It occurred to me that Professor Trelawney is the root of all evil in the Harry Potter series!

She made the prophecy which made Voldemort go after Harry’s parents.

If she hadn’t applied for the Divination job, Dumbledore, and therefore snooping Snape, wouldn’t have heard her prophecy.

Snape wouldn’t have told Voldemort about the prophecy and caused him to decide it meant Harry Potter.

Voldemort wouldn’t have killed Lily and James, and tried to kill Harry.

Voldemort wouldn’t have inadvertently turned Snape against him because he killed Lily.

Sirius would never have died in the Ministry because Harry would never have heard about it through Voldemort’s obsession with hearing it all, and wouldn’t have been tricked into going there to retrieve it.

Lily wouldn’t have died trying to save Harry, and given him the protective spell created by her sacrifice.

Harry would never have been made an orphan and forced to live with the Dursleys.

If Trelawney hadn’t made the prophecy  about the one who could defeat Voldemort, Dumbledore would never have made her a professor, and then Harry wouldn’t have heard her make the second prophecy about Wormtail returning to his master.

If Harry hadn’t heard the second prophecy, he might not have discovered the truth about Sirius and Wormtail switching places as Secret Keeper for the Potters.

….and on and on it goes!

22 – Saddest death
Fred Weasley

There are a lot of deaths, but Fred’s is one of the saddest, especially with him being an identical twin which means George is a constant reminder and maybe that makes it harder to get over it. It’s horrible that Fred died just Percy came back to the Weasley family.

20 – Part you would change
I guess I didn’t really like the start of “The Goblet of Fire” when it tells you the story of the Riddles’ murders.

Obviously they don’t mention this in the film – they just show the graveyard and the old man being killed by Voldemort, but they don’t explain what it means!
