Just finished re-reading four, wow, definately my favorite!!!
I thought I had remembered something about volde beating the death curse and realized why....
In four it says that Voldemort had spent years taking potions and what not to become imortal, there wasnt enough mortal left in him for the death curse to kill him entirely when he attacked harry as a baby.
Then I also realized when Fudge (the stupid freakin idiot) takes a demontor with him to see crouch and the demontor kisses crouch they state that crouch has now happened to him what is "Worse Than Death"
It also states that Voldemort was not able to return to his old immortal self but he had to settle with becoming MORTAL, maybe this is why dumbledore has the look of satisfaction in his eye when harry was telling him about the blood thing, even thought volde has defended himself with harry's blood which dumbledore also states in four, volde is mortal and more than likely it would take him years again to get to a state of immortality.
Not really on the current topics at all but I think I've just noticed a mistake.
Been reading book 2 and Percy (when he's a prefect) takes 5 points from Griffindor from Ron and Harry. But in book 5 we're told that prefects don't have the power to take points. Anyone else noticed this, or any other possible mistakes?
"Harry saw something silvery dart out of it (Dumbledore's wand) and streak away through the trees like a ghostly bird" (book 4 after Harry finds mad Crouch and gets Dumbledore and they find Krum stunned)
Is Dumbledore's patronus a phoenix?
Did it say what Ron's patronus was in book 5? I remember Hermione's being an otter but I can't think what Ron's was.
I wonder what special powers Dumbledore has. I maen like secret weapons or something, you know to make him the best wizard. Either that or Dumbledore is one heck of a dueller. I wonder if he is an animagus, or something.
Is it possible that Aunt Petunia did have some powers? Does it absolutely say that lily had powers and not petunia? I know it says that Petunia was all pissy when she talked about lily getting the letter to go to hogwarts and that petunia felt lily wasnt special but just a freak.
I just find it odd that only one sibling would have the powers, look at the creevy brothers, they both have powers and their parents are muggles.
What if Petunia did have powers and went to Hogwarts for a short time and something really bad happened, or maybe she was just an outcast and Lily wasnt when she went, so Petunia quit and wanted nothing to do with magic or the magical world. In the beginning of book five, she did seem to understand what demonters were, and it also seemed that she had a little more of history with dumbledore then just harry being left on the doorstep.
And of course she isnt going to let on now, exspecially since her husband is sooooo against it.
Just a thought.........
