If you’re a Harry Potter fan, then you have to admit that at one time or another you have wished that something in the story actually existed. Whether it was a useful spell, an interesting potion, or even Hogwarts itself. Here are five things from the Harry Potter books that I wish I could use in every day life.
5. Lumos. This spell has been used and seen in almost all of the films. It allows anyone to use their wand as a flashlight. I can’t tell you how many times I could have use this spell while I was searching for my car keys at the bottom of my bag in the dark. This spell is simple, yet it would be extremely useful.
4. Veritaserum. This potion is used to force someone to tell the truth. Imagine never having to wonder what someone was thinking; you could just slip some of this potion into their “pumpkin juice” and you would have no more suspicions.
3. Time Turner. The first time I read about Hermione’s time turner in the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, $10.99 from Amazon) I was so jealous. No longer would I have to worry about procrastinating, I could just go back in time a few hours and start all over again. Oh, the things I could do with a time turner.
2. Felix Felicis. The lucky potion was one of the crucial elements that helped Harry solve the mystery of the horcruxes in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Book 6), $12.99 from Amazon) but it also would be awesome to have in real life. Imagine a day where you know everything will go perfect no matter what. Sign me up.
1. Invisibility cloak. Having invisibility is one of the main superpowers everyone always seems to wish for and lucky for Harry, he had the ability to do so. Even though having the option to be invisible could be creepy for others and even possibly illegal, it would still be awesome to try out.
Tell me, Lovelies: What Harry Potter spell, potion, object do you wish was real?
