unplottable_mod:
Harry's mood is: chipper chipper

Bring on the theories people! Most of our Mods have finished reading HBP, so bring on the observations and theories! Who knows, maybe Jo is really reading livejournal, and seeing as she does enjoy reading theories as reported on TLC.

Remember to check the HBP posting guidelines and use this handy pre-formatted templete:

<b>Theory/Observation</b>:
*<u><b>Author/Theorist</b></i>*:
<b>Character</b>(s) and/or <b>artifact</b> (s):
<b>Abstract/summary</b>: [Use a Cut Tag if longer than a paragraph]
<b>Supporting evidence</b>: (lj-cut all canon pg numbers, quotes, maps, links, etc.)
<b>Notes</b>: [lj-cut, if longer than a paragraph]

Warning of possible spoilers should also be under cut-tags and clearly marked.

Do not use invisible text instead or in conjunction with cut-tags.

USE TO CUT-TAGS ONLY


All posts should follow the guidelines set forth here on the info page.

PLEASE CITE YOUR QUOTES WHENEVER POSSIBLE!!!

And now, let's see what's buzzing in your heads:D
