONE’S SECRET

Scene 1 (“Time Turner”)

  • Zoom 1:
    • Now that’s some awesome animation! I’ve never envisioned the Time Turner looking like that before!
  • Zoom 2:
    • Double-click and the doors open, and we see the jewels for the different Houses moving backwards.
    • UNLOCK “Time Turner” (JKR-exclusive content). We learn a lot more about the limitations of time travel in the Harry Potter universe, and JKR reveals why she destroyed the entire stock of Time Turners during the Battle in the Dept. of Mysteries. NOTE: Rowling’s problem arose because she used the “time paradox” trope of time travel. However, since Time Travel itself is a convention, time paradox is not the only way in which Time Travel can play out. But it’s the best trope to use if you need to change the past!
    • COLLECT 5 Galleons.
    • COLLECT Bertie Bott’s Cheese-Flavoured Bean.
    • COLLECT Montrose Magpies badge at base of Ravenclaw statue. (Thanks, Ramona!)

Scene 2 (“Buckbeak’s Rescue”)

Hmmm… this looks an awful lot like “The Committee.” ;)

  • Zoom 1:
    • But since this is the same scene through the Time Turner, there’s new stuff to collect!
    • COLLECT Unicorn Tail Hair.
  • Zoom 2:
    • Hover cursor to get Buckbeak to move his head.
    • COLLECT Dried Billywig Stings.
    • COLLECT a Galleon

Scene 3 (“Prongs”)

Thanks to Let’s Call Me Lily for helping me straighten out the Zooms…

  • Zoom 1:
    • COLLECT a Murlap Tentacle (known for their healing properties).
  • Zoom 2:
    • UNLOCK “Patronus” (JKR-exclusive content).
    • COLLECT Tubeworms.
  • Zoom 3:
    • COLLECT Slimy Seaweed.

Scene 4 (“Sirius and Buckbeak Escape”)

  • Zoom 1:
    • Hover cursor to make Buckbeak flap his wings.
    • COLLECT a Galleon.
    • COLLECT an Owl Treat.
  • Zoom 2:
    • COLLECT Hesper Starkey Chocolate Frog Card. (She studied the phases of the moon in Potions making).
    • Move cursor over top of tower to make an owl fly and ring a bell.

Key to Zoom Levels:
I am using the conventions I’ve seen used elsewhere when discussing Pottermore zoom levels:

    • Zoom 1 = the original zoom level.
    • Zoom 2 = zoom in one level from Zoom 1.
    • Zoom 3 = zoom in two levels from Zoom 1.
    • Zoom OUT 2 = zoom out one level from Zoom 1.
    • Zoom OUT 3 = zoom out two levels from Zoom 1.

Pottermore, PoA Chapter 20 (what I’ve found so far…)

DISCLAIMER: This is not exactly a live blog and it’s definitely not a Finder’s Guide. It’s what I’ve found so far. There’s also probably some stuff I’m missing. :)

Here’s what I’ve found so far (DO NOT READ IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED!)…

CHAPTER 20: THE DEMENTOR’S KISS

Scene 1 (“Full Moon”)

  • Zoom 1:
    • UNLOCK “Werewolves” (JKR-exclusive content). This is fascinating content and well-worth reading – particularly the bits about the Ministry’s various werewolf offices and what happens when werewolves mate in werewolf form.
    • Hover cursor to make manacles jump.
    • COLLECT Dittany.
  • Zoom 2:
    • Use cursor to make Were-Lupin and Animagus-Sirius bite at each other’s muzzles and snarl even louder.
    • COLLECT Wormwood.
    • COLLECT Monkshood. (I guess we’re making the Draught of Living Death!)

Scene 2 (“The Lake Shore”)

  • Zoom 1:
    • Harry faces off with the Dementors. Nothing to do here.
  • Zoom 2:
    • COLLECT Tubeworms
    • COLLECT Spine of Lionfish
    • COLLECT a Pebble (No Potions use, but apparently useful as a paperweight)
    • In the Comments, Let’s Call Me Lily adds: “To fill the bar, click on Harry’s wand in moment 2 – it will kinda spark and tinkle :) Very like a Patronus, right?”

CHAPTER 12: THE PATRONUS

Scene 1 (“Expecto Patronum”)

Nice to finally see a scene that is named after this blog! ;)

  • Zoom 1:
    • COLLECT the Chocolate Frog Card for Andros the Invincible (an ancient Greek Wizard who is supposed to have produced a gigantic Patronus) – in the drawer of the first desk to the left in back of Lupin.
    • UNLOCK “Dementors and Chocolate” (JKR-Exclusive Content) – on the desk in front of where Harry is sitting. There’s not really much content there though.
  • Zoom 2:
    • Move cursor towards Lupin to lock up the boggart.
    • COLLECT 5 galleons – by opening the door to the shelves to the left.
    • COLLECT a Bertie Bott’s Pumpkin-Flavoured Bean – from the drawer to the desk next to the desk with the Chocolate Frog card.

CHAPTER 9: GRIM DEFEAT

Scene 1 (“Gryffindor Versus Hufflepuff”)

  • Zoom 1:
    • Dementor voices and rain noises. See Dementors on the ground looking up at Harry. I don’t think there’s anything to find here.
  • Zoom 2 (pulls back and moves frame up into the sky):
    • Stephen Fry or Jim Dale reads the scene from the audiobook. Selection ends with Harry remembering his mother’s scream.
    • Move cursor to get Harry to chase the snitch.

That’s all! There does not appear to be anything to collect in this chapter.
