Leaky’s Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 50 Days


Oct 01, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

There are now only 50 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 is today’s quote!

Back in his bedroom, Harry fiddled aimlessly with his rucksack, then poked a couple of owl nuts through the bars of Hedwig’s cage. They fell with dull thuds to the bottom, where she ignored them.
“We’re leaving soon, really soon,” Harry told her. “And then you’ll be able to fly again.”

She loved him, and I agree with Silvery Doe ... Hedwig DOES fly free again!Avatar ImageSohumdore says: She doesn't truly fly, she was in a cage when she died :( Harry should have let her fly behind them!! but she does fly free :)Avatar ImageSusmita singh says: Very touchee! I love Hedwig. I love Harry too much, he is so emotional here.Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Hedwig :(Avatar Imagenealiezealbie says: FIFTY DAYS! GAHHHHH! im so freaking excited. Avatar Imagetealover says: I think there was a lot of different thoughts going through Harry's mind. Although the Dursleys never treated Harry as family, they were his only blood relatives. And now, instead of Harry leaving them, they were leaving Harry. Perhaps he felt some guilt about their being forced to leave their home, a source of pride for them and (until he and Ginny marry and make a home ) the only house he could remember. He was losing the protection of his mother, and an "anchor" ( albeit not one filled with happy memories ). Those constants in his life were changing, and not by his own bidding. Avatar Imagetaoist1 says: How sad. Maybe Hedwig sensed her impending doom.Avatar ImageJessSnape says: Anything about Hedwig just makes me sad:/ I know people had to die in this battle but did the owl too??Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: 48 days more. im crying my eyes outAvatar Imageratorr2 says: @ Gryffindor Fox I was just noticing the same thing. The wait for it is long enough without someone adding more days to it. lolAvatar Imageeccentricalice says: Feels very sad to read this with hindsight, to know that she won't be flying in Harry's world but beyond ='(Avatar Image2tal says: Sad knowing that this is nearly the last time Harry sees Hedwig ...Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Tealover's comment about 4 Privet Drive being Harry's only home until he makes one with Ginny makes me wonder: Has JKR divulged anything about where Harry went to live after the Battle of Hogwarts, when he started working as an Auror? Did he continue the thankless task of trying to turn 12 Grimmauld Place into a cheery home, or give it up as a bad job? Has anyone heard her speak to this point?Avatar ImageHarrypotterultrafan says: wooooooooo:):) 48 days :):) 1 month and 18 daysss !!!!!! :):):) woooooooooooooAvatar ImageSlyBones says: That was sad...considering what happened to her.

Harry escaped, but his faithful owl was gone from him for ever. I am glad that the movie will show that Hedwig died "in battle". I agree with JKR, though. Those we loved are never completely gone from us. Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: sad she was mad at him until the end
