However, Ginny has discovered that being a 'Quidditch star' has costs. You have no privacy, and people will talk about you, saying things that have little or no foundation in truth.

Summary: Bellatrix rejoices after she murders Sirius. Yet the curious fact remains that Bellatrix murdered her hated cousin not with the green killing curse, but a strange red flash.

Summary: There are stories everywhere. Some reveal themselves to their characters, but most do not.
One story goes like this: Once upon a time, there were two children, a boy and a girl, who were best friends. The boy had grown up in the cold, and he fell in love with the girl’s bright warmth; he cared more about her than anything in the world. Yet fate rejected them, and one day, without meaning to, the boy shattered their friendship forever. He tried to apologize, but it was too late. He had been swallowed back into bitter iciness, while the girl remained in the light of the sun.
Yet the girl does not know all this. She only knows of the turning point in the story, the hurt the boy has caused her, the reason she would not forgive him.
These are Lily’s words to Severus at the turning point in their story.
