    Summary

    When Voldemort had Cedric Diggory killed, he said this: kill the spare.

    Hannah heard it whispered in the hallways, too, right behind "sheep" and "not smart/not brave/not cunning" and simply "Puff." Potions with Snape was always a treat. He hated Harry Potter, but the black and yellow earned his disdain. Even Flitwick sometimes sighed when Justin Finch-Fletchley just couldn't quite figure out a charm.

    And Hannah, in her quiet, accustomed, burning way, fumed.

    We are not spare parts.

    You think we're your cast offs. You think we're the kids no other House wanted to take.

    Well, here's a clue for you, suckers. This is a story about choice. The wand chooses the wizard but the wizard chooses the House. When that Hat goes on your head, it doesn't forbid you things, it offers them to you.

    We are not your castoffs. We're just the kids who didn't choose you.

    Summary

    It is held among the Elves that when Dwarves die, they return to the rock from whence they were hewn in the beginning, but that is not the belief of the Dwarves. It is said in their lore that they are accorded a place in the Halls of Mandos which Aulë their maker has set aside for them, and this is indeed the truth.
