Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

07/11/2005: Muggle of a dream come true…

Proof that “Fan Fiction” is sometimes more than it’s own reward: Web site casts spell on ‘Potter” Author is a modern day story of internet-connectivity on a Super Fan-Club scale as an Indiana young man, Emerson Sprat’s, Muggle.net website earns him both praise and a visit with J.K. Rowling.

“…Mugglenet.com, his dense and authoritative Web site about all things Potter that's so complete Rowling refers to it to keep her plot lines and characters' idiosyncrasies on track.
On her Web site, jkrowling.com, the author has honored a half-dozen fan sites with a little write-up and plaque in a mock trophy room. Among them: Mugglenet and The Leaky Cauldron, and on behalf of her Internet audience, Rowling invited founders Spartz and The-Leaky-Cauldron.org's Melissa Anelli to Scotland for a chat Saturday amid book release festivities.
Because of Mugglenet, Warner Bros. has hosted Spartz on the movie set of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire." Last year the studio gave him backstage passes to the New York and London premieres of "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban" so he could be the eyes and ears of Mugglenet…”

Sounds like Great FUN and have to check out his site…and look for the 101 Ways to Annoy Lord Voldemort and The Wall of Shame.
