Transcript of Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone

The Way out
by J.K. Rowling
PLOT:
> After Lord Voldemort's death, Harry was delivered by Hagrid, Dumbledore, and Mcgonagall to the Muggle world--to his Aunt Petunia and Uncle Vernon's House-- for shelter.
Harry's Life in the MuggleWorld
> He was mistreated by the couple and bullied by his cousin, Dudley.
> Harry found out that he is a wizard. Hagrid fends off the Dursleys and prepares Harry for his first at the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
Harry's Life as a Wizard
> At Hogwarts:
He was sorted to Gryffindor
He became bestfriends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
He became the youngest wizard to play Quidditch.
He encountered magical creatures
> After accidentally stumbling into a forbidden corridor and finding a three-headed dog guarding a mysterious trapdoor, the trio attempt to find out what’s concealed within.
Nicholas Flamel's Elixir of Life--Sorcerer's Stone which makes the person who possesses it immortal.
The Search for the Sorcerer's Stone
> Harry inherited his father's Invisibility Cloak
> He discovered the Mirror of Erised and saw his dead parents.
> Harry, Ron, and Hermione decided to stop Snape from getting the stone by entering the trapdoor.
> He managed to defeat Voldemort and save the Stone, but not Quirrell’s life.
Through the Trapdoor
Victory over Voldemort
> The three guess that Voldemort wants the Stone, and that the suspicious Professor Snape is helping him.
> Inside, they have to solve various challenges:
Professor Sprout's Devil Snare
Professor Flitwick's charmed keys
Professor McGonagall's enchanted chess game
Mountain Troll
Professor Snape's Posion Riddle
> Instead of finding Professor Snape, Harry faced Professor Quirell who was helping Voldemort all along
> Dumbledore explains that Harry defeated Quirrell/Voldemort through the protection of his mother's love. He also mentions that the Stone has been destroyed.
> Dumbledore praised Ron, Hermione, Harry, and Neville for the parts they played in defeating Quirrell.
> Harry returns to London to spend the summer with the Dursleys.

Harry's Beginning:
“It was 1990. My then boyfriend and I had decided to move up to Manchester together. After a weekend's flat-hunting, I was travelling back to London on my own on a crowded train, and the idea for Harry Potter simply fell into my head.

I had been writing almost continuously since the age of six but I had never been so excited about an idea before. To my immense frustration, I didn't have a pen that worked, and I was too shy to ask anybody if I could borrow one…

I did not have a functioning pen with me, but I do think that this was probably a good thing. I simply sat and thought, for four (delayed train) hours, while all the details bubbled up in my brain, and this scrawny, black-haired, bespectacled boy who didn't know he was a wizard became more and more real to me.

Perhaps, if I had slowed down the ideas to capture them on paper, I might have stifled some of them (although sometimes I do wonder, idly, how much of what I imagined on that journey I had forgotten by the time I actually got my hands on a pen). I began to write 'Philosopher's Stone' that very evening, although those first few pages bear no resemblance to anything in the finished book."

Living in Portugal:
> 1991: Moved to Portugal to work as an English Teacher.
> October 22, 1992: she married a Portugese journalist, Jorge Arantes. But shortly after a year, they divorced.
> July 1993, she gave birth to her first daughter, Jessica .

Looking for an agent:
> "She wrote nearly every evening, then typed the whole thing out herself on an old manual typewriter, covered the first three chapters in a nice plastic folder and sent them off to an agent. They were returned so fast, they must have been sent back the same day they arrived." -jkrowling.com

> 1996: Scottish Arts Council gave Rowling an $8,000 grant for the book.

> Bloomsbury Publishing published the book with the tile "Harry Potter and the Philospher's Stone"

> 1997, Scholastic Inc. closed the deal to print copies in the US worth $105,000. They changed the title to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
