    Of course Harry is going to die. His scar is the last Horcrux - which is HOW Harry was given Voldemort’s powers. Like Nigini, animals and humans can be made into Horcruxes without completely becoming zombees. The fact that Harry is LOVE - keeps Voldemort from liking his remainder Horcrux…but we’ve seen that he CAN use his Horcrux when Voldemort took control of him at the Ministry of Magic in Order of the Phoenix.

    wrong, voldemort also appears on the back of the 7 book cover, maybe thats a foreshadowing

    I think that an amazing ending would be for Dumbledore to come back! He uses the Horcrux to put part of his soul into something that Harry Uses or has! Seeing as how Dumbledore has great foresight! Snape had to kill Dumbledore in order for everyone to believe Snape is bad. Snape will come back to help but it will be Harry who ultimately fights Voldemort.

    hmmm…. harry could have another horcrux from voldemort as well. His wand, perhaps? if you recall, in one of the books, harry and voldemort have a big fight, and yet they can’t overpower each other for a while. maybe during this moment, voldemort was changing harry’s wand into a horcrux

    I rekon Harry Potter will die Harry is a secret Horcrux that Voldemort does not know about. He will then destroy himself thus killing Voldemort.

    that is very interesting. that would make a great ending. i think harry and voldemort both die. that snape is good. malfoy will choose the right at the end- snape saved malfoy from seeling his doom with vold. when dumbeldore begged snape to kill him (dumbeldore), he was protecting malfoy.

    people please…harry cannot be a horcrux. perhaps u guys are forgetting that one of the remaining horcruxes is IN VOLDEMORTS BODY. this entire series also follows the journey of the hero…and the hero never dies. rowling has not spent 7 books developing harry only to kill him off at the end. and no, dumbledore will not come back either…rowling will find a way to make him reappear, but the harry potter series does not bring back the dead

    well i think that harry wont die, but voldemort will, because harry cant die, hes the main character, and that would totally piss america off, well, It would piss me off, although if he were do die this how i think it would happen, maybe he thinks ron or one of his close friends are voldemorts horcuxes so he kills them but he is the remaining horcux so then after he kills his friend, he kills himself becuase he didn’t need to kill them, but then he would defeat voldemort still. But thats my opinion

    great thinking, jason. now that you’ve said it, i feel it’s so logical… and remember, the scar always burns when voldemort is in some sort of crisis, tension or pain… yeah, harry’s a dead boy, i’d say too.

    I agree that Harry is the last horcrux. He will need to die in order for Voldemort to be finished for good. I thought I was the only one who saw that, but I’m glad other people think the same thing. I guess we’ll see what happens in a few short weeks.

    i think harry n voldemort both die like georgia though i never thought of the deaths in the books from the cover point of view . very clever indeed.
    n i dont think dumbledore’s gonna come back as dumbledore himself said “nothing, absolutely nothing can bring people back from the dead” although dumbledores love for harry will make sure that voldemort realises the enormous power of LOVE n thus make his defeat ‘worse than death’ cos dumbledore says in the fifth book in the department of mysteries to voldy,’merely taking ur life wont satisfy me tom’.

    I do not believe Harry will die. There are 7 horcuxes..The ring, the diary, the locket…so there are 4 more: I think they are the sword(Griffindore), the cup(Huffinpuff), Voldermort himself, and the snake…..so Harry is not a horcux.

    i hope harry dies. that sounds bad, but i do. but he probably wont, if you think about it. say he is a horcrux, so he kills himself. voldemort still has part of his soul in him, so he wont die. and harry is the only one who can kill him, according to trelawnys prophecy. so then harrys dead and voldemorts victorious, and although it would be a funny ending, rowlings not that cruel.

    You guys are so wrong!
    Why on earth would Voldemort make Ron or Hermione horcruxes?
    Dumbledore said in the 6th book that Voldemort like the hogwarts founders prized possessions.
    My theory is that Harry will manage to kill Voldemort but the effort involved could take all of the energy etc out of him. Could be wrong of course, but some of your guesses are completely off the point.

  35. Bill on July 11th, 2007 3:37 pm

    None of you are remembering that when Voldermort tried to kill harry as a baby that that part of Voldermort was destroyed. So there are 6 pieces remaining.
    -Voldermort himself
    -the diary
    -the ring
    -the locket(which is at Number 12 Grimmauld Place because sirius’ brother is the one that destroyed it)
    then possibly
    -Nagini the Snake
    -the cup(hufflepuff)
    -the sword of gryffindoor
    -HARRY?

    I think that if he is the last horcrux he will not kill himself because he would rather live knowing this than die.

  43. julian on July 12th, 2007 1:37 am

    ok, if harry was a horcrux that would mean he’d have to die in order to kill voldemort. but if voldemorts got a piece of his own soul inside himself remaining, harry will have to die somehow 1st then someone else kill voldemort because the 7th soul in his body must be destroyed last, can you guys really see any1 else besides harry kill voldemort? rowling has been known to surprise but i still say the chances of that happening are very slim. Potter is not a horcrux folks.

  45. Katherine on July 12th, 2007 4:07 am

    i absolutly agree with Bob Sedyll i don’t think he will be killed off

    also with the sword being a horcrux… dumbledore already said that it’s not a horcrux… dumbledore said that voldemort was looking for something from each of the founders but he also said that the sword was the only thing of Gryffindors and that obviously he didn’t get that one…

    i say i have to agree with Ryan’s idea that dumbledore created a new protection when he died which who help to support the idea that snape is good and that when dumbledore was pleading to snape maybe it was because he wanted snape to kill him!!! a little of topic but o well

    Wasn’t Harry’s street that his parent’s were killed on called Godric’s Hollow, like Godric Gryffindor. So wouldn’t it make sense that whatever the Gryffindor Horcrux is that it is in their old house. It can’t be the sword, that has always been in Dumbledore’s office hasn’t it?

    I don’t think Harry’s scar is a horcrux for this simple reason. Ok…all the horcruxs have to be destroyed before Harry can kill Voldemort. So, if Harry is a horcrux and he kills himself who is going to be left to finish off Voldemort? No one because Harry is laying somewhere dead.lol. Anyhow, I hope Harry lives. I will be devastates and disappoint if Harry is killed…so lets hope for the best and I guess we will all figure out what is really going on on July 21st…book release…

    I dont think Harry is one of the Horcruxes. He took one of Voldemort’s Horcruxes away when Voldemort tried to kill him, but why should that make him one? In the 5th book, the prophecy says that one shall live while the other shall die, ( or something like that). The only way he could be a Horcrux is if he was gonna die, and i doubt that, but maybe it is. There are only 5 Horcruxes left. One of them is gone because Voldemort tried to kill Harry and the spell backfired on himself. One of them is also the diary. The rest of them are the ring that Dumbledore destroyed. One of them is the locket. The others are sword, the cup, and the snake.

    i think ur all wrong if harry was a horcrux y would voldemort want him dead? Harry was meant to be the one he killed for his last horcrux if u reread book 5 (I did)also the profecy says neither can LIVE while the other survives meaning that when voldemort dies garry can live

  71. Andrew on July 13th, 2007 9:54 pm

    How can Harry be a horcrux?
    its completely illogical
    Quirell tries to kill Harry in book 1
    ON VOLDEMORT’S ORDERS!
    why would he order him to destroy part of his soul?????
    In book 4 he uses avada kedavra on him
    again he wouldn’t want to destroy him

    Right at the beginning when Voldemort kills Lilly and James the curse backfires and Voldemort is ripped from his body. He had no physical form how could he make Harry a horcrux?
    And in there encounters when he has physical form he doesn’t do any spell that could make Harry into a Horcrux.

    And if Harry destroyed himself because “he was a horcrux” who would kill Voldemort???? Surely Harry will have a proper crack at him by the end of Deathly Hallows.

    Harry cannot possibly be a horcrux it makes no sense

    Also J.K. has said he isn’t a horcrux

  73. Whitney on July 14th, 2007 3:38 am

    I think that you are all partially right about the horcruxes. Ialso think if re-read Harry Potter and the half blood prince you will know that the horcruxes are as follows:the locket,the cup, the snake, something of ravenclaws, or something of gryffindors.
    The ones that are destroyed are as follows: The diary and the ring.
    I think that the locket is possibally destroyed. I think that some of you are right as far as RAB being regulus black. It is a high possibility. The only thing I can come up with that it was Regulus is the fact that Sirius said that voldemort killed him personally, so I think that Regulus was under the imperius curse and was told what to do with the locket and set out to do Voldemort bidding. He began to fight the curse as harry did in their 4th year. He realized what he had or just thought it looked dangerous so he transfigured a rock and made it look almost identical to the locket and then he wrote a note saying that the locket had been destroyed. He then either stole it for his own greed or he destroyed it, but if he did not then I think that all of you who said that it was the locket in Number12 Grimmauld Place. This is only a theory, I think it is a strong theory.

    I think that Harry will die and that Dumbledore will come back. Don’t you remember that Dumbledore had Griffendor’s sword in his office the entire time and before that it was in the sorting hat. That means that Voldemort will have found another horcrux. I think Dumbledore will come back because he had the sword in his office the entire time. What do you think he was doing with it? Plus, Dumbledore was bound to kill somone at some point in his life. Also, you know how Dumbledore got rid of the ring? Well that had part of a soul even if it wasn’t a nice soul, but it still was a soul so that means that Dumbledore killed somone, because it’s not the body that makes the person, it’s the soul. So i think that the sword is Dumbledore’s horcrux and that he did it so that Voldemort wouldn’t take it. I also think that Harry will die(cry). I think this because he is so modest and doesn’t think that his powers are so good. I think he is going to die because he will be a distraction for Dumbledore to kill Voldemort. I don’t know how Harry is going to find all of the horcrux’s but if my theory is correct that means that he will have Dumbledore and may be Sirius’s brother who may have gone into hiding and not have actually gotten killed by one of Voldemorts follower’s. Also, why would Voldemort make Harry a Horcrux? That would be stupid because Voldemort was trying to kill Harry in the Goblet of Fire. He wasn’t trying to save him or hold him hostage, and don’t any of you say that he wasn’t trying to kill him because when their wands “connected” the spell Voldemort was using was “Avada Kedavera” not some spell where you make an item a horcrux or some item to make hime stay still or freeze or some other thing. One more thing. We also know all of the horcrux’s out there! There is Hufflepuff’s cup, the snake, the locket, the ring, the diary, Voldemort himself, and the first Voldemort, the one who tried to kill Harry in the begining.

    havent u guyz read the 6th book. the sword of griffindor is the only thingie of griffindors that dd knew about….and dd had it in his office. its most likely NOT a horcrux…harry cood be thou.. remember i think book 1, lord voldemort gave u powers that night or something…i dunno….just a thought…. however i think that sirius might come back…whats with the veil and harry might die so it wood be hard for anyone to write another hp book. if harry dies however….ill be pissed

    The only wat to kill voldemort is to kill harry cause harry has the same powers as voldemort!!!! and it’s kind of obvious sinve the 4th movie when voldemort came back in the grave yard!!! Just to find out how voldemort can’t kill harry if he does then he kills him self!!! So who kills harry!!!!!! Even though my town is a very big fan of harry potter our mill st look like a little piece og digon alley!!!!!!! where you get your supplies for school!!!! so we call it Digon Alley!!!!!! and harry shouldn’t die though!!!!!!!

    The Horcruxes:
    .Hufflepuffs cup
    .Something of Ravenclaws
    .The Snake
    .The Locket
    .The Ring (destroyed)
    .The Diary (destroyed)
    There remians 4 horcruxes left, maybe 3. I’m not sure about the locket. Remember voldemort only created 6 becasue the seventh part of his soul in in his body. HBP.

    Every1 who thinks harry is a horcrux how can he be. Dumbledore said in HBP that he was certain that they are the 6. Voldemort couldn’t find anythin of Gryfindors becasue the sword is the only thing. I can’t remember kreacher gettting the locket but i can see why he would have it if Regulus Black is R.A.B. Well done for whoever came up with that idea

    About Harry dying. Wats to say voldemort and harry both survive, or voldemort goes back into the state he was at the start, just waiting for his nxt return. I cant wait for the book. I think one of Harrys firend are going to dye (Herminie or Ron) and then Snape will be killed by Professer Mcgonnal,

  93. Dan q on July 14th, 2007 6:33 pm

    Personally, i think that either harry is going to die with voldemort, or that harry kills voldemort, think about it, if harry was a horcrux then why would voldemort have tried to down right kill him, using avada kedavra, it would have killed off another bit of his soul had he suceeded, (granted he could always try to make another one but still). as far as what the horcuxes are, heres my opinion.

    Before i start, i think that the whole idea of harry being a horcrux is ridiculous. yes, it is true that in the sorcerers stone dumbledore said that voldemort transferred some of his powers to harry by giving him that scar, but since voldemort had been “killed’ after trying to kill harry, he couldnt have made harry into a horcrux, it wasnt like he was standing there, thinking, alrite theres a good chance im gonna die by trying to kill this little kid so lets make him into a horcrux, and then kill him anyway.. that makes no sense at all. as far as the horcruxes and where they are, heres my prediction…

    Horcruxes

    -Voldermort himself, although u cant really count him , u have to get all the horcruxes before u kill him, so for the sake of my argument, dont count him yet
    -the diary (destroyed)
    -the ring (destroyed)
    -the locket (destroyed, possibly by Regulus Black, the mysterious R.A.B.? )
    then possibly
    -Nagini the Snake
    -the cup(hufflepuff)

    that leaves two more. remember three of these are already destroyed. nagini, def. the cup, def.the last two, i honestly think could be the sorting hat (after all i think i recall reading or hearing that godric gryffindor bewitched the sorting hat to serve its current purpose, and as far as the last one goes, i have no idea, but i have a feeling it might be in Godrics Hollow. a clever secret hidden amongst the text. literally, it could mean that there is a statue of godric gryffindor in godrics hollow, and there is a HOLLOW inside to it, perhaps hiding yet another horcrux. and yes i know, people will think, why would it be there, Godrics Hollow was an all muggle town, except for lily and james potter, rest in peace. my response to that is simply: if you were in the position of having to hide seven bits of your soul around the wizarding world, where better a place than where no wizard would think to look.. a town of muggles perhaps, rest assured that they would’nt be looking for it either, for obvious lack of any knowledge on the matters of wizards. so again i say, im pretty sure that harry will live, or ive wasted a lot of time writing this

    These two are my absolute least supported possibilites of horcruxes
    -the sword of gryffindoor
    -HARRY?

    okay dumbledore himself said that there is no magical way to bring back people from the dead… therefore dumbledore will not come back but the fact that the talking portraits of prior hogwarts headmasters and mistresses implies that he can talk but only from his portrait in his old office. and harry die it would be a wicked ass ending if voldimort kills harry and evil takes over thw magical and non-magical world but that wont happen… so new theory voldy and harry will die killing each other… “niether can live while the other survives”

    I agree with some of you guys…..
    i have just noticed that harry’s scar MAY be one of the horcruxes……I have a very strong feeling that the theory is true, butnow, i dread reading the 7′th book….
    I just can’t wait…
    I also thought the same thing, that harry would kill himself because, thats also the only way to finish lv off…

    and if you would talk about the prophecy of trelawny, i remembered dumbledore saying that it wasnt the prophecy that made the prophecy true….
    voldemort started it, remember??
    he ACTUALLY caused the prophecy to come true!!!
    so i think that could change….

    i hope that in the 7th book jk rowling would actually, you knw…show what happens in the future, maybe (if harry would die) what would happen to ron and hermionie…n stuff…..wow….wouldnt that be great?

    quote:—bob sedyll: people please…harry cannot be a horcrux. perhaps u guys are forgetting that one of the remaining horcruxes is IN VOLDEMORTS BODY. this entire series also follows the journey of the hero…and the hero never dies. rowling has not spent 7 books developing harry only to kill him off at the end. and no, dumbledore will not come back either…rowling will find a way to make him reappear, but the harry potter series does not bring back the dead
    ———————————————————–i can prove many things wrong with your comment. one voldemort is NOT a horcrux, he is the remaining soul. how can you create your own soul?? now about harry dying, i am split. i do believe harry’s SCAR is a horcrux, not harry himself. know you might be thinking how could i be split, if harry is a horcrux he has to kill himself. well not exactly. isnt there a reason jk does something for a future purpose. she introduced scabbers in the first book, making him into a person that tiggers the rest of the books. i believe that harry will use dementors to extract the horcrux and destroy it that way. that is why harry is affected by dementors so strongly. he has the bad experiences of not only himself, but also the experiences of voldy. harry will use the dementors to extract the horcrux which is basically a cursed soul and will cast a patronus only on his body and let the dementor feed on his scar. then harry will kill the dementor and bam he destroyed another horcrux. now the part that confuses me. if harry’s scar is not a horcrux, then i believe he would die at the hands of either voldy or old age. but it is also possible that harry will just kill voldy and live happily ever after. but in a quote said by jk recently, she was asked, “are the adventures in the wizarding world gonna end?” she answered, “well, harry’s adventures will be over.” this can be interperated in two ways. one harry will die and harry potter is done or the adventures in the wizarding world will continue but harry is to boring to pay attention to. :P will im going now…hope u liked my theories.

    ok if one more person says harry is a horcrux im gona lose it. dont you remember in slughorns memory that there is a certain spell the murderer must say in order to encase a portion of their soul? in other words, horcruxes are made intentionally so harry cannot be a horcrux. end of discussion.

    I believe Harry will not die because Lily protected him when he was young, the scar has something important to do with Lily. Snape is defintely good, he killed Dumbledore and he knew it, he did not tell Harry because he is weak at occlumency and thus Lord Voldemort will see his intentions, so he has to die…”Severus please (do it kill me)…” I believe Snape will die at the end for the greater good… imagine Snape ‘i’ll kill the boy Avada Kedavra he swerved his wand in the direction of Voldemort at the last seocnd …boom Voldemort repels it onto Snape and Harry gets the sword of grinffindor which is probably a horcrux and stabbs Voldemort with it and both Voldemort and the sword dies like in Chamber of Secrets when he stabbs the book and Riddle dies… I also beleive Neville will beocme a teacher and kill Bellatrix Lestrange, he’ll get really angry and booom Avada Kedavra. Dumbledore won’t i belive come back to real life. and one of the Ron people shoudl die , so many of them maybe on their wedding day…

    Why would Voldemort kill his final horcrux? Isnt that “maddening the unhelpful?” I do not believe that Harry will die or that he is the final horcrux, when would voldemort put his soul into Harry and why would he considering he thought that he was going to die anyway?! I think the ‘Harry is a horcrux’ theory is one of the most absurd I have ever read! I also think that either Mr. Weasley or Percy will die, however I do not consider Percy a ‘major character’ so that leaves to more options and if Hagrid dies all of my favourite characters are dead.

    I think i gotta theory…maybe harry was a hocrux, so voldemort had to use harry’s blood to resseruct himself in book 4. Maybe that’s why dumbledore looked triumphant in the fourth book when he found out voldemort had done that, because harry is no longer a hocrux as voldemort had already used harry to revive himself.

    Harry is a horcrux. The Harry-horcrus theory explains too much. But he won’t die. Several reasons:

    1. In general - don’t put too much store by prophecy. A major themes is that actions overwhelm prophecy.

    2. It’s usually poor and risky writing to kill off the hero. While lovers of tradgedy and lovers of Christian allegory pine for death, the rest of the public do not.

    3. The gleam of triumph in Dumbledore’s eyes as he discovers that Voldemort uses Harry’s blood in restoration. My suspicion is that this foohardy act to protect himself from immediate threat by Voldemort saves Harry. If there’s a sacrifice, and there’s likely to be one, it’s that Harry becomes far less powerful… ordinary, perhaps. And that’s alright. That’s a heroic story, a thoroughly modern heroic story of the hero dropping his powers upon completing the task. This is opposed to the thoroughly midieval theory advocated above.

    I think that Harry and Voldemort will kill each other. Because J.K. Rowling mentions that there are clues in the first two books and in the first book, Firenze said that he thought Harry will die because it was written in the stars (thats why he saved him) but Firenze just prevented it from happening then. Plus it would suck if Voldemort didn’t die also.

    I think the theory about the Horcrux being Harry’s scar is very valid and interesting. However, the constant struggle in Harry has been coping with his likenesses with Voldemort. It bothers him that he could be so much like someone so evil. I think the end of the book will come to Harry exploring himself and finding the good within and defeating Voldemort by binding the evil within him and embracing the good.

    harry is not a Fukin Horcrux

    Aaaaaaargggggghhhhhh

    Who came up with that theory cos they shud be shot

    Voldemort had 5 horcruxes and was planning to use harrys death as his final horcrux, ultimatly what he thought was going to be his last and most important one, (Killing the prophecy with Harry), if that makes sense. However when the curse reflected voldemort had only made 5 horcruxes. Then at the Start of GOF he killed that guy in the Tom riddle snr’s old house. Using that death he turnt his snake into his 6th and last horcrx, completing his goal of splitting his soul into seven pieces. I am not certaain of wat the 6 horcruxes are but can take estimated guesses, i believe they are

    1) the diary (destroyed)
    2) the ring (destroyed)
    3) the locket (possibly at grimauld place)
    4) Hufflepuffs cup
    5) Possibly something of Ravenclaws (given that ravenclaw takes the intelligent maybe a book)
    6) The snake

    7) of course the seventh piece of voldemorts soul is in his own body and is the last piece harry has to destroy

    ooook So within the past 3 days i just reread books 5 and 6, and i’m pretty sure that harry is not a horcrux. It just would not make sense, since horcruxes have to be made intentionally by a spell. They have a connection that is obviously going to be very important, but it is not because harry is a horcrux. Also Dumbledore is dead. He’s not coming back to life. Maybe he’ll become a ghost at hogwarts though. Rememeber when Harry asked Nearly Headless Nick about Sirius…forshadowing??? Will Harry die? maybe, who knows. If it was that easy to predict it would be boring. The book is going to be soooo good. I’M SO PUMPED.

    book 6 dumbledoor says something about how voldemort wanted to make a last horcrux by killing someone of meaning (harry) well he obviously wasnt able to do that, his spell backfired the spell obviously would have killed him if it wasnt for the previous horocrux’s he had made therefore using one and now there are 4 horcrux’s in an object if jk rowling intended for What dumbledoor to have said to be completely accurate then:
    1)Unknown that was used up from trying to kill harry
    2)Diary- Destroyed
    3)Ring-Destroyed
    4)Locket- Destroyed
    5)Unknown
    6)himself

    AAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Harry is NOT a horcrux

    who ever came up with that theory shud be shot

    When voldemort went to kill harry he had already created 5 of his horcruxes because he was going to use harys death to create his final horcrux because it would have been his most important one that symbolizes the fact that he could not die. However, when his killing curse was reflected he couldn’t of used harrys death to split his soul into the seventh piece because he didn’t kill harry. Then at the start of Goblet of Fire, Voldemort killed the house keeper at tom riddles snr’s old house. He then used that death to transform his snake into the 6th horcrux that he craved, Hence satisfying his need to split is soul into the seven pieces. Nobody can be certain what the horcruxes are but from everything in HPB i can take educated guesses about where the seven pieces of his soul lie.

    1)The diary (destroyed)
    2)The Ring (destroyed)
    3)The Locket (possibly at Grimauld place)
    4)Hufflepuffs cup (whereabouts unknown)
    5)Ravenclaws object (because ravenclaw accepts the intelligent i believe he got a book of hers or something that symbolizes here intelligence)
    6)The Snake (always with voldemort)

    7)Voldemort (obviously the last piece of his soul is in his body and must be killed/destroyed last)

    Therefore voldemort could not have created harry as a horcrux. And one last thing, creating a horcrux is an extremly powerful and complex piece of dark magic that i am sure can not just be created by accident. If that was the case voldemort could have pieces of his soul in rocks and any ordinary object.

    Dumbledore could become a horcrux, as he had drunk the water over the locket in the cave. And that could be the reason that he wanted Snape to kill him.

  139. OMG! on July 18th, 2007 11:23 am

    Ok right ive just had an idea where the remaining horcruxes may be given that they are the ones i just said.

    1)The diary (destroyed)
    2)The ring (destroyed)
    3)The Locket (GRimauld place)
    4)Hufflepuffs cup (Godrics hollow)
    5)Ravenclaws (Albania)
    6)Snake (with voldemort)
    7)Voldemort (with voldemort)

    Now i’m just speculating here becasue i usaully hace the facts about what i’m sayin. The problem with godrics hollow to me is that voldemort would of had to place the horcrux there after he regained power of else Hagrid would have recognised one of the historical objects when he rescued harry. However becasue Godrics hollow has a significant meaning to voldemort i feel he could have placed one there (its better than another one to his death eaters)

    Through the books I’ve been looking for places where voldemort has been and that mean something to him. At first i thought Tom riddle snr’s house but i dismissed this idea myself becasue it is close to the Gaunt and dumbledore said he recognizes Voldemorts magic. Dumbledore would have noticed if there was something magical about that house when he was close to it. Then i thought the orphanage but a horcrux could be easily recognized and destroyed there, plus dumbledore visited there i think to meet that women and get the memory about the cave. Therefore it only leaves me with this other option, Albania. He spent 11 years there after his killing curse was reflected so it has some significance to him. Plus this the only other place i can remember where voldemort has bin during his lifetime.

    Does anybody else know if the horcruxes could be in any other place. Please say what u think about my theory please.

  141. kirsty on July 18th, 2007 11:43 am

    my theory is that maybe harrys eyes are a horocrux. or mayb a horocrux of harrys mum, lily? cos they knew bout voldemort and the killings? and i think harry will die but not by voldemort, i think harry kills voldemort and then snape or malfoy or malfoys mother will kill harry. i personally think that both voldemort n harry both die because it is the final book and to stop people gaining copyright to make more books ( i think this happened with agatha christies- poirot- but i may be wrong.) i think that with each book being darker than the other i dont really think that at the end it will be a happy ending cos it just doesnt make sense to me. n i dont think dumbledore will come back cos that isnt logical n apparently he cant come back. as for the horocruxs i think harrys eyes r a horocrux as i said at the beginning, the diary (destroyed), the ring (destroyed), the cup of hufflepuff, something of ravenclaw, the locket of sylerthein- which mite be the locket that harry found in 12 grimmauld place- apparently it wouldnt open, and the 7th voldemort himself. i dont think voldemort was able to get hold of something of gyffindor cos the only thing we kno bout is the sword which is in dumbledores office and in 1 of the memories tom riddle (voldemort) wanted a job at hogwarts but dumbledore said no, maybe that was how he was going to get the sword if he got the job. i personally think the answers are in the previous 6 books but we are just passing them without knowing. like little subtle clues could be a name or a place or something, and we are thinkin of these big thoeries it mite be a straight forward conclusion. just had a thought mayb harrys scar was left by lily to warn him about voldemort mayb she knew she was goin 2 die so she left him the scar as warning. or it mite be a horocrux of lily and james so that he is protected with love wen he has to face voldemort. also if harrys eyes arent a horocrux who says that gyffindor left 1 thing is it possible that the house leaders left more than 1 thing each but most people only know bout the sword, cup etc. also lookin at cheetahs theory it a little far fethched but it doesnt seem impossible. most people say that harry potter cant die cos hes the hero and all that however, i think he does, but i av a theory kinda mayb harry was never meant to kill voldemort cos isnt there something in the prophency about neville mayb he is meant to kill him or mayb neville is a horocrux instead of harry. so mayb neville and voldemort die or maybe harry and neville both die and voldemort lives cos he is a powerful dark wizard u cant deny that so mayb over the years both harry and voldemort grow and so does there magic but mayb harry loses his self confidence wen in the final battle with voldemort and nevilles with him and tries to finish voldemort off but gets himself killed. i av no evidence to back any of these theories just some thoughts goin around in my head and also from wat ive read and addin bits on. i kno its a bit of a jumble so sorry its not very structured.

    I think that Dumbledore did create his OWN horcrux before dying to elude Voldemort. Then he will tell Hagrid to use the sword to resurred him. To create a horcrux, someone has to kill someone. The act of killing tears apart the soul. Then, the special spell is recited which transfers a porion of the soul into an object. I think Dumbledore said in the “Half Blood Prince” that Voldemort only chose “honerable” items to be his horcruxes. (what makes Harry honerable at birth). Also, to contradict, to make a horcrux, a person would need to be killed on the spot. So if the sword of Gryffindor was in their ous atthe time, the death of James and Lily Potter would be more than enough.

    {Besides}:
    1. In the “Prisoner of Azkaban”, didn’t Sirius say that Wormtail killed Harry’s parents?
    2. Voldemort survived after killing James and Lily, proof: (in the Goblet of Fire, Voldemort’s living body was placed in the cauldren. That night, Voldemort did not die, he was just reduced to a weakened state)
    3. Stop talking about Harry being a Horcrux because J.K. Rowling ALREADY said it.
    4. Maybe Harry’s eyes are the Horcrux.
    5. I also say that Cheetah’s idea of the dementors is logical.
    6. And I DEFINITELY think that the title: “HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HOLLOWS” is foreshadowing something drastic in the novel.

(gasp) i mean, if u think about it, who was in charge of getting all the “bad guys” into the castle in book six? who was ordered to kill DD??? i say that draco is the last horcrux and that harry gets to kill him (giggle). that would make him very satisfied wouldn’t it? harry’s not a horcrux.

    I hope that harry wont die, cuz he is the main character, and if he does die, it would be saying that evil prevails, but the main idea of the book is that love conquors all:) & good guys always win.(hopefully)

    The horcruxes are:
    Slytherin’s locket(possibly destroyed)
    Hufflepuff’s cup
    Slytherin’s ring(destroyed)
    Tom riddle’s diary(destroyed)
    nagini
    something of ravenclaws
    and the piece of soul that is still in voldemort

    ***but there is a possibility that there only 6 horcruxes in total, cuz dumbledore said to harry that voldemort waz saving the last 7th horcrux for when he killed harry, cuz he only makes horcruxes after he has killed someone of significant importance.

    Harry Ron and Hermoine don’t die. Ron and hermoine get married and Harry marries Ginny. Also people who think Harry is a horcrux are absolutely riduculous, use your head, logic points against it. Voldemort is the 7th part that has to get killed last, Harry would have to kill himself first then voldemort which is impossible. The other six parts of voldemorts soul are the diary(destroyed), the ring(destroyed), the locket(possibly destroyed by regulas Black(R.A.B.)), Hufflepuffs Cup, The Snake Nagina, and something of Gryffindors or Ravenclaws.

    I also heard something about 3 magical artifacts called the HALLOWS, and whoever has all 3 being a master of Death, and that Harry has an emotional conflict on whether to pursue the horcruxes like Dumbledore said or track down the Hallows. Thus the title HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS. This is a new theory so tell me what you think.

    i hope harry doesnt die, but its very possible he does… if his scar is a horcrux, then by killing himself he would leave only voldemort left, and then NEVILLE would be the “chosen one” from the prophecy that would finish off voldemort.

    also remember that there wasnt anything from griffindor besides the sword that dumbledore already determined as not being a horcrux… harrys in griffindor house isnt he?

    then again… voldemort wouldnt really want to kill harry if there was part of his soul in him… but the have the same wand and some of voldemorts powers were passed to harry.

    I agree with Cheesecake. The Lilly theory fits completely. She would be Gryffindor’s descendent since she lives in Godric’s Hallow, which was passed down to her from Godric Gryffindor. Since Voldemort couldn’t get the sword to be his Horcrux he would then make Lilly the horcrux. That’s why he hesitated before killing her. I also think that maybe the whole green flashing thing that happened to Harry when his parents died shows that the Horcrux maybe passed onto him (or his eyes, specifically) after Lilly died. This also makes sense as to the clues JK Rowling gave us, saying that Lilly and Harry’s eyes were very important in this book, and that Harry himself wasn’t a Horcrux (but she never said anything about his eyes!)

    OK, my theory:

    Harry is a horcrux but Voldemort does not know it and did not deliberately intend him to be/create him as one. In the last book we learned how the soul becomes incredibly unstable when creating a horcrux and therefore when Voldermort tried to kill Harry (at this point he had aleady created 6 horcruxes so very unstable) as a baby and failed, a piece of his soul was ripped and entered Harry - this would also partly explain the strong connection they have and some of Harry’s Slytherin like abilities (eg Parstletongue).

    Now, on to the destroying Harry bit. I completely agree that Harry cannot ultimately die - you cannot kill the hero! However, he will have to die and come back or get close to death for Voldermort’s soul to be ripped from his. Somebody touched on this earlier and I think it is key - Voldermort recreated himself with Harry’s blood. He therefore formed an incredibly strong bond - they are made of the same blood. This could then mean Harry could come back from death/close to death and finish the job off.

    As for the other Horcruxes:

    1 - nagini
    2 - locket (but not destroyed - agree with earlier comment that it is in 12 Grimauld Place)
    3 - diary
    4 - cup
    5 - something ravenclaw
    6 - ring

    Harry ultimately will kill Voldermort, marry Ginny and have kids. Ron and Hermione will do the same (I’ve heard that the last chapter is an epilogue so reckon we will see this later).

    I also think that Snape is good but we won’t realise until the very end after JK has had fun convincing us that he is really bad!

    I think between us all we will have it right anyway! (lol)

    In GoF when Harry gets back from the graveyard, there is a part when harry tell dumbldore that voldemort can touch him now, ” Harry thought he saw a gleam of something like triumph in Dumbledores eyes”
    This quote has bothered me for a very long time… why would dumbledore feel/look triumphant now that Voledmort can touch harry now? i cant imagine Dumbledore being bad, if anyone has a theory on this plz email me!!!! at [email protected]
    thanks and OMG the book is released tomorrow!!!!!

    I agree with Matthew. Harry was a horcrux, but stops being one when Voldy uses his blood to revive himself. The part of voldy’s soul residing in harry goes back to voldy, and so now 2 parts of the soul are in voldy’s body. Sword of griffindor could not be a horcrux as it was always in D’s office, and there was no way Voldy could have access to it to make it a horcrux. Also, doesn’t make sense why voldy would put a part of soul so near D, who was not only his arch enemy, but was the only wizard Voldy was afraid of.

    how are the vast majority of you so idiotic? rowling said that harry was not a horcrux. therefore he isn’t. and as it’s either harry or voldemort who live, it has to be harry to kill voldemort. a) he’s the only wizard capable of doing it as mentioned in one of the earlier books. b) if harry were to die and voldemort to live it would be a huge anti-climax. just like the rumour of harry waking up and it all being a dream.
    ron and hermione get together.
    voldemort dies.
    harry destroys the horcruxes.
    snape is good and he dies saving harry where voldemort is consequently killed. somebody sacrificing themself for another is beyond voldemort. and it is as said in the fourth (i think) ‘old magic’ just to spare themself, as james, dumbledore and more importantly lily did for harry.
    so once again stop saying he’s a horcrux because rowling said he isnt!!

    Harry is not a horcrux. Not only has J.K. said that Harry is not a horcrux, it makes no sense. If a person wants to create a horcrux they have to say a certain spell after they have murdered. A person doesn’t just accidentally rip apart their soul. Voldemort went to kill Harry and only said Avada Kedvra. Nothing else.

    Just to harp on some more, I think J.K. Rowling knows what she is talking about considering she did write the books. If she says Harry isn’t a horcrux then he’s not. She said Dumbledore is dead so he is DEAD.

    I think Voldemort will die, I dont think Harry will die, the previous books and the prophecy says one will kill the other. So one of them should be alive. Or it can be in this way, first Voldemort kills Harry(or harry sacrifices his life) then someone else will kill Voldemort.
    But there is a small doubt, if Harry is one of the Horcrux then Voldemort will not kill Harry, since if Harry is a horcrux and if he dies then Voldemort will also die, right.
    I dont know why but I think Ron will die, to save Harry’s life. I also feel that Sirius Black is going to come back.

    there is no way that harry is the last horcrux, first of all why would voldemort risk that and try killing him in all 6 books so far.also, voldemort would never store part of his soul in something that has the probability of dying, because that is what he is trying to prevent in the first place, by making all the horcruxes. it is obviously voldemorts biggest fear…mortality. why would he store his soul in another human being, if it had the chance to die?

    there’s nooooo way harry is the last one

    also, everyone needs to stop assuming that dumbledore will magically come back. (no pun intended)
    from what I remember there is no way to bring back the dead using magic, and why would rowling want to bring him back?
    I mean they can still talk to him,can’t they, through the portraits and stuff?

    It says that Harry will be the reason for the downfall of Lord Voldemort, but never said that Harry will kill Voldemort. That mean Harry may or may not kill Voldemort, that doesn’t matter, what matters is how is Harry responsible for Voldemort’s downfall, right. However the book is going to release today, so is the mystery.

    I think Lord Voldemort tricks Ron and the girl into thinking that Harry is Lord Voldemort using advanced brain manipulation techniques that he learnt from Snape when he was at Hogwarts in 1927. I think the book involves suspense as Ron and the girl plot to kill Harry for his own good but occasionally get caught in two minds, because Harry is well nice to them and like gives them food and stuff from his tuck box. In the end Ron batters harry like a fried fish with his wand stick and then Harry dies.

    Then Hagrid uses the glass thing to go back in time and changes history using his powerful frame, he stops Headmaster man dying and Headmaster man stops Harry dying by killing Ron and the Girl using but his bare hands because he doesnt want to use magic to kill students because its hypocritical because it is.

    Can’t you see people? Dumbledore is the crook. Blaitantly. It’s the biggest hoodwinking in Bloomsbury history. Dumbledore will come back and fight against Voldemort and Harry. Dumbledore will kill Ron and Hermione and that sour faced whore McGonnagal

    OMG jk as just said today that dumbledore has gone! he is not comin back at all n that is it! n there is no way harry is a horcrux, and there is no way that dumbledore is bad as y wuld he tell harry to destroy all the horcruxes? there is defo sumert funni about harrys eyes.. but i dont think lilly is a horcrux eiva as the fact that shes dead so wot are u lot talkin about!! i think that snape will have a big twist in it as i fink he will atcully turn up to help harry.. and in the 3rd book dumbledore said that harry will one day be glad he saved wormtails life.. i thing this will also have something to do with it.. and wormtail dies in a atempt to help harry.. but every1 shut up about harry bein a horcrux, der is no way he is!! cant wait till 2mora !!

    Oh my God, I can’t wait to get the book in my hands and absolutely devour it! It will be soooooo tempting to look at the back page! I really hope Harry, Ron and Hermione don’t die and I would be devastated if Hagrid dies. What will we do with ourselves when it’s all over?

    Everyone thinks they both have to die in order for voldemort to be destroyed, but thats not what the prophecy said niether can live while the other survives, so Harry can live and voldemort can die and the prophecy would still be complete

    Harry has to die because JK Rowling said she doesn’t want any 1 else copying the series, so she will kill a main charecter. If she kills Ron,someone could continue it, Hermione the same thing but if she kills Harry and Voldemort, probobly no one will continue the series cause there’s no point! That’s what i think. The last horcrux is maybe something to do with harry that will afect him in a big way…maybe his scar or his wand or something.

    i think that voldemort kills harry, but the connection between them means harry can come back, and as he was the last horcrux (except NAGINI) voldemort will die for good if he gets killed. Also, i think harry will not kill him.

    ha this theory is bull. allthough harry might die and probably will considering that JKR has a new bad habbit of killing off some pretty involved and loved characters. however i dont think that the cover has anything to do with that. anyways if he does die theyll be a catch or something, like, that voldemort will irreversibly loose his powers, or die as well. becuse otherwise the ending to one of the best series, in my opinion, ever written will be very dissapointin, bleak and to sum it up not good at all.

    i think harry was made a horcrux accidentally. i think part of voldermorts soul went into the only thing that was still alive so harry will die but some how come back to life to kill the dark lord
