The whole Time Turner thing's always confused the heck out of me.

EDIT: Okay, problems solved. Please read the comments section, (too). Thans! :EDIT ENDS

First off; please don't get me wrong. I love the Prisoner of Azkaban book - it was the first book I ever read in the series, and it has always been one of my favourite parts of the series and still is. For everything else in it except this time travel aspect. Everything else in it is brilliant.

It's been many years since I last read the book, so I don't remember all the details...But going by the movie adaptation which I don't recall straying much from the book in this aspect...

1.) At the point when Harry and Hermione used the Time Turner, they'd already saved both Buckpeak and Sirius - so why didn't they remember that they'd just done that? And thus not use the Time Turner as there was no need to.

--> I know they were somehow devided into two different enbodiments of themselves at the moment of using the Time Tuener, but both enbodiments were pretty much at the same places at the same time just playing different roles, so when they were standing...

Hello there. As many of Harry Potter fans surely know, there are many characters who have received a lot of illogical hate from some people, often poorly explained, since in general, the haters are unable to express their own opinion and lack fantasy, so the arguments are basically the same, especially for females. Let’s talk about Ginny for example, obviously my rant below concerns this character in particular.
Of course, when a part of fandom (of course, I’m not generalizing, that’s why I said SOME and A PART delibarately) starts to bash feminine characters (more generally – mainstream behaves the same way towards famous or not so famous women, doesn’t matter which one), one of the most “necessary” thing to do for them is to insult their looks, then attack their sexuality, and finally – stick a label, trope or stereotype. Now I’ll try my best to deconstruct these tendencies and show that such behavior is a direct result of double standards and sheer hypocrisy sadly common in our society. So, here we go.

I've noticed that (here, anyway) a lot of fans seem to have severe opinions of Snape. Either they hate him, or they love him and he's the best character ever. I don't see many who have a mixed opinion of him, so I'm going to try to explain mine.

I think that, while Snape was extremely brave spying on Voldemort and the Death Eaters for many years - and I can't imagine how hard that would have been - there are also many bad points about him.

+ I do pity him his childhood. Parental breakup and them fighting all the time, being poor, being picked on and isolated. Poor him. Unlike others though, I don't accept this as any excuse. One of the main messages of the series is that choices make someone who they are.
+Again, I pity him on how he was bullied as a teenager.
- He called Lily a mudblood. Even using that word is horrendous.
- He became a Death Eater. He chose to become a Death Eater. Although we don't see any of those years or hear any description of them, we can imagine the sort of crimes he committed during those years.
