The questions J.K. wouldn't answer

J.K. Rowling participated in a live chat with school children this morning to celebrate World Book Day. In the course of this chat she gave some very interesting information about the future of Harry Potter books, but possibly the most interesting answers she gave were to the questions she refused to answer, because it lets us know these things will be really important in the books to come.

Here are the questions and answers from the chat in which J.K. gave non-answer answers:

hermione 3: ¿will Harry and Hermione will be together?*sight*

JKR: lol Not saying... but you've had enough clues by now, surely?!

Rita: Whatever happend to Sirius' flying motorbike?

JKR: Ah, good question. You'll find out, but the real sleuths among you might be able to guess.

Kelpie_8: Will the two way mirror Sirius gave Harry ever show up again?

JKR: Ooooo good question. There's your answer.

SiriuslyLovinSirius: If we ever see Sirius again, what form will he be in?

JKR: I couldn't possibly answer that for fear of incriminating myself.

Cathedral: Don't want to rune the ending, but will we be finding out more about the significance of the shape of Harry's scar in future books?

JKR: The shape is not the most significant aspect of that scar, and that's all I'm going to say!

Josh from Cottenham Village College: Right at the beginning, when Voldermort tried to kill Harry, how did Voldermort and Harry both survive?

JKR: That is the crucial and central question and if I answered it there would be hardly any point writing books six and seven... so I won't!

Amy: What did Dudley see when he faced the Dementors in book five?

JKR: Ah, good question. You'll find out!

renata: What happened between hermiona and viktor krum during the summer?

JKR: Ron would like to know that, too.

Debbie: What will Ron's job be when he leaves school?

JKR: Well, assuming he lives to leave school... I'm not going to tell you :)

Sussie: Does Harry's eyecolour become important in the future books, like we've heard?

JKR: No comment!

pablo: If Harry dies in the ending of the books, will Voldemort be invincible?

JKR: Pablo, I can't possibly answer. You'll have to read book seven!

Catheldral school: Will wormtail ever pay harry back?

JKR: You'll see... keep reading!

HarriFreak: Who is the 'one that never will return' deatheater?

JKR: You have to work it out, but a lot of fansites have got it right.

Andrews: Does Voldemort die in the last book?

JKR: Now, do you really really think I'd answer that?!
