So I've been re-reading the books and re-watching the movies.
Don't know why, just have.
I've noticed a couple discrepancies and I was wondering if anyone else either noticed, or if they know the answers. I seems JK Rowling would have picked up on these things, she's pretty brilliant like that.
1) The thestrals. Why could Harry only see them after he saw Cedric die? Before that, he had not only seen his mother killed when he was a baby, but he saw Professor Quirrell die at the end of Book 1. Why did he not see them until Book 5?
2) A little thing, but in Book 2, Percy took away 5 house points from Gryffindor because Ron was talking back to him. Then in Book 5, it was very clear that prefects couldn't take away house points (only the Inquisitorial Squad or whatever they're called). Did the rules change or something?
Anyone else notice things like this?
Just curious. Can't wait for Book 7 or for Order to come out in theatres!!!
