Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 33 Days

There are now only 33 days left until "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" hits theaters!  We are posting a quote from the first half of the book every day in celebration and to give us a chance to discuss and ponder the final book as it goes to film. Here is a special double quote for the weekend!

"NO!" roared Ron, causing Harry to jump into the hedge and Hermione (nose buried in a book at the tent entrance) to scowl over at them. "Sorry," said Ron, wrenching Harry back out of the brambles, "but the name's been jinxed, Harry, that's how they track people! Using his name breaks protective enchantments, it causes some kind of magical disturbance -- it's how they found us in Tottenham Court Road!"

"Just -- just to be clear," he said. "You want to leave Tonks at her parents' house and come away with us?"

"She'll be perfectly safe there, they'll look after her," said Lupin. He spoke with a finality bordering on indifference. "Harry, I'm sure James would have wanted me to stick with you."

"Well," said Harry slowly, "I'm not. I'm pretty sure my father would have wanted to know why you aren't sticking with your own kid, actually."

I wonder which James would have actually preferred. I’ve always just taken Harry’s word on it but has anyone really considered it, analyzing everything we know about James Potter? I’m not so sure that he would have chosen to stay with his kid; I suspect he felt frustrated in Godric’s Hollow and would’ve preferred to be getting rid of Voldemort (looking at the big picture of saving his kid that way). Hmm …

I think, in all honesty, James would have trusted Dumbledore, and Dumbledore wanted those three to go alone. In some ways, James would have wanted Harry to have the help, but he would have trusted the trio if he had met them. Lupin promised to be “bonded for life” to Tonks, and she deserved his love and protection.

Something that always bothered me was the furry little problem of LUPIN BEING A WEREWOLF! I never understood how he expected to accompany them without causing problems with his dangerous transformation during the full moon. He couldn’t be locked up becuase they only had a tent, and none of them knew how to make Wolfsbane. At the end of the day, I think Harry was right to stand up to him, even if he should have been kinder about it. Lupin needed to, as the movie-Ron put it “sort out his priorities.” :)

i definitely think james would have reacted how harry did, he’d be pissed at his friend for leaving a child, he’d give him tough love and make sure he stayed with his family

James would have sided with Harry, no question in my mind. He gave up his LIFE for there to be just a few more seconds to save his son. He was very young when he died, but he had matured well beyond how we saw him in the pensieve in book 5, otherwise Lily wouldn’t have married him.

I always thought hermione should have been able to do some sort of jinx that caused them to go temporarily mute or something if they tried to say “voldemort,” sort of like the sneak pimples that she gave Marietta, but less permanent, or like moody’s tongue-tie curse for snape. I know, must hermione do everything? Well, yeah, kinda…

Lupin….hmm, there is so much to say about his character. most of the time i like/love him and pity him for all that he goes through. However, it is times like these in the books that i get annoyed and frustrated with him…sometimes he just doesnt get it.

poor lupin. I felt so bad for him at this part and during Tonks and his romance. He must feel so guilty for something he can’t help.

This was a definite opportunity to show the maturity of Harry, Lupin did need some tough love at this time, and Harry was able to provide it.

I get that Lupin’s afraid of being a father, but thinking of leaving Tonks for good? Quite stupid.

Guess That Book

...by the time she had interpreted Harry's dreams at the top of her voice (all of which, even the ones that involved eating porridge, apparently foretold a gruesome and early death), he was feeling much less sympathetic toward her.
