Re: what did the Basilisk eat? Maybe it was eating rats, etc. When Harry, Ron and Lockhart landed at the end of the tunnel they found the floor “littered with small animal bones.” a building as large as Hogwarts must have a lot of vermin.

I am so glad that the right ‘Presents’ is now established thanks to your reviewer!

I read all three before coming here to listen. You can download the PDF for free online. I think my favourite of the three was Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies. Lupin’s story was heartbreaking and I loved reading about Kettleburn and his contribution to the Second Wizarding World. .

I really liked all of the criticism towards the books. I’m glad that I didn’t pay for the books because there’s a lot of copy and paste from Pottermore. I didn’t even do much exploring of the site but after some poking around, there’s a disturbing amount that’s the same, such as the Lupin part.

I know exactly what Alice is talking about regarding the rumour that Lockhart was inspired by her ex-husband.

It’s strange to think that Umbridge and McGonagall share the same Patronous.

Yay! Thank you! I’ve been wanting to take a look at it but my mom would never let me pay for something like that. Thank you so much! 😁
