"Going to Hogwarts, BRB!" —Neshomeh

Platform 9 ¾ is a magical platform at King's Cross in the Harry Potter continuum. This is where students gather on September 1st to board the Hogwarts Express to travel to Hogwarts, and where they return when leaving during the Christmas holidays or at the end of the term. It is accessed by means of a magical barrier between platforms 9 and 10 that prevents Muggles from entering. Methods of getting through the barrier without attracting notice include leaning casually against it until you push through and running at it full tilt, trying not to think about the painful crash that will follow if it somehow closes (see right).

In Fanfiction Edit

In fanfics this often is the place where the new student is introduced to Harry and his friends, or any other character the Suethor fancies.
