Hermione in 7th year

One of the "Did you know"s said she was the only one of the trio who returned to Hogwarts to complete their seventh year. But she didn't... Did she? 9 doors 13:38, November 21, 2009 (UTC)

J.K. Rowling said in an interview that Hermione went back to Hogwarts after the war to properly finish her education and get her NEWTS. Harry and Ron went straight on to the Auror Department to help Kingsley round up any Death Eaters who weren't caught in the Battle of Hogwarts. - Nick O'Demus 12:14, November 25, 2009 (UTC)

Harry Potter survived the Killing Curse twice

I don't understand the method for counting.

If you count the number of times the killing curse was shot at Harry, it's way more than two (I can think of half a dozen right off). However, there were 4 times where it should have struck and killed him:

1) Infant

2) At end of Goblet Of Fire

3) Twice At End Of Deathly Hallows

If we're counting the times the curse actually struck Harry, it would be twice, I guess. The other times it was blocked or stopped by some other phenomenon.

Did you know error

in the did you know it says that squibs cannot see dementors but in the order of the phoenix mrs figg (who is a squib) says that she CAN see dementor. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).

She lied to the Wizengamot, according to Rowling. See this entry on Rowling's Official Site. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 22:39, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
On the website you provided, it says that Mrs. Figg could not see the dementors but knew the signs, therefore knew that they were there. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).
Actually, she can but she didn't
