Pottermore, PoA Chapter 14 (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!)…


Scene 1 (“Buckbeak’s Appeal”)

  • Zoom 1:
    • COLLECT a Bath bun – in the foreground, to the right of the candle.
  • Zoom 2:
    • Move cursor to get Buckbeak to eat from the bloody ferret meat in front of him.
    • Move cursor to get Fang to yawn.
    • Move cursor to make the worms move.
    • COLLECT Chocolate Frog Card for Wilfred Elphick (first Wizard gored by an African Erumpet) – by opening the top drawer beneath the worms.
    • COLLECT a Galleon – by opening the second drawer beneath the worms.
    • COLLECT Flobberworm Mucus – at the base of the chest beneath the bowl of worms.
    • CLOSER LOOK at the letter sent to Hagrid concerning Buckbeak’s attack on Malfoy – from the pocket in the hanging coat.

Scene 2 (“The Shrieking Shack”)

  • Zoom 1:
    • Move cursor over Harry’s head, to get Harry to become visible from beneath his Invisibility Cloak and hear the cloak removed.
    • COLLECT a bar of Frog Spawn Soap – from Ron’s pocket.
    • COLLECT a Leaping Toadstool – from the base of the tree next to the Shrieking Shack.
    • Move cursor over gate to hear it creak.
    • Move cursor over the pathway to get a squishy sound and the movement of what might possibly be leaping toadstools. (sorry, can’t tell precisely)
  • Zoom 2:
    • COLLECT Valerian Sprigs – from the valley to the right.
    • From the Comments:
      • COLLECT a Sprig of Lavendar from the dark patch on the side of the central hill. (Thanks, Annie and Elizabeth!)

Scene 3 (“A Spare Bit of Parchment”)

  • Zoom 1:
    • Move the cursor over the jars on Snape’s shelves to see some of the contents move.
    • COLLECT Pufferfish Eyes – from the left side of the third shelf to Snape’s left.
    • COLLECT Bat Spleens – from the floor below the shelves to Snape’s left.
    • COLLECT Dragon Liver – from the floor below the shelves to Snape’s left.
    • COLLECT Eels’ Eyes – from the right side of the second shelf to Snape’s left.
    • Move cursor over the bag to Harry’s left to see one of the items move. (sorry… can’t tell what it is).
    • CLOSER LOOK – the insult the Marauder’s Map gave to Severus Snape.
    • Move the cursor over Snape’s right arm to get him to throw the floo powder in the fireplace – and bring Lupin into the picture.

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.
