I hope I’m not too early in saying that Pottermore is now open to everyone. I was finally able to get in and am now in the process of exploring the site.
Yes, that’s my username on the site, FlameProphecy1681. I didn’t actually create the username myself. They basically give you 4 (or was it 5?) usernames to choose from, and this one I thought was nice.
So far, it’s interesting, and there’s definitely some informative background information on many items, such as the put-outer, and characters (including the Petunia Dursley and her relationship with her sister, Lily), however, you have to wait patiently for all the chapters to be opened for you, at least for now. I’m up to where Harry gets to Diagon Alley, but getting to Gringott’s Bank is locked for now.
I guess waiting means I won’t be able to get sorted yet?
Anyway, through each section you go through, there’s something to read and/or collect, so be on the lookout for those things. Use the up and down arrows of your keyboard to zoom into and out of each scene, too. I’m assuming they’ll want you to collect all the things that are available to collect on the way.
Well, that’s it for now, I guess. I’m not sure how the site sorts you, but hopefully it’ll be fun. I’ve been keen to the Slytherin House, but not very many people think I actually act Slytherin-ish, so when I find out, I’ll be tweeting that!
I could give you more pictures from the site, but it’s just best you go in and find out for yourself. Enjoy!
To get started on your own journey, go to Pottermore now!
