What does albus dumbledore see when he looks in the mirror of eresed? P.s. what he said he saw.

message 4: by Ashley (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:06PM) (new)

Ashley (readerandwriter) He probably lied to Harry so he didn't have to tell Harry what he really desired. Which brings up this question. What did dumbledore desperately desire? The mirror of erised show what you truly desperately desire.

Taylor S | 118 comments Well, you know, Dumbledore was really a very quirky person. He could have really meant it when he said that he saw himself with a pair of woolen socks. I don't think that he's every lied to Harry. He's kept stuff from him, sure, but never lied.

Kenzie What happened to the questions?

message 7: by Veronica (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:06PM) (new)

Veronica (v_a_b) They disappeared in somebody's musings, but they have just now rooted themselves into my keyboard.

When Harry asks Umbridge how many times he has to write, "I must not tell lies," what does she say?

Tess | 134 comments Until the message sinks in...or something like that.

Why does Harry get his broomstick taken in the 5th book?

message 9: by Peng (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:07PM) (new)

Peng | 317 comments it was dolores' punishment to him. she was taking everything that would make harry happy.

how did harry and ron get in the secret chamber?

**i agree w/ taylor that dumbledore didn't lie to harry. it may be that he is already contented w/ what he has and sees that in the mirror except at that particular time he was cold and may want sock for xmas. ^_^

message 10: by Ashley (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:07PM) (new)

Ashley (readerandwriter) Harry Speaks parcel tounge in the girls bathroom which transforms the sinks into a tunnel big enough for the basilisk to roam throuh.

Brooke | 7 comments Hedwig died in number 6.

What did harry say about the unbeatable wand notbeing snapes?

message 12: by Taylor S (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:08PM) (new)

Taylor S | 118 comments I thought Hedwig died in number 7.

message 13: by Tracey (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:09PM) (new)

Tracey you're right, Taylor...Hedwig was the first casualty of Deathly Hallows, during the time when the multiple-Harry's left the Dursley's.

message 14: by Nikki (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:09PM) (new)

Nikki Boisture Sorry to get away from the questions again...I think Dumbledore saw himself with the Deathly Hallows in the mirror of Erised.

Now...what was that last question again?

message 15: by Zoab (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:10PM) (new)

Zoab Kapoor No he probably saw himself and Gellert Grindelwald being married (that's probably something he'd keep from Harry). Still hard to believe he's gay.

message 16: by [deleted user] (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:10PM) (new)

I think that in the mirror Dumbledore saw his life as it would have existed at that moment had his sister not died, family not been destroyed, etc. Basically, he saw himself as though the things that truly caused deep heartache and emotional scarring had not happened.

Question: What is the ONLY point in the entire series where we are able to find out what calendar year it is?

message 17: by Peng (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:10PM) (new)

Peng | 317 comments this post is getting to be complicated! lol! going back to the question of the elder wand not being snape's.... isn't that supposed to be snape's? i mean, that's why dumbledore asked snape to kill him so the wand could be his therefore, voldemort could not really use it assuming voldemort would get the wand in dumbledore's coffin. that's the way it went, right?

how did harry hail the knight bus in the third book?

message 18: by [deleted user] (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:10PM) (new)

He sticks his wand hand out which, in this case, happened when he was backing away from The Grim (Sirius) after leaving the Dursley's, tripped, and fell over backwards into the street.

But you didn't answer my question.

What is the ONLY point in the entire series where we are able to find out what calendar year it is?

Jenna (jentobox) | 16 comments When we saw the gravestone of Harry's parents... Harry was born in the 90's right?

What one of the twins does Ron take to the Yule Ball Parvati or Padma?

message 20: by [deleted user] (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:10PM) (new)

Ok, so in Year 2 at Hogwarts Harry is invited to Nearly Headless Nick's deathday party. The original date of Nick's death was October 31, 1492. Therefore, Year 2 begins in 1992, meaning Year 1 began in 1991 (when Harry was 11). This means that Harry was born in 1980 and would be 27 today.

If the gravestones of Harry's parents say something different, JK Rowling might have made a mistake!

Oh, and I don't remember dates on the Potters' gravestones. I might have been wrong about that whole "ONLY place in the entire series" nonsense...

Jenna (jentobox) | 16 comments You're right Julie. I just looked in my book Lily and James died on December 31, 1981. It's on pg.328 of the Deathly Hallows. Ha ha I'm a nerd.

Tess | 134 comments just a question from above...why does everyone die on halloween??

message 24: by Peng (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:13PM) (new)

Peng | 317 comments a love potion? can't remember. i'm still in book 3 after revisiting every book again. and i noticed that jk gave hints of dumbledore's quaintness in every book. like in book 1 during xmas dinner, dumbledore replaced his "pointed wizard's hat for a flowered bonnet". and in book 2 when harry first saw dumbledore's office it was full of "spindly" stuffs. we all probable just passed it as dumbledore's queerness but never thought that he was really "queer". wonder what i'll find out in the other books though...

how did harry free dobby?

message 25: by Adam (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:13PM) (new)

*QUESTION* How many classes did Hermonie have in "Harry Potter and the Prisnor of Azkaban"?

message 26: by Shifa (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:13PM) (new)

Shifa Lateef | 27 comments All of the classes that Harry had exept she had more than him. So they both had the same classes (well she left Divination so that ones out), exept Hermione had alot more extras. Are you asking for a number?

What month was hermione born and is she older than Harry and Ron?

message 27: by Peng (last edited Aug 25, 2016 02:14PM) (new)

Peng | 317 comments hermione's birthday is september so that makes her younger than harry whose birthday is july and ron who has the same birthday as me, march 01. ^_^

in relation to adam's question, i'm reading book 3 now and ron complained about hermione's class schedule which has 3 subjects in an hour:
9:00 Divination
9:00 Muggle Studies
9:00 Arithmancy

so that makes her classes triple compared to harry & ron's.

Why are dementors always after harry (like in the train lupin already said sirius was not there but the dementor still stayed and in the quidditch game they went after harry)?

message 28: by Kenzie (new)

Kenzie because he has horrors in his past that the other students could only dream of
