I think I have a different idea then others about book 7's ending. I have a odd feeling that one of the Horcrux is in Harry himself... that is how he speaks to the snakes.... why he should have been in Slytherin... and his temper... Its been said that some of Voldys powers were transfered to Harry when Voldy tried to kill Harry. Perhaps killing Harrys mum was powerful enough to place a Horcrux in Harry? I believe that Harry will end up taking his life or they will kill each other at the same time... making Harry a marytr. Just IMHO
I thought there was a lot of snoggering in this book, forgive me, but does that just mean kissing, or making out, or possibly hint at more? I figured it just ment kissing but I am not sure.
I had the exact same thought about one of the horcruxes being in harry. It makes sense with the prophecy,
OOP pg 841 american version
"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.
That to me says that as long as a part of the dark lords soul is in harry, voldemort is not dead, and if voldemort kills harry, a part of his soul dies. Of course dumbledore also says that voldemort was going to kill harry so he could make a horcrux but since harry did not die he could not make it. So overall I do not know what is going to happen there.
Another thing, remember just because dumbledore is dead, his portrait did come up in the headmasters office, so if nothing else harry can still recieve guidance from the picture of dumbledore, as pictures talk.
As for dumbledores death would it be possible to get polyjuice potion and have someone be dumbledore for snape to kill him? I dont think its dumbledores style though to have a funeral like that and then come back a few days later and said sorry guys it was all for show. I am going with he is really dead. Maybe he will choose to be a ghost so that he can live at the school forever.
JKR is really big about choices. I think that is why she showed us so much of tom riddle's past as well as some of snape to show that harry, snape and tom had similar beginnings, and due to thier choices , their lives are vastly different. I also thought it was interesting how draco could not kill dumbledore, as much as he despised him (just repeating his fathers opinion?), when it came down to it he could not do it. that shows that malfoy is not all bad. Remember how moaning murtle said that he had been crying in the bathroom, and how we saw him before harry put that curse on him? He was being forced to do it, and he did not want to... I wonder how that will play out in book 7.
