Re: All about the prophecy: meaning, significance and wording

I do not remember where i read it but didn't JK confirm that the prophecy is only referring to Harry and LV? Also i have sworn that she said that people were reading to much into the prophecy and that it wasn't as complex as people thought?My main problem with all of the Snape/Neville/Other ultimately defeats LV is that it diminishes Harry's role.Sure he may significantly help and all but the whole story is centered between the intrinsic and external conflict between HARRY and the DL.I think adding Snape into the prophecy takes away from the book.However, i do think Snape will be one of the major characters in the story whether good,bad or other.

Re: All about the prophecy: meaning, significance and wording

I think her birthday is September 19. Thats the middle of the month.

*Goes to check wikipedia*

Yep, September 19. She's almost a year older than Harry.

Re: All about the prophecy: meaning, significance and wording

Hermione is born on 19th September 1979, she's definately older than Harry, which is why she was able to pass her apparations test in HBP, unlike Harry who had to wait.

Having said that, she is born before the prophecy was made as Dumbledore tells us, the prophecy was made shortly before Harry was born.

Re: All about the prophecy: meaning, significance and wording

let me guess, someone tried to spoil it.

Okay, I've been thinking about this and I'm changing my opinion to just the simple meaning, that either Harry has to kill LV or LV has to kill Harry.
