Over the past couple of years, I've heard people refer to Ron as a Seer, even going so far as to give him a brother between Charlie and Percy so that he's actually a seventh son. Can anyone point to instances in the books that might imply that he is, indeed a Seer?
Also. On another note - right now I'm seeing speculation about Wormtail hurting Remus because his hand is silver. And I'm having trouble with that.
Number one - the hand seems more *silvery* than silver. I'll have to reread that bit, but I got the impression that it's a magical construct and doesn't actually contain silver.
Number two - I'm not sure Remus is sensitive to silver. Yes, I know that our mythology has werewolves sensitive to silver, and that can't be ignored, but there's no mention of Remus avoiding the silver cups and plates at Grimmauld Place, and they did make a big deal out of them, with Mundungus trying to see how he could fence them. No mention of Remus using a set of china and stainless steel, for example.
Are the goblets at Hogwarts silver? The plates are golden, so the cups might be, too. And what sort of utensils would he use to eat, given that I don't think they *do* use stainless steel?
My feeling about Remus is that being a werewolf is nothing but a curse for him - he's otherwise as vulnerable as any other wizard to weaponry and attacks. He also must either take a foul potion for a week out of every month or turn into a ravening beast, and his civil rights are severely curtailed.
