Oberon Zell-Ravenheart is headmaster of the world's only real-life school of witchcraft and wizardry.

Giving Hogwarts a run for its money the Grey School of Wizardry boasts 735 students including 100 under 18 "Harry Potter trainees". 68-year-old Oberon himself is as eccentric as they come, he even goes to the supermarket for his shopping dressed in robes and carrying a staff. "If you've ever read Harry Potter and wondered if wizards really do walk among us, perhaps behind a secret train platform, or in secret communities, I can tell you that we are absolutely real," he says.

"He is the real-life wizard headmaster giving Harry Potter’s Dumbledore a run for his money."

I cannot tell if you are joking or not. You didn't really sign up for this?It's in California it seems. It's ridiculous, even if you truly want to learn the craft. It's a religion, not a way to cast spells to make the lead singer of One Direction love you. If you truly want to learn the craft, being ripped off by this guy cashing in in harry Potter, is not the way to do it. There are plenty of legit practitioners in California. Just sayin.

No, I didn't sign up. I'm just messing around. And for your information, I hate One Direction. I like Skillet better.

I did not. I wouldn't waste my money on something like that. And yes, I'm the kind of girl that likes rock bands better then boy bands.

Well that doesn't mean you still don't want the singer to fall in love with you.

The lead singer is taken. Plus, I'm not the stereotypical teen girl who wants a famous singer to fall for them. I'm perfectly fine with the boyfriend I already have.
