in any event- I totally agree on the gleam of triumph- I think its that Voldie is killable now as well- I don't think it would be interesting if Dumbledore turned out evil- I think it would be really pathetic- like he betrayed the readers as well as the characters- I'd be mad and not read the books again- I do think there is something to him killing that other wizard... I guess we'll have to wait and see
I was thinking about it and I think the one thing linking all the books is Fawkes- he's becoming more and more important- I think something big will be revealed about him later on- we thought we knew all his powers in book 2, but he showed some new ones in book 5- I think hes got more up his .... erm.. feathers-
Percy CAN go bad- I doubt the Maruaders thought Peter would- and look what happened there- and as we've seen with Sirius, you don't always go the way your family raised you-
Fudge getting a mysterious illness eh?
Fudge seemed to be characterised as genuinely scared when he saw Voldemort return in the Ministry of Magic Book 5. Almost terrified. Sure you could say that is because of the reign of terror before Harry's birth, but I think there was something more to it. Eveyone else seemed to accept it a little more readily. Fudge went to extreme measures in order to have people believe Voldermort's rise was a lie. Perhaps Fudge will have to do something, has he crossed paths with Voldemort before?
I think it'd be interesting if the mystery power in the room and Harry turned out to be guilt.
It'd certainly be a deserving fate for Voldemort -maybe Harry could channel it into him.
