Here's some general Speculations about miscelaneous topics
|| I believe that the Mirror
of Erised in book one is one of the main clues to the entire series.
Ron sees himself as Headboy carrying the quidditch cup. Well now that
he is in the team and a prefect, well this is possible. He could come
out of the shadow of his brothers.
If that is so, then is it that Harry will be reunited with his parents
and other family?
After all we just know that his parents died. We know that Sirius
passed beyond the veil but did Bellatrix kill him we did not hear!
But what happened to them? There is no mention of a burials or of
a body to recover for Sirius to be buried.
If so are they truly dead or could they come back. For is Ron gets
his wish then Harry could receive his and be reunited with the family
he had never known.
But is that were true would Dumbledore receive more socks than he
knew what to do with!
It is possible that the Veil will become very important, I
feel. Is this where Wizards and Witches go when they die? I think
it could be or just those for whom it is a brief rest before they
return. For some wizards are immortal, Merlin for instance is immortal.
Dumbledore, I believe is Immortal and so is Harry if he defeats Voldemort.
Even if the mirror of Erised does foreshadow
the books I don't think that Ron will be head boy bc his grades aren't
all that great in the books. I think that Hermione wil do great on
her OWL'S but i'm not sure about Harry and Ron. I don't think we'll
learn more about there future careers until we get their OWL results.
Though if harry doesn't do well on them he could become a DADA teahcer
if he lives through the books.
first off when a couple of the prophecies fall one of them
says"at solstice will come a new.." solctice is the
longest and shortest day of the year,June 21 being one of them. the
same day book five is released! but since solstice fluctuates it could
be the third task it referes to and the next word might be EVIL.
when Harry's knife melts in the door thats the door dumbldore talks
when harry learn he's late for the hearing the witch that inters first
is carrying same potion snape made for lupin, bode who enters next
has sallow skin seeing as the ministry is under ground he could be
did you notice sirius "died" in the "death chamber".in
one of many interviews j.k.
stated that she had decided if sirius would be proven Innocent but
telling would ruin major plot point,like hes not dead?also "living"
versions of harry parent will not be seen so he will see them behind
and although just a thought luna's mom was working on avada kedavra
seeing as luna serves no real purpose.
I think that Hermione's wand is made of Dragon heart
string bc there are 3 common substances that wands can be made of
and since harry has a phoenix feather and ron has a unicorn hair than
Hermione must have a dragon heart string.
I believe that the Room of Requirement could play a
major part in the 6th and 7th books. Can anyone else see this scene?:
I need to talk to my parents, Harry thought, walking back and forth
past the wall. I need to meet them and get some answers.
I think that something like that - it could also be with Sirius -
will definitely play a bigger part. I also think that the mimbulus
mimbletonia and Grawp will be important to the story - Rowling
doesn't just put things in the story for no reason. .
Harry's Career; In my opinion, I do not think Harry
Potter will make a very good Auror. I believe a great job for him
is to be a Headmaster at Hogwarts. From past books, you can tell how
he likes to be in charge (Rescuing the Sorcerer's Stone, etc.), especially
in the 5th book when he wants to be the only one to go "rescue
Sirius". Most importantly, his work teaching the DA had a tremendous
outcome, as they all saved each other with what they learned.
In the 5th book there's a man mentioned that I think is Aberforth
Dumbledore. The only other time he was mentioned was in book 3
when he Albus said his brother had his moments of unpopularity. Then
in the Hog's Head, the bartender is a tall old man with long hair
& looks vaguely familiar. I think he'll show up in the next book.
Harry wants to take advanced potions so he can become an auror, so
what if Snape finally gets the DADA job & somebody else teaches
potions, so he can continue? (Aimee)
I read on the BBC newsround that JKR gave a teeny hint in her
reading, which included the career advice Prof. McGonagal gave to
Harry. I got a few ideas from that passage. One of my ideas was that
when Prof. McGonagal said she would help Harry become an auror,
it may mean that he will now begin to get "training in combat".
He now knows the secret that many of the adults know of and what is
expected of him. He may continue the D.A. group he began in OotP or
he may start training in various Defense Against the Dark Arts private
lessons, on the side, of course, with the aide of various teachers
and perhaps Dumbledore.
Another theory that came up in my musings
was those lines where Prof. McGonagal and Umbridge are bickering
about how there may be a new Minister of Magic by the time
Harry comes of age. Will Fudge continue to be the Minister by the
time all is said and done? How is the government system in the magical
world? Here in America and in many other countries, there are time
limits to terms of positions with a great deal of power. Will Fudge
have to "run again" for re-election? Is any of this really
significant now that Fudge is acknowledging the truth? Will he try
to help Harry, also? Will he be a useful ally or will he be as useless
and annoying as he's been in the past? Is he hiding anything?
I think that book 6 will be a bridge between
5 and 7, kind of like 3 was. There was a great showdown between
Harry and Voldemort in 1,2,4 and 5 so there may not be a showdown
between the two of them at all in 6. Voldemort might be planning
and scheming and doing other things in book 6. Or book 6
could have a showdown between Dumbledore and Voldemort where
Dumbledore dies and Harry goes out to avenge his death in 7.
The question also remains as to who will
be the new DADA teacher. Will he or she be an asset to Harry
and will the position will continue it's streak of bad luck? JK
Rowling has already proven that she likes to break trends of things,
people or events. Very little has remained constant throughout the
books so maybe there will be only one DADA teacher for the two years.
In regards to everyones favorite kid,
Malfoy. What will become of him? Malfoy is growing older
and stronger as the years go by along with Harry. Hes not
the most powerful of wizards but weve seen that you dont
have to be a great wizard to cause a lot of damage (Peter Pettigrew).
His hatred for Harry may fuel something terrible in him that could
cause Harry more damage then anybody realizes. Will Draco Malfoy
join his father in the Death Eaters? The Order of the Phoenix requires
wizards of age (although it may be that they will break this rule
for Harry since it all comes down to him) but do the Death Eaters
have to be a certain age to join? We know now that Malfoy wont
walk around boasting about his father anymore since everyone now
knows what kind of a piece of garbage this wealthy wizard really
is. Its clear the other two houses (Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff)
like to take Gryffindors side in everything against Slytherin.
So far of what weve seen is that Malfoy only has friends in
Slytherin, where as Harry and his friends have friends throughout
the three houses (Luna, Ernie). Liking Malfoy isnt easy so
how will his friends in Slytherin (Pansy for example)
treat him now that everyone knows the truth about the Malfoys. Bad
guys are notorious for bailing on each other when the stakes are
down. Malfoy, Crabbe, Goyle, Theodore Nott and any other children
of Death Eaters may now have to band together (and maybe start their
own group: Junior Death Eaters
I think Dumbledore and Voldemort are related. They can't
be brothers unless there was a way big age gap because Dumbledore
taught young Tom Riddle at school. They cant be son and father. Well,
they could but i doubt it. We never hear of a Mrs Dumbledore do we?
But Voldemort COULD be Dumbledores nephew. What if Voldemorts mum
was Dumbledore's sister? It could happen. I think they have some sort
of connection. I mean, it's conceivable. It could happen. I think
there will be several family links to come out. At least one anyway,
and it will probably be a shock. For example, Harry could be related
to Neville in some way. He could be related to Ron, or seeing as all
pure blood families are interelated and Harrys father was pure blood
he could be related to anyone, Malfoy, a death eater, any pure blood.
It could happen. (Hannah)
The old man in the Hogs Head- possible Dumbledore's brother
Aberforth. After all we know he is a shady character, and the
description is "...with a great deal of long grey hair and beard[like
Dumbledore]. He was tall and thin and looked vaguely familiar to Harry."
Well of course he would. being Dumbledore's brother he would resemble
This may not be a huge speculation but it could lead to more in coming
i think a member of the Order will come to Hogwarts
to be a DAtDA teacher, everyone now knows Voldemort's back,
so who better to protect and prepare the children from his attack
than the group of people fighting the hardest to stop him? Lupin for
example, now Voldemort's back I'm sure Werewolves are the least of
parents problems. Or maybe even Tonks, though she seems a bit haphazard
to teach- or maybe that's what gets her there? She's a bit too clumsy
to be in the Order properly? Or because she can change her appearance,
she could work as a different person, i mean she works not looking
like herself. (Hannah)
Why did they not ask the ghost of howarts to look for the Chamber
of Secrets when the teachers looked for it when it was opened
the first time ? (Philippe Marquis)
In book 2 Harry is asked to attend Nearly Headless Nicks 500th
anniversary of his death day. Page 135 states "an enormous gray
cake in the shape of a tombstone, with tar-like icing forming the
Sir Nicholas De Mimsy-Porpington Died 31 October, 1492
Therefore, if this is his 500th anniversary
of his death in 1492 then the date of the party Harry attended in
his 2nd year after recently turning 12 is 1992 ---
which means he was born in 1980. Reading further Tom Riddle opened
the Chamber of Secrets fifty years prior when he was 16 --- which
means Tom M. Riddle was born in 1926
(Paul M.T. W.)
when is krum supposed to finish school? hermoine mentions something
in book four, that he likes hogwarts much better than durmstrang.
and we need another new defense against the dark arts teacher. he´s
supposed to have learned quite a lot of that in durmstrang. isn´t
why is it always so pronounced that they are powerful magic creatures
but can only use it, when their masters allow them. It´s also
said, that hugest dwelling in britain is hogwarts. which means that
dumbledore is their master, doesn´t it? and what´s all
the talk about dumbledore´s army? (may be not against the ministry
but against someone else?) (Tonks)
Something I found very strange in
the 5th book is the use of the two names Purkiss and Perkins.
They sound very much the same, don't you think?? Doris Purkiss is
the woman, who thinks that Sirius is Stubby Boardman and Perkins
is the name of the man who works in the same office as Arthur Weasley.
BUT this is not the only time his name was mentioned. In the chapter
Educational Decree Number Twenty-Four (page 318) it is mentioned
again. They are having a History of Magic class and Hedwig comes
in, hurt. When Harry asks if he can go, Professor Binns tells him:
Yes,...yes, hospital wing, ... well, off you go, then, Perkins...
Even Binns should know that Harry isn't called Perkins, but Potter!
So why does he mix up the names??? (Emily
1. In the last book, Harry may need
to choose between living in this world or going 'beyond the veil'
to be reunited with his parents and Sirius. Of course he'd have
2. Since Snape is a member of the order, will his loyalty
lie with Harry who has close ties to the order, or will he still
side with Malfoy even though his father has been proven
to be a death eater?
3. Is Tonks the new DADA teacher?
4. When Rowling wrote about the magazine being banned, but
then everyone raced out to get a copy, was it a dig at those schools
etc who banned Harry Potter from their
5. Why does Harry always get in trouble for doing magic outside
Hogwarts, but Fred and George spent their holiday Apparating and
6. Harry should know by now to take Dumbledore at his word,
and if Dumbledore says to do something he should trust him. By the
same token, Dumbledore should realise if he wants Harry to do something
and it's important, he should give him reasons. If they communicated
properly, most terrible things could be avoided.
7. Harry and Snape should grow up and sort out their differences.
Harry still has to take potions, and is likely to join the order,
so they will be part of each other's lives for a long time. They
know a lot about each other. Harry saying he'll never forgive Snape,
even though Snape went off to get Sirius etc shows he can still
be very immature. Snape failing Harry for no reason shows he can
be immature. They could learn a lot from each other if they put
the past behind them. They don't need to be friends, just have a
8. Is Lupin going to play a bigger part in Harry's life now?
He's the last of James' school friends who can do so.
9. If Hagrid knew about the Thestrels, and Luna and Neville
could see them, why didn't everyone know about them? When they first
arrived and everyone was talking about the 'horseless Carriages'
why didn't someone who could see them say 'Actually, they're pulled
by these huge big horse-things......'
10. Why was Grawp brought into the story? Obviously something
major is going to happen with the giants in the next couple of books.
Are they going to join up with the
order? Dumbledore once mentioned it would be a good idea.? (Anthony)
Finally I found one site that mention
the disapearance of our little fellow Wormtail. I don't recall
that he's dead by the end of book 4. In OoTP, his name was mentioned
only twice. One is when Sirius think that Wormtail told Voldy that
he is Padfoot and when Harry saw him in old photograph of first
Order. Other than that, we have no clue. Here's my speculation:
Wormtail is (polyjuiced) Fudge. Fudge
in OoTP is rather strange and growing very unfriendly to Harry.
Remember how he treat Harry during PoA by giving him shelter and
"protection" form Sirius? He was willingly to break his
own rules to protect Harry.
And think how Harry and his friend could be so easily enter Ministry
office (through visitor entrance!) all the way to Department of
Magic. More than that, how could a dozen of masked Death Eater enter
the office afterward? I smell a rat..
No, Fudge is not under Imperius Curse. Mr
Weasley specifically mentioned this after Harry's hearing. (Irvan
I believe that if there is to be a
new Minister of Magic it will be Amelia Bones. Dumbledore
wont accept the position if offered and Bones seemed like
a fair person, plus, Im sure that JKR would like to have a
female in charge since she generally tends to forget about them.
Girl Power! (Soledad)
This is what i believe is going to
happen in the future of Harry Potter. Book six Hermione will
be injured by Voldemort and when she is in the hospital wing,
Ron and Harry will both go after Voldemort. Ron who we all know
is smitten with Hermione will surprise us all with the power that
he has, but it will not be enough, Ron will either be permentantly
injured or he will die. Harry will have the opportunity to
kill Voldemort but will fail, he will loose his nerve. Lupin
is going to be the new Harry father substitute and will play a big
part in the next book. The end of this series is going to end in
a blood bath. JKR told us that there were going to be very few survivors.
In book seven Harry will learn to the full exstent his connection
with Voldemort and learn of an ancient magic that binds them.
He will have to sacrifice himself in order to kill Voldemort,
after all didn't Dumbledore say that the power he has is in Love
and what greater love can Harry give then his love for the wizarding
community and Hogwarts by saving them all.
It will not be Dumbledore that tells Harry of this connection,
because as we know Dumbledore struggled at telling him of the prophecy
he wont be able to tell him of this. It will be Snape that
tells him and this will be his way of redeeming himself. The last
word of the book is supposidly 'scar'. I think this will refer to
a statue of Harry in Hogwarts. A lot of people are going to die
in the last book. I think Hagrid will go, Lupin definatly
and i think Ron will die in Book six. There needs to be alot of
death because Harry has to loose everything to make that big sacrifice
he also has to be angry enough. Ithink that Draco Malfoy
secretly likes Hermione and will join sides with Harry in the end
for her. Hermione and Dumbledore will survive in the end of it.
I want to know how Peter Pettegrew is going to tie into all
of this, wether there is a significance with Harry's eyes, Whats
Dumbledore going to do in the next books and how is Voldemort's
snake going to tie into things. (Debbie)
I knew I recognized Sturgis Podmore's
name from somewhere else. So I went back and looked. It was Sir
Patrick Delaney-Podmore from the Headless Hunt in COS. Is there
any relation between the two of them? I thought that was interesting
because JKR almost never has a "coincidence" in her books.
I wonder if there is a good reason that she used the name twice
Ok, this may be a completely wild
theory but here goes. JKR has impressd the fact that Dean Thomas
is an excellent artist.We also know that it's mostly (if not
always) potraits or paintings and not photographs that people can
converse with, especially since the subject has always been dead.
It seems pretty useful and an easy way to keep people "alive".
Now people have mentioned that JKR couldn't have completely "killed"
Sirius. I personally think he's dead, as are Harry's parents. I
also don't believe that any of them will come back as ghosts. I
have surmised that perhaps Harry will be able to speak to them as
portraits and may be Dean Thomas will be the one to bring them (or
at least Sirius) "back to life" in the "potrait sense".
I don't know how the potraits can bring people back to life, whether
the subject is dead or not when it's done but if it can be done,
then why shouldn't Dean give Harry the gift of kind of having Sirius
and his parents back? I think Dean's artistic talent will play some
kind of a role because why else has JKR told us numerous times that
he's an excellent artist? (Flower
I just thought of something.
Hermione is ALWAYS saying, " You can't
disapparate inside the grounds, " "You can't enter by
stealth" etc etc. well...it must be for SOME reason. i suppose
it could just be a joke JK likes, but what if it it's something
more? maybe someone tries to get in or gets in and tries to get
out and can't? Like, i dunno, a death eater or something, and then
they get caught? Just thought it was weird how they keep going on
about it. (Hannah xxx)
Well, I know what you mean. I read some interesting comment
on this site. Somebody wonders about the fact that Dobby 'visits'
Harry in the hospital wing, when his bones re-grow. Suddenly Dobby
hears somebody coming and guess what! He DISAPPARATES!!!!!! Strange,
isn't it? But I'm sure that you know that houseelves are very powerful,
on which is laid an emphasis too. I really don't know why, but something
tells me that THIS IS A HINT!!!!! ;-) (Sylvana)
In the fourth book it is mentioned that house elves use a different kind of magic, and the could be why house elves can apparate inside Hogwarts. (
Crookshanks... who I believe
was James and Lily's cat. He's very comfortable with Sirius Black.
He's also extremely smart and even though Sirius never knew the
cat, James and Lily could have talked about him around Crookshanks.
The shopkeeper also said he'd had Crookshanks for a very long time
and that no one wanted him. He also took a liking to Harry straight
away. His legs were also wobbly, as though he'd been hurt...perhaps
when Lily was killed and the house was detroyed. Maybe he'd been
trapped but managed to get out. But he was left injured. Just an
idea. (Kate J)
I wonder if anybody saw the fact of
Mundungus. Dumbledore told Harry that one person heard the begining
of the prophecy before been saked. Before that, Sirius had told
Harry that Mundungus was saked about twenty years ago, what if he
missed for about four years?, we know that Mundungus sells everything,
even a bit of information...
Another thing, i think that any wizard or
witch can do magic without a wand, the difference is that the wand´s
objective is to canalize the force of the wizard to focus in a spell,
hax or anything, but Harry dont seem to need a wand, he can canalize
his spells without a wand. The only creatures that can make magic
without a wand are house elves and goblins (and phoenix), but we
know that a wand is definitly necesary to make magic, because without
a wand you are condemned to act like a muggle ( we can see Hagrid
punishment: they broked his wand in two).
Now that Harry knows everything about his
destiny, i think it seems logical, that Dumbledore teach Harry to
fight "like Voldemort does", or like Dumbledore, new Harry´s
mission will be to teach DA every new spell, hax or whatever new
thing Dumbledore´ll teach him.
I can see a great battle at the end of the
seventh book, DA besides the MoM, giants, house elves, centaurs,
etc. fighting DE and Dementors, some Giants and goblins, and of
course: Voldemort. Wich another idea could Rowling have making Harry
to teach the Patronus course if it wasnt a battle against the dementors?
Perhaps another Easter Egg... something that (TPL) said about
the mirror that Sirius gave Harry to communicate with. I think perhaps
it was brought up again because THAT's how the Order has been communicating...
not to bring Sirius back .(AgentMoonHunter)
I think that the house elves may play an important role in
the future.It may sound absurd,but in Book2,Dobby mentions"Ah,harry
Potter,if only you knew what he means to us(house elves)...and the
Dark Lord was defeated,and it was a new dawn for us.."Dobby does
try to protect Harry,too.So,the house elves may help Harry win the
war against Voldemort.After all,we know that they have "powerful
magic of their own,but they can't use it without their master's permission".
Now,what would help house elves to do magic without permission?-S.P.E.W!.(R
