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.

I do not think that the potion at the lake was DOLD, but the only people we know that could most likely identify it are DD and Snape.
I'm sure Sluggy could, but with DD gone I exsect he disapear very soon.

I think book 7 start off with Dumbledores last and testament, that explain his and snapes involment. If Dumbledore were to be reborn like a pheonix, then he would be a baby, and no use to Harry, so I don't think thats plausible. I was actually more distraught with Sirius' , so Albus is definitly , but a letter explaine everything to Harry. He (albus) flew through the air after being hit with the curse, because he was already struggling to keep himself from slipping, as he d, his efforts ceased. Snapes digusted face, was because he was looking at what the greatest wizard of all time had become- weak, feable and pitiful, but I reckon it was under dumby's orders that he did the unforgivable curse. And I'm still waiting on the great significance of the two way mirror, Rowling said it would be revealed in HBP, but I must have missed it!

I think DD is because it said a flash of green light and that is definatly a sign of the avada kedavra curse. but on the other hand the nosebleed comment made by moody in book four said that all they could probably give him (moody) was a simple nosebleed. and it DID mention that a trickle of blood ran from the corner of DD mouth, but that could have been simply explained by the impact of the fall, i mean it was a pretty long fall wasn't it? i believe that JK ed off DD because that was harry's biggest protector, and if she was planning on ing off harry in her final book, there is no easier way to do it than get rid of DD.

ya, i kinda see your point... but its just too hard to believe that she would off DD...

If DD is (and I tend to think he is, at least for now) It would not have been a meaningless .

We NEED to look beyond what is obvious and try to see "beyond the veil" so to speak.

I think some one should write Albus Brian Wulfrick Dumbledoor's biography....

150 years he's lived, but we only have a record of about the last 53-55 years...

Book 8? Jo... Jo... Are you listening?

I don't think Dumbledore used the fire-freeze charm on himself when under the cloth. Remember in the fifth book how he escaped with Fawkes? He burst into flame after leaving his office with Fawkes, leaving Umbridge behind. I think he went under the cloth so that people could see the outline of his body, then, when the cloth transformed into the coffin, or whatever it was, he left with Fawkes.

I would like to submit my theory:
JKR said Dumbledore is , but WHICH Dumbledore? Albus Dumbledore had a brother who might have switched places with him so a Dumbledore IS , but not the one we think.

After reading through the information on this site I went back and read HBP over again, looking for the references that were cited. I did notice one additonal thing about Dumbledore's "" that caught my attention. Harry isn't released from the Body-Bind Curse the instant the Avada Kedavra hits DD, even though we know when we read about it in other places the victim s immediatly. Harry should be able to shout or scream as DD is flying through the air but he can't. "...jet of green light hit Dumbdledore squarely in the chest. Harry's scream of horror never left him; silent and unmoving he was forced to watch as Dumbledore was blasted into the air." Harry should have been able to cry out instantly as DD was hit with the curse but he can't. I don't think DD was as he flew from the tower. Can your spell be broken if you are simply knocked unconcious?

Even if DD body is , I don't think we've seen the last of him. Things have still gone according to his plan, whatever it is.

I think that the locket RAB stole is at 12, grimmauld place because it says in book 5 there was a big heavy locket none of them could open while they were cleaning the house. JKR might have just thrown in a clue that nobody noticed at first because it only started having any meaning in the 6th book when the horcruxes come into the story.

There's no evidence that the original horcrux in the basin in the center of the lake of inferi was a locket...

Thats just the easiest conection to make...

Posted by Kevin from Wisconsin on November 20, 2006 08:07 AM

Hmm. Why would R.A.B. replace the original horcrux with a locket if the original wasn't one? Why would he have had the fake locket with him?
