This Devastating Harry Potter Fan Theory Will Completely Break You
Guys, get the tissues...
The Harry Potter films may have been over for a few years now, but fans are STILL picking apart JK Rowling's books to uncover new and wonderful and, in this case, really sad things.
An uber Potter fan has uncovered perhaps the most devastating thing about the wizarding saga, and you're going to need all the tissues and hugs.
According to the post, the scene with the Resurrection Stone has raised questions about the state of Remus Lupin and Sirius Black.
When Harry sees his deceased parents here, they're wearing the same clothes they are - and look as they did - when they died at the hands of Lord Voldermort all those years ago in 1981. Sniffle, sniffle.
So this tells us the stone shows us how someone looks when they pass away.
HOWEVER, Harry sees both Remus and Sirius here and notes how they look a lot younger and indeed different to how they were when he met them.
The book reads:
"Sirius was tall and handsome, and younger by far than Harry had ever seen him in life. He loped with an easy grace, his hands in his pockets and a grin on his face."
"Lupin was younger too, and much less shabby, and his hair was thicker and darker. He looked happy to be back in this familiar place, scene of so many adolescent wanderings."
So, what we reckon JK Rowling is saying is that Remus and Sirius, despite continuing to live in a physical sense, actually died on the inside the night Harry's parents were murdered. O.M.G.
Losing their two closest friends at the hands of Voldermort and learning of the betrayal from Peter Pettigrew (also a friend) would be enough for anyone to lose hope, but framing Sirius and sending him to prison and leaving Remus to think his mate has killed the Potter must've been too much for their character. These actions killed the essence of who they were. OK, more tissues, please.
We think this is the most devastating HP fan theory we've ever read - and there have been a few grim and really upsetting ones to say the least!
It'll be interesting to hear what the vocal writer has to say about all this. We're pretty sure she'll read it...
