Re: Little Questions Answered v16.

Are Fred and George one year older than Ron, or two? I'm sure I could find the info on my own, but I'm just too laaaaaaaaaaazy.

Two years older. They were born in 1978 and Ron was born in 1980. And when they are collecting Harry to go to see the world cup word is around that Fred and George didn't get enough owls, so they were going in their sixth year as the trio was going in their forth.

Re: Little Questions Answered v16.

Two. When Harry and Ron start, they're in their third year already. Also, Mrs. Weasley complains in book four about them not getting enough O.W.L.s, so we can assume that the year before (Harry and Ron's third) was their fifth year.

Re: Little Questions Answered v16.

Just incase anyone else needs to know:

Helena Ravenclaw stole the diadem from her mother and ran off to Albania where it was hidden in the hollow of a tree, until Voldemort reclaimed it.

Flitwick's office is on the seventh floor and is the thirteeth window from the right of the West Tower. Dumbledore mentions it in PoA.

POA, Hermione's Secret 'Sirius is locked in Professor Flitwick's office on the seventh floor.Thirteenth window from the right of the West Tower.'

Re: Little Questions Answered v16.

I would be really happy if someone could explain this for me, cause I can´t get it out of my mind. In the last chapter of the last book, why hadn´t Harry offered Teddy to live with him before and why did he do it when Teddy is like one year from being an adult?

Re: Little Questions Answered v16.

Maybe before Teddy was of age he had to live with blood relations, but when he was of age he could choose for himself

Re: Little Questions Answered v16.

Here is what JKR said about Teddy's living situation:
J.K. Rowling and the Live Chat, Bloomsbury.com, July 30, 2007Tineke: Did teddy grow up living with his grandmother?
J.K. Rowling: Yes, Teddy was raised by Andromeda.
J.K. Rowling: However, unlike Neville, who was also raised by his grandmother
J.K. Rowling: Teddy had his godfather, Harry, and all his father's friends in the Order, to visit and stay with.

Also, Harry did not offer Teddy to live with his family in the Epilogue:
DH, Epilogue, Nineteen Years Later, Page 757, American, HB"He already comes round for dinner about four times a week," said Harry. "Why don't we just invite him to live with us and have done with it?"

I do not think Harry was being serious here, since Teddy was likely still living with Andromeda and, being of age, would soon be on his own.

Re: Little Questions Answered v16.

In CoS, Wood wakes Harry up at the crack of dawn to start the first Quidditch practice (which is interrupted by the Slytherins). How did Wood wake Alicia, Angelina and Katie up for the practice?

Perhaps he had told them the night before as he knew he wouldn't be able to get into the dormitory. Or he could've found another girl who may have been up to go and wake them.

I don't know for sure

I can see that happening, or zooming up to their window on his broomstick and rapping on the glass. In reality though, it was probably as Rush said, that he had told them the night before, though it does make me wonder why he didn't just tell Harry the night before as well.

Yes exactly! But something just crossed my mind ... how do the students all know when to wake up on time? Because alarm clocks wouldn't work, would they? Unless they have their own versions, like the wireless radio and the purple megaphones? But I have never heard of an alarm clock being used in the wizarding world ... unless I skipped over it? So how do they all wake up on time for breakfast and their lessons in the mornings!?

I honestly don't know? I mean I guess we can assume they had alarm clocks? Though everytime Harry wakes up...like on Christmas morning...it doesn't say he wakes up to the beeping of his alarm clock.

Maybe it's a wizard thing? Their wand zaps them awake?

Hmmm no I don't think so, I don't remember Harry ever waking up to an alarm clock at Hogwarts, only at the Dursleys. Harry has been woken up by Peeves, Dobby, Ron snoring, Wood and Hermione. But they can't account for every other day of the week.

There are alarm clocks that don't need electricity to run, although I suppose you young 'uns have never seen one. Muggles have to wind them up, but I'm sure wizards would have a self-winding version.

Prehaps as the Quidditch Captain he has access to the Gals Dorms or something like Hermione's Gold coin that the Gal players get so they can know when the captain wants them up ?
Or maybe there is a magical intercom system ,that allows the guys/Capt. to talk to the Gals Dorm rooms from the bottom of the stairs ?.

In HBP, when Harry used Levicorpus and woke Ron up by dangling him in the air, Ron told him that he'd rather he set the alarm next time. So it was indicated that they had alarm clocks. Probably the wind up kind or something magical.

Oh - and we also have this from DH.

DHThe Dursleys, who had listened to all of this with looks of utter incomprehension on their faces, jumped as a loud voice screeched, “Hurry up!” Harry looked all around the room before realizing that the voice had issued from Dedalus’s pocket watch.


So I would go with them having alarm clocks that were magical and told them it was time to get up.

Well, there is the Sonorus charm that Ludo Bagman used to magnify his voice when doing announcements for the World Cup and the tournament.

I'd say it's more likely that he either told them the night before or made arrangements for one of the other girls to wake them up. Actually, I could see Hermione already being up and studying at that hour.
