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?

confused about something....

The sorting hat says that Slytherin is only pure bloods (book 5) but Tom Riddle was in Slytherin and he was not pure blood...Why?

where did dumbledore go when he was forced to leave hogwarts in CoS & in OotP?
Parentage of Dumbledore?
what are the ways other than in which a man can be destroyed? (other than getting your soul sucked by dementors)?
how does voldemort track his enemies? (GoF, moody says voldemort has means of tracking his enemies)
what about descendents of gryffindor, Hufflepuff and ravenclaw?
how to destroy a horcrux?

chris- i think that to be in slytherin you just cant be a suib, muggle-born, or blood traitor, because snape is half-blood as well, and because he is the head of slyherin and he was also in slytherin.

im to know how wormtail is going to repay his to harry.
im also sure harry is going to need better wizards than himself to destroy voldemort, and i wonder who is going to help him.

And to Kathy, Aunt Petunia can't be a squib because her parents are muggles. it is said over and over that Lily is muggle born.

who are/were the 7 registered animagus of the century?
how does ministry know about the prophecies?
why wouldn't dumbledore tell directly to harry if he needs something to look into godric's hollow?

Uhm, I just remembered something. Sirius' mirror is in his house, right?

Well since Dumbledore's , the house is no longer unplottable. voldemort can find it. So, He might go there.
And perhaps finds the mirror. Harry has the other.... Just what I've noticed. Don't know where itll lead to at all.

Will Hermoine Voldemort and set equality for all muggle born wizards?
Is there more to Kreacher than meets the eye? Did he help Regulus get the locket Horcrux? Was he forced to drink the green liquid and that's why he's so crazy?
Why has Dumbledore left the fight when he has just got to the bottom of things?
On the US cover, there are no wands, where are they and what is Harry reaching for?
Will fawkes come to Harry's rescue one last time?
If part of Voldemort was transfered to Harry, does he share some Horcruxes with him?
Sooooo many questions! I love this site!

This post is in response to Chris from Detroit....the reason that Tom Riddle is in Slytherin even though he is not a pure blood is because he is a direct descendant of Salazar Slytherin.

I�m starting to wish I submitted more over the weekend! Everyone has such great questions.

Kathy from Austin � Petunia is not a squib, seeing as that Squibs are wizard-born Muggles, and we know Petunia parents are Muggles (makes her a Muggle-born Muggle, which is just a bit redundant.) I have a speculation from long ago that perhaps Petunia herself got a Hogwarts letter, and freaked out and rejected it, then when Lily got her letter, accepted it and was subsequently adored by their parents for her magical ability, Petunia got jealous. But this is based on nothing in cannon, so I can�t back it up at all.

But what sort of correspondence did Albus have with Petunia between leaving Harry on her doorstep and the beginning of Order of the Phoenix? What was his �last�?

As Orlando from England mentioned on page 3, I also want to know, and hopefully it be answered, what Dudley's worst memory was, what he had experienced that made him throw up after the dementor attack. There had to be a reason that Jo drew attention to Harry�s curiosity.

I've also been madly curious as to where Sirius' bike is, although I speculate Hagrid took it to meet Harry the first time (Harry hears rolling "thunder", crumbling rock, and Hagrid tells him he flew to get him, but later tells Umbridge he doesn't ride brooms); I haven't been able to pick up on where it is now.

I want to know if harry realy has a sister/brother.
Why are everybody so sure that pettigrew is goin to help harry. I�m not sure pettigrew even knows that.

And something i want to make clear: SNAPE�s EVIL! I think so because he had a bad childhood, because his parents were arguing (In the pensive in OotP).

And the only caracter I am sure about is going to is Voldemort.

I've been reading all the comments, and one thing comes to my mind. After Sirius d, and just before the End-of-term feast, harry tries to use the mirror Sirius gave him. When it didn't work, he drops it in the trunk, and it shattered into pieces... how do you think it be used again? i don't think he use a Reparo spell to fix it after getting mad with it and droping it.
