    I don't think that she'd really change the story though. I mean she has the whole story planned out. I think she likes the impact her stories have on people, and the fact that her books give people so much enjoyment. She's probably curious to see how much we can guess anywhere near acurately.
    My thought was that Petunia and Lily's parents were killed by Voldie too. Is Harry's uncle just plain prejudiced then, if he has no reason to hate magic.
    I dont know he is a jerk but maybe it is something that happend with the whole family there if dudley remembers it.......

    yeah i agree but i still think he has to have a additional reason to hate the magic world and if something happend to them that dudley saw (and then again when the dementor came) Vernon must have been there 2

    yeah i think it had to be something much worse then that if its what he saw when the dementors came i know it would have sucked if it happend to me but i dont think it would be the worst moment of my life (like harrys parents dying that is much worse)

    Thats what i always thought. He just hated them. Like in the slave trade, people hated black people for no reason at all.

    Thats sort of when we discuessed "What would you see if you saw a boggert", only the dementor forces you to relive the worse memeries of your life.

    Did anyone watch Room 101 last night. It was the one with Linda Smith. And she put in adults who read Harry Potter and people who read LOTR.

    I'm thining of the way Dudley reacted to the dementor attack. Went all shaky and ended up throwing up. His reaction was almost as bad as Harry's first encounter. It just makes me think he could have been reliving something much worse than the embarrassment of having a pigs tail.

    I don't know what I'd see. I think I've had a pretty easy life in general. Nothing too traumatic! I think my boggart would be a burglar though. (I know I've said it on many occassions, damn burglars terrify me!)

    I agree with you.

    Maybe Dudley had been there when Harry got attacked.

    At Godric's Hollow? Nah, if he was there, then there would be little chance of him not making a noise and getting killed by Voldie. Plus, he would have been too young to be curious enough to check out the scene. Maybe the even does involve the grandparents, affecting the whole family. Maybe this was before Harry came to lve with them

    He would have done some sort of accidental magic if this was so. Surely Harry would have suspected something, but there had been no sign of this.

    And can you imagine Dudley keeping quiet about about not being alolowed to go, he would have kicked up such a stink!

    Add to the fact that Dugley would have been sent a letter at the same time as Harry asking him to go.

    yep, I think we can rule out that theory. But I think its possible that their grandparents deaths are relevant

    I don't think so though. JK said in that interveiw that we will learn about Harrys grandparents, but it isn't really that revenant.

    There are two characters i wish could have entered the books, but disappeared. One being the famous Weasley Cousin, and the second being Herimonies little sister.
