Snape Shows A Rare Soft Side By Removing His Cloak
From former Redditor u/[deleted]:
In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), when Harry brings back Cedric's body, Snape covers him with his cloak, which Cedric's father then removes to look at his son. This is why he wasn't wearing it when they capture Barty Crouch Jr.Magical or not?
From Redditor u/bigbadbeardo:
In Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire (2005) Moody tells Harry about the Foe-Glass and reflections of Barty Crouch Sr appear, as Moody isn't actually Moody, he is Barty Crouch Jr.Magical or not?

Hagrid's Wand/Pink Umbrella Is A Testament To The Power Of The Elder Wand
From Redditor u/aaronitmar:
We know that in Hagrid's third year he was framed by Voldemort and subsequently expelled, with the result that his wand was snapped in half. He was, of course, allowed to keep the pieces... We learn in both Chamber of Secrets and Deathly Hallows that wand repair is difficult or impossible. The magic from a broken or 'repaired' wand will be feeble at best, and any moderate to powerful spells can cause the wand to fall apart again.
But Dumbledore had the Elder Wand, which we know can restore broken wands to a fully functioning state. So he repaired Hagrid's wand and hid it in the umbrella for use in picking up Harry...Magical or not?
