Why wasn't Quirrel fired before he could get near the stone and nearly kill Harry? If Snape knew, Dumbledore must have.
And she would reply,If I could ask J.K. Rowling anything...
Well for starters I always thought Harry and Hermione would end up together because from books 1 - 5 it certainly seems like it and then book 6 came out and all it was was Harry's internal dialogue about a monster in his stomach every time Ginny was around! I was like 'What!? Since when has Ginny interested him in that way!?' I mean it was obvious that she went for the whole James and Lily concept again, but seriously! Why write 5 books that look to be going one way and then write the last two which don't make sense when it comes to the pairings? I mean, it seems more like Ron and Hermione hated each other the whole way through and then they suddenly love each other? I mean come on! Plus, Ginny had some weird obsession with Harry, I mean that would scare guys off, not have a random monster appear that needs its appetite satiated!
Okay...rant over. I would ask her these things...
This is one of the curses of the internet. It's fun to read others' speculations on how complex multi-part plots will turn out, but if one theory gets enough weight and seems credible enough, the author cannot then use it without it seeming a let-down -- whereas in the old days, one person or a small group of reading friends might feel chuffed that they had worked out the truth.When she found out someone on the Internet had speculated what her first choice would be she turned to use her second choice of ending.
