Post J.K. Rowling writes new Harry Potter spells, textbooks information for Pottermore

J.K. Rowling's interactive Harry Potter website Pottermore announced earlier this week via Twitter that new excerpts from several textbooks featured in the first installment of the seven-book saga, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone were released by the author.

The summaries could be found by location specific books in the library chapters throughout Philosopher's Stone, which will light up purple once you've hovered over them. A few teasers from the textbooks, which can be found in chapters 12, 14, and 15, can be read below. The full excerpts can not be reproduced due to copyright protection on all the new canon text revealed by Rowling.

Curses and Counter-Curses
- The Tickling Spell: Point your wand directly at your enemy and shout ‘Titillando!’
- The Leg-Locker Curse: Point your wand directly at your enemy and shout ‘Locomotor Mortis!’
- The Full Body-Bind: Point your wand directly at your enemy and shout ‘Petrificus Totalus!’
- Tongue-Tying Spell: Point your wand directly at your enemy and shout ‘Mimble wimble!’
- Jelly-Legs Curse: Point your wand directly at your enemy and shout ‘Locomotor Wibbly!’

One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi
- Dittany is a powerful healing herb and restorative and may be eaten raw to cure shallow wounds.

A Beginner's Guide to Transfiguration
- Incomplete Transfigurations are difficult to put right, but you must attempt to do so. Leaving the head of a rabbit on a footstool is irresponsible and dangerous. Say ‘Reparifarge!’ and the object or creature should return to its natural state.

The Standard Book of Spells (Grade 1)
- The lesser charms are not very difficult to break and many of those that you learn as a young wizard will wear off in a matter of days or even hours.

The Dark Forces: A Guide to Self-Protection
- The Zombie dwells only in the Southern part of America. It is an example, like the Vampire, of the Living Dead and may be recognised by its greyish colour and its rotten smell.

No new information has been revealed regarding the opening of Chamber of Secrets on Pottermore, which CEO Charles Redmayne stated would be weeks away.
