Harry Die – – – NEVER

Harry Die

That’s the only question that really matters, isn’t it? Remember in “Goblet of Fire” that Dumbledore gets a “gleam of something like triumph” in his eyes when Harry tells him that Voldemort used a drop of Harry’s blood to revive himself. Rowling calls the gleam “extremely significant.” Perhaps, like his scar, giving blood to Voldemort somehow protects Harry. Who knows?

Well, J.K. Rowling does. The rest of us will just have to wait and wonder.

Albus Dumbledore… Goodbye… Not Yet!

Harry Potter Crushed by the loss of Albus Dumbledore…

Harry proudly accepted the title of Dumbledore’s man through-and-through, but how little does he–do we–realize that Dumbledore was Harry’s man through-and-through!

Harry’s first year at Hogwarts

In Harry’s first year at Hogwarts, who made sure that Harry came into possession of his father’s old invisibility cloak?Albus Dumbledore, of course.

No one had better reason than the Headmaster himself to want to prevent his student from sneaking around the school at night, but Albus practically encouraged Harry to do just that.

Albus Dumbledore believed so much in Harry’s ability to face Lord Voldemort–and his right to do so–that he essentially stepped out of the way and let the boy carry on.

And later, he awarded Harry and his friends enough points in the house tournament (because of their heroic actions) to bring their house from last to first place!

Dumbledore saved Harry

The next year, Harry and his best mate Ron Weasley should have been expelled for the way they broke the rules.

To be sure, Dumbledore was disappointed in Harry when he arrived via the Whomping Willow in a stolen, illegal, flying car.

When the boys broke every third rule in the school rulebook to defeat Tom Riddle and stop the basilisk attacks, however, Dumbledore could have had them expelled. Instead, he had them honored with special awards for services to the school!

Dumbledore entrusted Harry and Hermione

During Harry’s third year, Dumbledore entrusted Harry and Hermione with a most dangerous mission: to go back in time to save a convicted (but innocent) man and hippogriff from certain extreme injustice. Once again, he winked at extreme peril and high-level rule breaking on the part of his favorite student, even helping to cover it up.

Dumbledore show his Love to Harry

Harry’s fourth year at Hogwarts was where Dumbledore’s care for Harry begins to grow truly poignant. Don’t you realize that the sole reason Dumbledore pushed the age-restriction rule on the Triwizard Tournament was simply that he wanted to protect Harry? No headmaster or headmistress of Hogwarts had ever seen a need for such a restriction, but Dumbledore sensed the danger that Harry was in and was desperate to protect him, even at the risk of making himself very unpopular. It’s no wonder he was furious when Harry’s name still, somehow, came out of that Goblet of Fire!

Dumbledore fight for Harry

If there were ever any doubt that Dumbledore would do anything for Harry Potter, behold what happened in the boy’s fifth year at school. Dumbledore made himself the scapegoat for the crimes of Harry and his secret DADA group, Dumbledore’s Army. He had to flee the school and become a fugitive because he wanted to protect Harry and keep him in school. It’s a shame Harry didn’t appreciate this; by the end of the year he was yelling at the headmaster and smashing his favorite possessions. But Dumbledore took all this in stride, forgave the boy, and offered himself to blame for a death for which Harry was equally responsible.

Dumbledore give his life to Harry

And then there was Harry’s sixth–and Dumbledore’s last–year at Hogwarts. Even apart from the fact that Dumbledore spent the last of his strength protecting Harry, and that he knowingly risked and suffered so much to help Harry in his mission against the Dark Lord, consider this: It is my conviction that Dumbledore knew that his hour was at hand when he made Severus Snape Hogwarts’ Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. Dumbledore had resisted doing so for many years, in spite of Snape’s persistent attempts to attain the post. A man of Dumbledore’s insight must have realized that the year that began with Snape’s appointment to the DADA post would end in his own death. So what prompted him to make the appointment? Was it merely the fact that absolutely no other DADA teacher could be found, after fifteen years of the position being cursed? No, I think not.

I think that Dumbledore acted out of the same determination that led Minerva McGonagall to proclaim, “I will help you to become an Auror if it is the last thing I do!” I think he was aware that Harry had the ambition to be an Auror, and, as Harry himself realized, his best chance to fight Lord Voldemort laid in that direction. Dumbledore also knew that with Snape’s refusal to teach NEWT potions to any student who got less than an O on their potions OWL, Harry had no chance of becoming an Auror as long as Snape taught NEWT-level potions class. It was thus essential, for Harry’s sake, that the potions master be replaced. Therefore, Dumbledore courted his own death by promoting Snape to the DADA position, simply to furnish Harry with a potions master who would allow him to take the NEWT-level course.

Dumbledore, who had admittedly welcomed the death of countless unnamed people and creatures simply for Harry’s happiness, now welcomed his own death. He put Snape in the position that he knew would make a teacher prey to the Dark Arts, after so many years free of the Arts’ control. He left the entire wizarding world more insecure and leaderless than ever, more or less to advance the career prospects of a single, favored student.

Harry had better not let Dumbledore down, because if I am right, Dumbledore did all this for Harry alone.

The end of Hogwarts

Well, Harry’s not returning for his seventh year, and Ron and Hermione are going with him.

Also, Rowling described the Luna-commentated match as “the last Quidditch match.”

Still, it’s hard to believe, as Harry and Voldemort prepare for their final battle, that these two magical, handsome, cursed orphans won’t return to the place where each first felt truly at home.

Don’t worry … There still hope from Hogwart! Its all up to JK Rowling…

Harry’s scar is a Horcrux!

Harry’s scar is actually a horcrux, a big speculate, the scar that created when Lord Voldemort killed James and Lily Potter, although there is much dispute about this on the web.

I have a doubt about it, however, that the scar that started it all will play a key role as Harry’s story wraps up.

The scar make Harry seen the feeling and thinking of Voldermont …

Scar saved the life of Mr. Weasley…

After all, it’s in the first chapter of “Sorcerer’s Stone” that Professor Dumbledore says “scars can come in useful.”

And Rowling has said that the last word of the last book will be “scar” or associated with “scar”.

Snape still loyal to Dumbledore

Snape Pact to Dumbledore…
And still loyal to Dumbledore

It comes down to whether you believe Dumbledore was begging for his life when he said, “Severus … please”… he want to live or he was urging Snape to go ahead with an agreed-upon plan.

Seriouly I think they plan it ahead. The pact of Dumbledore and Snape “cling to some desperate hope.”

Still, in “Sorcerer’s Stone,” Dumbledore tells Harry that “to the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure.”

Would a man like dumbledore will thinks that really beg for his life?

Next…. Harry’s scar is actually a horcrux ?

The Potter Book Last Chapter

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

J.K. Rowling is officially back at work, writing the seventh, she say it will the last Harry Potter book.

Good news for pottermania like me.

If you haven’t read it but are planning to, STOP READING THIS STORY NOW! Go to the comics, go to Sports, change the color of your hair….

The bad news is that it will be release at least 2007 before “Harry Potter and the Cheneness whatever” published. (hehehee)

This is some of clues about what might happen in Harry Potter Book 7. Maybe we can answer to some of the questions…

  • Who is RAB?
  • Professor Snape is good or evil?
  • Draco will die?
  • What will be next to Genni And Harry?
  • Ron and Hermione somehow will end up to each other?
  • Harry’s scar is actually a horcrux?
  • The end of hogwart?
  • The Giant will join the Order of the Phoenix?
  • Does Harry die?

You’re not alone. At any given time, thousands of Muggles are scouring mugglenet.com for clues, joining message boards at the-leaky-cauldron.com or finding hope amid their grief at dumbledoreisnotdead.com.

We will look back some of “Half-Blood Prince” pages to find out more…

Who is RAB?

Some said it could it be Sirius Black’s dead brother, Regulus? Rowling has called that “a fine guess.”

There are other hints pointing to a Black family member having gotten the locket as horcrux from the cave. During the frantic cleaning of 12 Grimmauld Place in “Order of the Phoenix,” members of the order come across “a heavy locket that none of them could open.”

Find out more on my next post… TADAHHHH!!!!

JK Rowling Life Before and After Harry Potter

J.K. Rowling , the British author who developed the chronicles of Harry Potter and its subsequent smash hit flicks, has conceded on her Web site that she “dreads” having to pen the seventh and final installment of the series, which she is starting this year.

“I can’t quite imagine life without Harry,” she wrote on the site’s diary page. The fictional teen thaumaturge has helped make her a powerful women in the world, and a billionaire to boot, so that’s perhaps not remarkable. But in lieu of the limits of Rowling’s extraordinary fame and fortune, the author seems largely troubled with having to confront the end of the story itself.

“I contemplate the task with mingled feelings of excitement and dread, because I can’t wait to get started, to tell the final part of the story and, at last, to answer all the questions,” Rowling said. The author added that she had been “fine-tuning the fine-tuned plan of seven during the past few weeks,” and that “reading through the plan is like contemplating the map of an unknown country in which I will soon find myself.”

The sixth installment of Rowling’s fantasy series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, was released last summer. Booksellers flogged more that 10 million copies in the United States alone, adding to the total worldwide sales of the Harry Potter books of 300 million.

Rowling expects to start on the final book, not yet titled, next month.

Potential Dolores Umbridge of Harry Potter

The Harry Potter movies are slowly but surely depleting a vital resource from the film industry: venerable British actors and actresses. Look at the number of renowed actors from the UK portraying characters in the series: Maggie Smith, Alan Rickman, Kenneth Branagh, Emma Thompson, Miranda Richardson, John Hurt, John Cleese, Julie Walters, Michael Gambon, Ralph Fiennes, Gary Oldman, Dawn French, Julie Christie … the list is impressive and seemingly unending. Imelda Staunton has just been cast as Dolores Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Stephen Fry hasn’t appeared in the movies yet, but he’s been voicing the narrator in the video games.

I am worried that before the series is finished, the Harry Potter casting directors will have to recruit amateurs or, perish the thought, Americans. Can you imagine Renee Zellweger or Uma Thurman trying to mimic a British accent? Perish the thought.

After the jump, I’ve listed the top seven remaining well-known British charactor actors that I suspect may be sucked into future Harry Potter films, along with the possible roles they might play.

  1. Judi Dench—She’s been pressed into service with the Bond franchise but there’s certainly room for her at Hogwarts. Perhaps she could pop in briefly as Neville’s grandmother.
  2. Hugh Grant—I realize his face may be too instantly recognizeable. However, that’s what the makeup department is for. Can’t you see him in The Half-Blood Prince as one of the nasty Gaunts, or is he simply too charming?
  3. Helena Bonham-Carter—She was such a believable oppressed-looking housewife in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory that it is easy to see her as Merope Gaunt, cringing in a corner of the kitchen, in The Half-Blood Prince. Yes, she’s a bit old for the part, but I think it could work anyway.
  4. Colin Firth—I have no idea what he’d play in the Harry Potter series. But, you know, everything is better with Colin Firth in it. I don’t want the makeup men messing with his good looks, either, if you understand me.
  5. Simon Callow—He’s been in so many movies, but I always remember him as the Reverend Mr. Beebe in A Room with a View. I think he would be ideal as Professor Slughorn in The Half-Blood Prince, reaching for his box of crystallized pineapple.
  6. Joanna Lumley—The AbFab actress has been loaning her talents to several family films lately, including The Corpse Bride and Ella Enchanted. She would certainly liven up the Harry Potter films even in a minor role.
  7. Christopher Lee — The man has been in damn near every major movie franchise in the past 50 years, from Hammer’s Frankenstein films to the second Star Wars trilogy. It would be just plain wrong to exclude him from this one. Rumors were flying that he had been considered as the Dumbledore replacement when Richard Harris died, but I think he would have been a bit creepy. (But I thought that about Michael Gambon too.) Twenty years ago, he could have played the leader of the werewolves, but that’s too active for him now. He would, however, make a fine Rufus Scrimgeour, the Ministry for Magic in The Half-Blood Prince.
