Around the Common Room

Quick trip around the Common Room to see what’s happening in the Harry world.

Naming Book 7 – A few news articles have been trickling in about the possible names of the last book, based on supposedly good information from the UK patent office.  Using this one and this one, we get these options:

  • Harry Potter and the Alchemist’s Cell
  • Harry Potter and the Pyramids of Furmat
  • Harry Potter and the Chariots of Light
  • Harry Potter and the Parseltongue Trophy
  • Harry Potter and the Great Revelation

Which, of course, just goes to show that even secret inside information can be absurd.  Hopefully they didn’t pay too much for it.  Alchemist’s Cell makes sense since alchemy is so important to the series, and it has been suggested by others.  Pyramids of Furmat…well, at least we have the stories of the Weasleys in Egypt, Bill becoming a bigger character, and now the main characters able to apparate.  So trips to Egypt in Book 7 are not out of the question.  The other three options just seem odd to me.

Will Harry Die?  I don’t agree with everything in this post, but you should read it.  If you’re really freaked out by the idea of Harry dying, this article might be helpful.  I agree with the guy – it would be a perfect tragic and beautiful ending if Harry were to sacrificially.

  1. Though I agree with what this guy has to say about tragedies, I do not agree with what he and the guy from the Wall Street Journal have to say about J.K. Rowling’s writing skills. If Mr. Wall Street Journal, sorry I can’t remember his name, were to read the rest of Rowling’s works, everything he said in his article would have to be riscinded.
