Dumbledore Clues

by David Haber

These are some of the clues contained in the pages of Harry Pottter and the Half-Blood Prince which support the possibility that Dumbledore is not really , or at least Snape Dumbledore on Dumbledore's orders, and that everything that happened that night was planned well in advance by Dumbledore himself.

Does anyone else think that Dumbledore might be BAD? I really do think so - in the fourth book, when Harry reveals that Voldemort could touch him, he saw "a gleam of triumph" in Dumbledore's eyes. Also, there's Hagrid - JK mentions several times in the books that he loves dangerous animals. Additionally, he repeats over and over that he loves Dumbledore! Futhermore, Dumbledore and Voldemort have the same Arithmancy numbers - see Beyond Hogwarts - and someone mentioned that there was another person at the Potter's house the night they d. Dumbledore would have known that Sirius wouldn't have betrayed the Potters, and would have defended Sirius were he a good guy. I don't know if Dumbledore is necessarily working with Voldemort, but I think he's a bad guy. In that case, it might even be better that he was ed by Snape!

I've stopped believing that there's any way Dumbledore is still alive because JKR has said he is . She says it quite firmly, and I've been chasing theories for so long now (honestly, since I was 13 when the first book came out) that I've noticed she does tell the truth when we're all headed down the wrong track.

That said, it is my firm belief that Snape ed Dumbledore because Dumbledore ordered him to, and that it was planned.

What I am really wondering and I don't think anyone seems to have thought about yet (though I have not read all comments), is what the liquid that was covering the fake horcrux that Dumbledore had to drink was. Any ideas? I honestly haven't a clue...

I must say, you've done a awesome job, with not only to put all this clues together, but to raise the hope to all of us who do not want to admit to ourselves that Dumbledore's , but I disagree with you on what you've written first as nr. 1. I do not think that Harry was safe, even though he was under his cloak, because as noble as Harry is, he would'nt let Malfoy or any of the Eaters do anything to Dumbledore, but would have acted, and maybe by that, would've been ed by the Eaters. So my point is, that Dumbledore made Harry immobile to save his life...

There was a whole lot of foreshadowing going on in the movie version of Prisoner of Azkaban, we know that. However, have you paid any attention to the movie version of Goblet of Fire?

You know how Cedrid d? He, just as Albus in the book, was thrown backwards when he was hit with the spell.

Well, Cedric d the other way in the books, you may say. Well, does Harry actually see Cedric when he s?

"A blast of green light blazed through Harry's eyelids, and he heard something heavy fall to ground beside him."

Harry does not see Cedric at this moment, because the spell is so bright that it acts as a cover. He also hears - HE HEARS - Cedric fall to the ground.

While i was reading the last comment, something strucked me that indeed Dumbledore is really and from the beginning, what if, just a thought here, what if all those years, dumbledore is a impersonator who's close to Harry and present his or her real identity later? Why did he send a howler to Aunt Pertunia to remind her? She have alot to do with this in book 7 as JKR said that Pertunia is not what she seems to be.

I couldnt come to terms with Dumbledore's . Simply cant digest it. Even skipped a meal.

But, I think, in order for Harray to prevail over Voldermart, he has to stand up on his own, and not with Dumbledore's health. I think, the is real, as this book mostly covers Harry and Dumbledore and their efforts and findings. So it be fitting for Harry to be alone, but to bring down voldermart at the end, in the next episode.

I think that Snape was part of the plan and that he SAID avada kedavra but didn't mean it and did expelliarmus.

I am convinced that Dumbledore is actually. I mean you gotta the only wizard who's more powerful than the Dark Lord. It wouldn't make sense to call it the "Harry Potter series" if Harry has the strongest wizard on his side. I think it's about time Harry did something on his own.

wow. at first i thought that dumbledore was gone, but now i guess that he's not... or he is... or he's not... this site just made me incredibly confused!

if dumbledore is but if his phoenix is a horcrux, what was the purpose? he come back as voldy did? or he take control of harry and be in his head?

I think that Dumbledore is really (how sad it is to believe) because Harry has to challenge Voldemort on his own, but I think that Dumbledore is by his own orders.

I can't imagine that Snape turns out to be bad... in all the books Dumbledore claims to know that Snape is on the good side because he "knows something about him". Dumbledore has never been wrong before in all of the books and I just don't want to believe that he is wrong this time by claiming that Snape is at the good side.

At the tower (I don't know the correct passage) Dumbledore gives Snape a certain look. That look can mean that he orders Snape to do what he has to...

At the other side: when Dumbledore falls down, he hasn't broken anything right? And there is no blood... If I would fall from the highest tower there certainly be blood or at least some broken bones... Is it possible that his internal magic has saved him?

Wow... I'm confused now! I can't wait till the next book comes out!

to myra:
ther is blood on dumbledore's face, harry wipes it of with his own sleeve, and there are broken bones because his arm and legs are stange angled. so he can be faking it but i don't think so
