How will Harry and LV be able to fight each other?
« on: June 24, 2004, 12:55:12 PM »

How will Harry and LV be able to fight each other? Their wands won't fight each other because they are brother wands, and one will end up forcing the other one to replay its last spells, like they did in GoF.
Anyone have any theories on how they will fight? Or maybe they won't fight?

Oh, I completely forgot about that Angelina!  :D Ho-hum...so it can't be magical...or else they'll have to take turns, but hopefully Harry goes first.  :laugh:

In reality, I bet they'll be forced to do with w/o magic...like Muggle war...hmmm....or else, one will have to give in, or something like that...just out of curiousity, do Patronuses block spells?  ???

I'm not sure how they'll do that...well, one wand will end up being stronger than the other...last time it was Harry's and hopefully it'll be Harry's in the end of the 7th book, and Harry will manage to finally defeat Lord Voldemort. Or he won't.... *shudders*

This would also be a great conversation in The Final Match...

Just because their wands can't fight each other doesn't mean that it can't be magical.  One can still kill the other by magic, they just can't turn their wands on each other at the same time

Sorry.  Doesn't really answer the question, but I just wanted to point out a logical loophole, there.

*points to quote*

or else they'll have to take turns, but hopefully Harry goes first.  :laugh:

But the thing is, how are they going to do that? Distract the other or something? Because one of them isn't going to put their wand down and let the other take their turn to do a spell...unless one of them gets distracted by something else going on, and the other can do Avada Krevada or something else on them...

You know how in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, the memories of those who Voldemort killed came out to "haunt" him? Perhaps it'll happen again and that'll distract Lord Voldemort just long enough for Harry to finish him off. What do you think?

On JKR's website, she said she chose the language of the prophecy very carefully.  What could that suggest in terms of the final battle and how it happens?

She siad in the prophecy that neither can live while the other survives. But that makes no sense, since they're both alive throughout book five. Unless Voldemort isn't alive properly?

I've wondered the same thing, honestly.  To take it a step further, LV has never been "dead."  He's been spirit rather than body, but that's different from dead.

But then again, he hasn't really been alive.  At least ... not until the end of book four. Even then, it wasn't REALLY alive, not like .. you know, alive as in you are born, live, and then die.

And Harry's not exactly having a life, either. I mean, not a normal one.

Yes, but that's quibbling at some point.  She's gone to some lengths to say that LV didn't die, so we can't totally say he hasn't been alive, even if it's not a bodily life.

*sigh* When does the next book come out? I don't know that we'll be able to figure it out 'til the series is done.
