Deathly Hallows, Chapter Five

Normally when I read the Harry Potter books I skim over the chapter titles as I’m reading; after all, we rarely have enough information to guess what the chapter title might be referring to until we’re well into the chapter (and I’m sure Rowling planned it that way deliberately). But in this case, another deliberate plan of Rowling’s creates quite a scary scenario: as Harry falls to the ground at the end of chapter four, he sees Hagrid lying spread-eagled and still on the ground below him. Then on the next page begins another chapter titled: ‘Fallen Warrior.’ Hagrid isn’t dead, but we’re certainly meant to think he might be. Nobody is safe any more!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, chapter five: ‘Fallen Warrior’

I should also add: we have two new artists to welcome to the site (one of whom actually came on with the previous chapter but whom I forgot to mention in that post). So a very warm welcome to Elad Tibi and MioneBookworm! And while we’re at it, we have some absolutely beautiful new banner artwork, courtesy of the fantastic reallycorking. Enjoy!

  1. so true.. after reading the title I was so sure that Hagrid was dead..But Made Eye’s death was also shocking

  2. Yes, that was a very effective chapter title. I was on the edge of my seat as I read the chapter, wondering who was dead.
