ah yes, and the snitch, the one that wins you the game-
the snitch doesn’t win you the game.
/obviously/ it /does/.
/obviously/ it /doesn’t/. it wins you 150 points and ends the game which often leads to a victory but in /no way guarantees/ it. how else d’you think viktor krum caught the snitch, but ireland won the world cup in the 1994 world cup finale?
Evil Stan’s memories of Before are a bit of a mess – Bill surely had a hand in this. He needed Stan to hate Ford to the last atom of his being, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he inserted false memories or simply suppressed what good ones he had to twist Stan’s innate loyalty to his side.
Now, Evil Stan is not stupid. He knows Bill has messed with him, so sometimes he can’t help the intrusive thought: What was his original Ford like? He’s seen so many of them die that he can’t remember what was unique about his own.
He is, essentially, an unreliable narrator, even to himself.
