I'm reading far too much into this

But I've decided that Harry Potter himself is the last Horcrux in which Voldemort has stored part of his soul.
 
The more I think about it, the more it makes sense. I was reading the second book (in French, get me) and I got to thinking. If Voldemort gave some of his powers to Harry accidentally while trying to kill him (eg the ability to speak Parseltongue, the fact that he can feel when Voldemort is happy or angry etc) then does that not mean that a part of Voldemort resides in Harry? We already know (I think) that Horcruxes can be living things - there was the snake with a funny name that I can't remember. One of the conditions of making a Horcrux was that someone had to be killed, which in this case would be Harry's mother. It makes sense to me that if someone was to split their soul it would weaken them incredibly for a time afterwards, and everyone knows that Voldemort disappeared after he failed to kill Harry... so what if he made Harry a Horcrux, either on purpose or accidentally? It would be a great way to end the series of books if to eliminate Voldemort Harry had to die, and would stop any temptations Rowling might have to keep writing after the seven books are over.
 
Yes, like I said, I'm reading far too much into this but it came to me in a flash of inspiration. Let me know what you think, I'm off back to my French class and the joyous subjunctive!

No i think your right i've been saying harry will have to die since the 3rd book! for similar reason but no quite as clever! mostly that she couldnt be bugged to right anymore books or be tempted to! but the hexcure thingy!!

I also think that his too friends will get married, so we might get a spin off series!!!

ah, that's a possibility... I was thinking that if anything we'd get the story of Harry's parents' time at Hogwarts, which would be fun.

could indeed be very fun, we'll end up with both how else is she gonna make money! dont think she can write about anything else, shes got obsessed with harry and his life, bit like tolkin and middle earth! and we all know he went of the right the history and bible of it!!

Thoughts have been had about the scar itself being it.

More thoughts have been had (not by me actually) about the possibilities of good old fashioned CPR being able to be used on victimes of the killing curse thus being able to kill Harry and then Voldemort and bring Harry back to life again.

Either people read more into it than you do or they watch too much Buffy, thus leading to the belief that all heros can be killed and brought back at will.

Hum

hmm now that's an interesting thought... but doesn't CPR only work in a minority of cases? (Or is that just me being sceptical because my first aid teacher had never succeeded in saving anyone with CPR, and he'd tried over 40 times)...

Yeah it is certainly not a failsafe technique. But as I said those are not my thoughts (although I like the scar idea). You have to remember I live over at LJ, home of Harry Potter fandom where people believe Harry is Gay and Hermione and Snape are made for each other.

*shudders*

I swear I should just stick to my friends list sometimes

You have just scarred me for life. I hope you're happy. :P
