Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 43 Days

DH Film

There are now only 43 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 today's quote!

Gregorovitch burst into the room at the end of the passage and his lantern illuminated what looked like a workshop; wood shavings and gold gleamed in the swinging pool of light, and there on the window ledge sat perched, like a giant bird, a young man with golden hair. In the split second that the lantern's light illuminated him, Harry saw the delight upon his handsome face, then the intruder shot a Stunning Spell from his wand and jumped neatly backward out of the window with a crow of laughter.

I’m listening to the audio book while in car. I plan on re=reading DH again at least once before the movie.
I love the enthusiasm of everyone on this site. Really cool.

I too always wondered how Voldemort (and other wizards and witches as well) learned/invented their own spells…I know that he is a very intelligent person, but it seems like so many things can wrong with magic, especially if you aren’t sure what is going to happen when you invent a spell or potion. Same with Fred and George…how do they come up with the ideas to create all the snackboxes and such?

We don’t see or hear very much about him, but I really am fascinated by Grindelwald as one of the many characters who is set up as a contrast to the pure evil of Voldemort. He was a horrible murderer in his day, but Grindlewald did feel remorse at the end – may be had a horcrux and was put back to right before he died?

JK is amazing at imagery! You can see what’s happening so clearly.

I can’t wait to see the characters like Grindelwald and even Gregorovitch. This will be awesome. But Voldemort killed the guy……….sadly.

I found that surprising. Who knew Gregorovitch would actually be able to repent for what he’d done.

i still can’t believe dumbledore was friends with gindelwald. ive always seen dumbledore as an innocent, gentle, kind human being, who always believed in what was right. then again sometimes you’re not always sure what is right, and he thought that what he was doing was for the greater good, so gellert had him brainwashed to think that what they were doing was right. but we shouldnt be judging dumbledore by his past, because he now knew that what he did was wrong, and ends up making up for it with all the good he ends up doing. i guess you can say he learned from past experiences that what someone else thinks is “for the greater good” doesnt always mean so. so he went with his own instincts and is now loved by everyone, well until skeeter wrote that biography about him. she is a horrible woman, who loves to destroy the reputations of others.

Oh, no! I totally had forgotten about this scene. Is it Grindelwald in the window and what did he take?
