"Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince."



Rowling made the announcement on her Web site, JKRowling.com, although it took some knowledge of her site by dedicated fans to reveal the title. The path to find the title was explained on a fan's site, WizardNews.com, and was confirmed Tuesday by her literary agent/

aw man, I was waiting for something clever and sarcastic from you Siv, and here you are, just tellin us the truth.....how dare you sir ! :p

I personally think it might be better if they call it "Half Blonde Prince" and get Brad Pitt to play Harry from now on......

They should do something different with the series like make Harry drop out of wizard school and become a standup comic.

That's a pretty crappy title - it doesn't flow well, or sound intersting. :(

:o Don't suppose there's any news on WHEN we can expect this book :(

I think the title sounds neat though :)


Edit - It says on that site that Rowling has confirmed that the half-blood prince is neither Harry NOR Voldemort :eek: WHO IS IT?

Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince


Honestly, how does that title not match the flow OR feel of the other titles?

J.K. Rowling explains the hoax confusion and confirms that the title of book 6 is Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, and also says that the Half Blood Prince is not Harry or Voldemort.

The half-blood prince is Colin Creevey!

>_>

<_<


Hmm I'll guess seriously later though. The Half-Blood Prince does sound pretty good... now all I need to do is wait for the book!

It's not of anything.
1. The stone is of the sorcerer
2-5 something of something.

The prince is Percy, he's really adopted.

When I heard Half-blood Prince, I thought she meant Hagrid.

And I agree with Jokemaster, it doesn't sound right because it doesn't have any wording that suggests possession. Sorcerer's Stone, Prisoner of Azkaban, Order of the Phoenix, The Half-life Blood Prince. Doesn't fit in.

Besides, each title had a mystical quality to it. Sorcerer's Stone; sorcerer is magical. Chamber of Secrets; suggests some chamber filled with secrets. Prisoner of Azkaban; a prisoner from the most dangerous Prison in the world. Goblet of Fire; it's a goblet filled with fire. Order of the Phoenix; The Phoenix was a magical creature that would die and then regenerate itself. Half-Blood Prince..it sounds like some bad rap title. :p

*drumrolls*

The Half-Blood prince is Hermione, because she's bi! :rolleyes:


ewwww bad thought.

jokemaster: I don't seem to remember anywhere in the books where it says Percy is adopted. Is this your conclusion?

It's my conclusion because he is very different from the other Weasleys.

Don't you feel SMART now.

Half-life blood prince...:p


I really don't see anything wrong with the title, but you all can cry if you wish. Hagrid is the only one I can think of, because he's one of the few that's refered to as half-blood, as he's a half-giant.

Wizards with mixed muggle/wizard parentage are refered to as mudblood or mixed blood. At least....that's what I remember.

Harry will go on a muggle rampage, thats my bet.

Stupid title, but then again whats in a name except a few letters...of which some can be capital letters, or maybe numbers and characters...and maybe some effects nevermind

jokemaster
06-30-2004, 10:29 PM
....Or it may be a completely new character, like Prisoner of Azkaban wasn't someone already introduced.

I won't touch that rap part because I would be banned.


Ahem... moving on.


Harry is a mudblood, though many fail to remember, or just don't care. The other qualities of Harry, his scar, his history, are more interesting to the wizard world than his mudblood.

The ministry had been ragging on Harry the entire fricking 5th book. Lets see how they handle He who must not be named.

Percy Weasley, I doubt he will come back to his family, and it would make a great turnaround if he became a DeathEater or something like that... Hell, he may be the key to Voldemort inside the Ministry of Magic.

I doubt Percy Weasley is adopted, he is alot like Bill, hi marks, etc.
The only difference about him is that he is willing to stake everything for success, whereas the rest of the Weasley's have just been the opposite, caring for others.

harry is a half blood because both his parents were magical, but one of those parents was a mudblood (lilly)
a mudblood is someone who has muggle parents, like lilly & hermione.
thats how i understand it anyway.

That still makes Harry a full blood though, since both of his parents were magical. A Half-blood is someone who has a wizard or witch as one parent, and a muggle for the other. Hence why Hagrid is a half-giant.

Even if you did include Lily's parents, that still makes Harry a 1/4th muggle.

speaking of that it could be Hagrid. He is half blood (well he could practice magic, or at worst he is half blood of giant, half man :D) would put an intresting spin of things.

bugger ET put that (only noticed when looking for a quote to make some one look stupid :()

this is from an interview with JK Rowling...

i also saw this on a fan site...

pureblood - a witch or wizard of 'pure' wizarding ancestry, without any Muggle ancestors whatsoever as far as can be determined

half-blood - at least one wizarding parent or at least one Muggle parent or grandparent

Muggle-born wizarding person born of two Muggle parents
(A foul, nasty name for Muggle-born is Mudblood)




interesting enough, harry potter and the half-blood prince, was actually the working title for chamber of secrets.

Harry WILL die. I dunno how to add spoiler tags, so look below. Here's the rumor:











































































































































Harry will eventually discover that to kill Voldemort, he has to kill himself. So he did, and his noble sacrifice enabled him to be alive again.

Ermm, so you mean, he died, and was resurrected? Do not forget that it is impossible for resurrection to happen in JK Rowling's world. Remember what Dumbledore said.
