Why didn't lupin give harry a big hello as one of his father's best friend, instead of being vague even when harry asked straight out. Never understood that.

So true!
And the portkey part in #4 also bothers me. If people know you made a portkey then why did he wait until the end?

Which portkey do you mean?

A lot of times they are timed...

I can't believe that noone here mentions what to me is the most confusing part of the series! The concept of memories! In a memory, the person who is remembering is viewing it from their point of view. What you remember is how you viewed a situation. You place judgment on that memory- you are not impartial to it. We see throughout the memories shown of voldemort that Dumbledore remembers things exactly as they were, trials as they were etc but was viewing them exactly as they happened, not how a person thinks it happened. There is no point of view- It is just viewing a scene. People don't remember things like that. They remember things angled in a way that they saw it happen and don't pay attention to things that aren't meaningful to them. Make sense a bit?
So how does Slughorn remember himself sitting like a king eating pineapple, unless, that is how he views himself?
And the ministry wizard happens to remember the entire scene by the gaunts, including the sentences in parseltongue? He should've remembered hissing or gibberish but not the exact notes and pitches of the hissing, allowing Harry to understand him many years later! The ministry official made no sense of it, therefore, how can he remember it?
There as re more examples of this issue, I just can't remember them on the top of my head.
Also, how can Harry follow his father and his friends outside after their owl exam "as long as he still saw Snape" but hear the full conversation that they were having, even though Snape never saw or heard any of that. He was too far away! So how can Snape remember it and allow Harry to access it?
Also, on the topic of memories, it really surprised me that Harry saw his grandparents on platform 9 and 3/4s with lily and tuny and doesn't think anything to himself like "omg those are my grandparents" or "omg that's my aunt petunia, no wonder she is so bitter". In the chamber of secrets, Harry was so excited to see them and when Harry saw his father and his friends he was so excited to see all of them. Here, he saw so many new people and he doesn't seem to bat an eyelash.
Just a random thought


So interesting, that doesn’t bother me in the slightest. First of all, our brains are more capable than we expect. Second, it’s magic! I feel like it’s still in the realm of reasonable.

In book 4. Crouch made the cup a portkey at the end, but he could've made is desk in DODA a portkey or his book, or called him in for a private meeting and offered him a cup of tea. He can just go along with Harry in September and not waste a whole year teaching.

Our brains may be capable, but every situation is interpreted by us and stored like that. This guy could not have made sense of hissing and shouldn't have remembered that. And Snape never knew what James was saying so there is no way Harry should've heard him talking.
