From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Stan Shunpike is a conductor on the Knight Bus. He's also a spectator at the Quidditch World Cup. When several veela start using their seductive powers on visitors to the match, Stan claims, "I'm about to become the youngest ever Minister of Magic, I am" (9.75). This just goes to show the power of the veela. No wonder Fleur Delacour is so attractive.
