Related to the above; these characters are most likely to have had sex before they died. Do not include the characters who were explicitly ''not'' virgins when they died (Remus Lupin, Nymphadora Tonks, James and Lily Potter) or characters who did not die within the series ([[Characters/HarryPotterTheTrio The Golden Trio]], Draco Malfoy, Neville Longbottom, etc.) Also, [[CaptainObvious spoiler alert]].

* Also I doubt Sirius and Remus would have just stood aside. Peter maybe because... Peter. But both Sirius and Remus were on equal footing with James and definitely would have interfered with him trying to slip Lily some lovepotion. And don't forget how both of them pointed out how JAMES grew up in their last two years in school and how Lily gave him a chance after he did the growing up thing, not before. Someone did change his behaviour, but it was neither aprupt, nor potion-induced, nor Lily.

Think of it this way: While Lily would never have liked being called a "Mudblood", she should have given a little more consideration to the idea that Severus was angry and humiliated when he said it, and that anger and humiliation makes people lose control, ''and'' that they'd been friends since they were nine years old; if she never once saw his reaction to public humiliation in six years, then she wasn't paying attention. With this in mind, she had no excuse not to forgive him. (Please keep in mind, however, that he ''was'' wrong for saying it, and that this is not Lily-bashing; it's just something I thought about.)

But let's assume that they had sex at some point before this happened. Lily wouldn't have made that decision lightly, and she did love Severus, in a "best friends" way, so losing her virginity with him (and, by that same token, him with her) would have been extremely significant for her. When she told him to fuck off after calling her "Mudblood", she wasn't angry; she was broken-hearted, and it was the final sign that no matter how much she changed for him, he wasn't going to do it for her. Which led her to James Potter, [[CharacterDevelopment who stopped being a "toerag" long enough to convince her that he just might be worth her time]]. (Also note that Sirius told Harry, in Book 5, that James and Lily only started dating in their ''seventh'' year. If she really had been angry, the best way to get back at Severus would have been to immediately start dating his worst enemy.)

*** That's because Harry's an angst 15-year old who idealizes his parents and doesn't recognize the concept of "the lady doth protest too much." JK Rowling even hinted at this in an interview. "You're a woman. You know what I'm talking about." (Leaky Cauldron interview, I think).

* With TheReveal in ''Film/FantasticBeastsTheCrimesOfGrindelwald'', I think he saw her as some sort of mother figure. She's an adult in the 20's where he was just born so she's much older than him and is in fact old enough to be his mother.

Added DiffLines:

* Lavender Brown - confirmed to die in ''Deathly Hallows'' by WordOfGod despite the book's narrative is a bit vague about this. It's unlikely that she never did it with Ron in ''Half-blood Prince'' and it's even ''more'' unlikely that she had a time for this in ''Deathly Hallows'', even if she got another boyfriend, considering that Hogwarts was under the tyranny of Carrow siblings at this time. Of course, she might have time when she's hiding in Room of Requirement but there's a big risk of PrimalScene since there are a lot of other students there, [[HarmfulToMinors not to mention underage students]].

\n** This is realistically plausible, and one of many possibilities that could have happened. Not every marriage, even ones that do ultimately end up very much in love, started with perfect twoo wuv and absolutely no ulterior motives or complicating factors.


** Please, if Voldemort thought one of his minions was a threat to someone or something he ''actually cared about'', he wouldn't ''hide it''' - he'd [[JustShootHim break out the AKs]].

It/he caused Harry to experience dreams which were sometimes foreshadowing, as well as caused him pain which alerted Harry to Voldemort's presence or intense emotion felt by him. Harry also "just knew" many things that helped him in his fights with Voldemort, including to destroy the diary Horcrux by stabbing it with a basilisk fang. It could be surmised that the bit of soul was angry at his master for botching his incluaion into a proper Horcrux or resented him for being weak and foolish enough to be felled by his own curse.

[[WMG: The houses of Gryffindor and Slytherin are cursed.]]

Godrick and Salazar were friends before having a falling out, yes? This is the reason for the rivalry between the two houses. Salazar a man who seems to be fairly set in his ways and would likely demand the same of all of his students placed a curse on both houses, that no Slytherin and Gryffindor can ever maintain a positive relationship. This curse was infused into Salazar's bloodline, and the rivalry lingered so long as that bloodline existed. This might explain why no teacher at Hogwarts seems keen on ending the rivalry and in some cases it would seem that they even encourage the hostility (James and co.'s very public bullying of Snape seems to go entirely unpunished, the Quitich teams are pit against each other almost constantly, and no other teacher raises an eyebrow at Snape unfair treatment of Gryffindors) because there is nothing to be done about it until the curse is lifted.

The curse fills the students of both houses with instant, almost instinctual loathing toward each other. This feeling likely lingers as a learned behavior for the rest of the students lives, or at least it did, as not-yet-sorted students like James, Sirius, Draco and even Ron each already had preset house-based prejudices that were most likely learned from their parents. If the students happened to have a positive relationship before their sorting, as in the case of Lily and Severus, the curse would cause turmoil to their friendship for possibly years until it finally ended on a bitter, unhappy note, punishing the students who tried to forge what Salazar probably considered an unnatural connection.

Slytherin House after Voldemort's demise is said to have gotten better, though still not an entirely desirable House. This can be less about the curse and more in reference to the lingering prejudices from the curse, considering the context in which is it brought up a fair bit more playful than the borderline fanatical allegiance demonstrated by the characters-in-questions grandfather. This seems to cement that the curse is lifted, presumably alongside Voldemort, the last remaining heir of Slytherin.

Considering he lived a thousand years ago, it wouldn't make much sense otherwise for him to only have one existing relative instead of thousands or even millions. His children made sure only to breed with pure-bloods, and over time what qualified as "proper Slytherin material" shrank. It eventually led to the Gaunt family being the only family left with Salazar's blood, which due to its inbreeding habit and general deterioration would leave Tom Riddle Jr/Voldemort the only man on the planet left in the Slytherin family.
