Some more for the pile(s) [May. 17th, 2005|10:03 pm]
Ask JKR a Question



1. I would really love to know when the following peoples' birthdays are: Lily Evans Potter, James Potter, Luna Lovegood, Sirius Black, Tom Riddle, Peter Pettigrew, Albus Dumbledore, Nymphadora Tonks, Regulus Black. I figure that since a good percentage of these people are dead, we won't be told their birthdays, and as a writer/roleplayer, I love having those details so that I can be as true to the character(s) as possible (this reasoning is behind a lot of my other questions as well).

2. I would also love to know the middle names of the following people: Lily Evans Potter, James Potter, Luna Lovegood, Neville Longbottom, Nymphadora Tonks, Sirius Black (is his middle name Orion? or is that just fanon?).

3. What day (date) did James and Lily get married on? Who was Lily's maid of honour? Are any of her friends still alive?

4. What is the Wizarding World's stance/views on homosexuality?

5. Did Prof. McGonagall go to Hogwarts during the same time Hagrid and Tom Riddle attended? Was she in their year?

6. Was Neville with his parents when they were attacked by Bellatrix et al? Where were they attacked? If Neville wasn't with them, where was he? (And if he was with him, is the theory that he'd been memory charmed afterwards correct?)

7. How old is Tonks?

8. What is Luna's father's first name? What was her mother's first (and maiden) name?

9. Were Frank and Alice the same age as James and Lily? If not, how much older/younger were they? What is Alice's maiden name?

10. Were Gideon and Fabian Prewitt twins, like Fred and George? If not, which one was older? Was Molly older or younger than them? When did they die?

11. Who were the 7th year Gryffindor Prefects when Lily and James were Head Boy and Head Girl?

12. When were James and Lily's parents killed? What were their names?

13. When did Regulus die? Which Death Eater killed him?

14. How did Petunia survive, when every single other member of the Potter and Evans families (excepting Harry) didn't?

15. Did Lily know what her sacrifice would do?

I came up with all of those off the top of my head when I sat down to think about it... I hope that's okay. Thanks so much for making this happen!

Why would they jump down her throat? I decided against asking her if any of the characters were gay (mostly because I'd rather have the possibility than the possibility of a denial), so I don't think it'll be a problem...

She still might not answer it, of course, but I don't know that she'd get in trouble if she did...

Some of those questions have been asked already, by me and others, which means they're obviously good ones. I'm particularly interested in number five because Jo once said that McG was around 70 in GoF, and by that math she SHOULD have been a student with Riddle and Hagrid. Excellent questions.

I also want to know what House Luna's parents were in, that would be interesting, as well as how much older or younger they were from the marauders.

Oops. I apologize for the repetition... And feel free to add my questions to the compilation you'll be posting to the Leaky Lounge. I edited #10 just a bit, so here's the new version:

10. Were Gideon and Fabian Prewitt twins, like Fred and George? If not, which one was older? Was Molly older or younger than them? When did they die?

Oh, and I added Regulus Black's name to my list of those whose birthdays I'd like to know... :)

And thanks for the compliment. I'm glad they're at least semi-intelligent ;D
