W.O.M.B.A.T. code please

Hear ye Potter fans,
Can some generous soul please give me their W.O.M.B.A.T. code, pretty please with cherry on top?
(Fluttering puppy eyes)
All you have to do is put it as a comment which I will not publish if you don't want to share it with the whole world.

Or at least tell me what's on the other site of the WOMBAT card on Rowling's website. The mystery is killing me. Waiting for the seventh book is hard enough. Are the WOMBAT code owners privy to some things that will happen in the next book? I sure hope that Dumbledore does not pull a Gandalf in the seventh book. I would be really disappointed if that happened. Although I am not entirely sure why Dumbledore can't hang out like Moaning Myrtle and Nearly Headless Nick and continue to be the head of Hogwarts?

I am fairly convinced that the two characters that die in the last Potter book are Voldy and Harry. Can't believe that there are actual sites for betting money on who dies in the seventh book (www.sportsinteraction.com). My favorite theory (from the hundreds of insane ones online) is that Harry is a Horcrux and therefore the prophecy, "and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not… and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives". So Harry Potter has to sacrifice his life to kill Voldy. What's more, Rowling does not have to write any sequels.

WOMBATs are the tests which were put behind the Secret Door in the department of mysteries (The door with the sign "DO not disturb" in JKR's site). The people who took the tests were given their ids to retrieve their scores. I missed the opening of the door *sob*

Harry as horcrux is interesting theory, one on which there are multiple discussions. But, given JKR's recent comments, many people feel that Hagrid is the next person to go in book 7. Apparently JKR had to spare a person she was going to kill earlier (thought to be Lupin), and instead kill another...

Fleiger,
You let me down. How could you have missed the quiz in the mystery room? :p

Has JKR ever denied the possibility of Harry being a horcrux?

I and my sister have together formulated a theory:
1)Harry is a horcrux.
2)Voldy doesn't know it yet.
3)Harry will destroy all other horcruxes.
4)Wormtail will come to know that Harry is a horcrux. So when Voldy will try to kill Harry, Wormtail will save Harry to save Voldy actually... this was needed because Wormtail has to save Harry's life once in the series.
5)After all other Horcruxes are destroyed, Voldy will become weak as before, but he can't do anything as Harry will have total control over him. He can't kill Harry or he'll die. This is what Dumbledore meant when he said "There are things worse than death." Harry won't need to kill himself.
6)Dumbledore is well and truly dead. However, Snape killed him on his own instruction.

I don't know about this WOMBAT thingie... I'll just check it out.

Hey Joy,
So according to your theory Voldy does not know Harry is a horcrux. How is that possible? The act of creating horcrux requires Voldy to know where parts of his soul hides, no? As far as Dumbledore being dead...I am not questioning that. I wonder why he can't hang around in Hogwarts like Myrtle and Nick?

WOMBAT IDs were given to those who successfully completed a quiz administered in the mystery room on JKRs site. The room opens for a very short window of time. So only those who took the quiz have those IDs. You can use the ID on her website to access a part of her website that is not open to everybody. I was hoping some reader would have an ID. Lets see if somebody shows up.

Oh, from what I hear, only thing behind WOMBAT card is your scores, so you are not missing anything (at least that is what I console myself with everytime I see that card there) Apparently there is one more WOMBAT coming our way soon...

I am not sure whether JKR ever has denied it officially, but given her recent comments (in New York and all) I think that possibility is remote. Also, consider the fact that Lord Voldemort came after Harry to kill him, as he is the only one who can challenge him. And also, he did not have time once the curse rebounded.

Or are you suggesting Harry is horcrux by mistake?

alias Fleiger said...

Oh, and about Dumbledore hanging around, I think he would prefer "the next great adventure"...

Joy Forever said...

I meant Harry became a horcrux by mistake. So Voldy does not know the fact. But he became weak after he tried to kill Harry. And Harry and Voldy have a strange relationship, right? Both are parseltongues, and Harry could see things through the eyes of Nagini, who is supposed to be another horcrux. Also, Harry can feel it in his scar if Voldy is around, or when he is feeling particularly evil...

Fleiger,
You are right, there is nothing other than the test results behind the WOMBAT card. I just had to see it to believe it and now there is one less mystery torturing my mind :).
Thats selfish of Dumbledore to leave Harry and his friends to fend for themselves in such trying times then. Hmph!

Joy,
I just can't wrap my head around the idea that Harry is a horcrux by mistake. Publish book seve already J.K.R.!

A special mention for the generous soul who provided me with the WOMBAT code (you know who you are). Tere mooh mein ghee shakkar (or whatever it is that you like to eat). :) :)

alias Fleiger said...

Wow... somebody gave you their WOMBAT code? Lucky you...

And don't worry about Harry, he has all the Order with him, and I am guessing Fawkes too... He can't die, or JKR will have to pull Conan Doyle.

Harry could be a Horcrux by mistake. This theory can be substantiated with the fact that Voldy was unaware of the power the infant Harry would have when he tried to kill him. That transmission of power then, made Harry the final and accidental Horcrux. Harry and Voldy will most probably die.

PS. Do you have the supposedly anonymously written e-book by Rowling which is a totally negative take after the final showdown. It's like something after the seventh book and its very very negative, but definitely written by Rowling. Its exactly her style. Its called "TYGER! TYGER!" And it's about the impact the final showdown has on the magic world and Hermione.

If Harry is indeed the last horcrux, he will have to sacrifice his life to make sure that Voldy dies. But if Harry dies, who then will kill Voldy? anyone other than Harry killing Voldy doesnt sound right at all.

anyway, there are many many interesting theories abt book 7. check some HP related communities on orkut for instance.

sometimes I wish I had not read all these theories.. what if some of them are true? book 7 wont be too much fun then :)
