I am not a ghost specialist!!
Peeves has a physical form that is unusual for a poltergeist! Is this because we are told he is? Like tomatos being veg (when its a fruit?)
I think he fits better as a Tulpa (or a manifestation)
Peeves was present for the first head master! Hogwarts must have attracted its ghosts over time!? (We know that moaning mertol is newer than most others, being a former student killed on site)
My theory is that the misschef of students (maybe as a by product of protection and containment charms cast on the school, eg. a ghost in the programing like computers) manifested itself as peeves, then year after year students experiance him, feeding the belief in him, and the miss behaving nature feeding his too!
After all students dont, cause as much trouble as they could? Or at least it doesnt make it to the books. Usualy it results of arguments or rivalries (slyth vs grif) no ice on the floors, magic kick me signs, hands in worm water, freezing underwear, basicly hexing or pranking eachother! Even the muggle borns who might be more familior with this type of foolary!
I know you may be screaming fred and gorge by now! Yes the twins are icons for this but they are the only ones and basicly encouraged the other students with the things they made!
The twins are the only exception maybe because they are twins? Some how confuses the magic too? Un able to be subdued by peeves pesance but the oposite!!! After all these boys just invented all these weezis? Wiches and wizards have died messing with spells and potions (lunas mom) so how did they do it! My belief is that much research had been done on this topic or topics before and the boys pulled it together!
Maybe "non lethal effects of magical herbs" then mix them together in sweets etc.
Small Moments in the Films You've Noticed
TL;DR: Are there any small moments you've noticed rewatching the films?
A lot of film teachers I've had, and other film students I've spoken to, whenever you rewatch a film you always notice something different. I had a film lecturer mention to their first year class at uni about a story I told her. I was rewatching Pan's Labyrinth for my coursework, and I noticed little motifs of the faun and the more adult themes that I hadn't noticed before. One of the students in her class said, 'I've already watched La La Land, so why do I have to watch it again?' It's just a moment that stuck with me, and even with the Harry Potter films, I've noticed small moments that I may have missed on first, or earlier viewing.
Let me take you back to my first year at college. We had to analyse a sequence from a film, and I chose The OWL scene from Order of the Phoenix. I repeatedly watched this scene, and even now I would definitely go back and rewrite the essay (which on a slight tangent, I found yesterday). But what I noticed is the dialogue between the twins, which is almost drowned out by the fireworks and the Fireworks score playing over it. One of the twins (I think it's Fred) says, before releasing the dragon,
Fred: Ready when you are.
It took me a good seven or eight listens to hear it, and it's so subtle but works so well with the scene. Like it's all pre-planned except the grand finale. But I love how it's just inserted, like amidst all the chaos, they are still the ones to pull it all off.
What are some moments you've seen from the films that maybe you didn't on your first few watches?
I'd love to know. I'll share another one mine on this thread soon.
