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?

Great posts,

Why did Dumby not summon help before heading to the Castle?
Why did he go to the tower where the mark was? Instead of a regular door.
Where did Dumby's wand go after he d?
Dumbledore states that he can hide someone - who has he hidden in the past? RAB, Vance?
I think RAB has the flying motorbike.

chris from detroit - the reason why tom riddle was put in slytherin was because he is a decendant of Salazar Slytherin.

also has anyone elsed noticed that the way Tom Riddle and Draco Malfoy were put into slytherin are almost indentical - both were immediately put in slytherin the moment the sorting hat touched their head - could this have some importance or be a connection between Voldemort and Malfoy? (maybe distantly related?)

to every on wondering about why hermione dosent like to spend time with her parents and instead of going skiing, she lied to them about stu and went to grimmauld place. when i first read ootp when i was 12 and as a child i thought that jk only did that because children like to stay together and like the caracters in a book of film to stay together not because she didnt want to be with her parents, not every part of the book has to have a meaning behind them and this is a childrens book so i think thats why.

To Monkeeshrines: Maybe the bike is roaming the forest with the Ford Anglia? Maybe we'll see some baby tricycles zooming round the forest. LOL, that'd be great.

There's a few things I wanted to clear up, people keep asking about the mirror, but Harry clearly smashed it at the end of Book 5. The other one wouldn't be of much use without being paired to a new one. Who knows how this works.

Someone also said the light-put-outer doesn't show up again, but Moody used it at the beginning of Book 5.

JKR left me in deep thought after saying that a character would preform magic vary late in life under a "desperate situation" I've been woundering who that could be! It just as well could be Dudley. But...

Swati from India,
About the descendants of the founders, I think I have found another one apart from you-know-who. Hepzibah Smith was a descendant of Hufflepuff's (or so she says), but don't we know someone that shares her last name? He's a member of Dumbledore's Army, Zacharias Smith, it might be just a coincidence though.

The Forbidden Forest is a huge unknown. I would love to read more about it and its secrets.
The night of the attack on the Potters, what happened in all the time that elapsed between the attack and when Hagrid delivered Harry to Privet Drive.
My biggest desire is to finally understand the prophecy.

To This is Sadness.
I think is very likely too. that dudley do magic. it would be so ironic.

Where are Harry's grandparents? He saw alot of people from his family in the Mirror of Erised. They cant all be . Can they?

Amanda S�dergren from Malm�, Sweden -- If Snape is evil, why did the polyjuice moody see Snape in his foe glass? polyjuice moody is a eater, snape has to be their ( eaters) enemy.

Also, do you think it's possible that Harry has a sibling? Maybe that was in the house the night LV came, but Harry's parents hid under the invisibility cloak. Theres the whole thing with Hermione and her "parents." Maybe they arent her real parents and she knows, and shes Harry's sister. That might be why there was never any "tension" between Harry and Hermione, cause looking back it would have been awkward.

wow yeah i have to say i love this site.... it really has kept me busy while i wait and i'm not a patient person.

well i have like a millon questions i know JKR probably won't answer all of them as she would be writting forever.

First about Snape...
* Is he good or evil? (Good I hope)
* What was his connection with Lily?
* Will he have to sacrifice himself for Harry?
* Did he leave something else at the school that help Harry?
* What was his disscussion with Dumbledore really about?
* Why did Dumbledore trust him so much?
* Who was laughing at him in his memory?

ummm lets see....
* Will wormtail ever repay his to Harry?
* Why is Lily so important?
* Where did Lily and James work?
* What aren't we being told about Petunia?
* Why was the Potters's house in runes when Hagrid went to get Harry?
* How did hagrid find Harry if there was a fidelus charm on him and the house?
* Where is Sirius' bike?
* What other letters did Dumbledore send?
* Why did Dumbledore have James' cloak?
* What did Dudley see when attacked?
* Is Dudley a wizard?
* How do you make a horcrux? (is there a spell or something)
* How do you destroy one?
* Did Voldemort use a horcrux to come back?
* Why did Dumbledore have a gleam in his eye?
* Does Dumbledore have family other than his brother?
* What exactly is worst than ?
* Why did Dumbledore pull some of his memories from a vial?
*Where is Fawkes?
*What did Dumbledore see when drinking the potion?

There are tons more that i can't think of right now. But my biggest question is WILL HARRY LIVE? I hope so. I guess i have another 25 days till i find out... i think i'm gonna pray everyday that he lives.

I wonder what the significance of Harry's eyes be. They always seem to mention that he "Looks exactly like James, but has Lily's eyes". And why did Voldermort tell Lily that she shan't have d? Does he not abhor all "Mudbloods"? And what about Harry's feelings for Ginny? Does Voldermort not play on one's emotions and not the relationship they have?

Dumbledore always mentions it to voldemort that there are worst things than and that voldy is wrong that he considers as ultimate defeat!
Now what does than exactly mean? what can be worst than except demeantors sucking your soul?
Also i am curious about if snape ever loved lily!
And yes kudos to the person who said about james family background, i wonder how i never noticed that, actually james background was never mentioned!
