It's official, people--The title of Book Seven!
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was the title released to a number of fans (Including yours truly) who finally got their chance to open the Do Not Disturb door on jkrowling.com. After a difficult(ish) puzzle to solve, we were treated to a wonderful game of HangMan, where you had to guess the answer to "Harry Potter and the _______ _______". As of now it is still open to do the challenge, so get over there and solve it for yourself!
To discuss this title with other fans, go to this board on the Leaky Lounge.

There was apparently a little problem with the news this week, and PotterCast editor Jeff, on the comments at PotterCast.com, said he fixed it. Good thing, too, I felt like I was listening to #66 all over again.
And then there were filks. All of them were absolutely AMAZING. Personally I liked "Do You Hear What I Hear?" which told of Colin Creevey spreading the latest news on Mr. Harry Potter, the best. It was QUITE amusing.
Verfy good show, and I can't wait for the next batch of filky goodness on 69!

It's pretty good. Not great, but good. Here's the link:
Update: In Comments, tell me what you think of the quiz and what YOUR result was. Apparently I'm John...I dunno if I like that idea. :S (JK John, if you're reading this)

What lies in the room is PROBABLY (not sure if it is confirmed or not) "something that is at the same time more terrible and wonderful than death".
I believe (Although I could be mistaken) that, somewhere back in the land of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Dumbledore said "Many men have wasted away in front of this mirror. While it is wonderful to see what we dearly desire, it does not do to dwell on dreams" or something like that, about a certain Mirror of Erised.
I sat there after PotterCast last week thinking...What if, and this is just my theory, in this locked room is the Mirror and that when we go there in the seventh book, Voldemort will see that what his deepest desire is, is to be loved by someone. That will be his downfall and Harry will defeat him there and then.

In this episode, we heard from a teacher who helped introduce a group of reluctant students into the Harry Potter books, an interesting Canon Conundrums about the locked room in the Ministry, and some pantsless John stories...very disturbing.
So go download it. Now. www.pottercast.com and click Direct Download. Trust me, it's for your own good.
All in all one of the better episodes in my opinion. Can't wait for #68!

If you aren't a Potter fan, download it anyway. You'll surely get a kick out of it one way or another.
