103. Fred and George’s favorite brother was Charlie Weasley. Their relationship with him was a lot like Percy’s relationship with Bill: they idolized him.
102. Everyone expects Fred and George to pull a massive prank on their birthday each year. One year, however, they didn’t pull a prank. Thinking back on it, everyone agrees that that was the best prank of all.
101. The line of Pygmy Puffs were just the beginning of miniature animals. The twins had a list of which animals they wanted to shrink down. It included: hippogriffs, phoenixes, dragons, giant squids, and, of course, Blast-Ended Skrewts.
099. Even though they hadn’t managed to lock Percy in an Egyptian tomb, Fred and George did manage to strand their brother while the rest of the Weasleys continued on through Egypt. Molly only realized after about a day that Percy was still back at the tomb.
097. When Fred and Angelina first starting dating, Angelina was worried that she’d never have any alone time with Fred. To her surprise, the couple didn’t even have to ask George to leave them alone; he seemed to realize exactly when he wasn’t needed or wanted, and he disappeared with Katie Bell while Fred and Angelina spent time together.
096. Unbeknownst to Fred and George, who hated the little ferret, Draco Malfoy admired the way the twins were so straightforward about their business—which is why he purchased their items during his sixth year.
095. Fred was hurt more than the rest of his family when Percy decided to be a prat and disown his family. The reason being was that Fred had somewhat looked up to Percy, and he hated the fact that his older brother became such a prat.
094. People don’t generally know this, but Fred and George were very good singers. Professor Flitwick allowed them to attend one choir rehearsal (and performance) a year. This was mainly because he knew the twins couldn’t stand still for more than an hour without causing some sort of mayhem. The Charms Master still says that they were his best baritones.
093. The twins liked to make fun of Ron because they knew that if they insulted their twin, they’d be insulting themselves.
092. George’s favorite memory of Fred was during their seventh year, when they flew around on broomsticks lighting off fireworks. Fred’s favorite memory of George was in their third year when George nearly killed Snape with a snowball, earning the pair a month’s worth of detentions.
091. Percy Weasley never got over Fred’s death. Audrey would try to get her husband to talk about her deceased brother-in-law, but whenever Fred’s name would come up—even if she was talking about George’s son—Percy would grow unbearably angry, and he would storm out of the house to the Leaky Cauldron. Percy felt that Fred’s death had been his fault. After all, he was supposed to protect his younger siblings, but he didn’t. He failed.
090. When the twins first saw Draco Malfoy at the Sorting, George commented on how ferrety the first-year looked. Fred then said, “If only we could turn him into a ferret. Then he’d know what a weasel feels like.” Their wish was granted in their sixth year, when Alastor Moody came to teach DADA. They were thrilled.
