People, what do you think Ravenclaw's relic (that might have been turned into a Horcrux) might be? I'm doing a picture of her and wanted to put her 'thing' in the pic. Like I did with Godric and his sword. We know Hufflepuff had a wee cup, and Slytherin had a locket... 

shocolate, I know you had Ravenclaw's being a necklace in your most excellent story, but does anyone remember what those Arthurian things/items were that were being bandied about a while back? I've forgotten and want to save myself a bit of time looking for it. :~P  So if any of you can remember off the top of your head I'd be very grateful!!

There's a theory I've heard about her relic being a tiara. As we all know, JK Rowling has a way of barely mentioning things that end up being important later (the locket making a seemingly unimportant appearance in OotP, for example) and I think this might be another instance. There is a tiara mentioned in HBP when Harry goes to the Room of Requirement to hide his Potions book and although it really could just be nothing, it could also be that the tiara was mentioned for a reason. Ravenclaw's relic, perhaps? I think the idea definitely has some merit.

I may sound dumb, but
"the locket making a seemingly unimportant appearance in OotP" ?
When? I really don't remember...

Well, it isn't confirmed that it was ACTUALLY Slytherin's locket, but I am pretty sure and I know quite a few others who are convinced as well. In Chapter 6 of OotP when they are all cleaning up Grimmauld Place, they find quite a few old items in the drawing room. Most of it is just rubbish but one of the items they mention finding is "a heavy locket that no one could open." This could very well be Slytherin's locket that they came across. Now there are a number of ways it could have gotten there, each one as likely as the next but in the end, I think this is the Slytherin Horcrux!

Oh, yes. I remember! Thanks!

My pet theory is that that locket is indeed Slytherin's and the fact that the initials on the note in the fake are "R.A.B" just seems to confirm that. C'mon; who else do we know who got mentioned in passing--twice--as having those initials and being killed for betraying Voldemort?

Of course, I'm sure a frillion people have that theory...
