Wow, you didn’t think that Harry was a Horcrux? Interesting… C and I had arguments with others before the book came out – we both strongly believed that he was.

Oh, and did you happen to notice that Lily’s birthday is shared by another wonderful, noble individual? =0)

Odette wrote a comment on July 26, 2007

Haha! I remember thinking it out and it made some sense to me, but I thought I could account for all the Horcruxes without Harry being one. Plus, I didn’t figure Harry could stop being a Horcrux without dying, and I didn’t want him to die.

Oh well, no points for me on that one!

Awww, that’s really lovely that you share a birthday with Lily. Sad to say, I was too fixated on the death date to notice…
