Mostly agreed. The Harry Potter story is all done now. But I wouldn't mind a story about the Founders. (And I'd be thrilled to bits with a story about Lily, the Marauders and Snape.)

Everything we need to figure this out is already right in front of us. (JKR is brilliant at hiding things in plain sight!)

That's why I've been re-reading all of the books (yes, I'm that nerdy ) in preparation for the last one.

Yes, but I would love a Molly Weasley "Recipes from the Burrow" cookbook!

I had started, but left them up in Alaska for the summer. Silly me, put "saving space in luggage" over "geeky self-interest."

I'm regretting it now. So much that I'm thinking about checking #5 and #6 out from the public library, if they're even available.

Wait... didn't I? I swore I posted to this thread this morning. Although this would totally explain why I'm not subscribed to the thread. :

OH, crap, I just figured out what I did. I thought I was answering but I was editing. I am so, so, so sorry for using my mod powers for evil. I will now go to the dungeon.

Harry: Live

Ron: Live

Hermione: Live

Lord Voldemort: DIE, VOLDIE, DIE!

Snape: Good. But he'll die.

Dumbledore: Prior knowledge

Hogwarts: Open, then closed, then open again

Horcruxes: I don't know

Deaths: Molly and Percy (but he'll die redeemed)

Ok, I think I mostly fixed it. I am so sorry.

Just for fun...

Anyone want to dissect/translate the name Voldemort? (Hint: put your schoolgirl French to use. )

OMG, Annette, I thought you were using your mod powers for evil on purpose! Thank you, thank you for a good laugh!

==============

Oh, and no sneaking off to the dungeon for you. You'll have entirely too much fun there.

The directors of the firm hired to
continue the credits after the other
people had been sacked, wish it to
be known that they have just been
sacked.

The credits have been completed
in an entirely different style at great
expense and at the last minute.

Nope, not an intentional display of humor. Just mommy brain.

Monty Python right?

My first reaction was "flight of death" and then I looked to translate a verb, or noun? where I wasn't even sure the full verb name was and then I think I found it...
It's related to stealing, larceny and flight. Catchy, non?

Harry:Live

Ron: Live

Hermione: Live

Lord Voldemort: Die

Snape: I'm really not sure! I guess I'll say he's good.

Dumbledore: No clue why he trusted Snape.

Hogwarts: Open with McGonagall as headmistress.

Horcruxes: What objects do you think are horcruxes? Diary, Nagini, Locket... I need to do some serious rereading.

Deaths: Snape? Percy? Oh, I hope Neville is ok. He always seems to get into trouble.

I don't have any other predictions, but in the final book (Oh how it hurts to see that in writing!), I want answers on these topics:
  • Why Dumbledore trusted Snape
  • Neville (his family history + I think he will do great things in the future + I want him to find his true love)
  • Percy (he better get back with his family!)
  • Ginny; I think she's special... I want more details.
  • Harry's eyes and how they're just like his mothers. Was that "solved" yet?
  • I want Dumbledore to say "just kidding, I faked dying!"
  • I want them to find all the horcruxes and finish off Voldemort. No loose ends!
  • I want them to all live happily ever after.

Thank you...I was wondering about that for awhile, but didn't have a chance to pull GOF out to find it.

Harry: will die valiantly

Ron: Will live

Hermione: Will live

Lord Voldemort: he will die with harry

Snape: Snape is goo and will take a part in Voldemort's demise

Dumbledore: He has an unbreakable vow with snape to help harry defeat voldemort

Hogwarts: hogwarts will be closed

Horcruxes: harry, the locket, the cup, the sword, nangini, something of hufflepuff's but I can't remember what she had, and voldemort himself is the 7th piece

Deaths: Lupin probably won't make it,, something will happen to wormtail and Lucius malfoy

Draco will resurface as will percy weasley.

Oh, one more prediction:

Luna Lovegood's father will finally find his Crumple Horned Snorkack.

Ooo, I really like some of these theories! I didn't know about the Arthurian hallows. The title makes much more sense now.

I also think Neville was memory charmed (by Lockhart, maybe? ).

The Petunia thing is going to be interesting, but I don't think she'll perform magic. Maybe Dudley will? But I love the idea of Filch finally doing it to protect the school--or maybe just Mrs. Norris! There's a lot of time spent in the second book on Filch's Qwikspell course, and it doesn't really affect the plot of book 2 so it's got to be there for a reason.

I agree with the idea that there's too much about the night Lily and James were killed that is unknown. I just reread the first book for the first time and the timelines just don't add up. McGonagall sits at Privet drive all day the next day and Harry arrives with Hagrid the following evening. Hagrid says "He fell asleep over Bristol," which would indicate that they came straight from Godric's Hollow. I find it hard to believe that a magical motorcycle journey could take 12 hours! That's why I think there's some sort of time travel involved somewhere.

A couple more interesting things from my rereadings:

Dumbledore apparates without noise in the first chapter of the first book. I think this may be significant. He can also make himself invisible without a cloak. Now, if he's a bumblebee animagus as some of the theories I've seen suggest, that would explain it. Otherwise, it's yet to be explained.

It means "flight (as in running away) from death".

Because Lord Voldemort fears death, and so "has gone further than anyone down the path toward immortality."

I think this is important, and, together with his underestimation of the power of love, will be key in the defeat of Lord Voldemort and the "rescue" of Tom Riddle.

(Umm, yeah, I did stay up all night re-reading my notes on the first six books. So? )
