Searching for clues
I am probably going to adjust this column in the future depending on any feedback I will receive. I am writing it without something fixed in my mind but just trying to put into writing some things I had thought of lately
First of all, nothing really important but the following; Every chapter seems to have at least one clue. In the book 6, while I am writing chapter summaries, I notice that all chapters are approximately 20 pages. Every single chapter seems to be written to hide or set up the foundation for a clue in the Harry Potter stories. I have never actually read the books keeping this in mind and looking for them, but sometimes I wish I had, because there is a chance I missed some.
In some cases I have purposely left them in the chapter summaries since I find them too suspicious to leave out and too probable to have more meaning then most people would give it. I looked back rapidly and found a few obvious ones. I will need some more time to re-read my own chapter summaries to recognize any other... if I find any I will add them here.
The Snape issue and while re-reading book 6 with more attention while writing summaries I noticed some peculiarities. First of all, Snape invented his own spells. That by itself I find highly interesting since it seems to be a process of improving spells. Where is the limit of a spell, what kind of spells are possible and how does it work. Second, something else, the creating of a Horcrux is in the book said to be done with a spell. Hermione did not found ANY reference or info in the Library apart from a small notice. Slughorn did not seem to know much more details. The subject is banned from Hogwarts. It seems almost impossible to find much research on the matter. How the heck did Riddle find out the spell? Maybe we get to find out, maybe not. But I thought that combining 1 and 2 might also be interesting. Maybe Snape 'invented' or 're-created' the spell for Voldemort. Maybe he knew and that is why he is his most trusted/loyal follower. Maybe Snape feels regret for doing it, which led to the death of Lily Evans. I actually doubt this one myself very much since Snape would have told Dumbledore and they would not even have needed Slughorn's memory. But still the fact that Snape invented spells is quit intriguing.
So far the stuff I could remember, will put more when I think of more subjects.
