I was just browsing the HP Lexicon and came across this:
HPL: Wands: “Unicorn tail hairs
Cedric, Neville, and Ron all have wands with unicorn tail hairs in them. This is a bit disturbing because of the following exchange from PS15:
‘Yeah,’ said Hagrid, glancing up, too. ‘Listen, I’m glad we’ve run inter yeh, Ronan, ’cause there’s a unicorn bin hurt — you seen anythin’?’
Ronan didn’t answer immediately. He stared unblinkingly upward, then sighed again.
‘Always the innocent are the first victims,’ he said. ‘So it has been for ages past, so it is now.’
Cedric, like the unicorn, has already died. Is Ron or Neville next?”
So…is this some cleverly thought out plot on JK Rowling’s part? Is it a clue that Neville and Ron will be the two to die in the upcoming “Deathly Hallows”? As sad as it would be for Ron to die, at least if it were those two then that would spare Harry’s life. Not that much of a fan of Neville, so…farewell Mr Longbottom!
In other news…I’m trying to find the best place to go and get my copy of the new book when it comes out. I discovered a Melbourne based Harry Potter fanclub who say there’s going to be a big launch at the Dymocks store on Collins street…to go or not to go…I think I’ll go!!
