Harry leaving the Dursley's will probably come up in Chapter 2, "Spinners End". So when she said that she'd been thinking of the first chapter for 13 years, it probably has to do more with what happen the night of the murder or something related to another past event . We'll probably see the reason for Harry leaving the Dursley's though in Chapter 2. So it is still very possible that he'll be leaving early to finally get a birthday party. I think the book will start out like Goblet of Fire did, with the first chapter about something that happened a long time ago and the next chapter going back to Harry and what he's been up to at the Dursley's house.
Oh yeah, I remember a while back I said in one of the discussions that I thought the first chapter would be some kind of flash back in which the quote we got from behind the door in JK's website would be included. There are a lot of things that JKR has deliberatley not explained yet and I think we will be enlightened by the first chapter. For instance we don't yet know much about Dumbledore defeating Grindewald, there is probably more about James and Lily's death to be revealed and there might be a hint of a clue that Harry might be able to use to defeat Voldemort. I had forgotton about that idea but I am sure that there's a good chance that it's right (not necessarily the content but the idea that we will get a glimpse into the past...)

I didn't read all the posts - got off the subject a bit as the discussion went on, so I jumped to the last few pages. Anywhooo........
I think Harry will go to the Weasley's after he gets his OWL's to celebrate - with the Dursley's blessing!!! The action will pick up from there!

I would love it to be Harry's first birthday party, it would be so poignant. The time when most of the wizzarding world is in chaos and Harry is grieving is the first time he gets to really celebrate something of his own.

Harry will leave for a pleasanter reason that before, so my theory is that he will leave to attend Hagrid and Madame Maxime's wedding. This is quite possible because it is a happy occasion and Harry would certainly want to go to see Hagrid.

I'm sure JK said that Harry will have his shortest visit yet... I really can't see Harry doing anything wrong while his is there, cause I say he will seclued himself from everyone cause of the death of Sirius, and a can't seen anyone DE or others trying to hurt himself, so I think he will have a good time and maybe got the the Weasley's early, or with Lupin and the Order...

At the end of OotP Remus, Moody and Arthur make Harry promise to owl them every three days to let them know he's alright. Otherwise they'll come and get him right away. Could that be part of the reason why Harry leaves so soon in HBP?

I think that Harry will leave Privet Drive for one reason: quidditch.
I have got one explanation:
In Goblet of Fire We have seen World Championships in Quidditch, so maybe is time to see European Championships!! (and Poland beats England, yeah )

I have also think about second explanation, but it's not my idea, i read it in one of the great fanfic (on polish site), so i dont know whether i can write this 'cause is not my idea.

I like this!

P.S you can write any idea but it is nice to say where you heard it from or to acknowledge that it is not your own...

They didn't say they would come and get him they just said that they would send someone over to check on him. Besides JKR said Harry leaves the Dursleys early because of a "much nicer" reason. I think it will be his first ever birtday party.

I'm sure this is already mentioned somewhere in this thread, but apparently not on this page: Perhaps Petunia gives up her cover, and reveals there is someone somewhere who she knows (her ex-wizard-boyfriend?), and who would have quite interesting stories to tell about Harry's family. Subsequently, Harry leaves Privet Drive early to visit this person.

I will presume that it will be a place that we havnt been to yet.That leaves out the burrow, diagon alley, and grimmauld place.

So, when i have a permission i will write about IT:
I WANT ONLY SAY IT'S NOT MY IDEA, AND HOPEFULLY WISHES THAT, THE AUTHOR WILL NOT BE ANGRY FOR ME TO WIRTE HER HERE:

The idea is that Oliver Wood have made a new tournament of quidditch in hogwarts, where not only plays the hogwarts student's but also ex-hogwarts students, and quidditch professional teams.

The idea is taken from this site: http://www.6tompottera.prv.pl/ (is in polish)

Well, i like this idea very much, so why not?

It will be Harry shortest visit ever to Privet Drive, and he will left them "for very much pleasantier reason" - and I think playing quidditch is one of them :]

I have not read all the threads here, so I am just jumping in, so here we go:
I like to think that Harry will spend the second half of the summer with Lupin. I suspect that "Spinners End" is where Remus lives. THis would provide the opportunity for Harry to learn so much about his mom and dad from the only person left who knew and loved them. It would also put Harry with someone he loves and cares about to work on his grief regarding Sirius.

Spinner's End is the new headquarters for the Order of the Phoenix. I believe JKR herself said that...and so I believe it'll be something to do with the Order.

JKR said that Harry will have his shortest stay yet at Privet Drive and he will leave for a 'much pleasanter reason' than he did in book 5.
So, he definitely won't be staying at the Dursley's all summer, and he definitely won't leave because of an attack on the Granger's.
Maybe he will leave to get Occlumency lessons from DD or Lupin. Or Maybe he will leave to go visit Ron at the Burrow. Those would definitely be much pleasanter reasons.

There are indeed quite a lot of reasons more pleasant than being attacked by Dementors and facing trial by the MoM! Having teeth pulled for example...

Seriously, I can't imagine that Occlumency lessons would be a reason for Harry to leave. My money's on one of a 16th birthday party for Harry, a party for OWL results, or a Weasley Wedding (Bill and Fleur?).

Maybe it is for the swearing in of a new Minister of Magic, whomever it is wants Harry to be there.
