004: Interesting tidbit
I recently discovered Pottercasts on The Leaky Cauldron and they satisfy a need I have had to listen to/read other crack theories about Book 7. I used to be subscribed to Mugglecast , but I did not like their format. They were all over the place at times. :/ Pottercast #69 even featured a phone-in from Evanna Lynch who plays Luna Lovegood in the upcoming film!! So...if you ever visit that site, without subscribing necessarily, you can follow the link for that episode and dl it for free. It is very much worth it!
In the most recent PC, they mentioned one of the relics of the Founders being a wand, possibly. Thus far there is a sword of Godric Gryffindor, a cup of Helga Hufflepuff (mentioned in Book 6), Slytherin's locket (also mentioned in B6, but as yet no relic belonging to Rowena Ravenclaw, that we know of. It has been suggested that there is a tiara floating around that could be linked with Ravenclaw.
So in accordance with a train of thought centering around the suits of the Tarot (wands, cups, pentacles, and swords), someone thought that a wand might be a logical progression. I do not associate lockets either with pentacles or with 'earth' so I think that that logic is already broken. Rowena Ravenclaw's wand??
Then this brought to my mind another thought: What happens to a wizard's wand after they die? Neville used his father's wand for awhile but it was snapped in two during their jaunt to the Ministry of Magic. His father and mother are not deceased though they reside, presumably irretrievably, at St. Mungo's...having lost their minds when Bellatrix cruio'ed them for information. :(
After Luna's mum died (she mentions in Book 5 that she was a great witch who liked to experiment and that she died as the result of an unfortunate accident) what happened to her wand?
