Dumbledore is Death

...So says a new fan interpretation of the book “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”.  You know I love plot twists and alternate interpretations, so of course I think this is interesting.  J.K. Rowling even semi-endorsed it.

My alternate interpretation is that everything that happens to Potter after Voldemort kills him in the woods is imagined in the instant before he dies. (Dumbledore even says as much!)  It’s like “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”.   Dark Stuff.

Ok, so I’m just making that up to be funny. There’s actually no evidence to support it.  Still, it only goes to show you that you can make up alternate theories of anything that could possibly make for satisfying narratives.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
