At the beginning of the new Fantastic Beasts the Crimes of Grindelwald trailer, we hear Dumbledore speak to Newt of a safe house in france “should things go terribly wrong you will have a place to go”.
We know that Nicholas Flamel lives in Paris and we know that he will be in the next movie due to the last trailer, so I wondered, what if the safe house is where Nicholas Flamel lives? Now for those of you who
-A:like Fantastic Beasts and not Harry Potter, or
-B:just forgot who Nicholas Flamel is,
Nicholas Flamel is the only known maker of the sorcerer’s stone, or philosopher’s stone depending on where you are from. The stone can turn any metal into gold and is also used to make the elixir of life with which Nicholas Flamel keeps himself and his wife alive with for some 600 years more than their lifespan would have been. We know that NIcholas Flamel trusts Dumbledore enough to essentially ask Dumbledore to protect his lifeline, the sorcerer’s stone(in the book “Harry Potter and the sorcerer’s stone”) so why wouldn’t he ask Dumbledore to make him and his wife a safe house?
Now you may be wondering why in the world would Nicholas flamel be living in a safe house. Well think of it as if you are Nicholas flamel and you created an extremely sought after object, plus you are the only one who knows how to make it, you will be somewhat of a target won’t you? Wouldn’t you maybe won’t to protect yourself from possible threats/enemies? Especially if you are rather frail and just want a peaceful life with your wife. And so wouldn’t you in his shoes, contact the strongest, most powerful wizard friend that you know to protect you especially seen as a certain dark wizard who has an affinity for wanting strong magical objects to make himself master of death? So what if Dumbledore made a safe house for Nick and Nick offered to have the safe house also used as a place for Dumbledore “agents” to go in case of emergency to repay the favor?
Well I guess that we can we will only know after the next Fantastic Beasts movie comes out for which I just can’t wait. Thanks for reading and we will see you in our next theory or review.
