A question regarding Lily (I've been asking rather a lot of character related questions recently haven't I? Blame the new bunny). Do people think she knew what she was doing when she offered her life to protect Harry? It's implied that she was good at Charms because of what Ollivander said about her wand, but was she that good? I think Dumbledore says that it was very old and obscure magic, so would she have conciously decided that that was how she was going to save her son when Voldemort came to the house? Or was it a very lucky coincidence, or down to the prophecy that she did?

If this has been asked before, forgive me. I can't be bothered to search two threads for it. If you saw the state my screen is in you'd understand...
