I didn't give anything away, Beth. I was actually referring to the Ron/Hermione scene early in the book. But the publisher cut it, so it will appear in the Unrated Author's Special Edition due out next year with an unmarked black cover. There's also
special edition that clears up
super-gay Dumbledore really was. I won't tell you what color that cover will be...

Wait...... Ron doesn't die? OMG, spoiler!

You make a very valid point, Matthew but why wasn't she as forthcoming about Ron and his need for Hermione to dress in a big, fuzzy bunny rabbit costume before they made children? Or the fact that Hermione spent the aforementioned child-making sessions fantasizing about her old Hogwarts P.E. teacher, that sturdily built woman Rowling never names who wore her hair short on top and long in the back?
What is Rowling trying to hide from her fans, Matthew??

I know you're playing the "why out Dumbledore" thing for comedy, but it wasn't really as if it was a calculated decision on her part. It wasn't a publicity stunt or anything. She was in a Q&A session, was asked a direct question about Dumbledore's love life, and so she admitted the full truth about his love life. Not exactly an out of context press release or anything.
