Alright. For those of you who haven’t read the entire Harry Potter series or haven’t read it at all for that matter, I just wanted to clear some things up.
WARNING: DO NOT READ THIS BEFORE YOU READ CHAPTER XXV IN ALBUS’ STORY. MAY BE A SPOILER.
When Albus tells his mum that he wants to make a little something for Tonks, Remus (Lupin), his Uncle Fred (Weasley), Sirius (Black), Grandpa James (Potter I), and Grandma Lily (Potter I), it’s a very emotional moment. These people were all either murdered at the hand of Voldemort or his Death Eaters.
Nymphadora Tonks, who prefered to be called by her surname, Tonks, had recently married Remus Lupin, and had given birth to their son, Ted Lupin. Tonks and Remus both died in 1998 in the Battle of Hogwarts. RIP Tonks and Lupin.
Fred Weasley is brother to Bill, Charlie, Percy, George (he is George’s extremely identical twin xD, “And you call yourself our mother.”), Ron, and Ginny Weasley. He was killed in 1998 in the Second Wizarding War, which had started maybe a couple of seconds after the Battle of Hogwarts. He was killed in a magical explosion. Harry, Hermione, Percy, and Ron were all apart of this explosion, but were not fatally harmed. RIP Fred.
Sirius Black was James Potter I’s best friend. Also the best friend of Remus, Sirius died in the Department of Mysteries in 1996, at the hand of his lunatic, Voldemort-crazed cousin, Bellatrix Lestrange. Bellatrix is also the aunt of Tonks, which makes Bellatrix Tonk’s mother’s sister. Bellatrix was also killed by Molly Weasley, mother of all Weasleys named above in Fred’s description. Molly killed Bellatrix because she had almost killed Molly’s only daughter, Ginny. But we aren’t here to remember Bella, are we? RIP Fred. Your death, as was everyone else’s, has been avenged by Harry Potter, your brother-in-law.
James and Lily Potter I were murdered by Voldemort in 1981, shortly after their son, Harry James, had turned one. Voldemort was asked to save Lily, by Severus Snape, who loved Lily since his childhood, and had been insanely jealous of James. As we all know, old Voldy turned on Harry too, after he killed James and Lily. But, oh no! What in the world? The Killing Curse BACKFIRED?! Well I wonder why? Anyway, Snape was proved to be one of the bravest good guys. RIP James and Lily Potter. RIP Severus Snape.
