  1. I don't really remember much but reading the last pages, and closing the book with a happy sigh. It was good. If there were unanswered questions at that time, I feel they have been answered here and there, and so I don't remember anything sticking out as unresolved.
  2. I didn't know there was a lot of dislike over the names chosen for the kids! I've no idea of why JK Rowling gave them those names. They seem fine to me. Besides, so often a given name is sort of cast in the shade by the person, and they will acquire a new name, or nickname, more fitting to them.
  3. I think he is referring to 'trouble' that is associated with Voldemort and 'Death Eaters', not to 'trouble' in general. So I think he would probably continue to want to be an Auror, or in someway involved with 'law enforcement' of a magical kind.
  4. Horcruxes are made by committing murder. They also are made with a part of the soul of the person who murders. As per the HP Lexicon "Horcruxes are some of the most evil magic items created." The Hallows were made by wizards, of their own magics. They are 3 very powerful magical objects .... "an unbeatable wand (the Elder Wand), a stone to bring the dead to life (the Resurrection Stone), and a cloak of invisibility" (per random Google search). I don't think that devoting one's life to finding any or all of them would be in the same realm of 'bad' as making Horcruxes.
  5. When I read the question, what popped into my head, for my own place of 'limbo', might be something like where T'Challa met his father, in the Djalia (google says it is "a reality that exists outside of time and space"). Harry might have come up with King's Cross Station because, in a very large way, that is when he started his wizarding journey. This is the start of a new 'life' (or an opportunity for choices of what he will do, start a new life or go back to the old one).
  6. I think Hannah has it in that the clearing was there, probably bunches of folks knew of the location, and it was fairly easy to access.
  7. I think that Harry was simply overwhelmed with what he had seen in the memories. That he came up with a bunch of conclusions based on his interpretation of what he saw. I think Dumbledore screwed up a bit, in trying to shield Harry from the fullness of what was happening. I think he should have told him more about the horcruxes, the necessity of them being destroyed, how Voldemort would be weakened by each horcrux being destroyed ..... but at the same time, I can see that he would be reluctant to tell Harry that his own interpretation of the predictions meant that Harry would be going up
  8. Thank you all so much for this fun activity. Staycation was a blast! Congratulations, Aurelia, Louis, and Lucia , for putting on a very successful event! EDIT: Thank you for the lovely Beans and Shiny Award! 😊
  9. While Dumbledore says "You know, I sometimes think we Sort too soon. …” , I think that what the Sorting Hat looks at are the personal traits of the individuals, and they tend to stay the same through a person's life, unless something drastic, momentous, happens that the person chooses to change how they are. I don't think that Snape would be Sorted into any House other than Slytherin, whether he was Sorted at age 11 or at age 15. Which doesn't answer the question ... only addressing it in another way. So, for the question, if Snape was Sorted into Gryffindor, I think the story might end
  10. So many of the places listed above sound interesting, and of course I'd want to visit the pyramids. I would, however, also want to delve back further in the history of Egypt and visit Waset, which is currently known as Thebes. It's located along the banks of the Nile River, in Upper Egypt. It's said to be a place which was the height of Egyptian civilization. Homer referred to Thebes in his Iliad "... in Egyptian Thebes the heaps of precious ingots gleam, the hundred-gated Thebes." In particular, I want to visit Luxor. It's been mentioned in so many movies and books -- especially in the Rick R
