WARNING : The contents of this post might be distressing to some people. This post contains possible spoilers about the latest Harry potter book. Though i doubt its authenticity, those who do not want to take the risk of it being a real spoiler should read no further. You have been warned.
The internet has been abuzz with rumours doing rounds of a leak in the 10 million pound security of Harry Potter and the deathly hallows. These rumours were substantiated by the Times of India, which carries an article about the pages of the latest book being photographed, albiet in an amateurish manner. Many hackers have claimed to have obtained information about the hugely anticipated ending of the mega-series. One such site, gave the following info on the latest spoilers to have propped up on the net:
Percy dies (this death occurs before the wedding, inevitably throwing events into chaos).
Details arent needed. Just say BELLATRIX KILLS RON!
I found this to be the saddest part of the book. As many people guessed, all was not what it seemed with Dumbledore, and the two did indeed have a plan that would eventually result in Snape killing him. But, Snape was only in on things for personal gain, and when Voldemort learns of this, he is obviously furious with Snape. Snape tries to make up for things by luring Harry to him, but Harry manages to escape, and Voldemort kills Snape before the final conflict.
I dont know what all these rumours are about Voldemort kidnapping Ron, it?s a complete lie. Ron is killed by Bellatrix Lestrange in The Battle of Hogwarts, but Neville manages to finish off Bellatrix after Ron weakens her before his death.
Harry Potter is not a horcrux.
As Ive already stated, Voldemort kills Snape.
Voldemort is killed in the Department Of Mysteries. He baits Harry Potter about his parents, Sirius, Dumbledore and Ron. which turns out to be the worst thing Voldemort could have done. As Voldemort steps out into the circular bit with many doors, Harry Potter opens the locked door, and Voldemort is destroyed by the blinding light, which heals Harry Potter, who seems close to death (he does not die).
The cover art shows Voldemort + Harry Potter at the Deathly Hallows, Harry Potter is attempting to summon Voldemort's Horcrux, as Voldemort is doing his best to keep the enchantment in place.
No-one loses a body part, no idea where that came from.
Also Harry Potter does not get drunk whoever said that.
Harry Potter does not lose his powers.
Whats the deal with the dragon on the US deluxe cover?
The trio fly on it to get to the Deathly Hallows. Only Harry Potter and Voldemort can fight on the Deathly Hallows, but this is not their final encounter.
Whats happening on the UK kids cover?
Gringotts. The trio are searching for the locket (it isnt there) but they get vital information on Ravenclaws book here.
Hows the epilogue done?
I didnt like it. It was in the form of a newspaper article, a sort of ?Where Are They Now?? thing, 20 years on from the final showdown.
You said Ron dies so what happens to Hermy at the end?
As said, her love life isnt specified. But she becomes a Healer at St. Mungos.
Whats Luna/Hagrid/Weasley twins/Neville's fate?
Becomes editor of Quibbler (her dad passes it on to her)/Remains at Hogwarts to this day/Weasley?s Wizard Wheezes becomes multinational/Herbology teacher at Hogwarts after Sprout?s death (old age she isnt killed)
What happens to Voldys body in the end?
Completely obliterated by the love from locked room.
What are the horcruxes? How does Harry Potter find and destroy them?
Nagini/Locket/Cup/Ravenclaws Book. Symbol on UK spine is a device that enables Harry Potter to locate soul fragments if you will, Harry Potter can destroy them a lot more easily than Dumbledore.
Whats the deal with the mirror? How does RAB and Kreacher come into the story?
Sirius has left an almost a voicemail? message on the mirror, to advise him on destroying the horcrux. Kreacher has to tell the trio (on Harry?s orders) about the history of the symbol and where to find it.
Whats the lies of Dumbledore chapter about?
Neon was right about this, this is to do with the plan with Snape. I don?t know if he got lucky because the Grindelwald thing isnt even close.
What happens to all the teachers? Who?s new headmaster etc?
McGonagall is new headmistress.
Whats Harry?s fate in the end? Job etc?
Becomes an almost freelance Auror but refuses to work for the MoM
There. The site also has the names of the chapters, but i feel to include it here is unnecessary. The claims look pretty probable, to say the least. Whether these are authentic, or pathetic attempts at fame, i dont know. If it is the real thing, i must say i would be a tad dissapointed. I just hope all this is just crap minted out by some jobless individual.. would'nt want to spoil the plot that JKR has in store for muggledom. Don't look at me like that, i shall keep trying my best to get hold of spoilers, and keep wishing that they arent authentic. More updates due, btw.
PS : im currently downloading the torrent version of the apperently 'leaked' .jpg files of the book. Lets see how authentic the seem :P
