Follow the owls? Why couldn't it be follow the butterflies?

t wouldn't have worked! The reason why the owls found who they were sent to, is because that person wanted to be found by said owls. Seirus wanted to talk to Harry, so Hedwig was the only owl who could find him; and, I imagine, Harry's friends, given that they're so close.

This also gives meaning for the beginning of the story; al those owls, that would seem to grow more and more in number, trying to get letters to harry, were there because Harry really, REALLY wanted to leave that house, even if he didn't know for sure where he was going.

the Ministry did send out its own owls, and did watch out for Hedwig to see where he was going. What they did was the following: Sirius puts charms around his area so he's unplottable (similar to Hogwarts, Durmstrang, and the Quidditch World Cup). Then Sirius sends some owl the Ministry won't recognise, and Harry sends his message back. There is a bit of magic involved, like how the owls truly know where to go and who to send it to. But basically the Ministry can't control every owl to see if any post is addressed to Harry Potter or to Sirius Black. Even if they found it, they usually didn't say names. They just said things like "Hey Padfoot, that thing we talked about last time happened again. Want to meet like we did last time at 1AM on Saturday?"

Nah, that'd be 						******					 up, dood, you don't follow people's owls. That's like staring at another guy's junk at the urinals, it's just not right.

**bslsk rolled comment #20 ** :
I use www.mathway.com

You still have to subscribe for the step-by-step but I feel it's more organized when entering the equation.




This is what the letter would say.

kind of extreme, but what if he used a fidelius charm when he set up somewhere long term and made himself secret keeper (im not sure if you can be your own secret keeper) and told the secret to the owl he sent to harry, but not harry himself. Sirius then asked harry to stop sending hedwig because he would have to leave his hideout so hedwig could find find him, and instead used the owl sirius would send him.

man...I had a few good warhammer 40k pictures depicting them strangling Harry Potter and saying things along the lines of "suffer not the witch to live" but then my hard drive got wiped and now it's gone....


Magic and **** man, they ain't gotta explain ****

That's one of the things that always bothered me while reading the books.

RSA owls of course.

You're not supposed to think about these kind of things, because if you did you'd realize that the Harry Potter universe makes no goddamn sense. Doesn't stop them from being amazing books though

Hedwig knows how to find him because Sirius told Harry where he was.
