Remember when Voldemort struck down Harry Potter in the series' finale, and then Harry woke up in a heavenly King's Cross station, where he met Dumbledore and learned just how f**ked he might've been?
Yeah, well this fairly decent theory from Reddit user WippitGuud, claims that Dumbledore was just spitting lies. Read and make of it for yourself:
When Harry was in Kings Cross in his head, he could have chosen to move on. Which means he was dead. There was some other force at work which gave him the choice to return to life, without needing the methods Voldemort had to use to create a new body. And Harry had something of that level of power with him - master of the united Hallows: he had the stone and the cloak, and the curse was cast from the Elder Wand, which he was currently master of.
Because Harry chose to not defend himself, the Wand was not defeating Harry, so its allegiance did not change. Dumbledore even comments on it, "And that, I think, will have made all the difference." Had he tried to duel, he would've lost allegiance to the wand when he lost, and simply died.
Dumbledore lied to Harry. Probably to protect him — knowing you're the master of the Hallows could make anyone power hungry.
“It would depend on the script,” Daniel Radcliffe told Radio Times. “The circumstances would have to be pretty extraordinary. But then I am sure Harrison Ford said that with Han Solo and look what happened there! So I am saying, ‘No,’ for now but leaving room to backtrack in the future.”
J.K. Rowling writes that Ilvermorny was a magical school of witchcraft and wizardry, founded by a pureblood Irish wizard named Isolt Sayre in the 17th century. Ilvermorny sat atop the highest peak of Mount Greylock enshrouded by powerful concealment enchantments.
Sayre was a descendant of Salazar Slytherin and the renowned Irish witch Morrigan. Sayre lived with her parents in a small Irish town till the day her mother's estranged sister Gormlaith Gaunt (pureblood zealot) murdered Sayre's parents and kidnapped her away to Hag's Glen to stop her from marrying a muggle.
A decade later, following imprisonment and continued attempts at indoctrinating Sayre, she stole her aunt's wand, and managed an escape.
Sayre went on to pose as a Muggle boy, sailing to the 'New World', where she came across a wealth of magical creatures and fellow wizards that'd ultimately help her create Ilvermorny.
The four Ilvermorny houses are named after magical creatures:
Horned Serpent – a ‘great horned river serpent with a jewel set into its forehead’
Pukwudgie – ‘a short, grey-faced, large-eared creature’
Thunderbird – a creature that ‘can create storms as it flies’
Wampus – ‘a magical, panther-like creature that is fast, strong and almost impossible to kill’
