The Journey from Platform Nine and Three-quarters: Pug's Harry Potter Reading Challenge '12


Dry corned beef. - I'm positive Tatum would've happily eaten them for Ron. 

Quoted from Pottermore: 
   "Where exactly the Hogwarts Express came from has never been conclusively proven, although it is a fact that there are secret records at the Ministry of Magic detailing a mass operation involving one hundred and sixty-seven Memory Charms and the largest ever mass Concealment Charm performed in Britain. The morning after these alleged crimes, a gleaming scarlet steam engine and carriages astounded the villagers of Hogsmeade (who had also not realised they had a railway station), while several bemused Muggle railway workers down in Crewe spent the rest of the year grappling with the uncomfortable feeling that they had mislaid something important."

Some friends are friends from the beginning.... and never forgotten.

  1. Ron's sandwiches are dry corned beef. My dad used to make those for me when I was little! I'm a vegetarian now, but I still eat my sandwiches dry.

    I'm not sure the Hogwart's Express can be obtained, unless you're playing Harry Potter monopoly. Does that exist yet? Anyway, they arrived at the Express through Platform 9 3/4, which was really just a barrier wall between 9 and 10 at King's Cross that you had to walk through without fear.

    Ron and Harry are able to form a friendship because of their life similarities. Both grew up the underdog, both lived without wealth. What Ron does have (family/knowledge) he is willing to share, and what Harry has (new found wealth) he is willing to share in return. If it weren't for Harry's upbringing, he may never have connected with Ron, and instead, may have been friends with Draco! Gasp!
