With the Harry Potter special coming up on Jan 1, I had some fun scrolling through the old Dope threads that emerged when the books were published. I was less interested in reliving any excitement, more interested in reading predictions and takes unsullied by advance knowledge. The Half-Blood Prince thread in particular has a lot of interesting speculation on Snape and Horcruxes, some of it dead-on, some of it wildly off.
Anyway, thought it was better to create a new thread than bump much older ones. The two linked below had the most speculative content; older threads were either short or based on movies.
I’m still annoyed that the Ravenclaw horcrux wasn’t a wand. I mean, the horcruxes corresponding to the other three Houses were a coin-shaped object, a sword, and a cup: What’s the fourth member of that set?
