是什么让你在日常生活中想起了魔法世界?

无论你是读着着《哈利·波特》故事长大的,还是随着纽特·斯卡曼德进入魔法世界的,难道你不喜欢在生活中某些日常事物像钥匙一样直接打开魔法世界中心的大门吗?这里是一些我们最喜爱的。

 

糖浆馅饼

哈利波特最喜欢的甜点总是让我们想起大礼堂的盛宴。哈利不仅在他在霍格沃茨的第一个晚上吃了它,而且你不认为这两个词-特别是以同一个字母开头的-有那种标志性的巫师美食家的感觉吗?想想乳脂软糖苍蝇,多味豆,吹舌太妃糖,蟑螂串(也许不是他们)-你就会明白我们的意思了。

 

国王十字车站

我们不知道你的情况,但我们每次在国王十字车站乘火车时,都会感到一阵兴奋,特别是当我们的火车停在九号或十号站台的时候。我们喜欢想象在9月1日时出现在那里,登上开往霍格沃茨的那台著名的红色蒸汽机。来吧,我们知道你们中的一些人也曾试图把手推车推过那堵墙……

 

棕色皮革箱包

这要感谢著名的神奇动物学家纽特·斯卡曼德。每次我们看到有人提着像纽特这样的行李箱,我们都会忍不住想起纽特在他的神奇行李箱里养的那些神奇的动物。一周中的任何一天,我们都愿意把自己无聊的箱子换成装满动物的行李箱。

 

火车上的手推车

“手推车上有什么东西吗,亲爱的?”在现在的火车上,这种情况很少见,但你可以打个赌,当手推车推入我们的车厢时,我们以及附近哈利波特粉丝一定会傻乎乎地咧嘴笑。可以肯定,我们对他们没有储备巧克力青蛙会感到失望,我们甚至会带一串蟑螂。

 

红头发的人

当一个红发女人走在你前面,那一瞬间,你会想到的是金妮·韦斯莱?莫莉·韦斯莱?还是是莉莉·波特?还有火红头发的男孩们,不要让我们开始谈论他们。如果我们看到两个红发双胞胎,我们可能会不停向他们打听去韦斯莱魔法把戏坊的路。

 

羊毛帽子

在赫敏为纪念S.P.E.W而不断编织毛线帽之后,冬天是一个我们每走五分钟都会想起魔法世界的季节。我们不仅会回忆起多比同时戴多顶帽子的情景,也会对罗恩说赫敏的针织帽子看起来像“羊毛膀胱”的评论不禁暗自发笑。他说得也许有道理,但你看不见。

 

槲寄生

“不过,里面可能全是蝻钩。”因为卢娜·洛夫古德,槲寄生的意义对我们来说将永远改变,我们不会再以其他方式被提醒她的善良和古怪。这也让我们想起了哈利和秋之间的那个吻。对魔法世界的粉丝们来说槲寄生确实让圣诞节变得更加神奇。

 

图书馆

图书馆一直都是个神奇的地方--你可以免费加入,并且你可以免费借阅书籍!还有比这更好的吗?赫敏当然不这么认为。又来了……图书馆和魔法世界通过我们最喜爱的霍格沃茨智囊团(译者注:这里原文是Hogwarts brainbox,可能翻的不准确,见谅)密不可分地联系在一起。每当把手放在书架上时,我们就会想象羊皮纸的味道,我们的一举一动彭斯夫人都看在眼里,或者就“妖怪们的妖怪书”而言,一本会试图咬掉我们手指的特别的书。

 

钻头

虽然我们不是弗农姨父的粉丝,但每当有人提到钻头,我们就会想起他的公司格朗宁斯(Grunnings),你猜对了,这家公司出售钻头。我们对格朗宁斯以及弗农·德思礼工作生活中的一天了解甚少(谢天谢地),但那情节显然给我们留下了深刻的印象。

 

柠檬果子露

在《哈利·波特与魔法石》中,我们第一次见到麦格教授时,邓布利多教授就给了她一个柠檬果子露。当然,她拒绝了。但聪明的校长显然很喜欢这种糖果,他甚至用“柠檬果子露”作为霍格沃茨办公室的密码。柠檬果子露作为我们去糖果店的首选,这不足为奇。

What reminds you of the Wizarding World in your day-to-day life

Whether you’ve grown up with the Harry Potter stories or entered the Wizarding World with Newt Scamander, don’t you just love the way certain everyday things act like Portkeys – taking you straight into the heart of the magical world? Here are a few of our favourites.

Treacle tart

 

Harry Potter’s favourite dessert always reminds us of feasts in the Great Hall. Not only did Harry eat it on his first-ever night at Hogwarts, but don’t you think the two words – particularly starting with the same letter – have that signature wizarding foodie feel about them? Think about Fudge Flies, Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans, Ton-Tongue Toffee, Cockroach Clusters (well maybe not them) – and you’ll see what we mean.

 

King’s Cross station

 

We don’t know about you, but every time we take the train from King’s Cross, we feel a little jolt of excitement, especially if our train is called for platform nine or ten. We like to imagine turning up there on the first of September and boarding that famous scarlet steam engine for Hogwarts. Come on, we know some of you have tried to push that trolley through the barrier too…

 

Brown leather suitcases

 

You can thank famous Magizoologist Newt Scamander for this one. Every time we see someone holding a suitcase like Newt’s, we can’t stop ourselves thinking about the fantastic beasts Newt kept in his magical one. We’d swap our own boring bags for a creature-filled valise any day of the week.

 

 

Trolleys on trains

 

‘Anything off the trolley, dears?’ They’re quite rare on trains nowadays, but you can bet we – and any other Harry Potter fans in the vicinity – will have a silly grin on our faces whenever there’s a food and drinks trolley rolling into our carriage. You can be sure we’re still disappointed that they don’t stock Chocolate Frogs – we’d even take a Cockroach Cluster.

 

Redheads

 

A red-headed woman walks in front of you. For a split-second, you think: Ginny Weasley? Molly Weasley? Maybe even Lily Potter? And flame-haired boys, don’t even get us started with them – so many Weasley brothers to mistake them for! If we saw two red-headed twins, we’d barely stop ourselves asking them the way to Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes.

 

Woolly hats

 

After Hermione’s persistent knitting of woolly hats in honour of S.P.E.W., winter is a time we can’t go five minutes without being reminded of the Wizarding World. Not only do we fondly recall Dobby’s wearing of multiple hats at once, but we chuckle at Ron’s comment that Hermione’s knitted hats looked like ‘woolly bladders’. He might have had a point; you just can’t un-see it.

 

 

Mistletoe

 

‘It’s probably full of Nargles, though’. Mistletoe will be forever changed for us because of Luna Lovegood – and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Who doesn’t want to be reminded of her kind and wacky ways? It also makes us think of a certain kiss between Harry and Cho. Mistletoe really does make Christmas even more magical for Wizarding World fans.

 

Libraries

 

Libraries have always been magical places – you can join them for FREE and then you can borrow books for NOTHING! Does it get any better than that? Hermione certainly doesn’t think so. And there we go again..! Libraries and the wizarding world are inextricably linked through our favourite Hogwarts brainbox. Whenever we run our hands along a bookshelf, we imagine the smell of parchment, Madam Pince watching our every move, or – in the case of The Monster Book of Monsters – a particular volume trying to bite our fingers off.

 

 

Drills

 

Although we’re not particular fans of Uncle Vernon, whenever anyone mentions drills, we find ourselves thinking of his firm, Grunnings, which – you guessed it – sold drills. We never found out much about Grunnings or what a day in the working life of Vernon Dursley looked like (thank goodness) – but those drills clearly made a lasting impression.

 

Sherbet lemons

 

Professor Dumbledore offered Professor McGonagall a sherbet lemon the very first time we met them in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. She refused it, of course. But the wise headmaster clearly had a liking for them; he even used ‘sherbet lemon’ as a password for his office at Hogwarts. It’s no surprise then that the sherbet lemon is our go-to choice on any sweetshop visit.
