*laughs* Great video of Daniel Radcliffe being asked about the little tidbit into his fate that Jo gave him after taking him and his parents out to dinner after seeing Equus (speaking of which, there are plans to bring it to Broadway with both him and Richard Griffiths...also, HP6 has started filming):

If you haven't read Deathly Hallows yet, don't follow these links until you do (unless you're interested in all the post-story stuff and not caring much about spoilers).

Three. The first post-DH fic that I've seen. "Three" details the three funerals of the four major deaths in that final set of battles. Absolutely beautiful and breathtaking.

THE web-transcript with Jo. Jo answers manymanymanymany post-Epilogue questions from fans, and a few other nagging things (like the matter of the person who would do magic "late in life"--she changed her mind by Book 3, and so the person never actually existed. Ha.). We hear more professions and more families made. Also, for all the Hufflepuffs out there, she details the Hufflepuff dormitories, what Dudley possibly saw when he saw the Dementors and how that may have sparked how he was in the seventh book, what event triggered each horcrux, Dumbledore's boggart, how muggleborns get magic, how a couple of the deaths we didn't get to "see" in battle occured, and a LOT of other things. She also said to keep on eye on her site because she'll work on posting more answers over time.

I started with actual plot speculation, but realized I need to reread before I do any of that.'s release speculation. The books have been released in a pretty predictable pattern:

* Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (June 26, 1997)
* Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (July 2, 1998)
* Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (September 8, 1999)
* Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (July 8, 2000)
* Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (June 21, 2003)
* Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (July 16, 2005)
* Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (release date TBA)

I just researched Book 6 and found the following (because I'm terrible at remembering, even though I've been following this stuff since between Books 4 and 5):

The title was released in June 2004 and an "I'm done!"/release date message of June 21st was given on December 20th--so the title was out a full year before the book; however, this was also a working title of Book 2, so it's one she'd been mulling for years, and this was the perfect opportunity to use it--she knew what was going to happen with Snape, and Snape's old Potions book was playing a role in the story pretty much from the get-go. With Book 7 she's been mulling three different titles for months now, and just released it--this is a major book, and I don't think that a title would be settled upon a full six or seven months before she finished writing it. Also, as a few people have caught, she's mentioned on her site about how now she's writing scenes that have been in her head, in some cases, for over a decade and how that likely implies major scenes near the end. I think all of this leads to a near enough release date. I'm guessing that she'll finish writing around February or March and that we'll have a Fall 2007 release. This will also give the Movie 5 release hype (since it's coming out in July) time to die out before the book is released (I'll say another early September release), and won't be too near all the holiday hype.
