not even if he was ready to do it right after sending out the AK? not

No, not even then. And I think it is important to convince you (and the
rest) of this before book 7 comes out, because nowhere have I said I
don't think JKR is harebrained enough to think she can fit the "Harry
is a horcrux" theory into her writing.
isn't this a big presumption on your part (that if harry was a horcrux
it'll take a lot of writing to incorporate)? seeing as, if harry is a
horcrux, you don't know what part it will play.
She certainly could be planning on doing so, and I'm not about to argue
whether this is her plan or not. This is what I'm arguing: It just
isn't physically possible.
so, if she was planning to do so how can it be physically impossible?
seems to me you are basing this on your assumption that a spell can't
be cast in a split second.
It's one thing if he remembered about the
ancient magic protection. Perhaps there might have been a way for him
to protect against the rebounded AK. He didn't, however. He admits
that he forgot about it.
but surely LV wouldn't have time to remember the protection, think of a
way to protect himself and then try it out?
No, he means that he would have been prepared if he had realized there
could have actually been protection.
You're misinterpreting V's comments greatly in your favor by taking
them to mean that he could have defended against the rebounding AK if
he realized the protection *after* casting the spell.
i never misinterpreted LV's comments in this way. hence why I said "but
surely LV wouldn't have time to remember the protection, think of a way
to protect himself and then try it out?"
variable is that while we can be reasonably certain that the AK kills
immediately after the words are said,
i'm not so sure
we don't have any information as
to the length of time it takes for the rebounding effect (perhaps it IS
slightly slower) because it never happened before, and Jo hasn't
written anything about it.
i think what has been written implies the AK takes more time than no
time to hit its target.
Even if it travels at the speed of light, it would take more time than
sigh, context Aaron, context! you're so adament that you can say 'light
speed ~= electon speed' because we are talking about human noticable
time. well how about bearing that in mind when you read my posts? i am
saying that wizards don't necessarily think spells happen
instantaneously whereas the light goes on instantaneously when the
flick a switch
You seem to be under the impression that speed of light =

It does not. But, it does pretty much guarantee that you can't react in
