In this one there is a lot of dark side but lot of humor too

    Harry: Fight back, you’re a coward! Fight back!

    Off voice: Will Harry triumph over the awful Voldemort? Not yet dear muggle. See you in cinemas!

  2. So far as I know, Draco’s lady friend during his school years was Pansy Parkinson, the very same who’s weeping, heart broken, at the end of book six. Did I get everything all right?

    With Love,


    • yeah, Draco is with Pansy, sort of i think but in the end he marries Astoria Greengrass instead. Daphne Greengrasses little sister. 🙂

      • who the f*** is astoria greengrass? is that name written in the books? becouse i red them, but i cant remember anyone called astoria greengrass…
        i was convinced, that pansy was the one he married in the end…

        • Daphne Greengrass’s little sister, as libs said above. Altough her name isn’t mentioned into the book, is it given on Wikipedia. And no, Pansy wasn’t to be the one, after all…

          With Love,


        • It mentions astoria greengrass at the bit at the end of deathly hallows. You know the 19 years later bit. Harry, Ron and Hermione see Draco at the train station and it says he’s with astoria…..


  3. (already, sorry for my english, i am french)

    I don’t know if it me or not, but i am to perturb for the phrase of Tom : “Why is Draco a problematic child? His father right. Because he was bullyed by Harry’s father?”
    Lucius is older than James or Severus….. He wasn’t bully by james at Hogwarts ❓

    Your comment, Tom, on father’s of Draco and Harry, let me hear as you let that Severus is your “true father”. As it was him than Jamed and Co has bully. It’s quite disturbing, although pleasant to think. 😉

    • Hello everybody…

      I’ve got the same problem with this sentence (maybe it’s also me), and the french translation doesn’t help anymore. Does someone have an explanation (maybe it’s just a vocabulary problem)

      Bonne journée (have a good day)

  4. I’m sorry if nobody understands. I had problems with this sentence but I checked and James and Lucius were in Hogwart together (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows chapter 33 in the french edition page 718) and they were ennemies in Voldemort time.
    But I’m not sure of my translation… But that’s what Tom says. What do you think of it Choupy and Axelanderya in French that’s “tyraniser” or “brimer”? Other translation?

  5. I’m so sorry! The real sentence is ” Why is Draco a problematic child? His father right. Because he was bullyed by his father in his childhood.”
