Magical Birth (Squibs, Muggle-borns) and Death (Ghosthood)

Why do some wizards/witches become ghosts and others don't? Another superb question, and this time I can tell you that you will find out much more about that in book five. AOL Chat (October 2000)

[What makes some witches/wizards become ghosts after they die and some not?] You don't really find that out until Book VII, but I can say that the happiest people do not become ghosts. As you might guess, Moaning Myrtle! Scholastic Chat (February 2000)

Sometimes a witch or a wizard occurs in an otherwise Muggle family, just as a Squib is a non-magic person who occurs in an otherwise magic family. Scholastic Chat (February 2000)

Hogwarts and Magical Education

[HPFreak7: How are muggle parents convinced to let their kids go to Hogwarts, a strange place they never heard of before; and wouldn't they think it was a practical joke?] In the case of Muggle parents, special messengers are sent to explain everything to them. But don't forget that they will have noticed that there's something strange about their child for the previous ten years, so it won't come as a complete bolt from the blue. World Book Day chat (March 2004)

[If you could travel to Hogwarts for an hour, what would you do there?] Go straight into a certain room, mentioned in book four which has certain magical properties Harry hasn't discovered yet!Comic Relief chat (March 2001)

There is no University for Wizards. Scholastic Chat (February 2000)

[Can prefects take points or not?] Ron got it wrong in 'Phoenix', from which we deduce that he hasn't been a very authoritarian prefect thus far; he clearly hasn't been taking points from anybody. JK Rowling Official Site

[Since Gryffindor seems to be the favorite house, does that mean you value bravery over wit and kindheartedness and cunning (the signatures of the other three houses)?] I value wit and kindheartedness a lot, but yes, I think bravery would get my vote in a contest.Barnes & Noble chat (October 2000)

Magical Places and Things

[Where is Azkaban?] In the north of the North Sea. A very cold sea. Scholastic Chat (February 2000)

They have a means of finding out what goes on in the outside world that I think is more fun than the Internet. Could anything be more fun than the Internet? Yes! Scholastic chat (March 2001)

Muggles and Wizarding World

[Are the Muggle and Magical worlds ever going to be rejoined?] No, the breach was final, although as book six shows, the Muggles are noticing more and more odd happenings now that Voldemort's back. World Book Day chat (March 2004)
