HP Moment of the Week - Trelawney's Prophecies

I haven't been a part of this meme in ages and I honestly don't know why. I mean, who doesn't love Harry Potter? (Weird people, is the answer to that.) And who wouldn't love to post about it regularly? So, I'm back on the HP train, so to speak. Harry Potter Moment of the Week is hosted by the lovely Leah over at Uncorked Thoughts. This week's question is:

Favourite Trelawney prophecy?

I remember how ridiculous I thought she was until we found out she had made THE Prophecy and when I read how Umbridge treated her, which was the final straw for me in regards to that woman. Also, Emma Thompson is an all-time favourite so that definitely helped the character. Ok, let's get back to the question.
How can I not go for the main one? I mean, as far as prophecies go that one is pretty epic and impressive.
"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 [...] "
Chills, I tell you! What I loved about Trelawney was that in her Rowling showed that even the person whom you think is least connected to his/her surroundings can be absolutely crucial. Go J.K. Rowling!

Although I have a feeling that this might be a very popular choice this week I'm still going to ask. Which prophecy did you go with?


  1. I picked the same one and YES I even mentioned the chills!! How could you not?! When we finally learn the words to the prophecy, it's such a defining moment for Trelawney...AND the series as a whole! Awesome pick^^

  2. I love this meme! Why am I not participating in this meme?! I love the prophecy you picked! I love everything about the Harry Potter series though. ;) Great choice!
