Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

Interesting enough idea, though I was hit with an odd thought-- Maybe she meant ABERFORTH Dumbledore. JK is a very sneaky woman

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

I agree that the Inferi will be of significance in book 7. The early references to them in HBP led me to believe they would be more of a factor in that book than they were. Their appearance toward the end of the book was limited. I had expected much more. So in DH, how difficult it would be for Harry and any who aid him to have to battle reanimated friends and family members. Very interesting potential twist.

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

That would definatlly be a chilling sciene to read - Harry defending himself against those he cared about...seeing his parents, Sirius, or Dumbledore being used as a puppet of Voldemort's.

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

Ewww---- especially if the bodies involved have been buried for 16 years!

I just have to ask, though: Did Dumbledore leave a body to be reanimated, knowing what he did about Voldemort & his minions? Since his body was surrounded by flames, which then transformed into the white marble tomb, I suspect that he was actually cremated. A very wise choice, given the dark forces his Order is warring against!

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

But if he was cremated, why would there have been a casket at the funeral? As a decoy possibly?

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

I don't think James and Lily could be Inferi; Voldemort wasn't around after their deaths to gather their bodies and I have the impression his DEs were too shocked and dismayed to do anything of the sort. By the time Voldemort was restored to his body, I think it would be too late.

Of course, he could probably transfigure Inferi to look like anyone he wanted.

I think Florbunda has a good idea. I don't think there was a casket; in "The White Tomb" we're told that "Hagrid was walking slowly up the aisle between the chairs. He was crying quite silently, his face gleaming with tears, and in his arms, wrapped in purple velvet spangled with golden stars, was what Harry knew to be Dumbledore's body." The kids couldn't see what happened at the front after Hagrid put the body on the marble table there. But I don't see any mention of a casket.

Yes, I guess there was no actual mention of a casket, I just kind of assumed...

Well you know what they say about someone who assumes...

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

Like Ayumidah I thought about Aberforth Dumbledore in response to JKR's statement but it probably does refer to Albus. Most likely, I think it is Dumbledore's protrait that is being referred to here.

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

This idea is quite disturbing.

I think Jo meant Albus Dumbledore since she said he's dead, in response to Dan's question.

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

That would be rather disturbing, facing Dumbledore's body...eugh, I hope it doesn't come to that!

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

I respectfully disagree. In 784 pages, I think Harry only will be finding Horcruxes and battling Voldemort at the end. The mention of Inferi in the early part of the Half-Blood Prince foreshadowed what would happen later in the same book (the Inferi in the cave). JK does this alot, like Mrs. Weasly's use of the Accio charm to snatch away Fred and George's "sweets" at the beginning of the Goblet of Fire, which foreshadowed Harry's learning of the charm before the first task. Inferi could have been slid in solely to serve a major purpose in HBP alone. To say that Inferi must play an important part in the final part of the septology is too strong of a statement.

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

interesting theory and really most frightening. can you imagine a reanimated ron or hermione coming after harry? the thought gives me goosebumps !!!

although interesting I can only hope that jo will not resort to so devastating an obstacle course for harry to overcome.

Maybe she's already writing a new book. Albus Dumbledore and the Twice Crooked Nose Twins, or something like that.

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

I think rowling is talking about Aberforth Dumbledore- he is a very troubled person as we all know.

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

I don't think JKR plays games like that. Nor do I think that Albus Dumbledore would consent to his brother's dying in his place; he had no fear of death and was obviously suffering from a serious injury all year long. Aside from Dumbledore's jokes about Aberforth and the goats, what makes anyone think that Aberforth is "troubled"?

There are a number of ways we could still see Albus in DH, though--in Pensieve, portrait, or dream.

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

Why do you people come to the obvious conclusions like Snape is good, Dumbledore will be back, we are gonna see sirus again etc? Just becuase Dumbledore passed a silly comment about Aberforth doesn't conclude his character. Honestly we dunno much about Aberforth, do you? He was present at the funeral- it shows he really respects his bro or he wouldn't have shown up. Sirus was troubled- but did he look like he was? did anyone guess how sirius felt except Harry?

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

Yes I don't see any really compelling evidence that suggests Harry will face Dumbledore and others as inferi. But it is an interesting and spooky theory.

Re: Dead Dumbledore Definitely Distressing

I always assumed that dumbledore's body had been transfigured into the white tomb, during the blinding flash of light. He did leave arrangements for burial with the transfiguration teacher. I think he may have considered sinister uses for his own corpse.

I agree that Voldy will defintly use inferi though as they're so immoral and just plain scary.
