Last night I hit a local bistro with one of my friends. While sports and fashion normally dominate our convos, we always find our way to the Harry Potter series.. and why not? Who doesn't love Potter.
While my friend is often to one to expose me to new details in the world of Potter, last night I beat him to the punch on a new detail.
This new theory discussed on the book nearly knocked him out his seat.
With my friend locked in, I started on my story:
"The latest interpretation has to do with “The Tale of the Three Brothers.” (For those who may have forgotten, the wizard fairy tale from Deathly Hallows about a trio of siblings who cheat Death.)
If you would like to see a visual interpretation of the story, I have placed a scene from the movie above.
"Readers have been comparing Harry, Snape, and Voldemort to the Peverells."Voldemort is the boastful oldest brother, Snape the long-lost-lovesick middle, and Harry the youngest."
But who is Death??
I had my friend by the ear now, he was locked in.
"I was on a site the other night and they had an interesting theory on who death is: Dumbledore," I said. "Wasn't he the one who met Harry at King's Cross? Wasn't Dumbledore behind the death of Snape and Voldemort?"
My best friend was HOT. He couldn't believe it.
Rather than argue with him, I said "go home and open the book."
"He gave Harry the cloak, didn't he?" I said. "Didn't he also have the wand and stone?"
After a bit of research, my friend called and said "My god, you may be right! Dumbledore may have been death!"
