This is a bit off subject, but i was reading sumthing about hp and it said that some one that wanted to learn magic would learn it in the 6th or 7th book. It was just a theory (i think) but i'm rereading the series, and i read that Filch is a squib and he was trying to learn magic by that quickspell thing and it brought to my attention that he might be the 1 that learns magic (if it wasn't just a theory) in the 6th or 7th book. Plus it isn't a very big part in the book, and JKR said that sumthin in the 2nd book that wasn't very big would play a part in the next book.and Filch being a squib (in my opinoin) wasn't a very big part. I dunno if anyone agrees with me but i was just felt like stating that.
Remember my post about how lily and james escaped voldemort three times? Well only one person answered so i was wondering if anyone else had an opinion.... We know lily and james escaped voldemort three times, but only harry has survived the killing curse. why did'nt voldemort try to kill them? (or nevill's parents for that matter)
Sorry if i sound persistent :P
I think again dumbeldore will be forced to leave the school in secret. Harry is very worried. He goes down to visit hagrid. During the visit harry sees dumbledore's pensive in hagrid's house. He wants to see if hagrid saw dumbledore leave, so he sneaks downin the middle of the night. He accidently see's the memory of when his parents die. He hears the conversation between voldemort and james, then voldemort and lily. He finds out lily was a death eater.
Well, James and Lily were part of the Order of the Phoenix, as well as Neville's parents. That means that they would have come up against the Death Eaters and Voldemort evn quite a few times. Maybe then, Voldemort tried to kill them, and they escaped three times. At this time, Voldemort probably didn't know that Lily was going to have Harry, and Voldemort probably didn't have a specific reason to try and kill them apart from the fact that they were part of the order. then Voldemort might have found out that that Harry was born through Pettigrew, and then specifically came after them. Dunno if I quite know what I'm talking about or even if it answers your question Siriusfan. if it doesn't then sorry, cause I don't really know the answer. We'll just have to wait for the next books.
I wonder if Dumbledore told Lily and James about the whole prophecy or just what Voldemort knew. i'm guessing no, because surely they would have told Lupin and Sirius about this, unless they were told not to tell anyone. And do you think that Dumbledore knew that one of the close friends was untrustworthy and could be a spy?
I don't think that J K Rowling will use the storyline of Dumbledore being forced to leave Hogwarts again, because she doen't seem to like repeating things. Though using a pensieve to reveal secrets would be pretty good, unless there's somethig else to reveal past memories or secrets.
Hmmm...appologies this isn't really carrying anything on, just wondering how many new characters people think will be introduced in the next two books- and which characters will figure more prominantly in the plots- in the most recent we had new: Tonks, the man with her *can't remember name- need to reread book!* and we found out alot more about Mrs Figg and ______(?)...
*tries to think of characters from previous books seemingly insignificant* hmmm...
The guy who Harry met in the first year, the one who kept bowing to him and came to his house in the 5th book (Diggles?) was barely mentioned. And if Crookshanks is an animagi form, then the animagus. Sorry can't think of anyone else. It's too late.
i agree w/ some of your ideas. i think that harry might play quidditch for england. that way he wouldn't have to make ginny go to a different position so that he can be seeker again. i would like for him to be seeker for england's team. i think hagrid may die but i am pretty sure that mcgonagall will (i have always like her tho). i also think that harry may sacrifice himself to kill voldemort. well thats just my input and what i think may happen in the books to come.
i dont think that harry will become a professor but i do think that he will be able to be in touch with sirius by either standing in front of the veil or maybe somehow going into the veil and being able to come back out with sirius.
Ah mate your wrong anyway Harry is not half blood and is not equal to vold. lilly and james potter were both wizard/witch so that makes harry pure blood! and vold had a dad who was muggle and a mum who was witch so that makes him half blood! see
well i rekon there will be an 8th book but not till 2010 and it will be 6 years say after when he was in his seventh year at hogwarts and show what harry has done and maybe vold does not die atall and it is the final duel then!
why did i put that there lol
Xenon, I think you could be right about another way of seeing the past. Maybe since Harry still does not know occlumency, he will enter voldemort's mind so far that he can see voldemort's memory's/thoughts. I think this will happen, and he will find out about a secret attack on the order. He tells the order and the attack fails. Then it would not be so bad that harry did not learn occlumency. Then he has to make a choice: not to learn occlumecy and be able to see what voldemort is thinking, but voldemort can posses harry and make harry see things that are not real, or learn it and not be able to help the order. It will be interesting to see which choice he makes. He does not want another Sirius like case, but we all know he REALLY wants to be in/help the order. What do u guys think?
Ok, I finished Book 6 a while ago. Now here are some things that happened near the end of book 6. Neville goes and escapes to kill Bellatrix. He fails and dies a horrible death. Harry is astounded and very angry over his friend's death. Voldemort controls his mind and Harry fights back to find him somehow in Albania, next to Voldemort and all other followers. He immediately sees Bellatrix and shouts Avada Kedavra! He kills her, avenging Sirius, Neville, and Frank and Alice. Voldemort laughs and wouldn't stop. Harry cries SHUT UP! He yells Crucio! Voldemort remains laughing. Suddenly Harry is back in his room in the Gryffendor tower. More happens later, but I wont spoil it.
