I was bored earlier so I decided to read my copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (because Sadie still hasn’t mailed my Sorcerer’s Stone or Chamber of Secrets back to me yet…) and I came across a passage that I hadn’t really ever paid that much attention to before.
Christmas was coming. One morning in mid-December, Hogwarts woke to find itself covered in several feet of snow. The lake froze solid and the Weasley twins were punished for bewitching several snowballs so that they followed Quirrell around, bouncing off the back of his turban.
-from Chapter Twelve, The Mirror of Erised
Knowing what I know now, this made me to a double take. Quirrell has He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named sharing his body. His face is on the back of Quirrell’s head.
The Weasley twins were smacking Voldemort in the face with fucking snowballs.
My GOD. Fred and George just got 20% more badass. Which is impressive, since they are in my top ten of HP characters. And I know I’m not the first person to discover this but it was just so amazing to me for some reason I had to share it.
