This thread is so cool! It was so interesting to hear all the insights to the book. For I have none. I am just so angry about Sirius death. Really. And I need to get over it I guess. The obit. got me too.

T Does the depiction of the house-elves bother anyone else?
It seems to me rather racist.....for lack of a better word. They seem more like slaves than servants, and it seems to me that their language (syntax) is supposed to be depicting slaves.

I agree Harry should apologize. He completely violated Severus' trust, Snape was truly trying to help him this time and Harry really screwed up.

Mickey is to tease or ridicule.
Patronus means patron saint. There is a catholic Saint Godric that has something to do with a stag. Rowling knows her stuff. Someone pointed out that Flamel was a real person. I think the stag and Saint Godric is not a coincidence. I also think that Voldermort's connection to Harry has to be about something more than him being almost killed when the spell struck back on him.
|Well I didn't see any greatly written slash except for that it seemed in one that abi linked me to that was not slash but had slash in it, where Draco Malfoy seemed to be having some kind of relation with some form of Voldemort.|
|hey abi let's grab Harry when he's not suspecting it and take him to the dungeons bwahaha|
|I do think it was weak of Snape to discontinue teaching Harry, BUT I think if Harry had gone back, he would have continued the lessons|

The whole thing with the other races of magical creatures being thought less, even muggles being thought less, the centaurs thinking they were more... it's pretty much an allegory.

Does anyone else see JKR writing another potter book after the first seven. I'd like to see what the famous trio are up to 5 or 10 years after school. Or, maybe, just maybe, I need a life?

I just have trouble believing THAT was Snapes worst memory. I mean, yes, things that happened during our adolescence are magnified by hormones and now by time, etc.... but come on! The guy was an inner circle Death Eater! And then he walked away from it! The WORST thing EVER in his life was THAT? I dunno. I think more to the point it was the memory he MOST wanted Harry not to see. Perhaps even to allow Harry to keep his ideas of James happy ones. OR.... he knew Potter would snoop and made a point of dropping it in the Pensieve right in front of him night after night to tempt him to look at it because he wanted Harry to see the REAL James. (He could easily have done the little chore with the pensieve a few minutes before Harry arrived... right?)

|I keep wondering, though, how Snape is going to be able to spy for the OOP -- after all Voldie in Quirrell heard him threaten Quirrell and knows that S is pro Dumbledore. Also, V even refers to S as the one who thinks he has left us forever (I'm certain I'm paraphrasing, but you get the gist) in Goblet.|

Does anyone else think that Crookshanks is also an animagus? I firmly believe he is...that he might even be a she, maybe Lily. After all, others have shown up alive. I'm re-reading Azkaban right now, and Crookshanks responds to Scabbers so quickly and angrily, and also responds to Ron talking about Scabbers, i.e., when he talks about Scabbers sleeping in his bookbag and Crookshanks immediately attacks the bag. Anyway, that's my newest guess at clue searches. [/B]
