Pottermore Would you call the picture of the staircases in chapter 8 of Philosopher's Stone on Pottermore an appearance? Or do you even think that its the Grand Staircase. Its not the Marble Staircase because that only goes to the first floor from the Entrance Hall, and its seen in chapter 7. The Grand Staircase was never mentioned in the books.

I would say so. Its design was certainly based on the Grand Staircase as it appeared in the earlier films. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 22:56, November 5, 2011 (UTC)
But as Pottermore is based on the books, and the Grand Staircase doesn't appear in the books, why does the Grand Staircase appear on Pottermore? ---- 19:45, June 22, 2012 (UTC)
