That sounds great. Would like that. But there hasn't been any hint towards it and that might not be the priority on peoples minds now Voldemort is back. But then again they might encourage him to do something relaxing or enjoyable to take his mind off it...

Someone mentioned in an earlier post that he might leave for a wedding. Maybe instead of one of the Weasleys, its Hagrid and Maxine.

We know that JK tells us clues that she doesn't think that we could possibly guess the outcome. Perhaps we should consider that the Dursley's actually take a real vacation and take Harry with them. This would fall in line with what Jk said about this being his shortest stay and leaving for a happier reason. Harry would be pleased to go on a actually vacation as I don't think he's ever mentioned being on vacation. I am sure the Dursley's will try to leave him with Ms. Figg but maybe she happened to be away on Order business so she couldn't take him. Just my opinion thought......what do you think.

Mmm. Doubtful, besides, Harry needs to not only be with the Dursleys but in their house, thats the only way he's safe from ol' Voldy. Its like in Buffy and Angel, a vampire can not enter a mortals home unless invited. Vampire=Voldimort, home=Privit Drive.

JKR has said it will be for quite a pleasant reason that Harry leaves Privet Drive. I think it might be Apparation lessons- we know they can't Apparate/Disapparate in Hogwarts so they would have to do it in the Summer. We also know that he will leave quite soon so that is where chapter 6, Draco's Detour comes in. Maybe he gets lost during his lessons and up in Grimmauld Place (presuming it's still the HQ of the Order- which is unlikely seeing as Sirius is dead and Bellatrix will probably, unfortunately, inherite [spelling?] the house), the Grangers' house or somewhere else!

Or perhaps he will visit Hermione's house and then we will finally find out where it is, maybe he will visit the Weasleys again, go back to Grimmauld Place (or wherever they are now- see above!)

Maybe everyone will decide to throw Harry a birthday party at the Burrow or at Grimmauld Place (although that place would not hold happy memories for Harry) for his birthday. He's never left the Dursley's before his birthday before.

And I'm sure everyone will be wanting to cheer Harry up and make him feel wanted.

HEY I JUST THOUGHT OF SOMETHING ok so first i think Harry will leave for a celebration (at the weasleys or somewhere) thinking it is his owls which will arrive on the 29th or 30th and then he will get an owl from the Weasleys telling him they are having a party (dd just told us about your results! we were thrilled we got the same ...or whatever) but the party will really be for his BIRTHDAY... the best birthday ever!
Anyway i have a new idea as to how Harry's mirror can be useful.... what if Grimmauld Place is inherited by the Malfoy's could Harry say their name into the mirror and look at what is going on at Grimmauld Place, who would destroy a perfectly good mirror just sitting there? Would Harry be able to hide behind the edged of the mirror like Phineaus or would the Malfoys see him? I know that wasnt supposed to go on this thread but OH WELL SORRY

Hmmm... Good thread topic! Well, the only reason he needs to go there in the first place is for protection. I think (and hope) he's getting out of Privet Drive quickly this year is so he can go to Ron's house (with Hermione) and get to stay there and have some fun to get him to kind of lay back from Sirius' death before term starts. I think they'll go to the Diagon Alley and enjoy themselves. That'd be fun.

Also, maybe it's not only Harry who has to leave Privet Drive quickly, but all of the Dursley's. Something tells me that there'll be an attack on them - no matter how much I hope it doesn't happen. So, maybe, they all have to leave because they're house'll be destroyed or some other tragidy.

She did not say a good or happy reason. She said more pleasant. Something horrible can be more pleasant than a trial where he could get kicked out of school.
I've thought of this too BUT the trial scared him to bits and threatened to expel him from Hogwarts, and probably would have without DD intervention. Personally, I can't think of something that's horrible but would at the same time be more pleasant than that, can you

Ok, I think that Apparation lessons is the most logical reason but that would need to come after his birthday yes? Do you need to be a certain age or year? So I think he will leave before his birthday as well. Maybe he leaves for the reason of the lessons but goes to stay at the Burrow as Arthur is able to take him wherever he needs to be and he can spend the rest of his time enjoying the company of his two best friends, seeing what fred and george are up to ... If he does go to the Burrow I'm Sure Molly will make a big special meal for them if they all passed, which I'm sure they have - Hermione top class I bet!

I thought you had to be 17 to learn to apparate and Harry will be celebrating his 16th birthday at the beginning of HBP.

I really like that theory. Harry will be very depressed because of Sirius... and they can cheer him up. That´s original because he has never celebrate his birthday and he really needs his friends now, after hearing about the prophecy and everything else.
Poor Harry.

I agree that where a wizard is supposed to learn how to apparate has always been a hole in the story that has bothered me. I also think dandesav's interpretation of Detour makes so much sense, that I can't believe I didn't see it before. For the record, the OED (Oxford English Dictionary) defines Detour only as a deviation from a direct road -- 10 points to dandesav! However, there is a problem Harry learning apparation this summer. As many have pointed out, Harry will be sixteen, not seventeen. In addition, considering the Ministry previous reaction of Harry's use of magic, it just doesn't make sense that there was a loop-hole for apparition. I wonder if maybe Madam Hooch teaches apparition. After all, it never made sense that they needed a special teacher to teach first years how to ride a broom. It seems that riding a broom is the wizard equivalent of riding a bike. I imagine that every teacher at Hogwarts can ride a broom. Therefore, I always thought that Madam Hooch's speciality was magical modes of transportation: portkeys, apparition, and brooms. In OoP, Lupin to his inability to use a portkey is because of Ministry control over a portkey. He seemed to talk about the Portus charm as a charm most wizards could do. Secondly, Sirius said that he ran away from his home and stayed at the Potter's all summer when he was sixteen. Ostensibly, Harry will have to learn how to apparate this year, it doesn't seem so likely that Harry will learn it outside of school. Lastly, since we know that HBP will be about the length of Oop, and if we exclude the chapters of OoP that are because of the Hearing, then chapter Six will been around the time they board the train to Hogwarts (or possibly after they have arrived at Hogwarts)

ok i think that the reason that harry would leave is that petunia will reveal some information she has been keeping secret from harry and herself too...she will reveal something about his mother...if you remember in ootp when she recieved the howler she let off the idea that she may know more than anyone thought about the wizarding world. i think she may send harry off to talk to someone that may have been close to lily...like maybe one of thier aunts or cousins that had a touch of magic in thier blood too....or even just a friend from hogwarts lily may have confided in before going into hiding...either way i think we will learn more about lily in this book.

I'm trying to think out of the box here, but the best I can come up with is what has already been said--some sort of party to cheer Harry up. I bet the Weasleys come to pick him up--maybe Ginny and Ron this year?

J.K. Rowling said that the sixth book would be the shortest stay at Privet Drive. The birthday idea makes a good deal of sense. However, if we count Harry "stay" at Privet Drive in the first book to be the only the summer, it doesn't work. Just something to keep in mind.

I think he will leave simply be because he needs to be close to the Order- I have a feeling they will be including him more now that Dumbly has gotten over his whole protection phase. Harry is at the point where he can help the Order more by knowing what is going on, than by being in the dark.

Check out my editorial! It has some stuff included in there about how Harry has to leave the Dursley's to continue his Occlumency lessons formally. It is in the Mugglenet editorial archives and is titled, Occlumency Still has a Part to Play by Cheri Mathieu
