I propose to move this to "Anti-Dementor Lessons." This would be in the mold of "Harry & Dumbledore's Lessons" which is a very similar event. --Hcoknhoj 08:56, January 22, 2010 (UTC)

Another possibility would be "Harry and Lupin's lessons", to match the existing Harry Potter and Albus Dumbledore's private lessons article. The only problem with "Patronus (class)" is that unlike the Apparition (class) or Potions (class), these were private lessons and not an official Hogwarts subject. - Nick O'Demus 09:11, January 25, 2010 (UTC)

I would support this move as well. --Hcoknhoj 21:17, January 25, 2010 (UTC)


Did anybody else notice that in the movie, it looked like the lessons take place in Dumbledore's office? Are they in Classroom 4F in the movie too? -- GrouchMan (Send an owl then scram!!) 23:13, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Actually they were in the Astronomy Tower. The problem is that they used the same set as Dumbledore's office instead of filming in another. --El Profeta Vespertino 17:57, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

Harry's first corporeal patronus

It was written here that his first corporeal patronus was at the Quidditch game where the Dracco and his friends dressed up like dementors to scare harry, but in the book it doesn't say anything about his patronus being corporeal. I would have thought that if that had in fact been the first time he produced a stag patronus, that when he was near the lake with Sirius and saw the stag patronus coming towards him saving his life that he would have recognized his own patronus and not thought it was his father. I was under the impression that his first corporeal patronus was when he went back in time and saved himself sirius and hermione from the dementors at the lake. I was going to just change this, but I thought maybe it states it somewhere I haven't read or in a video game or something..... --BachLynn23 20:38, July 25, 2010 (UTC)

Remember Lupin and Harry were talking at the end, and Lupin says he remembered what "form" it took, meaning it was corporeal. --JKochRavenclawcrest(Owl Me!) 21:41, July 25, 2010 (UTC)
At the end of the book him and Lupin only talk about the corporeal patronus Harry did while fighting off the dementors at the lake. Lupin asks Harry to tell him about the patronus, harry asks how Lupin knew, Lupin tells him that "what else could have driven the dementors back". Then all it says is that harry told him about what happened, and lupin confirms that James's animagus was a stag and that his nickname was prongs. I still can't find anything in the book stating that Harry had already conjured a corporeal patronus at the Quidditch game where Malfoy and his cronies pulled the prank.
