Benzion Chinn and the Deathly Hollows

Its Official, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows is coming out July 21, 2007. I have already ordered myself a copy so to all the 3.14159... admirers of mine, if you wish to give me something for my birthday, you will have to think of something else.
I don't think Harry is going to die. If I were going to kill him here is how I would do it. (I thought of this idea back in 2000, when I was reading Goblet of Fire.) What Avada Kedavra does is suck the lifeforce out of the person, causing them to drop dead, and into the one who says the curse. When Voldemort used the spell on Harry, all those years ago, he killed Harry. Except that, because Harry was protected by his mother's sacrifice, the spell rebounded back on Voldemort, taking his lifeforce and placing it within Harry. Harry had died. The reason why he is still alive is that he possesses Voldemort's lifeforce, which is why he has Voldemort's abilities. Because Harry lives on Voldemort's lifeforce, his life depends on Voldemort's continued existence. By destroying Voldemort, Harry will, in essence be sacrificing himself to save his friends.

I had a similar idea. I think Harry's scar is the last HorCrux and by defeating the evil forces and choosing goodness and banishing fear his scar will vanish.

Nice blog btw.
