Response to How Well Do You Know The Harry Potter Books?:
I feel very strongly that it is mentioned prior to OotP that squibs cannot see dementors. The reason I feel this way is that I remember very clearly when I first read OotP that when Figg says she could see them, that it had already been mentioned that they could not. (I took Figg at her word, and thought I had just read a JK mistake, similar to how the order of James and Lily emerging from the wands was incorrect in early printings of GoF, and corrected in later printings). I remember that shock so clearly, but I don’t remember what book it would have been in. One of the first three, for sure, because those are the three I’m least familiar with. And likely the third, only because dementors play such a prominent role in PoA. Yet, no one anywhere on here, or anywhere else I search makes mention of this. I’m so sure I’m right, though. If someone could back me up on this, preferably with a quote, you truly would be my greatest friend for many years. Thanks!
