How to enter: A group will spend the next 3 months in a Harrython, over analyzing and focusing on one topic that better helps them to find reasons/meanings/theories about what is to come in Harry Potter Book 7.

Now that you have all had a chance to obtain the 4th movie Goblet of Fire,

when are you expected to get it? have you at least seen it?

Mon, Mar. 27th, 2006 01:46 pm (UTC)

The DVD is actually (finally!) being released here tomorrow, but it totally sucks that we have to wait so much longer. We got the film in cinemas a month after the US too. So remaining spoiler-free is impossible. :~(

wolfsbaine: RE:Question

Mary is this the thing scarhead101 and I wanted to do about the Horcruxes or is this something else?

scarhead101: Re: Question

I think it is the same thing.

Should we could be house Lupilack? or Blacupin? Our mascot can be a black wolf. Our topic Horcruxes. I've got no ideas for a hypothesis, other than Harry was a horcrux but is no longer one.

wolfsbaine: Re: Question

I love the black wolf. Not sure of the names, just because they don't trip of your tongue. Could call the house Blackwolf to match the masgot, or Blackmoon, Siriusmoon or Blacklupine, (I know there is a Blue Lupine which is a flower that can be posinous.)which of course is Blackwolf again.

As to the hypothesis as I am not yet convinced that Harry isn't a horcrux. What was it DD said, its not a good idea to put a horcrux into something that has a mind of its own or words to that effect. Would that make a hypothesis, In that it could be a good idea to put a Horcrux into something that has a mind of its own, if you could then influence and guide that mind or if you didn't intend it to be one in the first place.

Better go and read, it will take me all my time to read the books.

I have a question, I'd like to do Horcruxes but if they are taking the "Harry is a Horcrux" stance then I'd like to disprove that idea (no offense). Can that be done?

okay that would be cool
