However, I do know that the late Dumbledore once sagaciously said: “…I will only truly have left this school when none here are loyal to me” (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets).Taking these wise words to heart, it is evident that even when the last book has been published, read, and placed on the bookshelf, the Harry Potter series will never cease in its glory until not one more person left in this universe is loyal to it—an astounding feat that I doubt shall ever occur.
Sentimentalities over, without further ado I shall present this weeks Harry Potter topic in one word, theories. Basically, please reply with your predictions of any events that may happen in the book to come, the most anticipated of course being who will die, namely Voldemort or Harry, because according to Trelawney’s prophesy, “neither can live while the other survives.” Additionally, J.K. Rowling has hinted that there will be two other major deaths. I dread, but surely not, that these may end up being Ron and Hermione.
Right now you are thinking skeptically to yourself that this could never happen, but I personally would not put it past Rowling to create a dark end. After all, she is said to have considered killing off Harry, on the grounds that if she didn’t, people would steal her character. So I wouldn’t put it past her, but my real theory is that this threat on the horizon is just a cover-up. See, J. K. Rowling doesn’t want her fans to commence reading with the mindset: Here is the big finish where Harry will struggle his way nobly through all of the Horcrux’s, after much dramatic action kill Voldemort, and live happily ever after. Also, her reasoning about character stealing isn’t very well founded, as people would steal her character regardless. If I were her, I would want people to open Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows magic-filled pages with an air of excited foreboding, the victor in posterity still shrouded.
Of course, you might argue that I hide behind this theory because I would be utterly depressed if Harry was murdered, meeting the same gruesome end as his parents, and you might be right. I am in enough of a shock that Dumbledore died. Speaking of which, one theory that would be especially intriguing to hear is the matter of Snape and Dumbledore.
My feeling is, why would the brave Dumbledore, the greatest wizard who ever lived, have the dying words of “Severus…Please” unless he was trying to convey some kind of important message? Maybe that is just how the event unfolded. Maybe Dumbledore sacrificed himself so Snape’s cover as one of the loyal Death Eaters would not be blown. Maybe it was something else entirely…for you explore. So, remember that the celebration of Harry Potter is not at its end but only at its beginning, and if you feel compelled to respond to anything in this far-too-long introduction, please do so.

Hi, I'm Lily and age 13. I enjoy reading, writing (which may be obvious), running, and playing the drums. I love animals, and have a tortoise who goes by the name Joey. I also like online computer games, and hanging out with my brother and sister. (I am a triplet). My favorite colors are hues of light and dark green and I prefer rock over other genres of music. This concludes my short spew of information concerning myself, and have a nice day. :)
