Cory doesn't even know what he's in for. He doesn't stand a chance.

P.S. Dumbledore lives. Don't believe the lies.

Yeah, well, he WOULDN'T stand a chance if I could ever get around to seeing him. :/ And Dumbledore?! Oh, I wish SO MUCH that he wasn't dead! :(

Well think on these two things:

1)Where was Fawkes? Taking a day off from saving Harry and Dumbledore deus ex machina style all the time?

2)What usually happens to somebody who gets Avada Kedavra'd? What happened to Dumbledore?

Fawkes appears at the last moment in Chamber of Secrets and Order of the Phoenix, yet is mysteriously absent when Dumbledore gets Kedavra'd.

Every previous example we've seen of Avada Kedavring results in the victim dying instantly and their body crumpling to the floor, but Dumbledore is shot backwards off the edge of the tower. Also, we know that Snape is very good at nonverbal spells - half of the book was about them - and that for an Unforgivable Curse to work you have to really want to cause pain; maybe Snape cast the killing curse and Expelliarmus simultaneously, speaking only the first, which had no effect on Dumbledore because Snape wasn't trying to kill him.

Very intriguing! I mean, I was absolutely positively CERTAIN (well, 99.9%) that Snape wasn't evil. There's just no WAY - she devoted an entire book to him, Dumbledore has always trusted him, and it just doesn't make sense that in the end he'd have been a spy or whatever. Yeah, I'm gonna run your take by some friends and see what they say!

There's more. For like an entire chapter after Dumbledore beefs it, Fawkes is crying - crying restorative tears. Then at the funeral we never see Dumbledore's body, or his wand. Also he tells Draco Malfoy that they can make the Death Eaters think he's dead, which is clearly what his own plan is.

Furthermore, when Dumbledore is pleading with Snape, it's clearly the opposite of what we're supposed to think - begging for his own life is so wildly out of character for Dumbledore, I'm ashamed of having bought it - he's begging Snape to let him have it, and Snape's look of hatred and revulsion (the same words used when Harry is giving Dumbledore that fucked up potion) is at himself and what he knows he has to do.

Booyah!

WHO can make the Death Eaters think he's dead? I remember Fawkes crying... I also thought it was fishy that Dumbledore was pleading like that - it seemed strange. And I had a feeling it wasn't him pleading for his life either.

But here's the other thing: Have you ever read the essays by Joseph Campbell about myth and storytelling? He discusses how all heroes in all hero tales throughout history have the same basic structure, and how the hero has the same basic personality. Tragic flaw and this and that - but one important aspect of the hero is that they have to go on their final journey completely alone. Which is why, obviously, Harry has to break up with Ginny and he can't take Ron and Hermione with him in the end - even in the very end of each book when he fights Voldemort, he does it alone, though Ron and Hermione helped him get there. And that's why, I assume, Sirius had to die, because he was the closest person to family Harry really had. And now Dumbledore "dies," he lets his friends go... whether Dumblefore comes back in the end or not, I think the point is that the only way the hero can truly grow and become a hero is to make the final trek alone.

Dumbledore offers to hide Draco. He says something like "no one can kill you if you're already dead."

i'm reading that interview wacky kayaker posted about and here is a quote: JKR: Yeah, well, I think if you take a step back, in the genre of writing that I'm working in, almost always the hero must go on alone. That's the way it is, we all know that, so the question is when and how, isn't it, if you know anything about the construction of that kind of plot.

didjew read that? you are so smart.

Haha, no I didn't read that. She's just reiterating what Joseph Campbell has studied extensively and written about throughout his entire career.

No no no no no. You are so wrong, because you didn't read J.K. Rowling's EXCLUSIVE post-HBP-publication interview with Mugglenet in which she EXPLICITLY states for the benefit of all the most devoted and hardcore fans, who read said interview, that Dumblydorr is indeed dead as a doornail. She wants to avoid the "He Lives!" speculations. Dumbledore is NOT a metaphor for Jesus.

if you don't believe me, go here:

and be sure to read the whole thing! Ok, so maybe she doesn't state it explicitly--but she sure hints pretty hard.
