Very slowly, his sunken gaze never leaving Lupin's face, Black nodded.
PROFESSOR TRELAWNEY'S PREDICTION
"All right, then," Black said, without taking his eyes off the rat.
And then he saw it. The Snitch was sparkling twenty feet above him.
"You see, Severus?" said Lupin, turning back to Snape. "It looks like a Zonko product to me --"
Ron had taken over responsibility for Buckbeak's appeal. When he wasn't doing his own work, he was poring over enormously thick volumes with names like The Handbook of Hippogriff Psychology and Fowl or Foul? A Study of Hippogriff Brutality. He was so absorbed, he even forgot to be horrible to Crookshanks.

"They couldn't keep me company as humans, so they kept me company as animals," said Lupin. "A werewolf is only a danger to people. They sneaked out of the castle every month under James's Invisibility Cloak. They transformed... Peter, as the smallest, could slip beneath the Willow's attacking branches and touch the knot that freezes it. They would then slip down the tunnel and join me. Under their influence, I became less dangerous. My body was still wolfish, but my mind seemed to become less so while I was with them.";
