I just wanted to have this on record before the book comes out.
Wrong! I have always believed that the prophecy was about Neville and not Harry. Neville was born the day before Harry. The prophecy says as the seventh month dies the chosen one will be born. His parents were seriously attached by Death Eaters and are living a fate worse than death in St. Mungos. I know JK says Neville has no mysterious destiny, but I can’t help believing this strange twist. If I am wrong, I feel Neville will have an important part in this book. Each book Neville magic skills have gotten stronger and stronger. He is a great friend to Harry. He is one of my top contenders for dying in this book. If not fighting Voldemort for himself, than trying to help Harry. Or battling Bellatrix to avenge is parents. Yes he will battle Bellatrix.
Dumbledore is dead. Snape killed him. Dumbledore is a portrait. Dead people become portraits, not alive ones. End of statement. He will be in this book through the portrait and in spirit.
But, I do believe that Snape was acting on Dumbledore’s orders. Snape will redeem himself and become a good guy. I’m not sure how, but he will. He is another one of my top death picks.
Semi-True- We learned she wrote to Dumbledore when Lily got into Hogworts and she didn't. We will learn more about Petunia and the letters that were sent to her house. I think it’s because though Petunia did not like Lilly, they are still sisters and there was some love between them. This love is what keeps Harry safe.
Damn, I thought of another one, but now I can’t think if it! If I remember it, I’ll add it here.
And I swear if Harry and Ginny are not together at the end of the book, one of them better be dead!
