The magical landscape of Hogwarts is often thought of as a place full of spells, triumph over evil, and powerful friendships, but it also has its fair share of strife, especially when it comes to its female characters. Not all of these sullen moments are easy to spot, but fans online have uncovered some of these small, heartbreaking details for all of us to shed a tear over. For example, in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, after Narcissa makes the Unbreakable Vow, she retains a permanent scar on her hand. In Order of the Phoenix, you can see all the hope drain from Ginny's face when she learns that Harry is excited by Cho's affection. Some of these details even show up in characters' appearances! In Goblet of Fire, Hermione changes her haircut after being self-conscious about it looks in Prisoner of Azkaban.
