FANFARE FANFARE! THERE’S A NEW HARRY POTTER THEORY AND IT’S HELLA DARK!
That’s right. Your eyes do not deceive you! Someone out there whose room must look like this…
has made a new theory because it’s been like two days since we heard the last one but, be warned, it is mad heavy!
1. In Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, Harry becomes obsessed with a mirror.
The mirror detaches you from reality, showing you what you most desire.
The theory argues that this is where Harry actually spends the rest of his time, for the next SIX books.
2. Hogwarts is actually a dangerous psychiatric prison.
It is locked with few people allowed to leave and is filled to the brim with incredibly dangerous things. Moving staircases, three headed dogs, talking paintings, and ghosts… all of which have “ordinary” explanations.
3. Harry murdered Cedric.
Cedric is the ideal. He’s the perfect boy and everything Harry wanted to be. He is killed by Harry’s alter-ego, Voldemort, who is the projection of his rage and fury. Harry tells everyone it was Voldemort and believes it was, as he was the only person to see it happen.
4. The Dursleys are Harry’s real parents.
The Potters are imaginary. The Dursleys are his real, abusive parents. The abuse is what is making him delusional. One day Harry snaps and attacks his brother, Dudley, as he is clearly favoured by his parents. Following this, Dudley has to have repeated hospital visits to treat his ailment. Harry believes that a pig tail has sprouted from Dudley’s behind, and the attack is the reason he is sent to Hogwarts.
5. Harry and Voldemort are the same person.
Links between Harry Potter and Tom Riddle have been drawn many times in the past. Same wand, both orphaned, etc… Harry has increasing visions of Voldemort and even shares his thoughts, which shows that Voldemort is just a figment of Harry’s diseased mind. Snape, trying to strengthen Harry’s mind, is a doctor, trying to treat him.
6. Harry knows he’s in an asylum.
In the Half-Blood Prince, when Dumbledore visits Riddle, hew says that he’s going to take him to a special school, for children just like him. Riddle knows that he is going to be taken to a psychiatric asylum and doesn’t want to go.
7. Harry’s meeting with Dumbledore in the last book.
“Tell me one last thing,” said Harry. “Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?”
Dumbledore beamed at him, and his voice sounded loud and strong in Harry’s ears even though the bright mist was descending again, obscuring his figure.
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean it is not real?”
So there you have it. Perhaps the most tenuous, yet twisted theory we’ve heard so far. Nonetheless, it’s all just a bit of fun to pick at them and debate.
GO THEORY MAKERS… whoever you are?
