There must be a special way of making a portrait or a spell that is cast upon it, I suppose. I know that the photographs are essentially just the same as Muggle ones, in that they capture an image, but in this case they capture a short sequence of events - done by brewing the still-photo in a specific potion (mentions that somewhere in CoS).

Re: Unanswered Questions

I have read a ton of these posts now and I am wondering why no one has asked this question:

what exactly was the "little baby-like thing" under the bench in King's Cross when Harry "dies" and is talking with Dumblydore (lol)

I am under the impression that is part of Voldy's soul, but I could be mistaken.

Ideas?

Re: Unanswered Questions

Why did the students refer to Hagrid as just Hagrid, instead of Professor Hagrid when he took on Care of Magical Creatures?

Old habits die hard. He was always Hagrid before, it would be hard to suddenly start calling him "professor." Even Albus "Professor Snape, Harry" Dumbledore called him Hagrid. It's also possible Hagrid didn't care for the formality.

It's his very damaged soul, what's left of it, after he made all those horcruxes.

Maybe they still saw him more as a gamekeeper? And I don't think Hagrid was very fussy about it, either. Somewhere in GoF he says to Harry "since when have I been Professor", or something like that!

Hagrid wasn't too strict about it, didn't really enforce it.

It has been asked. Look here:
The Creature at King's Cross

Making oneself familiar with the search thingy does pay. We have lots of interesting discussions here.


ETA: After consulting some other staff members I have decided to discontinue this thread now. It does not seem possible to keep up the purposed difference between this and the LQA thread in the Stone. And we do not need two similar questions threads.

So, please post your questions in Little Questions Answered v16.. Also those questions which should have been posted here.
