I must ask, I saw in one of your answers, something about being demisexual? What is it? I'd genuinely love to know.

BE BOLD, My Dear Answer:

lemonteaflower:

from Urban Dictionary:

Demisexuality is the sexual orientation of a person who does not experience primary attraction, the physical or sexual attraction, but does experience secondary attraction, deep emotional attraction. Like asexuals, demisexuals often don’t have sex due to lack of attraction but they can and some do, when with a person they most likely already have a deep emotional connection with. Demisexuality means lack of physical or sexual attraction but it doesn’t necessarily mean lack of sex drive or that demisexuals don’t crave companionship or a relationship, that might or might not involve sex. Demisexuals can be aromatic, heteroromantic, homoromantic, biromantic, or panromantic, very much like asexuals can be. On rare occasion a demisexual person can be attracted to someone sexually but usually it is after developing a strong friendship or relationship with that person. This is no way discards someone of their demisexuality and is important to remember.
Friend: Demisexuality? What the heckles is that?

Demisexual person: It’s basically sort of like being asexual but with more emotional attraction and also I might have sex if I find the rightperson and I want to try it.

Friend: Oh, okay, cool.

there’s something really interesting in this passage that I wanted to point out Trelawney assumes that Harry was born in midwinter because of his “dark hair” and “mean stature” and “tragic losses so young in life” Tom Riddle was born in midwinter, is describe in CoS as resembling Harry, and his mother died right after his birth Harry has a piece of Voldemort’s soul in him that’s why Trelawney made that assumption

TRELAWNY WAS ACTUALLY A GREAT SEER SHE JUST MESSED UP SOMETIMES AND ACTED A LITTLE GOOFY SO NO ONE TOOK HER SERIOUSLY

BECAUSE CLASSICAL ALLUSIONS 
For those of you who don’t know your Greek mythology, Cassandra was the daughter of the King and Queen of Troy. Apollo tried to get in her pants by giving her the gift of prophecy and took nice guy douche-bagging to a godly level by cursing her when she turned him down. 
The curse? That she would never be believed. 
So all of Cassandra’s warnings to the people of Troy fell on deaf ears. 
And in case you don’t remember, Trelawny mentions that her great-great-grandmother’s name was … you guessed it… “Cassandra”
