I demand a recount.

The best spell is obviously Riddikulus ...

I've always liked wingardium leviosa, or maybe it's just how Emma Watson says it in the films.
I will expand your TBR pile.

That along with Expelliarmus and Alohomora :)

Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

'Yes' said Caladan Brood. 'You never learn'

Harry Potter spells are real apparently  :o

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/books/2019/sep/02/harry-potter-books-removed-from-catholic-school-on-exorcists-advice

That happened in my grade school too, would you believe that!  ;D It's an Adventist Christian school and somehow Harry Potter reminded the administrators of witches and dark magic, so they were banned. Chronicles of Narnia and other fantasy stories also got the short end of the stick, so we're stuck with reading gospel stories.  ::)

For the spells I've always personally liked Septumsempra, that spell Snape created. It's pretty damn badass, seriously.

Narnia? Christian allegory and all?

Probably because of the Christian allegory, hahah.  ;D What with referring to god as a lion and representing satan with the witch and all. I guess they just don't like that.
