    How else could it be?
    The last chapter might just be simply closing the series, almost an epilogue, as there is literally no book, including previous harry potter books than have ended with the climax without having a rundown chapter afterwards.

    Well, if it is an epilogue, that means that it cannot contain the showdown between harry and voldermort then, can it?

    I don't think it will be an epilogue. The last line is supposedly, "Harry, where's your scar?" that doesn't sound much like an epilogue to me.

    Thats exactly how I envisage the series ending. JK's already said we won't need any later books as she plans to let us know what happens to everyone. That just seems like the easiest way to do it.

    But it could be.

    I do agree that it isn't likely.

    Makes sense I guess. In Book 4 Harry simply said accio broomstick to get his firebolt in the first task. Though I would have thought that anyone sent to Azkaban for a life sentence would have their wand broken. Hagrid had his broken for supposedly opening the Chamber of Secrets and Harry was threatened with having his broken just for a bit of improper use of magic. I was thinking that using the unforgivable curses was improper too. Strange, but JKR really does seem to be leaving some gaping holes in the story.
    I don't think she was counting on an army of fans tearing apart every letter and word she wrote!

    I must say that in most books that you read, especially fantasy, there are many aspects that are mentioned breifly that are left unexplained fully. Do we actually know how old fawkes is for instance, or the full background of the first assension (sp) to power of voldermort.
    JK did mention somewhere that she would go into more details about the birth of voldie (or it way have been tom riddle) in the next books. Also, my feeling is that Fawkes is around 1000 years old if he belonged to griffindor originally

    Indeed. Dumbledore also said that Flamel had enough stocks of the elixir (sp) to set his affairs in order. I still think Dumbledore is using the stone, otherwise why didn't he destroy it at the beginning of the book? He knew someone was after it, but risked it being stolen anyway?
    I think dumbledore is not very old by wizarding standards, so has no need to use it at present. He probably did not destroy it earlier because he was unable to convince flamel. I think dumbledore must have taken to stone from flamel for safe keeping the day voldemort attacked harry and turned into spirit form, because then dumbledore would have known the stone's significance to voldie and that he would try to steal it.

    As to how dumbledore knew that gringott's would be broken into at that very point is not known, after all hagrid removed the stone just in the nick of time!

    If he is over 1000 years old, it is possible that he is godric gyriffindor himself, in animal state. An animagus can stay in animal form for many years, that has been shown and it seems quite possible that the animagus will gain whatever virtues the animal has.

    Yes, that's who I meant. But you have to agree that it is quite a coincidence, even in potter terms.
