I Just Died In Your Arms

2006-06-27 - 10:35 a.m.

In Harry Potter news, J. K. Rowling has said that at least two main characters will die in the last book.

She had already written the last chapter of this final novel before she even wrote the first book, so she's known how it will all end for some time.

I've been re-reading Half-Blood Prince and I'm more convinced than ever of this: I don't think Dumbledore is dead. I think the reason why he trusts Snape so totally is because Snape was supposed to "kill" Dumbledore. I think the whole thing is a set-up, to lure Voldemort into a false sense of security.

Why do I believe this? Dumbledore gives Harry a whole recitation about the power of love. How many people at Hogwarts - and in the wizarding community at large - truly love Dumbledore? The love of Harry's mother protected Harry as a baby from Avada Kedavra. Could the powerful love of the staff and students protect Dumbledore?

I also think Draco Malfoy will get his head screwed on right and join the good guys. That may also get him killed.

And I think I know who the mysterious R.A.B. is. There are a few clues early in Half-Blood Prince.

I'm really looking forward to this last book. If you haven't fallen under the spell of this series, pick up just the first one. It's a fast read. Give yourself a couple hours and start it. You won't be able to put it down.

Then...blame me. I can take it.


If you have some extra money to spare, check out this T-shirt site.

Or send the money to me. I'm sure I can find a use for it.


Woke up to a phone call at 3:37am. Someone tried to send me a fax.

If it's one of those fax spammers, next time I will reach through the phone and do Sub-Zero's fatality from the first Mortal Kombat game.


Be seeing you.

Count your blessings, Dave. I occasionally get calls from collection agencies for some deadbeat who has used my number for over nine years as a dodge And on our other line, we sometimes get calls in the middle of the night by very strung-out sounding people looking for a motel who has the dyslexic twin of our number (xxyy instead of yyxx).
