Snape is the Half-Blood Prince. I’m basing this on two things: The cover of the ‘Adult’ book in the UK has a potions book on the cover, and I honestly like Snape. Yeah, he’s an asshole, but if he was this ‘prince’ … He’s poor, which means he’s unlikely to be a Pure Blood, and we’ve never heard tell of his family, which makes me think he’s an orphan like Harry or he separated from his family early. Prince/Pauper. It could work.
Molly Weasley dies. Someone, a main character, dies, this we know. Molly’s always worried about it being someone else, so I think it would be poignant (and painful) if it was her. Of course, it could be Dumbledore, but I hope not.
Someone in the Order of the Phoenix will be the Minister of Magic. If, at the end of this book, we have a full scale Wizard War, then they need a Phoenix in Office.
Snape will teach Dark Arts. Again, War. He knows his shit.
Ginny will date someone, I want to say Harry, but that might be too obvious. Hermione and Ron will hook up, I hope. Other than that, I really don’t care much. Well, except if McGonnagall wants to convert to Judaism, call me! I love her.
Harry will be the Quidditch captain (I wrote Ron originally, but no). They need new beaters and chasers. Two of the girls are staying on (Katie and Ginny). The beaters should be people we know, and I’m just not sure who.
