* HeroOfAnotherStory: Calvin ends up having several times where his adventures came close to appearing in the canon events of the books (like nearly witnessing the Basilisk's first attack, and only narrowly avoiding death, watching Harry in The Tri-Wizard Tournament, taunting Percy after the Tournament, Calvin catching Draco when he was leaving the Room of Requirement, causing Filch to drag him to Slughorn's party, etc), but despite seeing Harry at the Tri-Wizard Tournament, and Ron noticing Calvin's dino form during their year on the run, they don't meet face-to-face until the epilogue, something Calvin lampshades:
-->"It's really incredible" Harry said. "after all the things we've both done at Hogwarts, that we never once met before now."

-->"No kidding." Calvin concurred. "It's almost as if someone wrote this big, elaborate story and then somebody else wrote this other story that coincided with the first story, only it was about different characters and it couldn't disrupt the flow of the first story!"

** Calvin is ''very'' unhappy with Galaxoid and Nebular when they reveal they can breath underwater, since he had ''just'' risked his life saving them because he thought they were drowning! Worse, he risked going to Azkaban, since in order to save them, he used one of the unforgivable curses (granted, it was a) the mind control one, not the torture or insta-kill ones, and b) it was on a ''dolphin'', not another human, but it still freaked him out pretty bad) to do it!
