I reread the Potter books and I really loved the flashbacks in HBP. I found the whole Merope story fascinating. But after rereading it I found my mind going down some rather nasty paths.

Marvolo doesn't seem the type to just sit back and let the Gaunt name die out, does he? He's so incredibly proud of his heritagage I think the idea of the family name dying out would be horrible to him.

But there aren't any Gaunts left to keep the line going. Except Merope and Morfin.

And there's only one Gaunt who can carry children.

...I mean...I don't think I'm the only one who's thought of this.

Merope seems so terrified of her father I can't help but wonder...

I agree. The only real problem I had with the way she handled Merope's story is that Harry seemed surprised that she would abandon her child - because I don't think any real part of her would have known, by that point, that not giving up was even an option... I mean, no one had ever done that for her, and she'd never seen it for herself... you know? Her story is so sad, but in spite of that she seemed like a good person thrown into the worst possible circumstances.
