Final Deathly Hallows Debates: Unanswered Septology Questions

Like Hogwarts Castle itself, the Harry Potter books hold many mysteries, and have many hidden secrets. Hopefully, most of these mysteries will be answered in the final book. Is something funny going on at St. Mungos? What ever happened to Sirius' two-way mirrors? Where is Fawkes? There are so many others. What mystery are you most looking forward to being answered, and how do you think it will come out?

1-When dumbledore was showing harry the first memory, he didn't ask harry to translate the Parseltongue, could he be a decendant of slytherin?

3. In book five there is a article in the prophet that talks about the of Broderick Bode, that says the devil's snare ed him instantly, when he touched it. Don't you have to fight the snare for it to you instantly?

Are pictures of the hogwarts founders on the wall in dumbledore's office?

In one of its songs the Sorting Hat said that it belonged to Godric Griffindor. Then how come Dumbledore said that the only known relic of Godric was the sword?
I have a feeling that the sorting hat have a significant role to play.
I would love to know how luna would be able to talk to her mom.

-In book 6, why did Dumbledore pull some of his memories out of his head, yet he pulled others out of a vial?
It's a longshot, but I'm going to say that the Dumbledore that used the memories out of the vial is not the real Dumbledore. What if it is Aberforth using Polyjuice potion to impersonate Albus, and Aberforth is the one who d, and Albus is still alive and in charge of the bar at the Hog's Head?
-What about the Giants?
I think Hagrid and Grawp be successful at turning a lot of the giants to the good side, which be critical when open war begins in book 7.
-What about Snape?
Obviously, a lot of readers still think Snape is good, myself included. Harry is no way strong enough to defeat Voldemort alone, he needs help. I think Snape be in the arena during the last battle, and he turn on Voldemort at the end and sacrifice himself so that Harry can finally the Dark Lord.
-Missing horcruxes?
What if the cursed necklace that Malfoy tried to Dumbledore with is Ravenclaw's? It was mentioned in Book 2, in Borgin & Burkes, it had ed 19 muggle owners to date. Marvolo's ring was cursed and it was a horcrux, so maybe the necklace is too.

I still think tht the potion Dumbledore drank in the cave was meant to make him relive the suffering of the two children that Voldemort tortured there when he was a child. Somehow that memory was extremely important or satisfying to Voldemort, otherwise, why hide the horcrux there?

Oh man, so many things I want to know, and so many I'm sure won't be answered because they just won't matter to the plot!

1. Who taught divination before Trelawney? What happened to that person?
2. What did the sorting hat say to Neville during the full minute he had it on his head?
3. What was Dudley's worst memories when the dementors were attacking them?
4. How come Hermione spends SO MUCH time away from her parents? Do they really just not understand her?

That's all for now, though I know I have many many more! Just can't think of them for the moment.

1.What is the significance of the scar above Dumbledore's left knee- "A perfect map of the London Underground".
2.What are the dragons protecting in the high security vaults in Gringott's?
3.Did the light "Put-outer" do more than just make the street dark on Privet Drive? We don't see it used again.
4.Is it possible that Hermione is Harry's sister? Was she under the invisibility cloak the night the Potter's d?
5. I think we see more about Aberforth and bezoars.

What religion, if any, do wizards typically follow?
How do wizards become ghosts?
Is there a "Hogwarts" in America?
What happens to wizards who aren't accepted or allowed to attend a school of witchcraft and wizardry?
Can muggles see phoenix's and other similar animals?
Can muggles become werewolves?
What happens when a famous persons child is found to be magical? (Like the presidents daughter)
What happened to the prisoners when the demonters left?
Does America have a Quidditch team?
Would said team be called the Patriots?
Is there an American Democratic-Republic of Magic?
Who's the President of Magic?

Of course none of these questions really matter. I haven't even scratched the surface. Their not really septology mystery's, I just wonder what the United States of Magical America would be like. Probably pretty awesome I have to say.

I so hope this last book be satisfying, with so many questions to answer- apart from the obvious ones (Horcruxes, Snape, etc...) for instance, why did James leave his invisibility cloak with Dumbledore before he d? How Wormtail pay his to Harry? How come Aunt Petunia know so much about the magical world?

Posted by Cecil from Tacoma WA on June 22, 2007 10:50 PM

Who is the new Eater? Is it Seamus Finnigan or Dean Thomas? Will Crabbe and Goyle follow in Malfoy's footsteps?

And what happens to Draco and his mother?

If R.A.B. is not Regulus Black (and I'm sure he isn't), then is it Aberforth, who might go by his middle name?

What is the last Horcrux?

There are SOO many mysteries that I want answered right now, but for the moment Im just going to content myself with clearing up some comments other people have made.

1-Oscar from IL said "How come there weren't two prophecies in the hall with harry's name on them? wasn't one said to him in the third book?" The answer to this is that the name on the prophecies doesn't refer to who the prophecy was said to, it refers to who the prophecy is about. We know this because the prophecy that had Harry's and Voldermort's name on them was said to Dumbledore, and Dumbledore's name wasnt on it.
2- Tom Riddle from TN said "In book 6, why did Dumbledore pull some of his memories out of his head, yet he pulled others out of a vial?" The memories that Dumbledore pulled out of his head were his own, yet the memories that he pulled out of the vile were other people's. Obviously Dumbledore can only pull memories out of his head that belong to him.

I also wanted to ask Tor from As, Norway a question. He said "It allso be interesting to see wether Malfoy is a Werewolf or not." I was just wondering why you think that Malfoy's a werewolf. Im not saying your wrong, Im just curious.
