Favorite Trelawney Prophecy
Ok so this one may not be considered a real prophecy, but my favorite one is when Trelawney refuses to sit down at the dinner table for Christmas because of the unlucky number of diners. So it's more of a superstition really than a prophecy.
"I dare not, Headmaster! If I join the table, we shall be thirteen! Nothing could be more unlucky! Never forget that when thirteen dine together, the first to rise will be the first to die!"
When Harry and Ron both jump up from the table at the same time, she hysterically asks which one of them got up first. I love McGonagall's disdain with the silliness.
Do you count it as coming true that Dumbledore rose to greet her when she came in and he was the first to die?
