The List

by Anita (akh), Jo Mears (Serenadust) and Pippin, with contributions from Lyn J. Mangiameli and Siriusly Snapey Susan

“Ah, what a tangled web we weave... Or in this case, what a tangled web Jo Rowling has woven. With one volume left to wrap up all the threads, we Harry Potter fanatics have created a list of all the sphinx-like comments, unfinished story lines, incomplete character trajectories and cryptic references to past events we would like to see resolved. While the following list is extensive, it is by no means comprehensive; we welcome any and all additions.

“I can't tell you that. . . .”

“Hint, hint. . . .”

Harry

The Trio

What will become of . . .

Whatever happened to . . .

Mysteries and Inconsistencies

Chekhov’s guns


“I can't tell you that. . . .”

“Hint, hint. . . .”

Harry

  • Quest for the Horcruxes
  • Bill and Fleur’s wedding
  • Visit to Godric’s Hollow, James’s and Lily’s graves
  • Final confrontation with Voldemort

The Trio

What will become of . . .

Whatever happened to . . .

Mysteries and Inconsistencies

Chekhov’s guns[*]

[*] A literary technique in which an item introduced early in the story is expected to figure significantly later on, though it may disappear for an interval: “If a gun hangs on the wall in the first act of the play, it must be discharged before the end.”
