Gilderoy smiled at that. "Harry, curiosity really is the polar opposite of a good self-preservation instinct."
I mean... hes really not wrong. Also props to Lockhart for telling Dumbledore.
I'm much too curious for my own good. I was about to say i wouldn't jump down the hole, but it's at /magic/ school and at 11 i totally would have. Even now i might if i had magic, or anything i felt would be protective enough. So the first point stands. To curious for my own good xD

-Neville made a face. "Oddly, they seemed to think so. I guess I shouldn't complain too much. I mean, without their mushy love story – and your dad being annoyed at love – I wouldn't even exist, after all."
"Give yourself some credit," Harry urged. "You can both be grateful and annoyed at the same time."
"You're right," Neville realized, beaming. "I just need to have a little more faith in myself, that's all."-
Omg xD this was a gem. Also the entire thing involving drunk Lockhart and snape. LOL. I don't like the taste of most alcohol either, but I've found some wines that are actually pretty good. And by some i mean one. White zinfandel? Either that or pink Moscato. I can never remember. Whichever one is the wrong one isn't super awful, but it's more tart and bitter and... okay so its kind of awful and i really need to remember which one is the good one.
I loved this chapter!

You know, i keep forgetting the longbottoms got to raise Neville, like i know they lived but i hadn't fully grasped that it meant they got to raise him and that's probably contributing a lot to how well adjusted and confident he is in this, and how funny.
This was a great chapter!

XD happy Christmas indeed. I used to wake up that early for Christmas but i was like, 7. (My parents hated it) we weren't allowed to open presents without the sun being up and the family around but we could open our stockings immediately, so a couple years I've opened those at midnight. LOL
And cool! The broom :D

For some reason, Sirius loving where's waldo and also never being able to find him is freaking hilarious. Partly because at least some of the waldos are easy to find and partly because he's such a Kid. Lol
Also, socks xD

I could have sworn Lockhart got the spell that made the werewolf reclaim it's mind though? Unless you're not talking about the wagga wagga one?
And i liked the genie kreacher discussion because it's really accurate. And i think i could think of a wording which would allow no chance for harm to befall me, but it would be long and complicated. Like for the girlfriend one. "I wish for a human girlfriend (no chances taken) i would find beautiful, with a complementary personality to my own, who has similar interests and compatible career and life goals, whose acquisition would not put me in a life threatening or even dangerous situation based on her or her contacts, circumstances, or by methods known or yet unknown to me, and whose presence in my life would not bring me ruin or harm but would encourage and enable happiness in my life." I think the worst thing the genie could do with that would be to make it a long distance girlfriend, tbh, which if we have similar life and career goals would not last forever. I thought of this in a few minutes and would want to get second opinions before actually using it with a genie, but yeah. As soon as i watched Disney's Aladdin i thought of my wishes and have been slowly making them more airtight as I've gotten older. (The girlfriend one is not one of them, partially because i hadn't thought of that before and because i believe i can get that on my own)

-I can't really see you looking up the answers you got wrong given how…disinterested you seem to be."
"Oh, you noticed then?" Harry asked, surprised.
Hermione nodded. "Of course I have. But you're not so disinterested that you'll leave the compartment and I can work with that."
Harry moved to stand up.
"Sit back down," she ordered.
Omfg. Hahaha xD this part absolutely killed me.
I loved this chapter!

XD Lockharts reasoning. It makes sense i guess, but it's hilarious.
I figured harry would still at least tell Lockhart, i just wasn't sure if he'd obliviate his friends so they wouldn't get involved or not.
Ooh, i wonder how the fight with possessed quirrel will be publicised?
| Reader99 chapter 21 . 2/26
And this is where harry obliviates them and tells Lockhart?
I mean, I'm half joking lol, but... "when in doubt obliviate"
And yay the weasley twins :D

He glanced at the Sorting Hat again and wondered what he was going to tell his friends. Chances were, Dumbledore was refusing to feed the poor thing.
The timing on this one had me nearly doing a spit take. I guess i can't eat or drink while reading this xD
Great chapter, i love it!

Omg pansy. File that under things i didn't expect and multiplied the hilarity. I like how you keep bringing up jokes again, it's like memes.
A great chapter as always, thank you for writing and sharing!

I love the snark. It's amazingly well done.

This chapter gave me the idea for a voldemort who actually learns from his time as a wraith and figures out a way to possess quirrel with less... creepy side affects. He proceeds to use quirrel (without needing the stone, he doesn't get found out that way) for many decades, removing the curse from the dada position so he can create new generations that share his views. Idk but smart voldemort is a really scary proposition
I enjoyed this chapter!

Good for you Lockhart, you needed some morals somewhere xD Neville is my favorite character in this, i think.

"Never let it be said that a Weasley gives up easily!" Ron declared. "Unless, of course, we don't want to do whatever it is we're attempting and then it's a bloody miracle we even started."
Guess I'm a Weasley then. Lol.
Everything with Dumbledore in it is hilarious and I'm not quite sure why, but keep it up. This story makes my day better
