Leaky’s Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 83 Days


Aug 28, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

There are now only 83 days left until “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I” hits theaters! We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here are today’s!

Finally Bill said, “All right. Who do you want to talk to first?”

Harry hesitated. He knew what hung on his decision. There was hardly any time left; now was the moment to decide: Horcruxes or Hallows?

“Griphook,” Harry said. “I’ll speak to Griphook first.”

Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: An interesting moment in the book, and it looks as though they are showing something like it in the film.Avatar Imageblessi says: Wo wo WOW!!, this is one of the exciting part, I like it!.. wow!! I imagine now the scene. Thanks by the way. Wohooo!! HPDH is near 83 days to go.!Avatar ImageSindi says: exciting! :D Avatar Imagehermy007 says: this moment is so important to me, its the the one moment where Harry decides his fate really by trusting dumbledore, even though he knows that left so many things to chance. he doesn't want to pursue dreams of glory by becoming the master of death and uniting the hallows. he decides to go after the horcruxes, which would end up bringing a lot of happiness to everyone. basically, he chooses others over himself, and that really foreshadows the events that go down in the forbidden forest. most importantly, this is the moment that Harry starts to become the type of selfless hero he was destined to be. yay, 82 days, till part 1!Avatar ImageGarrett says: you guys choose the best quotesAvatar Imageazaadpotter says: Great!!!!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: Exciting! Avatar ImagemmmDraco.x says: :'DAvatar ImageDawna says: I agree with Hermy007...this is pivotal. Of course, the irony is that by not choosing Hallows, he ends up with them & by accepting death in the forest, he does master it.Avatar Imagemark707 says: this one of the most important parts in the book..because harry chose to trust DumbledoreAvatar ImageLillylove says: Like hermy007 says, this is a pivotal point in the book. We see Harry make the turn, where he truly puts faith & conviction into his direction. This was the point in the book where, as I read, I could feel a transformation in Harry from a boy trying to do what he felt expected, to a man who was confident in his path. And I loved him all the more for it.Avatar ImageAsta says: That was a hard decision - Hallows or Horcruxes... love the quotes :)Avatar ImageAsta says: That was a hard decision - Hallows or Horcruxes... love the quotes :)Avatar ImageAsta says: That was a hard decision - Hallows or Horcruxes... love the quotes :)Avatar ImageAsta says: That was a hard decision - Hallows or Horcruxes... love the quotes :)Avatar Imagedreampotter says: this is the most crucial part of the book. Harry makes the choice to go after the horcruxes and not the hallows. It shows how much he has matured.Avatar Imagekrumshark says: hard decision, and wrong choiceAvatar Imagehalfbloodprincesss says: i completely agree with everyone here. hallows or horcruxes? and it kind of puts harry at a crossroads on whether after all this, could dumbledore still be right with the horcruxes? or should harry start his own journey with the hallows? and in the end he lands with the hallows and the defeated horcruxes which also leaves the question still; hallows or horcruxes?Avatar ImageFresca says: Hermy007 is absolutely right. The decision to finsih Voldemort over chasing after the Hallows was a difficult one for Harry, but he "chose wisely". Otherwise Voldie might not have been vanquished, and as Hermy 007 says, Harry's decision really benefited the whole wizarding world. If he had chosen to go after the Hallows he would, perhaps, have benefited in the short term, but the wizarding world as a whole would not. Avatar Imagehermionenluna says: beautifulAvatar ImageMJBDE15 says: I'm still interested as to how they are going to incorporate the werewolf attack on Bill in the Seventh film considering they failed to mention it in HBPAvatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: Oh I remember that part, *Horcruxes or Hallows?*. It was an intense choice. That's the part where they go to Gringotts..........Avatar ImageGryffindor_Girl_xx says: Yayy! DH is nearly here!! LOVE the quote!!!Avatar Imagez999993 says: Hallows or Horcruxes? Both very important in the book, as is this scene. He makes a good decision w/ the Horcruxes. His priority needs to be to destroy them first. I still can't wait until the movie. only 83 more days! Avatar ImageSilvery Doe says: Horcruxes or Hallows? Guess he made he right decision in the end. Why was he worried about Hallows though? Was it because he knew then that Voldemort was after the Elder wand?Avatar ImagemOOn-stArs-sUn says: AHH! EXCITEMENT!!!Avatar Imagelizzyrc says: that gives me chills!Avatar ImageSohumdore says: This was the best it finally shows that Harry was brought back to his senses and decided that his obsession with Hallows was foolish. I love how he finally got back to the Horcruxes.Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: I completely agree; Harry became a man at this point and I LOVE it,Avatar ImageL. Ravenclaw says: Wye is waiting so boring... at least we can watch AVPM and AVPS!

Hocruxes, or Hallows? Glad Harry made the right choice :DAvatar Imagepurplewitch_30 says: Hallows or Horcruxes?Avatar Imagepurplewitch_30 says: Hallows or Horcruxes?Avatar Imageeccentricalice says: I love these quotes you're picking out, and like everyone has said, this moment is so pivotal in the books! Harry is choosing between what Dumbledore has entrusted to him, and what he is very tempted by.Avatar Imageliterarynerd says: I loved this part of the book. You guys really do choose the best quote, but you probably already knew that.Avatar ImageVincenza says: I just love how Harry has to make the decision of what he feels is more important to him- Hallows or Horcruxes?Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Harry has matured so much by this point!Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: I was so in awe of Harry's ability to keep a clear head in this scene. He is totally exhausted (emotionally and physically), but he is able to sort his thoughts brilliantly. I, on the other hand, was freaking out!!!Avatar Imagemaddison says: Argghhhh Harry finally makes the decision !!!!!!Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: wondering what would happen if he picked ollivanderAvatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: for once harry made a choice quickly and it was the right oneAvatar Imageksddancer says: This was a very interesting part where Harry had to think of every possibility of an outcome of a single act.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: 83 Whoo Hoo...Avatar Imagesomethingtolivefor says: I love seeing that I'm not the only person who thought all the same things! There is so much "hidden" meaning in JK's words... lessons to learn, things we take into our daily lives! At that moment Harry became a man, a man who's destiny was written the moment he recieved that scar. He moved forward and never looked back. Did what needed to be done no matter what got in his way. Never gave up. All lessons we need to remember. Thanks JK. I needed reminding. Avatar ImageLonewolf_ says: :)
