Here's what I think...

Voldemort will kill Harry.

Longbottom will kill Voldemort.   

Word.  We already know that Longbottom has an important role to play in the finale.  I do think this is how it will play out.

Nope...Dumbledore has already said the prophecy does not apply to Longbottom, Harry asked more than once

Agreed.  But Rowling's has mentioned that Longbottom does have a role to play in the final book.  Personally I think he becomes the DADA teacher upon graduation.  She has already stated that one of the students will become a teacher at the end of the 7th book.  I think it will be him.

Either must die at the hand of the other and neither can live while the other survives.

Once Harry's dead, though, the prophecy is fulfilled and - as i would interpret it - anyone could then kill Voldemort.  It's been established that Harry doesn't have the anger in him to successfully pull off a Avara Kadvara....I think Longbottom may...

Here's the whole thing:

"The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches... born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies... and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not... and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives... the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies..."

I'd say it means that "one" person will have the power to kill Voldemort, not "two" the prophecy, as has already been stated, does not apply to Neville due to the fact that Harry was marked (chosen) as his equal (his scar). 

So you can say the prophecy isn't true and that it won't happen that way but I don't see the point of having a prophecy to begin with if its not going to play out that way

Harry Potter's not gonna not die on Saturday, July 21st.

(So they're not gonna capitalize on the very obvious, yet still very cool, date of 7-7-07?  That just seemed like a natural.  Oh well.)

Absolutely.

Maybe I should change my post to reflect the change.  Don't want to spoil it for anyone else.

Great....so a portion of this book MAY contain paper that Colman used to wipe his ass.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Thanks, Matt. Neat cover. It'll be nice to see the back as well since there are some clues in the covers, I've noticed.

I think we're looking at the back in image two.

think of it as the dust jacket laid flat.
