What is a fanlisting? A fanlisting is simply an online listing of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join.

>>Small Deathly Hallows spoilers ahead!!<<

I am a huge of the Harry Potter books/films and one of my favorite magical objects in them are the Wands! A wand is a witch or wizard's most valuable possesion. It's a tedious process when first picking out one's wand, as the wand chooses the witch/wizard according to his/her magical personalities. Wands also play an important role beginning in Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire when it becomes known that Harry & Voldemort's wands share a connection. Then later in Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows there is an Elder Wand which is extremely powerful and when used by it's rightful owner that witch/wizard cannot be defeated in a duel. I am so very grateful to have gotten the approval to build a fanlisting for this particular subject. Thank you so much to Sophie of TFL.org for approving me :)

From Wikipedia.org:

Spells are the every-purpose tools of a wizard or witch; short bursts of magic used to accomplish single specialised tasks such as opening locks or creating fire. Typically casting requires an incantation, most often in a modified form of Latin, and gesturing with a wand. However, these seem to be aids to the will only; wands are in most cases required, but there are indications that sufficiently advanced witches and wizards can perform spells without them. Spells can also be cast non-verbally, but with a wand.

It is evidently also possible to use your wand without holding it. Harry himself performs Lumos to light his wand when it is lying on the ground somewhere near him. This should not be confused with wandless magic, as the wand was still the source of light.
