The Craziest Harry Potter Fan Theories That Could Be True Part 1

哈利波特迷最靠谱的脑洞(上)

There’s nothing like a batch of Harry Potter fan theories straight out of the piping hot cauldron of the internet to make the day seem brighter. The Potter books and films are seemingly made for fan theories, with new ones popping up daily. Rowling’s (or should we call her Rita?) vibrant world is dissected all the time despite the fact that the first book, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, was published in 1997. Even Rowling enjoys Harry Potter universe theories. She particularly likes the one about Dumbledore being Death in the Deathly Hallows story of the Peverell brothers. She said, “It fits.”

没有什么能比一群哈利波特迷从火热的互联网坩埚里脑补出的理论更能给日子增添色彩了。《哈利·波特》系列丛书和电影似乎就是为粉丝的脑洞创作的,每天都有全新的脑洞出现。尽管该系列第一部《哈利·波特与魔法石》于1997年出版,但每时每刻人们都在分析罗琳(或者我们应该称她《预言家日报》的Rita?)笔下的魔法世界。甚至连罗琳本人也很喜欢哈利波特宇宙的各种说法。她特别喜欢的脑洞是邓布利多是《哈利·波特与死亡圣器》佩弗利尔三兄弟故事中的死神。她认为:“很有道理。”

But does the fan theory that Ginny slipped Harry a magical love roofie fit? Because for the longest time, it seemed like she was the only one carrying a torch, and Harry couldn’t have cared less. How about this one: Dumbledore is actually Ron? And George Weasley is Willy Wonka? Yep, there are some pretty wild, yet fun, Harry Potter theories out there.

但是,金妮偷偷给哈利下了迷情药的粉丝脑洞合理吗?因为在很长一段时间里,似乎只有她单恋着哈利,而哈利根本不理睬她。那这个呢?邓布利多的真实身份是罗恩?乔治·韦斯莱是来自巧克力工厂的威利·旺卡?确实,有各种各样的疯狂但很有趣的哈利波特脑洞。

Which Harry Potter fan theory makes the most sense? Point your wand at the ones you think are most likely to be true.

哪个脑洞最合理、最像回事?拿起你的魔杖,选择你认为最靠谱的那一个吧。

1. Neville Longbottom Uses The Wrong Wand

纳威·隆巴顿用了错误的魔杖

Because he chose his father's wand, Neville didn’t let the wand choose him. This explains the constant misfires, but it worked well enough because it was his dad’s. When Neville’s wand is broken at the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, he gets a new one at Ollivander’s. This time, the wand chose him and helped him become the leader of Dumbledore’s Army in his seventh year.

因为纳威选择的是父亲的魔杖,他并没有让魔杖选择自己的主人。这就解释了为什么他会经常失手,但因为魔杖是他爸爸的,所以也足以日常使用。当纳威的魔杖在神秘事务司大战中折断了后,他在奥利凡德店里得到了一根新魔杖。这一次魔杖选择了他,这也使他在七年级成为了邓布利多军的领袖。

2. Trelawney Was Right About Harry’s Birth Date

占卜课特里劳妮教授对哈利出生日期的判断是正确的

Even though Harry was born in July, Trelawney tells Harry he was born in midwinter.

尽管哈利出生在七月,但占卜课的特里劳妮教授告诉哈利他出生于隆冬。

That’s because a part of Voldemort’s soul was inside Harry, and Tom Riddle was born on December 31, smack in the middle of the winter season.

那是因为伏地魔的一部分灵魂在哈利的体内,而汤姆·里德尔(伏地魔真名)出生于12月31日,正好就是冬季中旬。

3. Voldemort, Harry, And Snape Are The Three Brothers And Dumbledore Is Death

伏地魔、哈利·波特和斯内普是三兄弟,邓布利多是死神

This fan theory states that the three characters are the three brothers from the "Tale of Three Brothers" story in Deathly Hallows and that Dumbledore is Death. The story goes that the brothers meet Death on the road. Death offers them their deepest desires in exchange for their souls. The first wishes for a powerful weapon and is given the Elder Wand. The second asks Death to bring back his wife and receives the Resurrection Stone. The third brother cleverly asks for a way to hide from Death and is given the Cloak of Invisibility. Voldemort dies for power, Severus dies for love, and Harry speaks to his old friend, Dumbledore/Death, in the afterlife.?

这个粉丝脑洞认为,这三个人物是《哈利·波特与死亡圣器》中“三兄弟故事”中的三兄弟,而邓布利多就是死神。故事是这样的,三兄弟在路上遇到了死神,死神让他们交出自己的灵魂,以换取实现内心最深的渴望。老大的愿望是得到一件强大的武器,他拿到了老魔杖。老二要求死神复活他的妻子,他得到了复活石。老三聪明地想找个办法躲避死神,于是得到了一件隐形斗篷。而相应地,伏地魔为权力而死,斯内普为爱情而死,而哈利在来世与他的老朋友邓布利多(即死神)对话。

Rowling loves the Dumbledore theory, tweeting, “Dumbledore as death. It's a beautiful theory and it fits.”?

罗琳很喜欢这个关于邓布利多的脑洞,她在推特上写道:“邓布利多是死神,这是一个不错的想法,它很有道理。”

Further, Dumbledore represents all three brothers. When he was young, he sought power. He lost his sister and might have longed to see her again. And he wasn’t afraid to die, greeting it “like an old friend.”

此外,邓布利多本人也代表着三兄弟。在年轻时,他追求权力。失去了妹妹后,他也许很想再见到她。而且他并不害怕死亡,“像老朋友一样”迎接死亡。
