>Harry, did I ever tell you about Time-Turners? They are magical devices that allow the user to travel backwards in time. This incredible power can even be used to save loved ones from death, as you and your friends discovered with Buckbeak. Despite the fact that the Ministry has an entire closet full of Time-Turners, we never once thought to use one to end Voldemort’s reign of terror. It would have been as simple as using one right after he killed one of his victims, say, your parents, and then lying in wait to ambush him before he showed up. Alas, time travel is simply too dangerous to meddle with. It must only be used for the express purpose of allowing a little girl to take extra classes one semester, and only if she is a good friend.
