I REALLY HOPE!!! It has Nothing to do with Harry! Maybe from the past but it MUST not continue the story. JK Rowling ended PERFECTLY!!!! And to continue at all would be the worst thing that could happen!!!

I’d like it to stay in the Universe but be stand alone. I’d love a series that covers James, Sirius, Remus, Peter, Lilly and Severus’s years at Hogwarts and maybe ending the day Before James and Lilly die. That way it includes Voldemort’s first rise to power and also the origonal Order.

Well, since I’m totally JK Rowling… (…. haha), I am absolutely sure about this question.
My next book will be all about how I am not going to write another book! It will explain everything about how somehow after writing such an amazing series I am giving up books completely, all in a book. Uh…
Wait… that doesn’t work…

Ha… but realistically, I would love to see something like what PTBartman described.

I find it interesting that all four Founders have both a first name and a surname at a time when most people, including royalty had only one name. True the name was sometimes followed by their village name or by indicating they were the son of, or daughter of someone, who also only had one name. Well, they also used descripive add-ons to the name.

Like, Johnson, meant son of John and Eric the Red was descriptive of his red hair, and James of England told you that he was a king. Even Prince John Lackland means that he was the younger brother and had no land of his own to rule. Robin of Locksley clearly indicates that he was a member of the family that ruled from the manor or castle of Locksley.

I want to know about them, the Founders and how they got surnames. ;)

Salazar who slithers like a snake, Rowena who had long fingernails like a ravens claw, Godric who answered his door and found a gryfinn, ok Helgas got me stumped but the other 3 make sense

Hello Everybody!!!! I just had comcast here this morning, My internet has been going back and forth for some time now!! they ran a new wire to my house, because the old one had gone bad, which explains why I have not been able to get the internet stabely since I have had it hook up a year ago!!!!! My TV was fine, but the internet was so weird some days I would have it and then it would not allow me to get the internet and it has been going on like this for some time now!!!!! So I am very happy to report that it has been fixed, and I hope to not have the problem anymore with the new wiring!!!!!
I hope everybody is having a terrific day, I have to go into work at 6pm – 10 pm this evening, but I am off tomorrow thank goodness!!!!!! I am both a People greeter and a cashier, and I do enjoy my job, but it is more hours than I was expecting for a part-time job!!!!!! and of course it is always standing!!!! the whole time!!! which was something I had to get use to doing!!!!! I had a problem with my left upper leg, turned out it was the Interior Cutaneous Nerve Thigh that was causing the problem very painful it was also, it is much better now, and does not bother me as bad as it did, the upper outside of my left leg goes numb, and then when I try and move it felt like burning,stinging, and that I was being stuck with a thousand needles!!!!! all of this was brought on by standing 8 hours and day, and my body was just not use to doing so!!! I do get two 15 minute breaks and 1 hour for lunch of which I go outside and set on the bench!!!! and they prescribed Volteran Gell of which I put on the area before I go to work, it does help thank goodness!!!!!! because I did not think I could withstand the pain anymore, it does not happen when I am at home only when I am at work, under the tile flooring there is cement, and I still think this has something to do with it, but I am dealing with it!!!! I hope everyone has been well and enjoying the hottest month of the season!!!! We had rain showers off and on yesterday, and today is overcast, so the sun is not shinning brightly here!!!! but at least the humidity is not too bad today!!!! I am wishing everybody to have a WONDERFUL DAY!!!!

Hey Mistic & Won Woo Hoo to having full internet services. I am sure standing for 8 hrs a day on what is basically a comcrete floor is a major part of the problem Mistic good luck with getting over the problem, can you get a leg brace to wear till this all clears up? And did you get into Pottermore? Just so you know we are all still posting at the old poll. Come on by…

I would still like to get the Founders backstories. We got a taste of Rowena’s, but it had to do with the end of her life.

I want to know what made them the most powerful of their time and how the friendships formed. And who was The Gray Lady’s father.

And were any of them romanticly involved with one of the others. And, and, and…. Oh, just everything!

Were they all on the same side of a battle with a dark wizard? When did the “pureblood” ideas take hold in Slytherin? Did one of the female Founders share those views, but not as rabidly? Then at the end, was Dumbledore or Harry or even Drako descended from any of them, or their siblings (if they had siblings)?

Basically, just everything! ;)

Off to check the sites that I can. ;)

I really wish JK would do more potter stuff I wouldn’t care what era or whose perspective I’d give anything to have more potter books that’s why I’m so totally pumped for pottermore and the 18000 or so words of material she’s been hoarding!!! But nothing beats a printed book. If I COULD choose I’d like her to follow the children now and give us some details of Harry, Ron, hermione & ginnys lives as parents with jobs etc :) love HP forever

I really like PTBartmans idea!! actually and now that I think about it, JK did end it so well that it would prob just not work to follow it on even though I would love to have more I guess it’s not realistic… I need to stop dreaming lol
