Ron's Talent

Prediction:

That it will be revealed that Ron does have Seer abilities, and that this will be of crucial assistance to Harry, possibly in the battle with Voldemort and how to defeat him.

Reasoning:

We know that Ron has, on a number of occasions, made off the cuff remarks that have come to fruition in the future, and indeed others have noticed this too. I believe Ron is quite astute, and has a courageous and loving heart, and that his ability to predict the future as it were could assist his greatest friend in his greatest hour of need. I am aware that Ron is not part of the prophecy as such, but I still think he will figure in the climax of the Septology!!

Re: Ron's Talent

Voted:

No

Reasoning:

I really think that if Ron was truly a Seer, he would be having better luck with Divination. Although I do think that a lot of his guesses seem to be more than chance, I don't think anything bigger will really come of it.
I really think that since a lot of these "predictions" were made in a sarcastic tone, Ron was just guessing things that he thought were so out there they would never have a chance of coming true, yet coincidentally they did...

Re: Ron's Talent

Yes, definitely, Ron has Seer abilities

Although I think a third option of a little seer would be preffered

Reasoning

I dont think he is a true seer - although I do think he has some seer skills ...
It has to be more than a coincidence he can make theses predicitions of his own fate and others - but he has no idea he is doing it - so once again not a true seer - but has some skills!

No - but it was a difficult choice.

Reasoning

Apart from Ron's off the cuff remarks, nothing he has done has really shown to me that he has Seer abilities. Of course it could be he is surpressing it all and I do like that idea, but I dont think he actually has the ablity, I think he just has a natural knack for predicting disaster.

Re: Ron's Talent

Voted:
No

Reason:
All the things that Ron said that could be taken as "little predicting" was out of the blue and totally random and fitted with just the coincidence.

And Voldy's gone moldy, so now let's have fun!
"Really gives a feeling for the scope and tragedy of the thing, doesn't it?" said Ron.
