Hi Mumbai_Masti, Where is this article from? Could you please give the source? Thanks!

My opinion on this article:

Though this was an interesting piece, I feel that it is faulty in several aspects.

I agree with the assessment of OWL results and the assessment of relationships.

I also find it interesting how the author linked the "lion" person described in the short quote to "Godric Gryffindor. However, there is one point to be noted here. Godric Gryffindor has been dead for centuries! So unless he has been in hiding for a long time, living off immortality medicines, it is highly unlikely that Gryffindor is the new DADA teacher.

The speculations about the deaths are really "speculations" and would make a good fan-fic. However, so far, we have not been able to get any solid evidence from the books themselves about foreshadowing of deaths.

About Godric Gryffindor as the HBP: I would have possibly agreed with the author except that one tiny thing is bothering me -- Godric Gryffindor used to be friends with Salazar Slytherin! From the Sorting Hat's Song in OoTP:

"For were there such friends anywhere / As Slytherin and Gryffindor?

Unless it was the second pair / Of Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw?" (p. 185, Scholastic Ed.)

"Said Slytherin, 'We'll teach just those/Whose ancestry is purest'" (p. 185)

I highly doubt that a pure-blood fanatic like Slytherin would have been such good friends with Gryffindor if he was a half-blood!

Perhaps Gryffindor was a champion of half-bloods - in the sense that he supported them in front of Slytherin. Remember how Voldy called Dumbledore a "muggle-loving fool"?

But, then this raises the question of whether the Half-Blood Prince is a half-blood himself? Did JKR specifically mention that? Confused
