Wow i wonder where that horcrux in Hogwarts is. The book keeps getting better and better through every chapter, getting sad already knowing that in less than 10 chapters Harry Potter's Thrilling story comes to and end. :-(

Hang in there, JaYzRICH--I'm "on the other side," so I can vouch that there is, indeed, life after the book is over :smileywink: , but do take your time getting there! Many of the weekend readers are now complaining that they read too fast and are now re-reading more slowly. So, take your time and enjoy.

Re: Discuss Chapter 27

Connie, I knew that was going to happen, so I was determined to read it in my own time. I'm so glad that I have! This way I've still had time to process and guess what I think is going to come next.

I think the Hogwarts Horcrux is in one of two places...either in the Room of Requirement, or in the Chamber of SecretS. I thought of the RoR because of that tarnished tiara, but I think Voldemort would have taken a little more care with a Horcrux left there. So I think it's more likely to be in the Chamber of Secrets. We've only seen one secret there, so why is the word plural?

And I am thrilled beyond measure to know that Dumbledore was right about the blasted snake. This means that Harry really CAN'T be a Horcrux, and I'm just so glad to know that I was right about something else!

Yes! I was waiting for the ceremonial return to Hogwarts. At least they've got the Marauder's Map. But what could the fifth Horcrux be?

I think it might be in the Room of Requirement! Remember the room full of hidden objects?!? Perhaps Voldemort thoght he alone would be able to acess that room and hid it in there. Or perhaps the Chamber of secrets.

He did say Plunged didnt he? Perhaps the Black Lake?


Room of Requirement
Chamber of Secrets
Bottom of te black lake
Secret Passageways known only to the creators, and viewers of the Marauders Map,and Mischevious peeps + Voldemort
The Potions Chamber (where he learned 'bout Horcruxes)
The Headmaster's office (right onder Dumbledore's Nose)

[ Edited ]
Yeah, I've been trying to figure out what the Horcrux could be in Hogwarts, and where it could be located. I'm sure it's something that JKR mentioned in passing in one of the earlier books; one of the things you read but don't really think of as being particularly important.
I'll be excited when they do return to Hogwarts. I miss it. :smileysad:
Hey, this is my 100th post!!! :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy: :smileyhappy:
