Mundungus and Snape

I don't have my book and won't for awhile to look it up ( my college student son is too poor to buy his own copy) so can someone look it up for me. Mundungus was the one to suggest having 7 Harrys when the order escorted him from Privet Drive and Snape planted that idea? What was Mundungus doing around Snape? He was thought to be a death eater and Dung was in the Order.
Was Dung how Snape found out about the moving of Harry to begin with, so that Snape and DD's portrait could discuss it? Or was someone else in contact with DD's portrait and told him and then DD told Snape?

Re: Mundungus and Snape

It is on page 688, I just looked, and it doesn't say how Dumbledore knows the correct date, and it cuts right to Snape confounding Mundungas Fletcher, it doesn't show how Snape managed to corner Mundungas or whatever, So we don't know how Dumbledore knew and we don't now how Snape caught up with Dung.

It also doesn't say how Snape is in Dumbledore's office talking to Dumbledore in July, when he hasn't taken over Hogwarts yet. Because the Ministry hasn't even fallen yet etc.

Wouldn't it have made more sense to just make Harry look like one of the others? Instead of having everyone look like Harry?

Re: Mundungus and Snape

Interesting Piper. If Harry went as one of the Weasleys or something the Death-Eaters wouldn't know who was who.

Maybe they assumed that all would be at risk that way and the Death Eaters would go after anyone and everyone and more deaths would occur.

Re: Mundungus and Snape

They did go after everyone...

I'd never thought of it - but making him look like a Weasley twin would make alot of sense.

I guess it's less of a classic Harry Potter image though.

Re: Mundungus and Snape

That just occured to me because in the book, Dumbledore tells Snape that it is the only way......

I am also wondering, why was it necessary for Snape to appear to Voldemort to be well informed on the comings and goings of the Order at this point? Snape had killed Dumbledore, the Order all hated him. Why would Voldemort have expected him to have important inside information? Why did they fell the need to change the plans and endanger so many when Snape was well trusted by Voldemort?

Re: Mundungus and Snape

Thanks Piper for looking that up for me. I have been wondering about that and when I get my book back I plan to reread that section.
As far as Snape being in the Headmaster's office in July, I could see him being there if he had already been named Headmaster, but how could he have been with everyone outraged with him killing DD and being thought a deatheater. This has to be another part of the plan DD had with Snape when he planned to have Snape Kill him. He had to have a way for him to get back in to Hogwarts so that he could talk to his portrait. The room of requirement still had the vanishing cabinet or maybe there was yet another secret passageway that only Headmaster's know about.
He must have stalked Dung or maybe DD told him Dung's favorite haunts and he just waited for an opportunity when Dung was alone. I don't think Dung would have associated with Snape after he kill DD even though Dung deals with criminals. I would like to think Dung drew the line with deatheaters.

Re: Mundungus and Snape

were the protections still around hogwarts? is it possible snape made it there because he was able to apparate in and out? dumbledore would have made it possible for Snape to get in to his office, i think, with the plan in place.

Re: Mundungus and Snape

I'm pretty sure it says, in Hogwarts: A History, that you can't ever apparate into Hogwarts. Someone, I think Hermione, mentioned it once in one of the earlier books.

I don't think that's DD's magic. I think that's just part of Hogwart's magic.

Re: Mundungus and Snape

Was Mundungus "the source we discussed" ? That is the phrase Snape used when he reported the date of Harry's removal from Privet Drive. If it was, why would Snape need to confund Dung? Doesn' t confunding someone just make them a little confused? When Hermione confunded McLageen in HBP at Quidditch try outs " he shot off in completely the wrong direction" but he still remembered what was going on. Dung would have remembered Snape being there wouldn't he?
