True. At the end I was in denial, thinking he was doing it to keep his cover, now I'm not so sure.

Bah.

Snape's a good guy.

Zoltar, Doyou really think VOldemort would make Harry A horcrux??

Maybe, but not intentionally.  Maybe his soul has been so damaged from all the killing it just kind of happened.  He's the only wizard that has made more than one horcrux.

It was just a theory.  I was kind of wondering why Harry was being written as so moody and dark, and that JK made sure the reader knew that.  I think it was a foreshadowing of something bad.

According to TVGuide.com - although we still have Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix coming up next July, Warner Brothers has also announced/booked Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince for November 21, 2008.  Two consecutive years with a HP movie, so that should be good.

That's actually a pretty good theory.  It fits with the prophecy and with what Dumbledore said about Harry having some of Voldemort's traits in Chamber of Secrets.

Well I thank you.  I guess I have to wait until next year to see if my guess is correct.  But there has to be a reason why it was repeated over and over that Harry was fighting dark tendancies.  Also, remember in book 1 when the Sorting Hat said he'd do just as well in Slytherin?  But then we'd have an evil Harry Potter and the books wouldn't be as fun...

J.K. Rowling Challenges Airport Security
Sep 14, 9:17 AM EST

The Associated Press

LONDON -- British author J.K. Rowling says she won an argument with airport security officials in New York to carry the manuscript of the final "Harry Potter" book as carryon baggage.

Had security agents not relented, she said on her Web site, she might not have flown, she said in a posting dated Wednesday.

"I don't know what I would have done if they hadn't — sailed home probably," she wrote.

The author had participated in a book reading for charity on Aug. 1 with fellow writers Stephen King and John Irving. Security was drastically tightened after Aug. 10 when British police said they had intercepted a plot to blow up U.S.-bound airliners.

"The heightened security restrictions on the airlines made the journey back from New York interesting, as I refused to be parted from the manuscript of book seven.

"A large part of it is handwritten and there was no copy of anything I had done while in the U.S."

Eventually, she added, "They let me take it on, thankfully, bound up in elastic bands."

Rowling said she was still considering two possible titles for the last of the boy wizard's adventures.

"I was quite happy with one of them until the other one struck me while I was taking a shower in New York," she wrote.

"They would both be appropriate, so I think I'll have to wait until I'm further into the book to decide which one works best."

Yeah, that was the most-curious part of the article to me, too.

It's easily the sexiest thing to happen the Potter series since the Vibrating Nimbus 2000 toy from a few years ago.

I read online that Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) is having some reservations about whether or not to sign on for the last two movies in the series.  Read about it in this Newsweek article.  It would really be tough to recast the role, IMO.  But the article does state that Daniel Radcliff (Harry Potter) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) have signed on for the remainder of the series.

I hope she comes back, I hope they all do! It'd be a perfect ending to a fabulous movie series. I loved the last one, replacing the first movie as my fave.

Oh and I don't know how much the discussion has gotten into Snape, but I believe he will be the one taking over Hogwarts at the end of the last book. He did what he had to do in order to save Draco from becoming evil like his father. As of now, Draco is simply following what the elder Malfoy has filled in his head!! I also think Harry has a good chance of dying in order to prevent Voldemort from having the slightest chance at returning cause I do think Harry is a Horcrux.
