Leaky's Daily Quotedown to Deathly Hallows: 90 Days

There are now only 90 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's today's quote!

"So this time, when you leave, there'll be no going back, and the charm will break the moment you get outside its range. We're choosing to break it early, because the alternative is waiting for You-Know-Who to come and seize you the moment you turn seventeen."
    -Mad-Eye Moody 
-Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, "The Seven Potters"

Finley, Snape couldn’t have let the rest of the Order in on the plan. (a) They wouldn’t have trusted him (least of all Moody). (b) Snape didn’t know whether he could trust them. And even if they were all trustworthy (even Mundungus?), none of them could practise Occlumency as he did, so LV could have found out about it. That’s what I think, anyway!

I wonder if, in the movie version, all the major deaths that occur “offscreen” in the book (Moody, Lupin, Tonks) will occur onscreen. It must be hard for the filmmakers to resist – even though in this case it would dilute the painful tension of the scene back at the Burrow where everyone is waiting. Maybe Bill and Fleur will bring the news, then we’ll see Moody’s last battle in flashback – that would work for me.

You are right, it would be hard for the filmmakers to resist having some good fight scenes – especially Moody vs Deatheaters (in the air). But how on earth are they going to get it all in without losing the over-all feeling of the film?

Everyone, at some point in their lives, has to “jump off the cliff”. As a fan, I appreciated seeing Harry do the same thing. It wasn’t any easier for him than for us.

Alas, poor Moody. A real shocker for me when he died. But then again, you never know with the last book in any series. The author has ultimate cosmic powers over the whole thing, as they should. They can kill anyone off, a shame they must prove this theory so often… R.I.P. Moody.

Problem: How do The Wesley boys find 4 Privet Drive in Chamber of secret when the charm prevents him from being found? Or even Mr Wesley in Goblet, or the Dementors or Mad-Eye and his resuce squad in Order or even Dumbledore in Half-blood. A strong blood charm such as this would prevent all these contacts.

Moody was one of the the most unexpected deaths in Harry Potter. It was just so… sad. :(

I think the moment that Hedwig then died and then realizing that Mad Eye Mood y was dead I knew nothing and no one was safe. It made me really think, “Oh, my gosh! No one is safe. Could Harry really die too at the end?”

*flinthutch, go back to OotP, chap 37. The charm was to protect Harry only from Voldemort (and by extension his Deatheaters), not everyone else. Dumbledore says “While you can still call home the place where your mother’s blood dwells, there you cannot be touched or harmed by Voldemort.” The charm was never meant to prevent friends from finding him.
