Dumbledore Is Not !

by David Haber

Well... maybe not. At least, I don't think he is. Snape's betrayal and the of Dumbledore caught me completely by surprise. Dumbledore was , and on top of that, Snape had done it. And all of the clues point to two possibilities, that Dumbledore's not really , or at the very least, that Snape's not really a Eater, and he Dumbledore because Dumbledore ordered him to, as part of a grand plan.

Reader Comments: (Page 3)

Hey, on the subject of Aberforth, in book 4 pg 454 when Hagrid is found out to be 1/2 giant and he wants to resign Dumbledore says this "An excellent point" said Professor Dumbledore. "My own brother, Aberforth, was prosecuted for practicing inappropriate charms on a goat. It was all over the papers, but did Aberforth hide? No, he did not! He held his head high and went about his business as usual! Of course, I'M NOT ENTIRELY SURE HE CAN READ, SO THAT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN BRAVERY..."
This means Aberforth (if he did did in Albus' place) didn't realize the horcrux was fake since he couldnt read it. My theory is probably just dumb, but i think it is possible.

is it possible that dumbledore took elixir of life? after all he was best friends with nicholas flamel.

Not unless Dumbledore lied to Harry about it.

At the end of Sorcerer's Stone, Dumbledore tells Harry, "As for the stone, it has been destroyed" and "They have enough elixer stored to set their affairs in order and then, yes, they ."

So, unless he lied to Harry about it, there is no more stone and no more elixer for Dumbledore to take.

When Dumbledore was interred Harry thought he saw a Phoenix fly out of the tomb. Now the phoenix seems to be a very inportant part of the Dumbledore mystique. What if Dumbledore is an unregistered animagus? If you don't like that, how about this...We know from many different incidents the people in the portraits in the Heads Office are capable of performing many different actions, including visiting their other portraits (if any). Surely Albus Dumbledore has many portraits he could visit. He may be almost as effective as a portrait as when he lived.

Dave Haber, I would like u to think from my point of view that Dumbledore is , but it is not Albus, but Aberforth that is . If u carefully analyze JKR's interview with Salman, she says, Well Salman, ur opinion I would say is right when he says "Until the events of Volume 6, it was always made plain that Snape might have been an unlikable fellow but he was essentially one of the good guys. Dumbledore himself had always vouched for him. Now we are suddenly told that Snape is a villian and Dumbledore's rellik. We cannot, or don't want to believe this. Our theory is that Snape is in fact, still a good guy, from which it follows that Dumbledore can't really be daed and that the htaed is a ruse cooked up between Dumbledore and Snape to put Voldemort off his guard so that when Harry and Voldemort come face to face, Harry may have more allies than he or Voldemort suspects" She also agrees to what he says by saying that his opinion is right.She also says"I think you might be better at guessing plots than most" this definitely means that Albus Dumbledore is not . However, she says Dumbledore is definitely . This means, it has to be none other that Aberforth Dumbledore. What do u say?

Im really hoping dumbledore is trully not . I mean he was the next father figure for harry after his godfather d. I hope no one else s in the next book!

I don't think dumbledore d, because he could have elfin blood in him and they don't need wands to do magic. In the fifth Harry Potter book Lord Voldemort was about to Harry, but dumbledore came and made the gold elf jump in front of him and rebound the spell so if harry could be protected by the gold then maybe Dumbledore protected himself with the gold and made the spell on harry go away and fall out of the window.

First off. I have been a guest of Daves sites for many years now, and even got an early look at the site.
(aka Prof. Lupin)
To say he is anything less then a true fan, and/or a good person is not nessasry or wanted.

I suggest you all consider 2 things from the past to possibly solve the future.
1) Bill Weasley (OoP) as long as they don't take him off the Wizard cards he dosen't care (speaking of DD)
2) (CoS) As Long as someone is still loyal to me I never truely leave Hogwarts (DD speaking to others)
Not exact quotes but the idea is given.

Every Book Jo gives us more insite into the wizard world, there are still many things not known to us. I suspect that SB's 2 way mirror is "On the other side" with them all.
Consider being and contacting Harry with it! yes it's broken but not destroyed.
Na I don't think DD is a Pheonix animagus, perhaps a White/Silver Bumblebee (as his name translates).

i do not think dumbledore is , or at leat i hope he isn't BUT do you really think that (albus) Dumbledore would have let his own brother (Aberforth) to save himself? or maybe i'm missing someting important?

Well, my friend and me had the theory, that Snape is involved into a great plan created by Dumbledore. And Dumbledores is also a part of it. Just before his they leglimenty (German word is "leglimentieren", I�m sorry I cant remember the English one --*), last instructions, and Dumbly says his famous last words...?

I believe that he is really , but I cant really figure out Snapes role... This is what puzzles me. Ah.

In the sixth book of Harry Potter Harry opens the locket and finds the note from R.A.B could it be Sirius' brother Regulis Black trying to change his ways because it says that he d (ed) because he betrayed Voldi could he have tried to help before being ed?

i really appreciate ur ideas and totally agree with them.
however, i have a question, how can there be a tomb when Dumbledore is alive and if it isnt dumbledore's body whose body is it? also i would like to tell you over the issue of Umbridge that she wasnt counted as a rightful Headmaster thus was barred from using the office thus her potrait in the headmaster's rank was beyond question. also it wasnt necessary for a Headmaster to be to have his potrait hung in his office, according to me. what if a headmaster retired from his post? would it mean that he wouldnt be honoured with a potrait in the headmaster's office?
Also do u have any idea of who could be R.A.B. mentioned in the letter (in the locket) meant for Voldermort but found by Harry and Dumbledore?
