* OldShame: Remus Lupin has a mix of this and genuine nostalgia towards his school days. Admitting that the times he and his friends spent sneaking out of Hogwarts was the happiest he had been in his life, but also regretting the risks they kept pulling and the many near-misses they did.
** He does regret not clamping down on James' bullying of Snape, believing that he had enabled it by offering token disapproval.

** The first book's title was changed from ''Philosopher's Stone'' to ''Sorcerer's Stone'' in America because the myth of the Philosopher's Stone was not well-known to Americans at the time and Creator/Scholastic believed kids would not want to read a book that had the word "philosopher" in it.

** ''Chamber of Secrets'' had several bits of Voldemort's backstory and plot foreshadowing that the editors forced Rowling to cut to make it shorter. Rowling had to cram them into ''Half Blood Prince''.

Added DiffLines:

* NeverWorkWithChildrenOrAnimals: As Katie Couric pointed out in a TV special about the making of the first film, ''Harry Potter'' breaks both rules rather spectacularly. Chris Columbus has said that the first film is full of cuts because the kids would so often ruin takes by laughing, looking into the camera, etc. He was therefore quite impressed that the main trio had progressed enough to be able to do TheOner in later films. And, of course, the UK's child actor laws provided the inconvenience of only being able to use their lead actors for four hours per day while they were still underage. The Great Hall scenes were especially difficult, as they combined the difficulty of working with children and the difficulty of working with crowds.

** Rowling never said that she may have subconsciously let the name "Harry Potter" from the ''Troll'' series seep into [[Literature/HarryPotter her story]], regardless of what {{Phelous}} or any number of other people may tell you. What she actually said is that she took the name "Potter" from a family she was friends with as a child, and "Harry" simply because she has always loved that name.
