But I'm glad they had a chance to meet two of all the amazing Weasleys! :D And does anyone find it weird that James is not with Oliver this time?Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Those are indeed very lucky students. I bet they had a blast. :) I thought the same thing. Why wouldnt James have gone too? Seems a bit odd to me.Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: @LunaLuver, perhaps he had something else on? Just because people are twins, it doesn't mean they have to go around together all their lives!Avatar Imagedaldula says: Waw we never had any interesting events going on in my school I bet the students and staff had a great dayAvatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Those lucky students!

In response to valeria - johanna: i think shes totally right - why should james and oliver follow each other around just because they're twin, more specific - WEASLEY twins?? I think it's perfectly fine
