Summer KnightEdit

Main article: Summer Knight (novel)

In Summer Knight, she gave Harry threads of unraveling in Summer Knight to undo Aurora's spell on Lily. It's a magical item that would 'undo' any placed enchantment.[5]

Cold DaysEdit

Main article: Cold Days

In Cold Days, when Harry tried to summon Mother Winter he used the names Athropos (one of the three Fates, the one who cuts the thread), and Skuld (one of the Norns in Norse mythology).[6]

Mother Summer later notes to Harry that she reacted badly to his summons because her "walking stick" is missing and she finds it painful to travel without it.(reference needed)
