Peter Pettigrew

I just finished Harry Potter and the Prizoner of Azkaban (the 3rd) for the millionth time probably and I caught something that I had never thought seriously about. In the last chapter, Harry and Dumbledore are talking about how Harry saved Peter Pettigrew's life, and how he regretted it because of Professor Trewlawney's prediction. Dumbledore said,
"Pettigrew owes his life to you......When one wizard saves another wizard's life, it creates a certian bond between them..."

Harry then says,
"I don't want a connection with Pettigrew! He betrayed my parents!"

Now this is the big thing I am trying to show you... Dumbledore now says,
"This is magic at its deepest, its most impenetrable, Harry. But trust me...the time may come when you will be very glad you saved Pettigrew's life." (pg. 427)

Could this come about in the 7th? Is this really going to be a significant ordeal? I am really wondering if JK Rowling knew from this point, and planned in the 7th for Pettigrew to have a major role...Interesting eh?

In case you haven't caught on...I am among the BIGGEST Harry Potter fan around. I check daily for updates on anything Harry Potter. Lovely waste of time, I know, but I can't help it! I love the story. In case you aren't aware, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows comes out in 35 days. This is the final of the series, the end.

Feel free to comment on your opinion of what I have said. I just love reading the books after you've read the latest. They reveal so much you never realized before.

By the way, I got a new swimsuit from Down East Outfitters. I LOVE IT!

Uh...I am also a huge Harry Potter fan, and I check the leakycauldron website all the time...there is no shame in it! Great now I need to read 3 again so I can comment on what you said. I just read 5 and 6 again, but haven't read 3 in awhile. Thanks for giving me a reason to bust it out! HP rules and I cannot even wait until the book comes out! I seriously freaked out when i saw the picture on your gave me chills!

Oh, and congrats on the swimming suit!

I agree, I think it will come as a saving grace for him at some point in the next book.

I am already having harry withdrawls.

Sorry I haven't been writing. Amy and I have been busy de-junking my house. She is really good at it. Anyhow, I love your blog and I have thought about that Peter thing so many times. I agree with Mom that it will probably come as a saving grace eventually. You know though, the last time I read all the books (about a month ago) I kept noticing how often Dumbledore talks about love being the strongest kind of magic and how Voldemort doesn't get that. I'm thinking that's got to be a huge part of the last book. I love you!
