1. None of the books had the word "wand" in the title.

  2. Opps. Silly me. I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed.

  3. In the first book, Dumbledore wanted to test Harry, and he figured out that Quirrell wanted the stone, so he and some of the teachers tried to test Harry by setting things up for him to get the stone. They also predicted that he would bring his friends. After getting past the dog together, there was a special tasks set up for each of them to do. Harry had to fly on a broom and catch a key. Ron had to solve a chess puzzle. Hermione had to solve a potion riddle, but she also had to figure out how to get past the devil's snare and she had a bit more trouble with that.

  4. OMG, I’m so tired of hearing this. Why does everyone assume Ginny got no say? Whose to say Albus Severus wasn’t her stupid idea?

  5. She lost fewer people in her life then Harry, and her brothers probably took all the names then she wanted to use. For those reasons, I wouldn't be surprised if Ginny had insisted on Harry getting a larger say in their children's names then her.

  6. No, but I remember playing it fifteen years ago.

  7. I don't know. This is only one side of the story.

  8. In each interaction we see between Lily and Petunia, Lily seems to be using Petunia's rudeness as an excuse to act all stuck up toward her. Petunia seems to have started it but, seeing as it would obviously really suck to have a sibling who had magical powers that you didn't, I'm not sure if that even matters.

  9. Cue Harry the Hufflepuff and Neville rethinking his decision to insist on Gryffindor

  10. Neville didn't insist on Gryffindor. When he got placed in Gryffindor he screamed, and ran out of the room.

  11. I've ridden on an airplane two times. One time, there was lots to see out the window, and my father and I both stared out the window for the entire trip. The second time, it was too cloudy to see anything, so we pulled a tray down and played card games.

  12. I've been working on a revised/extended version of a story that multiple readers said was too fast and sometimes seemed more like an outline. Any feedback would be awesome!

  13. Harry was absolutely in the right to spy on Draco. He had plenty of evidence that Draco was attempting to carry out a mission for Voldemort! Anyone in his place would have tried to figure out what Draco was doing

  14. Well, you're probably right about that. I just find it hard to justify when it ended so horribly.

  15. Harry tried to warn Dumbledore, and Dumbledore told him to forget it because Dumbledore is never honest with anyone about anything. Harry had no confidence that his suspicions had been taken seriously or that any action was being taken to stop Draco. Furthermore, Dumbledore himself later admits that he underestimated Draco and didn’t think it possible that he would succeed in bringing Death Eaters into Hogwarts, while Harry took the threat seriously from the start. All through the book he is the only one who realises that Draco is a credible threat, so it’s natural he would feel like it was down to him to do something about it

  16. Well, you make some good points. He still should have gotten in some trouble though. Exspelliarmus you idiot!

  17. I never picked up on that. It's a good theory though.

  18. Do you mean you don't want a wedding? You can get married in a courthouse, with no guests.

  19. No, but I have an aunt who I suspect is.

  20. They would have to have prior knowledge that Hedwig with Sirius at the time. I doubt Hedwig hangs around longer than an hour waiting for a possible reply.

  21. Also, I don't think they knew that Harry and Sirius were in contact.

  22. Yes this is right. I don't like when people say point blank "the Sorting Hat decides based on what qualities you value," because that's not completely true either, and JKR has never confirmed that. It's complex.

  23. Hermione was always very chivalrous though.

  24. I liked the first book, but I actually thought the second book was a little better.

  25. I don't think he'd do that after the trial ended in his favor. Although he's kind of a reckless idiot, so maybe he would.

  26. I suspect that they were nicer to him before he got old enough to show signs of magic, and ask questions about his parents, but we'll never really know.
