+672 You still have a lot of unanswered questions about Harry Potter, like who took Voldemort's body after he killed James and Lily, where do Hogwarts teachers sleep and shower or why no staff member seems to be married, amirite?

(Harry Pervert): Because someone would have had sex with Snape. Right.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Snape has more fangirls than any of the other characters.

Voldemort's body was destroyed after he killed James and Lily, so he was just this wandering spirit that then found Quirrel. There's probably like a teachers lounge somewhere, like the common rooms the students have. All the teachers are such hard workers, that they don't have time for relationships until they are out of school, like Lupin. Except for Snape, who is a heart broken man who will never find love again. *Please note that they above is merely speculation*

(Prof_E):You know, that first question has been bugging me for years, because if what you say is true (and I think it’s written in one of the books, but I’m not sure), that means that the Avada Kedavra curse that rebounded on Voldemort destroyed his body and spared his soul, but it’s supposed to do the exact opposite…

by Anonymous 13 years ago

But his soul couldn't be completely destroyed because of his horcruxes, so I guess that's why his body was destroyed instead...

by Anonymous 13 years ago

I don't know, it's all really confusing, I hope she explains it on Pottermore.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

The part of his soul that was in his body was destroyed, and his body was destroyed in the resulting explosion.

by Anonymous 12 years ago

(Prof_E):But let’s say his body and soul were simply separated. That means that the body was left behind, and that someone had to dispose of it before it was found. Meanwhile, the piece of soul contained by the body was left to possess different animals in order to survive. But why didn’t it just disappear, like everyone else’s does when they die? Of course he had Horcruxes, but according to Dumbledore, if a Dark Wizard was killed, only the pieces of his soul concealed in objects would survive, not the actual piece left in his body.

Well, considering that the spell only rebounded because of Lily's love, it probably didn't have the same affect as a regular killing spell, or when someone with a wand rebounded it.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Thank you, I was going to answer the same thing. But the last thing isn't necessarily true; it's not because of that, maybe they just don't want to get married or didn't find the right person. It's not just the teachers who are unmarried, a lot of other wizards aren't either. And the only reason Lupin got married after he stopped being a teacher, isn't because he stopped being a teacher, but because he found the right woman in the 5th book.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Yeah, I wasn't being completely serious about the last one, but all the teachers are extremely dedicated to their students. Except the dark arts teachers...

There is a staff lounge which appears multiple times throughout the series. ex: where filch cleans snape's wound from fluffy, where harry and pals fight the boggart in a wardrobe in his third year, and where harry and ron go late in the second book, also seeing the aforementioned wardrobe.

In the first movie, it seemed like Prof. McGonagal (or however you say it) and Dumbledore were in a relationship... just sayin'.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

But J. K. Rowling has revealed that Dumbledore's gay, I think he even had a relationship with Grindelwald.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Minerva needed a gay best friend. Who else would tell her if her hat went will with her robes?

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Yeah, but BEFORE she revealed him to be gay, I think a lot of readers expected them to get together someday. Especially when they were dancing at the Yule Ball together, you know?

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Not me... I always saw him as sort of solitary and celibate, which is really what he was after the whole Grindelwald heartbreak. Coming to terms with the fact that the love of your life is evil as you're watching him torture your brother, possibly kill your sister, and attempt to start a genocide can really make a man give up on the whole idea of "romantics".

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Wait, he's gay? Since when?

by Anonymous 13 years ago

I always liked their relationship, and I used to think that McGonagall had a bit of a crush on Dumbledore. Who wouldn't, with that long, sexy beard?

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Yeah, I do agree that it's not unlikely that McGonagall had a bit of a crush on Dumbledore, just because she clearly admired him enough.

I'm just gonna guess and say quirrell took voldies body considering he fused to the back of his head, the teachers probably have some hidden door in their offices like the room of requirement, and who doesn't love the single life?

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Sorry if I'm spoiling anything, but as said in the 6 book, Voldemort had 6 horcruxes. Therefore, since Horcruxes require you to split your soul in a malicious act of evil, the power of love overcame the horcrux's protection of evil. Therefore splitting his soul out of his body, releasing his spirit to roam the Earth, alone. His body was still intact, however, reduced to a feeble state. His wandering soul met Quirrel and convinced him to join the death eaters, as we know in the first book. Then, since Quirrel got turned to dust, along with voldemort, Pettigrew went around, searching for Voldemort after he was freed in the 3rd book. After that, he made an elixir to bring Voldemort back to life. At least, that's what I assumed.

COUGH COUGH seven Horcruxes, the last Horcrux is Harry himself COUGH COUGH

My questions are: ~What was the relationship between Draco and Harry after the 7th book? ~Do wizards have "higher education" like college or do they just have vocational training? ~What has Aberforth been up to all this time (we don't even meet him until the end of book 7) ~What happens to the Dursleys? ~What caused Regulus to leave the Death Eaters and betray Voldemort? ~Kind of random but to portraits of peoples have personalities and IQ? do they retain the memories of their actual person? even if they're dead? for example the portrait of professor dumbledore in the headmaster's office?

by Anonymous 13 years ago

~JKR has said that she never meant for them to become great friends or that Draco become a great guy after choosing not to side with the Death Eaters, so I don't think they hung out on weekends or anything. But they were no longer enemies. ~Not sure... the series seems to suggest that they just have vocational training at the Ministry and stuff. ~I'm pretty sure Aberforth was just chilling as the barman of the Hog's Head. Also, he was in the original Order of the Phoenix. ~Apparently, Dudley and Harry were never close, but they remained on "Christmas card terms". JKR actually considered that Dudley have a wizard child, but decided that no wizard blood could survive contact with Uncle Vernon's blood. ~Still a mystery! A lot of fanfiction speculation on the matter though... maybe we'll find out on Pottermore? ~That's really interesting... I'd like to find out more. http://www.accio-quote.org/articles/2005/0705-tlc_mugglenet-anelli-1.htm

The question about Regulus was answered. He freaked out when he found out how far it was going and tried to back out. As Sirius said, you don't just hand in your resignation to Voldemort.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Well, yeah, but "freaked out" isn't that specific. I'd be interested to hear the full story. And besides, that's just Sirius' interpretation. Sirius didn't know that Regulus took the locket. He thought Regulus just chickened out and was therefore killed.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

yea i know that part..id like a more detailed version...i guess this will always be left to imagination though because at this point both Regulus and Voldemort are dead.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

True.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Regulus left the Death Eaters because Voldemort wanted to kill Kreacher by testing the security of the locket horcrux on him. It was when Regulus found out what Voldemort had done to Kreacher that he changed sides.

Am I the only one who questions what happens when muggle students like Hermione just kind of "disappear" out of muggle school districts all together? Or how the wizarding world is concealed, not Hogwarts, but like the Weasley house and others. Is there like another realm that's invisible? Or does what that shrunken head in the third movie said apply to houses, about muggles not using their eyes and noticing things?

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Yeah, I wondered that too. I guess their parents probably just say they're homeschooled or something. What I always wondered was, didn't Hermione have any muggle-friends? Because there's never any mention of any but I find it hard to believe she didn't have a single friend growing up, or that she would totally drop them when she found out she was a witch.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Well she didn't have any friends at Hogwarts at first, right? Because she wasn't a very likeable person, really. My guess is that if she did have any Muggle friends before going to Hogwarts, they weren't exceedingly close.

Boarding school? Technically they aren't lying.

by Anonymous 13 years ago

Apparently in England its pretty common practice to send your kids to boarding school, so you could probably just rattle off the name of some obscure school, and on the off chance that someone you know also has a child who goes there you can just pass it off as them not having any classes together.
