JKR Devistated if anyone guesssed

In an interview she said that there was something about the series that she would be absolutely devistated if anyone guessed, anyone want to take a stab at this one?

* EDIT: I got this wrong, here is what she said exactly:

JKR: I don't really want to say as it will ruin all the fan sites. They have such fun with their theories - and it is fun, it is fun. And some of them even get quite close. No-one has ever - I have gone and looked at some of it and no-one's ever... There is one thing that if anyone guessed I would be really annoyed as it is kind of the heart of it all. And it kind of explains everything and no-one's quite got there but a couple of people have skirted it.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertain...ts/3004456.stm

So she didn't say devastated and I can't edit the title, and for some reason, I cannot reply to threads that I start?

Anyway, any clues to what this might be?

Re: JKR Devistated if anyone guesssed

Can you point us to the full text of the interview? I've never heard anything of the kind.

Edit: O.K., thanks for the link.
Well, what I think it is: First, the "Harry is a horcrux" element, and,
second, the fact that Harry has got some extra protection because LV used his blood.

Re: JKR Devistated if anyone guesssed

I've thought about this one for a long time----since the first time I read that interview---seems like ages ago. After finishing DH my gut tells me that it was that the protection Lily gave Harry in dying for him out of her love for him was what would end up saving everyone in the end----when Harry willingly sacrificed himself to save the lives of thousands, he spread the "love protection" over all the people he loved. Also notice that throughout DH Harry refuses to sink to the level of Voldemort and his DEs time and again. He has numerous opportunities to either kill someone outright or leave them for dead and he puts himself in deeper and deeper peril each time he goes out of his way to spare or save their lives. He built a great number of "life debts", like the one he was owed by Pettigrew, throughout the book. Even in the end, he did not go for the kill----he only sought to disarm him. Love and mercy saved the day, and Harry's soul remains without blemish.

Re: JKR Devistated if anyone guesssed

I don't think that it was the HiaH thing, or Harrry's mothers protection now in Voldemort's blood, we had threads on both of those . . . but seperate. perhaps that was what she was eluding to, that the combination of those two very things is what Brought about the way Harry "died", and could live again. For some reason it never occured to us to put the two together!
