    Maybe, Snape is the Half-Blood prince!

    Or maybe not. I'm just making a guess.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

    I think that the half-blood prince has something to do with Griffindor's heir, and the new character she had the quote about behind the door on her website. It seems to me like she's describing a lion like person (Griffindor symbol). I read somwhere that the reason that book 2 is short is that she edited out a lot that she thought was better to go in book 6. All that stuff in book 2 about Slytherin's heir and Griffindor's heir and mudbloods will tie in to book 6.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

    That is an interesting insight, Nyn... I like it. Makes sense too. I mean, Voldemort is the Slytherin heir, so their could be one for Gryffindor.

    I am working on that, I am in the middle of an essay about all those questions, and I must say I have found a nice clue....

    EDIT: Why is this in the movie section and aren't we discussing somewhere else already?

    No,Ms Rowling has already said that the Half-Blood prince is neither Harry nor Voldemort.

    What about Hagrid?Or maybe the Basilisk?

    Basilisk?

    I think you're also a Lord of the Rings fan, cause it sounds like you've been smoking the pipe weed.

    Hagrid sounds like a good idea half giant half human he could be prince of the giants but on second thought they weren't very easy on him

    Re: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

    OK, think about this one. There is a transcript on her website of a session JKR did in Edinburgh. Here's a VERY interesting part:

    "Sometimes it was really easy and the title came naturally out of the plot. Sometimes it was a bit of a struggle. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets had different titles. In fact, as everyone now knows, it was once called Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, but then I removed a whole storyline that did not work at all. It gave too much information too early, so I pulled it out and it became a major part, but not the only part, of book six. There is no trace of that storyline left in Chamber of Secrets. People have been speculating that book six is a spinoff of book two, but it is not."

    -JKR, http://www.jkrowling.co.uk/textonly/news_view.cfm?id=80

    Now, we happen to know what storyline she deleted:

    "I had a lot of background on Dean, though I had never found the right place to use it. His story was included in an early draft of 'Chamber of Secrets' but then cut by me, because it felt like an unnecessary digression. Now I don't think his history will ever make it into the books."

    JKR, http://www.jkrowling.co.uk/textonly/extrastuff_view.cfm?id=2

    hehe... This is the best lead we had up 'till now!

    Yes, that makes 3 of us...

    Oh, in same session she said that Aberforth Dumbledore, Albus' only known relative already appeared in the story! He's the keeper of the Hog's Head Inn! Really, if anyone is interested in JKR's secrets, read the whole transcript. There are some real nice hints and answers...

    Re: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

    Hagrid would be a good choice, cause it would be very unexpected that he would be a prince. I mean typical princes are smart charming elegant have dignity, good manners and such. And Hagrid is a bit of a scoundrel. He's not the smartests. But he is a kind person.

    Re: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

    I think it is Godric Gryffindor as JKR said she could've called CoS book HBP though she didn't and CoS book had something to do with being heir to and I think that'll be in book six too.

    Well I'm sure the Basilisk wasn't the result of two normal snakes liking each other!

    Re: Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince

    I wish the HBP was Lupin, since we know he's half-blood, but I guess that's kinda impossible since he wasn't in book 2.

    I'm still wondering about the chapter titles:
    Chapter Two: Spinners End
    Chapter Six: Draco's Detour
    Chapter Fourteen: Felix Felicis

    and what that whole passage about the lion-like guy was about. My current theory being Aberforth, but I'm not remotely sure.

    Any theories, anyone?

    I'm pretty sure that Harry's going to become some kind of ninja.
