THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: How does all that dirt or whatever it is get on Hermione's pink hoodie?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: From all the activity she was doing, such as being flung around by the Whomping Willow, crawling through the tunnel, being in the Shrieking Shack, running away from Lupin (when he's in his werewolf form) and so on.

But where was it first seen?

It doesn't really need to be seen for it to happen. If it was gained from being hit over by the willow then they're not going to show a close up of the dirt transferring on to her clothes.

It's first really noticeable when they're inside the Shrieking Shack. Before then it was too dark to be seen.

The Viewing Party Combustion - S9-E21

Question: How come out of nowhere Leonard decides to not go to the roommate agreement meeting? I know he wouldn't want to but why just decide not to after about 13 years of these?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: He was probably sick of it by that point. He has complained many times about roommate agreement regulations.

Question: Why didn't Hermione cast immobilus on the Whomping willow when they were running after Ron after Sirius drags him into the shrieking shack? Or after it hit them back and they tried to get in themselves?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: They didn't know a simple magic spell would work on it. Students were forbidden to approach the tree because it was so dangerous. In the book, the Willow was turned "on" and "off" with a secret switch located at the base of the trunk. Only the Hogwarts teachers and some staff knew about it.

Question: Just before Sirius grabs Ron's leg, why didn't Harry and Hermione start running then? Why did they just stand still and watch?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Because they were confused and surprised by Sirius' sudden appearance while he was in his dog form. It took them a few moments to collect themselves and react to the situation.

Question: Madam Pomfrey grimly said that Ron would live. But what did the book mean by grimly? What kind of expression did Pomfrey have on her face?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: It would mean that the situation was serious and Pomfrey's expression reflected that, even though Ron was going to be all right.

Question: Is it just me or does Poe seem a bit more strict and tense in this movie? I understand it was a war but I just wanted to check?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: He seems a little more tense than the last two movies, but I think it's in keeping with the story. A lot was happening - Palpatine was back, there was an invasion in the planning, etc. It'd make sense for him to be tenser than usual.

Question: There is a deleted scene where Peter tells Ned he has to go after Vulture. Ned tries to convince him not to because he almost killed Peter last time. Is this set before or after Peter has his suit taken from him by Tony?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Question: There is a fanfic that I am looking for that is a version of Prisoner of Azkaban. I've been looking for it for a long time. The only helpful thing I can say is the 6th chapter is called "Harry protects Hermione." Does anyone know where I can find it?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: You could try fanfiction.net. It has fictional stories written by many people.

I have. That's where I first found it years ago.

Question: What did Liz mean when she told her dad not to grill Peter?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Since Peter is her date, she doesn't want her Dad to go overboard with questioning him and potentially make Peter uncomfortable and their date awkward.

Question: Is it just me or is Hermione's hair shorter in this movie?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: It's a little shorter and curlier. The bangs are also a little different. It's hardly surprising since a few months have passed from the end of the school year in HP2 and the start of HP3, just before the new school year begins. All the younger characters have changing hairstyles throughout the series.

Question: Why is Katniss so protective of Prim? I have only read the first book so maybe in future books it's explained?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: Besides Prim being her younger sister, when their father died, her mother basically shut down out of depression, leaving Katniss to raise Prim for the most part. She has a bond that goes beyond what some sisters might normally have.

Question: Why did Thor let Cap have some of his drink that he said mortal men can't have. I know that Cap's super soldier serum makes him stronger, but he's still human.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: By mortal men, he probably just means ordinary. Since Cap has super powers, Thor doesn't consider him ordinary (plus the we learn in Captain America: The First Avenger that his advanced metabolism prevents him from getting drunk). Since Thor also relents and allows the WWII veterans to partake in the drink as well, it's safe to assume he doesn't consider it to be deadly for humans to have.

Phaneron Premium member

Answer: Cap now has a superhuman metabolism, as shown in the first Cap movie when he was unable to get drunk after Bucky died.

Question: Why were the kids crying after Nick said all that after the car burned down. I get their feelings might have been hurt but with all the other stuff he said why would that of all things make them cry?

The Habitation Configuration - S6-E7

Question: I understand why Amy wouldn't like what Will said but wasn't she way ruder to him? She doesn't act like she did at the start so I'm confused.

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: There's a difference between Amy trying to get the best take for Fun with Flags and Wil flat out insulting her.

Question: Hermione couldn't understand why Ron wouldn't wear what his mother made him for Christmas but I am curious, was Hermione wearing what Mrs Weasley made for her when they were walking down the stairs?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: No, she's wearing her own sweater when going down the stairs.

raywest Premium member

Then why would she not get why Ron isn't wearing it when she isn't wearing her own gift from Mrs Weasley?

Ron has a long history of being embarrassed by his mother's rather odd homemade gifts. Unlike Hermione, because his family was poor, he had few options on what else he could wear. Hermione, being a guest, would not be expected to wear her gift at any particular time. She also thinks Ron is over-reacting.
