Dumbledore's Plans

With everything else that's been going on (it's Spring!) I haven't had time to read all 7 yet, but if you're like me and you believe that Dumbledore has (at least somewhat) had a master plan all along, you should read this series of editorials on Mugglenet by Steve Connolly.

  1. Dumbledore's Master Plan:  Part One (A look at Dumbledore's days before Harry came to Hogwarts)
  2. Dumbledore's Master Plan:  Part Two (In the mind of the headmaster during Harry's first year at Hogwarts)
  3. Dumbledore's Master Plan:  Part Three (How much did he know about the Chamber of Secrets?)
  4. Dumbledore's Master Plan:  Part Four (The professor, the Prisoner, and the Patronus)
  5. Dumbledore's Master Plan:  Part Five (Who's planning now?)
  6. Dumbledore's Master Plan:  Part Six (Two plans culminate in a showdown)
  7. Dumbledore's Master Plan:  Part Seven (Snape, Spells, and Sacrifices)

I especially like the end of Part Seven:  "Dumbledore will only truly be departed from Hogwarts when none left are loyal to him. And fortunately for the rest of the world, Albus was survived by some very determined wizards who are extremely loyal to him, and fully capable of carrying out the remainder of his 'Master Plan.'"
