    Ron And Hermione Barely Spent Less Than Two Weeks Apart From 'Goblet of Fire' On

    From Redditor u/OwlPostAgain:

    Hermione and Ron have barely spent a fortnight apart since the beginning of GoF. They live in the same dormitory, they eat meals together, they have most of their classes together, they hang out in the common room together, etc.

    While obviously Hermione studies alone in the library and they both spend some time in their individual dormitories, they pretty much spend the vast majority of their leisure time together. Even when Harry is off doing his own thing, he usually comes back to find them together.

    They've spent like 2 months of the last 36 months apart.

    Tonks And Snape's Patronus's Were Deeply Affected By Love

    From Redditor u/relativistictrain:

    It's probably linked to the memories you use to create the patronus, and the things you want most. For instance, Tonks & Snape's patronuses were strongly affected by who they wanted/wanted to be with.

    Bellatrix Was Obsessively In Love With Voldemort

    From Redditor u/intheirbadnessreign:

    I'm pretty sure that Rowling stated in an interview that Bellatrix was madly in love with Voldemort, and that was why she was so psychotically devoted to him. It was never returned, of course.

    Draco's Future Wife Astoria Also Had To Fight Through Pure-Blood Ideals

    From Redditor u/AdorableOctopus:

    Draco married the younger sister of a fellow Slytherin. Astoria Greengrass, who had gone through a similar (though less violent and frightening) conversion from pure-blood ideals to a more tolerant life view, was felt by Narcissa and Lucius to be something of a disappointment as a daughter-in-law. They had had high hopes of a girl whose family featured on the ‘Sacred Twenty-Eight’, but as Astoria refused to raise their grandson Scorpius in the belief that Muggles were scum, family gatherings were often fraught with tension.
