THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this week Question: What exactly is the relationship between Jane and Darcy? Are they friends? Because Jane doesn't seem to like her much.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this week Answer: Darcy is Jane's intern. If I remember correctly, Darcy is the only person that applied for Jane's intern position, despite majoring in a different field altogether. Jane does like Darcy, but Darcy tends to have an overbearing personality, which tends to get on Jane's nerves.

New this week Question: If the Wormwoods are moving to Guam to escape from the police, why move to Guam, a U.S territory, where the Speedboat salesmen or whatever can easily find them?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this week Answer: It's a joke, because they are too stupid to know that Guam is a territory of the United States.

Matilda (1996)

New this week Question: One of the cops said Matilda would end up in a federal orphanage once Harry was in federal prison, but can't her mother take care of her? She seems to have no idea that Harry's a criminal, and also where is the evidence that the mother is involved?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this week Answer: She knows. Listen to her and Harry after their TV explodes: "I told you that was a cheap set." "It's not a cheap set, it's a stolen set!" She knows that Harry is a criminal.

Matilda (1996)

New this week Question: What exactly has Harry done to have the FBI watching him for ages?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this week Answer: He has been receiving and selling stolen car parts.

New this month Question: Why didn't Hermione and Harry take Ron with them to save Sirius and Buckbeak? His leg wasn't that bad anymore.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: His leg was not healed enough to go with them and would have slowed them down. He was still laid up in bed when Harry and Hermione went back in time. Hermione even says, "Sorry, Ron, but seeing as you can't walk..."

New this month Question: Would Mrs Weasley's boggart have eventually shown Hermione's dead body as well? I know she's not family but neither is Harry, yet his was shown?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: Mrs. Weasley certainly liked Hermione, but she did not consider her the same as she did Harry. Hermione had a family whereas Harry was an orphan, and Mrs. Weasley was a mother-like figure to him. It's unlikely the boggart would have shown Hermione's corpse, at least at this point. That would have changed after Hermione became her daughter-in-law, although Voldemort was dead by then.

raywest Premium member

New this month Answer: While we will never know for sure, it's safe to assume that it would since the boggart shows your worst fear. Mrs Weasley loves all her family, and is often shown to consider Harry and Hermione as part of her family.

New this month Question: Katniss said to Peeta, "I have my sister", the night before the games. But why did she mention Prim in that conversation? What did she have to do with Peeta wanting to show the capitol that they don't own him?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: Katniss means she has to be careful of how she behaves, not openly showing defiance, because the capitol can retaliate against her by harming Prim. That's how Haymitch lost his family.

New this month Question: I don't understand why Lucius never looked for Voldemort, when he was one of his top followers up until now?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: To avoid being sent to Azkaban, he claimed that he had been placed under the Imperius Curse. The curse makes anyone who had been subjected to it to follow any order given by the person who cast it. If he had gone looking for Voldemort, then his lie of being placed under the Imperius Curse would be exposed and he'd be in trouble.

New this month Question: Why were the Hunger Games invented? Was it to do with District 13 defying the capitol?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: The games were punishment for a long-ago rebellion against the Capitol which resulted in District 13 being destroyed. The games provide entertainment for the Capitol, re-enforces the Capitol's power over the districts, and reminds citizens of their ancestors' lack of remorse for the failed rebellion. The districts must continually pay retribution to the Capitol by sacrificing two children each year.

New this month Question: Since Lily is a muggle born, why did Voldemort offer to recruit her 3 times as well as James? He hates muggle borns. And why not kill her when she refused before when he set out to kill Harry? Also, why did he offer to let her live just cause Snape requested it?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: Voldemort more than likely saw Lily as a valuable bargaining chip. JK Rowling revealed in an interview that Voldemort always planned on killing James (which is why his death did not count as a sacrificial love). The reason Voldemort agreed to Snape's pleas to offer Lily a chance to live, is because he rewards his followers (always at a cost, however). Voldemort likely agreed only because he probably thought he could use Lily as leverage to ensure Snape was at his mercy.

New this month Answer: Voldemort may have only wanted to recruit James Potter, a pure-blood, but could not have done that without also recruiting Lily, a Muggle-born and James' wife. Voldemort could have disposed of Lily later, if he so chose.

New this month Question: I know Kreacher hates Sirius, but as Regulus died to bring Voldemort down, like Harry said, isn't that a betrayal to Regulus' memory? Going to Voldemort with information he could use? Especially as Kreacher nearly died thanks to Voldemort.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: Kreacher's thinking is linear and isolated. He didn't only serve Regulus, but the entire House of Black, who were Slytherins, pure-bloods, and loyal to Voldemort. Kreacher has not yet realigned his thinking, and it is Harry, his new master, whose continued kindness to him, that eventually changes his belief's and allegiance.

New this month Question: I've heard that Lucius was right in Voldemort's inner circle so why is he treated even worse than Pettigrew?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: In addition, Lucius is directly responsible for the destruction of his first horcrux, the diary, for the frivolous reason of trying to discredit Arthur Weasley.

Greg Dwyer

Voldemort needed Lucius to smggle the Diary Horcrux into Hogwarts so that "Tom Riddle" (Voldemort) could release and control the basilisk. Lucius slipped it into Ginny's cauldron. He may have wanted to discredit Arthur Weasley, but he also needed an innocent student to act as Riddle's accomplice. Ginny just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

raywest Premium member

Except Voldemort was still in hiding in Albania when Lucius did this. He never told Lucius to give it to Ginny.

Greg Dwyer

As I mentioned, Ginny just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Lucius took advantage of an opportunity to use her to get the Diary into Hogwarts rather than as an act to discredit Arthur. He couldn't risk giving it to Draco, who he would not have trusted to carry out the mission.

raywest Premium member

New this month Answer: Lucius fell out of favor with the Dark Lord after he had failed to retrieve the prophecy (about him and Harry) that was stored at the Ministry of Magic. Voldemort thereafter treated him badly, continually humiliated him, and intended to kill Draco to further punish Lucius.

New this month Question: Kreacher says he betrayed his master by not being able to destroy the locket but wouldn't betrayal be refusing to destroy the locket after Regulus told him to?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: Kreacher did not have the ability to destroy the locket horcrux which is why he believed he failed his master. Only a few magical objects (Gryffindor's sword, the basilisk fang, fiend fire, etc.) had the power to destroy a horcrux.

New this month Question: Since Voldemort didn't know house elves could have apparated in and of the cave, why did he need Kreacher to test the defences? Why not just have Regulus?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: As you have pointed out, Voldemort didn't know Kreacher could apparate in and out of the cave because house elves have their own magic that wizards do not. Voldemort's arrogance led him to many oversights, this being one of them. Because Voldemort considers house elves to be nothing more than vermin, he would rather sacrifice them instead of a (to his knowledge) loyal death eater who could potentially aid him in the future.

New this month Question: Why did Voldemort kill Thicknesse?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

New this month Answer: There was no reason other than Voldemort's cruelty was spontaneous and unpredictable, and he had no feeling for or loyalty to anyone, even those who faithfully served him. If someone even slightly displeased him, showed weakness, or failed him in any way, Voldemort would kill or horribly punish them, depending on his mood at the time. Thicknesse just happened to speak up when Voldemort was particularly displeased, resulting in his death.

Question: Is it true that J.K. Rowling originally intended for Hermione to have a muggle sister?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Yes. J.K. Rowling was going to give Hermione a younger sister who was a muggle. However, by the time "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" came out, she felt that it was too late.

The Karate Kid (2010)

Question: Why did Cheng present the trophy to Dre and why did they all bow to Mr. Han?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Because Dre has finally earned Chengs respect. The other Fighting Dragons bowed to Mr. Han because in China bowing is shown as a sign of respect as they see that he is a better teacher and a kinder master then Master Li.

Question: When they were hiding behind the pumpkin patch, what was the noise that made Hermione turn around?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Hermione heard a twig snap behind her. It was the time-traveling Hermione, who was hiding in the trees with the "other" Harry. They are waiting to steal Buckbeak in order to save him from execution. When Hermione heard the sound, she started to say, "I thought I just saw..." then abruptly stopped. She must have realised that it was her alternate self, and not wanting Harry or Ron to know, then dismissed it as being nothing.

raywest Premium member

Answer: She heard buckbeak scratching at the ground.
