So despite all those threads and questions a few months ago, I'm still really confused about the whole prophecy thing. On Lily's Lexicon page, it says this:
Is it an established canon fact that Voldemort waited to see what babies were born before he chose who to target? I haven't got my books with me so I can't check those chapters. If it's a fact then it'll iron out some problems I've been having, but it will mean I have to re-write pretty much all of my fic (it's only two chapters so far, so it's not a huge deal).Quoted from the Lexicon:
The prophecy foretold the birth of a boy "with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord" at the end of July, so as soon as Lily became pregnant the Potters went into hiding (OBT/CH). Voldemort waited to see what children were born, and began planning the murder of the Potter family (OP37, HBP25).
What do people think?
