Asha004- I wondered that exact same thing! But then I thought about it and came up with this theory. First of all...In the fifth book,(I'm not sure who mentions this) but all the Time Turners were smashed after Harry and the gang had their little mess at the Ministry of Magic. Another problem would be how to return to the present. In the third movie when the Time Turner first shows up, after Harry and Hermione uses the Time Turner to go back a couple of hours, they have to wait for the hours to go by until they are back in the present For example, if you went back into the year 1977, I don't think you could just use the Time Turner to return to your own time. I believe you would have to live through the years until you ended up where you started. Although I'm not 100% sure if that is how the Time Turner works, its just my theory since that is what they did in the 3rd book and movie. Last but not least, Dumbledore warned Harry not to be seen or that would mess up time. So if my theory about having to live through the time until you were back where you started...I think it might be extremely hard not to mess up or the past or be seen. Then again, J.K. Rowling probably has a reason for killing off Dumbledore and my beloved Sirius. So we will just have to put up with it and see what she does. But I agree with you...If I had my way Dumbledore would still be alive and so would Sirius^-^ Hope what I said makes sense...... ~Lady Black~




...i also agree with u Clap Clap ....like dumbledore said wizards who play with the past and present, have faced many problems Ouch Ouch ....it cant be the easy LOL LOL ....its Jo...at the end of the day....she has to make its more exciting Tongue .....
