Harry Potter

Can anybody tell me what the dementors made Dudley hear at the beginning of book 5? That question is NEVER ANSWERED.

The thread will be locked when I get my answer.

That's an interesting question considering Harry Pottwer was written decades ago. From what I remember, this question wasn't answered in the books. You have to use your imagination and apply what you think had happened.

It's one of those beautiful mysteries that must never be answered.

Oh, okay: according to Rowling, he saw himself as he truly was - a spoiled bully. That was what made him become more amicable to Harry in book 7.

He was shown exactly what Dumbledor's brother did with those goats.

(Also cool move there J.K., having a gay character but like, only when the books were all over and done with. You CAN have your cake and eat it too!)

Who says it was over and done with? Remember rita's letter alluding to Dumbledore's "disturbing relationship" with Harry?

The scariest moment of Dudley's life I can think of was getting a pig's tail, but if Rowling said he saw himself as a spoiled bully, well, it's time to lock the thread.
