HP Musings at halftime (no spoilers)

I found myself reflecting, at halfway through "HP and the Deathly Hallows," that we might be channelling from some similar source material to B5, in some ways. I keep also thinking of how parts of the saga resonate to the rise of Stalinist Russia. I also found myself thrown into flashbacks to Animal Farm (which of course, is a fable about same). Is this story really about Harry? Once this hit me, I was no longer sure.

I suppose all will be made clear as I finish the second half.

Somewhere in the back of my head, I keep hearing Caddellyn saying "...and the gallantry of children shall be lost in the greater fight." (Yes, I'm hearing echos of different wizards from different sagas...)
