      Yikes. I’ll never understand the American viewpoints on sex. It’s all over the media, used to sell so much. But god forbid you educated a child or teen on what they’re seeing… just let the media do it that seems fucking brilliant. I mean I get it’s an awkward talk but deal with it and do it properly (or give it your honest best shot). I was lucky that my mom was really good with the talk. And they did a good job in school too, though I’d already learned a lot at home but I did get further information at school. We got the very basics really mainly about puberty in grade 4. Grade 8 they got into a lot more detail, but there was no fearmongering or anything. No “don’t have sex you’ll get pregnant and die”, it was all about most and least effective birth control. And in grade 11 we had a bit of recap kind of thing and had people come into the class to share their experiences with sexuality and teen pregnancies, not to scare us (well maybe a little bit) but just to give us real stories to relate to. I survived, all my classmates survived. As far as I know, nobody is mentally scarred from life for it. It didn’t turn everybody into crazed sex addicts. But it taught us all how to be safe when we decided to become sexually active, whatever age that was. Because face it, people are going to start having sex whenever the hell they want (especially when it’s so promininant in the media and makes it seem like sex is all that matter) and you can’t stop them, so you might as well educate them.

      #5 I kind of felt like in book 1 “the wand chooses the wizard” was a pretty damn good clue as to why a hand-me-down wand wouldn’t work as well, so I picked up on that with Ron pretty easily. I honestly don’t remember reading that Neville wasn’t using his own wand either though (my memory is so crappy though). Unless it’s a regional thing, idk, I wouldn’t consider December 31st mid-winter either. That’s approximately 10 days into a 3 month season, that is not mid. But I do know different people consider the start of winter differently, so maybe it’s a thing in the UK to call it winter when it gets cold? But I never would have picked up and that and still just struggle to see that because that’s not at all mid winter where I am (feels like, yes. But it’s not).

      Yes and yes. I’m much more concerned about people who think baths are a bad thing than those who enjoy them. I mean, you do you, but just because you don’t take baths doesn’t mean others can’t enjoy them. The vast majority of the time I shower, but baths are sooooo relaxing. A shower doesn’t relax the muscles like a bath and it’s so nice to just light some candles, fill the tub with pretty smelling bubble bath (Yeah! I *still* use that too!), put on a TV show or some music or something and escape to a quiet private place. Why anyone would think people *wouldn’t* still be into that, is beyond me.

      I wear *real* boots. Uggs are not winter boots. I’ve had a couple pair of Ugg type boots (I won’t say knock off because they’re still good quality and iirc the brand existed and made the boots before ugg did) and they’re really not appropriate for winter. They’re warm, and no I didn’t have problems with my feet getting wet. But they are not designed for snow and ice. I have boots that actually have proper traction for snow and ice and are warm. Comfort suffers a bit but they’re not bad, and it’s better than falling and hurting myself plus they have more support so long term wear is actually more comfortable because my feet have the proper support which is so SO important. Bonus points, they’re not UGGly as hell. They’re actually pretty nice. And they were significantly cheaper than uggs. And they’ve lasted me YEARS. I just turned my ugglike boots into slippers after a couple wears because they just weren’t appropriate outside footwear for me, and really they’re so ugly I didn’t want to be seen in them (but they were so comfy and I really miss them, as slippers).

      How do you know how bad his scar hurts or doesn’t hurt? Is it your scar? Can you feel the pain from it because it’s part of your body? No. You don’t know how much it hurts. You don’t get to judge that. Also, Harry Potter isn’t a TV show, so I can’t take you siriusly when you can’t tell the difference between a book and movie series and TV series. Save it for a book and/or movie characters list. (It really should be a TV show tho…)
