A better strategy would be just to start writing and see where the road leads instead of plotting a destination.

She's already written the final chapter. She wrote it a long time ago, to give her a goal of sorts, something achievable. Plus, it's his last year at Hogwarts (and I do believe he will go back, all the books go by "year one at Hogwarts, year two, ect."). But you never know. She could extend the series, write spin-offs, ect.

at least we'll always have fanfiction like the great one my friend and I "wrote" involving Bono as Lupin

As for the sixth book, I thought it was quite good...the best? I'm not sure. But I don't think it was the worst. It was very well done.

Sorry about that...I meant Rowling instead of Rowland {guess my mind was in South Texas when I made that mistake}.

So you're saying she's already written the final chapter of book 7 but not the previous chapters yet?

I think we all no what will happen, Harrywilll fight he who will notr be named, then as they fight to the death, the true hero will kill He who must not be named, of course it is Neville, who will do it, well it could happen, be a good twist

I'm afraid to say it quite possible Neville will be the one to kill Voldemort. Several clues lead to it

What?!? It has always been planned as 7 years/7 books. Meeting his destiny just means confronting Voldemort, I have no idea where you are getting death from, although it is a possibility. Have you ever read a fantasy series where the ending is not in sight? It isn't pretty. (I'm looking right at you, Robert Jordan).

Well the last book will show all, at least it better.

It's not in the above dictionary - and I've heard it used a lot lately (Shippers hope this...Shippers want that...)
"Shipper" is the fanfiction term for fans who want to see a relationship between two characters.

The first four WOT books are great. Then.... ugh.... Rand uses the bathroom. In excruciating detail. Let's cut to Nynaeve braiding her hair... in the dream world... in excruciating detail... back to Rand on the john...

Just in case you still care. The 11th book comes out on October and they are saying it is the next to last, so it might end after all. Despite some of the tedium, I really want to read the last book.

An interesting article on Half-Blood Prince:

I don't think that Half-Blood Prince will feel dated because of terrorism type activity. This is always a relevant concern for people.

What do you mean by relationship? Like romance and love? I try to understand Harry's character as best that I can......but I am truly not that involved in the Harry Potter scheme of things.

Just finished the book a few hours ago.

All I have to say is Wow. Maybe I'm blind, but I never thought Dumbledore would be the one to die. (I'm actually sort of relieved, I was afraid she was going to kill off Ron.) I'm even more shocked that it was Snape who did it. I never doubted that Snape was on the side of the Order, mostly because Dumbledore didn't. The more Harry became convinced Snape was up to no good, the more sure I was that he would turn out to be wrong.

I still don't think he's truly on Voldy's side. It just wouldn't be right for Dumbledore to die because he made a mistake. In the death scene, it said for the the first time Dumbledore was pleading. He wasn't concerned about death when confronted by Malfoy or the other Death Eaters, but suddenly he was pleading with Snape. I think he was begging Snape to kill him, although I have no clue why. It could be that he needed Snape to keep his Unbreakable Vow in order to prove himself to the Death Eaters...still that seems like a minor thing to sacrifice yourself for, doesn't it?

That's an interesting theory that R.A.B was Sirius's brother, that makes loads of sense. I hadn't thought of that, and it was killing me to know who those initials stood for.

I also think that Neville will play some role in eventually doing in Voldy in. Ron and Hermione are just there as his friends, but I think there must be a reason that Neville has so many parallels with Harry and is becoming more important to the plot as it progresses. It's too much of a coincidence and I think it'd be a waste of a character if he turned out not to be important in any particular way.

/dorky rant

I was sceptical before (and the 6th still has nothing on the 3rd book), but now I'm really hyped for the 7th!
