Ronald Weasley explains the source of his arachnophobia.[src]

This spell transfigures a teddy bear into a giant spider. Fred Weasley used this spell on Ronald Weasley's teddy bear in 1983 or 1984 in revenge for the latter breaking his toy broomstick. Ronald Weasley developed a severe case of arachnophobia due to this event.[1]

Behind the scenes Edit

  • Fred was only about five years old when he cast this spell. It´s most likely that this was a case of unintentional wandless magic caused by Fred's anger.
