Already being discussed in Requests for deletion, but aside from that, is this a proper or common noun? Could someone with the books check, please. The article has "Veritaserum - Proper noun" but was created at "veritaserum" (since moved to "Veritaserum"). — Paul G 06:13, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

From the US edition of Book 5, The Goblet of Fire: "Snape handed Dumbledore a small glass bottle of completely clear liquid: the Veritaserum with which he had threatened Harry." Now I don't think this should be included, the scope of the word is the series of books, and the related fandom, no more. If this merits inclusion so does every potion, spell and beast in every popular fantasy novel ever, and I am just not willing to say that is the case. If someone wants to add a Harry Potter glossary to WikiBooks, I am all for that and will even add some terms if they like, but if this meets the CFI I think we should reevaluate that criteria. - TheDaveRoss 06:23, 31 May 2006 (UTC)
Added this to the discussion page. If the crteria changes, it can be deleted. I still thinkt should be a protologism. Andrew massyn 11:44, 9 July 2006 (UTC)
