What do you guys think about these?
- It’s been theorised that Harry hallucinated the entire series. He was deprived of food by his aunt and uncle and was starving in the cupboard under the stairs, hence the hallucinations. Steve Kloves, a screenwriter for the films, has even said about Harry being in the cupboard, “The point was that he seemed slightly mad… so when Hagrid appeared, you thought he was out of his imagination for a minute.” Rowling then responded to this with, “I think that’s a fabulous point and that speaks so perfectly to the books. Because I’ve heard it suggested to me more than once, that Harry actually did go mad in the cupboard and that everything that happened subsequently was some sort of fantasy life he developed to save himself”
- There is a website that’s been made purely to prove that Draco is a werewolf. Ideas/evidence to support this claim is that:
– Snape and Malfoy are close because Malfoy is getting Wolfsbane potion from Snape
– In book 6 when Harry is hiding Borgin and Burkes Draco threatens Borgin and then shows him something on his arm. Harry thinks that what Draco has on his arm must be a Dark Mark, but Draco is not a Death Eater
– An ongoing arc in book 6 is also that Draco is kind of sick and definitely stressed out
– Fenrir Greyback is a character who specifically punishes people who’ve messed up by biting their children. And Lucius did stuff up what Voldemort wanted him to do…
– Voldemort also makes a comment to Draco that he could ‘babysit the cubs’ after they find out that Lupin and Tonks are having a baby
- People often wonder if perhaps Rita Skeeter actually fled the wizarding world after the Battle of Hogwarts. And then here in the muggle world what is she wanted to keep writing, but under a pseudonym? What is she wanted to write about the wizarding world that she was rejected from? Perhaps even a 7 book series?
- This theory from Tumblr user harryjxmespotter suggests that Snape, Voldemort and Harry are the three brothers. Meaning that Dumbledore is Death. Dumbledore greeted Harry at King’s Cross Station and was also the one behind Snape and Voldemort’s death… Voldemort is the oldest brother, murdered by someone who sought the Elder Wand. Snape is the middle brother who committed suicide after resurrecting the girl he had once hoped to marry. And Harry is the youngest brother who escapes Death with an invisibility cloak until he gives it to his son (like how James leaves Harry the cloak, which is given to him by Dumbledore) and then greets Death ‘as an old friend’
- Rowling has revealed that there about 1000 students that attend Hogwarts. This means that there have to be about 35 students in each house year. But there only seems to be 10 Gryffindors in Harry’s year… People have questioned whether this is an oversight made by Rowling, is there are just other students wondering about their own business that don’t need to ever be named, or maybe there’s another reason? Tumblr user marauders4evr writes, “What if there were less students in the Hogwarts Class of 1998 because the period when the other kids would have been conceived (1979-1981) was when Voldemort’s reign of power was at its peak? Between the dozens of adults who joined the Order, the dozens of civilians who were killed in Death Eater raids, and the dozens of adults that didn’t want to bring a child into the world, just then. It’s actually entirely possible that there was a baby drought for a few years in the wizarding world, leading to a smaller class size a decade later. While intriguing and logically plausible, Rowling most likely didn’t think this one all the way through”
