WARNING: If you have not read the Harry Potter books (or seen the movies) do not read on. The amount of time they spent in the forrest in book seven book, read the whole thing in a day. But as long as we’re revising the books, here are a few more suggestions.
It added another layer to Ron, who until this point mostly got on my nerves. They spend so much time trying to hurt one another that it’s nearly impossible to figure out who to root for (I err on the side of Hermione almost always.) “Well yeah,” said Ron. Armed with ‘Twelve Fail-Safe Way to Charm Witches’ and a little less waffling, it looks like Ron and Hermione are finally gravitating towards one another—then the worst happens at the trio is thrown into war and sent on the run.
Ron and Hermione are back to their push and pull in this book, but nothing too definitive is happening between them. He hesitated for a moment, then said, “Is Hermione really going out with Mc Laggen? “They were at Slughorn’s party together, but I don’t think it went that well.” Ron looked slightly more cheerful as he delved deeper into his stocking. There are, however some exceptionally cute moments before they have to leave the Burrow.
But the bigger problem was that Harry ended up with Ginny, who, sadly, had no personality. Ron inherited Scabbers, Percy’s old rat, when he went to school. So, logically, why wouldn’t Fred or George (or Harry, for that matter) have been able to see Pettigrew hanging out in Ron’s room for years? The most obvious question is: if wizards can travel through time, why couldn’t someone — Harry, Dumbledore, literally anyone — go back in time and stop Voldemort back when he was young Tom Riddle? Fans kept challenging the logic of the time turner, so eventually J. Rowling had to destroy them all just to shut critics up.
Seriously, name a personality trait for Ginny Weasley besides “nice.” You can’t. Even if Fred and George didn’t recognize the name Pedigrew as the man Sirius Black supposedly murdered, wouldn’t it still have been odd to have seen a stranger they didn’t know following their brother around all the time on the map? Harry not being able to see the thestrals You see someone die, you see thestrals. Then why can’t Harry see thestrals in the carriages on the way to Hogwarts in the first two books? Seeing Sedrick Diggory die in shouldn’t have been any different. How do wizards write newspaper articles or communicate with their foreign friends visiting for the Quidditch World Cup or maintain a wizard economy? They saved Buckbeak using the time turner, so why not stop Voldemort using it too?
Cut out that third of the book, and you have yourself a tight finale…except for that bizarre Dumbledore scene at the end. Ginny Yes, it was a crime that Harry and Hermione didn’t end up together. Fred and George not noticing Peter Pettigrew sleeping in Ron’s bed every night on the Marauder’s map Their first year, Fred and George Wesley stole the Marauder’s map, which showed everyone’s location in Hogwarts. After that you are an adult in the world who can choose from a handful of professions: you can teach, work for the government, own a shop, play Quidditch, train dragons, work for the paper and…yep, that’s pretty much it. The time turner problem Over the years, fans have repeatedly poked holes the whole time turner plot line. Would stopping Tom Riddle —or even stopping Bellatrix from hurting someone a few minutes ago break the rules? Which begs another question: what the heck was Mc Gonagall doing giving such a powerful tool to a second year anyway?
