well Becca, im not saying Harry is a horcrux, i was going along with the theory that he may be one.

Because w eodnt understand how to destroy a horcrux, other then stabbing it with a poison fang (CoS) im guessing that the thing which keeps the horcrux will need to be destroyed because Dumbledore isnt there to be careful and Harry will be in a hurry. Also, if say Harry is ahorcrux, can two souls survive in one body? me thinks not, look at OotP when Voldielocks possesed Harry, Voldie couldnt survive in Harry because his soul, his emoution and his heart were too powerful, now say he is a horcrux, could he take his time in destroying the horcrux part or would he sacrifice himself for the good of the wizarding world, trusting in another to take down Voldie? I think he'd trust someone else and chose to die, after all he shows many traits of Dumbledore and his MOTHER who died to save him.
Don't do that!

First, let us examine the prophecy that binds Harry Potter and Tom Riddle.

Quote:
"The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches... born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies... and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not... and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives... the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies..."


By the wording of the prophecy, we see that Harry Potter is the only one who can vanquish the dark lord. Harry Potter was already marked as the Dark Lord's equal by two ways: first, the lightning bolt scar on Harry's forehead, and second, by using Harry's blood in his ressurection. Therefore, it must be Harry that is mentioned in the prophecy. Not only is Harry Tom Riddle's equal, Harry also has a power that the Dark Lord knows not, for example, the power of love, friendship, and undying loyalty.

For the wording that says that "neither can live while the other survives," we see that Harry Potter still has a life to live afterwards. While Tom Riddle is still alive, Harry Potter cannot truly live his life, especially since he must always be aware of the dangers around him. Tom Riddle must always fight against Harry and can never reach his full potential.

Furthermore, Harry Potter follows the usual Campbell hero-journey cycle. At the end of the cycle, the hero, Harry Potter, will have to return to his home, whether in the magical or in the muggle world.

However, most importantly, the Harry Potter series is a children's book. It is mostly read for entertainment of young children in elementary to middle school. If Harry Potter's death is featured in the seventh book, its popularity would greatly fall. Children do not like reading about their heroes dying. Although the typical losses occured, such as Harry's mentors, which follows the hero's journey, the hero must survive for the series to be a competent children's novel.

These are actual examples from HE

after your initial post in a debate, then they can be smaller (but no smaller than 50 words, please!) you just need to make your point!
