You heard it here first

So, as I hope you are all aware, we are in the serious counting-down phase here. Two more months till... oh, come on, you know what I'm talking about... Harry Potter, Book The Seventh And Final.

For posterity's sake, this is what I think:

1. Snape is evil. Anyone who thinks otherwise is (not to be overly harsh here) delusional.

2. Dudley was born a wizard and Aunt Petunia had him Squibified. This is the terrible memory he relived in Book Six, at the beginning when you you-know-whats came to Little Whinging. (Being vague here in case you haven't read Book Six.)

3. MHH thinks that in the last chapter, in which we are told we will find out what eventually happens to the surviving character, we'll find out that Hermione will become headmistress.

That's it.

How about the initials for the person who took the actual Horcrux? I think it is Serius' brother and Harry will have a new guardian after all.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if Crookshanks was actually Lily Potter? And James is some else as well and they really didn't die?

Israel Mom said...

No, I'm sure they died.

And Regulus Black, Sirius' brother, is probably also dead.

I think that all that is important because Harry needs to do this alone.

I'm not convinced that Snape is evil, and that's because I think JK Rowling is trying really hard to make us think that he is.

I wish I had more of an idea about what's going to happen, but I didn't know that you were such a big fan and I love you that much more for that! We really should be friends :)

No, Lily and James and definitely dead. I think RAB is Susan Bones' aunt, Madam Bones. She was killed earlier in the book, remember? Crookshanks isn't an Animagus. JKR has said so. There's definitely something funny about him, though.

And IM, where do you live? The year after next we may be a bit closer by.

Hey, that would be great if I could get to know you in person instead of just stalking your blog and reading all the wonderfully written posts!

I'm in Jerusalem ... if you have any questions about moving here or anything else, let me know.

Looking forward!

I, too, think Snape is not all evil (anymore).

But I think JKR has been casting nasty aspersions in a hinting sort of way on the beloved Dumbledore, so I'm rather expecting/dreading an unpleasant unmasking somewhere in the 1000 or so pages the Last Book will probably run to.

In about a month I'll probably start speed-reading the last couple of books to prep for picking the story back up again. Which means that no (un?)necessary reading will be done.

Oh, paskan marjat, I just packed all the HP books up, too. And here you are with theories that make me want to reread Books 5 and 6 and take notes this time.

I suppose I could go through the boxes if the urge grows. There's only...35 of them now to tear open and sort through.

Israel Mom said...

Dumbledore, huh? I never thought anything other than "good, through and through" about him. Interesting theory, but I still think he's pretty solid. SOMEONE has to be all good, and I think he's it.

Any more theories? I'm liking this topic!

oh dear. I am in the delusional camp.
