The Deathly Hallows: Has the Lady Rowling Gone Bonkers @ Last?

Well, Mortals, at last Year Seven at Hogwarts finally has an official title --- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The repercussions of this news are once more, even as I write, being felt across the world. And, needless to say, much speculation is mounting --- even as Order of the Phoenix, The Movie is being prepared for its July 2007 release.

As you already know, goodly gentles, nothing surprises your Dragonmaster! My foresight tells me that once Half-Blood Prince begins principal photography, Warners will get the word out to David Heyman, said word being: "Get Deathly Hallows into development!" Which in turn means, as if we weren't aware of it already, that Radcliffe, Grint, Watson and the rest will all be placed on full alert. The one thing a potential film version of Deathly Hallows lacks, of course, will be a director.

There is earthquake activity even now over at The Leaky Cauldron as well as at HPANA --- and anywhere else where there's tons of Potter to be found on the web! But clearly, I also sense that I have not completely answered the question posed by the today's title: has the Lady Rowling gone bonkers? If you will recall, 48 hours ago, prior to revealing the title, Jo admitted undergoing a bizarre series of dreams and nightmares while struggling to finish the few remaining chapters of the new book.
This would tell your Dragonmaster that she, Joanne Kathleen Rowling, now desires one thing: to end the Harry Potter legacy once and for all -- and escape her status as the richest woman in Great Britain!

Alas, the mere fact that she has written these seven novels will be her eternal legacy, despite her personal desires. Fame is a dangerous drug ---- horrifying if one cannot control it, idiotic if one continues to abuse it (I trust you're listening, Ryan Seacrest, mine own eternal enemy!) --- and easy to control if placed in the hands of one that is sensible, wise, and not willing to cherish the limelight for his/her personal gain. The point, kiddos, and there is one, is that fame can either grant you profit or it can destroy you. Jo's greatest fear, then, is that she does not wish to profit by her fame. She would rather destroy it than let that happen. The world, I fear, would rather that it be otherwise.

As always, America, I wanna know what you think. Gimme an e-mail at either or
