It occurs to me that the feeling & symptoms the drinker gets are very similar to those of a person under the imperius curse. There may be some similarity between the effects of the two. This suggestion is, of course, open to revision. --Anonymous


Shouldn't Slughorn be under 'known uses'? --Clockworthy File:Match Madness 003.jpgExpand your my story 02:09, 16 January 2009 (UTC)

Film color

In the Half-Blood Prince film, the small vial of Felix Felicis appears to be clear and colorless, or possibly silver in color. Most definitely not an opaque golden color as I expected. But you never see it out of its vial in the film. Can anyone else confirm what color the film makes the potion look like? --MidnightLightning 20:50, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

It looked to me like a really pale yellow like they used lemonaid for filming. 17:55, July 30, 2012 (UTC)

Weird linking in table

The table of know uses links seem to be going to the wrong places. It should be corrected below. I did not want to mess with it on the actual article page since I'm not certain of the intentions of the links. --Kathkira talk 23:39, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Individual taking Potion Date Notes
Horace Slughorn once at age 24 and once at age 57 had two perfect days
Harry Potter 1996 Harry used the potion to get a memory from Horace Slughorn
Ron Weasley 1996 used the potion to help him escape from Death Eaters' curses
Ginny Weasley 1996 used the potion to help her escape from Death Eaters' curses
Hermione Granger 1996 used the potion to help her escape from Death Eaters' curses
Corrected. Maybe just vandalism that went unnoticed. Thanks for warning. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 23:46, 23 July 2009 (UTC)


Why would Felix Felicis not exist any more? It should be written in present tense, like other articles not relating specific events and people... --Emmy () 23:10, October 20, 2010 (UTC)

All articles are supposed to be in the past tense, as if we were writing for the historical record. And, please sign your posts. Thanks, --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 22:57, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
Right, but broader topics or articles about creatures and objects that aren't known to have been destroyed completely (e.g. potions, occupations, etc.) all seem to be written assuming they're still in existence, which is why I changed this article's tense back to present. Was that incorrect...? And sorry about forgetting to sign. --Emmy () 23:10, October 20, 2010 (UTC)
I'm confused, I just read through Forum:Past/Present tense?, and it says "This only affects articles about People. Articles of objects and magic will remain written in the Present tense." So has this policy changed since January? --BachLynnGryffindorcrest(Accio!) 13:13, October 21, 2010 (UTC)

Slughorn and Battle of Hogwarts

Shortly before the Battle of Hogwarts, in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, Slughorn is shown in the background taking a small phial from his cloak, unstoppering it, and drinking from it. I'd say this was either a pick-me-up to brace himself for the battle ahead or (most likely, in my opinion, given the situation) a phial or Felix Felicis. While this may be a tad speculative given that the phial is never seen in close up, could it be noteworthy enough to be added into "Behind the Scenes"? --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 18:54, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

I doubt it. It was probably just a pick-me-up as you suggested, but there are also probably hundreds of other potions that he has that would be helpful during a battle like that. Unless there is actually a good reason to believe that it is felix felicis, then that would just be mindless speculation that doesn't belong in this article.Icecreamdif 15:01, November 9, 2011 (UTC)

Seth Cooper, can you change the link? It's broken. Bernardo Potter (talk) 15:24, September 1, 2012 (UTC)
