I know this is a topic that has been discussed before, but it’s something I find very interesting to delve into. There are so many “what ifs” that we can explore in the Potter series, but I think this is one of the biggest ones. If Voldemort had interpreted the prophecy to mean Neville and his parents, there are quite a few things that would be different about the story. You see, it’s not as simple as switching characters and leaving the story and the outcome the same. Different characters react to things in different ways and make different decisions that can completely change the course of a story. Read More »
