Which is where Kreacher will come in.

I think Kreacher went along for the ride with Regalus to the lake to retrieve the real Horcrux, so he knows darn well that this particular locket isn't just a family heirloom. It's either in Kreacher's "den" or in the attic- but it's somewhere at 12 Grimmauld Place and Kreacher can locate it in a nanosecond.

Perhaps Regalus took care of the locket horcrux back in those early years after Voldemort's fall. Once he destroyed the power of the locket, it would be harmless, just as Dumbledore wore the ring after it was no longer a horcrux. Thus it would have no significance, and having it tossed out with the trash wouldn't be a problem. ??? I dunno, just a thought.

Anyway, something struck me at the end of the HBP about that scene on the tower when Dumbledore dies... When Dumbledore is talking to Draco he keeps insisting that Draco is not a killer, that he still has a choice. I think that AD knew that he didn't have much longer left, and that he had an agreement with Snape to kill him in order to protect Draco, who he knew was under preasure from Voldomort. Also, I think that Snape is loyal to AD because AD has harbored Snape's mom, Eileen Prince / Irma Pince for all these years.

I'll admit, I haven't read ALL 250+ posts on this thread, so if I'm saying something totally redundant, pardon me... It just got me all excited thinking about this stuff!

Not if he's given a direct order to get the locket and bring it to Harry.

Yup, that's a good point. I hadn't thought about Kreacher sneaking off with it. I just pointed out the part about Regulus because a lot of talk about him sounded like the assumption was he was still alive. Rereading that regulus was an unhappy deatheater makes the whole thing make more sense.

Right:

Harry: Will he live or die? Will live

Ron: Will he live or die? Ditto

Hermione: Will she live or die? Ditto

Lord Voldemort: Will he live or die? Will die

Snape: Is he good or bad? Will he live or die? Good, will die

Dumbledore: Why did he trust Snape? because he knew that he was in love with Lily Potter and truly understood that he hated LV for killing her

Hogwarts: Will it be open or closed? Temp.closed but then reopened

Horcruxes: What objects do you think are horcruxes?

Deaths: Who else do you think will die? Ginny Weasely

Please add any other predictions. The more, the merrier!

I think that Ginny will die saving Harry, a complete circle from the Lilly and harry at the start. I think true love will out wit Voldermort in the end and once all the Horcruxes are destroyed he will this time truly be killed by the Adava Kedavra reflecting back off Ginny who will stand in front of Harry. harry will be left with a new scar - hence the last word possibly being scar.\

But what do I know..........

The Trio: I HOPE they all live, but am feeling like one of them will die.

Lord Voldemort: Will he live or die? He'll definitely die

Snape: Is he good or bad? Will he live or die? He's on the right side (but still a cranky man), and will die.

Dumbledore: Why did he trust Snape? I'm not entirely sure... but I do think he was in love with Lilly... I also am intrigued by the idea of Irma Pince being his mom in hiding.

Hogwarts: Will it be open or closed? it will be closed for part of the book, but open for another part

Horcruxes: What objects do you think are horcruxes? For some reason I don't speculate much about this... but you've got the diary, ring, and locket already. I like the idea of one being something he'll find clues about at Godric's Hollow, maybe Rowena Ravenclaw's wand... I don't know

Deaths: Who else do you think will die? I too have a feeling Ginny will die. Harry wants so much to protect her, that it seems quite likely. I really hope not, because I like Harry and Ginny together, so I really hope JKR surprises me on this one. If she doesn't, I do believe another Weasley family member will die -- I'm thinking probably Mr. Weasley. I think Hagrid will probably die.

Reminder - No HP7 Spoilers on this thread!

I wanted to post here and make sure everyone saw AnnetteMarie's sticky in Books, Music and other Media. It is the only HP and the deathly hallows thread, no spoilers are to be posted, even with spoiler tags on any other thread.

Anybody placing spoilers anywhere other than in this thread will be sent to the Dungeon, with Snape. (Book Snape, not Alan Rickman Snape)

So, hang on tight and get ready...
I won't link to the thread from here because I don't want someone to accidentally click on it and end up accidentally finding spoilers. If you are looking for the official Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows spoiler thread its in the sticky section.
