September 26, 2010, 02:02 AM
There are now only 55 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 your special double quotedown!
"And under here, Hedwig" -- Harry pulled open a door under the stairs -- "is where I used to sleep! You never knew me then -- Blimey, it's small, I'd forgotten. . . ."Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
, "The Seven Potters"
"No!" Harry shouted, and though he had raised his wand no spell occurred to him. "No! It wasn't us! We didn't kill you --"
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "A Place to Hide"
I have to agree with those who think dusty dumbledore is sorta pointless. snape ransacked the house anyway, so it didn’t work, unless that’s the first place he went after he killed dumbledore…why would moody think he could scare off someone he thought just murdered someone who trusted him?
Sad that hedwig dies :(
I love the first quote. Harry sounded hilarious. The cupboard was really small. To think that was the same Harry that was a slave in this own house, was now the one that had to defeat the Dark Lord.
its crazy how much harry has changed, both physically and emotionally as well. i was shocked that hedwig died, to be honest. i didnt cry though, that wasnt until “the forest again” then i lost it. :( im going to be a bloody mess in the theaters, and i have a feeling i won’t be the only one.
I think the point of the dusty Dumbledore was to tie Snape’s tongue so he couldn’t reveal the location. After all, the DeathEaters knew that Snape knew, so they would have asked him where the Headquarters was. I think the spell was designed to tie his tongue to prevent him from revealing the location (to re-do the secret keeper-style spell), and the evidence that this worked was that the Death Eaters still couldn’t figure out how to get in to #12. They suspected it was connected because of the Kreacher thing but it was just a suspicion—-they still couldn’t properly locate it, right?
@hermy007 I’m sure you won’t be the only one!
I love that scene from the first quote, where he’s wandering around the empty house with Hedwig. It’s a small scene, but it says so much.
Wow, the first quote is bloody brilliant.
And I cant wait for the movie to get here! HURRY!
Valeria-Johanna, I too was not persuaded that the dust Dumbledore would’ve done much to deter Snape, since Snape’s conscience was clear in regard to his killing. But Mad-Eye didn’t know that when he set up the charm, did he? Still, it’s hard to imagine that anyone would expect steely Snape to go running away in a fright from what was obviously an illusion. Dusty struck me as being like something that pops up out of the dark and goes ‘Boo!’ at a haunted house theme park. You may get startled for a moment, maybe even let out a shriek; but it quickly passes and you laugh it off.
Yes, that’s pretty much what I thought.
I’m thinking that the dust Dumbledore was more of a test to see if it was Snape, and if it was then more spells would go into effect to either deter Snape or to detain him so that they could capture him.
Love the first quote. Its a nice poignant moment between Harry & his one true friend in the Muggle world, especially since he loses her so soon after that.
Love Both Quotes!
