It's Harry Potter Friday, and this week we read The Tales of Beedle the Bard. I'm blogging from my iPad because my computer's out sick with a virus, so please pardon whatever weirdness results.
I'd never read this before, and I LOVED it. That said, this'll be a short one.
First, a question about the symbols on the Fountain of Fair Pleasure:
Pardon the fuzzy. We've got, from top to bottom, a fish-type-looking-thing, Omega, an eye, and the Deathly Hallows symbol. That's all got to be super significant, right? Any guesses? Maybe we need to know more about runes. Maybe we need Hermione.
And then (big fat spoiler for the next book), I might just need to read the book again, but isn't Harry alive at the end of all this because of the resurrection stone? So shouldn't he be a spooky shade of a person? Or no, because he had all three and was actually the Master of Death? (End of big fat spoiler.)
Lots, lots of Aberforth lovin' goats references around these parts.
