And already, with the more. - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
And already, with the more.
Well, she could utterly surprise us, but doesn't it seem exceedingly unmysterious who R.A.B. was? And that Harry owns 12GP, where a Horcrux might well show up? Mayhap in a silver goblet or a portrait frame? Or something shared between brothers?

Just a random thought.

While cleaning #12 in OotP, they found "a heavy locket that none of them could open".

AAAGH. I totally forgot about that.

Here's hoping they saved some of the things Kreacher was hording, rather than just tossing them in a handy dump where Voldie could find them!

Aigh! I was trying to remember if we'd seen a locket!

And Kreacher belongs to Harry now, who may or may not help him find anything.

I guess we'll know where Harry will end up after the requisite visit to the Dursleys next summer.

And then Mundungus nicking stuff from Grimmauld Place -- undoubtedly one of the Horcruxes was in his suitcase when Harry accosted him in Hogsmeade. It's the only reason I can see for that particular subplot.

Yes, I felt that was pretty transparent too.

I'd like a future time turner so I can go forward and read book 7, now.

And I loved Harry in the book, he was brilliant - never too perfect, but wonderfully brave.

I have to admit the thought of Regulus didn't even cross my mind until I was on the phone with talimeeka and she said she immedietely thought of it. Then I was all "HOLY COW, HOW DID I MISS THAT!" But up until that point... well, I kept thinking how annoying it was that we'd have to wait until book seven to find out who R.A.B. was. :P

(I did, however, recognize that curse in the Potion's book as the final version of the one Snape used against James in the Pensieve scene in OotP. That pretty much led to the conclusion that Snape was the HBP. I felt pretty proud of myself for that. :D)

Love the new icon. Great Fleur line!

Well, it seems unmysterious to the average obsessive adult fan, but I have a feeling there are plenty of ten-year-olds out there who are either mystified, or are feeling exceptionally clever about figuring it out.

One of the nice things about going to the midnight release party was getting a healthy reminder that we are really not the target audience for these books.

Speaking as an obsessive adult fan, it was mysterious to me for about half an hour. Then I had an "aha" moment, and it was obvious.

Then there was another "aha" moment about half an hour later, regarding a possible answer to the identity of the unknown Horcrux. I certainly hope I'm wrong about it.

I was really loving you at some points in the book. You're obviously a genius with a direct link to Jo's brain. The conversation! Was exactly! Like ones that you wrote!

I didn't even have to think about it - and I'm usually pretty thick. :)

Yes -- not mysterious at all. I was incredibly proud of dear Reg for some reason -- but if I got it, then even Watson could have my dear Holmes.

Something shared between brothers... methinks could be the very adventure to the cliff. Remember, it took two people to get to that Horcrux, as it is repeatedly pointed out. (Er, is that horrid mind-altering potion self-regenerating?)

Uhh... My mouth just dropped open an a little bit of chewed up bread fell out. Regulus Black - of course, it's so simple!! Regulus, you tricky bastard! I love you! And, Fern, I love you! How delightful!
And I also want to thank you again for Shifts. Had it not been for you, the mention of R/T in the book would have been met with a resounding "Uguhbuh?" from me. Thanks for setting up the background for that sweet little event.
