In Lily's letter to Sirius, she mentions how Harry nearly killed the cat with the toy broom that Sirius got him. Well, what if that's the reason that Crookshanks has a squashed head and a flat face? <<< This makes perfect sense!
Can we just take a moment and appreciate that they are in a crumbling castle and about to be attacked by a snake and Ron is using BOTH of his hands to cover Hermione instead of covering/protecting his own face and head?
This seriously makes me wish JK Rowling wrote a whole book about them grown up, all the things she knows that we will never get. like okay i get we have the cursed child but i mean a book that doesn't suck
