    There are many chapters in the Harry Potter books that Peeves takes place in. Peeves is one of the most irritating but funny characters in the Harry Potter series. He is a poltergeist that lives in Hogwarts and pretty much harasses anyone who crosses his path. He especially is a constant pain to Argus Filch and has shut Mrs. Norris into suits of armor several times. He also has a tendency to smash things and enjoys juggling burning torches over students' heads. Peeves has caused a great amount of mischief within Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, but these are just to name a few.

    Harry And Ginny's REAL First Kiss

    In Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry and Ginny have their first kiss. As many already know, Ginny's character in the books is arguably different from her character in the movies, making Harry and Ginny's relationship in the book much better than the one in the movie. After Gryffindor wins one of their quidditch matches, they throw a huge party in the common room. While Harry is caught up in all of the excitement, he seizes Ginny and kisses her in front of everyone in the common room. This kiss leads to the beginning of their relationship and Ginny admits to Harry that she had always hoped for them to end up together.

    The Explanation Of How Harry Survived The Killing Curse

    Voldemort uses the killing curse on Harry which can only kill one soul. Inside of Harry was two souls, his own, which was whole, and Voldemort's which was weak and decaying. Voldemort's soul was already weak and when choosing which soul would die, it was going to be his. Harry goes into a trans stage (a coma) and appears at Kings Cross Station where he can choose to come back to life or to move on. People often find themselves meeting with dead people in comas, which is where Dumbledore appears. Harry chooses to come back to fight which is how he had survived the killing curse.

    The Life And Lies Of Albus Dumbledore

    Rita Skeeter, who is usually known to make up false information, actually wrote a book known as the Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore, which contained mostly true information. This book came out not too long after Dumbledore had died and had contained crucial information about Dumbledore that many people did not know of. Gellert Grindelwald, one of Dumbledore's close friends, shared information with Skeeter. The book explains that Dumbledore had graduated Hogwarts with many honors and had planned to go on a grand tour of Europe with his friend, Elphias Doge, which had been canceled after he had found out about the death of his mother. The death of Kendra Dumbledore sets up a majority of Albus's life where he had to care after his family members and watch most of them tragically die right before his eyes.

  7. 7

    The History Of The Marauders

    The Marauders Map was created by James Potter, Remus Lupin, Sirius Black, and Peter Pettigrew during their time at Hogwarts. Lupin was bitten by a werewolf and the others became animaguses not too long after so that he wasn't alone when he changed into a werewolf. The four boy's nicknames (Moony, Prongs, Wormtail, and Padfoot) that are on the map reflect their animagus form. The four created the map with the Homonculous Charm, a powerful and advanced charm that enchanted the map to track the movements of everyone in the castle, as well as a charm to insult Severus Snape. This crucial information explains why Snape expresses hatred towards Harry and his Father throughout the books.

    Percy Reconciles With The Weasley's and Is There For Fred's Death

    Percy is known for having a long-term feud with the Weasley's once he starts working for the Ministry. In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, he abandons his family when he starts working with Cornelius Fudge and Dolores Umbridge. We hardly see Percy with the Weasley's throughout the books and in the final battle of Hogwarts, Fred and George are assigned to defend the castle's secret passageways. Percy reconciled with his family and fought side-by-side with Fred after the death eaters had forced their way inside. Fred was killed in an explosion outside of the Room of Requirement. Percy refused to leave Fred's side until him and Harry had moved his body to somewhere safe and he later joined his family to mourn over the loss of Fred.

  9. 9

    Teddy Lupin

    Teddy Lupin was the child of Remus and Tonks who was born before the Battle of Hogwarts. Remus and Harry had a fight in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows after Remus had left his impregnated wife for a short period of time. Harry argued that one should never leave their children unless they have to and had hoped for the result of this fight to be that Lupin would return to Tonks. As Harry wished, Lupin returned to his wife and Teddy was born after this fight had occurred. After Lupin and Tonks died in the battle, Harry spoke to Lupin through the resurrection stone. The two of them resolved their issues from the fight and Lupin explained that he had wanted to create a happy life for his son even if he did not get the chance to know him. Harry was named Teddy's godfather and although he was raised by his grandmother, Andromeda, Harry spent a great amount of time with him.

    Harry's Final Visit To Dumbledore's Office

    After the Battle of Hogwarts, Harry, Ron, and Hermione went to the Headmaster's office. The gargoyle let them in without a password and the three of them were greeted with a round of applause by the portraits. Harry informed the portrait of Dumbledore that he had dropped the Resurrection Stone somewhere in the Forbidden Forest and that he wasn't planning on looking for it in which Dumbledore agreed. Harry decided he was happier with his older wand rather than the Elder Wand and decided to use The Elder Wand to repair the broken halves of his own wand. He then decided to place the Elder wand back into Dumbledore's tomb and when he died a natural death, the wand would die with it.
