That's why I love Ron. He didn't need to hear the reasons or logic of *why.* He was so full of heart and so defensive of his family and loved ones that he was the damage first, ask questions later type and I love that about him (even when he was wrong).
I feel like Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets should be: Argus Filch and the year my beautiful Mrs. Norris was petrified.<<< and the Deathly Hallows should be the year all the students were out of bed past curfew.
Draco ripped out a piece of paper from an unknown book in the beginning of Chamber of Secrets. Hermione had a ripped out piece of paper talking about the Basilisk in the movie. Not sure I agree, but it's food for thought!
