Wait, did the Azkaban prisoner announce Dumbledo’s death?
A fan theory certainly thinks so …
Another day, another Harry Potter fan theory. This time alone, it’s pretty big news because we seem to have lost a massive trace of Dumbledo’s death.
According to Mynameisdavid23 Tumbler, JK Rowling announced Dumbledo’s death three books earlier. Prisoner of Azkaban – We just missed an obvious clue.
In the third book in the Harry Potter series, Professor Trelawny refuses to sit down for Christmas dinner because there are already 12 people around the table. Although this may seem like a wonderful behavior, the woman said her reasons: “When 13 people have dinner together, the first one to get up will die.” So he was really conscious, you know?
But according to mynameisdavid23, it was too late. In one Tumblr message he wrote:
“I’ve been rereading HP books and reached out to Azkaban Prisoner (my heart is still pounding, it’s still the best) and at Christmas there are only 12 people around the dinner table. Trelawny comes and Dumbledore gets up to draw a chair.
“She’s terrified, I don’t need to! When 13 people have dinner together, whoever gets up dies first !!!!!
“Ron had Scabbers in his pocket.
“That means there weren’t 12 people when Trelawny arrived. They were already 13.
“And Dumbledore stood up.”
We know. Proud of the mind.
The only problem with this theory is that there is no mention in the book whether Scabbers was in Ron’s pocket at the time. However, it was quiet in many other chapters, so it’s not a far-fetched theory.
What’s more, it’s not the only time Rule 13 has announced the death of a character. In the Order of the Phoenix, Sirius is the first to rise from a 13-person table in the ministry with his unbalanced cousin with his unbalanced cousin a month before he ends his ministry (and we all know how that ended).
Later, after the death of Alastor Moody, Remus Lupine is the first to stand in Weasley’s house in a room full of 13 people. No wonder that poor old teacher Lupine was biting the dust at the Battle of Hogwarts.
We know there may be a stretch considering that Scabbers didn’t really know where he was that night, but it seems too coincidental when you also consider the deaths of Remus and Lupine.
And if so? It seems that mynameisdavid23 can give Professor Trelawney his money for his inventions …
