My personal prediction for how Harry Potter will end.

The end is drawing near for the Harry Potter series and with ten days left until the release of the final book I thought I'd throw my hat into the 'what happens' ring.

Let's examine the legendary prophecy:

  • 'THE ONE WITH THE POWER TO VANQUISH THE DARK LORD APPROACHES...BORN TO THOSE WHO HAVE THRICE DEFIED HIM, BORN AS THE SEVENTH MONTH DIES... AND THE DARK LORD WILL MARK HIM AS HIS EQUAL, BUT HE WILL HAVE POWER THE DARK LORD KNOWS NOT... AND EITHER MUST DIE AT THE HAND OF THE OTHER FOR NEITHER CAN LIVE WHILE THE OTHER SURVIVES... THE ONE WITH THE POWER TO VANQUISH THE DARK LORD WILL BE BORN AS THE SEVENTH MONTH DIES...'

Many people on the Internet have analyzed this paragraph over and over. Most of them end up with the conclusion that Harry and Voldemort are the only participants in the aforementioned text. This is where my theory comes into play:

'The Hand of the Other' in the referenced prophecy is in fact, Wormtail. So there it is. That's my theory. My prediction is that Peter Pettigrew's life debt will somehow come into play and will be a defining factor in helping Harry defeat his arch nemesis. He after all, has a silver hand, a very distinctive way to separate him in the prophecy (hand of the other - given to him by Voldemort in Book 4). Whether Harry lives or kicks the bucket is still up for grabs. I have a feeling that this will come into some play somehow to greatly effect the outcome of the story. This theory seems like a clever trick and play on words that is on par with J.K. Rowling's writing style. Feel free to debunk me if you feel otherwise, that's why we have comments here.

Edit: this same theory is apparently popular amongst many Harry Potter fan sites. So there you go, we shall see in ten days time.
