Just wondering who everyone thought might die in the last Harry Potter book coming out later this month.

I think he who shall not be named will bite it, its about time he does. Although evil never really dies.

Just finished reading House of Thunder by Dean Koontz. I am so glad I am finally done with it. I am currently reading Fear Nothing, and I got to say I love it so far!

I thought there were two dying.

Actually, Gemtaur, that is a common mistake when talking about the deaths in the final book. J.K. Rowling said that two people were going to die that she didn't expect to die. That means even more than two will die. She said it will be a bloodbath, after all, it is war.

Voldemort, Hagrid, Snape, and Wormtail are all my guess' that I feel pretty confident about dying.

Snape, never liked him at all from the movies, guess the guy plays the part well. As for the books, he is sinister but not so bad.

He's a jerk, and I love to hate him, and I'm sure he is a good guy, or at least on the good side.

I think a perverse part of me would like it if she killed Harry. I mean, a lot of people would go Annie Wilkes on her, but it would be unexpected and interesting.

unexpected to see Harry die?? I have heard many theorys that Harry dies. Mostly because JKR is afraid that others will continue her series after she is done. I assume that the "surprise" deaths will be Jenny Weasley and Hagrid. I think it is almost expected that Harry will die sacrificing himself to save Hermione and/or Ron.

I just ordered my book and it will ship after next Friday. Until then, I will avoid anything to do with the novel like the plague cause you KNOW some ass is going to try and ruin it for us all.


Also, to put Voldemort in this poll and NOT Harry Potter is short a few marbles. You stacked the deck here. I would say that your poll would be better if you hadn't put Voldemort in there at all. but that is just my opinion.

I don't think Harry will die. I don't want Harry to die. She is just using that excuse to keep people on the edge, so they don't know whether he will live or die. No matter, the book is done, whatever happens has already been decided. I can't wait to find out.

Harry dying so more people won't write about it is a lame excuse to me. People can still write about the wizarding world she created, and new characters that come to be years from now, and new villains that come to be.

Edit

I notice a lot of people get Ginny's name wrong. Is it the British version?

Sorry, I was in a hurry when I made the original post, and I MEANT to put Harry on it but goofed up and now don't know how to fix it. I shouldn't be able to post when in a hurry and tired.

And I don't think killing Harry would be so more people would write about it--the series is already the biggest thing in the literary world, she doesn't more press--and I also think it would be surprising. Lots of people discuss it, but I don't think anyone really believes it will happen.

I just know she said she has known the ending from the time she started, and I just hope she is true to that, whatever it is, and doesn't let all the success and fan pressure influence her.

Oh yeah, most definitely on that last part.

A long time ago she said the last word in the last book is going to be 'scar.' She said it could change. I wonder....

I don't know if I should start a new thread on this? I'm probably thread hijacking here, but it seems we are mostly done with the who will die discussion.

Remember the glimpse of triumph in Dumbledore's eye in GoF? She said that would be explained. I really want to know what it means. It happened right after Harry told him HOW Voldemort was resurrected. My guess was that Dumbledore then realized something important, as how to beat Voldemort, or maybe something about a horcrux. Everyone said that explanation was too simple. But those were the same people with the Ron is Dumbledore theory. I just have this feeling she will forget about that and not have it explained. I hope she ties in all loose ends, but at the low page count the book is at, it makes me wonder. The only thing I can think of is that Dumbledore left him a letter, or he talks to his portrait. Anything?

How about Neville? He seems like such a vulnerable character, but very noble. I could imagine him sacrificing his life for Harry's at the end of the book.

I never thought of that breezit, but yes. I actually have enjoyed Neville's development over the course of the novels, and that would be a very emotional death for me.

Just a heads' up folks...stay away from the internet if you don't want the book spoiled for you. Apparently, some idiot scanned and uploaded every page of the book to the net, after obtaining it early, somehow.

I say Hagrid bites it, as well as Voldemort.

The small town where my wife's chocolate shop is located is shutting the main street down and having this enormous Harry Potter festival. All the participating shops were assigned Hogsmeade names...for example, Russell's Delectables (my wife's shop) is now Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour. The stores are staying open until 1am...and then I'm sleeping in on Saturday, and reading all day :)

I'm pretty much staying away from a few message board sites until I read the final Potter book. There are too many trolls out there who would delight in ruining the ending for the rest of us.

I already knew in advance who was going to die in Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince, because someone posted spoilers on the internet that I saw by mistake.

Yeah, at a movie forum I browse, someone spoiled HBP by saying what happened in the topic. Avoid all forums (even this one from trolls) at all costs.

So the glimmer of triumph was because Voldemort used Harry's blood and Dumbledore knew what? That the were linked together or what...I'm not for sure??

What was the "Ron is Dumbledore" theory?

It never said for sure, but I think Dumbledore explained it during the final scenes. Ron is Dumbledore = time traveling Dumbledore. Basically he is Ron and is Harry's guardian during all the crazy events. They have the same hair and eye color. They are both good at chess. A bunch of other similarities. I guess since they both aren't gay that proves that theory wrong.
