Hey guys, I just wanted to say that your podcast really helps me to fall asleep every night. I tend to fret a lot and this really helps me. I also enjoy it for general listening too. Just wanted to thank you, you guys aware great 😉


There was a lot of discussion about Sirius and his reaction to Priori Incantatem, so I’ll give my interpretation of that moment! I always thought that Priori Incantatem is just an actual spell that you can do, like you can say the words and the wand will show you what spells it has done recently, so I interpreted Sirius’s reaction as just meaning that he is aware of that spell, but not necessarily that he knew why that spell would be happening at the meeting of the twin core wands. So I guess that’s why I didn’t think it was weird that he didn’t understand that part of it, but that he does know the spell itself, and since Dumbledore is the smarty-pants he’s the one who understood that what Harry was seeing during the meeting of the wands was Priori Incantatem in action and could explain it to Harry and Sirius. I don’t know if I’m the only person in the world who interpreted it that way though.
