*goes off to quickly read the end of SS before everybody else gets here*
Granted they also have more dangerous activities than muggles but it does seem that wizards don't mind a few magical or non-magical mishaps.
It struck me as odd that the Hogwarts administration would allow students to serve detention in the woods that are off limits and reportedly dangerous.
Also I wondered whether Dumbledore's final protection for the stone is really the mirror or is it Harry?
I think it was the mirror. if harry hadn't come along, I don't think Quireel would have gotten it
But knowing dumbledore a little more, maybe he was just curious to see how far Harry would go? Or maybe because he wanted to see what would happen.
I think that DD would have known he'd find it.
I am not saying that Harry would not have been in danger anyway but sometimes I think his elders do things that put him in more danger whether they intended it or not.
About the stone I guess DD did not intend any specific person to get the stone only that the person whose intention was not to use it so that would have automatically limited the finder to someone DD would feel he could trust.
Harry asks Dumbledore about Snape and Dumbledore says that he hated Harry's father and couldn't forgive him because he saved Snape's life- -this is sort of true but not entirely true given the entire series. Is this the first instance of D covering for Snape because he has agreed not to disclose his reasons for doing what he is doing?
Also in all of the challenges to get to the stone I realized I wished she had put a real logic puzzle for the potions challenge in the book. We just read that Hermione has figured it out which is not as fun.
The whole sequence of traps and puzzles leading to the Stone is one place in the books where readers really have to suspend disbelief -- I mean, basically the premise is that Hogwarts is safer than Gringotts, but the hiding place at Hogwarts can be breached by three bright first-year students, so how safe is that? I guess that's where the question of Dumbledore's intentions come in to play, and without it there wouldn't be much of a story.
ok, I'll shut up now.
(But it's a good book and we all love it.)
I will throw this out though, maybe he so focused on pleasing his master, to avoid being punished for failing, that he just did everything as fast as possible to just get this done (I'd also imagine a part of him wanted Voldy off his head as quickly as possible)
And I"m with all of you with the logic thing. I was so annoyed I couldn't do it, when I first read it I tried to sketch out the bottles to make it work, but gave up
1. I think the moment I truly fell in love with Harry was when he told Neville "You're worth 12 of Malfoy."
2. On a related note, I think I fell in love with Neville when he took on Crabbe and Goyle all by himself.
3. Harry feels like Snape is following him leading up to the second Quiddich match. Do you think he was?
4. He also thinks that sometimes it seems as if Snape could read minds. We now know he's a legilimens, do you think he did read Harry's mind some? How much do you think he knew about what Harry knew/suspected?
5. It struck me listening to the Quiddich match that at no point in the match do we get Harry's perspective. We are with Hermione and Ron for the entire match. Does that happen again? (Other than "The Riddle House", "The Other Minister", "Spinner's End" and the opening chapter of DH, which don't contain any of the three.) Usually if we see Ron and Hermione we see them from Harry's perspective, I found this digression from the norm intriguing.
I don't know why I had never noticed the Snape following Harry thing before. I think it makes sense even without knowing all we know from DH; we know that Snape was actively trying to protect Harry throughout this book, in particular at the Quiddich matches, so it would make perfect sense that Snape would keep an eye on him as often as possible, yet it took listening to truly notice this. I may have to get 3-7 on audio too (I already have CoS), I'm having some different insights this way.
Of course, he could have wrapped him in a cloak, put him in a box, then carried the "empty" box to the tower. But maybe he didn't think of it. Not the sharpest crayon in the box, that haggers.
Hermoine should have, though.
