Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I don't care who dies as long as Draco Malfoy does.

I think Snape and Harry will die, unfortunately. I hope I'm wrong and Snape doesn't die, but Harry does :twisted:

 

 

 

Edit: Wait, Voldy is supposed to die right? Then I think Snape and Voldy will die. Or I'd prefer Harry and Voldy to die

I'm not going to read this entire thread, in case somebody makes a close guess and spoils it for me.

 

 

 

But I had a bet with my sister, I said, "At the end of book 6, there are some mysterious initials

 

R.A.B.? I bet you that was Sirius' brother (Regulus A Black). That's the real reason Voldemort killed

 

him of course!"

 

 

 

If I'm right she owes me $20. :)


My greatest ambition is to kill every member of the human race.

However I am a realist and therefore know that I probably wont be able to.

I will have exams at that time, so I won't read it, until August.

 

 

 

I think the story will be terrible, but I'll give it a try and see.

R.A.B.= Robert Anthony Brienza= me :ohnoes:. i hope it's a coincedence :anxious: and i bet harry and voldemort will die in battle cause it would be a hero dying for his loved ones- very common. just like how neo died but took Smith with him in the matrix.

Wow, no one seems to have payed attention to the post from the guy on the last page about the locket Harry finds while cleaning the black house, with the initials "RAB" on it somewhere I think. Well, maybe no initials, but a locket. And it took some time to describe it, so obviously important. :wall: I noticed it too when I read it again last year. So, I guess Harry will be making another trip to the Black house in this book.

 

 

 

Also, I'm guessing that Harry will somehow live...Snape will weaken Voldemort, Voldemort will kill Snape, Harry kills Voldemort. Just my opinion though.

I don't tend to read science fiction or supernatural books but i can't help reading the awesomeness of HP. So i see this thread and was drawn to it... but I had to decide to quit halfway through the 1st page when i read the R.A.B. theory, which i might add is very good but you people seem to care a bit too much about prediciting the whole storyline and seemingly ruining your experience of reading it.

 

 

 

Anyways I agree with most of you that Harry will die, kind of an appropriate ending so that JK Rowling won't get as much spam as to what Harry's life after the 7th book is like. But i also think that Voldemort will die aswell in a stalemate fight or something or other.

Information from Rowling

 

 

 

* Rowling drafted the last chapter of the book several years ago, to give herself an ending to work up to. The last word of the last chapter of the book was said to be scar, according to Rowling in a 1999 interview.[38] She also suggested the last chapter and last word could change. This last chapter contains details of what happens to each surviving character:

 

 

 

This is the thing that I was very dubious about showing you... this is the final chapter of book seven. This is really where I wrap everything up, it's the epilogue. And I basically say what happens to everyone after they leave school - those who survive - because there are deaths - more deaths coming. It was a way of saying to myself, 'Well, you will get it, you will get to book seven one day. And then you'll need this!' So I'd just like to remind all the children I know who come around my house and start sneaking into cupboards that it's not there anymore - I don't keep it at home anymore for very, very, very obvious reasons. So there it is.[39]

 

 

 

* Rowling has stated that there will be no Quidditch matches in Deathly Hallows.[40]

 

 

 

* J. K. Rowling said in 2001 that Harry might get another pet at some point.[41] Although Buckbeak may have filled this role (Harry obtained possession of the Hippogriff after the death of Sirius Black, albeit under Hagrid's care), she also hinted that Fawkes, Dumbledore's phoenix, might have another role.[42]

 

 

 

* We will learn something very important about Lily:

 

 

 

Now, the important thing about Harry's mother - the really, really significant thing - you're going to find out in two parts. You'll find out a lot more about her in book five, or you'll find out something very significant about her in book five, and you'll find out something incredibly important about her in book seven." ÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬Ã¢ââ¬Ãâ J. K. Rowling[43]

 

 

 

* Rowling has long said that the fact that Harry's eyes resemble his mother's is "very important."[44]

 

 

 

* Severus Snape has been an important and enigmatic character throughout the books, as his true loyalty has always remained unclear. It is to be anticipated that as a surviving major character, his loyalty will be settled in the final confrontation of the book.[45][46]

 

 

 

Questioner: ThereÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬Ã¢ââ¬Å¾Ã¢s an important kind of redemptive pattern to Snape.

 

Rowling: He, um, thereÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬Ã¢ââ¬Å¾Ã¢s so much I wish I could say to you, and I can't because it would ruin. I promise you, whoever asked that question, can I just say to you that I'm slightly stunned that you've said that and you'll find out why I'm so stunned if you read Book Seven. That's all IÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬Ã¢ââ¬Å¾Ã¢m going to say.[43]

 

 

 

* She has stated we will learn more about Peter Pettigrew and Dumbledore and their respective families.[40]

 

 

 

* At the Edinburgh book festival, Rowling mentioned that something more would be revealed about Petunia Dursley. Nothing of note occurred in book 6, so this remains to be discovered.[47]

 

 

 

"..there is a little bit more to Aunt Petunia than meets the eye...She is not a squib, although that is a very good guess. Oh, I am giving a lot away here. I am being shockingly indiscreet."

 

 

 

Rowling repeated this comment at the Radio City charity reading in August 2006.[48] She clarified by stating that Aunt Petunia will not perform magic.[49]

 

 

 

* Rowling has said that some non-magical character will perform magic late in life under desperate circumstances.[50] However, Petunia will not be the one to perform magic (see above).

 

 

 

* Also at Edinburgh, Rita Skeeter was mentioned: "She is loathsome . . . but I can't help admiring her toughness. . . . There is more to come on Rita."[47]

 

 

 

* On Dolores Umbridge, "It's too much fun to torture her not to have another little bit more before I finish"[40]

 

 

 

* Rowling has said that Ginny Weasley is quite powerful, that we have seen a taste of that in the past, and we will see it again.[40]

 

 

 

* Viktor Krum is set for a reappearance.[51]

 

 

 

* Kreacher, the former Black Family house elf which passed to Harry's ownership with the death of Sirius Black, may make an appearance. Rowling told the filmmakers of Order of the Phoenix to include the character in the movie, because he is "very important."[52]

 

 

 

* Sirius Black's flying motorbike and the two-way mirror he gave Harry will return.[51] In fact, Rowling has mentioned in one of her FAQs that the two way mirror "will help more than you think." Rowling refused to comment whether Sirius himself might in some way reappear, but she has also said that there was a reason why he had to die.[53]

 

 

 

* Arthur Weasley's flying car, which was last seen in the Hogwarts forest,[HP2] will reappear.[54]

 

 

 

* Rowling refused to comment when asked whether the locked door in the Department of Mysteries in the Ministry of Magic would feature in the final book.[55]

 

 

 

* Dumbledore was said to have a "gleam of triumph" in his eyes when told that Voldemort had restored his body using Harry's blood, at the end of Goblet of Fire (Ch. 36). Rowling has confirmed that this is "still enormously significant".[55]

 

 

 

* Rowling revealed in a 1999 interview that one of Harry's classmates will become a Hogwarts teacher, though not Harry himself and 'not who you think'. When asked, Rowling also ruled out Ron. This implies that Hogwarts will re-open at some point.[43]

 

 

 

* In an interview after the completion of the Prisoner of Azkaban film, she commented that director Alfonso CuarÃÆÃâÃâón had "put things in the film that, without knowing it, foreshadow things that are going to happen in the final two books. So I really got goosebumps when I saw a couple of those things, and I thought people are going to look back on the film and think those were put in deliberately as clues."[56]

 

 

 

* There are indications that at least two of the main characters will die. In a June 2006 interview about the previously-written ending, Rowling stated that:

 

 

 

"One character got a reprieve, but I have to say two die that I didn't intend to die...A price has to be paid. We are dealing with pure evil...They go for the main characters...well, I do".[15]

 

 

 

* When further questioned in June 2006 about authors who kill off their main characters, Rowling said "I can completely understand, however, the mentality of an author who thinks, well, I'm going to kill them off because that means there can be no non-author-written sequels".[15]

 

 

 

* Rowling clarified that "Dumbledore is definitely dead", when asked by Sir Salman Rushdie and others at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Rowling answered the same question three times, each time with increasing conviction.[57] However, on the set of the Order of the Phoenix film, she remarked; "Dumbledore's giving me a lot of trouble". When asked "But isn't he dead?" by Daniel Radcliffe, she explained; "Well, yeah, but it's more complex ...."[58]

 

 

 

* When asked what questions she should have been asked, she admitted that "the final book contains a couple of pieces of information that I don't think you could guess at", and declined to explain further.[48] On 13 September, 2006 she updated her website saying that when she was asked that question, her mind went blank. Since she couldn't make amends, she created a NAQ section of her website, in tribute to the girl who asked the question. In her NAQ section, she states:

 

 

 

"Why did Dumbledore have James' invisibility cloak at the time of James' death, given that Dumbledore could make himself invisible without a cloak?"

 

 

 

On 29 September 2006, she revealed that Severus Snape was not under the cloak the night of the Potters' death in the Rumours Section of her website.

 

 

 

* Asked which five of her characters she would like to invite to dinner, she chose Harry, Hermione and Ron, but then hesitated before choosing her last characters, saying "See... I know who's actually dead," unsure whether she was permitted to invite those who are 'dead'.[48]

 

 

 

* Lord Voldemort was voted best villain at the Big Bad Read poll. Responding to the news Rowling commented:

 

 

 

"I hope those of you who voted for him in the big bad read enjoy reading about him in book seven, where he finally gets the leg room for which he has been aching all those years in exile."[59]

 

 

 

After Deathly Hallows

 

 

 

As of 2007, Rowling has been working on the Harry Potter stories for 17 years.

 

 

 

* In a 2000 interview through Scholastic, Rowling stated that there isn't a university after Hogwarts and that she did not plan on further Harry Potter books:[60]

 

 

 

Q: Do you think that you will write about Harry after he graduates from Hogwarts? Isn't there a University of Wizardry?

 

A: No, there's no University for Wizards. At the moment I'm only planning to write seven Harry Potter books. I won't say "never," but I have no plans to write an eighth book.

 

 

 

* When asked about other books similar to Quidditch Through the Ages and Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, she has said that she would consider writing them at some point and that they would also be written for charity. She has suggested an encyclopedia-style tome containing information that never made it to the books, also for charitable purposes.[15][16]

 

 

 

* Rowling jokingly posted on her website saying that if she was to make an eighth book, then it could be called: "Harry Potter and the Mid-Life Crisis."

 

 

 

* Shortly before the release of book 5, in an interview for the BBC, she was asked about Harry's future by Jeremy Paxman:[61]

 

 

 

Jeremy Paxman: So you know what is going to become of all the major characters over the span of the series?

 

J.K. Rowling: Yeah...yeah.

 

Jeremy Paxman: Why stop when they grow up? Might be interesting to know what becomes of Harry as an adult.

 

J.K. Rowling: How do you know he'll still be alive?

 

Jeremy Paxman: Oh. At the end of book seven?

 

J.K. Rowling: It would be one way to kill off the merchandising.

 

 

 

* Rowling issued the following statement about finishing the final book on her website:[9]

 

 

 

ÃÆââââ¬Å¡Ã¬Ãâ¦Ã¢â¬Å I always knew that Harry's story would end with the seventh book, but saying goodbye has been just as hard as I always knew it would be. Even while I'm mourning, though, I feel an incredible sense of achievement. I can hardly believe that I've finally written the ending I've been planning for so many years. I've never felt such a mixture of extreme emotions in my life, never dreamed I could feel simultaneously heartbroken and euphoric.

 

 

 

Some of you have expressed a (much more muted!) mixture of happiness and sadness at the prospect of the last book being published, and that has meant more than I can tell you. If it comes as any consolation, I think that there will be plenty to continue arguing and speculating about, even after Deathly Hallows comes out.

I reread the sixth book this past week, and I spent most of yesterday afternoon catching up on theories and interviews with Rowling about the 7th book. I feel a little guilty for getting so excited about something that is clearly not "great literature," but I'm so completely excitingly anticipating this next book :x

 

 

 

Also, in terms of theories, I'm of the "Reg Black is RAB and Mundungus Fletcher now has the horcrux locket and is among the things he stole from the Black house, Harry's scar is a horcrux that Voldemort accidentally created, Hagrid and Neville are probably going to die, and Snape is good" camp.

 

 

 

I just have to decide which midnight release party to go to!


Everybody hug and spread the love :D

It comes out the day before I come back from camp! My mom promised to buy it for me since I'll have no store to buy it from near me :notalk:

 

 

 

I can't wait for it! I think Voldemort and Snape will die.

lawl, I know at least one of the characters you guys said dies, dies, and how he dies! Not gonna spoil it for you because I'm not a nub, but if you remember the website that spoiled the sixth book (I'm the woman tomarrow, cat) it's around there.

 

 

 

As for reading this book... nah, they'll make a movie of it, and I like the talky-pictures better than words on paper.
