comment Nine-month old question asked today
@NateKerkhofs the newer question was much better and more detailed. It's not unusual to keep the better of two duplicates rather than the older. But here, the new and better question didn't have any answers and there was a good one on the old question, so we merged them to get the best of both worlds.

However much Snape hated Harry, it would be a really bad idea for him to just let him die, especially at Hogwarts.

comment How do I handle a 10 year old girl "in love"?
"2dis·ci·pline verb \ˈdi-sə-plən\ : to punish (someone) as a way of making sure that rules or orders are obeyed" - What makes you say "discipline" is not punishment?

@SachinShekhar USS was first used for the US, but it's still used for Starfleet after the US ceased to be.

comment Earth-centric naming of Starfleet vessels
@SachinShekhar They're still Federation ships. Federation ships have the Federation prefix.

comment Quirrell knew Snape was trying to save Harry -- so Voldemort knew as well?
"Wouldn't Snape's defense of Harry raise a second suspicion that could not be as easily answered as the first?" I don't see why it would. Why do you think that would raise suspicion?
