• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"From this point forth, we shall be leaving the firm foundation of fact and journeying together through the murky marshes of memory into thickets of wildest guesswork."
Dumbledore, Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince, chapter ten

The Epileptic Trees that sprouted during the time between each of the books in the Harry Potter series could fill over a dozen pages. For the sake of brevity, this link includes theories that were either confirmed or Jossed by Deathly Hallows. This link is for guesses about the characters within any of Beedle's tales, the artifacts described therein, or Beedle himself.

Also keep in mind that these are guesses about the books. If you have a WMG about the movies, specifically, use the Wild Mass Guessing page for the films, since with the length of the page a folder would have to be split soon anyway. Do NOT confuse a book character with the actor who plays them in the movie, or the continuity and timeline in the films. The characters were created in the early 1990s, before some of the actors were born. The Millennium Bridge (destroyed near the beginning of Film 6) wasn't built until after the time of the books' climax. Only the movie version of Lucius Malfoy tried to Avada Kedavra Harry in Year 2. [1]

Due to the huge number of guesses, the WMG pages for the books themselves have been split up into four parts:

  1. The actor simply spouted a curse that came to his head, unaware that it was the Unforgivable Killing Curse.)
