Harry Potter Poll: the Deadly Hallows Cover art.

I was in holland again and I missed the new cover art for Harry Potter and The Deadly Hallows.

here is a very image heavy click for the cover art, it's huge

and here is another piece of art which I found in amanuensis 's journal where she wonders if it's wandless magic. She's got a good point there, as Harry can do magic without a wand, only up until now he couldn't do it intentionally.

Notice in these drawings Harry has a locket and no wounds in the 'Arena' scene and Harry lost the locket but is wounded and alive in the cover art.

Poll #957236 Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallows

In book Seven this will happen:

Harry and Voldemort will go trough the veil.
Harry will bring Sirius back (possiby dead but hopefully alive).
Dobby will guide Harry, Ron and Hermione into Gringotts.
Sirius's vault will lead to clues.
Harry's own vault will be visited by the three of them.
The purple and green dress robes are part of the graduation but Harry didn't go back to Hogwarts.
The gold and jewells belonged to Voldemort's treasures.
There's a secret treasure in Hogwarts, possibly in the Chamber of Secrets.
Voldemort uses inferi against Harry while Harry gets help from the memories of Voldemort's victims (as from prior incantatem)
Harry will look for Voldemort instead of Voldemort trying to find Harry.
Dobby will use elf magic against Death Eaters.
Hermione will uncover something unknown about Hogwarts and Cedric Gryffindor.
Harry survives, because he lost the locket but has bruises in the cover art and isn't bruised but wears a locket in the meeting with Voldemort.
Harry dies, because JK Rowling wouldn't give away such a clue if it were true.
Prongs will save Harry at the very last moment.

Why is Harry wearing a locket?

The Slytherin locket has more than one use, Harry uses it in his advantage.
The Slytherin locket is to be used in a negotation with Voldemort to buy someone free.
Harry is only leading Voldemort on, it's the fake locket.
The Slytherin locket is stolen back from where R.A.B. has hidden it and Voldemort is after it too.
The Slytherin locket was the key to a Slytherin secret.
The Slytherin locket is the final horcrux and Harry doesn't know how to destroy it, so he wears it to keep it safe.

Since Voldemort has the horcruxes he can walk in and out the veil without dying. Harry bargains that he will give the locket back if Voldemort brings Sirius back.

Brilliant, why didn't Harry think sooner about this?
Hermione can mention at least twelve flaws in this plan.
Sirius will be dead anyway, if it takes a horcrux to survive the veil.
Obviously Harry wouldn't risk his life for Sirius like that, or so Snape hopes.
I shouldn't joke about such grave moments in Harry's life.

Thank you if you took the poll, I really appreciate it.

This is reposted because the previous poll was hexed.

I'm not convinced it's a locket. I think it's one of those leather money pouches, only he's wearing around his neck instead of attached to his trousers. Atop the "locket" there is what looks like the typical bunching of leather from being tied closed. And it's brown like leather.

Hmmm (thinks hard) very true, it could be something else, what about a time turner? Maybe they didn't destroy all of the time turners in the department of mysteries, maybe one of them was on loan or there was one in a vault somewhere?

Could be.
Could be anything. Could be nothing. *g*
Could be just a simple family heirloom locket that he might have found in his mother's things in the attic at 4 Privet drive—a picture of his Mum and Dad.

Fun poll. I don't think we'll be seeing or hearing from Sirius in DH, despite however much nearly every reader wants to. Come on, JKR! What's wrong with a snark/posthumous!Sirius?

Hermione will uncover something unknown about Hogwarts and Cedric Gryffindor.

I think you made a typo there. Although it would be an interesting twist! ;)

I didn't answer the locket question because I don't think it's a locket. Or, it could be, but the artwork does not scream "locket" it screams cloth bag filled with stinky protective herbs" or something, lol.

I hadn't thought about other options, but it makes sense. It could be a lot of things, I should have left that open.

Uhmm...About the locket, if it *is* a locket (XD) I think it's more "Harry Potter-like" that he's wearing it because he forgot to put it off (or didn't have time, or something like that) and PUFF, this fact turns out to be very fortunate and helps Harry in his battle. when we're talking about Harry, it's alla about carelessness and fortunate turn of events :D

I know I already commented, but I've been thinking about this question:

Since Voldemort has the horcruxes he can walk in and out of the veil without dying. Harry bargains that he will give the locket back if Voldemort brings Sirius back.

Voldemort wouldn't be able to go come back from the veil. He would die and someone would have to do the whole graveyard potion again, using a different Horcrux. Harry COULD trick him into doing this, to buy more time to find the rest of the Horcruxes without a walking, talking, actual Voldemort in the way, but Voldemort is probably aware of this.

Too true, there'd be a slithering Voldemort 'essence' coming out of the veil and Harry would be sorry he didn't get Sirius back. I'm glad you came back to mention this, I wouldn't have thought of it, thanks :)

Thank you for the link to to high-res pic! Only now did I notice the elf, presumably Dobby, and it annoys me severly :S The immage of the stag is also unerving, but perhaps it's dimply Harry's partonus? Still, at least now I'm prepared :)
