Did Fred och George berätta någonsin var de fick pengarna?


I slutet av HP och Fire of Fire ger Harry sina vinster från Triwizard Turneringen till Fred och George så att de kan skapa sin skämtbutik. Han verkar också vilja att dom inte ska berätta för någon.

"Fred - George - wait a moment."
The twins turned. Harry pulled open his trunk and drew out his Triwizard winnings.
"Take it," he said, and he thrust the sack into George's hands.
"What?" said Fred, looking flabbergasted.
"Take it," Harry repeated firmly. "I don't want it."
"You're mental," said George, trying to push it back at Harry.
"No, I'm not," said Harry. "You take it, and get inventing. It's for the joke shop."
"He is mental," Fred said in an almost awed voice.
"Listen," said Harry firmly. "If you don't take it, I'm throwing it down the drain. I don't want it and I don't need it. But I could do with a few laughs. We could all do with a few laughs. I've got a feeling we're going to need them more than usual before long."
"Harry," said George weakly, weighing the money bag in his hands, "there's got to be a thousand Galleons in here."
"Yeah," said Harry, grinning. "Think how many Canary Creams that is." The twins stared at him.
"Just don't tell your mum where you got it... although she might not be so keen for you to join the Ministry anymore, come to think of it. . . ."
"Harry," Fred began, but Harry pulled out his wand.
"Look," he said flatly, "take it, or I'll hex you. I know some good ones now. Just do me one favour, OK? Buy Ron some different dress robes and say they're from you."

Givet tvillingarna - eller, för den delen, Harry - någonsin berätta för någon annan (som Ron, Hermione eller Mrs Weasley) om denna transaktion? Om inte, hur sa de säga att de fick pengarna att skapa sin skämtbutik?

Props till Kai som kom dit först.

Harry bekräftar säkert Ron och Hermione i Harry Potter och Phoenix-ordningen som han gav Fred och George guldet.

(Kontext: Det här är strax efter Fred och Georges flykt efter posten)

'It'll be my fault Fred and George left, you wait,' said Ron darkly. 'She'll say I should've stopped them leaving, I should've grabbed the ends of their brooms and hung on or something ... yeah, it'll be all my fault.'


'Yeah, but that's another thing, how did they get premises?' ... 'It's a bit dodgy, isn't it? They'll need loads of Galleons to afford the rent on a place in Diagon Alley. She'll want to know what they've been up to, to get their hands on that sort of gold.'

'Well, yes, that occurred to me, too,' said Hermione, ... 'I've been wondering whether Mundungus has persuaded them to sell stolen goods or something awful.'

'He hasn't,' said Harry curtly.

'How do you know?' said Ron and Hermione together.

'Because -' Harry hesitated, but the moment to confess finally seemed to have come. There was no good to be gained in keeping silent if it meant anyone suspected that Fred and George were criminals. 'Because they got the gold from me. I gave them my Triwizard winnings last June.'


But this is excellent!' said Ron, looking thrilled. 'It's all your fault, Harry - Mum can't blame me at all! Can I tell her?'

'Yeah, I suppose you'd better,' said Harry dully, ''specialy if she thinks they're receiving stolen cauldrons or something.'

Om Fred och George visste att Harry hade berättat Ron och Hermione så sägs det inte. Inte heller är det sagt vad deras officiella linje var. Det bekräftas inte heller om Ron berättade för Mrs Weasley eller inte.

I början av Phoenix-ordningen antar Harry att fru Weasley ännu inte vet, och fruktar vad som skulle hända om hon fick reda på:

Harry watched them go, feeling slightly uneasy. It had just occurred to him that Mr. and Mrs. Weasley would want to know how Fred and George were financing their joke shop business when, as was inevitable, they finally found out about it. Giving the twins his Triwizard winnings had seemed a simple thing to do at the time, but what if it led to another family row and a Percylike estrangement? Would Mrs. Weasley still feel that Harry was as good as her son if she found out he had made it possible for Fred and George to start a career she thought quite unsuitable? (OP9)

Även Weasley-tvillingarna berättar Mundungus Fletcher när de får de giftiga Tentacula-fröerna i kapitlet "The Woes of Mrs. Weasley", att Harry är deras ekonomiska bärare:

Mundungus stopped talking when he saw Harry, but Fred winked and beckoned Harry closer.

”It’s okay,” he told Mundungus, “we can trust Harry, he’s our financial backer.”
