Another perspective on my Harry Potter predictions

John McKay of archy, although he mostly agreed with predictions by Coturnix and me that the Harry Potter character who's going to die in the Book #6 will be Albus Dumbledore, couldn't resist playing the contrarian and presenting a counter case that it may not be Dumbledore. He may have a point. It's possible, as he says, that the information that led to a cluster of Internet betting on Dumbledore's death originating from a town were previous Harry Potter books had been published may have been misinformation and misdirection.

He has a point, but I'm still sticking to my original prediction, though. Dumbledore's going to buy it in the next book, and Snape's going to become Headmaster of Hogwarts to replace him. However, I will give OutEast credit for one-upping me by suggesting that Snape is still a Death Eater and that the reason he is so loyal to Dumbledore is because Dumbledore will supplant Valdemort as the Dark Lord, making him real the foe that Harry will end up having to face.

Cool idea, but I don't think so.
