The Daily Dialogue theme for the week: Clairvoyance. Today’s suggestion by Will King.
Trivia: J.K. Rowling based the dementors on her battle with depression.
Dialogue On Dialogue: Commentary by Will: “Up to this point, Professor Trelawney has appeared to be a somewhat distracted, less-than-fully-aware character. Her build-up to this moment painted her as hardly someone to be wary of. Even after her pronouncement she seems completely unaware of what just transpired. It was a choice bit of writing to use her to deliver this prophecy, which heightened the gravity of its importance to Harry.”
