Pre-read HP predictions
The Marquis has now read Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and I can read it next. :-) The Fionavar Tapestry will be briefly put on hold in the meantime.

I haven't read my flist in a few days now, because those of you who have read it already have probably commented. It's not that I mind spoilers, but I did want to record my guesses as to what will happen here *before* I read the book.

1. Snape is the Half-Blood Prince.
2. Dumbledore will die.
3. Harry will get a girl-friend - probably Ginny.
4. And then probably dump her in some heroic nonsense of the type that got Sirius killed.
5. Ron and Hermione will continue to bicker, but not *quite* get around to 'going out' with each other.

Other things I have less precise predictions for... so we'll see how it pans out. :-)

N.B. The Marquis has already responded to some of my predictions yesterday, when I talked to him about the book. But the predictions *do* predate any studying off the book.

*bites tongue*

*claps hand over mouth*

"Mustn't... say... anything... about... predictions... list."

*bites tongue again*

Agh! Keeping secrets is so hard...


I'm not saying anything either ;-)

Just letting you know that my journal's totally free of spoilers as I'm not a Harry Potter fan! At some stage, I may put CF's reactions to the latest book up (when he's finished reading it!) in case other fans are interested in a 15-year-old's point of view, but that won't be for a while yet. I'm currently writing about overcoming my anxieties at travelling on the tube in central London for the first time since the bombings.

Will take a look imminently! And thanks for the comment. :-)

*Hugs* re the tube-worries.

oops... it would help if I logged in before replying to comments...

Ah well, Ben got to it first anbd read it over the weekend, so I've only just started it (don't get that much time for reading). Not got near anything like an answer to any of those predictions by chapter 2, anyway! (I'd always put comments behind a spoiler screen anyway).

Having been careful to check that you have now in fact finished the book, may I congratulate you on the astonishing accuracy of your predictions. I had 2 and 3 down pre-book, but no more than that.

Why thank you! They were the result of a lot of percolating and idle wondering combined with a bit of what I might do as a story-teller. ;-) Well, if I was writing a story that good...

I will wait a while for new percolation and speculation before trying to make predictions for HP7. :-D
