Theory: In the prophecy it states that one must die at the hand of the other…which means Harry potter can never die because Voldmort is no longer around to kill him.
This one comes courtesy of Harry Potter uber-fan HP Wombat. So basically it wasn’t just that Harry was the only one who could kill Voldemort, Voldemort was the only one who could kill Harry as well. While Harry was just looking to kill Voldemort, Voldemort was looking to kill Harry and gain immortality. The worst part is Harry can no longer die, which means he will never be reunited with all of his loved ones in the afterlife. Better break out that Mirror of Erised. The OP even wraps it up with a nice little bow…Harry Potter is now and forever ‘The boy who lived.’ Way to make a positive phrase all kinds of devastating, OP. Sorry this wasn’t a really less grim one. But I promise the next one is!
I have really mixed feelings about John Green because a lot of times he uses his platform to tell his teenage readers good things they won’t hear from other people, and other times he says things that make me bury my head very very deeply in my palms
