Re: Official "Deathly Hallows" Prediction Contest

Okay, I want to play! Here's my take on it (mind you I am writing my own fanfic Deathly Hallows because I can't stand the wati so I have thought about this alot so some of my theories might seem very crazy but it works in my version even if they're completely off in the real one).

1. What are the Deathly Hallows?
They've got to be the horocruxes, specifically the objects that Voldmeort intented for his soul to be placed in (whether they're still there or not)

[b]2. What are the remaining horcruxes? Is Harry or his scar a horcrux?
Hufflepuff's cup is the only one that I know for sure, and Slytherin's locket I guess to (again whether it still is or not is the real question but none the less I'm confident that it was at least intented to become one). Harry is not a horocrux, nor is Ginny, nor is Harry's scar-- that would be purposturous!

3. Will Harry die?
I use to be certain that he would but then I heard that she was going to tour elementary schools sortly after the release of the book and talk to kids about it and she would be mobbed by a million screaming children and angry parents if Harry died, so my answer is no, although he might go beyond veil or die in some form but if that happens he'll find his way back to the living someway or another.

4. Without considering Harry, who else will die?
I'm not even going to attempt this one......

5. Who will redeem himself?
Snape, I'm going out on a limb here because there is so much controversy on this one, but I have to say it: Snape will redeem himself, he can't be bad he just can't be.

6. Who will be the new leader of the Order?
Again, not even going to try....

7. Is there another spy in the Death Eaters?
Well since I responded with Snape in question number 5. I guess I have to say him again in this one don't I. Oh my what a hole I dug myself....

8. Who is R.A.B.?
Well I was so proud with myself because about twenty minutes after finishing book six (two days after its release) I had concluded that Regulus Black was RAB and I was so proud and just knew that I had blown the secret of Harry Potter right open that I immediately ran to a Harry Potter fan site to submit my theory only to find REGULUS BLACK IS RAB bannered across the front page and I was crushed, but I'll go with him anyway-- RAB has to be good ol' Regulus Black.

9. Will Hogwarts reopen?
I think it has to, well at least Hagrid will always be there so if even one student wants to come than they can go live with Hagrid and learn about blast-ended skrewts for a year......poor kid.

10. Will Harry return to Hogwarts? As a student?
I didn't think he would but after much deliberation I decided he really has to go back, partly because Hogwarts is the setting of the entire series (for the most part) and also because I doubt that the Order is going to like his idea of going tromping off to fight Voldemort with just Ron and Hermione and without telling them exactly what he's up to. I think the only way for him to do it is to do what Dumbledore did when he was hunthing horocruxes, they'll go back to school, as students, and use school as their cover to make excursions to hunt for horocruxes.

11. Will the Ministry interfere more with Hogwarts (if it reopens) now that Dumbledore is gone?
I don't know so I won't try.....

12. Will there be a battle at Hogwarts?
I'll venture a guess at a minor one, not the final showdown, but maybe a small battle or just a couple of heated rows.

13. JKR says Dumbledore is properly dead, but will we see him again? How? Well, we'll see the portrait of Dumbledore but that might not be incredibly significant. I have a theory that involves DUmbledore but it doesn't really have an answer just an area that I think Dumbledore (and JKR) gave us a clue as to what's up with his death but I'll explain that in the last question. I think that yes, we will see Dumbledore again in some way or another, it could be just Harry glances at his portrait or it could be he turns out to have transmorgafied himself into the giant squid right before Snape killed him and he's currently living happily in the lake-- I guess will see.

14. Did Dumbledore beg for his life or plead with Snape to kill him?
Hmmmmm.... again I dug myself a hole by answering 'Snape' to question 5 so now I have to say that Dumbledore was pleading for Snape to kill him. Alas I hope so........

15. Why did Dumbledore trust Snape?
Ask JKR, cause I haven't the foggiest.

16. Whose side is Snape really on? (V's, Order's, his own)?
Well, I'm spending plenty of time in my little hole now aren't I? *sigh* The Order's side I suppose, or at least he was loyal to Dumbledore and whether he will remain so I don't know, but before Dumbledore's death he was on the Order's side.

17. Where did Snape take Draco at the end of HBP? Where is he hiding now?
Oh well that's an easy one, since Snape is good after all, he took Draco to a secret passageway in a toilet of the Hog's Head that lead to a bubble dome in the Lake where they met DUmbledore who revealed himself to Draco and Snape after un-transmorgafing into the Giant Squid.......NO, really I have no idea, it could have been anywhere in the universe for goodness sakes.

18. Will Harry visit the house where he was attacked in Godric's Hollow? What will he find there?
Yes he will, he has to. He will find the ruins of his house and I won't say anything else because that'll just deduct me points.

19. Aside from James, Lily, Voldemort and Harry, who else was at the house in Godric's Hollow on the night of the attack?
Hmmmm....that would have to be Stan Shunpike. Definately. JUST KIDDING! No idea whatesoever..........

20. Will Percy remain estranged from his family, or will he make amends? Ask Percy.

21. Did Percy act as a spy for Dumbledore with his connections in the Ministry?
No, he was just genuinly being a prat as usual.

22. Will Wormtail repay his life-debt to Harry?
I'm pretty sure he has to one way or another, it's a life debt you have to pay it sometime-- so yes in some fashion he will repay his debt (directly or indirectly).

23. How will Harry say goodbye to the Dursleys?
Well, I think that Dudley is actually a horocrux from when Hagrid tried to turn him into a pig in the first book and that the tail that he got removed is the horocrux and off in some land where the tail is currently residing it is growing into a full-size Voldy-pig just like the Tom Riddle thing and GInny's diary and so Harry will actually not say goodbye but embark on a heroic journey to kill the Voldy-pig with Dudley and they will have a wonderful bonding session and decide that they are really good friends and Aunt Petunia will turn into a petunia and be forever planted in their front garden. Uncle Vernon will have a tragic accident with a drill and loose his sanity. Harry will never know how to say goodbye........

OKay, okay I'm kidding, but really, who knows right?

24. What role will Aberforth play?
He'll bring Harry an army of goats that have been magically enhanced to ward off evil and cause death to any one with a Dark Mark on them. Only joking, only joking. Sorry, but I realy have no idea.......

25. What was Aberforth really doing with those goats?
Read the above answer...

26. Will Voldemort die? How? (Veil, AK, Giant Squid...)
It depends on the definition of death. I think that he will receive a fate worse than death by some means (I'm not sure how or what exactly but Voldmeort deserves more punishment than simply dying).

27. Why did Voldemort offer Lily a chance to live?
I imagine it has something to do with whatever it is that her and Harry's eyes can do.....but actually I won't make a guess on this one-- I really don't know.

28. What was Dumbledore's "gleam of triumph"?
Hmmm.....this one really scared me when I first read it and it is still as much a mystery to me now as it was then. No answer. Sorry.

29. What is the power of love?
It's ancient magic that Voldmort doesn't have and that will be his downfall. That's all I got.

30. Will Lucius escape or be released from Azkaban?
Oh my, more that I have no idea on.

31. Is Trevor more than a toad?
No.

32. Will there be an attack at Fleur & Bill's wedding?
No (at least not from Voldemort or his minions), come on now people, this is Harry's last golden day, the poor kid deserves one day of relative peace doesn't he?

33. Will Ginny join the trio in Harry's quest?
This is going to be a long anwer. I depends on the definition of 'quest'. Ginny will do whatever she needs to do to keep Harry, her family, and her friends safe. Whether that counts as joining Harry's quest in the sense of 'the fight against Voldmort' then absolutely yes-- really she already has, she backs Harry up one hundred percent with whatever he has to do to fight and has been right there beside him whenever she had the chance. Ginny is a very brave and selfless character. If she knows some way that she can help Harry even if causes her own demise, she will do it whether he protests or not. I have no doubt she'll fight with everything she has.

34. Will we see Fawkes again? Will he choose Harry as his new owner?
I don't think so, at the end of Half Blood Prince Harry says something like, "he heard that Fawkes had stopped singing and knew that he had left like Dumbledore had, left Hogwarts, left the world, left Harry." and that just seems to be JKR's way of providing closure for Fawkes character and I don't really see why she would do that if he was going to come back in book seven.

35. Will someone kill Fenrir Greyback? Who?
Yes. I hate Fenrir with a passion that burns like the sun, I personally hope that a Weasley gets him, so I'll go with that-- a Weasley will kill him.

36. What is the purpose of the veil?

Okay, there is about as much chance as this being true as there is of Voldemort winning the Nobel Peace Prize, but hey, it's the thought that counts right? Right. So here goes my crazy theory that I'm writing in my fanfic book seven: the veil is one of multiple doors that lead to a sort of center of the universe type place in which there is no measure of time and it is the source of all magic. This is the place that Harry and Voldemort are in on the US edition cover and there are a lot of doors or portals or archways or whatever you want to call them that lead to different times and places and maybe even worlds if you want to really stretch it (I gues you could concider the world of the dead or heaven and hell or limbo or whatever you believe as a seperate world from which you could reach via this center of the universe/source of magic place). So anway there are a few doors/portal/archways into this place that are in Harry's current world and time and one of them is the veil. They are creations of the most ancient magical worlds/peoples/beings and hold incredible power. Maybe another one could be Stonehedge (did I spell that right?hmmm...). Okay, this only counts as one point subtracted right? Please say yes, plese say yes, please say yes.......

37. Will we see Sirius again? How?
Yes, but only in pictures, memories, pensieves, not in the flesh.

38. Who is the dragon on the special edition US cover art?
Who? I don't really understand the question. Is it suppose to have a name or something? I suppose we can call it Ferdenand if you like......Oh no wait, this is because everyone thinks it's NOrbert right? Well, it's not Norbert (he's a Norwegein Ridgback and this is an opal eye somethin or other-- its in Magical Beasts and where to find them). SO I guess it would just be some dragon, I think I will call it Ferdenand.

39. What was Dumbledore's letter ("Remember my last") to Petunia referring to?
It was referring to his last letter that was sent directly to her and that nobody but Dumbledore and herslef knew about.

40. What other magical creatures will play a larger role in DH? (Goblins, Centaurs, Giant Squid, etc.) Will they be on the good side or the bad side? Hmm....I think that the goblins and the dementors and the giants will all have larger roles in DH in the sense that they will actually have any role at all as oppose to simply being mentioned fleetingly by proffessor Bins while Harry and Ron play hangman on a scrap peice of parchment. THe dementors and giants we already know have to the bad side ( well at least a majority if not all of them) and the goblins are really an entire race and there is no way to make all of them go one way or the other, they're just like people in the sense that some might decide to join Voldemort, some might help the Order and some might simply sit snuggly in their houses (or goblin holes or whatever it is they live in) and not take either side.


41. Anything else you want to add?
Yes as a matter of fact there is, thank you for asking.
Firstly, Ginny is going to do something spectacular in book seven in connection to her being the seventh child of her family.
Next, I think that Harry will find that there is another way to destroy horocruxes than simply finding them and stabbing them with things, something that perhaps even Dumbledore never realized.
Harry and HErmione are NOT RELATED!! OOooohhh I hope I get a point for that one.
Bill will not be a full werewolg, just as Lupin said, but he will do something odd during a full moon (perhaps there wedding night will fall on a full moon...)
Ginny will survive.
Hogwarts will get destroyed or at least damaged (I think that that brown, patch of weird masses on the US delux cover right under the dragon's tail is the ruins of Hogwarts-- sad yes I know but what else could it be?).
Finally I come to Dumbledore and this is not a theory so much as something I found that I know there is more to and that I believe must be a clue to something significant but can't imagine quite what is. In Half Blood Prince, in the chapter called the Lightning Struck Tower where Dumbledore is talking to Draco and here is the quote:
" 'I can help you Draco.'
'No you can't' said Malfoy, his wand hand shaking very badly indeed. 'Nobody can. He told me to do it or he'll kill me. I've got no choice.'
'He cannot kill you if you are already dead. Come over to the right side, Draco, and we can hide you more completely than you can possibly imagine. What is more, I can send members of the Order to your mother tonight to hide her likewise. Nobody would be surprised that you had died in you attempt to kill me-- forgive me but Lord VOldemort probably expects it. Nor would the Death Eaters be surprised we had captured and killed your mother-- it is what they would do themselves afterall. Your father is safe at the moment in Azkaban....When the time comes, we can protect him too. Come over to the right side, Draco... you are not a killer.....' "
Before I reread this passage I had been entertaining the idea that Dumbledore did infact plan his death to some advantage to himself ( an idea that i had previously thought was absolute rubbish) but the moment I read that first line where Dumbledore says "they cannnot kill you if you are already dead" I was struck dumb by the idea that is the perfect plan. If Voldemort thinks that Dumbledore is dead than Dumbledore will be free to whatever he needs to do to stop him without needing constant protection. It reminded me of Star Wars (sadly, I'm sorry I've made several connections in the past to Star Wars so please forgive me, Harry Potter is a thousand and one times better) where when a jedi is killed it only makes them stronger. I always wondered why Dumbledore made so many comments in the past about death not being a bad thing at all but another great adventure and how there were things much worse than death. I know there's something important to that quote and I know we're going to find out, but I just can't decide what it could possibly be. How would one 'die' without dying? (apart from a horocrux) Did Dumbledore do this-- whatever "this" is? I think so. The thing that makes it even weirder is that in a later edition they took out all the key parts of this quote. (the quote I gave you was from the very first edition of Half Blood Prince-- the hardcover that you could pre-order and get at the midnight ceremony, but in the later paperback edition that I bought a few weeks ago the quote is changed). They took out the line that says "they cannot killy ou if you are already dead." and the line that says "no one will be surpirsed that you had died trying to kill me-- forgive me forgive me but Lord VOldemort probably expects it. Nor would the Death Eaters be surprised we had captured and killed your mother-- it is what they would do themselves afterall." Those are incredibly significant lines. WHy would they take them out? Maybe JKR thought it was too much of a clue? I mean basically its saying that Dumbledore and the ORder have a very effective way of making someone appear to have died when they are not really dead and in so doing protecting them from Voldemort and his followers. So my theory is that somehow Dumbledore did this to himself-- whatever "it" is or was at least planning to do so.

Okay that's finally it. Phewph. This took me about an hour and a half to finish. Let's hope it was worth it......

Re: Official "Deathly Hallows" Prediction Contest

1. What are the Deathly Hallows?
The horcruxes.

2. What are the remaining horcruxes? Is Harry or his scar a horcrux?
Locket, cup, and something Dumbledore didn't name specifically. Harry will worry about his scar, which apparently has a piece of Voldemort's soul in it, and this may place him in a perilous situation, but it will turn out that he does not need to kill himself to destroy Voldemort's power.

3. Will Harry die?
No.

4. Without considering Harry, who else will die?
Neville, Wormtail, and one of the Weasleys. And Bellatrix, of course-- JKR couldn't let her live.

5. Who will redeem himself?
Snape, Draco, and Wormtail.

6. Who will be the new leader of the Order?
Lupin, since his relationship with Tonks will keep him from returning to the wolfpack.

7. Is there another spy in the Death Eaters?
Nobody else was spying during the course of the 6th book, but some of the Death Eaters we knew at that time will turn out to be flaky in their devotion.

8. Who is R.A.B.?
Regulus Black

9. Will Hogwarts reopen?
Yes.

10. Will Harry return to Hogwarts? As a student?
Not as a student.

11. Will the Ministry interfere more with Hogwarts (if it reopens) now that Dumbledore is gone?
No.

12. Will there be a battle at Hogwarts?
Yes.

13. JKR says Dumbledore is properly dead, but will we see him again? How?
His portrait on the wall will not be able to guide Harry, but will tie up a few loose ends.

14. Did Dumbledore beg for his life or plead with Snape to kill him?
He was not begging for his life.

15. Why did Dumbledore trust Snape?
JKR will introduce something new into the Dumbledore-Snape backstory but it will still boil down to Dumbledore believing in the essential goodness of people.

16. Whose side is Snape really on? (V's, Order's, his own)?
His own.

17. Where did Snape take Draco at the end of HBP? Where is he hiding now?
Neither Voldemort nor the Order.

18. Will Harry visit the house where he was attacked in Godric's Hollow? What will he find there?
Yes.

19. Aside from James, Lily, Voldemort and Harry, who else was at the house in Godric's Hollow on the night of the attack?
Someone from James' crowd.

20. Will Percy remain estranged from his family, or will he make amends?
He'll make amends.

21. Did Percy act as a spy for Dumbledore with his connections in the Ministry?
No. Some people are just wrong-headed.

22. Will Wormtail repay his life-debt to Harry?
Yes.

23. How will Harry say goodbye to the Dursleys?
There will be no fond farewell.

24. What role will Aberforth play?
Aberforth knows more about Snape than Harry does.

25. What was Aberforth really doing with those goats?
Nothing relevant.

26. Will Voldemort die? How? (Veil, AK, Giant Squid...)
Eventually, by Harry's own doing.

27. Why did Voldemort offer Lily a chance to live?
He was focusing on making a horcrux of Harry and either wanted or needed her to give him up willingly.

28. What was Dumbledore's "gleam of triumph"?
Dumbledore knew that the use of Harry's blood was Voldemort's downfall.

29. What is the power of love?
The only thing that will prevent Harry from having to kill himself.

30. Will Lucius escape or be released from Azkaban?
Yes. He will leave due to Ministry ineptness.

31. Is Trevor more than a toad?
No.

32. Will there be an attack at Fleur & Bill's wedding?
No, but something else unexpected will happen.

33. Will Ginny join the trio in Harry's quest?
No.

34. Will we see Fawkes again? Will he choose Harry as his new owner?
Yes. No.

35. Will someone kill Fenrir Greyback? Who?
(no answer)

36. What is the purpose of the veil?
Irrelevant, will not be brought up. Quite frankly, JKR has an unlimited number of tricks up her sleeve and there is no reason she needs to revisit this one.

37. Will we see Sirius again? How?
No. Sirius is dead as a doornail.

38. Who is the dragon on the special edition US cover art?
Norbert!

39. What was Dumbledore's letter ("Remember my last") to Petunia referring to?
Some sort of contact between Petunia and Dumbledore that happened after Dumbledore's initial letter. (This is a prediction-- that D gave more than one message to P.)

40. What other magical creatures will play a larger role in DH? (Goblins, Centaurs, Giant Squid, etc.) Will they be on the good side or the bad side?
Harry will be glad he befriended Grawp.

41. Anything else you want to add?
Nagini is not a horcrux.
Ginny being a seventh child is important.
The "heavy locket that none of them could open" is the horcrux RAB acquired.
Mundungus swiped this horcrux.
The triangle symbol is not an evil symbol.
The final sentence of the book will be Harry acknowledging his scar rather than talking about its disappearance or some effect it has on him. Something like "He reached up to feel his scar."
Luna will survive!

Re: Official "Deathly Hallows" Prediction Contest

If there's a // before the sentence, don't count it for points please!

E.g. Part of my question 2:
Quote:
// 1. T.M. Riddle Diary[destroyed] <-- Don't count
// 2. Marvolo's Ring[destroyed] <-- Don't count
3. Hufflepuff's Cup <-- Count
4. Slytherin's Locket <-- Count
5. Something of Rowena's, going with the wand theory. <-- Count
6. Nagini <-- Count

1. What are the Deathly Hallows?
Atleast 3 of them are Horcruxes, referring to objects of the founders. Fourth being Gryffindor's Sword.

2. What are the remaining horcruxes? Is Harry or his scar a horcrux?
// 1. T.M. Riddle Diary[destroyed]
// 2. Marvolo's Ring[destroyed]
3. Hufflepuff's Cup
4. Slytherin's Locket
5. Something of Rowena's, going with the wand theory.
6. Nagini

No Harry's scar can't be a horcrux because Voldemort isn't the type of person who would constantly try to kill his own horcrux!

// The list would also be the order of their destruction IMO

3. Will Harry die?
No

4. Without considering Harry, who else will die?
Remus Lupin (Though, he might have got the reprieve IMO ), Peter Pettigrew, Lucius Malfoy, Rubeus Hagrid, Lord Voldemort, Fenrir Greyback, Bellatrix Lestrange, and Severus Snape

5. Who will redeem himself?
Peter Pettigrew
Draco Malfoy
Severus Snape (though doesn't need to IMO)

6. Who will be the new leader of the Order?
Minerva [Goddess of War / Wisdom] McGonagall [Bravest]
//Maybe Arthur (due to king Arthur), Moody or Aberforth.

7. Is there another spy in the Death Eaters?
Yes.

8. Who is R.A.B.?
Regulus Black
// Middle name Arcturus

9. Will Hogwarts reopen?
Yes

10. Will Harry return to Hogwarts? As a student?
A) Yes - Return
B) No - Not as a student

11. Will the Ministry interfere more with Hogwarts (if it reopens) now that Dumbledore is gone?
Yes.

12. Will there be a battle at Hogwarts?
Yes.

// This is my first choice for the final battle between Harry and Voldemort.

13. JKR says Dumbledore is properly dead, but will we see him again? How?
Yes, portrait.

// Either that, or a time turner or a pensieve, but portrait is my primary answer.

14. Did Dumbledore beg for his life or plead with Snape to kill him?
Plead for death.

15. Why did Dumbledore trust Snape?
Snape gave him an iron clad reason

// Maybe proving that he loved Lily Evans

16. Whose side is Snape really on? (V's, Order's, his own)?
Dumbledore's

17. Where did Snape take Draco at the end of HBP? Where is he hiding now?
Back to D.E. lair, anywhere other Death Eaters are.

18. Will Harry visit the house where he was attacked in Godric's Hollow? What will he find there?
House is probably destroyed, the area yes.

// I think he might find the missing horcrux there, if not another.

19. Aside from James, Lily, Voldemort and Harry, who else was at the house in Godric's Hollow on the night of the attack?
I'll say Pettigrew was in the vicinity, not necessarily the house.

// Perhaps Karkaroff.
// Though, not convinced anyone actually was.

20. Will Percy remain estranged from his family, or will he make amends?
Make amends.

21. Did Percy act as a spy for Dumbledore with his connections in the Ministry?
No.

//Made me laugh thinking about it though.

22. Will Wormtail repay his life-debt to Harry?
Yes.

23. How will Harry say goodbye to the Dursleys?
Will tell them how terrible they were before he leaves.

// Though, I can sort of see him thanking them for keeping him alive. Perhaps he'll save their life, or we will see what happens when Voldemort tries attacking him there.

24. What role will Aberforth play?
Either he or Dedalus Diggle is the new Order member we'll get more info on.

// But I think he'll help Harry with the missing horcrux, perhaps how to destroy them.

25. What was Aberforth really doing with those goats?
// Trying to make a potion or something - I'm not sure so leaving the "//" because I don't want this answer to count.


26. Will Voldemort die? How? (Veil, AK, Giant Squid...)
Veil would be interesting, but doesn't make much sense to me. :/
I don't see Harry killing him with AK.
I hope Harry uses Sectumsempra.
This is probably the most interesting questing for me to ponder at the moment.

27. Why did Voldemort offer Lily a chance to live?
Snape begged her to.

28. What was Dumbledore's "gleam of triumph"?
// Voldemort no longer a descendent of Salazar as the blood he used was from Harry, and he used his fathers bone. Not sure of an answer so leaving this as my unofficial answer.

29. What is the power of love?
The power to be able to kill for a loved one.

// The power to become more powerful when a loved one is at risk or perhaps the power to do justice or the power to sacrifice yourself for someone you love.

30. Will Lucius escape or be released from Azkaban?
Either way, he'll be killed by Voldemort.

// More likely the latter if I have to choose one or the other.

31. Is Trevor more than a toad?
No.

32. Will there be an attack at Fleur & Bill's wedding?
Going to say yes, because even though I don't think so, I'd still really like to read about it.

// News of one maybe, but I don't think there will be one... but I'd like there to be so going with yes anyway.


33. Will Ginny join the trio in Harry's quest?
Yes.

// Either that, or she'll be captured by Voldemort.

34. Will we see Fawkes again? Will he choose Harry as his new owner?
A) Yes - We'll see him
B) // Not Sure, I hope so.

// Though I'd personally like to see Snape with him!

35. Will someone kill Fenrir Greyback? Who?
Yes, Peter Pettigrew

//Alternative is Remus Lupin.

36. What is the purpose of the veil?
It's a lethifold, so its purpose is to digest people until it meets a patronus.

37. Will we see Sirius again? How?
No, not alive past his death anyway.

// Reviving characters whose deaths were witnessed (unless it was intentionally done as a trick by a badguy pretending to be good) is obnoxious and JKR is too creative for this.

38. Who is the dragon on the special edition US cover art?
Norbert

// Could possibly be the Hungarian Horntail, but I think Norbert is better

39. What was Dumbledore's letter ("Remember my last") to Petunia referring to?
His last letter where he explained that Harry needed to be there to protect them all, and they protect him, until Harry turns seventeen.

40. What other magical creatures will play a larger role in DH? (Goblins, Centaurs, Giant Squid, etc.) Will they be on the good side or the bad side?
Phoenix (Fawkes) - Good
Acromantula (Aragog's Family) - Good
Hippogriff's - Good
Dragons - Good if involved
Merpeople - Good if involved
Centaurs - Own / Good
Goblins - Own / Good
Vampires - Opposite of Werewolves / Good
Werewolves - Split / Majority Bad
Giants - Bad / Excluding Grawp who will be more powerful than expected
Serpents - Bad
Dementors - Bad
Inferius - Bad

// Elves - Both / Split based on who owns them
// Trolls - Good
// Giant Squid - Good if at all
// Thestrals - Good, if at all
// Unicorn - Good, if at all
// Lethifolds - Split / Whatever they digest first, more likely on the good side since all good guys are well versed with patronus

41. Anything else you want to add?
From Least to Most positive:
// There's a reason Dumbledore didn't want McGonagall to know about the horcruxes (HBP - End) and wouldnt explain how Harry survived as a baby (PS - Start)
// If there is someone who learns magic very late in life it's either Filch or Figg.
// Either Hagrid or Lupin got the reprieve.
-The DADA curse will finally be broken (assuming Hogwarts gets reopened)
-Harry will visit Azkaban
-Snape was friends with Lily
-The missing horcrux is in the possession of Bellatrix
-The third horcrux is something of Ravenclaw's
-To become a ghost you need a (one) horcrux
-Harry will have to choose whether he wants to become a ghost or not (// which he will choose not)
-Neville Longbottom becomes a Hogwarts Professor
-What you all call "the viel" is really called a Lethifold
-Snape's patronus/would-be-animagi-form is a bat
-Snape is good (X 1,000,000)
-I will be happy on July 21st, 2007 (Yay, free point! j/k)

Notes
Questions:
1. What are the Deathly Hallows?

~~The Deathly Hallows is a direct reference to the Horcruxes.
2. What are the remaining horcruxes? Is Harry or his scar a horcrux?
~~Neither Harry nor his scar are Horcruxes. The remaining Horcruxes are: 1) The REAL Slytherin locket, the one which was seen in 12 Grimmauld Place (known); 2). Hufflepuff's Cup (known); 3). That tiara in the Room of Requirement 4). Voldemort's wand And then lastly is the remaining bit of soul in Voldemort's body.
3. Will Harry die?
~~No.
4. Without considering Harry, who else will die?
~~Voldemort, Bellatrix, Peter Pettigrew, Severus Snape (unfortunately)
5. Who will redeem himself?
~~SEVERUS! And also Pettigrew.
6. Who will be the new leader of the Order?
~~Remus Lupin.
7. Is there another spy in the Death Eaters?
~~Unless Bellatrix really did one over, then Snape is the only spy in the Death Eater camp.
8. Who is R.A.B.?
~~Regulus Black (known)
9. Will Hogwarts reopen?
~~Yes, in a fashion. I don't think it will be the same with a bunch of students returning like always for classes, but rather it will be open for those who still think it is a safer place to be. Therefore, teachers will be on hand but classes will be less about passing your NEWTS and more about preparation.
10. Will Harry return to Hogwarts? As a student?
~~I think he will visit Hogwarts for many reasons. But I don't think Harry will be back for full-time regularly scheduled classes with Quidditch worries and Ginny issues. He may stay for a short period of time but will leave. I don't think Hermione and Ron will join him for everything he does.
11. Will the Ministry interfere more with Hogwarts (if it reopens) now that Dumbledore is gone?
~~I don't think so.
12. Will there be a battle at Hogwarts?
~~I think a small one is possible. An attack on Hogwarts since it'll be the stronghold is likely, especially if Dumbledore's death removed several extra protections that cannot be put back. But based on the cover art of the US edition of the book, I don't think the FINAL battle occurs at Hogwarts.
13. JKR says Dumbledore is properly dead, but will we see him again? How?
~~We'll see Dumbledore again in the Pensieve as well as his portrait.
14. Did Dumbledore beg for his life or plead with Snape to kill him?
~~Dumbledore was pleading with Snape to kill him as he ordered Snape to do it at some point earlier in time, should such a situation arise.
15. Why did Dumbledore trust Snape?
~~Dumbledore trusted Snape because after Snape ran off to Voldemort to tell him that a prophecy had been given foretelling the Dark Lord's end, Snape realized after telling Voldemort that what he did was put an innocent child in harm's way because he was trying to protect his master. He realized the error here (Snape is a man of logic). Pettigrew probably knew about Harry being on the way and volunteered the info that Harry was due in July. Snape probably got scared, fearing for Lily primarily because of a past friendship Rowling will reveal, and ran to Dumbledore to warn him. If Snape heard the prophecy and told Voldemort and returned to Dumbledore within a few hours of these events happening, it would appear to Dumbledore that Snape was truly worried given his immediacy in learning the target, especially if Snape allowed Dumbledore full access to his mind. Anyhoo, long story short, Dumbledore believes Snape is truly sorry for his error because the Lily relationship is also part of the situation, and Snape spends several months feeding accurate and helpful and true information to the Order with only Dumbledore knowing. That would explain why nobody else trusted Snape: only Dumbledore knew of Snape's double agent situation.
16. Whose side is Snape really on? (V's, Order's, his own)?
~~Snape is on Dumbledore's side. He is Dumbledore's Original Man just like Harry claims to be Dumbledore's Man. There were several parallels between Harry and Snape in Half-Blood Prince, specifically the cave sequence and the Astronomy Tower sequence because they mirrored each other. Both were just following orders.
17. Where did Snape take Draco at the end of HBP? Where is he hiding now?
~~Snape is protecting Draco because he knows that if he doesn't, Dumbledore's death is partly in vain. He will lie to Draco and tell him that because he did not go through with the Dark Lord's orders, he is therefore marked and that the best thing to do is hide. Snape will leave Narcissa and Draco in hiding in his own home, while he'll tell Voldemort that Draco punked out and ran off, Apparating to who knows where?
18. Will Harry visit the house where he was attacked in Godric's Hollow? What will he find there?
~~I think this will occur on Halloween on the anniversary and some sort of meeting between the Trio and Snape will occur. I think Hermione, as the sole person who thinks "Evil" is too harsh a word to describe Snape, will be open to explanations from him and will perhaps have the first glimmer of hope that Snape is actually on the good side as a spy still.
19. Aside from James, Lily, Voldemort and Harry, who else was at the house in Godric's Hollow on the night of the attack?

~~Someone must have collected Voldemort's wand. Maybe Pettigrew. Unless that's Rowling's one big plothole? That nobody else was there so then who got Voldemort's wand? Also, I think Dumbledore knew all those events from the night at GH because a portrait saw the whole thing go over and relayed it to Dumbledore later.
20. Will Percy remain estranged from his family, or will he make amends?
~~He'll get over himself and reunite.
21. Did Percy act as a spy for Dumbledore with his connections in the Ministry?
~~Interesting idea. But I think that one letter to Ron about Harry as a nutter was a little too personal for it to mean that he was acting as a spy in the MoM. I think he genuinely is just a big git.
22. Will Wormtail repay his life-debt to Harry?
~~Yes.
23. How will Harry say goodbye to the Dursleys?
~~Members of the Order will come to collect Harry, but not before Harry learns from Aunt Petunia that Snape and Lily knew each other. I think an attack on the Dursleys may be staged during the change-over, but if it occurs, it would only make sense for the Dursleys to be relocated because Voldemort would kill them. Harry wouldn't allow that. So wouldn't it be a gas to have the Dursleys removed to the wizarding world for their safety. It would really put things into perspective and be a nice parallel to the first six books and their rejection of magic. What would the neighbors think?
24. What role will Aberforth play?
~~He will provide Harry with Dumbledore's pensieve and also Dumbledore's own personal phials of memories. These are in Dumbledore's will and Aberforth would be Albus' executor.
25. What was Aberforth really doing with those goats?
~~Trying to create a mass production of cashmere and angora sweaters by charming the goats to produce an excess of their coat. Unfortunately, this was discovered as many Muggles saw these goats roaming fields and were mistaking them for polar bears too often or the Abominable Snowman.
26. Will Voldemort die? How? (Veil, AK, Giant Squid...)
~~Yes. Harry and Snape will work together. Thinking they have destroyed the Hocruxes, they'll go in to face Voldemort in the final battle. Somehow, Harry will triumph over Voldemort as Snape will be stuck battling others as well. Yet they don't know that they were wrong about one of the Horcruxes. Voldemort will become Vapormort once again and will jump into Snape standing nearby. Dumbledore said it's possible to do, but will have poor results because you have two minds fighting for control. For the time, Voldemort will have stornger Legilimency powers willing Snape into submission within his own body. Harry will be forced to battle with Snapemort, and without the potential for a Priori Incantatem as Voldemort is controlling Snape and therefore using his wand. Harry will hold his own but will remember Dumbledore's talk about love defeating Voldemort in the end. Harry will try to speak to Snape, knowing now that Snape was once friends with Lily, and will attempt to officially make amends with him and forgive him for all he's done and ask him to fight Voldemort off with love. Snape will force Voldemort into submission. He'll use this chance to find out what the last Horcrux is (Voldemort's wand). Harry will go destroy the wand while Voldemort continues to make attempts to take control again. With the wand destroyed, Voldemort is now trapped within Snape and will be unable to leave. Snape will be a person with two souls fighting for control. I could see a scenario in which Snape, the meantally all-powerful, is able to maintain Voldemort's submission and lead a normal life. But, come on, that's risky. And as I don't see Harry having the power to AK Snape and actually kill that way, then Snape will AK himself, and thus Voldemort will be forced to leave earth as he no longer has any bits of soul retaining him on earth.
27. Why did Voldemort offer Lily a chance to live?
~~He sadistically wanted to have some fun by seeing if she'd punk out and run for it, abandoning her son like he was abandoned, or if she'd care enough. Either way I think he planned to kill her and didn't care what she did. But didn't realize what he was offering.
28. What was Dumbledore's "gleam of triumph"?
~~Dumbledore was happy when he learned that part of Harry's blood was within Voldemort. This made Voldemort slightly more vulnerable obviously. I think it was because before Voldemort was simply devoid of love and compassion, but now that he was brought back with Harry's blood which contains Lily's protective love, he may be resistant to Harry's touch but he now has a fraction of some sort of love contained within him. I'm going to guess that the Department of Mysteries may play a role in aiding Harry with some sort of weapon of love which may help Harry to defeat Voldemort. And somehow that bit of love within his blood will play a role.
29. What is the power of love?
~~Forgiveness and understanding. The ability for someone to have compassion for another despite their faults. To care for someone so much that they would sacrifice their life in order to save the other. Love is the power which engenders loyalty, compassion, selflessness, and joy. The power will be Harry forgiving Snape and Snape overcoming Voldemort because of love.
30. Will Lucius escape or be released from Azkaban?
~~Oh I'm sure he'll be out and about eventually as Voldemort will want a full army. He'll probably be leading the attack on the Dursleyes I predict along with Bellatrix.
31. Is Trevor more than a toad?
~~No.
32. Will there be an attack at Fleur & Bill's wedding?
~~Can you say, Dementors free-loading on such a happy and joyful time? It's like a buffet!
33. Will Ginny join the trio in Harry's quest?
~~No.
34. Will we see Fawkes again? Will he choose Harry as his new owner?
~~We'll see Fawkes again but I don't think Fawkes will look at Harry as his owner and expect a bird swing in Harry's room at Privet Drive. If anything, Fawkes will support Harry when he is needed. I think we'll see him primarily after the final battle when he'll shed some tears for everyone who is hurt.
35. Will someone kill Fenrir Greyback? Who?
~~According to my tea leaves, a couple of wolves will fight. Remus Lupin will kill Fenrir Greyback.
36. What is the purpose of the veil?
~~Perhaps a way to commune with the Other Side. Perhaps that will be used to kill Voldemort rather than my more fanciful theory. 37. Will we see Sirius again? How?
~~Perhaps. Only way would be Pensieve or those mirrors.
38. Who is the dragon on the special edition US cover art?
~~I dare say that Hagrid will be highly envious that the Trio are allowed to RIDE ON A DRAGON'S BACK WITHOUT BEING CHOMPED ON! How is that possible? Well, it's an Opaleye dragon, listed in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as the least dangerous of dragons, also somewhat small compared to other dragons, and has glittery, pale-ish, opal eyes. Furthermore, I want to point out again that this dragon is ALLOWING THEM TO RIDE ON ITS BACK AND SEEMS TO BE SPECIFICALLY TAKING THEM SOMEWHERE! How does this dragon know to do this and is okay with it? Why, it seems to have reason! That's why I'm calling it -- it's Snape in his Animagus form. Don't forget that Animagus forms reflect the inner nature of the wizard: for Snape, he seems fearsome and scary on the outside, but on the inside, he's not as scary as you would expect his outside to reflect. But again, this is going with my faith that Snape is good and isn't evil.
39. What was Dumbledore's letter ("Remember my last") to Petunia referring to?
~~A warning of what could happen to Harry if she did not take him in. Probably talked about how the Potters died, who Voldemort is, what he is capable of, and why he wants Harry dead. Dumbledore probably threatened with stuff about how the wizarding world would not be pleased if a few Muggles allowed for Harry to be murdered by Voldemort because they refused to take him in.
40. What other magical creatures will play a larger role in DH? (Goblins, Centaurs, Giant Squid, etc.) Will they be on the good side or the bad side?
~~House elves will play a larger role with their magic. I swear that's Kreacher on the cover of the UK Children's edition. Also, the centaurs will be a part of the Order's side thanks to Firenze rallying them. Also, expect the Dementors to be back again. And the thestrals may prove helpful. Lots of winged creatures if you add Beaky and Fawkes.
41. Anything else you want to add?
~~Viktor Krum will return. And if Nagini is actually a Horcrux, then Snape will be the one to surprise Voldemort by killing her.

Re: Official "Deathly Hallows" Prediction Contest

Questions:
1. What are the Deathly Hallows? The horcruxes.
2. What are the remaining horcruxes? Is Harry or his scar a horcrux? I don't know what the mystery horcruxes are, but I think that Harry WAS a horcrux, but Voldemort's soul was removed during the graveyard scene at the end of GoF.
3. Will Harry die? No.
4. Without considering Harry, who else will die? I think there's a 50/50 chance one of the trio will die, and a good chance a Weasley will die. I also think it is likely that Snape will die after proving his loyalty to Dumbledore.
5. Who will redeem himself? Snape will redeem himself and show that he is working for good.
6. Who will be the new leader of the Order? Moody or McGonagall.
7. Is there another spy in the Death Eaters? I doubt it.
8. Who is R.A.B.? Regulas Black
9. Will Hogwarts reopen? Yes, but many students won't be back, because their parents are afraid that not even Hogwarts is safe.
10. Will Harry return to Hogwarts? As a student? I don't know. I'd say it's a 50/50 chance.
11. Will the Ministry interfere more with Hogwarts (if it reopens) now that Dumbledore is gone? I don't know. The last Ministry interference was due to Fudge, and now Scrimgeour is in charge I don't know if he'll do the same thing.
12. Will there be a battle at Hogwarts? Yes, possibly in the Chamber of Secrets.
13. JKR says Dumbledore is properly dead, but will we see him again? How? Aberforth Dumbledore. There will be goats!
14. Did Dumbledore beg for his life or plead with Snape to kill him? He was pleading with Snape to kill him, so Snape could fulfill the unbreakable vow. For Snape to do otherwise would have revealed him as a member of the order, and Voldemort would have him killed. By killing Dumbledore, Snape is able to remain in the Death Eaters and continue spying on them for the Order.
15. Why did Dumbledore trust Snape? Not sure, but I think Snape may have revealed that Voldemort was going after the Potters. Alas that Dumbledore was too late to save them.
16. Whose side is Snape really on? (V's, Order's, his own)? He is on the Order's side.
17. Where did Snape take Draco at the end of HBP? Where is he hiding now? No idea.
18. Will Harry visit the house where he was attacked in Godric's Hollow? What will he find there? He's definitely going to visit Godric's Hollow. Not sure what he'll find though.
19. Aside from James, Lily, Voldemort and Harry, who else was at the house in Godric's Hollow on the night of the attack?
Not sure, but maybe Worntail.
20. Will Percy remain estranged from his family, or will he make amends?He'll make amends, I think. He'll finally realise that he and his family are on the same side. But i still think he is a jerk.
21. Did Percy act as a spy for Dumbledore with his connections in the Ministry? I doubt it. The order would have known, I think.
22. Will Wormtail repay his life-debt to Harry? yes. It's too important to be ignored.
23. How will Harry say goodbye to the Dursleys? No idea.
24. What role will Aberforth play? he may provide Harry with information about Albus that Harry didn't know, and is vitally important...
25. What was Aberforth really doing with those goats? Um...?
26. Will Voldemort die? How? (Veil, AK, Giant Squid...) He won't die. Dumbledore's line about there being fates worse than death is setting that up too much. He'll probably get smooched by a dementor.
27. Why did Voldemort offer Lily a chance to live? As torture. if Lily took it, she'd have to live the rest of her life knowing that she let it happen.
28. What was Dumbledore's "gleam of triumph"? Because he realised one of Voldemort's horcruxes (Harry, who was inadverdently made a horcrux that fateful night) had been "destroyed". By that, I mean that Voldemort reclaimed part of his soul, so there was one less horcrux to destroy, weakening Voldemort's position.
29. What is the power of love? hasn't this been explained? The power of love is the ultimate goodness.
30. Will Lucius escape or be released from Azkaban? Maybe escape, now that the dementors are helping Voldemort.
31. Is Trevor more than a toad? Maybe just a toad, but I think he'll play a part in DH.
32. Will there be an attack at Fleur & Bill's wedding? it would be a rather soapie thing to do. Doesn't strike me as Jo's style...
33. Will Ginny join the trio in Harry's quest? Is there any way she wouldn't?
34. Will we see Fawkes again? Will he choose Harry as his new owner? Oh yes, Fawkes will return.
35. Will someone kill Fenrir Greyback? Who? Remus or Bill, I'd say. That is, if he is killed at all.
36. What is the purpose of the veil? Not sure....
37. Will we see Sirius again? How? Maybe as a painting, but no other way.
38. Who is the dragon on the special edition US cover art? No idea
39. What was Dumbledore's letter ("Remember my last") to Petunia referring to? It was referring to the protection that Harry has while he's at the Dursleys'. The letter explained that, and I believe that Petunia is less anti-magic than she seems (only appearing that way for the benefit of Vernon).
40. What other magical creatures will play a larger role in DH? (Goblins, Centaurs, Giant Squid, etc.) Will they be on the good side or the bad side? I believe that the House-Elves will play an important role (all that SPEW stuff has to be leading somewhere), and also Hagrid and Olympe's efforts with the giants (including Grawp) will have a payoff as well.
41. Anything else you want to add? Harry won't die, but he'll have to sacrifice something. Not sure what, but the hero always has to sacrifice something. John Conner sacrificed the good Terminator, Frodo had to sacrifice his life in Hobbiton, and Harry will sacrifice something as well.... Also, I'm going to bet that Harry's memory of the night Voldemort murdered his parents has been altered, and none too skillfully. I think this because in PoA when he remembers it, it comes out of a mist, just the same as Slughorn's memories in HBP. Same mist indicates the same cause.

Re: Official "Deathly Hallows" Prediction Contest

Questions:
1. What are the Deathly Hallows?
The "Deathly Hallows" refers to the horcruxes. These objects would have been considered special or 'Hallowed' in the wizarding world and are now dangerous because of the pieces of tainted soul that are now within them, put there through an act of murder (Deathly).

2. What are the remaining horcruxes? Is Harry or his scar a horcrux?
The only remaining horcruxes are Slytherin's locket, Hufflepuff's cup and Ravenclaw's wand. Voldemort failed to make his 6th horcrux as planned (upon Harry's death) and has not changed his mind from that path. He did not make Nagini into a horcrux, but likely does plan to do that if he can kill Harry. Harry's scar is not a horcrux.

3. Will Harry die?
Yes - but only for a little while? The story will end with Harry alive.

4. Without considering Harry, who else will die?
Charlie Weasley, Lucius Malfoy, Hagrid, Peter Pettigrew, Severus Snape, Mr. Ollivander, Bellatrix Lestrange, Voldemort, Fenrir Greyback, Arabella Figg, and assorted muggles that we don't know by name.

5. Who will redeem himself?
(1) Percy Weasley, who will return to his family and work with the Order because he will see the Ministry as breaking their own rules in going too far in prosecution of the innocent.
(2) Severus Snape, by killing a fellow Death Eater (Bellatrix) who was an inch away from killing Harry.
(3) Peter Pettigrew will redeem himself by killing Nagini when Harry is caught in a situation where he is snuck up on by the snake.

6. Who will be the new leader of the Order?
There will not really be any official leader of the Order at first. Later, Harry will end up being the 'leader-by-proxy', not intentionally taking on the role, but leading simply because others will choose to follow.

7. Is there another spy in the Death Eaters?
No - Snape is the only one.

8. Who is R.A.B.?
Regulus Black.

9. Will Hogwarts reopen?
Yes - but it will be opening a month late this year. Term will be from October 1 to July 31.

10. Will Harry return to Hogwarts? As a student?
Yes, and yes.

11. Will the Ministry interfere more with Hogwarts (if it reopens) now that Dumbledore is gone?
Be involved - yes. Interfere, not so much.

12. Will there be a battle at Hogwarts?
Yes, with Death Eaters and such (perhaps dementors and a vampire or two) but Voldemort will not be there in person.

13. JKR says Dumbledore is properly dead, but will we see him again? How?
Yes. His portrait and his Chocolate Frog card.

14. Did Dumbledore beg for his life or plead with Snape to kill him?
Neither - he was asking Snape to look into his mind to see that he wasn't afraid to die. But he was leaving the choice of whether or not to do it up to Snape. Dumbledore suspected something like this could happen, but did not plan on it with Snape beforehand. When Snape said he didn't want to do it anymore - he was talking about the DADA job.

15. Why did Dumbledore trust Snape?
Because Snape heard the entire prophecy but only told part of it to Voldemort; which to Dumbledore, was proof that Snape wasn't totally loyal to Voldemort. Dumbledore believed Snape's regret for what he had done to be genuine, but in a twisted way. If Snape originally was playing both sides and holding out information from Voldemort (which he was doing only to be sure he would have information to give if he were in a bad way with old moldy-shorts) then the poor decision Voldemort made in killing the Potters and attacking Harry as a baby could be seen as an error made on partial information - which was Snape's fault. If Snape were to be found out, he would be killed. Snape could not trust the other Death Eaters or Voldemort (if Snape, like Dumbledore, didn't actually believe him to be dead). Snape's loyalty to the side of the light is assured, simply because the alternative is deadly - Snape is a true Slytherin after all, and can usually be counted on to do what he has to do to save his own skin.

16. Whose side is Snape really on? (V's, Order's, his own)?
Snape is really on the side of the Order - in that he really wants to see Voldemort defeated. He will still be passing information to the Order by way of someone like Mundungus Fletcher and Aberforth Dumbledore without the Order knowing the exact source of the information.

17. Where did Snape take Draco at the end of HBP? Where is he hiding now?
Snape first took Draco to Spinner's End, but Draco left because he was:
(1) upset by the whole events of the evening,
(2) hacked off at Snape and
(3) worried about his mother. Draco left Snape on his own, intending to go to his mother, but found the Manor guarded by Death Eaters and took off on his own. He's been alone in hiding ever since and Harry will be the one to find him - perhaps in the Shrieking Shack.

18. Will Harry visit the house where he was attacked in Godric's Hollow? What will he find there?
Yes. He will find the scabbard that belongs with Gryffindor's sword. It, along with the sword, were either originally in the possession of the Potters or was brought there by Voldemort on October 31, 1981 with the intention of making the sword into his final Horcrux. (Fawkes retrieved it when Harry needed it in the CoS.) The sword is NOT a horcrux, as Voldemort was reduced to spirit form before he had a chance to complete his goal.

19. Aside from James, Lily, Voldemort and Harry, who else was at the house in Godric's Hollow on the night of the attack?
An as-yet-to-be-named house elf.

20. Will Percy remain estranged from his family, or will he make amends?
(Same as in question #5) Percy Weasley, who will return to his family and work with the Order because he will see the Ministry as breaking their own rules in going too far in prosecution of the innocent.

21. Did Percy act as a spy for Dumbledore with his connections in the Ministry?
No. He was just a prat.

22. Will Wormtail repay his life-debt to Harry?
Yes - same as in #5. Peter Pettigrew will redeem himself by killing Nagini when Harry is caught in a situation where he is snuck up on by the snake.

23. How will Harry say goodbye to the Dursleys?
By obliviating thier memories of him and of the magical world.

24. What role will Aberforth play?
He will be instrumental in getting information to the Order from Snape and he will be aiding Harry in getting in and out of the school through one of the secret passageways that leads between Hogwarts and the Hogs Head Inn. He will also give Harry information about Albus Dumbledore's past that will help Harry in an indirect way.

25. What was Aberforth really doing with those goats?
The goat was really Mundungus Fletcher in his animagus form. Aberforth was hexing him for whatever it was he did that hacked Aberforth off in the first place. Aberforth was caught just as he was hexing the goat - and he did not reveal Dung's illegal, unrigistered status to the Ministry, instead, taking the penalty himself in order to keep Dung as a useful operative in the first war.

26. Will Voldemort die? How? (Veil, AK, Giant Squid...)
Harry will possess him. Think - the Quirrellmort/Harry battle at the end of book 1 - only with souls instead of just physical touch. The winner is the one who can hold out longer. Harry will live simply because he loves people on both sides (both living and dead) and won't be afraid of death.

27. Why did Voldemort offer Lily a chance to live?
He wanted her on his side.

28. What was Dumbledore's "gleam of triumph"?
Dumbledore realized that in taking Harry's blood, Voldemort was simply reinforcing his own belief in the prophecy. As long as he thinks Harry is the one who is dangerous to him, Harry will BE the one who is dangerous to him. Voldemort understands blood magic, but he underestimates love - he got one thing out of the blood, but no matter what he does, he still can't get what it is that Harry has (love.) By taking Harry's blood, all he did was fullfill even more of the prophecy than he knew existed.

29. What is the power of love?
Loving someone so much that you are willing to intentionally and purposefully and selflessly lay down your life to save them; caring more for someone else than you do for yourself. Voldemort will lose because of the people that will continue to risk (and lose) their lives in order for Harry to get to him. In the case of this story, it is the love Harry has for everyone who would be killed or supressed by Voldemort if he won that drives him to defeat the 'Dark Lord' and it is the love of others for Harry that will give him the assets he needs
to do it.

30. Will Lucius escape or be released from Azkaban?
Neither. He will die in Azkaban - killed as part of an 'inside job'.

31. Is Trevor more than a toad?
No.

32. Will there be an attack at Fleur & Bill's wedding?
No.

33. Will Ginny join the trio in Harry's quest?
Not actively, but she will play a part passively.

34. Will we see Fawkes again? Will he choose Harry as his new owner?
Fawkes will return at a time when he is most needed, but he will not choose Harry as a companion.

35. Will someone kill Fenrir Greyback? Who?
Yes. Draco Malfoy will kill him.

36. What is the purpose of the veil?
It is used by the Department of Mysteries to study the afterlife. It is NOT used for executions and it's origins are a mystery even to those who study it.

37. Will we see Sirius again? How?
Yes. He will have a portrait in Grimmauld Place - only he will be in his animagus form as Padfoot and will be a source of comfort to Harry, but not a source of knowledge or information.

38. Who is the dragon on the special edition US cover art?
It's just an anonymous dragon taken from the depths of Gringott's bank. (No, it's not Norbert.)

39. What was Dumbledore's letter ("Remember my last") to Petunia referring to?
Dumbledore wrote a letter to Petunia explaining that Harry's presence allowed the Dursley's to be protected from Voldemort and his followers as well; that since they wanted to get to Harry, if he were to turn up missing, his only living family would be the first place they'd look. By explaining to her that the blood protection that keeps Harry safe, keeps them safe as long as the protection is in play is the only reason he was able to get Petunia to agree to take Harry in the first place. In OotP the howler reminded Petunia that Harry would have to stay only because his leaving end the protection and would put her, Dudley and Vernon at risk.

40. What other magical creatures will play a larger role in DH? (Goblins, Centaurs, Giant Squid, etc.) Will they be on the good side or the bad side?
The Goblins will be 'officially' neutral, but will be helping Harry unofficially. The Centaurs will fight to protect their own turf, but will not actually join the side of the light in a coordinated way en masse. The house elves will fight to protect the school, but Dobby will be an exception and will fight actively on Harry's side. Dementors are going to be a problem, but will be more of a rogue element rather than actually following Voldemort's command.

41. Anything else you want to add?
(1) Horcruxes, when used, cause the piece of soul within them to possess the person using the object.
(2) Harry's blood will be the way to destroy the horcruxes without damage to him.
(3) Each of the founder's objects have been imbued with some sort of magical powers or gifts left behind by the founders (much as the sorting hat was.) In the way the Mirror of Erised worked for Harry to get the Sorcerer's Stone - the objects will only give up their 'gifts' to those who are like the founder in spirit - (Hufflepuff valued loyalty, Ravenclaw valued intelligence, Slytherin valued cunning, Gryffindor valued bravery), but the recipient must either be unaware that they will be granted these gifts, or be seeking them for a noble purpose in order to obtain them. Voldemort wanted the gifts within the objects, but never got them - so he tainted them by making them
Horcruxes, hopefully ensuring that no one would be able to have what he couldn't get.
(4) Filch will be the person who does magic late in life - and he will do it in defense of Mrs. Norris.
(5) Harry will NOT use an unforgivable curse.
(6) Draco does not have the Dark Mark. He was bitten by Fenrir Greyback.
(7) Regulus Black switched the locket BEFORE it ever made it to the cave.
(8) The curse on the DADA job preys upon the greatest weakness of anyone who accepts the position.
(9) Fenrir Greyback's bites result in a slow progression of "werewolfishness' over time.
Epilogue:
(1) Harry will become a Healer - not an Auror.
(2) Ron will become a candy magnate.
(3) Hermione will become assistant editor of the Daily Prophet.
(4) Draco Malfoy will become the first long-term Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher.
(5) Ginny Weasley will become a professional Quidditch player.
(6) Luna Lovegood will a wizarding travel agency that takes people on safari-like trips to look for strange creatures.
(7) Neville will work for the Ministry of Magic - as an unspeakable.
(8) Grimmauld Place will be turned into an orphanage for wizarding children and it will be ran by Mr. and Mrs. Weasley.
(9) Percy eventually becomes Minister of Magic.

Re: Official "Deathly Hallows" Prediction Contest

1. What are the Deathly Hallows?
Horcruxes found in Scotland (I think Hallows is an old Scottish word)

2. What are the remaining horcruxes? Is Harry or his scar a horcrux?
I think that neither Harry nor his scar are a Horcrux. I think that the other Horcruxes possibly Nagini, as Dumbledore stated, and the fact that Harry saw things from the Snake's point of view

3. Will Harry die?
Yes

4. Without considering Harry, who else will die?
Voldemort, Ron, Percy, Luna, Wormtail

5. Who will redeem himself?
Pettigrew and Draco

6. Who will be the new leader of the Order?
Remus perhaps?

7. Is there another spy in the Death Eaters?
Possibly, but I can't really see it happening

8. Who is R.A.B.?
Regulus A. Black

9. Will Hogwarts reopen?
Yes

10. Will Harry return to Hogwarts? As a student?
Not as a student, no, but he'll talk to Dumbledore, and perhaps other members of staff may help him

11. Will the Ministry interfere more with Hogwarts (if it reopens) now that Dumbledore is gone?
They'll try, but McGonnagal is a stubborn woman

12. Will there be a battle at Hogwarts?
Almost definitely

13. JKR says Dumbledore is properly dead, but will we see him again? How?
In his portrait in the Headteacher's office in Hogwarts- but he needs another one somewhere, most headteachers have had 2 portraits in different places

14. Did Dumbledore beg for his life or plead with Snape to kill him?
He pleaded with Snape to kill him on an agreement they had with each other beforehand

15. Why did Dumbledore trust Snape?
Because we don't know every single thing about Snape, I think that there is some other reason we don't know about as to why Dumbledore trusted him.

16. Whose side is Snape really on? (V's, Order's, his own)?
His own primarily, but I think he veers more towards the Order's side that Voldemort's

17. Where did Snape take Draco at the end of HBP? Where is he hiding now?
Spinner's End, and Narcissa is there too

18. Will Harry visit the house where he was attacked in Godric's Hollow? What will he find there?
He will try, but I think that the actual house will no longer be there. I think that he will find some sort of memorial because even though they were in hiding they would have still been known in the village before, because I think that James was from Godric's Hollow- he inherited the house that they were attacked in

19. Aside from James, Lily, Voldemort and Harry, who else was at the house in Godric's Hollow on the night of the attack?
Peter Pettigrew...

20. Will Percy remain estranged from his family, or will he make amends?
I think that he will make amends after Ron dies in or near the final battle

21. Did Percy act as a spy for Dumbledore with his connections in the Ministry?
No, I think he was just being an idiot

22. Will Wormtail repay his life-debt to Harry?
Yes, by sacrificing himself in order for Harry to live, even if it is just to lead him into the final battle

23. How will Harry say goodbye to the Dursleys?
He will have a talk with them to tell them what is happening and what he has to do...they won't understand it all, but it'll help them

24. What role will Aberforth play?
He's got the Slytherin locket and Harry will need to prove himself in order to take it, because Aberforth bought the locket on the suspicion that it would be important, and got the impression that it would be better in his possession than Dung's

25. What was Aberforth really doing with those goats?
I don't think it's important, and I don't think I want to know either

26. Will Voldemort die? How? (Veil, AK, Giant Squid...)
Harry will trip him up and lock him in the oven in the gingerbread house...but seriously, I think that he will be killed by love...and Ginny and Hermione will be there

27. Why did Voldemort offer Lily a chance to live?
Because he was desperate to get Harry, and thought that there was more of a chance of getting him if Lily lived. I think that Voldemort thought that attacking and killing Lily would have some sort of bad luck on him, I just don't think he knew what

28. What was Dumbledore's "gleam of triumph"?
It was triumph that another piece of the jigsaw clicked into place, from what Voldemort had said and Harry told Dumbledore, Dumbledore had the suspicions of the Horcruxes and realised that he must have had many

29. What is the power of love?
A song by Jennifer Rush...or the fact that true love, and not just infatuation, is a form of protection

30. Will Lucius escape or be released from Azkaban?
He'll stay there until Voldemort is gone, and when he comes out Draco and Narcissa will have gone straight

31. Is Trevor more than a toad?
No, he is just a toad

32. Will there be an attack at Fleur & Bill's wedding?
Possibly...all of the broken hearted people wanting Fleur to not marry Bill. Or someone after Harry...although it would be a bit silly to announce the wedding in the paper...

33. Will Ginny join the trio in Harry's quest?
At some point, yes. Harry loves her so he will need her to help him

34. Will we see Fawkes again? Will he choose Harry as his new owner?
I'm not sure about new owner, but he will help Harry

35. Will someone kill Fenrir Greyback? Who?
Fleur because he ruined Bill's face

36. What is the purpose of the veil?
A direct link to where souls live after the body dies, unless they are ghosts

37. Will we see Sirius again? How?
I don't think that we will

38. Who is the dragon on the special edition US cover art?
Baby Norbert

39. What was Dumbledore's letter ("Remember my last") to Petunia referring to?
The last letter he sent to her, one stating that whatever happened that summer, Harry would need to stay there

40. What other magical creatures will play a larger role in DH? (Goblins, Centaurs, Giant Squid, etc.) Will they be on the good side or the bad side?
Centaurs will be on the good side, Goblins will stay out of it, because they are anti wizard because of Ludo Bagman, and there was the Goblins that were killed during the first war

41. Anything else you want to add?
Hagrid and Fang will move into the cave with Grawp, and they will help Harry to find one of the Horcruxes

Re: Official "Deathly Hallows" Prediction Contest

1. What are the Deathly Hallows?
A place Harry must find/go to for crucial information on how to defeat Voldemort; he won't get there until nearly the end of the book and possibly the final showdown will occur there.

2. What are the remaining horcruxes? Is Harry or his scar a horcrux?
The remaining horcruxes are the locket, the cup, and Ravenclaw’s wand (Ollivander’s disappearance is tied to the latter). The final horcrux has not been made. Harry and his scar are not horcruxes, but at some point he will suspect he is (probably when he finds out Nagini isn't) and concoct some disastrous scheme to rid himself of Voldie's soul shard before Ron, Hermione, and/or Ginny stops him.

3. Will Harry die?
No.

4. Without considering Harry, who else will die?
Voldemort, Percy, Bellatrix, Fenrir, Lucius, Nagini, Lupin, and Wormtail are the only ones I’m comfortable predicting by name, but I do think there will be losses closer to home, possibly one of the trio.

5. Who will redeem himself?
Wormtail, Draco, Percy.

6. Who will be the new leader of the Order?
There won’t be a single leader. They’ll have more of a committee type of thing going on.

7. Is there another spy in the Death Eaters?
No.

8. Who is R.A.B.?
Regulus Black, and he is alive.

9. Will Hogwarts reopen?
Yes.

10. Will Harry return to Hogwarts? As a student?
Yes. Yes, at least ostensibly as a cover while he hunts for horcruxes, so Voldie won’t know what he’s up to.

11. Will the Ministry interfere more with Hogwarts (if it reopens) now that Dumbledore is gone?
Yes, and Umbridge will be involved.

12. Will there be a battle at Hogwarts?
Yes.

13. JKR says Dumbledore is properly dead, but will we see him again? How?
Yes, through his portrait and other characters’ memories.

14. Did Dumbledore beg for his life or plead with Snape to kill him?
Neither. He was pleading with Snape not to be a traitor, pleading not to be wrong about him.

15. Why did Dumbledore trust Snape?
I’m going with the Madam Pince being Eileen Prince theory, and kudos to whoever came up with it first. DD hid her for Snape, but of course with DD out of the way and no one else knowing that, she’s still safe even though Snape has now betrayed the Order.

16. Whose side is Snape really on? (V's, Order's, his own)?
His own.

17. Where did Snape take Draco at the end of HBP? Where is he hiding now?
No place special – they were just escaping Hogwarts. Draco isn’t hiding. He’s back with the Death Eaters, punished but not killed.

18. Will Harry visit the house where he was attacked in Godric's Hollow? What will he find there?
Yes. He will find information about his parents and their activities for the Order that will ultimately help him find a horcrux or horcruxes.

19. Aside from James, Lily, Voldemort and Harry, who else was at the house in Godric's Hollow on the night of the attack?
Wormtail.

20. Will Percy remain estranged from his family, or will he make amends?
He will remain estranged until it's too late, but will die protecting some member(s) of his family, probably Fred and George.

21. Did Percy act as a spy for Dumbledore with his connections in the Ministry?
No.

22. Will Wormtail repay his life-debt to Harry?
Yes.

23. How will Harry say goodbye to the Dursleys?
With the usual ugliness between him and Vernon and Dudley, but with some surprising help from Petunia.

24. What role will Aberforth play?
He’ll give Harry information about Dumbledore that will prove helpful in Voldie’s defeat. But he doesn’t have the locket – Kreacher has it.

25. What was Aberforth really doing with those goats?
We’ll never find out.

26. Will Voldemort die? How? (Veil, AK, Giant Squid...)
Yes. From love.

27. Why did Voldemort offer Lily a chance to live?
He wanted to use her for something, possibly as a hostage to get to somebody in particular.

28. What was Dumbledore's "gleam of triumph"?
He understood or suspected that the love that was transferred into Voldie via Harry’s blood will be the weakness that will lead to his downfall, a la Smaug’s missing scale.

29. What is the power of love?
A Huey Lewis song.

30. Will Lucius escape or be released from Azkaban?
He’ll escape.

31. Is Trevor more than a toad?
No.

32. Will there be an attack at Fleur & Bill's wedding?
Yes.

33. Will Ginny join the trio in Harry's quest?
She won’t travel with them physically, but she will be involved.

34. Will we see Fawkes again? Will he choose Harry as his new owner?
Yes, Fawkes will return at a crucial point to offer aid. No.

35. Will someone kill Fenrir Greyback? Who?
Yes. Ginny.

36. What is the purpose of the veil?
It’s an execution device.

37. Will we see Sirius again? How?
No.

38. Who is the dragon on the special edition US cover art?
Norbert.

39. What was Dumbledore's letter ("Remember my last") to Petunia referring to?
Just as he said, his last communication to her in which he told her Harry would likely die without her protection. There was, however, more to that letter than he told Harry.

40. What other magical creatures will play a larger role in DH? (Goblins, Centaurs, Giant Squid, etc.) Will they be on the good side or the bad side?
Dementors (bad); House elves (good); at least one giant (good)

41. Anything else you want to add?
- The room in the Department of Mysteries that’s dedicated to studying love will come into play in an important way.
- Neville will kill Bellatrix; he will go on to teach at Hogwarts, but it’ll be DADA, not herbology, and with Voldie dead the 1 year curse will be broken.
- Ron will kill Nagini.

Re: Official "Deathly Hallows" Prediction Contest

1. What are the Deathly Hallows? Something that happens on Halloween and/or those who are waiting for Voldemort when he mortally dies.
2. What are the remaining horcruxes? Is Harry or his scar a horcrux? The two Mirrors that Sirius Black gave one of to Harry. I'm very convinced that they were Horcruxes, possibly Ravenclaw's, and that when Sirius went through the Veil (presumably along with one of them), the Horcrux was destroyed. I will venture a guess that Harry's scar may turn out to be a Horcrux, but not Harry himself, and if so there will be something significant about how & why the Horcrux was confined to the scar.
3. Will Harry die? Pass, I don't know.
4. Without considering Harry, who else will die? Bellatrix LeStrange, Fenrir Greyback, Luna Lovegood, Nymphadora Tonks, Mundungus Fletcher, Hagrid, Peter Pettigrew
5. Who will redeem himself? Draco Malfoy
6. Who will be the new leader of the Order? McGonagall
7. Is there another spy in the Death Eaters? Yes, possibly Draco or Narcissa may offer or attempt to spy against Voldemort
8. Who is R.A.B.? Regulus Black
9. Will Hogwarts reopen? Yes
10. Will Harry return to Hogwarts? As a student? Yes, and yes.
11. Will the Ministry interfere more with Hogwarts (if it reopens) now that Dumbledore is gone? Yes.
12. Will there be a battle at Hogwarts? Yes.
13. JKR says Dumbledore is properly dead, but will we see him again? How? Yes, as a Painting, and in a Pensieve
14. Did Dumbledore beg for his life or plead with Snape to kill him? He pleaded with Snape to kill him.
15. Why did Dumbledore trust Snape? Because Dumbledore is a powerful Legilimens and a good judge of character, and he could see that Snape's remorse was genuine.
16. Whose side is Snape really on? (V's, Order's, his own)? Snape is on the Order's side - or, more specifically, on Harry's side.
17. Where did Snape take Draco at the end of HBP? Where is he hiding now? Snape would have taken Draco (and maybe Narcissa as well) to a safe haven that we readers don't know of yet, and would have either gone back to face Voldemort and/or hidden himself separately from them for their safety and/or to help Harry.
18. Will Harry visit the house where he was attacked in Godric's Hollow? What will he find there? Yes, and he will find one of his mother's wands (Ollivander hinted in Philospher's Stone at Lily having bought more than one wand)
19. Aside from James, Lily, Voldemort and Harry, who else was at the house in Godric's Hollow on the night of the attack? Snape.
20. Will Percy remain estranged from his family, or will he make amends? He will make amends.
21. Did Percy act as a spy for Dumbledore with his connections in the Ministry? No.
22. Will Wormtail repay his life-debt to Harry? Yes.
23. How will Harry say goodbye to the Dursleys? In a way that Snape would be secretly proud of.
24. What role will Aberforth play? He will give important information about Dumbledore's past.
25. What was Aberforth really doing with those goats? Trying to find a way to make more (or better) bezoars
26. Will Voldemort die? How? (Veil, AK, Giant Squid...) Dragon Chow!
27. Why did Voldemort offer Lily a chance to live? To manipulate Snape and/or sadistically toy with his feelings, I doubt whether Voldemort would have intended on keeping his word.
28. What was Dumbledore's "gleam of triumph"? Voldemort made himself in some way more vulnerable to Harry by using his blood to remake his body.
29. What is the power of love? To overcome and out-endure hate
30. Will Lucius escape or be released from Azkaban? Azkaban will be attacked, and he will escape.
31. Is Trevor more than a toad? Yes.
32. Will there be an attack at Fleur & Bill's wedding? Yes.
33. Will Ginny join the trio in Harry's quest? No.
34. Will we see Fawkes again? Will he choose Harry as his new owner? Yes, and no. I'll venture that Fawkes will either go to Snape or Ginny, and that Harry's new pet will be Nagini.
35. Will someone kill Fenrir Greyback? Who? Yes, Lupin.
36. What is the purpose of the veil? As a means by which the living could observe & experiment with the plane of the dead.
37. Will we see Sirius again? How? Yes, as a dream image, Pensieve memory or a Shade.
38. Who is the dragon on the special edition US cover art? Norbert, or Snape in Transfigured or Animagus form.
39. What was Dumbledore's letter ("Remember my last") to Petunia referring to? A letter with specific, magically enforceable orders for her he left with Harry on the doorstep
40. What other magical creatures will play a larger role in DH? (Goblins, Centaurs, Giant Squid, etc.) Will they be on the good side or the bad side? Giants, Werewolves and Dementors will be involved, fighting for Voldemort though the Giants may be swayed against Voldemort at the last minute. The Goblins will fight against Voldemort, but may threaten a post-war uprising unless they are granted equal rights. The centaurs and Merpeople will also oppose Voldemort.
41. Anything else you want to add? We will find out a lot more about Dumbledore's family and past, as well as what he was screaming about in the cave. Nagini will be released from Voldemort's control, and turn against him. We will see Snape's Patronus and Boggart. We will learn Snape has son, who may be Krum. Voldemort will become a Ghost. Snape may get caught and put in Azkaban, but later escape. Slughorn and possibly Umbridge will also go behind bars. Mundungus Fletcher will be exposed as a traitor. Stan Shunpike will eventually be released. Ron or Neville will go on to teach at Hogwarts. We will learn another use for Dragon's Blood.

13. JKR says Dumbledore is properly dead, but will we see him again? How?
He is dead, but we will see him in the portrait in the headmaster’s office, and in the pensieve. He will have more wisdom and knowledge to impart to Harry.

14. Did Dumbledore beg for his life or plead with Snape to kill him?
He pleaded with Snape to kill him, so that Malfoy would not have to do it and he could withhold his innocence.

15. Why did Dumbledore trust Snape?
Because of his actions against Voldemort.

16. Whose side is Snape really on? (V's, Order's, his own)?
I think he is good, but needs to work on his own. There might be a Death Eater spy in the Order and that is why he cannot even let the Order know that he is still working against Voldemort.

Hoarding or smuggling lots of bezoars.

Yes, in a duel with Harry.

27. Why did Voldemort offer Lily a chance to live?
He thought she was pretty and that maybe if her husband was gone, she’d consider him.

28. What was Dumbledore's "gleam of triumph"?
Knowing that love, and the sacrifice Harry’s mother made for love, gave Harry a magical protection and power that Voldemort could never know, nor understand.

29. What is the power of love?
The selfless sacrifice you make for a loved one, by not fearing death, and by doing what is hard, just because it is right.

Yes! Lupin

36. What is the purpose of the veil?
To study death and where people go when they die and what happens to them.

38. Who is the dragon on the special edition US cover art?
Norbert!! Or an Antipodalean Opaleye.

39. What was Dumbledore's letter ("Remember my last") to Petunia referring to?
For her to remember the last letter of his correspondence, when he told her that as long as she allowed Harry to stay in her home, she strengthened the bond of his mother’s love and he was safe.

40. What other magical creatures will play a larger role in DH?
Goblins, Grawp and possibly house elves will assist the side of good. Giants and Dementors will join the bad forces, and centaurs will be reluctant but I think they will join the force of good out of loyalty to Dumbledore.

41. Anything else you want to add?
Crookshanks is Regulus!
We will discover that Snape was in love with Lily Evans,
And Snape will finally repay the debt he feels he owes James by saving Harry.

Re: Official "Deathly Hallows" Prediction Contest

Yes. The prophecy says so.
"Neither can live while the other survives."


4. Without considering Harry, who else will die?
Snape, Wormtail, Voldemort, Draco, Hagrid and Charlie Weasley

5. Who will redeem himself?
No one... except maybe Snape. But then he's not really redeeming himself.

16. Whose side is Snape really on? (V's, Order's, his own)?
Order.

17. Where did Snape take Draco at the end of HBP? Where is he hiding now?
I'd imagine Snape would try to take him back to Voldemort, but Draco wouldnt want to and would flee.

18. Will Harry visit the house where he was attacked in Godric's Hollow? What will he find there?
Yes. He won't find much there but it will be significant as we will meet people there.

26. Will Voldemort die? How? (Veil, AK, Giant Squid...)
AK. Or a mixture of the power of love/the magic of the prophecy.

27. Why did Voldemort offer Lily a chance to live?
Because he saw power in her and wanted her on his side. Plus she knew something which is vital and thus wanted to gain that knowledge. Lily was a good occulemens and so could keep Voldemort out for a bit. That's why Voldemort wants Ollivander, because he also knows the knowledge.

28. What was Dumbledore's "gleam of triumph"?
He knew how close they were to finally defeating Voldemort.

29. What is the power of love?
Causes wandless magic. Voldemort has the power of evil/bad...things and so can prefrom wandless magic as well but a more dark type.

30. Will Lucius escape or be released from Azkaban?
Neither. He's dying in azkaban.

31. Is Trevor more than a toad?
No. He's just a toad.

32. Will there be an attack at Fleur & Bill's wedding?
No.

33. Will Ginny join the trio in Harry's quest?

Not as an owner, but rather he'll tag along at certain points/a certain point.

To the other letters he sent her regarding Harry's future. Before Harry came to live with her.


40. What other magical creatures will play a larger role in DH? (Goblins, Centaurs, Giant Squid, etc.) Will they be on the good side or the bad side?
Giants will be about. Centaurs most definatley. Oh and house elves.


41. Anything else you want to add?
Lots!

-Harry will time travel back in time to the night of Voldemorts attack to get a specific peice of information to which to kill Voldemort. He will leave his invisibilty cloak with James who will pass it on to Dumbledore. James' invisibilty cloak will become Moody's spare cloak.

-Harry and Voldemort can do different types of wandless magic. Harry's is feuld by his ability to love and Voldemort's power to hate/evil power. Lesser wandless magic can be practiced but it never reaches the scale of what Harry and Voldemort can do.

-Luna is so a decendent of Ravenclaws

There was something else but I can't remember...I'll add it if I remember.
