I’m with you, I don’t feel like it was common teenage angst. He did definitely exhibit some symptoms of PTSD (I have it and I can see myself mirrored in his actions in OotP, though I understand it varies from person to person) so I think that’s a fair assessment (though I have no proof that’s what it was, I’m sorry).
At the very least, he’s mentally exhausted beyond a normal level, and his behaviour really shouldn’t be minimized to just hormones.
I’m not 100% on that, I honestly didn’t expect to see them up until in the morning or on the 31st.
That sounds like the likely answer, thank you, anon. I haven’t read the Prince’s Tale in ages, I forgot about that part.
Oh my gosh, did I also miss it? Because I don’t recall ever reading about the Marauders first train ride. Does anyone know what this is referencing?

JK Rowling said she would have made Seamus/Dean canon but she felt it would be distracting from the main trio
Literally how much space do you need to have a line about Dean asking Seamus to the Yule ball
Look, I’ll try
"Parvati had tried to ask Dean to the ball, but he told her he was going with Seamus instead."
Hi, just wanna really quickly point out that, not only does no source for that quote exist (trust me, I’ve waded through hell and back trying to find one), but OP also changed their URL + deleted the original post, which means it was either made up for notes or they were misinformed. I get where this post was going, representation is awesome and important, but maybe let’s not spread falsehoods for the sake of criticism; you can criticize the author without resorting to that. Repeat after me:
Things Dumbledore Did That’d Be Creepy if You Did them (x)
I’ve never found a source for that, despite looking endlessly, so I treat it as a myth. If anyone has a source with a direct quote from JK Rowling, I’ll be happy to publish it*.
*”JK Rowling said” followed by paraphrasing isn’t a source, it’s hearsay.
No, it’s not even a little bit true. Draco Malfoy “teased” Hermione because he was a little punk, not because he was secretly in love with her. That tidbit is 100% fanon.
