I read a script of the film Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in the web site: http://allbyourselves.wordpress.com/2011/01/07/harry-potter-and-the-half-blood-prince-movie-script/ and it's written that Fred and George Weasley sold a Love Potion called "Wonder Witch Love Potions" at their store Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes. Is that cannon? If so, should it be added to this text? Andre G. Dias (talk) 08:56, March 16, 2014 (Brazil)
Can a Love Potion work properly if one person brews it, but another gives it to the drinker? E.g. if Ron was given a potion by Parvati Patil, but the potion was brewed by Lavender Brown. Llama llama llama! (talk) 01:32, May 27, 2016 (UTC)
Fred and George
Do we know for sure that Fred and George invented some love potions? Canon tells us that they did not create all artickes they sold themselves. Some articles, like the Darkness powder, were bought from others, even imported.--Rodolphus (talk) 15:55, June 20, 2016 (UTC)
- Until you brought this up, I would have said yes - but, if you look at the WonderWitch label from MinaLima it says "Since 1952" which means the brand existed before the twins were born. (Note I don't think we have this label on the wiki if anyone can source it in one of the film companion books like Harry Potter Limited Edition - A Guide to the Graphic Arts Department: Posters, Prints, and Publications from the Harry Potter Films). So I have to say now it does not look like the WonderWitch love potions are their inventions. Nice work ferreting out the assumptions! --Ironyak1 (talk) 19:12, June 20, 2016 (UTC)
Behind the scenes
Earlier this year, someone added that children conceived through the use of love potions are rendered incapable of love. There's no citation, and nothing JK Rowling has said backs that up. Her entire statement is, "It was a symbolic way of showing that he came from a loveless union – but of course, everything would have changed if Merope had survived and raised him herself and loved him." Again, everything would have changed had Tom Riddle been raised by the mother who loved him. His inability to love had nothing to do with his parentage or circumstances of his conception and everything to do with how he was raised.
