“Promptly Potter” Episode 180: “He’s the Boy Who Lived; He Can’t Just Die!”
– In Chapter 18 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Hermione shows Harry the copy of Rita Skeeter’s book, The Life and Lies of Albus Dumbledore, that she stole from Godric’s Hollow. The two of them read about Dumbledore’s past – at least, his past according to Rita Skeeter.
– Today’s prompt is “Does Dumbledore’s personal history contribute to or impact Harry’s actions in a meaningful way?”
– This episode is hosted by Princess Jhode Datu.
