Or at least the stupid ones. Ever wonder why [[Anime/BloodPlus Red Shield]] doesn't just send a sample of Chiropteran DNA to independent scientists, or [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]] doesn't stake a vampire on live TV? Certainly it would make {{Hellsing}}'s job easier if people knew who they should call in the case of a vampire or werewolf attack, so why do organizations and individuals like these constantly go against their own best interests to uphold the Masquerade? Because they know that if they tried to tell people that magic and monsters are real, they'd get a pack of aurors on their ass erasing their evidence. And whenever you come across a Masquerade where the [[ExtraStrengthMasquerade how]] strains/breaks WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief, AWizardDidIt. Literally.

Fred [[spoiler:didn't die]] during the final battle. Instead, he was attacked by a [[LiveActionTV/DoctorWho Weeping Angel]] which had been woken by the noise and confusion of the battle, or by all the stones/statues being destroyed. It transported him back in time 40 years or so. The [[spoiler:'body']] was put there by [[LiveActionTV/DoctorWho The Doctor]] because he knew that he couldn't reveal the truth to the grieving Weasleys - it would cause too much trouble and confusion right after the battle, and the chaos of the wizarding world after the downfall of Voldemort and the second wizarding war could not discover the reality of the Doctor's existence or alien life. Therefore the Doctor was forced to watch the Weasleys [[spoiler:grieving over what they thought was their son]], and was unable to tell them the truth. [[RuleOfCool Luna was the only one who knew.]] Just ''because''.

The wand and incantation system used in the european wizarding world is one technique for [[AmplifierArtifact focusing a wizard's]] [[WildMagic natural magical powers]]. But it's still essentially technology, not the only way it's possible to do things. In other cultures and in other times other power focuses exist, which are more in line with the traditional magic of those cultures. Some probably eschew focuses entirely to focus on meditation and potions. The reason wands are so popular now is a combination of an institutionalized schooling system and the legacy of European casters deliberately quashing native casting traditions to reduce resistance.

[[WMG: Remus Lupin is part of that [[ArseneLupin Lupin]] [[LupinIII family]]...]]
The surname Lupin is exceedingly rare, and pretty much comes down to two families in the whole world of fiction : the master gentleman-thief from France and his descendants, and the werewolf from England, his father (only in supplemental material) and his son. Considering that Arsène (the first) frequently dealt with magical elements (most notably in ''The Island of Thirty Coffins'', where the ''God-Stone'' sounds suspiciously like the Philosopher's Stone), and that a few tricks of wandless magic would explain a lot about the ridiculous heists that family keep somehow pulling off. Arsene was known for his many (many, many) dalliances ; and he ran at least one major heist in London in the early 1900s, at just the perfect time to father Remus's grandfather (Remus' father was born in 1929). That son grew up on stories of his father's exploits, and decided to use his name among wizardkind, resulting in the English Lupin family.
